Ron DeSantis, Real Presidential Firepower
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced he's in.
He's running for president.
I caught DeSantis' remarks in Orlando at the annual meeting of the National Religious Broadcasters the day before he formally announced.

President John F. Kennedy signed the proclamation, in 1962, designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day, and establishing the week in which this occurs as National Police ...Read more
Why Doesn't Drowning in Debt Bother Biden?
The most perplexing thing about President Joe Biden's stance on the debt ceiling issue is that the staggering national debt does not seem to bother him.
In remarks Biden made the other day, he noted that the national debt has "accumulated over 200 years." And he also noted the debt increased under President Donald Trump.
But the president's ...Read more

Tim Scott and American Exceptionalism
Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina has announced the formation of an exploratory committee for his candidacy for president.
You may have noticed that Scott is Black. We may ask, in this woke age of ours, the extent to which this matters in his candidacy.
I think it does matter, which requires some explanation given that I am ...Read more

A Nation Committing Suicide
Historian Arnold Toynbee observed "an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide."
It's hard not to think about this reading the results of the latest Wall Street Journal-NORC poll, appearing under the headline "America Pulls Back From Values That Once Defined It."
Only 38% of Americans now say patriotism is "very ...Read more
Biden's Job Is Running US, Not Israel
Widely reported in the press is that President Joe Biden called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express his concern about judicial reforms that are currently being considered in Israel.
We must wonder why Biden, who demonstrably cannot run our own country, feels behooved to tell others, particularly one as successful as Israel, how...Read more
