• Government Regulations Likely to Backfire Again


    What is the easiest way to kill an industry – any industry? The answer is to inject government into the equation. Government has long been a thorn in the side of American business. And it is also the answer to lessening competition for those crony corporations who, through donations and graft to politicians, are able to virtually lock out up-and-comers with a better mousetrap. As I’ve stated many times – the government takes it upon itself to pick winners and losers, as it has done for decades. READ MORE...

  • Germany should leave the euro


    Among the most troubling imbalances in today’s global economy is the massive German external current account surplus. Yet stuck within the Euro, Germany is unable to allow its currency to appreciate without at the same time making the currency it shares with those hapless economies like Spain and Italy appreciate as well. To square this circle, Germany would be doing both Europe and the global economy a great service if it were to now exit the Euro.

  • Under the Gun, Loose with the Facts


    Months after appearing at Sundance, Under the Gun debuts to the general public on Sunday through the cable channel and streaming service Epix. Directed by Stephanie Soechtig and narrated by Katie Couric, the documentary strives to explain American gun politics, with a special focus on post-Sandy Hook activism for gun control.

    It will be hard for anyone—and it was certainly hard for this father of an 18-month-old—to watch the footage collected here of parents lamenting the deaths of their children. The filmmakers deserve credit for making the issue of gun violence resonate. And to be sure, Under the Gun makes some legitimate points. I myself am sympathetic, for example, to the ideas of expanding background checks and making the crime-gun-tracing system more efficient. READ MORE...

  • White Privilege, Really?


    White Privilege: we see this a lot today, especially coming from the Democratic Party. We, as are many whites that have worked extra hard to obtain what they own, are insulted by this idea that, just because a person is white, he is privileged.  It may have been true before modern day opportunities opened up, but today, if people work hard, they can obtain anything they wish.  It is the work that all cannot find today, tossed away by the “free trade” ideologies that have moved the well-paying jobs out of the United States.

  • Law tops politics for Obamacare, at least in one court on one day


    The rule of law was strengthened yesterday. But the rules of politics remain in play.

    The Obama administration’s continuing efforts to rewrite and re-interpret the legal requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) hit a new roadblock in federal district court yesterday. Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ruled that advance payments to insurers of cost-sharing reduction (CSR) subsidies for certain lower-income enrollees in Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges were never appropriated by Congress. Oops. She therefore enjoined any further reimbursements until a valid appropriation is in place, but the judge also issued a stay of that injunction pending any appeal by the parties. READ MORE...

  • Target’s CEO is off America’s Radar


    “And they had the American people believing that they were the victims….”

    Have Americans now become so demoralized that they do not even realize the severity of those who are transgressing the law and what it is that they are clearly attempting to promote? (Jeremiah 5:21) They are making our innocent the prey to sexual predators.  This is what Target stores are now attracting.

    Friends, I have spoken thousands of times, from public high schools to colleges to tea parties, television, and radio across the country.  If anyone were to even suggest the things that Target and the President of the United States are attempting to advocate by force, it would not be long before that person was thrown into a prison cell for a long time.
