NowhereCare

Even people who get their information only from major network news know that, in their mad rush to promise free health care, Democratic presidential hopefuls would raise taxes for nearly everybody including the “hard-working middle class.” How do they know? Because at least one of the eager promisers won’t give

Mrs. Clinton’s Fevered Nightmare

Hillary Clinton’s recent statements linking Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to the Russians — Mrs. Clinton’s current favorite enemy — provided Rep. Gabbard with an opportunity for a return volley, dubbing Mrs. Clinton “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party

MediocreCare — Guaranteed!

When Senator Bernie Sanders demands that the government “guarantee health care to all people as a right, not a privilege,” does anyone think about how governments currently provide more basic services as rights?  You have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in America — or so

The Democrats’ Wrong Number

“Where’s Hunter?” Donald Trump asks in front of his pro-Trump rallies (and of course on Twitter), referring to Joe Biden’s son and his cushy Ukrainian sinecure.  From the beginning of the Phone Call quasi-scandal, the upshot sure seemed to portend disaster for the Democrats, in general, and Biden’s presidential bid

Don’t Tempt Her

Scrolling down @realDonaldTrump’s prolific Twitter feed, I cannot help but wonder: when does the president find time to do his job? I am not the only one to wonder. Still, as President, Trump sure is a great . . . troll. “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the

The 79¢ Lie

Sen. Kamala Harris successfully bears aloft the banner of Barack Obama. As “a person of color”? Yeah, sure — but mainly by pandering to ignorant ideologues. “Look, women are still not paid equal for equal work in America,” she said recently at a campaign stop. The Daily Wire notes that

Deep State, Deeply Fake

Is there a good, presumptive reason to believe what the government tells us? Not when it comes from the “intelligence” agencies. One of the more breathtaking developments of recent years has been the transformation of Democratic Party politicians and activists from skeptics of alphabet soup intelligence agencies — CIA, NSA,

Are You a Conspiracy Theorist?

Politicians are all over the vaping issue, like packrats on pet food. The House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, C-SPAN explains, held a hearing on the relationship between e-cigarettes and an outbreak in lung disease. Government experts spoke. There was only one empaneled pro-vaping witness, Vicki Porter,

E-Panic

One of the better arguments for government relies upon sobriety: we want rational, measured responses to threats, not panicky, hot-headed reactions. We have a rule of law to prevent revenge and vendetta, replacing them with justice and civil order. But when we expand the concept of “threat” far beyond interpersonal

Greta

Listen to the Warm

I like publicity stunts as much as the next activist. But haven’t we had enough of the whole Greta Thunberg bit yet? On Wednesday, the 16-year-old Swede provided testimony on an apt stage, let us grant her that — the U.S. House of Representatives’ foreign affairs subcommittee joint hearing on

Packing

“Are you proposing taking away their guns?”  “I am,” replied former Texas Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke to ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir’s question. If, anyway, “it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield.”  “Hell, yes,” he added, later in last week’s Democratic presidential

Biden Under the Bed

Former Vice-President Joe Biden was put on the spot, again, about race. During last Thursday’s presidential candidates’ debate, ABC newscaster Lindsey Davis asked what responsibility Americans should “take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?” Triple, Biden said, “the amount of money we spend. . . .” On
