It’s Not a Loophole Just Because Democrats Don’t Like It

August 6 2022

Good morning from Washington, where the Senate holds a "vote-a-rama" this weekend as Democrats scramble to spend more of your money. We've got suitably outraged commentaries from David Harsanyi and Deroy Murdock. Biden's reaction to China's continued belligerance isn't reassuring, Patty-Jane Geller writes. On the podcast, Richard Reinsch chats with fellow Heritage Foundation scholar Brenda Hafera about the wokening of presidential homes. Plus: commentator James Lindsay takes on groomers; using guns to defend ourselves; and "Doonesbury" won't let Trump alone. On this date in 1948, diver Vicki Draves wins gold at the London Olympics, becoming the first Asian American to do so.

By Jennie Taer
