DeSantis supporters sure are getting desperate while Biden himself gets older and even more tired

President Biden officially entered the race with a broadside against his opposition which if the polls are any indication is likely to be former President Trump, setting up a rematch of the oldest in history.  Meanwhile, Governor DeSantis’ supporters are close to freaking out… A mere six months ago, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was the… Continue reading DeSantis supporters sure are getting desperate while Biden himself gets older and even more tired

Who’s afraid of a little actual voting in Congress?

The House of Representatives is in the process of making the sort of history one doesn’t really want to make as the selection of Speaker moves to at least the 12th ballot, suggesting that the Republican party is fractured, which should not be much of a surprise after the midterm elections. This week, the political… Continue reading Who’s afraid of a little actual voting in Congress?

Why did the FBI become a social media monitoring firm and election interference outfit?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is supposed to be the world’s premiere law enforcement organization, but at least 80 agents were devoted to monitoring the silly jokes of ordinary citizens on social media, pressuring companies into removing protected speech, and ultimately into suppressing one of the most important stories of the 2020 campaign. The Federal… Continue reading Why did the FBI become a social media monitoring firm and election interference outfit?

Twitter: Imagine if Elon Musk blocked The Washington Post and deplatformed President Joe Biden

The ongoing Twitter files is of little use to the mainstream media except to attack Elon Musk, Matt Taibbi, Bari Weiss, and Michael Shellenberger as conservative conspiracy theorists, but everyone knows the reaction would be quite different if Mr. Musk was the one doing the banning and deplatforming. Sometimes, the best way to truly understand… Continue reading Twitter: Imagine if Elon Musk blocked The Washington Post and deplatformed President Joe Biden

The Twitter Files: So-called journalists ignore the obvious threat to their own industry and the First Amendment

The recent anti-Musk rants studiously avoid the blatant censorship of The New York Post under false pretenses in the middle of an election, which should be the centerpiece of any reasoned concerns about free speech and the free exchange of ideas.  Instead, propagandists vent their outrage at the messenger. The New York Post is the… Continue reading The Twitter Files: So-called journalists ignore the obvious threat to their own industry and the First Amendment

Ron DeSantis: Is the Florida governor the Republicans’ only hope?

The New York Post recently proclaimed him “DeFuture.”  The Florida governor has a lot to recommend himself for the Republican nomination.  A resounding re-election, a strong resume, a coronavirus response rooted in freedom, and a willingness to fight for conservative causes.  At least, that’s the theory.  The practice, as ever, is a lot more complicated… Continue reading Ron DeSantis: Is the Florida governor the Republicans’ only hope?

Trump and DeSantis: Rumors of one’s political demise are greatly exaggerated, as are calls for the other’s coronation

Last week’s midterm debacle has renewed calls in certain quarters to dump former President Donald Trump, blaming him entirely for the Republican’s poor performance, and to elevate Governor Ron DeSantis after his domination in Florida.  We should be wary of both.  Many promoting this have vehemently opposed the former President since his candidacy while the… Continue reading Trump and DeSantis: Rumors of one’s political demise are greatly exaggerated, as are calls for the other’s coronation

Defund the Department of Justice?

Another round of illegal leaks concerning yet another investigation into former President Donald Trump.  Another round of speculation in the media that the walls are closing in, and all the while Attorney General Merrick Garland and his boss, President Joe Biden, continue hiding behind the idea that they can’t comment on ongoing investigations, only leak… Continue reading Defund the Department of Justice?

Russia: Sanctions aren’t doing jack shit

Rather than crippling the Russian economy as all the real card carrying experts promised, the ruble is stronger than it’s been in seven years and Russian oil exports are generating more revenue than ever.  The outcome is the opposite of what was intended as the war in Ukraine rages on with no end in sight. … Continue reading Russia: Sanctions aren’t doing jack shit

It’s long past time to discuss President Biden’s obvious mental decline

The media doesn’t seem to care, indeed is doing its best to hide it, but we cannot have a President doddering around a stage, shaking hands with the empty air without serious repercussions.  Talk of the 25th Amendment was all the rage when President Trump was in office.  We need some of that now, fast,… Continue reading It’s long past time to discuss President Biden’s obvious mental decline
