The Long War Of The Trump Presidency Has Only Just Begun

The arrogance, the assumed posture of moral superiority, the conceit of our cultural elite, on exhibit on that stage Friday night, is what Americans regurgitated when they voted for Donald Trump. Yet the conduct of the “Hamilton” cast puts us on notice. The left neither accepts its defeat nor the legitimacy of Trump’s triumph. His presidency promises to be embattled from Day One.

Chicago's Plight: Why Do Blacks Perpetually Vote For Politicians Who Make Their Lives Worse?

Chicago suffered through its worst summer of violence in decades. In August, over 400 people were shot and 80 killed. Activists and public unions blame income inequality. Income inequality is rising, but very few understand who is to blame. And the tax hikes and pay hikes that unions seek exacerbate the problems and cause white flight. Many claim education is the answer, but the Chicago public school system is not only financially bankrupt, it is morally bankrupt.

Obama Explains Why The Presidential Race Is Such A "Nail-Biter"

The President of "the most transparent administration ever" is shocked at how close the election has become. Having seemed to be try to shame the black community into voting for Hillary (calling it a "personal insult"), CNN reports that President Obama has found another scapegoat  - blaming "misinformation" from right-wing websites for the "nail-biter."

Hillary Became Unelectable Long Ago

It all looked so promising before the details started leaking out, didn’t it? Destiny, first woman president, all of that. But not this woman. One thing that speaks for Hillary is she screwed it up all by herself. Trump had nothing to do with it. Let alone Putin. In that sense, she’s an independent woman. In the end, Hillary got stuck in her own web of sheer hubris.

FBI Probes Firm Belonging To Brother Of Clinton Campaign Chair For Ukraine Corruption Ties

While much of the media focus over the past week has been on the potential corruption scandal involving Ukraine's former president and Donald Trump's now former advisor, Paul Manafort, perhaps it is time for it to shift attention to the Podesta Group, the lobbying firm which belongs to Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta

David Stockman Rants Against The Dangers & Digressions Of The Donald's Demagoguery

"Making America great" is about unleashing the nation’s capitalists again. It’s an expression that prosperity is not bestowed by the state but won by the kind of builders, investors, innovators and workers that The Donald fancies to be the essence of Trump Inc. To that extent, Donald Trump could be regarded as an incipient anti-statist. While this might seem like an overly generous characterization, it is a measure, alas, of the degree to which the bipartisan “policy” consensus against him has congealed around what is essentially a Keynesian axiom of endless macroeconomic intervention and “stimulus”.

Rahm Emanuel Says Chicago Pension Crisis "Improving", Facts Show He Is Lying

Fridays in the summer are a great day to dump news you don’t want scrutinized, as reporters will tell you. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel just dropped some propaganda, bragging about balancing the Chicago budget and fixing the city’s pension plans. While Reuters' Dave McKinney took the lies hook, line, and sinker; the facts behind the lies can be summarized thus: "the kicked can is not included."

Germany Just Blew Up Italy's Bank Bailout Plan

Germany opposes any attempt to shield private bank investors from losses if Italy pushes ahead with plans to recapitalize lenders. Merkel’s government says that European Union rules on handling struggling banks should apply in any rescue effort, including forcing losses on shareholders and some creditors before public money can be injected. The government in Berlin rejects the argument that the U.K. vote to leave the EU constitutes an “exceptional circumstance.”

Chicago Is Pushing For A Massive Bailout Of Its Public School System

Perhaps riding high on the small victory of a slight reprieve in the amount of money the city would have to contribute to fund the liabilities over the next few years, Rahm Emanuel is now quietly asking the city to change investment rules that would allow Chicago to purchase debt from sister agencies such as the Chicago Public School system - said differently, Rahm Emanuel wants to bail out the Chicago Public School system.
