Ken Cuccinelli, Social Conservatives Launch Effort to Kill HR 1
Philip Wegmann, Real Clear Politics
A trio of pro-family and anti-abortion groups led by Trump alum Ken Cuccinelli will soon launch a multimillion-dollar campaign to restore confidence in election outcomes among social conservatives. Cuccinelli, the former deputy secretary of homeland security and Virginia attorney general, will chair the Election Transparency Initiative. The Susan B. Anthony List and the American Principles Project are partners, and the effort has an initial war chest of $5 million. Conservatives are on board.

Biden’s ‘Faith-Based’ Office
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Biden seeks not to protect faith but to corrupt it by drawing the faithful into left-wing political causes. Meanwhile, as in the case of the Little Sisters of the Poor, he supports using government power to coerce the faithful into violating their consciences. One of the Left’s longstanding projects has been to take religion out of religion while putting politics into it. The latest is Biden’s “faith-based” office, which is not a concession to the religious but an attempt to con them.

Lies the Supreme Court Told Me
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
I am cynical about the Supreme Court. It’s even true of the law in general, which I want to believe in and admire, but increasingly no longer do. The law belongs to those who have the deepest control of a society at the time. We want lady justice to be blind but in actuality she’s a cyborg with all-seeing, rotating night vision similar to the kind you might find on many urban street corners today from Beijing to Chicago, using the latest algorithms to isolate presumed enemies of the state.

Why we need an inquiry into January 6
Roger Kimball, The Spectator
I support Pelosi’s call for an inquiry into the events of January 6. Like her, I think it is important to ‘get to the truth of how this happened’. I am not, however, sure she is going to like what a free and unbiased inquiry would reveal. Were she serious, she would support Judicial Watch's effort to make public emails, videos and other material about what happened that day. Why, for example, did the Capitol police at some entrances open the doors to protesters and welcome them inside?

The GOP’s 2024 Race Will Be Brutal And It’s a Fight We Need to Have
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
At the threshold, there is a key question – does President Trump run again? I think not. He’ll be older. He’s already proven himself, and his legacy will only improve as * screws up (though the lib historians will never credit Trump for his many successes). But it would be less fun for him next time, especially since it would be an uphill fight, and being a kingmaker has its charms. Plus, a 2024 run backs up our GOP bench for another two-to-six years. We still love the guy, but I don’t see it.

John Kerry never got out of bed with Iran
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
By meeting with Iran, what Kerry and other wash-outs from the Obama administration were doing with Iran was actively undermining the foreign policy of an elected administration. And they were doing that AFTER Americans voters had clearly chosen a starkly different path for dealing with the terrorist mullahs of Iran. By any measure, these clandestine efforts violated the Logan Act, not to mention flagrant collusion with an avowed enemy of the United States. And, perhaps, another thing: Treason.

No Proof January 6 Was an ‘Armed Insurrection’
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Fewer than 1,000 “stormed” the Capitol on January 6. A few hundred have been arrested and only 14 face weapons charges. Those “deadly and dangerous” weapons include two baseball bats, a can of pepper spray, a walking stick/stun gun, an axe, a few fire extinguishers (one in question), a helmet, a riot shield, and a collapsible baton. And at no time did this random weaponry pose a lethal threat to lawmakers inside the Capitol. Was January 6, 2021 an “armed insurrection” or anything close? No.

Court Docs Show Facebook Played Much Bigger Part In Capitol Riot Than Parler, Yet No Consequences
Rachel Bovard, The Federalist
Yes, Parler was used, in some form, to promote and discuss the violent aspects of Jan. 6. But so too were other major social media platforms—and in a much larger way than Parler. The Department of Justice has now charged 223 people for their participation in the events of Jan. 6. A comprehensive analysis of those charging documents performed by Forbes demonstrate that Parler’s role was minimal, compared to that of Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. Facebook appeared to be the rioters' favorite.

Vaccination Rollout: Red States Outpace Blue States
David Catron, The American Spectator
Dr. Marty Makary wrote that COVID cases have dropped 77 percent in six weeks and that we may reach herd immunity by spring. No matter how awful Democrats are at public health, we are approaching the point at which natural immunity will reduce coronavirus to the quotidian status of the flu. But Biden warns that life may not return to normal due to the ravages of COVID-19, and we know he “follows the science.” I mean, the president wouldn’t exploit a pandemic for political reasons, would he?

Joe Biden brings America back to bad Obama days
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
It’s as if President Joe Biden has been seized by a sentimental longing to try to make the world like it was when the Obama-Biden administration left office. Unfortunately, “The Way We Were” is a nice song but not much of a guide to the future. Still, trying to recapture the past would be reasonable if those years had created prosperity at home and peace abroad. In fact, the world ­Donald Trump inherited was brist­ling with trouble and America’s economy was moving forward at a snail’s pace.

What were the Capitol rioters thinking?
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Taken together, the court papers portray the Oath Keepers as a ragtag group living in a delusional world, planning a delusional operation to bring about some sort of delusional outcome. There's still much more to learn about the riot. Indeed, with the Capitol Police refusing to release even the most basic information about the event, it is difficult to understand much of what went on. But the criminal cases are picking up steam, and through them, we can finally get a better idea of what happened.

