Are Democrats the No-Growth Party?

 

Amidst the latest email turmoil inside the Democratic National Committee, another scandal of sorts has emerged. Democrats don’t have any growth message. None. My friends at the American Enterprise Institute reported last week that the Democratic platform is silent on “economic growth.” Every poll shows that the economy and jobs are the voters’ top two […]

Hillary vs. Trump on Energy

 

It hasn’t gotten much attention but both presidential candidates have now enunciated their energy strategies for the country. Start with Hillary. She’s all in on green energy — Europe-style. She says within 10 years she will subsidize 500 million solar panels. (Solar City must be loving this corporate twinkie.) She also says within 20 years the […]

Hypocritical Hillary

 

What an amazing speech in Columbus by Hillary Clinton. She started off by telling the American people what is patently obvious: ‎People are working harder and longer just to keep their heads above water. And to deal with the costs, the everyday costs, the costs of basics like childcare and prescription drugs that are too […]

Republicans: Stop Whining and Lead

 

Well, it turns out Annie had it wrong. The sun won’t come out tomorrow. That was basically the message from Fed chief Janet Yellen last week when she acknowledged the economy is doing more poorly (again) than previously hoped. The Fed admitted that sluggish growth that caps out at 2% is with us as far the […]

The Stupid Party Keeps Getting Stupider

 

In the last month or so both of the presumptive presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said stupid and even offensive things. Trump as we all know, because we’ve heard it repeated by the media one thousand times, questioned the impartiality of a federal judge because he is of Mexican descent. Dumb. Even […]

‎Sierra Clubbed

 

Why do donors give money to the Sierra Club? Are they trying to strangle the American economy? The liberal green group is celebrating its “victory” of putting America’s major coal producers out of business — to say nothing of the tens of thousands of miners placed in unemployment lines. Several thousand more mining jobs were […]

School Choice Now More than Ever

 

It’s the only alternative to ever more destructive Democratic-run inner-city schools. Last week the government issued a jaw-dropping report telling us that segregation in public schools is getting worse not better. The study by the Government Accountability Office that the percentage of schools with “racial or socioeconomic isolation” has nearly doubled (from 9 to 16 […]

This Is a War We’re in, Damn It

 

The misplaced priorities of the anti-Trump crowd. My friend and mentor, Heritage Foundation founder Ed Feulner has always said that in the war of ideas there ‎is no room for pacifists. Even more so in a cultural war. Why do so few conservatives get that? The left does. That’s why it is winning. Let me tell […]

Google The Word Stupidity

 

Obama and Hillary eagerly join Europe’s second-raters in monopolizing that trait. Last week the European Union declared war on Google — one of the most successful American companies of all time. Instead of the U.S. Government rushing to the rescue of this Silicon Valley‎ legend, the Obama administration piled on. No wonder our economy isn’t […]

Instead of the U.S. Government rushing to the rescue of this Silicon Valley‎ legend, the Obama administration piled on. No wonder our economy isn’t growing. Here’s the story in a flash. Europe can’t compete with […]
