Idiot Democrat From Houston Doesn’t Have the Faintest Clue Who Bari Weiss Is

How is it that you get yourself elected to Congress and appointed to an important committee, but can’t be bothered to familiarize yourself with the subject matter of a major hearing? If the voters of the 29th District of Texas have any capacity for reflection — notice the word “if” in that phrase — they […]

James Baker’s Amnesia Problem

My podcast partner John Hoge calls attention to the Nixonian quality of the FBI-turned-Twitter-lawyer’s testimony this week: Rep. Jim Jordan asked James Baker, the former FBI general counsel who moved to work at Twitter, whether he communicated with the FBI about the Hunter Biden laptop story before the New York Post was censored on Twitter […]

FINALLY: McCarthy Becomes Speaker

What is normally a pro forma exercise on the first day of the new Congress instead dragged on for four days before reaching its final conclusion in the wee hours of the night: Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was elected House speaker after midnight Saturday on the 15th round of voting, marking the conclusion of an […]

The Shame of Adam Kinzinger

Last week, Tucker Carlson bid a mocking farewell to Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger who, like Liz Cheney and many others, wrecked his career by succumbing to Trump Derangement Syndrome. As much as I enjoyed Carlson’s mockery — and as much as Kinzinger deserved to be mocked as a “male menopause” sufferer — it does not […]

Why Was the Department of Justice Spying on Republican Congressional Staff?

Payback Time: McCarthy Will Boot Infamous Jew-Hater From Committee

Sweet, sweet justice! Incoming House Speaker Kevin McCarthy repeatedly promised over the past couple of years that, when the GOP regains control of the House, he would remove Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from their respective committees. It looks like he intends to follow through on that promise. On […]

Lauren Boebert Reelected

For some reason — I don’t know, I barely pay attention to this kind of stuff — Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert is the one Republican that Democrats most hoped to beat this year. And . . . nope: Democrat Adam Frisch announced Friday that he had called GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert and conceded the race […]

Heckuva Job, Nancy Pelosi: Manager of the Decline of the Democratic Party

It was perhaps predictable, once it became clear that Republicans had won a majority in the House of Representatives, that Nancy Pelosi would resign from the Democratic leadership in the House. She’s 82 years old, after all, but if Democrats had managed to keep their majority, she probably wouldn’t have turned over the Speaker’s gavel. […]
