No, Joe Biden — the sky isn’t falling: Goodwin

If you’ve been taking the latest climate warnings from the White House seriously and literally, you believe the Earth is about to become either a ball of fire or an enormous ocean. 
I humbly suggest a more likely possibility: You are being blitzed by a government snow job. 
The claim that the end is near is the latest example of how the Biden administration is creating more problems for itself than it is solving. That the climate scare effort employs a whole-of-government approach doesn’t make it any more credible. 
Quite the contrary.

Moderate Democrats all but extinct: Goodwin

The Wall Street Journal wrote Tuesday that President Biden was making another attempt to salvage his stalled legislative agenda by meeting separately with progressive and moderate Democrats.  
The next sentence was more telling: The moderates were Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). The progressives were too numerous to mention.

White House not stolen, but bought with Zuckerberg’s money: Goodwin

Nearly a year has passed since the 2020 election, yet there has not been a clear, satisfactory answer to the central mystery: How did a dull, declining Joe Biden manage to get more than 81 million votes and win the presidency? 
After all, Biden spent most of the pandemic-laced campaign in his Delaware basement and his appearances were marked by sparse crowds and signs he had lost more than a step. Yet he flipped five states Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, including Georgia and Arizona, and racked up 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232.

So, where’s The Post’s Pulitzer for Hunter Biden exposé?: Goodwin

Years ago, journalists unhappy that their ideas drew no interest from their bosses were known to complain that “news is what happens to an editor’s wife.”
The view is outdated, but the fundamental point remains intact. News gathering is not science, and judgments about which stories get covered are driven by the interests, experiences and prejudices of the people in charge of media organizations.
Americans intuitively understand this as technology creates more options for them.

De Blasio’s final ‘gift’ to New York City is ruining its schools: Goodwin

New York has endured nearly eight years under its worst mayor ever, but Bill de Blasio aims to do even more damage on his way out the door. His plan to end all Gifted and Talented programs in the public schools represents another assault on merit and would further dumb down a system already drowning in mediocrity and failure. 
The mayor, thankfully term-limited on Jan. 1, wants to replace achievement with a politically correct concoction called Brilliant, which appears to be based on the notion that every child is a little bit Gifted and Talented.
