When the Government Sues to Undermine the Constitution

The federal government has spent the last two centuries-plus willfully ignoring the Constitution. With ever-increasing frequency and intensity, the Feds have drifted further and further from their charter. There is no longer even a pretense of pretending to care whether or not what DC wants the government to do – is an expressly enumerated Constitutional […]

The Big Lebowski: New Bogus Russia Nonsense from Obama Deep State Holdovers

America ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution – which banned alcoholic beverages – in January 1920. It would have been obscenely obnoxious – and an unbelievable governmental overreach – to have then begun arresting people for drinking in December 1919, and then working your way back through the calendar. Because in Reality, you can’t […]

The Anatomy of a Mass Media Fake News Lie

The Internet is a wondrous free speech-free market Xanadu. It has revolutionized an incalculable number of things. Life is better, stronger, faster – easier. But like any other tool – a gun, hammer or shovel, for instance – the Internet can be used for things both good…and ill. Which brings us to the legacy media […]

You Know an Idea is REALLY Good – When Government Has to Mandate You Do It

As the DC Democrat Party unilaterally worked to ram through Obamacare, there were roughly nine million red flags alerting us to the fact that it was in its entirety a terrible idea. One of the biggest, reddest flags – was the individual mandate. Obamacare forced you – under penalty of an inexorably increasing fine – […]

Crony Republicans, Re-Recurring Terrible Ideas – and the WORLD Wide Web

In Washington, D.C., bad ideas never die – they just get new Congressional bill numbers. There is no notion so dreadful nor roundly rejected – that an additional dash of crony campaign cash can’t resuscitate it. In DC, the Walking Dead don’t eat long pig – they eat pork. So it is with Crony Republicans’ […]

Oh Look – Trump Is Right on Trade

Now-President Donald Trump has for decades been decrying the very bad international deals – trade and otherwise – that the United States has for decades been cutting. He ran for and won the Presidency – in no small part because of his infusion of this reality into the reality-free world of DC politics and policy. […]

The Left’s Latest Dud: Trying to Recreate the Magic – Almost Never Works

Radio impresario Rush Limbaugh routinely, rightly identifies a consistent feature of the human condition: The inability to recreate the spontaneous excellence of an earlier event. You’ve likely experienced this. For instance, you awaken on a Saturday – and you and your friends decide to pull together a party for that evening. No time for any […]

Paging President Trump: Protect US IP – Or Trade Wars Ensue, and Economies Die

We have an economic nightmare mess exploding overseas – and it’s now making its way to our shores. This is potentially disastrous for our economy – and the planet’s. Both now – and, especially, going forward. At issue is foreign governments royally screwing United States company Qualcomm – in patent enforcement decisions. Qualcomm holds the […]

Wednesday’s Leftist Whine Fest: If You Pay Them, All Greed is Forgiven

Wednesday brings us yet another ridiculous Left protest against President Donald Trump and his reasonable, rational, less government agenda. This tiny, goofy gaggle has dubbed this particular bit of inanity a “Day of Action.” (Though given the huge government, debilitating policies they promote – “Day of Traction” is far more accurate.) As we chronicled last […]

Solar Fannie Mae: Worse Than Subsidizing Fake Energy? Mandating We Buy It

Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis popularized the phrase “laboratories of democracy”: “(T)o describe how a ‘state may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.’” Cities and towns also experiment with policy novelties – serving as even smaller laboratories. For […]
