Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the decision of Americans to leave high-tax blue states like New York, California, and Illinois and move to free states like Idaho, Utah, Texas, and Florida. But they do have one request for these new arrivals! They also cringe as the evidence seems to pile up that Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine early next year. And they discuss President Biden’s bewildering response to a question about whether his administration was unprepared for the Omicron variant.

Always Winter, Never Christmas in Covidland

 

Our house is decorated, the Christmas tree is up, and all the presents have been bought. Well, almost all; I’m sure we’ll find some last-minute must-haves. Our holiday season is normal, outside of inflated prices and a deflated Santa that blew into our yard last night.

But New York City, Washington DC, and other blue cities are observing Covidmas again this year. The dreary winter weather matches their residents’ dreary mood. “Fifteen days to slow the spread” has dragged to 21 months with no end in sight. Politicians shame the unvaccinated, teachers’ unions threaten more school closures, and progressives tut-tut Christmas revelers.

January 20, 2032 Welcome to the Queendom of Waregorniaii. We are the biggest Parliamentary Monarchy in the world. Good King Harry Windsor has now been crowned, and Queen Meghan has never been happier. Our capital city, Anaheim, is even more joyful than before. The new Royal Palace, formerly Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, looked as magnificent as […]

Taking Back Academia Begins with the States

 

Academia is broken and needs reform. Much of higher education is thoroughly corrupted by ideology and groupthink, including the STEM Departments, and instead of educated, well-rounded national and global citizens and scholars, are churning out mindlessly chanting, self-righteous, totalitarian, and censorious ignoramuses.

Clearly, just waiting for employment and taxation {chortle} to rectify so many years of maleducation and indoctrination is not a solution. Therefore, more active measures are needed.

Kristin Tate, Author of The Liberal Invasion of Red State America, joins Carol Roth to talk about why domestic migration is an urgent issue that is being ignored and why the “purpling” of America threatens the future prosperity of major states like Texas and could disrupt the balance of power in our electorate. Plus, a “Now You Know” piece on NewHampshire’s role in declaring independence from Great Britain.

Kristin is also a columnist at The Hill and a Novak Journalism Fellow at the Fund for American Studies.

Important, Timely (nod to Speaker Pelosi) Questions

 

It’s “time,” as Speaker Pelosi might prayerfully suggest, to get answers to these perplexing questions.

On Joe Biden and the impeachment:

Question 1: How, in an extended Senate impeachment trial, will continued daylight directed at the various Biden family entrepreneurial activities help ol’ Joe politically?

There are a number of books out there about visiting the 50 states. (Though you should begin with the book my wife and I just released, Cheers and Amen: A Year Long, 50 State Adventure.) We’ve read a number of them, but today I thought I’d share about one that came out in 2010 that kind […]

OK so once again we are libsplained-to that conservatives are “uneducated.” What this writer is predicting is either wrong as pointed out by one comment, or dire for the country. Because if all the new Trump-generated (desireabe type) economic growth is going to the already-liberal areas, and most future Americans are going to be enfolded […]

David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud former NPR CEO Ken Stern for taking the time to meet voters in red states and realizing they are nothing like the caricature offered by the mainstream media.  They’re also exasperated as President Trump and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker resume their public feud and accomplish nothing other than choke momentum for tax reform and tax cuts.  And they react with disgust to a University of Illinois professor who argues that proficiency in algebra and geometry perpetuates unearned white privilege and that “mathematics itself operates as Whiteness.”
