Biden, Day Fifty-Nine

President Joe Biden’s goal when he took office was to have 100,000,000 vaccinations administered in his first 100 days in office. Today is day 59 and the vaccine count is at 122,000,000— so he lied.

Welcome Attorney General Merrick Garland

Today was Merrick Garland’s first day. During his confirmation hearings, he clarified that his priority will be to address the Capitol riot on January 6.

Senate Indictment Doesn’t Stick to Teflon Don— Again

Before I start my rant about the Saturday vote to acquit Donald Trump, I believe the defense team’s creative method of distraction on Friday merits mention. The following people were randomly brought into the defense team's argument: Madonna, Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, ANTIFA, and of course Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton. Très bizarre. Democrats … Continue reading Senate Indictment Doesn’t Stick to Teflon Don— Again
