The FBI’s Incurable Rot
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
What ails the FBI cannot be solved with a few firings. It cannot be solved with more congressional oversight or threats to cut its funding. The moral rot that infects the agency from top to bottom renders the agency unsalvageable. “This conduct by these FBI agents . . . is unacceptable, disgusting, and shameful,” Maggie Nichols, the gymnast who first reported Nassar’s crimes. Her description applies to the entire FBI.

Unsurprisingly, FedFest 2021 Fizzles
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
It might have been styled as a “Justice for J6” rally, but what it really amounted to was FedFest 2021. It seemed like better than half the attendees were undercover feds, some of whom were caught in a meme-worthy set of still photos. The whole thing was a tragic farce, like everything else the Biden-Pelosi regime has touched in the eight months their political prisoners have spent in the federal fun house without trial.

Are the US and China Stumbling Toward an 'Islands War'?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
If World War III breaks out between China and the United States, it is likely to be over islands of Asia claimed by Chinese communists, with the United States fighting not for its own territory but for the island territory of allies, probably islands in no way vital to the security of the United States. Which is how world powers often end their days as world powers, fighting unnecessary wars on behalf of other nations.

Florida Democrats Close to Losing Voter Registration Advantage
Grant Holcomb, The Star News Network
Florida’s Republican Party is close to catching Florida’s Dems in terms of voter registration. The Democrat Party of Florida once held a 700,000-voter registration advantage, and now only holds approximately a 23,000-voter advantage. According to POLITICO Florida, Florida’s Democrats have known about it for years, but little could be done to maintain their once large margin. Trump's 2020 advantage was larger than 2016's.

Democrats panic
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Things don't look good for Joe Biden's big plans. However, one word of caution for Repubs who hope to see Dems drive themselves over a cliff: At some point, if they realize they are in danger of losing everything, Democrats will probably get together and pass something, if not their pie-in-the-sky plan. They won't walk away empty-handed. But they won't get it all, either, because of one basic fact: They don't have the votes.

Pelosi, Schumer risk government shutdown to avoid Democrat-only hike in debt ceiling
Haris Alic, Washington Times
With Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing that no Republicans will back a vote to hike the debt ceiling and Democrats unwilling to do it unilaterally and tying it to the stopgap measure, Congress faces a potential government shutdown on Sept. 30. At the moment, neither side appears willing to compromise. Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. Schumer are warning lawmakers to prepare for a series of long nights over the next month.

Biden’s War on Red State COVID Patients
David Catron, The American Spectator
It’s difficult to find a nonpartisan reason for the Biden admin.’s decision to deprive patients in seven states of monoclonal antibody treatments that have proven very successful in decreasing hospitalization and death rates pursuant to COVID-19. It is a cynical and politically driven policy that will harm Americans of all races. Are Biden and his lackeys this cruel? What would those left for dead in Afghanistan say?

The Afghanistization of America
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
We may think virtue-signaling pride flags, gender studies, and George Floyd murals in Kabul remind the world of our postmodern sophistication. Yet, in truth, the United States is becoming far more like Afghanistan in the current tribalization of America—where tribal, racial, and ethnic loyalties are now essential to an American’s primary identity and loyalty—than we were ever able to make remote Afghanistan like us.

Heads Won’t Roll
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Our elite mandarins at the top have made a gentleman’s agreement not to hold each other responsible for anything, and it’s sort of working. But it can’t go on forever. The collapse will come. It can’t not. Slowly, our institutions will teeter and crumble, and then suddenly they will collapse entirely. And the people who run them will be surprised. But we won’t. And then what happens in the societal chaos that will follow?

Sen. Cruz: 'There's No Doubt That President Biden's Capacity Is Severely Diminished'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Following a week of missteps for the Biden administration, some are questioning, who is making the decisions? "Whether it is Biden himself, or the political operatives around him, every decision about Afghanistan and, sadly, about just about every foreign policy and domestic policy issue that's come before this White House has been decided as a matter of pure politics," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told Fox's Maria Bartiromo.

Biden could lose 41 House seats, bad as Trump
Paul Bedard, The Washington Examiner
There was a chance that President Biden would end a streak dating back to Bill Clinton of new presidents losing control of Congress in their first two years. But his crummy polling after a long honeymoon now suggests that he will lose as many House seats as former President Donald Trump in 2018 and for the same reason: Voters don’t like what he’s doing on key issues. The generic ballot is tied for the first time since 2015.

The Democrats War on Blacks Keeps Growing in the Pandemic
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
One of the key reasons I left the Democratic Party was the atrocious way they treated black people. I’m not just talking about “Jim Crow” or LBJ’s well-known patriarchal and racist use of the “n-word” to celebrate blacks voting Democratic forever in gratitude for his ultimately useless early “virtue signaling” called the “War on Poverty.” Look at the homeless, border crisis and withholding of COVID medicines. Disgraceful.

There’s a Lot of Revivalism Lurking About
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
The public has taken the measure of the Paul Ryans and Bill Cassidys and Liz Cheneys of the world and wants no more to do with them. A movement larger and longer-lasting than Trump, though perhaps led by him for a time, is waiting to take shape. It’s present in green shoots all across America which are growing despite the toxic spray of the Biden administration. Revivalism is coming. It’ll be unmistakable by next November.

