Questions For The Democratic Debate

We all know how dogged, tough and determined the mainstream media are when questioning Republican Presidential candidates. But when it comes to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic debate, it’s a very different story.

Donald Trump: It’s All About the Energy, Stupid!

To be a superstar success in both show business and sales you must have energy and electricity. Politics is the perfect combination of show business and sales. At the highest levels of power where politics and media intersect, all the charm, brains, and talent in the world is wasted and powerless without energy and electricity. Ask Bobby Jindal. Without energy, even a candidate with all the money in the world is anonymous and invisible Ask Jeb Bush. That’s why your scorecard while watching Wednesday night’s debate on CNN should be built around one thing only- who brings the energy and electricity.

Donald Trump: Candidate for Our Age

The only presidential candidate who understands the importance of celebrity branding to politics is Donald Trump. He is in a word- RELENTLESS. He relentlessly brands himself 24/7. He relentlessly attacks 24/7. He relentlessly sells 24/7. He relentlessly pitches 24/7. And he does it all with RELENTLESS chutzpah. Brilliant.

GOP Roadmap to Victory: Become the Party of the Middle Class

It’s happening right now in America. Billionaires and big business are teaming up with Obama and his socialist cabal to destroy the middle class.  Unfortunately, the tone deaf GOP has not only allowed them to do it–but they’ve managed to

Obama the 'Manchurian Candidate'

The greatest conspiracy in world history is being carried out by the real-life “Manchurian Candidate”: President Barack Obama. My definition of a “Manchurian Candidate” is a person who hates everything America stands for and whose goal is to win the

Obama's 'Sham-Wow' Presidency

It’s time to see Obamacare for what it is: The world’s first trillion dollar Ponzi Scheme perpetrated with lies, misrepresentations, and pure fraud by a late night Ginsu knife salesman named Obama. But Obamacare is just the tip of the

The Obama Farewell Tour: Size Matters

The Romney landslide I predicted back on May 30th, and in the media virtually every day since then, is materializing. The signs are everywhere that Obama is enjoying his farewell tour. These are the last days of his political career.

The Obama Farewell Tour: Size Matters

Is America Becoming a Banana Republic?

Barack Obama was warned that our Libyan Embassy faced an attack on 9/11 and did nothing. Zero. Zip. Four brave Americans died, including our Ambassador. The media says nothing. Before the attack, the Obama administration turned down a request from our

Is America Becoming a Banana Republic?

Romney Is 'Bullworth'

Do you remember the movie “Bullworth?” Warren Beatty was a candidate for U.S. Senate who had a big problem. He told the raw, unvarnished truth. The media was shocked and horrified. Voters were befuddled and angry – at first. Can you

Romney Is 'Bullworth'

Obama's Jewish Problem

When Mitt Romney said in his speech at the Republican National Convention that, “Obama has thrown Israel under the bus,” Mitt obviously knew more than the rest of us. Within days of that speech, the picture of Obama’s betrayal of

Obama: Union No Show?

What a great week this has been for U.S. taxpayers. As my hero Ronald Reagan would say, “It’s morning in America again.” The dominance of public employee unions was broken in a big way for the first time in history. Not

Obama: Union No Show?

Message to GOP on SuperCommittee: Embrace the Joy of Failure

The Congressional “Super Committee” tasked with cutting the debt has failed. Good. Embrace the joy of failure. Sometimes failure works out for the best. Because in this case “failure” leads to the Holy Grail: $1.2 Trillion in forced spending cuts.

What the Joe Paterno Scandal and the Penn State Riots Say About America

As I write this commentary, Joe Paterno has been fired as Penn State football coach — effective immediately. Thousands of Penn State college students are in the streets, angry, sad, disillusioned, emotionally wrecked, overturning cars, and chanting Joe Paterno’s name.

The Economic Cost of Obama's Union Label

I’ve made some uncannily accurate predictions in the past 3 years. Back in 2008, as I ran for Vice President of the United States on the Libertarian Presidential ticket, I made a prediction I’m very proud of today. I said,

Irene: The Most Hyped Storm of the Century

Politicians and the media constantly ask “What’s the matter with the economy?” The answer was on glorious display this past weekend. Ironically, it is the politicians and media who are ruining it. “The storm of the century” turned out to

The Obama 'Axis of Evil'

Obama finally got something right. Can you believe it? In a recent interview, Obama said he is confident we will not enter a double dip recession. Brilliant Sherlock. No, we are not entering a double dip. That is because we

Obamageddon: Why the U.S. Economy Is the Titanic Headed for the Iceberg

America is in shambles from sea to shining sea. Unemployment is at Great Depression levels. Real Estate is collapsing. The stock market is crumbling. Retail sales are vanishing. Consumer confidence is plummeting. Inflation is skyrocketing (on the products that matter-

How the Debt Addicts are Blaming the Victims

Can you even imagine blaming a rape victim for being raped, or a terrorist victim for being murdered by terrorists? Of course not. In a sane world, it is the rapist and terrorist that is blamed for the crime, not

Ayn Rand Was Right: Wealthy Are on Strike Against Obama

The U.S. economy is crumbling. Businesses are collapsing in record numbers. Jobs have disappeared. Tax revenues are down dramatically. Coincidence? Everything happening today under Obama resembles the storyline of Ayn Rand’s famous book, Atlas Shrugged, one of the most popular

Twitter for Schmucks

Have you seen the movie Dinner for Schmucks? Now we have a sequel, Twitter for Schmucks starring Congressman Anthony Weiner. I’m a Libertarian. I don’t want government in my bedroom, or my boardroom, so I’m generally hands-off (excuse the pun)

Has the Greatest Depression Already Begun?

I am a successful small businessman and a patriot who loves America and always sees its greatness. I am also an optimistic, positive thinker who always sees the glass half full. But not this time. I predicted doom if Obama

Obama Turns His Back on Israel

Mark the date – Thursday May 19th. It’s the day the leopard showed his spots. It’s the day Obama stabbed Israel in the back. It’s the day he told Israel, DROP DEAD. For the first time in history an American

Does Anyone in the GOP Want to Beat Obama?

Republican Presidential contenders are melting like tourists on the Vegas Strip, without sunscreen, on a 117 degree day in July. Doesn’t anyone in the GOP actually want to run against the worst President in modern American history? It can’t be

The Unraveling of a Ponzi Scheme

The news media in this country are in a stupor. Either out of ignorance, or complete leftist bias and fraud to protect their socialist hero Barack Obama, the mainstream media has turned a blind eye toward the enormous disaster facing

Why Does Obama Hate Small Business?

I’ve started more than a dozen small businesses. For one, over $20 million was invested by me and investors who believed in me. I’ve paid payrolls, health insurance, payroll taxes, workers comp, and unemployment insurance for hundreds of employees. Because

A Teachable Moment: How Obama Would Solve the NFL Labor Crisis

Some are now suggesting that President Obama get involved in the NFL strike talks. I was his college classmate at Columbia University and have studied his political career for years. My record of predicting where Obama will come down on

Comparing the Life of a Government Employee with the Private Sector

The world is backwards. It should be the taxpayers striking in the streets of Wisconsin. But, private sector taxpayers can’t afford to take a day off, let alone a week. Doesn’t that say everything? Only government employees with their powerful

Obama’s State of Union: ‘Cash for Flunkers’

I agree with the liberal blogosphere- Obama’s State of the Union was “Reaganesque.” Well written and well delivered. Awe-inspiring. Except that it was all distortions, false promises, and bait and switch. Don’t believe a word. It was pure sales and
