  • The crux of the matter is that the Biden Administration dismantled or downgraded every policy that had established control over the Southern border under his predecessor and is directly responsible for the record number of illegal immigrants flooding into the country. If the influx wasn't so large, there'd be fewer migrants to sign up for the bus trips north and east to blue cities sponsored by Texas and Arizona.
  • Liberals in general, and Justice Elena Kagan in particular, are upset by the decisions of the conservative majority.
  • The truth is that Republicans, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have stymied serious efforts, even conservative ones, to curb the flow of undocumented immigrants. Florida is every bit as much a "sanctuary state" as New York. DeSantis just doesn't call it that.

    We get the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert and Lauren Boebert, people who could not pour water from a bucket if the instructions were printed on the bottom. Now comes Herschel Walker, fresh evidence of the American conviction that any moron can run a country. One has doubts this guy could run a garbage disposal.
  • We're in 2022. Low tension is history. In August 2019, then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed the reality. "We're entering a new age of strategic engagement in the Arctic," Pompeo said, "complete with new threats to the Arctic and its real estate, and to all of our interests in that region."

    Abrams has been widely celebrated in the years since her first run for Georgia governor in 2018 which she, of course, lost. Like former President Donald Trump, though, she managed to spin away her defeat to the satisfaction of her supporters as a result of nefarious forces beyond her control.
  • Computer chips are the little brains that run appliances, airplanes, mobile phones and cars. You can't have a modern economy without them.
  • It’s about cruelty as political stratagem. After all, if you solve a problem, you can no longer exploit it. But leave it unsolved and you can use it to rub raw the emotions of your target audience — e.g., white people terrified at the browning of America — and stampede them to the polls.

    The saying "the chickens have come home to roost" seems to apply to the immigration policies of the Biden Administration, sanctuary cities and states.
  • For the many stakeholders who find climate issues too removed from their own experiences to worry about, or too inconvenient to worry about when there are corporate profit margins to consider, this global crisis will remain merely a game — until it's far too late for any of us to win.
  • The senator from South Carolina [Lindsey Graham] has been reading the polls, clearly. After decades of railing against abortion and populating the U.S. Supreme Court with justices eager to ditch a right to an abortion, Republicans like him are discovering that the broader public never signed up for losing that option.

    A survey by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) has found "seven-in-10 young people, ages 18-24 are considering moving abroad for a better life. ... Inflation is at its highest since 1984 ... and mortgage rates are set to rise for the first time in 11 years." The Irish Times reports 10,568 people, including 3,137 children, "are now categorised as homeless in the Republic."
  • China's threat has no one single answer. The H96, however, definitely complicates China's war plans built on defeating big carriers and static bases.
