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.

Israel’s Fight: A Righteous War Against Hamas Terrorism

For now, Americans are fighting against this evil and many others with the pen, but there comes a day when the pen is no longer enough, after one sees one’s country attacked and put upon for too long a time, by so many enemies aligned and allied with one another, both foreign and domestic.

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.

Dumbth: The Lost Art of Thinking

The late Steve Allen was an author, songwriter, and comedian, and among the most prolific talents in broadcasting history. He wrote more than 9,000 songs, including “This Could Be the Start of Something Big,” which is still aired at New Year’s Eve galas. Not bad for someone who played by ear.

Saving Civilization

here had been threats since Chauvin was charged with second and third degree murder and second-degree manslaughter that acquittals would provoke rampaging riots. After the riots last summer, no one could doubt the threats’ credibility. A guilty verdict on all counts could avoid injuries, deaths, and billions of dollars in property damage.

Three Significantly Underrated Movies & Why They’re Great – From the Perspective of a Conservative Thinker

Yet the road Murray took was awful, cretinous, murderous, suicidal, really evil stuff, with no thought of the consequence for the innocent and they are abundant. Andie McDowell plays the love interest, which settles the film down as well as Murray’s selfishness, but the lesson is subtle at the end: be the best person you can be, not just the best person you think you want to be, which in Murray’s case is not so hot.

Did Ruth Bader Ginsburg Correct God?

It takes a certain kind of person to speak ill of the dead, so I am saying the following respectfully. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was honored, loved and adored, but she wasn’t always right.

The Biden Honeymoon is Definitely Over

This isn’t the normal grumbling of citizens embarrassed by a President’s Texas accent or his mean tweets.  This is the seething anger that one gets when cheated by a con artist.  We were promised a return to normalcy.  What we got was a doddering old fool with the most radical agenda in history.

Six Blatant and Damaging Lies by President Joe Biden

In this installment of our weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative examine six of Joe Biden’s most egregious lies since becoming president only 123 days ago, and the damage caused by this dishonesty.

35 Republicans Plead Insanity

Okay, so they didn’t really claim insanity as a defense for voting to empanel a commission to investigate the January 6th protest/riot/insurrection/domestic terrorist attack (pick one). But voting for this nonsense can rightly be called an act of insanity.

Why is Israel So Hated? (Redux)

As the Apostle Paul, at the beginning of Romans chapter 3 notes, “What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew…Much in every way! First of all, they have been entrusted with the very words of God.” The oral, and eventually written Word of God is an amazing testimony of God’s existence, His presence, and His power.

A Tempest in Their Teapot

There are legitimate concerns about the 2020 Election, but the smart money cannot waste time debating the outcome.  It is, and has been since November, a done deal.  The cloudiness of the election, from judicial action in Pennsylvania to inaction by the US Supreme Court and many points in between, is a factor that will rile up people who have already acquiesced to the outcome but still smell garbage.

Get Your Critical Race Claws Off My Kid!

The Obamas: America’s First Couple of Race Arson

Mrs. Obama has reason to worry about her driving age daughters being shot and killed, but not by police. According to Heather MacDonald’s best-selling book, “The War on Cops,” black Americans between the ages of 10 and 43 die of homicide at 13 times the rate of whites—killed not by the police, not by whites, but by other blacks.

NYC Cancels Columbus Day

New Yorkers don’t need the city government to attack Columbus. They need the city to reopen so that they can go back to work and earn a living again as their countrymen in Florida and other free states are now doing.

‘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.

Washington Doctor Demands “a Recount” — “of COVID Deaths”

The government had long said there were “only” 11 million illegal aliens in our nation, but academic studies place the actual number at two to three times higher. The Centers for Disease Control had maintained that the risk of contracting the coronavirus outdoors was “less than 10 percent,” but it turns out the agency made a bush-league mistake: The actual number may be less than 0.1 percent.

