• Stossel the Fool

    I was so dumb last week.

  • What Now?: Part II

    As the post-election shock of some, and the euphoria of others, both begin to wear off, the country and the new administration will have some very serious problems to face, at home and abroad. How those problems are faced — or evaded — will tell us a lot about the next four years, and about the longer-run future as well.

  • What Now?

    A Hillary Clinton victory would have meant a third consecutive administration dedicated to dismantling the institutions that have kept America free, and imposing instead the social vision of the smug elites. That could have been the ultimate catastrophe — not just for our time, but for generations yet unborn.

  • The Slacker Mandate and the Safety Pin Generation

    News flash, kids: Things aren’t free. Things cost money. And “free” things provided to you by the government cost other people’s money.

  • A Trump Doctrine — ‘America First’

    However Donald Trump came upon the foreign policy views he espoused, they were as crucial to his election as his views on trade and the border.

  • The New Key to Immigration Reform: More High-Skilled Immigrants

    One of the issues President-elect Donald Trump says he wants Congress to act on is immigration. That’s not entirely surprising, given that he spotlighted just that issue, in incendiary terms, after gliding down that escalator in the Trump Tower and announcing he was running 17 months ago.

  • Where to Invest After Trump Wins the Election

    Several expert analysts from Eagle Financial Publciations give their opinion how to profit from the market’s surprising reaction to a Trump presidency.

  • Identity Politics in America: a Post-Mortem

    Here is what eight years of President Obama’s “post-racial” reign have wrought.

  • If We Say We Want Inclusiveness, Let’s Mean It and Practice It

    I am uplifted by Tuesday’s presidential election results because I believe we have a good chance to start turning things around in the country for the better, from economic issues to social issues and matters of national security and the rule of law.

  • Memo to Trump: ‘Action This Day!’

    “In victory, magnanimity!” said Winston Churchill.

  • What Hath Trump Wrought?

    “If I don’t win, this will be the greatest waste of time, money and energy in my lifetime,” says Donald Trump.

  • Donald Trump’s Astounding Victory: How and Why

    Astounding. That’s the best word to describe the tumultuous election night and the (to most people) surprise victory of Donald Trump.

  • President Trump's First 100 Days

    President Trump’s First 100 Days

    Well, that was the easy part. All Trump had to do was vanquish people too stupid to pick up the thousand-dollar bill lying on the sidewalk — smug, smirking, out-of-touch establishment drones.

  • My Final Argument For Trump: Humiliate The Media!

    For every argument the media make against Trump, Hillary’s worse.

  • The Rich and Us

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, having a net worth of $81.8 billion, and Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos, having a net worth of $70.4 billion, are the nation’s two richest men.

  • The Rest of Your Ballot

    The presidency isn’t the only choice next week. There are more issues than “Who’s worse, Trump or Clinton?”

  • Random Thoughts

    There seem to be fewer bumper stickers this year than in previous presidential election years. People may decide to vote for one of these candidates, but apparently they are not proud of their choice.

  • Has Economics Failed?

    It is especially painful for me, as an economist, to see that two small cities in northern California — San Mateo and Burlingame — have rent control proposals on the ballot this election year.

  • The Left’s Vision

    The political left keeps announcing, as if it is a new breakthrough discovery of theirs, that life is unfair.

  • A Fifth Clinton Presidency? Hill, No!

    I keep hearing that Hillary Clinton would be “Obama’s third term.” The math is wrong. Barack Obama served the Clinton crime family’s third and fourth term. Electing Hillary would doom America to a fifth Clinton White House.
