Boehner On Ted Cruz: "Lucifer Is Back"

Back on April 28, we learned that John Boehner is not a fan of Ted Cruz. At all. So much so that he called Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh" and a "miserable son of a bitch." Overnight, the former House Speaker, a stalwart of the old GOP establishment, chimed in again in the aftermath of the Cruz fiasco and summed up his reaction to Cruz's controversial RNC speech in three words, according to a former aide: "Lucifer is back."

RNC Day 3: Make America First Again - Live Feed

Freshly-picked vice presidential nominee Mike Pence is the headliner of Wednesday’s third day of the Republican National Convention. As The Hill reports, with party business, Donald Trump’s official presidential nomination all settled, and any long-shot attempts to deny him the nomination in the rearview mirror, the third day should be a day of unity. With programming not starting until 7pmET, a number of Trump's former rivals and other notable conservatives will all focus on the day's theme: Make America First Again (which is ironically where Trump finds himself, leading Clinton by 1pt in the latest poll).

"The Case For Donald Trump Is Simple"

The alternative is President Hillary Clinton... Fair enough to argue that Mr. Trump represents a huge risk. But honesty requires that this risk be weighed against a clear-eyed look at the certainties a Hillary Clinton administration would bring.

This Is What Hillary Clinton's Advisors Really Think Of The American Public

ACQ: “Look, it doesn’t matter what you or I think. The President wants the TPP, and the Party isn’t going to oppose him....They don’t see much of a risk. Most Americans don’t know or care about the TPP.”

RR: “But they know big corporations are running economic policy. They think the whole system is corrupt. Believe me, Trump will use this against Hillary.” ACQ: “I think you’re being too cynical.”

Brexit & The Crisis Of Capitalism

Thousands of commentaries have been issued about Brexit in the past week. Most discuss Brexit as the result of immigration issues, class war, political theater, a reaction against the European Union's bureaucratic power, sovereignty, etc. Other essays focus on the potential upsides or downsides of Brexit. What few if any commentators present is the idea that Brexit is a symptom of the Crisis of Capitalism...

The Curse Of "Wealth Effects" Central Banking

The robo-machines and perma-bulls are at it again, delivering another volumeless dead-cat bounce in a market that has churned sideways for 600 days now. Nevertheless, there is a reason for the churn and there is a culprit behind the abortive rallies.

ObamaScare Looms - Health Insurers Are Looking For A Taxpayer Bailout

Insurers helped cheerlead the creation of Obamacare, with plenty of encouragement – and pressure – from Democrats and the Obama administration. With the prospect of tens of millions of new customers forced into the market for comprehensive health-insurance plans, whether they needed that coverage or not, underwriters saw potential for a massive windfall of profits. Six years later, those dreams have failed to materialize. Now some insurers want taxpayers to provide them the profits to which they feel entitled - not through superior products and services, but through lawsuits.

Health Care Costs Are Rising Sharply, And It Will Get Much Worse

Thanks to Obamacare, it is frequently better for a middle class family to get no raise than even a decent sized raise. The wage point varies, but many will say “Dear employer, please don’t pay me more. It will cost me a lot of money”.
