CORTES: Welcome to Joe Biden’s American Carnage.

In his Inaugural Address, President Donald J. Trump promised that the misery inflicted on everyday Americans by globalists, via constant war and economic abuse, would end with a new America First agenda. He pledged, “this American carnage stops right here and stops right now.” And stop it did, as Trump ended senseless wars and ushered in record-setting wage growth in 2019 before the CCP virus hit America like an epidemiological Pearl Harbor. But now, under Joe Biden, the carnage begins anew, with astounding swiftness and scale, only months into his administration. Biden’s failures exceed even the most dire prognostications of

Republicans Can Deliver a Knockout to Wobbly Biden – Will They?

Joe Biden is teetering in the corner. His popularity is careening downward due to the concurrent major crises he created: the border disaster and the inflation spike. Recognizing the data on this trend, amidst all the backroom machinations of the so-called infrastructure package, if the Republicans on Capitol Hill can steel themselves and see the opportunity, they can deliver a devastating knockout to Joe Biden.  Just how bad is Biden’s approval trend? Consider that his overall approval, per CNBC survey, has cratered a stunning 14 percent over the last six months, from 62 percent positive in February to only 48

CORTES: Welcoming Back the Traditional, One-Income Family.

Good news on the cultural front is rare in 2020s America, so we should gleefully celebrate recent updates from the Census Bureau about the resurgence of two-parent families raising children. A half-century ago, nearly 90 percent of American children lived with both married parents, but that number cratered from the 1960s onward. The number of children living with a divorced or never-married single parent tripled from only nine percent in 1960 to 28 percent in 2005. But, suddenly the tide turns. For the first time since the 1980s, over 70 percent of American kids live with both married parents again.

CORTES: Hispanic Men Are Rallying to America First.

The New York Times seems determined to demonstrate to America just how disconnected their newsroom is from the lives of regular citizens, especially those of the working classes. To this point, the “newspaper of record” just published a culturally and politically-aloof column titled A Vexing Question for Democrats: What Drives Latino Men to Republicans?  Predictably, pseudo-reporter Jennifer Medina provided several illogical bromides to explain the affinity of Hispanic men for the America First agenda. Here’s the reality: unlike the neutered males of the credentialed ruling class, Hispanic men still largely embrace traditional roles as providers and guardians. Therefore, Hispanic men increasingly rally to

CORTES: Biden’s Looming Border Crisis.

Joe Biden’s open borders radicalism invites a human tsunami of illegal migration. Consider the startling, latest evidence from the US Border Patrol: apprehensions of adults at the southern border in January 2021 vaulted 182 percent higher vs. January of 2020, from 86,449 to 244,053 total encounters. People respond to incentives, including would-be trespassers into our homeland. Biden’s moves to effectively vaporize the US border threaten an economic, humanitarian, and national security nightmare scenario for America. Specifically, Biden’s America has already suspended deportations and is dismantling Trump’s highly effective “remain in Mexico” policy regarding asylum applicants. Biden is also asking Congress

CORTES: Trump Can Turn the Impeachment on the Insiders and Put Congress on ‘Trial’.

As former President Trump faces the second sham impeachment effort of Speaker Nancy Pelosi in just over a year, opportunity arises, both for him and for the America First movement. Within this shameful political charade, the overreaching Democrats included accusations that allow for Team Trump to make a robust case before the nation about the material problems that mar the November 3rd presidential vote, in a forum of unparalleled prominence and reach. If Trump dives headlong into this challenge with courage, imagination, and the charisma that only he can command, then he will transcend the absurdity of this tribunal, crystallize

CORTES: Republic… or Oligarchy?

At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, when asked what kind of government the Framers had created for our new nation, Benjamin Franklin reportedly responded: “a republic, if you can keep it.” Like the other Founding Fathers, Franklin understood deeply how representative government, like the Roman Republic, could devolve into oligarchy and eventual dictatorship. Accordingly, the American Constitution endeavored to channel the best practices of self-government from the Classical world while avoiding a similar subsequent fate. This coming week in America may well determine the “if you can keep it” part. The most powerful interests in

Cortes: If Biden Were Sure of His “Victory”, He’d Welcome Transparency.

If Joe Biden manages to get sworn-in as president on January 20, 2021, he will enter office as the most doubted new president in American history. According to Monmouth University polling, fully 77 percent of President Trump’s 75 million voters believe that Joe Biden’s alleged victory resulted from electoral fraud. Given this widespread suspicion among tens of millions of Americans, it is little wonder that a scant 3 percent of Trump voters believe the president should concede to Biden, per CNBC’s survey. In addition to these grave doubts about election integrity, legions of Americans just now learn for the first
