The Greek Referendum On The Eurozone
Greece and The Troika I keep showing the Hindenburg Explosion Led Zep Art in conjunction with the poor, miserable Greek Economy. I figure right about now, we can also offer up a little bit of night music. Not quite Mozart, but “In My Time of Dying” from “Physical Graffiti” would about describe the current state of play down yonder by the | Read More »
A Bad Bill + Crony Socialism = An Even Worse Bill
The Barack Obama Administration is – even more than any of its predecessors – the Crony Socialism Administration. No prior presidency has used and abused government to do more for its friends – and more to its friends’ competitors – than has this one. When Private Companies Beg for Government Favors – It’s Crony Socialism Crony Socialism: When Private Sector Losers Turn to Big Government | Read More »

Scott Walker: the new Thad Cochran
Scott Walker just dropped off my list of acceptable candidates. I like a lot about Governor Walker but people are policy. And his decision to hire Brad Dayspring, an unprincipled political operative who combines viciousness and incompetence in equal measures tells us a lot. Congrats to @BDayspring on joining Team Walker! Huge get– one of the best communications strategists in the game. $$ — Alyssa | Read More »

Batman is Problematic
The new Batman game to hit shelves last week, Batman: Arkham Knight, is a fantastic game that you should play if you have a PS4 or Xbox One, and you like video games and Batman. The story is awesome, the gameplay is great, and there is more than enough suspense to keep you playing. If you’re into video games, what more could you want? Well, if | Read More »
The Wildfire Burns
For those of us of faith, it appears society has collectively lost its mind. Madness has set in. Yes, in fact, we see what Paul warns of in Romans 1. The people have been handed over to themselves and we are caught in the middle. It is a wildfire of the mind and society. A lot of you want to check out of it. You | Read More »
June 28, 1778. Battle of Monmouth
Every war produces a few battles which serve as axioms for that conflict. In my view, the American Revolution produced two battles which really let you understand the war. The first of these is the rapid fire combination of First Trenton, Second Trenton, and Princeton between December 26, 1776 and January 3, 1777. Here you see the first glimmer of Washington as a strategist in | Read More »
Washington Free Beacon causes US State Department to act like spoiled children. In front of Europe, too.

Terrell Owens Has Some Advice for Social Conservatives
Terrell Owens was a mess of a human being – but in his prime, he was one hell of a wide receiver. In his heyday, he was bigger, stronger and faster than anyone who ever tried to cover him. If you attempted to defend T.O. by covering him with one defensive back, you were asking for him to beat you all by himself, as evidenced | Read More »
After Friday’s grotesque Supreme Court ruling that grants legal status to homosexual marriages based on the opinion of five people that such a bizarre right is found in the Constitution, I think it is time for Conservatives to get with the program. Many of our betters — this would be the 300 or so “Conservatives” who signed an amicus brief extolling the rightousness of trashing | Read More »
Don’t Be Paranoid. It Doesn’t Affect You.
Don’t be paranoid about the Supreme Court making same-sex marriage legal in the United States. Long have opponents warned of a legal slippery slope, but mainly because they are fear-mongers who are full of H8. The fact is, those gay couples getting married doesn’t affect you or your dumb religion in any way at all. Nobody is going to have to change the way they | Read More »
Obergefell and Guns
For supporters of traditional marriage and, more broadly, social conservatives, the Obergefell decision has obviously been a huge disappointment. Using the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process clause, the Supreme Court invented a fundamental right to marriage, in particular, same-sex marriage. It is by no means an adequate consolation prize, but the interpretation of the amendment by the court might open the way to further gun rights | Read More »
Autocrats on the March
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the rise of modern autocrats, how they are different from their 20th century predecessors and if freedom can halt their advance.

Aren’t We Yet Tired of the Feds Being Totally Wrong – Or Lying to Us?
Gassy assertions by government officials are, of course, a given. Very few groups of people are more wrong, more consistently – yet with more confidence – than the people who lord over us. There are only two possible explanations. They are either really, really ill informed and naive. Or they know they’re wrong – and they are each respectively lying both of their faces off. | Read More »
