The Presidents Day Political Post

So who is your favorite president? Mine, of all the presidents in my lifetime (Truman through the present, although I was only conscious of Ike as he was about to leave office), is Ronald Reagan. Not so much a detail guy, and opposed awfully hard by the media and Democrats, he nevertheless understood that freedom was the essential lubrication for a society.

Speaking of Ron, at Town Hall, his son Michael thinks The State of Our Union Is Sorry. When a Democrats loses ABC, At News Busters, 'Looks Like Jimmy Carter': ABC Panel Torches Biden Over Inflation, Economy. Jimmy Carter is a best case scenario. At Da Beast, Matt Lewis whines Democrats Are Losing the Culture Wars by Blindly Pushing Progressive Ideals. Somewhat conspiracy minded sundance at CTH sees the Ron Klain’s Domestic Motive for Ukraine Crisis Surfaces – White House to Blame Economic Collapse, Gas Prices and Inflation on Manufactured Russia-Ukraine Conflict. Well, they'll certainly blame them on something other than their policies. At WUWT, Eric Worrall  Climate Action? Politically Vulnerable Democrats Demand Lower Gasoline Taxes. It's an act. The long-term goal of Democrats is higher gas prices, with just enough wiggle room to bring them down a little before elections. WaEx warns Biden pressured by the Left on student loans. He'd be a fool to do it, which is why he might. 

Politico is concerned Josh Mandel Could Be Ohio’s Next Senator. So What Does He Believe?, "He publicly changed from moderate to full MAGA warrior to survive in today’s GOP. It might work." We all learned something from Trump. Imagine that, a Senator actually adapting to the will of his constituents! How dare he! At 1945, AOC Or Liz Cheney: Hillary Clinton Has Many Choices For A 2024 Running Mate. Gag me with a spoon!

Regarding Jan. 5, Miranda Devine at NYPo compares and contrasts BLM privilege and Jan. 6 Capitol riot shame.

In the mask wars, Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair hears the CDC quietly lowers the bar for early childhood speech development
For the first time in decades, the CDC has changed many of the recognized milestones for childhood development in terms of speech and cognitive functions. These markers are considered important in terms of recognizing when children aren’t progressing quickly enough, suggesting the potential need to determine if some sort of impairment is being observed and if the child may require greater medical attention. The curious thing about the changes instituted by the CDC is that in a majority of the cases, they have lowered the standards rather than raising them. I first noticed this news on Twitter, as so often happens these days.

You can read the new guidelines here. One of the big changes that many critics are focusing on is the former guideline saying that children should normally know approximately fifty words by 24 months or two years of age. That benchmark has now been stealthily raised to 30 months. That’s not insignificant at all. It’s a 25% increase from the previous standard.

Anyone masking a 2 year old is committing child abuse. At NYPo, Bill Maher rails against school mask mandates for kids: ‘Creating a generation of Howie Mandels’. But Bloomies, cited by MSN, thinks Unmasking Comes Too Soon for Some Still Wary of Covid’s Wiles.   Twitchy has a great video, ‘We’re COMING for them, all of them’: School board member freaks TF out when bada*s mom confronts her with maskless pics, STORMS out (watch)

Eric Levitz at MSN, America Can Get Back to Normal and Get Better at Fighting COVID. That's assuming Democrats want to give up the power and go back to normal. AllahPundit at Haut Hair (who is slowly bending to the wind of WuFlu freedom), California gov: Ours will be the first state to shift to an "endemic COVID" approach "Who’s going to tell him that most red states shifted to an “endemic COVID” approach a year ago?" Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair VIP, New York City parents pulling their children from public schools in record numbers. You may not be able to read, but you don't really have to. 

KTLA, Controversy erupts after parents of Los Alamitos fifth-graders learn of sleeping arrangements at camp 

The parents say their fifth-grade girls told them some of the biologically male counselors at Camp Pali in San Bernardino who use they/them pronouns spent three nights sleeping in cabins with the young girls.

“I contacted the school and asked them if they were able to confirm that there was not a man actually sleeping in the same cabin as the girls. They were not able to confirm that,” added parent Rachel Sandoval.

“Per California law, we place staff in cabins they identify with,” Emmi Teige, assistant director of Camp Pali, confirmed.
From City Journal, Rocky Top Goes Woke, "How the University of Tennessee–Knoxville did an end-run around state legislators to implement a radical “antiracist” agenda." Give them a choice for no funding of CRT, or no funding period. 

Regarding one of the leading candidates for Justice Breyer's seat on the Supreme Court, Ken Sondik at Am Spec warns about Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Judicial Off-Roading, "Her ruling in this case demonstrates unfitness for the High Court." Are you expecting better? I'm not.
