Stupidest Story Of The Week: Put Your Masks Back On

We rose to the occasion with the “fifteen days to slow the spread.” We never overwhelmed the hospitals. We stayed in our houses and worked from home, and some of us even obeyed those idiotic one-way traffic shopping lanes at supermarkets in order to socially distance and protect the elderly from getting sick. But that’s done now, it’s over.

Philadelphia’s Fall Continues: Highest Murder Rate Of The Largest U.S. Cities

The current plague of violence is impacting the black community at a dramatically higher rate than other ethnic groups, with over 85% of all homicide victims last year being black folks, even though they make up only 44% of the population. If black lives truly matter, why hasn’t Black Lives Matter descended on Philadelphia to help put a stop to this massacre?

Stupidest Story Of The Week: The Killers At Facebook

Blaming Facebook for killing people if users post erroneous information about vaccines is akin to accusing a bullhorn of murder if someone uses it to shout “fire!” in a crowded movie theater. Facebook is a platform, a tool, and like just about every other tool imaginable, people will misuse tools.

Dems’ Solution To Fixing Schools? Lower The Bar… For Both Students And Teachers

So rather than insisting on black students receiving better educations so that they can score better on the standardized tests, they just eliminate those test results from the equation. The students in question haven’t been helped by the watering down of requirements, but those geniuses running the institutions – the ones with a slew of letters after each of their names – they sure feel better about themselves when sipping their wine and gobbling from the cheese plate at their dinner parties.

Confused On Cuba, Tantrum In Texas, And Peach State Proof: The Week In Review

When capitalists die, they hope they go to heaven. When socialists die, they hope they go to communism. And Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have been beating the drum for years now about how great socialism is. Cuba’s uprising is wholly contradictory to their narrative which is why their messaging is so peculiar.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Reminds Us, Bowing To The Woke Mob Is A Bad Idea: A Growing List Of Examples

While Smith was clearly naïve in suggesting that the English language is relatively easy to learn, his overall point that English-speaking stars help make the sport easier to sell is obviously true. The level to which the situation is problematic is certainly debatable, but Smith’s position was certainly reasonable. But reasonableness doesn’t matter to the woke.

Maxine And Cori’s Abhorrence, Trump Takes On Tech, And ESPN’s Diversity Dilemma: The Week In Review

This effort by Biden, Fauci, and the rest to divide us by vaccines is just their latest approach to identity politics. It’s not about public health and safety, it’s about power. At every opportunity they try to divide us by skin color, religion, gender, sexual preference, and age, among other traits. Now they’re trying to divide us based on antibodies.

As Our Culture War Rages, The Time Has Come: Cancel California

Men being required to use the men’s room, and the banning of a six-foot-six-inch student with an Adam’s apple and a five o’clock shadow from competing against your daughter in volleyball is more than California can take. “We’re in the midst of an unprecedented wave of bigotry and discrimination in this country,” said Rob Bonta, California’s Attorney General. We are indeed seeing unprecedented actions taking place, Mr. Bonta. At least you’ve got that right.

Revival Lit the Fire for the American Revolution

New York Mayor Mess, CNN Nosedive, And Cosby Cut Loose: The Week In Review

The left has been screaming that the laws enacted in states like Georgia and Florida are akin to ‘Jim Crow,’ which is a lie. But those assertions beg a question. What’s more similar to Jim Crow: laws requiring people to show ID when they vote, or an election which resulted in over 100,000 fake votes being counted to the detriment of a black candidate, which Eric Adams is?

Top 10 Examples of Leftist and Democratic Racism

A Biden ‘gaffe’ is when he thinks he’s in Vermont when he’s actually in New Hampshire, or when he asks a wheelchair-bound politician to stand up. But when Ole’ Joe states that “Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” we’re getting a clear look into his half-empty brain and his attitudes towards race. In President Biden’s mind, white kids are talented and bright, and poor kids are black

Baseball Blew It: MLB’s Decision to Move All-Star Game Looks Worse Every Day

To use a tennis analogy in respect to MLB, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision in early-April to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver was an unforced error. And a costly one. After receiving pressure from Democrats and their media regarding Georgia’s controversial-but-not-really-controversial voting law, Manfred bowed to Cancel Culture and demands from the MLB Players Union and succumbed.

