A Short Word: America Post-Trump

The fact is, as conservatives, we have to begin thinking about America post-Trump.

President Chicken Little

Now that Trump has predictably backed off of his empty threat to declare a state of emergency, let's take a moment to decompress this textbook display of impotent stupidity.

The Economy in Context: January 2019

As rosy as the economic data seems, there's still some pretty serious questions hanging over this economy.

It is Foretold: 2019 Predictions

Happy New Year.

No, Precious Metals Aren’t the Answer

How do you operate a national economy, let alone the global economy, on a commodity so small that an errant box fan could conceivably wipe out an individual's wealth?

A Short Word: The Trump Psychology

If you wonder why Trump tweets constantly to his political base, it's because he seeks to keep them perpetually upset at the things for which he is the solution for.

Our Age of Tyranny and Scandal

Though we are doubtlessly witnessing the rise and fall of a wannabe tyrant and his morally bankrupt enablers, we are far from the end of Donald Trump's degenerate saga.

The Chinese Misconnection

When Trump sat down across the table from Xi Jinping, he mistakenly believed that it was an opportunity to do business. Xi let him believe it.

America’s Napoleon Complex

Donald Trump is the uneducated white, working class American's Napoleon.

The End Of The Bad Old Days

While the economy continues to churn along even into 2018, well beyond what I had predicted, two recent events indicate that the gravy train may finally be coming to a long overdue halt.

Just Grow Up: Now Trumpism Doesn’t Like Nike

Why are these entitled, thin-skinned, red capped, Republican Party goons so triggered?

Busting 4 of Trump’s Economic Myths

[O]ne thing Trump is very good at is claiming responsibility for the things that are going right for the United States economy, but these claims don't actually hold up to any rigorous scrutiny.

A Stranger and the Least of These

While it is reasonable to seek to control the border and to have a just immigration policy that balances the needs of the individual against the realities of national security, those who take the Word and twist it to justify unconscionable terror tactics against mothers and their children befitting the worst villains of the Bible shall pay a price, as will all those who support them while they do so.

Is “Anti-Intellectual” The New Patriotic?

Many simply don't know what to believe anymore, so they believe the avalanche of nonsense just to have something, anything, to believe in.

Piercing the Republican Propaganda

The Republican pundit class is lying right into our faces, pouring falsehoods and delusions right onto the heads of the tens of millions of Americans so desperate to believe in the infallibility of their political movement that they believe everything that they're told.

A Short Word: The Drums of Trade War

With China instituting 25% tariffs on over one hundred American made products, a trade war with China is no longer a mere hypothetical, and with Donald Trump being who he is, he is practically guaranteed to retaliate "ten times harder" (basically another way of saying he'll grossly overreact to this threat to his manhood).

Rustbelt Politics & The Death of America

The only rational path to solving America's Rustbelt isn't going to be punishing the rest of the world for not adopting the same bad policies that have put millions of American workers, largely minorities, out of the workforce for generations and seriously damaged our ability to compete in an increasingly global economy.

The GOP: All-In on the Wild Card

For better or worse, the Republican Party has placed its bet on Donald Trump, and the fate of the party is inextricably linked with his.
