Who or What Exactly Is Running Against Trump?

    By Victor Davis Hanson, Americian Greatness The inner-Biden at 77 is turning out to be an unabashed bigot in the age of “cancel culture” and thought crimes that has apparently declared him immune from the opprobrium reserved for any such speech.

But what are the symptoms of what cannot go on and when?  There are two historic red lines and our revolution is getting close to both.  When Normal People Grow Weary  One is […]

The Doctrine of Media Untruth

The Doctrine of Media Untruth
