A New Twist On ISDS Within the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade Agreement
By Crista Huff

There’s a new twist on the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) within the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, and it has state legislators and treasurers incensed all across America. Under the new lawsuit provisions within the TPP, foreign companies and state-owned enterprises can sue U.S. states and municipalities (cities, counties, towns, ports, etc.) where they are doing business. If a foreign company doesn’t want to abide by state or local regulations, your hometown could be forced to send attorneys to global court! Our states and municipalities do not have the manpower, let alone the expertise, to argue cases in a global court. What’s more, all ISDS rulings change or add to the TPP, because it’s a living agreement. [more...]

Yahoo Selling Itself to Highest Bidder
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Yahoo is up for sale, and it probably won’t be a great deal for anyone. Yahoo got hit hard during the tech crash 15 years ago; most companies either folded or recovered, Yahoo decided to do neither. For months now, talk of a Yahoo sale has bounced around Wall Street. Yahoo considered spinning off its stake in Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce behemoth, and leaving its core tech company. Now, Yahoo officially announced it’s exploring the sale of its business. Stock prices jumped 3% on the announcement after news of a potential takeover added to the drama. Among Yahoo’s potential suitors is Time Inc. which recently purchased the thoroughly irrelevant Web site Myspace, so it seems the media firm may want to further its acquisition of troubled tech companies.

The Hillary Protection Program
By Barry Farber

Let’s go back a few Saturdays to the Clinton-Sanders debate in Milwaukee - the PBS debate featuring moderators Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill. At that time, the fluffy little clouds forming around Hillary had coalesced into an ominous thunderhead. Hillary had lied, and lied big-time, and there was no longer any plausible defense. Her explanation, that her e-mail account in question was used only for wedding plans and new yoga positions, had suffered the fate of a cobweb under a blowtorch. The question remaining was, “Would the FBI pass along a criminal referral to the Justice Department, and, if so, would Obama permit the law to take its course?” That, if you’ve never studied law or journalism, is a very big story. I couldn’t believe what I heard, or, more accurately, what I failed to hear. Clinton and Sanders did all the same-old-same-old issues of Wall Street, health care, income inequality, foreign policy etc., but not one word was uttered about Hillary’s legal problems! The panelists didn’t mention it. The candidates didn’t mention it. The audience didn’t mention it. Nobody said a word about it. What hangs there as potentially the biggest political takedown since Watergate was a non-story. [more...]

Time for Trump to Name a GOP Dream Team
By Wayne Allyn Root

After his overwhelming victories in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, Donald Trump now has a clear path to the GOP Presidential nomination. It's time to think big and unite the GOP. Here’s my advice for Trump moving forward: It’s time for Donald Trump to act like Reagan, become presidential and unite the GOP. It’s time to claim victory and start announcing the amazing “dream team” that this one-of-a-kind CEO will assemble to run the country and save the economy. It’s time to praise the Republicans that Trump has been running against and bring all their supporters into the Trump tent. It’s time to show the country and the world how a billionaire CEO assembles a dream team. [more...]

Korea FTA Spurred Massive Titanium Imports
By Michael Stumo

The titanium industry is an example of how trade agreements make the U.S. lose and not win. The Korea-U.S. free trade agreement (KORUS) was approved in 2011 and implemented in 2012. Korea had no titanium industry before the KORUS deal, but created one to export to the U.S. because of the deal. Allegheny Technologies reports, "U.S. imports of titanium mill products from Korea jumped from 36 short tons in 2013 to 318 tons by 2015." This was a part of why our trade performance with Korea drastically worsened thereafter.

John Kerry Seeks Hollywood Advice on How to Fight ISIS
By James Hirsen

Secretary of State John Kerry recently traveled to Hollywood to meet with a dozen industry executives to seek advice on how to win the battle against Isis. Kerry sat down with a virtual who’s who of the entertainment business. The one and a half-hour meeting, which took place at Universal Studios, was organized by Shell, who in addition to being a Universal executive is also the Chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a body of which Kerry is a member. The meeting with some of Hollywood’s top power players was reportedly at the behest of Kerry. After the gathering, Kerry made the following revelation via his Twitter account: “Great convo w studio execs in LA. Good to hear their perspectives & ideas of how to counter #Daesh [Arabic acronym for ISIS] narrative.” [more...]

