President Trump Needs to Dump the Obama Holdover Puerto Rico ‘Fiscal Control’ Board

We have spent the last year-plus repeatedly stating that President Donald Trump’s biggest error – has been not having made many, many more people leave government after he arrived. This is true not just in Washington, D.C. – but anywhere on the planet the federal Leviathan rears an ugly tentacle. Like, say, in Puerto Rico. With it’s Barack Obama-seven-appointee-laden, ridiculously named “Fiscal Control” Board. Noted | Read More »

We Need to Fully Populate FTC Leadership – to Stop Residual Obama Awfulness

Now as anyone who knows me knows – I am not one to lightly call for more government in any way, shape matter or form.

Net Neutrality and Government-Run Internet: The Left’s New Excuse for an Awful Old Idea

A month ago, the Donald Trump Administration was on the verge of undoing the Barack Obama Administration’s ridiculous huge government imposition on the Web.

Does Amazon’s Bezos – the World’s Richest Man – Need So Much Government Cronyism?

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos – is doing ok. Jeff Bezos Is the Richest Person in History: “The Amazon CEO’s net worth reached $105.1 billion Monday, according to Bloomberg’s billionaire tracker.

California Climate Freaks Aren’t So Freaky When They Have to Pay for the Freakiness

Let us begin this exercise with me reiterating my wholehearted and total support of California’s effort to secede from the United States. They can take their Sanctuary State status, their resulting Third World culture-and-wealth gap, their $1.3 trillion total governments’ debt, their massive government employee pension shortfalls, their wildfire-exacerbating environmental laws and the rest of their Hollywood, Silicon Valley uber-Left nonsense – and get out. | Read More »

The World’s Global Trade Slush Funds – This Isn’t Free Trade

We have oft detailed and analyzed the fake-ness of what has for decades passed for “free trade” in Washington, D.C. DC has for half-a-century-plus removed all government impediments to our market for every other country on the planet.

Next on Net Neutrality: Democrats Will Campaign on Reimposing Huge Government

Before last year’s year-end tax reform success – there were in fact precedent legislative achievements by this Congress. Behold the Congressional Review Act (CRA): “The law empowers Congress to review, by means of an expedited legislative process, new federal regulations issued by government agencies and, by passage of a joint resolution, to overrule a regulation. “Once a rule is thus repealed, the CRA also prohibits | Read More »

EPA Secretary Pruitt: The Eco-Nuts Will Never, Never Like You

In the great Aaron Sorkin television creation “West Wing,” very accomplished fake president Jed Bartlet goes in for a brief bit of therapy. During which the following exchange occurs: Bartlet: “It’s not good for a person to keep setting goals?” Psychologist: “It probably is.

Reversing Obama, Trump is Protecting and Thus Promoting Intellectual Property

The Barack Obama Administration was eight years of absolutely awful – in innumerable, incalculable ways. Obama had every one of the very many tentacles of the Bureaucracy Leviathan – actively attacking the private sector. The Donald Trump Administration is thus far, thankfully, the anti-Obama Administration. Undoing so very much of the precedent awful. Obama – Obamacare. Trump – kills the awful Obamacare individual mandate. With | Read More »
