Here’s why it is crucial that the US beat China in the race to build 5G wireless technology

By | Blogs and Other Posts | No Comments

There’s a reason President Trump beat 16 other Republicans in the 2016 presidential primaries and made it to the White House: his America First agenda, which in its essence is a refusal to simply accept business as usual or the status quo. The America First Agenda calls for questioning and examining everything our government is faced with, with one central guiding principle: do what is best for America, its workers and taxpayers, and what is best for America’s future standing in the world. Nowhere is this more evident than the president’s willingness to stand up to China on trade, intellectual…

The critical 5G war

By | Blogs and Other Posts | No Comments

There’s a war going on for your next cell phone network. You might not have heard about it, but last week President Trump made a major move to protect American interests and support American technology superiority. By announcing a broad deployment of 5G networks and financial incentives for American companies to keep pace with China and other competitors, Trump is continuing his administration’s push on the 5G front. This is just the next step in the battle over who will control the future of 5G. Congress, our executive branch, and American companies need to understand what’s at stake with the…

Spying By Any Other Name

By | Blogs and Other Posts | No Comments

Here we go again: Democrats are arguing about what the meaning of “is” is. Unable in their last Senate interrogation to make headway against a real attorney general, William Barr, Democrats have resorted to their favorite strategy: pretending they don’t understand what words mean and carefully forgetting inconvenient facts that everybody knew the day before yesterday. Asked by Senator Jean Shaheen (D-N.H.) whether there was spying on Trump campaign, Attorney General Barr accurately replied, “I think spying did occur.” Democrats and their allies in the media have now spent the past few days wearing out their fainting couches and creating…

Zuckerberg’s Regulation Gambit Is a Scam

By | Blogs and Other Posts | No Comments

The writing is on the wall, and Mark Zuckerberg has finally noticed. Facebook’s litany of failures finally generated enough heat to push Zuckerberg to publish a call for regulation of his company and the social media space in general. I’ve long called for better oversight and accountability for these social media giants and the role they play in our public life, but Zuck’s suggestions ring hollow; like the words of a man whose hand has been caught in the cookie jar, arguing for more sustainable distribution of the cookies he’s already stolen. It’s time to treat these companies not as…

Trump is having the best week — ever

By | Blogs and Other Posts | No Comments

Well, what a week for Donald J. Trump. First, Mueller and his partisan pack of wolves ended their witch-hunt, realizing that even with the awesome power of the special counsel and tens of millions of taxpayer dollars they couldn’t turn a fairytale into fact. The abbreviated report released by Attorney General Bill Barr showed that Mueller cleared Trump of any charges of collusion. While some on the left and in the Democratic Party think that there is some hope for obstruction of justice, someone should probably tell them that was always the weakest of the potential charges against Trump. The…
