Did Trump Just Harm His Re-Election Prospects By Kowtowing to King Corn?

Last week, news broke that under direction from President Trump, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Scott Pruitt had bowed to pressure from Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) to set a bunch of ethanol-relevant policy to benefit King Corn and disadvantage parts of the manufacturing sector.

Why Don’t We Want More Government in the Internet? IDK…China, Maybe?

Mark Penn Speaks Out on Russian Twitter and Facebook Ads

For reasons that quite escape me, a lot of people have blood oozing from their pores over alleged Russian “troll farms” and allegations that the Russian government bought ads on Twitter and Facebook.

It Would Be Nice if the Media Checked at Least a Little into its Leftist Sources

Our “news media” – a term I use as loosely as is possible – never finds it beneath them to use as “sources” whatever Leftist hacks they can find. Nothing matters – so long as their “sources” help to further their efforts to slag non-Leftists. They care not at all how frequently, how much or how deeply these “sources” have lied.

Net Neutrality is Stupid Policy, Has Never Been Popular – and Needs to Finally Go Away

We have on numerous occasions detailed how titanically stupid Network Neutrality is. It in the early 2000s actually began as four innocuous items – to which no one at all objected.

Those in Subsidized Houses – Shouldn’t Throw Crony Government Accusations

We who understand economics and human nature – realize the omni-directional warping that government causes. For instance, too many people do the subsidized thing – creating massive surpluses, and attending massive losses.

83% Bots: We Told You the Power Grab ‘Comment Period’ is Titanically Stupid

We have rather recently delved into the scintillating stupidity of the government bureaucracy “Comment Period”: “One of the ways these agencies attempt to cover up their unilateral power grabs – is with a veneer of alleged We the People participation. Behold the utter dumbness of the ‘Comment Period.’ “Where some agency of which you’ve never heard – and to whom you’ve elected no one – | Read More »

DC Rumor Mill: CFPB Director Richard Cordray Could Enter OH-Gov Race As Soon As Tonight

Around noon Thursday, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau chief and subject of hot Ohio governor’s race speculation Richard Cordray dropped the Bureau’s much-anticipated short-term lending rule, which critics say could help further his political ambitions in the Buckeye state.
