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 […]

Why Did the Media Suddenly Decide the Hunter Biden Scandal Is Newsworthy?

Blazing Cat Fur: On Wednesday, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, admitted learning “that the US attorney’s office in Delaware had advised” his legal counsel that they were investigating his tax affairs. Yet, this was known long before last month’s presidential election, said Fox News host Tucker Carlson, opening the latest edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, and adding […]


UPDATE 11:10 p.m. ET: I’m calling it for Trump. He’s won Florida and Georgia. North Carolina is looking like a win. He’s leading in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Michigan — MICHIGAN! — Trump now leads by double-digits. We are in Red Wave territory, folks. * * * * * My partner John Hoge and I will […]

Election Eve Prediction Time

  Don’t know who created that meme, I just saw it on Twitter. Election Day is tomorrow, and the time for making predictions is running out. Also, I’m running past deadline on a 2,500-word piece for the print edition of The American Spectator, in which I evaluate the prospects of a post-election civil war. (Spoiler: […]
