The Press Is Infrastructure for Biden :: 04/14/2021

Sen. John Cornyn came under blistering attack from Washington Post scribe Aaron Blake for having wondered whether President Joe Biden is really in charge, since he's kept an extremely low profile with the press.

Gun Control Activist Apparently Confused About Job Of Senators :: 04/12/2021

Okay, to be fair, I think Fred Guttenberg knows exactly what the job of senators is and who they represent. He also knows that without Joe Manchin agreeing to nuke the filibuster, the type of gun control laws that Guttenberg wants to subject Americans to aren’t going to happen, so his best argument is to try to name-and-shame Manchin into acting. So, on Friday, that’s exactly what Guttenberg did, appearing on CNN to argue that Manchin doesn’t actually represent the people who voted for him, but instead represents “the nation”.

Biden's Many False Claims on Gun Violence :: 04/09/2021

President Biden’s press conference on guns was filled with inaccuracies and false claims. Ironically, during the campaign last year, Biden disparaged the use of executive orders, “if you can’t get the votes … you can’t [legislate] by executive order unless you’re a dictator.
