Why Is the Government Hiding January 6 Video Footage?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
There’s only one reason why the Justice Dept. wants to keep the footage under seal: it contradicts most if not all of the claims advanced over the past four months. Republicans and the media should demand the release of all the footage. Ditto for families of the defendants. The American public still doesn’t know exactly what happened on January 6—and it’s clear the government will use any means necessary to keep it that way.

Biden’s Warped Philosophy of Medicine
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Whether “the science” shows low risks, as in the case of schools, or tragically high risks, as for puberty blockers, Joe Biden has no intention of following it. He takes his cue from the imperatives of progressivism. Out of it has come an utterly incoherent Democratic Party, which at one moment is calling for open borders and drug legalization and then in the next is hysterically demanding this or that new “health” regulation.

Signs of the Times
Cal Thomas, The Epoch Times
President Biden is again engaging in wishful thinking and the belief that American morality can be transposed on others who do not share it. Such a process has proven folly wherever it has been tried. One might think lessons would have been learned by now. In scripture there are at least 85 references to signs. They have always been relevant, especially in light of what is happening in the Middle East and other current events.

Idea: In 2022, Let’s Nominate Candidates Who Aren’t Awful
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Republican candidates appear, and we need to vet the hell out of them to ensure they are conservawoke. Are they weakhearts, sissies, or some other part of the Bulwark demographic? Are they corporate shills? Are they all in on your kids fighting a war in Whocarsistan? Do they treat the media like the garbage it is? Do they stand with you, or with people who hate you? Choose wisely. And choose someone who isn’t awful in 2022.

Biden Administration Is Mocking Ancient Wisdom
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Human nature stays the same across time and space. That is why there used to be predictable political, economic and social behavior that all countries understood. For three months, the Biden administration has emphasized racial differences rather than our melting-pot commonalities, perhaps causing America to unwind. When an arrogant present dismisses the wisdom of the past, then an all too predictable future becomes terrifying.

Tiny tyrant Cuomo uses COVID-19 to abuse and segregate
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
Cuomo has been exposed as not using science to direct the actions his administration takes. If he did, we would not have had the mass death COVID-19 catastrophe at nursing homes. All of the scandals he is facing are based on abusing people and abusing the power of his office. For a man who hasn’t considered the death toll of his actions during COVID-19, why should we expect him to respect the civil rights of other human beings?

This Is Why Fauci Needed to Go
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Trump, through that staffer or personally, needed to call to Francis Collins telling him Fauci’s time was up and he needed to resign, and Collins needed to make that happen quietly. And if that didn’t happen, then both Fauci and Collins would be very noisily packed off to retirement. There ought to be consequences. It’s too bad it didn’t happen a year ago; we’d be amid a booming economy in Trump’s second term if it had.

How the Left Plans To Put Boots on the Ground to Subdue Middle America
Selwyn Duke, American Thinker
If the Left can co-opt the military and police, it will have seized our country’s last two remaining (relatively) “conservative” institutions. It will also have what’s necessary to quash that impediment to total hegemony: America’s framework and tradition of state and local control. Just like they now love the federal intelligence agencies, they'd love the military and police — and use them with zeal — upon seizing them.

H.R. 1 Would Eliminate Key Signature Verification Safeguard
Ken Cuccinelli, Real Clear Politics
Section 1621 of H.R. 1 dictates how states must deal with signature verification. Its passage would open up our elections to partisan interference and fraud. By intentionally barring even the most basic verification of mail-in ballots, H.R. 1 would worsen Americans’ distrust of our election system. Section 1621 is one important reason – but far from the only one – why H.R. 1 is wrong for America and should be defeated.

American Communism Has Found Its Brezhnev in Biden
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
A cold war has already started—capitalism versus communism all over again, although the contemporary form of communism might be more exactly called fascist oligarchy. This is Marxism with the working class left out—go figure. In the midst of all this, the figurehead-like Joe Biden is already making his name on the short list of worst presidents of all time and is headed for the top. Soon he’ll be number one with a bullet.

Trump hopes MAGA rallies make him a 2022 kingmaker
Joseph Curl, Washington Times
For the upcoming midterms, former president Donald Trump sees himself as a kingmaker. He has already endorsed more than a dozen 2022 endorsements, endorsing incumbent Republican Sens. Ron Johnson, John Kennedy and Tim Scott, as well as some GOP challengers. Those include Rep. Jody Hice, who’s running to unseat Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who wrangled with Mr. Trump after the 2020 presidential election.

Alternatives to Child Abuse by COVID Authoritarians
Ron Paul, CNS News
Parents interested in providing their children with a quality education that emphasizes the ideas of liberty should consider Ron Paul's homeschooling curriculum. Interactive forums allow students to learn from each other outside of a formal setting. The curriculum's emphasis on self-directed learning and student interaction makes it ideal for parents who need to work from home but still want to homeschool their children.

 

Has the Backlash Arrived for Police-Bashing?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Liberal mayors and urban politicians who enlisted in the Black Lives Matter "defund the police" movement after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last May, appear to have caught a wave that is now receding. In the streets of America's cities, violent crimes are spiking to heights unseen since the 1990s. And, instead of "Defund the Police!" the insistent cry is, "Where are the cops?" Cops aren't doing the killings.

