China Treats U.S. Like a Colony... Luckily Trump is Fighting Back
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

The president understated his case. Yes, we have a big global trade deficit, it has cost millions of jobs, and China’s share is by far the largest with any country. Yes, China’s brazen technology theft is jaw-dropping. But the bigger story may be that we are already a natural resource colony for China as well as a quaint tourist destination. A short economic history of imperialism is in order. [more...]

How to Decide Whether to Self-Publish Your Book or Not

At least once a week, some highly motivated CEO, C-suite executive, coach, or entrepreneur calls me up and asks, "Should I self-publish my business book?" Unfortunately, there's no one right answer to that question. To begin with, it's critical to understand the current landscape of publishing options. In today's publishing world, there are three main options to get your book from brain to bookshelf: Traditional, Self-publishing, and Hybrid publishing. [more...]

From Steele to Mueller, the Cost of Overturning the 2016 Election

The raids of Michael Cohen’s hotel room, home and office are just this week’s Watergate. Political operatives have now seized privileged communications between the President of the United States and his lawyer. Despite fairytales about a clean process, these communications will be harvested by the counterparts of Peter Strzok, who unlike him are still on the case at the FBI; some of it will appear in the Washington Post and the New York Times, and some will be passed along to other political allies. That’s what happened at every juncture of Watergate 2.0. And it only follows that it will happen again. [more...]

Free Speech and Censorship

In these contentious times, various forms of censorship or discouragement of free speech are continually being fiercely debated. National Review Online writer Kevin Williamson, hired by the Atlantic for his scorched-earth attacks on Donald Trump, was fired after one column because of his scorched-earth attacks on women who’ve had abortions. Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham’s show has been boycotted by nearly 20 corporate advertisers because of her tweet mildly tweaking David Hogg about his failure to get into some universities. Hogg, of course, is the 17-year-old survivor of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school who has become a petulant catspaw for the anti-gun lobby. Meanwhile, revelations of private data being sold or left vulnerable by Facebook, and the continuing censorship of political views by that platform along with YouTube and Google, have heated up calls for subjecting social media to government regulations. [more...]

Mark Zuckerberg Exposed

While Mark Zuckerberg takes full responsibility for the mistakes he made, stating, “It was my mistake and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here. It’s clear now that we didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy,” there is absolutely no excuse as the executive of this company for letting this type of breach to happen. When it comes to doing business with anybody, you can NEVER take somebody at their word; take action and cover all of your bases to prevent harm from being done in the first place. [more...]