A path forward for the GOP in 2022 and 2024
Henry Barbour, Washington Times
By focusing on policy and getting things done, the Republican Party can regain the confidence of our traditional conservative base and those who left us in the last four years. Importantly, Republicans should do all this with civility. We can hold our political adversaries accountable for their harmful policies, but treat them as fellow Americans, even when they don’t return the favor. Republicans have come back before and can do so again if we come together and focus on the right things.

The Uniparty’s Wishful Thinking
Conrad Black, American Greatness
It is starting to look like the beginning of the fall of a row of Democratic dominoes: Pelosi loses her political mind, the media-confected canonization of Andrew Cuomo explodes, the vain and incompetent Gavin Newsom is on the verge of being recalled, and the ludicrous imposture of the Lincoln Project disintegrates amid charges of sexual perversion and gross pecuniary corruption. The notion that Donald Trump is about to be abandoned by the force that he created is poor and wishful thinking.

Is Biden Prepared to Lose Afghanistan?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Our national debt is larger than our economy. We are running deficits unseen since the late days of World War II. Our economy has sustained crippling blows from a year-long pandemic that has taken the lives of half a million Americans. A migrant invasion appears to be shaping up on our 2,000-mile Southern border. Our country is as divided as it has been since the Civil War. And we seek to remain the nation that writes the rules for the world order in the 21st century. Something's gotta give.

Media’s censorious gatekeepers are mad — because they’re losing power
Glenn H. Reynolds, New York Post
The media-Big Tech regime is doing its best to silence opponents and seize control of the high ground, the news from within is grim. They aren’t happy with how things are going. They know they’re losing. Some are losing audiences and revenues. But more important, they’re losing control of the narrative. The complaint is that people are bypassing the gatekeepers and saying what they want to say. Given the behavior of the gatekeepers, that doesn’t seem like a bug but a feature. Bypass away!

Life in DeSantis’s Florida: Time Travel to America
George Parry, The American Spectator
The fact Biden would brazenly threaten to shut down travel to and from Florida may correctly be seen as a sign that, thanks to their successful massive use of unverified and unverifiable mail-in ballots and the unqualified support of the media, academia, Big Tech Robber Barons, and major woke elements of corporate America, the Democrats believe they have the formula for “winning” elections and maintaining control of the government regardless of how many of the middle and working class they ruin.

US Should Emulate Poland on Fining Big Tech Censors
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The Poles are proposing new laws that would impose fines of $13.5 million on Big Tech social media companies that censor users or remove posts for ideological reasons. What is inherent in their fines is forcing social media into being public squares without a flotilla of jejune twenty-somethings censoring every opinion they believe (or are told to believe) is out of line. I generally lean libertarian but in this case I’m for putting that ideology aside and making these companies public utilities.

Media Jump From Melania-Bashing to Jill Biden Scrunchie Infatuation
Tim Graham, CNS News
Melania Trump didn't go "out and about in Washington," for fear of all the poison pens. The same media outlets who treated the Trumps' marriage as a cynical ongoing negotiation lunged to portray the Clintons as an inspiring romance, a baby-boomer Belle and the Beast. The Bidens may be great lovers. But everything at the White House has a large degree of calculation in it. Everyone should know the gushing liberal newspapers and magazines are aggressively engaged in the politics of humanization.

Our Descent Into Collective Madness
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
The most elite in America are the most likely to damn the privilege of those who lack it. If blaming those without advantages does not satisfy the unhappy liberal elite, then there is always warring against the mute dead: changing their eponymous names, destroying their statues, slandering their memories and denying their achievements. The common denominator with all these absurdities? An ungracious and neurotic elite whose judgment is bankrupt and whose privilege is paid for by those who don’t have it.

‘Power to the People’: The GOP Bloodbath Has Begun
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
So how do we determine who stays and goes in the current Republican Party without turning into our own version of Robespierre, which is a self-defeating lust for endless revenge? It won’t be easy because people are various with varying motives. We all change with time and circumstance. But I would suggest we examine a politician’s responses to three very recent events: the presidential election, the so-called “insurrection” of January 6 and the bizarre, despicable second Trump impeachment.

The Coming Parent Revolt Over School Reopening
David Catron, The American Spectator
If teachers don’t go back to work, there will be many more such lawsuits. If that fails, it’s time to start firing teachers. In the end, the inflexibility of the teachers unions is a function of its individual members. There is no significant risk associated with in-person instruction. The teachers know it, and the science proves it. Most importantly, the parents know it. If teachers remain intransigent and the Dems acquiesce in their obstinance, parents will certainly revolt at the ballot box.

Our Military’s SJW-Driven Abandonment of Warfighting Is Going to Get Troops Killed
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The military used to be a welcoming safe space for patriots. But no more. With this insane babbling about “internal enemies,” does anyone think that potential recruits do not understand that this slur is what the liberal elite that the military brass obeys calls people like them and their families? Let’s be very clear – when your priority is social justice nonsense instead of preparing to fight and win, you are opening up a lane for the enemy and the enemy is going to drive right through it.

Republican voters are tired of a party that simply wants to 'hold the line'
Michael McKenna, Washington Times
Trump vs. McConnell. The intramural tussle between Republicans is not going to be settled by pundits or party platforms or people who write columns. It is going to be settled by candidates and voters and elections. Electability is what the political class preaches when they know the candidate in question has no intention of doing anything once in office. The days when it is was enough to have a pulse and not be a Democrat are probably over for Republican candidates. They need to adjust.

