Joe Biden "We will not forget"

The innocent must beware of Biden’s threat never to forgive or forget.

By Justin Katz | October 12, 2021 |

Catching up on podcast listening over the weekend, I was reminded of Joe Biden’s declaration (video) after the terrorist attack on Kabul airport while his administration was struggling in its shamefully botched retreat from Afghanistan: To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not…

Rhetoric and reality have become two different things with Raimondo and the Biden administration.

By Justin Katz | October 5, 2021 |

In the Reuters article I mentioned the other day, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was so bold as to say this: “We are going to look to work with our allies to counteract China’s anticompetitive behavior,” Raimondo said. “That’s a big difference between the last administration’s approach and our administration’s approach.” She said tariffs on…

Raimondo’s positioning is an unsettling thought.

By Justin Katz | October 1, 2021 |

My goodness.  How did the United States wind up with Gina Raimondo front and center as potentially the most significant trade war the century bubbles? Raimondo said Beijing is reneging on its phase one trade deal with the former U.S. administration in 2020. The deal, signed by the Chinese regime, aimed to vastly increase Chinese…

Ho hum… attacks on Christians in Africa.

By Justin Katz | September 30, 2021 |

I can’t help but wonder whether the ideologies directing our domestic politics affect the amount of coverage this sort of incident gets: An estimated 49 people, including women and children, were killed in a two-hour-long attack by Muslim Fulani herdsman who “came in large numbers and began shooting at anything on sight,” according to the…

The Taliban is forcing women out of jobs and into the kitchen.

By Justin Katz | September 21, 2021 |

It’s weird how American progressives can tolerate no conservative policies in other American states to accommodate a different level of respect for human life, greater acknowledgment of natural and traditional qualities of genders, and more reverence for religious freedom, but news like this is apparently not an issue: The Taliban terrorist group has ordered the…

Tucker puts the Milley scandal bluntly: treason.

By Justin Katz | September 15, 2021 |

This is surreal and shocking: Watch the latest video at Add it to the sense that public health experts, right down to people’s doctors (anecdotally) seem to be following political winds in their advice related to COVID-19, and it sure feels like our society is drifting in a stormy sea.  The people in roles…

There needs to be a movie about the “Pineapple Express”

By Marc Comtois | August 27, 2021 |

No, not a sequel, but a movie about the inspiring story coming out of Afghanistan about “an all-volunteer group of American veterans of the Afghan war launched a final daring mission on Wednesday night dubbed the “Pineapple Express” to shepherd hundreds of at-risk Afghan elite forces and their families to safety…”  Hollywood used to be able…

Why is the State Department turning away military interpreters from rescue?

By Justin Katz | August 25, 2021 |

With the caveate that chaos makes it hard to know what’s going on and easy to get a partial story, this seems like a travesty. The original story comes from the New York Times, but reading some of the implicitly pro-Biden replies to the linked tweet trying to cast doubt on it raises an important point: …
