quoting Michael McFaulvia Times Free Press
Sunday, June 16, 2019

Will Dems’ Presidential Fate Repeat Past Wins, Or Past Losses?

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Monday, June 17, 2019

Many Republicans are feeling optimistic about Trump’s reelection in 2020. The Mueller investigation, on which Democrats’ pinned their hopes for mortally wounding the president, has crumbled like a bride’s first pie crust. AG Barr, unlike the lollygagging Jeff Sessions, is vigorously investigating the corruption in the FBI and DOJ that led to government agencies’ interference in an election in favor of Hillary Clinton, and then their attempts to engineer a bloodless coup to remove a legally elected president. The economy is roaring, with numbers on growth, employment, and productivity not seen in decades. And international rivals like Iran and China are now being confronted rather than coddled.

Cory Booker's Very Bad Ideas To Solve America's Housing Crisis

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Sean Hannity
Friday, June 14, 2019

In the first presidential election after the full recovery from the subprime mortgage crisis, which was largely caused by legislation promoting “affordable housing,” presidential hopeful Senator Cory Booker (Spartacus) has released his plan for achieving affordable housing. Thomas Sowell clarifies this way of thinking in his book “The Housing Boom and Bust,” where he explains how the market learns from these mistakes and adjusts with remarkable speed, but “the question is whether politicians and government bureaucrats learn, especially when they pay no price for being wrong, and are able to deflect blame toward the market with denunciations of ‘greed,’ ‘Wall Street’ or whatever other convenient scapegoats are available.”
