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

Uvalde: Why is anyone surprised?

There are brave police officers who would willingly risk their lives, but the leadership at a local, state, and federal level has long moved past such an old fashioned, pedestrian mission.  Why should local officials be any different than the big boys and girls in Washington, DC?  There is no doubt that the Uvalde Police… Continue reading Uvalde: Why is anyone surprised?

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!

Ukraine: Get ready for another unending war, now they tell us

Before the invasion, our top military commanders believed Russia would conquer Ukraine in 72 hours, but last week they claimed the war could go on for an indefinite period, up to a decade, and nothing could have prevented it except for US boots on the ground.  Rarely has history been rewritten to cover abject failure… Continue reading Ukraine: Get ready for another unending war, now they tell us

Progressives can’t even legalize marijuana

Democratic governance is so pathetically awful they can’t even pass a slam dunk bill that will simultaneously weaken drug cartels, reduce confrontations with police, and drive new revenue, but why should we be surprised as President Biden presides over a worst of times scenario like we’ve never seen in modern history? It’s taken for granted… Continue reading Progressives can’t even legalize marijuana

Biden and the free word on the brink

The President’s trip to Europe was marred by unforced errors, a lack of any coherent strategy, no new and creative plans, and a general sense that trying hard is good enough.  Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg Biden certainly is not.  Instead, it seems he’s angling for the first Presidential Participation Trophy. Last week, President Biden traveled… Continue reading Biden and the free word on the brink

Ukraine and Biden: Let’s not deceive ourselves for the reality is bleak

The mainstream media is reporting that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has “stalled” or even become a “stalemate,” even as the US government believes they are mounting a siege around key Ukrainian cities.  A siege, however, is not a stalemate.  It’s a slow, bloody stranglehold that will get much worse. Last weekend, the man who… Continue reading Ukraine and Biden: Let’s not deceive ourselves for the reality is bleak

Ukraine: Just give them nuclear weapons and all our problems will be solved

If we’re willing to provide Ukraine with fighter jets and advanced weapons systems, why not just go all the way and make them a nuclear power?  Some members of Congress and the media seem confused about the meaning of the word “escalatory,” perhaps a bit of hyperbole might help them sort it out. As the… Continue reading Ukraine: Just give them nuclear weapons and all our problems will be solved

Ukraine: Can we dissolve the Russian military and make it disappear entirely?

The slow moving, chaotic Russian assault, plagued by poor equipment and poorly trained soldiers, offers opportunities for Ukraine itself, the United States, and our allies around the world if we are willing to get far more creative and dynamic in our strategy and tactics. Now is the time to come up with something other than… Continue reading Ukraine: Can we dissolve the Russian military and make it disappear entirely?

The backwards insanity of our energy policy

For years, progressives have advocated increasing the cost of gasoline and other fossil fuels via a “carbon pricing” scheme, but now that prices have spiked, President Biden is blaming Russia, begging communist dictatorships to produce more dirty fuels, and lying about the insanity of his own energy policy.   Earlier this week, President Biden blamed the… Continue reading The backwards insanity of our energy policy
