  • Ted Cruz: Mensch!

    Reading Time: 1 minutesIf you read my blog, you know I’ve had differences with Senator Ted Cruz. But the Senator has stepped up. Bigly! Only a gentleman would do what Cruz just did with his El Chapo bill. Remember the GOP race? Cruz and Trump went at each other like nobody’s business. Wives and all. While Cruz couldn’t […]

  • What Do I Mean By “Narrative”

    Reading Time: 3 minutes“I don’t agree.” Some folks disagreed with my instant assessment of the Syrian strike. My assessment: Trump’s surprise military attack will shift four narratives in Trump’s favor: Trump is Hitler: dead Trump is a Russian agent: dead Trump is incompetent: dying Trump is a lightweight among world leaders: dead In other words, it took 59 […]

  • Trump Launched 59 Cruise Missiles at Leftist Narratives

    Reading Time: 2 minutesNo child of God should suffer such horror. —President Donald J. Trump The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. That’s another way of saying the pen is mightier than the sword. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. Tonight, President Trump blew […]

  • Trump’s Next Move: Infrastructure

    Reading Time: 4 minutesI’ve changed my mind on priority. Instead of going to tax reform next, President Trump should work on that big-league infrastructure bill. Now. Fast. President Trump needs a big win because power is in perception. He also needs to put Democrats in a bind. Plus, he needs to prove he can pass big legislation without […]

  • Without Power, Principles Are Platitudes

    Reading Time: 3 minutesWithout power, principles are platitudes. Consider this a favor to the Freedom Caucusers. Those folks can’t see past the end of their own principles. Knowing the Freedom Caucus people pretty well, I know they’re very happy with Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. I know they’d be very miserable if Gorsuch were rejected and Trump had […]

  • Neediness

    Reading Time: 2 minutesPresident Trump is teaching the world a huge lesson. That valuable lesson goes something like this: Don’t be needy. Jim Camp is a world-famous negotiation coach. Jim has led some enormous negotiations: labor disputes, huge multi-national buys, and mergers. This is is what Jim says about neediness in his book Start With No: It is absolutely […]

  • Many Times Trump’s Crazy Statements Turned Out to Be Right

    Reading Time: 4 minutesAlmost every time Donald Trump says something crazy, something so outlandish and wrong, he later turns out to be right. I know his critics can’t read my blog. (Literally, they can’t. They have a psychological problem that prevents their brains from processing information that’s inconsistent with their beliefs.) But for those of you who want […]

  • The Joy of Trump

    Reading Time: 4 minutesWhat bothers you most when you’re in a bad mood? You can imagine what it’s like be in a bad mood, can’t you? People go through periods of deep funk when nothing seems bright or cheerful, don’t they? And when you’re in those moods, what’s the worst thing? That’s right, it’s being around a bunch […]

  • Greatest Presser Ever. Wow. Stunned Happy.

    Reading Time: 2 minutesImagine Michael Jordan’s best game ever. Or Tiger Woods. That’s what it was like watching President Trump today. Amazing. The President looked poised, cheerful, and humorous. He volleyed with Jim Acosta of CNN. He rated each question “good” or “bad.” He explained why he doesn’t want a nuclear war with Russia because the press seems […]

  • Unprotected Sects

    Reading Time: 3 minutesThe television activists at CNN look like college seniors who learned upon returning from winter break that credit requirements for graduation were just upped from 120 hours to 180 hours. And there ain’t grandfathering! Diehard NeverTrumpers attack Trump supporters on social media like bitter, divorcing spouses locked in a pitched custody battle. And there ain’t […]

  • American Steel

    Reading Time: 1 minutesI know people, and you probably do too, who are out of work from the United Steel Granite City (aka Granite City Steel) closure. It’s disheartening and depressing for people who worked hard all those years, thrown into the street because of bad trade deals and stifling regulations. But President Trump has ordered the Keystone […]

  • Terrible Day for NeverTrump—Great Day for the Constitution

    Reading Time: 4 minutesOne way to summarize Donald Trump’s first business day in office is to say he followed through on many, many campaign promises. Another way to look at it is that Trump slaughtered NeverTrump. Both explanations are accurate, but one is the cause, the other the effect. First, you know I pay very little attention to […]

  • Trump Meant It All

    Reading Time: 3 minutesTrump’s enemies took refuge in the self-created narrative that his campaign was 100% American showmanship. The crooked press and the corrupt establishment, while dissing Trump publicly, scoffed privately. They “knew” his supporters were idiots and yahoos—marginally functional Neanderthals from America’s unreconstructed backwoods whose ability to think, handicapped by genetics, was further crippled by the moonshine […]
