Newsletter Peddlers Offended By Real Journalism Quit
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg now end their careers at Fox as washed-up has-beens, slinking off into a political Siberia where their only future relevance will be to serve as a cautionary tale on how to squander what little talent or connections one ever had to take a parting shot at a far more influential rival while giving cover to an abusive regime hellbent on destroying the audience that helped elevate them to fame. Good riddance.

’Tis the (Mad) Season in Waukesha
Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator
Aspiring gangsta rapper? Check. Numerous paternity cases? Check. Black Lives Matter seeks to defund the police, eliminate cash bail for most offenses, and de-incarcerate criminals. Alleged hit-and-run murderer Darrell Brooks Jr., free on a pittance bail from allegedly running over his ex despite outstanding warrants, a recent firearms charge, and a lengthy criminal record, shows the effectiveness of that movement in achieving its goals.

Democrats Have a Waukesha Problem
Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
Data from the October WSJ/NBC poll found that voters now trust Republicans over Democrats to handle crime by a 22-point margin. Add voter discontent over inflation and Covid, then re-evaluate some of those crucial 2022 swing state races. In Wisconsin a recent Marquette poll found that 69% of registered voters believe crime is rising nationally. Only 19% of independents approve of Mr. Biden, and 23% would vote to re-elect Governor Evers.

Marjorie Taylor Greene rips Kevin McCarthy for 'failure of our leadership'
Luke Gentile, Washington Examiner
McCarthy is responsible for the "failure of our leadership," according to Greene. "We know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn't have the full support to be speaker," she said. "He doesn't have the votes that are there." "There's many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats."

Leftists Seethe at Rittenhouse's Tucker Carlson 'Victory Lap'
Tim Graham, CNS News
BLM's postverdict statement: "It was a set up from the beginning. The police, the judge, the court, mainstream media, and every single system involved all wrapped their arms around Kyle Rittenhouse from the very beginning." Anyone claiming the "mainstream media" was engaged in a long hug with Rittenhouse should be given a breathalyzer test. Apparently, those Marxist BLM leaders were too busy counting millions to watch any news reports.

Fire Fauci to Brighten a Black Black Friday
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Now more than ever, with this new COVID strain emerging, we need a rational, not a wildly self-interested and narcissistic, person at the helm of our response. And if you need any more convincing, if you’re still a Fauci devotee with a religious belief in the mRNA vaccines—looked upon with great suspicion by their own inventor, Dr. Robert Malone—be aware that all four “Nu” (Omicron) variant patients from Botswana were vaccinated for COVID-19.

Select Committee Covering Up Police Brutality on January 6
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Congressional Republicans, at least the handful who care about really getting to the truth about January 6, have no legislative power for now. But they must raise public awareness related to police brutality against Trump supporters on Capitol grounds on January 6. The American people, and Boyland’s family, deserve the truth—not more stonewalling and cover-ups by House Democrats, the D.C. coroner, and the D.C.-based police departments.

Addition by Subtraction at Fox News
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Most people who used to watch Goldberg and Hayes don’t care what they say anymore. And if they’re gone from Fox News, that means somebody more relevant might replace them. Let’s hope that somebody is less “acceptable” and more willing to accurately assess the state of America brought on by two decades of weak-sauce conservatism’s constant retreating. Carlson tweeted: "The Documentary series that drove Jonah Goldberg to an impotent rage."

How many times must Facebook be caught censoring the truth?
Rachel Bovard, New York Post
Justice Louis Brandeis hit upon robust speech as its own corrective measure. “If there be time to expose through discussion, the falsehoods and fallacies,” he wrote, “the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.” Facebook, it seems, has lost the plot. Absent policy measures to break Facebook’s scale, limit the platform’s ideological moderation or legal changes which give users more accountability, it is unlikely to get it back.

Playing With Fire on Russia's Borders
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
A NATO alliance built around Article V — the declaration that a Russian attack on any one of 30 nations will be regarded as an attack on the United States and answered by military action by the U.S. — is an anachronistic pledge that belongs to a dead era. Given the disastrous record of the neocon wars of the 21st century, the U.S., facing every new crisis, ought to ask itself before acting: Why is this quarrel any of our business?

Blue-collar Biden criticized for 'tone-deaf' Nantucket Thanksgiving visit
Naomi Lim, Washington Examiner
The Bidens have long celebrated Thanksgiving on Nantucket island off of Cape Cod. Biden's Thanksgiving plans personify a "Marie Antoinette attitude," according to presidential historian and Ronald Reagan biographer Craig Shirley, as people struggle amid a pandemic-strained economy with record-high inflation. "Reagan was always disparaged for spending Thanksgiving at the ranch in California, but Biden’s tone-deafness is alarming," Shirley said.

Senator Marsha Blackburn Urges Complete Boycott of 2022 Beijing Olympics
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Senators Marsha Blackburn and Tom Cotton urged the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) to boycott the 2022 Beijing Olympics. “With the Olympics being three months away, it is imperative that the USOPC take action and boycott the Beijing Olympics. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is a country plagued with violent suppression of free speech, state-sponsored oppression, and other human rights abuses,” the two wrote in the letter.

Build Back Badly
David Catron, The American Spectator
No amount of happy talk from the White House or congressional Democrats will mollify voters. It is blindingly obvious to the majority of Americans that the economy is in disarray and that this sad state of affairs is a direct result of ill-conceived policies concocted by the Biden administration and his congressional accomplices. BBB is just another example of their incompetence, more proof that the Democratic Party is unfit to govern.

