A power outage in Venezuela and Leftist denial

The collapse in Venezuela, rather than bringing enlightenment to America’s Leftists, instead sees them double-down on their delusions about socialism. This post is what Instapundit refers to as a “shot” and “chaser” scenario. Here’s the shot (hyperlinks omitted): In Venezuela, there’s a new front — the equivalent of an EMP [Read More]

Anti-Semitism in the Democrat party: how we got here *UPDATED*

Anti-Semitism in the Democrat party represents a pragmatic confluence of socialism, African-American anti-Semitism, and Islamic anti-Semitism.
