General Mark Milley: Perhaps the world’s first act of treason committed purely to virtue signal to fellow elites

The idea that he needed to subvert the chain of command and spill secrets to foreign leaders to prevent a rogue nuclear attack is absurd on its face.  The system simply doesn’t work that way.  General Milley knows it and so does everyone else, making his extraordinary insubordination and potential treason a work of pure… Continue reading General Mark Milley: Perhaps the world’s first act of treason committed purely to virtue signal to fellow elites

The Infrastructure Scam: Clueless Republicans and increasingly radical Democrats make for a toxic mix

Apparently, the bipartisan effort is hostage to a secondary, entirely partisan effort, and changes to the partisan effort, even by the party pushing that same partisan effort, undermine the bipartisan one.

It was finally infrastructure week in Washington, DC when 19 clueless… Continue reading The Infrastructure Scam: Clueless Republicans and increasingly radical Democrats make for a toxic mix

The CDC finally admits vaccinated people don’t need masks, but where’s the science and why are some people freaking out?

The CDC stunned the political class last week by telling vaccinated people to ditch their masks.  I say better late than never, but many politicians and pundits are less than pleased, even as CNN describes it as a “huge political success” for Biden. Last week, the CDC made the long overdue announcement that vaccinated people… Continue reading The CDC finally admits vaccinated people don’t need masks, but where’s the science and why are some people freaking out?

The Big Lie: The battle over the 2020 election rages on

Liz Cheney takes on Trump again, but places herself at odds with the Republican caucus and Republican voters.  This time her future is far more uncertain.  Why can’t we just acknowledge that the 2020 election was conducted like no other in American history and move on from there?  Doesn’t democracy and the Constitution require as… Continue reading The Big Lie: The battle over the 2020 election rages on

The wildest and weirdest things this week in the world of the woke

Nancy Pelosi thanks George Floyd, a leading professor wants to convict America, Netflix doubles down on hateful content, LeBron James wants to hold a hero cop accountable, news organizations lie about the hero cop, top high schools lie to parents in the name of social justice, and a Congresswoman claims climate change is caused by a… Continue reading The wildest and weirdest things this week in the world of the woke

Is Maxine Waters an insurrectionist?

Chauvin is found guilty on all charges, but Democrats demanding justice keep amping up the violent rhetoric.  Fight?  More confrontational?  Demanding a verdict in an independent court case?  Defying local government orders?  Wasn’t this the kind of thing we called inciting an insurrection just a few short months ago? For obvious reasons, tensions surrounding the… Continue reading Is Maxine Waters an insurrectionist?

Capitol Attack: Who’s investigating the investigators?

No independent investigation has been launched 6 weeks after the attack despite promises from Nancy Pelosi and others.  In the meantime, many of the most shocking things we’ve been told, from police officers beaten to death to capture and kill teams stalking the halls, have proven false.  Will we ever get the full story?

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.

After the attack on the Capitol, what about “whataboutism”? Is “moral relativism” on the rise in conservative circles?

A new line of argument claims it’s moral relativism to question the credibility of your political opponents in their pursuit of power.  The argument misses the point:  We are unequivocally against violence, but political surrender isn’t morally acceptable either.  In other words, it takes two to de-escalate. In the wake of the violent, some call… Continue reading After the attack on the Capitol, what about “whataboutism”? Is “moral relativism” on the rise in conservative circles?

Impeachment and censorship mania strikes again, because nothing says “unity” like persecuting your political opponents

Incoming President and future leader of the free world, Joe Biden, claims he’s powerless to stop a mad stampede that will surely tear the country even further apart, I thought it was time for healing? Donald Trump has 11 days left in office.  This past Thursday he posted a video message officially conceding the election… Continue reading Impeachment and censorship mania strikes again, because nothing says “unity” like persecuting your political opponents
