High-Paying Annuities for the Liberal Political Portfolio

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 12:41:50 +0000

  High-Paying Annuities for the Liberal Political Portfolio © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. As the lines separating popular culture and politics continue to blur to the point where they are nearly indistinguishable, some things remain steadfast and predictable to liberal politicians and their mainstream media sycophants. The word “cliché” is too mild to […]



If Legislating in June Was Tough, Wait till September

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 00:07:46 +0000

The problem isn’t really that President Trump has claimed that he dissolved the Manufacturing Council and The Policy and Strategy Forum, rather than the fact that the business leaders that until just a day or two ago made up its members, were resigning and were ready to fold it up. This is just another media […]



Can Erik Prince Convince Voters to Pay for His Army in Afghanistan?

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 20:54:05 +0000

Do you know what PMSC’s are? Private Military and Security Companies. Like Blackwater USA, which was sold by founder Erik Prince to an unnamed group of investors and is now called Academi. And while Blackwater was founded in the late 90’s, private armies have been around for ages, literally. But since the end of the […]



North Korea – Mike Chinoy Thinks Trump Is Crazy

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 18:48:05 +0000

Reunification is such a beautiful concept, shimmering like a vision in front of the minds’ eyes of academics and diplomats. No, not reunification of South Asia, where partition in the 40’s led to the terrorist-sponsoring state of Pakistan and the flotsam of Bangladesh, two thorns in the side of the world’s largest – if flawed […]



Is the NSC Turning the Dispostion Matrix on Itself?

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 21:59:24 +0000

One can assume that the National Security Council had so-called kill lists long before the Obama administration formalized the process with the unnervingly named Disposition Matrix. What exact process within this Disposition Matrix gets someone on a kill list is not made public for very understandable security reasons, but apparently John Brennan had a lot […]



When Martial Virtue and the Administrative State Combine Forces

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 18:55:30 +0000

John Marini is professor of political science at The University of Nevada-Reno. He worries about Hegel and Bismarck, as it applies to America’s administrative state. Tom Nichols is a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College. He worries about our current admiration for martial virtue as a bulwark against civilian instability, […]



Tax Reform – Do the Washington Shuffle

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 11:45:11 +0000

You can’t cut spending. You can’t cut spending. Got that? Now go crazy on tax reform. You can call it tax cuts if you want. And maybe a few targeted taxes will actually get cut. As long as it’s revenue-neutral. Which means as long as it doesn’t add to the deficit. Which means that you […]



The Missing Weapon at Dunkirk

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 20:15:17 +0000

The Missing Weapon at Dunkirk   ©2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved.   Although most people under 40 are astonishingly unknowledgeable about it, a great worldwide armed conflict known as World War II took place from 1939-1945 in the European and Pacific regions. It is relevant and important to know and understand because the outcome […]



Why Was Debbie Wasserman Schultz Employing a Criminal?

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:15:04 +0000

Who is Imran Awan? A former (he was employed up until Tuesday by Wasserman Schultz) IT employee of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and previously several other Democrat members of congress, who is now released under “high-intensity” supervision (involving curfew and a restriction on his ability to travel and including a GPS monitor he has to use). […]



Fusion GPS – News As Private Label Content

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 19:46:59 +0000

Never mind Anthony Scaramucci’s fairly successful transition to White House Communications Director. Never mind Spicer’s abrupt resignation. Never mind the White House’s communication team, period. They’re not the real players as far as the news cycle – especially the Russia story – goes. It’s at communications shops like Fusion GPS with it’s co-founder Glenn Simpson, […]



Trump’s Withdrawal from Paris Agreement a Huge Non-Event

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 14:09:37 +0000

Trump’s Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement a Huge Non-Event   ©2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved.   President Trump’s recent decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement has been cited by his critics as proof of his callous ignorance of critical environmental concerns in favor of his big-business colleagues and partisan […]



Sessions Vs Microsoft – Two Very Different Ways of Getting Justice

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 20:56:49 +0000

Jeff Sessions might tough it out as AG, despite receiving fire from all sides: The left, especially the radical Southern Poverty Law Center, decry his supposed racism based on a biased interpretation of a decades-old comment that more than likely was innocent than revealing of any true prejudice. There’s also a rather silly and yes […]



The BCRA Is Dead – Long Live Single-Payer??

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 18:34:28 +0000

What a shock. It looks like the Better Care Reconciliation Act, or BCRA, is about to be buried, along with the AHCA. Senator Mike Lee was signalling skepticism, and he has now come out against it. And so has Senatory Jerry Moran of Kansas. Both GOP of course. What Moran said was interesting: … if […]



Get Used to Pronouncing Russian Names

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 23:25:16 +0000

There is a way around so-called whataboutism. The pointing out of similar sins committed by Democrats as a response to charges that Trump’s team may have colluded with Russia. A charge that is far more weighty now than it was a week or two ago. And that way is to ensure that any and all […]



A Left-Wing Activist Takes on Multiculturalism As an Absolute Good

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 19:43:28 +0000

There’s a horrifying article in The National Interest by Cheryl Benard, herself a refugee activist and author who comes from a rather left-wing background, on the wave of brutal sexual assaults in Western Europe. An alarmingly high percentage of these assaults are committed by young male refugees from Afghanistan. Benard goes into a lot of […]



