Can’t Anyone Take a Joke?

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 14:31:57 +0000

Can’t Anyone Take a Joke? © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. We have two adult daughters. Both are married with children of their own. One of them lives overseas in Italy (don’t ask, it’s a long story, but it gives us a great place to visit), the other lives 10 minutes away in the […]



​A Day or Two to Get Immigration Right?

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:12 +0000

The Grand Immigration Debate has begun, under a deadline that may not be deadline, and with several competing plans, some of which we don’t have all the details yet. And it all may be for naught in the end anyway, as anything that can muster 60 votes in the Senate (which means at least and […]



Please Don’t Blame the Liberal

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 13:51:53 +0000

Please Don’t Blame the Liberal © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Why is it that liberal politicians and liberal causes always seem to escape severe criticism and close scrutiny while their conservative counterparts are continually fighting off one allegation after another, no matter how fanciful and misleading those allegations might be? The standards to […]



​A New Chapter in the Trump Russia Saga Gets Opened Up by the GOP

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 22:55:24 +0000

The Democrats have moved their retreat to the Capitol complex. Which means they’re not moving anywhere over the next few days. Which means that maybe, or even likely, a shutdown will be avoided with full-year defense funding balanced by Community Health Centers and a lifting for 2 years of spending caps. In other words with […]



The “Real” Russia Collusion: Oil

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 14:00:56 +0000

The “Real” Russia Collusion: Oil © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Russian collusion is indeed a major issue threatening the well-being of our country. It’s just not the Russia collusion that’s been bandied about in the news for over a year. No, it’s Russia colluding with OPEC to intentionally raise world crude oil pricing. […]



Pieces of the Same Puzzle: SOTU, DACA, FBI

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 13:53:08 +0000

Pieces of the Same Puzzle: SOTU, DACA, FBI © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. There are three issues swirling around in the news lately that may appear to be unrelated: The recently-delivered State of the Union (SOTU) address, the ongoing controversy over the DACA immigrants, and the about-to-be-released FBI memo regarding the basis of […]



​Code is Law – Social Media and Our Collapsing Institutions

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 11:39:21 +0000

Warren Henry is the pen name of an Illinois attorney who writes an annoyingly compact and nuanced email that I receive. Annoying to me, because apparently his purpose is to “question his priors” and his emails often contain enough OTOH’s to leave one begging for a positive affirmation that does so in no uncertain terms. […]



​FBI Deputy Director McCabe’s Terminal Leave, Howie Kurtz’s Book & That Memo

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 02:28:16 +0000

I’m guessing that Howie Kurtz doesn’t spend as much on grooming as Michael Wolff does. And he likely will never have Hillary Clinton read from his book at the Grammy Awards. But if I had to decide which book – Kurtz’s Media Madness or Wolff’s Fire and Fury – has better journalistic standards, it wouldn’t even be close. And […]



​Trump’s Offer – How Much is a Dreamer Worth?

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 21:03:31 +0000

Where were you on Sunday, May 25th, 1986? I wasn’t there, as in holding hands from one end of continental America to the other. I was somewhere else. But never mind. Hands Across America apparently linked around 6.5 million people from one coast to the other, raising money and awareness though for exactly what isn’t […]



​What Would it Mean if There Was a Secret Society in the FBI?

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 23:59:26 +0000

A Starbucks in suburban Virginia. Maybe one of the ones near Arlington National Cemetery. Five men in their forties and early fifties in jeans and windbreakers huddle in the parking lot. The tallest one – really tall – tells a worried-looking younger man, the youngest of the group: I swear to God, I will never, […]



​Angry Phone Calls in Maryland & Revenge Porn Leaks

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 19:31:51 +0000

From David Frum’s Philip Roth-like cover story in Atlantic few days after President Trump’s election – one that echoed Roth’s The Plot Against America – to Chelsea Handler practically pleading and insulting on Twitter with America’s military brass to launch a coup last summer. From the anarchist and resistance protests on Inauguration Day that left […]



If Democrats Take the House, They’ll Impeach Trump

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 14:08:16 +0000

If Democrats Take the House, They’ll Impeach Trump © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Historically, the first mid-term elections in a new president’s first term result in major losses for the President’s party. The most famous recent example was in 1994, following the 1992 election of Bill Clinton. In spite of Clinton’s oratory skill, […]



​Science-Based Google Gets Medieval on James Damore

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 17:36:05 +0000

Forgive me. I am so prejudiced. So, so biased that I did not even realize that Otherkin is a word, and that it is much more than a word. It is a subculture, apparently, where people decide they’re like fish. Or dragons, which seems to be a popular choice. Like, for example, a yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin. Otherkins […]



Democrats Are All About Winning, Not Governing

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 14:20:58 +0000

Democrats Are All About Winning, Not Governing © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. It’s been said that we have two major governing parties in this country, the Democrats and the Republicans. Each party has a different, broad-based approach to managing the country: The Democrats believe that Government-created, taxpayer-funded programs—implemented from DC—are the best way […]



​Would it be President Oprah? Or President Winfrey?

