How Washington Helps the Rich and Hurts the Poor

In my new book, The False Promise of Big Government, I reveal the right argument against big government. Progressives have created a massive and intrusive federal government by repeating this mantra: big government is necessary to help the “little guy” - the poor, working class, and middle class. There’s only one problem with progressives’ favorite claim: IT’S A MYTH! [more...]

This is What a Rigged System Looks Like

In May, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed a lawsuit by the families of the victims of Benghazi against Hillary Clinton. Judge Jackson decided that the families couldn’t sue Hillary either for wrongful death or for defamation. That isn’t too surprising as Jackson is a former Clinton donor who had been appointed by Obama. And a Clinton donor should never have been ruling on a Clinton case. But now Judge Jackson will be presiding over the Paul Manafort case. Presiding over Manafort’s indictment is Judge Deborah A. Robinson whose most prominent previous case was the Berger trial. Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton’s former National Security Adviser, stole classified documents about the terror failures of the Clinton administration, hid documents under a construction trailer, lied about taking them and destroyed some of them. People have gone to jail for doing a whole lot less with classified documents. But not Clinton associates. [more...]

Another Terrorist Attack, Another Whitewash of Islamic Jihad

After a Muslim immigrant from Uzbekistan murdered eight people on a bike path in New York, the usual “expert” pundits and commentators began recycling the same cliches they always use to avoid a hard, uncomfortable fact: these killings are perpetrated by Muslims who are faithfully following fourteen centuries of Islamic precept and practice. Sixteen years after 9/11 we still don’t get the reality of Islamic jihad. Indeed, we can’t even get simple facts straight. The NYC terrorist’s cry of Allahu Akbar, the traditional Muslim battle-cry, is consistently mistranslated. [more...]

The ‘Paradise Papers’

On November 5th, 13.4 million electronic documents were released holding confidential information on how the wealthy funnel their money through offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes. The papers were hacked from Appleby, a law firm that specializes in offshore banking deals across the world. The papers explicitly show how wealthy individuals use offshore companies and accounts - “tax havens” to avoid paying taxes. Among those named in the Paradise Papers were the President of Columbia, Juan Manuel Santos; the current U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, and Queen Elizabeth II. The papers also name multinational corporations that funnel money through foreign companies like Facebook, Apple, Nike, and Walmart, to name a few. [more...]

The Left in the University

As the Leftists scream at the sky on the anniversary of the election of President Trump, it makes us realize the corruption of American higher education is a tragic story in and of itself. “Snowflakes” and “safe spaces,” crowds of thugs shutting down conservative speakers, craven administrators caving in to demands of activist students and faculty have become increasingly common since the rise of Donald Trump sparked a “resistance” movement. Even progressives who have run afoul of campus terrorists are writing books about free speech now that their revolutionary children have started devouring their own. My new book, The Left in the University, volume 8 of The Black Book of the American Left, addresses this issue in detail. [more...]

Taxing America’s Future

The American Dream is being undermined by government policies. “The sweeping tax overhaul House Republicans introduced [November 2] would eliminate or scale back some of the biggest incentives for home-buying in federal law,” wrote Russell Berman in The Atlantic. This would, he said, cut in half the limit on deducting mortgage interest, cap property tax deductibility, repeal the tax deduction for moving expenses, and force more people to pay taxes on profits made from selling a home. The low-earning Millennial Generation has already postponed buying their first home, which has postponed marriages and couples starting a family, which has in turn helped spawn the lowest fertility rate in American history. Higher taxes, in other words, have unintended consequences. In this case, raising taxes on home ownership could mean far fewer children in this generation – and far fewer future workers to pay for Social Security and Medicare that are already speeding toward bankruptcy. [more...]