How Rush Limbaugh changed this leftist's life for the better
Tammy Bruce, Twitter
Rush Limbaugh set the tone for entertainment, analysis & education. Honest conversations open to everyone is anathema to the left which is why they’re obsessed w creating fear & the cancel culture. Rush not only changed our lives by helping us understand the imperative of freedom & generosity, but he now serves as an even more essential example for all of us. Thank you sir, for the time you took with an arrogant & smug LA leftist feminist, one of the millions of lives you changed for the better.

Rambling Joe
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Reporters and pundits continue to gush over President Joe Biden's “authenticity,” his endlessly “relatable” personality, and the “decency” that he “radiates.” CNN’s soft town hall with Biden on Tuesday night captured the chummy relationship that he enjoys with the press. It has gone from attack dog to lap dog. Propped up by an admiring media, Biden is under no pressure to “level” with the people. If anything, he knows that he can take unchallenged refuge in fashionable and complacent lies.

Legacy media protects Democrats by omission
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
Unlike with Trump, they shush when the Biden admin. tells them to shush. They approach White House press briefings as though they’re seeing high school chums for the first time in 10 years. The most noticeable things missing are the fake stories meant to harm the ability of the president to govern. Instead, real news of malfeasance and incompetence are being ignored, and in the rare moment when a media entity calls out a Democratic politician, it is quickly deleted, reversed, and memory-holed.

Mitch McConnell Has Learned Nothing And Forgotten Nothing
John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist
Maybe there’s an open midterm clash, maybe not. But for all the talk about what the GOP becomes post-Donald Trump, and whether Republicans need pro-Trump candidates in order to regain a Senate majority in 2022, this much is certain: there’s not been enough talk about McConnell’s dismal role in picking candidates in recent years. The last person the Republican Party should consult right now about who is electable and who is not is McConnell—a man who has learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Why Aren’t School Districts Giving Taxpayers Their Money Back?
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
Perhaps it is time for flash-fire local tax revolts led by homeowners demanding some of their money back. If school authorities claim no budget savings, school boards and mayors have a fiduciary obligation to require full audits to determine where all the money went. We know that many school districts continued to waste millions of dollars running school buses for months. The people who deserve a break are the tens of millions of taxpayers who paid for public educational services not rendered.

Biden repeats Obama’s mistakes by dissing Israel
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Obama made wooing Iran's mad mullahs his prime foreign policy objective and signed a pact with them. The pact actually paved the way for Iranian nukes, and some of the billions of dollars Iran got in the deal ended up financing its regional terror alliances, which, in addition to the Houthis, include Hezbollah and Hamas. Is that Biden’s playbook, to make the same mistake again? If it is, no wonder he doesn’t want to talk to Netanyahu or the Saudis. Neither will hesitate to tell him he’s a fool.

On that "9/11-Style" commission
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Pelosi says the House will investigate the Jan. 6 riot. Americans should know more about many, many topics right now. But significant parts of the Capitol riot are now shrouded in official secrecy. And the existence of multiple investigations will only make that worse, giving officials an excuse not to speak publicly because there is an active investigation going on. So before the big commission is formed and begins its work, how about Americans learn some of those basic facts about the riot?

Will the Radical Left Reunite the GOP?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
What can reunite a party as divided as it hasn't been since the Barry Goldwater-Nelson Rockefeller battle of 1964? The Democrats can; the left can; the establishment can; the media can; the cancel-cultural elite can — all of whom are disliked or detested by Republicans. Its enemies can reunite the Republican Party. When antifa, Black Lives Matter and leftist allies smashed statues, looted and torched inner cities and attacked cops in 2020, that was the norm. They were not Oath Keepers or Proud Boys.

Mitch McConnell Doesn’t Care If The Election Was Tainted, But You Should
John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist
The Jan. 6 attack was carried out by a few hundred people who had decided beforehand to take matters into their own hands. There is no evidence Trump had anything to do with it or had any knowledge of it beforehand. Democrats never even demonstrated that a significant number of rioters thought they were doing Trump’s bidding. 74 million Americans didn’t invade the Capitol, but tens of thousands of Americans were outside it protesting on Jan. 6. Why were they there? McConnell doesn’t care. But you should.

Janice Dean: Profile in Courage
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
Janice Dean has been vindicated. Vindicated big time. The revelation of Cuomo’s conduct of the virus and the lies told to protect his conduct has, as mentioned, launched those calls for his resignation, his impeachment, and, yes, even for his criminal prosecution. Vindication or not, surely none of this has been easy for Dean and her family. So many are figuring out how best to take care of beloved aging parents. And fighting for their right to do so as they see fit. Dean's is a profile in courage.

Exposing Andrew Cuomo's deadly lie
Cal Thomas, Washington Times
CNN, which employs Mr. Cuomo’s brother, Chris, didn’t appear to do much to look into nursing home deaths in New York or fact-check the governor’s claims. When Chris Cuomo had his brother on as a guest, the two often joked as if they were attending a family reunion. If shame has any meaning these days — and it doesn’t — CNN and Chris Cuomo should be repenting in sackcloth and ashes. The New York state legislature should begin impeachment proceedings and remove Governor Andrew Cuomo from office.

