A Wall Street Journal Poll just revealed a deeply troubling trend for those of us who believe in the traditional values that shaped America's founding and our national character. It shows a significant decline in the importance of Patriotism, Religious Faith & Family Values. This disintegration can be traced to the woke left's relentless attack on the "American Way" and pushing for radical change in the name of diversity & inclusion.
We are now on to a brand new round of Victims: The Democrat politician who's thrown out of office for breaking the rules of the chamber in which they serve. They have quickly supplanted the real victims of Nashville's Covenant School massacre that left six dead, including three children. Kamala Harris even made a hastily-arranged Good Friday trip to Tennessee to give an angry, partisan sermon attacking Republicans – she couldn't be bothered to meet with the families slaughtered by a trans shooter.
After the Texas House General Investigating Committee received a formal complaint that State Rep. Brian Slaton has had an inappropriate relationship with an intern, some of his fellow State Legislators are saying enough is enough. Tweeted one earlier this morning: "What’s most troubling about the events of this story is that his behavior appears to be predatory. He needs to resign. Now!"
This part is not for the based among you. You already know. It is for the not-yet-based who look at this all and sense something is wrong but are unable to articulate it. Let me help. The left never attacks on substance. It instead labels any legitimate exercise of power by Republicans as a moral crisis. Argue about the facts regarding guns? No, it’s all “You want to murder children!”
It’s not a nice thing to say, and it’s not something I relish saying, but you can only do so much to protect people from themselves. You can keep bad people away from good ones, but sooner or later if they’re really intent on being around bad people and things, they will find a way to do it. When that happens, you have to throw up your hands and walk away – and let them deal with the consequences of who they voted for.
We are in a Jacobin Revolution of the sort that in 1793-94 nearly destroyed France. And things are getting scary -- The Democratic Party vanished sometime in 2020 -- Hard-left ideologues absorbed it. They were bent on radically altering, or hijacking, existing institutions to force radical, equality-of-result agendas that otherwise do not earn majority support.
We're at the point now where The Left has found itself having to make common cause with freaks – literally – who want kids to watch drag queens and castrate children to cater to their Chardonnay-guzzling mommies’ delusions. Normals are recoiling instead of shrugging – but Hide & Watch... pretty soon one of these pervs will come flat out and say what is so far unsaid. We need to crush them.
All lawyers are ethically required to avoid even the appearance of impropriety in their professional conduct. So a prosecutor who campaigned on finding a way to convict a man – let alone a former President who's currently running for President – of unknown & yet to be discovered crimes is not a close ethical call. New York County's Alvin Bragg will yammer about no one being above the law, but the indictment of Donald Trump will be deemed buffoonery – at its finest.
Take a quick look back to the 2010 Legislative Session – when a Texas House Committee was considering expanding gambling in Texas. Both Gov. Rick Perry and his Democrat opponent Bill White said they were against it. So why didn't Texas go for it then? After all, gambling & lotteries are nothing more than government selling false hope – and, then there’s always organized crime that shows up wherever there’s gambling.
Joe Biden ran in 2020 on the campaign slogan “Build Back Better.” But with his tax, spending and regulatory policies all hamstringing the economy, a more accurate slogan would be “Reduce Economic Growth.” What's the worst of President Biden’s latest proposed tax increases? It’s hard to say – there are so many strong candidates. Much of Mr. Biden's tax increase burdens are on U.S. workers.
Is the United States economically capable or politically unified or socially stable enough to wage a huge proxy war on the frontiers of a nuclear Russia? Ukrainians, Europeans, and many Americans are defining a Ukrainian victory as the complete expulsion of all Russians – or as a Ukrainian National Security Chief said, the war ends with Ukrainian tanks in Red Square. But mysteries remain about such ambitious agendas.
We keep hearing that "a vibrant news media is essential to a vibrant democracy," but we're not a "democracy" – and the regime media is trash. It's as useful as a thong on Chris Christie, and is comprised of a few mostly dull people who have little life experience not involving daddy’s money – or a keyboard. Expecting it to change is like expecting the sun to pop up in the west. It can’t. It won’t.
"We cannot prioritize intervention in an escalating foreign war over the defense of our own homeland, especially as tens of thousands of Americans are dying every year from narcotics smuggled across our open border and our weapons arsenals critical for our own security are rapidly being depleted."
Here is what's really telling. The Communist Party of America put out a press release celebrating the demise of "Right to Work" in Michigan. They proudly note, correctly, that Michigan's now the 1st State in more than half a century to turn back the clock and force union chains on workers. Most states have moved in the opposite direction. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer – a stooge of the unions – will sign the bill into law.
The idea is that certain woke-liberal people, or their family members, will someday end up in a position to help the family and/or their friends. It’s a small price to pay, but... the people who literally write the rules are the same ones who benefit the most from them. So, do you really expect them to call it out for what it is? Of course not. Never lose sight of what it truly is: perfectly legal corruption.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' written statement to Tucker Carlson heard around the world earlier this week on the Russia-Ukraine war has caused nothing short of a full-scale meltdown from the arrogant, consistently wrong-thinking, military-industrial complex-addled band of bipartisan dunderheads who collectively comprise the American ruling class's foreign policy "blob."
Ron DeSantis came out against our current blank check n’ hack cliches Ukraine policy, stating the indisputable truth that Ukraine's not a vital U.S. interest worthy of risking World War III with Russia. The next day he was proven right when a Russian SU-27 knocked a U.S. Reaper Drone into the Black Sea. Of course all the right GOP establishment people got really mad at DeSantis for saying something we all need to be against.
Three days before Silicon Valley Bank collapsed, Joe Biden's Treasury Sect. Janet Yellen cautioned that "climate change" puts the banking industry at risk. From la-la land, she speculated future storms & tornadoes could diminish the value of a banks' assets. With 98% of all 2020 political contributions from people working at internet companies going to Democrats, it's no surprise they're offering bailouts – whether they use that word or not.
The primary concern of the people who ran the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) -- the bank that just went bust -- was not banking. Nor was it making money for the bank's shareholders or safeguarding the funds of its depositors. Their primary concern was social activism -- LGBTQIA+, DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion), ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance), and climate change.
The Republican race is not the only game in town. There is a lot of action in 2024 besides Trump, DeSantis, and the Asterisks. The Dems have their own nomination race, and there are a bunch of Senate showdowns.
