Some people might have been tempted to think of John Ellis Bush as the reasonable Republican alternative to Trump, but Bush’s comments about his brother’s […]

Ted Cruz Talks Tough About ISIS, Then Goes On Vacation

Senator Ted Cruz had tough words last night for the Islamic State – also known as as ISIS. During one of two presidential debates for Republican presidential candidates, Cruz seemed to suggest that he would never waver in his fight against ISIS if he won the 2016 election. “What we need is a commander in […]

Mike Huckabee Endorsed Sending Advanced Weapons To Iran

Given Mike Huckabee’s comfort with actually giving weapons to Iran that the country’s leaders could use against Israel, what rational justification does Huckabee have for saying that denying weapons to Iran is dangerous for Israel?

A few years ago, I looked into the ties that connected the top 10 federal contractors of 2010 and 2011, and last year I took an updated look at the top contractors of 2013. Let’s return to that subject again using federal contracting data for 2014, using files released just last month by the Federal […]

Lindsey Graham’s Top Military Strategy: Forget History

Yesterday, Peregrin Wood joked about Lindsey Graham’s strange claim that, if he is elected President, he will “secure the future”. No, Lindsey Graham isn’t really a time traveling agent, but in another sense, he is trying to use his presidential campaign to rewrite the past.

Unfortunately, Graham’s campaign to rewrite the past has to do […]

Instead of Going to War in Iraq, the U.S. Could Have Paid for Four Years’ Free University Education

Yesterday, I noted that the 21st Century war in Iraq has cost the United States 818 billion dollars, in addition to the loss of life, the loss of health, the loss of stability and the loss of trust. Forget all the unquantifiable losses for a moment and focus on the money. This is a lot […]
