Reminder for Catholics who might be confused by Biden.

By Justin Katz | March 26, 2022 |

We’re not supposed to eat meat on Fridays during Lent.  However, yesterday was the Solemnity of the Annunciation, which means the rule of abstaining from meat was suspended for the day.   Whether Biden knew of the suspension, we cannot know.  Even if he didn’t, this would have been a small transgression (especially compared with…

#LetsGoBrandon can’t stop, won’t stop.

By Justin Katz | November 5, 2021 |

This gets better and better. Not only does “Let’s Go Brandon” carry a potent political message, not only does it offer a single unifying phrase, but it’s also getting really fun. It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement! #LGB — Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) November 5, 2021

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 🤣 — CLE mama 🇺🇸 (@cle_mama) September 12, 2021

Rhode Island General Assembly redistricting commission 09/09/21

RI General Assembly Republicans follow the science.

By Justin Katz | September 10, 2021 |

Yesterday, Patrick Anderson of the Providence Journal tweeted the picture used as the featured image in this post.  As Anderson notes, the masking is entirely according to partisan lines.  Unmasked (left to right) are Senators Jessica de la Cruz and Gordon Rogers and Representatives David Place and Brian Newberry. The follow-up comments are interesting, too.  Far-left…
