AOC’s Fake Victimhood Narrative

Why would anyone believe anything she says? “Alexandria Ocasio Smollett” and “AOC Lied” trended on Twitter amidst backlash over Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tale of her experiences during the Capitol Riot. The New York Democrat has repeatedly described fearing for her life during the Jan. 6 riot. In a Monday evening Instagram Live video, she said […]

‘HOLY F***ING S**T!’

The headline is a direct quote from me, when I saw the headline at Ace of Spades a few minutes ago. Joe Biden has appointed Maher Bitar to be Senior Director for Intelligence on the National Security Council. He might as well have named Louis Farrakhan. Bitar is a rather notorious Jew-hater and supporter of […]

Why Are National Guard Still in D.C.?

The people who rioted at the Capitol on Jan. 6 have been arrested on federal charges. Some of them may still be fugitives at large, but insofar as the riot was ever a threat to “our democracy” (a phrase endlessly repeated on CNN), the threat is long since ended. Yet Washington, D.C., was turned into […]

Is It Over Yet?

As we approach the end of Day Three of the Joe Biden presidency, I’m wondering how many voters are already experiencing buyer’s remorse: President Joe Biden’s first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American […]

The TV Show You Didn’t Watch

Yesterday my brother and I went to Denney’s for a late breakfast. They have TV screens around the restaurant, and the Biden inauguration was on every screen, but without sound. So you could say I watched the ceremony — that is to say, I glanced up and saw Joe raise his right hand with his […]

Don’t Worry, I Haven’t Been Captured by Our Alien Reptilian Overlords … Yet

Because I didn’t post anything Monday, I’m sure some of our readers were worried that the shape-shifting alien Lizard People had gotten me. But no, I was just busy doing other stuff Monday, and I apologize if my silence caused any unnecessary concern. Our nation’s capital is full of troops, barricades and barbed wire for […]

Democrats and the Media (But I Repeat Myself) Are Trying to Destroy America

Yesterday, Ace of Spades linked to an essay that included this: Starting in the second decade of the 1900s, certain Communists began seeing in modernism a potential advertisement for the values of a mass society of industrial workers laboring under the direction of a small group of engineers. In other words, this aesthetic — which […]

How Bad Is Philly? Worse Than Chicago

Yesterday I took notice of the awful crime situation in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago, where homicides increased 55% last year. However, as bad as Chicago is — and frankly, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to live in that Democrat-controlled hellhole — Philadelphia is actually worse. Under Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney, violent crime in […]
