Is Trump Through?

Given the bravery he showed in stepping out front as the first senator to endorse Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions deserves better from his boss than the Twitter-trashing he has lately received.

Trump Is a Problem

One of the more amusing aspects of the 2016 election was how the pearl clutchers of Conservative Inc. would rush out of their hobbit dens every week, shrieking, “That’s it!

Central Banks Can’t Fix the Crisis

If there’s one myth -and there are many- that we should invalidate in the crossover world of politics and economics, it‘s that central banks have saved us from a financial crisis.

He got 33 years, served about 9 – and is scheduled to be released this fall. Oliver Schmidt – the VW engineer who “cheated” Uncle – is looking at 169 years. He […]

The Military Industrial Complex

The ongoing problems with the F-35 and other military programs, stemming from virtually unlimited budgets, underline the inefficiency of the American military-industrial complex (MIC). In contrast, Moscow develops armaments capable of counteracting the latest technological advances of the US at minimal cost. One of a state’s most insidious mechanisms is the inefficiency of the military-industrial sector. When looking […]
