Inspired Idiot of the Week: The FDIC’s Swamp Man

If you want to understand the complete dysfunction of the federal government, look no further than the case of Marty Gruenberg.

Peter Schiff: Don’t buy the Fed’s celebratory gunfire

Did you hear the cheering in the streets? The celebratory gunfire coming from the Federal Reserve? The champagne bottles across Wall Street being uncorked?

“Today, it’s Climate Day,” said President Biden in a speech on January 27, 2021, “which means that today is Jobs Day.” “Dealing with [climate change] and increasing our economic growth and prosperity, are one and the same. When I think of Climate Change, I think of jobs.” These were among the remarks the President made […]

Inspired Idiot: Canadian “Healthcare” Edition

Retired Canadian Army corporal Christine Gauthier lost the use of her legs in a 1989 military training accident. But that never kept her down; she competed in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympics in canoeing, and regularly competes in other similar events. Gauthier lives in Canada, which has a socialized healthcare system. That means her […]
