The Democrats January 6th festival of the absurd and obscene

Vice President Kamala Harris invokes attacks that killed thousands of Americans and launched wars that killed thousands more.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi welcomes Darth Vader with open arms and takes a break for a musical interlude.  President Biden launches the 2024 campaign, and says we’re in a battle for the soul of America, except he’s on… Continue reading The Democrats January 6th festival of the absurd and obscene

Jussie Smollett: Reactions reveal a warped vision of social justice writ large

Mr. Smollett lied to the police and fanned the simmering flames of racial resentment, but many progressives think he’s not to blame.  Instead, it’s the justice system itself or perhaps local politics in Cook County, anything but the man who perpetrated the crime. Last week, Jussie Smollet was convicted by a jury of his peers… Continue reading Jussie Smollett: Reactions reveal a warped vision of social justice writ large

“I heard screaming and bullwhips cracking,” the crisis at the border goes full Neil Young and Biden blames the agents trying to keep us safe

When was the last time you saw a law enforcement agent armed with a whip straight out of Indiana Jones?  Close to 15,000 Haitians massed on the border prompts the most vile smear yet against the Border Patrol and even the Biden Administration is all in, prompting investigations into lies and slander while the open… Continue reading “I heard screaming and bullwhips cracking,” the crisis at the border goes full Neil Young and Biden blames the agents trying to keep us safe

The root cause canard on the border and elsewhere

Vice President Kamala Harris releases a long awaited strategy to address the “root causes” of the surge on the border, but a closer look at the document and the complete lack of details reveals they don’t plan to do anything at all that hasn’t been tried for 50 years.  Alas, it’s the same situation with… Continue reading The root cause canard on the border and elsewhere

President Joe Biden: Anyone who compares voter identification to the Civil War might be a demagogue unfit for office

Somehow, the President managed to insult the memory of every American that died in the Civil War and Civil Rights movement, paint his political opposition as the equivalent of Confederates and the Ku Klux Klan, and use one of the most grossly ridiculous analogies in the history of modern politics, all in service of a… Continue reading President Joe Biden: Anyone who compares voter identification to the Civil War might be a demagogue unfit for office

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

Senator Tim Scott prompts the question that many liberals refuse to fully answer for obvious reasons

Whether or not America is a racist country shouldn’t be a difficult question, especially when we live in an age where progressives continually repeat the mantra of “systemic racism” and “white supremacy” for everything from police violence to coronavirus. Well, which is it? Is America a racist country?  It’s a pretty simple question, but don’t… Continue reading Senator Tim Scott prompts the question that many liberals refuse to fully answer for obvious reasons

Cashing in on Anti-Racism

The billions we’re spending on ineffective diversity and anti-racism training is just the marketing and public relations campaign before the real dollars start flowing for woke union workers and guaranteed government goods in the name of equity.  Is declaring racism a public health crisis the road to socialism the left has been looking for? Anti-racism… Continue reading Cashing in on Anti-Racism

A few thoughts on the violence at the Capitol, otherwise known as everyone always thinks they’re right

If violence is never justified, it’s never justified.  If fomenting violence is wrong, then it’s wrong.  If context matters, then it matters.  If elections matter, then the way we conduct them matters.  If we hope for a peaceful future, we must all acknowledge the rules of the game. I’ll be honest:  I find myself rather… Continue reading A few thoughts on the violence at the Capitol, otherwise known as everyone always thinks they’re right
