When Journalists Deride Requests for Public Access in Government

By Justin Katz | June 7, 2021 |

Nicole Solas on Fox & Friends

Nicole Solas only seems suspect from within Tara Granahan’s media bubble.

By Justin Katz | June 7, 2021 |

For twenty minutes of your time, Tara Granahan’s WPRO interview with the South Kingstown mother whom the local school committee nearly sued to stop her from seeking information about their ideological curriculum provides a short lesson in how Rhode Island insiders think. PODCAST: The @TaraGranahan interview with Nicole Solas that everyone is talking about: https://t.co/ci0kpITtTG…

Phil Eil's tweet about Allan Fung

Phil Eil should be honest about the nature of anti-Asian bias.

By Justin Katz | June 7, 2021 |

Phil Eil is a freelance writer and former political editor for the Providence Phoenix, and his response to a recent op-ed by former Republican Cranston Mayor Allan Fung in the Boston Globe is strangely political and bitter: Interesting op-ed from Allan Fung. What I’ve never been able to figure out — and what he doesn’t address in the…

Angelica Infante-Green

The education commissioner should go after the teachers unions for the right reasons.

By Justin Katz | June 4, 2021 |

I’m with Rhode Island Education Commissioner Angélica Infante-Green in believing that negotiating teacher contracts should be a professional endeavor of well-meaning parties and that professional union organizers prevent that from being the case when they aren’t getting their way.  Indeed, from the early months after her arrival in the state, I’ve been saying Infante-Green was…

Kory Jeshua with his daughter

This is the vision with which Americans of all races agree.

By Justin Katz | June 3, 2021 |

A video from (apparently) conservative TikTokker (or whatever they’re called) Kory Yeshua discussing Critical Race Theory alongside his daughter went viral when it made the jump to Twitter, and deservedly so.  Give it a couple minutes of your time:* One of the best videos opposing Critical Race Theory that you’ll ever see. 👏🏼🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/cXOfheV0kJ —…

An arrest has been made in the Bristol “hate sticker” case.

By Justin Katz | May 29, 2021 |

By way of a follow up to my post questioning the news reports about “hate sticker” vandalism in Bristol, I note that an arrest has been made, and it looks like the person in the video from news reports was arrested after investigation.  The report does suggest that the videos showed the subjects placing the…

CBO chart on income and taxes

Sheldon Whitehouse’s Twitter posturing on taxes and income is doubly annoying.

By Justin Katz | May 27, 2021 |

Toes tin-ear Sheldon err in not seeing how it appears when somebody of his wealth and tincture talks like this, or does he correctly assess that his base just wants to hear the sweet, sweet sound of agreement? Rising inequality is a threat to the American way of life. We shouldn’t have a structure that…

Sermon on the Mount by Karoly Ferenczy

Yes, the Democrat establishment is gung-ho on the Great Replacement of the population.

By Justin Katz | May 26, 2021 |

Glenn Reynolds is right: The strategy of promoting a racial shift for political gain is “odious, and Democrats have been openly gloating about it for years.”  As Ann Althouse writes, noting the careful parsing of a New York Times article on the subject: The “Great Replacement” theory is referred to elsewhere in the article, here: “Contrary…
