For half a decade now, America's media elite have been obsessed with former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party's conversion to Trumpism. Press and TV are daily consumed with his actions and prospects and the future of the party he captured in 2016. Perhaps it is time to consider the prospects of President Joe... Read More
Earlier: Biden Rush: Arrests By Border Patrol "Soared To The Highest Levels Ever Recorded" Congress sent a depressing message to Americans last week: Ukraine matters more than you. The House sped through a bill to give $40 billion to the war-torn state. Only 57 Republicans voted against the bill; not a single Democrat opposed it.... Read More
A friend and I were at a bar when someone opined that France didn't resist the German invasion in 1940. "It's true, France lost fast," my friend replied. "But they fought hard. They lost 90,000 troops in six weeks. It was a bloodbath. We lost 58,000 over a decade in Vietnam but we're still whining... Read More
"Sometimes nothing is a real cool hand." In the movie classic "Cool Hand Luke," the convict Luke, played by Paul Newman, explains that to his fellow inmates after winning the pot in a hand of poker without even a pair of deuces. President Joe Biden should take notice. For, right now, "nothing" is the hand... Read More
An Intellectual and Political History
Just over a decade ago, minimum wage laws had largely vanished from the American political debate. Although they still remained on the books, they had fallen sharply in real terms, with the federal figure of $7.25 per hour being roughly one-third lower than at its 1968 peak. Relative to the overall productivity of the American... Read More
Like a lepidopteran Charlie Brown drawn to Lucy van Pelt's flaming football, congressional progressives keep falling for corporate Democrats' pathetically predictable, and transparently self-serving, pleas for unity. Support our priorities, the centrists keep urging, and we'll get around to your stuff later. How much later? We'll tell you later. "Progressives have grown increasingly accustomed to... Read More
Franklin D. Roosevelt, scion of one of the wealthiest families in American history, was worth about $67 million in today's dollars. He attended the prestigious Groton boarding school, Harvard College and Columbia Law. He was relatable to the masses despite his privileged background. In the words of a PBS documentary, he was "a patrician who... Read More
"Bad" Vlad Putin only "took over" part of Ukraine because of President Biden's weakness. So says many in the US right wing. A "real man" president would have imposed costs so prohibitive that Putin would never have dreamed of recognizing what has been de facto reality since 2014: that the Russian-speaking part of Ukraine wants...

Not so long ago, Democrats seemed the party of the future. "Inevitable!" predicted some pundits, for demography is destiny. Moreover, in 2020, Democrats, who had won the popular vote six times in seven presidential elections, swept the popular vote again, by 6 million ballots. And they captured both houses of Congress. The future did seem... Read More
Most pundits we see on Fox News or Newsmax these days, or whom we read in the conservative “blogosphere” are confidently predicting huge Republican gains in the November 2022 congressional elections. Based on various national and state polls showing the marked unfavorability of Biden and the Democratic Party, they exude a confidence in this outcome... Read More
For decades, the Democrats have been the party of nonwhites but with a mostly white leadership. That is starting to change, as more white centrists have to fend off challenges from progressive blacks, Hispanics, and even Muslims. Last week, I gave four examples of this in the upcoming midterms. Here are two more. John Yarmuth,... Read More
"What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people." What did John Adams mean when he wrote this to Thomas Jefferson in 1815, after both had served as president? Adams... Read More
Yesterday, The Hill published an article called “Five Democrats the left plans to target” about progressives who are trying to unseat moderate Congressional incumbents. Though not inaccurate, the piece fails to mention how important race is in all this. The first quote in the article comes from South Asian Waleed Shahid, who worked for Alexandria... Read More
Before he appeared at his first solo news conference of 2022, President Joe Biden knew he had a communications problem he had to deal with. Namely, how to get off the defensive. How to avoid spending his time with the White House press corps defending his decisions and explaining his actions as allegations of failure,... Read More
If the left believed that draping the Capitol riot of Jan. 6, 2021, around the neck of former President Donald Trump and the party that refused to repudiate him would sink the GOP, it appears to have miscalculated. For, as the left painted the Capitol riot as an "armed insurrection," "domestic terrorism," "attempted coup," and... Read More
The “investigation” of Rep. Henry Cuellar will help his challenger smear him. The Democrat Party has made it clear that they intend to flood the country with illegal aliens and to give them the vote. New York City already has. The Democrat Party has declared war on the white American majority. Every white idiot who... Read More
"We know where they are," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said in March 2003 about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. "They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat." We found nothing. Rumsfeld knew nothing. A year after the invasion, most voters believed the Bush administration had lied America... Read More
"The next few days ... will mark a turning point in this nation's history," said President Joe Biden in his Atlanta speech to reframe the debate in Congress on voting rights legislation and the filibuster. He went on: "Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadows, justice over injustice? ... I know where I... Read More
"Every Day Is Jan. 6 Now." That was the headline over the editorial of 1,000 words in The New York Times of Sunday last. On first read, I thought the Times was conceding its obsession and describing its mission. For the editorial began by bewailing yet anew the "horrifying" event, "the very real bloodshed of...