The Year of No Science
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Maybe we have been living in the Year of No Science for a long time, since the days people thought the world was flat, which was most of history by far. It could be that people today are equally ignorant about the truth—or nearly. The idea of “settled science” is an oxymoron spoken by fools. Climate and COVID are much the same. We should be humble before making definitive statements. And we should always be skeptical of politicians who say they are “trusting the scientists.” Which scientists and why?

The New York Times Retracts the Sicknick Story
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Now that the Times has essentially retracted its explosive article, will other news organizations, pundits, and lawmakers follow suit? Unfortunately, like so many media-manufactured stories about Trump and his supporters, millions of Americans believe the Sicknick story; even a Times’ correction won’t change their minds. Again, reporters who egregiously exploited a man’s untimely death to score political points against a man they revile won’t be held accountable. Another hoax down the memory hole.

The Wages of Trump Hatred
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Trump is free to tweet and post whenever and wherever he wants, but there will be nowhere else to tweet and post. So spoke the liberal descendants of the old Jim Crow racists who insisted they were free to deny service to anyone they wished, even when there were no alternatives to be found. Hating Donald Trump in the hater’s eyes makes one moral. But in the real world, such pathological fixations usually result in abject immorality and moral decline, as the hater becomes far worse than what he hates.

Debt and Taxes
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
The Federal Reserve’s balance sheet exceeds $7.4 trillion (below $5 trillion a year ago, a figure propped up after years of quantitative easing). Its assets grow in direct correlation with the amount of money it lends the U.S. Treasury, which can no longer coax investors to fund its gargantuan deficit. The debt weighs down the economy, becomes more burdensome with the predicted growth of interest rates, and dilutes your dollar. But rather than settling our accounts, politicians held an impeachment trial.

Biden's and Pelosi's (H.R. 1) war on Texas and America
Robert Knight, Washington Times
Do you think the 2020 election with zillions of mailed ballots, unconstitutional rule changes and late counting was, uh, at least questionable? Even before COVID-19, Democrats had been working overtime to weaken safeguards against vote fraud. Think of HR 1 as a nuclear strike on what remains of election integrity. The “For the People Act” would expose political donors, opening them up to mob harassment, as was done to Prop 8 marriage amendment supporters in California in 2008. This will enhance “unity.”

The Cons Are Alright
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
My guess is that Donald Trump has played his (crucial) role and will move on after humiliating the Democrats again by scoffing at their latest puny impeachment. He will be a kingmaker and an important asset in bringing forward the new blood we need to re-energize us. Populism had a tough four years. We’ll take a breather for a bit, then charge. Look at the new voices we’re seeing, often podcasters, and often of people who became at least conservative-curious because they saw the failures of the left.

The Democrats’ CCP Envy
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
What probably goes on somewhere in the head of the average liberal who once—it seems like decades ago—so ardently embraced civil liberties and the Bill of Rights is that the way of communist China is the inevitable way of the future. As the digital empire grows and robots take over the workforce, competing parties in a democratic republic will seem so old fashioned and just stand in the way of progress (read: getting rich). So what happened to the Chinese becoming like us? The reverse. We have become like them.

California’s Coming Recall
John Fund, National Review
ReformCalifornia.org says it has now surpassed the 1.5 million signatures needed to force a recall election this fall. Newsom has tried to paint the recall effort as “a handful of partisan activists” who back Donald Trump and want to “demonize California’s people and attack California’s values.” The safe money is on Gavin Newsom’s surviving a recall in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, he has shown a remarkable tendency to make political mistakes and lower voter trust. He could continue in this vein.

Dark Winter of a Grand Old Party
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
As Nixon's victory in 1968 and Reagan's in 1980 showed, a party comeback requires, first, the perceived failure of the opposition on issues of major concern to the great majority. A second and indispensable element of a party comeback is party unity, which Nixon and Reagan both produced, as Eisenhower had before them. The questions of the hour are these: Will the GOP be united against an incumbent party that is moving visibly leftward and dragging the country with it — and what will Donald Trump do?

Impeachment Betrays Democrat Distrust of Voters
David Catron, The American Spectator
Aside from the presidency, the voters weren’t kind to the Democrats in 2020. They lost seats in the House, barely eked out a tie in the Senate, and suffered crucial losses in gubernatorial as well as state legislative races. They’re afraid the American people will measure them up and once again find them wanting. If they lose half a dozen seats in the House and a couple of Senate seats in 2022, the Biden administration is done. And two years later Trump will show up at the feast like Banquo’s ghost.

Yes, Acquittal Is Vindication
Roger Kimball, American Greatness
The cause was the real threat to what anti-Trump partisans insist on calling “our democracy.” The real threat is the blind hatred of a man whose only real claim was on the allegiance of the voters, the still unhousebroken part of the population that entertains the quaint notion that they, not their credentialed masters in the media, on Wall Street, or the offices of political strategists, are the ones entrusted with picking the president. The 2020 election may well have cured them of that fond notion.

The French are absolutely right to say ‘no thanks’ to US woke-ism
Glenn H. Reynolds, New York Post
If you’re Macron or any sensible European observer, seeing a United States in which playing the national anthem or displaying the flag is deemed “offensive” and “problematic,” in which professors are suspended or threatened for quoting Supreme Court opinions verbatim when they contain unapproved language and which has seen months of urban riots tearing apart some of America’s biggest cities, how could you not say “no thanks”? If the French aren’t buying the focus on woke theory, who can blame them?

