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.

Curing COVID-19 with the Mushroom Treatment
David Catron, The American Spectator
Harvard's Dr. Martin Kulldorff says you no longer need to wear a mask two weeks after being vaccinated and that, “When Dr. Fauci goes out and says you still have to wear a mask, it reduces public trust in vaccines.” This is the kind of thing Biden doesn’t want us thinking about. For them, it’s all about power, and they will continue to give us the mushroom treatment as long it provides a pretext to restrict our civil liberties.

A Real (Consumer) Revolution Is Starting to Take Over Education
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
A consumer approach is percolating, consciously and unconsciously, thorough the educational system. It goes from the lower grades, where home schooling (some with new forms that make it more enriching than most conventional schools) takes precedence, all the way up to college and graduate school where new methods of evaluating their usefulness are being scrutinized. Should everyone go to college? Is it worth it? And if so, where?

Reparations are both condescending and counterproductive
Rep. Burgess Owens, Washington Times
Reparations will not and cannot help our cause as Black Americans. Our community’s strong commitment to faith, family, free market and education allowed it to overcome unspeakable odds. If we are sincere about paying reparations, we should celebrate this proud history, not continue to demean it. A good start is to promote policies that support innovative education, bolster small businesses and entrepreneurs, and strengthen families.

Democrats Sacrifice D.C. Statehood on Electoral College Altar
Rich Manning, Townhall
The cede back to Maryland solution is clean, attainable and constitutionally viable. Cede the residential areas of D.C. back to Maryland and repeal the 23rdamendment to empower these Americans.  Unfortunately, just as the Democrats motive for D.C. statehood are two additional Senators, the loss of two Electoral College votes stands as those same Democrats roadblock to a Constitutional pathway to the vote for the people of D.C.

The Joe Biden Who Never Was
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Biden is proving the Biden he always was—as incompetent as Jimmy Carter, without the latter’s probity. He may prove as corrupt as Bill Clinton yet without his animal energy. His narcissism matches that of Al Gore and John Kerry, but without even their thin veneer of assumed authority. He is a greater racial divider than Barack Obama but without Obama’s smooth contextualizations. And the media worships Biden as it masks his crudity.

America’s Inflation Staycation
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
The Federal Reserve’s balance sheet more than doubled in the last 18 months. It now approaches $8 trillion. The laws of supply and demand apply not merely to gasoline and lumber and housing but to money, too. When central bankers expand the money supply as to more than double the securities holdings of the FED since September of 2019, this necessarily devalues the money in our accounts, under our mattresses, and in our old shoe boxes.

Who Killed Ashli Babbitt
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Brace yourself for a startling revelation, but they don’t want to tell you because the garbage media is totally dedicated to supporting the liberal establishment narrative. And if that means covering up for an apparently unjustified police shooting because the victim isn’t one of the chosen – if a cop capped a BLM or Antifa scumbag the media would be cheering the fiery mostly-peaceful protests that would inevitably ensue – so be it.

Trump didn't form a populist coalition. He was the result of one
Salena Zito, Washington Examiner
Cultural curators in the media, corporations, and the so-called social justice warriors just can't dislodge themselves from their narrow idea that if you voted for Trump or any other Republican, you are part of this thing that needs to become extinct. These voters are telling you through their signs that that is not going to happen. Remember the next time you see a Trump sign in a yard, it's not the hot take seen on social media.

Joe Biden’s flavors of the weak
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
One of the pitfalls involves the emerging personality of the presidency and the ways it is expressing its core to the country and world. The early evidence reveals Biden is an extremely weak leader. In fact, he looks more and more like a follower with a halting gait. He’s 78 and often appears to be 88. His decision to always wear a mask, despite being vaccinated and surrounded by others who are vaccinated, adds a sense of frailty.

Anthony Fauci, America's high priest of scientism, wears out his welcome
Everett Piper, Washington Times
Anthony Fauci is no longer viewed as our nation’s sober “scientist” because he’s not one. Instead, he has shown himself to be a political opportunist and our country’s new high priest of “scientism.” But all is not lost. There is a remnant. Millions of us are waking up from the bad dream, and we have pulled back the curtain and see the wizard is a fraud. Americans finally recognize that Anthony Fauci is the science-denier, not us.

