Sweden Has Disappeared

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The entire nation of Sweden seems to have disappeared. So far as we can tell, no scientific investigation into the disappearance of Sweden has been conducted. In fact, it is among scientists that Sweden seems to have pulled off an amazing vanishing act. Politicians around the world also have lost complete contact with the country. […]

The Economist Is Starting to Get It

Estimated Reading Time: 7 minutes

I have read the Economist for 40 years. It is perhaps the best international news magazine that actually understands economics, even if we might have different views. It was founded in 1843 by James Wilson, not surprisingly an economist. It is rare that a publication can stay in business that long.  That longevity says things […]

New Big Spending When We Can’t Afford It

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

One of the major issues of the day is the complete lack of fiscal responsibility. This is unfortunately a bipartisan failure because when Republicans were in power, they did little to shore up the finances of the country.  Republicans talked a good game of entitlement reform, but always turned back from what some call “the third […]

Who Will Pay the Price? Who Should Pay the Price?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

As American citizens confront a foreign policy disaster of this magnitude, we must begin with an inventory of injured parties. First, unquestionably, are the American men and women in our armed forces who have been killed and injured in this grievous failure. Very much like the Vietnam War, it is the grunts as we called them, […]

The Socialist Robot from Scranton

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Certainly this early in the first term, it might be premature to issue judgements on Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., but we confess he has turned out to be even worse than our most disturbing nightmare. He has divided the country further, by pitting the masked against the unmasked, the vaccinated against the unvaccinated. He has attempted to […]

Will America Be Held Hostage?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Many in the media are raising legitimate questions about tactical aspects of the Biden Blunder in Afghanistan. Among them are things we have questioned ourselves, such as why was Bagram Airbase abandoned, why dismantle the intelligence capabilities, long before consideration was given to the U.S. citizens likely to still be in-country? The military leaves last, […]

Behold: Diversity in Failure

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

We would not for one moment diminish the seriousness of the debacle Biden has made of his “withdrawal” from Afghanistan. When a great superpower is this badly managed, history suggests ugly and terrible things will follow.  It is said that nature abhors a vacuum and that has always been the case in foreign policy. Weakness […]

Initial Public Reaction Negative For Biden

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

In politics, often it is the optics of a situation, not necessarily the facts that determine the eventual political repercussions of a particular event. Sometimes no amount of effort can undo the impact of the striking visual message. The Economist, the reliably left-leaning publication of the international business elite suggests the implications of Biden’s botched withdrawal […]

Reimagine Competence

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

To “reimagine” is a favorite buzzword on the Left. Embedded in the idea is that imagination alone can change reality. The reality you see is a social construct. All previous people were idiots and what they learned about living together is nonsense. We don’t need nation-states or nuclear families; we don’t even need the sexes…  just […]

A China In A Bull Shop

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

China has taken a number of steps of late to restrict enterprise. Press reports often phrase that there has been a “crackdown” on the private sector as if a private sector really exists in China. In other cases, they have stepped in, as in the case of Hong Kong, to destroy freedom and the economic […]
