There is a great deal of current DC fervor to sanction the daylight out of Saudi Arabia.  In response to the kingdom’s alleged assassination of alleged reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

One Thing Way Worse than Too Much US Government? Too Much Chinese Government

Posted on

We’ve said it many times before: Republican President Richard Nixon’s biggest mistake – was not Watergate. Watergate is perhaps the most overrated political scandal in history.  It was a third-rate burglary of some Democrat National Committee offices – in the midst of an election in which Nixon…would ultimately win forty-nine states. What – would Nixon […]

When the Punishment Doesn’t Fit the Crime – and Isn’t Even a Punishment

Posted on

We the People are inordinately tired of watching criminal wrongdoing go unpunished. It is a large part of what we understood – and what then-presidential candidate Donald Trump meant – when Trump politically coined the term “Drain the Swamp.”  Oft when Trump delivered this particular catch phrase – the crowd responded with “Lock Her Up.” […]

Thank God: Another Awful Obama Legacy Item Getting a Trump Makeover

I thoroughly and wholeheartedly endorse California’s efforts to secede.  Imagine how less insane would be our national politics – without California’s millions of Third World illegal aliens and fifty-five electoral votes. Illegal Immigration […]

To Steal or Not to Steal – A Tale of Two Opinions

Posted on

I am a huge fan of informed debate.  I have on more than a few occasions been a part of of official, organized panel discussions with representatives of both sides of this issue or that.
