Ocasio-Cortez Is a Pain in Pelosi’s Agenda

 

Nancy Pelosi should be happier than she seems. The Democrats recently harvested enough votes to retake the House of Representatives, and she will again be elected Speaker of that body in January. But a lot has changed since 2011, when she last held the gavel. She isn’t accustomed to being ambushed on live television by the […]

Of Course Trump Will Be Impeached

 

Since Robert Mueller and his revanchist inquisitors filed their sentencing memoranda on the President’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, the Democrats and their friends in the legacy media have been squealing with undisguised glee. They clearly believe that it marks the beginning of the end for an “illegitimate” presidency. Never mind that the filings contain no […]

Democrats Are Just Too Darned Smart

 

At the dawn of the information age, when dumb terminals began appearing on desks and the din of dot matrix printers deafened all and sundry, every enterprise of consequence employed a misanthrope charged with the care and feeding of these machines. Occasionally, this reclusive individual reluctantly submitted to questions about the output of the equipment. […]

Calling O’Rourke

 

One of the more mystifying outcomes of the recent midterms, particularly as the nation reflects on the full life and multifarious accomplishments of George H.W. Bush, has been the elevation of Robert Francis O’Rourke to the top tier of potential presidential contenders. In response to a recent Morning Consult poll, registered Democrats ranked the losing […]

Alaska Dems ‘Discover’ a Crucial Uncounted Ballot

 

The ever vigilant Democrat vote counters of Alaska have made the most important discovery since gold was found near Nome in 1899. The balance of power in the state legislature has come down to the race in House District 1, where Republican Bart LeBon and Democrat Kathryn Dodge are officially tied with 2,661 votes each. […]

Mississippi Rejects Democrat Race-Baiting

 

Tuesday, having witnessed the Democrats and the “news” media bombard Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith with baseless charges of racism, the voters of Mississippi ignored the smear tactics and elected her to the U.S. Senate. Hyde-Smith is the first woman from the Magnolia State to be elected to either house of Congress. She is a former member […]

Cindy Hyde-Smith and the Media Lynch Mob

 

Every election cycle the legacy media accuse any and all southern Republicans of reviving Jim Crow, while studiously ignoring the inconvenient fact that it was the Democrats who presided over the era of racial segregation. During the recent midterms, for example, they dubbed Illinois native Rick Scott, “Florida’s Jim Crow governor.” In Georgia, they claimed without evidence […]

Defining the Blue Wave Down

 

For well over a year before the midterms, the Democrats and the media predicted that a blue wave of righteous indignation would bring the sinners of the GOP low on November 6. The Republicans would be humbled in Congress, state legislatures, and governor’s mansions all across the land. And, despite the historical revisionism that is […]

Democrat Losers: Undignified and Dangerous

 

What do Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, and Bill Nelson have in common? Each asked the voters for important positions of leadership and promptly proved themselves unworthy of those offices when the answer was “No.” It isn’t necessary, of course, to revisit Gore’s reluctant acceptance of reality or Clinton’s querulous hypocrisy. The tawdry details […]

Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

 

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules […]
