Saudi Gunman Tweeted Why He Attacked Pensacola

The Trump Administration is bound and determined not to draw any conclusions about Saudi Air Force gunman Mohammed Alshamrani, who killed three people on Friday in Pensacola. There seems to be a palpable fear that anything terror-related would make the Saudis look bad. This could be a problem, since Lt. Alshamrani tweeted right before the attack exactly why he did...

Covering Bombs, Not Bombshells

Anti-Tump badges over an American flag background.
Weeks of impeachment hearings have produced a few sound bites and hundreds of headlines claiming “bombshell” testimony has doomed Trump. As Ukrainegate follows the pattern of Russiagate, anyone who reads beyond the headline recognizes that every alleged bombshell is actually a dud. The impeachment drive is again proving the mainstream media, blinded by #NeverTrump passions, will repeat just about...

Hobbits and Hooligans: Revisiting Jason Brennan’s Against Democracy

In case you couldn’t tell through the inescapable barrage of media coverage, we have an election coming up, which means voters are mobilizing. To most Americans, democracy and voting are the pinnacles of freedom. Your vote is your voice, etc. etc. 2016 threw a wrench in some Americans’ confidence in democracy, though. Did Trump break the system? Rather than...

Trump’s Trade Policy Has Produced Damaging Tariffs but Little Else

Farm exports to China are down, manufacturing job growth has stalled, and prices are up for many goods Americans are about to enter the third full year of President Donald Trump’s aggressive tariff regime, which aims to promote US manufacturing, protect key industries, and prompt other nations to reduce their trade barriers. So, it’s a good time to stop and...

Decrying Income Inequality Is a Tactic to Gain More Power for Government

The 2020 presidential field is saturated with candidates decrying wealth inequality and making the argument to soak the rich. One front-runner, for instance, is constantly denouncing “the millionaires and the billionaires.” Ominously, a New York Times poll found that two-thirds of Americans believe that “wealth in this country should be more evenly distributed among more people.” Now, it is true...

Mexico Won’t Allow US Military Operations Against Cartels

Foreign Minister warns drone strikes would violate sovereignty President Trump’s move to declare Mexican cartels as terrorist groups is potentially going to be complicated, and Mexican President Obrador sought to establish a red-line, that Mexico will not allow the US to conduct cross-border military operations into Mexico looking for the cartels. Trump hasn’t said he will send troops, saying that didn’t “want to...

The Power of the Meme – My Journey

I’m fairly certain the first memes I experienced were on the once famous website Ebaum’s World. I probably didn’t know what to make of them at the time but they were usually funny and I would check back to the site often. After a while I started to see that even though the people who were making them were trying to...

Oppose a Disease at its Beginning

If you give politicians an inch, they’ll take a mile. John Dickinson was one of the leading writers in the early days of the conflict. He insisted that the colonists needed to “oppose a disease at its beginning,” before the sickness could spread. Writing under the penname “A Farmer in Pennsylvania,” Dickinson published a series of essays now known as  Letters...

The Real Bombshell of the Impeachment Hearings

The most shocking thing about the House impeachment hearings to this point is not a “smoking gun” witness providing irrefutable evidence of quid pro quo. It’s not that President Trump may or may not have asked the Ukrainians to look into business deals between then-Vice President Biden’s son and a Ukrainian oligarch. The most shocking thing to come out of the...
