No One Left to Blame

Advertisements
Vivek Ramaswamy was in sixth grade when he became a conservative, and the man to blame, he writes in Nation of Victims: Identity Politics, the Death of Merit and the Path Back to Excellence, was General Electric CEO Jack Welch.

Ramaswamy’s father was an engineer at GE and, thanks to Welch’s famous penchant for ruthless cost-cutting, Ramaswamy explains, “the threat of layoffs hung over our head.” Because of that insecurity, his father took night classes to get a law degree. His mother, a geriatric psychiatrist, worked extra hours. Tagging along to the nursing home after school, Ramaswamy would

What You Missed on Twitter This Week, Vol. 3

Advertisements
Welcome back! It’s impossible to know at the beginning of each week how the Biden administration, Democratic politicians, and media hacks will embarrass themselves. The only thing we know is that they will.

The president and his administration are not answering questions about the classified documents scandal, and they haven’t come up with a good excuse for their silence. House Republicans are apparently responsible for high gas prices, and Kevin McCarthy is taking on a hostile press as the newly elected House Speaker. Our president still doesn’t know what he’s talking about, or even where he is.

Here’s what

Michael Sandel: Elitist in Democrat’s Clothing

Advertisements
In 1996 Harvard government professor Michael Sandel, now a chairholder whose online course on “Justice” has reportedly been viewed by tens of millions worldwide, published Democracy’s Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy, to widespread acclaim. Sandel’s theme was the “anxiety and frustration” with which American politics was beset, despite our triumph in the Cold War, “unprecedented affluence,” and “greater social justice for women and minorities.” Sandel attributed that anxiety to Americans’ fear that they were “losing control” of their lives to outside forces, while simultaneously experiencing the “unraveling” of the “moral fabric of community” at the

Alzheimer’s Association Hides New Partnership With Lobbying Group for Assisted Suicide

Advertisements
Selling assisted suicide to “historically marginalized communities” is a difficult business, because it tends to kill prospective clients and smacks of eugenics. Compassion & Choices, the nation’s largest and most active assisted suicide lobbying group, has found a new way to remedy this. It has enlisted the help—and data—of a trusted brand: the Alzheimer’s Association.

It’s a bizarre fit. While the Alzheimer’s Association spends considerable resources to overcome what it describes as “the stigma” of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the CEO of Compassion & Choices, Kim Callinan, has described dementia as “a fate worse than death.”

Compassion & Choices was

An Idiot’s Guide to Glowing Coverage in the New York Times

Searching for sympathetic coverage from the New York Times? Here’s a hack: Earn an advanced degree, then commit a violent crime in the service of your radical politics. 

We have closely followed the cases of Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis, the New York City attorneys who tossed a Molotov cocktail into a police cruiser in May of 2020. Or, as the New York Times put it, their legal careers were sidetracked when “a Molotov cocktail ignited the center console of an empty police car during a Black Lives Matter protest.” Rotten luck! 

Rahman went to Fordham.

Soros-Funded Fake News Operation Pushes Facebook to Reinstate Trump Ban

Advertisements
A progressive billionaire-funded network of Democratic propaganda sites masquerading as legitimate news websites is leading the push to keep former president Donald Trump off Facebook and Twitter.

Courier Newsroom, which bills itself as the “largest left-leaning news network in the country,” organized a petition this week to pressure Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Elon Musk to keep Trump off their platforms. Facebook said Thursday it would reinstate Trump “in the coming weeks.” Twitter reinstated Trump in November, but the former president has not posted on the site. Both sites banned him in January 2021, under pressure from Democratic lawmakers

Union’s Attempt to Organize Video Game Developers Falls Flat

Advertisements
One of the largest unions in the country won national attention last month when it declared it had won the support of a video game development studio’s employees to unionize. But weeks later, the union is now admitting defeat and canceling plans to hold a vote after employees criticized the labor group.

The Communication Workers of America in December celebrated its successful effort to convince a supermajority of workers at Proletariat, a studio belonging to video game developer Activision Blizzard, to unionize. After the union announced this week it had given up on plans to hold a unionization vote,

WATCH: Joe Biden’s Senior Moment of the Week (Vol. 27)

Advertisements
President Joe Biden had another successful week. He managed to stay alive and out of the hospital as he prepares to officially launch his campaign for reelection next month. Alas, he also struggled to conceal his rapidly declining cognitive health.

The 80-year-old commander in chief attempted to locate a man named “Doug,” but was not successful. We hope Doug is still alive, unlike Jackie. He continued to bungle his numbers, heralded the arrival of “artificial intelivance” technology, and shouted incoherently in the fashion of a demented geezer.

Biden pledged to deliver tanks and “viting vehicles” to “help

Three criminals directed by Iran to assassinate a U.S. journalist critical of the regime were charged Friday in the murder-for-hire scheme, the Justice Department announced.

The three were part of an Eastern European criminal organization paid by the Iranian government to kill exiled journalist Masih Alinejad, who now lives in New York. The regime has made multiple attempts to kidnap or kill her within America. Alinejad was the target of a 2021 kidnapping plot that led to the indictment of four Iranian-connected people.

“The Islamic Revolutionary Guards have been conducting these terrorist operations for four decades. Islamic Republic

Iranian Human Rights Leader: ‘We Are in the Middle of our Revolution’

Iranian citizens “are in the middle of our revolution,” according to a leading Iranian journalist and human rights activist.

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian dissident living in the United States and key figure in the protest movement that has swept across the Islamic Republic over the past five months, said in an interview that the demonstrations have transformed into a full-blown revolution that aims to depose the hardline regime.

“We are in the middle of our revolution,” Alinejad told Sen. James Lankford (R., Okla.) in the latest episode of his podcast, an advance copy of which was provided to the
