  • Biden Touts Vaccination Rate As Evidence He’s Been Able To ‘Unite The Country’

    05/29/2021 3:34:25 PM PDT · by Tipllub · 65 replies
    President Joe Biden on Friday argued the country’s rising vaccination rate was the first sign he’s delivering on his promise to unify the nation, even as he said Congress—which was voting down a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riots— seems more divided than ever. Speaking in Virginia, Biden said if the U.S. is able to reach his July 4 goal of vaccinating 70% of adults, it will be the “first real evidence” the country is coming together.
  • Puerto Ricans Deserve More Than Empty, Big Government Promises

    Between the pandemic, Hurricane Maria, and the recent earthquakes, the last four years have been an immense struggle for Puerto Rico. But as the island rebuilds, it must be careful to do so in a manner that corrects past mistakes and lays a stronger foundation for the future. This is especially true for Puerto Rico’s electrical infrastructure. Systemic problems with Puerto Rico’s electricity were obvious even before the recent natural disasters. Just two months before Hurricane Maria made landfall in 2017, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) declared bankruptcy on $9 billion in bond debt. In the hurricane’s aftermath,...
  • Team Biden Intends to Never Let Its Manufactured Crises Go to Waste

    My major takeaway from President Biden's joint address to Congress is that he and his handlers are continuing to employ the Democrats' primary strategy from the Obama years: Never let a crisis go to waste.To scare the American people into accepting his reckless spending proposals, Biden is leveraging the pandemic, which means he is framing it as still hot, raging and dangerous, while immodestly taking undeserved credit for the progress that we've made.To begin, he staged an image of crisis for television viewers by having a group of entirely vaccinated people unnecessarily wear masks and socially distance, though Massachusetts Institute...

    Editor's Note: This piece was co-authored by Congresswoman Lisa McClain.David Frum’s article entitled “The Worst Outcome” for The Atlantic (March 11, 2020 article) stated “if somebody other than Donald Trump were in the White House, the Coronavirus Crisis would not be unfolding this way … Trump’s actions have ensured the worst possible outcomes. The worst possible outcome for public health, the worst possible outcome for the American economy, the worst possible outcome for American global leadership.” The media in general, and the Democratic Party highly supported Frum’s view giving it inertia throughout 2020 while creating a view of gross incompetence...

    Is it too much to ask to know the name of the federal government employee who, on our behalf, shot an unarmed veteran who was, at worst, trespassing in a public building? Apparently, it is, since no one in our glorious, licensed, and neutered regime media seems to want to tell us. They know. They all know. They just don’t want you to know.We know the identity of the incompetent cop who shot the guy with a warrant (for carrying a concealed weapon without permit, which is not even a crime in nearly two dozen free states – racist Democrat...

    Whether you agree with Trump’s immigration policies or not, Joe Biden and his team own this current border crisis — no one else.resident Joe Biden has essentially told the American people the buck does not stop at the Oval Office — at least not on the border crisis. Having dismantled many of the immigration policies the Trump administration used to regain control of our southern border, Biden administration officials now insist the current mess is somehow all Trump’s fault. Unfortunately, the facts are not on their side. In truth, the Trump administration reformed a broken immigration system — one that...

    Imagine if you had a job. A good job, one that required skill and critical thinking and had a broad impact in the community where you lived. A job you didn't just show up to do. It was a job you were good at, and because of it, you were able to provide a roof over your family's head, put your children through college or help pay for their wedding, and once a year, it gave you the ability to carve out a week or two to take the family on vacation. Now imagine that job becomes the center of...
  • A Suggestion for Donald Trump

    Washington -- Saturday was a good day for the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. The First Amendment has been validated once again, this time by the United States Senate. Simply by speaking his mind, Citizen Donald Trump committed no crime on Jan. 6. That was when he addressed a large crowd telling them they should march "peacefully" and "patriotically." He told them they should "fight like hell." Those are words frequently employed by politicians, and Trump's defense team gave us plenty of blood-curdling examples of Democrats uttering precisely those words in an angry montage Friday....
  • Trump's Senate Trial Rests on the Claim that He Lied About Vote Fraud, He Didn't

    Former-president Donald Trump’s Senate trial for his January 6 speech “inciting” a riot at the US Capitol rests on the claim that he lied about vote fraud in the November election. Put aside that Trump asked “everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically, make your voices heard." That he only wanted them to show their support for legislators who were supporting him. That the assault on the Capitol's security lines started before Trump began speaking.While Trump’s questioning the integrity of the November election “incited” violence, President Biden can liken Senators Ted Cruz...

    With little more than a week and a half of the Biden Administration under our belts, America has already contracted a raging case of "buyer’s remorse" when it comes to our 46th president.It began when Joe Biden—who mercilessly taunted President Donald J. Trump for “not having a plan” to stop the China Virus as he campaigned against Trump from his basement—addressed that issue two days after being inaugurated. “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic over the next several months,” he told a stunned nation. His beleaguered and comically underprepared press secretary, Jen We’ve-Only-Been-Here-Fill-In-The-Blank-Days Psaki,...

