Has anyone on Ricochet heard anything further about the investigation into the person who leaked Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs?
How close are we to world war, post the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline? If that was done by Russia, was it not, in essence, an attack on NATO? Done in NATO territorial waters?
Why are world leaders so sanguine about the war in Ukraine? That war is obviously having global impact and is disastrous not just for Ukraine, but the world. There should have long since been a major international effort to force a halt to that war. Does that mean that world leaders actually favor the conflict? Why would they do that? Is Biden really OK with Putin annexing parts of Ukraine? It seems to me that that war puts the world back in a pre-medieval state, only with nukes. This time, Carthage won’t be salted, but radioactive.
Why isn’t the WEF, the Davos crowd, calling loudly for an end to the war? Do they favor it? Are all of our elites psychopaths?
If Joe Biden thinks immigration is such a wonderful thing for America (as it was in the 19th and early 20th Centuries before we had a welfare state), why does he not push for legislation to change our immigration laws to allow unlimited (but at least vetted) immigration from Latin America? After all, our restrictive immigration laws (initially passed in 1924 and signed into law by Calvin Coolidge–even Calvin Coolidge was a Progressive) were based on the depraved ideas of eugenics, the foremost agenda of Progressives, and were highly racist (as were Progressives then and Progressives now).
Of course, one reason the Democrats don’t bother with trying to change immigration law is a result of the fact that they stiffed Ronald Reagan, who agreed with amnesty based on a commitment to prevent further illegal immigration. Reagan was as much of a fool on that deal as Manchin was on Schumer’s promise to vote on easing permitting for energy projects. And the Democrats don’t seem to want to even try to change immigration law unless they get amnesty for everyone who has come here illegally. E.g, they want to be rewarded for bad behavior. Which won’t fly. So they won’t do anything without getting their way.
Has Liz Cheney destroyed the Bush (41 and 43) legacy by revealing the arrogant, not to mention irrational, elitism that underpinned it?
Is Joe Biden indeed trying to inflate away US debt? He seems to be really happy about the pain and suffering his inflationary policies are creating. Or is he just unaware? Or incapable of grasping what is going on?
Will Republicans again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the midterms?
Is the current surge of transgender treatment and surgery in children a mass psychosis that is sweeping the country? Like the accusations, with zero evidence, of bizarre abuse of children in daycare centers (the McMartins, Snowdens, Amiraults) of the 1990s? Or the Salem witch trials of the 1600s?
New litigation has been filed in the TWA 800 crash, with an allegation that the crash was due to a Navy missile erroneously striking the jetliner. Will the FBI/CIA coverup of that event be ultimately exposed?
Will Andy McCarthy ever wake up to the fact that the Biden FBI and Justice Department are not the entities for which he worked in the 1990s?
With the arrest of Mark Houck, Garland’s memo on investigation of parents objecting to school policies, the treatment of Jan. 6 demonstrators, and the focus on right-wing extremism by the DOJ and FBI, will Rich Lowry realize that we are all Cliven Bundy now?
Will Snowden be happy in Moscow?Published in
