We were all told that 2021 would be a better year for the country, but the first two weeks could hardly have been worse. The left is out to discredit not just President Donald Trump and his indefensible behavior since the election but also his ideas. They are triumphantly saying that free market conservatism is dead and that the era of big ...Read more
We are now almost one year from the dark days when the coronavirus first hit these shores. Why are the politicians' making the same policy mistakes today that they made nine months ago? The 300,000+ deaths are an act of nature, but the virus's death and despair have been compounded by acts of man -- i.e., foolish politicians.
Haven't we learned...Read more
Nearly everyone has seen the classic movie "The Shawshank Redemption." Well, it turns out there is a real life "Red" Redding, the character played by Morgan Freeman. He is in prison in Alabama. He has been there for nearly 40 years. He was guilty of his crime: a murder he committed as a teenager in a drug operation. But so many people who have ...Read more
Democrats and their liberal economic advisers obsess about income inequality. Will someone please tell them that no act in modern times has widened the gap between the rich and the poor more than the lockdowns going on right now?
Diane Yentel, the president and CEO of the leftist National Low Income Housing Coalition, said, "The majority of the...Read more
When import tariffs are under discussion in Washington, D.C., they typically revolve around rates of 5% to 25% on foreign goods.
But what about duties on imported household items that can reach 300%, 500% or even 900%?
Those are the tariff rates that some in Congress and the Trump administration propose on imported bedding products and ...Read more
Judging from the fake news media's collective primal scream this weekend, you would think the American economy were lying flat on its back in the intensive care unit. Yes, the economy has been battered in blue states that have masochistically shut down their hometown businesses. But in most red states that are keeping commerce flowing despite a ...Read more
It's not exactly clear how it happened. No one expected it, least of all the media and pollsters. But that promised big blue wave of Democratic victories across the country turned instead into a red tidal wave from coast to coast. Most progressive ballot issues in the states -- from tax increases to racial preferences -- also came crashing down....Read more
Here we are in the midst of the second wave of a once-in-a-half-century pandemic, with the economy flattened and millions of Americans unemployed and race riots in the streets of our major cities.

Let's be honest: The Democrats and the media want the economy to crash before Joe Biden enters the White House in January. They have been rooting against the economy for four years now.
The problem is the economy isn't crashing and burning -- just the opposite. The pandemic lockdowns flattened the economy earlier this year, and there's lots of ...Read more
Think back to one year ago this month. America was at peace. American troops were coming home from the hotspots around the world. Incomes and jobs were skyrocketing, and Americans had made more wage and salary gains in three years under President Donald Trump than in the previous 16 years under Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama. The swamp ...Read more
Joe Biden has said he wants to be president of ALL the states and that he doesn't see red states and blue states. But his economic policies are a de facto war against the high-growth red states of the South and the Sunbelt. We are talking about states such as Texas, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona.
The central idea behind ...Read more
Why is the stock market so high? I get asked this riddle every day.
The standard answers we hear these days are that the market is anticipating another $2 trillion Donald Trump-Nancy Pelosi stimulus bill (either before or right after the election) and investors are craving another drink from the federal firehose. Deficit spending has apparently...Read more
Joe Biden keeps claiming to be a centrist Democrat.

Think again. Let's look at what's actually in Biden's ...Read more
