President Barack Obama has dramatically ramped up the Washington, D.C., giant Crony-fest. Where economic sectors and companies Obama and his Democrats like get the gold mine – and the rest of us get the shaft. For instance, there was $80 billion for “green energy” in the awful 2009 […]
High school dropouts are potential high school graduates. I worked with high school dropouts and dropout recovery for the past decade and witnessed the transformation. It has been my experience and personal observation that students who drop out of high school (or middle school for that matter) are often an overlooked population in the field […]
All the headline grabbing difficulties to choosing a new Speaker of the House are due mostly to one thing — the emergence of the powerful House Freedom Caucus. But the caucus may also now be the solution to those difficulties. Now that a supermajority in the caucus […]
“Hillary Clinton is benefiting from an in-house propagenda machine coupled with a news media that would greatly impress Reich Minister Joseph Goebbels, who ran both propaganda and entertainment media in order to further [Adolf] Hitler’s agenda…
As Thursday’s long-anticipated appearance of Hillary Clinton before the House Select […]
In an incredible new development in the criminal case of imprisoned former Congressman Richard Renzi, Federal District Court Judge David Bury has agreed to hold an evidentiary hearing on October 26th in Tucson to look into FBI corruption and consider Renzi’s motion for a new trial. This […]
I have worked for the federal government is various capacities for nearly 37 years and am in the twilight of that career. I started working on the farm where we lived in Ohio at the ripe old age of ten and, although I’ve held several private sector jobs, […]
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy stepped down from contention for the contentious position of Speaker on Thursday. This caused something approaching mass hysteria in Washington.
Chairman Paul Ryan then took himself out of contention. (Full disclosure, my elder son interned for Congressman Ryan more than a decade […]
House Speaker John Boehner, under constant sniping from his far right flank, finally hit the ejection button. This leaves the House in search of a new Speaker, presumptively but not assuredly Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, as Congress enters what Politico predicted would be the “fall from hell.” […]
With John Boehner’s stunning announcement that he would be stepping down as Speaker of the House and resigning from Congress, three Congressmen have stepped forward to replace him. There is Kevin McCarthy, the House majority leader, who is considered the natural, establishment replacement for Boehner. There is […]
A member of Congress estimated to me that out of 84-86 new GOP members who swept the House in the GOP takeover of 2010, there are only about only four to five left who remain conservative. It is a well-known fact that candidates running for Congress as […]
Washington, D.C. is a dysfunctional mess. Just about nothing gets done unless it absolutely has to get done. And when things do get done – they are just about always horrible. Bigger and bigger government, over and over again, as far as the eye can see.
For instance, […]
The Donald Trump presidential phenomenon rolls on. Higher and higher his primary polls climb. He’s caught the irretrievably corrupt Hillary Clinton in a prospective general election matchup.
The DC Establishment – made up of both Democrats and Republicans – for decades ignored our immigration laws. And dismissed and […]
The entirety of the United States is now a federal disaster area – rendered thus by Washington, D.C. Unlike areas hit by hurricanes, tornadoes and other acts of God – our cataclysm is entirely man-made. Decades of anti-Reality policies have left our nation an uber-addled mess.
There are few things more dangerous to private enterprise than government bureaucrats with time on their hands. And since most bureaucrats have no legitimate reason for being – they have lots and lots of time on their hands.
In 2009, the federal government had at least 2,748,978 […]
One of the most curiously persistent surrealisms of Washington, DC is the reflexive deference given the Federal Reserve System. The Washington elite tends to accord more infallibility to the Fed than do Catholics the Pope.
Now comes one of the world’s top monetary reporters, Ylan Q. Mui, […]
This Martian artifact “shouldn’t be there”.
There’s a heck of a lot of sophisticated technology we’re not being told about—and the monsters playing with it are terrestrial rather than alien.
One of the advantages Big Government advocates have in their efforts to end the private sector – is the size of the victim. A $17-trillion-a-year economy is so huge – it almost always takes a lot of time to dismantle.
It’s like taking down those giant […]
It is – sadly, always – a clash of two titans. The private sector and government. There are claims made that it is – or can be – a symbiotic relationship. The free market and government – walking hand-in-hand into a brighter tomorrow.
But it is never […]
“The average man doesn’t want to be free. He wants to be safe.” H.L. Mencken
Most people see the conflict between limited government and big government as a political battle between conservatives and liberals. This conflict is much more profound than political theory can encompass.
The battle […]
Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.
Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of tens (if not hundreds) of billions of dollars more down the juice-less […]
