Biden's Address, Lockdowns vs. Freedom, Extremism On Display

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer: President Biden addressed the nation last night on the first anniversary of the pandemic lockdowns. His remarks were meant to be optimistic and soothing. You could be forgiven if you missed the fact that it was a viciously partisan speech.

For whatever reason, Joe Biden just can't acknowledge Donald Trump's success in producing the COVID vaccines. The only reason Biden could offer any hope at all is because Donald Trump produced the vaccines in record time, which many experts said was impossible.

Trump pushed the major drug companies hard. He ordered the bureaucrats to cut the red tape. He launched Operation Warp Speed to get it done ASAP. And Trump got it done! Even some liberal critics have suggested that the vaccines could reasonably be called the "Trump vaccines."

But Biden gave the impression that because he won the election, the American people now have vaccines. All he did was reorder more Trump vaccines, which any president would have done.

Biden also bragged that we are on track to exceed his pledge of 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days, or one million vaccinations a day.

Well, here's a fact check you won't get from the liberal media: No one said we couldn't do a million vaccinations a day. Donald Trump was already doing that when he left office. Biden underpromised and now claims to be overperforming!

If Joe Biden truly was the unifier he claims to be, it shouldn't have been so hard for him to say, "Donald Trump and I disagree on a lot. But I thank him for the vaccines that were already being distributed and mass produced by the time I took office."

Here's something else Biden didn't say last night. While describing the wreckage caused by the virus, he lamented that our children have missed a year of school.

That was the moment for the president to say, "To my friends in the teachers unions and our big city mayors: Stop playing politics with our children's education. Stop standing in the schoolhouse door! Open our schools now!"

With each passing day, it seems increasingly unlikely that Biden will run for reelection. But he was apparently too afraid to make the teachers unions mad, so he didn't say anything.

Lockdowns vs. Freedom
There was another deeply disturbing theme in Biden's speech last night, and I hope it wasn't lost on the American people. Biden promised that every adult who wants a vaccine will be able to sign up for one by May 1st.

He said, "We will issue guidance on what you can and cannot do when fully vaccinated." He also threatened to "reinstate restrictions," adding that we can't reopen the country until we defeat the virus.

Well, many states have already reopened. More are relaxing restrictions every day. Between vaccinations and the number of people who have had the virus and recovered, even CNN says we're well on the way to herd immunity.

Yet, Biden is threatening more restrictions?

But he did dangle this carrot: If we all do exactly what Uncle Joe tells us, maybe, just maybe he will let us out of our homes to celebrate Independence Day. In small groups only, of course.

I think Joe forgot he that was president of the United States for a moment, and thought he was president of communist China.

He has no authority to tell us what we can and cannot do. We do not need permission or guidelines from any president to have family and friends over to our homes for anything we choose as free people.

I don't know what is in his confused mind. But here's a guess: I suspect he's already signaling that there won't be a big July 4th celebration in Washington, D.C.

Now why wouldn't he want hundreds of thousands of people celebrating America during his first year in office?

Perhaps Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are afraid a pro-Trump, America First rally will break out. Perhaps they know their far-left base really doesn't want to celebrate America at all.

Extremism On Display
When Barack Obama talked about "fundamentally transforming America," that wasn't just an applause line. The left is serious. And its radical agenda has been on full display in recent days.

As we have previously reported, the COVID relief bill was stuffed full of left-wing garbage like reparations, cash for criminals, union bailouts and tax increases.

But that's not all. The left is pushing legislation to radically rewrite election rules, restrict religious liberty, grant a massive amnesty and limit our Second Amendment rights.

In normal times, most of this extreme legislation would be dead-on-arrival in the Senate because of the filibuster. That rule requires at least 60 votes for most legislation to pass. But the filibuster is in growing danger.

Majority Leader Schumer is vowing to put gun control legislation on the Senate floor no matter what.

Sen. Joe Manchin, perhaps the only "moderate Democrat" left in the Senate, is beginning to play rhetorical games with his previous defense of the filibuster.

Sen Tim Kaine put a racially tinged spin on it, saying there would be a "moment of reckoning" if Republicans put "rules above rights" and filibuster H.R. 1, Nancy Pelosi's nationalization of all election laws.

I would just remind Sen. Kaine that it was Democrats who filibustered civil rights legislation for many years. (By the way, when are we going to rename the Russell Senate Office Building?)

In coming days, the left will attempt to advance various items in its extreme agenda. When they do, there will be a full-throated call from the media and every progressive politician that the filibuster is a relic of racism, and is being used again to thwart social justice.

Don't buy it. It's just another example of how the left is willing to bend any norm and break any rule necessary to obtain power and control your life.

What's really happening is that the left is attempting to fundamentally transform America.

Yes, my friends, the culture war is very real, and it is being aggressively waged by the left, forcing its values on the rest of us, and redefining America in the process.

Goodbye, Luis
Christendom lost a giant of the faith this week. Evangelist and Christian apologist Luis Palau died yesterday after a long battle with lung cancer.

Like Billy Graham's crusades, Palau was well-known for drawing huge crowds all over the world. In fact, he once served as a Spanish translator for Graham, and the two men were life-long friends.

For more than 60 years, he preached the Good News of the Gospel in more than 80 countries. He authored dozens of books, and his radio broadcasts were heard by millions of people in 48 countries.

As Luis once said of his work, "I have no regrets in pouring out my years . . . for the sake of the Good News. If I was given a thousand lifetimes, I would dedicate them all to the same calling."

His was certainly a life well lived, and I know Luis has been welcomed home by our Lord to the words we all yearn to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Please join Carol and me in praying for Luis's wife, Patricia, and his sons, Kevin, Keith, Andrew and Stephen.

Sen. Tom Cotton: Amazon’s Ban of Transgender Book Enforces Political Correctness

On the floor of the U.S. Senate, Sen. Tom Cotton,
R-AR,  delivered an impassioned speech Tuesday
that was critical of Amazon’s censorship of a book
that expresses a widely held, commonsense view
of gender. A lightly edited transcript follows.
by Sen. Tom Cotton: Most Americans know that there are two sexes, male and female, and that sex is rooted in science.

Most Americans also know that we ought to treat all people, including those who feel conflicted about their gender, with respect and dignity, without sacrificing the truth in the process.

These beliefs, though, are now under attack from some of the most powerful corporations in the history of the world.

Just a few weeks ago, while House Democrats were passing their far-left Equality Act and the left-wing media [were] busy canceling Dr. Seuss, Amazon quietly erased a book from its online store.

Without notice, without warning, without explanation, that book is “When Harry Became Sally: Responding To the Transgendered Moment” by Ryan Anderson.

Now, Amazon claims it banned this book for violating its brand new policy on hate speech. Of course, that excuse is arbitrary and patently false. Right now, you can go to Amazon on your phone or on your computer and buy copies of actually hateful books.

You can get [Adolf] Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” shipped to your door with free Amazon Prime delivery. You can get the Unabomber manifesto written by a serial killer who murdered three people and maimed 23 others. You can even get “How to Blow Up a Pipeline.” I assume the title speaks for itself.

All those books are available for purchase on Amazon right now, one click away, but Amazon wants you to believe that a conservative book is somehow beyond the pale, unacceptably hateful, literally worse than Hitler, as they like to say.

