Prosecutors in the U.S. Department of Justice are finally being called out for singling out Republican politicians and others they dislike. One of the victims of gross over prosecution was former Congressman Rick Renzi. As a Republican representing a swing district in Arizona, he was a […]
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Acton’s sage sentiment: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
“Great men are almost always bad men.” America […]
Not too long ago, about 30 years and before, the word “socialism” or “socialist” evoked a rather basal angst in the stomach of most Americans. Socialism was then widely acknowledged as the archenemy and the antithesis of the American system. Originally based on individual sovereignty, free markets […]
Today I learned that Barack Obama has proposed an Amendment to the Constitution that would limit the 1st Amendment. It would seem that President Obama doesn’t like the fact that we have freedom of expression, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. We also have a […]
Clint Eastwood’s iconic Dirty Harry Callahan uttered one of the greatest movie lines of all time: “A man’s got to know his limitations.” It would appear no one in Washington, D.C. has ever heard of Harry or his weighty wisdom.
No one in our nation’s capitol seems […]
It strikes me funny when all these Republicans are running on the same principles that President Bush ran on. And President Bush was a great president. A lot of idiots don’t agree, but do you really want to compare him to Clinton, Obama and Carter. Not on your […]
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, […]
Coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, the term Davos Man was meant to refer to members of the global elite who view themselves as completely international. They have no need for the term “nationality” and feel that governments are merely shadows of time past to be used as facilitators in their global operations. ~ […]
So far, the undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress have revealed that Planned Parenthood is illegally profiting from the sale of fetal body parts, a felony. Now, there is substantial evidence the abortion provider is manipulating its procedures and performing illegal partial-birth […]
The talking heads of the establishment are heaping scorn on Donald Trump like squawking crows defecate on those underneath the phone lines where they sit. The long knives are coming out of the sheaths of the New York-Washington literati. Everyone is attacking Donald Trump. But why is such animosity spewing from our media, our corporations, […]
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has long been famous for its extraordinary scenic beauty, its vibrantly authentic “Old West” culture – and since 1982, for its annual economic policy symposium where monetary policymakers from around the world gather to discuss the impact of central banking on […]
The Republicans are freaking out about Donald Trump’s refusal to rule out a 3rd party run. And why would he rule it out? He is the frontrunner now. If he shows a lack of confidence in himself or his dedication to this run, he may lose supporters. It’s part of what people love about him. […]
At least one former and four current Senators, as well as one former Representative are running for president. Unfortunately, well-intended but easily misunderstood roll call voting analyses often enable legislators to lie about their true positions instead of revealing them, thus doing more harm than good.
The pro-Trump crowd has taken to comparing Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan. Yes, all Republican candidates since 1988 have been attempting to claim the Reagan mantle, but Trump supporters have been loudly repeating this mantra for weeks. Earlier this month, prior to the first Republican debate, […]
Can anyone stop the overweening lunacy of the banking oligarchs? No more than anyone can stop pythons from devouring rabbits at play. Our bankers are not honorable. They are not farsighted. And they have set in motion forces that no human effort can avert. Moreover they long ago formed a deathly co-op with history’s most […]
“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.”
Donald Trump continues to dominate and fascinate. Why?
Politics, like comic books, thrillers, detective stories, science fiction, professional wrestling, movies and TV is a pulp medium. We Credentialed Members Of The Media Elite wish to sanctify it (and, thereby, ourselves). But come on. […]
The following is in response to Mytheos Holt’s Townhall “The Three Dumbest ‘Conservative’ Objections to Patent Reform.”
The Left, along with huge Leftist companies, are pushing to fundamentally transform – radically undermine – the Constitutionally-protected intellectual property known as patents. As the Left is wont to […]
Conservatives advocate a greater mobility for those at the bottom of the economic ladder, targeted tax relief for low-income workers and parents, and greater access to job skills education programs. Yet progressives continue to charge conservatives with doing nothing to address the plight of the poor. Progressives charge […]
The Black Lives Matter movement is a bizarre new phenomenon that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Instead of addressing real issues of racism, the activists focus on a few incidents where a black person has gotten into a deadly confrontation with law enforcement — but where there […]
A currently hip cause is to rail against sentencing pot smokers to jail time. It sounds good considering alcohol is legal, smoking pot is not considered harmful to others, and our jails are already overcrowded, straining taxpayers’ wallets. The only problem is there isn’t a shred of […]
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 […]
