    The deterioration of our major cities has been a matter of concern for some time now.

If you own or have an interest in a historic building in downtown Baltimore... Urine trouble.Many of downtown Baltimore’s buildings are slowly being washed away.

    We should've known. Wait. Some of us did — or at least predicted it — from the beginning, with "it" being the nefarious powers that be in the federal government would do their damnedest to shield Joe and Hunter Biden from the justice they likely deserve for the crimes they likely committed. As I reported on Friday night, legal scholar and Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley called Hunter's Thursday indictment on nine tax counts — including four counts of failure to pay taxes, two counts of filing false tax documents, two counts of failure to file taxes, and one...

    We have good and bad news to report. First, the good news for the people of Houston, Texas.Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) was running to become mayor of Houston. But she found herself in a difficult race with the powerful state Sen. John Whitmire, also a Democrat. She got the endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). But even with those heavy hitters coming out for her, she still lost. Badly. Houston held the run-off election on Saturday, and Whitmire just completely trounced Jackson Lee by almost 30 points. Houston, we dodged a problem!...

    Children and straight men are being encouraged to explore “gay” and “transgender” sexual identities through “mainstream” pornography, staff members of the pornography giant Aylo, which owns Pornhub, said in undercover interviews.In the latest installment of a series of undercover videos released to social media by reporter Arden Young with investigative journalism outfit Sound Investigations, two top Aylo (formerly Mindgeek) employees said pornography has “educational elements to it,” can help children as young as 12 explore their sexual identity and gender, and that homosexual and transgender pornography is now being pushed to straight men to “convert” them.
  • "A Constant State Of Sticker Shock" – Here Is Proof That Inflation In The US Is Wildly Out Of Control: Do you believe the politicians in Washington or do you believe your own eyes?

    Do you believe the politicians in Washington or do you believe your own eyes? The politicians keep telling us that “inflation is low”, but everyone can see that everything sure does cost a lot more than it once did. Our standard of living just keeps going down, and even JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is admitting that “inflation is hurting people”. But how can inflation be “hurting people” if it is under control? Of course the truth is that it isn’t under control. If the official rate of inflation was still measured using the formula that was in place in...

    By the year 2025, communist China plans to unleash large number of humanoid robots, meaning robots that look and act like people but are just walking computers and circuitry. In a race with Elon Musk’s Tesla and other Western companies working on similar technologies, China hopes to start mass producing its version of humanoid robots by 2025. According to banking giant Goldman Sachs, the market for humanoid robots could reach $150 billion per year in just 15 years. Fully operational humanoid robots are expected to be mass produced and working in factories between 2025 and 2028, and later in other...
  • Tuberville dropped anti-abortion mantle. No one in the GOP is picking it up.

    Tommy Tuberville spent months casting himself as the Senate's anti-abortion martyr. Now that he's dropped the torch, nobody is looking to pick it up. Tuberville’s months-long blockade of military promotions not only failed to prompt a change in the Biden administration abortion policy it was designed to protest — it also failed to rally his fellow conservatives behind pursuit of abortion restrictions through new legislation or other tactics. As the entire GOP flounders without a unified approach to the issue in the aftermath of Roe v. Wade's demise, Tuberville's stand appears to have had no effect. “Look, I'm a realist....

    Poor Joe Biden. He just can't stop the bleeding. Then again, when you constantly — and intentionally — shoot yourself in the foot, the chances of pulling out of a full-blown nosedive are pretty much zero. Such was the case on Wednesday when a new CNN poll — such irony — revealed that Biden has now reached the lowest approval rating of his miserable presidency. The most intentionally inept U.S. president in history stood at just 37 percent approval in November, two points less than in October, and the lowest since he assumed office in January 2021.Check out the steady...

    An FBI raid on private safe deposit boxes has triggered a significant legal battle over civil asset forfeiture and the lengths to which federal authorities can use the practice, which has often been referred to as “Policing for Profit.”The outcome of the court proceedings could turn this into a landmark case that helps to further define the parameters in which federal law enforcement can use the controversial procedure.FBI agents cataloged Cartier bracelets, Rolex watches and stacks of cash as they combed through safe deposit boxes seized from a Beverly Hills business accused of money laundering. But the owners of many...

    Tax Charges Filed in California - Finally. Undoubtedly due to the pressure from Congressional Republicans and the whistleblowers who have spoken out against DOJ abuses and protection of President Biden’s son, Special Counsel David Weiss has just filed a 9 count indictment against Hunter Biden alleging: evasion of tax assessment; failure to file and pay taxes; and for filing false or fraudulent tax returns. According to Weiss, Hunter Biden: “engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019, from in or about January 2017 through...

    If you are elderly or disabled, would you feel safe having caregivers with inadequate English-language skills? The recent death of Barbara Rymell in England, as reported in The Telegraph, shows us the danger of bringing in foreign caregivers and medical personnel with inadequate English skills. Against the residential home’s own policy, Barbara was left alone on a stairlift for five minutes. She got off the machine and attempted to walk up the staircase, but she fell back downwards, getting her head caught under the stairlift chair. This predicament was bad enough, but it wasn’t helped by the inadequate English skills...

    In the documentary What Killed Michael Brown?, Shelby Steele coins the term “poetic truth” in order to describe the persistence of the myth that Michael Brown was “executed” by Darren Wilson. Steele calls poetic truth, “a distortion of the actual truth that we use to sue for leverage and power in the world. It is a partisan version of reality, a storyline that we put forward to build our case.” Poetic truth “thri[ves] more by coercion than reason,” accusing all who dispute it of complicity with the ineradicably racist system that governs and has always governed the country. That Darren...

  • Another example of the inability of Democrats to condemn bigotry

    This column today might sound familiar, as I have reported similar examples numerous times before (See previous essays here, here, here, here, and here). Yet, it is important to document the inability of the modern Democratic Party to unequivocally condemn bigotry, because so much of its base and membership are actually are in favor of such things. Yesterday the House passed a resolution condemning the horrible rise of anti-Semitism seen nationwide and globally, mostly expressed during pro-Hamas demonstrations that have often descended into violence and calls for the murder of all Jews in Israel. The resolution [pdf] is quite clear....
