It’s Time for Joe Biden to Exit the Ring

pexels rodnae productions 8612028

President Biden often looks like a punch-drunk old fighter sent into the ring once too often. At this point, the only thing lower than Biden’s approval numbers is his energy level. Is Uncle Joe too old to rebound? At this point, Biden is running on little more than fumes and righteousness. In his televised antigun speech Thursday night, Biden proclaimed that he expected most people “to turn your outrage into making this issue [assault weapons] central to your vote.” Biden’s histrionic spiel was far more likely to turbo-charge gun owners than gun banners and could be another coffin nail...

How to Beat Inflation? End the Fed

President Joe Biden has unveiled a three-part plan to fight inflation—or at least make people think he is fighting inflation. One part of the plan involves having government agencies “fix” the supply chain problems that have led to shortages of numerous products. Of course, any attempt by the government to solve the supply chain problems (which were caused by prior government interventions such as shutting down the economy for over a year) will not just fail to solve the supply shortages but will create new problems. Deficit reduction is another part of Biden’s anti-inflation plan....

The Problem With ‘What is a Woman?’

"Biological sex [is] binary. It's been binary for like a hundred million years, longer than that. Temperament is not binary, temperament or personality… people who talk about the diversity in gender are actually talking about diversity in personality and temperament…" – Jordan B. Peterson, What Is a Woman? (The Daily Wire, 2022) Why is it that the most powerful people on earth have been so fond of promoting “equality”? President Joe Biden, for example, has the ability to issue executive orders which hundreds of millions of people are legally bound to obey. Could anything be less “equal”...

Exposed: The Lies of Biden’s Tax Policy

As President Joe Biden’s tax policy discussions start heating up, some familiar lies have made their way back into the political parlance. There are four specific lies upon which I’ll focus here: The rich need to pay their “fair share” The Trump tax cuts only went to the wealthiest Americans Nobody making less than $400k will see their taxes increase under the Biden plan The wealthy pay less taxes than their secretaries Progressives generally classify the “rich” as the top 1%, those evil “millionaires and billionaires," as Senator Bernie Sanders used to say (until he became a millionaire;...
