Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America grab some popcorn as supporters of Sen. Cory Booker blast the media for giving far more attention to Pete Buttigieg, calling the coverage gap the epitome of privilege. They also slam Code Pink for commandeering the Venezuelan embassy in Washington in solidarity with dictator […]
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the USA Today editorial writers for pointing out Medicare for All would rip more than 100 million Americans away from coverage they like and run up a cost that even government economists can’t figure out. They also slam Cory Booker for demanding a […]
Keep yucking it up. Talk about Alexandria Occasional Cortex. Hey, it could never happen here right? Not so fast, slick, your laughter is actually based in ignorance or forgetfulness. Stalin engineered a terror famine, the Holodomor, and Mao killed off up to 60 million inconvenient people with his Great Leap Forward. Today, Venezuelans are eating rats. Now are you focused?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist scheme reveals, in its own words, the red origins and aims of the Green movement. Instead of greedy capitalists oppressing wage slaves, evil polluters are killing everyone. those at the top of the intersectional virtue pyramid hit hardest.More
An end to industrial civilization, but like in a totally pro-union way.
If this week’s Green New Deal boomlet was politically significant, it wasn’t just because a legislative newcomer elected by 110,318 voters in Queens and the Bronx proposed a government program to renovate or replace every building in the country within ten years, abolish internal-combustion-engine cars and commercial air travel, shut down all conventional utility generation without building nuclear, phase out flatulent cows, support persons “unwilling” to work, print new paper money to pay for it all, and on and on. New York City voters have elected radical mavericks to Congress before and will do so again.More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of Missouri Rep. Billy Long drowning out a protester during a House committee hearing by drawing upon his old auctioneering skills. They also scratch their heads as an anonymous administration official writes an op-ed in the New York Times to […]
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleasantly stunned to see the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals uphold the right to carry a firearm in public. They also roll their eyes as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker suggests supporting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh makes one “complicit in evil.” And […]
Given how 2017 went, it was only to be expected that 2018 would get even more unhinged. It seems in the Age of Trump, the ends justify the means, and so, we’re seeing a lot of liberals engage in fat shaming, ageism, and mansplaining in order to buttress “The Resistance.”
Yesterday the President’s doctor gave a news conference on the state of the President’s health. It was one of the most detailed and lengthy in the Trump White House’s history, and despite the fact that the doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, was Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama’s as well, many are questioning everything from his findings about the President’s heart health, mental state, and weight. On the latter, the President quickly became the butt of jokes from those who questioned if the President is indeed 239 pounds. The ladies of the View, many of whom are fat-shamed regularly, devoted an entire segment to the “girther movement.”More
Andrew Klavan on the blunt force trauma that is Trump’s honesty. Enter President Donald Trump. He is a rude and crude person. He speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site. And because he does not have good manners, he thoughtlessly breaks the rules with which the Left has sought to muzzle […]
Chris Christie will not doubt receive a bump after dismantling Rubio during the ABC GOP Debate. That forces Republicans into reevaluating the viability of Christie in 2016, just we did for a short while with Newt Gingrich in 2012. More
