Parallel Worlds

Featured image What is strange about our current political climate is not, in my opinion, polarization per se. It is not surprising that people with different interests and philosophies have different policy preferences and priorities. What is remarkable is that increasingly, liberals and conservatives don’t even seem to be living on the same planet. Their political concerns and agendas are largely ships that pass in the night. Thus, check out the results »

A Fiery Denunciation of the Democrats

Featured image I feel like I often denounce the Democrats in pretty fiery terms, but David Horowitz’s standard is hard to match. If you think the January 6 mini-riot, which the Democrats are now using to justify their many abuses of power, is, if not fake news, certainly grossly exaggerated news, you are right. And David spells it out in his patented fashion. This essay is on Front Page, and I am »

Washington: State, University, Statue

Featured image From the University of Washington, located in the State of Washington, comes news of leftist students wanting to tear down a statue of George Washington: The University of Washington’s Black Student Union has garnered nearly 8,000 signatures on a petition that demands the school remove a statue of George Washington, the school’s – and the state’s – namesake. Why? The usual: Statues in place at the University of Washington are »

Democrats Move to Silence Non-Liberal Speech

Featured image On paper, the Democrats have a tenuous hold on power in Washington. Their president is a cipher with severely diminished mental capacities, the Senate is a 50-50 tie, and they hold the narrowest House majority in decades. Nevertheless, the Democrats see what could be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and are pressing forward with their most radical agenda since they seceded in 1861. Among other things, the Democrats are »

Blame it on Gay Ray

Featured image We have somehow avoided the distasteful saga of the Lincoln Project con. The whole thing has come crashing down in recent days with exposés by the New York Times, the Associated Press and others. Glenn Greenwald has a good summary here. Putting its name and purported Republican bona fides to one side, the fundamentally dishonest nature of the Lincoln Project comes in two parts. The first is its obvious dedication »

Insurrection In Washington

Featured image The fascist organization Antifa does not exist, according to Democratic Party orthodoxy, so our news media avert their collective eyes from its depredations. Ignoring Antifa isn’t so easy if you live in cities that are under siege, like Portland, Seattle, and, in this case, Bellingham, Washington, which is north of Seattle and south of Vancouver. This police body cam video was filmed on January 28, released some days later and »

Who’s Crazy?

Featured image Democrats are busily trying to portray Republicans as crazy extremists and conspiracy theorists. Marjorie Greene is the latest target of this campaign, and of course the Dems continue to milk the January 6 D.C. mini-riot for all it is worth, and more. (Meanwhile, they have no interest in what would seem to be the real story, the inexplicable breakdown of security at the Capitol. And, contrary to the Democrats’ usual »

It’s not easy being Greene

Featured image The House — i.e., House Democrats joined by 11 Republicans, on a near party-line vote — removed Republican outlier Marjorie Taylor Greene from the committees to which she had been assigned. The AP story on the vote is here. Condemning the remarks that have brought Greene into disrepute, Senator Tom Cotton commented further on yesterday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow: “Make no mistake, plenty of »

Demography and Destiny

Featured image Charles Blow is a New York Times columnist whose output is usually around the bend, even by the low standards of that publication. But his most recent column is surprisingly cogent. It begins with the observation that black political power appears to be ascendant: It is easy to believe that Black power and influence are growing in America, and that the logical conclusion is that a set of policies favoring »

Tear down this Walz

Featured image Minnesota Governor Tim Walz appeared for a 10-minute interview with CBS Minnesota’s Esme Murphy over the weekend. Here if you can withstand it and if you can keep up one can observe Walz’s blizzard of verbiage and question-begging along with the media support that enables it. If you are not subject to the Walz regime of one-man rule, you may be able to watch this video with the kind of »

A Tsunami of Hate

Featured image Our friend David Horowitz makes the case that our present political crisis is not the result of polarized views on policy, but rather is caused by the Left’s outpouring of vicious hate and determination to crush all opposition. Everybody agrees that our country is in crisis – and agrees that it is the worst crisis since the Civil War. But at the same time, we tell ourselves a comforting tale »

The karma cometh

Featured image In an American Thinker post Tom Lifson poses the question “Is karma coming calling for Killer Cuomo?” Tom notes: Disgraceful as was Cuomo’s sending thousands to death, his lies and excuses blaming everyone but himself for the carnage are even more repulsive, at least on a rhetorical level. In an epic Twitter thread, Tom Elliott chronicles the cowardly and mendacious antics of the son of a guv. Read the whole »

The quotable Cuomo

Featured image The New York Post reports Governor Andrew Cuomo’s memorable response to “the damning state attorney general’s report that revealed his administration downplayed the total number of nursing home residents killed by COVID-19” (video in tweet below). Cuomo explained, “A third of all deaths in this nation are from nursing homes,” Cuomo said. “New York state, we’re only about 28 percent — only — but we’re below the national average in »

Court Packing, Here We Come?

Featured image The Biden administration has appointed a “bipartisan” commission to study “reforms” to the Supreme Court. It isn’t hard to see where this is going: Biden campaign lawyer Bob Bauer and former deputy assistant attorney general within the Obama Justice Department Cristina Rodríguez will serve as co-chairs, according to Politico. The outlet said the commission’s exact mandate is still being determined. Here is a clue: Politico pointed out that Fredrickson, who »

Sinema is a hard “no” on ending the filibuster [UPDATED]

Featured image Many of Joe Biden’s plans, and those of the leftists for whom he fronts, cannot be implemented in the next two years as long as the Senate filibuster remains in place. That’s why so many Democrats want to put an end to the filibustering of legislation. With the Democrats holding 50 Senate seats plus the vice presidency, the possibility of ending the filibuster exists. But even one holdout Dem would »

Gaffe of the Year

Featured image OK, the year is young. But Chuck Schumer’s classic moment on the Senate floor today promises to be a contender. First, the entertainment: SCHUMER: "Senators will have to decide if Donald John Trump incited the erection." — Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) January 22, 2021 I will say that Trump has incited something of the sort in Democrats for the last four years. The more serious point here is that the »

Lost In the Fun House

Featured image That describes Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, who in a podcast yesterday speculated that Vladimir Putin was behind the intrusion in the Capitol two weeks ago: Pelosi appeared on a special episode of Clinton’s podcast, “You and Me Both,” on Monday to discuss the Capitol riot and the incoming Biden administration. During the roughly 30-minute conversation, Clinton and Pelosi floated a conspiracy theory that Putin was the mastermind behind the »
