Too Much Money Chasing Too Few Goods and Services

Inflation can be considered a tax, an especially regressive one, falling harder on those with lower income and/or assets. As we’ve noted previously, the Federal Reserve’s “M2” monetary aggregate began growing significantly faster than the “GDP” measure of economic output in the United States beginning around 2008, amidst the 2007-2009 financial and economic crisis. With […]

It’s About Time We Stopped “Trying Communism”

I don’t know how many protests, solidarity movements, refugees, human rights alerts, economic collapses, and purges are going to get this message through everyone’s heads, Communism is a terrible system of governance. In fact, at this point, we should be consistent. Any government that does not guarantee as to the very justification for its existence, […]

Biden Administration Wants to Silence People They Don’t Agree With

“We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” Those were the words of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki last week, and they should send chills up and down your spine. It’s bad enough that we already have Big Tech playing speech police on a daily basis. Now, the federal government is flagging “problematic […]

New Book Shows Top U.S. General Comparing Trump Supporters To Nazis Seeking A ‘Coup’

Anyone who looked at the events of 2020 and projected a coup attempt onto Donald Trump has no place in senior government leadership, let alone a Dairy Queen serving Blizzards. What better way to know the U.S. military is compromised—aside from racially extremist training and leftist propaganda videos—than when its top officer ignores widespread violence […]

How Democrats Could Steal the Midterms

By now everyone with two working brain cells knows, or pretends not to know, that Democrats cheated on a colossal scale to get Whisperin’ Joe into the White House.  So it’s safe to say that Republicans, having wised up to the Donks’ stratagems and skullduggery, will capture both House and Senate in next year’s midterms.  Right?  Yes.  That is, […]

Fact-Checking 6 Claims at Senate Democrats’ Voting Law Hearing

Senate Democrats took their push to nullify state election laws on the road Monday, holding a “field hearing” in Atlanta to attack Georgia’s recent election reforms and promote their bill to eliminate voter ID and other requirements. Only Democrat members of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee showed up to question witnesses, also all Democrats. […]

Getting Red In Your Ed

It is well known that America’s schoolchildren are woefully ignorant of their national history and government. Majorities of young adults no longer feel grateful to be an American, undoubtedly because they fail to comprehend the precious freedoms to which they were born. So are the teacher’s unions who educate our children concerned about this deplorable […]

Dangerous Infrastructure Bill: Flooding America’s Suburbs with High-Density Housing Projects

This proposal… amounts to “abolishing the suburbs” by making them more like cities. Apartment buildings…. could be built in the middle of any suburban neighborhood, and there is nothing you could do to stop it. A housing project could be built next door to your home. One-acre lots could be subdivided to cram in as […]

The Danger Of Wokeness In Uniform

The surrender to leftist ideology among military leaders endangers all Americans.   Until recently, decades of failed senior officer leadership in a series of disastrous American military interventions, from Vietnam to Afghanistan—operations that compromised basic principles of military leadership and produced a stable of morally bankrupt sycophants in the senior ranks of the armed forces—awakened […]

Implications of the Arizona Audit- Part II

The widening implications will likely depend on whether the results show there has been significant discrepancy or fraud, whether those results are credible and believable, and whether the press actually covers the story and public opinion shifts. Once Republicans believe they have a solid case, then strategies will need to be developed to go into […]

Why Congress Should Demand An Audit Of Biden’s Taxes

The right should pose one simple request to the Biden administration: You want to audit other ‘rich’ people? Why not audit yourself first, Mr. President? A bipartisan Senate working group has proposed paying for new infrastructure spending in part by providing $40 billion to the Internal Revenue Service. But before Congress even considers the legislation, […]
