ERICKSON: Good news for Joe Biden

ERICKSON: Good news for Joe Biden

More Americans have died from COVID-19 during the Biden administration than during the Trump administration. That is not the good news for President Joe Biden. Former President Donald Trump initiated Operation Warp Speed. We had Democrats casting aspersions on the efficacy of a would-be and supposedly rushed vaccine. We finally got the vaccine at the end of the Trump administration. The moment Biden became president, Trump voters cast aspersions on the vaccine and the Democrats bullied anyone skeptical of it. People still died. The delta variant has upended lives and taken loved ones; it has sent progressives cowering in fear…

HUDSON: Biden, media have moved past Afghan chaos, but I won’t

HUDSON: Biden, media have moved past Afghan chaos, but I won’t

It’s been over one month since President Joe Biden fully withdrew our troops from Afghanistan on Aug. 31, 2021. More than five weeks later, my office is still working with American citizens, residents and allies who have been left behind in the country now fully controlled by the Taliban. President Biden’s withdrawal was completely botched, culminating in the tragic loss of 13 of our brave servicemembers, including SSG Ryan Knauss from Fort Bragg. Just last week, we learned the suicide bomber behind that deadly attack was a former prisoner released after the president made the premature decision to abandon Bagram…

GINGRICH: Youngkin’s parents vs. McAuliffe’s union bosses

GINGRICH: Youngkin’s parents vs. McAuliffe’s union bosses

The Virginia governor’s race may be developing into an argument with a clear choice that has real implications for campaigns across the country in 2022. Tuesday night’s debate clarified the dramatic gap between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe. It is clear: Youngkin stands with parents who care about their children’s education, and McAuliffe stands with the union bosses who want total control of our lives. During the debate, McAuliffe made what may be an election-collapsing mistake. He spoke honestly about the degree to which he would exclude parents from their children’s educations. Consider this exchange: Republican Youngkin: “I…

HUDSON: Democrats’ ludicrous claim that most expensive bill in history will cost $0

HUDSON: Democrats’ ludicrous claim that most expensive bill in history will cost $0

Freedom is under attack. Liberal politicians in Washington think they know what’s best for you when it comes to your health care, what your children are learning in school, what kind of car you should drive, and how you spend the money in your bank account. Their reckless spending has already led to skyrocketing inflation. Unfortunately, Washington Democrats are doing everything they can to advance trillions more in government spending and new taxes that will transform our society and only make inflation worse. Last week, Democrats worked to advance their $3,5000,000,000,000 infrastructure bill. Only 10% of this bill goes to…

GINGRICH: Biden’s border disaster

GINGRICH: Biden’s border disaster

As President Joe Biden vacationed at Rehoboth Beach, the disaster at the U.S. southern border continued to metastasize. Anyone who has seen pictures of thousands of people crossing the Rio Grande en masse knows the administration has achieved complete failure. Anyone who has seen the overhead drone footage of more than 12,000 people gathered under one bridge in South Texas knows that massive, historic incompetence is being allowed to flourish. At the same time, it’s clear that — despite all the Big Government Socialists in Biden’s party who complain about America — we remain the one country people desperately try…

HUDSON: Reagan’s warnings on inflation still ring true

HUDSON: Reagan’s warnings on inflation still ring true

“A President’s greatest responsibility is to protect all our people from enemies, foreign and domestic. Here at home the worst enemy we face is economic — the creeping erosion of the American way of life and the American dream that has resulted in today’s tragedy of economic stagnation and unemployment.” President Ronald Reagan said these words in 1982. However, they ring as true today as ever before. As the crisis on our southern border worsens and inflation reaches new highs, last week Washington liberals ignored these problems and continued their reckless spending spree. The House passed legislation which would once…

HILL: ‘Inflation is our friend!’

HILL: ‘Inflation is our friend!’

Dan Aykroyd of “Saturday Night Live” had a memorable spoof of President Jimmy Carter’s anti-inflation speech in 1978, where he was ‘quoted’ as saying: “Inflation is our friend. In the year 2000, if current trends continue, the average blue-collar annual wage in this country will be $568,000. Think what this inflated world of the future will mean — most Americans will be millionaires. Everyone will feel like a bigshot. “Wouldn’t you like to own a $4,000 suit, and smoke a $75 cigar, drive a $600,000 car? I know I would!” That may have sounded funny in 1978 when inflation seemed…
