DAN WOOTTON: Why did Boris go along with Joe Biden’s absurd mask play-acting instead of using his trip to America to declare that Britain (and the world) are open for business again?

How Biden’s Craven Politics Doomed His Vaccination Plan

When he was running for president in 2020, Joe Biden promised he had a plan to end the Covid-19 pandemic that had crippled the American economy and withered the mood of the nation. 
“I’m not going to shut down the country. I’m not going to shut down the economy. I’m going to shut down the virus,” Biden tweeted just days before election day in 2020. Of course, he had no plan at that time that was in any way different than President Trump’s plan.

A sociologist explains the truth about cancel culture

The topic of “cancel culture” has been discussed ad nauseam in the national media. As far as I see it, it goes something like this.
Conservatives believe that progressives are far too sensitive and censorious. According to conservatives, progressive thought police, armed with a notion that “words are violence,” patrol social media and bludgeon anyone who says something they deem out of bounds. They may cite attempts to cancel Harry Potter author JK Rowling for making comments that ran afoul of trans rights groups.

Biden Is to Blame for the Border Misery

In March of 2020, the Trump administration effectively closed the border, citing the Covid-19 pandemic in order to invoke Title 42, a little-used public health provision in the U.S. code. It quickly became clear that this was not, in fact, necessary to combat the pandemic—it was a pretext to enact the twisted white nationalist fantasies animating the president’s immigration policies.

The pro-life movement’s best chance at overturning Roe v. Wade heads to the Supreme Court

On Dec. 1, the pro-life movement’s best chance in nearly three decades of overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey will come before the Supreme Court. It is not at all clear what the court’s decision will be, but the case in question, Dobbs. v.
