    I didn’t write this but agree it is spot on; what’s good for thee is not good for me... Remember in 2011 when tens of thousands of Democrats surged on the Wisconsin Capitol building in Madison and physically occupied it for more than two weeks? We were told, "This is what democracy looks like." Remember in 2016 when Obama was President and hundreds of BLM blocked interstate highways and violently accosted police (even killing several)? We were told, "To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible." Remember in 2018 during the Kavanaugh hearings...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul quickly criticized President Joe Biden’s inauguration speech on Wednesday, saying Biden was calling Republicans racist. “If you read his speech and listen to it carefully, much of it is thinly-veiled innuendo calling us white supremacists, calling us racists, calling us every name in the book, calling us people who don’t tell the truth,” Paul said on Fox News Primetime. Paul said he also thought Biden was calling his political opponents liars.

    Left-wing Hollywood’s love affair with President Joe Biden has reached a new level with actress Lena Dunham, who has expressed her desire to marry the president’s troubled, 50-year-old son Hunter Biden. In what appears to be a desperate grab for relevance or a botched attempt at humor, Lena Dunham has posted a tweet in which she fantasizes about marrying Hunter Biden and visiting the White House as part of the first family. “I cannot wait to spend holidays at the White House when I am Hunter Biden’s beautiful wife,” the Girls star wrote.

    Canterbury, Connecticut, 1832: a charming female boarding school has found success among the locals, with two dozen girls enrolled. Some in town question the purpose of educating young girls—but surely there’s no harm in trying? At least not until the Prudence Crandall School announces its plans to start accepting black students. Thirty years before the abolition of slavery in the United States, in the so-called “free” North, these students will be met by a wave of hostility that puts the future of the school in question, and their very lives in peril. Even in the land of the free,...

    China announced multiple sanctions against Trump administration officials and allies on Wednesday, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, just as former President Trump's term ends and President Biden's administration begins.

"These individuals and their immediate family members are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao of China. They and companies...

    Joe Biden's economic policy team, led by incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, has signaled it will be the first administration in history "to construct economic policy around issues like race, gender equality and climate change, rather than around traditional indicators like gross domestic product or deficit ratios," reports Axios. The center-left site says Biden "is charting an economic policy that's visibly to the left of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama." "If he succeeds, it's going to show up not only in taxes and spending, but also in regulation." Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times has characterized Biden's upcoming policies as an...

    KLICKITAT COUNTY, Wash. (KOIN) — Walt Patrick slowly rolls a giant wooden spool-shaped cradle back and forth. Inside, a human body is gradually being turned into compost, one of the first licensed “natural organic reductions” to be performed in the entire country. “This is simply another option at a time when people feel they have no options,” Patrick said. “You know, death has intervened and changed your life forever. How can you do something at least to make it the way you want?” Patrick is the senior steward at Herland Forest, a natural burial cemetery and nonprofit research center located...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congresswoman from New York, flashed a double white-power symbol during a Zoom conference about New York City’s crime uptick. Perhaps it was just an “OK” sign or even just a mindless gesture, but that doesn’t matter these days. During the Zoom video, which The Hill uploaded to its YouTube channel Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez spoke to constituents and answered press questions about rising crime rates in the Big Apple. She pointed to the Wuhan virus, financial instability, and police brutality as reasons for the rise in crime, failing to mention anything about the violent riots that swept the...

Donald Trump has given his supporters 'legitimacy to become even more radical', he told Yahoo...

    Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, warned Friday that Senate Republicans will “destroy the party” if they vote to convict President Trump. Mr. Paul, who previously condemned the U.S. Capitol rioting and voted against objections to the 2020 presidential election, said one-third of voters would leave if Senate Republicans get behind the “insane and wrongheaded” impeachment push. “Look, I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week, and I voted against overturning the election, but at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion,” said Mr. Paul on Fox’s “The Ingraham Angle.” “But if Republicans go along with...
