As readers of this blog know, by February 2nd, I had concluded that last month’s “attack” on Empire actor Jussie Smollett was a hoax.

He is also expected to expropriate as much as $8 billion for the wall by declaring a “national emergency” – which, we all know, Democrats are sure to challenge on legal grounds. Powerlineblog.com’s Paul Mirengoff calls the bill “a...

BARRIERLESS BETO

Let me start by pointing out that the only reason I am blogging about Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke – an inconsequential former congressperson from Texas with no discernible presidential qualifications – is that media have spent the last year-plus, very successfully elevating him to left wing superstardom.  So, now, we have to pretend he has some level of...

ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR

William Barr is the new Attorney General of the United States. He passed through the senate with a 54-45 vote, almost entirely on party lines. Acting AG Matthew Whitaker, who, for absolutely no good reason, was treated like so much outhouse waste by Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee this week (a disgrace, covered matter-of-factly by the same media which would have given it major-story...

HOW DARE YOU VOTE ON THE BILL I’M CO-SPONSORING

It’s hard to tell whether this is more comical or more pathetic. The so-called “New Green Deal” -a loony mishmosh of pipe dreams and fantasies that reads like it is a creative writing project from Mars – is being co-sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA).  But it has received the endorsement of over70 house Democrats and a dozen or...
