Jack Smith, Clinton's DOJ Hit Man, Comes After Trump

 When Bruce Wasserstein, a billionaire backer of the Clintons, provided a $25 million donation to Harvard Law, future Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, then serving as dean, welcomed it. The gift built on the Wasserstein Fellows Program already established at Harvard Law which brought “outstanding public interest lawyers” to Harvard and provided them stipends of up to $24,000 to meet with and influence students toward social justice at the prestigious law school. When Jack Smith became a Wasserstein Fellow, even while, unironically, serving as head of the Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, seemingly soliciting and accepting a grant funded by a leftist billionaire (but who watches the integrity of the head of the Public Integrity Section) he joined a list of leftist activist lawyers working for the ACLU, Earthjustice, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Soros’ Open Society, Catholic Charities and the UN. The mission of the Wasserstein Fellows was to gather “a divers

The Bureaucracy’s Democrat Majority Made America a One-Party Government

When former President Trump, Gov. DeSantis, and Senator Ted Cruz, among others, endorsed rolling back the power of bureaucrats and their administrative state, Democrats panicked. Senator Dianne Feinstein and Hillary's former running mate, Senator Tim Kaine, introduced a countermeasure which they called, "Preventing a Patronage System Act" according to Kaine, to "protect the merit-based hiring system for our federal workforce". Media editorialists claimed that making it easier to get rid of federal employees would bring back patronage or the spoils system. The problem is that patronage never left. We have spent generations living under a permanent patronage system. The spoils system, as bad as it was, kept one party from permanently packing its supporters into the government. Removing it just meant that the Democrats have permanently packed the federal bureaucracy. That’s how America became a one-party government at the federal level in Washington D.C. Politicia

How Obama’s Big Economic Lie Caused Our Inflation Crisis

Conspiracy theories and lies have a unique power to reshape the human mind. The things that we believe, even when we initially know that they’re a convenient rationalization, become a part of us. And eventually we come to build our entire worldview around a lie that we told long ago. That’s the story of Russiagate, a bizarre conspiracy theory invented by the Clinton campaign and allies in the Obama administration that virtually every Democrat now believes is true. And it’s quite likely that Hillary Clinton, whose people made it up, also came to believe it’s true. It’s also the story of the inflation crisis. To understand how we got here, it helps to remember the last time a Democrat took over the White House during a troubled time with a mandate to save the economy. Time Magazine clumsily photoshopped him into a picture of FDR on its cover. The messianic ecstasy however soon gave way to frustration because Obama’s economic triumph never arrived. The misnamed Recovery Act was a corrupt

Being Thankful for the Left

 When we celebrate Thanksgiving, after being thankful for family and friends, for health and comfort, for food and shelter; we shouldn't forget to be thankful for the left. There is no light without darkness and without evil, the good often fails to find their own voice. It is in the presence of slavery that we remember the worth of freedom. Men and nations are forged in war; not only the war of shell and shot, but the war of ideas. War teaches us to fight for what we have. Wars of ideas teach us to stand up for what we believe. It is because conservatives are basically hopeful and confident that we are also prone to extremes of despair. Too many us were shocked at the decline of our society because of our great confidence in it. The faith that conservatives have in America makes them vulnerable to being crushed by the latest victory of the left.  I have seen far too much despair and defeatism, too many comments that suggest there is no hope for America and the only thing left to d

Spielberg Has Become Biden

‘The Fabelmans’, Steven Spielberg’s latest movie, is a moving and touching tribute to himself. The movie exists because Spielberg, like Joe Biden, has stuck around long enough to become an institution. Despite recent bombs like a woke West Side Story remake, Hollywood is willing to subsidize Spielberg much as the Democrats prop up Joe Biden, because he maintains the fiction that the industry represents something more than a cynical power and money grab. And Spielberg, with Bidenesque levels of bad judgment, decided that what he wanted to do was film a mawkish coming of age story that had been done a million times before. The sensitive boy, drawn to his mother, misunderstood by his father, who pursues his dream of writing novels or making movies until he succeeds enough to be able to tell the story of his own preciousness is a staple of literary and cinematic industries trapped in a narcissistic love affair with themselves. ‘The Fabelmans’ is formally dedicated to Spielberg’s parents, b

