The crime wave spells big trouble ahead for Biden, even CNN says so…

President Biden plans a big speech later today to address some startling statistics: The murder rate is up almost 25%, even more in big cities and shows no sign of slowing down.  Of course, the increase in crime has absolutely nothing to do with the defund the police movement.  There’s nothing to see here, please… Continue reading The crime wave spells big trouble ahead for Biden, even CNN says so…

The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

From the Compromise of 1790 onward, the American system is built around establishing broad consensus for major issues, passing bipartisan legislation where both parties get something they want.  The result is increased ownership of government programs and less acrimony.  Isn’t that what everyone claims to want for America? Earlier this month, a bipartisan group of… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

Biden’s big overseas trip, but where’s the beef?

President Joe Biden attended two summits with other world leaders and met with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time.  There’s no question the style and tone marked a radical departure from former President Trump.  The real question is whether or not he accomplished anything except talk. President Joe Biden has had a busy… Continue reading Biden’s big overseas trip, but where’s the beef?

Media Malpractice: Another Fevered Fantasy Completely Dissipates, Revealing an Unmistakable, Oft-Repeated Pattern of False Reporting

This time they claimed Trump intentionally tear gassed peaceful protestors for a photo-op last summer, but the official Inspector General report says otherwise.  From the origins of coronavirus to the attack on the Capitol, a pattern has emerged: Explosive reporting, written before the facts could possibly be in, inevitably implodes sooner or later.  Are claims… Continue reading Media Malpractice: Another Fevered Fantasy Completely Dissipates, Revealing an Unmistakable, Oft-Repeated Pattern of False Reporting

A beatdown at the border on Vice President Harris’ first overseas trip

Cookies with her likeness and a fawning media can’t cover up strong words from the Guatemalan President, a terrible interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, and an inability to concede that actually visiting the border in the middle of a border crisis might be a good idea.  Don’t worry though, she’s going to rebuild Central America… Continue reading A beatdown at the border on Vice President Harris’ first overseas trip

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!

Biden hopes his bloated budget passes without notice

Not surprising, when he plans to spend enough per household to buy every family in the country a new BMW every year, and accrue enough debt for a new Ferrari after 10 years.  What’s not to like about doubling the size of the government from just before the pandemic?  It’s historic and just what the… Continue reading Biden hopes his bloated budget passes without notice

Biden: The Passive President?

For decades if not centuries, Americans have expected energy in the Executive.  Founder Alexander Hamilton laid out his vision of energy as a “leading character in the definition of good government,” a concept embraced by even his rivals like Thomas Jefferson.  Where does current President Joe Biden fit in? Throughout much of American history there… Continue reading Biden: The Passive President?

For much of the media and many Democrats, it’s still all Donald Trump all the time

We’re in the  middle of the worst surge on the border in 20 years, the highest inflation in about 15, the worst violence in the Middle East in 6, the highest gas prices in several, the lowest job growth in months, not to mention the tail-end of a global pandemic, but sure, let’s spend more… Continue reading For much of the media and many Democrats, it’s still all Donald Trump all the time

Iran is the real problem in the Middle East and they are testing President Biden

The latest round of the long-simmering Israeli-Palestinian conflict is undoubtedly funded and fully approved by Iran.  Hamas receives $100 million per year in money and weaponry from the terrorist state.  They certainly don’t operate autonomously.  Why is next to no one talking about the real driving force behind the violence? The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has exploded,… Continue reading Iran is the real problem in the Middle East and they are testing President Biden
