Why Trump is the Best Choice to Bring GOOD Jobs to America
Donald Trump is an entrepreneur, a businessman who has created jobs - good jobs - for decades. He has helped people create businesses and has built buildings, golf courses, parks and more where before there was just dirt. Trump understands how to create jobs and how to increase the worth of our land. The other politicians do not. Most rely only on government spending to produce cheap jobs, little opportunities, and spread misery and dependence. People are tired of paying outrageous taxes in order to keep a bloated government afloat. The great President Ronald Reagan said: “Taxation is forced labor; and if it goes beyond reasonable bounds, it is a yoke of oppression.” [more...]
Could Puerto Rico Be the First Falling Domino of Financial Doomsday?
By Lowell Ponte
On Sunday May 1, America's Caribbean Island Puerto Rico defaulted on a debt payment of $422 million. This island that Spanish explorers named “rich port,” Puerto Rico, is roughly the size of Connecticut and is home to 3.5 million U.S. citizens. How has it run up a staggering total debt of more than $72 billion, more than any U.S. state except New York and California? Puerto Rico has been turned into a cash-short poor port by U.S. economic manipulation along with welfare and government pension politics. The U.S. government built Puerto Rico's current economy on exotic tax breaks, especially for drugs. At one point, nine of America's 12 biggest drug companies had major facilities in Puerto Rico.

Could China Push the U.S. into Recession?
It seems like every time the Chinese stock market takes a big drop, so does ours. When China reports particularly bad economic activity in a given month, hiring in the U.S. slows the next month. When the Chinese currency falls, analysts warn of the possible consequences of a currency war. It is not difficult to find news stories about all the capital that is fleeing China or predictions that China is on the verge of a financial crisis and/or economic collapse. With all the bad news coming out of China and the impact it seems to have on our economy, it is reasonable for Americans to wonder what exactly is happening with China’s economy and what impact is it likely to have on us. I will try to explain the basics to the non-experts who don’t have time to track the details but want to know how worried they should be. [more...]
D.C. - Entertainment Capital of the World
By James Hirsen
Ever since the Obamas moved into the White House, the image and ambiance of Washington, D.C. has been transformed. Apart from the policies put forth by the president that have altered the national landscape, the nation’s capital has slowly turned into Hollywood East. It is not merely that the press has treated the First Family as if they were A-list movie stars, or that the president and his wife have appeared on more entertainment television programs than all of their predecessors combined, it is the manner in which Washington, D.C. has taken on the attributes of the entertainment capital of the world.

Will Kasich Assure Trump’s Nomination?
While John Kasich is largely being ignored by the media, will he inadvertently assure Trump’s nomination? According to a Public Policy Polling survey released this week, 49% of voters in John Kasich’s state of Ohio think it’s time for him to exit the race. This is a big reversal from two months ago when 52% of Ohio voters thought he should stay in the race. Does it matter if Kasich stays in the race or not? If he continues to stay in the race until the July convention, what is the impact on the Republican presidential nomination? Does it favor Trump? Does it favor Cruz? Does it matter at all?
