How to Crash the Economy, Big Government Style
We are in a looming financial crisis, even if we don’t want to see it. Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was, according to Moody’s, worthy of an investment-grade rating as of March 8, 2023. S&P Global Ratings similarly held a high opinion of SVB. Two days later, SVB was shut down; immediately, Moody’s dropped SVB into junk territory. So did S&P Global Ratings.

California Dream Could Become a Nightmare
“Well, they’re out there a-having fun In that warm California sun” – (1964 song by The Rivieras) California has become an example of what a state looks like when it is controlled by a single party – in this case Democrats – who are trying to impose a green energy secular religion on their people. State officials have banned the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035, but a preview of the…

CNN Analyst Slams Biden Student Loan Plan: Wasting Too Much Money!
Wednesday night's edition of Don Lemon Tonight had a rare moment of sanity when discussing President Joe Biden's student loan bailout. CNN economics commentator Catherine Rampell slammed the plan as essentially a waste of money since it is structured in a way that bails out wealthy people with MBAs and medical degrees who are perfectly capable of paying the loans back.
Swindled Again By Big Government Waste
Remember those “shovel-ready jobs” promised by the Obama-Biden administration in 2011? When many failed to appear after passage of this spending boondoggle, President Obama joked, “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.” That law, noted Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), cost $787 billion, of which $48 billion was supposed to go for infrastructure. It was disingenuously…
71.5% of Voters Reject Ruhle’s $3.5T ‘Barbie DreamHouse’ Fantasy

But a disproportionate amount of the money will end up in the hands of…
I Accept Nancy Pelosi's Challenge
Responding to Democrats in her party who are troubled by the massive $3.5 trillion spending bill that would forever transform America into a debtor nation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked a question: “Where would you cut?” Her question carries with it a conceit held by many contemporary politicians that every government program is sacred and must not be touched. Even suggesting that a decrease in…
NY Times Soft-Pedals Biden’s Discriminatory ‘Push for Racial Equity’
A front-page story from the New York Times Sunday, “Biden’s Push for Racial Equity Hits Legal and Political Snags,” opened and closed with affecting stories of hardship under sympathetic headlines.

Welfare for the Rich
Congress passed the $2.2 trillion Heroes Act. House Democrats said it gives money to “governments who desperately need funds.” But it also gives lots of money to people who don't need funds. Maryland, which even The Washington Post admits is “flush with cash,” got enough extra money to pass a budget that “hands bonuses to every state worker.”
