Republican candidate sells ‘RINO hunting license’ promoting shooting non-MAGA politicians

In 2016, Eric Greitens ran a campaign entirely focused on shooting things. Shooting things. Shooting more things. And also blowing up things. Seriously, this was Greitens’ first campaign ad and it was by far the least offensive. From there, the guns, explosions, and promise of violence only went up. Greitens, who had never held any sort of public office, went on to win the Missouri gubernatorial election by a large margin over Chris […]

Matthew McConaughey lobbies up for gun push

That description is identical to the careful rhetoric McConaughey deployed both in an op-ed and from the White House briefing room during a trip to Washington last week in which he implored lawmakers to come together to enact bipartisan gun reforms. “We need to invest in mental health care, we need safer schools, we need to restrain sensationalized media coverage, we need to restore our family values, we need to […]

No Pseudonymity in Challenge to Federal Vaccination Mandate

Plaintiffs in this case are thirty-nine individuals who are currently employed by federal executive agencies or federal contractors and have chosen to not receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Amid abortion battle, DeSantis vetoes birth-control funding — again

In talking to a very religious co-worker, I gleaned this. According to him, men and women don’t make babies, God does. Yeah, we’re going down that path here. Since he is convinced God grants a soul at conception for some reason (and not first breath, or first full moon after 2nd birthday), abortion is somehow undoing God’s work, though you’d think an omnipotent being would have known this ahead of […]

Russia is losing every day, but the cost of making them lose is painfully high

In looking at this article in the Ukrainian edition of Forbes, the biggest concern the author displays is about the consequences of losing Severodonetsk and the possibility that thousands of Ukrainian troops could be cut off and destroyed unless Ukraine pulls back in time. However, the sentence that’s likely to be both frustrating and frightening for many Western readers may be this one: Russia's superiority in manpower, heavy weapons and […]

Trump hits back at Kellyanne Conway for admitting that he lost in 2020

Conway served as Trump’s 2016 campaign manager and was a counselor to the president in the White House. She has remained close to him since she left the administration at the end of summer 2020. For all their years working together, Trump has seldom criticized Conway even as he’s attacked her husband, attorney George Conway, who helped start the anti-Trump organization the Lincoln Project and has been an outspoken critic […]

Mainstream Political Argument Forbidden “in the Modern Public Square” of Facebook

So reports Fox News (Kyle Morris); it's of course possible that there's some error in the reporting, but the screenshot (borrowed from a New York Post reprint of the Fox News account) seems to corroborate it: Naturally, such blocking doesn't violate the First Amendment (which governs only governmental speech restrictions) or any federal law; and, to my knowledge, it wouldn't violate any state social media nondiscrimination rules, even apart from […]
