And The Media Want To Keep Buried 0 replies
For those who feel as if the coronavirus crisis is never going away, we offer some optimism. Get it here, because lockdown Democrats and their pandemic-cheerleading media allies want to keep the pessimism running high.
On two separate occasions in recent weeks, we’ve presented data that indicate the crisis is winding down. No, this doesn’t mean that infections and deaths will drop to zero. The virus isn’t going away. What it does mean is that the virus isn’t the threat it was when deaths spiked in the middle of April.
This is primarily based on deaths in excess of the
As If Your Freedom Depends
On It — Because It Does 4 replies
President Donald Trump has vowed to move quickly to name a replacement for late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and urged the Senate to vote before the election. Not only is he constitutionally justified in doing so, but the future political stability of our nation depends on it.
The pick, which Trump said will “likely” be a woman, is expected next week. There are a number of highly eligible, Constitution-friendly women suitable for the highest court in the land. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already pledged to move forward with the confirmation hearings, perhaps the most important since
Thorough, Well-Earned Debunking 7 replies
Both Democratic officials and their sycophantic media acolytes have used the slippery phrase “mostly peaceful” to describe the riots that have torn apart America — so much, in fact, that it’s now a cliche. But new reports show just how big a lie “mostly peaceful” truly is.
Just this month, as a CNN reporter stood in front of a burning car in riot-torn Kenosha, Wisconsin, the network’s chyron at the bottom of the screen said “Fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting.” Sorry, they were not “mostly peaceful,” or any of the other false euphemisms used to describe the violent
Middle-Class Boom That Benefited

Not that you’d ever know it from the media blackout, but households have seen the biggest jump in real median income in at least 52 years. The poverty rate is lower than it’s been since at least 1959, the annual Census report on income and poverty shows.
These are incredible achievements that would be leading every newspaper and TV news program if they had happened under a Democratic president. The absence press coverage is even more astounding when you consider that the gains were among lower-income families, women, blacks and Hispanics.
In other words, every constituent group that Democrats claim
Office’? Let’s Hope Not 10 replies
Democrats and never-Trumpers keep warning that if President Donald Trump wins reelection, he will only grow more dictatorial. The more realistic risk is that he will shift leftward, or as the pundit class puts it, “grow in office.” The two announcements he made in the past week are a worrisome sign. “Growing in office” is always the concern when a conservative spends too much time in Washington. Eventually, the nonstop pressure to conform to the government-centered swamp tends to overtake even the most rock-ribbed conservatives. Once they give in, they’re treated like the prodigal son. All grown up.
Possible Coup If Trump Wins In November 31 replies
The strength of America’s elections lies in people’s confidence that votes will be fairly tallied, and that the losing party will bow out gracefully and become the loyal opposition. But what if a loser refuses to acknowledge the results of a free and fair election? What if it instead takes to the streets to commit violence and mayhem? Or even attempts a coup?
We ask because there’s every sign now that the Democrats, in a panic over candidate Joe Biden’s lackluster basement campaign and growing evidence that he is suffering age-related mental impairment, will refuse to acknowledge President Donald Trump

In his op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Walter Olson defends his decision to not vote for Trump four years ago by saying he will double-dog not vote for him this year.
Like every other never-Trumper, the reason is almost entirely personal.
“No modern president has shown so little care for or grasp of how government works … his conduct fell short of what Americans should expect … the lack of impulse control, the vindictive meanness of spirit, the Niagara of lies,” Olson writes.
He hoped Trump would, once in the White House, “put away childish things … and banish
Winners, He’s Actually Advanced Peace 6 replies
After bestowing the Nobel Peace Prize to a series of undeserving recipients in recent decades, the committee has an opportunity to return the award to its former glory. We suggest President Donald Trump for the 2021 laureate.
But we’re a step behind. Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, has already nominated Trump for the prize because the loathed-by-the-left president “has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
Tybring-Gjedde cited the president’s role in the recent peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, as well as his “key role in
They Could Decide The Election 20 replies
A recent IBD/TIPP poll found something that appears to confirm the idea that there are lots of Trump supporters out there who won’t admit it to pollsters.
“Overall, 20% of registered voters say they’re uncomfortable revealing their preferred candidate, but that rises to 28% among independents,” it found.
That’s a shockingly high number and one that should worry anybody who expects Trump to get trounced in November.
Think about it: Which candidate are people likely to be uncomfortable revealing their preference for? The candidate who is being heralded as Mr. Empathy and the savior of the nation? Or the candidate
Matter Is How You Get More Racism 13 replies
Rather than improve race relations, the Black Lives Matter movement has set them back a half-century. Nothing good will come of the bullying, violence and baseless accusations that are filling the news cycle.
Just before President Donald Trump was to start his fourth year in the White House, the state of race relations, according to Gallup, had increased 14 percentage points since he took office. It was an achievement “any president after three years would want to claim, particularly President Obama,” said a CBS reporter.
One would have thought that race relations would have been at their peak during the
And Media Have Turned It Up To 11 6 replies
The Democratic Party and its communications office have been telling the country for some time now that night is day and up is down. But, with the election two months away, the psychological manipulation of the American voter has accelerated.
As we’ve written the past two days, Joe Biden has condemned the riots that have been wrecking cities and killing people since the May 25 death of George Floyd. We’re glad he finally got around to it. Yet he and his party are acting as if they’ve opposed the violence all along and it’s President Donald Trump who has failed
Picked Jacob Blake To Be Their
Saint, They Chose Poorly 27 replies
The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has been tried and convicted by Democrats, the media, and truth-be-damned activists before the case is resolved. It’s a mirror image of the Michael Brown shooting (the officer was cleared) in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd (the officer has yet to go to trial). The difference is this time, pro athletes, pampered and well-paid, joined the mob.
They should be ashamed of their behavior. They quit on the employers who pay their soaring salaries, and estranged themselves from their fans, who provide the dollars the owners
