    The American Spectator ^ | April 30, 2023 | David Catron
    Much has been written about the remarkably large percentage of Americans who don’t want President Joe Biden to run for a second term. Most of the commentariat, however, tiptoes around the obvious reason they want him to retire after one term. When they can’t avoid discussing Biden’s bizarre behavior and weird maundering, most pundits hide behind vague allusions to his age, but the public has long known that the real problem is his steady cognitive decline.As far back as November of 2021, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that only 46 percent of voters agreed with the following statement: “Joe Biden...
  • Kerry: Green Energy Will Be More Competitive if We Raise Prices of Oil, Gas

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry stated that wind and solar power will become “far more price competitive than oil and gas” if oil and gas companies see their costs rise because they “have to spend huge amounts of money for carbon capture and storage and utilization.” Kerry said, “I would say to you, Andrea, that, frankly, I’m surprised, pleasantly, on the positive side, by the amount of things that are just taking hold. We see remarkable progress on batteries and battery storage. We’re seeing the price of wind and solar...
  • Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band Member Steven Van Zandt Says He Meant to Say ‘Exterminate’ Conservatives ‘At the Ballot Box’

    After calling for and then deleting his demand for the left to “exterminate” conservative “cockroaches,” Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt is still walking back his incendiary comment, claiming he meant to say “exterminate at the ballot box.” In a recent set of angry tweets, Steven Van Zandt defended his use of “cockroaches” to describe the political opposition after someone pointed out that the same insult was used in Rwanda to foment genocide. Van Zandt claimed his use of “cockroach” was just “symbolism” and that he really meant to say “exterminate at the ballot box.” He called...
  • 'Why will nobody kiss me?' Dylan Mulvaney's man-to-girl transition has won her TikTok fame, riches, and allies in the White House, but left her lonely and undateable

    It's been a tough year for Dylan Mulvaney. Twelve months since launching her hit TikTok series, Days of Girlhood, she's earned hundreds of thousands of dollars, won allies in the White House, and is elbowing her way into the world of Hollywood celebrities. Still, the rigors of social media stardom are taking a toll. The 26-year-old has endured painful facial surgery and been doxxed — when a fan published her personal phone number online. Now the trans poster girl has revealed how her personal relationships have fallen apart, that she struggles to get a date — and is still to...

    President Biden declared Thursday he likes “babies better than people” and then picked one up for a cuddle — as White House aides scrambled to correct his gaffe a day earlier when he vowed to disarm “domestic political advisers.” The 80-year-old president drew a line between babyhood and personhood during an East Room event celebrating the 13th anniversary of the ObamaCare health reform law. “It’s OK, it’s all right,” Biden said as an infant wailed during his speech, adding, “In fact, I like babies better than people.” After speaking, Biden held the baby who apparently was the source of the...

    One of the stars of ABC’s General Hospital has compared Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) to Adolf Hitler, claiming the governor’s effort to remove pornographic books from public school libraries qualifies him as a “sadist.” Actress Nancy Lee Grahn , who has repeatedly used her large social media following to smear conservatives, tweeted Monday that DeSantis “will end up making Hitler seem nice.” Her tweet was in response to a video showing examples of the sexually explicit books found in Florida public school libraries.

    Footage shows 5 Utah cops fire into BMW of man during traffic stop Authorities released footage of five Utah cops yelling “gun” and firing a barrage of bullets into the BMW of a man who was pulled over and then refused most of the officers’ commands before shots rang out. The bodycam video detailed the moment police officers in Farmington, a Utah suburb, shot and killed 25-year-old Chase Allan on March 1. He refused to hand over his driver’s license and declined other police commands as he recited anti-governmental views, footage indicates. Farmington Police Chief Eric Johnsen said officers only...

