    (Paul Mirengoff) In his first day as president, Joe Biden had something for almost everyone in his far-left coalition. For the climate alarmists, he signed an executive order revoking the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. For the radical LGBT crowd, he signed an executive order that I read as calling on schools across the country to allow transgender athletes to participate in the sport of their gender identity. (It says, “Children

    (Scott Johnson) Federal Judge Barbara Rothstein has denied Parler’s motion for a preliminary injunction ordering Amazon to reinstate it. Judge Rothstein’s order was posted online here by NPR. NPR’s story collects quotes from the players. Judge Rothstein isn’t a judge friendly to Parler, but this result is otherwise unsurprising.

    (Paul Mirengoff) If there’s any Joe Biden pose more phony than his purported moderation, it’s his purported decency. Biden is not a decent person. Plenty of examples to support this statement. The best one is set forth by Kevin Williamson: Of all of Biden’s dishonesty — the plagiarism and other intellectual dishonesty, the invented biographical episodes, etc. — the one that sticks out the most to me is his lying, repeatedly, about