My office asked Amazon to send us the exact passages from “When Harry Became Sally” that it deemed so hateful that it couldn’t even sell the book on [its] website. Shocking surprise, I know, they never got back to us. That’s because the book doesn’t say anything hateful.

To the contrary, the book makes very clear that we should treat people who feel conflicted about their gender with the same respect and compassion that are due to all people. To quote the author, “We should have abundant compassion and charity and patience with people who feel this form of alienation. But we also need to insist on telling the truth.”

That’s not hate. It’s far from it.

The author’s real offense—his only offense—was telling the truth. He said calmly and compassionately that boys are boys and girls are girls. And the richest man in the world banned his book from his company’s platform.

But, of course, you don’t have to agree with the commonsense, historic understanding of gender in order to acknowledge how dangerous it is for one of the biggest corporations in the history of the world to start banning books.

Because while Amazon’s censorship may start with conservative views, it could easily mutate to censor other views that offend [owner] Jeff Bezos and his bottom line.

Perhaps, Amazon will come after union organizers next, since they’re trying to bust up a union election in Alabama. Or maybe environmental activists, or maybe trust-busters, since so many people are talking about potential antitrust violations in the world of big tech.

And even if … Amazon goes only this far and no farther, the damage to free speech has already been done.

Books like “When Harry Became Sally” won’t get published anymore. Writers who hold unfashionable opinions that just a few days ago were considered basic mainstream views of a large majority of Americans may decide to self-censor and stay silent.

The virtual book-burning may spread to other companies. Maybe Amazon will put a book-burning app on its Kindle, so readers can drag books from its catalog into the virtual bonfire.

Political correctness will only grow more oppressive if its enforcers like Amazon don’t face some consequences for their actions. Amazon, for instance, makes billions of dollars a year, each year, hosting websites and storing data for their government.

Almost all of Amazon’s profit is made in these enterprise services, not in its consumer-facing retail business. And those are our tax dollars flowing to a company that uses its power to censor the beliefs of a large majority of Americans. Perhaps it’s time for lawmakers to reconsider whether these contracts are in the best interests of our country.

Also note that Amazon is the country’s largest bookseller, selling three out of every four e-books in America. Maybe it’s time for lawmakers to evaluate whether Amazon’s practices are consistent with our antitrust laws, or whether antitrust laws need to be updated to address this type of behavior from a monopolistic firm.

We better hurry though, because maybe they will ban all books on antitrust and monopoly behavior before we have a chance to study the question.

I’ll close by quoting from the book that Amazon banned, which predicted the very events we’re witnessing here today:If trans activists succeed in their political agenda, our nation’s children will be indoctrinated in a harmful ideology and some will live by its own lies about their own bodies at great harm to themselves, physically, psychologically, and socially.

Lives will be ruined, but pointing out the damage will be forbidden. Dissent from the transgender worldview will be punished in schools, workplaces, and medical clinics.

Trying to live in accordance with the truth will be made harder.
This is not a fight over hate or bigotry, respect, or compassion. It’s a battle over truth itself. The truth of who we are as human beings and the fundamental freedom to speak that truth or any other truth, without fear.

Throughout our history, Americans have never surrendered to an oppressive tyranny of opinion, whether a majority, or in this case, a small but highly influential minority. And we won’t be cowed into silence today.

We will fight for what’s true. We will fight for the freedom to say it. And no matter what the cultural forces arrayed against us do, we will never back down.

Is a Cold War II with China Inevitable?

by Patrick J. Buchanan: Beijing is not apologetically but proudly Communist. It believes its system has been proven superior in this century. It does not believe in an equality of ideologies, religions or peoples. It openly rejects American democracy as a failed and failing system…

Today, the four premier leaders of The Quad — the U.S., Australia, India and Japan — conduct their first summit, by teleconference.

The Quad, or Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, is an informal strategy forum of the major Indo-Pacific democracies that some wish to see evolve into an Asian NATO to contain China, as NATO contained the Soviet Union for 40 years of Cold War.

Next week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan meet their Chinese counterparts midway between Beijing and Washington — in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Chinese are said to have sought out the two-day meeting since before the inauguration of Biden.

And understandably so. For while the Chinese are hoping for a reset of relations after a troubled last year with the Trump administration, leaders of both U.S. parties — to compensate for decades of congressional indulgence of Beijing —suddenly seem to be on their muscle.

Consider. During the transition, the Biden foreign policy team gave a war guarantee to Manila to fight alongside the Philippines in any clash with the Chinese over disputed rocks and reefs in the South China Sea.

Tokyo was informed that its mutual security treaty with the United States that dates to the 1950s covers the uninhabited Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. But Beijing also claims these islands as her own.

On the eve of his taking office, Blinken said he agreed with Mike Pompeo’s view that China’s brutal repression of the Uighurs in Xinjiang constitutes “genocide” and crimes against humanity. That latter charge is what the Nazis were hanged for at Nuremberg.

How can the United States send athletes to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, if the Chinese are still crushing Hong Kong and committing crimes against humanity in western China that compare to the worst Nazi crimes of World War II?

Testifying before Congress this week, four-star Admiral Phil Davidson, retiring commander of the Indo-Pacific, called for new defensive missiles to protect Guam against Chinese DF-21 and DF-26 missiles. China calls these missiles “Guam killers.”

The admiral also called for the U.S. to develop intermediate-range missiles that can be fired from Guam and allied territory closer to China. Describing the need for offensive missiles to hit Chinese targets, Davidson said, “If I can’t score some runs, I can’t win the game.”

Addressing Taiwan, Davidson said:

“Over the past year, Beijing has pursued a coordinated campaign of diplomatic, information, economic, and — increasingly — military tools to isolate Taipei from the international community and if necessary compel unification with the (Peoples Republic of China.)”

Chinese warplanes have lately flown in formation toward the island of 25 million, which Beijing claims as its national territory — a claim President Nixon seemed to concede in the Shanghai Communique after his Peking summit of 1972.

“Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid,” was how the Biden State Department answered China’s aggressive moves.

If we don’t establish rules of the road for U.S. and Chinese ships and planes in the East and South China Sea and Taiwan strait, how do we indefinitely avoid the kind of collision that could turn into a shooting war?

In this widening and deepening confrontation, China is not backing down. She makes no apologies for the crackdown in Hong Kong or the concentration camps of the Uighurs. She continues to stonewall about how the coronavirus escaped from Wuhan to kill 500,000 Americans and many times that number worldwide.

Meanwhile, Chinese bombers, fighters, warships and patrol boats approach closer and closer to planes, vessels and territory of America and her friends and allies. Nor has China surrendered a rock or reef or shoal in the South or East China Sea.

Last week, Blinken called China the “biggest geopolitical test of the 21st century,” the only country able “to seriously challenge the stable and open international system.”

And in America, whatever your political party, “standing up to China” seems to be a winning posture. But where is all this going? Where does all this end?

Beijing is not apologetically but proudly Communist. It believes its system has been proven superior in this century. It does not believe in an equality of ideologies, religions or peoples. It openly rejects American democracy as a failed and failing system, and rejects any suggestion of American primacy in creating a “rules-based international order.”

And if it continues to grow in real and relative terms for the next two decades as it did in the last two decades — given that China has four times the population of the United States — it could emerge not only as the dominant power in Asia and the Indo-Pacific but in the world.

And what can we do to assure that does not happen — short of a war that could be disaster to us both, as World War II was for the British as well as the Germans.