Biden Prints Money for the Taliban

After being described as “partners” by the Biden administration, the Taliban announced that they’re bringing back sharia punishments by chopping off hands and stoning their victims. Last year, the Biden administration had praised the Taliban’s “openness” to women’s rights. This development puts the nail in the coffin of claims by Biden administration figures that the Jihadist organization had changed into a kinder, gentler Taliban. But the media has conveniently ignored revelations of the close collaboration between the administration and the Taliban. Front Page Magazine was one of the few conservative publications that exposed the over $1.1 billion in aid directed by the administration after the Taliban takeover, the special licenses issued by the Biden administration authorizing financial transactions with the Taliban and Al Qaeda’s Haqqani Network to distribute that aid, and the billions stolen from 9/11 families for the Taliban. The Biden administration has been stonewalling

Obama Goes Jussie Smollett With a Fake Noose

The Obama Presidential Center is only slightly less popular in Chicago than a rat with syphilis, a gang member doing a drive-by or Mayor Lori Lightfoot (ranked in reverse order of unpopularity). The vanity memorial to the third worst president in American history has been underway for eight years. Local residents have fought it in court and community organizers have protested against it, demanding that the Messiah of Hope and Change buy them off. “Obama himself was a bridge between communities, and this presidential center will be as well,” David Axelrod claimed. Instead, like Obama himself, the Obama Center divided everyone. Black opponents call white supporters racists and black supporters call white opponents racists. Truly, a wonderful reminder of the way that Obama always managed to bring us together. Locals complain about the traffic, the noise and worry that black people will lose their homes. Others wonder why anyone actually needs a billion dollar monument to a retired politic

Voters Aren’t Choosing Dems, Dems Are Choosing Voters

The people had squandered the confidence of the government and could only win it back by redoubled work. Would it not in that case be simpler for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?” —The Solution, 1953 To understand how we got here, we need to begin with the founding premise of America, the one that motivated former British subjects to take up arms against a king, that the people had the right to choose their governments. Now the divine right of kings has given way to the radical right of leftists to take power from the people in the name of the people. Unable to directly coerce voters, they instead exploited loopholes and weaknesses in the system to reinvent who the people were. Democrats began by choosing a new electorate, one that was strategically defined by Senator Ted Kennedy and others as being more demographically friendly to its political machines. Into the urban political machines that had begun to lose their old immigrant bases as the Irish, Italian and

Using Military Wokeness to Justify Affirmative Action

The Supreme Court may be on the verge of ending the last vestige of systemic racism. Affirmative action faces its acid test in Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina. At stake is the system of racial discrimination imposed on Asian and white students by Harvard and the University of North Carolina. How could the Biden administration possibly justify racial discrimination in college admissions? National security. In the Biden era, a woke military brass insists that everything is national security, from critical race theory to abortion , except actually winning wars. Letting colleges racially discriminate against Asian and white students is “vitally important to our nation’s military,” according to Biden’s Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar. “Our armed forces know from hard experience that when we do not have a diverse officer corps that is broadly reflective of a diverse fighting force, our strength and cohesion and military readiness suffer. So it is a critical

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Accuses 75% of Chicago of Being Sexist Racists

With 77 people shot last week, it’s another pleasantly murderous autumn week in Chiraq. Mayor Lori Lightfoot got her $16 billion budget with its focus on ‘equity’ passed. By equity, Lightfoot meant giving herself a maximum 5% raise. Aldermen, or as the newly woke Windy City calls them, Alderpeople, got a 9% raise. It is unlikely that Lori will ever see a dime of the pay hikes for her $216,210 salary because they’re due to kick in by 2024. No one thinks Lightfoot will be in office by then except the unions still funding her campaign which managed to burn through $607,449 in campaign funds without even running any ads. It’s another achievement in an administration filled with them. Where is the money going? Who knows. It’s Chicago. Everyone wants a nibble and a political operation has got a lot of mouths to feed. But everyone knows where her numbers are going. Last year, Chicago’s failed racist mayor had a 26% approval rating. Up from 16%. Only 5% strongly approved. 50% strongly disappro