The Infernal Revenue Service
Cal Thomas, The Epoch Times
The Joe Biden administration wants more revenue from us. The problem has never been revenue, but spending. Not only do we need a simplified tax system, we also should invite an outside auditor to recommend the elimination of unnecessary, useless, outdated, and unconstitutional programs, agencies, and spending. Members of Congress who write these tax laws should be forced to fill out the forms without help from an adviser.

Princess Cheney peddles another 'BIG LIE'
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
The entire Cheney dynasty is built on THE BIG LIE. Just ask Colin Powell, who got sent out by the Bushes and the Cheneys to peddle THE BIG LIE that got us into A BIG WAR that we are still fighting and paying for. Remember all the water you carried for them, defending them at every turn because you trusted them? And, anyway, once we are in a war, you are obligated to support the mission and our boys over there fighting?

What Liz Cheney Really Wants
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
Cheney's refusal to rule out a presidential run last week hints at what she wants. She wants to play spoiler to prevent anyone who embraces a Trumpian foreign policy of restraint from again winning the presidency. Given her family name, conservative credentials (she boasts a solid voting record in the House), and this orchestrated martyrdom, she figures to pose a more challenging roadblock to overcome than Evan McMullin did.

Kneecapping the Oil Industry Won’t Help the Economy or the Environment
Stephen Moore, National Review
Yes, we need to protect the earth. But is eliminating thousands of jobs and billions of dollars of domestic production for a symbolic victory that only empowers foreign polluters really a good direction? We certainly don’t want to shut off our homegrown production, nor should we move to a nationalized energy industry that would provide all the reliability in our energy system that we get from the Postal Service and Amtrak.

Joe Biden's imperiled economy
Editors, Washington Examiner
We have an explosion of cash into circulation, nonexistent interest rates disincentivizing spending, and closures of schools and businesses shrinking the labor force. On top of that, we have Biden’s signature policy failure: the federal government’s expanded unemployment benefits incentivizing people from returning to work. Twelve years ago, Obama could rightly claim he inherited a mess. Biden needs to admit he's made one.

Tuning Out Wokeism
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The woke Left seeks a top-down erasure of America, engineered by the likes of LeBron James from his $40 million estate talking revolution to Oprah at her $90 million castle, as Mark Zuckerberg throws in $500 million here, and his colleagues $400 million there, and as the top executives of Coke, Target, and Delta believe their $17 million salaries make them experts on the crimes of non-diversity, exclusion, and inequity.

Will the Left Respect Liz Cheney in the Morning?
David Catron, The American Spectator
It’s hard to believe Liz Cheney’s dumb enough to take the accolades she has been receiving from the left and the media seriously. As long as they can use her against the GOP, they will continue to praise her as a profile in courage. While she is willing to repeat conspiracy theories about Donald Trump, they will say she is speaking truth to power. But when she is no longer useful to them, they will return to reviling her.

The Big Lie Is That Cheney Is Still A Republican
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The rap is that this is a civil war within the GOP, but it’s really Cheney and Kinzinger against all the rest of us. What they lack in numbers they make up in free media eagerly provided to try to convince the saps that these losers have support from anyone besides each other. Enough. Cheney needs to go. She needed to go months ago. And the fact the Democrats and their media insist we keep her is all the proof you need.

How ‘Woke’ May Be Leading Us to Civil War
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
An iron-fisted, ideologically extreme minority has our country under its thumb—play along or face excommunication. This is stronger than anything in our history and almost identical to what we see and have seen in totalitarian countries. What the extremist ideology of “woke” actually provokes is talk of—and not just talk—secession and even civil war. Few of us have heard anything like that in our lifetimes. But it’s real.

Thank Tim Scott for answering the question 'Is America racist?'
Michael McKenna, Washington Times
Scott's willingness to take a stand cleared away some of the underbrush in American civic life and enabled us to get on with addressing the material challenges facing many of our communities. If you want to understand what institutional racism really looks like, look at who rules the majority-minority cities and counties and what that rule has meant for those citizens. Thank Scott for bringing honesty to this conversation.

Biden’s new left of racial radicals
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
With traditional liberals fast disappearing, the ascendant left no longer champions equal rights. Instead, it champions racial prejudice and even resegregation. The open, unabated hatred for Tim Scott and others who don’t subscribe to this new orthodoxy is especially alarming. While politics has always been a tough business, radicalism grew more powerful under Obama, where a coercive, moralistic tone clouded every discussion.

Where Did All Those 'Capitalist Pigs' Go?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Has China found the formula for global ascendancy that eluded the Soviet Union of Stalin, Khrushchev and Brezhnev? Use state capitalism and market incentives to build the economic wealth that can be translated into the growth to enable China to ascend to a level of power where it is indisputably the first nation on earth? Is Communist doctrine being updated to accommodate the most successful Communist country of them all?

Democrats Can’t Quash the ‘Big Lie’
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Merrick Garland’s Civil Rights division is getting involved in the ongoing audit of votes in Maricopa County, Arizona. The head of the division expressed concern about the “security of ballots and potential voter intimidation” related to the review. The “Big Lie,” of course, isn’t that the 2020 election was stolen; the “Big Lie” is that it was fair and lawful. Republicans aren’t buying the left's weaponizing of the issue.