The New Blue Confederacy
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The people are voting with their U-Hauls. We think the Old South lost the Civil War—but did it in the end? That is, did the Union win the short-term battle to abolish slavery and save the Union, but lose the long-term war of ideas and values by adopting the very ethos of the long-defeated—even as vanquished Southerners reformed and gradually embraced the visions of the victors that the Northerners themselves would eventually reject?

Kyle Rittenhouse and the Red-Pilling of America
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
You know who saved Kyle, and us? It was normal people who got woke to the lie, the jurors. And Americans all over are doing their job, which the left hates. They are confronting school boards. They are voting for patriots. They are organizing. They are pushing back. Right now, the polling for the Democrats is positively gruesome, like that one guy’s bicep. It’s because people are getting activated. They are not sitting on the bench.

The fall of Black Lives Matter
Byron York, Washington Examiner
BLM has always been a partisan movement. Even in 2020, Republican support never rose above 9%, while Democratic opposition never rose above 3%. In 2020, independent support hit a peak of 51%, now down to 37%. What does it mean? Black Lives Matter remains a potent force in Dem politics. Anything that has 85% support within a political party is going to be an influence. The worry for Democrats is BLM's falling support among independents.

Joy Reid and White Male Tears
Tim Graham, CNS News
MSNBC host Joy Reid is naturally the one most expected to lecture on the evils of whiteness, especially white maleness. The common thread is the left's cynical accusation that these incidents of white male crying or choking up on television were insincerely staged for personal gain or political effect. What Reid was cynically offering was an early basket of sour grapes that the left failed to destroy either Kavanaugh or Rittenhouse.

The Weimar Republic Comes to Nordstroms
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
In less than a year, the incompetent, ideologically-driven (or is it obsessed) Joe Biden administration has done something few would have thought possible. They have made the United States of America almost unlivable. Too many of us accept it, although so many of us know what Weimar led to, the rise of the National Socialist Party. We pretend that it cannot happen here, yet there are auguries everywhere. The American left has no shame.

 

Terror in the Capitol Tunnel
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Future court filings, interviews, and security footage will reveal to the public how law enforcement, beginning at around 1 p.m. that day, attacked and beat American citizens who dared to protest the election of Joe Biden. Further, it will become clear that Joe Biden’s DOJ, with compliance by D.C. Court judges, are keeping several eyewitnesses to the terror in the tunnel behind bars awaiting trials delayed until the middle of 2022.

Who’s Surprised That Kamala Harris Is Toxic?
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Team Harris can call Biden an unreconstructed racist, and it’ll be believable. They can also dish on his mental fitness, and that’ll be believable as well. And Team Biden can prey on Harris’ office tyranny and lack of skill. That’ll also be true. We’re for full disclosure to the lot. In the name of transparency and an informed public, that is. It’s like Henry Kissinger said of the Iran-Iraq War: can they both lose? Yes they can.

Kyle Rittenhouse, Both Right and Righteous
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
The prosecution has described Rittenhouse as an "active shooter," calling to mind the Las Vegas gunman who massacred dozens of people. But a 17-year-old running from a mob and shooting while sitting on the ground and being attacked scarcely fits the description of an "active shooter." Kyle Rittenhouse used his rifle to protect someone else's property and his own life. He was both righteous and in the right. They were in the wrong.

Trump congratulates Kyle Rittenhouse on acquittal
Mica Soellner, Washington Times
Mr. Trump cited that the 18-year-old who was on trial for killing two unarmed men and shooting an armed man was engaging in self-defense. “Congratulations Kyle Rittenhouse for being found INNOCENT of all charges,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “It’s called being found NOT GUILTY - And by the way, if that’s not self-defense, nothing is!” Biden said he was “angry and concerned” over the verdict, but defended the criminal justice system.

Rittenhouse Free, but Where Can the ‘White Supremacist’ Go in Race-Obsessed America?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Unfortunately, as we know, there may be no place for the acquitted teen Kyle Rittenhouse to go in today’s world. These people are not spewing their outrage alone. It’s all over the internet and television. This trial has been more lied about than… than… well, no good analogy comes to mind because just about everything is lied about these days. If racism were a God, the Democrats would pray to it and the media would write its Bible.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Investigating Meta/Facebook Marketing Practices Related to Minors
Grant Holcomb, The Star News Network
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) announced last week she is launching an investigation against Meta, the company previously known as Facebook before its recent rebrand. “Working with a group [seven] of attorneys general from across the country to investigate how Facebook/Meta is targeting youth and what strategies this Big Tech giant is using to entice children to lengthen engagement on its platforms,” Ashley Moody tweeted.

 

Biden’s Moribund Vaccine Mandate
David Catron, The American Spectator
Joe Biden will inevitably ask the Supreme Court to review the 5th Circuit's decision to halt its vaccine mandate. No president possesses the authority to order private citizens to get vaccinated or command private businesses to enforce a vaccine mandate. Moreover, when Congress created OSHA, it didn’t authorize the agency to enforce anything resembling such an edict. Thus, the mandate will be DOA when it hits the SCOTUS docket.

Can the FBI Be Salvaged?
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The DC-based FBI has lost all credibility as a disinterested investigatory agency. Since 2015, it has been constantly in the news—and mostly in a negative and constitutionally disturbing light. For its own moral and practical survival, the FBI should be given one last chance at redemption by moving to the nation’s heartland—perhaps Kansas—far away from the political and media tentacles that have so deeply squeezed and corrupted it.