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 21:40:38 +0000

Are you scornfully offended over the allegations in Fire and Fury? Because of what Trump’s administration perhaps, possibly, maybe did in its first months in office? Or are you incensed because Michael Wolff does things like misspell “public” as “pubic” on what seems to be more than one occasion in what is a rushed and […]



Sometimes Late is Worse Than Never

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 13:31:49 +0000

Sometimes Late is Worse Than Never © 2018 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. It seems like timing is everything in life. Job opportunities, investments, political initiatives, travel schedules, etc.—things can work out to maximum advantage or with disastrous results depending on a small shift in the timing of the event. This is certainly true in […]



​President Trump Scorches Bannon While Manafort Fights Fire With Fire

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 00:20:22 +0000

This was a brazen act, a defiant challenge to the powers that be that was slapped down with a swift ferocity within a short while of it’s being released to the public. Oh yes, and also today on Wednesday there’s news about Steve Bannon’s spat with President Trump. But let’s return to the first case: […]



​Coming to Terms With Tom Petty

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 22:39:49 +0000

Shall I talk about the top twenty 2017 tweets of President Trump? How about Alvin Kamara’s awesome Santa Cleats which have resulted in a fine by the NFL, delivered in an envelope to the New Orlean’s Saints running back? It looks like those 32 yards he ran for in the Christmas Eve game are going […]



​The Anti-Mueller Feedback Loop

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 00:03:44 +0000

The Hezbollah crime syndicate that was let off the hook by pressure and slow-walking or stonewalling by the Obama administration. At least until the Iran Deal was in place. Next to nothing in mainstream media. The evidence that is slowly accumulating on the very real possibility that the “insurance policy” FBI agent Peter Strzok mentioned […]



Random Thoughts on Recent Happenings

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 17:34:42 +0000

Random Thoughts on Recent Happenings © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. No. 1—The Tax Bill Buried away in a postage stamp-sized small parcel of this bill was the authorization to –finally!—open up the ANWR region for oil exploration. If you’ve paid attention to this issue over the last, oh, 30 years or so, I […]



​Would You Trust Peter Strzok’s Insurance Policy?

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 22:34:21 +0000

About a week ago, writing in National Review, Andrew C. McCarthy rose to the defense of his former profession as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York: a prosecutor in other words. His point was that political bias or passion cannot possibly be a reason for disqualifying a prosecutor or an […]



Emotional vs. Logical Voting

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 20:14:23 +0000

Emotional vs. Logical Voting © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved.   There are often hard dividing lines between the reasons voters favor one party or candidate over another. One on hand, there are the concrete policy and philosophical reasons. Stances on issues such as abortion (euphemistically referred to as “choice”), gun control, illegal immigration, […]



​Yes, God is in Control Roy

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 03:35:35 +0000

Yes Roy, God is in control. If I may quote the good book: A man’s heart deviseth his way, but the Good Lord directeth his steps Proverbs 16:9 Many of those telling you to fight on can quote the Bible with far more facility than a rather unchurched conservative like me, admittedly. And there is […]



I’ve Got Good News and……

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 13:34:26 +0000

I’ve Got Good News and I’ve Got Bad News © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. There are lots of important stories in the news every day, but the truly fascinating thing is way that they’re covered and the positive/negative spin that’s assigned to the major political groups. Economic news is certainly a significant political […]



​Alabama Dreaming – Roy Moore’s Race & Dreamers & Funding Government

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 00:02:55 +0000

Any bill that funds the governments business requires 60 votes in the Senate. That means that 60 minus 52 = 8 Democratic Senators will need to sign on to any funding bill the GOP puts forward in the upper chamber. And, unfortunately, it’s wiser to write out the formula rather than say that 8 Democrats […]



​Roy Moore’s Senate Race & The Professor Who Started a Firestorm

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 02:42:23 +0000

Tuly Borland is an associate professor of philosophy at Ouachita Baptist University, apparently located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, a little south of Little Rock. Borland has caused a firestorm with an article in The Federalist entitled: Why Alabamians Should Vote for Roy Moore. It will likely infuriate you or just disgust you, or make you very uncomfortable. But […]



​Of Donuts & The Battle Against The Administrative State

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 13:13:01 +0000

My first question regarding the showdown at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is this: If you are a CFPB staffer who quickly took Acting Director Mulvaney’s offer of a Dunkin’ Donut and trundled up to his office to partake, will you go on a Democrat black list? Will you find your career as a beltway […]



Donald Trump’s Crimes

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 15:59:21 +0000

Donald Trump’s Crimes © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. President Trump is indisputably guilty of many crimes against the societal and political norms of this country. These crimes are profound and grievous and they shake the very foundations upon which acceptable Presidential behavior has always been based. His actions and demeanor are so abhorrent […]



​Matters of Pain and of Thanksgiving

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:45:16 +0000

Around the world, from Colombia to China, from Denmark to South Africa and from New Zealand to Uruguay to Canada, euthanasia, or Physician Assisted Suicide, is now legal. In America there are a handful of states as well, with Oregon as the first one to legalize assisted suicide. Now the state of Victoria, in Australia, […]



​Senator Franken and Ethical Wanking

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 21:19:33 +0000

Louis CK liked (and surely still likes) to expose himself to women, often it would seem, with zero consent on the part of the unlucky and harassed co-workers. So did Harvey Weinstein. Remember Anthony “The Messenger” Weiner? He almost seems like a long lost innocent fool compared to what’s being brought to light every day, […]
