The Army activated the entire D.C. National Guard, 1,100 troops, an Army official said Wednesday, and Virginiaâs governor dispatched members of the Virginia Guard along with 200 Virginia State Troopers to quell the violence in the nationâs capital.
Time and again he returned to the theme that the news media is âthe biggest problem we have in this country.â He complained about polls conducted for the Washington Post several months ago, speaking with specifics about the poll he was referring to.

In 3 years, I'm willing to bet that all you'll hear from the Republican candidates is how much better the markets did under Trump than Biden. Joe's inheriting a bubble, not a rocketship.
Well, markets also tend to prefer lame duck presidents. I see markets as a short-term voting machine by folks who seek to increase private wealth levels and are not concerned about longer-term social outcomes. A Democratic sweep of these two seats may not be well received by all.
Higher government spending also comes with larger deficits and debts.
I am sure that once the Biden regime is in full swing that Republicans will re-discover fiscal conservatism (the rhetoric at the least) and implicitly renounce their current Marxist-Keynesian fiscal policy position.
