The disgusting poll of the week by the Washington Post shows From moderate Democrats to White Evangelicals, Nearly Every Demographic Group Believes Torture Can Be Justified.
The Post says “nearly” but they are being generous. Close scrutiny shows “every” group supports torture.
Here’s the question […]

The “compromise” refrain from last week’s devastating, for the democrats, midterm election result lasted about one week. Because according to the NYT, here comes Obama with a package of executive actions which will assure Congress full of furious Republicans, which will result in a broad overhaul of […]

Because of the way the news business works, I am writing this column before the close of the polls in the so-called midterm elections, and hence as I write, I do not know their outcome. Will the Republicans or the Democrats control the U.S. […]

I said on October 17 that the Republicans would capture the Senate. “It’s all over but the shouting.”
How did I know? I went to the Iowa Electronic Markets site. It’s a betting site. It gave the Republicans an 80% chance of winning. I published an […]

The various press organizations are now giving a 70% chance that the Republicans will take the Senate. There is a serious deficiency in competence within government everywhere. It appears that the corruption and politics have driven anyone with substance from the field. Who wants […]

Nate Silver is the pollster guru who has predicted races with uncanny accuracy in the past. The Democrats loved him in 2008 and 2012 because he predicted their victories. They don’t love him so much today. Looks like gridlock for Obama’s final two years, […]

For a long time, Fed printing via balance sheet expansion has been the key to understanding markets and the predominant driver that has trumped all other matters. Investors have been able to ignore significant global events, tensions, and economic conditions in faraway places, because a lower […]

“But when we err with our eyes wide open and involve ourselves in great tribulations through sheer lack of judgment, then everyone agrees we have no one to blame but ourselves. It follows therefore if a people’s failures are due … to their own folly, then […]

Two weeks ago the head of the “most transparent administration ever” (perhaps to the NSA?), president Obama, told the common American to “not […]

Senate Democrats are standing behind Obama and his “limited plan to reengage in Iraq” in a declared effort to prevent the country from falling to ISIS fanatics trained by the U.S. government.
Officials told Politico targeted military strikes against ISIS in Syria are also “on […]

Do you remember when the pundits were talking about how the Tea Party movement was going to transform American politics? Do you remember when establishment Republicans in Congress were scared to death of having Tea Party challengers come after their seats? Well, those days are […]

Democrats and Republicans Are Both Missing the Big Picture On Benghazi and Libya
Democrats and Republicans have very different views about Benghazi, Libya.
Republicans say the Obama administration is to blame for the death of Ambassador Stevens – and have created a special […]

With what could be a wave election on the horizon in November due to the unpopularity of Obamacare, why is the Republican leadership raising the white flag? With the end result being a perpetual Democrat lock on the White House if amnesty brings […]

The American people are increasingly waking up to the fact that nothing ever seems to change in Washington D.C. no matter which political party is in power. In fact, as you will see later on in this article, an all-time high 53 percent of all […]

H. L. Mencken (1880 -1956) was an astute observer of the American scene.
He despised politicians, although gained amusement from them and the fools who elected them. His voice has never been needed more than today, given the further degeneration of governance and governors. He would not […]

On April 2nd, two news reports at OpEdNews were coincidentally documenting both the cause and the effect of the aristocracy’s growing control over the United States Government.
One story, “First-Ever Political Study of Top 1% Has Found Extreme Conservatism, Intense Political Involvement,” […]

In 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are people and in 2012 upheld that ruling. Those actions unleashed a flood of corporation and union-sponsored fundraising activities.
Today the Supreme Court Voided Caps on Total Campaign Giving by individuals.
A divided U.S. Supreme Court […]

Recently, I testified before the House Oversight committee on the “risk corridors” in the (Obamacare) exchanges. Republicans claim that this is a device to bail out the insurance companies. Democrats, in the unusual position of defending the insurance companies, actually claimed that the government […]

For 50 years or so the federal government has deliberately and to an increasing extent misstated probable future budget deficits. Democrats and Republicans are guilty. The White House is guilty. And so is Congress. Private firms that deliberately misrepresent their financial statements in this fashion […]
