    Getty As the debate around stimulus checks rages – whether they are being delivered competently, when people can expect Congress to agree on a package for more and why Trump did not include them in his executive orders – many Americans are eying other countries’ economic relief packages and often with envy. However, some of the figures being thrown around are misleading and other circumstances, including how well the pandemic is contained, have affected countries’ economic responses. To date, U.S. residents should have received one $1,200 check per individual with an additional $500 per dependent, according to the agency’s website. But the Internal Revenue Service has received heavy criticism for several gaffes around the delivery (or lack thereof)...

    Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight predicts that Donald Trump has just a 29 percent chance at winning re-election in November, with his presumed opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, facing a 71 percent chance at victory. Ever since Trump’s opponent led the polls in 2016, only to lose the election, some people have questioned the accuracy of predictions like those made by FiveThirtyEight. But the respected statisticians explain that while the former secretary of state had only a small lead in most polls, Biden’s lead over Trump is much larger. “As elections analyst Geoffrey Skelley wrote last week, Biden’s lead over Trump has already topped Clinton’s post-convention peak. Biden also enjoys more overall support than Clinton. In other words, there’s a genuine...

    The first crack at filling the vacancy in the Mets rotation could belong to Walker Lockett.

    One of the most prominent characteristics of leftists in modern America is their complete inability or unwillingness to apply their principles consistently, especially in their personal lives. Stark illustrations of this problem are provided by the climate alarmist who warns of an impending apocalypse but still maintains a 401k, and the pro-abortion zealot who congratulates a pregnant woman despite believing her to be infested by a subhuman parasite. Of course there are also the well worn examples of the socialist tweeting about the pitfalls of capitalism on his iPhone and the progressive politician preaching about the evils of guns while flanked by a squadron of armed security. It seems that, if not for cognitive dissonance, many on the Left wouldn’t...
