Washington state’s I-594 has massive money pouring into it, because it’s apparently the only gun-control measure on the ballot this fall anywhere across the country. There are actually two dueling gun measures in the state. The first one, I-594, the Washington Universal Background Checks for Gun [...]
Most political eyes now are turned to whether the Republicans will take, or the Democrats hold, a Senate majority. Meanwhile what may be a comparably important election will be conducted, probably next month, mostly out of the public eye.
This is the race between Rep. [...]
Government is an organism just like any other. Just like any other, its first priority is self-preservation. Its second is self-expansion.
Government expansion requires money. Government doesn’t earn any of its own – it must take ours. Hence – taxes. Since governments’ desire to grow [...]
Reza Aslan effectively provides us with a perfect Marxist (or at least materialist) analysis of Islam (if not of other religions). Or at least Aslan does so when he’s rationalising or explaining the systematic and large-scale violence done by Muslims almost every single day in at least [...]
There is a growing sense in the country that America is in decline. It is not a slow, prolonged deterioration stemming from some inherent defect, but rather a sudden precipitous fall, pointing to a failure in leadership. In fact, a solid majority of Americans now question this [...]
Uber.Com. AirBnB.Com. TaskRabbit.Com. What are these websites about, and why are they so controversial?
Let’s be clear: these websites, and others like them, are online hubs for what is best described as the emerging “freelance services industries.” The service providers you find through these websites are most [...]
It was back about 15 or 20 years ago, more or less, that Devvy Kidd was making headlines along with one Joe Banister in challenging the federal income tax. The matter interested me because I was practicing income tax law, and would have liked nothing better [...]
Since the Obama administration was voted into power, twice, his declared focus has been on the economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, health care (Obamacare). The results?
After pushing through a one trillion dollar spending bill, the economy has been flatlined for half a decade with [...]
Obama’s efforts to accommodate illegal immigrants have invited a torrent of illegal-immigrant youth to stream north to the U.S. border. A much quieter revolution has taken place inside the Pentagon. The president and his administration now will begin placing teenage illegal immigrants in America’s military and under [...]
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is in the fight of his political life. He’s survived an onslaught of attacks from Democrats and their left wing friends in the media. And he doesn’t get the credit he deserves for putting Wisconsin’s economic house in order.
But as his [...]
All too often, instead of being the keepers of the law, state bar associations flagrantly violate the law instead. They get away with this because they are controlled by powerful judges and affluent left-wing attorneys. Most often, people are too terrified to take on the [...]
The latest White House security breach begs a serious question: how serious is the Secret Service about protecting the president?
The secret service has been tasked with protecting the president since 1901. In the 114 years since then, they have protected democrats and republicans, in wartime and [...]
Conservatives and Libertarians inherently have little faith or trust in government. We know the institution is inherently flawed – and self-serving.
Government violates the Wallet Rule. Which is:
You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You go out the [...]
As stated in the preceding column, here, eminent labor economist Jared Bernstein recently called, in the New York Times, for the dethroning of “King Dollar,” claiming that the reserve currency status of the dollar has cost the United States as many as “six million jobs in 2008, [...]
The most common statement about today’s elections is that “elections don’t matter!” Yet, never has there been a moment in history when it was more critical for every AMERICAN to vote very carefully!
The reason can be stated in a single sentence… Because every non-American and anti-American [...]
“There was a time when you knew who the bad girls were,” someone close to me once said. “Now you know who the good girls are.”
And I hear that all three of them are beside themselves over today’s state of affairs.
“Lena Dunham: I Was [...]
Or did they? Why would Scotland or any other land mass want to separate from the mother ship. Mainly because they are unhappy. So who is unhappy? Probably less than the majority. Did you know that only a third wanted to separate from the king during the [...]
Recent analysis conducted by Bloomberg Government concluded the federal government has spent $2.1B (yes, billion with a b) on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) enrollment system. Peter Gosselin, a senior health-care analyst at Bloomberg and lead author of study stated “the way [...]
With the Congressional general elections just a few weeks away, the battle for control of the U.S. Senate has become a real horse race. Although establishment Democratic senators are outspending their Republican Tea Party challengers by millions of dollars to try to win re-election in multiple key races, those challengers are staying very close to [...]
KRRC Chief Executive Officer Marcus Carter
Gun ranges are frequently targeted by left-wing activists in the government, and sadly, one is finally about to be wrongly shut down. This is alarming, because it marks [...]
Jeff Bezos is a transcendent Internet entrepreneur. He understands the way the Web works in a way few others do. He sees around the curve of the Earth just a little further than do most of us.
To wit: Bezos started in 1994 Amazon.com.
(T)he world’s largest [...]
These days APS could stand for Astroturf Political Support. During the solar debate of 2013, APS operatives bought thousands of Twitter followers from Russia, and anti-solar letters poured into the Arizona Corporation Commission without verified email addresses.
The tactic isn’t new or original. There is [...]
James Pethokoukis, the Dewitt Wallace Fellow and “Money & Politics columnist-blogger” for the American Enterprise Institute, is a frequently interesting analyst and polemicist … when he doesn’t mar his commentary with unseemly snark. That snark factor rose to radioactive in his recent connivance, at AEIdeas, in a [...]
