A Budget to Shout About

 

What hypocrites liberals and the media are. For weeks on end they’ve been beating up Trump for not taking the initiative on the $10 trillion debt build-up under Barrack Obama or the runaway entitlement programs that could bankrupt our nation. Now that Trump has unveiled a budget that does both of those things, they are […]

The Growth Doves: Saying No Instead of Yes to 4 Percent Growth

 

Growth Doves. That’s what I call the liberal economists and political commentators who say that the U.S. can’t achieve 4% growth. It’s a ridiculous claim — disproved by history — but they are clinging to it. The reason is obvious. THEY couldn’t get to anywhere near 4% growth with their Keynesian nonsense so they think […]

High Tax, Big Spending States Are Out of Money

 

Governors and state legislators say they are running out of money again, and many are demanding tax hikes to close budget gaps. Here we go again. The cycle in state capitals from Albany to Sacramento is always the same: spend when times are good, tax when times are bad, and repeat. More than half the […]

What I Learned at the Women’s March

 

By sheer coincidence, I found myself on the Washington Mall on Saturday morning and so came face to face with the thousands of marchers protesting Donald Trump’s election. As far as I could see, these were solemn and peaceful rallies. The women expressed heartfelt fear and opposition to the Trump policies. Just 24 hours earlier […]

Conservatives Must Rally Behind Scott Pruitt for EPA

 

Environmental groups have declared war against Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Don’t be surprised if Mr. Pruitt’s nomination hearing this week degenerates into a three-ring circus of obnoxious and disruptive Big Green antics, the new M.O. of the left these days. Pruitt’s nomination and the case brought […]

Welcome to the Party of Trump

 

I stirred up some controversy last week, when I told a conference of several dozen House Republicans that the GOP is now officially a Trump working class party. For better or worse, I said at the gathering inside the Capitol Dome the baton has now officially been passed from the Reagan era to the new […]

Hillary’s Enablers

 

The Never Trump snobs on the right are a strange lot. They not only predict that Donald Trump will lose the election. They WANT him to lose to Hillary—perhaps because they will feel vindicated. They are more closely aligned with the far left in the Democratic Party than the grassroots conservative activists of the Republican […]

New York Times Paints a False Picture of Prosperity

 

The New York Times is now officially putting opinion pieces on the front page. Consider Monday’s article entitled: “Millions in U.S. Climb Out of Poverty, at Long Last.” This is an amazing headline given the real state of the economy for the working class. Yes, according to newly released census data, incomes for middle class families […]

Hillary and Obama Want to Make Dying Even More Expensive

 

If Hillary Clinton wins the election, a lot of bad things will happen on taxes, not least of which is a big hike in the death tax. Hillary wants to apply the death tax to smaller estates and raise the tax rate to 45%, which means that when you count the state estate taxes, the […]

The Republicans’ Sore Loser Caucus

 

I’ve heard a lot from the Never Trumpers inside the GOP who say that Trump violates their “conservative values.” Most of them were Bush and Kasich supporters. So I have a question: Isn’t keeping your word a “conservative value”? Jeb Bush and Kasich and many of the other candidates took a solemn pledge to support […]