When Will the New York Times and the Washington Post Return Their 2018 Pulitzers?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
No paper should ever be considered the “newspaper of record”. That’s no way to run a democracy, a democratic republic or a constitutional republic. It more resembles a subtler version of Pravda and Izvestia of the Soviet era. And yet the networks and many other outlets, including the supposedly all-powerful social media, still trot along behind the Times like seven dwarfs behind Snow White. The 2018 Pulitzer Prizes now look ludicrous.

Virginia State Rep. Amanda Chase Announces Campaign for Congress
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
State Senator Amanda Chase announced her candidacy for Virginia’s Seventh U.S. House District. “We need a specific type of demographic to beat Abigail Spanberger. I am a suburban mom from Chesterfield, and that determines who wins in the Seventh District,” Chase said on the John Fredericks Show. “I know the people of the seventh. I’ve worked for all the winning congressmen. It was my job to get them reelected. And so I know how to do it.”

Joe Biden’s Orwellian Coronavirus Regime
Sen. Rand Paul, National Review
In Animal Farm, Squealer, the propagandist for the corrupt regime, states that the leader would only be too happy to let others make decisions, “but sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, and then where should we be?” So what is the result when your government claims a monopoly on wisdom? In Joe Biden’s Orwellian regime, restricting liberty may very well mean surrendering the security of our communities and our southern border.

The most uncertain presidential picture ever
Byron York, Washington Examiner
The bottom line is that the Democrats' presidential prospects are in virtually unprecedented flux because of the president's age. But the Republicans' presidential prospects are in virtually unprecedented flux, too, for a different set of reasons. Republicans find themselves in a situation (presidents serving two non-consecutive terms) that has happened only once in nearly 250 years. Who knows how it will turn out? Time will tell.

The Real Crime in Kenosha
Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator
The media is angry about the Rittenhouse trial, but not for reasons you might think. They had done their best to paint Kyle Rittenhouse as a racist and a white-supremacist. The trial, though, has revealed the truth: Kyle shot three very white, very demented criminals. He was being attacked each time he shot. The people attacking him do not seem very high-minded and equity-seeking. These look to be psychos raving with bloodlust.

Retract Every Russian Collusion Story and Fire Everyone Who Wrote Them
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
In any other honorable profession, mass firings, not faux “reckonings,” would empty newsrooms. Collusion between Donald Trump and the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the 2016 election never happened—but every news organization, big and small, contributed to spreading this lie. It’s breathtaking malfeasance on a scale unrivaled in American history. The media should not be permitted to proceed with business as usual. Fire them all.

Illegal Immigrants Would Get $10.5 Billion From Reconciliation Bill
Steven Camarota, Real Clear Politics
The budget reconciliation package pushed by Democrats creates a new expanded child tax credit (CTC) that would pay illegal immigrants some $10.5 billion next year. All immigrants with children are eligible, regardless of how they got here and whether their children are U.S.-born. This includes the roughly 600,000 unaccompanied minors and persons in family units stopped at the border in FY2021 and released into the country pending a hearing.

New Iowa GOP Poll Shows Trump 4-to-1 Favorite Over DeSantis
Neil W. McCabe, The Star News Network
A new poll shows that President Donald J. Trump is the overwhelming choice of Iowa Republicans with support from 56 percent of respondents compared to 12 percent supporting Florida Ronald D. DeSantis in the poll conducted November 3 through November 5, and November 8 and 12, by Neighborhood Research and Media. Following DeSantis were Gov. Kristi Noem, 2.1 percent; Sen. Tom Cotton and former Vice President Michael R. Pence, 1.6 percent.

Another Democrat Joins the Republican Party
Katie Pavlich, Townhall
Texas House Dem Ryan Guillen announced he is joining the GOP. "Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington, D.C., are not our values, not the values of most Texans," Guillen announced. "The ideology of defunding the police, of destroying the oil and gas industry and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas."

J. Christian Adams: It's Time to Start Taking Names
J. Christian Adams, PJ Media
Cancel culture isn’t just about Ann Coulter being shouted down anymore. It has developed into something more insidious, less obvious. It works now at the margins to throttle ideas. It steals back from conservative voices the efficiencies of the modern information age. It involves partnerships with government agencies and private tech giants. It enjoys libertarians perversely protecting the totalitarian march through institutions.

 

Are Democrats Looking to the Lifeboats?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Is this Biden likely to enter the history books alongside FDR? The returns from Virginia and New Jersey on Election Day seem to confirm what ABC and the Post found in their poll: A tidal wave may be coming, and if it does not crest and break before November 2022, it will swamp Nancy Pelosi's House and Chuck Schumer's Senate, and it will sink Joe Biden's White House. That's the climate change Democrats ought to be worrying about.

The Biden White House dumpster fire
Byron York, Washington Examiner
To put it mildly, it is not good if you are a new president and people in your own party are speculating that you can't make it past one term and your VP isn't strong enough to succeed you. Some of Biden's problems are structural — they won't get better even if Congress passes this or that bill. Biden's age, of course, was not a secret during the 2020 campaign. Voters knew what they were getting. And now they're getting it.

It Isn’t the Elections, It’s the Consequences
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
What’s important isn’t that we elect a bunch of Republicans to Congress and to state legislatures for the next couple of years. What’s far more important is that those Republicans we elect be made to understand they’re being elected to move the damn ball forward. No more failure theater, and no more cowering in the face of nasty leftists like AFT pres Randi Weingarten making threats about beating them in the next election.

