“Buy American!” – A Protectionist Dialogue.

In light of the recent announcement of Trump’s “Buy American” executive orders, I present a theoretical dialogue between Trump and myself: Trump: “Buy American!” Me: “Noted.” Trump: “Let me rephrase that: I demand you to buy American.” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it’s your duty!” Me: “Why?” Trump: “Because it helps the economy!” Me: “How?” Trump: […]

War… Again: Trump, Syria, and Gary Johnson.

During the last election cycle, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was asked for his policy views on the Syrian Civil War – specifically, what was happening at the time in the city of Aleppo. He replied with a mildly blank stare, “What is Aleppo?” He was heavily derided at the time as an uninformed moron. Me? […]

Trump’s Moment of Truth: Federal Reserve Audit?

A bill has proceeded in Congress to audit the Federal Reserve – the most pervasive fascist institution in the United States. This is not necessarily new.

Caution! A Stock Market Warning.

I have said that I expect a severe economic recession to kick in by the end of 2017. I still believe this. I’ll concede that it may be in 2018. Either way: soon. Read my thoughts on this here and here. Recessions are problematic. You probably don’t need me to tell you that. Employers lose […]

Does “Free Trade” Hurt Americans?

Pat Buchanan is a sharp political analyst. He strikes at the core of an issue more quickly than Marion Barry could light a crack pipe, which is to say pretty quickly. But his grasp of economics is poor. Not just poor: resoundingly bad. In a recent article commenting on Trump’s State of the Union address, […]

Trump Trumped By… Trump? Fiscal Reality Looms.

On March 15th, the present government is going to hit a brick wall: the expiration of the current budget deal. The debt ceiling holiday agreed upon two years ago is going to end, and the $20 trillion hard debt limit is going to smack the government in the face. That means no more debt unless […]

The End is Nigh: Obama, Globalism, and Running Out of Ideas.

Today, Barack Obama leaves office. He will be honored as a great man. But he is also likely to be quickly discarded by his former left-wing Progressive allies. Why? Because there is only one thing that leftists are interested in: power. Obama will shortly cease to have any political power. This is the only thing […]

Trump: U.S. Dollar is “Too Strong”?

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump said this: Mr. Trump said the U.S. dollar was already “too strong” in part because China holds down its currency, the yuan. “Our companies can’t compete with them now because our currency is too strong. And it’s killing us.” The yuan is “dropping like a rock,” […]

God of War: Obama Moving 3,000 Troops to Poland.

Barack Obama, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, set an impressive record with his Presidency: he was the first President of the United States to oversee a state of war for every single day of his 8-year presidency. No other President up to this point has had the honor. In 2015, the Obama Administration dropped […]
