The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Worst. President. Ever.

Most historians consider James Buchanan our worst president, although some would say Jimmy Carter was worse. Yet I think neither Buchanan nor Carter was worse than the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. His latest idiotic utterance: President Joe Biden on Wednesday warned oil and gas companies against increasing prices for consumers as Hurricane Ian […]

Sometimes, It’s Just Too Easy

So I saw this story earlier today: President Joe Biden on Thursday expressed his frustration with Republican governors sending migrants from the Southern border to Democrat-run cities, calling their actions “Un-American.” “Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props,” Biden said. “What they’re doing is simply wrong. It’s un-American. It’s reckless” The […]

The Symbolism of Philadelphia

Joe Biden gave a speech last week in which he gave lip service to things that Democrats don’t actually believe in, e.g., the Constitution and the rule of law, as a pretext to accuse Republicans — all 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump — of being a “threat to our democracy.” Biden spoke […]

Joe Biden’s Blood-Red War Speech

Everybody noticed the optics of the speech Thursday night in Philadelphia: The “blood red” lighting, the Marines standing at attention: It didn’t take long after Biden finished his rancid, combative remarks in Philadelphia for the reviews of the latest divisive screed from “Mr. Unity” to come in, and they predictably were not favorable from those […]

Our Divider-in-Chief Has Done It Again

I was semi-fascist before semi-fascism was cool: President Joe Biden called on Democrats Thursday “to vote to literally save democracy once again” — and compared Republican ideology to “semi-fascism” — as he led a kickoff rally and a fundraiser in Maryland 75 days out from the midterm elections. Addressing an overflow crowd of thousands at […]

Biden’s Illegal Boondoggle Giveaway

It’s not just that Joe Biden’s stroke-of-the-pen student loan giveaway will cost U.S. taxpayers something like $400 billion or more. Nor is it just that this presidential mandate will drive inflation higher. And we haven’t even considered that Biden’s debt-cancellation scheme is regressive — everybody else forced to pay for this gift to a relatively […]

Biden Was Wrong, Kirby Was Right: Albuquerque Muslim Murders Were Not — NOT — Motivated by ‘Hate’

My brother Kirby has a keen sense of probability. We were sitting outside our local convenience store having coffee on Sunday, when he started ranting about a story out of New Mexico to which I hadn’t paid attention. Four Muslim men had been murdered in the span of a few days, and President Biden (or, […]

Joe Biden Has COVID — AGAIN!

Double-vaxxed, double-boosted, and COVID-positive: President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 in a “rebound” case on Saturday, according to the White House. “As described last week, acknowledging the potential for so-called ‘rebound’ COVID positivity observed in a small percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID the President increased his testing cadence, both to protect people around him […]
