The Mainstream Media Has a New Solution For Covid-19: Communism

This past week, The New York Times published what might be its most offensive and ridiculous headline yet: “Power, Patriotism, and 1.4 Billion People: How China Beat the Virus and Roared Back.” What? Are we talking about the same China that hid thousands of cases from the world? The same China that forced people into hospitals and quarantine? Sadly, yes. And it gets worse because the article proceeds to praise the actions of the Chinese Communist Party — even arguing that Communist leader Xi Jinping and China should be a model for world leaders on how to handle the virus. “In the year since the coronavirus began its march around the world, China has done what many other countries would not or could not do. With equal measures of coercion and persuasion, it has mobilized its vast Communist Party apparatus to reach deep into the private sector and the broader population, in

Government is Asking You to Foot the Bill….Again

People of all political persuasions agree on two things: Roads need to exist and federal gas taxes are much too high. And while those points seem contradictory, they are both exactly right. The federal government spends trillions of dollars every year, yet our infrastructure falls behind other Western countries. On the same note, Americans are taxed at a high percentage rate for infrastructure, and it seems like that is only going to get worse. At a recent press conference, the new head of the Department of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, announced that he is heavily considering proposing a hike on federal gas taxes. As if we don’t pay enough already. Much like the recent talks of raising the minimum wage, this is a policy that most affects the middle class and poor. Transportation is a necessary expense, and a federal tax would take a larger portion of their income while impacting the

The Most Terrifying Words in the English Language

President Reagan got it right when he said, “The most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I am from the government and I am here to help.’” This quote seems to be even more relevant in the age of COVID-19. Government has tried over and over to “help” relieve the economic mess they created by shutting down the economy. With deceitful titles like “relief bill” and “CARES Act,” I think we can all agree that we just want the government to stop trying to help us. This past week, the Democrats in the House introduced legislation to raise the federal minimum wage. And sadly, they are not the first to do so in recent weeks. Recently, the Long Beach City Council passed a “Heroes Mandate” which forces businesses with more than 300 employees to pay an additional $4 dollars an hour per employee. This has been devastating for many

The Unions Are Holding Your Child’s Education Hostage

We now have a vaccine, and whether or not you make the individual choice to take it, it’s pretty clear to most people that the elderly and frontline health care workers should be first to receive the vaccine if they choose to. However, a teachers union in Chicago disagrees with this. The teachers union demanded that they be given the first priority in line, or schools would not be open — the union is holding the education of the children in their school system hostage.   But the problem is, even after they were allowed to skip ahead of the elderly, the teachers union is still demanding to stay at home until there are no new cases for two weeks. One could argue that they are doing this at the consensus of the teachers for the protection of the students. The only problem with that is that every study shows that

The Creature from Jekyll Island has its Tentacles Around Washington

This week, the Biden administration is in full swing. And the one thing it has proven is that the more things change, the more they stay the same—big government will ALWAYS expand. In his first week of governing, President Biden is putting in place a whole slew of big government-loving bureaucrats into his cabinet. At the head of the line is Treasury Secretary, Dr. Janet Yellen, who is the former head of the Federal Reserve. That’s right. The cabinet pick for the head of the Treasury formerly controlled one of the most corrupt (and arguably illegal) aspects of the US government. However, this shouldn’t shock us since Biden has been condoning the Federal Reserve’s heinous behavior while working on Capitol Hill for the past 40 years. Congress delegates the power to print money to the Federal Reserve. And no matter how much inflation and pain the Fed causes the American taxpayer,

Biden is in. Brace for impact…

Well, here we go. Today marks the inauguration of Joe Biden as president — and a federal government controlled by Democrats in both chambers of Congress. Try to imagine what might happen over the next few years. That imagination is more nightmare than dream. Granted, things haven’t been peachy in recent years; while Trump did some impressive things, we also saw massive, wasteful stimuli, flooding the economy with trillions of new dollars, ever-ballooning national debt, and more. But Biden’s administration will undoubtedly be worse, if for no other reason than that socialists are economically ignorant and willfully so. After all, it was AOC who said “It’s more important to be morally right than factually correct.” And how might this economic ignorance look in the months and years to come? Here’s one example: Biden’s team aims to be the “first administration ever to construct economic policy around issues like race, gender
