From the President of the United States to the Speaker of the House: “Dear Madame Speaker. Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American […]

If there’s one thing that can be said about Elizabeth Warren declaring her intent to run for the presidency, it’s that there doesn’t seem to be a great deal of enthusiasm among Democrats about it. Similarly, Bernie Sanders’ presidential plans don’t seem to raise anybody’s heart rate… Nor does Joe Biden’s. The artificial Hispanic, Beto […]

A while ago I ran a post saying that France and the yellow jacket movement was the canary in the coal mine for the rest of the world, including these United States. Today, I observe Glen Reynolds pretty much making the same points I did and expanding on them. “But the New Class isn’t limited […]

The reporter, […]

The Democrats are still demanding government be open the before they talk about funding the wall. They sound like Wimpy from the Popeye cartoons. “I’ll gladly pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today.” You know, since the Democrats have pulled this nonsense repeatedly over the years, maybe the better picture to paint is this one: […]

Kevin McCarthy. The moment his name came up for Republican leader in the House, I was suspicious. His “teamwork”, we will call it, with Paul Ryan is one major reason why. Remember Paul Ryan kept telling the president that he didn’t have the votes for the wall, and when it came down to it… he […]

From an article in The Federalist today… That brings us to the final point of comparison. Britain’s Telegraph recently reported that UK schools are teaching British children that “Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods” and that “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders.” You read that right. In the span of […]

The New York Times is reporting, via Last Refuge, that Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is “cancer free:” U.S. Media Really, Really, R.E.A.L.L.Y. Need Everyone to Know that Justice Ginsberg is Healthy… Reax, Sundance “The more he spoke of his honor, the faster we counted the spoons“… That’s the first sense that comes to mind […]

According to a report at the Michigan Star: A Change.org petition calling for the impeachment of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13) already has close to 160,000 signatures. “This woman is an anti-Semite, a war mongering hate filled Palestinian who has vowed to try and destroy our constitutional rights, hates America, hates American citizens,” the petition states. […]

Let me start this out by saying that there is only one reason why the Democrats in Congress are putting up such a stink about putting up the rest of the wall on the Mexican border. It’s because they hate Donald Trump, because he is a check on their power. The Democrats know that their […]

So, we’re 20 days into this supposed government shutdown. And the funny part is the world hasn’t ended yet. Of course, this runs precisely contrary to the wailing and gnashing of teeth coming from Democrats of late. The fact of the matter is what we’re dealing with is a number of governmental agencies which we […]

No, Mr. President. Do not open the government until such time as the Democrats back down and the wall is fully funded. I will remind you what happened to President Bush when he compromised with Democrats on promises that they would deal with his concerns at the time. He went against his pledge for no […]

A few things that crossed my mind today… If there are as is claimed, 63 genders, why is it the Golden globes only have male and female categories? Am I the only one who has noticed that after it hasn’t snowed for a long period of time, people forget how to drive in slippery weather? […]
