The Democrats’ convention is painful to watch — a display of nonstop demagoguery about “saving the planet” from pols who can’t even save America’s cities. Pundits purr that the Democrats offer a “return to normalcy.” But almost everything about their agenda is abnormal — from leaving America’s border open to defunding the police to imposing transgenderism on America’s youth. The Democrats take no interest in the basic requirements of running a country and instead tout what ruins one. Notice how little they talk about the essential functions of government while blathering on about extraneous ones. The party of lockdowns, shutdowns, and national mask mandates

The timing could not have been more inconvenient for Democrats. The day before they eulogized the Black Lives Matter movement and elevated it to the centerpiece of their national convention, a white man was dragged out of his pickup truck by BLM protesters, kicked in the head and beaten almost to death. Even more inconvenient was the fact that the victim, laborer Adam Haner, had been trying to stop these “mostly peaceful” social-justice warriors from attacking a transgender woman at the time. You couldn’t make it up.
it’s not enough to lift Biden 0 replies
In December of 2007, Washington Post columnist David Broder began a column this way: “Barack Obama has become a one-trick pony. But what a trick it is!” Broder went on to summarize the rookie senator’s marvelous stump speech in the presidential race. He called the performance “a thing of beauty, a 40-minute oration delivered without notes that is powering his gains in the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3 and the first primary here in New Hampshire five days later. Hillary Clinton has nothing to match it.”

Judge Judy is taking legal action on the other side of the bench. The 77-year-old television personality — full name Judy Sheindlin — has slapped Rebel Entertainment Partners (REP) with a lawsuit seeking over $22 million for declaratory relief and alleging unlawful business practices and unjust enrichment, according to Deadline. The filing comes just two weeks after REP filed a $5 million complaint citing breach of contract against Sheindlin and a handful of CBS entities over claims that disgraced former CBS boss, Les Moonves, did some corporate sleight-of-hand to avoid answering to the network’s Board of Directors that resulted in it not getting the money it believes it’s owed.
Kamala Harris does not want to be the president of the United States. She wants to be the queen of the post-constitutional remnants of what used to be the United States. On first reading, this might seem like a hysterical and overblown claim, but it’s actually quite easy to support. All one has to do is read the description of the president’s duties in Article II of the Constitution and compare it with anything and everything Harris has ever said she would do if she found herself occupying the post; the two simply do not match up. In fact, judging by her own words and deeds,
White House doctor about Biden, ‘He’s just lost’ 10 replies
Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician to Presidents Obama and Trump is speaking out about his impression of Joe Biden’s physical and mental fitness for office. “The best way I can describe every time I see him is that he’s just lost,” Jackson said. “I won’t make any particular diagnosis about dementia … but what I will say is that something is not right,” continued the doctor, who just won a GOP congressional primary in Texas. Asked whether he’s comfortable with the idea of Biden assuming the top executive position in the country, Jackson said, “I’m not.”
Watching the long slog of the second night of the Democrat’s convention, a famous Winston Churchill line came to mind: “Take this pudding away—it has no theme!” Old and young, progressive and super progressive, left and far left, black, white, Asian, Latino, Native American — they all had something to say. But if there was a theme running through the night, I couldn’t find it. Oh, yes, Donald Trump bad, got that. Really, really bad. Ok, got that, too. Then what?
Washington- It is the dog days of summer, and so we might as well talk about one of the dogs. I have in mind Ghislaine Maxwell, the apparent sex maniac who is now accused of all manner of horrendous crimes committed with young girls whom she allegedly trained to be sex slaves for the vile Jeffrey Epstein, who is often called a “billionaire.” Incidentally, I would bet he made his millions — somewhat less than billions — by blackmailing his wealthy friends after catching them in the act with the young girls he provided them. It is rumored that he had his various habitats installed with hidden cameras and filming equipment.

T he Democrats’ pundit class has a Joe Biden agenda problem. On the one hand, they are devoted to reassuring centrist voters that Biden is a soothing moderate because of things he did decades ago (say, the 1994 crime bill), because he talked down some of the most ridiculous of the left wing’s policy proposals (notably “Medicare for All”) in the primary, or because he does not speak the language of the woke “defund the police” faction. But at the same time, they are hard at work loudly telling the Bernie/Warren/AOC wing of their party: Don’t worry, Joe won’t stop you from getting what you want.
they know what happened to ‘Lost Colony’ 11 replies
BUXTON, N.C. — The English colonists who settled the so-called Lost Colony before disappearing from history simply went to live with their native friends — the Croatoans of Hatteras, according to a new book. “They were never lost,” said Scott Dawson, who has researched records and dug up artifacts where the colonists lived with the Indians in the 16th century. “It was made up. The mystery is over.” Dawson has written a book, published in June, that details his research. It is called “The Lost Colony and Hatteras Island,” and echos many of the sentiments he has voiced for years. A team of archaeologists, historians, botanists, geologists and others

PR Pros Combine to Con America 4 replies
A pledge of allegiance by five or so White kids. Clean cut. Again: Clean cut. Just like the kids whose parents the Dems need to win in northern Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. No rings hanging from their noses, lips, or eyelids. No tattoos observable. Just five kids reciting the Pledge the way I did as a kid and still do today (also without tattoos or rings hanging from my face, by the way). Dozens of Zoom-type squares of people — mostly young, but also adults and elder citizens — singing the Star Spangled Banner.
was a bizarre night of television 4 replies
It’s the most bizarre TV since “Tiger King.” The Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday night with all the glamour and excitement of a Zoom conference. The Home Shopping Network produces more dynamic programming and is far better at pushing product. Inexplicably, former “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria Bastón served as host. Wearing a white sleeveless sheath dress and a permanent expression of teary concern, Longoria Bastón repeatedly invoked the convention’s theme, “We the People.”
