Failing At Home, Biden Tries To Distract Americans With Yet Another Inevitably Deadly Conflict Overseas

President Joe Biden’s domestic strategy is failing so he’s trying to distract Americans with yet another inevitable deadly conflict overseas. Less than one year after he sacrificed at least 13 American lives and stranded thousands more to score political points by haphazardly withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan, Biden is seriously considering sending more American service members to die on foreign…

Why Are Energy Prices Everywhere So High? Democrats

When President Biden warned of a bleak and deadly winter, he was referring to the Covid-19 outbreak that he promised to “shut down.” While he has failed to curb the virus, his policies have unfortunately been more successful reining in our once thriving energy industry.

Joe Biden Left Behind A Humanitarian Crisis In Afghanistan

When I read this news, it broke my heart: an Afghan mother sold one of her newborn twins, a baby boy, to a childless couple for $104. She had no food for her baby boy or her seven other children.

How Easy Federal Money Could Be Laying The Groundwork For Another Housing Crash

If you think federal policies have caused sticker shock when you go to the department store or buy groceries, just wait for even more effects on the housing market.

CBO: Democrats’ Spending Spree Will Make Inflation Even Worse For Years

So much for fiscal responsibility. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of Democrats’ “Build Back Bankrupt” spending spree didn’t stop the House of Representatives from passing the legislation last Friday. Ironically, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, did more to delay the vote on the bill, speaking on the House floor for more than eight hours Thursday night and postponing…

How The Federal Reserve Keeps Stoking Inflation

The inflation tax that working families face under the Biden presidency has many root causes. But one of the biggest involves an individual most Americans have not heard of: Jerome Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank.

Biden’s Doubling Down On Race-Baiting And Gender Nonsense Reeks Of Desperation

As things collapsed for leftist Hollywood at the end of “Team America World Police,” puppet-actor Alex Baldwin began to scream left-wing buzzwords to reignite support for a sinking ship. “Global warming! And corporate America!” Baldwin cried (then in 2004), failing to inspire a rebound in confidence among a friendly audience. The situation feels peculiarly similar to President Joe Biden announcing…

Our $28 Trillion National Debt Is Coming Due

Just short of a year later, the national debt stands at $28.6 trillion and is set to surpass $29 trillion within weeks. Since Congress hasn’t yet enacted all its new spending proposals, the CBO debt estimates don’t yet include them. The $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill still has…

But that simplistic assumption both ignores other sources and understates the problems. Much of the responsibility—and the blame—lies within the Marriner Eccles Building in Washington, home of the Federal Reserve. As a new PBS “Frontline” documentary explores, the…

Biden’s Plan To Raid Medicare Shows His Callous Disregard For Math And Voters

The budget President Biden recently submitted to Congress resembles President Obama’s fiscal blueprints in many respects. It taxes too much, spends too much, and with $14.5 trillion in new federal debt, it certainly borrows too much. But Biden’s budget reflects his Democrat predecessor in another aspect: It uses hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare to pay for (among many…