Glenn Greenwald Offers his Perspective on the Democrats’ “Trump Insurrection” Histrionics. Greenwald is on the money, but the situation for American is even more serious than he thinks. Here is Greenwald’s explanation of the counterfactual reality created for us by Democrats: “The orgy of psychodrama today [Jan 6, 2022] was so much worse and more... Read More
The anniversary of January 6 is upon us. In deranged Democrat nomenclature, “It was an insurrection”—apparently the deadliest in U.S. history. To their disgrace, Jan. 6 has indeed become the Democrat’s 9/11. Deplorables should rejoice for the Democrats are having a fit, and that’s fun. Rejoice, but do not partake in or dignify the production.... Read More
Student loans, long a nonissue that ruined countless lives, have finally become a political flashpoint in the conflict between progressive and moderate Democrats. Yielding to lefties' pressure after Sen. Joe Manchin torpedoed Build Back Better, President Joe Biden has extended former President Donald Trump's pandemic relief to 43 million federal borrowers by pausing payments another... Read More

Woke Democrats are establishing “Social Justice” despotism
The Democrats have held the presidency and a majority of both houses of Congress for only eleven months, but they have already put their stamp on the transformation of the United States from top to bottom. In reaction to those cascading accusations of “domestic terrorism,” many Americans are beginning to believe that the country is... Read More
As President Joe Biden's poll numbers sank this fall, and the presidentially ambitious in his party began to stir, the White House put out the word. Forget all that 2020 campaign chatter about Biden being a "transitional president." He intends to run and win a second term. Well, perhaps. Yet, skepticism abounds. First, if Biden... Read More
All of these news articles about Brandon’s bad poll numbers are actually pro-Brandon articles designed to inflate the real numbers. The real numbers of support for the man who amazingly won the 2020 election with more votes than anyone ever in the history of the human species are now almost certainly in the single digits.... Read More
Since Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia gubernatorial election last month, Conservatism, Inc. has been making the rounds with the usual brag that the GOP sweep was a big win for diversity. Of course, they showcased the victory of Winsome Sears, a Jamaican immigrant, for lieutenant governor, and Jason Miyares, the son of Cuban exiles,... Read More
Gainesville, Florida – The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services “Innovation Center” recently announced that by 2030, they will move all traditional Medicare enrollees into a “care relationship” with a 3rd party private, for profit middleman, labeled a “Direct Contracting Entity (DCE) without seniors’ knowledge or consent, and without Congressional oversight. Every enrollee in traditional... Read More
Democrats need to stop playing cute about the president's reelection plans. Asked in March whether he's going to run in 2024, President Joe Biden's answer was, shall we say, less than unqualified: "The answer is yes. My plan is to run for reelection. That's my expectation." He added: "I'm a great respecter of fate. I've... Read More

Exploiting friction within the Democrat’s coalition of the fringes is the most effective action the GOP/GAP can take for the sake of its electoral future. The easiest way to do so: by branding the Democratic Party as the Black Party, as I explained last month. Realpolitik is not the strong suit of Republican leaders, who... Read More
Not so long ago, President Joe Biden was being talked of as a transformative president, a second Franklin D. Roosevelt in terms of the domestic agenda he would enact. And there was substance to the claim. Early in his presidency, Biden had passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package. While his majorities in both houses of... Read More

