The Socialists are Coming 

In response to the Democrat Party's embarrassing display in the five "critical" special elections in 2017, inevitably party "leaders" will conclude that the party platform must move farther left. This response is inevitable because Trump is a non-ideological centrist, formerly a Democrat and currently surrounded by registered Democrats; thus a party platform aimed solely at ...

POTUS Improving

As a quick follow-up to my Dear POTUS Trump post, Trump's Iowa speech shows what Trump is capable of. Even before firing Comey he was improving; and in consulting his inner circle before firing Comey he showed improvement. Now he needs to SHUT UP with regard to the special counsel.  In this speech he shows ...

Often, voters make day-to-day decisions that are in direct conflict with their political rhetoric and/or voting pattern. Talk ...

Trump’s Paris Speech

As stated yesterday, exiting the Paris Climate Accord is precisely what the global populist revolt called for: A giant middle finger to the disgustingly arrogant, elitist Obama/Merkel-led global liberal order that disdains free market capitalism and American exceptionalism.  In the US, free trade and illegal immigration pale in economic relevance to the Paris Climate Accord, ...

Climate Change Insanity

Per usual, NYT and WSJ reporting on the Paris Climate Accord (PCA) this morning is well-representative of both sides of the issue, with the NYT hyperventilating about the devastating global effects of an American exit with little empirical evidence to back its claim...and the WSJ calmly walking thru the case for why, perhaps, the PCA ...
