A water drop and ripples

Contrasting coverage when people lie to the FBI is instructive.

By Justin Katz | September 16, 2021 |

Remember the massive coverage and overheated rhetoric (continuing to this day) when the FBI tangled General Michael Flynn into a “false statement”?  Compare that memory with this just-the-facts coverage of a Democrat National Committee lawyer’s predicament in the New York Times.   The headline is in the passive voice: “Durham Is Said to Seek Indictment of Lawyer…

Tucker puts the Milley scandal bluntly: treason.

By Justin Katz | September 15, 2021 |

This is surreal and shocking: Watch the latest video at foxnews.com 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…

Racist Democrat Party poster from the Civil War era

A prime example of controlling the present to control the past to control the future.

By Justin Katz | September 15, 2021 |

Owing to the fact that a local union official and I have the same name, I’ve been peripherally following a controversy in Boca Raton, Florida, involving an unnamed teacher who was suspended for showing his high school history class Civil War–era political imagery, including the one used as the featured image for this post.  These…

Clueless Biden copies Trump’s first-responders photo-op and gets photo bombed.

By Justin Katz | September 12, 2021 |

Priceless.  And photos are from two angles, so it’s really unheard of Photoshopping if it’s fake. And the boy in the red shirt 🤣 pic.twitter.com/oML0EqumNe — CLE mama 🇺🇸 (@cle_mama) September 12, 2021

A water drop and ripples

Typical obnoxiously dishonest and divisive Biden.

By Justin Katz | September 10, 2021 |

Thursday, issue one of the most direct rhetorical assaults on tens of millions of Americans that most of us have ever heard from the White House.  Friday, call for unity and respect… on the same day news comes out that he accidentally drone-killed an ally and his young children during a performative counterattack against ISIS.…

Jim Langevin apparently has the typical left-wing variation of pro-life belief…

By Justin Katz | September 10, 2021 |

… which is to say they believe that unborn babies are human beings with a right to life until such time as their opinion on the matter can make a difference.  Note how the RI Congressman explains himself: “Although I remain personally opposed to abortion, as a matter of public policy, my position has evolved,”…

Joe Biden's smile.

Biden’s vaccine mandate seems strategically divisive to create two classes of people and businesses.

By Justin Katz | September 10, 2021 |

There are so many angles to debate with Joe Biden’s play to force every American company with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines among its employees, but for the moment, think about how crazy it is economically.  The United States is in the position of having more jobs than people are willing to fill,…

Don’t expect much from newly awakened anti-Trumpers.

By Justin Katz | September 2, 2021 |

Glenn Reynolds posted on Instapundit some tweets from Meghan McCain saying she doesn’t recognize Biden as the man who “helped [her] through pain and grief.”  She worries for the near future of our country, saying, “this is just as chaotic as Trump, just in a different way.” She can say that again.  Trump’s term in office…

It’s difficult to see what would turn Biden’s approval slide around.

By Justin Katz | September 2, 2021 |

Approval of Biden has crashed across multiple polls, as Nick Arama reports on RedState: On top of that, the latest Rasmussen numbers found that 52% want Biden to resign over the disaster of the Afghanistan withdrawal, while 39% disagree. But that wasn’t all. An even bigger number agreed with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that Biden deserved…

Biden’s rhetoric is sleazy, lying snake-oil salesman stuff.

By Justin Katz | September 1, 2021 |

It’s getting pretty hard to take this stuff: President Joe Biden pointed to the U.S. competition with China as a reason for America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, in a speech on Aug. 31 declaring the end of the 20-year conflict in the war-torn nation. … “It’s about ending an era of major military operations to remake…
