  • Is Biden’s “Success” Our Mess?

    If an administration deliberately wished to cause havoc on the border, to ensure fuel was nearly unaffordable, to create a crime wave, to spark 1970s hyperinflation, and to rekindle racial tensions, what would it have done differently than what President Joe Biden has done? So is Biden malicious, incompetent, or a wannabe left-wing ideologue? When pressed about inflation and fuel price hikes, Biden either blames someone or something else, gets mad at the questioner, or claims former President Donald Trump did it. His administration apparently believes things are going well and according to plan. When polls disagree, his team either...
  • How to Mess Up a 5G Rollout

    We’re from the FAA and we’re here to blame you for our mistakes. It’s hard to know which is more messed up these days—air transportation, or the Biden Administration. As another case in point, consider the clash between airlines and wireless carriers over 5G. Carriers paid the U.S. government $80 billion for this valuable spectrum, but the Federal Aviation Administration now won’t let them use it. The agency says the signals could potentially interfere with plane altimeters that measure the distance to the ground. The Federal Communications Commission reviewed these concerns during notice-and-comment on its plan to repurpose C-band from...

    Former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that President Joe Biden was delivering even though he inherited a “mess” from former President Donald Trump. When asked how Biden should combat falling poll numbers, Boxer said, “I think the answer is pretty straightforward with Joe Biden, just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and deliver for the American people.”

  • Kellyanne Conway’s daughter Claudia ‘officially pushing for emancipation’

    Kellyanne Conway’s Trump-hating daughter is apparently ready for a new family. “I’m officially pushing for emancipation. Buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. Welcome to my life,” 15-year-old Claudia Conway tweeted Saturday night. Left-leaning Claudia has been openly feuding with her parents on TikTok and Twitter all summer, bashing them for their conservative views. At one point she urged progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to adopt her. Saturday’s tweet came alongside many more in which she penned her frustration over her mother’s work for the president, and over recent praise of her father,...
  • Trump signs executive order meant to protect electricity system from foreign interference

    President Trump signed an executive order Friday barring U.S. purchases of certain foreign-produced power equipment, a move meant to reduce national security risks to the electricity system. “It is imperative the bulk-power system be secured against exploitation and attacks by foreign threats,” Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette said in a statement. The order “will greatly diminish the ability of foreign adversaries to target our critical electric infrastructure.” Examples of bulk-power system equipment include substations, control rooms, substation transformers, and generators that are necessary to operate the interconnected electricity grid and maintain reliable generation, according to the order. The order prohibits any...
  • Democratic contest looks like catastrophic mess of 1972

    This Democratic presidential nomination battle has the feel of the party’s disastrous 1972 contests that resulted in a 49-state landslide for Republican incumbent Richard Nixon over left-wing Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota. That Democratic tussle, like this one, featured a multicandidate field navigating an uncertain and volatile Democratic electorate. Like this race, with socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders making the party establishment extremely nervous, the 1972 primaries pushed to the fore a candidate, McGovern, seen as so radical that party insiders appeared to be in full panic mode. And, as in this year with Joe Biden, in 1972, a former...
  • Iowa caucus mess nothing compared to intra-Democratic Party chaos on the horizon

    The Iowa caucuses reveal not only a Democratic Party deliriously incompetent at handling a vote tally — this from the folks who have been screaming about voting fraud and irregularities for years — but at war with itself in a way that could lead to political disorder that will make the counting disaster look like a garden party. What little we can glean from entrance polls reveals the way in which the schematics of the intra-Democratic conflict in 2020 are very stark.

    At the end of a heated exchange with a reporter Thursday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stared pointedly at the man who had asked her if she hates President Trump and uttered four words: “Don’t mess with me.” Within minutes, the contentious moment — initiated by a question from Sinclair Broadcast Group reporter James Rosen — blew up social media. Soon, Pelosi’s terse declaration had inspired a trending hashtag, “#DontMessWithNancy.” Videos of her response racked up millions of views as many, including late-night comedians, reveled in what has been described as “a righteous smackdown.” By Thursday night, Pelosi’s team...

    Pope Francis: Church Must Learn to Abandon Old ‘Traditions’ It is a mistake for the Church to try to hold onto old traditions or to have clear answers for everything, Pope Francis said Thursday. Jesus intentionally omitted telling his disciples many things so that the Church would learn to renounce the desire for clarity and order, the pope told participants in the 21st general assembly of Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s global charitable outreach.

So we won’t speak plainly. - Pope Francis  “Let what you say be simply `Yes' or `No'; anything more than this comes from evil.” - Jesus Christ   As underlined last month, the filthy fingerprints of the Father of Lies are now all over the Vatican (aka Sodomy Central). Hiding in plain sight, his 'signature' is not only apparent in orgiastic eruptions, however. It is also clear and ever present in the leitmotif of this papacy — deception. This devilish modus...

    There are many things that a person can do to improve themselves. In my case, I could lose some weight, and eat better. I could be kinder to people, and stop reading the news so much. I could spend more time with friends and family, and I could spend more time in nature. I think that if I did those things, I would be a better person. It’s not just me. I look around the world and see all kinds of things that could be improved with a modest amount of effort. The key here is the word “modest”. For...

    The bishops of Australia are divided over whether their country should legalize so-called same-sex marriage. Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney has teamed up with Dan White, executive director of Sydney Catholic Schools, in urging parents of Catholic students to vote "no" on the national postal survey on same-sex marriage that's going on now in Australia. In a two-page letter sent to parents Friday, Abp. Fisher related, "We will be voting 'no' and encourage you to do the same." The archbishop affirmed Catholics weren't bigots for rejecting gay marriage. "Sadly, there has been a campaign to label those who support traditional...

    Clean-up crews are racing to clear acres of debris at the largest Dakota Access protest camp before the spring thaw turns the snowy, trash-covered plains into an environmental disaster area. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Friday that the camp, located on federal land, would be closed Feb. 22 in order to “prevent injuries and significant environmental damage in the likely event of flooding in this area” at the mouth of the Cannonball River in North Dakota. “Without proper remediation, debris, trash, and untreated waste will wash into the Cannonball River and Lake Oahe,” the Corps said in its...

    The 2016 Summer Olympics kicks off on August 5 in Rio de Janeiro -- but with less than seven months until the Opening Ceremony, a slew of problems still show no signs of improvement. Will Connors had a good, if troubling, piece in The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday laying out the concerns in Rio. Not only does the list of concerns appear to be trending in the wrong direction as the Games draw closer, it also shows no signs of improvement. Let's break down the biggest problems: 1. Questions over Rio's mobility plan Rio is racing to build a...

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s attorneys, who appear to be crafting a defense based around casting the older brother as a bullying mastermind of the Boston operation, renewed their push for evidence on Friday arguing the government had previously said the case was “might be relevant if Dzhokhar were aware of it.” They then pointed to a letter they received from prosecutors on Aug. 15, 2014, saying the government had a witness prepared to testify that “Dzhokhar had such an awareness.” The developments come just days before both sides are scheduled to release their initial list of witnesses in the bombings trial, which...

    DeKalb County Police say they were caught off-guard Sunday by the unsanctioned party at a public park that ended with two women being shot. “This came really as a surprise to us,” the county’s public safety chief Cedric Alexander told reporters on Monday. But Alexander vowed that they would be prepared in the future. “We’re going to monitor social media going forward so that we can try to get ahead of them as quickly as we can and intervene and try to make sure those illegal crowds do not converge upon a crowd and become a threat to anyone,” he...
