Millennials Prefer a Socialist, Communist or Fascist Nation
By Tudor Dixon, CEO of Lumen Student News providing unbiased news to America’s middle and high school students

A recent poll by YouGov finds 58% of millennials would prefer to live in “a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one,” the Washington Times reports, with a staggering 44% preferring socialism. “This troubling turn highlights widespread historical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago,” Marion Smith, Executive Director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, said in a statement. Only two years ago, the same group found 36% of millennials have a positive opinion of socialism - so the trend is troubling, to say the least. [more...]

Franco a Fiasco for the Oscars?

It is expected that the Oscars telecast will follow the lead of the other awards shows and make Hollywood’s sex scandals a frazzled thread woven throughout the proceedings. Of concern for the Academy, though, is something involving actor James Franco. The Hollywood star has been viewed as an actual contender, not only for a nomination for an Academy Award for his work in “The Disaster Artist,” but also as a top tier candidate for a Best Actor trophy at the Oscar telecast. Critics are raving about Franco’s portrayal of the real-life director of “The Room,” which is said by critics and fans to be the worst film ever made. The particular predicament for the Academy, at this extraordinary time in Hollywood history, are some allegations that have been raised against Franco concerning sexually inappropriate behavior. Five women have accused him of inappropriate or sexually exploitative conduct, according to an investigation by The Los Angeles Times. [more...]

Trump’s One Year Check-up

It’s just about one year since president-elect Trump was inaugurated president. It’s been a contentious first year in office and the question is: “Who’s ahead in the on-going battle to run America and steer the ship of State?” Is it President Trump, the old mainstream media that is fighting to influence Americans, or is the out-of-control Democratic Party that offers only resistance and vitriolic rhetoric against this populist president? Let’s examine the economy, foreign policy, the old mainstream media and the Dems... [more...]

Why Does North Korea Have Nukes?

The reason lunatic North Korea has nukes is Jimmy Carter, who, when acting as emissary from President Bill Clinton, promised that the United States would not halt Communist North Korea’s nuclear program – and would, instead, provide its dictatorial dynasty with billions of dollars in aid. If nuclear missile attacks become real – God forbid! – remember that former Presidents Carter, Clinton, and Obama are to blame. And when you see Mika Brzezinski attacking President Trump on MSNBC, remember that her father was President Carter’s National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who proposed that our Persian Gulf fleet shoot down Israeli warplanes if they tried to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities.

43,000 to Lose Their Jobs as Construction Firm Collapses

A major construction firm with multiple contracts across the globe has collapsed. Carillion, which employs 43,000 people worldwide reported it has no other choice than to close. Carillion has roughly 19,000 employees in the UK and 10,000 in Canada. Three quarters of its revenue comes from the UK where it holds major building contracts with the government. Back in late 2007, shares of Carillion were worth $6.30, but last week that dropped to about $0.17. [more...]

Stormy Weather

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we examine the state of Donald Trump since Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury was published. What has this book done to Trump? Has it deflated him? Is he suddenly vulnerable? What about Steve Bannon? Is he now out to pay back Trump for engineering his removal from Breitbart? Has Rupert Murdoch begun to turn on Trump in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post? What about Fox News - will Murdoch move it away from supporting Trump? Is this, as Michael Wolff says, "The end of this presidency?"  [more...]

A Lot of Blood on a Lot of Hands Created the Iran Threat

The mullocracy in Iran is bragging that it has crushed the demonstrations against the regime that broke out on December 28. Regime change from within still remains a forlorn hope, as the theocratic police state has employed its usual brutal violence and intimidation to deny the protestors any momentum. Burning identification cards and electrical bills seem the last recourse for those brave Iranians abandoned by the so-called “global community” that averts its gaze from the destruction of human rights it pretends to worship. [more...]

Apple Under Investigation

Late last year, Apple issued an apology for deliberately slowing down old iPhone models through software updates. Many of its customers had suspected this for years, and now legal action has been taken against Apple for its actions. Apple apologized, but said that it slowed down the phones to prolong the life of older phone models with failing batteries. But now, Apple is under investigation in France. It is the third country to investigate Apple following Israel and the U.S., but it is the only country where the alleged offense is a crime.  If found guilty, Apple may have to pay a penalty of up to 5% of their annual turnover, which is huge for a multi-billion-dollar company, and some of its executives may even face jail time.

