Develop a He-Man Voice

Have you ever listened to a recording of your voice and cringed? Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts Perhaps you were surprised about how nasally or high-pitched it was, or how hard you were to understand. Perhaps in that moment you wished for a manlier, more pleasant-sounding voice. A deep, strong, masculine voice is not without its benefits. Women prefer men with deeper voices and find what they say more memorable than men with higher-pitched ones. And a strong, deep voice can make a man seem more confident and authoritative. But here’s the deal. There isn’t much … Continue reading

Crony Media Have Permanently Disgraced Themselves

Americans have been to the polls. Everything is over but the shouting — by the loser, that is honest Hil. I predicted that the best Trump could have hoped for was winning the popular vote but losing the Electoral College but I got it wrong: the Donald has triumphed. An underfunded campaign — he spent barely half of what she did — with a skeletal crew and without the party’s full backing won out because not all of America agrees with the values of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Springsteen, Hollywood in general and gay marriage in particular. Trump appealed to those who … Continue reading

Chop Shop Hospitals

Cutting for Fun, Profits, and Giggles: Surgically Removing the Appendix, Tonsils, and Spleen According to the World Health Organization, the United States is ranked 38th in life expectancy, indicating that its standard medical practices are inferior to Cuba, South Korea, Costa Rica, Guadeloupe, Singapore, and 31 other nations.  The U.S. system of medicine is only slightly superior to the Czech Republic and Slovenia, despite the U.S. spending approximately 16% of its total expenditures every year for health-related expenses.  Standard medicine in the U.S. is the world’s most expensive, and yet it is among the least safe. Creating Dependence For Repeat … Continue reading

What Now?

The good news is that we dodged a bullet in this election. The bad news is that we don’t know how many other bullets are coming, or from what direction. A Hillary Clinton victory would have meant a third consecutive administration dedicated to dismantling the institutions that have kept America free, and imposing instead the social vision of the smug elites. That could have been the ultimate catastrophe — not just for our time, but for generations yet unborn. In one sense, Donald Trump’s victory was a unique American event. But, in a larger sense, it represents the biggest backlash … Continue reading

Universal Income From the Gov’t

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 vast majority of Americans a comfortable living because robots will have taken their jobs. There is a pretty good chance we end up with a universal basic income, or something like that, due to automation. “I am not sure what else one would do. I … Continue reading

Of Course, I Didn’t Vote

I recently reviewed Electing Not to Vote: Christian Reflections on Reasons for Not Voting. Since I afterward received several e-mails asking me if I voted in the election, I thought I would explain to a wider audience why I didn’t vote. Reading Electing Not to Vote did not persuade me to not vote. I was already a Christian non-voter. Although, as I mentioned in a 2012 article titled “My View of Politics,” I am a student of, and a commentator on, politics, I am not political in any way. Not only do I not vote, I don’t donate to political … Continue reading

Dear President Trump

The recent presidential campaign saw a plethora of open letters directed at Donald Trump, at least two of which were authored and signed by neoconservative foreign policy “experts” denouncing him for challenging their most cherished notions. Now it’s my turn to write an open letter, albeit coming from the opposite direction. Dear President Trump: Unlike what you might expect from a writer for a website like, I’ve given you a pretty fair shake. I have to admit that, at first, I just didn’t get it, but I’m honest enough to admit when I’m wrong. As you began to lay … Continue reading

Show Me, Don’t Tell Me

How many times do you hear it? It goes on all day long Everyone knows everything And no one’s ever wrong Until later –        Show Don’t Tell, RUSH, Lyrics by Neil Peart . From a letter to readers of the New York Times: As we reflect on this week’s momentous result, and the months of reporting and polling that preceded it, we aim to rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of Times journalism. That is to report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor, striving always to understand and reflect all political perspectives and life experiences in the … Continue reading

Nothing About the Trump Presidency Will Be Peaceful

The one bad thing that came out of this most historic of all elections is that, sadly, it looks like there will be no Trump TV after all. But at least the Face of Evil proved me right about her never becoming president of the United States, though I admit I never thought she would come as close as she did. (The fact is that, notwithstanding all the euphoria over Hillary’s embarrassing defeat, but for a few percentage points here and there, she very well could have won. Thus, it’s folly to believe that there’s a mandate for Donald Trump … Continue reading

The Most Famous Home Movie of All Time

Abraham Zapruder’s amateur footage of the John F. Kennedy assassination is one of the world’s most instantly recognizable clips. Zapruder himself doesn’t get quite as much press, so let’s take a look at five things you might not know about the cameraman and the odd journey his film has taken. 1. HE WASN’T A PROFESSIONAL CAMERAMAN Most of us remember Zapruder as the man behind the most famous home movie of all time, but he wasn’t a professional filmmaker. His real work was in the dress game. Zapruder, who had immigrated to New York from the Ukrainian city of Kovel … Continue reading

The US Is the Greatest Debtor Nation in History

Legendary investor, financial commentator and author of several books Jim Rogers told Radio Sputnik that the United States is “the largest debtor nation in the history of the world” and the situation is becoming even more untenable. Rogers was commenting on the US dollar strengthening in recent days. The US currency reached its highest multi-month levels against other major currencies on Monday morning. The surge came on speculation that fiscal-stimulus under President-elect Donald Trump will bolster America’s economic growth and at the same time prompt the Federal Reserve to increase interest rates. Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright lies about owning Gold. Are you at risk? “There’s a lot of turmoil … Continue reading

A Bullet Fired at the Power Elite

In a column published here on April 25th, I wrote about Donald Trump’s recent speech in Buffalo.  At that time, Trump’s polling number against Hillary was 39.5%.  In that column, I made my prediction for November: “Leaving aside the minor parties as the system is rigged against them too, Trump 52; Hillary 48.  Call it the defeat of the elite.” Last week, Trump pulled off the biggest upset in American political history.  The media class, which, based on their coverage of Trump, I began to call “Pravda,” missed it.  The political class missed it.  I have watched these folks for … Continue reading

The Magnificent Pre-Election Blindness

You can judge the competence of a newspaper by the articles that its editors run. Consider this article from The New York times. Here is the headline: Donald Trump and the G.O.P.: The Party of Lincoln, Reagan and, Perhaps, Extinction. The date of this article: October 15. The author: Declan Walsh. He is an Irishman who spent his career in Cairo and Pakistan. He was thrown out of Pakistan. So, the Times put him on the election beat. It wanted a foreigner’s views. It got them, good and hard. You may have heard about the luck of the Irish. In … Continue reading