Biden’s Bizarre Behavior, Rhode Island Racist, and Battle of the Big Apple: The Week in Review

It’s difficult to understand why Biden used that approach; whispering and leaning forward. The first time he did it came across as odd, but OK… whatever. When he did it again, I thought, “what is wrong with this guy.” And after he did it a third time, I was ready to call the Twinkie Truck to come and get him. There is no logical explanation to explain Biden’s performance.

These People Need an Intervention: The Mainstream Media’s Obsession with Trump Continues

A few moments of channel hopping various news broadcasts yesterday evening yielded the same results, with virtually all of them touching on Trump in some way or another, and the same with print newspapers and their websites. If we didn’t know any better by the amount of attention he gets, one could swear Trump was still in the White House and Biden was wandering around a dog track somewhere trying to place a bet on a race from last week.

Joke of the G7, Pathetic Pandering to Putin, and Bye-Bye Bibi: The Week in Review

Biden is losing it, there is no doubt. It’s official… the guy is a hot mess. Among other examples of his obvious, growing senility was the moment in which he repeatedly confused the nations of Libya and Syria. To be clear, it’s not like the president was jumbling Slovakia with Slovenia. Libya and Syria are on different continents, for crying out loud, with entirely different diplomatic dynamics. And they are both critical nations for very different reasons. It’s like confusing Oregon with Pennsylvania.

What If the Media Had Told the Truth? Five MSM Lies for Which Trump Has Been Vindicated, and the Damage They Caused

• This scandal was obvious going back to the Democratic primaries. If the media had reported accurately on it from the beginning, and Biden had been held to account for his possible illegal associations with his son’s business partners, there’s a good chance Biden never would have been nominated and another Democrat would have ran against Trump.

Trump Told the Truth, Harris An Embarrassment, and Hunter’s a Racist: The Week in Review

Let’s forget about the journalistic and political malpractice regarding hydroxychloroquine for a second and consider the human impact. How many COVID patients died because they refused hydroxychloroquine based on the media’s false reporting? How many doctors might have otherwise used the drug and saved patients if it wasn’t for the fake news narrative by Democrats and the mainstream media? Trump Derangement Syndrome isn’t just real, it can be deadly.

Burger King Proudly Donates to LGBTQ Group — as It Does Business in Nation That Kills Homosexuals

Corporations are like water, taking the shape of the vessel in which they find themselves — even if it’s shaped like Beelzebub himself. Legion now are the stories of the business and individuals who’ve value-signaled over a bathroom bill in North Carolina or some other such thing while simultaneously making millions off lands whose un-woke laws represent everything these wokesters claim to despise.

Heroic Professions of the COVID Pandemic: It’s A Long List, But Teachers Aren’t On It

Adult teachers, like adult truck drivers and cable repairmen, faced different risks based on age and underlying health conditions. For those teachers who were at-risk, just like for the truck drivers and cable guys, they could have stayed home and not worked at all. Teachers with hypertension, diabetes, and lung disease could have stayed away, and the same with students. But that’s not what happened.

Top 10 Rising Stars of the Republican Party

Some will opine that Crenshaw is insufficiently conservative which doesn’t fly. Crenshaw is plenty conservative. He’s Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, opposes the Affordable Care Act, and was a loyal defender of President Trump. He also has excellent political instincts and a sense of practicality about him. He has frequently appeared on various cable news outlets for a few years now, and we should expect that trend to continue

Lab Leak Likely, Floyd Commemoration Commotion, and Biden’s Blowout Budget: The Week in Review

The idea that the virus originated in the Wuhan lab was never a “fringe theory” as the left and their media have tried to portray it. It was a no-brainer. A new virus emerges within a mile of a well-known lab which researches such diseases, and we were all supposed to think it was a coincidence? It was always a fringe theory to suggest that the virus didn’t come from the lab.

Notre Dame Rejects Biden as the Tide Continues Turning with the Abortion Debate

Many attribute the swing in public opinion to the advent of ultrasound, which is a point with some validity. Anyone who’s ever had the honor of being present when an expectant mother goes through the procedure understands the magic of ultrasound. Being able to see a child in the womb is a marvel, and is enough to make one weepy; God’s handiwork on full display.

‘Skyrocketing Inflation for Dummies’ – Brought to You by Joe Biden

When inflation sets in and prices begin rising, the effect on wealthy folks is minimal. If a gallon of milk costs $4 today, and $5 by the fall, and then $6 at Christmas, it’s no big deal to a millionaire. It’s the same with gasoline, or automobiles, or pot roasts. The fat cats just shrug their shoulders, start up the Mercedes, and head to the golf course.

