Return of the ‘Law and Order’ Issue

According to Gallup, on the issue of crime, President Joe Biden is 18 points underwater. While 57% of Americans disapprove of how he is handling crime, only 39% approve.
Biden’s dismal rating was recorded before the verdict came in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial — not guilty on all five counts — a verdict Biden declared had made him “angry.”
Biden’s rating also came before career criminal Darrell Brooks, free on $1,000 bail after running over his girlfriend, drove his Ford Escape into the Waukesha Christmas parade, killing six and injuring 60.

Joe Biden’s Dirty Little Secret: He Wants Higher Gasoline Prices

When he announced last week that he would release more oil from the American Strategic Petroleum Reserve, President Joe Biden told the American people he is doing everything possible to bring down gas prices at the pump.
That’s a lie. This administration and the climate change crazies have declared war on American energy.
They want high oil and gas prices. The Biden master plan is for American oil and gas production and consumption to go to zero over the next 15 to 20 years.

Trump Fights Fannie/Freddie Battle From Outside the WH

One battle born of the 2008 financial crisis – the federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – is still being fought by the mortgage giants’ private shareholders. Former President Donald Trump waded into the fray this month, making the case that if the law establishing the agency governing Fannie and Freddie had been constitutionally crafted, he would have been able to privatize them. He claims his policies for the mortgage entities should be honored now because they had been thwarted improperly during his tenure in the White House.

New Variant, Familiar Response From Biden

In front of the camera, Anthony Fauci was calm and cautious, despite reports coming out of South Africa that a new variant of the coronavirus had been discovered, a strain that the World Health Organization designated “a variant of concern” and would later dub “omicron.”
There wasn’t evidence that omicron was in the United States just yet, President Biden’s chief medical adviser told CNN’s Brianna Keilar early Friday morning. Sure, Fauci admitted, the reports were “a red flag that this might be an issue.

We Don’t Get a Vote on the Woke Revolution

You don’t get to vote on the revolution. That’s kind of the point. From the happy example of Colonial America to the terrors that mutilated and murdered innocents in France, Russia, and China, revolutionaries work outside the established system to impose a new order.
So it is with today’s woke revolution. The potent cultural forces that have mainstreamed radical concepts such as “white privilege,” “microaggressions,” and “gender fluidity” are beyond the reach of American democracy.

Second-Guessing; Blowup Brewing? Nov. 22, 1963

Good morning, it’s Monday, Nov. 22, 2021. For baby boomers and their parents, today’s date is etched painfully in the national consciousness. This is less true today, finally, but it is a testament to John F. Kennedy enduring legacy that it’s taken nearly six decades for the sadness to wane.
In part this was because of JFK’s extraordinary appeal. It was also due to the shocking assassination of his brother Robert F. Kennedy five years later.

The Democratic Party Is Poised to Blow Up Soon

President Biden was going to return the United States to a state of normalcy after the disruption, and destruction, of former President Trump. For Democrats, he was to be a bridge to the party’s future – the wise elder who would provide stability and then pass the torch to the next generation of leaders.