The Christians and Trump
By Joe Messina

Hey, Christians!  It’s a little late to start complaining about Donald Trump. I’m watching all the social media from conservative Christian Republicans asking Christians all over to get on their knees and pray Trump doesn’t win. I’m not a Trump supporter; I haven’t made up my mind yet... not even close. But I’m not going to drop to my knees and beg God to knock Trump out of the race. I don’t know what the Master Plan is. Do you? God may have one heck of a “gotcha” at the end of all this. So, for you Christians who are imagining a Trump presidency raining down “fire and brimstone” like what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah, knock it off! [more...]

Will Black Voters Leave Hillary’s Plantation?
By Daniel Greenfield

In her desperate scramble to the top, every Hillary victory is accompanied by a setback. The corrupt Democratic machine that has kept her going this far eked out a victory in Nevada but took down her minority firewall. In earlier primaries, Hillary had lost women and young voters. In Nevada, she lost Latinos. The last and only element of the Obama coalition that she has retained are black voters, which helped Hillary in Nevada. While Latinos defected to Sandernistan, black voters remained loyally behind on Hillary's happy plantation. If the black voters, primarily women who powered the Obama campaign, wave goodbye to life on the Clinton Tara, then Hillary's path to the White House ends with Sanders' Socialist march to the Potomac. [more...]

What Happened to Secure Hillary’s Victory in Nevada?
By Wayne Allyn Root

I spent the weekend listening to national media commentators (so called “experts”) gloat over the two big winners of the weekend: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But there’s one little problem with that scenario: only one candidate actually won big. Donald Trump spent almost nothing to score a resounding double-digit victory in South Carolina, even while his opponent Marco Rubio spent 12 times more ($12 million) and scored the endorsement of the two most popular Republican politicians in the state (Gov. Nikki Haley and U.S. Sen. Tim Scott). Now that’s a big victory. But when it comes to Hillary, the national media is either ignorant, stupid, lazy, delusional, or purposely lying. Hillary’s razor-thin Nevada victory wasn’t a “decisive victory.” It was an embarrassment that required spending millions of dollars to garner a pathetic 6,316 votes in an anemic turnout. [more...]

Donald Trump Needs to Brand Himself as the Term Limits President

By Wayne Allyn Root

What we all saw on display at the past few GOP Presidential Debates was the problem with America - a bunch of career politicians on the stage... and an audience stacked against Trump filled with fat-cat donors, lobbyists and D.C. lawyers. They hate Trump because they can’t bribe him. They clearly own all the other candidates lock, stock and barrel. Those boos you hear directed at Trump are proof positive he’s the right man to clean up the swamp in Washington, D.C. This stranglehold by special interests rooting for crony capitalism and bigger government is clearly what has ruined our country. Donald Trump is an outsider; he is the anti-politician - politically incorrect, willing to tell the raw truth - even if it offends. That’s why the perfect theme for Trump is to brand himself as “THE TERM LIMITS PRESIDENT.” [more...]

CPA Commentary: How to Think About the New Peterson Institute Report on the TPP
By Michael Stumo

The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) released a report that trumpets embarrassingly small gains from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. The PIIE Study admits that “the TPP is not likely to affect overall employment in the United States.” The study projects that by 2020 U.S. incomes will rise a mere 0.1% of GDP. This means that 99.9% of growth will happen without regard to the TPP. Japan is estimated to gain five times more income (in relation to GDP) than the U.S., Vietnam 16 times more, and Malaysia 15 times more.

