  • Next Election Could Decide if Washington, D.C., Becomes 51st State

    07/01/2020 4:03:18 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 54 replies ^ | July 1, 2020 | Byron York
    The drive to make Washington, D.C., a state has been a favorite of some Democrats for years. Why wouldn't it be? If enacted, a new state, formed from deepest-blue D.C., would create two new Democratic senators and one new Democratic member of the House. For a Democrat, what's not to like? But while there have been lots of D.C. statehood bills over the years, the issue has been voted on only once before. In 1993, it failed badly in the House, losing 277 to 153. Back then, moderate Democrats put their judgment before partisan interest, splitting on whether statehood was...

    Cancel culture refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. It may be an innocuous word or tweet from years ago, that through the long memory of social media can resurface, leading to public group shaming of an individual. Such shaming typically goes only one way, based on one’s politics. For others it’s just a matter of being caught in the stampede. A “Saturday Night Live” cast member, Shane Gillis, made a derogatory comment about Asians a few years ago and was fired...
  • I, Nancy Pelosi, Do Solemnly Swear

    As direct action movements, left-initiated political violence and mass street mobilization continue to roil our society, what we’re seeing now is the creation of an Overton window that moves us closer to where we’ll be mentally by the election, as our fractured body politic convulses towards November. Apart from the legitimate grievances and outrage over the death of George Floyd, this moment can also be understood as one along the continuum of the 2020 election and the partisan binary that will continue to overtake us. So in a few months when you hear people say that the election is an...
  • Democrats Will Sacrifice America to Win a Presidency

    The Dems will not allow any semblance of normalcy to return until Trump and recalcitrant Republicans in the Senate agree to bail out Democrat-run states facing fiscal insolvency. Democrat socialist policies have left states like California and Illinois with unsustainable pension obligations and exponentially growing deficits too dear for a shrinking tax base to sustain. Buying votes ain't cheap. Yet why would citizens, prudently residing in red states, acquiesce to paying for votes Democrats have bought in the past and wish to purchase in the future? They would not unless forced to. Democrat governors, in particular Newsom (Calif.), Pritzker (Ill.),...
  • Mr. President, Here's How You Stop the Democratic Scam of the Century

    Think about an election where a ballot is sent to a person regardless of eligibility or to an address that person may not live at anymore; signed by someone else; picked up and delivered by a Democratic campaign operative; and still counted. If Democrats were to get their way, that is what would happen in my home state of Nevada this June, and nationwide in the November presidential election. This is clearly a trial run by Democrats to see if they can get away with The Scam of the Century with which they have one goal in mind: to steal...

    As a nation and a society, we found ourselves not fully prepared for the sudden global pandemic of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. One of many ways that our society is struggling to keep up is for the public to understand basic concepts about medication and how to battle this new virus. We heard about the couple in Arizona who drank a fish tank cleaner designed to kill parasites in fish aquariums. This was somehow blamed on President Donald Trump — even though the wife is alleged to be a Democrat donor, not a Trump fan. There are some...

    As soon as the Bolsheviks took over Russia in October 1917, Vladimir Lenin began churning out rubles. In fact, he spent half the state's revenue on just the printing of new currency. Within a year, the ruble was worth 100,000,000 times less than it had been before the communists took over. Existing rubles, and any investment denominated in rubles, were worthless. Lenin's inflationary program was not a response to the need for an increased money supply. It was a deliberate strategy designed to eliminate money as a means of transactions and, with it, to crush capitalism. From that point on,...
  • Financial Winner From the HEROES Act: Nancy Pelosi

    The 1800-page HEROES Act was passed along party lines on Friday in the House of Representatives, without hearings, without input from any Republicans and likely without meaningful input from most Democrats. How striking is it that the HEROES Act includes the grand sum of $1,200 in aid for individuals who desperately need the funds because they lost their jobs due to the pandemic and simultaneously, with zero transparency, includes a reduction in federal income taxes over the next two years for the Speaker of the House of Representatives of an estimated $50,000? It is instructive to read the two-page summary...
  • Nancy Pelosi Declares War On The American People In Her Latest Bogus ‘Rescue Package’

    By their own standards, the House Democrats’ Round 4 “rescue package” is a flop. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set herself up to fail by instructing her caucus and surrogates to insist that Congress prioritize testing, testing, and more testing in future rounds of coronavirus response funding. At the end of the day, Democrats scrounged up a budget for those tests amounting to less than 1 percent of the $3 trillion package Pelosi introduced this week. Instead of putting their money where their mouth is, they slapped together a leftist wish list dedicated to causes unrelated to the pandemic. It is...

