The Left’s Funny Definition of Fascism

According to weirdos, Donald Trump’s likely return to the White House will usher in an age of fascism unprecedented in American history, which is odd since a Trump presidency was recently precedent in American history, and that interregnum of constitutional governance brought us our only respite from nascent fascism – as defined by people who know what fascism is – in the last fifteen years or so. We heard this in 2016, too, and in 2020 as well.

CONG. McCAUL: As Israel's Fighting for its Very Existence, Biden has Only Made Negotiations & Victory More Difficult

President Biden backtracked on his ironclad commitment to Israel on May 8th – announcing he would withhold all offensive weapons to Israel if they entered Rafah to destroy Hamas terrorists. This decision was made without notifying Congress, in fact Congress wasn't even notified and instead, we learned about it on CNN. These weapons were approved & authorized by Congress. This week I introduced the "Ironclad Act" to prevent such pauses to Israel unless Congress is notified 15 days before.

Cong. Arrington Demands U.S. Sanction ICC Officials Following Netanyahu Arrest Warrant 

“President Biden is a weak leader, and a dishonest broker – he knew he'd withhold the security aid for Israel once he got money for Ukraine, and now he's sabotaged Israel and its fundamental right of self-defense. The damage he’s doing to our country – and America’s leadership in the world – is hard to quantify," said Congressman & House Budget Committee Chairman Jodey Arrington after the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s arrest.

CHRISTIAN: Biden Isn’t Savin’ Lizards in West Texas, He’s Shutting Down American Oil & Gas

“It doesn’t matter if it’s a lizard, a chicken, a whale or a unicorn. This doesn’t have a thing to do with ‘saving lizards’ – it’s about shutting down U.S. oil & gas production to score political brownie points, which will only increase inflation,” said Texas Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian after the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service announced it would be listing the Dune Sagebrush Lizard as an endangered species under the Endanger Species Act. “Radical environmentalists won’t ever be satisfied," said Christian.

VESPA: What Biden Said at NAACP Dinner Last Night Is Why Aides Want to Shorten His Speeches

NBC News has reported that Joe Biden’s aides and campaign advisers want him to shorten his remarks at public events – to refocus on quality, not quantity. But most Americans only see the president’s handlers making sure Mr. Magoo doesn’t sound as bad as he is. Even shorter speeches aren’t going to save Joe Biden. The man's a serial liar. If he doesn’t drop a whopper, he sounds like a man with dementia. At the  NAACP dinner in Detroit last night, he was again aloof & dishonest.

TURLEY: Even CNN & MSNBC's Anchors are Criticizing Trump's Accusers – and the 'Star Witness'

CNN’s Anderson Cooper has admitted that he'd "absolutely" have doubts about "Star Witness" Michael Cohen’s testimony if he were a member of the jury. And CNN Legal Analyst Elie Honig – a former State & Federal Prosecutor himself declared: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a star cooperating witness get his knees chopped out quite as clearly and dramatically.” So if liberal, anti-Trump legal experts say they don't yet understand the still mysterious case, will the jury realize they too are being played.

HANSON: Biden's Re-Election Strategy for an Unhealthy, Unpopular & Unsuccessful President

President Biden's not so much an octogenarian, as he is an unhealthy and prematurely aging 80-year-old. It is an America irony that he's fit for almost no other job in the country, other than the presidency – which apparently allows for a 3-day-a-week ceremonial role while others in the shadows run the country. So how does Biden become renominated and reelected, as polls show he's behind in almost every critical swing state on nearly every issue? The Answer: Not by Campaigning.
