Biden has turned border into big Area 51-like secret

- The Washington Times

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is "absolutely committed" to allowing journalists to tour the Border Patrol facilities to see the conditions for housing children. But why the delay? The fact that reporters are prevented at all is a red flag.

Disaster by any name

The Communists and Marxists of the late 1800s and early 1900s pitted the working class against the elite to divide the country and create divisions that allowed them to prevail. Today that doesn't work. So in order to create hatred and division, today's left uses race. Either way, the results will be the same.

Gauging coronavirus consequences

Achievement is rewarded in normal times, but these are not normal times. The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan doles out federal dollars to both success and failure for performance during the long pandemic year.

The curious case of India

COVID-19 cases in India have hit a five-month high. Not to panic. India's recovery rate is 95% (the highest in the world) and the death rate is 161 per million, one of the lowest in the world.

Jeff Bezos, his Washington Post and the 'Hitler Diaries'

When Lee Iacocca took over Chrysler, he appeared in commercials to admit mistakes and promise the company had changed. It shouldn't be too much to expect Jeff Bezos to restore faith in journalism that way.
