Crazy federal spending is how the Left pays its activists.

By Justin Katz | September 27, 2021 |

Nancy Pelosi is swearing that the Democrats’ insanely expensive quasi-infrastructure infrastructure bill will pass this week.  Every time I see these numbers, I remember something I learned during the Obama presidency.  This is how the Left funds its movement — not only union workers but progressive non-profits and others, filtering down to the street level.…

Matt Brown swears in kick-off video

Who wants Matt Brown to be governor? Out-of-state progressive experimenters.

By Justin Katz | September 27, 2021 |

One topic conspicuously not addressed in Matt Brown’s slick new video announcing his candidacy for Rhode Island governor is what qualifies him specifically to run an organization as large and complex as the state government.  Surely a willingness to drop the F-bomb isn’t sufficient in itself.  That omission raises the question asked in the subject of this…

Presence of COVID antibodies by PCR ct

COVID antibodies compared with PCR count shows many positive tests shouldn’t have been “cases.”

By Justin Katz | September 27, 2021 |

Word is that a nearby trampoline park was packed with unvaccinated children over the weekend, with scarcely a mask to be found.  Meanwhile, Rhode Island state senator Alana DiMario is proclaiming the pending approval of the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children between five and 11 as “life changing,” because “the daily stress of weighing every…

A by-the-way note to conservatives on illegal immigrants.

By Justin Katz | September 25, 2021 |

Tucker isn’t wrong in this analysis.  There’s a reason our borders are open and buses and planes are distributing all comers across the country.  But here’s an important point that’s often ignored:  If newly arrived residents are here, and if they’re going to be voters, they might vote with you! That doesn’t mean pandering, and…

Reality’s scriptwriter has it out for the Democrats.

By Justin Katz | September 25, 2021 |

Just a few days ago, we were seeing headlines like, “Former USA National Team Gymnasts Testify Against the FBI Over Botched Larry Nassar Investigation.” Today the news is that “the FBI is investigating a group of male Afghan refugees after they assaulted a female U.S. soldier in New Mexico.” Notice how all the threads are…

Image of COVID as planet Earth

The state Department of Health really wants healthcare workers to be on the lookout.

By Justin Katz | September 25, 2021 |

Talk about cultivating a hostile environment! John DePetro reports that the state Department of Health is encouraging healthcare workers to tattle on coworkers who remain unvaccinated against COVID-19 (whether or not they have acquired immunity through prior exposure).  Center for Professional Boards and Licensing Chief Ellen Balasco ends a recent notice about vaccination requirements thus:…

William Shatner’s becoming an actual rocket man.

By Justin Katz | September 25, 2021 |

Jeff Bezos has recruited Star Trek legend William Shatner to give PR for his personal space program a boost.  Well, I’ll take any excuse to revisit this classic performance:

Today on Flip the Parties: Biden’s tax evasion

By Justin Katz | September 24, 2021 |

Calls of hypocrisy can go too far, but it’s simply too easy to imagine (meaning “to know”) how differently this sort of news would be handled if Biden were a Republican: [Rep. Jim] Banks, the Republican Study Committee chairman, was responding to the New York Post’s report on the findings of the nonpartisan CRS showing…

Entitlement is an illness of government overindulgence.

By Justin Katz | September 24, 2021 |

On one hand, I sympathize with Alexis Santoro, of Cumberland: Santoro first raised the issue in an email on September 1 to Cumberland school officials. “Each year there has been a bus monitor/crossing guard for the bus when the bus has stopped at this location since pound road has a lot of blind spots and…

College professors provide more evidence that critical race theory is not meant to help students or professionals excel.

By Justin Katz | September 24, 2021 |

Professors from multiple states have signed on to the argument that “success and merit” should not be goals of a university, but rather that they’re “barriers,” according to Kate Anderson on Campus Reform (via Instapundit): “Admitting that the normative definitions of success and merit are in and of themselves barriers to achieving the goals of justice, diversity, equity…
