The arrival of Omicron gives America an unwarranted case of the willies.

But the rapid spread of the new Covid-19 variant more likely signals the end of the pandemic. With the emergence of the Omicron coronavirus variant, it looks like another round of senseless mandates has returned. Chicago, Cook County, New York City and other jurisdictions have pushed the panic button even though Omicron, while more contagious,... Read more »

Daunte Wright also is guilty.

Wanted for dodging a gun offense, he recklessly menaced a cop’s life while trying to escape Brooklyn Center, Minnesota officer Kim Potter has been convicted for first and second degree manslaughter for mistakenly shooting Daunte Wright.

If Biden truly wants to end the Covid pandemic he should do this: Fire Fauci.

President Joe Biden, as usual, today was notably unimpressive, ill-prepared and far off-track when he blessed America with his latest “plan” to fight Covid.

They’re pissed because rubes and hicks garroted their signature Big Back Better fiasco. Sure, they have spit their venom at West Virginia senator Joe Manchin for betraying their dreamy, stupid Build Back Better Act. But what riles them more is that Manchin’s West Virginians bested the progressive snobs who consider themselves intellectually and morally superior to those... Read more »

Did you hear? Obama and Eric Holder condemn Illinois gerrymandering.

Don’t laugh. This is a map (left) proposed by Democrats that compares with the current map (left) which is no bargain either. Well, not quite. They’re condemning the gerrymandering of congressional and state districts only in states run by Republicans. As for the unabashed gerrymandering that Illinois Democrats have used to run the state for... Read more »

Dave Chappelle is just right: Ridicule Jussie Smollett.

Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was recorded recommending steps everyone should take to stay healthy during the pandemic, including using mouthwash that can kill the coronavirus.