Keep Ben Rhodes on His Phone and Keep It in the Ground

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 18:49:25 +0000

How long has Ben Rhodes known about the now infamous Donald Jr. emails, before he released them, or spoke of their contents, directly or through an intermediary, with the NY Times? Ok, that question involves a couple of assumptions, it’s true. First, Ben Rhodes is probably who has been coordinating leaks of damaging information over […]



President Trump’s Speech in Warsaw

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 16:28:53 +0000

Let The Daily Beast gleefully call President Trump a “snowflake” president for heading to Warsaw before attending the G20 Summit in Hamburg. A more reasoned analysis comes from a former Obama administration official – Wendy Sherman, former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the former administration. She has this to say about the president’s […]



The DNC Server Senators Want to Get Their Hands On

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 17:01:43 +0000

As President Trump and Putin meet in Hamburg, Germany at the G-20 summit, and as President Trump continues to resist admitting that Russia may very well have interfered, or attempted to do so, in last year’s election and during much of the 2016 campaign, there is another question emerging. Why did the DNC refuse to […]



Healthcare – What GOP Senators Should Keep in Mind

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 18:43:57 +0000

The BCRA is a modest reform of Obamacare that curtails the growth in Medicare spending over the next decade (assuming a future Democrat administration and Congress don’t cancel these modest attempts at slowing the rate of growth) and loosens the mandates, although it does keep a sort of penalty for going without insurance for several […]



I’m wrong, you’re wrong

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 12:45:08 +0000

I’m Wrong, You’re Wrong ©2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. The Democrats have a good thing going. It’s unclear exactly how they arranged it or why it is that no one has really noticed it before and called them out on it. But they are very clever and they deserve full credit for pulling it […]



Yes! You Should Think About the BCRA

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 18:09:13 +0000

Oh joy oh joy! We get to talk about health care again. So. We now have the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act – that’s BCRA – and it’s a watering down or subsidizing up of the American Health Care Act – that’s AHCA – which itself was a clear start, but nothing more than a […]



FANg’s Property Rights and Free Speech

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:18:43 +0000

The Daily Beast lament that the Democrats have yet to “crack the code” for turning the resistance (to Trump of course) into political victory. What if they have the code but the code is wrong? The resistance will not accept the legitimacy of President Trump’s election. Whether they be DOJ officials or intel community analysts […]



Just Get Someone

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 14:19:20 +0000

Just Get Someone © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved.   The November 2016 election of Donald Trump has so incensed the liberal mainstream media and the Democratic establishment that they’ve become virtually unhinged emotionally in their zeal to delegitimize and torpedo his presidency. Far from “coming together as one country after a hard-fought election […]



Will the White House Have to Wait Mueller Out?

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 18:57:47 +0000

Over at thecipherbrief.com – the intel communityish newsletter with a heavyweight line up of expert contributors – John Sipher (no it’s not his site), a former CIA analyst, gleefully sets up a Catch-22 that many in the intel community hope leads to some way to impeach Trump. After outlining the difference between a counter-intelligence investigation, […]



The Process Idol – a D.C. Tragedy

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 22:11:52 +0000

Process where is they sting? Everywhere if you’re not careful. Ok, no that’s not a quote from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. But it may just be that process – that idol worshipped in the halls of Congress and throughout the labyrinths of many a government department or intelligence agency – is in fact a jealous idol. […]



Leaks – or What Made Us Stop Watching Mulder and Scully?

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 13:04:22 +0000

First it was class warfare. The first wave of marxism was all about eliminating private property rights and ownership in order to control the means of production and liberate the working class. By the latter half of the 20th century, the concept of liberation struggle (usually violent) was extended to gender, then race, then even […]



Made out of Mettle?

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 12:56:11 +0000

Made out of Mettle? © 2017, Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. I don’t know if it’s a male-female thing or not. Probably somewhat—I’d venture an off-the-cuff guess and say that nearly every guy thinks about this from time to time, but probably far fewer women give this any thought at all. Some do, no question, […]



Perception is Reality

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 22:27:00 +0000

Perception Is Reality © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. “Perception is reality” is a truism in most areas of human experience, but perhaps more so in politics than any other realm. Zealots on all sides know that if they can create an enduring, indelible image—whether positive or negative—in the minds of the populace, that […]



Andrew Cuomo Shows the Way Forward From Paris

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 17:05:29 +0000

Yes it must be tres jolie to fly to Paris and save the world from a possible 1.8 C increase in temperature over a multi-decade period. And then indulge in some of the City of LIght’s notorious (and no doubt notoriously expensive) temptations. But we shouldn’t assume that climate lobbyists and experts are quite at […]



NATO Heads of State Smirk in the Middle of a War

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 16:12:47 +0000

Donald Rumsfeld was right. Europe is old. Perhaps not as old a culture as China’s, for example. But the continent is buried beneath its history, its wars, its dead. And that means all the ghosts that haunt Europe often cause European states individually and collectively to fight the last war. So the question is: is […]
