Joe Biden’s Policing Policies Will Endanger Police, Raise Crime Rates, and Hurt Blacks. Joe Biden’s Policing Policies Will Endanger Police, Raise Crime Rates, and Hurt Blacks.

(Akiit.com) Joe Biden doesn’t understand the risks and dangers involved in policing. Police have a tough and dangerous job, and armored military vehicles, shields and military-grade body armor can save officers’ lives. During an online interview with Ady Barkan, Biden announced that he wanted to return to Obama’s ban on supplying surplus military equipment to police. “Surplus military equipment... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) According to the Washington Post, the 45th President told 19,126 lies between his inauguration in 2017 and June 1, 2020.  By now, the number has likely edged toward 20,000, as his Tulsa “rally” yielded dozens more.  This President has no allegiance to the truth, but that’s no surprise.  Leading up to his ill-timed gathering, amid the coronavirus, he projected more than... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) It was one of the more amazing internet stories last year. The vastly popular sports-based website Deadspin had gone through some managerial changes and when one of its executives suggested an alteration to the focus on the site it led to a level of editorial revolt. It was a remarkable chain of events, something I covered in its wake last fall. The combination of hubris and obstinance... [Read more of this review]


Movie Review; Mr. Jones. Movie Review; Mr. Jones.

(Akiit.com) Before there was fake news, distorting realty for evil purposes was called propaganda. That’s what the Russians did pre-WWII to convince the West that the Soviet Ukraine had economic prowess, prosperous citizens and full bellies. BS. The truth had to be told. In the 1930s, Gareth Jones (James Norton, Little Women and Belle), a young Welsh investigative journalist, is stationed in London... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Dear blue-state governors: On last night’s call I detected some concern about the amount of federal money coming to you to fund your state budgets in exchange for exploiting the virus and racial/police riots in pursuit of our goal of getting rid of Trump. I will address the money issue, but first let’s step back and reexamine all the good work we have done to date. Since March,... [Read more of this review]


2020; Democrats to the Rescue? 2020; Democrats to the Rescue?

(Akiit.com) Democrats are super-woke and care deeply about the issue of racial justice, just ask them. It’s their top priority. Even Joe Biden, live from his basement, delivers powerful statements on the issue of police reform and racial reconciliation, albeit drained of energy and read, unconvincingly, from a teleprompter. As the saying goes, it’s the thought that counts, right? When it comes... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) When asked to name Republican disappointments in the United States Senate, conservatives don’t struggle naming names.  Turncoats like former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who helped Democrats crucify Justice Kavanaugh.  The late John McCain who helped save Obamacare.  No conservative would forget the most famous modern-day RINO of all – Mitt “Pierre... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Da 5 Bloods has the potential to be a timely, thoughtful allegory. They fought together in Vietnam decades ago.

(Akiit.com) “What are you talking that nonsense for? You know he’s limited to two terms!” It is undeniable that President Trump has received a very raw deal from the Democrats during the first part of his first term as president. Obama treated the nation’s intelligence services as his own private wiretap on the Trump campaign, and once he took office, on the Trump administration.... [Read more of this review]
