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?
By James Hirsen
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?
By Lowell Ponte
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...]