    An MSNBC article about the White House's early response to coronavirus ignores all of the White House's early response.In a blistering attack on President Donald Trump, MSNBCÂ’s Steve Benen accused the White House of ignoring the threat of coronavirus throughout January even though intelligence officials were warning about it. ThereÂ’s just one problem; it is an absolute lie. Well, thereÂ’s another problem actually, itÂ’s a lie that progressive propagandists have convinced millions of Americans is true. One tell that gives away the false nature of the story is how little of it is actually about the coronavirus response. In fact,...

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Loyd Pettegrew.Free market economist Frederick Hayek held forth that socialistic economic planning, regulation, and intervention pave the way to totalitarianism by building a power structure that will inevitably be seized by the most power-hungry and unscrupulous. Hayek is quick to point out that emergencies have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberties have been taken away. It is a very short and slippery slope to an authoritarian dictatorship. The USSR, and Nazi Germany labeled themselves as socialist governments. Venezuela has been transformed from a democracy to a socialist dictatorship...

    The world has not seen this dangerous of a virus since the Spanish flu of 1917. But in today's world, the press and the Democrats use it as a political football. They blame President Trump instead of the ones who are really culpable: the Chinese Communist government. American Thinker interviewed experts on China to get their opinions on who is really to blame. In looking at the Chinese government over the years, should Americans think of them as friendly, adversaries, enemies, or "frenemies"? Gordan Chang (@GordonGChang), an expert on Chinese affairs, is also a columnist, lawyer, and author of The...

    These are incredibly stupid times. That should be the whole column right there, leaving it up to you to apply that unquestionably true statement to whatever it is you’d apply it to. But it doesn’t apply to one or two things or people, it applies to everything and everyone. You’re going to find something you agree with and to hate in this column, and that’s fine. Actually, it’s good. If you can’t get pissed off at someone you largely agree with every once in a while, well, you might as well be a Democrat. But these things need to be...
  • How Will the Left 'Not Allow a Crisis Go to Waste' Next?

    Why have the Democrats in Congress decided to punish small businesses? Make no mistake, that is exactly what Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the congressional Democrats are doing in their latest politically tone-deaf move by denying funding for the small business loan program. As of last week, the program officially ran out of money, leaving millions of small business owners and their employees wondering how they’ll survive the government-mandated lockdowns. It makes you wonder why Speaker Pelosi and her colleagues would possibly risk being so out of touch with the needs of our country’s small businesses—despite small businesses being the driver...
  • Open (Save) America Now

    Our best chance at saving America is to open America. Now. Certainly, states like New York and New Jersey, must open at a slower pace than Minnesota and Iowa. But we must ground all decisions in reason and science—or politicians inebriated by power will gain more dominance by peddling fear. “Safer at home!” is chanted on social media by the Communist Party of China’s co-conspirator—the World Health Organization (WHO)—and many Americans are buying the lie—hook, line and sinker. Fear (the most irrational motivator) is causing Americans to relinquish the ability to think for themselves, or to face the genuine virus...

    Why are some leaders so reluctant to admit that in the early days of the coronavirus crisis, they were slow to realize the seriousness of the threat? That's the charge leveled against President Trump daily. Just look at the number of times various critics have said he has "blood on his hands." Trump has denied responsibility, and has argued that rather than being slow off the mark, he was actually quick to respond. There is much angry debate on that point. What is clear now is that more than a few officials around the country were slow to act. And...

    Yes, that title is a Democratic Party mantra, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t useful lessons in it for everyone. For the American people, it’s an important reminder that Democrats will seek to exploit something as horrible as the coronavirus pandemic to advance huge portions of their big-government agenda. For conservatives, it may be the best opportunity to roll back the size of government we’ve ever had because it’s been the best real-life example of the failures of massive concentrated power in history. Anyone paying attention has noticed how Democrats across the country are using this emergency to expand their...

    The details are out of Treasury now, and it looks like it isn't going to work for a large number of small business owners after all. Remember the deal the president signed to save America’s small businesses from ruin during the government’s coronavirus shutdown? The one hammered out by the Senate and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin over weeks of tense negotiation while Americans worriedly watched, hoping good news might come before a depression does? The details are out of Treasury now, and it looks like it isn’t going to work for a large number of small business owners...

    The coronavirus pandemic is bringing out the best in people – and the bad and the ugly. The best is coming from front line responders, medical personnel, and many others who put themselves at risk to save lives. Then there are President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the tireless officials and experts working around the clock to blunt the impact of the virus. Also, the many corporations pitching in to find a vaccine, manufacture safety equipment and help stricken communities in a myriad of ways. A welcome development is the Some Good News (SGN) Network on YouTube, anchored by actor...