A Poem of Persecution and Faith by a January 6 Trespasser (Boyd Camper)
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
"What does this all have to do with D.C.? Everything, it’s what matters and empowers me. We are but that which we create, masters of our destiny, love or hate. Choose wisely, we make the choices, guided inside by so many voices. It’s those we listen to the most that win, they’re the guiding forces in the end. So let the heart guide, not the eyes, for they are deceived, believe all the lies..." Camper expects to report to jail in January.

House Republicans Nominate Gilbert to be Speaker, Both Caucuses Elect Leadership
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
The Virginia House Republican Caucus unanimously nominated current Minority Leader Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) for Speaker of the House. They also elected Delegate Terry Kilgore (R-Scott) to be majority leader in the 2022 session, the result of a compromise between the two former rivals for House minority leader. Although Republicans are expected to hold a 52-48 majority, two House Dems (who lost by 1< %) could ask for recounts.

Georgia needs unifier David Purdue for governor
Newt Gingrich, Washington Times
Sadly, Mr. Kemp’s decision to prolong and intensify his fight with the most popular leader in the Georgia GOP (Trump) has virtually guaranteed that a Kemp nomination will lead to a Ms. Abrams governorship – and all the fighting and alienation that kind of radical administration would bring with it. Mr. Perdue is the one candidate who can defeat Stacey Abrams and help Georgia follow a similar path to Virginia's Glenn Youngkin.

 

Why The Left Always Projects
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
When wokeness trickles down, it is seen as nonsensical. Those without privilege see real wokeness is racist, segregationist, careerist, and narcissistic—the guilty accusing the innocent of their own perceived guilt. The woke blame the steerage class below them for their own perceived sins of privilege—slurs and smears levelled all the more toxically because their promulgators have always known them firsthand as their own.

Biden Targets the Religious Freedom of Federal Contractors
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Trump served as a Constantine for the religious, giving them real protection against coercive secularists. But now these woke commissars are back in charge, saying that they have a mandate to protect Americans. No doubt this hubris is contributing to Biden’s unpopularity. In the name of eliminating discrimination, he is creating worse forms of it, aimed at the very God-fearing Americans for whom the Constitution was written.

GOP Leaders Betray Their Voters Over Murkowski
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Many people wonder why Republicans lose when they are able to outdraw Democrats on the ground, and not just at Trump rallies, in large numbers. Perhaps it is that some of them, the leadership in particular, secretly want to lose—or to win only when their candidates are part of the Deep State/Uniparty. That would appear to apply to Sen. Rick Scott who should be removed from his position. As for Murkowski, she’s probably toast.

Former Trump Staffer John Gibbs Launches Primary Challenge Against Rep. Peter Meijer
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Former Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) official John Gibbs launched a GOP primary challenge against incumbent Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer. According to his campaign website, Gibbs, who is a Michigan native, will campaign on a host of key issues: border security, the economy, and education. Meijer, who voted to impeach Trump in January, has faced backlash from the former president and members of his own party.

Time to Declare Victory Over COVID
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Free the kids from the tyranny of COVID fanatic schools. Free citizens from the tyranny of vaccine fascists who think choice means killing babies but not declining shots. Free everyone from stupid rules delivering only mild transitory pleasure to bossy people unable to obtain pleasure through dignified pursuits. It’s time to live again, and just because you have no life to return to doesn’t mean I’m not going to live mine.

New Jersey Democracy Died in Darkness?
Tim Graham, CNS News
If Sen. Stephen Sweeney the powerful Democrat had won easily, they would file no story complaining about the decimated media in south Jersey. They would have never found an objectionable tweet from obscure Durr. But with this lament, they have told us all they can't imagine voters making a decision without heavy influence from the media, and the decision to dump a powerful Democrat is somehow a failure of local journalism.

J6 Committee Misleading Witnesses About Republican Staff Presence
Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist
January 6 Select Committee staff have been falsely telling witnesses that Republican staff will be present for interviews, according to sources. In fact, not a single Republican-appointed member of Congress nor a single staff member representing the Republican conference is part of the controversial committee. The misrepresentation to witnesses is key because the absence of any ranking member, the committee violates House rules.

‘Unprecedented’ Capitol Protest Sets New Precedents
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The news media flaunts the "unprecedented" word with frequency, historical context and common sense be damned. The Constitution, along with every foundational precedent, can be subverted on the grounds that January 6 was “unprecedented.” Joe Biden, the Justice Department, and Beltway judges are not simply justified in breaking the rules, they are obligated to do so. And that, unlike January 6, would be truly “unprecedented.”

The White Supremacy Hoax
David Catron, The American Spectator
Worried about losing minority votes, Democrats and their allies in the media are falling back on tired scare tactics involving the threat of white supremacy. But the claim that there are hordes of white supremacists attempting to bring down the republic is a nutty conspiracy theory. To further claim that disgruntled Trump voters are at the bottom of this plot is patently ridiculous. Most are smart enough to see it’s a hoax.

Vaccine Update: Why ‘The Party of Science’ Disdains Natural Immunity
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
That moment a few months back when Fauci was asked about the possible superiority of natural immunity and pretended not to have thought about it was a lie as dangerous as his many prevarications about his gain-of-function research collusion with China, possibly greater. For young people in particular, the risks of side effects (myocarditis, questions about future procreation) from the vaccines dwarf the risks from COVID itself.

