  • Squishy Republicans Want Trump to Go Away

    05/23/2022 4:29:55 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 35 replies ^ | May 23, 2022 | Will Alexander
    Political psychopaths who jerry-rigged scraps from Trump’s unorthodox style to create the illusion of the most hideous, racist, misogynist, homophobic, Putin-loving, Hitlerian monster that ever lived, have convinced squishy Republicans that the real Donald Trump shouldn’t run in 2024. “This is one of the greatest political scandals in history,” Trump told Fox News on Saturday about Hillary Clinton being the likely mastermind behind the Russian Collusion hoax. “For three years, I had to fight her off and fight those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back. … Where do I get my reputation back?” But Russian...
  • Will the 'Great Replacement' Smear Work?

    05/23/2022 4:17:37 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | May 23, 2022 | Scott Morefield
    The actions and written motivations of an evil, crazed mass shooter in Buffalo, New York earlier this month has forced the purportedly white nationalist phrase “Great Replacement Theory” to the forefront of the public consciousness. Ever true to form, the political left sees this as an opportunity to tarnish the right with the “white nationalist” label, seizing on aspects of the conspiracy theory that on the surface, if twisted enough, might seem remotely like things they’ve heard Fox News host Tucker Carlson and other conservative media and politicians say. It’s completely dishonest, of course, but when has the left ever...
  • Democrats Sure Are ‘Historic!’

    One thing Democrats in the media sure know how to do is beat a word to death, and they do so collectively. In 2000, when candidate George W. Bush announced his selection of Dick Cheney as his Vice-Presidential running mate, “gravitas” was the word of the day. There wasn’t a news outlet or reporter who didn’t spend the next week belching out “gravitas” to describe why Cheney was picked, with the implication being Bush was too stupid and needed someone smart on the ticket with him. Reporters uniformly used it to death without really ever having used it before –...
  • Lamentations About Redistricting Ending Democracy Prove Hypocritical – and Wrong

    Masks were necessary, especially in schools, to prevent mass deaths. Or so we were told, at great and tedious length -- until suddenly, in the last 10 days, they weren't. The Democratic governors of Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut and California followed the lead of the newly installed Republican governor of Virginia and revoked mask mandates. Or until, if I may say so, my Washington Examiner column last week titled "Returning to normalcy on school masks." Let's pivot now to another subject on which liberal commentators were raising alarms. Getting rid of gerrymandering, they claimed, was necessary to preserve democracy and...
  • Keep an Eye on Hillary

    Washington -- Last week, while reading The Wall Street Journal, I came across an op-ed piece that for a moment led me to believe that the sober and serious Journal was opening a comics section. Why not? If the Journal executes "the funnies" as competently as it covers serious news, I can see it earning a Pulitzer Prize for its comics page. It would be a first for the Pulitzer Prize committee, but, well, in this day and age, there is a first time for almost everything. The piece I have in mind was written by Douglas Schoen and Andrew...
  • How the Left Uses Fear to Control Your Life

    01/18/2022 4:03:38 AM PST · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | January 18, 2022 | Oliver North and David Goetsch
    In our book "We Didn't Fight for Socialism," we warn of the left's overriding goal to control every aspect of our lives. The constitutional freedoms guaranteed all Americans are anathema to leftists. They want to control the government and use the government to control us. Their favorite tactic is fearmongering, creating panic and using it to convince Americans to give up their freedoms for the sake of security. Rahm Emanuel, the quintessential leftist and chief of staff for President Barack Obama, made no secret of the socialist's nefarious methods when he said: "You never want a serious crisis to go...
  • Biden: Bull Connor's GOP Imperils Democracy

    "The next few days ... will mark a turning point in this nation's history," said resident Joe Biden in his Atlanta speech to reframe the debate in Congress on voting rights legislation and the filibuster. He went on: "Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadows, justice over injustice? ... I know where I stand. ... I will defend ... our democracy against all enemies -- foreign and, yes, domestic." And on this issue of light over shadows, good versus evil: "Where will the institution of the United States Senate stand? ... "Will you stand against voter suppression? Yes...
  • Democrats Selling Unwanted Propaganda While Ignoring Real Issues

    It's not unusual for a president to use his bully pulpit to push the agenda of his party, but it's a sad situation when the falsehoods he spouts are flagrant. This week, resident Joe Biden flew into Atlanta to push a bill for a federal takeover of voting by claiming it was a push for voting rights. While he was there, he labeled Senate Bill 202, which the state legislature passed and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed last year, as "Jim Crow in the 21st century." He went on to argue that the law was restrictive and that those who...
  • Republicans Are Not Gerrymandering Anywhere Near Enough

    Okay, this is getting stupid, and more than the usual stupid. The GOP is, as usual, failing to sack-up and take the fight to the Democrats. Those saps always whine about the voters pushing anti-establishment candidates in primaries, and this is exactly why. It’s time to divide up congressional districts. Where Democrats can, they are gutting the GOP. That’s how it’s done. But too often, the GOP is offering a limp, clammy hand across the aisle where it should be throwing a fist in a right cross. Oregon is now 5-1 Democrat. In California, several GOP seats are gone because...
  • Americans Wave Goodbye to Blue Cities and States

    01/10/2022 4:30:25 AM PST · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | January 10, 2022 | Jeff Crouere
    Across the country, Americans are fleeing “blue” cities and states led by progressive Democrats and moving to “red” communities governed by Republicans. Americans are voting with their feet in substantial numbers. This trend has been apparent for years, but it is now accelerating. In 2021, the state with the biggest loss of population was New York, which suffered a decline of 319,020 people. Until recently, left-wing Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo led New York. After he was forced to resign for his inappropriate behavior toward multiple women, his successor, Kathy Hochul, has continued his progressive policies with the same disastrous results....