Let’s Choke Woke Coke
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
James Quincey is the target. He needs to be canceled. Coca-Cola should be the subject of the most hostile economic action possible — including boycotts, shorts, vexatious health-hazard class action lawsuits, distributorship revolts, you name it — until Quincey is forced out of his job. When he’s gone, when that scalp is taken, when our picked, frozen, personalized, and polarized target is obliterated, then we can make “common ground.”

Biden Bids Farewell to a 'Forever War'
Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators
Biden ends a forever war. For a generation now, we have been stomping barefoot on anthills and throwing rocks into bees' nests across the Middle and Near East. And to what avail? The nation-builders, the democratists, the liberal interventionists, the New World Order crowd are, today, being repudiated by Biden's decision to write off their 20-year project in the Hindu Kush. One wonders: Will they soon call Joe Biden an isolationist?

How to Start a War
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Iran may conclude that the U.S. has distanced itself from Israel and moderate Arabs. Either Iran will feel it can up its aggression, or its enemies will conclude they have no choice but to take out all Iranian nuclear facilities. Biden should adhere to the old American diplomatic adages about speaking softly while carrying a big stick, keeping China and Russia apart, being no better friend (or worse enemy) and letting sleeping dogs lie.

CBS’s Refusal To Even Explain Itself Is The New, Shameless Reality For Republicans And Conservatives
Christopher Bedford, The Federalist
The disinformation machine built to fight Trump contributed a great deal to his defeat, but far from disassembling their new weapon after the battle, corporate media simply turned it on the next targets: Republicans like DeSantis and conservatives like Tucker Carlson. This is the new reality, and there’s no going back so long as corporate media’s liberal audience continues to clamor for more blood. We must prepare to fight it boldly.

Democrats led by a whole Squad of ghoulish opportunists
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
When it comes to exploiting Black voters and tossing Molotov cocktails in neighborhoods these political parasites are forever in a race to the bottom. Every bit of the burning and looting is fueled by the crazed and unfounded claims made by these politicians in Washington. Last summer, our current VP actually raised money to spring looting rioters from prison so that they could get back out onto the streets for more looting and rioting.

Big Business Joins the Other Crumbling Pillars of Society
Conrad Black, American Greatness
What a pitiful trajectory the woke leaders of large American corporations have traced as American business has crumbled along with other pillars of society as if in a choreographed sequence. These people are poltroons and posturers. Each of these pillars has crumbled and each will be rebuilt and the era of flabby, overpaid executives telling Americans how to run their elections will be soon looked back upon with disdain and incredulity.

Biden’s Demagogic Habits

George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Biden’s stated desire for an end to racial division is no more sincere than his desire for robust democracy. His plans to pack the Supreme Court give the lie to that claim. If he cares so much about the “voice” of the people, why has he long supported a judicial despotism that squelches the people’s voice? It is precisely because Biden and the Dems mistrust the people that they invest so much energy in expanding the judiciary's power.

‘America First’ in Vaccinations
Betsy McCaughey, The Epoch Times
Trump insisted he’d have vaccines ready by the end of 2020, a goal naysayers like Anthony Fauci said was impossible. Without the contracts giving the U.S. first dibs on supply, America would have been left high and dry like the Europeans. Worse, the vaccines might never have been produced. Trump’s intervention made warp speed vaccine development less risky for the companies doing it. That’s key because this is not the last pandemic.

The Coming Backlash
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The 2022 election will be key. We’re going to crush the left. Why? Because things will get worse, much worse. Crime. A wrecked economy. China will kick our woke military’s behind. Think Jimmy Carter in 1980. This will be a tough fight, and it is only the beginning. Just do not fall into despair. Do not withdraw – they prefer you submit but they will settle for you giving up (for now – they’ll come for you eventually). Do not fear them.

An epidemic of Police Violence?
John Hinderaker, Powerline
If you didn’t know better, you would think that we are experiencing an epidemic of police violence against black men. If there is an epidemic going on, it is perhaps an epidemic of resisting arrest. Daunte Wright, like George Floyd and many others, chose to wrestle with police rather than be peacefully arrested. Moreover, as in most cases, including Floyd’s, Wright’s contentious police encounter was consistent with a history of violence.