Is Joe Biden the second coming of Herbert Hoover?
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Biden thinks he's like FDR, but the string of failures and growing doubts about his ability suggest a different presidential role model: Herbert Hoover. The GOP incumbent in 1932, Hoover was widely admired for his relief work in Europe after World War I but proved to be no match for the onslaught of the Great Depression. As the economy collapsed, voters rejected him in a landslide, handing Roosevelt victory in 42 of the 48 states.

US and China: Collision or Cooperation?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
While the Chinese navy is not today a match for the U.S. Navy with its carrier battle groups, China's navy and army are larger than ours, the largest in the world, and in any conflict would be fighting for and from their own country, not someone else's. If there is a great war between China and the United States, it will likely be because of the Taiwan Strait. Avoiding war should be the first order of business of both sides.

 

History Will Grind Out the Truth
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Historians of public health will unravel the full costs of locking down most of America in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. What are now near-taboo topics—the vigorous natural immunity offered from prior infection, and the terrible damage done by the quarantines—earn cancel culture damnation, employment suspension, and media calumny. But soon they likely will become matter-of-factly accepted as truth. The same for January 6.

Yuri Bezmenov’s Marxist Crisis Is Near
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Fight back. Now is the time to exact a price from these people for what they’ve already done and what they plan to do. And that price had better be steep. Now is the time to speak loudly — and rudely. It’s the time for patriotic and like-minded Americans, who know who we are and the society and values we came from, to stand up and say, “Hell, no.” Pushback at the ballot box is nowhere near sufficient. We need mass non-compliance.

Who is Saule Omarova, Biden’s pick for a key banking post?
Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner
Opposition to Biden’s pick for a key banking regulatory post is mounting thanks to scrutiny of her radical view of economics. Saule Omarova's nomination to become comptroller of the currency drew even more focus when a clip of controversial comments she made in February at a virtual event made the rounds on social media, in which she said of oil, coal and gas companies, "We want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change."

Americans Are Waking Up To The Democrat’s Race Hustle
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The race crap no longer resonates the way it once did. Terry McAuliffe claimed parents mad at the commie cesspool the schools are dunking their kids into were being summoned by Glenn Youngkin’s racist dog whistling. But the voters did not buy it. The shaming and moral arm-twisting failed because people saw it for the cynical ploy it is. Rural and other Americans did not vote on race. They voted GOP because the Democrats suck.

When Brian Stelter Can't Handle the Truth
Tim Graham, CNS News
Liberals argue Republican candidates can sound more reasonable because they have a media "machine" that provides all the hardcore base-stoking rhetoric. Stelter said it "makes a lot of sense" to think of Fox and Newsmax as "base turnout operations." Stelter pretends CNN's hardcore base-stoking rhetoric from Jim Acosta and Co. doesn't allow the Democrats to run milder campaigns. Who sounds "hallucinogenic" on the media landscape?

Spotsylvania County School Board Passes Motion to Remove Sexually Explicit Material from Libraries
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
The Spotsylvania County (Virginia) School Board voted six to zero, with one member absent, to remove “sexually explicit” material from school libraries. The motion as passed by the board was to start removal of the sexually explicit books as soon as Tuesday, the day after the meeting, and it requires a report to the board about the removed books. School-board-level education policy is expected to be a significant issue in 2022.

 

Biden Defies Federal Appeals Court on Vaccine Mandate
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
It would have been inconceivable to the Founding Fathers that the executive branch could concoct out of thin air a vaccine mandate and coerce businesses to enforce it or face fines. Biden’s fiat represents the antithesis of that founding vision. Presumably, the case over his mandate will end up before the Supreme Court. The outcome of the case will determine whether we live under a limited federal government or a limitless one.

Biden Won’t Be Able to Spin His Way out of Inflation Crisis
Philip Klein, National Review
People will notice when the price of groceries goes up, when they have to pay more at the pump, and when it’s costing significantly more to heat their homes. They’ll notice the supply disruptions when they cannot find what they are used to finding. There is no hiding this problem and it is not going away soon. Meanwhile, Democrats are racing to pass trillions of dollars of more spending that will only make the problem worse.

There They Go Again With the 'Tax the Rich' Ruse
Stephen Moore, CNS News
The Alternative Minimum Tax in the late 1960s was aimed at a handful of multimillionaires. However, it wasn't long before this tax gadget was squeezing millions of people. Biden promises he will never tax anyone making less than $400,000. Really? Then why does he want to audit the transaction of every person with $10,000 or more in their bank accounts? It turns out that you may not think of yourself as rich. But Washington does.

Historic wins in Virginia illuminate growing diversity in Republican ranks
Mica Soellner and S.A. Miller, Washington Times
The historic election wins by Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears and Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares in Virginia showcased the increasing diversity among Republicans and the party’s success in recruiting women and minority candidates to deliver a conservative message of freedom and opportunity. Ms. Sears is the first Black woman elected statewide in Virginia and Mr. Miyares is the first Hispanic to win statewide in the commonwealth.

Katie Britt tied with Trump-endorsed Mo Brooks in Alabama Senate primary: Poll
David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner
Rep. Mo Brooks has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, who is incredibly popular in Alabama. But Britt, former chief of staff to retiring Sen. Richard Shelby, received the support of 31% of likely Republican primary voters, compared to the 30% garnered by Brooks. The survey suggests that at the very least, Britt has made the Senate primary competitive despite the boost Brooks received from Donald Trump’s endorsement.

