At Townhall: Neither Biden Nor His Speechwriters Can Do Simple Math on the Afghan Pullout

1 Sep , 2021  

Dr. John Lott had a new piece at Townhall.

You have to wonder whether Biden’s speechwriters can do simple math. Possibly they don’t even care about getting numbers right because they know that no one in the press will check.

11 Aug , 2021

At the Billings Gazette: Chipman is a radical gun-control supporter

9 Aug , 2021  

Dr. John Lott has a new piece in the Billings Gazette (Billings, Montana).

President Biden has had little trouble getting even his most controversial nominees confirmed. Democrats, including Montana Senator Jon Tester, have all voted in unison. Only Neera Tanden, Biden’s pick to head his budget office, faced bipartisan opposition. But with David Chipman’s nomination to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) possibly being determined by a single vote, Senator Tester continues to refuse to say how he will vote.
