Bold & Blunt: More COVID lies, more COVID coverups

Anthony Fauci took to congressional halls to testify before a House subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic -- but if Americans were expecting any apologies for flawed science or for flawed guidance to come from the lips of President Joe Biden's top COVID guy, they were sorely disappointed. Published June 4, 2024

Anthony Fauci, then-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testifies during a hearing in Washington, Sept. 14, 2022. Fauci, who left the government in 2022, is facing heated questioning from Republican lawmakers about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. The top U.S. infectious disease expert until 2022, Fauci was grilled by the House panel behind closed doors in January. On Monday, June 3, 2024, they're questioning him again, in public and on camera. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)

Fauci, still crazy after all these years

Had the concept of God-given individual rights and liberties been in play during the coronavirus years, America never would have reached the point where then-COVID policy czar Anthony Fauci was allowed to dictate-while-pretending-Not-To-Dictate how free citizens live their lives.

America, due to Democrats, is utterly torn by talk of ‘civil war’

In the wake of 12 jurors ridiculously finding Donald Trump guilty of 34 felony counts for crimes that had they even have been committed, would have been misdemeanors at best -- talk of civil war looming in America has returned in full force. This is the world the Democrats bring. Published June 3, 2024

Biden’s secret launch of World War III

As the eyes of the world were on Donald Trump in the Manhattan courtroom, Joe Biden gave a quiet presidential permission for Ukraine to use American weapons and launch a strike inside Russia, to protect the border city of Kharkiv. World War III, anyone? Published May 31, 2024

Biden’s 12th-hour race to reclaim Black voters

President Biden, with Vice President Kamala Harris in tow, kicked off a cross-country tour to beg, err, remind Black voters to vote for him this November. He's doing that because increasingly polls are showing Black voters don't want to vote for him this November. Tick, tock. Time is a-tickin'. Published May 30, 2024

The temporary pier is part of the Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore capability. The U.S. military finished installing the floating pier on Thursday, with officials poised to begin ferrying badly needed humanitarian aid into the enclave besieged over seven months of intense fighting in the Israel-Hamas war.

Sinking pier perfect symbol of Biden presidency

President Biden ordered the U.S. military to build a $320 million floating pier to serve as a provision point for aid to Palestinians in Gaza. And now it's sinking. Of course it's sinking. Truly, is there a better symbol for the Biden administration than the pier that's sinking in waters off Gaza? Published May 29, 2024

Bold & Blunt: Optimism during dark Joe Biden times

It's one thing to stay on the sunny side of life when life is itself sunny. It's another thing entirely to stay on the sunny side when darkness prevails. And that's just what this current Joe Biden administration is bringing to America and to the world: Darkness. So how to stay optimistic? Published May 28, 2024

Honoring evil dishonors God

The United Nations lowered its flag to half-staff while all representatives of the Security Council joined in a moment of silence for the "Butcher of Tehran" -- the now-dead Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi. Another show of this White House's lack of moral clarity. Published May 24, 2024

Biden waves another magic student debt-erasing wand

President Biden is busily buying votes, err, canceling college student debt because he's down in the polls, err, concerned about the youth population. He's got to do something because November beckons and nobody wants to vote for him. Published May 22, 2024

ICC, Iran, take note: Those who curse Israel will be cursed

The International Criminal Court signed arrest warrants for the leaders of Hamas for atrocities against the Jewish people, and then, in what should be seen as a sick joke but is not, issued the same for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense minister, Yoav Gallant. Take a warning, ICC. Published May 21, 2024

Fake eyelashes, fake outrage: Democrats need to man up

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is fielding fire because she snarked at a fellow House member, namely, Democrat Jasmine Crockett, that her "fake eyelashes" were quite possibly preventing her from seeing clearly. But Greene didn't throw the first dart. Crockett did. Published May 18, 2024

Liar, liar, Michael Cohen’s pants on fire

We can't have a country where politically ambitious scum buckets like Michael Cohen who register zero on the morality Richter scale are able to drag people they detest into court and run sham trials aimed at cowing them into silence and destroying their lives, and the lives of their families. That's what communist countries do. Published May 17, 2024

WHO pandemic treaty utterly unacceptable for America

The World Health Organization is finalizing with its partner states the details of a pandemic treaty that is supposed to protect the citizens of the globe from future COVID-like devastations. America's only suitable response is to tell the WHO to take a hike. Published May 16, 2024
