Will Bush and Clinton’s New Strategies Work?
Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton were both foregone conclusions in their respective races for Republican and Democratic presidential nominations in the minds of the experts. Yet both have dropped dramatically in the major polls in recent weeks. Bush currently trails Donald Trump and Ben Carson, while Hillary is fighting back the unexpected popularity of Bernie Sanders and the potential entrance of VP Joe Biden into the race. What's next? Now both Bush and Clinton hope to shake off their opponents' respective surges with "new" strategies. What are these "new" strategies? More importantly, do these strategies have a chance of working?

Tom Brady Wins in the Legal Arena
By James Hirsen
Tom Brady is famous for his wins, especially in the final minutes of a professional football game. Most recently, though, the New England Patriots' star quarterback achieved an amazing last-minute victory in a brand new venue - a federal courtroom. Fans of the team are celebrating a legal determination, which is likely to result in Brady being able to suit up for the entire upcoming NFL season. Judge Richard M. Berman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York has ruled in favor of Brady and the players association, which had sought to have the court overturn his four-game suspension, a punishment that had been meted out for the quarterback's alleged role in what has been referred to in the press as "deflategate."

The Essence of Patriotism
As we approach the upcoming anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, we'll naturally see a rise in the number of flags outside of houses, along with a surge in people talking about national security, American exceptionalism, and all sorts of other reasons why our country is so great. At the same time, we'll also see a surge of anti-Americanism by those people who, no matter what the facts may be, constantly insist that this country has been the cause of all the world's problems since the dawn of time. Although the debates on these matters tend to revolve around all sorts of various perspectives, they always seem to be centered around a concept known as "patriotism." That being the case, it would make sense to take a moment to ask ourselves exactly what patriotism is, and what it really means. [more...]
Obama's Idea of Free Trade
The administration's inability to negotiate results in a devastatingly dangerous 'trade deal.' Leaked Trans Pacific Trade Agreement, (TPP), documents prove once again that the Obama Administration has already demonstrated that it can't negotiate its way out of a wet paper bag. Desperate for some sort of legacy, the Obama Administration has been hastily trying to wrap up negotiations that would establish the largest trade agreement in world history. But what he has 'negotiated' so far is devastating to American sovereignty and safety. Strong America has discovered a number of serious problems with the way Obama has 'negotiated' the Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement, (a/k/a TPP). Using one state as an example, we have discovered three disastrous things the Obama Administration is trying to slide into TPP... [more...]
How to Keep China from Harming Your Stock Market Performance
By Crista Huff
The major U.S. stock market indices - the S&P 500, the Dow and the NASDAQ - each fell almost exactly 14% from recent summertime highs to August lows, culminating in a rapid spike downward on August 21st, 24th, and 25th. Each index promptly rebounded, then stabilized in a classic double-bounce chart pattern. It's important to understand several things about this stock market correction... [more...]
High School Reading?
By Joe Messina
Just a reminder, folks… never stop looking over your child's schoolwork. Talk to them about what they’re reading and talking about in class. And here's just one more reason why it's so important. Del Campo High School students are reading about the fictional Utopian city Omelas, where orgies abound, nude sex slaves roam the streets, and special drugs heighten the depravity with no side effects. Stay vigilant, people. Protect your children's innocence. They grow up fast enough without the school exposing them unnecessarily to drivel like this. [more...]
