The Minimum Wage: Separating Myth from Fact

The Minimum Wage: Separating Myth from Fact

288 viewsBefore taking office on January 20th, President Joe Biden . Among them is a plan to more than double the federal minimum wage, from $7.25 to $15 per hour. While the policy idea is well-intentioned, unfortunately for American workers and small businesses, raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour would destroy opportunity for millions. Moreover, a one-size-fits-all federal wage would severely increase these economic problems for wide swaths of rural America and states with low costs of living.A $15 per hour minimum wage would force many employers to cut hours, reduce...

Exposed: The Media Has Been Lying About The Capitol Protests

Exposed: The Media Has Been Lying About The Capitol Protests

55,843 viewsI&I EditorialEarlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced plans for a 9/11-style commission to “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the Jan. 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex.” Will that investigation include the media’s role in peddling flagrant falsehoods about what actually happened that day?Look up any story about the storming of the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters, and you will find it described as a “deadly riot” that killed five people.Worse still, one of the deaths was that a police officer who...

A Word About The Biden Return To ‘Normalcy’

A Word About The Biden Return To ‘Normalcy’

4,565 viewsI&I EditorialOne of the reasons the country should elect Joe Biden president, voters were told over and again last summer and fall, was that America needed to go back to the unexceptional days of B.T. – Before Trump. But if what we’ve seen so far is normal, then please give us the irregular, the unconventional, and the unorthodox.When Democrats and the media (do we always need to say here, “but we repeat ourselves”?) said Biden would lead us back to the political and social lives pre-Donald Trump, they meant more than just putting the pandemic behind us. They insisted normalcy...

Don’t Call Biden’s Plan ‘Stimulus’ — It’s Just Another Keynesian Fantasy

Don’t Call Biden’s Plan ‘Stimulus’ — It’s Just Another Keynesian Fantasy

2,235 viewsI&I EditorialJoe Biden’s promised stimulus is meant to boost an economy devastated by the Democrats’ national shutdown by handing out more checks and imposing a $15 national minimum wage. Sorry, it won’t work.“We must act now, and we must act decisively,” Biden said.Sounds good, but do we really? What he and Congress have proposed is an incoherent mess that will do the precise opposite of what he says it will. Even worse, it’s premised on the long-discredited idea that the government can stimulate the economy by spending more.From false premises come bad policies that will hurt...

Biden Inauguration Day: America’s Dark Winter Begins

Biden Inauguration Day: America’s Dark Winter Begins

748 viewsI&I EditorialJoe Biden will be sworn in as America’s 46th president on Wednesday. Far from being the start of an era of reconciliation, it will be an acceleration of the disunity that his party and its media division have whipped up. God, please have mercy on the United States of America.A few days removed from the 2020 election, Biden warned, as the coronavirus count was nearing 10 million, that the country was “facing a very dark winter.” We don’t disagree. Bleak days are ahead. But we disagree on the reason. This winter, and at least the next two years, are going to be grim as...

Purging MAGA Guarantees No GOP President Before 2037

Purging MAGA Guarantees No GOP President Before 2037

14,278 viewsI&I EditorialWell over a century ago, liberal John Stuart Mill famously Britain’s Tories the Stupid Party, an insult that has carried over to the Republican Party in America, which has proved itself over many decades to be well-deserving of the title.From GOP leaders’ sleepy contentment with permanent minority status in Congress before Ronald Reagan’s arrival on the scene, to Republican presidents’ appointment of disastrous Supreme Court justices ranging from Roe v. Wade author Harry Blackmun (Richard Nixon) to John Paul Stevens (Gerald Ford) to David Souter (George H. W. Bush),...

Left’s Hypocrisy On Full Display After D.C. ‘Insurrection’

Left’s Hypocrisy On Full Display After D.C. ‘Insurrection’

16,218 viewsI&I EditorialThe angry election fraud protest that led to the temporary takeover of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday perfectly illuminates the hypocrisy of the Democratic far left when it comes to political violence.Republican officials and rank-and-file GOP conservatives immediately and forcefully condemned the pro-Trump rioters. Nothing unusual about that: During this riot-torn year, Republicans have consistently, loudly and frequently denounced violence, no matter who did it.What about the Democrats and their extreme-left supporters? Tragically, for them, violence is always...

The Cold Civil War: Social Media Bans Threaten Free Speech For All

The Cold Civil War: Social Media Bans Threaten Free Speech For All

1,914 viewsI&I EditorialAfter last week’s Washington, D.C., protests, it didn’t take long for the Big Tech billionaires who own, control and run much of the internet and social media to reveal what they truly are: willing tools, a Fifth Column even, of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party and enemies of free speech. A reckoning is due.In a scene reminiscent of “The Godfather,” the Big Tech companies moved aggressively last weekend to “settle all family business” by deplatforming President Donald Trump, his supporters, a swath of the conservative movement, and anyone else who dares...

