The anniversary of January 6th was short lived and many American's have moved on without getting all of the facts. But the reality is that the aftermath of the event is far from over. As of right now the indictments are fuzzy, encrypted platforms are still being discovered, and the group that seems to have caused the most issues just seems like a b…
 
In the last few weeks, Biden's handling of COVID cannot be ignored. While no one person should be blamed for the tragedies in a pandemic, Biden sold himself by saying he would "shut down the virus" and recent numbers show he has done anything but that. One thing is for sure in both the handling of the pandemic and the rejection of the Build Back Be…
 
There's a lot to talk about — about our president's. The media has gone into a frenzy after text messages from political figures and news correspondents were released regarding January 6th and Donald Trump. But there's a lot less to the texts than critics and the media would have you believe. Looking forward the media has people considering who cou…
 
A large amount of recent political conversations and polls are consumed by who could be in the 2024 presidential race. Is Donald Trump considering a third run for the White House? Does Joe Biden plan on running for reelection? And what happens if both of them opt out? Will a new candidate continue the policy's of their party's predecessor? It's all…
 
Harvard University Institute of Politics came out with a new poll asking young people about their thoughts on the United States. And the findings are anything but boring. A large number of young people from both sides said they think the United States is a failed or troubled Democracy overall. This just shows that people of all ages see through the…
 
The democratic party loves to use the word transform but the word alone is powerless. What the United States needs right now isn't persuasive or "feel good" langue it's actual action. Sooner or later Democrats will realize that they can't bank on people hating Trump to get them elected. That's in the past. And the present issues of our nation are c…
 
The Washington Post came out with a piece that said Biden's approval rating is at a new low. And with the direction the White House is headed, it could be getting worse. Democrats want to believe that Biden's main downfall is messaging and communication. But issues like inflation, COVID, Afghanistan, and many others are substance issues that take R…
 
Here's a basic fact: The Democratic Party's number-one priority is to pass a voting "reform" bill that would federalize elections under rules favorable to Democratic candidates. It's more important than any other part of the party agenda. But Democrats on Capitol Hill don't have the votes to pass the far-reaching voting bill known as S.1. […]…
 
When President Biden announced a bipartisan deal to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on infrastructure — the real kind, like roads and bridges and waterways — he stressed that it is extremely important that he and lawmakers be able to trust each other. Each must be as good as his or her word, Biden […]…
 
Yes, 35 House Republicans voted to create a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. And yes, some GOP senators also support the proposal. But the two top Republican leaders — Kevin McCarthy in the House and Mitch McConnell in the Senate — are solidly opposed. They have their reasons. Like: What about the […]…
 
Remember the shooting at the House Republican baseball practice just outside of Washington? A zealous Bernie Sanders supporter and Trump hater named James Hodgkinson, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, attacked a group of GOP lawmakers as they practiced for the annual Congressional Baseball Game. Representative Steve Scalise was gravely wounded. A …
 
When the CEO of Delta Airlines took a stand against the new Georgia voting law — declaring it "unacceptable" — a chorus of Americans had the following reaction: Who asked him? Why should an airline executive get involved in electoral politics? Maybe he should concentrate on…flying? Now, Delta CEO Ed Bastian is taking it from […]…
 
There's a lot to talk about — about the press. First, the White House press corps, or at least a selected group of ten reporters, delivered an embarrassing performance at President Biden's first formal news conference. There were baffling omissions, neglected follow-ups, and at least one first-class attempt at presidential flattery. All in all, not…
 
A United States senator vowing to oppose all nominees of a particular race? Could that happen in 2021? The answer is yes. It happened this week, in fact, when Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth declared she would not support any white nominees for any administration positions. (The only exceptions, Duckworth said, would be for white nominees […]…
 
All Americans hope the coronavirus pandemic ends and life can return to normal. But Democrats in Congress are trying to make what they call ‘COVID relief' permanent. Their ‘COVID relief' is in fact a series of long-held Democratic policy goals that have nothing to do with the virus, but they want to use the pandemic […]…
 
It's hard to exaggerate the anger, criticism, and vitriol directed toward then-President Trump last year for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. If for some reason you need a reminder, just search for "Trump" and "blood on his hands." But now something interesting is happening. In the last few days, among some commentators following the […]…
 
FBI Director Christopher Wray was supposed to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the state of the January 6 Capitol riot investigation. He gave the media the soundbite it wanted, but failed or refused to answer some of the senators' basic questions about the riot. And it wasn't a partisan thing. Some Republican members […]…
 
The Senate GOP leader came to a Fox News interview prepared to talk about the current president equally prepared to not talk about the former president. But Mitch McConnell ended up making news about Donald Trump anyway. What is the thinking behind McConnell's statement — less than two weeks after his scathing criticism of Trump […]…
 
It's one of the most basic questions of the Capitol riot investigation: What was the rioters' plan? What did they think was going to happen when they stormed the Capitol on January 6, as Congress certified the results of the Electoral College? There are lots of different answers — remember, thousands of people were there […]…
 