More Than 70 Georgia Counties Can’t Produce Original 2020 Election Ballot Images, Says Election Integrity Group
Chris Butler, The Star News Network
Exactly 74 Georgia counties are unable to produce all the original ballot images from the November 2020 election. VoterGA co-founder Garland Favorito said. The group, according to its website, is a nonprofit whose members said it wants to restore election integrity to the Peach State. Representatives from 56 counties, VoterGA members went on to say, admitted that most or all automatic images for tabulating results were destroyed.

 

Where Are the Neon-Hatted Proud Boys?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
While Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordean, and two other Proud Boys have been incarcerated since last spring, denied bail despite having no criminal record and being charged with only nonviolent offenses, none of the neon-hatted “Proud Boys” has been arrested or charged. Of the nearly 1,500 photos posted on the FBIs most wanted list for January 6, not one suspect is wearing an orange neon cap. So, what happened to these glow worms?

Flaw and Disorder
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
We’re not in a political war. We aren’t even in a cultural war. Both are happening, but they’re symptoms of what’s really gone wrong. We’re in a spiritual war. The Judeo-Christian value system which built Western civilization and perfected us is under attack by fanatics of a woke radical communist atheism. Those fanatics are hard at work destroying everything you know about America, and you can see their work everywhere.

Did Glasgow Deliver 'Blah, Blah, Blah'?

Glasgow is destined to fail because national interests invariably triumph over globalism. At root, almost every globalist and transnational institution and summit has a common feature: the endless transfer of wealth from the First World oppressors to their alleged Third World victims. These gatherings are to determine how much in reparations the latter can extort from a conscience-stricken West. Will the GOP reject the shakedown?

Ted Cruz: Texas secession in play if Democrats ‘fundamentally destroy’ U.S.
Victor Morton, Washington Times
The Texas Republican said that he doesn’t favor secession now, but cautioned that he could imagine circumstances changing if Democrats in Washington get their way. “If the Democrats end the filibuster, if they fundamentally destroy the country, if they pack the Supreme Court, if they make D.C. a state, if they federalize elections, if they massively expand voter fraud, there may come a point where it’s hopeless,” Mr. Cruz said.

‘Yalla Brandon!’: How the Jewish Vote May (Finally) Be Changing
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
According to a flash poll from the American Jewish Congress, 37 percent of Jews voted for Glenn Youngkin. That constitutes a roughly ten percent gain for Republicans in the Jewish vote, a significant number in this time of close elections and likely instrumental in pushing Youngkin over the line in that narrow contest. Worth thinking about is just how few people of any religion or ethnicity ever change their voting or views.

Tea Party Patriots Action to Launch Georgia Election Integrity Tour
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) on Monday announced an election integrity tour that will take place throughout Georgia. The tour, which will make stops in eighteen different cities over a 10-day period, begins in Woodstock on Wednesday. During events, individuals will discuss election integrity issues and recruit Georgians for election integrity task forces. TPPA is partnering with multiple organizations to build a coalition.

Trickle-Down Bidenism
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The electoral anger in New Jersey and Virginia, but also throughout the country, reflects not just the chaos of the Joe Biden administration's first year, but the way in which the nearly 10 months of disasters have so rapidly damaged millions of American lives. The Biden team’s smug responses to the messes they made remind us that socialists care little for the millions of broken eggs necessary to cook a vast toxic omelet.

The Kamikaze Party
David Catron, The American Spectator
Claims made by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and many more made by other Democrats, are about an increasingly extremist party whose leaders refuse to face reality and pursue policies that address real problems facing the country. They would rather commit political suicide than foreswear leftist dogma. Tuesday’s election results suggest that the voters are inclined to accommodate the Democrats in their desire to become the Kamikaze Party.

No voter fraud? How about 1,334 cases, 1,147 convictions
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund write an emotionless history of voter fraud, filled with recent examples, especially in the 2020 election, and based on the Heritage Foundation’s election fraud database. In Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote , the duo with three decades of voting study between them highlighted the 1,334 cases of fraud and 1,147 criminal convictions Heritage has collected dating to 1982.

Voters Are Revolting Against ‘Woke’ Education
John Fund, National Review
Destroying the idea of meritocracy — a concept that is front and center in everyone’s concept of how the American dream can better people’s lives and ensure progress — are part of an intellectual toxic-waste dump that could undermine the ideals that are the essence of America. Through educating ourselves, we can make sense of both the threat of woke educational theory and the voter revolt against it that is animating our politics.

Greetings from Feudal California
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The people who are eager to whine about all the petty annoyances that come with living here outside the castle walls are also the first to mail in their ballots marked for every pinko Democrat the union bosses command them to vote for. We had a chance to make a difference in September. We could have fired Governor Hairstyle and put in Larry Elder and tried something new. California used to be the state where the future happened.

The Democrats Lose, Claim They Have No Media Support
Tim Graham, CNS News
When Democrats lose, they say crazy things. The night after last week's 2021 election results, I was pleased to be invited to join the Paley Center's Media Impact panel on Zoom to discuss media coverage of the Biden White House. We began with the notion that no politician ever thinks the press is fair to them. This is true, but largely meaningless. Republicans expect aggressive unfairness. Democrats expect cheerful compliance.

 

Ten Months Later
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
More than 650 Americans have been rounded up and arrested for minor crimes but the premier law enforcement agency in the land can’t find a guy who planted two bombs walking around Capitol Hill in plain sight? There is no such thing as coincidence when it comes to anything out of the Democratic Party’s fiefdom of Washington, D.C. It’s clear that the pipe bomb tale was just another stunt to fuel panic and outrage about January 6.

