To Really ‘Make America Great Again,’ End the Fed!

Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher recently gave a speech identifying the Federal Reserve's easy money/low interest rate policies as a source of the public anger that propelled Donald Trump into the White House. Mr. Fisher is certainly correct that the Fed's policies have "skewered" the middle class. However, the problem is not specific Fed policies, but the very system of fiat currency managed by a secretive central bank.

Presidential Apprentice

Two months before joining the government in an entry level position, President-elect Donald Trump has been learning the ropes and is busier than a bartender ten minutes before midnight at a Times Square Applebee's on New Year's Eve.

Recount All You Want, but Mob Rule Will Not Prevail

That the United States is not a direct democracy where decisions are decided by popular vote is a dilemma for Democrats unhinged over Donald Trump's Electoral College win, who are now calling for a recount in some states.

Make our (Costly) Infrastructure Great Again

By his own admission, President-elect Donald Trump is a guy who likes to build stuff: A golf course in Scotland. A hotel in Washington D.C. A great, big beautiful wall on the American border with Mexico.

Trump’s Art of the Spiel

Apparently we were too quick to take Donald Trump at his word during the campaign. After a visit to the White House, a tour of the Capitol and a heart-to-heart with Lesley Stahl, Trump is furiously issuing clarifications. He told Stahl that law-abiding undocumented immigrants are "terrific people," that President Obama is "very smart and very nice," and that Bill Clinton is "very, very, really, very nice."

A Woman’s View

Do you ever consider all the hilarious things that happen in our day to day lives that go right over our heads if we aren't paying attention? We are so consumed with our deadlines, our hardships, our own selves, that we often miss the joy of good laughter.

Beyond the Beltway, Democrats are Even Worse Off

We're all so fixated on what's happening right now in Washington - where Team Trump, shocked by its own victory, is scrambling to form a government with predictable incompetence - that it's easy to ignore what's happening in the states beyond the Beltway.

Anti-Trump Riots and America’s Lost Generation

Watching the recent anti-Trump post-victory riots on television and the temper tantrums on social media, it's become obvious that, without Divine intervention, the ever-fearful Millennial generation will become known as America's Lost Generation.

A Memo to the Trump Administration on Defense Spending

In a disturbing indication of how difficult it would be to bring military spending in line with actual threats overseas, House Armed Services Chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX) told President Obama last week that his war funding request of $11.6 billion for the rest of the year was far too low. That figure for the last two months of 2016 is larger than Spain's budget for the entire year! And this is just a "war-fighting" supplemental, not actual "defense" spending! More U.S. troops are being sent to Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and elsewhere and the supplemental request is ...

Trump Win Predictable, but not to Pollsters

When people tell me that Donald Trump's election as the nation's 45th president shocked them, I reply that they must not be paying attention to what goes on around them. The nation is a mess---the economy is in the doldrums, most of the few available jobs are part-time and low-paying, the infrastructure is crumbling, the massive $20 trillion national debt is getting bigger, the $531 billion trade deficit is poised to go higher---and these are merely the most glaring problems that have festered under President Obama.

What Did Voters Really See?

So, the most frequent refrain since Election Day is that "no one saw this coming." Not the pollsters, not the media, not the Democrats' machine.