Rabid Hypocrisy and Hate for Scalia from the Left
By Joe Messina

Justice Antonin Scalia died last weekend of natural causes. Justice Scalia, according to his colleagues on both sides of the aisle, was a loved and respected man, even by those who disagreed with him 100% of the time. But what happened to those on the Left who always scream about civility, about not spewing hate, about everyone deserving respect? They busted a gut and couldn’t contain themselves. Their rabid rhetoric and hate speech is all over the Internet. They hate Scalia because of his stance on Supreme Court decisions with which they didn’t agree... all the while disregarding the many decisions he made that protected and helped millions. [more...]

Here’s How “Flat Broke” Bill Clinton Buys Stuff
By Daniel Greenfield

During the last election, Obama trotted out Bill Clinton to talk up his economic programs. If Hillary is the nominee, expect Bill Clinton to be out there pretending to be able to relate to ordinary people. But here’s the reality that Bill Clinton lives in. Clinton was notoriously blasé about financial matters. “He doesn’t care about money,” the Clinton friend told me. “He doesn’t even have a credit card. When he wants to get something he says, ‘Wow, I love that,’ and whoever he’s with says, ‘Here it is!’” That's the way royalty and a limited class of celebrities function. The piece focused on the role that Clinton's body man, a pal of Huma Abedin, played in picking through his political ties for cash. It wouldn't surprise me if a whole lot of the Clinton loot ended up in the pockets of their associates. [more...]

America the Humiliated
By Barry Farber

It’s the present secretary of state who drives me to the Ranting Wall right now. Situation: Two American naval vessels that can outrun anything else afloat get pulled over to the side of the watery road in the Persian Gulf by an Iranian Revolutionary Guard vessel. Our sailors get an order from we-know-not-where-or-whom to “stand down!” That means don’t do anything to antagonize an enemy. Our American “prisoners” are treated to systematic humiliation at the time of apprehension, but the “best” is yet to come. Secretary of State Kerry at that time thanks the Iranians for “taking such good care” of our sailors and “allowing them to return to their travels in a prompt and professional manner.” Comedian Bob Hope won everlasting fame with a number called “Thanks for the Memories.” Kerry and his boss, Barack Obama, are winning everlasting fame now with a number called “Thanks for the Humiliation”!

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of the U.S. Economy
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

The U.S. economy is currently floating in limbo. Consumer data suggests economic recovery, while markets indicate greater hesitancy in U.S. monetary policy and the global economy. On the good side of things, we have consumers. Americans kicked off 2016 with a bang, showing increases in retail sales across the board. Online sales, clothing and automobiles were all up. Auto manufacturers have dirt cheap gas to thank for the increase in sales. Consumers are no longer being discouraged by expensive gas. Household purchases, which make up the bulk of consumer spending, further bolstered retail numbers. Despite setbacks in the oil industry, U.S. employers added 151,000 jobs in January – another step in the right direction for a strong economy. But what’s the bad news? [more...]

Scalia’s Passing, Politics and the Unions
By Dave Bego

The unfortunate and untimely passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has Big Labor bosses and their liberal political allies cheering. Scalia would have been the decisive vote in a major Supreme Court decision affecting labor unions scheduled for this June. Justice Scalia’s influence would have impacted big labor and the union bosses, as he most likely would have voted in favor of union members in the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. The case involves a California teacher who claims her First Amendment rights have been violated by having to pay union dues, even though she isn’t a member of the union. [more...]

Significant Problems with the TPP
By Crista Huff

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) requires each participating country to give up a large degree of sovereignty, not unlike what took place when European countries joined the European Union. It becomes apparent that this trade agreement was written by and for people who have more of a globalist, “one world order” agenda. I cannot fathom how any U.S. patriot would ever vote “yes” on the TPP. The TPP is a “living agreement.” Its content can and will be altered by global courts and a global commission, forever. The U.S. does not have the legal power to say “no” to any decision made by those entities. The TPP is a “docking” agreement. Additional countries may dock onto (i.e. “join”) the TPP, after it’s ratified, without Congress’ consent. Sen. Ted Cruz specifically voted against requiring Congress’ consent! Only a simple majority vote of member countries is needed, for a country to join the TPP. China has been encouraged to join the TPP, most notably by Hillary Clinton. John Kerry welcomed both Communist China and Russia to join the TPP. Docking countries could include enemies of the U.S.; even countries with which we are at war. [more...]