Mask Rebellion at the Kentucky Derby
Reed Spaulding IV, MD, The American Spectator
Fauci is non-committal about when people should feel comfortable enough to live normally again. Well, stop the presses, doc, and look no further! If the question is when will people feel ready, I have the answer: now. Right now. Actually, how about yesterday? Look at the Kentucky Derby, where citizens blatantly disobeyed a once-beloved governor’s mandates and booed him on a national stage because those edicts still persist.

Why Did Biden Census Bureau Add 2.5 Million More Residents to Blue-State Population Count?
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
Something fishy's going on. Most all of the revisions to the original estimates have moved in one direction: Population gains were added to blue states, and population losses were subtracted from red states. Was the Census Bureau count rigged? Was it manipulated by the Biden team to hand more seats to the Democrats and to get more money—federal spending is often allocated based on population—for the blue states? Alarm bells?

There Are Simple Reasons Liz Cheney Has To Go
Derek Hunter, Townhall
Cheney's failure is not because she doesn’t like Donald Trump, that is the least important part of this whole drama, but because she can’t do the job. Her job is to hold the caucus together and advance the Republican agenda. She can’t do it, and it’s all her fault. Her raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome aside, she has fired down her own trench too many times. Leaders, effective leaders, don’t attack their own troops.

To come back from COVID, NYC needs to tackle crime
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
It’s time the political puppets and the bleeding-heart activists pulling their strings come to their senses and worry more about crime victims than the perpetrators. At some point, all the pandemic restrictions will be lifted and, if the national economy is strong, the city could get back to boom times. But unless New York and its political leadership gets serious about combatting crime, the city will never be what it was.

Ending the tyranny of cancel culture and building an agenda that will win back America
Mike Pence, Washington Times
In 2020, the American people did not vote for the agenda of the radical left. And the time has come for freedom-loving Americans to stand up to the far-left agenda of the Biden-Harris administration and say, “Enough is enough!” It’s time to unite behind a positive agenda built on our highest ideals and win back America. And we have the winning agenda. Built on American values and on our confidence in the American people.

The Great Brainwashing
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Liberals like Joe Biden and his administration fear the spread of private education not because it diverts “public funds,” as Biden once said, but because it impedes their indoctrination of the nation’s population. To advance their fundamentally transformed America, they must confine as many students as possible to a fundamentally transformed education, one in which students learn to hate, not revere, their forefathers.

Clean House in 2025
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
When the next conservative president is sworn in, he should give a short speech and start firing people. Lots of people. The next president needs to come into the Oval Office ready to clear-cut the bureaucracy. Level it. there’s a whole generation of experienced conservatives out there to call upon to staff his administration. And they will to be ready to separate the wheat form the chaff when they take up their places.

Are Americans Becoming Sovietized?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Ten symptoms of Sovietism. The Soviets boasted they were advocates for equity, champions of the underclass, enemies of privilege — and therefore could terminate anyone or anything they pleased. Our wokists are similarly defending their thought-control efforts, forced re-education sessions, scripted confessionals, mandatory apologies and cancel culture on the pretense that we need long-overdue “fundamental transformation.”

Biden’s American Unions Plan
Betsy McCaughey, The Epoch Times
Congressional Republicans are bashing the $2.3 trillion price tag on Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan and the job-killing corporate tax hike to pay for it. Those are legitimate grievances. But the GOP should also be protesting the president’s assault on labor rights. Biden boasts he’s a “union president.” Someone has to look out for the 90 percent of workers who don’t belong to unions. Republicans should make it their job.

Joe Biden Dodged Half A Million In Taxes, And He Wants You To Pay Your ‘Fair Share’
Christopher Jacobs, The Federalist
Given his own questionable tax practices, President Joe Biden’s speech last week sounded a bit rich—not in terms of wealth, but his own hypocrisy. The current president engaged in a series of transactions Democrats often like to ascribe to his immediate predecessor, deliberately dodging more than $500,000 in payroll taxes that fund a law he claims to support, all to finance an extravagant lifestyle worthy of a plutocrat.

 

Biden Is Turning America Into the Land of the Freebie
Doug Bandow, The American Spectator
Free should become the new principle of government. Paying for everything remains a slight challenge, though. The who is obvious, starting with rich, oppressive, white, cisgender men and even women — there just aren’t enough guys, alas. Also high-income, conservative people of color, who obviously are not authentic and do not deserve to be treated as real people of color. And anyone else departing from progressive orthodoxy.

FBI’s Failed Ron Johnson Set-Up A Case Study In How Agencies Use Corrupt Reporters To Peddle Lies, Hurt Their American Enemies
Christopher Bedford, The Federalist
Corporate media are no simple patsies for American intel, nor are they clever enough to be called co-conspirators. A number of the country’s most prominent publications have assumed the groveling role of palace guards for the state and its friends in Congress. And what difference does it make to them if they get the wrong guys for what they (and their readers) call the right reasons? Know it's all a game and treat it as such.

As ‘Things Fall Apart,’ People Seem to ‘Lack All Conviction’
Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times
The psychological deployment of projection is one big lesson of our political culture today. Another big lesson is how rapidly the institutions guaranteeing our freedoms can be emptied out and perverted. The American population has been cowed into COVID submission and then been told that anyone who supports Trump is, at least in embryo, a “domestic terrorist.” That meme is recycled endlessly through the state propaganda network.