Americans Souring on Biden -- and Washington
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Seventy percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the direction of the USA. The president's disapproval exceeds his approval rating by eight points, just eight months in office. Republicans and Democrats in Congress both get negative ratings from the American people. And only 37% of registered voters approve of the Supreme Court's handling of its role. Half the country disapproves. What lies the future of the republic?

Joe Biden’s Political Prisoners
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
The media suggests January 6 is like any other criminal prosecution. But Americans—at least those without bloodlust for anyone involved in the four-hour disturbance on January 6—plainly see the difference. BLM rioters, Antifa thugs, and anti-Kavanaugh protesters are off the hook while Trump-supporting, anti-Biden protesters wallow in jail for months, charged with obstruction and other silly crimes. Political prisoners? Yes.

FAA Grounds Fox News Drones as Biden Administration Tries to Hide Latest Border Catastrophe
Rick Moran, PJ Media
This is not a humanitarian crisis. This is a PR problem, say the Biden people. And addressing the problem means suppressing any news about it. That just won’t do. Who knows? They might even be persuaded to vote the wrong way? So the Biden administration has taken the extraordinary step of closing the airspace around the bridge to keep the drones of the rogue news organization Fox News from showing the incredible pictures.

A renewed, intensified crisis at the border
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Democrats have written a measure that would be a historic expansion of immigration and are attaching it to the budget bill. That way, immigration will never be debated on its own. It would simply be included in the giant budget bill, and senators who voted for the budget would also vote for the biggest immigration change in memory. And now, the time for decision comes against the backdrop of a newly growing border crisis.

Virginia March for Life Kicks off Early Voting
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
Pro-life advocates marched around the Virginia Capitol in Richmond, the same day as early voting began in Virginia’s elections. According to a Virginia Capitol Police spokesperson, about 600 people participated. The march was peaceful, with only one counter-protester visible. Signs and banners from marchers were focused on pro-life advocacy, not candidates or other issues. One marcher said "McAuliffe is the devil incarnate.”


The Delusions of the Ruling Class
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
America has gone from fake crises under Trump to real ones under Biden — from a period of peace to a presidency of body bags, botched evacuations, and failed drone strikes. Yet the ruling class’s appetite for hysterical books (Bob Woodward's) about the Trump presidency hasn’t waned. Here we see once again that the greatest threat to America came not from Trump but from a ruling class in the grip of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The Death of Science
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
From rewarding wokeness in medical school admissions to the peer-reviewing of scientific papers, the anti-scientific mania has polluted scientific endeavors. Corporations are now asked to substitute a new woke agenda theory - ESG - in lieu of market realities, rules of investment and economic data. Science is dying; superstition disguised as morality is returning. And we’ll all soon become poorer, angrier and more divided.

The Republican Opportunity
Newt Gingrich, CNS News
Can GOP officials, activists, and candidates focus on communicating that Democrats have become Big Government Socialists – and that the old moderate Democratic Party has been replaced by a new radical party? These votes in favor of Big Government Socialism have given Republicans the opportunity of a lifetime to brand the Democratic Party so it becomes a minority for a generation or more. The test now is on the Republican side.

Sen. Paul: Gen. Milley’s Calls to China Could Have Sparked ‘Accidental Nuclear War,’ Wants Polygraph
Star News Staff, The Star News Network
"If I were president, I would sit him down immediately and have him take a polygraph test and ask him, 'What did you say to the Chinese?'" Paul, a Kentucky lawmaker, said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. "Did you indicate that the president was liable to attack them and that you would try to prevent that? If that is true, that could have started an accidental nuclear war." Gen. Milley did not tell Trump about the calls.

Bush Completes His Scummy Betrayal
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
George W. Bush reaffirmed his status as garbage last week. W's scuzzy slander of Trump supporters is no secret. Libs got it immediately; the blue checks had a Twitter festival of toobining about how the architect of so much defeat and misery is now fully parroting the MSNBCNN narrative preferred by his new pals the Clintons and the Obamas. “Those Trump people are just like the Taliban – there, can I get back inside the club?”

Abandon Ship! Time for Conservatives to Leave California
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
California and Californians are beyond repair. If they couldn’t vote Democrat Gavin Newsom out after all that has happened and after the obvious condition of the state almost everywhere you go, except perhaps the French Laundry, it will never happen. Stop kidding yourself. And you’ll be surprised there are a lot of good places to eat outside the state at less than a fifth of the freight of that over-priced Napa Valley redoubt.


The Treacherous Depths Of Mark Milley
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Our constitutional system cannot survive the treachery of men like General Mark Milley. He has to be removed from his position. Frankly, in a nation serious about its own laws and willing to uphold the standards which built it, Mark Milley would be facing a court martial under a charge of sedition and possibly treason, with the not-insignificant potential of the rest of his life spent in Leavenworth and an unnatural death.

Bush Denigrates ‘War on Terror’ Veterans
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Former president George W. Bush and his father, the Cheney family, the McCain family, and other backers of America’s costly “War on Terror” seek the approbation of their one-time enemies at the expense of those who heeded their calls to defend the country. These masters of deflection, desperate to memoryhole their own failures, crassly join the Democrats in weaponizing the events of January 6. Just more collateral damage.

Arizona Becomes First State to Sue Biden Administration over Its New COVID-19 Mandate
Zachery Schmidt, The Star News Network
Arizona became the first state to sue the Biden administration over its federal vaccine mandate. “The federal government cannot force people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Biden Administration is once again flouting our laws and precedents to push their radical agenda,” AG Mark Brnovich said. “There can be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of COVID-19 that doesn’t begin at our southern border.”