Biden Emboldens, Pipeline Problem, and Cheerio Cheney: The Week in Review

For the record, Rep. Cheney, we don’t expect you to be silent about Trump or anyone else. It’s OK to criticize him, and it’s OK to despise him. But he’s been out of office for four months now. Get over it. Here’s a suggestion: Stand up straight, close your eyes real tight, click your heels together, and repeat after me. “There’s no one like Mitt Romney. There’s no one like Mitt Romney.”

Dems Comparing Modern Laws to Jim Crow: Is it Hyperbole, Ignorance, or Dishonesty?

The only racism coming from this debate is from the left. If you put forth the idea that minority folks in Georgia are less capable of acquiring and then remembering their IDs on Election Day, then you are the racist. If you claim that minority folks in Florida won’t be able to ensure their absentee ballots are received by election officials without such assistance, then you are the racist.

Top 10 Absurdities of the COVID Pandemic

The media spent the first six months of the pandemic essentially copulating with Democratic governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo, while simultaneously vilifying and openly rooting against Republican governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis. DeSantis would “have blood on his hands” they told us, while concurrently paving the way for issuing an Emmy Award for Cuomo. In reality, the performances were the exact opposite of their narrative.

The Chauvin Trial Verdict Is In: Due Process In America Has Been Sentenced To Death

We are all entitled to our opinions on Derek Chauvin’s guilt or innocence. The trial had been widely covered and broadly watched. Considering the intricacies of the case, reasonable people could have opinions either for or against conviction. But unless we were one of the twelve individuals who made up that jury, our opinions didn’t matter, and neither did the opinions of people like Maxine Waters.

Why Not Make the Minimum Wage $150 Per Hour?

If economic growth would jump with a bump to $15, what’s stopping us from making it $150 so we can see an economic boom? The issue, of course, is that there are substantial negative consequences to increasing the minimum wage.

Republicans Who Attack Donald Trump: How Should We Respond?

Trying to drown out the voices of dissenting conservative voices will not help the conservative cause. Democrats like to claim they have a “big tent,” one that is tolerant of a variety of views. That claim is a lie, of course, and Republicans need to show them how it’s done.

Impeachment Reach, Big Tech Targets, and General Observations of the Week

With impeachment and the impending Senate trial, Democrats will keep Trump and the riots on the front burner of our national dialogue longer than they would have been otherwise, and they will try to get as much of their radical agenda through as possible. But hoping to distract voters from the absurdity of issues like Medicare-For-All and the repealing of tax cuts by dwelling on Donald Trump won’t work. And unless they can get questionable Democrats in the Senate to abolish the filibuster, their radical agenda is largely doomed anyway.

As the Culture War Rages, Opportunity Knocks

We’re in a culture war that’s just beginning to heat up, and we should act accordingly. And while our opponents may have a massive head start on us, that gap is ripe with opportunity for conservative businesses to fill the subsequent voids.

Mainstream Media, the Enemy of the People? Trump was Right

The only way for citizens in a republic to hold their elected officials accountable is at the ballot box. Do a good job with integrity and you get reelected. Do a lousy job or engage in corruption and you get voted out. That answerability is the most critical aspect of our form of government, and an honest media that accurately reports the facts regarding those who would be elected is arguably the most important player in the electoral process.

Music City Musing, Georgia Jostling, and General Observations of the Week

What has to be a questionable strategy, however, is the amount of Hollywood celebrities who have weighed-in on the races in support of the Democrats. If you’re a Georgia voter and you see Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick and Justin Timberlake giving their opinions on who you should vote for, unless you’re a under the age of twenty-three there should be only one thought in your mind – “Shut the hell up, Hollywood.”

Qualifications of Mayor Pete – There’s Only One, And That’s All He Needs

We need safe highways and efficient air traffic control, which means we need Buttigieg to do well. Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation has nothing to do with his job performance, but that is, after all, the entire point. Neither Pete Buttigieg nor anyone else should be turned down for a job just because they are gay, but they shouldn’t be hired strictly for that reason either.

Quiet on Cuomo, the Electoral College Elects, and General Observations of the Week

Forget that tens of thousands have died due to Cuomo’s utter incompetence with COVID, and forget that he’s an overall lousy governor; Cuomo is unassailable. If indisputable evidence were to come out tomorrow proving Cuomo barbecues puppies and prefers them medium-rare and served with hollandaise sauce, the mainstream media would simply shrug their shoulders and ignore it.

