If GOP Tax Bill Passes, here is how it will tank the economy

Share

We’ve been down this road before (3x in fact), and each time it was a disaster. But Republicans are selling #VoodooEconomics to us again like it’s never been tried before. Here’s what will happen.

Evidence Emerges Russia Meddled in #Brexit As Well (just as I speculated last April)

Share

Sorry conspiracy theorists, but the evidence continues to mount that Russian meddling took place across Europe as well.

Predictions for 2017: It’s the end of the world as we know it.

Will Trump Resolve His Business Conflicts Before His Inauguration? Doubtful.

Share

During the primaries, Trump dismissed potential conflicts of interest between his business and being president by minimizing the importance of his business. Yet, he can’t bring himself to liquidate his empire.

Mugsy’s Electoral Predictions (2016 edition)

Share

There are 12 states labeled “toss ups”. But really, there are only four, and Trump’s only path to victory is if he sweeps them.

The Most Frightening Thing This Election is that One Of Them Will Win

Share

Happy Halloween. And with the latest round of “scandals” ping-ponging between the candidates each week (Trump’s sexual misconduct, now Hillary’s emails), the more I dread what’s in store for us over the next four years (notice I did NOT say “four to eight” years.) Last February, despite being an enthusiastic Bernie supporter, I conceded that if the choice […]

CNN Poll: 51 Percent of Hillary Vote is Just Anti-Trump. What happens if Romney goes indie?

Share

Republicans are actively courting Mitt Romney to run as an Independent just as a new poll reveals more than half of Clinton’s support comes from the “anti-Trump” vote.

Claims Hillary Has Better Chance of Winning Not Only False, but now moot amid GOP chaos

Share

For months now, many Clinton supporters have been citing Hillary’s chances of defeating Trump in the General election in November as their reason for voting for her. They just don’t believe that an admitted “Democratic Socialist” can win the election. As far as I’m aware, there has never been an official poll taken of Clinton supporters […]

Cruz Comfortably Beats Trump in Iowa. Dems still too close to call. Suspicious Clinton bounce repealed.

Share

Going into the wee hours of the morning, I was watching Hillary Clinton’s delegate lead shrink all night, when around 9pm CST, with 18% of precincts left to go, leading by only 11 delegates, the Clinton campaign declared victory despite all the pollsters saying it was “too close to call.” Her lead continued to shrink with every update. By […]

Predictions for 2016

Share

Our annual “Predictions for the Coming Year” edition. A little schadenfreude as we laugh at the predictions of others, grade how I did last year, and prognosticate what’s to come in 2016.

CORRECTION UPDATE on Last Week’s Jobs Report

Share

I‘m on sabbatical this week, but a quick follow-up on last weeks “expectation” that the October Jobs Report was going to be “disappointing” to say the least, only for it to in fact be spectacular. Serves me right for listening to pundits of the Obama Administration. One of the main reasons for the pundits expecting a […]

The Tinfoil Hat Crowd Now Controls the GOP

Share

“We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims.” proclaimed an angry bigoted man man at a Trump campaign event last Thursday. “We know our current president IS one” he snarks. “Right!”, responds the current GOP front-runner. “Wasn’t even born in America, YOU know THAT!” continues the supporter. “We have Training Camps growing, where […]