Sinking Biden Threatens Va.’s McAuliffe, NJ Gov. Murphy
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
President Biden’s dramatic polling plummet is deflating Democrats and threatens to spoil the party’s certain victories in the 2021 gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey, according to the latest analysis. New polls out following the administration’s bungled Afghan withdrawal and inability to slow the spread of the coronavirus show a growing lack of faith in Biden and with that potentially those who have embraced him.

Americans Should Be Working Hard, Not Hardly Working
Stephen Moore, CNS News
Why are there so many job openings and still unemployed? For years, conservatives, and even many progressive Democrats, advocated a policy of "make work pay." Now we have a de facto federal and state policy of "make sitting on the couch pay." Extra $300 a week unemployment benefits ended on Labor Day. Let's hope this gets workers back in the workforce, where they will earn a paycheck rather than be handed a welfare payment.

A vaccine mandate is neofascist
Rep. Andy Biggs, Washington Examiner
In the narrative, the COVID vaccine will not, according to the CDC, provide immunity against COVID. Healthcare workers who were widely considered heroes even a few months ago but do not want to get a vaccine of declining efficacy that does not seem to provide the security of immunity previously recognized in vaccines will be fired by healthcare companies that are already shorthanded. This seems short-sighted and neofascist.


Who and What Is Tearing the US Apart?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Divisions are far broader — not just economic and political, but social, moral, cultural and racial. We are divided today on the most fundamental of questions: Is America now, and has it always been, a good and great country, worthy of the loyalty and love of all its children, of all its citizens? And are we Americans proceeding toward that "more perfect union" or heading for a reenactment of our previous violent disunion?

Admin Imports Potential Afghan Terrorists, Predators Into U.S.
Senator Ted Cruz, Real Clear Politics
The administration has so far refused to acknowledge that risk of bringing in thousands of Afghans who haven’t been through adequate vetting. Not only did President Biden surrender to the Taliban, which is right now flying the Taliban flag over the former U.S. Embassy in Kabul, flying Black Hawk helicopters and parading advanced weapons from the U.S. military, he brought potential terrorists and predators onto U.S. soil.

The Disgracefulness of George W. Bush
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
George W. Bush's heinous management of American foreign policy was so incompetent that America got no significant oil contracts out of Iraq and no significant rare earth mining contracts out of Afghanistan. News flash: if you’re going to waste our tax dollars on nation-building, we’d like to at least get some economic justification out of it. But we got nothing out of it. Shut up and go away, Dubya. You’ve done enough.

Exclusive: Ashli Babbitt’s Mom Responds to George W. Bush
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Mikki Witthoeft, Ashli Babbitt's mother, responded to George W. Bush’s 9/11 speech comparing protesters to terrorists: "...Shame on you for comparing these 2 days in history. You should have your speech writers dig a little deeper before you push the lies of team Pelosi forward. The Americans that showed up for all of us to protest a corrupt establishment were met with violence-death-imprisonment and complete abuse of power.”

Trump rips Bush’s 9/11 speech: ‘He shouldn’t be lecturing anyone’
Jeff Mordock, Washington Times
Former President Trump: "[George W. Bush] lectures us that terrorists on the ‘right’ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America and that are pouring into our country right now,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Bush in a statement. “If that is so, why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the death of perhaps millions of people? He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything.”

Has the Time Come to Break Up America?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
We are left with an American population at odds with each other in very basic ways, far more important than the usual political disputes about moving tax rates up and down 5 percent. We’re living through a war of values at the deepest levels. Breaking up may be hard to do, but, painful as it is to say, and it certainly is, the time has come to examine it. But maybe, just maybe, in that examination we may find a route back.

Wokeness: An Evil of Our Age
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
There will be a substantial political correction to the madness. The victory of woke would guarantee that as Americans went full pre-modern and pre-civilizational, we would look in the mirror, categorize ourselves and then search out which particular tribal band offers us the best protection from the roving mobs—and each other. Even the Chinese could not invent a more evil, more macabre way to destroy the United States.

Biden’s Deflection Mandate
David Catron, The American Spectator
Biden’s highlighted his contempt for the electorate and the Constitution. He is president because he used COVID-19 as an excuse to hide from voters. Now he’s exploiting the Delta variant to pit us against one another in the hope that we will forget Afghanistan. Meanwhile, he has arrogated powers constitutionally reserved to Congress and states for the explicit purpose of checking the abuses of authoritarians like himself.

With Blue Senate Seats in Play in 2022, Bet on GOP Winners
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Any Democrat running for Senate has, in President Asterisk, a hefty challenge. As a Democrat, you can say what you want, run all the ads about how Trump is literally Hitler and how Texas abortion laws are the biggest issue ever was, and it all still comes back to how you are a reliable rubber stamp for the policy preferences of whoever the hell is behind the scenes pulling the levers on our animatronic chief executive.

Rolling Stone Commits 'Horse Dewormer' Fraud
Tim Graham, CNS News
Did the "fact-checkers" jump to correct Rolling Stone's fake news? No. The conspiracy theory that emerges from this pattern is that the liberal "misinformation" watchers would like to cement the false impression that only right-wing, pro-Trump sites post fake stories and tweets. Picking up on Rolling Stone's fraudulent presentation? That only confuses the narrative of who should be blamed for poisoning the information system.