SC - An Important Battleground State
By Dr. Gerard Lameiro

Why is the SC primary so contentious? The stakes are high.  As I discuss in my new book, Great News for America, the 2016 election is an historic and critical presidential election.  Historic means that the voter turnout will be very high. Critical means that we can expect both political parties to face realignments that are major. Saturday’s debate was contentious and filled with animosity precisely because the stakes are so high.  The end of the Republican Party as we have known it is coming soon.  The fight is on for the heart, soul and mind of the newly constituted party that will take its place.  We have seen the Republican presidential candidate pool drop from 17 individuals to now just 6.  The candidates are literally fighting for their survival and the future of the Republican Party and what it will become.

Obama Holds Secret Meeting with Hollywood Donors
By James Hirsen

Following a number of recent Left Coast fundraising stops, President Obama got down to business at a late night dinner meeting with some key members of the Hollywood elite. Not only was the get-together with DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, chairman of Walt Disney Studios Alan Horn, and A-list actor Will Smith not on Obama’s public schedule, it was also intentionally kept from the press. The White House failed to make mention of the meeting to reporters who were traveling with the president as he made his way to fundraising events and a television studio in Los Angeles. [more...]

The Link Between Falling Markets, Falling Political Establishments and Rising Gold
By Lowell Ponte

We may be witnessing a revolution to restore integrity to both our money and our politics. Stock prices since the start of 2016 have been plummeting, and gold is soaring, as people lose faith in the powers that conjured a fake prosperity based on paper money, politicized markets and zero interest rates. Voters in the U.S. are rejecting candidates of the old ruling elites in both major political parties. Candidates who promise to overthrow these elites, such as businessman Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, are winning big. [more...]

Nevada Predictions
By Wayne Allyn Root

Here is my prediction for the Nevada caucus: Trump wins by double digits. Nevada is the perfect secular conservative & Libertarian "live & let live" state for Trump. Up until now, there have been few if any polls taken in Nevada. Theory was until Iowa and NH were over, it didn't matter. Opinions were too fluid. Now opinions are formed. I just saw the latest poll for Nevada... backs up everything my gut has been saying: Trump is up 43 to 15... landslide. [more...]

Trump is Still Trumping the Competition
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Following a decisive victory in New Hampshire, Donald Trump is poised for an easy win in South Carolina. In the Granite State, Trump won every single demographic: the wealthy, the working class, women, men, those with college and graduate school education, those without, etc. Now, according to Real Clear Politics’ composite polls for South Carolina, Trump currently carries a 20% lead over Ted Cruz. Barring scandal or an unprecedented come-back story, the GOP race is among Rubio, Cruz, and Trump, with The Donald still the unrelenting leader. [more...]

Trump Presidency Clincher

By Wayne Allyn Root

There is only one person at this moment standing in the way of Donald Trump: Hillary Clinton. If Sanders is the nominee, Trump might very well become the first Republican president to win the black vote. Trump will win New York State. So don’t even worry about Bernie.

That leaves one target: Hillary. She is the only one standing in the way of “President Donald Trump” at this moment. Donald Trump understands “branding.” He branded Jeb Bush as “low energy”... Bush disappeared. He branded Ben Carson as “unhinged”... Ben disappeared. He branded Ted Cruz as "unlikeable," pointing out that Cruz is hated by every fellow Senator. Ted fell off the radar in New Hampshire.

Donald’s amazing talent allows him to find his opponents’ big weakness and pound it home publicly in the media until it’s imbedded in everyone’s subconscious. First, the public is shocked at the comment; then they laugh at the comment. Then they start thinking about it. Then they can’t get it out of their minds. And then his opponent is roadkill.

