    New Twitter owner Elon Musk is vowing to reform the social media platform. "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," Musk said in a statement after his $44 billion bid to buy the company was accepted. Many, many conservatives hope Musk succeeds. But as much as Twitter needs freer speech, it also needs to tell the world precisely what it has been doing for the last few years. That is why it should conduct a full and comprehensive audit of all...

    Most of us see President Joe Biden’s falling job approval rating as a measure of his declining popularity. But for every candidate, Democrat or Republican, running for the House or Senate this year, Biden’s numbers mean political life or death. That is because the president’s job approval rating is an extraordinarily important factor in the upcoming midterm elections. Biden’s is low and going lower. A recent Pew poll puts Biden at 41% approval, versus 56% disapproval. Those results are very close to the RealClearPolitics average of several polls, which has Biden at 41.4% approval and 54.7% disapproval. If those results...

    Bill Clinton used to say that all elections are about the future. It's true. Voters want to know what candidates will do in office -- how they will fix problems -- and if they can be trusted to handle the unexpected developments the future brings. But now, in Washington, we have significant elements of both major parties obsessed with the past. One party wants to make the upcoming midterm elections about the 2020 presidential election, and the other party wants to make the elections about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. It's a crazy situation. Start with the Democrats, the party...

    For the last year, we've heard one commentator after another tell us that American democracy is in crisis. The source of that crisis, we are told, is a hard core of the Republican Party that believes the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump and that Joe Biden, therefore, is not a legitimate president. It's true that a significant number of Americans do not accept the results of the election. But is that something new, as the Trump-focused analyses would have us believe? No, it is not. Yes, these days, it is Republicans who doubt the results of a presidential...
  • Byron York's Daily Memo: The Biden White House dumpster fire

    THE BIDEN WHITE HOUSE DUMPSTER FIRE. President Joe Biden's plunging public approval rating isn't his problem. It is a reflection of his problem.Biden has scheduled a big ceremony today to sign the bipartisan infrastructure bill, the $1.2 trillion measure passed after months of wrangling in Congress. The public is well aware of it. And yet, in a new Washington Post poll , taken after the bill's passage, Biden's job approval rating has hit a new low — just 38% among registered voters, versus 57% who disapprove. So much for those Democrats who thought passing a big bill would boost Biden's...

    George Soros Backs New Media Firm to Fight Disinformation Called “Good Information Inc.” Conservatives are calling out Soros for this clearly "Orwellian" move. Tell me this isn’t the most purely “Orwellian” thing you’ve ever heard… According to Axios, George Soros is backing a new media firm in a move to help combat disinformation. The working name of this group? “Good Information Inc.” See, that’s how you know you can trust it, because it has “good information” in the title… Clearly this is just Soros being the great arbiter of truth that he is, right?..

    George W. Bush reaffirmed his status as garbage last week, for those few cons still in doubt. Bush got up on the 9/11 anniversary and proceeded to demonstrate, again, the essentiality of class in American society. Not “class” in the sense that he is classy; Bush, though it was very important to him to front that he has such class, in fact, has none. No, the “class” that is important to W is social class. He once again chose his country club pals over you and compounded it by issuing a disgusting blood libel against you. That’s his “thank you”...

    New York Times blowhard economist Paul Krugman continues to brazenly contradict himself with impunity. The Washington Examiner’s chief political correspondent Byron York has finally had enough. In his Dec. 1 Daily Memo, York ripped apart Krugman’s latest commentary propagandizing that former Vice President Joe Biden will be “the first modern U.S. president trying to govern in the face of an opposition that refuses to accept his legitimacy.” As York summarized: “Krugman seemed to anticipate that some would respond that some Democrats refused to accept Donald Trump's legitimacy. But that never happened, Krugman claimed. ‘And no, Democrats never said Donald Trump...