Marsha Blackburn Says America’s Rapidly-Growing Debt is Immoral, Robs Future Generations
Chris Butler, The Star News Network
Senator Marsha Blackburn said it’s immoral to ram the federal deficit up to these levels. “I’ve got a granddaughter that is about to turn one-year-old... Why would we selfishly, in order to get programs that will outlive their usefulness by the time she earns a paycheck, why would we choose to burden our children? Why would we limit their opportunity? Why would we sacrifice their chance of the American dream or of our freedoms?”

George W. Bush's dreadful 9/11 speech
Byron York, Washington Examiner
At least in the short run, George W. Bush's Shanksville 9/11/21 speech could become one of Bush's most quoted. Democrats will certainly cite it and press Republicans to agree with the Republican former president. Trump supporters will denounce it. But everyone should read it to learn how a former president sees not only his time in office 20 years on but the events he helped shape, whether he wants to face them or not.

20 Years after 9/11 -- Are We Better Off?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Our country is a changed place from 2001. Gone are the unity, confidence and resolution. In relative terms, America is not so dominant a power as it was 20 years ago, while her adversaries seem stronger and more united. Our most powerful rival, Xi Jinping's China, seems belligerent and bellicose compared with the China we brought into the World Trade Organization. Looking back, and looking ahead, the trend line is not good.

Joe Biden Is Worse Than COVID
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
Joe Biden and his handlers want another One Six they can get mileage from. They need something they can use to turn the catastrophic public tide. It’s clear dividing the country on COVID vaccinations, and laying in wait for those who disobey, is their strategy. They’re dangerous. Far more so than the virus. The precedent will destroy what remains of constitutional governance in America. It cannot stand, and must be resisted.

Shameful: George W. Bush Implies Trump Supporters Are Like Jihad Terrorists
Robert Spencer, PJ Media
Speaking at a 9/11 commemoration at the Flight 93 National Memorial in PA, former President George W. Bush, who above all people should know better, made a veiled but unmistakable equation of the January 6 incident at the Capitol with the September 11, 2001, jihad terror attacks in New York and Washington. His equating of the 9/11 jihadis with the people who entered the Capitol on January 6 is nothing short of monstrous.

Justice Department’s Foremost Felony Charge May Be on Thin Ice
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
It is apparent from their recent arguments in court that the government is not prepared to defend the charge (“obstruction of an official proceeding”) before a jury. Even in this toxic political atmosphere, will American jurors consent to criminalize previously lawful political protest in the nation’s capital? President Joe Biden’s Justice Department is on a dangerous slippery slope. The only question is, who will stop them?

Trump on prospect of New York mayoral bid: 'I would love that'
Jeremy Beaman, Washington Examiner
Former President Donald Trump toyed with the idea of running for mayor of New York on Saturday if he were to decide against another presidential bid. When asked, he said, "Well, that's an interesting question," Trump responded to laughs, leaning into his tough-on-crime message. "I would love that. We could straighten it out. I'd say, 'Fellas, good luck, go to town.' They'd be announcing in one week, 'There's no crime in this city.'"

Why Did the USA Hand Afghanistan to China?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Why did the United States cede Afghanistan—a territory bounded by Iran and Pakistan, not to mention control of much of the world’s rare earths and other key resources—to the increasingly totalitarian China of Xi Jinping? For an answer, it’s hard not to think back to those days when, shortly before declaring for the presidency and reversing himself on the topic, our current president told us “The Chinese aren’t our enemies, folks.”

What Biden Considers Un-American
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Biden sees nothing un-American in boycotts of the flag. Opposition to abortion merits his deepest scorn. He can fly Black Lives Matter flags above American embassies, all while casting peaceful pro-lifers as a threat to America’s future. Yet it is the country that Biden seeks to build — one in which universal abortion on demand is protected by judicial tyrants — that the founding fathers would have called unrecognizably American.

Recall Election Could Reverse the California Ideology
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Candidate Larry Elder did not give us the current California. Indeed, he spent most of his life warning us where Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, and the rarified society of the coastal corridor was taking the state. A careening California is heading for a colossal train wreck. Voters will have to pick between the incompetent engineer snoring at the wheel or the private passenger who rushes into cab to get the engine back on track.

If COVID Is Forever, Is This What You Want the Rest of Your Life to Look Like?
Philip Klein, National Review
Having to observe various protocols in perpetuity translates into a reduced quality of life. Put another way, the sort of question we need to start asking ourselves is not whether we can tolerate masking for one trip to the grocery store, but whether we want to live in a society in which we can never again go shopping without a mask. At a minimum, we need to recognize that COVID is likely here to stay. What to do about it?

James O’Keefe: Project Veritas undercover army swells as fed-up insiders come aboard
Valerie Richardson, Washington Times
“We have thousands of people now in the country, hundreds activated, currently operating inside,” Mr. O’Keefe said. “They are not my employees. These are just whistleblowers, insiders. You name the sector of society, we’re on it.” The next target for Project Veritas: newsrooms. Mainstream news outlets are among Project Veritas‘s biggest critics, but Mr. O’Keefe says there are staffers within newsrooms working with him covertly.

Send the Incompetent Brass a Message: Don't Enlist
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The military is, largely, us. You don’t see recruiting stations in Beverly Hills – you see them in places the swells don’t go lest they be soiled by contact with those Jesus gun people who like flags and believe there are only two genders. If we go on strike, the brass has to take notice. There aren’t enough gender studies princesses to fill the ranks. We need a strike. We need it now, not to destroy the military but to save it.

