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. It is unclear how Dimon […]

“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 […]

Elon Musk is a visionary. He thinks he will build a spaceship to take rich people to Mars, and make a profit. He also thinks he will produce an electric car he can sell at a profit. Along with these visions, he has a vision for a universal federal welfare scheme that will pay the […]

By Fred Reed All right, we have him. My reaction to Trump’s victory is barely of interest to me, and so it may be that the world is not waiting in quiet desperation for an account. I have no information on this matter from Ulan Bator or Sulawesi. Insofar as my reaction was that of […]

If Trump wins, Bryan Cranston thinks America is broken bad. He says he will move to Canada. George Stephanopoulos’ wife says they will start looking at real estate in Australia. He has neither confirmed nor denied. Good for them. They are verbally serious. Maybe they won’t actually move. They would be walking away from tens […]

Two Podesta Emails the Media Do Not Mention

Posted on November 5, 2016

By Cassandra Fairbanks In perhaps the most disturbing Wikileaks release to date, Tony Podesta (John Podesta’s brother) is invited to a “Spirit Cooking” dinner with performance artist Marina Abramovic. Dinner with a famous artist might sound deeply mundane, but there is far more to this story. Abramovic, 69, is a fairly famous Serbian performance artist, […]

The Paris Accords on climate change is now in force. You didn’t notice any change, did you? I predict that you will not notice any change in climate change. The climate will keep changing. “The climate, it is a-changin’.” The accords are not a treaty. There are no sanctions for non-compliance. A law without sanctions […]

Mission Unaccomplished: Today’s Army

Written by Gary North on November 5, 2016

You are about to see an aesthetically impressive video ad. It is a series of photos. The script gets a key idea across. It has a voice-over by an effective speaker. It has ominous music. In the private sector, this could be produced for under $1,000 if the music and photos were royalty-free. It could […]
