Media Unwilling to Understand Why America Voted for Trump

The election of Donald Trump sent a considerable chunk of the media into a navel-gazing funk, struggling to discover what went so wrong that a politically inexperienced billionaire businessman could defeat a woman who spent her adult life holding responsible positions in and around government.

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.

Make our (Costly) Infrastructure Great Again

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."

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.
