The world despises Iran and now finally accepts it cannot be appeased. Arab nations neither want Gazan refugees anywhere near them nor their terrorists whom Gazans one-time voted into power. -- Even Europe abhors Hamas's precivilizational butchery of Israeli civilians.
The idea that the United States should import “Palestinian refugees” is being floated by a particularly dense member of “The Squad” – fire alarm enthusiast and emergency exit-challenged New York Democrat Jamaal Bowman. This is insane. Absolutely not. There's no way to vet any potential refugees, and it should be the Arab world’s responsibility to help out – not ours.
Ever since the Holocaust, the world has vowed "Never Again" – yet today's United Nations is not up to keeping that promise. The U.N.'s Secretary General did condemn Hamas' terror attack, but is also aggressively criticizing Israel's impending invasion of Gaza to rout out Hamas. But wait! After becoming president, Joe Biden told the U.N. that the U.S. is "back at the table," and ready to pursue "relentless diplomacy." Will he?
Perhaps you've heard the news that ACT scores have fallen now for the 6th straight year, indicating our nation's High Schoolers are less equipped for a job or college than at any time in three decades. But why isn't anyone in our $800 billion education bureaucracy sounding the alarm or declaring this a national emergency? It puts our national security, our technological superiority, and our economic prosperity in grave danger.
Half the 3rd World is now waltzing across our Southern Border, and how do you think it's going to end? Think it ends well? Does that seem like a smart idea? Of course not, which explains why Joe Biden and the Democrats are doing it. Our leftist elite actually supports our enemies. Meanwhile, the media and Democrats are doing everything they can to neuter our ability to respond.
One unexpected blowback from the medieval Hamas's barbaric murdering of 100s of Israeli civilians is the revelation of current global amorality. More than 20 Harvard University politics groups pledged their support to Hamas' murderers – to the utter silence of Harvard President Claudine Gay. Americans knew higher education practiced racist admission policies, and promoted racially segregated dorms and graduations – but de facto destroying the 1st Amendment?
President Joe Biden solemnly declares that he stands with Israel against the terrorists. Great – but his actions in the White House have facilitated these homicidal attacks by financing our enemies. We've known for 50 years that terrorist organizations like Hamas are primarily financed with petrodollars. Yet Biden's war on American energy started on Day 1, and his policies have gotten worse every month ever since.
America's renters -- more than one-third of the nation's households -- are in for trouble. Left-wing politicians are demanding rent regulation from coast to coast. Wherever it is adopted, the result will be a disastrous reduction in the rental housing supply, leaving renters desperate for places to live. -- New York City is the poster child for the failures of rent regulation. The U.S. Supreme Court is currently mulling a challenge to the constitutionality of the city's rent regime.
Hypocrisy is always in abundance with politicians in the D.C. swamp, yet Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) battle to ban e-cigarette takes hypocrisy to a new level. In the name of protecting children, he has targeted a vaping product called Elf Bar for a possible government ban.
Chaos is obviously OK with the inhabitants of the Democrat-run big cities. I know that because they keep electing people who make their cities worse. I’m supposed to be outraged and upset by this, but my caring bandwidth is limited – I can only care about so much, and what I can't care about is the plight that Democrat Blue Voters have placed themselves in.
Something is happening in the United States. Apparently Joe Biden and the Democrats see some unstated advantage in destroying U.S. Immigration Law and welcoming in would-be new constituents – 8+million illegal immigrants have entered the U.S. by the deliberate erasure of the Southern Border. And the more the millions arrive, the more Biden and his Homeland Security director flat-out lie that "the border is secure."
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich had some pretty strong words after Kevin McCarthy was ousted as Speaker by his own party members. He called the eight Republicans behind the effort "traitors," and said all of them "should be primaried" and "be driven out of public life. We ought to be focusing on Biden, we ought to be focusing on the economy, we ought to be focusing on the border."
We have a small group of Republicans doing what liberals do best – they look for whom to blame. You would think that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was personally responsible for $33 trillion in national debt and a $2.2 trillion deficit. But, in fact the allegation that he betrayed his party and colleagues by not going to budget war and shutting down the government is a grand distortion.
Paying with plastic has become sort of an American Pastime – in fact, it's become so popular and convenient that the numbers show there are now multiple more Credit & Debit Cards than there are adults in the United States. While they've help expand retailers' sales, convenience stores, restaurants, merchants & online services hate paying the fees – so they're asking Congress to "fix it."
Maybe you too started off thinking politics was an area where the best & brightest went – where Ideas & Ideals mattered more than anything else. Then you started to pay closer attention, and realized no one is as pure as they claim to be. I thought for a few days about whether or not to write this, but I feel like I have to. It’ll probably make a lot of people angry.
Most Americans understandably favor the Ukrainian resistance against Russian President Vladimir Putin's naked 2022 aggression. -- Yet for Ukraine to break the current deadlock -- our generation's Verdun with perhaps 600,000 combined casualties so far -- and "win" the war, it apparently must have the military wherewithal to hit targets inside Russia.
Recently I wrote about Mesha Mainor, who represents a deep blue district in Atlanta in the Georgia state legislature, announcing that she is switching parties and becoming a Republican. -- Mainor specifically noted her frustration with the Democratic Party in its opposition to improving education through parental choice and ongoing Democratic weakness in building strong law enforcement.
It may be coincidental, or not, that the announcement of Robert Murdoch's stepping down as Fox News Corp's chairman coincides with the release this week of the book "The Fall: The End of the Murdoch Empire," which predicts the end of the network. Fox's critics may wish so, but I'm doubtful. They've been predicting and hoping for Fox's demise since it was launched in 1996.
President Joe Biden – you have to wonder if he does or says something because he’s a liar, or because he’s genuinely stupid. “Bidenomics” isn’t designed to make your life better – it makes you suffer, dependent, and look to the government for help. Now we have to add a 3rd option: Senile. Let's look at the safest bet here... it’s a combination of all three.
There's a huge difference between true caring, and indignant self-righteousness. It's a fact many of the mayors of "Sanctuary Cities" across America are learning. Their once holier-than-thou attitudes have now dissipated into whining. Their smugness has been replaced with poor me syndrome. They are beginning to understand the full weight of the #BidenBorderCrisis.