Trump’s An ‘Imminent Threat’? Dems Have Been Saying That For 4 Years

Trump’s An ‘Imminent Threat’? Dems Have Been Saying That For 4 Years

8,144 viewsI&I Editorial‘Donald Trump poses an imminent threat, not just to another person but to all of humanity.”That was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week justifying an immediate impeachment trial of Trump, right?Nope. That was from an article published in 2017 about a book by a group of psychiatrists who, having never met or talked to Trump, decreed that for the sake of the human race he had to be removed from office.Throughout Trump’s presidency, in fact, he’s been described as an “imminent threat” to the future of the country.Tom Steyer said in 2017 that “he really is an immediate...

Of Course The Party Of Moral Authoritarianism Would Cheat On Elections

Of Course The Party Of Moral Authoritarianism Would Cheat On Elections

3,323 viewsI&I EditorialWe and many others were warning months ago that the Democrats were going to try to steal the 2020 election. When the counting, recounting, and lawsuits are done, they might well have succeeded. It’s simply in their nature to do whatever they believe is necessary to further their agenda.The belief in one’s own moral superiority eventually erases the conscience. After all, if one is morally superior to others, then no conscience is needed. All actions and behaviors are acceptable because they’re done in an effort to make the world a better place. C.S. Lewis explained...

The RBG Replacement And Obamacare Forever: GOP Must Play The Long Game

The RBG Replacement And Obamacare Forever: GOP Must Play The Long Game

660 viewsThe decision on whether, how and why to push through a successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underscores how – for all the mystique and glamor ostensibly surrounding the biz of spinmeistery – sometimes the politics, PR and narrative in a given situation just don’t matter.Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.Once upon a time, for example, a youthful practitioner of the art worked with a megabillions-bucks investment client raking in – and trying to explain – getting free government money simply for taking over a failing savings and loan. Surely, the rhetorical magician...

Support Trump’s Court Nominee As If Your Freedom Depends On It — Because It Does

2,334 viewsPresident Donald Trump has vowed to move quickly to name a replacement for late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and urged the Senate to vote before the election. Not only is he constitutionally justified in doing so, but the future political stability of our nation depends on it.The pick, which Trump said will “likely” be a woman, is expected next week. There are a number of suitable for the highest court in the land. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already pledged to move forward with the confirmation hearings, perhaps the most important since Roger B. Taney...

The poverty rate is lower than it’s been since at least 1959, the annual Census report on income and poverty shows.These are incredible achievements that would be leading every newspaper and TV news program if they had happened under a Democratic president. The absence press coverage is even more astounding when you consider that the gains were among lower-income families, women, blacks and Hispanics.In other words, every...

States Push For Bailouts While CARES Act Funds Go Unspent, IG Report Finds

Is The Coronavirus Crisis Finally Over? A Nobel Laureate Says It Might Be

Today, they look even better.According to the Centers for Disease Control’s , released six days ago, shows that, through Aug. 29, predicted excess deaths have moved below the threshold for excess deaths. (See chart below.) When we last wrote about this, after total deaths had for months exceeded the threshold, the two numbers were moving closer.Stanford biophysics professor Michael Levitt, who won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Chemistry,...

California’s Power Failure Is A Frightening Preview Of Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’

California’s Power Failure Is A Frightening Preview Of Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’

5,907 viewsAmong the nightmares ready to descend on America, should the Democrats win in November, is the so-called Green New Deal. It promises lots of renewable green energy at a “modest” $2 trillion cost. Just one more scary, extreme policy idea out of the all-digital 2020 Democratic National Convention.“We agree with scientists and public health experts that the United States — and the world — must achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible, and no later than 2050,” the states.“To reach net-zero emissions as rapidly as possible, Democrats commit to eliminating carbon...

Could Trump Executive Order Eliminate AARP’s Sweetheart Deal?

899 viewsWhile President Donald Trump admits his announced on pre-existing conditions amounts to “signaling,” behind the scenes, some conservatives are urging the administration to explore the possibility of going one step further by eliminating a crony Obama-era giveaway to AARP. For context, look to the unholy alliance between AARP and the insurance giant UnitedHealthGroup. Its mission has apparently been to rake in profits on the backs of the American seniors it claims to “serve.” In fact, AARP has been hit with for allegedly receiving an “illegal kickback” in its sales of Medigap plans...

Don’t Be Surprised By Democrats’ Radical Turn – Fanaticism Is In Their DNA

One Swedish Model To Copy: No More COVID-19 Lockdowns

Just look at Sweden, which avoided a lockdown and slashed its daily COVID-19 death rate.Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari is the latest to create a stir by saying he favored a “really hard” four-to-six week lockdown of the economy to get the virus under control and help the economy rebound...

Donovan innocent of politically motivated fraud charges in a case that dragged on for four years, costing him his job and much of his fortune, he famously asked: “Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?” Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who underwent a similar ordeal, must be wondering the same thing.Donovan was charged in September 1984, conveniently just before the presidential election. If those who brought the charges thought they would ruin Republican Ronald Reagan’s reelection chances,...

From what I knew about its awful conditions, it was very easy for me to imagine how the corona outbreak would amplify the preexisting human catastrophe.Iran is one of the countries...