    A Gillette woman won an argument with her boyfriend last week by dropping him off at the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, where authorities arrested him on three outstanding warrants. A 27-year-old woman on Feb. 27 was driving her car while her 32-year-old boyfriend, Levi Wazelle, yelled at her, according to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office. Lt. Paul Pownall told Cowboy State Daily that Wazelle was yelling at the woman and would not get out of her car – so she drove him to the sheriff’s office. While the girlfriend met with deputies, Wazelle fled on foot. There were three municipal...

    A Florida man is under arrest after police say he stole from a gas station and left his debit card with his name on it at the scene of the crime. Deputies with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office responded to an alarm at a gas station early Sunday morning in Palm Coast, Florida, and found the front door of the business unlocked, Fox 35 Orlando reported. After searching the gas station, deputies found a debit card with the name Lantz Kurtz sitting on the counter near a register. Security camera footage showed a man entering the store from the back...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg shifted part of the blame for the recent derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals in Ohio on the Trump administration reversing a little-known safety rule. Buttigieg noted Tuesday evening that his agency had taken a series of steps to improve rail safety through "historic investments," but said it was constrained by the Trump administration action. In 2018, the Department of Transportation (DOT) withdrew a rule proposed three years earlier requiring trains carrying certain dangerous chemicals to utilize electronically controlled pneumatic (ECP) brakes, saying the technology's benefits were inconclusive.
  • ‘And then 2022 happened’: I borrowed $500,000 from friends and family to invest in the stock market, foolishly promising a 10% return. Can I avoid legal action?

    I am a budding options/futures trader with my own sole proprietor investment business. Heading into 2022, I took on a large cash infusion of $500,000 from friends and family under the guise of a promise I made to issue a 10% return on their money. This promise was made via a signed promissory note, and the return was less than the annual return I had been experiencing years before. And then 2022 happened. It was an extremely bad year for the markets, and the worst I’d seen since I had been actively trading. Needless to say, I was not able...

    Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday that former President Trump is a “proven loser” after a string of Republican election losses in recent years. “He’s fading fast,” Ryan told CNN’s Jake Tapper Thursday. “He is a proven loser. He cost us the House in ’18, he cost us the White House in ’20, he cost us the Senate again and again.” Ryan said he does not believe Trump will get the party nomination as Republicans begin to focus more on issues like fiscal responsibility and less on personalities. “I think we are moving past Trump,” he added. “I...

    An audience member blamed "White people" for committing genocide, "demanding" drugs from cartels and carrying out mass shootings in an attempt to defend illegal immigration during a heated debate on "Dr. Phil" Wednesday. Amid a discussion about the crisis at the border, Dr. Phil turned to National Border Patrol Council Vice President Art Del Cueto to offer his take. Cueto, who was born in Mexico and immigrated legally, said the "chaos" at the border today endangers American citizens.

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) appears to have clinched the Speakership. The apparent win came on the 15th ballot, after a long day and moments of drama and chaos on the House floor. Five Republican holdouts so far have voted “present” on the final ballot, lowering the vote threshold by enough to hand McCarthy the gavel.

    The wannabe House Speaker's office wheeled in a dolly cart full of pizzas last night.It was a long, rough day for California Republican Kevin McCarthy as he repeatedly failed to secure the votes to become Speaker of the House amid a far-right mutiny. Holed up in his office (or not his office), he did what anyone would in a moment of crisis: he ordered pizza. Reporters captured a dolly cart wheeling in boxes upon boxes of carby cargo. A dolly cart! Internet sleuths quickly identified the logo as belonging to Wiseguy Pizza, a mere mile away. As a food editor,...

    The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security held a hearing Thursday on finding a solution to gun violence, and the difference of opinion between Democrats and Republicans was put on full display. Passions ran high given the sensitivity of the issues involved, as liberal lawmakers focused on weapons and conservatives on the people who use them. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-La., a former judge who handled felony cases, was in the latter group and focused on the need to instill morality in people, citing Judeo-Christian principles. He went so far as to say it is the bedrock of...
