Image of the Day: Americans' Shrinking Earnings Under Joe Biden

Joe Biden tells Americans that he's helping them by building "from the bottom up and the middle out."  But the numbers don't lie, and the ugly reality is that he's only dragging us all toward the bottom.  Throughout his presidency, wage gains (green) have been consistently exceeded by inflation (blue), meaning loss in real earnings (red):

31 WikiLeaks Exposes Liberal Double Standard on Whistle Blowers

Ever since Daniel Ellsberg and his enablers at The New York Times published the Pentagon Papers, liberals have championed the right of so-called national security whistleblowers to be the final arbiters of what’s in the public interest.  Though deserving of zealous prosecutions for endangering American lives, saboteurs like Ellsberg and…

32 The Unbearable Lightness of Being Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder has a morally serious job.  He must; he heads the only cabinet department named after one of the four cardinal virtues. But in his execution of that office, Holder consistently shows a deficiency in the three other ingredients of classical moral probity: prudence, temperance and courage.   Prudence is serviceably…

33 Feds Unveil a “Friends & Funding” Program for American Islamist Mosque

Not content to let Americans indirectly fund Islamic terrorism through gasoline purchases and illegal drug buys, the U.S. Census Bureau and State Department are each engaged in activities that would land most citizens on a watch list: funding and befriending the most controversial mosque in the United States.  The mosque is called the Dar Al-…

34 The Facts About the Failed Times Square Bomber: Why the Liberal Establishment Can’t Face Reality

The more we learn about failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, the stranger the initial reporting about him becomes.  The liberals’ rush to downplay any possible connections to Islam and label him a “homegrown” terrorist were blatant attempts to freeze the story before the truth was known.  Now, the facts about Shahzad…

35 Bloomberg Joins All Who Just Say No to New York City Terrorist Trials

As presidential crises go, the opposition of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to a presidential decision would not normally rank high.  When that opposition is the Mayor’s abrupt about-face on trying confessed 9/11 terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court in New York, it could be the political equivalent of a detonator…

36 Terror and Honesty

From the second that Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano assured Americans that “the system worked” in the aftermath of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attempt to take down a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day, it was obvious that the national debate over terrorism was slipping down the rabbit hole to a world of talking…

37 National Security After the "Undie-Bomber"

One of the best reasons to oppose the expansion of government is that it often leads to overlapping responsibilities.  Duplicate enough of the work, and it becomes nearly impossible to figure out who’s in charge.  Maybe that’s why President Barack Obama announced that “the buck stops” with him after a would-be suicide…

38 Remembering Patriot Day

Not to stoke the fires for those of you lamenting being back in your office, but this should have been a three-day workweek.  On Monday, millions of Americans got the day off to commemorate Labor Day – a holiday whose inauspicious origins are rooted in organized labor’s mob violence and vandalism in turn-of-the-century Chicago.&…

39 Federalism Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

The Department of Homeland Security, never known for its institutional elegance (these are, after all, the people who brought us the color-coded terror alert system), reached a new low last week with the release of an Intelligence Assessment Report warning of the dangers of resurgent right-wing extremism in America. The report deservedly drew the…

40 Speaker Pelosi Loves William Jefferson More Than Homeland Security, Ethics and Maybe Even All Those Grandchildren

Last week, Washington's Culture of Corruption went from just plain disgusting to full-out scary. Many Americans missed the turn, consumed as they were by the need to get Anna Nicole Smith buried and justice gone wild in the pursuit thereof. The turn was there nonetheless, as word leaked that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi intends to appoint William J…

Do you believe televised debates between President Biden and former President Trump will actually happen or will fall apart for many potential reasons?
