By Fred Reed A great uproar goes forth from the enemies of the Trump Beast, with much gnashing of hair and pulling of teeth. He will be a terrible President, they say, and they may well be right.

Goodbye, Goldman Sachs. Hello, JP Morgan? It never hurts to ask. A senior person on President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team contacted JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Jamie Dimon to see if he would be interested in being U.S. Treasury secretary, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

“There’s No Crying in Politics!”

Written by Gary North on November 12, 2016

CNN has done us a great favor by posting its interview with this despairing millennial. It reminds us of just how ill-informed Leftist activists can be. The interviewer asked him his views on the electoral college. This did not register. He was all upset. He could not be consoled. As it turned out, this video […]
