Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Biden Conspiracy

 

Let us begin with the now-common conclusion that US presidential candidate Joe Biden is, to one degree or another, senile; and thus physically incapable of acting as President of the United States of America, the most powerful and influential office on the planet.

It has come to my attention that some Republican voters believe the worst possible outcome of this fraud would be for the Democratic candidate for Vice President to immediately take Biden’s place after his election to President. If only that were so. In that case, most voters would know who they were truly voting for or against: the VP candidate versus Donald Trump.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Truth and Lies About Ukraine

 

Ukraine in context mapWe were repeatedly treated to lies about Ukraine during the first week of the Democrats’ congressional clown show “impeachment inquiry.” The central lie was that Ukraine was a key security partner against Russia for many years. It is a lie that Ukraine has ever been a key security partner and it is a further lie that Ukraine has been the focus of US policy intended to check Russian re-expansion. Everyone knows this, you know this, at least in your gut. Here are the facts, which do not care about anyone’s feelings:

1991: Ukraine votes for and declares independence from the Union of Soviet Socialist States. Ukraine has over 1,000 nuclear warheads, allegedly without the control and arming codes, but with significant technical knowledge in-house. Weeks before the independence vote, President George H.W. Bush delivers an infamous speech in Kiev, written by Russia and Eastern Europe expert Condoleezza Rice, in which he warned about “suicidal nationalism.” William Safire branded this the “Chicken Kiev speech.” Bush feared that small states declaring their independence would provoke the Russian population, destabilizing the supposedly democratizing new Russia.

The woke-folk of California don’t want The Wall, don’t need The Wall, can’t handle The Wall. Tear it down and move it to a new location. Perhaps the other border states want it: Texas, New Mexico or Arizona. And if the Governor of California wants to give all-comers free medical care and sanctuary, don’t impede the […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Who’s Running This Country Anyway?

 

Judging from the actions (or lack thereof) of the Department of Justice and its stepchild, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, they think that they are running the country. And I see no one—not the President, not the Congress, getting in their way. Forget about the three co-equal branches of government; they don’t exist in that manner today.

I am appalled at the behavior and actions of Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein at the DOJ, for one. He appears to be the one in charge, since almost everything I’ve seen from AG Jeff Sessions indicates he is feckless and unengaged. And saying that about Sessions disturbs me greatly, since I thought he could make a difference when Trump selected him.

I have one question for the virtue-signaling leftists throughout America and the entire Western world who recently were beside themselves over President Trump’s alleged vulgar characterization of the country of Haiti: Can you make the case that Haiti is not a s___hole? Go ahead, let’s hear it. I didn’t think so. More

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. PTO Displays Trump Tombstone for Elementary School Fundraiser

 

A Gloucester, MA parent teacher organization held a fundraiser at their elementary school — and one of the members decided to make an ugly political statement. An unnamed parent at West Parish Elementary School brought a Halloween-themed bean bag game decorated with tombstones. The one in the center bore the name Don Trump.

One annoyed parent took a photo of the display and sent it to Massachusetts Republican Party committeewoman Amanda Orlando Kesterson, who shared it on Facebook.

California has decided to become a Sanctuary State, as reported in Rodin’s excellent post. California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown signed it into law and thumbed his nose at our President and at America’s laws. I then wrote an article describing how ICE has decided to step up their deportation arrests on the streets of California, […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America lay out the extent of the devastation in Southeast Texas but also salute the first responders and big-hearted citizens who are rescuing their neighbors. They also unload on Antifa, as the leftist mob attacks people in Berkeley and chants, “No Trump. No Wall. No USA at All.” And they discuss the likely circus car of endless 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls that will make the 17 GOP candidates in 2016 seems like a reasonable number.

now you enforce it! I don’t know who said it originally, and I know I mangled it, but the meaning is clear. Question—isn’t this ruling unconstitutional? If so, the President is within his rights to ignore it, or ‘nullify’ it, correct? I fear this situation is going to come to bloodshed. The question is, whose […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Press and the President’s Daughter

 

The general rule guiding the press and the offspring of a sitting President is hands-off unless the child has reached adulthood. Then everything is fair game, especially when it comes to that adult child’s chosen profession.

But the President is still a father, no? So, what happens when that fatherly instinct takes over? What happens when the President of the United States threatens a Washington Post columnist with physical harm?

In the first of this week’s podcasts, we discuss the question of why and whether Donald Trump will, in fact, divest himself of the Trump Organization and the fact that he is now in the position of picking and choosing which policies he can attempt to put into effect since his candidacy did not rest on policy prescriptions.

Also, why the liberal culture’s refusal to be magnanimous in its victory has led the Democratic party to its present parlous state. Give a listen.

President Reagan had James Baker, Ed Meese, and Michael Deaver. Baker was the Chief of Staff, Meese was the counselor to the President, and Deaver was the deputy Chief of Staff. It was Reagan’s Troika. Could Trump’s Troika be Preibus, Bannon, and Conway? Preibus takes on the Baker role, Bannon takes on the Meese role, […]

Now that the election is finally over, the tough job of paving the future of America has begun. But how much of president-elect Trump’s stated goals are mere lip-service to his base, and how much could become actual policy? Hosts John Hart and Ellen Carmichael weigh in on the obstacles the new administration will have to hurdle, and what it means for the national Conservative movement going forward.
