Stop Maligning the Export-Import Bank. America Needs It.

Recently, pseudoconservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and a few of his Congressional chums, along with the neoconservative Heritage Foundation, have resumed their utterly misguided and dishonest propaganda campaign against the Export-Import Bank, maligning it with a litany of lies. Furthermore, because the Bank’s 2-year operating authorization is set to expire soon, Lee and his fellow […]

Rand Paul is the one distorting Reagan’s foreign policy

  Ronald Reagan was such a successful President – especially in the foreign policy realm – that virtually all Republicans today want to project themselves as the next Reagan and claim that their foreign policy is the same as Reagan’s in order to woo national security oriented voters. One such politician is Sen. Rand Paul […]

The Good and Bad News About The FY2015 Defense Budget

This week, the DOD formally submitted to Congress its proposal of the FY2015 defense budget. The base defense budget would amount to $496 bn, and there would be a roughly $80 bn war supplemental for the final year of the Afghan war, thus bringing the total to around $580 bn, i.e. less than 4% of […]

What Western powers should do in response to Russia's aggression

What Western powers should do in response to Russia’s aggression

  The Russian aggression against Ukraine, initiated by President Vladimir Putin, has surprised many but not me, and should have surprised no one. It is simply an inevitable consequence of the West, and especially America’s, shameless appeasement policy towards Russia combined with a long-running policy of unilateral disarmament (while Russia, under Vladimir Putin, has been […]

Apple stock drops

Apple’s Stock drops on underperforming iPhone Sales

Apple announced earnings today and it wasn’t what analysts had expected to hear – the tech giant missed expectations and gave lower future guidance. Apple sold 51 million iPhones during the last quarter vs. analysts expectations of 55 million units. The company also announced that it expects to bring in $42-44 billion in revenues. Analysts […]

CNN spins Obama's failures on the economy .. again

CNN spins Obama’s failures on the economy .. again

CNN.com’s Annalyn Kurtz starts out her article with a strong headline that plants the blame for a floundering economy squarely where it belongs, but then arranges factors and symptoms in an odd order to soften the blow. The emboldened headlining paragraph reads: Five years into his presidency, Barack Obama is still falling short of his […]

Shock: EPA Administrator Pushes Job-Crushing Climate Regs But Is Incapable Of Supporting President’s Warming Claims

Shock: EPA Administrator Pushes Job-Crushing Climate Regs But Is Incapable Of Supporting President’s Warming Claims

In a hearing yesterday on climate regulation, Senator Sessions pressed EPA administrator Gina McCarthy to support the President’s statements on warming which are used to justify massive proposed administrative actions which would hurt millions of workers. McCarthy proved unable and unwilling to support the President’s claims despite being the central figure crafting and implementing EPA […]

Latest Jobs Report 'Very Bad'

Latest Jobs Report ‘Very Bad’

Directly contradicting President Obama’s claim yesterday that the recovery is “very real”, the latest jobs numbers show an employment situation that even White House friendly MSNBC had to call “ugly” and “very bad.” From a political perspective, there is a silver lining – the unemployment rate, which most news outlets report on, dropped to 6.7% […]

American Capitalism & The Illusion of Laissez Faire

To draw from an opening phrase, in the beginning, there was capitalism. More accurately, at the beginning of our Constitutional Republic, government was committed to limiting – drastically – it’s footprint in the new American marketplace. Americans were free from the tyranny of government interference leveled at the former colonists at the hand of King […]

Rebuttal of William Hartung’s blatant lies about the threat environment

The leftist “BreakingDefense” website has recently (on Dec. 12th) published yet another utterly ridiculous leftist screed, this time by ignorant anti-defense hack William Hartung from the far-left “New America Foundation”, an organization that seeks to turn America into a socialist, militarily weak country. In that garbage screed, Hartung falsely claims that: 1) The world is much […]

Rebuttal of anti-nuke hacks' lies about US nuclear weapons spending

Rebuttal of anti-nuke hacks’ lies about US nuclear weapons spending

The leftist “National Defense Magazine”, which has often published utterly false propaganda screeds on defense issues, has recently published yet another one of this kind: an article that falsely claims US nuclear weapons spending is poised to skyrocket and is exempt from sequester. Even worse, that garbage screed uncritically repeats the lies of several extremely […]

The Opportunistic Politics Rolls On

Just as the American people begin eying the torches and pitchforks, readying their maps of Washington, DC, the establishment politicos have set themselves to brazenly cover their butts yet again. This time, they are proposing a way to absolve themselves from tough votes on raising the debt ceiling. In the aftermath of our current President’s […]

Quantitive Pain

Quantitive Pain

Ben Bernanke out, Janet Yellen in. But, don’t worry, the same failed fiscal policy will continue chugging along. For those playing catchup, since 2008 the Fed has been using a practice called “Quantitative Easing” or QE. Since the interest rates have already been at or near 0%, it’s the Fed’s way of inflating the money […]

Federal Government: Embarrassing to the Point of Painful

As the so-called “government shutdown” drags on, one thing is hard not to admit: the Obama Administration is acting in a manner that is attempting to extract the maximum amount of pain on the American people. While many are wondering how it came to this point, those of us who actually paid attention in Social […]
