Global Warming: The Classic Liberal vs. Conservative Argument

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 15:33:51 +0000

Global Warming: The Classic Liberal vs. Conservative Argument   © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Here is the classic Liberal vs. Conservative Global Warming argument. I started it off with this shot across the bow: “Global Warming is an irrelevant non-issue. One can believe the Warming alarmists at face value or believe it to be […]



​The Great NAFTA Health Care Face-Off

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 22:56:33 +0000

​It won’t be single-payer! It won’t be single-payer! Sorry for shouting at Senator Sanders out here on the sidewalk. Here’s what I mean. Like in the case of gay marriage or de facto open borders, the Democratic Party is shifting hard to the left on health care, and dragging some moderate or RINO Republicans with […]



​Trump the Triangulating Pragmatist? It’s About the Y-Axis Stupid!

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 22:16:40 +0000

​”It comes from a recognition that the country largely hates the GOP.” Who said that and why? Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist and The Transom newsletter. Not a Democrat. Possibly populist leaning in some areas. Accused visciously by NeverTrumpers of being racist in the aftermath of Charlottesville because he said the same as what […]



​DACA Harvey & Irma – Congress Loves a Good Disaster

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 16:36:08 +0000

​Let’s say that climate alarmists are mostly right and that their meteorological models are reasonably accurate and that after Irma another huge storm hits the Gulf or East coast. So that 3 large storms hit the USA including Harvey in a matter of weeks. Would the Senate use Irma and Benjy (the name of our […]



Rolling Pardons for Sanctuary Cities

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 22:32:56 +0000

​Donna Carol Voss makes a good point in The Federalist. Sheriff Arpaio was about to go to be sentenced this coming October for defying a judge’s order that set limits on the Arizona police chiefs practice of sweeping up Latinos in traffic stop and searches. He was judged by most people on both sides of […]



Accusation on Page 1; Retraction on Page 27

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 14:07:07 +0000

  Accusation on Page 1; Retraction on Page 27 © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Liberals have mastered most aspects of manipulating an already-sympathetic mainstream media to their advantage, but there is perhaps no liberal skill more highly developed and accomplished than this one: their ability to exploit virtually any situation or occurrence to […]



​If You’re Republican You Can’t Build Good Highways – or Govern

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 23:42:29 +0000

​Is engineering a moral endeavour? Does good engineering require as a pre-condition, good morals? This may seem a rather odd question, but it is has been explicitly raised by some resignations from the National Infrastructure Advisory Council this past Monday. Eight of 28 members of the NIAC resigned, many of them former Obama appointees. Here’s […]



LBJ Ensured the IRS Charges You for Free Speech​

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 22:18:15 +0000

​In America Free Speech can be expensive. What the Founding Fathers rightly put in the First Amendment – freedom of expression – has changed in its details over the past two hundred odd years. But that doesn’t change the essential and vital necessity of their understanding of freedom of thought and expression contained in those […]



​Could the USS McCain and the USS Fitzgerald have been hacked?

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 20:37:56 +0000

​The Pacific Ocean is huge. Just go back in time and ask Magellan’s starving crew as they sailed across what he would call the “horrifying” length of the new sea they had discovered. And some 500 odd years later, it’s true that the shipping lanes in the Pacific are a touch busier. But it seems […]



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 […]
