  • Joe Biden: I Respect ‘Conservative’ Republicans, Not ‘MAGA Republicans’

    President Joe Biden continued spreading his feelings of disgust toward supporters of former President Donald Trump and the “MAGA Republicans” as he hit the campaign trail on Thursday. “I respect conservative Republicans, I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans,” he said. Earlier in the evening, Biden described the MAGA movement as “semi-fascist” at a fundraiser. At his political rally, the president spoke about his many years of service in the Senate, working with mainstream Republicans. “There are not many real Republicans anymore,” he lamented.
  • ALAS! National Review stands athwart history and yells . . . and nobody listens

    “People who spend a lot of time in front of Fox News or MSNBC,” writes Kevin Williamson in National Review Online (NRO), “are not in the main what you’d call happy and well-adjusted people.” Williamson is one of the bright young writers of NR and NRO, presided over by Rich Lowry (or is it Richard now?) who have made National Review increasingly irrelevant to modern American conservatism. Williamson’s estimation of Fox News viewers resembles Hillary Clinton’s description of populist conservatives as “deplorables” and Barack Obama’s snide remark about those voters who cling to their religion and guns. Bill Buckley (who...
  • Low Literacy Levels Among U.S. Adults Could Be Costing The Economy $2.2 Trillion A Year

    A new study by Gallup on behalf of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy finds that low levels of adult literacy could be costing the U.S. as much $2.2 trillion a year. According to the U.S. Department of Education, 54% of U.S. adults 16-74 years old - about 130 million people - lack proficiency in literacy, reading below the equivalent of a sixth-grade level. That’s a shocking number for several reasons, and its dollars and cents implications are enormous because literacy is correlated with several important outcomes such as personal income, employment levels, health, and overall economic growth.

  • Hillary Clinton hits Americans as gullible, says they don't 'appreciate' Biden accomplishments

    Fox News ^ | 11/24/2021 | Brandon Gillespie
    Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday praised the legislative accomplishments of President Biden while appearing to claim that everyday Americans didn't understand or "appreciate" them. During an appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," Clinton complained about the successful "exploiting" of social media misinformation by Republicans, blaming the lack of "gatekeepers" and "people with a historic perspective" to help Americans understand what they were seeing. "You know, democracy is messy. You know, a lot of people got, oh I think, kind of frustrated looking at the messy process of legislation. And they didn’t really appreciate that, within a...
  • The American Ruling Class Reaches Its Inflection Point

    In a 2010 essay for The American Spectator, the late, great intellectual Angelo Codevilla wrote a rare essay that was, in retrospect, so prescient as to be outright eerie. Titled "America's Ruling Class" and deploying "class"-based phraseology historically more at home in some corners of the political left than on the postwar political right, Codevilla set his sights squarely on his eponymous target. "Today's ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits," he wrote. "Whether formally...

    MSNBC network contributor Charlie Sykes said Friday on “Deadline” that the Republican Party was being taken over by “deplorables” while discussing Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for inciting the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot, announcing he will not run for re-election in 2022. Sykes said, “It feels like a familiar story this ongoing purge of the decent, the principled, the honorable members and their replacement by the deplorable and the hack-ish. In Max Miller’s case, think of Max Miller as the biff character from ‘Back to the Future.’ You’re finding the most obnoxious...

    That tall, amiable sheriff and his little boy, Opie, heading to a fishing hole on the outskirts of Mayberry, North Carolina, at the start of "The Andy Griffith Show," were actually strolling along a backlot in Culver City, California. Ron Howard, the actor who played Opie, is now one of Hollywood's top directors. Most of the other stars – Andy Griffith; Don Knotts, who played his deputy, Barney Fife; and the actors who played Aunt Bee and Floyd the Barber – they've all passed on. After all, it's been 53 years since the show was cancelled. snip ... Koppel asked...