A deal for impeachment
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
I would support impeaching Mr. Trump and barring him from holding any future office. In exchange, I want every single Democrat in that violence-incitement montage be impeached, dumped out of Congress and barred from ever holding another public office for the rest of their lives. I would take that deal in a heartbeat. And so would 74 million others. After all, the whole reason we voted for Mr. Trump in the first place was to clean up the whole rotten sewer now standing in judgment in the U.S. Senate.

The seven (establishment) Republican senators who voted to convict Trump
Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner
The Senate voted to acquit former President Donald Trump on the "incitement of insurrection" impeachment charge, but seven Republicans joined with 50 Democrats in voting that he was guilty of the charge. The seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump: North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr; Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy; Maine Sen. Susan Collins; Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski; Utah Sen. Mitt Romney; Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse; Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey. Only Lisa Murkowski faces the voters in the next election.

The World Goes on While America Sleeps
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Our allies warn America that it is cannibalizing itself. Our enemies, such as the totalitarian Chinese, are delighted with our suicidal wokeness. The cost is not just the expense of cleaning up the billions of dollars of destruction from the summer riots, the thousands of memorials and statues destroyed and defaced, the hundreds of schools and buildings to be renamed. While we are busy devouring each other, China is smiling because once-feared American capitalists have become laughable Keystone Cops.

Stop Calling It an 'Insurrection'
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This kind of baloney is par for the course for the Democrats. They’re going to call you an “insurrectionist” today and a “racist” tomorrow and some other hogwash after that, so who cares what they say? But what does grate are the Republicans who go along with this bogus framing, and it’s sometimes unclear how much of the reason is just the usual GOPe pol stupidity and how much is the usual GOPe contempt. Nor was this incident some sort of “attack on Our Democracy where our freedom hung on by a thread.”

Preening Demagogues
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
When deprived of political power, Democrats extol unruly free speech. In power, they denounce it as unpatriotic and an incitement to violence. Future historians will surely note that this weaponized impeachment, revolving around a hysterical interpretation of free speech, came at the hands of card-carrying ACLU liberals, for whom power is always more important than principle. What the media pompously calls a defense of democracy is its exact opposite: a crass attempt to control the choices of the people.

'Creepy Joe' acts up again
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
For a team of people who have been in government and the bureaucracy for decades the ham-handed stumbling throughout these first few weeks has been shocking. We know Mr. Biden’s limitations, but the fact that a great deal of the administration’s efforts seems to be to hide those limitations should concern all of us. It’s not just unfair and hypocritical for the media to have been on top of Trump like a pack of rabid dogs, the choice to look away from the Biden administration is dangerous for the nation.

Reports of GOP death premature
Byron York, Washington Examiner
It is true that Democrats now control the White House, the House, and (barely) the Senate. Just four years ago, Republicans controlled all three. So no one can argue the GOP is doing well. Republicans nearly won last November. That was followed by some terrible months, with Trump's refusal to accept the election results, the January 6 Capitol riot, and now, the Trump impeachment trial. The GOP took a serious hit. But the current problems will pass, and the Republican Party can emerge stronger in the future.

Small-Business Struggles
Betsy McCaughey, The Epoch Times
While politicians are offering COVID-19 loans and grants to minority-owned and women-owned businesses, they could care less about helping white men during the lockdowns. Congress is drafting the next COVID-19 relief bill now. To foster national unity and treat all Americans equally, legislators need to provide small businesses help without regard to race or gender. Businesses that demonstrate the greatest need should get the help. Even businesses owned by that politically disfavored group, white men.
 

Moral Narcissism and the Show Trial of Donald Trump
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Moral narcissism fits today’s liberals and progressives to a “T,” living millionaire and billionaire lives that make hypocrisy the understatement of all time while disdaining the working class, as well as their needs and values to a degree that would embarrass Marie Antoinette. Trump undermined all that. He makes and made plenty of proclamations and certainly loves his private plane(s), but he’s all about results. So, it’s a “twofer” … or even a “threefer” … or is it a quinella when it comes to hating Trump?

With acquittal a foregone conclusion, the real drama is what Trump does next
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
At its heart, the second Trump impeachment trial is exactly like the first in that both aimed at voter suppression. Although the very definition of impeachment focuses on past acts while in office, the twin Trump impeachments have been about looking forward to the next election. The aim has been to knock him off the ballot if possible, but if not, dirty him up so he could be defeated. Having beaten him once, you might think the Dems would no longer be afraid of Trump. But they are, and they're desperate.

How is the Lincoln Project still in business?
Tim Young, Washington Times
The question now becomes, where do these self-serving gentlemen now turn since Mr. Trump lost the election? And the answer is simply, cancel culture. A successful grift has to move the goalposts on to the next big bogeymen in order to keep the money flowing in, and now that Biden has become President, the Lincoln Project has shifted to canceling businesses and corporations who support Senate R's. Luckily, it seems there are less and less rubes who are giving the Lincoln Project their hard-earned dollars.

Why the GOP Likely Won’t Run Trump in 2024
Kevin Kosar, The American Spectator
One can be sure that the GOP and its state arms will do all they can to tighten candidate entry to the party’s primaries to keep out gate-crashers. Already, some state GOP legislators have introduced bills to do just that, and various GOP politicians already are angling to be the next nominee. What is the path forward? Should the Republicans continue to vote for the candidates the GOP primaries give them every four years? Or should they fight for reforms to give themselves more electoral choices?

