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 […]



Never Mind Collusion – It’s Now About Process

Fri, 26 May 2017 17:04:34 +0000

Ok, this is not good and is very troubling in fact. Byron York writing in the Washington Examiner a day or two ago, points out that the Russia Investigation is now a far more dangerous thing for President Trump. Never mind the surprisingly Reagan-like budget the White House has released. Never mind Trump’s speech in […]



The Great Bozeman Incident and Escalation in America

Thu, 25 May 2017 18:10:03 +0000

What shall we call them? The Gianforte Tapes? Does that sound just a little Nixonian? For all you public-hearted Democrats like Connecticut’s Jim Himes. Democratic Representative of the people of the good state of Connecticut. Who has helpfully de-escalated a handbags incident in Bozeman between Gianforte and Guardian journalist Ben Jacobs. By saying that all […]



Never Reveal What a Russian Hacker Can’t Steal

Tue, 23 May 2017 21:22:02 +0000

Have you heard of Automated Indicator Sharing capability? No? Well, rumors are that the Trump administration is hoping you get to find out a little more about this intel-sharing program run through the Department of Homeland Security. It apparently involves intelligence sharing between several intel actors in the international community. Does it include Russia? That […]



Ross Douthat Demands the 25th – Domenech Differs

Fri, 19 May 2017 16:38:44 +0000

We’re back at the 25th amendment it seems. Thanks to the NYT’s Ross Douthat, who has followed up on fellow, so-called conservative David Brook’s assessment of President Trump as a child, with the only possible solution according to Douthat: remove President Trump from office by using the 25th amendment. The presidency has become too imperial […]



What’s in a Name? Business and Politics

Wed, 17 May 2017 13:56:49 +0000

What’s in a Name? © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. Naming. The final frontier. Either Marketing has identified a brilliant long-range strategic opening that will revolutionize everything or Sales has won their argument and we’ll be producing a “me-too” fast-tracked defensive response product to counter our biggest competitor’s latest gizmo. Either way, Industrial Design […]



What Was Revealed? What Should Be Asked?

Tue, 16 May 2017 22:31:09 +0000

If there is indeed a very unfortunate ISIS double agent – perhaps in Jordan whose King received a phone call from the White House during the past day or so it is reported – who is being or has been tortured to death because of the latest leak about Trump and the Russian ambassador and […]



Trump’s Tweets on Comey and the Need for An Independent Investigation

Fri, 12 May 2017 23:10:24 +0000

There are important reasons why Trump was elected President, that have to do with how the country deals with it’s rural and urban divides. Even as broad labels like rural and urban or coastal and heartland bely enormous diversity within even individual regions in America. These reasons may not matter much longer if President Trump […]



Comey, Putin, Fusion and Steele – Now That’s a Party!

Tue, 09 May 2017 20:13:19 +0000

The Senate is not just the next pitstop for the TrumpHouseCare healthcare bill, now that it’s cleared the first hurdle. But there also is – among other things – that ongoing Russia investigation that seemed to be the only thing that mattered mere weeks ago. And a few days back. there was a very interesting […]



The 2020 Democratic Bench

Mon, 08 May 2017 12:38:18 +0000

The 2020 Democratic Bench © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved. It’s never too early to speculate. The Democrats are fired up for the 2020 Presidential election in a way they haven’t been in years. The pall of Hillary Clinton’s loss to the supremely unqualified, fraudulent shell of a candidate that was and is Donald […]



You Can’t Have It Both Ways

You Can’t Have It Both Ways © 2017 Steve Feinstein. All rights reserved.

Do We Want a Bi-Coastal Media Bubble?

Wed, 03 May 2017 23:26:55 +0000

Warren Henry makes a great point in his recent analysis of America’s infamous media bubble. No, there’s no quotes here around the phrase: media bubble. Because it is what it is. A big bi-coastal bubble. Here’s what Henry said in a newsletter a few days back: It’s worth noting that for many years, journalism was […]
