Alas, Janet Yellen Isn’t Supergirl

 

The populism that fueled the rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders came from the perception that the federal government responded like Superman when it saved Wall Street and Clark Kent when it came to helping everybody else.

How the U.S. Can End the Syrian Civil War

 

Bashar al-Assad would not be in power today, without the combined help of the Russian Air Force, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and Hezbollah. Even with Russia and Iran, President Assad has only been able to secure control of 34 percent of the country’s territory and 65 percent of the population. To make things worse, much […]

On her best days, Congresswoman Maxine Waters is just a hypocrite. On a normal day, she is a national disgrace. Maxine Waters didn’t hesitate to call the Trump administration “a bunch of scumbags.” While Congresswoman Maxine Waters can condemn the Trump administration, falsely accuse the CIA of bringing drugs into Los Angeles, and even tell […]