Ben Carson, Youngkin, and Sears Criticize Virginia Education Policy at Loudoun County Rally
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
Former HUD Secretary Ben Carson spoke against mask mandates, Critical Race Theory, and COVID-19 vaccines for children in a Loudoun County appearance alongside GOP candidates Glenn Youngkin and Winsome Sears. A large, energetic crowd filled a conference room; the event was hosted by Fight for Schools and 1776 Action. Youngkin criticized opponent Terry McAuliffe for not speaking out against virtual learning earlier in the year.


Impeach Everybody
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
These guys continuously lied about the situation on the ground in Afghanistan, they managed a withdrawal so incompetent as to be sinister, and they’re willfully leaving Americans behind as pawns to facilitate ransom demands by a terrorist enemy. If swing-district Dems want to fall on the sword for Mark Milley, they should be given that opportunity. Let these guys write the attack ads against them with their own words and deeds.

Biden Approval Tanking in Key House Districts
John Fund, National Review
In each of seven polled districts, Biden’s approval rating is below 50 percent in both foreign policy and in handling of the economy. Republicans lead the generic ballot in the districts by an average six percentage points, and most importantly, by an average of nearly 20 points, those surveyed said they viewed the Dems' $3.5 trillion spending plan as unnecessary and wasteful. Swing district Dems should abandon Nancy Pelosi.

There Goes Grandma Over the Cliff
Stephen Moore, CNS News
Seniors are the biggest losers from the Biden scheme of adding trillions of dollars to our national debt. Democrats say they will pay for their $3.5 trillion debt scam by taxing the rich. Uh-huh. According to the WSJ, even if you took every penny that the millionaires and billionaires have, that still wouldn't pay for the mountain of new spending Biden wants. The piggy bank that they will raid is the Soc. Sec./Medicare fund.

Former President Trump to Host Rally in Georgia
Cooper Moran, The Star News Network
Former President Donald Trump will hold a rally in Perry, Georgia on Saturday, September 25th, his super PAC announced on Tuesday. The event in Perry will mark Trump’s first event in Georgia since campaigning in the state’s Senate runoff election for Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. In that visit, Trump pledged to return to the state to campaign against Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

America Lives Under Healthcare Communism
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
We live under a form of healthcare communism. It’s Big Pharma and the “liberal” government working together, exercising control, for their own advantage. It’s been a sad thing to watch over the last year and a half, the near total politicization of medicine. Some have seen our own treasured providers under the thumb of the diktats of massive institutions. It’s the rare few, like “Dr. Hope,” who have been able to overcome it.

GOP questions Hunter Biden’s big-money art show
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Will Hunter Biden, and the White House, and the art gallery, suddenly become more transparent about the exhibit? Don't count on it. With the GOP in the minority and the father of the artist in the White House, there is no way there will be any official scrutiny of the exhibit. That leaves only the press to look into things. But many major press outlets have actively suppressed negative information about Hunter Biden in the past.


What Did the Capitol Celebrity Cops Do to Roseanne Boyland?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
People should consider the real possibility that the U.S. Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency, killed not one but two unarmed female Trump supporters. We already know that won’t matter to the news media, who covered up the name of Lt. Michael Byrd, the USCP officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt and who now praise him as both a hero and a victim. But it will matter to the public. Deplorable Lives Matter, too.

Biden’s Afghanistan Speech Fails to Fool America
David Catron, The American Spectator
Biden’s Afghanistan disaster will probably transform him into a lame duck. It will make it far more difficult for him to perpetrate further legislative atrocities like the $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill. Even before the withdrawal fiasco, millions were unhappy with the outcome of the 2020 election and anxious for another crack at Democrats. Biden’s Afghanistan blunders provided them with infinitely greater motivation.

Fencing may go back up for Sept. 18 rally in support of U.S. Capitol protesters: Reports
Emily Zantow, Washington Times
The fence around the U.S. Capitol may be reerected nearly two months after it was taken down, as part of security measures for an upcoming rally to demand “justice” for hundreds of accused Trump supporters who breached the building on Jan. 6, according to media reports. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) have been discussing putting the fence back up for the “Justice for J6” rally scheduled for Sept. 18 on the Capitol's west side.

DeSantis Likely to Support Texas-Style Abortion Legislation
Grant Holcomb, The Star News Network
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he could see himself supporting Texas-style abortion legislation. The Texas law (SB 8) came into effect on September 1 after the U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal from abortion providers. DeSantis said it was “interesting” and he was “going to look more significantly at it.” Florida Senate President Wilton Simpson said the legislature is already working on legislation similar to Texas’ law.

The New Rules Bite Libs Right in the Uterus
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Liberals are wetting themselves, which is fun, and they double our fun when they cry about how we’re not holding to the principles they treat like a Francisco hobo treats a sidewalk. Texas conservatives were right to enact the law for many political and moral reasons, but none of them matter. What matters is that they could do it, and therefore they should do it. I warned libs not to change the rules; and they didn’t listen.

'Fact-Checkers' Rush to 'Correct' Grieving Parents
Tim Graham, CNS News
It was truly shocking when President Joe Biden was caught on video checking his watch at Dover Air Force Base on Aug. 29 as the caskets of American soldiers were unloaded into vans. Both Snopes and USA Today felt the urgent, throbbing need to claim that the grieving family members who complained were wrong. So why do a "fact check"? Unless you want to create a social media rebuttal for the complaints of mourning relatives?

