Trump take three and why millions still support him

As the polarizing former President announces his third consecutive bid for the White House, it’s worth considering the difference between political theory and practice.  In theory, we shouldn’t be talking about Trump at all.  In practice, he continues to dominate the political stage like no other. Donald Trump is the political difference between theory and… Continue reading Trump take three and why millions still support him

No, the problem for Democrats isn’t that Americans can’t understand how awesome they are

Recent polls suggesting a 2010 style “shellacking” for Democrats are prompting a range of wild narratives to reframe the midterm elections.  Administration officials and the mainstream media insist that President Biden’s accomplishments are simply too many and too vast to communicate to voters, while Biden himself claims Republicans will crash an economy already in recession.… Continue reading No, the problem for Democrats isn’t that Americans can’t understand how awesome they are

Pennsylvania Senate Insanity: Some in the media claim it’s a good thing for everyone that the Democrat candidate suffered a major stroke

We can support Americans with disabilities and recognize that they enrich our lives, but that doesn’t mean any given American with a disability is ready for a demanding job in the Senate or that suffering a stroke gives a candidate an edge or benefits the entire world.  How hard is that? This spring, Pennsylvania Senate… Continue reading Pennsylvania Senate Insanity: Some in the media claim it’s a good thing for everyone that the Democrat candidate suffered a major stroke

Tulsi Gabbard is likely one of millions leaving the Democrat party

The former Congresswoman from Hawaii and 2020 Presidential Candidate officially leaves the Democrat Party.  At least some of her reasons are likely shared by millions of Americans, but the reaction from her former fellow Democrats makes it clear they currently view their political party as a religion and will admit no introspection.

Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

Some shows are better in reruns, so it was last week when Senator Joe Manchin stood alone against his own party once again, stopping the insanity of increasing taxes and regulations in a period of rampant inflation and slowing economic growth.  Both are the precise opposite of what economics demands, but Democrats are increasingly unmoored… Continue reading Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

Biden and Trump: A tale of two primaries

One wields influence in the party even as some want to prevent him from running for office ever again.  The other’s presence is defined primarily by his absence while some question his ability to run for office ever again.  Strange days in primary season indeed. Calculating the precise influence former President Donald Trump maintains in… Continue reading Biden and Trump: A tale of two primaries

Poor, Poor Pitiful Biden, Part 2: This time, he’s getting angry!

NBC News reports that the President is “furious” with how people perceive him as not being in charge, “bristling” at being stifled by his staff, and “rattled” that his poll numbers have sunk lower than Donald Trump.  All that’s missing is an actual plan that would help the American people. The President is unhappy, beleaguered,… Continue reading Poor, Poor Pitiful Biden, Part 2: This time, he’s getting angry!

Critical Race Theory: A Democrat candidate for governor says the quiet part out loud, parents should have no say in what their children learn, and other recent insanity

Progressives are having a really hard time getting their story straight.  Is CRT in schools simply a conservative lie or is it essential education and “honest history”?  It appears they are sure of only one thing:  Donald Trump is involved, they’ve figured out why conservatives are against it, and they claim they have the math… Continue reading Critical Race Theory: A Democrat candidate for governor says the quiet part out loud, parents should have no say in what their children learn, and other recent insanity

Critical Race Theory: You’re being lied to by teachers and the mainstream media, it’s coming to a classroom near you whether you like it or not

The largest teachers’ unions in America finally reveal the truth by voting to bring CRT and anti-racism into classrooms around the country and funding it with tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars, even as a recent survey of teachers claims none of this is happening.  I guess we’re not supposed to believe our lying eyes.… Continue reading Critical Race Theory: You’re being lied to by teachers and the mainstream media, it’s coming to a classroom near you whether you like it or not

Ohio shooting: This is why conservatives don’t trust liberals on racial issues

Immediately after Derek Chauvin is found guilty of murdering George Floyd, progressives try to turn a completely different incident into another racial firestorm, but the similarities are non-existent.  In this case, the police respond to a melee in progress to find a woman assaulting people with a knife. Believe it or not, there was a… Continue reading Ohio shooting: This is why conservatives don’t trust liberals on racial issues
