Obamacare Is Collapsing – Would Ryan’s PCA Do Better?

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 23:06:20 +0000

Obamacare – ok the Affordable Care Act, is that better? – is collapsing, state by state. Younger healthier potential enrollees are not enrolling. The incentives – how much premiums you pay and what kind of deductible you face and what kind of coverage you get – are making them choose to stay away and defer […]

Will Voter Disgust Crush Ticket-Splitting?

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 19:57:24 +0000

What is Guccifer 2.0 up to now? He’s claiming that Trump’s tax returns filed last May ended up “immediately” on DNC servers. And he’s claiming that the Democratic National Committee, in conjunction with media allies, is getting ready to release financial documents relating presumably to Trump’s tax returns. Just in time for the last debate? […]

Two Scandals and An Ugly Choice

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 20:32:24 +0000

How good are you at cryptography? Can you describe how a brute force attack works? Without googling it or going to Wikipedia. How up to date are you on the government’s system of classifying information? A little shaky when it comes to these sorts of matters? Like the overwhelming majority of us? On the other […]

Is Trump Now Burning Man?

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 05:12:13 +0000

Yes, each new revelation (usually an older story) is part of a carefully timed media strategy to discredit Trump. Yes, the NYTimes and the folks at WaPo and at various mainstream media platforms despise Trump, and would love to see him lose badly come November. If even half of these accusations are correct, however, then […]

The GOP Civil War and the Women of Masada

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 22:54:28 +0000

The end of days are upon us. Sound a little too dramatic? Not if you’re a conservative Republican like David French, who recently wrote in the National Review that Christians can only really pray and repent as Trump’s campaign descends into a civil war with his own party. Crisis can mean “a turning” in the […]

St. Louis – We Are Divided; All of Us

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 21:31:30 +0000

Right after the debate, on Fox News, Megyn Kelly’s hand was cupped like an eagle’s talons as she rhetorically pushed back against Laura Ingraham’s downplaying of Trump’s 2005 video. Kelly was referring to Trumps comments about grabbing women, and she was being uncomfortably explicit with her quick but unmistakable gesture, even as her words were […]

The Gang of 30 Unleashes on Trump

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 17:08:47 +0000

Why wait until Friday if you want to be noticed? So a group of 30 GOP former legislators added their names to the NeverTrump universe in an open letter to their fellow Republicans. Trump is neither temperamentally nor intellectually fit to be president seems to be their opinion. The list of qualities of character they […]

David Brooks Buries the Soiled Unlovelies

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 19:41:20 +0000

Have you heard of the lovely society? No it’s not a quaint reference to salon life in the Belle Epoque or the Gilded Age. It’s a philosophical concept courtesy of the once-conservative David Brooks, writing in the NYTimes. Roll up your sleeves fellow citizens and do your part. If you are to be part of […]

Don’t Trust Hillary? Just Look at Trump’s Returns!

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 00:23:29 +0000

The full court press is on. Even if the NBA doesn’t officially start until the 25th, we have the H team hard at work tossing the Tax Trump Story from one pair of eager hands, ready to draw blood at the keyboard, to another. Like an under appreciated point guard, the NYT’s Susanne Craig felt […]

Remember to Go Through Maloney

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 22:28:44 +0000

Just around the time Mary Tyler Moore – make that Mary Richards of course – was moving to Minneapolis, a young college grad from North Carolina moved to NYC and became a teacher. The year Jimmy Carter was elected, she married a banker, having lived through the city’s financial near-collapse. And when the Mary Tyler […]

Does Trump Deserve the Volume?

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 23:39:13 +0000

Panic in the campaign headquarters. Pressure on the candidate. Mainstream Media sounding the alarms. Yes, Hillary’s campaign has plenty to ponder according to the pundits. Is this the media finally turning a more critical eye on the Democratic nominee? Not really. It’s more like an outsourcing of a portion of her campaign strategy and tactics […]

Trump Needs to Let Go of His Brand

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 00:27:09 +0000

As the left, from Vox to Politico and from CNN to MSNBC, delight at what they see as Trump’s poor first debate performance, here’s an idea that Donald Trump could use to boost his next performance. Show that the presidency of the United States of America matters more to you than your brand. Because that’s […]

Obama’s Memo and Aleppo’s Weather

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:09:46 +0000

You’re nearly as dumb as Gary Johnson, who apparently doesn’t need cannabis to go from affable to really weird at the drop of a hat. You know why you are? Because you don’t get Aleppo. Just like Gary, despite his protestations of: oh, yeah, got it. You don’t get it however. Here’s why. Aleppo is […]

Trump Wades Into Tulsa Shooting

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 18:13:24 +0000

The details are different between what happened in Charlotte and Tulsa, and the reaction has been more violent in Charlotte, but certainly angry in Tulsa. And Tulsa is where Trump has decided to stake out a position, by questioning police actions in the shooting of a black man in a strange confrontation involving an abandoned […]

Obama: the Mildly Annoyed Professor

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:15:14 +0000

Terrorism has been a defining force in American politics for nearly two decades now. Like it or not. Bush 43 was going to be the education president. He is now remembered as the president who had to take on the war on terror, like no other president before him. And since, unfortunately. One can argue […]

Panic Amongst Pollsters, Pundits, Republicans, and Democrats

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 23:17:08 +0000

Millennials would rather hang with Gary What’s-a-Leppo? Johnson than Hillary. Trump has for some unknown reason decided to dig up the birther zombie again and annoy mainstream media at the same time with his version of what a press conference is. And Nate Silver just doesn’t know; as he asks us to wait another week […]

Newsweek and NY AG Attack Trump

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 23:48:03 +0000

It didn’t take long. But we’ll see if it has legs and can last. The Hillary camp – and it’s a really big tent, folks all the way from State AG’s offices to mainstream media outlets like Newsweek – hit back quickly to try and divert some of the lousy press HRC has been getting […]

What If the Twitter Video Hadn’t Gone Viral?

