• Which Businesses Will Benefit Most from the New Tax Law?

    Paul Dykewicz explains how two big telecommunications businesses will benefit from the new tax law.

  • Democrats Boo America

    Unlike the president, I don’t call everything “incredible,” but Trump’s State of the Union address was incredible, beautifully delivered.

  • Main Street vs. Wall Street Yields Surprising Winner

    Paul Dykewicz obtained exclusive interviews with Main Street Capital CEO Vince Foster and COO Dwayne Hyzak to learn how they compete with Wall Street successfully.

  • Lindsey Graham, the Uninvited Guest

    Why does Sen. Lindsey Graham have a seat at the table on immigration? Are Jorge Ramos and Vicente Fox unavailable?

  • The Left’s Dirty Little Secret – Cleaned By Rosa!

    One thing no liberal will ever turn down is the opportunity to get a standing ovation for accusing someone else of racism.

  • It Turns Out Bannon Was Trump’s Brain

    In order to prove he doesn’t have dementia, as alleged in a recent book, President Trump called a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday — and requested that it be televised.

  • Al Franken’s Touching Departure

    I never thought I’d see it, but Al Franken has finally gotten around to calling a moving van.

  • Republicans Should Try Doing Something Popular

    When the Titanic struck an iceberg, the crew might have rushed to the storeroom, grabbed the materials and spruced up the ship with a shiny new coat of paint.

  • Why I Secretly Wanted Moore To Lose: Brooks 2020!

    Rep. Mo Brooks was the true Trumpian candidate in Alabama, which is why I endorsed him in the primary (here, here and here).

  • Jerry Seinfeld Endorses Roy Moore?

    Apparently, the GOP is now the party of CHILD MOLESTATION! At least the media tell me that’s the meaning of President Trump’s endorsement of Senate candidate Roy Moore.

  • A Cake is Food, Not Speech – But Why Bully the Baker?

    The conversation about a cake lasted less than a minute but will long reverberate in constitutional law. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear 60 minutes of speech about when, if at all, making a cake counts as constitutionally protected speech and, if so, what the implications are for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s contention that Jack Phillips violated the state’s law against sexual-orientation discrimination.

  • Sex in America, Part 2

    At least liberals are finally telling the truth about Bill Clinton — and just 20 years after it mattered! Of course, considering it took the Democratic Party a century to discover that slavery was wrong, two decades is lightning speed for these moral paragons.

  • The Supreme Court Should Let States Set Their Own Sports Gambling Laws

    American democracy’s comic opera frequently features collaborations of “bootleggers and Baptists.” These entertainments are so named because during Prohibition, Baptists thought banning Demon Rum would improve public morals (oh, well) and bootleggers favored the ban because it made scarce a commodity for which there was a demand that they could profitably supply. On Monday, the Supreme Court will listen — with, one hopes, a mixture of bemusement and amusement — to arguments concerning another prohibition.

  • The NCAA Season Starts with Sleaze and Scandal

    Although it is plausible to suspect this, it is not true that the Crédit Mobilier scandal of the early 1870s (financial shenanigans by politicians and others surrounding construction of the Union Pacific Railroad) and the 1920s Teapot Dome scandal (shady dealings by politicians and others concerning government oil leases) were entangled with Division I college basketball programs. Back then, there were no such programs. About the 1970s Watergate scandal, however, suspicions remain.

  • Another Year of American Hilarity

    Tryptophan, an amino acid in turkey, is unjustly blamed for what mere gluttony does, making Americans comatose every fourth Thursday in November. But before nodding off, give thanks for another year of American hilarity.

  • 2018’s Most Important, Expensive and Strange Election

    This state’s story, which lately has been depressing, soon will acquire a riveting new chapter. In 2018, Illinois will have the nation’s most important, expensive and strange election.

  • Yes, Virginia, Immigration Is Turning The Country Blue

    Hey, Republicans! Did you enjoy Election Night last week? Get ready for a lot more nights like that as immigration turns every last corner of the country blue.

  • Roy Moore is an Embarrassment – Doug Jones Deserves to Win

    But for the bomb, the four would be in their 60s, probably grandmothers. Three were 14 and one was 11 in 1963 when the blast killed them in the 16th Street Baptist Church, which is four blocks from the law office of Doug Jones, who then was 9.

  • Here’s an Idea, Republicans: Repeal and Replace the Tax Code

    The Republicans’ tax bill would somewhat improve the existing revenue system that once caused Mitch Daniels (former head of the Office of Management and Budget, former Indiana governor) to say: Wouldn’t it be nice to have a tax code that looked as though it had been designed on purpose? Today’s bill, which is 429 pages and is apt to grow, is an implausible instrument of simplification. And it would worsen the tax code’s already substantial contribution to “moral hazard.”

  • New Democratic Spin Cycle: Launders Money, Gets Out The Toughest Sleaze!

    The Democrats have two very different profiles. One is their public face of absolute moral purity. They’re just better people than Republicans.