How Hillary’s FBI Allies Undermined Trump Before the Election

Peter Strzok wanted some insurance. The senior FBI figure, who had participated in the Hillary e-mail investigation, interviewed Flynn and had been part of Team Mueller, wasn't looking to State Farm for his insurance needs. Chatting with his mistress, an FBI lawyer who worked for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Strzok worried that Trump might win. “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office - that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected - but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” he wrote. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.” [more...]

Poll Shows Growing Public Opposition to NAFTA

An independent public opinion poll published late last year shows growing public awareness of U.S. job loss due to imports, as well as growing public support of the view that NAFTA has been bad for the U.S. The poll was carried out by the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy, surveying 2,745 Americans. The report is entitled: Globalization and Trade, A Study of American Attitudes. The researchers conducting the poll compared the results to similar polls in 2016 and in 1999. The results show a clear trend of greater awareness of the negative consequences of unfettered free trade. [more...]

Wolff at the Door

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we examine how the Trump White House has been rocked by the revelations in Michael Wolff's new book, FIRE AND FURY - the disdain his senior staffers have for him; the private doubts they have about his competence; the vicious backbiting and competition among the various factions surrounding him. How does this impact the GOP, the conservative movement and the Mueller Investigation? [more...]

Attorney General Sessions Attacks Violent Crime

While campaigning last year, then candidate Trump, often referred to the growing opioid epidemic and the need to combat violent criminals and organizations. On February 9, 2017, within weeks of being sworn in to office, he signed an Executive Order establishing a task force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety. In furtherance of the presidential order, Attorney General Sessions established the national Public Safety Partnership (PSP) in June 2017. PSP provides an innovative framework for DOJ to enhance its support of state, tribal, and local law enforcement officers and prosecutors in the investigation, prosecution, and deterrence of violent crime, especially that related to gun violence, gangs, and drug trafficking. The timing of the initiative couldn’t be better. [more...]

Trump’s Twitter Account is Keeping Us Safe

Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, concisely highlighted the usefulness of the president’s Twitter account by explaining the diplomatic value of the “nuclear button” tweet. During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” when asked whether the president’s tweet was a good idea, Haley responded, “I think that [Trump] always has to keep Kim on his toes. It’s very important that we don’t ever let him get so arrogant that he doesn’t realize the reality of what would happen if he started a nuclear war.” Haley said North Korea should clearly understand that the United States means business when it comes to Kim.

Expert Predictions for 2018 - Pt. III

Days ago, as the northeast was battered by some of the coldest weather in a century, global warming huckster Al Gore claimed that the chill was a sign that Earth is getting warmer, not colder. Gore is being deceptive. Global warmists say that snow happens when warmth evaporates water into the air, where it freezes into snow. The weather bomb remembered as the March Blizzard of 1888 buried New York City in snowdrifts 30 feet deep. But January 2018’s record cold caused relatively little snow. It was mostly just Arctic cold that could cause frostbite in minutes, or even death. [more...] [Read Part I here...] [Read Part II here...]

Can Oprah Win the 2020 Presidential Election?

Given the long-range trends and short-range trends in play that favor conservative candidates, it is unlikely that Oprah Winfrey might get elected president. Because of her popularity, her voter intensity would probably be much higher that Hillary Clinton; but her political stands would make it difficult for her to win. Given the divided and fragmented Democratic Party, it is possible that she could win the nomination.  She might also secure a nomination from a third party as well. But, it’s highly improbable that she will be elected president in 2020. [more...]

How to Make China Pay for U.S. Solar Industry Expansion

Later this month, President Trump faces one of the biggest trade decisions of his presidency. By Jan. 26th, the president must decide whether to levy duties on solar cell and module imports, and what level those duties should be. The International Trade Commission (ITC) found in September that the industry has suffered injury from imports from China and elsewhere, and unanimously recommended that duties should be levied. The two complainants, struggling solar manufacturing companies Suniva and SolarWorld, have each said the recommended duties are not high enough to save the manufacturing industry, while the SEIA (the national trade association for the U.S. solar industry) has loudly protested that duties could have a negative impact on industry growth. [more...]

