    American truckers don’t like taking orders. But the Biden administration has increased pressure on them to take the vaccine—willing or unwilling. All through the pandemic, truckers endured hardships to keep America’s infrastructure running. They waited in line for hours in sight of bathrooms they weren’t allowed to use. On the road, some died alone of COVID-19. Now, with supply chains disrupted, Americans need them more than ever. But faced with the prospect of a forced vaccination, many drivers are considering quitting. “I’d fight it,” said veteran trucker Mike Widdins, referring to vaccine mandates. “I think a lot of us will...

    While running for president, Joe Biden campaigned as a lunch-pail-carrying, blue-collar moderate from Scranton, Pa. But during his short tenure in the White House, Biden has proven himself to be a far-left champion of bureaucracy, reckless government spending and the centralization of economic and political power. The most recent example is Biden’s nomination of Cornell law professor Saule Omarova to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a branch of the Treasury Department. Omarova is a controversial choice. Born in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan, Omarova was educated in the Soviet Union, graduating from Moscow State University...
  • As Expected Containergeddon is Getting Worse – Biden’s Political Solution to Clear The Ships From Los Angeles Ports Only Making Things Worse

    This is a follow-up to the original explanation of the epicenter of the supply chain backlog issue, ie “The Clog“. {GO DEEP} You need to review the years-long and building background issue to understand the fubar that Joe Biden has just made worse.From the White House perspective, the problem at the California ports, specifically the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB), was visible due to hundreds of container ships sitting in a queue off the coast of Los Angeles awaiting their opportunity to offload their cargo. The media was reporting on the backlog of...

    The corporate media outlets that bashed southern, often Republican-led states during the Delta-variant surge of COVID-19 are now silent as hospitalizations are falling in the south and have risen in the north.The total number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Region 4, which consists of Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida, is down more than 73% since Sept. 1, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In HHS Region 3 (Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia), hospitalizations surged almost 1,000% from late-July to...

His public approval is down a total 14 percentage points since June, according to the latest Gallup poll.

    Democrat regulations are holding the entire economy hostage.. After a long cross-country flight, I made it out of LAX and into an Uber. I wasn’t in the mood to talk, but the driver was. And hearing that I was a journalist, he wanted to tell me a story. I’ve heard a lot of stories over the years, but this may have been the most important one I let go. He hadn’t always been driving an Uber at 11:30 at night. Not all that long ago he used to have his own business with 7 trucks before he was bankrupted by...

Barack Obama tells Virginians we don’t have time for ‘trumped up culture wars’ and ‘fake outrage’ Posted at 7:45 pm on October 23, 2021 by Brett T. Everyone has noticed by now that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe is bringing in a lot of big names who don’t live in Virginia to campaign for him: Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, to name a few. Obama campaigned for McAuliffe over the weekend and told the “crowd” that we don’t have time for “trumped-up culture...

    It seems more than apropos to assess the legacy and words of President Ronald Reagan at this juncture in our history; it is an absolute necessity. Reagan not only understood the political reality of the world in front of him, he had a prescience of the political world that might be coming if Americans did not demonstrate the same resolve that won the revolution. The insouciance of the Biden administration is unrelenting as it watches inflation rise, spends trillions on phony infrastructure bills and blithely observes the southern border evaporate. What would Reagan have done? And what would Reagan have...

    Is the 'Don't tread on me' spirit that built this country is long gone?. On Sept. 9, resident Biden declared, “the Department of Labor is developing an emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more employees, that together employ over 80 million workers, to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week.” So, Mr. Biden believes the federal government, under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has the purview to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations. Interestingly, a few months ago, Mr. Biden believed the federal government did not have the authority...

  • Clyburn: Biden Spending Plan not ‘Zero Cost’ — ‘No Way to Pay’ for a $6 Trillion or Even $3.5 Trillion Program

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) on Friday sounded a different tune than President Joe Biden on the cost of his so-called Build Back Better agenda. Biden and his administration have maintained that the $3.5 trillion spending package would come with “zero cost” to the American people, but Clyburn told MSNBC’s “Craig Melvin Reports” that “there’s no way to pay” for a $6 trillion program or even a $3.5 trillion program. The South Carolina congressman said Democrats are “committed” to paying for what they deem necessary and emphasized they are “close to finding that sweet spot.”