Earlier, by Steve Sailer: Sailer Strategy Supplement: Rebrand Democrats As The Black Party Growing up in a non-white neighborhood offers one a startling perspective about the multicultural inferno that awaits America in the years to come. But watching petty crime and highly-organized ethnic gangs taught me two things. One, whites—the Historic American Nation—need not endure... Read More
"At a certain point, we have to trust one another," Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vermont, said Nov. 5 as he left a meeting of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Progressives had just acquiesced to President Joe Biden's pleas that left-leaning House members sign off on the $1 trillion infrastructure spending bill they'd been holding up in order... Read More
Interview by GEOFOR (Geopolitical Forecast Russia)
GEOFOR: If you look at the U.S. sociology, then for the 9 months of this year, the rating of President Biden declined by 11 points. Moreover, 57% of respondents do not support the President, who, in fact, has not yet passed the midpoint of his cadence, (49% of them are categorically opposed – «I don’t... Read More
The Democrats finance immigrant-invaders to cross the seas and provide them with food, water, and medical care so they can reach our border, then permit them to illegally cross into the US and pay them $450,000 each for doing so. This is expensive vote-buying, but it will meet the Democrats’ goal of getting rid of... Read More
arlingtonvirginiausa-july24th2021joebidenandterry
History has been rewritten almost daily this week, almost immediately as it occurs. A Wall Street Journal editorial on November 4 spun its view of what is at issue for the Democratic Party: “Voters warn Democrats to walk away from the Sanders-Pelosi agenda.” The Democrats’ own leadership quickly agreed with this take, playing the blame... Read More
Another election, another shellacking. Democrats are returning to the political reality that predated the quantum singularity of Biden's anti-Trump coalition: adrift, ideologically divided and, as always, arguing over whether to chase swing voters or work hard to energize their progressive left base. At the root of the Democrats' problem is rightward drift. The 50-yard line... Read More
"I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach." With this remark — arrogant, dismissive, contemptuous — in his debate with Glenn Youngkin, Terry McAuliffe committed a historic gaffe. From that debate forward, his poll numbers steadily sank until McAuliffe lost his lead, and with it, the election. And going down to... Read More
In the arcane mythos of Medieval Christianity, Gog and Magog were monstrous, demonic allies of Satan, striving with him to see mankind damned to perdition and eternal punishment in Hell. Religious mythology, from the Greeks on down, has been utilized to provide easily interpreted moral imperatives for the guidance of vulnerable, credulous humans. Gog and... Read More
Yesterday, I wrote that if the Democrats were remotely engaged with basic strategy, they would not do too much fraud in the Virginia governor’s race and allow the Republican to win. If Glenn Youngkin Doesn’t Win, It’s Obvious Fraud Again (Which is Why He Might Win) You can go back and look at my reasoning... Read More
America is the only country in history in which immigrant-invaders can walk into the country illegally, be detained, and collect $1 million per family for the trauma of being detained. Isn’t it great! Immigrant-invaders can bring lawsuits because they were stopped from illegally entering our country. Biden is using the orchestrated threat of immigrant-invader lawsuits... Read More
All’s fair in love, war, and politics. That said, there needs to be at least some plausibility if you’re going to try to smear the opposition. Republican Glenn Youngkin has pulled slightly ahead of Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor’s race. In desperation, Mr. McAuliffe, who was governor during the 2017 Unite the Right...

Everyone complains about the Left, but no one does anything about it. Or so it would seem. Part of the problem, I suspect, is that many in the public have mistaken notions about what “the Left” is and how it operates, and thus they more or less mindlessly support it, or oppose it, as the...

"We've got the president of the United States on our side," said Sen. Bernie Sanders Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "Got 96% of the members of the Democratic caucus in the House on our side. We got all but two senators at this point in the Democratic caucus on our side. We're going to win... Read More
The California recall election turned out well for the Democrats. With Gov. Gavin Newsom sinking in the summer polls, the party had been staring starkly at the prospect of losing the nation's largest state and seeing its governor replaced by talk-show host Larry Elder, who had vaulted into the lead among the 46 candidates seeking... Read More
President Joe Biden is taking heat from Democrats, not for his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan — that's popular — but for his haphazard pullout that, self-serving Rumsfeldian "stuff happens," "wars end messily" platitudes aside, could have been executed more efficiently. They blame George W. Bush for starting America's longest war, arguing that what he... Read More

The left is currently dividing very publicly over a viral clip on social media of AOC – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – arriving on Monday night at an exclusive gala event in New York in a slinky, white satin, off-the shoulder, Marilyn Monroe-style gown with large red writing across the back demanding: “Tax the Rich.” Maybe “divided”...

The Democrats in the latter half of the 20th and early 21st centuries transitioned from a reform party into America’s worst enemy. Essentially, the Democrats destroyed America. They replaced the white population with Third World “people of color” who have different values and different cultures. Assimilation was halted. To assimilate immigrants was declared to be... Read More
After a prolonged campaign supporting, colluding and rationalizing the carnage unleashed by race rioters in the summer of 2020, Democrats in Congress have suddenly tossed Black Lives Matter and Antifa into the garbage bin. In two separate late night votes, Democrats overwhelmingly supported pro-police amendments by Republican Senator Josh Hawley and Tommy Tuberville that will... Read More
Menstrual America has gained the upper hand. Feminized America has been on display in all her undignified inauthenticity, in the crybabies of Congress and in the loud and proud quitting at the 2020 Olympics. In Menstrual America, medals go to congressmen and cops who wail the loudest when recounting their professional failings on Jan. 6,... Read More
The police chief says it is pointless for police to catch criminals that the courts turn loose. “The justice system that we have right now is not functioning the way that it should.” Neither is the justice system functioning in New York, Chicago, Minnesota, Salem, San Francisco, Portland, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Michigan. The justice system never... Read More