Foul leftist politics dressed up as virtuous wokism
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
If there’s anyone on earth who understands the impact of biological males competing against girls and women in sports it would be Caitlyn Jenner, who is uniquely experienced as the former Bruce Jenner, one of the world’s most preeminent competitive athletes. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott fully understands the Black American experience, what needs to change, but also the power and opportunity only America offers to all of us.

Exit Is Nigh For Liz Cheney
Curt Mills, The American Conservative
McCarthy was heard on a hot mic confiding in Fox’s Steve Doocy: “I think she’s got real problems,… I’ve had it with … I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence.” McCarthy predicted: “Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.” McCarthy’s position was already precarious as he attracted the condemnation of marquee Republican and Fox host Tucker Carlson, on a separate matter.

Liz Cheney's game
Byron York, Washington Examiner
It's no wonder that Liz Cheney's tone and manner grates on so many Republicans. She has been ham-fisted before -- remember when, as a neophyte, she tried to use the strength of her last name to push veteran Wyoming Republican Senator Mike Enzi out a race for re-election? Perhaps she's just being ham-fisted again. Or perhaps she's got something else going on. That's why it's important for Republicans to know what Cheney's game is.

 

Beware of Media Myth-Makers
Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator
Skepticism toward the news media has increased because intelligent Americans recognize how much of what is reported as “news” is actually political propaganda. But not enough people have devoted the time necessary to understand the vast arsenal of deceptive tactics employed by the media liars who claim to be practitioners of journalism. Let’s hope Americans recognize the media’s propaganda tactics before they get us all killed.

Biden vs. Biden on 'Is America a Racist Country?'
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
The clashing commentaries of Biden and Harris reflect an ideological divide within their own coalition over a most basic issue: Is America a good country? Can you lead a country about whose history you profess shame? And how long will Americans follow elected leaders who appear to agree with those who hate what America was and, yes, what America is? With Trump gone, Biden must now do the uniting of his disparate party himself.

The Democratic Party’s Stasi
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Hunter Biden’s criminality is rewarded with book deals and university speaking gigs; Antifa rioters in Portland are let off the hook and violent demonstrators who ransacked Washington, D.C. during Trump’s 2017 inauguration are getting hefty cash settlements and clean records. The Biden Justice Department is “the shield and the sword” for the Democrats, protecting their own corrupt ranks while terrorizing any and all detractors.

Focusing on equality of opportunity rather than equality of outcome for Black Americans
Dr. Ben Carson, Washington Times
The wise Frederick Douglass famously noted that “What I ask for the Negro is not benevolence, not pity, not sympathy, but simply justice.” The wisdom of those words then still holds true today: The best way to help Black Americans is to treat them as Americans who happen to be Black. By focusing on economic growth, the success sequence and faith, we can help make all Americans, including Black Americans, prosperous and happy.

Use Twitter’s New Weakness to Start Upending Big Tech
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Now is the time—there may never be a better—for all good men and women to leave Twitter—no excuses. In this case it is remarkably easy to harmonize your beliefs with your actions. As Nancy Reagan said in another context, “Just say no.” In other words, deactivate your account. I promise you, difficult as it may seem, you will be relieved in the long run. I know I am. Getting rid of Twitter is a way to start back. It’s worth it.

There Is No Biden Moment
Rich Lowry, National Review
The spending isn’t responsive to any groundswell in the country. Biden's best case is conditions in America, rather than being dire, are so propitious that these levels of spending can be absorbed without anything going wrong. But presidents are often defined by genuine, unexpected crises. The worry is Biden will have spent a huge amount of cash and political capital before he even learns what real crisis he’ll have to confront.

 

The Bleak Biden Way
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
What will follow in the next few years? Biden will grimace and contort, as he calls for unity, to rally the virtuous against the legions of Russian colluders, racists, insurrectionists, and Jim Crow revivalists under every American bed. All these impediments to fundamental transformation, Biden must unfortunately, reluctantly, and with real remorse surveille, monitor, root out, raid, jail, confine, and smear. It is the Biden Way.

The Price Democracy Exacts for Ignorance
David Catron, The American Spectator
Today's education system and the media have both been compromised by the very despots they were meant to keep in check. They are dumbing down the voters to a level at which they will eventually be incapable of self-government. As Thomas Jefferson put it in a letter to Charles Yancey in 1816, “If a nation expects to be ignorant & free … it expects what never was & never will be.” That is the price democracy exacts for ignorance.

The war for the soul of America
Robert Knight, Washington Times
When we were kids, my parents warned me about staying clear of any man who came up to us and offered us “candy.” When Democrats speak, I have a vision of a black-masked donkey in a raincoat outside the schoolyard, his arms full of treats for us — if only we do what he says. We desperately need to rebuild the “soul of the country,” but that will take faith in God and God’s sound principles for living, not Joe Biden's class warfare.

This Has Just Been The Beginning
Peter Van Buren, The American Conservative
The kind of candidate likely to emerge from all this will promise to take charge, to roll unwanted change backwards, and will manipulate the newly validated laws which say discrimination by race is what people want. He will find an audience grown larger by ham-handed efforts to impose a partisan rough splash of social change against the majority will. He will be seen as the least bad answer to a system swung way too far from center.

