Is Ron DeSantis Slipping into the Swamp?


Debates will continue about whether Gov. Ron DeSantis should run for the Presidency in 2024 or whether people should support President Trump.

But there’s one argument that I think is illegitimate and there are many reasons for pushing back on them: Ron DeSantis is not going to be swallowed by the swamp.

‘An Orgy of Psychodrama’


January 5, 2022, was the day my respect for lefty journalist Glenn Greenwald surpassed my respect for former Vice President Dick Cheney. He did so by authoring an absolutely spot-on, painfully honest assessment of the spectacle the Democrats staged.

How could the disciples, or anyone else, roll a heavy stone away from the opening to the tomb without waking everyone up? And why would they do this, given that stealing a body was considered a downright sacrilegious offense and punishable by death in those days? Not to mention the punishment that awaited soldiers who conked out while on duty?
