Billionaire Dictator Tom Steyer Has a ‘Solution’ for the Housing ‘Crisis’

  Anyone who has read Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy understands the worldview of “progressive” billionaire Tom Steyer. There is no problem that cannot be solved, such people believe, if (a) we put “enlightened” people in charge, and (b) we give them unlimited power and taxpayer […]

Beto Beaten by Buttigieg in Debate

  The very first time I heard Pete Buttigieg speak — during my trip to South Carolina in March — I was impressed by him. Of course, his policy ideas are all entirely wrong, but Buttigieg’s demeanor and delivery are excellent. He combines a policy wonk’s mastery of details with a folksy Midwestern manner in […]

‘Stupid and Crazy’: Debates Expose Democrat Party at War With Itself

  After Marianne Williamson emerged as the surprise winner of Tuesday’s Democrat presidential debate, the second night’s performance on Wednesday saw Joe Biden get tag-teamed by his rivals, and Tulsi Gabbard turning the tables on Kamala Harris. Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) have become dismayed by these donnybrooks: Democratic lawmakers were left […]

‘Dark Psychic Forces’ 2020

  As John Hoge reminds his readers this morning, when I went to South Carolina in March to cover Marianne Williamson’s presidential campaign, I was the only national reporter covering her. Nobody thought she had a chance, but last night in the CNN debate, she got the biggest applause of the night with her advocacy […]

Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Meanwhile the second night will feature a rematch between former […]

Democrat Debate Post-Mortem: MSNBC’s Obvious Bias and the ‘Beautiful Lunatic’

  The 10 candidates onstage for Round 2 of the Democratic National Committee debates Thursday night spoke for a combined total of about 66 minutes. Four of those candidates (Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg) consumed 45:21 of that time. In other words, 40% of the candidates got almost 70% of the […]

DNC Debate Night I: The Aftermath

Stephen Green nails it: “It was a high-speed multiperson press conference where the questions were asked by cheerleaders. That’s the show the DNC wanted, and it’s the show NBC delivered.” Julian Castro had the biggest gaffe of the night: In the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Wednesday, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development […]

First Round of Democrat Presidential Debates Tonight at 9 p.m. ET on MSNBC

Ten candidates, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and washed-out wonderboy Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, will take the stage tonight in Miami, and i’ve got my TV tuned to MSNBC already. The pre-debate discussion — currently being anchored by Nicolle Wallace — is insane. Can’t imagine how the actual debate will be. UPDATE: Swear to God, […]
