Socialism Sank Venezuela, Could Get Much Worse

I’m not sure why I keep subscribing and re-subscribing to the Washington Post. I’ve cancelled my subscription more than once. And it is stories like this one on Venezuela that push me to the edge of canceling it again. Leave it to them to find a twisted way fail to pinpoint for readers the reason: socialism. The …

Moderate Republicans, You Win. Now Deal With It.

Moderate Republicans, you win. Decades of trying to sounds like conservatives, but governing like moderates or liberals laid the seeds for a Donald Trump win. I also find it richly ironic that a lot of the people who complained about the Tea Party, are the same folks complaining to me about Donald Trump.

It builds upon several years of secret maneuverings that include changes to US regulations that make it easier for persons subject to US law to do business with the regime. To date, …

Hold Law Breakers Accountable, Not Wage War on Capitalism

Yet the potentially unlawful theft of confidential documents from a Panamanian law firm is no laughing matter. While tracking down lawbreakers is a good thing, breaking the law to …

Catholic Bishop: Good Friday Came Three Days Early

An important fact about the Brussels terrorists attacks lost on most Western media is its religious dimension. I’m not talking about the refusal by the American and European Left to label the attackers what they are radical Islamic jihadists.