    Phunware stock (NASDAQ:PHUN) was defying all conventions Friday as it rose 1,468% on speculation that the company is being tapped to build former U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposed social media platform. Trading in the stock was halted later. It jumped 1,000% after it resumed. The stock touched a high of $24.04 during the session. It had closed at $1.53 Thursday. More than 197 million shares of the company changed hands on Nasdaq in less than an hour of trading. The speculation has its roots in a USA Today article from May 2020 highlighting a partnership between Phunware and the Trump...

    Biden Finally Admits Dems Don’t Have The Votes To Raise Corporate Taxes For ‘Build Back Better’ Agenda After weeks of negotiations at the White House and on Capitol Hill, it appears the Democrats are hardly any closer to passing President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda (which, remember, has been split into two bills, a “bipartisan” infrastructure bill and another to finance a massive expansion of the social safety net). To make matters worse (for America, not the Democrats), the Washington Press Corp reported last night that Democratic moderate Kyrsten Sinema, who has helped to plunge Biden’s agenda deeper into chaos,...

    The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded research in China that created a more potent form of a bat coronavirus, according to newly disclosed documents. An experiment conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, situated near where the first cases of COVID-19 were reported, compared mice infected with the original bat coronavirus to mice infected with a modified strain created by researchers, according to the documents. The mice infected with the modified version “became sicker than those infected” with the original version, Lawrence Tabak, the principal deputy director at the NIH, told lawmakers in letters (pdf) on Oct. 20....

    The Biden administration’s proposed asylum rule worsens the already flawed expedited removal process for illegal immigrants by making it more difficult to detect meritless asylum claims.The window for public comments regarding the Biden administration’s proposed asylum rule closes this week, and it looks like at least some Americans understand the mischief.“So wrong and deceitful!” wrote Dianna Key of the rule on the public forum for administrative rule making. Her comments were echoed last week by an immigration judge, who called it a “misleading and dishonest proposal.”What numerous such commentators understand is that the rule would allow massive numbers of legally...

    The Biden administration abandoned an oil and gas drilling project in Alaska approved by former President Donald Trump, which it had previously defended. “Today’s affirmation of our legal victory against the Willow project is a win for the climate and for an irreplaceable Alaska landscape,” Jeremy Lieb, an attorney for the group Earthjustice, said in a statement Wednesday. “We are glad to see that President Biden is taking positive steps in his commitment toward a cleaner energy future.” While the administration chose against appealing a federal ruling that blocked the project, it previously vowed to defend the project and accused...

    Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Message To Concerned Parents Is Clear: Shut Up Or ElseWhat do you call it when the country’s largest school board association secretly coordinates with the Biden White House before issuing a formal request that the administration use the FBI to investigate dissenting parents as potential “domestic terrorists,” and then, five days later, the Justice Department issues a memorandum to the FBI to do just that?The old-fashioned word for it is corruption — corruption of our institutions, the rule of law, the administration of justice, the separation of powers. It is also an egregious abuse of power...

    President Joe Biden said on Thursday night that he hasn't had time to visit the southern border to address the surge in illegal immigrants and admitted that he "should go down." "I've been there before, I know it well, I guess I should go down," Biden told CNN's Anderson Cooper during a town hall event. "The whole point of it is, I haven't had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down."

    President Biden, who in December said he “wouldn’t demand” vaccines be mandatory, not only mocked unvaccinated Americans on Thursday and their freedom to make their own medical decisions, but also endorsed the firing of first responders and police who don’t comply. During a town hall event with CNN, moderator Anderson Cooper asked about his thoughts on first responders and police in a number of major cities who are refusing to take the vaccine, which has been mandated at the city level. “Should police officers, emergency responders be mandated to get vaccines and if not, should they stay at home or...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-The Moon) made the Democratic position clear Thursday: If you’re not with us, you’re terrorists. During his opening statement for the Attorney General Merrick Garland hearing, Nadler said there was no difference between the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6 and parents who are angry about what is being taught in schools. “This growth in extremist ideology is echoed in an epidemic of violence and intimidation directed at our health care professionals, teachers, essential workers, school board members and election workers,” Nadler said. Nadler, a partisan loon who spent the past four years stirring up...
