One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

Democrats and the mainstream media repeatedly warn that democracy itself is in peril, under attacks not seen since the Civil War, while simultaneously pushing to demolish key pillars of our system of government included but not limited to the filibuster, the Electoral College, and the composition of the Supreme Court.  It’s almost like democracy means… Continue reading One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

Radical change in America is hard for a reason, progressives should learn it well at their own peril

If you think the government is dysfunctional now, imagine what it will look like when every department and program is subject to an endless, see-saw partisan battle, coming and going practically with each election cycle.  That’s precisely what will happen if 50 votes is the new 60 in the Senate. As Democrats press ahead with… Continue reading Radical change in America is hard for a reason, progressives should learn it well at their own peril

The media suddenly rediscovers the importance of party loyalty and encourages the harassment of Democrat women

Completely gone are the odes to objectors and dissent common when a Republican is in office.  Loyalty at all costs is demanded to pass a progressive agenda, and even President Biden says following women into the bathroom and filming them in protest is just “part of the process.”  Didn’t everyone claim this guy was a… Continue reading The media suddenly rediscovers the importance of party loyalty and encourages the harassment of Democrat women

The bipartisan infrastructure push, part two: This is definitely not the way things are supposed to work

Call it a no-compromise compromise:  Democrats use the Republicans to provide their stamp of approval on a portion of their wishlist, then violate the longstanding democratic norms they claim to care so much about by going it alone on the rest.  Even more incredibly, President Biden made this announcement on the very same day he… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push, part two: This is definitely not the way things are supposed to work

Democracy under assault, I know this because the media told me so!

While Democrats and the mainstream media manufacture the meme that Republicans and conservatives are engaged in an all out assault on democracy so dire that the Republic itself might not survive, it might be helpful to consider their own record on the matter.  It was less than a year ago they undertook a revolution in… Continue reading Democracy under assault, I know this because the media told me so!

The filibuster is racist now too

Can someone please ask Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden why they were supporting racism for decades by liberally using the practice?  They were all for it before they were against it, but now the filibuster is a very bad tool of white supremacy, amazing how that works. Former President Barack Obama set the… Continue reading The filibuster is racist now too

Whatever liberals don’t like is unconstitutional

From the filibuster to originalist interpretation of the Constitution, liberal scholars increasingly insist that their point of view is privileged, even when it changes, and even when they’re making up the facts and obfuscating themselves.  Translation:  Whatever positions liberals hold at the moment are the only viable positions, everyone else is either lying, misinformed, or insane.… Continue reading Whatever liberals don’t like is unconstitutional