    Let's start with the obvious: "Basket of deplorables" is a weird turn of phrase. There are baskets and there are deplorable people, but pairing the two is the oddest of linguistic odd couples. Hillary Clinton said those three words in the final months of her 2016 presidential campaign, making rhetorical and political history. There were two kinds of Donald Trump supporters, she explained: Voters who feel abandoned and desperate, who she placed in one metaphorical basket, and those she called "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic" - her "basket of deplorables." Trump - the same man who announced his candidacy...

    Former President Obama's 60th birthday party was declared not to be a super spreader event by the media, even though hundreds of unmasked guests cavorted at his palatial estate on Martha's Vineyard over a three day period. New York Times reporter Annie Karni declared the affair "was low risk because the guests were drawn from a better class of people than the deplorables attending Trump rallies." This totally safe and healthy gathering was contrasted with the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally taking place in South Dakota the same weekend. As Dr. Anthony Fauci explained to NBC's Chuck Todd on Meet the Press,...

    Despite a competitive (if not contentious) 2016 GOP primary battle against former President Donald Trump, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has Trump's endorsement in his bid for reelection next year. In fact, the onetime rivals now share a mutual respect. Indeed, Rubio says, he won't even challenge Trump, whom he called "the most popular and most influential Republican in America," should the former president make another run for the White House in 2024. "If he decides to run for the president and the nomination, he's going to be the party's nominee," Rubio told Newsmax TV's "Greg Kelly Reports" on Wednesday. "That's...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) will not pursue charges against the U.S. Capitol Police officer who allegedly shot and killed Ashli Babbitt during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., officials announced Wednesday. An investigation conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia determined "that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution," the department said in a statement. .....

    On the day when former President Donald Trump’s most delusional supporters swore he would return to power — and the House suspended its business because of supposed threats to the U.S. Capitol — Washington looked on Thursday morning much the way it has for the past two months. National Guard members armed with M4 rifles braced for rebellion that never came. Razor wire lined miles of steel fencing that went unbreached. Trump remained in Florida, where it was 70 degrees and sunny. Capitol Police say intelligence shows militia group may be plotting to breach the Capitol.

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz delivered an explosive speech at CPAC Friday morning before a packed crowd in Orlando; telling conservative voters that Donald Trump “ain’t going anywhere!” “They look at Donald Trump and the millions of people who went to battle fighting alongside him and they’re terrified. They want him to go away. Let me tell you this right now: Donald J. Trump ain’t going anywhere,” said Cruz. “The Republican Party is not the party of the country clubs, it’s the party of steel workers and construction workers and taxi drivers and cops and firefighters and waitresses,” he added. “That...
  • With Trump Gone, You Are the Enemy

    For over four years, the left has fueled its media headlines and party donations on hatred for President Trump, but now Trump is gone. Who is the enemy who can take his place and keep Americans from asking uncomfortable questions about Biden’s race to socialism? The answer is unsettling—the enemy is YOU, the 74 million dangerous “extremists” who voted for the “evil” Donald Trump. To ensure media cover from close scrutiny during the first one-hundred days of the Biden administration, they’ve embraced a second impeachment attempt after President Trump has already left office. They don’t care that it will go...
  • Democrats Want a 'Return to Civility'; When Did They Practice It? Part 2

    Last week, we covered the challenge President Joe Biden faces in his supposed quest to return to an era of "civility." Democrats never practiced civility. We listed only some of the race- and Nazi-based insults used for decades by Democrats against the very Republicans with whom they now seek "healing." Here are just a few more examples: Left-wing actor/singer and activist Harry Belafonte, who marched with close friend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., called President George W. Bush a racist. When asked whether the number and prominence of Blacks in the Bush administration perhaps suggested a lack of racism, Belafonte...

    On the Right there’s a heck of a lot of shunning being experienced. The tech titans throwing us off their media; the US Chamber of Commerce members frantically virtue signaling their desire to fund only congressional opinions they subscribe to; the daily hit list of small businesses harassed by the “virtuous” in their communities. But, there’s something at odds with logic in most of these relationships. When the Fortune 500 tell us we’re deplorable, when twitter or facebook shut us out, those are cases where the providers of goods and services are giving an extended middle finger to a big...
