Make Corporate Welfare Great Again?

 

If President Trump is serious about “draining the swamp,” then he can’t go soft on a government agency like the Export-Import Bank that benefits big business and their lobbyists and regularly generates a plethora of campaign cash for both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The Ex-Im Bank provides loans to foreign governments wanting to purchase […]

Milo-Hating Lefty Crybaby Boycotts Bill Maher, Maher Defends Milo

 

Conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos may not be able to appear at UC Berkeley, but he will be appearing on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” despite a leftist boycott. Left-wing journalist Jeremy Scahill was scheduled to appear on the show but declined when he found out Milo would be a fellow panelist. Scahill said Milo “is […]

Joy Villa Is A Great American!

 

For the first time that I can recall, I’m sorry I eschew awards shows. The other night at the Grammys, singer-songwriter Joy Villa wore a red, white and blue dress that had “Make America Great Again” on the front and “TRUMP” on the back hem. It’s not clear whether Villa is a Trump supporter or […]

Doing their best Orval Faubus impersonation, what appeared to be Black Lives Matter protesters blocked newly sworn-in U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering Jefferson Academy, a public school in Washington, D.C.

How to Lie About Betsy DeVos

 

It would be easy to say that the lies about Betsy DeVos were ineffective since she was confirmed, but the confirmation vote was too close for comfort. The lies had enough heft to cause two Republican defections, Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-NEA) and Susan Collins (R-NEA). Typical of the lies spread about DeVos is Allie Gross’s […]

Do Bank of America, Fidelity, and Schwab Support the Berkeley Violence?

 

A group called Refuse Fascism is taking responsibility for the violence unleashed in Berkeley last Wednesday during a protest over a scheduled speech by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

Liberal Officials Beware: You Will Be Pepper-Sprayed Next

 

What was most disturbing about the violence at UC Berkeley and New York University on Wednesday and Thursday nights was the extent to which actual human beings were targeted. Most left-wing rioters have usually destroyed property, which is bad enough. At most, they typically had one or two incidents of assault. But at Berkeley and […]

Will Mitch McConnell Grow a Pair?

 

Well, Scott McKay is more optimistic than I am. When Senate Democrats confirmed yesterday that they will filibuster President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) responded, “What I would expect from our Democratic friends is that the nominee be handled similarly to Clinton’s and Obama’s first two nominees in their first terms.” Wow.

Trump Can Lower Drug Costs: Here’s How

 

Two of the approaches that President Donald Trump proposes to get the U.S. economy booming again are deregulation and negotiating better trade deals. He should use those same approaches, if he wants to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. In the United States, a drug must first be approved by the Food and Drug Administration […]

Trump and High Drug Prices

 

President Donald Trump has put forward two ideas for lowering the cost of prescription drugs in the United States. At his press conference on January 11 he called for the drug companies to bid for the federal government’s business, while back in March of 2016 he suggested that the U.S. re-import drugs from other countries.
