NCAA admits transgenders aren't the same

After 11 years of allowing transgenders to compete as women in sports, the NCAA finally has acknowledged that this gives former men an advantage. Swimmer Lia Thomas, who fancies herself as the Jackie Robinson of transgenders has shown the folly of the old rule.

Midterm blowout: Republicans have a 13-point lead

The Trafalgar Group is very accurate in its polling. It found 55.7% of voters prefer a Republican candidate in the upcoming congressional races. 42.2% prefer a Democrat.

Let me put that in perspective.

Obamanaut on price controls: "Just stop. Seriously"

The University of Chicago asked a bunch of economists about inflation and I do not think the university received the answers it was looking for.

Highlights of the News

A moment of silence, please, on the first anniversary of the end of our constitutional republic. The installation of Biden behind the Resolute Desk was evil. His disastrous first year is the price we pay.

NPR lies. Media side with the liars

Associate Justices Sotomayor and Gorsuch sit beside one another in the courtroom. She no longer attends hearings in person because of her fear of covid. Given her age and comorbidities, I can understand that.

The press cannot.

Nina Totenberg, 78, of NPR reported, "Gorsuch didn't mask despite Sotomayor's covid worries, leading her to telework."

The Monkees are in charge

The death of Monkee Michael Nesmith last month at 78 was another reminder that the 1960s ended a long, long time ago. He was old. 

But he was not as old as the president (79) or the House speaker (81) or the House majority leader (82) or the House majority whip (81).

Trump vs. DeSantis explained

The New York Times and other derelicts in the media are pushing the narrative that Trump is feuding with DeSantis. They are wrong because they cannot add one and one and come up with two.

An Indian graveyard with no bodies

Canadian politics are outside my ken but occasionally the Land of Justin Castreau does something bizarre enough to amuse me. So it goes with the story CNN billed last June 1 as, "'Unthinkable' discovery in Canada as remains of 215 children found buried near residential school."

Bannon predicts a 100-seat gain

Gallup reported that 49% of Americans identified as Democrats and 40% as Republicans when 2021 began.

When the year ended, 42% were Democrats and 47% were Republicans -- a 14 point swing. Gallup never saw such a shift in the 31 years it has tracked party affiliation.

To save newspapers, dump the editorial page

The Salt Lake Tribune's editorial writers tried their darnedest last week to shock the public with an editorial calling on the governor to send the Utah National Guard to corral The Unvaccinated!

19% of Biden voters disapprove of Biden

81 million ballots cannot be wrong.

Can they?

Democrats have an albatross named Biden

Maybe we should start calling him President Al B. Tross because Democrats now realize Biden is dangling from their necks, holding them down. They would love to cut him loose ahead of this year's congressional elections.

The New York Times was polite about it, headlining its report, "Frustrated Democrats Call for ‘Reset’ Ahead of Midterm Elections."

Biden meant every nasty word he said

Biden's trip to the crypt of Martin Luther King in Atlanta was ghoulish as he conjured up the ghost of the assassinated civil rights leader to pass a Democrat bill to federalize elections.

Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: CNN reported, "First on CNN: U.S. intelligence indicates Russia preparing operation to justify invasion of Ukraine."
