Trump Is Howard Beale

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

Let us go back forty years. Here is one of the greatest scenes in the history of the movies. Howard Beale is the presumptive Republican candidate for President of the United States.

Rhetorically Gutless Democrats vs. Trump’s Tweets

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

Well over half a century ago, I became a Bobby Fisher fan. He was asked at age 15 what he loved about chess. He answered: “I love to see them squirm.” Today, I love to see the mainstream media squirm about Trump. In response to the Orlando massacres by a Muslim terrorist, President Obama went […]

Should We Legislate Immorality?

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

legislation

“You can’t legislate morality!” How many times have you heard that one? Too many, I’ll bet. Have you ever sat down and thought through the implications of this humanist slogan? Does anyone really know what it means? We all know how it’s used: to try to reduce support for a proposed law that the complainer […]

What If the FBI Delays Its Announcement to January 21?

Written by Gary North on June 11, 2016

comey

James Comey holds all the cards. He can make the decision regarding the correct time to recommend the indictment or non-indictment of Mrs. Clinton. This puts him 100% in charge. Not 50%. Not 75%. Obama has now gone kissy-face with Clinton. This is seen by a lot of commentators as a guarantee that the Justice […]

It is not easy for me to get inside the mind of a Democrat, but I will try. First, I would be ready to stick it hard to the big New York banks for what they did leading up to 2008-10. Everyone is ready to do this. Why should Democrats not be on this bandwagon? […]

Recently, I have been thinking about how much life has changed in the last three quarters of a century and how much of that change is influenced by the bureaucracies and federal agencies that hold sway over almost every facet of life in America today. I have come to the conclusion that we live in […]

communism

The Communists were successful until they lost hope in the future. By the mid-1980’s, they lost hope. In December 1991, the USSR went out of business. Before that, they looked like winners, as I explained in late 1980. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Paul […]

The Eschatological Crisis of the Moral Majority

I wrote about this in 1981, in the month that Ronald Reagan Was inaugurated. I knew that his fundamentalist supporters were intellectually schizophrenic. The Moral Majority was shut down before Reagan left office. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Last summer, I had the opportunity of […]

Economic Inequality Is Not Increasing. Propaganda Is.

Written by Gary North on April 9, 2016

ParetoPyramid

It never ends. We are besieged by articles on today’s increasing economic inequality. These articles have three things in common: 1. Each one has a favorite explanation/boogeyman. 2. Each one calls for political reforms to make things more equal. 3. Each one fails to mention Pareto’s 20/80 law. Here is the main problem with these […]