The Press Is Infrastructure for Biden
Tim Graham, CNS News
Most Americans have grasped the obvious fact that the "mainstream" media is actually the "Demstream" media. Republicans disapprove of the media, and Dems approve of the media for the same reason. Their function is to create the best conditions for "social change," and glowing poll numbers for Dems and their leftist agenda. The press is now just "infrastructure" for Biden, evolving "to meet the aspirations of" the president and his needs.

Corporate America’s Empty Virtue Signaling
Editors, National Review
The statement itself is so generic, we doubt any Georgia Republican who supported the bill would have trouble signing it themselves. Perhaps duly chastened by the repeated failure of critics to accurately describe the contents of the Georgia law, the statement doesn't even mention Georgia. It is simply empty virtue signaling. Which is better than the alternative, but it illustrates how badly the campaign against the law has misfired.

The Voter Suppression Swindle
David Catron, The American Spectator
There isn’t any objective data to support the claim that there is any real substance to the voter suppression narrative that has now become a mainstay of Democratic talking points, portentous media reports, and the moral posturing of corporate CEOs. Nor are the voters listening. The voter suppression swindle is a flop. Voters aren’t dumb enough to fall for historically illiterate allusions to Jim Crow. They just want honest elections.

The Chamber of Swamp
Ned Ryun, American Greatness
The Chamber is no friend of capitalism. The good news is that more people are waking up to the fact that not only is the Chamber not a friend to conservatism or Republicans, it’s not even really a friend to small businesses, the backbone of the American free enterprise system. Many of the small business members are in fact fleeing the Chamber in recent times and some D.C. Republicans are finally realizing who their real friends are.

The perpetual pandemic
Stephen L. Miller, The Spectator
As more and more people become immunized against both the virus and hesitant elites — life is going to resume whether the ruling class wants it to or not. As the institutional figureheads find excuses to prolong the pandemic, their several messaging missteps mean their words aren’t having the intended effect. Soon enough, the politicians, pundits and ‘experts’ will see that Americans are content to leave them behind and tune them out.

Going grifting via Black Lives Matter
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
Unfortunately, the shock of having been betrayed is a familiar refrain on the left. The few organizers then get filthy rich (sometimes even elected into office or violently overthrow existing governments) while sincere activists who are used to perpetuate the ‘movement’ lose everything, get arrested or injured during riots, or slink away dejected when they see nothing changing or even getting worse. Don't dare mention this on Twitter!

Biden's Green Energy Plan Declares War on American Energy
Stephen Moore, CNS News
Let's have a grown-up discussion on energy policy. Biden must put jobs first and stop treating our domestic oil and gas producers as the enemies of progress. Oil and natural gas power our computers, our cars and trucks, our factories, our furnaces, our cellphones — and all that our $22 trillion industrial economy encompasses. To "build back better," let those producers be part of an "all-of-the-above" reliable all-America energy policy.

Media cheers a return to the failed Iran deal
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
The efforts to separate from Israel and woo Iran illustrate how Biden is determined to breathe new life into the foreign policies of the Obama-Biden administration, even the failures. Chief among them is casting Israel as more of an obstacle to peace than a unique friend and ally. Doubt about regional policy is a formula for trouble that already has emboldened Iran and led Israel to act without waiting for American approval or help.

Grasping for Raw Power Behind the Biden Chaos
Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times
There's a palpable sense of things spinning out of control. There is no ideal that won’t be trashed and inverted in order to advance the agenda of power, no rhetoric that won’t be cynically deployed and emptied of meaning. These are the sorts disillusioning revelations in store for us in the era of woke radicalism. You though you understood how bankrupt and cynical the game of politics was. It turns out you didn’t know the half of it.

Latest Assault on Tucker Carlson Over Replacement Theory Backfires
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
Tucker Carlson has spoken an obvious truth. No matter the players, when one group or culture settles inside another and proceeds to try and change that culture, changing the political dynamics along the way, there is bound to be opposition. The Democrat Party is in fact deliberately seeking to do exactly this, making red states blue in their obsessive quest for political power. Tucker's critics shot themselves in their progressive feet.
