After a hundred days of President Biden, I think most Americans are now on to what will follow in the next few years. Joyless Joe -- Biden frowns. He grimaces. He occasionally barks and yells as he delivers a gloomy view of America and its people, past and present. Admit it: We are all racists, then and now, captives of Jim Crow still. Biden needs as many fabricated enemies as he can find; otherwise, his speeches, his demeanor, his agenda are little more than absurdities. They cannot stand or fall on their own merits because they have none. So grumpy Biden, in his latest and final incarnation, is always anti-something,

A county Democratic official from Northeast Texas is facing demands to resign after he used a racist slur to refer to South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott following the GOPers rebuttal to President Biden’s speech Wednesday night. “I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post, Fox News reported. Scott, one of only three Black U.S. Senators and the only Republican, has faced a barrage of racist attacks since his response to Biden’s address to Congress.

In an 1816 letter to his friend Charles Yancey, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves, nor can they be safe with them without information.” Jefferson was making the case for taxpayer-funded public schools. He believed an educated electorate with access to a free press would be proof against the government’s inclination to encroach upon our liberties. One wonders if he would take such a sanguine view after witnessing what passes for education and news reporting today.

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) responded to political strategist James Carville saying the Democratic Party “can’t be more liberal” than Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) because they will not be able to pass any of their legislation.Sanders shrugged off Carville’s remarks, saying he does not think Carville is “terribly relevant to what happens in Congress right now.”“[S]enator Manchin has said he’s not in favor of lowering the eligibility age [for Medicare]. Do you think that was probably why Joe Biden didn’t include your provision in his plan?”

Opinion polls, particularly in the buildup to a presidential election, are not designed to reflect public opinion, but instead to shape it. For the media, objectivity is only of historic interest, a journalistic tenet from a bygone era. (snip) CNN commissioned a poll to support their lovefest over Biden’s spendfest speech. Their headline on the day after Biden’s speech was “7 in 10 who watched say Biden’s speech left them feeling optimistic.” Start with the bit about “who watched.” How many Americans gave up an hour of their evening to watch

behind bars

A New York judge has released a man suspected of vandalizing synagogues across the Bronx - just hours after another judge defied the state's bail reform laws and ordered him locked up. Jordan Burnette, 29, faces 42 charges over a string of attacks on Jewish places of worship. He appeared in court Sunday, and was expected to be freed because New York State's bail reform laws say a suspect with his charges cannot be held on bail. But Bronx Judge Louis Nock classified some of the charges as 'hate crimes' and ordered him held on a $20,000 bail. However, the judge's defiance didn't last long.

Russia and Western European powers, meanwhile, gave contrasting accounts of the task ahead in the talks to bring Iran and the United States fully back into compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, as the talks adjourned for six days. “Sanctions... on Iran’s energy sector, which include oil and gas, or those on the automotive industry, financial, banking and port sanctions, all should be lifted based on agreements reached so far.”
