Trump on Gold
By Lowell Ponte

Donald Trump has shown a special fondness for gold. “In some ways, I like the gold standard,” Trump told WMUR television in New Hampshire in 2015. “There's something very nice about the gold standard - something solid. We used to have a very solid country based on a gold standard,” Trump continued. “We don't have that anymore.” Returning to gold-backed money “would be very hard to do at this point,” said Trump, “in part because we don't have the gold. Other places have the gold.” But, unlike those he calls “all talk, no action” politicians, Trump has put his money where his mouth is by making gold a large part of his everyday life. Trump has even taken gold bullion as payment instead of dollars for a renter in one of his Manhattan buildings. [more...]

Is Paul Ryan Running for the Republican Presidential Nomination?
By Dr. Gerard Lameiro

While Trump and Cruz are battling it out for delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July, Paul Ryan might be setting the stage for a strong run at the presidential nomination on the second ballot at the convention... or even the third ballot.  Is this thought just a wild speculation in April, or is there enough evidence at this point to definitely conclude Paul Ryan is truly running for president?  Let’s talk about it now.

Cable Companies Benefit from Unpredictable Primaries
By James Hirsen

Cable news shows have been strategically placing digital countdown clocks in the corner of the television screen to let audiences know the exact time of an upcoming primary contest, debate, or town hall meeting. The countdown clocks are being displayed by cable news channels for a very specific reason. It makes good business sense. The unprecedented nature of the primary election season has contributed to sizable increases in revenues for the cable TV news outlets. [more...]

VC Rates Highest Since 2000 - What This Means for Tech Startups
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

The rapid rise of tech start-ups is both fueling, and fueled by, the new wave of venture capital funding hitting Silicon Valley. VC firms are seeing their highest rates since 2000, pulling over $13 billion this year. The last time VC saw this kind of fundraising, the dot-com bubble burst spectacularly. Now, we may be seeing a similar kind of bubble. According to The Wall Street Journal, there are 146 privately held, VC fueled tech startups valued over one billion dollars. Investors continue to flock to these startups thanks to the high return on investment. [more...]

The Lyin’ Media
By Wayne Allyn Root

The media, pollsters and establishment politicians of both parties claim Trump would be the most unpopular presidential nominee in history. They claim women don’t like him, young people don’t like him, black people don’t like him, Hispanics don’t like him. The media and their handpicked “experts” recommend the GOP should pick "anyone but Trump.” But is this narrative true? If he’s so unpopular, why is he leading by a landslide for the GOP presidential nomination?  [more...]

Long-Simmering Anger About Trade is Boiling Over for Voters
By Michael Stumo, CEO of Coalition for a Prosperous America

The dwindling number of economists who unquestioningly support more trade agreements assume untrue facts to support their belief. Trade agreements produce more gains than losses under rare circumstances. First, there must be full employment so workers losing jobs gain equivalent jobs next week. Second, there must be no currency manipulation that distorts the relative price of imports to domestic goods and services. Third, trade must remain balanced so import job losses are offset by export job gains. [more...]

Will Wisconsin Alter the Trajectory of the Presidential Race?
By John LeBoutillier

Will Wisconsin be the turning point for both parties’ presidential races? Has Trump’s week on the defensive changed the dynamics of the GOP race? Is he still the likely Republican nominee – or are we headed for a truly “open” GOP convention? Is Bernie now on fire again – and is Hillary feeling the heat? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening – at 7:30pm ET. [more...]
