Pinkerton: New York Times Continues Its Long History of Covering for Commies with Gorbachev Obit

You can always count on the New York Times to put its liberal spin on events. For instance, this breaking news headline: “Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet leader who transformed the map of Europe and presided over the end of the Cold War, has died at 91.”  We can see the spin here: the Times gives Gorbachev […]

Pinkerton: The Bud McFarlane I Knew

Robert C. McFarlane served his country in actual combat in Vietnam and later in political combat in three White Houses, where he helped defeat the “evil empire” without firing a single shot. He deserves to be remembered as a hero, not as a left-wing media target.

Pinkerton: Carter 2.0 – Media Runs Interference for Joe Just Like They Did for Jimmy by Claiming He’s the Best We Can Hope for

In the 1970s, the media gave President Jimmy Carter a free pass. Now, the establishment media is giving President Joe Biden the same free pass. Unfortunately for them, the American people didn’t buy it then and aren’t buying it now.

Green Business as Usual President Biden says he’s doing all he can to help Ukraine. “We are inflicting pain on Russia and supporting the people of Ukraine,” he declared in his State of the Union address last week. “Yes, we the United States of America stand with the Ukrainian people.” That was nice to hear, but the real […]

Pinkerton: Biden’s ‘Big Shift’ on Climate Change Is the ‘Great Reset’ by Stealth

From “Pen and Phone” to “Pretty Big Shift”  Remember back in 2014 when President Barack Obama said that he would conduct his presidency by “pen and phone”? He said that after he had lost control of Congress and was no longer able to pass legislation. His new idea was that he would continue to advance progressive […]

Pinkerton: NYC’s Woke District Attorney Is Creating the Real-Life Sequel to ‘Escape from New York’

Did you ever see movie Escape From New York? The crime-news of today bring that decades-old film back to mind.   Starring Kurt Russell, Escape From New York, released in 1981, had a wild premise: Manhattan had become so crime-ridden that authorities simply built a wall around it, turning the island into a giant prison.  That […]

Pinkerton: Carter 2.0 — Biden Blames Others for His Own Energy Failures

Joe Biden is the gift that keeps on giving. The gift, that is, of parallels with fellow Democrat Jimmy Carter.

Pinkerton: The Last Time Nancy Pelosi Persuaded House Democrats to Jump Off a Cliff

By a narrow margin, the Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives voted on complicated and controversial legislation.   Inside-the-Beltway observers, always attuned to political technique, were duly impressed by the muscle used to get the bill through the House. In the words of Politico, “Despite the tough path to passage, the legislation is a […]

Western Guilt and the Great Reset  Here’s the bottom line on the just-ended COP 26, the international climate change conference that’s been meeting for the last two weeks in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pinkerton: Trouble in Bidenville – 6 Takeaways on Biden’s Infrastructure Bill

The passage of Joe Biden’s $550 billion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF) is a game-changer—although it might not change the game in the way that Democrats want. Here are six takeaways on BIF:  1. The bill is a poisoned chalice—because Democrats poisoned it.   On November 6, the morning after BIF passed the U.S. House, the lead […]

Pinkerton: The Destructive Left-Wing Logic Behind Biden’s Embrace of $450K Reparations for Border Crossers

Sweet Money From Uncle Sugar? Did you hear the one about the Biden administration’s plan to pay illegal aliens $450,000?  It’s not a joke, even if President Biden, on November 3, called it “garbage” and “not true.” And yet as we shall see, the plan was true, and it did come from his administration.  So while […]

Pinkerton: Democrats Confront the Mysteries of Afghanistan as They Run Interference for Biden’s Debacle

The Last Mistake in Afghanistan?  Probably a lot of Americans thought that the death of 13 American servicemen and women at the Kabul airport on August 26 would be the last tragic debacle of our Afghanistan misadventure.  Indeed, perhaps some Americans felt a little better when they heard the news that the U.S. military had […]

Pinkerton: Time for the U.S. Government to Keep Faith with Those Who Do and Die

October 23, 1983 Thirty-eight years ago, a suicide bomber stunned America into defensive action.   I’m referring, of course, to the 1983 terrorist truck-bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon that killed 241 American servicemen.  I was living in Washington, D.C., at the time, and I remember that within hours — as most of us […]

Pinkerton: What Would Reagan Do? Five Lessons the Gipper Could Teach Biden After Afghanistan Debacle

In view of the ongoing Kabul Debacle, it’s obvious that Joe Biden needs some pointers on leadership and management of foreign policy and national security.

Pinkerton: 6 Things Joe Biden Could Do About Covid if He Is Serious

Joe Biden has been doing everything he can to encourage Americans to get vaccinated and to eradicate the coronavirus pandemic. Or has he?

Pinkerton: What the Tech Tycoon Space Race Means for the Rest of Us

So Richard Branson beat Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk to be the first billionaire to go to space.  Much of the worldwide coverage of Branson’s space jaunt was bubbly enthusiasm. For instance, the Asia-based Wionews headlined, “Richard Branson realises his lifelong dream with Virgin Galactic spaceflight.”  Indeed, critics tweet-pounced on coverage deemed fawning: “Almost everything that […]

Pinkerton: A Bad Romance — How Republicans Fell Out of Love with Big Tech

The Old Right Fusionism Here’s a data point deserving of attention: More Republicans than Democrats want to restrain or even break up Big Tech.  According to a new poll by Vox and Data for Progress, 70 percent of Republicans think “Big Tech’s economic power is a problem facing the U.S. economy.” At the same time, 59 percent […]

Pinkerton: China – the Forbidden Country That Forbids the Truth

What Happened to China’s Richest Man? What Winston Churchill once said about Russia also applies to China: The country is “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Two important cases illustrate the black-box opaqueness of the People’s Republic of China, reminding us just how little we know about what’s happening in the country […]

Pinkerton: Georgia and the Arts of War and Politics 

The Power Game Is a Numbers Game The final battle of the 2020 elections—the two senatorial runoff elections in Georgia—comes to a close on January 5.  And yet as we shall see, the Democrats’ patient preparations for the battle have been going on for years. An indication of the work that’s been done came on […]

Pinkerton: The Covid Class War — the Liberated vs. the Locked Down

The Double Standard  One rule for thee, and one rule for me.  That sort of hypocrisy has been baked into human power relations, since, well, forever.  As the Greek historian Thucydides wrote 2,500 years ago, “The strong do what they will, and the weak suffer what they must.” Today, in the midst of the Covid-19 […]

Pinkerton: Barack Obama Is a Machiavellian Fox in ‘A Promised Land’

Friends in High Finance Barack Obama’s new memoir, A Promised Land, bills itself as “a riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making—from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy.” And of course, it’s an instant mega best-seller, eagerly bought by blue-dot believers everywhere, fully justifying the 2017 book-deal by […]

Pinkerton: October Surprises in U.S. History

Another October Surprise So now we have our “October Surprise”—at least one of them. The news that President Trump has tested positive for Covid-19, has been hospitalized, and released, throws the remaining weeks of the presidential campaign into an even more uncertain kind of uncertainty. In the next few days, and for the rest of the campaign season, […]

Pinkerton: The Crime Election — Trump vs. Biden 

The Issue is Law and Order Six months or a year ago, an observer might have thought that this presidential campaign would be waged over impeachment, or Iran, or the coronavirus, or maybe China.  Instead, we’re having an election over rioting, violence—and law and order.   On August 25, CNN’s Don Lemon said of the […]