How do we decouple from a country that provides necessities of national life — such as pharmaceuticals — for our people?

First Woman to Lead House Energy and Commerce Panel Now Fights Left’s Job-Killing Agenda

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is pushing back against what
she sees as the harm in the progressive agenda. 
by Virginia Allen & Lauren Evans: Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., was the first woman ever elected chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. And now, as the ranking Republican on the panel, McMorris Rodgers is pushing back on the far left’s harmful climate policies and fighting to protect American jobs.

McMorris Rodgers joins the show to talk about that and to discuss her concerns with new guidelines on reopening schools from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And she breaks down what you need to know about the fight to defend the Hyde Amendment.

Also on today’s show, we talk with former Cosmopolitan writer Sue Ellen Browder, author of the book “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement” about her journey into and out of progressive feminism.

Also on today’s show, we talk with former Cosmopolitan writer Sue Ellen Browder, author of the book “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement” about her journey into and out of progressive feminism.

And as always, we will crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.” Listen to the podcast below or ready the lightly edited transcript.

Virginia Allen: I am so pleased to be joined by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state as we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month right here at The Daily Signal. Representative, welcome back to the show.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers:
Thank you, Virginia. It’s great to be with you.

Allen: So we are in the middle of celebrating Women’s History Month here at The Daily Signal. And all during this month, we have been talking about women who have broken ground in their own families, in their communities and across America. You’ve been breaking ground for a long time. You started as a young person. You were the first individual in your family to attend college. Would you just share a little bit about what was motivating you even as a teenager to do things that maybe those around you hadn’t done before?

McMorris Rodgers:
Yes. Graduating from college and getting my degree. It was really my parents’ dream for me. For as long as I could remember, every penny that I earned, my mom and dad, they would say, “Now, Cathy, you save that. You saved that money so that you can go to college one day.”

My parents owned an orchard and fruit stand in a small town in Eastern Washington—Kettle Falls, Washington—and I grew up working alongside my brother and my parents selling cherries, peaches, apricots.

I worked my way through McDonald’s and at a housekeeping job, not the easiest or the most fun job—part of the motivation to graduate from college—but I’m so grateful for those experiences. And I learned to appreciate hard work and perseverance and what it takes to imagine what’s possible and then work hard to make it happen. That’s the American dream.

So I would have never imagined back then when I was working my way through college and getting that degree that I would have been elected to Congress, to the House of Representatives, as the 200th woman ever to serve in the House of Representatives. It’s been an amazing journey.

Allen: That’s so special. And thank you for sharing some of that background. It is amazing to see how so many individuals like yourself. I think sometimes we can think of representatives on the Hill as you just sort of rose to this place of power, but you all have lived these incredible lives, and often like yourself, have come really just from those American roots of working hard and then really finding, ‘All right, I can make a difference and I can make an impact.’

And I want to talk about one of the other ways that you have really done that. You have continued to break ground throughout your life and you, not long ago, were named the first woman who was ever elected to chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee. This is the oldest continually standing committee in the House. And of course, you’re now the ranking Republican member on that committee. Would you just share some of your key policy goals as you continue to serve in leadership on this committee?

McMorris Rodgers:
Absolutely. It’s really exciting to lead for the Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. This committee has been around nearly from the very beginning, 1795, and it has a rich history of tackling some of the biggest challenges facing the country. The issues that are at the forefront of this committee are really going to define our future and whether or not America leads and wins the future.

And it’s pretty special to be the first woman to lead for either party on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. I remember soon after when I was named to this position, I was walking on the House floor and I was headed up there to vote, and I bumped into Anna Eshoo, who is a Democrat longtime member on the other side of the aisle, and she gave me this big hug and she said, “Congratulations, Cathy. You’re the first woman to do this.”

Then she turned to Rosa DeLauro, who’s now the chair of the House Appropriations Committee, and she just was like, “Do you know Cathy is the first on ENC?” And so it was a moment when we were celebrating.

And you think it was just a hundred years ago that women gained the right to vote in America and now women are taking on more of these leadership positions.

And as the ranking Republican, as the lead Republican on this committee, my goal is to build upon the strong foundation that has been led in this committee. We have eight new members on the Republican side and they’re all rock stars. They really have a lot to contribute to the team. Some of the issues that are at the forefront of ENC, we’re going to continue to be at the forefront of crushing the virus, rebuilding our economy, ensuring that American leadership is at the forefront and that we continue to be the best place in the world to innovate, to save lives, to lift people out of poverty.

Allen: I love that. I love that you were able to celebrate with your colleagues in that moment of being that first woman elected. That’s so special. Talk a little bit about now how you are working with your Democratic colleagues on that committee as there are a lot of issues that are between parties, there is an agreement.

McMorris Rodgers:
That’s true. This committee has a rich history of doing the hard work, of legislating. It means Republicans and Democrats coming together and really plowing the hard ground necessary to work on legislation, and we get better results when we do that.

And this committee has really led on some of the biggest issues facing the country, whether it’s around energy, energy security, which is so important to our economy, to competitiveness, to our national security, health care, curing diseases, as well as technology.

Unfortunately, this Congress, we’re still at the beginning of this Congress, but Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi seems to be wanting to do it alone. … The Democrats just released their green energy future bill that is focused on eliminating carbon. But what I see is a down payment on the Green New Deal.

It’s a lot more top-down, Washington D.C.-knows-best regulations, and it really is making us more vulnerable to China. It’s a threat to our national and energy security, our grid reliability, energy affordability, our global competitive edge.

So we’re going to continue to highlight why American energy independence is so important, why policies like canceling the Keystone [XL] Pipeline on day one of the Biden administration is so damaging. It is damaging to individuals and families in the middle of a pandemic.

In 2019, this is a fun fact, there were more than 400,000 women working in oil, natural gas, and the petrochemical industries. And this is not the time to be jeopardizing those jobs, especially when so many Americans are facing unemployment.

So what we need to be doing is focusing on how does America lead? How do we make sure that American technology and innovation is winning the future and not start down this path of Washington D.C.-knows-best, Green New Deal-style mandates.

Allen: Well, a critical part of this debate is talking about the impact on real Americans that we’re looking at as these very progressive, climate and energy policies are pushed forward by the left. Really what’s at stake is American jobs, and not just jobs as you say for men, but also for women, correct?

McMorris Rodgers:
That’s so true, 400,000 women that are in the industry. But I would just highlight that the Democrats, their socialist agenda is really focused on policies that are going to make us more dependent upon China. They’re promoting solar and wind and batteries, and look at who’s manufacturing that. Ninety percent of the solar panels are coming from China. Eighty percent of the windmills are coming from China. They control 90% of … the rare earth minerals. And so they’re the ones controlling the battery storage and manufacturing right now.

So in order for America to lead, we need to do it the American way. And that means that be promoting, yes, carbon capture and natural gas and clean coal and hydro power. And that is all part of our clean energy future. That’s where America can lead and export to other countries around the world, rather than making us dependent upon China and costing us jobs in the United States.

Allen: Absolutely. I want to pivot and talk a little bit about another subject that I know is on the minds of many Americans right now and that’s education, getting our kids back to school. Of course, we’re right here at the year marker from really when the pandemic hit and closed everything down. Many kids have still not returned to school.

