The Part of the Deal

Blog From
May 24th, 2018

As we know, President Trump cancelled his summit with Kim Jong-un today because of the North’s increasingly bellicose rhetoric and silence on setup logistics. The President’s letter calling off the summit is posted on the Internet for everyone to read. Mr. Trump did leave the meeting door open if NOKO cleans up its act. A […]

A Tale Of Two Strategies

Blog From
February 8th, 2015

Back in 2008, campaigner Barack Obama was full of promises of the glories to come if he were elected President of the United States. He would usher in the next utopia on the domestic front. He vowed to increase respect for America on the world stage. According to a Gallup poll taken the week after the election, 76% of the responders believed…

The Real Fuss Over An Imperious Presidency

Blog From
November 23rd, 2014

President Obama finally did what he said about two dozens times before that he couldn’t do. He is “shielding” four million more illegal immigrants from deportation and granting them social services funded by American taxpayers. What Obama once characterized as only possible if he were an emperor, he now justifies because it’s just. Like, just after the election when voters can’t take it…

Obama’s Indecisiveness: Not The Transparency We Can Believe In

Blog From
September 1st, 2014

Yesterday, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, stated that President Obama may be “too cautious”. She was referring to his inability to make a decision about how to handle ISIS in Syria. She was also being polite to the leader of her political party. Obama isn’t too cautious. He’s paralyzed. He’s also way too open about his paralytic condition…

When All You Can Do Is Stupid Stuff

Blog From
August 17th, 2014

As Hillary Clinton said just the other day, “don’t do stupid stuff” is not an organizing principle of great nations. She was taking a jab at President Obama having made, excuse the expression, a dog’s breakfast out of American foreign policy. Last May, in a moment of candor, he did describe his foreign policy as just that. Not a…

That Whacky Obamacare Signup Number

Blog From
April 6th, 2014

On Tuesday, President Obama strolled up to a microphone in the Rose Garden of the White House and declared victory for his signature legislation. He would have made the announcement in prime time but the networks thought better of it, as in better to broadcast their regular line up. So, Mr. Obama was left to pre-empt other afternoon soap operas. When he…

Weeding Out Those Ugly Unintended Consequences

Blog From
March 24th, 2014

Unintended consequences are side effects of actions that were not anticipated. Although most people think of unintended consequences as the negative results of government laws and regulations, the term is neutral. It includes, as well, positive outcomes of both government action and actions of individuals. Unfortunately, big government legislation necessarily contains so many negative, yet unanticipated, outcomes that it puts people…

The Changing Climate of Climate Change

Blog From
February 23rd, 2014

After a period of calm, climate change came storming back into the verbiage of Obama Administration officials earlier this month, including the President himself. In a speech in Jakarta, Indonesia, Secretary of State John Kerry labeled climate change as possibly the world’s “most fearsome weapon of mass destruction”…

Debt Unlimited: Is It Really All That Bad?

Blog From
February 3rd, 2014

We’re about to run up against yet another national debt ceiling. According to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, we’ll hit it on Friday. But, thanks to “emergency measures”, which he’s using, we actually have to the end of the month before we begin defaulting on our payment obligations. Lew urges “quick action” in increasing the permissible amount of public debt.

It seems like only yesterday…

The Federal Government’s Stock in Trade: Is it More than Grasping at Straws?

Blog From
December 30th, 2013

A standard defense of Mr. Obama’s signature legislation is that something is better than nothing. Trying is better than not trying. Giving it the old college try beats sitting on the sidelines. These are banal bromides, of course, but does their theme nevertheless apply to Obamacare?

Like many old sayings, this one has a surface appeal but its true wisdom…