As expected, Democrats won the vote on constitutionality that began the second impeachment trial of former President Trump. Six Republicans went along with unanimous Democrats in voting that the trial is in fact constitutional. So now it is on to the substance of the case. House Democratic impeachment managers will attempt to prove that then-Presid…
 
The impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is beginning with a deep divide among senators. Nearly all Republicans believe it is unconstitutional to try an ex-president. All Democrats disagree. Democrats point to a majority of law professors who agree with them — no surprise there — while some conservative scholars and jurists support th…
 
New White House press secretary Jen Psaki promised to bring “truth and transparency back to the briefing room.” President Biden promised to be guided by science in his decisions regarding the COVID pandemic. Now both of those vows are being put to the test on the question of reopening schools. This week, Biden’s new CDC […]…
 
There were roughly 25,000 National Guard members in Washington for the inauguration of President Joe Biden. The deployment was in large part an overreaction to the Capitol riot of January 6. But now, 5,000 are still here. The inauguration was two weeks ago, it went off without incident, and there is no need for troops […]…
 
Just look at what happened Tuesday night in, of all places, a Zoom meeting of the San Francisco School Board. In that meeting, members voted to strip the names of American historical figures — George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and even California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein — from schools in San Francisco. A removal […]…
 
The new Biden administration says it must act quickly, with a flurry of executive orders, because the nation is experiencing not one, not two, not three, but four crises. “We face four overlapping and compounding crises,” said new chief of staff Ron Klain. “The COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a […]…
 
President Trump will become former President Trump tomorrow. When Joe Biden takes office, Democrats will control the White House, the House, and the Senate. An ambitious agenda lies ahead for the new Democratic administration. And yet there are signs that some Democrats' obsession with Donald Trump — the condition known as Trump Derangement Syndrom…
 
Donald Trump is now the only president ever impeached twice. Yes, that says a lot about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, and the Democratic Party's, obsessive quest to remove him from office. But the impeachment is also the result of a disastrous turn in Trump's presidency since the November 3 election. The turn was so consequential […]…
 
Democrats started trying to remove President Trump from office before he entered office. Now they are proposing to remove him from office after he leaves office. How do you remove an ex-president? He's already gone. That is the bizarre question posed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's obsessive quest to re-impeach Donald Trump with just a […]…
 
There are some Republicans in Washington who wish inauguration day were today, or tomorrow — or yesterday. They supported President Trump and appreciated his significant accomplishments, but now they are more than ready to move on from what has become a disastrous end to the Trump presidency. The fact is, though, the president's term lasts […]…
 
It's possible to have two entirely different but entirely compatible reactions to accounts of President Trump's Saturday phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. First, the president clearly tried to press Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to flip Georgia from Biden to Trump. Even though Trump obviously believes the phantom…
 
Democrats and their allies in the press spent the last four years accusing President Trump of being soft on Russia. And worse: Some called the president a Russian asset, a traitor, Putin's patsy, and much, much more. It was all BS, because behind the rhetoric was the stark reality that Trump, and his administration, have […]…
 
House Democratic leaders are trying to keep the espionage scandal surrounding Intelligence Committee member Rep. Eric Swalwell under tight control. But it's going to be an uphill battle. Republicans are pushing harder and harder to learn more about Swalwell's relationship with Chinese spy Christine Fang. And after an FBI briefing for GOP leader Rep…
 
There's been a lot of commentary in recent days about President Trump, the election, and martial law. It is unclear what the president himself thinks about it — he tweeted that reports were "fake news" and "knowingly bad reporting" — but it is clear that his former national security adviser, retired General Michael Flynn, is […]…
 
The Electoral College has voted to elect Joe Biden president. That is done. But there is one more step in the process. On January 6, Congress will officially ratify the Electoral College vote and declare Biden the president-elect. Now, though, there is talk that some House Republicans will try to disrupt the ceremony. The plan, […]…
 
After months of stonewalling Trump efforts to pass targeted, short-term relief for millions of Americans suffering in the pandemic, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has changed her mind. What she blocked before is now OK. Why? Because, Pelosi explained, there's a new president and a vaccine on the way. Huh? Didn't the absence of a vaccine […]…
 
Some in the media knew the story of the trip before Trump even flew to Valdosta, Georgia on Saturday. The president would rant about election results and in the process undermine purpose of trip — to campaign for Republican Senators Kelly and David Perdue. News accounts, even the ones published after Trump's speech, reflected those […]…
 
Wednesday witnessed one of the most extraordinary events in recent political history. With two critical Senate races underway in Georgia — with Republican control of the Senate at stake — two prominent allies of a Republican president traveled to the state to urge voters not to vote for Republican candidates.…
 
Attorney General William Barr has appointed John Durham as special counsel investigating the Trump-Russia investigation. Durham's new status will make it harder for Biden to fire him. It also clears the way for a public report. And that means we will learn more about the FBI's effort to target the 2016 Trump campaign. People who […]…
 
Remember the dossier? Many journalists (not to mention the FBI) worked hard to confirm its allegations against Donald Trump. They failed miserably. But even then, some Democrats, and their allies in the press, refused to admit the dossier was BS. Instead, they argued that since it had not been proven untrue, it must be true. […]…