Has Biden's End to the 'Forever War' Forever Crippled His Foreign Policy?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Biden's team's credibility is shot. If Biden, as commander-in-chief, draws a red line, what reason is there to believe the country will back him if it comes to enforcing it? August in Afghanistan may have shattered irredeemably the foreign policy consensus and coalition Biden could rely upon. There is no guarantee today that the country will back its commander-in-chief in doing what he deems necessary to the national security.

Biden and the Left-wing Standard of Attacking Presidents
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Was all this hypocrisy predicated on the idea that the Left will never lose power, or that its behavior was defensible for the moment given the accident of Donald Trump? The truth is that in just a few months Joe Biden has wrought a series of disasters that will invoke outrage that dwarfs the concocted anger directed at Trump. And it may be vented through the very protocols that the Left invented for its own short-term advantage.

When Will Liz Cheney Investigate Pelosi’s Role in January 6 Riot?
Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator
Of course, Democrat media allies have rallied to Cheney. It was GOP leaders who demanded the Committee investigate the insurrectionist violence of 2020 in all those cities. It was Democrats who refused. Democrats decidedly want no investigation of those insurrectionist riots, nor a “full repudiation.” The question is: What will Liz Cheney do about that? The answer thus far is: Nothing. Why? Because the fix is in. Shocking. Not.

Jacob Chansley Pleads Guilty to Obstruction, Remains in Jail
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Jacob Chansley, arguably the most iconic figure of the January 6 protest, pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of an official proceeding. Chansley, 33, turned himself in to law enforcement and was arrested on January 9. A grand jury indicted him two days later on six nonviolent counts including obstruction, civil disorder, and “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.” Remaining counts will be dropped.

University of Minnesota Hosts ‘What You Need to Know About Trump Supporters’
Hayley Tschetter, The Star News Network
The event will be presented by Democrat pollster, Stanley Greenberg. The description says, “Pollster Stan Greenberg shares his research regarding Trump voters and how the trends he finds will influence future U.S. elections.” The description for the online event reads, “Many Democrats would like to wish away the large portion of the country that remains enthusiastic supporters of former President Donald Trump. That won’t work.”

Chatting With Larry Elder: The Mystery of California
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
How, given the atrocious condition of the state and the city of Los Angeles, would any sane person not want to try to a new approach to government and a new governor? Call it the mystery of California. How did the most beautiful piece of real estate arguably in the entire globe turn into—let’s be blunt—a rubbish heap? It’s the mystery of democracy. Can it work if the public doesn’t pay attention—or if they’re consistently lied to?

There's a Problem in the Upper Reaches of Our Military
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Something is terribly wrong that reflects something wrong with the country. The Pentagon needs to stop virtue-signaling about diversity days and culturally sensitive food for Afghan refugees. Instead, can it just explain why the Bagram air base was abandoned by night, or why Taliban terrorists are our “partners” in organizing our surrender and escape? Our new woke Pentagon is hell-bent on losing the trust of the American people.

Biden’s Fundamentally Weakened America
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
Joe Biden has promised to complete the fundamental transformation of America that Barack Obama started in his two terms. The project of Obama and Biden was never to strengthen America but to enfeeble it and mask dysfunction as progress. A fundamentally transformed America is a disintegrating one—a descent that can be measured from Obama’s Rose Garden ceremony for the release of Bowe Berghdal to Biden’s calamitous Afghan withdrawal.

Trump Blasts Political Enemies, Warns About Future of U.S. in Wide-Ranging Interview with John Fredericks
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
After speaking with Trump, John Fredericks said, “The signal that he sent today is, ‘I’m running in 2024 to save America. And he said, ‘I don’t know what the hell I’m going to see, what’s going to go on.'” Trump issued dire warnings about the direction of the country before that election. He asked, “Are we going to have a country left in three years? If it keeps going like this, John, you’re not going to have a country left.”

This Guy Is Senile and Can the Media Stop Pretending He’s Not?
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This is serious business, and we have been bequeathed an unserious media, one that understands its role as supporting and reinforcing the bullSchiff narrative. This staggering shell of an always mediocre man is manifestly unfit, physically and mentally (not to mention in terms of basic competence) to be president. And the brave firefighting truth-tellers of the loser media say nothing, which says all we need to know about them.

Reuters Enhances the Aura of Antifa
Tim Graham, CNS News
The DOJ declared "white supremacist groups, not Antifa, stand as the most significant domestic terror threat to the country." This only underlines that the Dems as a party claim to abhor "insurrection," and then support it under banners of "anti-fascism" and "Black Lives Matter." This goes double for liberal media outlets, which undercut their boasts for democracy and civility every time they glorify "anarchist street warriors."

The mortal threat to Democrats’ progressive dreams
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Based on supposedly favorable demographic trends in the early 2000s, Dems openly longed for when white people would no longer be a majority in the U.S. Recent elections have shown them losing ground with key groups, however. Dems should probably stop crowing about census trends. If some of the developments highlighted by Teixeira continue, the party could have serious trouble simply holding itself together in the years to come.


We’re Ruled by the Ostrich Party
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
The D Team is getting so many things so completely wrong right now that they’re well afoul of the Law of Averages even if you stretch it to the limit of what bad luck can explain. Biden’s press conference on Tuesday wasn’t bad luck or even incompetence. It was contempt for his critics, written right into the teleprompter script. Biden might not care about reality, but reality definitely cares about him. And reality bites, Joe.

