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?

Biden’s Open Door Disaster

What is going on at our southern border? Are there any Americans who are okay with this? There is a flood of Haitian refugees. Thousands of them have not only come to the border and been let in past the border but are now being released throughout America. 
The Biden administration is putting out a big lie, “Oh, we’re sending them back.” No, they’re not. They’re sending some of the unaccompanied single males back. But if you show up with kids, you are a “family,” even if you’re not a real family.

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.
