    Working-class Americans are paying a heavy price for their elites’ moral posturing. As gasoline prices in the US continue to surge to an unprecedented $7 a gallon in some places, President Joe Biden seems more interested in finding someone to blame than mitigating the problem. ‘Make no mistake, inflation is largely the fault of [Russian president Vladimir] Putin’, the president said on Friday at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference. The president then cited a ‘fact checker’ in the New York Times and a Washington Post op-ed to counter anyone daring to lay the blame for skyrocketing prices at the...
  • Commentary: What’s behind Putin’s arrogance and gumption?

    Vladimir Putin has massed roughly 100,000 troops on Russia’s border with Ukraine and issued a list of unreasonable demands to the United States and NATO. Last week, President Joe Biden infamously admitted he expects Putin to send troops over the border. Time is always on the Russian leader’s side. Putin’s dictatorship has overlapped five American presidents. He reportedly told then-President George W. Bush in 2008, “Ukraine is not even a country. Part of its territory is in Eastern Europe and the greater part was given to us.” Putin recently deployed forces to Kazakhstan, ostensibly to quell anti-government protests in the...

    Chaos will reign as the future upends the past. Chaos doesn’t lend itself to prediction.Stupidity, arrogance, and evil ultimately destroy themselves, but their rampage was unabated in 2021. A group of stupid, arrogant, and evil people are using a virus and its variants to shepherd the world into a scheme of totalitarian global governance. This was conspiracy theory when the virus first surfaced; now it’s nakedly obvious reality. The one redeeming feature of the year was that more people saw the light. The self-impressed and self-anointed rule not by claim of divine right, but by claim of superior intelligence and...

    CommentaryMuch of the world is having an enlightening moment with China.Recall that China began the last decade by positioning itself as a global benefactor. Its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) was supposed to be a beneficial foreign aid and development program. Other economic and cultural outreach efforts supplied nations with financing and cultural exchanges that have served Beijing well.The Shine Is OffBut foreign aid debt traps and spyware scandals certainly took some of the shine off China’s global reputation.

    Alec Baldwin returned to somewhat normal Twitter behavior this week for the first time since an on-set shooting he was involved in left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead. Baldwin issued a statement the day after the incident noting that he is cooperating with authorities as they investigate and offered his condolences to Hutchins’ family. Since then, he was completely silent on social media as he and his wife Hilaria traveled to New England. On Saturday, Baldwin seemingly returned to business as usual on social media, first by complimenting the Halloween costume of actor and comedian Mario Cantone. He then retweeted a...

    ROME (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived in Italy for a Group of 20 meeting on Friday with a stark warning: modern civilization could soon lie in ruins like ancient Rome if world leaders don’t act to curb climate change. Johnson has one big goal at the G-20 gathering: to persuade the leaders of the world’s biggest economies to put their money where their mouth is at the U.N. climate summit in Scotland that starts Sunday. Johnson will deploy his ebullience and his — admittedly divisive — charm to try to extract cash and carbon-cutting commitments from the...

    President Biden has been annoyed with the American press asking questions that are not “on point” during recent setups with foreign leaders in the White House, press secretary Jen Psaki admitted Monday. On Friday, questions were raised after Biden seemingly took a swipe at the US press during a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi, saying the India press is “much better behaved” than the US press corps. “I think, with your permission, you could not answer questions because they won’t ask any questions on point,” he said. That followed Biden snubbing the American press corps when he declined...

    There is “hubris,” and then there’s “chutzpah.” I don’t know which one we should accuse San Francisco Mayor London Breed of being guilty of after she was caught not wearing a mask while partying at a nightclub with the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza.It’s what she said in her defense that’s so incredible.“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing, Breed said, trying to dismiss accusations that she had shirked city rules,” according to KPIX.London Breed, mayor of San Francisco, the first US city to...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) claims she will match campaign donations "dollar-for-dollar." Since she is wealthy enough to fund her own campaign without donations this seems a way of demonstrating her own financial commitment to her reelection. The problem is, her promise is false. Campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show no matching contributions from her. Pelosi insists that her promise is not false, that her contribution "is an in-kind donation consisting my day-to-day work in Congress. Yes, I do receive as salary as a member of Congress, but this salary is far below the value...

That being said, it brings to mind that the ‘Grand Master of Nursing Homes’, Andrew Cuomo, is now in deep doo-doo with his own party and the fawning news media. This pompous # used the pandemic to promote himself as being the be-all and end-all of everything COVID virus. He even wrote a book touting how well he did fighting the virus. Cuomo,...

    Adam Townsend had a great podcast interview with journalist Lee Smith last week, and for the first time Smith eloquently hit on something CTH has discussed for several years. The “elites” writ large are so open in their current proclamations of being beyond reach, because they want us to know their power removes them from any accountability. Often we see people ask ‘why are they so openly admitting to their wrongdoing’? Within the answer I have written frequently ‘they simply do not care’… It is not a sense of boundless hypocrisy that drives them to showcase their disconnect, the disconnect...

    Ordered to vacate the corridors of the Capitol building after Rep. Will Keating (D-MA) complained that he saw a couple of the National Guard troops at a Dunkin Donuts “without wearing the masks mandated by President Biden,” former President Donald Trump’s offer to let them hang out at his DC hotel incited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) to add another charge to her impeachment case against him. “Mr. Trump is no longer in charge of the federal government,” Pelosi ranted. “He has no authority to offer accommodations of any sort to these troops. His doing so is further proof of...

    Absolutely arrogant. For Timothy P. Schmalz, an Ontario-based sculptor, that’s really the only way to describe the renewed push to tear down statues that commemorate people who are now deemed out of step with modern morals. When a Confederate figure gets toppled in the U.S., or a prime minister who was part of brutal treatment of Indigenous people is destroyed in Canada, it says more than just disagreeing, Mr. Schmalz said. It’s a claim that we would have known better, acted otherwise. And that’s the hubris. “When one destroys or puts a Confederate statue in a museum, out of sight,...

    The New York Times has been forced to issue a correction after drawing outrage over a tweet proclaiming that the news media is responsible for 'declaring' the nation's next president. 'The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media. The broadcast networks and cable news outlets have vowed to be prudent. Here's how it will work,' the Times tweeted on Tuesday. The tweet linked to an article explaining how the media will report election results. The poorly worded tweet drew immediate backlash and accusations that the newspaper was anointing itself as...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that if she steps down now, President Obama would not be able to appoint an acceptable replacement. Ginsburg, who reiterated that she has no imminent plans to retire, told Elle that it would be next to impossible for the Senate to confirm a new justice to the court who she would approve of. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court," she...
