Don’t Listen to the Left: Here’s What West Virginians Really Think of Manchin’s ‘No’ to Biden

The general feeling on the left is that the voters of West Virginia are going to punish Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin for not voting for President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better spending spree, effectively killing it. Never mind the fact that the White House had done almost nothing to address Manchin’s issues with it: the risk of inflation, the fact it launched numerous long-term programs with only short-term funding solutions, those sorts of serious existential issues. (Both of these were very real concerns — something the media didn’t particularly want to report on. We’ve been bringing you all of this at The Western Journal since the spending bill was announced, it’s worth noting, and we’ll continue to bring America the truth about the Democrats’ tax-and-spend plans. You can help us bring A...

Mark Meadows Just Made His Second Big Move Against Pelosi and Her Jan 6 Committee

Well, that’s all too fitting for what we’re seeing right now unfold with Mark Meadows and Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th sham committee. Early on, Meadows, who was President Trump’s chief of staff, agreed to cooperate with the committee and sent over thousands of pages of non-classified documents and text messages for Pelosi and her jackals to review. But that wasn’t good enough.

If You Can’t Question It, Don’t Call It Science

Follow the Science presented by Brian Keating I’m an astrophysicist at a major university. Science is my life. But when I hear somebody somberly intone, “science says” or “follow the science,” I get very nervous. Science doesn’t belong to any ideology. Science is the never-ending search for new knowledge. That’s what science means in Latin, by the way—knowledge. Not wisdom. Not morality. Not social policy. Knowledge. What we do with that knowledge is where wisdom, morality, and social policy enter the picture. Knowledge, it turns out, isn’t so easy to come by. And sometimes what we think we know for certain (the earth sure does look flat when we’re standing on it) turns out not to be so certain. Of course, I trust in basic scientific tr...

It’s Over for Kamala

Vice President Kamala Harris may very well be one of the most unpopular people in American politics, both with voters and in Washington. We’ve been hearing reports about internal strife and departures from her staff, giving off the feeling of a sinking ship that the rats are abandoning. (READ: Even Rats Have Reputations, and Kamala Harris Is Sinking) A new poll has shown that a large majority of voters do not like Harris at all, with “very unfavorable” outweighing the “very favorable” by a massive margin, according to the New York Post: A Rasmussen Reports poll found that just 39 percent of likely voters have a favorable impression of Harris, while 57 percent have an unfavorable view of the veep. Harris is further underwater among those who have strong views of her. While 19 percent of lik...

Jussie Smollett convicted of staging hate crime, lying to cops

Jussie Smollett was found guilty on 5 out of 6 charges at his hate crime hoax trial. After a contentious week of witness testimony, counsel arguments and deliberation, the jury found Smollett guilty on the first five counts, and he was acquitted on a sixth count of lying to a detective weeks after Smollett said he was attacked. Smollett was stoic as the jury read the verdict. The actor sat upright and stared straight ahead without showing any outward emotion. The 39-year-old “Empire” alum was charged with six counts of disorderly conduct related to false statements to Chicago police officers about a 2019 hate crime against him. In 2019, he claimed that two men attacked him due to his skin color and sexual orientation. He was found guilty of telling a police officer he was a hat...

Guess Who Trump’s ‘Tax Cuts for the Rich’ Benefited the Most

There’s a refrain we hear almost by default when a Republican proposes tax cuts. Like Pavlov’s dogs or preprogrammed robots, Democrats rush out to decry “tax cuts for the rich.” How about this headline from The Guardian in 2019: Trump’s tax cuts helped billionaires pay less than the working class for first time — and that was two years after the tax cuts. And don’t forget what one leading Democrat said: Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who now serves as the speaker of the House, said on November 6, 2017, “Despite Republicans’ empty promises to cut taxes for middle class working families, it’s clear that the GOP tax plan for the wealthiest is rich indeed.” “House Republicans’ tax bill would increase taxes for 12 percent of Americans next year, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Cen...

Apple CEO Signed Secret Agreement With China Promising To Help Them, Report Says

According to a new report, Apple CEO Tim Cook secretly signed a $275 billion agreement years ago with the Chinese government in which he promised Apple would aid China’s economy and tech industries with investments as well as worker training. The Information reported on Tuesday, “iPhone recently became the top-selling smartphone in China, its second-biggest market after the U.S., for the first time in six years. But the company owes much of that success to CEO Tim Cook, who laid the foundation years ago by secretly signing an agreement, estimated to be worth more than $275 billion, with Chinese officials promising Apple would do its part to develop China’s economy and technological prowess through investments, business deals and worker training.” “Cook forged the five-year agreement, which...

Mark Meadows Sues Pelosi, Jan. 6 Committee for Unconstitutional Overreach

Former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows filed suit Wednesday against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and every member of the January 6 select committee in response to their attempt to hold him in criminal contempt. “The subpoenas issued to Mark Meadows and Verizon were issued by the Select Committee as part of an unconstitutional attempt to usurp the Executive Branch’s authority to enforce the law and to expose what the Select Committee believes to be problematic actions by a political opponent,” the lawsuit reads. “Congress has no authority to issue subpoenas for these purposes.” The former North Carolina representative told Newsmax earlier this week the committee was abusing its power. “For months, Mr. Meadows has consistently sought in good faith to pursue an accommodation with the S...

Joe Biden Discusses His Meeting With Putin — and He Really Shouldn’t Have

Yesterday, Joe Biden held a meeting with Vladamir Putin in which the former tried to convince the latter not to invade Ukraine. For months, the Russians have been building up forces on the border, threatening to move into the Eastern European country as they did with Crimea back in 2014. How did that meeting go? Well, the White House wouldn’t allow the press to observe it and refused to provide a transcript (remember when that was a scandal under Donald Trump?), but because Russia did allow some media in on their end, we know that Biden started things by forgetting to turn his mic on. From there, indications are that sanctions and other consequences were discussed. Today, we got a little more detail from the President of the United States as he spoke to the press for about two minutes. Bid...

Frank Destadio Candidate Post 4 Peachtree City

My Plan: o I plan on working right from the beginning to make sure developers design their projects within our City’s design standards. I will stop them from making changes in our Design Standards. o I will stop developers from obtaining variances in our zoning ordinances. I will continue to disallow the rezoning of our precious industrial zones to residential zones for more housing. o I strongly support the Village Concept and as such I would not agree with more annexation without a clearer understanding of the impacts to City and our way of life. o Lastly, I am firmly opposed to opening TDK Blvd. It will not help with the traffic and will only further impact the terrible congestion within our City infrastructure. > My Past Experience: o Peachtree City Planning Commission 2010-2021.
