The world is upside down. I need not convince you of that. You are living through it. Words are violence, they tell us, but some physical violence is mostly peaceful. Standing as a sign of respect for the national anthem is not admirable; kneeling disrespectfully, however, is praiseworthy. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of a day when people are judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin is actually racist. Anti-racism requires racism.
Our “smartest and brightest” think it fair for men to compete in women’s sports and even affirm men can get pregnant. Just a few years ago, most people, even on the left, mocked the irrational idea. But the nonsense dominates our top leadership today. I recently came across a clip of Texas State Representative James Talrico (D- Texas 52) speaking in opposition to a bill protecting female categories in sports. He said, “modern science obviously recognizes that there are many more than two biological sexes—in fact there are six.”
Oh, he is serious. Notice it is “obvious” to him. He does admit that “he is not a biologist,” channeling his inner Ketanji Brown Jackson, who, as you know, is currently protecting women’s rights as a justice to the nation’s highest court, even though she cannot define what a woman is because she is not a biologist— obviously.

The stunning corruption we are witnessing at the U.S. Department of Justice and beyond speaks of a nation, not of laws but of lawlessness…
