Against the destructive policies of President Joe Biden, a torrent of spending that has brought back memories of the 1970s — surging inflation as the middle class are taxed their savings at the grocery store and then scenes of American defeat overseas in Afghanistan that stranded hundreds of Americans and thousands of American allies, who now suffer under the tyranny of the Taliban.Read More

Two subordinates of Dr. Anthony Fauci raised concerns in May 2016 that a taxpayer-funded grant may include gain-of-function experiments on bat coronaviruses at a Wuhan lab, but dropped the issue after nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance downplayed the concerns, documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told her Democratic colleagues that she wanted to see Trump “in prison.” Actor Robert De Niro said “F–k Trump” live on national television at the Tony Awards.

These frequent expressions of irreverence and vulgarity from the Left not only were common but were celebrated when leveled at President Trump. After Biden was announced victor in the 2020 presidential election, comedian Kathy Griffin reposted the infamous photo of her holding a replica of Trump’s bloody severed head—a graphic image that had previously brought her career to a screeching halt when it was first published in 2017.Read More
