Citizen Tom

Here is the first in a series of questions. First, I will throw up a question for Liberal Democrats. Then I will throw up an approximation of the same question for Conservative Republicans. In that case I will strive to adopt the viewpoint of a Liberal Democrat. The idea is to encourage those who read this blog to examine their assumptions about their own beliefs and the beliefs of others.

The first question is for Liberal Democrats, and there is a good reason for that. If you are a Liberal Democrat, I would like to know how you would phrase this question and future questions for Liberal Democrats so I can pose an approximation of the question for Conservative Republicans. I am not a Liberal Democrat, and I want to make certain that Liberal Democrats think the questions I pose for Conservative Republicans are just as challenging as those I…

CDC Reset

PA Pundits International

By Gary Bauer ~

Even after Dr. Walensky’s “mea culpa,” the CDC is still pushing jabs on toddlers.

After several years of bungling, Centers of Disease Control (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky announced Wednesday that her agency needs a reset. In an email to CDC employees, Walensky wrote, “For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for COVID-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations.”

That’s putting it mildly. You failed miserably!

Walensky says she wants to reform and reorganize the agency. Consider me skeptical. The Swamp isn’t known for reforming itself.

Throughout the pandemic, it seemed that the CDC’s main priority was preventing communist China from being blamed for the virus. And that wasn’t the only debate they shut down. In their persistent demand to “follow the science,” they silenced other scientists who questioned their extreme tactics.

We knew before the pandemic…

Dems’ Deceptive Legislation Name Game

PA Pundits International

By Thomas Gallatin ~

Democrats have a long history of lying to the American people via their dubiously named pieces of legislation.

What’s in a name? Well, when it comes from Democrat lawmakers, the answer would be everything, or nothing. Everything in that the names Democrats affix to their significant pieces of legislation are designed to sell them to the American people, and nothing when it comes to what’s actually in these bills related to the name.

Like a slick, fast-talking used car salesman, Democrats name their bills in order to deceive rather than inform the American public as to what their legislation actually does. The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act is just the latest example, albeit one of the more egregious, of the Democrats’ name game.

The bill is essentially a slimmed-down version of Joe Biden’s Build Back Better tax-and-spend boondoggle. That bill failed to pass, so what did…

NY Times Mocks ‘Right-Wing Fury At I.R.S. Overhaul,’ ‘Unfounded Conspiracy Theories’

PA Pundits International

By Clay Waters ~

The New York Times’ Alan Rappeport and Tiffany Hsu devoted 1,500 words to dismissing conservative concerns over potential IRS overreach, after news the agency is hiring 87,000 new agents, at least some of whom will carry firearms. The headline on the front of the Business section Friday read “Right-Wing Fury at I.R.S. Overhaul.” The online headline was more specific: “More Money for I.R.S. Spurs Conspiracy Theories of ‘Shadow Army.’

Typically, conservative concerns and predictions were dismissed by the paper as “conspiracy theories.” The Times has a history of bolstering the IRS and catching GOP tax cheats, in the name of fighting income inequality. As for empathy for taxpayers unfairly victimized by overzealous IRS audits? Never a priority.

It has been called President Biden’s “shadow army,” described as a strike force to shake down small businesses with assault rifles and likened to a militia of auditors on…

How Bad Is Abortion For Dems?

The Lone Cactus

In a word, terrible. First of all, there is a HUGE push to use abortion as a campaign issue in the midterms. We’re seeing it here in Arizona, where two separate PACs and Democrat Senator, Mark Kelly are hammering away at Republican challenger, Blake Masters for being pro-life.

They must not have gotten the memo.

Abortion, according to McLaughin & Associates is only tied for 8th in a list of campaign issues that are important to Americans. It’s got a whopping 5% who list it as the top issue, tying it with Honesty and Integrity, and Affordable Healthcare. Only 9% of Democrats listed it as the top issue, compared to 2% of Republicans and 3% of Independents.

But you never would have gathered that by the millions of ads we’re watching out here in the desert! You’d think there was no inflation and gas prices were 15 cents a gallon!…