On Feb. 18, you sent a letter to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rochelle Walensky, expressing concerns over the newly released guidelines for reopening schools. And you said that those guidelines, you saw them actually leading to more school closures instead of reopenings. What is it that concerns you so much about these new CDC school guidelines?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, unfortunately these new CDC guidelines are so restrictive that after a year since the national emergency was put into place, they are going to continue to keep schools from opening.

In Washington state, only 26% of our schools have opened. And just earlier this week, we had four doctors who wrote in USA Today, they were talking about how the CDC misinterpreted their research to draft the school guidance and that the impact of keeping kids locked down at home in isolation is only going to lead to other concerns.

I hear about this in my community. Almost every day, I’m hearing from a parent who is concerned about their kids, that they’re on virtual school but they’re sleeping throughout the day. Or a mental health therapist who was telling me that her caseload has nearly doubled. The number of kids that are in crisis is really frightening to me.

We’re hearing about more kids that are attempting suicides and the suicide rate on the increases. It’s like we have this mental health crisis developing within the pandemic and we need to get our kids back in school.

We can do it in a safe and responsible way. We’ve learned a lot in the last year. We are not where we were a year ago, and I hope that the [Biden] administration will listen, listen to doctors like those that came forward in USA Today. They’re raising this alarm and urging the schools to reopen.

Allen: Did you get a response from Director Walensky after you wrote her that letter?

McMorris Rodgers:
I’m still waiting for that response. I talked to her early on and she said that she wants to open schools, but the guidelines that they’ve put in place are so restrictive right now that I fear schools are not going to be able to reopen.

Allen: Yeah. Why do you think the Biden administration has taken the approach that it has to reopening schools and being so hesitant to do so?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, unfortunately it seems like so much of it is being driven by fear instead of the science, because if you follow the science, we know that the transmission rate among kids is very low. The transmission of COVID-19 between a child and a teacher is very low.

We’ve seen in some of the states that have opened as well as in other countries around the world that the risk or the fear that they are promoting or suggesting may happen, it just isn’t happening.

President Biden, at the beginning, he said he wanted to open schools. And then we heard, well, his goal is one day per week, right? I just would impress upon the Biden administration, the CDC, that every day that goes by that our schools remain closed and that this lockdown and the forced isolation continues, that our kids are falling behind.

They’re falling behind in their schoolwork, but they’re also facing more and more of the anxiety around being at home. The reality of isolation is having a negative impact. The kids that are in crisis continue to increase, and we need to face this like a crisis.

We need to open our schools in a safe and responsible way. The science suggests that we can, and we need to stop making excuses and living in fear and actually get our schools open and do what’s in the best interest of our kids.

Allen: Absolutely. Now I do want to take just a moment to talk about the Hyde Amendment, because that’s something that you have been so on the forefront of defending. For anyone in our audience who’s maybe not familiar with the Hyde Amendment, could you just give a brief explanation of what it is?

McMorris Rodgers:
Sure. The Hyde Amendment is named after Congressman Henry Hyde, who was the champion of this language, this law that says no taxpayer funding will be put toward abortion. So it prohibits the taxpayer funding of abortion.

It’s been the law of the land for over 40 years now in the United States of America. And the large, large majority of Americans do not want to have taxpayer-funded abortions.

Allen: Do you see this as a partisan issue, the Hyde Amendment?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. It has enjoyed the support of even people like President Joe Biden before he was elected president. He had been a strong supporter of the Hyde Amendment.

In this latest COVID relief package, in the $1.9 trillion package, it’s the first time that the Hyde Amendment protections were not included in a COVID relief package.

So we’ve passed four COVID relief packages to date. All of them included the Hyde protections. The Democrats this time decided not to include that. So it means that the funding in this package is not protected by Hyde, which means that taxpayer funding could be used in for funding of abortions.

We’re making the case that this is not an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars, that [the Hyde Amendment] has long enjoyed strong bipartisan support.

And then I would also make the case that science is clear that because of technology today, we can look into the womb. We can watch day by day the development of a life, of a baby.

And even now, doctors can administer life-saving treatment prenatally because of research and therapy. It just reaffirms the miracle of life. So we need to be as a country continuing to celebrate life and all that it means at every stage from conception to death.

Allen: Are you concerned that … there may be a real strong push to repeal the Hyde Amendment, and that we perhaps would see that?

McMorris Rodgers:
I am concerned that this is an indicator as to where Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats intend to go, that this is going to be one of the big fights of this Congress to protect the Hyde Amendment in the appropriations bills, as well as just in general.

And I’ve heard some Democrats say that this is their goal, to remove the Hyde Amendment. So this is one where we need to raise the awareness and make sure that taxpayers and citizens across this country are delivering a strong message to Congress to continue to protect the Hyde Amendment.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., was the first woman ever elected chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. And now, as the ranking Republican on the panel, McMorris Rodgers is pushing back on the far left’s harmful climate policies and fighting to protect American jobs.

McMorris Rodgers joins the show to talk about that and to discuss her concerns with new guidelines on reopening schools from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And she breaks down what you need to know about the fight to defend the Hyde Amendment.

Also on today’s show, we talk with former Cosmopolitan writer Sue Ellen Browder, author of the book “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement” about her journey into and out of progressive feminism.

And as always, we will crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.” Listen to the podcast below or ready the lightly edited transcript.

Virginia Allen: I am so pleased to be joined by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state as we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month right here at The Daily Signal. Representative, welcome back to the show.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers:
Thank you, Virginia. It’s great to be with you.

Allen: So we are in the middle of celebrating Women’s History Month here at The Daily Signal. And all during this month, we have been talking about women who have broken ground in their own families, in their communities and across America. You’ve been breaking ground for a long time. You started as a young person. You were the first individual in your family to attend college. Would you just share a little bit about what was motivating you even as a teenager to do things that maybe those around you hadn’t done before?

McMorris Rodgers:
Yes. Graduating from college and getting my degree. It was really my parents’ dream for me. For as long as I could remember, every penny that I earned, my mom and dad, they would say, “Now, Cathy, you save that. You saved that money so that you can go to college one day.”

My parents owned an orchard and fruit stand in a small town in Eastern Washington—Kettle Falls, Washington—and I grew up working alongside my brother and my parents selling cherries, peaches, apricots.

I worked my way through McDonald’s and at a housekeeping job, not the easiest or the most fun job—part of the motivation to graduate from college—but I’m so grateful for those experiences. And I learned to appreciate hard work and perseverance and what it takes to imagine what’s possible and then work hard to make it happen. That’s the American dream.

So I would have never imagined back then when I was working my way through college and getting that degree that I would have been elected to Congress, to the House of Representatives, as the 200th woman ever to serve in the House of Representatives. It’s been an amazing journey.

Allen: That’s so special. And thank you for sharing some of that background. It is amazing to see how so many individuals like yourself. I think sometimes we can think of representatives on the Hill as you just sort of rose to this place of power, but you all have lived these incredible lives, and often like yourself, have come really just from those American roots of working hard and then really finding, ‘All right, I can make a difference and I can make an impact.’

And I want to talk about one of the other ways that you have really done that. You have continued to break ground throughout your life and you, not long ago, were named the first woman who was ever elected to chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee. This is the oldest continually standing committee in the House. And of course, you’re now the ranking Republican member on that committee. Would you just share some of your key policy goals as you continue to serve in leadership on this committee?

