Ron DeSantis Is Right about School Quarantines

Ron DeSantis is nothing if not a lightning rod for attention to his COVID policies, which have often gone his own way based on his own analysis of the science, the liberty interests of Floridians, and (as is true of everyone in power) the politics.

Don’t Fall For The FBI’s “Civil War” Trap

Right-wingers of all stripes can never get enough of talking about the supposed civil war on the horizon. This topic got a boost in attention over the last month following America’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. Some saw the Taliban’s defeat of the Globalist American Empire as a sign fed-up patriots can do the same in Appalachia. Comedian Sarah Silverman further sparked discussion last week on civil war after she called for a national divorce.

Many conservatives praised her for sharing this bold idea with the masses. They believe a peaceful national divorce is the only realistic option going forward.

Why Pick a Fight Over Iron Dome Funding Now?

The House Democratic progressive “Squad” effort to eliminate U.S. assistance for Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system seemed to come out of nowhere. Israel and the Palestinians haven’t been in the news much, the Iron Dome system was most notably used in May, clearly most Democrats in the House and Senate are just fine with U.S. assistance for a defensive missile system, and the claims that this is a good idea in the name of reducing spending are laughable.
