Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show is as eye-poppingly insightful as ever! Brian and I have a long discussion of the brewing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, its historical basis, and whether NATO and the U.S. can play any constructive role in it (don't bet on it!). We also cover the constitutionality of Governor Hochul's mask mandates and the medium-term future of the COVID pandemic, plus the astonishing weakness of Biden and the Democrats in recent polls. If those lefties thought they were going to ride COVID paranoia and January 6th outrage all the way to victory in November 2022, they appear to be sorely mistaken!
When we turn to This Day in History, Brian and I discuss the Franco regime in Spain, the horrific ordeal of U.S. POWs in North Vietnam, the bitter fighting in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France in the closing months of WWII, and Ukraine's (futile) declaration of independence in 1918.
All this -- and more! -- awaits you should you choose to click on the link below and let the wisdom of Waddism bathe your brain in brilliance. Who could say no to an offer like that???
Here's a holistic analysis of the Dems' polling woes, which ought to set off alarm bells at DNC headquarters!
And here's Tucker Carlson's take on U.S. adventurism in Ukraine. He says that only China benefits from a potential conflict between the U.S. and Russia. He makes an excellent point (as usual)!
Good ole President Biden doesn't appreciate it when journalists ask him hard questions. I mean, you can see where he's coming from -- no one in the Washington press corps would have dreamed of asking the man a hardball question during the 2020 campaign... And now, all of a sudden, these "reporters" start doing their jobs? What the heck!
And, if the Dems are tempted to declare victory over COVID and coast to electoral triumph in November, they should remember that plenty of other problems are high -- and, in this one case, higher -- on voters' list of concerns. Inflation may well break the back of the Democratic Party in 2022.
One of the biggest stories of 2022 so far is the decision of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire, meaning that "President" Biden will get to name his replacement. The Dems have already decided on the race, gender, and ideology of the appointee. The personal details hardly seem relevant. The bad news, of course, is that we'll be living with this judicial monstrosity for decades -- and, if Trump had prevailed in 2020, he would have gotten the opportunity to further entrench conservative domination of the judicial branch. Talk about a missed opportunity!
Fox News ran an excellent piece last night about the immense pressure on scientists in the early stages of the pandemic to reject the lab origin theory of COVID's genesis. Basically, it was unpalatable to point fingers at the Chicoms, so anyone who did so was lambasted as a conspiracist. As usual, the truth was a casualty.
Finally, are our Dem-run cities cesspools of atavistic violence? You betcha!
