The Biden White House on Tuesday expressed openness to working with Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on child tax credit payments, after the Utah lawmaker called for a bipartisan approach on the issue. “We’re going to work with anybody who’s interested in taking steps to lower costs for the American people, whether it’s on child care or elder care or healthcare,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters, when asked about Romney’s recent statement. Romney has proposed a program similar to the monthly CTC payouts that look set to end due to opposition from Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia

i bet Donkey strategists dream of driving out Kamala, putting Romney in her place as VP in the name of National Unity harmonized by dreamy songs of Love and Patriotism on their pet media, then driving out Biden, thus elevating Romney so he'd be GOP nominee for Prez in 2024, then they could beat Romney at the polls in 2024, and basically have themselves a do over in the old familiar way of defeating hapless GOP with just about anybody. You bet they are nice to him. You bet they are. Until 2024 when it willl be back to the dog elevators.

Put it out there as a single bill, and not as part of the giant Build Back Bolshevik, and it would probably pass easily. Omnibus legislation allows for all sorts of shenanigans that the public never sees. There was a movement years ago to force Congress to limit bills to plain language, one issue only. Of course, most of the porkers hated the idea and it never went anywhere. These clowns could have done the same thing for insulin costs, and it would have been done a year ago or more. Or, Xiden could have not overturned Trump's EO on it until Congress passed it. You can argue that price controls are not what we should be doing, but $1000 / month for insulin is outrageous, given how long it has been widely available. More medical cost inflation driven by government 'picking up the tab' for everything.

Dims think they could trust Mitt? I hope they try. Romney is a reed bending in the wind - at best. He is principally unprincipled whose philosophy depends on whether he faces East or West when he wakes up in the morning.

Romney is always open to harming the American people a bit more. My working approach to any issue is "If Mittens supports it, I am against it." There may, some day be an exception to that, but it's a solid starting point, always.

How Amazon Crushes Small Business 20 replies

Much has been written over the past year about how Amazon treats its warehouse workers and other employees and its attempts to prevent their unionization. But the mistreatment of Amazon’s labor force is far from the only negative effect of having once-thriving mom-and-pop shops gobbled up by or placed at the mercy of a faceless e-commerce leviathan. Amazon’s ascent means that more and more Americans are losing their commercial autonomy, the right to dictate and introduce innovations into the terms of their own transactions and business relations, and, ultimately, their ability to control their financial—and, therefore, personal—destinies.

In November, Secretary of State Antony Blinken removed Nigeria from the State Department’s list of countries hostile to religious freedom. The move flabbergasted religious freedom advocates, including members of the U.S. government’s own Commission on International Religious Freedom. That commission had urged Blinken in April to keep Nigeria on the list, pointing to “violence by militant Islamists and other non-state armed actors, as well as discrimination, arbitrary detentions, and capital blasphemy sentences by state authorities” in the country. In 2020, the Trump administration designated Nigeria as a “Country of Particular Concern” (CPC) on religious freedom.

Last week in this space, I included a few words about Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s remarkable new book, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. I also included a link to Kennedy’s appearance on “Tucker Carlson Today.” It was a remarkable exchange and I commend both the book and the interview to your attention. I disagree with Kennedy about various things, including the efficacy of vaccines in general, but his assessment of the highest-paid employee of the federal government, Anthony Fauci, is worth the price of admission.

During an interview with Wall Street Journal reporter Joanna Stern on Monday, tech mogul and entrepreneur Elon Musk said “civilization is going to crumble” if declining birth rates continue. The population trend—coined a ‘demographic winter’ by social scientists—has steadily worsened over recent decades, primarily in first-world countries. “There are not enough people,” the 50-year-old father of six said. “I can’t emphasize this enough, there are not enough people.” Musk pointed out a widely understood assumption, that labor is “the foundation of the economy,” and without labor, production and growth are severely compromised.

The day after Thanksgiving—the day after Thanksgiving—I was riding in somebody else’s car when some unholy noise started screeching from the radio. I’ve blocked the memory of exactly what it was, but suffice it to say that it was some kind of “Christmas” music of the abhorrent Mariah Carey variety. The driver, in a sadistic tone undeniably intended for yours truly, defended the move with just two words: It’s time. I despise Christmas music. I hate it. I can’t stand it. I don’t want to listen to a single minute of it, and I certainly don’t want to listen to it starting at Thanksgiving and stretching right up to New Year’s.

Leaks are turning into floods. We are hearing about brutal clinical studies on puppies and other animals, and now a study involving orphans in New York. These studies were funded, in whole or part, by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a federal agency headed up by Anthony Fauci since 1984. In 2014, investigative reporter, Liam Scheff, wrote an article at omsj[dot]org, looking back on the orphan scandal. Ten years earlier, he had broken the story, and was then subjected to multiple attacks in the press.

Not so long ago, President Joe Biden was being talked of as a transformative president, a second Franklin D. Roosevelt in terms of the domestic agenda he would enact. And there was substance to the claim. Early in his presidency, Biden had passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package. While his majorities in both houses of Congress were razor-thin, they proved sufficient to push through a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. Clusters of Republicans backed the Biden infrastructure bill.

It might be an instance of Hillary’s mouth running ahead of her brain, but don’t count on it. Hillary is a coldly calculating woman -- and that might be one of her better qualities. Hillary suggested that if Trump or “someone of his ilk” is elected president in 2024, then American democracy is kaput. Foolishness? Knowing the conceits and delusions that infect her intended audience, her suggestion might not seem ludicrous.
