People Who Won’t Be President

Theo Caldwell We must remember that Democrats are not like normal people. In their world, Barack Obama is a brilliant, inspiring speaker and Joe Biden should be trusted with scissors. It is within this context that someone like Hillary Clinton, a canker sore of a public figure, is considered a natural, even inevitable, leader. Notwithstanding […]

“Lost” Emails Should Be the End of the IRS

Theo Caldwell There is a double indignity to being on the receiving end of a bad lie. The insult of being served with obvious dishonesty is compounded by the liar’s presumption that you are stupid enough to swallow it. Claims by the Internal Revenue Service that they’ve “lost” emails from Lois Lerner and a half-dozen […]

Rand Paul’s Righteous NSA Lawsuit

Theo Caldwell Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is suing the federal government on behalf of everyone who has a mobile phone. For this, he should be thanked. Paul’s spirited opposition to the National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ electronic communications, which his lawsuit seeks to curtail, is consistent with the ideals of individual liberty on which […]

Of course Canada is more business-friendly than the USA

Theo Caldwell A recent report from Bloomberg News ranks Canada as the second-best country in which to do business, behind Hong Kong and ahead of the United States. This comes on the heels of a survey by the Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation, in which Canada was rated sixth in economic freedom, while […]

Charles Krauthammer’s Defense of the ‘Victimless’ NSA

Theo Caldwell In conservative quarters, telling Charles Krauthammer he’s wrong is like giving the Pope a noogie. As a graduate of Harvard Medical School, a board-certified psychiatrist, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, Krauthammer is rightly revered as the most brilliant participant in modern political debate. Unseemly though it may be for a plebian like […]

Chris-Christie

America’s Greatest Problem

Theo Caldwell If this is your first week following the news, you could be forgiven for believing America’s biggest problem is that pylons were placed with extreme prejudice on a New Jersey bridge last September. The closing of the George Washington Bridge by members of Gov. Chris Christie’s staff, apparently as payback for the denial […]

Edward Snowden defends freedom better than Peter King

Theo Caldwell Congressman Peter King is not just a disgrace to the Republican Party, inasmuch as “safety first” politicians like him are a bipartisan disgrace to America. As a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence, King is a reliable and ubiquitous proponent of whatever the […]

Theo Caldwell: America’s Next President Must Restore Freedom

Theo Caldwell It was easier for Arthur Fonzarelli to say he was “wrong” than it has been for many to admit that President Obama “lied” when he repeatedly stated his eponymous health care law would allow people to keep their insurance, or their doctors, if they so wished. Of course the president lied. Politicians lie. […]

Rules, Britannia

Theo Caldwell LONDON – The England of Shakespeare, Newton and Churchill has become a country more concerned with compliance than accomplishment. There is little that evinces this decline so clearly as the conduct of the British tax department and the general attitude of servility toward the nation’s public sector. Last week, Britain’s coalition government conceded […]

Obama, Biden and Economic Patriotism

Theo Caldwell Perhaps the clearest example that Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has abandoned all hope is their slap-dash effort at articulating an economic agenda for a second term. Specifically, in response to trillion-dollar deficits, an imminent tax cliff, and the largest debt in the history of planet Earth, the president issued an absurd little pamphlet […]

The Presidential Race is Over, Cue the Conspiracy Theories

Theo Caldwell This race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly. To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national […]