The Worst Budget in American History
Stephen Moore, CNS News
The solution to getting back to the rapid growth of the first three Trump years is to open up the state economies and speed up vaccine distributions. Those solutions cost almost nothing. Instead, Biden insists that the lesson he learned from the failed $830 billion "shovel ready" bill back in 2009 was, "We spent too little." So, he's doubling down. Don't worry about the children and the grandchildren, who will be saddled with the Chinese and Saudi debt repayment. So, "crazy" is what we are getting.

Biden and Krugman Are Misleading the Public about Minimum Wage
David Harasanyi, National Review
During his Super Bowl interview on CBS, President Biden declared that “all the economics” of a $15 minimum-wage hike were good. What he meant to say was, all the politics of a $15 minimum wage are good. The economics are highly debatable. Biden’s plan is to federalize minimum-wage laws. Many economists like the idea in theory, but many are still unsure, and just as many see the downside for employment. But Paul Krugman — and Biden — are merely trying to shut down debate. And they have plenty of help.

Of Rioters, Protesters & Patriots
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
In Western nations, protests and riots come largely from the left and rail against what is claimed to be indifference or resistance to the rights of minorities. And the natural tendency of the media is to sympathize with protesters. Again, all except the occupation of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. That one was different. That one got the sympathy of no one because its premise was that an elite-backed establishment stole the election. Such accusations against our elites are intolerable and immoral.

What Happened to Officer Brian Sicknick?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The Left will stop at nothing to destroy Donald Trump and vilify his supporters. No one should discount the idea that Democrats and the news media would intentionally promote a totally fabricated story or use as a prop an untimely death to satisfy that mission. And since Democrats included the “murder” of Brian Sicknick in its bill of particulars, the impeachment trial, ironically, offers the only opportunity for Trump and his defenders to clear the air—it’s an opportunity they should not waste.

The Democrats’ Impeachment Gambit Backfires
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
There will be considerable attention paid to the double standard on display by Democrats. The impeachment attempt will do nothing but put the spotlight on the threats of violence by Schumer, Rep. Maxine Waters, and a considerable group of high ranking Democrats — including Biden and Harris — who have endorsed the threat of violence against everyone from Trump himself to Trump admin. officials to Supreme Court justices to average Americans at the mercy of violence from Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Welcome to Washington, 'Notorious MTG'
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
For decades, innocent American taxpayers have suffered at the hands of a political elite who do not give a rat’s tail about the people for whom they supposedly work. For decades, they have demonstrated total contempt for us. Now rises a new breed of vulgar political leader, embodied by imperfect people like Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene. These new leaders care only what the people gathered at the local diner back home think. They don’t give a rat’s tail what people in Washington power circles think.

Cancel Culture Goes Down Rabbit Hole of Absurdity
Conrad Black, The Epoch Times
It is obvious that the overwhelming majority of Americans think that it is time to roll this nonsense back: there are only two sexes, and all adults should decide their own sexuality without coercion, and unless they are sociopathic, they should receive the respect of the entire society in which they live. There were ample reasons to support Trump and those who have done so—approximately 48 percent of the country—should not be subjected to any threat of deprogramming or reorientation or reeducation.

CBO offers minimum wage reality check
Editors, Washington Examiner
When so many people are already out of work, doubling the minimum wage would be a catastrophe. The CBO has provided some sobering estimates to support this view. When Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare, Democrats leaned heavily on CBO estimates to make the case against eliminating the law. Thus, they should not now get away with simply dismissing the implications of this dire warning. Doubling the federal minimum wage was always a bad idea. The CBO has now helped quantify how destructive it would be.

A Made-For-TV Impeachment Trial
David Catron, The American Spectator
The Democratic House managers will be forced to rely heavily on a montage of misleading videos edited for the convenience of the broadcast and cable networks. In the end, however, only one video matters — the video of President Trump’s January 6 speech. It clearly shows that he didn’t incite insurrection or commit any other high crime or misdemeanor. Citizen Trump will emerge from the latest made-for-television impeachment trial with another acquittal and his right to hold public office untrammeled.

This Impeachment Is A Disgraceful Sham
David Marcus, The Federalist
We have just spent four years with Democrats screaming outrage about the violations of norms. We were promised unity. And what do we have? A political pogrom against the ex-president that serves less purpose than a Hindu steakhouse. And you’re just supposed to take it. Those four years where Trump thought about and delivered what you wanted are over. It’s back to politics as usual. None of this will benefit you in any way. But that’s kind of the point. It’s not about you. So shut up and take it.

Our Animal Farm
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
George Orwell published Animal Farm in August 1945, in the closing weeks of the Pacific War. Orwell saw that the desire for power stamps out all ideological pretenses. It creates an untouchable ruling clique central to all totalitarian movements. Beware, he warns, of the powerful who claim to help the helpless. The revolutionary animals are now running the farm in a way that would be nightmarish even to Farmer Jones. They won. They are now one with—but also far, far worse than—what they rebelled against.

Overdosing On Wokeium
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
You can kick the habit. You can get the non-human primate organism – fight the scourge of speciesism! – off your back. Get clean. And take a look at those people you have been drugged up into believing are your enemy. Talk to that Trump guy you were told to hate. See how he thinks the same about big corporations, government lies, and stupid wars as you do. You’ll see they aren’t enemies. And, most dangerously of all for our garbage Establishment, you’ll see who is your real enemy is for the first time.

