Biden is the worst Presidential communicator in recent memory

A recent interview with 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley serves as a masterclass in how not to communicate.  Many of the questions were overwhelmingly obvious, but still the President was unclear, unfocused, and rambling, insulting the American people by denying what is happening before their very eyes.  Even when he speaks with clarity and conviction, his… Continue reading Biden is the worst Presidential communicator in recent memory

FBI raid: False premises, first principles, and friends like these

A heavily redacted affidavit prompts more questions than answers, but much larger issues are at stake.  Can anyone supersede the President’s classification powers?  What if the information was declassified as Trump says and the entire investigation is based on a false premise?  Why has no one answered that question?  Who’s in charge of Presidential records,… Continue reading FBI raid: False premises, first principles, and friends like these

Enough: Indict Trump already or give it a rest

The alternative to a trial of the former President is a continuation of the endless stream of leaks from prosecutors and misguided interpretations of the law from the real card carrying experts in the media.  If you truly believe the former President is guilty of something, let him have his day in open court. Tell… Continue reading Enough: Indict Trump already or give it a rest

Joe Biden is President George Costanza, every instinct he has is wrong

President Biden and the Democrats are poised to pass the poorly named Inflation Reduction Act to much fanfare in the mainstream media, but once upon a time even President Barack Obama knew the last thing you wanted to do was increase taxes in the middle of a recession.  This is Biden’s fourth round of stimulus… Continue reading Joe Biden is President George Costanza, every instinct he has is wrong

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!

Supreme Court:  A bombshell leak overturns almost 50 years of abortion rights with a fall out that’s impossible to predict

The United States is poised to enter a brave new world after a first in history leak of a potential ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade and return the question of abortion to the states.  We’ve never experienced anything like it, and despite the punditry, no one really knows where we go from here.… Continue reading Supreme Court:  A bombshell leak overturns almost 50 years of abortion rights with a fall out that’s impossible to predict

Hunter Biden: The media and the experts new the laptop was real all along, but they chose to lie about it anyway

As the President’s son pays $1,000,000 in back taxes in a desperate attempt to avoid criminal prosecution, The New York Times tries to take credit for verifying the existence of his laptop after the media establishment and their partners in the intelligence community have been lying about it for almost two years.  This is election… Continue reading Hunter Biden: The media and the experts new the laptop was real all along, but they chose to lie about it anyway

Ukraine:  Our response to the Russian invasion is incoherent and confused, but the bravery of the Ukrainian people themselves could be the deciding factor

Europe hasn’t seen a war like this in over 80 years, but so far the response from the United States and the rest of the world has lacked any coherent strategy as we impose sanctions for the sake of sanctions and search for a “free lunch” approach that both maximizes and minimizes economic pain.  In… Continue reading Ukraine:  Our response to the Russian invasion is incoherent and confused, but the bravery of the Ukrainian people themselves could be the deciding factor

No, unaccountable government agencies aren’t “democracy in action”

Some progressives are openly claiming all power resides with federal agencies, and your power is limited to voicing your opinion.  They say they care deeply about democratic norms and assaults on democracy, while they assault every norm there is and redefine democracy at a whim, outright proposing technocratic authoritarianism and calling it democracy. Recent Supreme… Continue reading No, unaccountable government agencies aren’t “democracy in action”
