A worthwhile, entertaining, and original take on White House dynamics. Troy demonstrates that Trump administration internal battles are not out of the ordinary. That is true; but what is unprecedented is the the undermining not of fellow aides, but of the president himself. Continue reading

Democrats own FATCA, which is wreaking havoc with even basic financial services available to Americans abroad. Those nine million Americans are feeling its effects, and they are not happy. Expect them to vote accordingly.
Yes, there have been noxious anti-Semitc comments by one of the candidates: not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. Journalists scouring only the Trump record for anti-Semitism–but not both sides equally–betray their own insincerity, and dishonorably misuse this serious issue for partisan purposes.
