Remember the Barack Obama Administration’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal? The media really wish you wouldn’t, which is why they never really reported on it while it occurred.

Fake Democracy, Real Power Grabs: The Bureaucracy ‘Comment Periods’

The Left doesn’t like acquiescing to the will of We the People. They like – to degree that they can pull it off – to PRETEND to acquiesce to the will of We the People. The Left’s agenda has never really resonated with us. So they’ve looked for as many ways as possible to circumvent us – and our Constitutional process of self-governance. Here’s how | Read More »

Government Cronyism – Looking to Stop the Power of Technology and the Free Market

The big government cronyism racket – is absurd. It is a disjointed, discombobulated mess of ridiculous ideas and assertions – put forward in steadfast defiance of the fundamentals of the free market and human nature.

After the Art of the Deal: Enforcing the Deals You Cut

President Donald Trump became President Donald Trump in no small part because he ran against the very bad deals of all sorts that America has spent the last several decades cutting.

Hey Leftists: Racists Threats and Stalking Homes and Families Are NOT Thoughtful Policy Debate

Leftism is a bereft ideology.  It is a certain set of ideas and government policies – all of which are horrendous when put into actual practice.  It pretends human nature – isn’t human nature.  And tries to reshape it – and the humans it imbues – with the fires and on the anvils of government.

Mexico: Bad Trade Deals Are Even Worse – When Nations Violate Them

The “anti-free trade” label is these days blithely thrown around a lot.  Mostly at President Donald Trump – and people who agree with him and his desire to revamp how we’ve long done trade.