    If the first week of leftist insanity gushing from President Joe Biden's executive pen doesn't vindicate Donald Trump's supporters in full measure, I don't know what could. Scratch that. There is much more to come. Trump supporters have long touted the former president's impressive policy achievements as proof they were wise in supporting him and correct that an outsider could get results. We've learned in the past few months who is running this country: the media, the social media oligarchy, cancel culture and leftist dark money being poured into the system. These forces have weaponized identity politics and empowered the...
  • The Controversy Over Trump's Pardons and Commutations Highlights Longstanding Problems With Clemency

    01/27/2021 5:34:24 AM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | January 27, 2021 | Jacob Sullum
    When Donald Trump pardoned Steve Bannon last week, the outgoing president blocked the former White House strategist's prosecution for bilking donors to an organization that claimed to be raising money for a wall along the border with Mexico. When Trump granted a commutation to Craig Cesal, by contrast, he freed a man who had already served 17 years of what was originally a life sentence for repairing trucks that were used to transport marijuana. As those examples reflect, Trump's acts of clemency mixed favors to cronies with relief for genuinely deserving federal prisoners hit with grossly disproportionate penalties. The controversy...

    The Biden administration must take serious steps to ensure China ceases its exploitation of the COVID-19 crisis in ways that threaten our national security.Some two decades ahead of schedule, on Jan. 12, the Trump administration declassified its Indo-Pacific Strategic Framework, a document outlining its national security strategy regarding Asia. The document is critical, and the timing of its declassification was telling.As National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien noted in a statement announcing its release, the framework “has provided overarching strategic guidance for implementing the 2017 National Security Strategy within the world’s most populous and economically dynamic region.”By making the document...

    As Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America today, while the U.S. Senate takes up the second impeachment attempt against Donald J. Trump by the House of Representatives, we are left with some thorny issues that deserve answers sooner than later.Looking Beyond WordsAs Nathaniel Fischer reminds us, “When judging a statesman, we must look beyond his words and values to assess his true impact. While good values can play an important role, impact also depends on prudence to navigate contemporary challenges, the work ethic to push for results, and the...
  • Biden's Timid Plan to Fight COVID-19

    As COVID-19 mutates, it's becoming more contagious than the virus that invaded the U.S. about a year ago. A trip to the grocery with a mask on, which used to be low risk, is becoming riskier. As cases and deaths increase rapidly, people are scared and upset. They're spending hours on websites and hotlines struggling unsuccessfully to get vaccine appointments. President-elect Joe Biden's vaccine distribution plan, which he announced Friday, doesn't offer them much hope. Biden said he'll open 100 federal vaccine sites in school gyms, community centers and stadiums the first month. That's for the entire nation. We're in...

    Joe Biden says he'll "advance racial equity" by making "bold investments" in "Affordable Housing," aiding "businesses owned by Black and Brown people," establishing an "Equity Commission," etc. Gosh, that'll do it. Others demand reparations for slavery, more social programs and defunding the police. Yet, economist Thomas Sowell says, "I haven't been able to find a single country in the world where policies advocated for Blacks in the United States lifted any people out of poverty." Sowell's a Black man who grew up in poverty. His father died before he was born, and his mother died soon after. "We were much...

    It's been obvious for quite a while that our country is coming apart at the seams. People on all sides are upset, and they want to punish their political opponents. We aren't able to disagree in a productive way. We demonize one another; we are too partisan; and we are definitely too angry. This isn't unique to the right or the left. It's all of us. If the riots in Washington, and those before them in cities across America, didn't prove we have grown out of control, then nothing will. There were, of course, well-meaning people in Washington who were...

    President Donald Trump's two greatest foreign policy accomplishments both involve departures from outmoded paradigms that had, for decades, enraptured bipartisan neoliberal elites: unprecedented Arab-Israeli rapprochement in the Middle East and an assertive China containment strategy in the Asia-Pacific. On the former front, Trump boldly departed from the misbegotten "inside-out" conflict resolution approach, which elevated to the forefront the need for Israeli capitulation to Palestinian-Arab intransigence; on the latter front, Trump became the first president since Richard Nixon's famous 1972 trip to China to openly call into question our relationship with that ascendant, hegemonic Communist regime. The key difference is that,...
  • Instead of the 25th Amendment, House Should Invoke 12th

    While House Democrats improperly invoke the 25th Amendment to try to remove President Trump, House Republicans should be using the 12th Amendment to give him four more years. Last week 138 Representatives from 35 states voted in favor of Trump by objecting to the fraudulent Biden electors from Pennsylvania. dir="ltr">The significance of that vote in the wee hours last Thursday morning is that more than 2/3rds of the states, which is the quorum required by the 12th Amendment, objected to a central part of the election certification. That was after the electoral count was interrupted by the misnamed “insurrection,” so...

    There seems to be only one area of common ground in our country today: agreement that something is wrong. But regarding what that "something" is, and what we need to do, there is profound disagreement throughout the nation. The violence in which the sacred ground of our nation's Capitol building was violated by unruly hooligans, resulting in the death of five, is a low point in our history. Clearly, something is wrong. But we won't be able to fix it until we define it correctly. Those on the right are entirely correct that the tone of violence, chaos and nihilism...
