The COVID Debacle Should End All Calls For Government-Run Healthcare

Written by Peter Heck

Liberal commentator Bari Weiss made headlines last weekend by prosecuting the actions of U.S. public health entities and government for their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, suggesting that future generations will consider them to have committed a “moral crime.”

Her words may have inflamed the Fauci-fanatics in American society, but coming on the heels of the CDC’s stunning admission that natural immunity was six times more effective during the Delta variant wave – despite the fact that public health officials shamed those who were suggesting as much at the time – there are more citizens than ever who are now choosing COVID realism over alarmism.… Continue Reading

‘Great Unifier’ Biden Tells Half The Country To Go To Hell

Written by Robert Knight

President Biden went down to Georgia on Tuesday, following a trail blazed by the devil.

Bemoaning Georgia’s new election law, which is less strict than that of Mr. Biden’s Delaware or Elizabeth Warren’s Massachusetts, Mr. Biden played a tune hatched in hell, the kind of stuff that stokes a civil war, not healing.

Mr. Biden, who earlier called “white nationalists” the greatest security threat facing America, went full demagogue at an Atlanta college: “I will defend your right to vote and our democracy against all enemies foreign and, yes, domestic.”… Continue Reading

Biden’s Recent Judicial Nominees Create More Concern About Their Capacity to Serve Impartially

Written by Jorge Gomez

President Biden closed out his first year in office with 40 judges placed on the federal bench, a record number of confirmations not seen since Reagan.

As the New Year starts, it doesn’t appear Biden’s push to “restore balance” to the judiciary is slowing down.

Recently, the President announced his 12th round of federal judicial nominees, a wave that included candidates for two important appellate court vacancies on the Eleventh Circuit and the D.C.… Continue Reading

Chasing Our Own Tails Has Become The New Pandemic

Written by Daniel Horowitz

As for those of you who are left, I will make their hearts so fearful in the lands of their enemies
that the sound of a windblown leaf will put them to flight. They will run as though fleeing from the sword,
and they will fall, even though no one is pursuing them
. ~ Leviticus 26:36

The hospitals throughout America are stressed and stretched thin. No, unlike during other times of the pandemic, there is not a flood of people coming in with blood clotting and respiratory distress.… Continue Reading

Texas Audit Finds Over 11,000 Potential Noncitizens Registered to Vote, Other Problems

Written by Darlene McCormick Sanchez

Voting irregularities—including potentially thousands of votes cast by noncitizens and dead people—were reported during the first phase of the Texas secretary of state’s forensic audit of the 2020 general election, but critics deemed it more of a risk-limiting audit at this point.

The secretary of state’s office released its findings on Dec. 31; the issues found aren’t enough to significantly affect 2020 election results of the four counties involved in the audit—Collin, Dallas, Harris, and Tarrant counties—which account for about 10 million people, or a third of Texas’s population.… Continue Reading

New Justice Department Report: Prison Rates Plummeting, Lowest Level Since 1992

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Why is there a record number of criminals on the streets? Well, if they are being removed from the prisons, where else do you think they will land?

It’s not enough for Republicans to only focus on funding the police. What point is there in funding the police if prosecutors, judges, and new laws from the legislature will just let out all the repeat violent offenders? A new Bureau of Justice Statistics report easily sheds light on why there is so much rampant crime in the streets.… Continue Reading

A Primer on the Vaccine Mandate: A Case of Federal Overreach

Written by Dr. John A. Sparks

Whether you have strong convictions against vaccines, or just about the COVID vaccine, or you have no particular aversion to vaccines, understanding what is going on with President Joe Biden’s OSHA-enforced vaccine mandate is important. The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) mandate is just one leg of a three-legged stool—the others being the vaccine edict from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services directed at medical workers and the administration’s own vaccine directive aimed at the employees of certain federal contractors.… Continue Reading

Your Costs For Biden’s Bloated Bureaucracy

Written by Oliver North and David Goetsch

“Drain the swamp!” Those three words were more than a mantra for the Trump administration. They were shorthand for reducing the number of nameless, faceless bureaucrats who control the lives of Americans by enforcing a plethora of government regulations without ever standing for election. Now, with Joe Biden in the White House, the swamp is again overflowing.

OpentheBooks.com recently published the latest appalling figures on the federal government’s “internal” spending.… Continue Reading

Critical Race Theory: Myths, Marxism, and More

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

Few modern topics have become as divisive as critical race theory, which is no surprise, given that CRT divides. It divides people into groups pitted against one another, into categories of oppressed vs. oppressor. What’s worse, your group defines you. This certainly flies in the face of the Judeo-Christian conception of all individuals as children of God made in the image of God.

What’s making CRT even worse are misunderstandings and misconceptions on both sides, from the left and the right.… Continue Reading
