Mount Rushmore in the Gun Sights – Politics Article

(John Hinderaker) Some mainstream Democrats are backpedaling on their war against the United States, claiming that their party’s shock troops, Antifa and the like, are only going after Confederate statues. Sure, like Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Frederick Douglass, Ulysses Grant, and so on. As usual, the Democrats count on most people being too uninformed to realize that they are lying through their teeth. But some Democrats are not reticent at all about wanting to tear down America. This…

Mount Rushmore then and now – Politics Article

The Washington Free Beacon has put together the SUPERcuts video below illustrating the Orwellian revision of Mount Rushmore. Past statements pretending to admiration are going down the memory hole. Oh, Big Brother Sibster. And don’t forget: IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. If we didn’t understand before, we should be getting a handle on the importance of this axiom right about now now. Perhaps what we have here is progress of a kind. At this point the Democrats and their media adjunct don’t…

Democrat Congressional Candidate: Report Trump Supporters! – Politics Article

I don’t try to keep up with the daily cascade of insanity from the Left. Even if you did nothing else, it would be impossible to catalog a fraction of it, let alone try to respond intelligently. I take it, though, that Democratic politicians if pressed might disassociate themselves from the wildest excesses of the Twitter mob, while at the same time never parting company in any important way with the nihilist, anti-American Left. Here is an instance, however, where…

Why Didn’t Democrats See This Coming? – Politics Article

Technology is a good thing when it works as it is supposed to. But when it doesn’t, it can be a huge mess. The problem in Iowa is a case in point. After months of planning and preparations, the Iowa Democratic Party delivered a whopper last night. More to the point, they failed miserably. The question is this: Couldn’t they have seen this coming? If they planned to use an App for reporting, was that App fully tested? Were those…

Science and “Science” | Power Line – Politics Article

Politicians love to say that they are “following the science.” To hear them talk, you would think they spend hours poring over data and they go where the numbers drive them. If only. The COVID epidemic has brought out politicians’ faux reliance on “science” in spades. As good an example as any is my state, Minnesota, where our governor, Tim Walz, has offered one tribute after another to “science” as he has driven our state off the road and into…

I love Joe Biden but I Won’t Vote for Him. Here is Why – Politics Article

The moment former Vice President Joe Biden declared his candidacy for president of United States, I knew I had my candidate. I love “Old Joe”. For starters, he was President Barack Obama’s vice president and right-hand man. For me, that was all I needed to know. I knew some of his past actions weren’t always what I would have wished. I knew he has cast a few votes that, in hindsight, he probably regrets. I also knew he has said…

When States Go Wild | National Review – Politics Article

President Donald Trump speaks prior to signing an executive order on police reform at a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House, June 16, 2020. (Leah Millis/Reuters) In past rioting, over the last 60 years, mayors, police chiefs, and governors restored law and order. They often beseeched the federal government for backup when they were unsure of their efforts. Now, in a first, they are more often passive in the face of massive lawlessness and disorder. Some blue-state…

Keisha Lance Bottoms emerges as possible Biden running mate – Politics Article

I very much doubt that Joe Biden’s selection of a running mate will affect the outcome of this year’s election. However, the selection is important because (1) Biden has a pretty good chance of winning the election, in my opinion and (2) considering his age and diminished capacity, there’s a fair chance that, if elected, Biden won’t serve four years. By deciding to select a woman, Biden has already restricted the field. If he also decides to select an African-American,…

4chan Trolls Received Direction from White House? – Politics Article

Right wing backers of President Donald Trump’s campaign who flooded the telephone lines of the Iowa Democratic Party this week may have received directions from The White House and Trump campaign officials. The actions by the trolls made it impossible for Iowa precinct chairs to report caucus results. Our sources told us this morning there are indications that someone in the White House or Trump campaign was directing the operations. “Yes, we are starting to see clues here and there…

John Bolton Blames Democrats for Botching Impeachment Despite Refusing to Testify – Politics Article

John Bolton has blamed Democrats for botching the impeachment process despite his own refusal to testify. The former National Security Advisor branded the inquiry “partisan.” Bolton spoke to PBS about his new book, The Room Where It Happened. He responded to Democrats saying his testimony would have been vital. “I think they know that the impeachment effort was a massive failure, and I think they’re looking for excuses,” Bolton said. “The fact is, we have a model in this country of how…

Sen. Bernie Sanders Wins New Hampshire, Other Democrats Drop Out – Politics Article

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday. He beat Mayor Pete Buttigeig by less than 4000 votes at the last count. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota was third. Perhaps the surprising result was turned in by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts who had been expected to do well considering the proximity of her state to New Hampshire. She finished fourth with 9.3 percent of the vote. Former Vice President Joe Biden all but gave up…

House Dems investigate Roger Stone sentencing – Politics Article

The Michael Flynn prosecution is over, assuming no en banc review of the panel’s decision putting an end to it. However, we can expect plenty of moaning from Democrats and their media allies, as well, I assume, as congressional hearings. For the moment, though, it’s the Roger Stone prosecution that Democrats are investigating. Bill Otis has the details. Stone was sentenced by a liberal Democrat judge to 40 months in prison. But House Dems wanted a much longer sentence, and…

Mayor Michael Bloomberg Says Only Minorities Commit Crimes – Politics Article

For a man who was the Mayor of one of the most diverse cities in the world, the question of crime should not be a racial issue. But not to Mayor Michael Bloomberg. To him, crimes only happen in the black and brown communities and only minorities commit crimes. Speaking to a mostly white audience in 2015, Bloomberg said police throughout the U.S. should focus on minority communities “because that’s where all the crime is.” Bloomberg who was speaking to…

Eliot Engel: Congressional Champion of Human Rights – Politics Article

Rep. Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.) in Washington on October 17, 2019 (Erin Scott / Reuters) Eliot Engel, the longtime Democratic congressman from the Bronx, is in the news because he has a tough primary: He may be upended tomorrow. To read a news story about this, go here. I’m pretty sure that Engel is my favorite Democratic member of Congress, which you may say is a low bar — and you would be right. But I have long admired Engel,…

How the Democrats Collude to Enable Voter Fraud – Politics Article

One of the most pernicious phenomena of modern times is the collusive lawsuit. This is how it works: a left-wing organization sues a government agency that is also controlled by the left. The lawsuit alleges that the agency is obliged to do something that the agency would like to do, but the Democrats can’t get it passed. Then the parties–supposedly adverse, but actually in collusion–“settle” the case by having the agency agree to do what it wanted to do all…