None Dare Call It Socialism?
Tim Graham, CNS News
Our socialist media won't use the S-word. They use words like "bold" and "ambitious" and repeat phrases like "go big or go home" — as if you couldn't say a Soviet five-year plan was "go big or go home." They are the ones who have sold Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, both Clintons, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden as moderates. This has grown increasingly ridiculous, but they keep shifting the "center" to the extreme left.

Conservatives Need To Get It On
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
True, families and kids are not all sunshine. There are people who have no business breeding. There are kids who are monsters, and parents too. But only a fool would argue we should abandon something that is overwhelmingly good, something that has been the foundation of every great civilization, because sometimes it’s imperfect. Look at what our ruling caste proposes in its place – a freakshow of chaos, misery, and decline. Pass.

Biden Bets the Farm -- to 'Change the World'
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Events seem to be pointing to an up-or-down vote on Biden's plans in both houses, and, as of today, Democrats appear to be in the catbird seat. Deficits exceeding $1 trillion. A national debt larger than the national economy and growing inexorably. A Federal Reserve running the printing press night and day to produce the dollars to push the nation back to full employment. This is Biden's hour. The question is, how long does it last?

Like All Robbers, They Wore Masks
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
Hundreds of masked people conspired to rob your children and grandchildren last week in Washington. Like the Hamburglar, Robin Hood, and the Riddler, the thieves hid their faces behind masks. The already vaccinated wore masks for the reasons other violators of “thou shalt not steal” do: so their victims cannot pick them out of a lineup, to allow the anonymity to boost their courage, to psychologically separate themselves from the act.

Biden declares war on America -- literally
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
It’s all about “the government.” That's really where Biden is coming from. In his eyes, the federal government is “we the people” and you stupid suckers out there need to just shut up and pay taxes. He will spend for you. That’s how this guy comes up with a long, insufferable speech about government power and nothing about individual freedom. Never once did he utter the word “individual.” Mr. Biden used the word “freedom” just once.

Joe Biden, crisis monger
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Joe Biden uses "crisis" as a rhetorical device to try to convince Americans that the nation is a wreck and that they need to support his multi-trillion dollar spending plans to hold off further disaster. Biden cited the opioid "crisis," the climate "crisis," an "existential crisis" of American democracy, and the "crises of our time, from terrorism to nuclear proliferation, mass migration, cybersecurity, climate change, [and] pandemics."

GOP orator Tim Scott wins race
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
The South Carolina Republican’s answer to Democrat Joe Biden wasn’t just an effective political counter. It was, in all ways, a far superior speech. Had it been given by a president, it would have been a national sensation. The many contrasts were striking. Biden talked America down by building the government up, painting 330 million people as hopelessly lost unless Washington takes more and more control of the economy and everyday life.

Biden Versus Scott
Cal Thomas, The Epoch Times
Sen. Tim Scott is a natural speaker in contrast to Biden’s often forced and condescending rhetoric. Scott believes in putting people, not government first. While he dazzled many in his address to the virtual Republican National Convention last summer, his response to the president’s speech has likely vaulted him to the top tier of national leadership. The African American community should especially take notice and follow his lead.

 

Biden’s Racial Spoils System
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Joe Biden's and the Democrats' America is not one of justice and freedom for all but quotas for some and discrimination for many. It is an America where schoolchildren memorize not the words of the Gettysburg Address but the tenets of critical race theory, which holds that America was conceived in sin and dedicated to white supremacy. In peddling these poisons, Joe Biden shows himself to be a race-baiting demagogue, not a statesman.

Biden’s 100-Day Speech: Brainwashing Will Begin at Age Three
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Joe Biden kind of wants to be FDR-lite while feigning he seeks to bring us together. Then he talks absolute nonsense about Jan. 6, making it a greater threat to the U.S. than Pearl Harbor. That nonsense and he are more than a little addled. But all these economic stratagems can be reversed in a year or two, if they even get through Congress in the first place. Even an open border can be rebuilt. It’s his education plans that scare me.

Biden Is Not Crazy, But His Obsession With His Legacy Is Hurting the Country
Craig Shirley, CNS News
Knowing he's not running for reelection, it’s clear to me that Joe’s trying to make every day count, because come 2024 it’s all but over. The country will be focused on the presidential race and Biden’s appointed successor, so Biden has from now until then to sign as many bills into law as fast as congressional Democrats can hand them to him. A legacy delivered no matter the expense is a road to hell that’s paved with good intentions.

GOP's shallow attacks on Biden and Dems will only lead to more losing
Michael McKenna, Washington Times
It's a pervasive problem on the right. In the last 12 months, the Republican Party has taken a hard pass on writing a platform or assessing what went wrong in the 2020 presidential and congressional elections. That suggests a team that is having trouble finding and explaining policies around which to coalesce. Team Biden is winning in part because the national Republicans have no alternatives, or at least none they care to share.

American Universities Have Lost Their Prestige
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
As long as universities produced highly educated graduates at a reasonable cost and kept politics out of the lecture hall, most Americans didn’t care much about peculiarities such as tenure, legacy admissions, untaxed endowments, rebellious students and quirky faculty. Just as Hollywood grates when it no longer can make good movies, a once-hallowed but now self-righteous university seems hollow when it charges so much for so little.

