Last February President Trump rescinded one of Obama’s executive orders regarding gun control. Basically, Obama ordered the Social Security Administration to report people who were no longer in control of their finances to  the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that Trump chose to nullify. I can’t imagine why he did this or why Congress supported […]

This is from the Federalist, and there are no “sources say” or “according to an aide with inside information.” It appears they have been digging through actual records themselves to get this information: Obama’s Campaign Paid $972,000 To Law Firm That Secretly Paid Fusion GPS In 2016 Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has […]

It’s a video of Barack Obama giving a reading at the Cambridge Public Library (something I’ve done myself) back in 1995… if there is any doubt about whether he wrote his book, I think the Q & A answers that: the “voice” in the book is the same voice that you hear from this young […]

  When President Trump gave his speech this past week to the nation regarding the troop increase in Afghanistan, he also added, candidly, “ It’s different when you sit behind the desk of the Oval Office”. In other words, you can say one thing as a candidate for President, but when you are privy to […]

Jim Rogers: Biggest Financial Collapse in my Lifetime is Overdue

 

The billionaire commodity guru Jim Rogers believes the next economic catastrophe is coming and when it arrives it will be the worst financial calamity the 74-year old investor has ever seen. “The financial markets are going to have the worst problems in my lifetime.” Jim joins us at Whiskey Politics and discusses China, Janet Yellen, why “Mr. Obama wasn’t a very smart guy,” his opinions about Donald Trump, and of course we ask Jim to suggest how we can protect ourselves.

Larry Elder: The Sage of South Central

 

Libertarian talk show host and best selling author Larry Elder, “The Sage Of South Central,” joins us at Whiskey Politics and tears it up! Larry is heard on over 300 radio stations on the Salem Media Network and is regularly featured on all major television news networks. Larry shares his thoughts on states rights, health care, Trump’s first six months, the media’s double standards and bias, his touching story from his book Dear Father, Dear Son about reconciliation with his Father. Of course, it’s Larry Elder, so we finished up with his outrage once again targeting O.J. Simpson, the response from the black community and what, if anything, has improved with race relations in the past 20 years.

I recently purchased Herrnstein and Murray’s delightful little tome at our local Half Price Books. I was busy corralling my 6-year-old out of the children’s section and toward the checkout counter while my wife was making our purchase, so I didn’t get to see the look on the face of cashier as xhe rang it up.

The American dream rests on the notion on “rugged individualism”: freedom, liberty, and equality of opportunity and a tradition of conquering physical, economic, social, and political frontiers. David Davenport, coauthor of Rugged Individualism: Dead or Alive?, looks at President Trump’s political philosophy, his record to date and suggests ways the new administration can restore this flickering American tradition.

A Tale of Two Cabinets – Obama 2009 vs Trump 2017 – Updated & Final

 

President Trump and his cabinet on March 13, 2017.

A couple of months ago, I published a post which compared the Senate confirmation process during the first Obama administration and the current Trump administration. The point of the post was to document the unparalleled level of obstruction on the part of the Senate Democrats during the current cabinet confirmation process. At the time, I promised to update the comparison once the current confirmation process was completed. That happened Thursday, when the US Senate confirmed Robert Lighthizer as US Trade Representative by a vote of 84-12.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to Elizabeth Warren criticizing former Pres. Obama for leaving millions of Americans feeling like they’ve been “kicked in the teeth” in the current economy.  They also groan at reports that up to 50 House Republicans really don’t want to repeal Obamacare and many of those are even wobbly on giving states more flexibility.  And they discuss the ouster of Jim DeMint at the Heritage Foundation and address speculation that Steve Bannon might replace him.

David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump for aggressively rolling back burdensome federal regulations.  They also wince at new Census Bureau data showing more Americans aged 18-34 live with their parents than with a spouse, a major shift from 40 years ago.  And they brace themselves for Barack Obama’s first public appearance since Inauguration Day and discuss how active Obama is likely to be in policy debates.

Brian Terry Murder Suspect Arrested in Mexico

 

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in 2010 gun battle, 10 miles north of Arizona’s border with Mexico. Two guns recovered from assailants were part of “Operation Fast and Furious,” an Obama-era scheme conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Terry’s suspected murderer was arrested Wednesday by US and Mexico law enforcement personnel.
