‘Carried Interest’: Let’s Not Increase Taxes on Our Economy’s Engine

Leftism is such an easy soundbite sell. It’s a gaggle of five-second one-liners that seem to make perfect sense – right up until someone applies actual thought to any of them. One of the all-time favorites is – “Tax the rich!” (I’m fairly sure the exclamation point is always mandatory.) They’re rich, they’re evil – they should pay MORE! But let’s now apply some actual | Read More »

Trump and His Commerce Secretary: It Isn’t Free Trade – If They’re Uber-Protectionist

We have repeatedly written about the widespread ignorance/misinterpretation of now-President Donald Trump’s perspective on trade. Way too many people – who are alleged to be able to know better – dismiss Trump as anti-free trade. Or even anti-trade. Behold the Washington, D.C.-New York City Bubble boobery on parade: Donald Trump’s Opposition to Free Trade Trump’s…Free Trade Retreat Donald Trump’s Anti-Trade Rhetoric Trump Trade Moves Chilling, | Read More »

Obama’s IRS 2.0 (or 3.0…4.0?…Or is it…?)

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. And, in many ways, the IRS scandal continued well past its initial exposition date. Here’s a (re)fresher: IRS Targeting Scheme is a Scandal with No End in Sight: “When the Senate Finance Committee released its findings on | Read More »

The NY Times and the Guy Hunting the GOP: Latest in a Long History of Fake News

The New York Times is simply a ridiculous publication. And has been for decades. It is hopelessly, blindly, willfully Leftist. And has been for decades. And to advance their Leftism, they have lied and lied again and again. For decades. Just yesterday, their Editors en toto wrote about the Bernie Sanders supporter who went Republican hunting in Alexandria, Virginia – firing more than fifty rifle | Read More »

The Power to (Over)Tax – Is the Power to Destroy

The late Supreme Court Chief Justice (amongst many other impressive gigs) John Marshall rightly noted “The power to tax – is the power to destroy.” The power to OverTax, of course – will destroy even more. We have in our nation established a very anti-human nature approach to government. We punish things of which we claim to want more – and reward things of which | Read More »

Worse Than Domestic Obama Cronyism? Exporting It Globally

We just narrowly escaped the cronyism-infested eight years of the Barack Obama Administration. If you were a Leftist – the $4-trillion-per-year-government world was your oyster. The biggest bureaucratic favors of your wildest imaginings – were only a campaign contribution away. Cronyism is one of the largest, slimiest critters in the Swamp against which now-President Donald Trump ran – promising to drain and dismantle. Which he | Read More »

The Left’s Desperate Search for Political Enemy Dirt – and Relevance

There’s an old joke. About a little boy standing in the entrance of a huge barn – clearly filled to the rafters with manure. The boy has a shovel in hand – and loudly proclaims “There has to be a pony in here somewhere.” The Left – is this little boy. And their little boy search – is trying desperately to locate dirt on their | Read More »