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.”

The Supreme Court has Taken up Residence in the Swamp

With this foray into politics, the Supreme Court inevitably became part of the swamp.  The justices are no longer scholars who understand the Constitution and its supporting documents; now they’re political players.  That’s why Supreme Court appointments have become so contentious.

How the Left Plans To Put Boots on the Ground to Subdue Middle America

Of course, white supremacists are about as common as straight, happily married women at a NOW convention; why, I’m well into middle age and I don’t know that I’ve ever met one. This isn’t to say there aren’t liberals delusional enough to believe the threat is real; that they’re detached from reality is partially why leftists are so dangerous.

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.

Bloodbaths: From Riots to Mass-Killings

Do people who loot, vandalize, start fires seem like a mentally sound group? They love destruction. Would it be that far off to say these individuals have led a violent life? Or did they simply wake-up one morning and decide to raid Foot Locker in the evening?

Where is the Congressional Republican Outrage?

There was never a shortage of members of Congress who would seek out a media camera and microphone to not just disagree with Trump but also to denigrate him and his supporters, describing him and us as racist, homophobe, misogynist, transphobe, gun nut, climate denier and criminal.  They even went so far as to impeach him and conduct a Senate trial over the words “you have to fight.”

WTF?!: Hundreds of Millions of PPP Funds Went to Chinese Businesses

The fact that the government handed out hundreds of millions of dollars to CCP companies shows just why you shouldn’t trust the government: it can’t do anything right. The PPP loans were meant to support small, American businesses. That didn’t happen; small businesses have been closing at a rapid clip.

Scott Is Everything Democrats Tell Black Boys They Can’t Be, Or, As Joe Biden Put It, “You Ain’t Black” – Tx. Dems Reject O’Connor’s Resignation.

Tim Scott represents a major threat to Democrat Party. He is a successful black American who came from humble roots, and he did not embrace the victimhood mentality. He is an example of how a black young man can overcome obstacles of his early life and achieve success by his own efforts – not government handouts.

Millennials, America’s First Failed Generation?

Millennials’ fate will depend largely upon whether they’re the progeny of wealthy families or not. Those who can depend on “the bank of mom and dad” for an interest-free loan (or a generous inheritance) will always have an advantage in procuring the best homes, jobs and school placement as entry to the upper echelon of society still largely depends on having access to the best schools and alumni networks.

FAKE HATE CRIME: Viterbo University Experiences Unnecessary Racial Animus

The left wants the supply of racist incidents to be high so that they have much about which they can complain. The problem is, that supply just isn’t there. So they make up incidents. Jussie Smollett. Bubba Wallace. This case at Viterbo. Etc. They’re all just made up. America isn’t a racist nation, however much leftists want it to be.

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.

A Convention of States Can Save the Republic

In recognition of this abuse, conservative voices are attempting a solution to the problem by virtue of a Convention of States.  This is another example of the brilliance of the founders, in that they anticipated the need for such a course correction someday, and included it in Article V.

It’s Time to Flatten the Gun Violence Curve

We have a brand-new public health crisis — gun violence.  Now that the last pandemic is dying out, President Asterisk has decreed that people shooting each other is our next pandemic.  It turns out murder is not a morality problem, it’s a health problem.

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.

Red Flags and Ghost Guns: Slow Joe’s Gun Control Diktats

Joe Biden’s executive orders are immoral, unconstitutional, and absolutely ludicrous. No crimes are committed with ghost guns. Red flag laws are a blatant attack on the 2nd Amendment. Gun control not only doesn’t work, but it actually leads to increased crime.

The Diversity Industry Has Turned the Clock Back…to 1960

Meritocracy is the solution to diversity.  Let people be the best that they can be on their own merits, and ignore the rest.   Isn’t that what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. meant when he said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character?”

The National Debt is $85,210 Per Person

Anti-White Discrimination: Oakland’s Racist UBI Program
