Rush Limbaugh, James Pethokoukis, wrong on balanced budget

On Thursday, Rush Limbaugh cited a blog post by American Enterprise Institute scholar James Pethokoukis during his show. The post in question presents the notion of a balanced federal budget in 2015. Unfortunately, the post by Pethokoukis has three major flaws in it that makes its premise – a balanced budget in 2015 – extremely unlikely. First, and most critically, Pethokoukis cites the firm Potomac Research for the following information: … official forecasters will have to radically alter their projections this summer.  The CBO forecast of $845 billion in red ink this year, 5.3% of GDP, is hopelessly outdated; the deficit will fall well ...

FBI Director Comey’s decision to let former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off scot-free for exposing state secrets via an unsecure email server rather than recommend the DOJ press criminal charges against her has more than one person at the bureau foaming at the mouth – and rightfully so. The New York Post has the scoop: Meanwhile, FBI agents expressed their “disappointment” over FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges against Clinton, sources close to the matter told The Post. “FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one source...

FBI director rebuffs Hillary Clinton’s assertion the bureau is conducting mere ‘inquiry’

Former Senator Hillary Clinton for months has been making light of an FBI investigation into her use of a private email server to transmit confidential national secrets when she was secretary of state on President Obama’s watch. FBI Director James Comey, however, isn’t sugarcoating the scrutiny with which he and his team are scouring her emails and the circumstances surrounding her use of the homebrew server. Fox News has the story: Hillary Clinton for months has downplayed the FBI investigation into her private email server and practices as a mere “security inquiry.” But when asked Wednesday by Fox News about Clinton's characterization ...

Editor: U.S. credit will max out when the world ‘loses confidence in the dollars we owe’

A financial historian who has been writing for decades about economics says it's time to stop incurring debt otherwise we will soon find our proverbial credit card has been declined. TIME has the commentary: We owe more than we can easily repay. We spend too much and borrow too much. Worse, we promise too much. We conjure dollar bills by the trillions–pull them right out of thin air. I won’t insist that this can’t go on, because it has. I only say that it will eventually stop. I don’t know the date, but I believe that I know the reason. It will stop when the world loses confidence in the dollars we owe. Come that moment of truth, the ...