The Americans Joe Biden Left Behind
Jim Geraghty, National Review
During the evacuation, the U.S. State Dept said that the evacuations of citizens and of green-card holders were both top priorities, although green-card holders quickly disappeared from administration statements and updated statistics. Many green card holders are Afghan-Americans who went back to see relatives. It’s not hard to find people who are quick to sneer that U.S. citizens and green-card holders should have left earlier.

Mother of Slain Marine Suspended from Facebook, Instagram After Criticizing Joe Biden
Peter D'Abrosca, The Star News Network
In her post, Shana Chappell described her encounter with Biden, who met with the families of the Marines who died last week while evacuating Americans and Afghan refugees from the war-torn country, as the Taliban took control. She claimed that Biden interrupted her, and then rolled his eyes at her when she told him that she would never get to hug or hear her son laugh again. Facebook said it “incorrectly” deleted Chappell’s account.

Pro-Antifa teacher brags about turning students into radicals in Project Veritas video
Valerie Richardson, Washington Times
An Antifa-friendly California high school teacher said his mission is to transform his students into left-wing revolutionaries, as shown in an undercover video by Project Veritas. Gabriel Gipe, who teaches AP government at Inderkum High School in Sacramento, said in the undercover footage that he offers extra credit to his students for attending protests and other events promoted by groups such as the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

Resign now: 52% want Biden out but fear worse under Harris
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
In the latest shocking display of the president’s polling free fall, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey found that a majority, 52%, wants Joe Biden to resign over the withdrawal alone. Just 39% disagrees, far short of his political base. But, as other polls have shown, likely voters surveyed do not want Vice President Kamala Harris to step in, viewing her as unqualified. Only 38% said she is “qualified”, while 58% said she isn’t.

If We Soak the Rich, Will Everyone Get Wet?
Stephen Moore, CNS News
A flat tax rate of 19% without all the loopholes would force almost everyone to pay some tax each year. Moreover, it would preclude the millionaire and billionaire crowd from sheltering the bulk of their income in loopholes and exotic deductions. Democrats love to talk about how "we are all in this together," and they are right. This is why we must not tolerate an income tax system with more than half of the public paying nothing.


Bad Moon Rising for Biden -- and Us
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Our American media are as partisan as they have been in our lifetimes. Our cultural elites endlessly mock the traditional values and beliefs of Middle America. Our national parties appear ever at sword's point. Our goal, it is said, is to ever move "toward a more perfect union." Does it seem like that is the direction where we are heading? Are the divisions between us becoming too great for us to remain one nation and one people?

The Media Whitewashes Biden’s Afghanistan Blunders
David Catron, The American Spectator
Media scrutiny to which Joe Biden has been briefly subjected is already ebbing. Soon we’ll be back to fearmongering about COVID, fictitious accounts of the January “insurrection,” conspiracy theories about white supremacists, and false accusations of GOP voter suppression. But one thing will be hard to shove down the memory hole. The Afghanistan fiasco caused many voters to critically assess Biden — and what they saw was alarming.

More Similarities Between the Whitmer Plot and January 6
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Given what we now know about the FBI’s Whitmer operation and how January 6 is bleeding into that case, it’s time for FBI Director Christopher Wray to account for any agents or informants involved with so-called “militia” groups before and during the Capitol protest. It’s almost impossible to believe, considering the deep involvement the agency had in the Whitmer scheme with the same groups, that the FBI had nothing to do with it.

Learn From Minnesota: How to Run for School Board…. and Win!
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Lists of who has actually voted and their party affiliation are available. Get them. And consider running in tandem with a couple of other candidates because if you do win, you’re going to need like-minded colleagues against an entrenched force of liberal reactionaries augmented by the usually-nefarious local Chamber of Commerce. Those who choose to run for school board are the American heroes of our time. Help them any way you can.

With last troops out of Afghanistan, House GOP plans 'accountability' for Biden administration
Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner
With U.S. troops fully out of Afghanistan by Joe Biden’s Aug. 31 deadline, House Republicans who opposed the withdrawal date are full of rage — and planning a variety of legislative tactics to get a better understanding of the situation. GOP lawmakers say they want to hold the administration accountable for failures in the withdrawal’s execution that left 13 U.S. service members dead and hundreds of Americans still in the country.

Youngkin Announces Major Policy Goals in His ‘Day One Game Plan’
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin unveiled a long list of policy priorities prominently featuring tax breaks alongside spending on law enforcement and schools in his “Day One Game Plan.” His announcement also included a declaration that he would ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) from being taught in schools or used in teacher training, and he said he wouldn’t implement COVID-19 shutdowns. "I will be the jobs governor of Virginia."


Our Afghan Nightmare: Tanks for Nothing
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
Biden thinks August 31 is the “end” of Afghanistan. In fact, it is a new beginning of yet another chapter in the much despised “war on terror.” This time, the Taliban are victorious. They have been reinvented as the world's best-equipped jihadist nation, basking in the prestige of humiliating the world’s superpower, and will take ownership of hundreds of billions of Western investment in infrastructure in Afghanistan’s major cities.

Own Your Failure Biden Voters
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Accept responsibility for what you’ve done. Your failure was voting for Biden, and you need to own it. In this way, the pain of recognizing that you sucked and you helped make a small contribution to the decline of your country into the gelatinous blob it has become in just seven months under Grandpa Badfinger may dissuade you from failing again in the future. By voting for Biden, you were another color in his rainbow of failure.

