Reconstituting America

When considering the things that have made America the most prosperous and powerful nation in the history of the planet, there are many options. Some would say it’s the people and our embrace (albeit reluctant at times) of diversity that built this nation of immigrants. Others might point to serendipity; we are rich with natural resources and favorable conditions through which a nation can flourish. There is, of course, a spirit of excellence that has been instilled in our leadership since…

I Didn’t Like Trump BEFORE His Foreign Policy Debacle. Now, I’m terrified.

Seven months ago, Donald Trump was exposed as having pretty much no idea how foreign policy works. It’s not just that he didn’t know the names of countries or leaders; that can be corrected. After all, it’s been 47 years since he had to study up on anything outside of real estate and multi-level marketing schemes, so we can assume that he’ll get up to speed…

…or can he?


His famous slips of not knowing that China wasn’t part of TPP or that the nuclear triad was more than just about…

The Last Leg Begins with Indiana, the Crossroads of America

As expected, Donald Trump swept the Northeast states. It’s important to understand that it was expected because it means that nothing has changed in the math. For Trump to get to 1,237, he needs to win in Indiana.

What this really means is that for Ted Cruz to stay alive, he must win Indiana. He needs to win most the state delegates which are winner-takes-all. He needs to win most of the congressional districts which are also winner-takes-all. If he can do this, then the rest of the…

If He Can’t Man Up Against Cruz, How Will He Handle Other World Leaders? #MakeDonaldDebateAgain

After losing every debate he’s been in, Donald Trump is obviously reluctant to debate Ted Cruz. He has the lead and he lacks understanding of the issues, so conventional wisdom dictates that he should avoid them at all costs. Unfortunately, he also desperately needs the practice.

By Donald’s estimation, he’s won every debate. Of course, he refers to the “online polls” as he puts it, citing Trump-friendly Drudge Report and other “polls” that rely on mob fanboyism rather than analysis and…
