Fed Chair: Escalating Tariffs Could Pose Serious Economic Threat

    On Tuesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell told members of the Senate Banking Committee that escalating trade conflict could prove to be damaging to the domestic and worldwide economy. Amid pressure to describe the intricacies of the situation, Powell’s testimony steered around direct comments on President Trump’s policies. However, he said rising tariffs (which I explain here) by and on the U.S. have | Read More »

The Biggest Impediment to Better Internet? Local Governments

Thanks to the obscene over-officiousness of the Barack Obama Administration, we have spent much of our time the less decade or so discussing the incredible damage the federal government can do – and was doing – to…everything. Obama’s outsized over-officiousness – certainly warranted the outsized extra attention.  Because his one-size-fits-none government impositions – left no room for anyone anywhere to breathe.  Let alone actually engage | Read More »

Trade Deals – Like Everything Else – Are Immutably Subject to Human Nature

Commercial trade between people and peoples – is subject to what everything else on the planet is subject: human nature. Much of what one should know about human nature – could have been learned in high school.  Life – is high school on steroids. Life has cliques – just as high school did: Jocks, geeks, nerds, spazs, etc.  You may have different group names – | Read More »

There Is So Much Wrong with the Left’s State-Level Pushes for Net Neutrality

Ever since the Donald Trump Administration’s Trump Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it was undoing the Barack Obama Administration FCC’s unilateral, Congress-free imposition of 1934 monopoly landline telephone law on to the Internet – under the guise of the very awful Network Neutrality – Leftists have been flexing the crazy they have long since gone.

The Democrat-Left: Stupid, Insane – and Very, Very Violent

We are in the midst of a seriously, seriously dangerous ramp up by the radical Left.  Not since the 1960s have these people been this riled up, angry – and prone to fits of violence. The 1960s gave us murderous groups like the Weather Underground (founders of which launched future president Barack Obama’s political career) and the Black Panthers – which marred our existence for | Read More »

Taxation w/o Representation. Interstate Commerce Usurpation. Murdered Federalism. Internet Sales Tax

The Supreme Court last week issued a really ridiculous and awful ruling.  In blatant violation of the Constitution’s Commerce Clause and its protections of federalism – and of the “Taxation without representation” foundational rally cry of the American Revolution that preceded it. First – the Constitution violation.  Behold Article I, Section 8, Clause 3: “[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, | Read More »

As NAFTA Re-Crafting Continues – We Must Keep Something Called ISDS

President Donald Trump is thankfully implementing his America First perspective on…everything. If something is good for the US – the Administration does it.  Or does it more. If something is bad for the US – the Administration stops doing it.  Or works to make it better – so it becomes good for US. This is what is happening on the global trade front.  We are | Read More »

America First – Must Include Demanding Foreign Govs Unfreeze Americans’ Coin

President Donald Trump has brought a most welcome America First approach to policy. Aside from the clowns still clinging to this obviously-fake-Democrat-concocted-and-paid-for Trump-Russia-collusion nonsense, it is obvious to anyone paying any attention at all that – no matter whether or not you agree with his policy positions – they are being made through this America First prism. Every policy Trump announces – is presented with | Read More »

Net Neutrality Lie Reminder: Netflix Fakes Service Slowdowns – and Blames ISPs

I was contacted a lot last week – asking for my response to this: Netflix Went Down for Users Across the World in Mysterious Major Outage, Following Net Neutrality Repeal Well that’s an amazing coincidence. Just last Monday was the day the Donald Trump Administration officially ended the Barack Obama Administration’s huge Internet power grab – executed under the rubric of the very awful idea | Read More »
