Stephen Moore Why is the Left Always Afraid?
I think H L Mencken answered his question before any of us was born.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Continue reading “The Politics of Fear”
DOJ subpoenas Trump allies for being Trump allies
Now the Jan 6 probe has been expanded to intimidate anyone who donates significantly to Trump’s PAC. This is blatant political intimidation and violation of the 1st Amendment.
Tulsi Gabbard warns of the weaponization of bureaucracy
Gabbard is the only Democrat who speaks up against the dire changes Obama and Biden have made in our Republic. The IRS, DHS and DOJ are being used to grasp and hold power. This is not the country we grew up in, when Nixon tried a fraction of what Biden has made routine, he was an instant pariah. At least Nixon hired private goons to do his illegal searches.
And in addition, the EPA has brought back “Sue and Settle” to bypass its own rulemaking procedures, blocking even the handful of legally mandated oilfield lease sales.
And a complacent, partisan press looks the other way as the Rule of Law is shredded.
Examiner VA Dems tie us to CA Titanic
Magical thinking and virtue signaling are not a basis for energy policy.
California is a cautionary tale, not a guide to rational policy. VA Dems should be consigned to third party status for not seeing that.
WSJ Lance Morrow on Fascism in America
Mr Morrow doesn’t like Trump, or Biden, but he is spot on about fascism in America.
WSJ Freelink Energy Transition impossible
Who knew it takes as much energy to make a smart phone as a refrigerator?
Even viewed in the best light, green energy isn’t going to replace fossil fuels, nuclear is the only alternative and it’s going to take time.
The GOP is now the party of the working class, Democrats the paternal party of the bigotry of reduced expectations, where no one is held responsible for their own choices as long as they vote right and obey.
Libs of TikTok censored on Twitter for truth
The rational for Libs of TikTok is to hold a mirror to the extremists on the left.
But when they accurately reported on “gender affirming surgery” on minors, they were suspended.
Apparently repeating the actual words of the leftists is hate speech.
Earlier I said I would get one of the new Bivalent boosters as soon as they are available, however, further checking uncovered a caveat to that.
I still will get the booster, along with my flu shot, but I will wait until October. The reason is that I got my 2nd Wild Type booster in May, and the immunologists now recommend waiting 5 to 6 months between boosters. Not because of any danger but because if you take it too soon, your immune system will destroy the new antigens before they are taken up to re-program your B lymphocytes and the booster will not work as well.
So, consider the timing before getting the new booster, even though it will be available next week.
