Michael Bloomberg, president, democracy,

Billions Of, By and For Bloomberg

Might Gotham’s gun-and-Big-Gulp-grabber-in-chief catapult to Commander in Chief?  Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, “is actively preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary,” writes Alexander Burns in The New York Times. Bloomberg’s estimated $53 billion could financially pummel even Democratic candidate Tom Steyer, working with a mere $1.6

Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Beer

Hillary’s Hot Sauce — Reflux

The one thing the Elizabeth Warren for president campaign cannot afford is ‘I’m With Her’ redux. Hillary ‘the “her”’ Clinton came off as ultra-phony. She tried too hard to be something she is not — that is, likable and not an elitist. Mrs. Clinton’s attempts to seem normal were transparently

Rich Kids for Ransom

Elliot Ackerman wants peace so badly that he is willing to conscript our sons and daughters into the military in hopes of achieving it.  “From Somalia to Syria, American forces are engaged in combat,” the author and decorated Marine veteran writes in Time. “With recent military posturing against Iran, against

Worse Than Hypocrisy

“You shouldn’t accept any money from a Super PAC,” former Vice-President Joe Biden claims he advised his presidential rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, “because [if you do] people can’t possibly trust you.” Now it must be impossible to trust Mr. Biden. “Joe Biden is apparently dropping his long-held opposition to the

Elizabeth Warren, healthcare, taxes,


Even people who get their information only from major network news know that, in their mad rush to promise free health care, Democratic presidential hopefuls would raise taxes for nearly everybody including the “hard-working middle class.” How do they know? Because at least one of the eager promisers won’t give

Hillary Clinton, Tulsi Gabbard, Russia, conspiracy,

Mrs. Clinton’s Fevered Nightmare

Hillary Clinton’s recent statements linking Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to the Russians — Mrs. Clinton’s current favorite enemy — provided Rep. Gabbard with an opportunity for a return volley, dubbing Mrs. Clinton “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party

npc, march, Health Care, Medicare,

MediocreCare — Guaranteed!

When Senator Bernie Sanders demands that the government “guarantee health care to all people as a right, not a privilege,” does anyone think about how governments currently provide more basic services as rights?  You have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in America — or so

Donald Trump, telephone, phone call, impeachment,

The Democrats’ Wrong Number

“Where’s Hunter?” Donald Trump asks in front of his pro-Trump rallies (and of course on Twitter), referring to Joe Biden’s son and his cushy Ukrainian sinecure.  From the beginning of the Phone Call quasi-scandal, the upshot sure seemed to portend disaster for the Democrats, in general, and Biden’s presidential bid

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Twitter,

Don’t Tempt Her

Scrolling down @realDonaldTrump’s prolific Twitter feed, I cannot help but wonder: when does the president find time to do his job? I am not the only one to wonder. Still, as President, Trump sure is a great . . . troll. “I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the

Kamala Harris, pay gap, lie

The 79¢ Lie

Sen. Kamala Harris successfully bears aloft the banner of Barack Obama. As “a person of color”? Yeah, sure — but mainly by pandering to ignorant ideologues. “Look, women are still not paid equal for equal work in America,” she said recently at a campaign stop. The Daily Wire notes that

deep fake, Donald Trump, Young Frankenstein,

Deep State, Deeply Fake

Is there a good, presumptive reason to believe what the government tells us? Not when it comes from the “intelligence” agencies. One of the more breathtaking developments of recent years has been the transformation of Democratic Party politicians and activists from skeptics of alphabet soup intelligence agencies — CIA, NSA,

Representative Rashida Tlaib, screams, Trump, rally

Are You a Conspiracy Theorist?

Politicians are all over the vaping issue, like packrats on pet food. The House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, C-SPAN explains, held a hearing on the relationship between e-cigarettes and an outbreak in lung disease. Government experts spoke. There was only one empaneled pro-vaping witness, Vicki Porter,
