G7 Leaders Say ‘Boo!’ to China... China Yawns
By Crista Huff
Leaders at last week’s G7 summit in Japan issued a communique expressing the need for a solution to the excess capacity problem in the global steel industry, hinting at possible litigation at the World Trade Organization. Three of the G7 countries in attendance - the U.S., Canada, and Japan - are partners in the not-yet-ratified Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. Clearly, these countries’ leaders realize that they need to appear willing to resolve international trade problems in order to shore up waning U.S. support for the TPP. Thus, the milquetoast communique. [more...]

China Pushes Vietnam into U.S. Arms
China seems to be in the process of learning what America already knows - being a superpower is much harder than it looks. The U.S. rescinding its arms embargo on Vietnam and the two nations discussing closer naval cooperation are just the latest signs of the closer alliances that are developing in the Pacific as a result of China’s territorial actions. While the discussion of the South China Sea generally focuses on how far China will go and what the U.S. will do about it, the more significant and lasting impact might be the exact opposite of what China wants - to further entrench the U.S. in Pacific affairs. In other words, in the case of China’s territorial ambitions, this might be a case of “be careful what you wish for...” [more...]
Mainstream Media Ending Now?
In my latest book, Great News for America, I predicted the “End of the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) Influence (as we know it) in Presidential Elections.” This is Prediction #9 of ten predictions that I made that I said would happen before, during or after the historic and critical 2016 presidential election. All ten of those predictions appear to be in the process of coming true. In past presidential elections, the MSM consisting of the major TV networks, the major big city newspapers, and the major news magazines were widely trusted by the electorate. The MSM was listened to by the voters and often led the voters. However, with increasing bias in recent years, the MSM has lost considerable credibility. [Go here for a complete analysis...]

Donald Trump, at the moment, appears to be a man of destiny. From his insulting former prisoner of war and U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), to belittling New Mexico’s Latina Republican Governor Susana Martinez, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate has done a hundred things that pundits said would destroy a lesser candidate. Trump’s invincibility seems to come from being an equal opportunity offender - a bold and independent leader who will attack the distrusted and despised ruling elites of both major political parties. He appears willing and able to shake the old order down, yet Trump exhibits a chameleon-like changeability about what he will do then. On the Democratic side, the frontrunner former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has seen her poll numbers for honesty and trustworthiness plummet down into the 30 percent range, a fall that few candidates in any party could survive.

Bad PR Causes Johnny Depp to Tank at the Box Office
By James Hirsen
Johnny Depp has had a week no one would envy. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star has had to deal with the passing of his mother, the end of his marriage, allegations of physical abuse, and now a bomb at the box office. Amber Heard, Depp’s wife of the past fifteen months, just filed for divorce in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences as grounds to end the marriage. Legal papers were filed three days after the death of Depp’s mother. [more...]
