In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Gillibrand: I Wouldn’t Detain Anybody at All

Yes, actually, let’s just release everybody into the country. And then have another amnesty in ten years. Also, let’s start advertising in Latin America: Come to the United States, tell a judge you’ll show up when you’re supposed to, and then forget about it. Well, I guess, not too much different than what we’ve got going on now. The race to the left on the

Video || Beto O’Rourke Forced to Do Self-Criticism

Man, it must be tough to be a white guy in the Democratic Party running for president. I’ve even seen Pete Buttigieg, who’s a white married gay man, accused of being “privileged.” Whatever you think of homosexuality or gay marriage, I don’t think it’s particularly easy being gay. Anyway, this below is painful to watch, as O’Rourke grovels after saying he was “born” to run

Socialism? Why Not? These 2020 Dems Already Have Mountains of Cash

According to the Washington Examiner: The 2020 Democratic field is running hard to the left as the Democratic Party celebrates socialism. But several of the candidates can well afford taking down capitalism at this point, because they’re already multimillionaires and have incomes in the top 1 percent.  Former Reps. Beto O’Rourke and John Delaney, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper are among

Soaring Democratic 2020 Candidate Pete Buttigieg’s Dad was a Marxist

Well, he wouldn’t be the first president raised by Marxists. Know what I mean? Pete Buttigieg presents himself as a “capitalist.” His policies, while not exactly Marxist, would be an assault on capitalism, like those of most members of the 2020 field. Meantime, Buttigieg has raised $7 million and was third in a recent Iowa poll. Buttigieg, who is gay and has a husband, also

Democrats Give Up on Impeachment

Looks like they’re stuck with President Trump until at least January 2021. According to the Washington Post, which reported the following, no doubt with great sadness: House Democrats conceded Monday that the possibility of impeachment proceedings against President Trump is over, at least for now — marking a dramatic retreat in the wake of the conclusion by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that Trump’s

Trump Can Now Ride the Mueller Report Straight to Reelection

From a piece I have running Monday on the NBC News website: The news that special counsel Robert Mueller found no proof that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia is much worse for Democrats than it appears. Because the vehicle for destroying President Donald Trump has crashed so spectacularly that Trump will reconstruct it into the campaign bus that will deliver him victoriously to the White House on his

Economic Models Point to Trump Landslide

Trump landslide? Huh? It could happen. The bottom line is that things are going well. And the current situation is not like that faced by George H.W. Bush in 1992, when people were ready for a change — President Trump will have only been in office for less than four years on Election Day. If anything, Trump’s outrages will matter less this time around. People

New Top Bernie Sanders Aide Applauded Venezuela’s Chavez

Many people don’t fully appreciate what’s going on here. Bernie looks sort of benign, like a cranky Jewish grandpa from Brooklyn. But what he is, is a hard-core socialist. Ironic that the media believe democracy is imperiled by Donald Trump while they think an extremist from the left who honeymooned in the Soviet Union will respect democratic norms. According to the Washington Examiner: A left-wing journalist

Beto O’Rourke Raises More Than $6 Million in 24 Hours

Well, he’s not qualified, he’s an overgrown child, and he strikes me as a phony. But he’s well on the way toward being nominated by the Democrats to run for president. According to the Washington Examiner: Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, got more bang for his buck after announcing his run for president than his 2020 Democratic rivals, raising more than $6 million online in the first

White House Believes it May Have a Chance with Jewish Voters

It’s possible. Getting the Jewish vote has been one of the Holy Grails for Republicans for years, but now that anti-Semitism has become so prominent within the Democratic Party, maybe my fellow Jews will rethink their allegiances. According to the Washington Examiner: After displays of alleged anti-Semitism by Democrats and deep divisions within the party over what to do about it, White House officials and their

Beto O’Rourke is Running for President

So I guess three terms in Congress and a few years on the El Paso city council qualifie one to be president. O’Rourke is officially the most annoying candidate in the Democratic field. And let’s face it, that’s a very high bar. Every time he opens his mouth, he is dripping with phoniness. As an editor, I’d definitely offer hardship pay to any reporter forced