    Pennsylvania looks to be a big player in the 2020 election. Just like in 2016, when Trump won the state and went on to win the election. The election nobody thought he’d win? You remember? Welp, sounds like there is a hidden group of supporters in the state: Allegheny County councilman in Pennsylvania: 'I'm an elected official. I have had at least a dozen Democratic elected officials tell me that they are voting for Trump... but as Democratic elected officials they can't come out and say it.'

    Byron York, a Washington Examiner columnist spoke to Laura Ingraham on Wednesday about how the investigators came to realize that the person driving the events of ‘Ukraine Investigation’ wasn’t the so-called whistleblower, but none other than Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. In his new book, “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump“, Byron York reveals the details behind the House and Senate hearings on the Ukraine investigation. “If you remember early on in the Ukraine Investigation, the Democrats said they wanted the whistleblower to testify and then they changed their mind and they didn’t want the whistleblower to testify,”...

    The Federalist ^ | September 8, 2020 | Mollie Hemmingway
    New book shows how Lt. Col. Alex Vindman was the real instigator of the Ukraine investigation that formed the pretext for Democrats' impeachment of President Trump. The most interesting thing about Byron York’s exhaustively reported and richly detailed new impeachment book, “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump,” is that the whistleblower who filed the official complaint that got impeachment rolling isn’t ever identified.It turns out that the heated discussion over the whistleblower, who was previously identified by Real Clear Investigations as the CIA’s Eric Ciaramella, was a diversion from allowing the American people to understand who was...

    What do George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant, Father Junipero Serra and Christopher Columbus have in common? None were Confederate generals, and yet all have had their statues torn down by mobs in the last few days -- or, in the case of Roosevelt, had New York's Museum of Natural History announce that a Roosevelt statue at the museum's entrance will soon be removed. The mobs ripped down statues in Portland, Oregon, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and several other cities without any fear of police interference. The police might as well have been defunded, for all they did...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 29, 2020 | Byron York
    WHO WILL BE FIRST TO ASK JOE BIDEN THE TARA READE QUESTION? It's more than a little amazing that it hasn't happened yet. There is growing corroboration behind Reade's accusation that then-Sen. Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993, when Reade worked in Biden's office. We now have accounts that by the mid-1990s, Reade told her brother, her mother, a friend, a next-door neighbor, and another friend about the incident. We also have the tape of the 1993 Larry King program in which a woman, whom Reade says was her mother, called to talk about her daughter's issues with a...

    Joe Biden was sworn into the United States Senate on Jan. 3, 1973. He remained in the Senate until Jan. 15, 2009 -- a span of 36 years. If history is any guide, that alone is a disqualifier in Biden's quest for the White House. What does 36 years in the Senate say about a politician? It says he is a senator -- not a president. So the first reason Biden will not become president is that no one who served 36 years in the Senate has ever become president. No one who served 30 years in the Senate has...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 26, 2020 | Byron York
    Members of the Trump defense team saw their two-hour presentation Saturday as a preview of coming attractions — a way to give senators a sense of the president's defense while also suggesting there is much more to come when the impeachment trial resumes Monday. They were also acutely aware that, after 23 hours of the Democratic case against the president made over the course of three days, many senators were just tired. Even if the first day of presentation had not come on a low-rating Saturday, Republicans would have stayed away from forcing senators into another late night. Lawmakers were...

    The new report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is an absolutely damning indictment of the Steele dossier. The dossier, compiled by the former British spy Christopher Steele during the 2016 campaign, was a collection of damaging and unfounded rumors about candidate Donald Trump. It was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, and overseen by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. It was never verified, and some of it was laughably far-fetched from the very beginning. Still, the dossier's tales were taken seriously by officials in the highest ranks of the FBI --...

    The great debate about whether the FBI spied on the Trump campaign continues. The question is why there is still any argument. The newly-released report from Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz shows that by any definition the FBI did indeed spy. The proof is in the details of the report. In addition to the much-discussed wiretap of Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, Horowitz discussed the bureau's use of what is called a CHS -- a confidential human source, or, in more common terms, an informant, and a UCE -- an undercover employee, or a secret agent, to...
