Inflation is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but what does it actually mean? What causes it? And how does it impact everyday Americans? In this blog post, we will explore all of those questions and more. We’ll start by defining inflation and then move on to discuss the factors that cause it. We’ll also take a look at the Federal Reserve’s role in combating inflation and the role of monetary policy in dealing with this important economic issue. Finally, we’ll talk about the relationship between inflation and a recession.
A long, protracted invasion of Ukraine is a win for Russian President Vladimir Putin. The longer Putin continues his invasion the more innocent people will be massacred, and the more likely it will be that Eastern European Countries that border Ukraine will become less supportive of the broader objectives of the European-American coalition in support of Ukraine.
I’ve snuck into a terrorist training camp to conduct reconnaissance, almost got pulled out of a car and beaten to death by a mob, and my name has been on a ballot for public election eight different times. In all of these situations, I had a feeling of nervousness because I didn’t know the outcome of the situation I was in. I’m experiencing a similar feeling on the eve of my first book American Reboot being released into the wild.
I’m a former member of Congress, cybersecurity executive, and officer in the Central Intelligence Agency. “American Reboot: An Idealist’s Guide to Getting Big Things Done” is my first book.
“American Reboot” is a classic American story and a blueprint to build a future based on the shared values that have solved the challenges of the past.
With Russian troops conducting a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, citizens of the United States and European Union concerned about the possibility of a world war have been asking why does Russia want Ukraine? The current crisis has roots going back to 2014 when Russian President Vladimir Putin first violated the Ukrainian border by invading two parts of the country – Crimea in the south and the Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine. Early Thursday morning on February 24, 2022, Russian forces began a military action to assault the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and remove Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy from power in an effort to topple the Ukrainian government.
American domestic policies should be based on a simple reality — prosperity is a product of empowering people not the government. Individuals should have the freedoms to choose where they go to school, where they want to live, which doctors they want to visit, what business they want to start, and, ultimately, who they want to be.
Most people would be shocked to learn that Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden have something in common. The thing they have in common is that when the National Security Council of each of these presidents were required to submit to Congress a National Security Strategy for the United States — a document which defined USA foreign policy – they were all based on the same national interests.
I got a Commodore 64 computer in 1985 when I was eight years old. My Uncle Steve was upgrading to a Commodore 128 so he gave my brother, sister and me his old computer. I spent a lot of time playing Oregon Trail on that computer, but when it inevitably broke down I would have to go real old school and use a typewriter to do my homework when I was in middle school. Yes, I said a typewriter.
What the heck is a Goth? That’s a question that I’m sure was frequently asked in Rome in 476 AD — the year the Western Roman Empire fell after more than half a millenium of being the most powerful empire on the planet. The Goths, one of several Germanic tribes considered to be marauding barbarians, had been invading the Western Roman Empire on and off since the middle of the 3rd Century.