    Washington -- I have been thinking about who my Man of the Year might be this year. And, by the way, who my Woman of the Year might be also. Of course, times are changing fast. Possibly I should be thinking about who my Transgender Person of the Year might be. It has been a complicated year. What with COVID-19 and not one but two Cuomos out of action and, finally, all the geniuses that the Biden administration has brought to Washington. Why not just lump all genders into one category? How about the Prodigy of the Year? Consider a...

    I love the smell of Joe Manchin in the morning … it smells like … victory. If you survey the charred ruins of the progressives' hopes and dreams, you will need to have a heart of stone not to burst into hysterical laughter at their pain. They were so close, so very close, and their heart's desire was ripped from them by a senator from a sane state who had zero desire to commit ritual, political suicide to please the brother-curious likes of Ilhan Omar. Cue the gif of a team of Joes carrying a coffin to that catchy EDM...
  • Will Congress Take Away Your Credit Card?

    How would you feel about Congress snatching away your credit card or preventing you from participating in credit card reward programs? Don't laugh. Left-wing groups in Washington are declaring that the plastic card in your wallet is the financial villain that needs to get reined in. A new study from researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston finds that credit card reward programs are unfair because they create "an implicit money transfer" to wealthy cardholders from lower-income people who buy things with cash or debit cards. The study infers that consumers who pay with plastic and rack up reward...
  • Democrats Setting Up to Lose the One Issue Keeping Them Afloat

    The majority of Republicans in Washington are thoroughly confused about their own party and their own voters. Some have lost faith in Republican voters completely and written them off as racists or crazies. Others don't know what to think. They are essentially biding time and hoping things go back to the way they were. They won't, of course. America is changing quickly. Voting patterns and the two-party norm that lasted for decades are under strain. Amazingly, Democrats are on the verge of handing back power to a Republican Party that's in a state of total chaos. All Republicans need to...

    Whew, I got my column accepted last week at the Washington Times with no intrusion from the censors. In fact, with no censors! At the Good Times, there are no censors at work. I used to write this column on a weekly basis for The Washington Post, and it could be a harrowing experience. Every week, I had to be certain that I had crossed no barriers with the potentates that be. Certain things could not be said. One editor told me that readers around the world thought that The Washington Post was the official voice of our government and...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is frog-marching her vulnerable members to a political suicide vote on a bill that’s likely dead on arrival in the Senate.On November 2, five House Democrats—enough to block the passage of the spending spree that the party hopes to enact via the budget reconciliation process—wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, urging her “to only bring a bill to the floor for which we have a strong level of confidence…will be ruled in order by the Senate parliamentarian and earn passage in the U.S. Senate.”The lawmakers have justifiable reason for concern. Major pieces of the 2,135-page...

    With the 2021 election in the home stretch, tens of millions of Americans will soon head to the ballot box or vote by mail for candidates on their November 2nd ballot. Depending on the state, voters can expect to elect a governor, state legislators, school board members, and other municipal officials, but there may be other items on the ballot they weren’t expecting: tax increases, and a lot of them. That’s right, voters across the country can expect to see many ballot measures that would impact their wallets. While these measures often get overshadowed, it would be a mistake to...
  • Dems Roll Out 'Plan C' to Cram Illegal Alien Amnesty Into the Budget Reconciliation Bill

    This summer, the Biden administration had a plan for withdrawing from Afghanistan: Pull all of our troops out by a date certain and trust that the Taliban would play nice and all would go smoothly. Apparently, they never really had a Plan B. We know how that turned out. The president’s allies in Congress seemingly drew a lesson from that debacle and appear determined not to get caught short when it comes to what seems like the Democrats’ single greatest political priority: gaining amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. After seeing Plans A and B dashed by Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth...

    I work with inventors around the country, and one of the things that they all have in common is that they are problem solvers. Now admittedly, some problems that they solve are bigger than others – I was recently pitched an idea to help open those horrible vegetable bags at grocery stores – and also had a call with a guy in the final stages of FDA approval of his lung ablation device that will help solve cardio-pulmonary disease. However, there are also a group of people that I often talk to that wonder where the best ideas come from....
  • The Democrats Desperate Attempt at a Wealth Tax

    Negotiations in Washington continue on how to pare down the $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend reconciliation bill to a point where it’s acceptable to both hyper progressive and blue dog Democrats. As such, some of the more egregious taxes and spending items are reportedly being stripped out of the new text during talks. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the idea of a wealth tax is on the chopping block. This is a shame considering the proposal would hamper investment and is almost certainly unconstitutional. While the proposal that will make its way into the final text is not the same as...