AOC Goes Fact-Check-Free on Instagram
Tim Graham, CNS News
At a time when left-wing venues have expressed a massive panic over misinformation on the Internet and the need for fact-checking, they don't seem to feel this way about anything spouted by AOC. It's akin to Christine Blasey Ford, who was hailed as a heroine and glamorized as a sexual assault victim without ever having to establish any facts on Brett Kavanaugh. The media's self-proclaimed gatekeepers sometimes let the gates swing wildly open when there are Republicans to be shamed as akin to sexual abusers.

New York Times ties itself in woke knots
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Social-justice activists stalk a newsroom that is racialized and radicalized, hunting for reasons to be offended. When they are, the ax falls.  The ax doesn’t always fall equally. Even as the Gray Lady abandons its standards of rigor and fairness in its coverage, it is obsessed with imposing progressive standards of thought and conduct on its employees. The quality of their reporting and writing increasingly takes a back seat to what they say, think or do, in or out of the office. One error can be fatal.

Why Is Identity Politics Destroying America?
Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator
The challenge for Americans, if we are to survive this destructive barrage of toxic identity-politics propaganda, is to see through the motives of those who seek to divide us. The vast majority of Americans do not spend their days stewing in resentment over “systemic” oppression. We are not a nation of victims, and neither are we a nation of oppressors. Turn off the cable news and the social-media noise, and spend more time with the real people you know and love. America has survived worse things than Joe Biden.

Ideological Imperialism Is Leading to a Bad End
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Where did we Americans acquire the right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations — be they autocracies, monarchies or republics — that do not threaten or attack us? Why are the internal affairs of Burma, a nation 10,000 miles from the U.S., the business of the United States? The post-Cold War world, where America stood in moral judgment of the democracy credentials of all other nations, and acted against those that did not sufficiently conform, is coming to an end. It could be sudden and soon.

Why I am one of many former MPD officers
Kim Voss, Minneapolis StarTribune
The city and police leadership in Minneapolis should have anticipated issues. When those in leadership disregard warning flags and stick their heads in the sand, it is the officers on the front line who pay the price. This seems also to have been the case in Washington DC. Trump is not responsible for what happened on Jan. 6. That was a planned, well-choreographed event that leadership knew about two weeks in advance. Did they learn nothing from Minneapolis and the failure of leadership? No support.

All Republican State Legislatures Should Follow Gov. DeSantis’s Lead to End Big Tech Domination
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
On Feb. 2, Florida governor Ron DeSantis gave a speech outlining a series of concrete proposals for his state that would have a serious impact on these companies. Governor DeSantis shouldn’t have to do it all by himself, brave as he is. So, states, do your thing. Don’t wait. This is your time! And above all, don’t be seduced by campaign contributions from Google, Facebook, et al. You will be betraying your voters—all the American people, actually, of both parties, whether they know it or not—if you do.

Why are Democrats so scared of Donald Trump when they just defeated him?
Glenn H. Reynolds, New York Post
The Democrats are acting nervous and insecure and lashing out at any perceived threat. There are two lessons here: One, Democrats aren’t nearly as secure as they pretend. Two, the mere existence of concerns about election integrity by a near-majority of Americans, however justified, is a disaster. A normal, secure, sensible Congress would be moving to make sure voting is trustworthy, installing safeguards to reassure those with doubts. But we don’t have a normal, secure, sensible Congress. That’s too bad.

When the White House can't handle the truth
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Dr. Walensky is CDC director and part of the White House COVID Response Team, and she was speaking on a White House teleconference when she said schools could reopen. But never mind -- she was speaking in her personal capacity. Now, the White House can say to the teachers unions: Don't worry. Dr. Walensky didn't really mean it. She was just speaking for herself. We're not going to cross you and announce that schools should open. You're still in charge. So much for the promised "truth and transparency."

John Brennan and the Aging Radicals
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
The illiberal liberal is a product of the willfulness of modern liberalism and its mania for power. The illiberal liberal pays homage to free speech pieties and universal rights, but once in control discards all that talk and calls for the suppression of liberty to further the common good. Liberals once decried the saying “error has no rights”; they now embody it. They won’t permit “misinformation” and so forth. It is uncanny how similar Silicon Valley’s decrees sound to the edicts of the old Soviet Union.

Conservatives should embrace home schooling to rescue America's next generation
Cal Thomas, Washington Times
The pandemic has given parents an opportunity to seize power they already possessed. Conservatives who want to preserve American traditions should embrace home schooling as a way to rescue the next generation and preserve the country. The late Barbara Bush said: “Your success as a family … our success as a nation … depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house.” She understood where real power comes from. Now, if more people will only seize that power and use it.

Will a Hard-Left Turn Lead to Pushback?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Social, cultural, economic and political extremism prompts reactions — and sometimes counterreactions. The left is assured that radical changes in voting laws and demography, the fears of COVID-19, the antifa-Black Lives Matter uprising and anger at Trump over the Jan. 6 Capitol riot have all permanently changed the electorate — and pushed it further leftward. If they are wrong, they have instead alienated and insulted the American people, and will reap the whirlwind in 2022 of the wind they are now sowing.

