Will You Help Us In The Fight For Free Speech?

Issues & Insights was founded by seasoned journalists of the IBD Editorials page. Our mission is to provide timely, fact-based reporting and deeply informed analysis on the news of the day -- without fear or favor.

We’re doing this on a voluntary basis because we believe in a free press, and because we aren't afraid to tell the truth, even if it means being targeted by the left. Revenue from ads on the site help, but your support will truly make a difference in keeping our mission going. If you like what you see, feel free to visit our Donations Page by clicking here.

Michael Ramirez

Michael Ramirez is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. His cartoons are syndicated by Creators. Michael won his second Pulitzer while at Investor's Business Daily.


  • Mr. Ramirez, do you still believe we had fair and good election. What a mess we are in because of a selfish, arrogant party and man. He is criminal and so are many of the party. Sigh, what now?

  • The first hand reports from grunts on the ground indicate this is all political theater. The Taliban is described as bought and paid for by the CIA. Many troops report helping the Taliban. The photos of heavy transport aircraft taking off with hundreds or thousands of desperate Afghanis scrambling to get on board is staged and probably paid for. One soldier reports that Afghanis at the Kabul Airport were chanting “kill America” but at the same time laughing and having fun with doing it. The only thing I can surmise is that this spectacle is meant to demoralize Americans or perhaps intentionally discredit Biden so he can step aside and give the reigns of power to Kamala Harris. If I were to draw a cartoon it would have depicted how whoever staged this wanted it to be perceived side by side with how it was being choreographed.