Virginia Secedes From Biden's Party
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
The message to the Democratic Party Virginia sent was this: "You can indulge the crazies in your party, but if the American people come to believe you share their ideas and intend to implement them, we are going to relieve you of control of Congress in 2022 and of the White House in 2024. Rely upon it." Joe Biden, who is today 10 points down from where he began his presidency, is facing some seemingly insurmountable problems.

A Post-Virginia Conversation With the Democrats
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
So let’s be honest here. That bump on your head? There are a lot more where that came from. We’d like you to cut it out. Straighten up and fly right. And no, that doesn’t mean more cowbell. Or more Eric Swalwell. We already told you no. It’s really up to you. You pushed your luck and you’ve been told. Be nice, or you won’t like what’s coming. But hey, we’re glad we had this talk. Get well soon, we guess. The American people.

After Being Humiliated In VA, Democrats Tell the Voters to Kiss-Off
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Republicans need to move past the old GOP “Guns and capital gains cuts” agenda to one of addressing the practical problems our voters (and their voters!) are talking about – inflation, indoctrination, and international humiliation. In the meantime, we should stand back and watch as our Democrat friends tell their voters to KISS-OFF. The Virginia victories don’t necessarily mean we are out of the woods – things could still go bad.

‘Big government on steroids’: House Republicans line up against Biden’s vaccine mandate
Kery Murakami, Washington Times
House Republicans on Friday railed against President Joe Biden‘s vaccination mandate, saying the new workplace rules break constitutional norms and will force many to lose their jobs. In a show of force, more than 30 House Republicans gathered outside the Capitol to lambast the new mandate for workers at large companies to get COVID-19 shots. Rep. Kevin Hern of Oklahoma, who led the event, said the mandate smacks of socialism.

Florida Judge Sides with State on Mask Mandates, Against Local School Districts
Grant Holcomb, The Star News Network
A judge within the Florida Department of Administrative hearings ruled that the Florida Department of Health (DOH) has the authority to make the rules for public school students regarding quarantines and mask mandates. The decision came after six Florida school districts sued the (DOH) for crafting its rules saying students would no longer be required to quarantine if exposed to COVID and remained asymptomatic. It also banned mask mandates.

 

The Democrats Choose Wokeness Over Winning
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
We need to fool a benighted people better — that will be the upshot of the advice from Democratic Party consultants to party candidates like McAuliffe. The party against parents will be told to make more of an effort to conceal its resentment of them. But the Democrats may have become too dogmatic and delusional to take that advice. Their willfulness militates against any moderation. At some level, they'd rather be woke than win.

Climate Democracy Dies in Darkness
Tim Graham, CNS News
Any challenge to Greenpeace climate-crackdown orthodoxy is classified as "toxic" and "digital hate." The "business model" is this: Only the leftists get to talk on climate policy; everyone else should be suppressed. No one is allowed to question the failed predictions and overwrought "solutions" of climate experts like Greta Thunberg and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Post's slogan should be "Climate Democracy Dies in Darkness."

Did Joe Biden Poop His Pants?
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Do you think it’s outside the realm of possibility that this creepy old weirdo crapped himself? The guy is a wreck. You almost feel sorry for him, or you would if he wasn’t such a corrupt, venal old pervert, but this is beyond mere sympathy. This is our country. The Chinese are getting frisky. The North Koreans are testing missiles. Iran’s forging ahead with a hot rock, and we have a Depends-clad goon as our commander-in-chief.

Some Thoughts on the Governors’ Races: Round 1 to the Good Guys
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Youngkin outran Trump in nearly every, maybe every, of the 133 Virginia counties. I hope “45” is paying attention to these results, because many of us are. He should as well. If he doesn’t, it has been widely and correctly acknowledged that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would be a more than worthy substitute. Indeed, in the absence of Trump, DeSantis would be the runaway front-runner for the Republican 2024 nomination at this point.

Michigan House Approves Bill to Block Critical Race Theory from Schools
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
The Michigan House of Representatives this week voted to pass House Bill (HB) 5097, which aims to block Critical Race Theory from the state’s school curriculum. The measure, sponsored by Representative Ann Bollin (R-Brighton Township), prohibits any form of race or gender stereotyping in core academic curriculum. The legislation passed the chamber on a vote of 55-0, as Democrats refused to vote on the bill. Will Gov. Whitmer veto?

Truck driver Edward Durr dethrones Democratic New Jersey Senate president
Misty Severi, Washington Examiner
Republican candidate Edward Durr has scored a major upset in New Jersey , narrowly defeating Democratic incumbent Steve Sweeney, the president of the state Senate. The race was called for Durr by the Associated Press on Thursday. According to Durr, the thing that harmed Sweeney the most was his lack of action during the pandemic. Durr said his win was also a victory for the parents who were tired of vaccine mandates and school closures.

 

Youngkin’s Decisive Victory Astonishes Democrats
David Catron, The American Spectator
What lessons should the Democrats learn from the GOP victory? In 2020, Biden carried Virginia by 10 points, and McAuliffe began the race with all the advantages associated with his status as former governor. His loss should have a profound impact inside the Beltway. It should cause moderate congressional Democrats to run from the $1.75 trillion “Build Back Better” reconciliation package. Will the Democrats learn from Virginia?

