I feel lured into talking about Hilaria Baldwin, but what do I want to say? What did I say about Rachel Dolezal... and is this the same... or worse... or better?

I thought I could get away with dropping this one seemingly juicy sentence from The Washington Examiner.... But while, say, the New York Times decided that Hilaria's cosplaying as a Latina stereotype was off-limits — even as they wrote growing profiles of her as well, including uncritically her "slight Spanish accent" — the paper of record has celebrated children having their college admissions revoked for a video of them singing the N-word along to a song when they were 15 as a "reckoning."  I...

Peter Navarro Puts Out ‘Immaculate Deception’ Report Rehashing Debunked Trump Complaints

The President’s top trade adviser circulated a Thursday detailing all the ways that, in fact, the 2020 election was stolen on Joe Biden’s behalf. Peter Navarro, who infamously invented and quoted the fake expert “ Ron Vara ” in several of his books, provided a similarly colorful analysis of the supposed “irregularities” he said plagued the 2020 race — starting “at the stroke of midnight” on Election Day.  He also repeated obvious mistakes that have been pointed out by judges and nat...

Biden picks insiders, not progressives, for Cabinet

During the presidential race, Republicans had argued that, if elected, Joe Biden would serve as a figurehead for the Democratic Party’s progressive activists. They said he would usher in socialism, albeit in a more genteel manner than Bernie Sanders. Inauguration Day isn’t until January 20, but the president-elect’s initial Cabinet and transition-team choices suggest a return to the Washington, D.C.-style establishmentarianism that reined during the Obama and Bush administrations. There’s a lot ...