McMorris Rodgers:
Absolutely. It’s really exciting to lead for the Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. This committee has been around nearly from the very beginning, 1795, and it has a rich history of tackling some of the biggest challenges facing the country. The issues that are at the forefront of this committee are really going to define our future and whether or not America leads and wins the future.

And it’s pretty special to be the first woman to lead for either party on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. I remember soon after when I was named to this position, I was walking on the House floor and I was headed up there to vote, and I bumped into Anna Eshoo, who is a Democrat longtime member on the other side of the aisle, and she gave me this big hug and she said, “Congratulations, Cathy. You’re the first woman to do this.”

Then she turned to Rosa DeLauro, who’s now the chair of the House Appropriations Committee, and she just was like, “Do you know Cathy is the first on ENC?” And so it was a moment when we were celebrating.

And you think it was just a hundred years ago that women gained the right to vote in America and now women are taking on more of these leadership positions.

And as the ranking Republican, as the lead Republican on this committee, my goal is to build upon the strong foundation that has been led in this committee. We have eight new members on the Republican side and they’re all rock stars. They really have a lot to contribute to the team. Some of the issues that are at the forefront of ENC, we’re going to continue to be at the forefront of crushing the virus, rebuilding our economy, ensuring that American leadership is at the forefront and that we continue to be the best place in the world to innovate, to save lives, to lift people out of poverty.

Allen: I love that. I love that you were able to celebrate with your colleagues in that moment of being that first woman elected. That’s so special. Talk a little bit about now how you are working with your Democratic colleagues on that committee as there are a lot of issues that are between parties, there is an agreement.

McMorris Rodgers:
That’s true. This committee has a rich history of doing the hard work, of legislating. It means Republicans and Democrats coming together and really plowing the hard ground necessary to work on legislation, and we get better results when we do that.

And this committee has really led on some of the biggest issues facing the country, whether it’s around energy, energy security, which is so important to our economy, to competitiveness, to our national security, health care, curing diseases, as well as technology.

Unfortunately, this Congress, we’re still at the beginning of this Congress, but Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi seems to be wanting to do it alone. … The Democrats just released their green energy future bill that is focused on eliminating carbon. But what I see is a down payment on the Green New Deal.

It’s a lot more top-down, Washington D.C.-knows-best regulations, and it really is making us more vulnerable to China. It’s a threat to our national and energy security, our grid reliability, energy affordability, our global competitive edge.

So we’re going to continue to highlight why American energy independence is so important, why policies like canceling the Keystone [XL] Pipeline on day one of the Biden administration is so damaging. It is damaging to individuals and families in the middle of a pandemic.

In 2019, this is a fun fact, there were more than 400,000 women working in oil, natural gas, and the petrochemical industries. And this is not the time to be jeopardizing those jobs, especially when so many Americans are facing unemployment.

So what we need to be doing is focusing on how does America lead? How do we make sure that American technology and innovation is winning the future and not start down this path of Washington D.C.-knows-best, Green New Deal-style mandates.

Allen: Well, a critical part of this debate is talking about the impact on real Americans that we’re looking at as these very progressive, climate and energy policies are pushed forward by the left. Really what’s at stake is American jobs, and not just jobs as you say for men, but also for women, correct?

McMorris Rodgers:
That’s so true, 400,000 women that are in the industry. But I would just highlight that the Democrats, their socialist agenda is really focused on policies that are going to make us more dependent upon China. They’re promoting solar and wind and batteries, and look at who’s manufacturing that. Ninety percent of the solar panels are coming from China. Eighty percent of the windmills are coming from China. They control 90% of … the rare earth minerals. And so they’re the ones controlling the battery storage and manufacturing right now.

So in order for America to lead, we need to do it the American way. And that means that be promoting, yes, carbon capture and natural gas and clean coal and hydro power. And that is all part of our clean energy future. That’s where America can lead and export to other countries around the world, rather than making us dependent upon China and costing us jobs in the United States.

Allen: Absolutely. I want to pivot and talk a little bit about another subject that I know is on the minds of many Americans right now and that’s education, getting our kids back to school. Of course, we’re right here at the year marker from really when the pandemic hit and closed everything down. Many kids have still not returned to school.

On Feb. 18, you sent a letter to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rochelle Walensky, expressing concerns over the newly released guidelines for reopening schools. And you said that those guidelines, you saw them actually leading to more school closures instead of reopenings. What is it that concerns you so much about these new CDC school guidelines?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, unfortunately these new CDC guidelines are so restrictive that after a year since the national emergency was put into place, they are going to continue to keep schools from opening.

In Washington state, only 26% of our schools have opened. And just earlier this week, we had four doctors who wrote in USA Today, they were talking about how the CDC misinterpreted their research to draft the school guidance and that the impact of keeping kids locked down at home in isolation is only going to lead to other concerns.

I hear about this in my community. Almost every day, I’m hearing from a parent who is concerned about their kids, that they’re on virtual school but they’re sleeping throughout the day. Or a mental health therapist who was telling me that her caseload has nearly doubled. The number of kids that are in crisis is really frightening to me.

We’re hearing about more kids that are attempting suicides and the suicide rate on the increases. It’s like we have this mental health crisis developing within the pandemic and we need to get our kids back in school.

We can do it in a safe and responsible way. We’ve learned a lot in the last year. We are not where we were a year ago, and I hope that the [Biden] administration will listen, listen to doctors like those that came forward in USA Today. They’re raising this alarm and urging the schools to reopen.

Allen: Did you get a response from Director Walensky after you wrote her that letter?

McMorris Rodgers:
I’m still waiting for that response. I talked to her early on and she said that she wants to open schools, but the guidelines that they’ve put in place are so restrictive right now that I fear schools are not going to be able to reopen.

Allen: Yeah. Why do you think the Biden administration has taken the approach that it has to reopening schools and being so hesitant to do so?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, unfortunately it seems like so much of it is being driven by fear instead of the science, because if you follow the science, we know that the transmission rate among kids is very low. The transmission of COVID-19 between a child and a teacher is very low.

We’ve seen in some of the states that have opened as well as in other countries around the world that the risk or the fear that they are promoting or suggesting may happen, it just isn’t happening.

President Biden, at the beginning, he said he wanted to open schools. And then we heard, well, his goal is one day per week, right? I just would impress upon the Biden administration, the CDC, that every day that goes by that our schools remain closed and that this lockdown and the forced isolation continues, that our kids are falling behind.

They’re falling behind in their schoolwork, but they’re also facing more and more of the anxiety around being at home. The reality of isolation is having a negative impact. The kids that are in crisis continue to increase, and we need to face this like a crisis.

We need to open our schools in a safe and responsible way. The science suggests that we can, and we need to stop making excuses and living in fear and actually get our schools open and do what’s in the best interest of our kids.

Allen: Absolutely. Now I do want to take just a moment to talk about the Hyde Amendment, because that’s something that you have been so on the forefront of defending. For anyone in our audience who’s maybe not familiar with the Hyde Amendment, could you just give a brief explanation of what it is?

McMorris Rodgers:
Sure. The Hyde Amendment is named after Congressman Henry Hyde, who was the champion of this language, this law that says no taxpayer funding will be put toward abortion. So it prohibits the taxpayer funding of abortion.

It’s been the law of the land for over 40 years now in the United States of America. And the large, large majority of Americans do not want to have taxpayer-funded abortions.