Now it’s time for Donald to use that remarkable talent for branding... to destroy Hillary - NOW before she ever gains momentum. At this moment, she is at her weakest; the walls are closing in on Hillary. It's the perfect time to finish the job. Hit her now while she's wounded and she’ll never recover. It's game, set, match. [more...]

How Voters Assess a Candidate

By Karen Leland

It was a banner night for Bernie Sanders, who handily beat out Hillary Clinton to win the New Hampshire primary. Bernie was able to hit this home run because of his consistent personal brand and on-point message to millennials. But he was also able to get there, in large part, because it was only a two-horse race. Unlike the Republicans, who had quadruple the number of players.

Mr. Trump’s strategy of putting the other Republican candidates on the defensive, so they double down in an effort to protect their flanks, seems to be working. (At least it’s working to keep his colleagues in the race.) Although South Carolina is a different animal than New Hampshire, you have to question whether the Republican Party needs to get its act together, decide to be a team, and reduce the playing field enough to let a true favorite rise to the head of the pack.

Whether you are a candidate running for political office or a business pitching for patronage, you would do well to remember that people vote for you (in the ballot box and with dollars) based on the three critical criteria of your brand – personal, local and global. Your best ground game is to be a winner in all three. [more...]

GOP Establishment Needs Candidate to Beat Trump

By Michael Reagan

The Republican Party needs to pick a candidate to compete against Donald Trump in order to stop the projected winner of the New Hampshire presidential primary. I'm not surprised by the reaction; I'm more surprised by what happened in New Hampshire. Everybody's talking about these different lanes. There's really two lanes: there's a Trump lane and everyone else. Everyone else better find who's going to run that lane against Donald Trump if indeed they want to wrestle away the nomination of the Republican Party. [more...]

Politics and Unions
By Dave Bego

Though this past weekend’s debate was calmer than previous debates, it was apparent the ABC moderators were not only intent on pitting the candidates against each other, but also making experience a point of focus. In both instances they succeeded, as exchanges between Christie and Rubio, Cruz and Carson, and Trump and Bush were definitely heated, and clearly exposed the lack of experience of certain candidates. While ABC focused on the lack of political experience, it was apparent that the most important experience is the ability to handle one’s self under pressure and understand that business and the free market economy, not government, drives what makes America great!

Bernie Sanders Gets an SNL Boost
By James Hirsen

Bernie Sanders took a pause from campaigning this past weekend in order to travel to New York for what has become a mandatory stop in any presidential hopeful’s campaign - the all-important “Saturday Night Live” appearance. The Vermont senator and Democrat presidential candidate currently has his eye on what may turn out to be his first victory of the electoral season, a New Hampshire win over Hillary Clinton. “Seinfeld” co-creator and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David, who has portrayed Sanders several times on “SNL,” hosted the most recent show and even appeared alongside the real Sanders in a memorable segment. Sanders’ “SNL” appearance, coming on the heels of the New Hampshire primary, couldn’t be better for Bernie or potentially any more horrible for Hillary. [more...]

Trump Targets Cruz... Who’s Next?

By Michael Reagan

There are times when it’s very easy to believe Donald Trump lives in an alternate universe. And by that I don’t mean his running for president in the first place. I’m talking about garden variety campaign events where Trump either fails to remember what happened in the recent past or hopes Republican voters fail to remember. The latest instance is Trump’s “defense” of Ben Carson. Mark Levin points out that Trump is evidently positioning himself as Carson’s defender as he criticizes Ted Cruz’s campaign for a caucus night tweet in Iowa. [more...]

However, what millions of Wayne's political fans across the country might not realize is that Wayne first built his celebrity and name recognition as “The King of Vegas” and “America’s Oddsmaker.” Wayne started his TV career in 1989 as the Network Oddsmaker and NFL Analyst for Financial News Network (now known as CNBC), where he hosted 5 shows - including the network’s signature NFL pregame show with his co-host, the famous Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder. 

