I wonder if Hunter Biden will sue Elon Musk for invasion of privacy?

I’m not a privacy law expert, so I’m not sure. All I can say is there’s a common law tort called “invasion of privacy” that allows “an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into their private affairs, discloses their priv[...]

Fox says Biden is too pro-Christmas!

For years, Fox Network’s hatemongers accused Democrats of waging a “War on Christmas.” That was always crazy, but it got people riled up, which is why they did it. Now Fox host Laura Ingraham is standing that meme on its head by complaining Biden is too Christmas-y. Read story here[...]

Voters’ memo to Republicans

David Frum, ex-Bush speechwriter (bio here), is asking no one in particular, “Can conservatives learn?” From the 2022 midterms, he means. It’s a serious question. He says, “Through the Trump years, the Republican Party has organized itself as an anti-learning entity. Unwelcom[...]

Biden will be impeached, so why is he smiling?

The GOP is still expected to narrowly win House control, and the smaller their ever-shrinking margin, the more likely Biden will be impeached. That’s because Kevin McCarthy will need GOP extremists’ votes to become speaker, and that’s the price they’ll exact (see story here).[...]

What a stupid idea!

Publishing — whether print or pixels — is a business, and needs readers, so they create crime waves, do stories on politicians (the more obnoxious, the better), and run pieces by pundits (the more idiotic, the better). I do it, too, by leaving up Steve’s utterly ridiculous satirica[...]

Biden’s political theater on gas prices

Biden is threatening “to pursue higher taxes on oil company profits if industry giants do not work to cut gas prices,” CNBC reported on Monday, October 31, 2022 (read story here). This is political theater, nothing more, to make it look like he’s fighting high gas prices. It lacks [...]

A GOP House will mean chaos

Voters are understandably unhappy about inflation and gas prices, but electing a GOP House majority won’t solve those problems, and would unleash chaos. The Democrats probably would fare better in pre-election polling if Biden were popular, and I would argue he deserves to be more popular than[...]

Progressives stumble on Ukraine

The House progressive caucus, led by Rep. Primala Jayapal (D-WA), released a well-meaning but awkward letter urging Biden to pursue a diplomatic solution to the Ukraine war on Monday, October 24, 2022. Within 24 hours, they retracted and disavowed it (see story here). As described by The Hill here, [...]

Do GOP lawsuits against student debt relief have a chance?

“A Wisconsin taxpayers group has asked the Supreme Court to step in on an emergency basis and temporarily block the Biden administration’s student loan forgiveness program from taking effect,” CNN reported on Wednesday, October 19, 2022. Taxpayers usually don’t have standing t[...]
