Student Loan “Forgiveness” is a Ponzi Scheme

Since taking the White House, Joe Biden has done absolutely nothing to make good on his campaign promise to “forgive all undergraduate student loan debt.” That is… until last week. With much fanfare, Biden announced the “cancellation” of 300 billion dollars in loans. I’m sure that this timing is a total coincidence and has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that midterms are in 10 weeks. Not to mention that his pause on loan payments just happens to expire right after the midterms end. But I’m sure that this funny timing is all a *complete* matter of chance. Our President has just been really busy doing… uh, Presidential stuff. Like spending all our money and ammunition on foreign wars. And telling gun owners they don’t stand a chance against his F-15s. And inventing entirely new words.  While we’re recapping federal government activity, remember when Nancy Pelosi said back in

How Government Cronies Made Air Travel Miserable

I remember a time when taking a trip on a plane was a fun experience. A privilege to experience, even! Flash forward to today, and it’s an entirely different story… If you’ve taken a flight lately, you know exactly what I mean. Between a months-long onslaught of canceled flights, seemingly constant delays, a sea of lost luggage, and so-called “customer service” that’s become a parody of itself… traveling by air ain’t what it used to be. And while it’s tempting to chalk up all these issues to the boogeymen of greedy capitalists and profiteering airline executives, you’d be misdirecting most of your blame. To really understand, we have to rewind to March of 2020. Picture this: America is in a state of panic as a virus — supposedly from a Chinese wet market — sweeps the globe. Billions of people are urged (and forced…) to stay inside at all costs.

The IRS Auditing Army Grows by 87,000

Yesterday, the U.S. House passed a bill called the “Inflation Reduction Act.” You’d think that would mean that we’re finally shutting down the Federal Reserve (AKA, the Creature from Jekyll Island) or cutting government spending. But you would be wrong. Unfortunately, the names of congressional bills almost never convey the legislation’s actual meaning… Patriot Act, anyone? Build Back Better? Green New Deal? In fact, the “inflation reduction act” is more likely to get your family audited by the IRS than it is to make your groceries and gas cost any less. The bill, which just cleared Congress and is now headed for Biden’s desk, just confirmed “climate” spending, a raise in taxes, and funding for 87,000 new IRS Agents. Even worse? These thousands of new jobs are being added specifically to audit more people.  As Twitter user Hannah Cox astutely noted, there are only 727 billionaires in the United States.

On Recessions and Moving Goalposts

Let’s be real: America’s economy is in the tank. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist (or economist) to figure that one out. Heck, you just have to set foot in a grocery store! But, dire as our situation is, it’s still not a recession… At least, not according to the “experts.” Never mind that our economy has experienced two straight quarters of negative economic growth. (Until about last week, this was the literal definition of a recession.) The thing is, recessions aren’t so good for politicians. Especially not in a big election year. So, rather than addressing the root causes of our horrible economy, our politicians are doing what they do best: changing the terms. That said, it’s no surprise that Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is now claiming we’re not in a recession: she says we’re just in a “period of transition in which growth is slowing.”

Indoctrination Lessons from the Kremlin

Propaganda is everywhere. We’re subject to it under the guise of “public service announcements” to get vaccinated, wear our masks, and stay inside. We see it in movies, on TV, and all over our social media feeds. But the most effective propaganda is the kind that goes unnoticed. The Russian government understands this. It’s why they’re putting on a full-fledged campaign to “infect” their youth with pro-Russian patriotism. And unsurprisingly, their vehicle of choice is public schools. “We need to know how to infect [children] with our ideology… Our ideological work is aimed at changing consciousness.” That’s the latest from Sergei Norokov, a high-ranking bureaucrat at the Kremlin, the power center of Russia’s government. Through nationwide efforts to smoosh pro-Western sentiments and increase support for the war against Ukraine, Russian public school students have been exposed to all manner of propaganda. One student interviewed for the New York Times shared

What’s a “Liberal World Order” Anyway?

This week, a White House official named Brian Deese appeared on CNN. As a top economic advisor to Joe Biden, Deese found himself—perhaps unexpectedly—in the hot seat over America’s astronomical cost of living. (I mean… how bad do things have to be for CNN to critically question a Democrat?!) “What do you say to those families who say ‘look, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years?’” the host asked. Deese responded, “Look, this is about the future of the liberal world order and we must stand firm…” He then continued to give the most pathetic defense of the current economic situation I’ve heard in a hot minute. While I could wax poetic (as I often do) about the decades of corruption and disastrous policy that brought us to where we are today, I want to focus on the whole “liberal world order” part of