Wayne has predicted the winners of sports events for over 30 years for over 3 million clients (the most in the history of this industry). He created, hosted and executive produced his signature national television show, "Wayne Allyn Root's WinningEDGE" from 2000 through 2009. He created, executive produced and co-hosted the hit TV series "King of Vegas" on Spike TV. He is the author of sports books "Root on Risk: Betting to Win on Sports," "The Zen of Gambling," and "The King of Vegas' Guide to Gambling."

Because of his success as the most successful oddsmaker and sports handicapper ever, Wayne was awarded his own 180-pound granite star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars (in front of Paris Resort & Casino). Wayne is one of 75 legends in history with their own star on Las Vegas Blvd. - including Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Liberace, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin and Siegfried & Roy. 

Wayne’s sports handicapping career has been profiled by CNBC, Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, CNN/Money, Equities, Success, Entrepreneur, EMMY, Millionaire, The Robb Report and The Financial Times (among many others). Wayne now makes over 1,000 TV and radio appearances annually talking politics.

Wayne’s record picking winners is second to none. His lifetime Super Bowl record is 21-9, 70% winners (against the point spread). That's a 70% success rate over three decades. He has won 17 of the past 24 Super Bowls - 71% winners.

Wayne is available for interviews regarding Sunday's Super Bowl - the biggest sports and TV event of the year. Over $8 BILLION dollars will be wagered on this event.

Trump is No Reagan Republican

By Michael Reagan

Mr. Trump, I knew Ronald Reagan. And you’re no Ronald Reagan! Of course, I am stealing that line — with a twist. Donald Trump shouldn’t mind. He’s been stealing my dad for his own purposes. Trump frequently invokes Ronald Reagan’s name to defend his sudden 180-degree switch from being a lifelong, pro-Clinton Democrat to a Reagan Republican.
Both men did make a switch, but almost all the similarities between the two end there. Ronald Reagan’s odyssey from Hollywood liberal to conservative backer took place over almost two decades. Starting with his 1964 “Time for Choosing” speech that galvanized Americans for Barry Goldwater, dad began a 16-year effort of crisscrossing America to support conservative candidates for office. My dad also served eight years as California’s governor. When he ran for President, he had a proven conservative track record.

Donald Trump doesn’t have one. In fact, Trump still can’t explain his sudden change from being a liberal Democrat. When dad ran in 1980, Trump donated the maximum amount to Jimmy Carter. As the Wall Street Journal reported, Trump also donated to a PAC for Walter Mondale, who ran against dad in 1984. Trump has criticized some candidates for their indiscretions made during their childhood. But what can you say for a grown adult who supported both Carter and Mondale over Ronald Reagan? [more...]

New Hampshire Primary - Key Questions

By Dr. Gerard Lameiro

The New Hampshire primary is coming up only eight days after the Iowa caucuses.  The results in Iowa were surprising to many 2016 presidential election watchers.  Ted Cruz and his strong ground organization beat Donald Trump and won after numerous recent polls predicted Trump would be victorious. Also, Marco Rubio, whose numbers had been somewhat flat in recent Iowa polls, suddenly jumped up into third place, nearly beating Trump, and winning the same number of Republican National Convention delegates as Trump, namely 7 delegates.  Of particular importance, it was an historic Republican caucus turnout.  This foreshadows my prediction of an historic 2016 presidential election with a record high voter turnout in my new book, Great News for America. [Go here for a complete analysis...]

Hillary, Can You Feel the Bern?
By Karen Leland

With last night’s Iowa Caucus action, the personal brands of the candidates became front and center once again. As a personal branding consultant, I’ve been watching this election cycle closely. Last night was no exception. Winning isn’t always winning. Despite Clinton’s ultimate and minuscule victory over Sanders, who really won the night? The degree to which Sanders inspired millennials, who are disenchanted with politics as usual, to participate is in many ways a much more important and longer-term gain that could make the difference in the end. He’s obviously in it for the long term. When it comes to building a personal, business or CEO brand, it’s all about the long game.  [more...]

