Putin’s ‘Winter War’ on Ukraine

In the final days of this lame-duck Congress, before control of the House passes to Republicans in January, Democrats are expected to approve Joe Biden’s request for another $38 billion for the Kyiv regime, its army and its war. Passage of this legislation would virtually guarantee that the U.S. continues to finance this war and […]

Democrats, Not ‘Democracy,’ at Risk Today

  What do liberal Democrats do, if, in a free and fair election, U.S. voters throw them out and replace them with people our elites routinely equate with fascists and Nazis? We may be about to find out. “Make no mistake — democracy is on the ballot for us all.” So declaiming in his Union […]
