Right Now?

Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) was a source of embarrassment for the Republican Party. He won the 2022 Pennsylvania Senate race despite an abysmal debate with Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz and being mentally and physically unwell. The former mayor of Braddock nearly died during that election from a severe stroke. The GOP couldn’t clinch a win against a candidate who was visibly suffering from a debilitating health crisis. Fetterman was hospitalized shortly after being sworn in, which didn’t do anything to neutralize the narrative that he wasn’t healthy enough to serve. Yet, after his stint in the hospital for mental health, Fetterman has become one of the most level-headed

It makes me think of that movie, where the office holder is an utter donkey's behind, but has a stroke and is in a coma. His party hires a body double to replace him... Unfortunately for them, the body double has a brain, sees where the corruption was and basically double crosses them to do good instead of graft.

I've been reading the things Fetterman has said in the last few weeks and thinking, "What?! Fetterman said that?" Maybe the stroke rewired his brain and made him a Republican.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) promises war if New York passes a bill forcing Chick-fil-A to open on Sundays. This week, Graham said he would withhold federal funding from any city or state government that enforces the proposed bill on the popular fast food joint. Last week, a bill was filed in the New York State Assembly that would require some Chick-fil-A locations to operate every day of the week, despite the restaurant's longstanding policy to keep its doors closed on Sundays for religious reasons. "This is war," Graham wrote on X. "If this goes forward, I will be introducing legislation withholding federal funds

When conflicts in the Middle East exposed the cracks in the foundation of the United States’ higher learning institutions, many college presidents tried to appeal to American democratic values to seal the gaps. The trouble is, it’s been so long since universities upheld democracy that most college presidents don’t even recognize it anymore. After a disastrous congressional hearing on anti-Semitism on December 5, University of Pennsylvania’s president Liz Magill has been sacked for attempting to excuse violent anti-Semitic threats on Penn’s campus. Harvard’s President Claudine Gay is also facing calls to resign following a federal investigation into Harvard University for possible civil-rights violations.

Harvard’s commitment to its own way of thinking was on full display during President Claudine Gay’s abominable December 5th congressional testimony concerning campus anti-Semitism, subsequent revelations alleging her plagiarism in various publications (the current tally is about 40) including her dissertation, and the university leadership’s response. After President Gay equivocated on Harvard’s response to anti-Semitism on its campus, the university’s governing body unanimously rushed to support her. The trustees made it plain to the world that they did not expect their president to live up to any common standard of human decency, intellectual honesty, or genuine scholarship.

Chicago residents are desperately suffering from President Joe Biden's immigration policies that have caused cities to use all of their resources on illegal aliens rather than on their own residents. This week, a prominent Black activist gave a passionate speech during an all-Democrat city council meeting, calling on officials to handle immediately hand the immigrant crisis by "sending them all back." George Blakemore condemned Biden's unwillingness to secure the border, urging former President Trump to "come in here and clean up this mess" as some of the poorest neighborhoods suffer from a lack of funding and city services due to the migrant crisis.
The plight of the Christmas card 9 replies

The horde of cards was as commonplace as ornaments and lights on the Christmas tree. They would arrive daily (except on Sunday) at a half-dozen a clip. Initially, it started as a trickle but once the calendar sank deeper into December, the numbers grew. Many were from people I did not know. By the time Christmas arrived, the avalanche of cards became part of our family’s Christmas décor — all in service to induce a sensation of good cheer throughout the Maresca abode. My mother would string the cards using yarn through the living room, and they would decorate every doorway.

American culture, under the aegis of the left, has gone insane. That’s why, when a “Black-led and Black-owned” site that “combines art and fashion with lifestyle commentary to create a strong social justice brand” publishes a leftist cliché-ridden essay saying that a Senate staffer’s sodomy in a Senate chamber was an Anne Frank(ish) act of rebellion against an “insurrection,” it’s impossible to know whether it’s real or not. I think it’s real and written either by a Harvard grad or AI. You’re already familiar with the background: Aidan Maese-Czeropski, a 20-something who worked for Sen. Ben Cardin, partnered with a German national

The headlines are impressive: A federal district court judge has ordered that documents containing the names of more than 150 Jeffrey Epstein “associates” must be released after January 1. However, before getting too excited, there are some caveats. Overall, though, this does rank as a good thing. In 2015, Virginia Guiffre sued Epstein’s procurer, Ghislaine Maxwell, alleging that Maxwell facilitated Guiffre’s sexual exploitation at Epstein’s hands. The two of them settled in 2017. Since then, there’s been a push to “un-redact” existing documents that identify people “associated” with Jeffrey Epstein

Every year, The Christmas Story is a holiday feature. I enjoy it a lot! The Chinese restaurant ending is great! Everything about this movie is so politically incorrect, from the old man to Mrs. Parker, to just about everything else. Remember the line about the old man being as good as an “Arab trader” when they are looking for Christmas trees? What about the lamp? The late Roger Ebert reviewed this movie in 2000. I’m not sure why he waited so long but he nailed it. This is Mr. Ebert’s review: One of the details that ‘A Christmas Story’ gets right is the threat

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue recently filed a lien against the property of Ashley Biden for $5,000 she has owed in income taxes since 2015. Her father was the vice president at the time. Ashley lives in Philadelphia with her husband. Liens enable the government to recoup unpaid taxes. The amount would be higher than the original amount because the government adds hefty penalties and interest. Maybe she should move to Maryland. Michael Byrd, the Capitol police officer who murdered Ashli Babbitt on January 6, seems to have no fear of the government coming after him. He has owed the government $56,366 since 2019.

As a sidelight to the December 5, 2023, House Committee on Education testimony of several presidents of elite universities, the media is currently feasting on a debate over plagiarism. Here, I argue that there is a difference between intentionally stealing another’s ideas and simply lazy, borderline-incompetent scholarship. I find that the allegation of plagiarism in this case is unfounded, while the blatantly incompetent scholarship that has led to the allegation is shocking. The congressional testimony of Claudine Gay of Harvard, Elizabeth Magill of Penn, and Sally Kornbluth of MIT reeked of hypocrisy.

Seven of Gay’s 17 published works have already been impacted by the scandal, but the new charges, which have not been previously reported, extend into an eighth: In a 2001 article, Gay lifts nearly half a page of material verbatim from another scholar, David Canon, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin.

The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas once again denied that its members committed rape and sexual violence during the October 7 attacks, despite ample evidence from eyewitnesses and forensic evidence recently documented by the New York Times. The Times of Israel reported Monday: Hamas refutes the New York Times report on the weaponization of rape and sexual violence during the Gaza terror group’s brutal onslaught against Israel on October 7. In a statement in Arabic and English, Hamas politburo member Basem Naim claims that the Western media and news agencies are “biased to what the Israeli propaganda says [in terms of] lies and slanders against the Palestinians and their resistance.”

Kamala Harris likes to play pretend. Fortunately for her, there's no better performance of make-believe than the cultural charade that is Kwanzaa. And since it's politically advantageous to do so, Kamala the Chameleon purports to be a lifelong celebrant of Kwanzaa. Advertisement For years, Kamala has told tall tales of cherished age-old Kwanzaa traditions in the Harris household. She has repeatedly claimed to nostalgically recall fond childhood memories of multi-generational Kwanzaa celebrations led by "the elders"® sharing stories of yore and lighting candles on the "kinara," a knock-off menorah. (The first "kinara" was forged from a desecrated Jewish menorah, in which two openings were broken off to create a seven-ring candleholder.)
