A Cold War with China?

Featured image Niall Ferguson writes about the emerging Cold War between the U.S. and China. Ferguson calls this Cold War both inevitable and desirable. It’s desirable because, among other things, “it has jolted the U.S. out of complacency and into an earnest effort not to be surpassed by China in artificial intelligence, quantum computing and other strategically crucial technologies.” Even Henry Kissinger, architect of the policy of U.S.-Chinese engagement, acknowledges the new »

The Radical Joe Biden

Featured image The conventional wisdom right now is that Joe Biden is semi-senile, and that his choice of a vice president is all-important as it is likely this person (almost certainly a black female) will become president at some early point in the next few years if Biden wins in November. This conventional wisdom may be narrowly accurate, but ultimately wrong. Why? First, there is an imperceptible difference between a senile Biden »

Dementia politics

Featured image In his NR column “Dementia politics” Victor Davis Hanson sounds like the boy declaring the emperor wears no clothes: Joe Biden is tragically suffering a mental eclipse and sliding away at a geometric rate. Understandably, his handlers have kept him out of sight. He stays off the campaign trail on the pretext of the virus and his age-related susceptibility to COVID-19 morbidity. I say “pretext” without apology. Quarantine should not »

Joe Biden’s plan to abolish the suburbs

Featured image Stanley Kurtz writes: President Trump had a great riff at his rally the other day in Phoenix. It was all about “abolish,” about how the Left wants to abolish the police, ICE, bail, even borders. Trump’s riff is effective because it is true. The Left has gone off the deep end, and they’re taking the Democrats with them. Well, there’s another “abolish” the president can add to his list, and »

Keisha Lance Bottoms emerges as possible Biden running mate

Featured image I very much doubt that Joe Biden’s selection of a running mate will affect the outcome of this year’s election. However, the selection is important because (1) Biden has a pretty good chance of winning the election, in my opinion and (2) considering his age and diminished capacity, there’s a fair chance that, if elected, Biden won’t serve four years. By deciding to select a woman, Biden has already restricted »

“Elect Joe Biden and the anarchy will be coming to a town near you”

Featured image In the post just below this one, I cited a poll by Rasmussen for the proposition that unless Joe Biden gets wholeheartedly behind the police — something I doubt he’s capable of doing at this point — President Trump holds a winning hand on a very important issue. To get a sense of how the Trump campaign can leverage that hand, I invite you to watch this video that Tom »

Strzok strikes again

Featured image Before the D.C. Circuit granted General Flynn’s petition for writ of mandamus in relevant part yesterday morning, prosecutors had produced newly discovered exculpatory evidence to Flynn as a result of the review conducted by United States Attorney Jeffrey Jensen. The newly discovered evidence is identified as notes taken by former Assistant FBI Director Peter Strzok. FOX News covers the production here and here. The cover letter states: “While the page »

Biden’s Mental Capacity: The Emerging Issue

Featured image Everyone who pays attention has known for a while that Joe Biden, never an intelligent man, is in a state of cognitive decline. This is why the Democrats have been happy to keep him out of sight in his basement for the last several months. Most voters are barely aware of Biden’s condition, if at all. But that inevitably will change. A pro-Trump PAC has taken on the issue of »

“What are we talking about?”

Featured image Barack Obama was the star attraction at Joe Biden’s virtual fundraiser yesterday. In financial terms, the event was highly successful. More than 175,000 people donated a total of $7.6 million, according to the Biden campaign. In the daily Wall Street Journal Washington bureau email this morning, Ken Thomas adds that a separate component of the event for high-dollar donors raised $3.4 million for an overall haul of $11 million for »

Klobuchar bows out to make room for “woman of color”

Featured image Amy Klobuchar says she called Joe Biden on Wednesday to tell him that “this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.” Woman of color. Does that include pale Elizabeth Warren who has a tiny drop (apparently less than that of the average American) of Indian blood? Biden has already decided to discriminate on the basis of gender in selecting his running mate. Now Klobuchar is »

Joe Biden: The American people are stupid

Featured image Stephen Silbiger was the chief legislative aide to Congressman Stephen J. Solarz of Brooklyn. He also was the lobbyist for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and was the Washington Representative for the American Jewish Congress. He currently is practicing law in Washington, D.C. In the article below, which he submitted to Power Line, Stephen recounts his interaction, as a lobbyist, with Joe Biden. The article »

A Last Desperate Gambit

Featured image The Democratic Party’s coordinated effort to stir up racial hatred and bully the rest of us into giving them back the White House under the guise of “anti-racism” can only be seen as the most recent stage of the Democrats’ attempt to nullify the 2016 election. James Kunstler comments pungently: [H]ow much of the response to the public killing of one George Floyd has been an engineered operation by the »

Biden: Even More Contemptible Than Usual

Featured image In a normal news cycle, this would be a significant story, and Joe Biden would be subject to universal condemnation. That is, if we lived in the world pre-2016. The headline: “Biden Warns Trump Will ‘Steal This Election,’ Predicts Military May Have To Remove Trump From White House.” Joe Biden, the Democrats’ presumptive 2020 presidential nominee, told “The Daily Show” Wednesday that he expects President Donald Trump to try to »

Joe Biden, the perfect stand-in for a meek college president

Featured image Stanley Kurtz has written a great piece about Joe Biden. I think most of us understand that a President Biden would be a wholly owned subsidiary of the woke left. But Stanley explains better than anyone I’ve read why that almost certainly would be the case and how we got to this sad point. He writes: The resignation of the editorial page editor of the New York Times for publishing »

Biden in decline

Featured image President Trump retweeted this April 2019 clip of Joe Biden on The View yesterday. I hadn’t seen it before and thought viewers might find it of interest. Crazy! https://t.co/8uSgJ6Yyx4 — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 6, 2020 I think the clip was edited to highlight Biden’s mental decline. Below is The View‘s video of Biden’s appearance including the segment above. Biden still appears to be operating at some substantial discount »

Slow Joe Does It Again

Featured image You may have already seen Joe Biden confusing D-Day with Pearl Harbor. He’s wrong about the item of Delaware history he cites, as well: Sure, everyone slips up once in a while when speaking. But two things about Biden: 1) he can hardly get through the most softball of interviews without bungling, and 2) even when he isn’t garbling his facts, he comes across as a goofball. Why? Because he »

Tara Reade is under investigation for giving false testimony as expert witness

Featured image Tara Reade, Joe Biden’s accuser, apparently testified for years as an expert witness in domestic violence cases. In doing so, Reade may have given false testimony about her credentials. She may have testified falsely that she has a bachelor’s degree from Antioch University in Seattle and that she never took the California bar exam (it seems she took that exam and failed it). She may also have exaggerated her duties »