Enter Chinese New Year of the Monkey
By Lowell Ponte

On Monday, February 8, the ancient Chinese Lunar calendar, based on a 12-year cycle of different animal years, exits the Year of the Sheep or goat and enters the Year of the Monkey. Chinese astrologers warn that 2016 will be a year of competition and challenge, youthful energy and fun, curiosity and creativity, intelligence and trickery, like monkeys themselves. This Year of the Red Fire Monkey is auspicious for bold new enterprises, say Chinese soothsayers. Those who take daring entrepreneurial risks this year are more likely to succeed – and old political and business empires to fall. [more...]

Iowa Didn’t Hurt Trump... But it Destroyed Hillary
By Wayne Allyn Root

I can hear it now – every so-called “political expert” telling us how important this loss in Iowa is for Donald Trump. They’ll tell you it’s a big deal; it’s the end of Trump; it proves Trump will under-perform the polls in other states too; it proves he’s not invincible; the bubble has burst; Trump is wounded. This is all nonsense. As usual, the experts know nothing. As usual, they are clueless blowhards trying to sound like they know something the rest of us don’t. As usual, they have it all wrong.

Campaign Ads Go Negative in Iowa & New Hampshire
By James Hirsen

Negative attack ads are flooding the airwaves in Iowa and New Hampshire. Front runner Donald Trump, his chief rival Ted Cruz, climbing centrist Marco Rubio, and mainstream media favorite John Kasich are the targets of countless advertising buys that are crafted to direct attention toward the perceived shortcomings of each of the GOP presidential candidates. Florida Senator Rubio is being targeted in New Hampshire and in national ads by Right to Rise, a Jeb Bush-friendly super PAC. One political advertisement depicts Rubio as a perpetually twirling weathervane that changes positions on immigration with the fluctuating political winds. [more...]

Apple and Google Battle it out to be King of the Tech Mountain
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

For much of 2015, Wall Street speculated Apple may be the first company to reach a trillion-dollar market cap. Last February, Apple saw its market cap peak at $774 billion, a record setting number. Now, not even 12 months later, the company has shed $240 billion in value. How did this happen? Last week, Apple posted its fourth quarter earnings and, in the words of Forbes Magazine, got “creamed.” Across the board, Wall Street slammed Apple for subpar numbers. The already declining stock dropped another 5% after the report. Why are investors dropping Apple? Apple confirmed investors’ worst fear: stalled growth. Last quarter, Apple stopped growing, and in fact, CEO Tim Cook predicted a decline in future sales. Silicon Valley is filled with the skeletons of once strong companies that stopped growing and lost investors soon after. Wall Street worries Apple will join them. Remember when BlackBerry was the biggest name in the tech world? [more...]

Why the Left Can’t Understand Islam
By Daniel Greenfield

The left’s greatest intellectual error is its conviction that the world can be divided into a binary power struggle in which both sides agree on the nature of the struggle, but disagree on the outcome. For leftists of a certain generation, it was class. Marx began the Communist Manifesto by laying out a primal class struggle throughout human history. For Marxists, everything in the world could be broken down to a class struggle with the wealthy oppressors on one side and the oppressed on the other. It didn’t matter that this model didn’t fit a reality in which Communist leaders came from wealthy backgrounds and their opponents were just as likely to be poor peasants. To the left, everything is defined by the model. Reality is an inconvenience that is suppressed with gulags and firing squads. [more...]

Lying, Cheating and Stealing... an American Way of Life?
By Joe Messina

Over the years I have watched the American people and the legal system back down on truly criminal issues because we have too many people in jail. They say our judicial system is overloaded and can’t take anymore. So now we stop enforcing laws or shorten jail sentences? We basically give up? Are we afraid to call them out as bad actions? Has political correctness made it so wrong to call thugs, thugs; terrorists, terrorists; and so on? For example, General Petraeus was sentenced to two years parole and a $40,000 fine for giving classified material to his girlfriend and biographer. It pretty much ruined his career because he swore on his outgoing paperwork from the CIA that he had returned or destroyed all classified material. He obviously didn’t! (This may be a bad one.)