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 00:20:56 +0000

Thank you alert Twitter user for your footage of Hillary Clinton having a rough few moments as she was being bundled into her vehicle by the strong arms of her security personnel. Nice that you happened to have a tripod or very steady hands, whoever you were. What if that footage had not happened and […]

Undecided or Won’t Say in North Carolina?

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 21:15:49 +0000

In the new Suffolk University poll, Trump has edged past Hillary Clinton by a slender margin in North Carolina, but well within the margin of error. Ahead none the less. The unfavorables for both candidates are high, higher than their favorables, and as a sort of extension of that, the undecideds are statistically significant. Especially […]

You Are Fringe If You Write About Hillary’s Health

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 21:00:08 +0000

With her campaign plane behind her, Hillary berated the assembled press for their unfair treatment of her, the first female president of the United States. In waiting. Unless the polls keep tightening. In which case, it’s not just Hannity’s fault. It’s the entire mainstream media’s fault. 15 minutes and 6 questions. That’s very efficient, isn’t […]

President Trump on Trump TV

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 21:29:16 +0000

Now that Myra Adams, writing in the Washington Examiner, has let the world know that Trump TV is not just a rumor but a very real option, a new post-Labor Day question must be asked. What if Trump wins? If Adams is right and the CEO and COO of this yet-to-be media empire is in […]

Putin’s Options and America’s Elections

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 20:33:57 +0000

It doesn’t matter who wins the election in November. If you’re Putin, that is. He’s got all the bases covered. That’s essentially the conclusion that John Schindler, writing for Jared Kushner’s Observer, has come to. And this is someone with lots of experience in the security and intelligence areas. While Manafort and others in, or […]

Kayla, Joshua and Caitlan: Raging at a Martyr

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 18:15:28 +0000

Now that Kayla Mueller has been officially sanctified, we can turn our bleeding hearts to a crazed Canadian muslim convert and his American wife in Afghanistan, who have been held in captivity by the Taliban for several years. They went hiking in 2012 in a zone some 40 km from Kabul known to be a […]

Hillary the Teamsters and Some History

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 21:37:09 +0000

Labor is just one big happy family. Just ask James P. Hoffa, Jimmy’s son. And since the late 90’s, President of the Teamster’s. As he was slowly working his way up the ranks as a union lawyer from the late 60’s through the 70’s and 80’s, the Teamsters and other major unions were under mob […]

For Now Hillary Has Diverted the Snipers

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 23:07:58 +0000

If she could just get Jeb Bush to campaign with her, Hillary would have Florida all sewn up, wouldn’t she? They could share the stage and talk about immigration and Common Core and Lincoln and diversity, and what the GOP should stand for. And give a nice thumbs up to Bush 43. Hillary’s game for […]

Immigration: Can Trump Avoid the A-Word?

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 18:33:04 +0000

The Southern border is anything you want it to be. If you’re Erica Grieder, it’s a waterway (where the Rio Grande is the border, that is) that Texans have a historical and apparently ecological right to access. If you’re a libertarian NeverTrump’er, it’s a delusional fantasy to build any structure, and all of that should […]

Smooth Sailing Doesn’t Fly in the 2016 Campaign

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 16:20:39 +0000

One of the many skill sets you need as president is how to fire people. In many ways. Sometimes with effusive praise, especially if they’ve taken a bullet for you. Sometimes with concerned humanitarianism, if the fired subordinate has been a crazy fool. Sometimes with crisp formality if it was really a mess that necessitated […]

George Soros, You’re not the Secret Operating Code

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:36:59 +0000

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, handles lots of money, dispensing it around the world. Billions and billions of dollars. Maybe that’s small change when you’re working up a continuing resolution on Capitol Hill, but in many of the places where the money is apparently spent, it has made a difference. But one has to remember […]

Here Comes Steve Bannon!

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 21:45:20 +0000

So it was Manafort who has had to step sideways and maybe down a few flights of stairs in the Trump Tower penthouse suite. The man who has more political experience than the rest of Trump’s team combined, has been struggling with an Eastern European albatross draped over his elegantly suited shoulders in the last […]

What Paul Ryan’s Big Primary Win Really Means

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 18:54:01 +0000

Now that Speaker Paul Ryan has roundly thumped GOP primary rival Paul Nehlen in his home district in Wisconsin, what does it mean? There has been a fair bit written on how Ryan’s campaign team deftly managed the potential challenges that Nehlen’s surprise run involved. In other words, they managed to easily avoid a repeat […]