E Pluribus Etiam Magis – From Many, Even More… Just Ask Jill Biden’s Defenders

Franklin and our other Founding Fathers understood the importance of being unified, and they asserted that such unification must be centered on common values shared by all Americans. Almost two-and-a-half centuries later, however, our friends on the Left appear hell bent on division, not unity. Separating us by inherent traits is the objective, and identity politics is the tactic. Common values be damned.

North Korea & COVID – Communism in Action

Make no mistake: it may appear that many in today’s Democratic Party are merely flirting with socialism, but communism itself is a natural progression. And if the outright embrace of socialism is not yet mainstream ideology for Democrats, it’s not far off.

Feds Hunting Hunter, Swallwell Called Out, and General Observations of the Week

For those that argue a scandal with Hunter doesn’t equate to a scandal for Joe, consider what the media’s coverage would be if the situation was reversed. What if we found out this week that those old accusations against Donald Trump Jr being nefariously involved with Russian characters weren’t just imaginary infractions, but were indeed being investigated by the Justice Department and a Senate Committee?

The Abortion Debate: Yes, Men Should and Must Weigh-In

Motherhood may be the single-most beautiful example of God, of nature, and of humanity. It is the very essence of love. Childbirth and motherhood are simply magical, and they are a blessing that can only be experienced by women. Men can never experience what mothers do. Instead, we are left to marvel at the miracle of motherhood and to do everything we can to support and protect it.

Calling All Masculinists – Unite Against Systemic Sexism

In the midst of all the hubbub this past summer, as our comrades from AntiFa engaged in their peaceful riots, one aspect of American injustice that continued unchecked and without mention from our allies in the mainstream media was the mounting problem of systemic sexism. Everywhere we look, the problem of men being discriminated against and mistreated not only persists, but grows.

Biden Resigning, Female Football, and General Observations of the Week

We can debate about what Good Ole’ Joe was trying to say, but there’s one thing that the exchange illustrates perfectly and of which we can be totally clear: Joe Biden’s mindset. Biden is not going to govern as a moderate and he is not going to be a barrier between the radical left and the center of his party. Joe Biden will be completely malleable.

First Obama, Now Harris – Can We Say America’s Not Racist Yet?

Undoubtedly, America’s past is not perfect, but we have consistently taken steps to right our wrongs. Those steps have resulted in the election of racial minorities to the highest offices in our country becoming commonplace. No, America is not racist, but we are instead showing the rest of the world once again what true freedom and equality looks like. God bless America.

Top 10 Worst Television “Journalists”

#4 Brian Stelter (AKA Cryin’ Brian) –
Until recently, Stelter was best known for frequent on-air sobbing at a level to make even colleague Don Lemon blush. But in late-October, Stelter gained further notoriety when he came to the defense of fellow CNN personality Jeffery Toobin. Toobin, as you may recall, was caught spanking his monkey during a Zoom call with colleagues from CNN and The New Yorker. So what was Stelter’s defense of Toobin? Stelter explained that Toobin’s behavior was “an accident.” Yup, because that type of thing happens all the time, don’t you know. One minute, everything is fine, you’re on a Zoom call interacting with folks, and then wham! All of sudden, you’re choking your chicken… accidentally.

So, Joe, You Say You Want To Unify Us…

While Mr. Biden was ranting about something called “badacathcare” a few weeks ago, many of us scratched our heads in confusion. But earlier in the election cycle when Biden famously lectured, “You ain’t black,” his message was unmistakable, and it certainly wasn’t unifying. Similarly, when Biden was reminiscing about his past kids rubbed his hairy legs earlier in the campaign, many of us reflected on Biden’s more recent history, such as that time he preached “Mitt Romney’s gonna put y’all back in chains.” That statement wasn’t very unifying either. But let’s put that all behind us now, because Joe Biden has pledged to bring us together, and we all know that Good Ole’ Joe is a man of his word.

College Kids are Coming Home for Thanksgiving – It’s Time for Some Deprogramming

We’re in the midst of a mass exodus of college students heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday. They are our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and cousins. Many of them will have endured three months of leftist indoctrination in the faux-reality that is academia. The Left tends to disparage our country and its history, paint a rosy picture of socialism/communism, and demonize anyone who dares to disagree. We should expect that such an approach has probably been applied to the still-developing minds of those returning young scholars we love so dearly.

