The declassification saga illustrates one of Trump’s most intriguing qualities.

By Justin Katz | September 22, 2022 |

Namely, he uses the methods of the Left, and the Left hates him for it.  Read CBS News’s explainer on the issue at hand: Presidents do have sweeping authority to declassify records, but there is a process that is normally followed. Generally, a president’s instructions to declassify documents are first written down in a memo,…

By Standard of AGW Scientists, Futile for the United States to Abate Its Modest Greenhouse Gases

By Monique Chartier | August 29, 2022 |

Did you know that the United States generates only 12.67% of human-made greenhouse gases (GHG), with the balance generated by all other countries? I sure didn’t, until I went looking for the figure. That’s not much talked about in the media, nor is the fact that at 94%, naturally generated greenhouse gases dwarf human’s contribution…

The administration is raiding the homes of political opponents as well as Catholic schools (in a sense).

By Justin Katz | August 12, 2022 |

Maybe my brain is excessively wired to see connections and patterns, but the raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and the Biden administration’s efforts to bully Catholic schools into promoting radical sexual ideology seem very much connected. Rod Dreher gets us most of the way there, in an essay titled “Trump & Our Late Roman…

Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Whitehouse wants a dictator in the White House.

By Justin Katz | July 22, 2022 |

Actually, it’s worse than that.  Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse wants an American dictator who actively harms our country for the benefit of foreign countries that are mostly hostile to us.  Objectively, the malice or mania necessary for a privileged American to make such declarations as the Wall Street Journal describes is something of…

Biden’s bike fall is a horrible harbinger for our country.

By Justin Katz | June 18, 2022 |

Naturally, the mainstream media is choosing to share video of Joe Biden falling on his bicycle in which you can’t see what actually happened.  Barstool Sports has the good clip: DOWN GOES BIDEN pic.twitter.com/yxHhRWOJyC — Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) June 18, 2022 It wasn’t even one of those stumbles that happens from time to time. The…

Yes, we should probably expect Democrats to have a hard time nationally.

By Justin Katz | June 15, 2022 |

The political commentary crew on CNN pretty uniformly believes Democrats will experience a “trouncing” come November.  Well, look.  That’s what happens when you install a senile old man through questionable means, selling him (to the extent you bother to make the case at all) as a reasonable centrist even though the people who make decisions…

McConaughey is just in the wrong venue.

By Justin Katz | June 8, 2022 |

Gun-control advocates are very pleased with the speech that actor Matthew McConaughey made from the White House podium, but as is typical, people tend not to look beyond agreement to important secondary considerations. By his choice to be a national activist on this issue, rather than a state one, McConaughey blurred his core issue in…