Allen: Do you see this as a partisan issue, the Hyde Amendment?

McMorris Rodgers:
Well, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. It has enjoyed the support of even people like President Joe Biden before he was elected president. He had been a strong supporter of the Hyde Amendment.

In this latest COVID relief package, in the $1.9 trillion package, it’s the first time that the Hyde Amendment protections were not included in a COVID relief package.

So we’ve passed four COVID relief packages to date. All of them included the Hyde protections. The Democrats this time decided not to include that. So it means that the funding in this package is not protected by Hyde, which means that taxpayer funding could be used in for funding of abortions.

We’re making the case that this is not an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars, that [the Hyde Amendment] has long enjoyed strong bipartisan support.

And then I would also make the case that science is clear that because of technology today, we can look into the womb. We can watch day by day the development of a life, of a baby.

And even now, doctors can administer life-saving treatment prenatally because of research and therapy. It just reaffirms the miracle of life. So we need to be as a country continuing to celebrate life and all that it means at every stage from conception to death.

Allen: Are you concerned that … there may be a real strong push to repeal the Hyde Amendment, and that we perhaps would see that?

McMorris Rodgers:
I am concerned that this is an indicator as to where Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats intend to go, that this is going to be one of the big fights of this Congress to protect the Hyde Amendment in the appropriations bills, as well as just in general.

And I’ve heard some Democrats say that this is their goal, to remove the Hyde Amendment. So this is one where we need to raise the awareness and make sure that taxpayers and citizens across this country are delivering a strong message to Congress to continue to protect the Hyde Amendment.

Allen: Final question before we let you go, we’ll end on a little bit of a lighter note. Throughout this month, as we say it’s Women’s History Month and one of the questions I’ve been asking our guests this month is, if they could go back in time and they could give their 25-year-old, their 30-year-old self one piece of advice, what would that be?

McMorris Rodgers:
I would say, take more risk. Don’t let the fear of the unknown hold you back. I think especially as women, we just need to go out there and be risk-takers, be trailblazers.

It’s really exciting that in this hundredth anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, that we have a record number of conservative Republican women that are elected to Congress. We now have 30, and they are all rock stars and they’re risk-takers.

Allen: I love that. Oh, that’s so good. Sen. Marsha Blackburn said something very, very similar last week. So we have a trend of “Be bold and take risk.” I like it.

McMorris Rodgers:
Absolutely.

Allen: Wonderful. Thank you so much, Representative, for joining us today.

McMorris Rodgers:
Great to be with you. Thank you.

The Progressive Imaginarium

Because the West is a self-critical, affluent, tolerant, and leisurely place, the number of the victimized has grown to far outnumber the vanishing pool of victimizers.
by Victor Davis Hanson: “T-Bone” lives in the progressive Imaginarium.

Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) conjured him up as his fake pal from the ’hood. The “Bone” would now and then materialize to prep the yuppie Booker on his street cred.

“T” was the umbilical cord of authenticity with the underprivileged black community for Booker—the vegetarian, Rhodes scholar, Stanford- and Yale-educated, privileged child of two IBM executives.

“Corn-pop” also resides in the Imaginarium. Good ol’ Joe Biden from Scranton occasionally would summon the “Pop.” Supposedly he was one tough, African American, razor-wielding, gangster that the youthful Mighty Joe Biden won over.

But first, as a lifeguard of an inner-city swimming pool, defiant, and armed with his own 6-feet of chain, Joe told us he taught Pop the meaning of obedience.

In his impromptu séances, Joe has conjured up lots of Imaginarium denizens. Along with Corn Pop, there was the anonymous bully—son of a donut shop owner—whose head Joe slammed down on the counter. The felony? The brute had insulted his sister and the Biden family name.

Never believe that after a half-century in Washington politics, the multimillionaire beltway Biden has gone soft. He’s still the authentic white, working-class brawler. The scion of coal miners, Biden boasted of wanting to take Donald Trump behind the proverbial gym for a trademark Biden whooping.

Jussie Smollett’s alt-white bullies also dwell in the Imaginarium. They were hunting for nonwhite prey with bleach and a noose.

Unfortunately, they picked on the wrong guy and met the knight Jussie in the wee hours of the morning in Chicago’s subzero temperatures.

The diminutive Smollett fought them both off—while still holding his sandwich and using his cell phone.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, checked into the Imaginarium, along with their TV interview host and fellow Montecito mansion-dweller Oprah Winfrey.

The royal couple’s new $15 million home is not far from Oprah’s $90 million estate. Recently in an interview, the two detailed all the racial slights they suffered from the apparently inveterate racist British royal family.

One royal supposedly even inquired about the possible skin tones of their soon-to-be-born, young son Archie. Such were the Torquemada inflicted pains that the hip young royals had to suffer from these Heart of Darkness imperial leftovers!

Oprah sympathized. She, too, had been a victim of systemic racism when a clueless Swiss clerk once declined to show the world’s most famous celebrity a locked away $38,000 crocodile purse.

It was difficult to determine whether Oprah’s gripe hinged on the alleged race-based arrogance of the minimum wage clerk. Or, as Oprah put it, “Obviously ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich.

In the progressive fantasy house, people come and go, like the prep-schooled Smith coed, Oumou Kanoute. She says she was rousted from her lunch, apparently by a working-class privileged janitor, a security guard, and the kitchen help. Supposedly these deplorables could not tolerate the presence of a proud black woman in their midst.

That most of what Kanoute alleged was a demonstrable fantasy earned her a slot in the Imaginarium.

It’s crowded there with Native American tribal elder Elizabeth Warren, Latino Hilaria Baldwin, wife of Alec, black activist Rachel Dolezal, Native American medicine man Ward Churchill—and robust dynamic hands-on president Joe Biden, who has yet to give a press conference or an unscripted talk.

What explains this packed house of left-wing fantasies?

First, a toadying media prefers being woke to being factual and honest. It eagerly hypes any perceived conservative as a clickbait racist, sexist, or homophobe on the slightest of pretexts.

Second, the professional classes and rich are in a dilemma of needing to damn the inequity and nastiness of Western consumer capitalism, which they themselves have mastered.

The woke privileged certainly are not willing to give up their own insatiable appetites that are the fruits of their one percent existence. So they play victims and strain to invent interaction with the authentically poor to remind us of their common-man bona fides—and relieve their guilt.

Three, politicians, academics, media people, and celebrities are not necessarily muscular folk and their soft life bothers them. So now and then they are reinvented as chain-carrying, counter-slamming, Chicago-brawling toughs.

Fourth, race increasingly is divorced from class. So what happens when upward mobility renders old-style class conflict and oppression inert?

The elite victim then turns to race as something that is not so fluid a status as class. A Meghan Markle or Oprah can enjoy being among the most privileged on the planet, and still say they suffer from crocodile-purse racism and royal high-handedness.

So because the West is a self-critical, affluent, tolerant, and leisurely place, the number of the victimized has grown to far outnumber the vanishing pool of victimizers.

And the Imaginarium is now bursting at the seams.

Zero Risk!

by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: Stop trying to create a zero-risk society.

That’s the sensible advice — indeed, the title — of a Reason think-piece by Veronique de Rugy.