Release the Kraken, COVID Vaccines, and General Observations of the Week

Whatever voting irregularities, improprieties, and fraud occurred, we need to get to the bottom of them. Expose the perpetrators, prosecute them, and imprison them; no doubt. But getting our hopes up for something that looks increasingly unlikely to happen is not helping anyone. Knock of the hyperbole, tell us the facts, and give them to us straight.

Government Incompetence: The Real Pandemic of 2020

In my view, if the COVID pandemic of 2020 has highlighted one thing, it’s that government incompetence is just as alive now as always.
Now, to be clear, I’m not referring to the Trump Administration’s response to COVID. What Trump did once it became clear that China had lied and Americans were dying was rely on the federalist system that our Founders designed.
He left it to the states to do what they saw fit based on their unique situations and populations. When they needed supplies, he used the resources of the federal government to get them needed medical supplies and resources. Hence why both Gavin Newsom and Governor Cuomo thanked Trump for what he gave them.

AOC Wants a List of Trump Supporters. What Will She Do with It?

That should send chills down your spine. Not because Antifa is frightening; it’s not, it’s just a gang of underweight soy boys. No, it’s frightening because it means a member of the Democratic Party is planning on creating a blacklist of millions of Americans and then using Antifa, an armed group, to go harass those Americans. That is beyond the pale for America.

In Defense of Big Pharma

It’s human nature to want to benefit financially from hard work, risk and innovation. There are thousands of scientists and corporate executives who are millionaires because they were responsible for the development of life-saving medicines. Not only should we congratulate them on their financial success, we should collectively shake their hands, and say, “Thank you, and may God bless you.”

It’s Time To Dramatically Increase the Penalty for Election Fraud

If we can’t trust an election’s results, how can we trust the government that election yields? This was a point that was frequently made during the Russia Hoax, and one that would have been justifiable if there had been any validity to their accusations. Any democracy needs to have faith in the integrity of their elections, and failure to achieve that trust will only sow increasing resentment and skepticism. Regardless of that fact, those who should care don’t, and choose instead to brush off the idea as if it was just dandruff on their overcoat; nothing to see here, folks.

Presidential Uncertainty, a GOP Senate and General Observations of the Week

In spite of four years of the mainstream media accusing Trump of every form of bigotry imaginable, Trump saw his percentage of voters increase in every demographic but one – white men. Blacks, Hispanics, women, LGBTQ members, and so on; every other group saw an elevation in the percentage of Trump voters in 2020 compared to 2016, in spite of the fierce efforts to smear him. Remarkable.

The Mainstream Media’s COVID Cover-up Continues

The Left and their media can’t afford to have President Trump’s positions legitimized. If someone comes out and backs Trump’s COVID-19 plans, the media have to cover it up. They have to discredit them, even if that means winking and nodding to Joe Biden’s absurd claim that 44,000 scientists/doctors are “nobody.”

Goliath was a Chump Compared to What Trump has Fought Against

If Donald J. Trump wins reelection today, it will make David’s defeat of Goliath look like a foregone conclusion. “Goliath got his ass kicked,” said the Philistine, “big deal.” Never in American history has a presidential candidate faced such committed, sustained, and malicious opposition from such formidable opponents. One could credibly argue that a Trump victory would be nothing short of miraculous considering the headwinds against which our 45th President has struggled. Buster Douglas defeating Mike Tyson was ho-hum compared to Trump’s challenges. Harry Truman’s defeat of Thomas Dewey was a walk in the park.

Trump is Trump, But Biden Wants You to Think He’s Someone Else

Joe Biden is the quintessential Washington D.C. swamp-dweller who is uncompromising in his craving for power . He wants you to think he’s someone else because he has a 47-year record with virtually no accomplishments to tout. He wants you to think he’s someone else because the real Joe Biden is not particularly electable. Don’t be fooled: we know who Joe Biden is, and he’s none of the things he’s pretending to be.

Twitter is Interfering in the Election by Silencing the Trump Campaign and Censoring Conservatives

Big Tech companies like Twitter and Facebook have gone beyond the pale with what they did to silence discussion about the New York Post stories about Joe Biden’s lies and Hunter Biden’s corruption. In fact, by shutting down the Trump Campaign’s account for doing nothing other than tweeting out an article, I think that Twitter is interfering in the election.

What the Toobin Scandal Really Exposes

The media’s indifference to the Jeffery Toobin scandal is just one more example of their aversion to the truth.
