In a world where truth, justice, and the American Way still exist—an America that still believes in some sort of ultimate accountability—what the Golden State’s elites are doing is literally sinful.
If California’s politicians feel obligated to create a public perception that they are in a permanent state of war with President Trump, that’s just politics. But they’ve been braying about climate change for decades, and far too many of the things they’re doing in the name of fighting climate change are just plain stupid and wasteful.
An executive order from President Trump declaring a state of emergency, followed by an interagency effort, could get America’s homeless crisis under control. And it could happen in months instead of interminable years.
What if global warming, regardless of the cause, will not race catastrophically upwards? What if some warming, and somewhat more CO2 in the atmosphere, is mostly good for the planet and for humanity? What if extreme weather is not bound to become more extreme than ever? Even if anthropogenic CO2 emissions are driving the planet headlong into an apocalyptic nightmare, climate skeptics should be heard.
In the absence of religion, patriotism, and traditions of family and community, people have found new ideologies to absorb their passions.
The libertarian position on everything from “free trade” and open borders to internet censorship and legalizing hard drugs is the same: It is in lockstep with the agenda of the progressive corporate globalist Left.
The Golden State's determination to pour hundreds of billions of dollars into renewable technologies needs to be examined not only against the obvious pitfall of likely obsolescence but also against the costs and benefits of that course versus building a safe and reliable power grid for the 21st century.
How might we view the next few decades in an America shaped by the vision pioneered in this century by the 45th president?
Entire blocks of Venice Beach have become the site of permanent homeless encampments, where residents cannot park their cars, walk their dogs, or, in some cases, patronize local businesses which leads to those businesses closing their doors.
By 2024, progressive control of all branches of the federal government ensure Warren’s reelection. By now the electorate is firmly convinced that whatever inequalities exist in the nation are the product of racism and sexism, requiring sweeping remedies. At the same time, a supermajority of voters now believe that no cost is too great to prevent “climate change.”
Beto O’Rourke may stand 6′ 4″ tall, but his message is small, dark, depressing, and useless.
Libertarians have become pawns of the progressive Left in America, and in an ironic twist, both of them have been co-opted by globalist corporate interests. When everything is privatized, rationed and metered, corporate rent seekers gain new revenue streams.
The next time hatred comes your way, don't recriminate. Recruit.
Robert Francis O’Rourke did us a favor; he made it very clear what the Left has in mind.
Ultimately the choice of economic policies for the United States comes down to only one: inflation where wages grow at a faster rate than assets appreciate.
Before the federal government sends any more money to help the homeless, it would be a good thing to expose the unconscionable waste of money and hold elected officials accountable.
Americans are wearing out infrastructure that was built decades ago. Thanks to permitting delays and litigation, the costs of replacements and upgrades are prohibitive. It doesn't have to be this way.
In the war for public opinion, a loose-knit group of politically incorrect celebrities, writers, podcasters, and vloggers is the last refuge of free speech and open debate on the policy issues that will define what sort of world we leave to our posterity.
The United States needs to spend more on its military, it needs to spend more on its infrastructure, even if that means increasing the federal deficit. There is no palatable alternative.
The U.S. has to use deficit spending to make investments in resilient new infrastructure and military technology that leapfrog our adversaries and bring the nation into the 21st century.