Every action has costs, at the very least in opportunities forgone, and all solutions to problems are better expressed as “trade-offs,” as Thomas Sowell put it. But, specific to this historic moment, “we will suffer many tragic effects from the pandemic-induced changes long after lockdowns are lifted,” Ms. de Rugy argues. First, the lockdowns themselves were a bust, “when all costs are considered, such as the short- and long-term health, educational and psychological harms the lockdowns caused, their costs far exceed[ed] their benefits.”

One humungous tragic effect of the pandemic is what she dubs “the utterly insane expansion of federal spending.” Acknowledging that it is now “traditional for the federal government to expand during emergencies,” de Rugy contends that “the size of the response this time around is both unprecedented and unwarranted.”

Well, hardly unprecedented . . . but it was the biggest over-reaction yet, and definitely unwarranted.

I wonder, though, if Veronique de Rugy may not have missed the biggest thing: the quickness with which we accepted a rushed-to-market-and-subsidized quasi-vaccine.

I say “quasi,” because the Pfizer vaccine is not a normal vaccine . . . it is gene therapy. Experimental gene therapy. But hey: people should be able to try an experimental medicine.

But no one should be forced to take such a thing.

Why? The risk!

Oh, and our rights to medical freedom.

While people line up to take the “jabs” as they become available, surely de Rugy is right to caution that “Americans believing that governments can and must do anything to achieve a zero-risk society” is the riskiest notion of all.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

4 Cops for Every Congressman

by Daniel Greenfield: In "Surf City," there were two girls for every boy. But in Swamp City, there are four cops for every Congressman.

That doesn’t refer to Washington D.C.’s already huge concentration of law enforcement and multiple overlapping police forces. Washington D.C. has the highest ratio of police to people of any major city in the country. There are 650 officers for every 100,000 residents in D.C. That’s 40% higher than any other major city in America including Chicago and Baltimore. It has a 58% higher police ratio than New York, more than double that of Boston, and triple that of L.A.

But that’s nothing compared to the private police force dedicated only to protecting Congress.

The Capitol Police, which has been in the spotlight since the Capitol Riot, has over 2,000 sworn officers. Pelosi’s private police force is the 19th largest police force in America.

It’s already larger than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, and Milwaukee.

While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. And now it’s demanding even more money.

Speaker Pelosi claimed, “It's going to take more money to protect the Capitol in a way that enables people to come here."

How much money? Who knows.

Colonel Bowie managed to hold off the Mexican Army at the Alamo for over a week with a few hundred men, but the Capitol Police couldn't keep Congress for an hour with a thousand.

Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman, told Congress that she needed funding for 212 new sworn officers and 111 dignitary protection agents. That's a fancy name for the congressional version of secret service agents for "high-profile members of Congress." Teams of four of these “agents” accompany their important charges. Since then, the number of agents has been increased and there are six dignitary agents protecting every single “high-profile member of Congress”.

(Some dignitary protection agents had even been deployed to protect the homes of “high-profile members of Congress” during the Capitol Riot and weren’t available to help during the fighting.)

That would take the Capitol Police up to at least 2,200 sworn officers. And with 535 elected officials in the House and Senate, that’s a ratio of 4 cops for every congressman and woman.

Meanwhile the high-profile members get a private security detail of 6 cops.

While the names of those high-profile members are not available for security reasons, these likely included senior leadership figures in both parties as well as high-profile politicians who attract a lot of threats. That would likely include some members of the Squad and other Democrat proponents of police defunding. Or defunding other people’s police anyway.

While Democrats have advocated for police defunding, their House and Senate majorities currently enjoy some of the densest possible ratio of police for them and their employees.

House members had 3,695 staffers (total 6,880 nationwide) and Senate members had 2,342 staffers (total 4,120 nationwide) working in their D.C. offices for a combined 6,037 people.

That's up from 146 in 1891, and 304 in 1943, which is understandable since our government works much better now than when we won WW2.

Between members of Congress and their staffers (not to mention kits, cats, sacks, and wives), that’s over 6,500 people to be protected by 2,200 sworn officers. Or a cop per 3 employees.

Even Vatican City, with the highest police ratio in the world, is more modest than that.

The shopkeepers of Kenosha would have appreciated that kind of police ratio during the Black Lives Matter riots that robbed them of their livelihoods with the backing of the Democrats.

But it stands to reason that the big government elites of the political faction that embraced police defunding not only need their own private police force, but that while the people in the cities whose police forces they want to defund have to make do with 440 officers per 100,000 people in Chicago and 320 officers per 100,000 people Detroit, they enjoy a 1 officer per 3 people ratio.

Police defunding means no cops to answer the call in Seattle or Minneapolis, but 4 cops for every Democrat Congressman whose life is much more important than those of mere taxpayers.

Some might argue that Republicans also enjoy the benefit of a private police force. But that’s not how Speaker Pelosi sees things. According to Pelosi, Republicans are the enemy.

Speaker Pelosi insisted on “more security for members, when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members are concerned about.” Who is this enemy within?

“We have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress,” Pelosi incited. If members have actually threatened violence against other members, why doesn’t she file charges? But Pelosi has admitted that she wants more cops to protect Democrat members of Congress from Republican Congressmen.

If the “enemy is within the House of Representatives”, then the only solution is to turn the Capitol Police into a Praetorian Guard to accompany Democrat police defunders everywhere. And then Republicans can create their own police force to protect them from the Democrats. If America is going to live out the last era of the Roman Empire, we might as well do it in style.

And since history has been cancelled on account of racism, Pelosi will be really surprised when Chief Yogananda Pittman threatens to replace her unless she ups the ‘donativum’ to the force.

Meanwhile the calls for more money and more personnel for the Capitol Police continue to grow.

D.C. is already the most over-policed city in America. And yet somehow, no one could manage to cope with one day of riots. The Capitol Police, with 2,000 sworn officers, over 1,000 of whom were on duty, claimed that they couldn’t cope with the riot and needed the National Guard.

The D.C. police force, with 3,750 sworn officers, the Park Police, which was also on the scene, and the multitude of other law enforcement personnel and services, some you have heard of, like the FBI, and some which you may have not like the Supreme Court Police (yes, they exist), the D.C. Protective Services Division, and the Federal Protective Service, couldn’t help either.

Washington D.C. is the epicenter of law enforcement in the country. There are more law enforcement personnel in the imperial city than anywhere in the country. And there are more individual agencies, services, and sub-services with armed personnel than anyone can count. Nearly every federal agency has its own private police. Some have SWAT teams. These are often attached to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) departments based out of D.C.

Four years ago, the Obama administration sent a contingent of heavily armed agents wearing body armor on a Department of Defense plane to Chicken, Alaska, a town of 17 people, on an EPA investigation of Clean Water Act violations that turned up absolutely nothing. If the Democrats could do this to Chicken, Alaska, one of the furthest places in America, they can manage to protect 2 square miles and a handful of buildings with thousands of officers.

Four cops for every Congressman is more than enough in Swamp City, USA.

Some Final Thoughts on Reparations

by Larry Elder: How would reparations be funded?

Conservative writer Michael Medved estimates that only 5% of whites in America “bear any authentic sort of generational guilt for the exploitation of slave labor.”

Why should anyone but Democrats pay?

Scholar Dinesh D’Souza notes that all but a “handful” of slave owners were Democrats. The Ku Klux Klan, at its height of power and popularity, was known by the NAACP as the “terror wing” of the Democratic Party. The KKK was founded by Democrats; I did not say by the Democratic Party, but by Democrats. As a percentage of their party, more House Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did House Democrats. As a percentage of their party, more Senate Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did Senate Democrats.

