CEO of America, Inc?

Don Surber hit on something, maybe something important the other day. Let’s take a look. His inauguration speech was not that of a politician trying to be a statesman — there was no talk of any torches being passed on to a new generation. He simply laid down the law. He used the occasion to […]

Happy (Belated ) Birthday, Uncle Billy

Day late and a dollar short, as usual for me. Yesterday was Uncle Billy Sherman’s birthday. While I missed it, I suspect he would have approved of my post. Arguably, Uncle Billy is the man who won the Civil War, although he needed cover from Grant in the Army. But the people that admired his […]

Interegnum

Not in the classical sense, of course. Not for a second is the US Presidency vacant. That is why the Vice President is sworn in first. If something had happened to Obama and Trump yesterday, Pence would have simply taken over. As nearly always, the founders provided for all possibilities. Here is, what President Trump […]

Ken Martin vs. Jason Lewis

In this article, DFL State Party Chair Ken Martin says that “Democrats will focus more on policy as they try to hold Lewis to just one term. ‘It certainly will be a huge target for national Democrats and, of course, for us here at the DFL. It’s still on paper a 50-50 district.’” That’s a […]

A Bit of American Leadership

Sometimes that’s all it takes to change the world. Recently, Paul Bonecelli, wrote in The Federalist: President-elect Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson is clear evidence that Trump wants to change U.S. foreign policy and its posture in the world. For him, arguably no other choice would do but of an outsider with a record of setting […]

Trump: Greatest imaginary jobs president God ever created

One of the most frustrating things about Obama during his eight years in office was how he manipulated economic numbers to make it look like his policies were working. From unemployment to jobs created, Obama turned the manipulation of data…

Video Saturday

So, it’s Saturday. How about a video round up, of some others views. Let’s start with Pat Condell   A bit harshly stated, perhaps, but I can’t say that I disagree with him. The Right Angle guys have something to say, as well.   And a bit on fake news, and where it comes from. […]

Seriously but not Literally

I again quoted whoever it was that said we take Donald Trump seriously but not literally again last evening. It is true, we do, we voted for him because he looks to us like a real outsider, who is his own man, not an owned man of the progs. It was exactly the same impulse that […]

Irrelevant Trump Wingeing, and Some on the Free Market.

Yesterday, Jan Hansenn in comments proposed that we are not logical in our hopes for Trump, that others fear him, not because he may succeed but that he may damage the country, and finally that his business career is not all that successful. He also referenced sites that I consider mostly fake news, the New York Times, […]

Why the media missed the Story of the Year

Salena Zito’s article turns the spotlight on the MSM, aka the Agenda Media, to highlight why the media got this election badly wrong. Early in the article, Salena wrote about the NY Times, saying “Take The New York Times’ public editor’s laudable call for more diversity in the newsroom. ‘The executive editor, Dean Baquet, is […]

About this new Cabinet

A bit more about Trump’s cabinet, and why I too, think it very exceptional. From Stephen Hayward I tweeted out a few days ago that so far, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior level and cabinet picks are to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1981, and would find the approval of Calvin Coolidge. Naturally I wasn’t […]

Time for Liberation

One of the more interesting things here in the last year is that our Dutch readership has increased to the point that it often is higher than the UK, and occasionally approaches that of our US readership. It’s interesting, and I have no real handle on why, although you are certainly welcome here. This is, of […]

‘If Russia and Saudi Arabia lead, rest will follow’…

or so says the Saudi energy minister on this historic oil deal. Well, maybe they will. But what if North America doesn’t follow? Let’s see, he’s talking about On Saturday, twelve non-OPEC countries, including Azerbaijan, Oman, Mexico, Sudan, South Sudan, Bahrain, Malaysia, Equatorial Guinea, Bolivia, Kazakhstan and Russia, agreed to cut oil production by 558,000 barrels per […]

Examining the Iron Range’s ‘victory’

Now that Resolution 54 has been defeated and labor leaders are experiencing a mini-Kumbaya moment, it’s time to examine what the Iron Range won yesterday. I’ll return to that in a bit but it’s important to set this up properly. Rick Nolan apparently gave a speech that set the mood for the vote, saying “Nobody […]

Crony Capitalist Mike Pence does convincing George W. Bush impersonation

  It turns out that Vice President-elect Mike Pence is an extremely talented individual. For instance, did you know he can do a pretty convincing impression of George w. Bush? Not bad. In fact, pretty darn good. Unfortunately for America…

Engineering Club Sensible

By outlook, if not degree, I’m an engineer. My basic question is always, “Will it work, as designed, and can we build and run it on budget (or below)?” As far as I’m concerned, it’s what built the world we live in. It has nothing whatsoever to do with good intentions, it has much indeed […]

Democrats’ fundraising follies

It’s indisputable that 2 of the 3 biggest losers this election were Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. The DNC picked Mrs. Clinton essentially before their primaries or debates, mostly because they fell in love with her name ID and her fundraising ability. They also picked her out of fear of the Clintons’ retribution. After another […]

Environmental activists’ tactics

This article should get everyone’s blood boiling. In it, Mother Jones activists highlight how the Sierra Club is sabotaging families and businesses. Specifically, Debbie Sease, the senior lobbying and advocacy director at the Sierra Club, told Mother Jones that “her organization’s strategy lies in playing defense by filing legal challenges, galvanizing the public, and using […]
