This week, President Biden's military declared its first war ... on Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

February 11th, 2021 3:28 PM

This week, Virginia Heffernan, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, unleashed the most perverse column in recent memory. The title: "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?"

The Inequality of ‘Equity’

February 3rd, 2021 11:17 PM

President Joe Biden took office pledging a return to unity and decency. A new era of good feelings is at hand, we were informed by both his administration and its sycophants in the media. A new world -- a world of "equity" -- is at hand. Equity, you see, is the word of the day. Not equality -- that would be a traditionally American concept.