Trump: I Didn't Need to Rally for Youngkin 'Because McAuliffe Did It For Me'
Susan Jones, CNS News
"It is looking like Terry McAuliffe's campaign against a certain person named 'Trump' has very much helped Glenn Youngkin. All McAuliffe did was talk Trump, Trump, Trump and he lost! What does that tell you, Fake News? I guess people running for office as Democrats won’t be doing that too much longer. I didn’t even have to go rally for Youngkin, because McAuliffe did it for me. Thank you to the MAGA voters for turning out big!"

Trump sweeps Election Day, goes 4-0
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
With his post-election popularity and influence at the highest, Trump’s four endorsed candidates in Tuesday’s elections all won, highlighted by Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin, the rookie politician who beat lifetime pol Terry McAuliffe. In the elections, two Trump-backed candidates also beat two of Joe Biden’s endorsed challengers — the victories seen by some Republicans as a sign of 2020 election buyer's remorse and a 2024 preview.

‘No Democrat is safe’: GOP expands 2022 House targets after Democrats falter in Virginia and N.J.
Haris Alic, Washington Times
House Republicans view Democrats’ poor showings in Tuesday’s elections in Virginia and New Jersey as signs of a coming “red wave” and have expanded their list of targeted Democrat-held seats in next year’s midterm elections. The National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm of the House GOP, was previously aiming to unseat 57 vulnerable House Democrats in marginal districts across the country. The list grew to 70.

The Ludicrous Hypocrisy of Climate Conferences Continues
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The climate change faithful need COP. That makes climate conferences essentially annual religious celebrations for atheists, a celebration of the belief that man could control all things. (If that sounds a bit like communism, it is.) Not all that long ago people called our current ecological fixation something simpler—conservation. We all agreed with it then and automatically did our part. We picked up the trash. Now, not so much.

Minneapolis Voters Reject Ballot Initiative to Dismantle Police Department
Star News Staff, The Star News Network
Minneapolis voters Tuesday rejected a ballot initiative to dismantle the police department, according to Fox News. The measure asked voters whether they wanted to amend the city's charter to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a Department of Public Safety. The initiative would have amended the city charter regarding the agency, including funding requirements and control of public safety between the mayor and City Council.

Where Are the Real Domestic Terrorists?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Deaths in 2021 attributed to people the Biden regime considers domestic terrorists: zero. It’s one thing for journalists or government prosecutors to stoke fears of a pending domestic terror attack. It’s malfeasance for powerful government authorities, including Joe Biden, to intentionally mislead the American people on such a grave matter. Just one more in a series of dangerous lies promoted by Joe Biden and his apparatchiks.

Is Failure Baked in the Cake at Glasgow?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
If a radical transformation of national economies is the only way to avert the impending crisis, we should brace ourselves for that crisis. For there is no way the demanded changes in energy consumption will be complete by 2030. The world's losers are likely to be the billions of people who will never know the benefits of fossil fuels that produced the Industrial Revolution and created the affluent societies of the 20th century.

Is the Poop Catholic?
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Rumors have it that Biden had a bowel malfunction in mid-conversation with the pontiff. The weekend’s fetid performance wasn’t a surprise. Laying stinkers is what this administration and its political allies do nowadays. The odor — it’s dishonesty and failure, though it does smell a lot like that other item — coming off Biden is undeniable. It isn’t going away. How much more of it we can take is a question only time can answer.

The Wheels Are Coming Off the Biden Economy
Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times
The income redistributionists who seem to be driving the Democratic agenda will soon learn that their pixie dust economic doctrine called modern monetary theory, which posits that Congress can spend and borrow ad infinitum, is a giant hoax. When the political class begins to plunder company profits indiscriminately in the name of “fairness,” the profits and the businesses start to disappear. Defeat the big Democrat spending bills.

GOP Candidate Hopes Trump E-mail Will Spur Investigation into Zuckerberg Funding of 2020 Election in Michigan
Frank Daniel Miele, The Star News Network
Can President Trump move the ball in Michigan to get legislators to do a serious investigation into how outside money was spent in the 2020 election? No one else has been able to get legislators to pay attention to the $12 million that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shipped to an obscure supposedly “non-partisan” non-profit to influence voters in Michigan, but Tudor Dixon hopes that a recent email by Donald Trump will spur action.

‘Sleepy Joe’: Trump mocks Biden dozing at climate summit ‘for all the world to see’
Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times
Video circulated showing Biden closing his eyes for about 20 seconds as he sat through opening remarks at the U.N. Conference of the Parties, known as COP26, in Scotland. “Biden went to Europe saying Global Warming is his highest priority, and then promptly fell asleep, for all the world to see, at the Conference itself. Nobody that has true enthusiasm and belief in a subject will ever fall asleep!” said Mr. Trump in a statement.

Who Eventually Won the Cold War?
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
When did the United States begin to resemble our old Cold War enemies—to the delight of our current enemies? The Cold War has been over for over 30 years. But who really won that war of ideas may be the real question of the new millennium. After all, America is now seeking to emulate the crude modalities of the Soviet Union and Maoist China that the now-gleeful autocratic Russians and Chinese at least realize nearly destroyed them.

McAuliffe Hires Marc Elias, the Left’s Most Toxic Legal General
John Fund and Hans A. Von Spakovsky, National Review
Marc Elias is the legal mastermind most responsible for the left-wing push to subvert our democracy. Elias's attacks on election integrity have one purpose: to help the Democrats get elected. The fact that he and his allies believe that the best way to do that is to destroy basic security protocols that states have in place to try to prevent fraud is more revealing than anything else they tell the media that fawn over their work.
