All Hands On Deck

It has been said, in these pages and elsewhere, that conservatives win arguments by telling the truth, while liberals win by concealing it.

No one claiming to have a monopoly on veracity should be taken seriously. Most folks, from all political stripes, lie easily and often. As we used to say about Bubba Clinton, “If his lips are moving, he is lying.”

If It Weren’t for Double Standards, Democratic Leadership Would Have No Standards At All

One of the advantages of being a leftist/Democratic leader/Democratic socialist in today’s political environment is you are almost never held accountable. Your own supporters, party leaders, grassroots base, and most of the mainstream media never call you out for hypocrisy, changing positions on a moment’s notice, or lying.

Last week, VP Harris had a discussion on women’s empowerment with Bill Clinton. If not completely immune to widespread media criticism, they would have been vilified for this.

Did Biden’s News Conference Put His Competence Issue to Rest?

Joe Biden’s much anticipated news conference was held Thursday afternoon. Why was it much anticipated? Because Biden is into three months in the White House and hasn’t had a presser prior to yesterday’s event. By contrast, President Trump made himself available to the media routinely and without reservations. He sparred and battled with the nitwits who makeup today’s uber-biased – yet gravitas-free – press corp. That’s what a real leader does.

Burgers and Beer, My Place, July 4

What are the most significant events of “our lifetimes?” For the sake of discussion, let’s say post-Viet Nam. What would you consider the most impactful historical development in that time period?

You could make a good argument that it is 911. That led to a temporary spirit of unity in the nation and to a subsequent focus on terrorism. But as significant as that was, I think the long-term effects of the pandemic are even more impactful.

When a Handful of Crises Isn’t Enough For Joe Biden’s Cabal

This article originally appeared at American Thinker.


The Biden administration has enjoyed no honeymoon. The cabal that addled Joe Biden fronts really didn’t want one. Bridge-building, comity, and compromise are passé. What Ron Klain, Susan Rice, and a knot of plutocrats and “progressives” who pull Joe’s strings want are crises. Manufactured crises are just as good as the real deals. They’re opportunities not to be wasted.

Is Elections Fraud Here to Stay?

Jay Valentine’s article at today’s American Thinker deserves a shout out. It’s disturbing, because what Valentine suggests is that the massive fraud in the 2020 presidential elections (at least) amounts to “sovereign crime.” In other words, crimes that were either actively or passively engaged in by those in government. A public-private partnership in stealing the elections existed, which makes it profoundly disturbing. And it’ll happen again… if big changes don’t happen soon enough.

It’s Mourning in America, Says Biden the Mortician

My first impression of Joe Biden’s Thursday night speech was: “Who put a mortician in charge of crowd control?”

That’s how the oft-befuddled Joe came off: a dour, droning purveyor of weepy – and manipulative – sentiment and gloom. Spring is about to spring, but for Joe and his Democrats, it’s Mourning in America. A perpetual gray hangs over these United States because power-tripping Democrats mean to plum this “crisis” for everything they can squeeze out of it.

Narcissists on Parade

A friend from Terre Haute assures me there is a headstone in town with the inscription “Here lies a Democrat, a father, and an honest man.” His question was why they put three people in the same grave?

A friend in Louisiana used to say voters there didn’t expect their politicians to be corrupt, they demanded it.

The Creepy Shadowing of Biden by Harris

I remarked to a colleague the other day that doesn’t it seem creepy that anytime Joe Biden surfaces for a – fleeting – public appearance, more often than not, Kamala Harris is lurking in the background? Does it not seem like an exec who’s privately informed his higher ups that he plans to retire but will slow walk it to give his heir apparent a chance to get familiar with whatever she needs to become familiar with?

Is the Cuomo Sex Scandal a Diversion?

Anyone else find it convenient that a sex scandal involving embattled New York governor Andrew Cuomo would pop up just as serious allegations of a coverup over COVID nursing home deaths were hitting the front pages?

That’s not to say that charges of Cuomo making inappropriate advances on female staffers are unserious. It’s to suggest that the Democratic establishment and the MSM may have every reason to divert attention from what is the greatest scandal emerging from a full year of misbegotten COVID lockdowns.
