Are You a Terrorist Threat? Do You Spread ‘Malicious Content Online’?

If we’re going to start pointing fingers at “extremists,” what about you? Or me? Who among us is safe from the shadow of suspicion? President Joe Biden’s administration announced their plans to create ways for Americans to report radicalized friends and family to the government, in an effort to fight domestic terrorism. In a conversation […]

The Vindication of President Trump

Donald Trump took a well-deserved victory lap this week in an interview with Newsmax, among other things pointing out that he was an early proponent of the increasingly accepted theory that the COVID-19 pandemic originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology: “I said it right at the beginning, that’s where it came from,” Trump said.

Why Do Democrats Want a 9/11-Style Capitol Riot ‘Truth Commission’?

They can’t quit him. Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are unable to let go of their “Orange Man Bad” obsession with Donald Trump.

How to Maintain Your Sanity

Some readers have noticed that I have barely commented at all about the legal wrangling over the presidential election. My post on Monday (“The Margin of Theft”) laid out a few points of circumstantial evidence pointing toward fraud in “battleground” states. If you believe Democrats stole the election, I’m totally with you, but the real […]

‘The Third Time It’s Enemy Action’

  “Mr. Bond, they have a saying in Chicago: ‘Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.’” California Republican Omar Navarro invoked Goldfinger’s famous quote in questioning the timing of the COVID-19 outbreak that not only infected President Trump and the First Lady, but also Trump’s campaign manager and two Republican […]

The Shark Has Been Infinitely Jumped: Russians Controlling Black Lives Matter?

  “I’m Not Making This Up, You Know,” says my podcasting partner John Hoge, reacting to the latest madness from Adam Schiff: SCHIFF: The peaceful protests, I think, are calling out, in a very important way, the murder of so many black men and women at the hands of police.
