Is Bill Clinton an Asset or a Liability to Hillary or Just Irrelevant?

Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee for the Democratic ticket for 2016 presidential race thought that the one person her campaign could count on was her husband former President Bill Clinton. After all, the 42nd U.S. President is an engaging charismatic speaker who can pack a room. While Hillary is an awkward public speaker who despite […]

The Obama Regime’s Criminal Syndicate

Nearly a decade after the crash of the U.S. Housing market, the Obama administration continues to pursue claims against large financial institutions accused of contributing to the crash. For instance, in the past three years the Department of Justice (DOJ) settled with JPMorgan Chase & CO. in November 2013, Citigroup Inc. in July 2014, and […]

The Test – Who you would choose for the Next President?

“What a good fortune for governments that the people never think.” –Adolph Hitler A letter that is circulating through the Tea Party movement has recently come to my attention and though it is well intended, it is very dangerous when it comes to that in which it is premised upon (Romans 7:21).

Does Captain America’s New Movie Get Government, Law and Liberty RIGHT?

Ya gotta give hefty, even super–powered, props to any super-hero movie that doesn’t content itself with getting action scenes right, nailing CGI or managing cool-looking heroes’ costumes; one that, instead, also plunges headlong — think Spiderman leaping off a skyscraper — into profound themes; questions, perhaps, involving government, law and liberty which have vexed humankind […]

Government = Corruption = Undeserved Wealth = Insider Favoritism

In hopes of learning some lessons, let’s take a tour through the dank sewer of government, the place where malice is rewarded and malfeasance is a stepping stone to success.

Are You Comfortable With The ‘Troika’, Or Are You Ready For The ‘Quartet’?

It has been the longstanding belief of these authors that Obama’s White House, especially its foreign policy penchant for supporting jihadis (both Sunni and Shiite), is run by a troika. The front man of the troika is obviously Barack Hussein Obama, who uses his position as President of the United States of America to cajole […]

Desperately Seeking the Trump Smoking Gun

The 2016 Republican Primary Campaign started out with seventeen candidates. At the time, the media and the Democrats were lampooning the Republican Party for having too many candidates on the debate stage, labeling the GOP playing field a “clown car”.  Now that we are down to one candidate, real estate billionaire and reality television star […]

When Christianity is Removed All Hell Breaks Out

The Necessary and Valuable Economic Role of Tax Havens

Economists certainly don’t speak with one voice, but there’s a general consensus on two principles of public finance that will lead to a more competitive and prosperous economy. Lower tax rates are more conducive to work and entrepreneurship than higher tax rates. Reducing the tax bias against capital formation will improve growth by increasing saving and investment.

Taxing Lessons from Europe for Hillary Clinton (a Supposed Fiscal Conservative)

I wrote yesterday about the Obama Administration’s head-in-the-sand approach regarding the anti-competitive nature of America’s corporate tax system (though maybe fiddling while Rome burns is a better metaphor). Fortunately, some nations have more sensible policy makers. Even in Europe, which might come as a surprise to the pair of class warriors battling for the Democratic nomination. Consider, for instance, what’s happening in Norway. […]

Donald Trump is the Most Hated American Political Figure in America

Is “Capitalism” a Dirty Word and “Liberal” a Good Word?

I’m a proud advocate and defender of capitalism for the simple reason that it is a system that is consistent with human freedom while also producing mass prosperity that was unimaginable for much of human history.

The Healthcare Exclusion Is the Tax Code’s Most Harmful Loophole

  What’s the worst loophole (properly defined) in the cluttered internal revenue code?

The exemption for municipal bond interest is another misguided provision since it makes it easier for states to finance […]