Trump Moves Out of the White House and into Their Heads
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The truth is that they want Trump. They need Trump. They cannot let him go. Trump truly is the greatest real estate magnate ever, since he owns all the space inside the Establishment’s bloated heads. To talk about Trump forever, they have to shred the principles they asserted, but never really bought into. After all, their alternative is much worse – people would be talking about them. So, Trump not only lives in their vacant skulls, but they invited him in, and locked him in, and will never let him escape.

RNC Finally Says It Will Remove Fake Media From GOP Primary Debates
John Nolte, Breitbart
In the age of streaming, other than a personal death wish, there is no reason to subject the GOP field to these ambushes. Stream the debate and pick tough moderators who will ask clarifying and intelligent questions… Brit Hume, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, people from Newsmax, from conservative talk radio, from conservative think tanks, online outlets… There are countless people on our side with the ability to host a tough but fair debate that helps our side. This is not rocket science.

Kristof: Crystal Clear on Curtailing Conservatives
Tim Graham, CNS News
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recently penned a column titled "A Letter to My Conservative Friends..." Let's be blunt: It's not a mistake that just as Biden becomes president, Kristof and other liberals are getting extremely aggressive about taking down conservative news networks. They're shaming any outlet that actually holds Biden accountable and taking liberals seriously even when their rhetorical excess is frightening. Democrats are plotting to curtail the opposition media. Take that, "friends."

Ex-Bush Officials Flee the Party of Reagan and Trump
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
This struggle has nothing to do with Donald Trump. It's the latest chapter in the eternal fight between conservatives and the GOP Establishment. All those headlined “Dozens of Former Bush Officials” who “Leave Republican Party, Calling It ‘Trump Cult’ ” are nothing more or less than the latest edition of Establishment Republicans who despise working Americans they see as so down-scale as to be absolutely unworthy of their party. In fact? There is a cult inside the GOP. It is the Cult of the GOP Establishment.

Ron DeSantis's Florida is the unsung success story of coronavirus
Editors, Washington Examiner
Florida is larger in population than New York, more disproportionately elderly, visited by more potentially infected tourists, and its population is more concentrated in urban areas. Yet somehow, in spite of all these disadvantages, Florida’s death rate from the coronavirus is roughly half that of the Empire State. (Before you leap to attribute this to the sunny weather, note that Arizona, Louisiana, and Mississippi are all in the top 10 for death rate, whereas frigid Vermont, Idaho, Maine, and Utah are near the bottom.)

Chuck Schumer Used Violent Rhetoric To Sic A Mob On Two Supreme Court Justices
Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist
By the standard adopted by the media and Dems for the second impeachment of Trump, Schumer bears responsibility for the protests and riots at the Supreme Court and in Senate office buildings, as well as the attempt to destroy the life and family and reputation of Kavanaugh. Within 23 minutes of Kavanaugh’s nomination, Schumer said, “I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have.” What to do with the many senators who brought the mobs into hearing rooms to destroy the confirmation process?

Hate for Donald Trump metastasizes to hating his supporters
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
Financial stability is the key component to our independence and dreams and was finally delivered not just to women but to all Americans, by … Mr. Trump. During his time this country saw the creation of an economy that was the best in history. Millions of women were lifted out of poverty, small businesses were created and thrived, wages increased, and the racial wage gap finally shrank to its smallest ever. More women, like all Americans, were enjoying financial prosperity. The American dream was back.

Biden Wants to Kill 80 Percent of America’s Energy
Stephen Moore, CNS News
How much of our energy needs today are met with fossil fuels? Perhaps over the next several decades, wind and solar power will be cheap enough to meet most of our energy needs. But are we to starve ourselves of energy in the meantime? Are Americans willing to pay $4 or $5 a gallon to fill up the tank with Saudi oil or Russian gas? Wouldn’t it be smarter, safer and, yes, more virtuous to get the energy we need from Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota, or even Alberta, Canada, than from countries that hate us?

Happy Days Are Here Again—for Beijing and Moscow
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
I wonder how soon the United States will be buying oil from China and Russia. Xi and Putin must find this all quite amusing, especially since our new administration is now considering rejoining that most reactionary of all United Nations dumb shows, the U.N. Human Rights Council, an organization that is dominated by dictatorial regimes and could have been invented by Orwell. But why should that be surprising? Many advocate reprogramming Trump supporters. Nothing could be more communist Chinese than that!

Who Are the True 'Domestic Terrorists'?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Following the Capitol riot the left seized upon and exploited it to paint the right as America's safe harbor for "domestic terrorism." The truth: The vast majority of criminals who rob, rape, shoot and kill Americans in the tens of thousands each year, and the people who did almost all of the rioting, looting, arson and assaults on cops never wore MAGA hats. The enemy is always to be found on the right. And because reality contradicts this central tenet of liberal ideology, it cannot ever be conceded.

The For the People Act and ‘Democracy Reform’
David Catron, The American Spectator
The general gist of HR 1 is clear: Reforming democracy requires stripping the states of their constitutionally mandated role in determining the “Times, Places and Manner of holding elections,” ignoring the warnings of senior statesmen about the dangers of mail-in voting, and restricting the First Amendment rights of public interest groups and individuals. Topped off with taxpayer-funded candidates… To think, Democrats want to give us democracy reform despite our thoughtless failure to ask for it.
