Howard Dean, failed Presidential candidate and political punchline, has found himself in the limelight a bit more frequently as of late.

For a name that was once universally know for this distinctly silly “battle cry” years ago, Dean has been quiet on the DC scene for some time now.  This had led many to believe that the democrat could soon be eyeing public office again, especially with the 2020 presidential election looming.

If so, get ready for a lot more jokes like this one from the almighty Dave Chappelle:

In Dean’s latest quest for airtime, he has made an incredibly bold statement that should disqualify him from holding any public office again, declaring that free speech mechanisms on the internet should be made culpable to the hate crimes committed by their users.

The response by Dean was aimed at Gab.ai – a free speech promoting Twitter alternative that seeks to keep the First Amendment alive online in the wake of Twitter, Facebook, and Google’s apparent attempts to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

Dean is not only attempting to convey a dangerous message about the culpability of those within earshot of hate crimes, but he is actively working to undermine our right to free speech.  Sure, some of what we see on the internet is ugly, but if we don’t learn to recognize this ugliness through practice, we are doomed.

Remember always, in a liberty-forward nation, exposure to the people is the best disinfectant.  The opinions floating around the Ivory Towers in Silicon Valley mean nothing if they are not pursuant to our Constitution’s guaranteed rights.

Biden Invokes ‘Santa Claus’ in Bizarre Supply Chain Commentary

This, while taking no responsibility whatsoever for the ever-worsening consumer crisis facing Americans.

Published

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden has a way with words.  What is surprising is just which way he often chooses to go with his words.

This week was no different, as the Commander in Chief continues to struggle with criticisms of his handling of the ongoing supply chain crisis that threatens to leave the underside of many an American Christmas tree bare.

President Joe Biden tried to distance himself from supply chain disruptions this Christmas, telling Americans on Wednesday he was not responsible for any problems.

He then decided to bring Santa Claus into it for some reason.

“I can’t promise that every person will get every gift they want on time,” Biden said. “Only Santa Claus can keep that promise.”

Biden argued that shortages for some goods around Christmas were normal, citing the Cabbage Patch Kids doll shortage in the 1980s and also the shortage of Beanie Babies in past years.

But then the President simply downplayed the issues entirely, attempting to neutralize his critics.

“Here’s the deal. For the vast majority of the country, that’s not happening,” Biden said.

Then, in a statement that will surely make some CNBC pundits’ heads spin, the President suggested that the current rate of inflation was “natural”, and a byproduct of the global economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