I recently reread Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” in which he takes fellow clergymen to task for asking him to wait. King wrote:

“Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, ‘Wait.’ But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick and even kill your black brothers and sisters. … When you are harried by day and haunted by night by the fact that you are a Negro, living constantly at tiptoe stance, never quite knowing what to expect next, and are plagued with inner fears and outer resentments; when you are forever fighting a degenerating sense of ‘nobodiness’ — then you will understand why we find it difficult to wait.”

We no longer live in that America.

In 1964, King gave an interview to the BBC where he predicted there could be a Black president in “less than 40 years. I would think that this can come in 25 years or less.” Just about right on the 40-year schedule, America elected Barack Obama.

King did not say that in less than 40 years’ time, there will have been a Black female president of an Ivy League college — which we have had. He did not say in 40 years, they’ll be a Black CEO of a Fortune 500 company; there have been several, including the former CEO of McDonald’s. King didn’t say in 40 years, there will be a Black governor of a state like Virginia, the capital state of the Confederacy — which has happened. He didn’t say when 80% of Blacks will no longer be poor, which is now the case.

No, King suggested that we will have reached the promised land when America elects a Black president. Why? Because in the privacy of the voting booth or the mail-in ballot, one can vote however one wants. If a voter is racist, he or she can vote accordingly. King felt when Americans became fair-minded enough to elect a Black person whom they felt qualified for the presidency, we then have reached a point where we are evaluating each other based on content of our character, rather than color of skin, to the fullest degree realistically possible.

Far more important than the issue of reparations is this: Why has the rate of out-of-wedlock births in the Black community nearly tripled from 1965 until now, when America is clearly less racist now than 56 years ago? Even during slavery, a Black child was more likely to live under a roof with his or her biological mother and biological father than today. This makes linking today’s problems to slavery and Jim Crow all the more difficult.

In 1965, 24% of Black children were born outside of wedlock. In 2018 — the latest year available — that number was 69%. On Father’s Day in 2008, Barack Obama said: “We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.”

Finally, Obama, when asked about reparations in 2016, said:

“It is easy to make that theoretical argument. But as a practical matter, it is hard to think of any society in human history in which a majority population has said that as a consequence of historic wrongs, we are now going to take a big chunk of the nation’s resources over a long period of time to make that right.”

He was right.

One Year Ago, Biden's Border Crisis, Cuomo's Crisis, Confronting Communist China

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer: One Year Ago
The long, national nightmare known as the pandemic lockdowns began a year ago today. Predictably, the left shamefully politicized it.

Democrat politicians and their left-wing media allies constantly berated President Trump and second-guessed him. They demanded the shutdowns, which Trump resisted, and liberal governors and mayors were all too eager to enforce them.

The left refused to blame communist China for the virus because that didn't help the "blame Trump" narrative. And when Trump suspended travel from communist China, the left doubled down by labeling Trump a "racist" and a "xenophobe."

The evidence is clear that the virus ended up contributing to Trump's defeat for a variety of reasons.
  • The lockdowns tanked the economy.
  • The restrictions on public events prevented Trump from holding his tremendous rallies.
  • And, perhaps most importantly, liberal politicians, judges and unelected bureaucrats used the pandemic as an excuse to dramatically change election laws and to gut election integrity safeguards.
  • If you were trying to think of ways to sabotage Trump and put the left in power, the pandemic was the perfect political weapon. And you don't have to take my word for it.
Senior Biden adviser Anita Dunn, who takes inspiration from Chairman Mao, said that "Covid is the best thing that ever happened to [Biden.]"

Of course, the left is still exploiting the pandemic, using it as an excuse to ram through a massive $1.9 trillion spending bill that is jammed full of outrages like reparations for black farmers, cash for criminals, union bailouts, and, yes, tax increases.

Even now, we are still struggling to get businesses, churches and schools reopened in many blue states.

Biden's Border Crisis
The migrant surge at the southern border is getting worse with every passing day. Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants in February. That's up 170% from one year ago, and it's the highest number of February apprehensions in 15 years!

Apprehensions of unaccompanied minors jumped 58% from January to February, and 166% from February of 2020. According to the New York Times, the Biden Administration is now "scrambling" to find more housing for all these unaccompanied minors.

With some Border Patrol facilities operating at 500% capacity, the Biden Administration is reportedly looking to covert the NASA research center at Moffett Field in California into a child detention facility.

Who knows what it will take for the Biden Administration to admit that they actually have a crisis at the southern border!

It's ironic that so many people voted for Biden because they thought he could handle a crisis. Well, he's only been in office for 50 days, and he's already created one!

Cuomo's Crisis
It's another day, and yet another woman has come forward to accuse New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual assault and harassment. We're up to six now, and the governor's position is increasingly perilous.

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced the appointment of not one, but two special prosecutors to investigate the allegations against Cuomo.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is now publicly demanding that Cuomo resign. So are 85 members of the New York legislature, including Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins.

While six victims of Cuomo's inappropriate behavior may ultimately drive him from office, we can't forget the thousands of victims who died as a result of his nursing home scandal. And Cuomo's not the only Democrat governor with a nursing home scandal.

It turns out that 23% of all nursing home coronavirus deaths occurred in just four states – Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The Democrat governors of these states, Whitmer (MI), Murphy (NJ) and Wolf (PA), all followed Cuomo's example and ordered nursing homes to accept COVID patients.

By the way, Cuomo may not be the only Democrat governor who engaged in a coverup.

Garland Confirmed
The Senate yesterday confirmed Judge Merrick Garland to be attorney general of the United States. I wasn't surprised by the outcome in the Democrat Senate. But I was disappointed by the 70 to 30 vote.

Why would 20 Republicans vote for Garland?

Do they approve of his defense of Antifa?

Do they approve of his professed ignorance on illegal immigration?

Do they approve of his hostility to the Second Amendment?

I understand that Joe Biden is going to appoint a liberal attorney general. I understand that the Democrat Senate will confirm that individual. But I don't understand why any conservative senator would feel a need to vote for him.

Democrats would never do that. Only one Democrat – not 20 – voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Sadly, this vote shows that many GOP senators still don't get it. They desperately want to get back to "normal times," but there are no Democrats saying we need to get back to normal.

To the contrary, Democrats are pushing a hard-left agenda, which every conservative should be fighting, and Attorney General Garland will be crucial to implementing that hard-left agenda!

The Senate will soon be voting on more of Biden's extreme nominees, including Xavier Becerra, Kristen Clarke, Vanita Gupta and Rachel Levine. I hope Senate Republicans show better judgment and more unity on these votes.

Confronting Communist China
As a Trump appointee to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, I participated in a hearing yesterday that exposed the complicity of American multi-national corporations in slave labor and religious persecution.

While slave labor is a problem in many parts the world, our hearing focused on communist China's enslavement of Muslim Uyghurs. You can watch my opening statement here, which begins at the 10:35 mark.

I am pleased to report that the Biden Administration now admits that genocide is taking place in communist China. Of course, actions speak louder than words. It remains to be seen what, if anything, the administration is willing to do about it.

Polling shows the American people see communist China as an adversary, and they want our government to take a tougher stand, especially when it comes to Beijing's human rights abuses.