Gavin Newsom and Larry Elder Caught in a Tight Race in California
John Fund, National Review
In the end, the result of California’s recall will be determined by two questions. Can the unlimited contributions that Gov. Newsom’s big-business and big-union allies pour into his coffers juice the enthusiasm level of Democrats? Second: Will a governor who even his friends acknowledge is “accident prone” be able to dodge more examples of California’s suffering impacting voter consciousness before the recall? Will liberals turn out?

Who’s Skipping the Vaccine? The Answer May Surprise You
Brian C. Joondeph, M.D., American Thinker
As reported in Summit News, “A new report has found that the most highly educated Americans are also the most vaccine hesitant.” This was not a survey of a few hundred, but of 5 million Americans. They found a U-shaped curve with greatest hesitancy among the least and most educated. “The most common concern for those who are hesitant to take the vaccine is potential side effects, with a lack of trust in government close behind in second."

DeSantis Demands Feds Account for All People ‘Resettled’ in Florida
The Center Square, The Star News Network
Florida Governor DeSantis said when visiting Florida law enforcement officers deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border in July, they told him that seven-of-10 aliens they found trying to cross the border said they were eventually bound for Florida. “When someone comes pouring across, what they do is they hand them over to the feds,” DeSantis said. “And the feds just released them. They’re releasing huge amounts of people into the country.”

Nation fails Biden on Afghanistan, fear 500+ will be left behind
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner
Data shared by Rasmussen showed how far Biden has fallen in the eyes of likely voters since suicide blasts killed 13 American service personnel last week. 66% rate Biden’s handling of the crisis fair to poor, with 52% calling it “poor.” By a wide 50%-34% margin, likely voters called tomorrow’s withdrawal “a bad decision.” 51% said the blundering policy will leave at least 100 and maybe over 500 Americans behind after troops withdraw.

We're Going to Learn What It Means to Lose a War
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
What will also be needed from us, soon after the fall of Afghanistan, is a reappraisal of America's commitments across the Middle East. We have 900 U.S. troops in Syria who control the oil reserves of that country and serve as a shield for the Syrian Kurds. How long should we keep them there? We retain several thousand troops in Iraq. Why? These are questions for which new answers are going to be needed. America must accept reality.

Biden Gave Up More Than Bagram
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
What’s most notable about the people currently in charge of the U.S. (Democrats) is that they hate America. They can’t deny that. According to them this country is based in slavery, misogyny, homophobia and racism. They believe that our wealth was stolen from blacks and aboriginal inhabitants of this continent. That our founding documents are flawed and meaningless. And that our own people are the greatest threat to our homeland.

Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Thanks to the collective negligence of Biden and his regime, and their shameless politicking, Afghanistan is in complete chaos, young Americans are dead, and Afghan civilians are in mortal danger. Our country is far less safe than it was just a few weeks ago. The long term consequences of not just their complete failure in Afghanistan but their obsession with Jan. 6 and imaginary “domestic terrorists” will be deadly. Shame on them.

Capitol Police officer threatened for shooting Ashli Babbitt should ‘suck it up,’ widower says
Andrew Blake, Washington Times
Aaron Babbitt said he cannot sympathize with Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd and said he has been receiving frequent threats as well. “I don’t even want to hear him talk about how he‘s getting death threats and he‘s scared. I’ve been getting death threats since Jan. 7 — two, three, five, 10 a day — and all I did on Jan. 6 was become a widower. So, you’re going to have to suck it up, bud, and take it,” Mr. Babbitt said on Fox News.

Hiding behind his tears — Sorry Biden’s decisions led to Kabul carnage
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Biden’s deadline makes it harder to hunt down those who planned the attacks. America is taking its dead and wounded and leaving in the immediate aftermath of a slaughter. It’s not honorable, it's a surrender, and a defeat disguised as success. Meanwhile, terrorists everywhere will celebrate, and the 20th anniversary of 9/11 will be the greatest recruitment tool ever for their twisted cause. Never forget it happened on Biden’s watch.

Unlimited Power: The Latest Supreme Court Dissent Is A Window Into The Mind Of The COVID Bureaucracy
Christopher Bedford, The Federalist
Breyer and his political allies on the left and throughout the Dem Party have unfailing faith in the technocracy; it’s near-religious, and we’re all living in it. Some of the government power growth is natural. But much of it is the result either of active policies in favor (or a failure to enact policies restricting it), driven by men like Woodrow Wilson and Breyer, educated and intelligent men who think experts will think for us.


Does America Still Work?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Americans live in a world of cellphones, Skype and Zoom. But high tech has become a mere veneer pasted over medieval urban streets and Depression-era highways. It is more dangerous to walk the nighttime streets of Chicago than those of war-torn Kabul. Until our officials can ensure a humane and sustainable standard of living, we have no business lecturing others abroad, much less conducting endless witch hunts of our own at home.

The Shame of the Never Trumpers
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
There are some who secretly yearn to return to the days of measured GOP decline, like under Bush. Those simps need to know the fate that awaits Benedict Arnolds. Contempt for the Cruise Ship Cons provides a cautionary example. We want pols who support our America First agenda, but we’ll make do with pols who are too terrified of the base to oppose it. The fate of the Never Trumpers must await all who would stab us in the back.