NAFTA Withdrawal Likely to Boost Stock Market

Withdrawal from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is likely to boost stock prices, employment and economic growth. Republican Senators told the White House earlier this week that NAFTA withdrawal will harm the stock market. But that claim is based on outdated, incorrect views on trade and investment. America’s economy and wages grew faster before the modern trade agreement era. But our manufacturing members saw substantial growth last year in part because of trade agreement uncertainty and a new focus from business on finding sources of supply within the U.S. The new approach is raising production and employment at U.S. manufacturers. Their biggest problem now has become finding skilled workers to meet new demand. [more...]

Hollywood Picks ‘Man Show’ Kimmel to Host Post-Weinstein Oscars

It is difficult to decipher what exactly is driving some of Hollywood’s questionable decisions of late. On the heels of the entertainment industry’s choice of Anita Hill as sexual harassment czar, the announcement that former co-host of “The Man Show” and current late-night political pawn Jimmy Kimmel will once again take the Oscar stage as host of the show.

This will be Kimmel’s second consecutive year as emcee, despite the fact that the results of his last go-round were anything but stellar. The telecast scored low ratings, and there was the infamous gaffe in which “La La Land” was mistakenly announced as the winner for Best Picture, when in fact “Moonlight” was the movie that had taken the top spot.

It could be that Kimmel’s recent hyper-political correctness caught the attention of the Academy, particularly when he jettisoned comedy to do opinion pieces on controversial political topics, including health care and gun control. He purposely used his show to lobby against the effort of the Republican Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, and he received the gratitude of many on the left for helping to thwart the legislation.

Expert Predictions for 2018 - Pt. II

I predict, in the January 2018 issue of Real Money Perspectives, many factors may devastate the American economy in the New Year. Most of Europe’s nations are being dissolved into the new empire of the European Union, in which national borders no longer control immigration or trade. As I explained in Money, Morality & The Machine, this “Superstate,” as founder Jean Monnet envisioned it, was to be created piecemeal, by deception, with Europeans denied a democratic vote on whether to undo their national identity. The EU would be - and now is - run by an elite of unelected progressive Eurocrats. [more...]  [Read Part I here...]

The Workaholic-in-Chief Wins

Last year, my article “Trump the Workaholic-in-Chief” explained how this was all going to work out. While both parties in Congress did their best to obstruct Trump’s cabinet picks and derail his agenda, they were largely unsuccessful. The reason is that they completely failed to understand the value of his workaholism and work ethic. And he managed to get all this accomplished while playing even more golf than Obama. Unlike his predecessor, who would do anything possible to avoid the dreadful Oval Office and putting in a full day’s work, Trump actually uses the golf course as an extension of the workplace. Key lawmakers and those important to getting things done are kept virtually captive for 3-4 hours. During that time, they are subjected to a non-stop charm offensive that helps Trump get his way.

FrontPageMag’s Man of the Year: President Trump

2017 was the year that the United States of America got up off its knees. It was the year that we stopped following the world and started leading it. It was the year that our booming economy accomplished the impossible. It was the year that we became a great nation again. And one man is responsible for that: President Trump promised to make America great again, and every day, it’s happening. Factory workers and small businesspeople, farmers and ranchers, soldiers and police officers are waking up to a renewed America. Time chose a social justice hashtag as its ‘Thing of the Year.’  We’re choosing the man who turned the country around as our “Man of the Year.” [more...]

Blue Wave, Red Wave, or Conservative Wave?

After some fleeting electoral successes, some Democrats are anticipating a blue wave, not a red wave, or a conservative wave in the 2018 Congressional elections. But, are they wrong? Some Republicans, fearful that Congress has not repealed and replaced Obamacare decisively and has been slow to implement the Trump agenda, worry 2018 might not be a good year for the GOP. Are these fears justified? [more...]

Oil Rises to $60 - Highest in 2.5 Years

Following a pipeline explosion in Libya, crude oil prices have risen to over $60 a barrel. This marks the highest oil has been in 2.5 years. Reports from Libya’s state-run National Oil Corporation stated that the explosion jeopardized output by 100,000 barrels a day. U.S. crude oil rose by 2.5% last week, this was following a spike it had last month when the Keystone pipeline was shut down due to an oil spill. But prices still remain low compared to the $100 per barrel price seen 3 years ago. The past couple of years have been tough for the oil industry, and it has been trying to rebound for some time now.

