Biden: Cynical, dumb, hopeless, or all three at the same time?

The President has chosen to mount a self-interested defense of democracy as his closing message for the midterm elections rather than defend his own record.  It’s one of the most cynical strategies in modern memory for furthering dividing Americans in the obvious pursuit of power.  It’s also dumb and hopeless because voters know the deal.… Continue reading Biden: Cynical, dumb, hopeless, or all three at the same time?

Russia Collusion Redux

The FBI wouldn’t open an investigation on suspect grounds, staff it with haters of former President Trump, and deploy the most intrusive means imaginable predicated on lies and half truths, would they?  Sadly, we already know the answer to this question… Last week, we learned that former President Donald Trump is under investigation for violations… Continue reading Russia Collusion Redux

FBI raid: Biden’s conflict of interest is unresolvable and Republicans need to do more than demand answers

If President Biden and Attorney General Garland believe a conviction of Trump for any potential crime would prevent him from running again, clearing the field of the most likely candidate, they cannot be trusted to remain objective. Republicans can shut down the Senate until they provide satisfactory answers. In the wake of the FBI raid… Continue reading FBI raid: Biden’s conflict of interest is unresolvable and Republicans need to do more than demand answers

Love it or hate it, it’s a whole new Washington DC and America at large with the Democrats in charge

Biden is officially sworn in as President with a big speech, bigger executive actions, an adoring mainstream media, an incoming migrant caravan, a pause on deportations, and a small crowd with most of the Capitol on lockdown while the shadow of Trump still looms. Plus, what’s this new equity word? “The contrast on display tonight… Continue reading Love it or hate it, it’s a whole new Washington DC and America at large with the Democrats in charge

Are “stolen” elections the new normal?

This is the third (or maybe even fourth) election out of the last six with claims of fraud, subterfuge, and even foreign vote tampering I understand the urge for Democrats to insist Republicans accept the results of the 2020 election and move on.  If the roles were reversed, I’d surely be singing the same tune,… Continue reading Are “stolen” elections the new normal?
