Joe Scarborough agrees: Trump's U.N. speech a winner

- The Washington Times

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, normally no fan of Donald Trump's -- to put it mildly -- nonetheless came out in defense of the president's speech before the United Nations. In short, Scarborough actually liked it. Check the skies for flying pigs.

Colin Kaepernick: Apologize

- The Washington Times

Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback known these days more for his on-field displays of anti-Americanism than for his tossing skills, now says he's ready to play. Well, isn't that special. No apology? No play. That's what I say, anyway.

When the government plays referee in a competitive market

Whether intentional or not, a lot of President Trump's rhetoric on trade, both as a candidate and since, has rekindled in some pundits a teary-eyed nostalgia for protectionism.

Government manipulating CPI?

I have been saying for 10 years that the federal government has been adjusting the consumer price index basket of goods by including more low-cost items and reducing higher-cost items. It has done this manipulation in order to minimize its obligations for payment increases by the Social Security Administration and the federal-employee retirement system.

Trump predicted own presidency

Fair warning at the U.N.

No more globaloney. That was the enduring message President Trump had Tuesday for the United Nations. He gave it to the delegates with the bark on, but tempered with just enough of the butter they're accustomed to hearing from their indulgent betters.