Should We Just Let It Burn?
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The libs tried giving people money. It failed. It’s all fun and games until it affects the white libs calling the shots. The question is not whether we normal people should just let the cities burn. In fact, we have no say in it unless we mobilize and invade. That’s not happening. No, the question is whether the liberal establishment will tolerate this crap, and the answer is that it will until it gets scared. Then, all bets are off.

Cowardice and Critical Race Theory at the State House
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
What’s the point of having a Republican legislature if it won’t even defend the founding of America against “woke” Marxists? That’s a question Louisiana's Clay Schexnayder, and lots of other Republicans yet to engage in this existential fight, need to be made to answer. This is serious business, and it’s probably the single most critical litmus test available in America today for who is with us as traditional Americans and who is not.

The 1619 Project's claims as absurd as red meat being the centerpiece of American history
R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., Washington Times
People who advocate a racially-based (CRT) curriculum are not teaching peace, but a long line of complaints that can only increase hostility among the citizenry. Arguing that slavery is the centerpiece of American history is as absurd as arguing that red meat is the centerpiece of American history. The centerpiece of American history is the maintenance of freedom, and people that argue otherwise are in danger of losing their freedom.

Unions Sell Out Their Own Workers for the Biden Energy Plan
Stephen Moore, CNS News
There is something wretched about rich, college-educated "humanitarians" pontificating about the sacrifices that must be made to stop global warming, but then they come up with plans that make other people suffer all the pain. If climate change meant every college professor, media personality, and million-dollar donor to the EDF had to lose their livelihoods, I doubt they would be so supportive of this green economic "transformation."

Power Back to the People
Cal Thomas, The Epoch Times
As I see President Biden issuing record numbers of executive orders, bypassing the authority of Congress, and Congress on a spending binge that is driving the debt to record and unsustainable levels, perhaps threatening our very survival, I have come to the conclusion that nothing but a carefully organized and controlled Article V constitutional convention can return power to where the Founders intended it to reside—with the people.

Polarization and Biden's ratings
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Biden's 100-day job approval rating should be seen as the latest in a long line of increasing partisan gaps. And with Biden, the post-100-day gap is likely to grow even larger, because his post-100-day agenda is likely to be more partisan than his concentration on COVID in his first 100 days. After sowing so much doubt about the election of Trump, should Dems be surprised that some Republicans have taken a similar attitude toward Biden?

Media Hungry Health Advisers Now Support The Same Masking Policies That Scott Atlas Was Ousted For Promoting
Jordan Davidson, The Federalist
While Atlas pointed to data that signaled “one of the biggest failures of the faces of public health in this country” was extended lockdowns, Big Tech censored him. As the CDC continues to pull back on its recommendations, many of which have been scrutinized for lacking scientific evidence, Atlas’s claims that were once used by politicians, the corporate media, and other grifters to write off science are suddenly making a comeback.

The DC Statehood Power Grab
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
What is D.C.'s grievance here? Answer: Democrats want D.C. to have two senators to cement their control of the U.S. Senate, as they pack the Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to 13. This is a naked national power grab — pure and simple. If the real concern were the inability of the D.C. electorate to vote for members of Congress, that could be remedied — by returning the residential portions of D.C. to Maryland.

The Feds’ Nonexistent Case Against Alleged Sicknick Assailants
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
There is no reason to keep these men in jail, let alone in solitary confinement in a Washington D.C. prison. Cherry-picked video evidence does not support the weapon charges against them; the chief investigator confessed no evidence exists to prove the can of spray ever was used or that Julian Khater sprayed it at anyone including police officers. The Justice Department’s refusal to allow access to video evidence raises plenty of red flags.

Inflation Might Bring Down Biden: Republicans, Take Heed
David P. Goldman, PJ Media
Inflation is an insidious tax that robs the poor and middle class. It favors the government, the world’s biggest debtor, because the government expects to pay back its creditors in Monopoly money. It crushes the real earnings of the vast majority of American households and destroys their savings. That’s what the Dems are up to. It’s time for Republicans to hold Joe Biden to account for the disaster that has already begun to befall America.

Fauci Was the Worst Choice to Helm COVID Response
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The Chinese Communist Party—for its continued “gain of function” research and its obfuscation of the ensuing COVID disaster—is to blame for everything that happened. So far, they have escaped retribution. Dr. Fauci, of course, kept his mouth shut on the matter. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you or, more precisely, that you fed. Trump was saddled with Fauci as the director of the NIAID, one of the more unfortunate occurrences of our time.

John Kerry Should Resign — Or Be Fired
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
John Kerry has seriously bad judgment in dealing with America’s adversaries — bad judgment that has been on display right from the very beginning of what would become his entire career. Now his word is to be trusted as he runs around the globe as the American climate czar? Wow. Make no mistake. With the Biden era a mere 100 days in, John Kerry should, if common sense were to prevail, be the first Biden appointee to resign — or be fired.

100 days in, Biden, the coward, needs to retire
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
Biden has always been one to go along to get along — even if that meant palling around with people like Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia, the retired Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan. It also tells you just how politically craven Mr. Biden is capable of being. Matters of race and justice and truth are so irrelevant to Mr. Biden that he is willing to twist and exploit any of them for political gain. This is profoundly sick.

