Thomas James Perkins is a stud. If he weren’t an octogenarian, I’d ask for his hand in marriage because he courageously and eloquently defends free market capitalism.
Perkins is the founder of the Silicone Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB). He is also the ex-husband of the world’s reigning best-selling author alive: American novelist and San Francisco resident Danielle Steel. Continue reading
Reagan took vacations. Bush took vacations. Obama LOVES taking vacations. It would not be so annoying to watch Obama vacation if it did not seem like he’s always vacationing—even when he’s supposed to be working. We are still waiting for Obama’s “big recovery” to recover the jobs and wealth we lost during the recession. (The average American has yet to recover 55 percent of their household wealth since the recession.) For all we know, when he is not vacationing, he is imbibing cold beer and smoking e-cigarettes while the rest of us work our tails off.
Dear Mr. President: The next time you decide you need a rest from all the rest you already seem to get on-the-job, here are three friendly suggestions for how you could enjoy your time off: Continue reading
Look out, Sen. Al Franken, talk radio host Jason Lewis will soon replace you in the U.S. Senate.
Conservative-libertarian talk radio host Jason Lewis is seriously entertaining a run against Minnesota Sen. Al Franken in 2014. It will not be a slam-dunk, but Lewis can pull off a win for the following five reasons: Continue reading
Three brilliant black leaders are tuning out Obama. And the black community needs to tune into these leaders. Continue reading
Ask Siri: “What is CPAC 2013? There is an app in the iTunes store called CPAC 2013. You must know something about this event!”
Siri is a smart woman. She responds: Continue reading
El Chapo haunts the streets of Chicago. His ghost hordes cash in Los Angeles stash houses. His shadow darkens underground tunnels between Mexico and the U.S. His spirit drives his clan to bloodshed. The world’s most-wanted kingpin may be dead. But the Sinaloa cartel will thrive until America legalizes drugs.
Guatemalan authorities are currently investigating whether Joaquín Guzmán (nicknamed El Chapo) was killed in a gunfight near Mexico’s border in a remote jungle-ranch province known as Peten. Continue reading
There are a few good men. And by “a few,” I mean five.
Certainly there are far more than five good men in America. But in the U.S. Senate, there are just five moral Republicans.
Who am I referring to? Let me introduce you to the five men in the Senate who stood their ground while their Republican peers (save two abstainers) voted for a fiscal cliff deal that essentially codifies theft: Continue reading
We wish each other “peace on earth.” Wishing is not enough. We must act on this wish by promoting capitalism on earth.
Too many people (including some religious leaders) are promoting the idea that re-distribution of wealth or “social justice” is the best way to foster peace. But Christians and Jews need only read the Old Testament to see that God condemns stealing and envy so much that he gave Moses commandments like: “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, and “You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.” Continue reading
Stop worrying about the ‘fiscal cliff.’ Spending cuts would feel therapeutic after watching Standard & Poor’s and Egan-Jones downgrade our credit rating and seeing President Obama add $6 trillion to the national debt. The way to avert another recession and massive inflation is to eliminate the unconstitutional Federal Reserve.
There are two ways for politicians to “pay” for their spending. They can be transparent and raise taxes extremely high across all income levels. (This is not happening because politicians know Americans would riot.) Or, they can be sneaky and “monetize the debt,” which means allowing the Federal Reserve to print money and inflate the currency. Continue reading
Soul-searching is not in the GOP’s blood. Many Republicans see themselves as stoic, rugged and hardworking individuals. But after twice losing the White House to an ex-community organizer and failing to mobilize the base, Republicans need to take a trip to a mountainous valley, sip some tea and meditate.
In the quiet of nature, I think Republicans would find that the solutions to winning lie within themselves. After my own reflection, I developed three key insights into how the GOP can win presidential elections going forward: Continue reading
