Germany's Energy Disaster

Germany's Energy Disaster

inThe Biden administration remains committed to some version of the Green New Deal, despite devastating blackouts in California and Texas that should serve as warnings of the consequences of depending on inherently unreliable sources of electricity. Germany is one country that has advanced far down the path that “green” advocates want to take the U.S. So what has been the German experience, and how does it relate to the disasters we have seen in California and Texas?At , Isaac Orr lays out the facts in detail. His long post is worth reading in its entirety, but here are a few excerpts:[A]n...

Thank You, Donald!

Thank You, Donald!

in ,One of several laughable aspects of the “Biden administration”–literally, God only knows how much poor decrepit Joe Biden has to do with it–is the way in which it claims credit for the Trump administration’s accomplishments. On Twitter, Omri Ceren illustrates the phenomenon while ridiculing the Washington Post:Lol the Washington Post.— Omri Ceren (@omriceren)One of the dumbest of all the anti-Trump conventions was the “without evidence” trope. This was a single-use smear, analogous to an old-fashioned Derringer. The Democratic Party press fired it once, and we will never see it again....

Critical Race Theory: The Great Evil of Our Time

Critical Race Theory: The Great Evil of Our Time

in ,Critical Race Theory, which is just an updated form of racism, is the most destructive force of the 21st century. If you had told me 50 years ago that a half-century hence, there would be a successful social movement, dominating academia, politics and even the business world, holding that the most important thing about a person is his skin color, I wouldn’t have believed it. But that is where we are now.At the , my friend Roger Simon writes eloquently about the curse of CRT:Something called Critical Race Theory intervened to turn our society around, head it back toward racial enmity...

Fiasco In Anchorage

Fiasco In Anchorage

in ,On Thursday, delegations headed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi met at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage. It was the first such meeting of the Biden administration. There were both public and private sessions. The parties agreed that the public session would begin with a two-minute statement by each. Blinken spoke for two minutes, after which Yang contemptuously ignored the agreed-upon protocol and delivered a 20-minute attack on the United States. From there, things went from bad to worse.The , which, like pretty much all mainstream European news...

Do Masks Work?

Do Masks Work?

inWe are surrounded by sheep people wearing masks. Photographs taken during the past year will forever be recognizable as dating from the era of covid hysteria. Dr. Fraudci and others assure us that masks work, although if you plot cases, hospitalizations or deaths against dates when mask mandates were adopted, it is impossible to see any effect. And studies that purport to “prove” the effectiveness of masks fall apart .At , Spike Hampson applies a simple test. He compares the combined covid death rates of the ten states that have never had mask mandates with the combined death rates of the...

Can You Be Fired For Being Conservative?

Can You Be Fired For Being Conservative?

in ,In another sign of the times, an employee of a New York literary agency for having accounts on Parler and Gab.The president of a literary agency [the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency] based in New York City said Monday on Twitter that one of the agency’s employees was terminated after her use of conservative social media sites Parler and Gab was discovered.I have seen no suggestion that the victim, Colleen Oefelein, did anything wrong on those accounts, just that she participated in social media sites that are not deemed sufficiently leftist. Ms. Oefelein apparently is and “identifies...

Court Packing, Here We Come?

Court Packing, Here We Come?

in ,The Biden administration a “bipartisan” commission to study “reforms” to the Supreme Court. It isn’t hard to see where this is going:Biden campaign lawyer Bob Bauer and former deputy assistant attorney general within the Obama Justice Department Cristina Rodríguez will serve as co-chairs, according to Politico. The outlet said the commission’s exact mandate is still being determined.Here is a clue:Politico pointed out that Fredrickson, who has previously served as American Constitution Society president, remarked during an interview in 2019 that, “I often point out to people who aren’t...

This Year's Hardest-Hitting Ad

This Year's Hardest-Hitting Ad

inThe Freedom Club of Minnesota (of which I am a member) has put this ad on the airwaves in the Twin Cities. Titled “Make the Left Wing Radicals Stop,” it refers to “the bad people” and ties them to the Democratic Party. Some of the images are specific to Minnesota, but it could be used anywhere. The ad is definitely hard-hitting; is it over the top? You decide:Please enable JavaScript to view theCopyright © 2020 by Power Line and respective authors.

How Does Ginsburg's Death Affect the Race?

How Does Ginsburg's Death Affect the Race?

inAs Steve , Ruth Ginsburg died today. Steve said that we would be back tomorrow with more thoughts, so I am jumping the gun. Here are some preliminary observations:1) I think President Trump will nominate Amy Barrett to fill the vacancy, and will do so quickly.2) I think Mitch McConnell will schedule hearings to take place soon.3) The Supreme Court has always been a winning issue for conservatives. That will be true again. The Democrats will have a hard time attacking Barrett (or, I assume, anyone else Trump might nominate). The issue will be a net plus for the president, unless Republican...