The New Antiracism Is the Old Racism
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The anti-racist woke movement is largely fueled by the upper- and self-segregating classes—elites who have done well and are using race either to do even better by seeking mandatory concessions, or whites who sympathize with such agendas, or believe they will win exemption from career impairment by their virtue-signaling fides. They recall calculating czarist Russian aristocrats who felt Lenin was inevitable but still easily leveraged.

Trump 2.0 Should Be the Education President
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
We are in crisis, destroying more of our youth by the minute and with them America’s future. In so doing, Trump would be expanding his base. Conservative activists are far from the only people who are appalled by what is going on in our schools. Parents and grandparents across the country—who have seen it all on Zoom now—are worried stiff about what is happening to their children though many are too fearful of repercussions to speak up.

Portland’s Pusillanimous Mayor
David Catron, The American Spectator
Mayor Ted Wheeler isn’t in much danger, and he likes to play it safe. And despite fleeing from his condo, he isn’t sleeping in his car. As the Willamette Week points out, Wheeler has a number of comfortable places to hide, including “a $1.3 million home in Portland’s West Hills, a beachfront home in Arch Cape, Ore., and an $800,000 property in the San Juan Islands.” It isn’t too much to say that Wheeler and Portland deserve one another.

A Rigged System Can’t Last
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Normal people only take getting bopped on the noggin by the southpaw monkey in the Nairobi Trio for so long before they hit back. You cannot have an enduring status quo where one side is firmly bound to rules and obligations while the other gets to make it up as they go along. Eventually, you will inevitably reach a breaking point. And that’s coming. Then the bad guys are going to miss the rules that they still expect to protect them.

Old Joe Biden vs. New Joe Biden
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Joe Biden's "new" radical views on race, government institutions, climate change and criminal justice represent such sudden, wholesale reversals that they invite skepticism about his sincerity and whether he is fully in charge of his faculties. Does he really believe these things, or are they convenient lurches to keep up with the "wingnuts"? Does he recognize the implications of his condemnations of law enforcement and white Americans?

When a Judge Dares to Call Out Leftist Media Bias
Tim Graham, CNS News
The liberal media and their defenders are great at dishing out criticism and horrible at taking it. Mock them and you endanger the First Amendment. Accuse them and you're accusing democracy itself. Freedom of speech is for liberal elites, not for conservative rabble. They imply the most disturbing and unacceptable exercise of free speech is to denounce the media as Democratic propagandists. Who really championing the First Amendment?

 

Is America Led Today By Anti-Americans?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
1960s radicals who vilified our country as "Amerika" were rightly called "anti-American." Today, the difference between what they said about America and what our highest elected leaders are saying is hard to discern. When Biden and Harris spoke of "systemic racism" afflicting our society, they were not describing their enlightened selves. And it was Hillary Clinton who identified the people the leftist elites have in mind: deplorables.

Why Chauvin Verdict Disappointed Democrats
David Catron, The American Spectator
If the jury had failed to convict Chauvin, violent protests would have erupted in dozens of cities. This would have allowed the Democrats, aided by all-too-vivid scenes of urban chaos provided by the media, would have been able to put enormous pressure on Senate Republicans to pass a de facto police defunding bill. This is why Democrats seemed crestfallen when they heard the verdict. It almost certainly means HR 1280 is a dead letter.

The Big Snitch Is Here—America Goes Stasi
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
I believe we should be concerned, if not more, that we are beginning to resemble East Germany with its State Security Service, better known as the Stasi. We may be used to it already to some degree because of Big Tech, but this is more than one turn of the screw further. So be careful if you have, in your past, present, or future, any “implicit bias,” let alone “explicit bias,” because that could mean, as we know … just about anything.

Senate Republicans Just Handed Matches to Arsonist
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Joe Biden, his administration, and congressional Democrats haven’t wasted any time in their effort to radically transform the country, not to mention stoke a dangerous race war. Republicans aren’t just flat-footed in opposition, they are complicit in empowering this destructive regime. It’s hard to see why rank-and-file Republicans should keep sending the same craven bunch of leftist accomplices to Washington. Maybe one day, they’ll stop.

This Trial Was A Disgrace
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
A towering heap of due process violations made this trial a farce. Not because of the evidence, but because the establishment decided to tamper with the jury. No, no one overtly told the jurors how to vote, but did anyone need to? Do you imagine any jury member was unaware of what was in store for them if they determined the evidence defined the narrative and acquitted? Yet, our elite will not just accept it. Our elite will celebrate it.

Crime rates spike, as social warriors take charge
Kelly Sadler, Washington Times
Liberal politicians, by championing BLM, are causing a distortion in reality. They’re also indirectly causing crime rates to jump in Black communities around the country as police officers back away from their jobs, and some quit altogether. Calls for police reform may be justified, but defunding the police or abolishing it altogether like some progressive lawmakers advocate is a step backwards and will lead to even more tragic deaths.

 

Biden’s Dismal Start
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Only the expansion of the federal government is guaranteed under Biden. Today’s progressives still harbor Karl Marx's hope of eliminating religion. In his quest to exceed the liberalism of FDR and LBJ, Biden is peddling a progressivism that seeks to shrink traditional liberties while enlarging government, except where it counts, at the border. This agenda, of course, meets with the press’s approval, but for the people it will soon pall.