NPR For Conservatives

John LeBoutillier, the former GOP congressman from New York with a reputation for being genteel and unflappable, might seem an unlikely figure to chronicle a revolution; yet, that is precisely what the conservative pundit and top Canadian talker and co-host Arlene Bynon, are bent on doing. Together, they are hosts of the hot new show, Revolution_The Podcast. [more...]

'Trump - The Art of the Insult'
Directed by Joel Gilbert

In the new film, Trump: The Art of the Insult, Donald Trump dominated the 2016 Presidential face with a master plan of political incorrectness, using The Art of the Insult to brand political opponents and bash the media all the way to the White House. In the film, Donald Trump emerges as a marketing genius and performance artist who, despite being a Manhattan billionaire, captured the hearts of middle America. Critics are calling The Art of the Insult “the most entertaining political documentary ever!” [more...]

Expert Predictions for 2018 - Pt. I

The dawn of the Petro-Yuan: will it doom the dollar? When President Richard Nixon in 1971 suddenly severed the dollar’s anchor to gold – fearful that allies such as France were about to demand all the gold in Fort Knox in exchange for their mountains of paper dollars – its “exorbitant privilege,” as one French official called it, as the world’s Reserve Currency was saved by a deal with Saudi Arabia, which kept selling its oil only for dollars in exchange for the U.S. military’s arms and blood defending the Saudis. In other words, they would prop up the dollar if we propped up the ruling Muslim Saudi royal family. We switched from the precious metal-backed dollars of our Constitution to “Petro-Dollars.” China now threatens this fundamental part of the “international order” by being on the verge of creating the “Petro-Yuan” through contracts backed by gold to sell oil in exchange not for dollars but for China’s currency. This will send the value of gold soaring, ZeroHedge predicts, as “China Kneecaps The Dollar.” The Petro-Yuan could at least share and thereby dilute the power of America’s global reserve currency monopoly – and might be the beginning of its end. [more...]

Box Office Down Again in 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, the entertainment industry is discovering it has to deal with the reality that this year is turning out to be the worst ever for the Hollywood brand. The sex scandals surrounding movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and other major Hollywood players certainly did not help matters. Neither did the vitriolic politics that routinely spewed from left-wing celebrities’ mouths and wound up alienating folks from coast to coast. This year the movie box office, once the primary gauge of the entertainment business, suffered yet another decline. Despite the fact that over the last twenty years or so gross box-office revenues saw an increase, for the last decade and a half, actual ticket sales have consistently taken a dive. [more...]

Spreading the Wealth Trump Style - Get Ready for More Tax Cuts

Trump has cracked the Rosetta Stone of getting things through Congress. The congressional tax cut saga has just concluded, and Trump won yet again. But this is just the beginning. Assuming the economy strengthens substantially ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections, and that Republicans not only retain their majorities in both houses, but also enlarge them, get ready for the next round of tax cuts. Congress lives to fight one battle at a time. Trump always has the larger picture in mind. While this tax bill is less than perfect, upon its success, it sets the stage for more tax cuts during Trump’s seven remaining years. Yes, if the economy is growing at a 4-6% rate come 2020, you’re looking at four more years. [more...]

The End of the ACA Mandate and the Beginning of Healthcare Consumerism

The passage of the Republican tax reform bill with the removal of the mandate is a win for the American patient and doctor.

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, there has been a steady unraveling of the American healthcare system and a loss of access to healthcare for those who live in rural areas and those who are underserved in cities.  The middle and working class have been priced out by high insurance premiums and the exponential rise in out-of-pocket costs.  There has been a devastating loss of independent physicians (now accounting for only 30% of practicing physicians); and there has been a steady rise in the consolidation of corporate hospital systems and medical insurance companies. Each change has caused a decrease in choice with a resultant rise in cost leading to the all too familiar ‘too big to fail’ phenomenon.

The removal of the mandate allows those who cannot afford to purchase a product or those who have purchased a product that they don’t need or want to be free to find healthcare coverage that will work for them. The best part about the law is a change in a direction that respects the individual. If you like the ACA you can keep it, but if you don’t like it you will no longer be penalized. This one change will allow consumer driven healthcare to thrive and encourage the market to create products that will benefit the patient. [more...]
