      Today, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew met with Finance Minister Oleksandr Shlapak to finalize the United States’ $1 billion loan to the Ukraine. Under an International Monetary Fund agreement, the federal government agreed to pay $1 billion of the Ukraine’s national debt should the nation default. “The United States very much wants to see Ukraine prosper,” […]

    • Another Phony Budget Debate - 14 Apr 2014
      posted in Columns & Featured

      Anyone watching last week’s debate over the Republican budget resolution would have experienced déjà vu, as the debate bore a depressing similarity to those of previous years. Once again, the Republicans claimed their budget would cut spending in a responsible manner, while Democratic opponents claimed the plan’s spending cuts would shred the safety net and […]

    • Ft. Hood: An Avoidable Tragedy - 11 Apr 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Featured & Life & Military

      Last week we saw yet another tragedy at Ft. Hood, Texas, as a distraught Iraq war veteran killed three of his fellow soldiers before killing himself. It is nearly five years after the last Ft. Hood shooting, where 13 people were killed. These tragedies are heartbreaking and we certainly feel much sympathy for the families […]

    • Aid to Ukraine Is a Bad Deal For All - 04 Apr 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Foreign Aid

      Last week Congress overwhelmingly passed a bill approving a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine and more sanctions on Russia. The bill will likely receive the president’s signature within days. If you think this is the last time US citizens will have their money sent to Ukraine, you should think again. This is only the […]

    • US ‘Democracy Promotion’ Destroys Democracy Overseas - 28 Mar 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Politics & Govt & The Constitution

      It was almost ten years ago when, before the House International Relations Committee, I objected to the US Government funding NGOs to meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine. At the time the “Orange Revolution” had forced a regime change in Ukraine with the help of millions of dollars from Washington. At that time I […]

    • If Spying on Senate is So Bad, Why is it OK For Them To Spy On Us? - 21 Mar 2014
      posted in Columns & Privacy

      The reaction of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to last week’s revelations that the CIA secretly searched Senate Intelligence Committee computers reveals much about what the elites in government think about the rest of us. “Spy on thee, but not on me!” The hypocrisy of Sen. Feinstein is astounding. She is the biggest backer of the […]

    • Can We Afford Ukraine? - 14 Mar 2014
      posted in Columns & World

      Officially, US debt stands at more than $17 trillion. In reality, it is many times more. The cost of the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq may be more than six trillion dollars. President Obama’s illegal invasion of Libya cost at least a billion dollars and left that country devastated. The costs of US regime […]

    • Leave Ukraine Alone - 28 Feb 2014

      Last week Ukraine saw its worst violence since the break-up of the Soviet Union over 20 years ago. Protesters occupying the main square in the capitol city, Kiev, clashed with police leaving many protesters and police dead and many more wounded. It is an ongoing tragedy and it looks like there is no end in […]

    • At the Fed, The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same - 21 Feb 2014
      posted in Columns

      Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen testified before Congress for the first time since replacing Ben Bernanke at the beginning of the month. Her testimony confirmed what many of us suspected, that interventionist Keynesian policies at the Federal Reserve are well-entrenched and far from over. Mrs. Yellen practically bent over backwards to reassure Wall […]

    • Will No One Challenge Obama’s Executive Orders? - 14 Feb 2014
      posted in Columns

      President Obama’s state of the union pledge to “act with or without Congress” marks a milestone in presidential usurpation of Congressional authority.  Most modern presidents have used executive orders to change and even create laws without Congressional approval. However President Obama is unusually brazen, in that most presidents do not brag about their plans to […]