How Much Ruin Do We Have Left?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
All of the centuries-old reasons to be confident in American resiliency have been put into doubt. Adam Smith said of successful nations that they have a lot of “ruin” in them. He meant that a dissolute, leisured and ahistorical generation has to waste a lot of its generous inherited wealth before it runs out. We are learning how much of the wealth will be left. And the rest of the world is watching — some with glee, others with horror.

A Troubled Rule of Law
Heather Mac Donald, City Journal
Last year, the U.S. saw the largest percentage increase in homicides in the nation’s recorded history, thanks to depolicing. It has continued in 2021. It will worsen. The victims will initially be, as always, the thousands of law-abiding blacks in vulnerable urban neighborhoods who yearn for more police protection. But the power of riot ideology—the blackmailing of institutions with the threat of black rage—is too advantageous to give up.

The Definition of Insanity Regarding Mass Murder
Christopher C. Hull, The Epoch Times
Who decides who is non-dangerous? Instead of more gun control, here’s an idea, which Pres. Trump was panned for saying: Why don’t we stop the ACLU from keeping so many violent maniacs in our midst? That is, to stop mass killings, why not lock up maniacal murderers, rather than taking sane people’s guns? After all, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. And you don’t have to be Einstein to see it.

Beware of Dems’ Proposed Domestic Terrorism Law
Betsy McCaughey, The Epoch Times
Chuck Schumer and the Democrats’ efforts to label only right-leaning groups as domestic terrorists is un-American. The First Amendment guarantees that we can join any political group we like, as long as we don’t commit a crime. If protesters attack a courthouse, assault cops, or loot stores, there are enough laws on the books to punish them. And offenders should get the same treatment, whether they identify with Antifa or the Proud Boys.

Weighing the theatrics around the Chauvin verdict
Cal Thomas, Washington Times
Demonstrations, riots and looting around the country since Floyd's death had to have influenced the jury, the media and public opinion. Three other officers remain to be tried in the Floyd case, but the verdict may already be in on them as well. How can a jury not have been influenced by the lawlessness and the outcome of the Chauvin trial? Is this the way our justice system is to proceed in the future? Will we have trials by mob rule?

The Defamation League
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Fox News evening host Tucker Carlson slaughtered the false narrative of the ADL and the rest of the hacks attempting to cancel him with a long dissertation on the mass migration and its effect on the American polity, in California in particular. What had been a reliably Republican state likely never will be again thanks to migration from foreign countries to that state, and Californians have been evacuating in droves for two decades.

Postcards From the Catastrophe
Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times
If you have that populist Walmart stink that attaches to those HRC placed in her infamous Basket of Deplorables, then you belong to a different tribe, almost a different species, from those whom the governing bureaucracy has anointed. It’s not what the founders of this country envisioned. But it’s been clear for some time that our masters hold everything associated with that dispensation, from the Constitution on down, in utter contempt.

The White House 'crisis' crisis
Byron York, Washington Examiner
The Biden administration came into office declaring crises right and left. Now White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Biden faced "four overlapping and compounding crises." By that he meant "the COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a racial equity crisis." The bottom line, the thing to remember, is Team Biden is happy to talk about crises -- as long as they haven't been created by Team Biden itself.

The left-wing hysteria machine
John Feehery, The Hill
Two camps when it comes to left wing hysteria. One camp has completely tuned it out. They go maskless, take their kids to little league games, and otherwise live normal lives. The other camp is so riddled with anxiety and fear that they can’t leave their houses unless it is to throw rocks at some police officers to protest the latest indignity or better yet, post the latest sign in their front yard. First they have to put on their masks.

The Republican Establishment Still Doesn’t Get It on Immigration
Rich Lowry, National Review
If there’s a lesson from Donald Trump’s takeover of the GOP, it’s that the party’s old consensus on immigration is no longer sustainable. Yet there’s still a reflex toward the lazy conventional wisdom that all that ails the country is lack of an agreement on amnesty for illegal immigrants already here and increase numbers of legal immigrants, in exchange for more border security — commonly known as “comprehensive immigration reform.”

Auntie Maxine rides again
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
We came together and condemned the action by Chauvin and the other officers involved with George Floyd. Now, the just verdict could be upended by a court of appeal in part because of a woman who does not seem to care that incitement and intimidation have consequences. One thing is clear — Maxine Waters’ history of wanting more “confrontation” to accommodate her political agenda continues to do damage to this country and to the rule of law.

 

Who Will Be the Next 'America First' President?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
As domestic concerns are predominant — COVID-19, the invasion across our Southern border, soaring crime rates, race relations as raw as they have been in decades — it is time for U.S. statesman to look out for America and Americans first, and let the world look out for itself. Among the reasons the U.S. emerged victorious in the 20th century was that we stayed out of the two world wars longer than any of the other great powers.

From ‘Insurrectionists’ to ‘Interruptionists’
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
In the aftermath of January 6, Democrats, the news media, and lots of Republicans vowed to stop at nothing to hold accountable every “insurrectionist” involved in the protest. Yet more than 100 days later, most defendants are accused of acting as “interruptionists”—Americans who may have acted recklessly but no more criminally, for the most part, than violent protests against Trump’s inauguration or Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
