A water drop and ripples

Why is the Western media always selling a story about the evil of the West?

By Justin Katz | December 4, 2021 |

You’ve probably heard the mainstream media claim that we’re facing the Omicron variant (which may represent the merger of COVID with the common cold) because greedy, racist Westerners were refusing to share their vaccines with Africa.  Drew Holden and Aaron Sibarium suggest in the Washington Free Beacon that this analysis is all wrong: In fact, several…

Blake Filippi's official portrait

Filippi was right to resist the lure of a relatively open campaign space.

By Justin Katz | December 4, 2021 |

Political observers in Rhode Island shouldn’t be surprised by this announcement from Rhode Island House Minority Leader Blake Filippi: Representing the People of Charlestown, Block Island, South Kingstown and Westerly is the best job, one which I hope to continue in the years ahead. I look forward to helping the Republican nominee for Governor, and…

The sun rising or setting

It’s time to check in on our willingness to comply.

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

When I became a vaccine supporter in the spring, my reasoning involved a balance of risks and of tradeoffs.  Over several posts I won’t dig out of the archive right now, I concluded that the risks of the vaccines were extremely low and that they did improve outcomes versus COVID-19, even though the risks posed…

How about an “unceded” holy territory?

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

Well, this is another indication of why the United States should exit the United Nations: The United Nations approved a resolution targeting Israel and denying Judaism’s link to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Wednesday in a 129-11 vote. The resolution referred to the Temple Mount exclusively by its Muslim name, al-Haram al-Sharif. The text…

Homeless man "seeking human kindness"

Progressives are never homeless at the State House.

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

An observer doesn’t have to be cynical to wonder why the Huffington Post published its extensive article warning of the RI Political Co-Op’s division of Ocean State progressives yesterday.  After all, the article was fueled in large part by “a left-wing Rhode Island activist who requested anonymity to protect professional relationships.”  Anonymous sourcing in a case…

Material from Hunter Biden’s laptop references Joe Biden’s dimensia?

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

Sheesh!  As Stephen Green suggests, getting this sort of information out to the public before an election seems like exactly the sort of thing that justify investing power in a news media: Ablow was close to Hunter and also served as his onetime landlord, the book says. In February 2019, Ablow and Hunter discussed hosting a…

A water drop and ripples

At this point, McKee and Council 94 are just spitting in our faces to prove they can.

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

All the mandates.  All the fanatical insistence that naturally acquired immunity, let alone religious or medical scruples, will suffice to avoid vaccination against COVID-19.  And now we read this, regarding the $3,000 vaccine bonuses that Democrat Governor Dan McKee negotiated with government employees in the Council 94 labor union: Workers can get the bonus without…

A white student looks away

Westerly’s teacher training shows how “Culturally Responsive Teaching” smuggles radical racism into the classroom.

By Justin Katz | December 3, 2021 |

In October, the national good-government group Judicial Watch published training documentation from the Westerly, Rhode Island, school department received from a whistleblower.  The training was developed by Rhode Island’s Highlander Institute, which recently transformed from a legitimate educational organization helping students with “learning differences” into one of the state’s leading promoters of the racist ideals…

A painted target and shadow of the shooter

Don’t doubt RI is in the national progressive movement’s sights.

By Justin Katz | December 2, 2021 |

An interesting (and long) article appeared in the Huffington Post today, in which Daniel Marans details the friction within Rhode Island’s progressive movement.  The tone is of fair reportage, but a point of view does come through, starting with the implicit critique of the Political Co-op in the headline:  “A Progressive Civil War Threatens the…

Harvard’s electoral lawfare program is another “believe your lying eyes” moment.

By Justin Katz | December 2, 2021 |

A network of Democrat and progressive legal teams has developed over the past two decades, and last year it arguably succeeded in frauding Joe Biden into the White House.  Now Harvard University is turning on the spicket to create more, as Mark Hemingway reports for RealClearInvestigations: Reporting the launch of the Election Law Clinic in April,…
