Why They Hate Trump
By Karen Kataline

Among the political classes, the opposition to Trump began well before his inauguration by “trumping up” hatred for him regardless of any facts.  They have actually been willing to frame and defame him with the ultimate goal of removing him from office by any means necessary, including fraud. Are we to believe that all of this is because their delicate sensibilities have been offended by Trump’s style, civility, or the lack thereof? They don’t hate Trump.  They hate what he stands for. It’s hard to get your brain around but if that’s true, it’s the biggest crisis of all. [more...]

Why Economic Forecasts of the Effects of Trade Action Are Consistently Wrong
By Jeff Ferry

For more than a quarter century, every major action the U.S. government has taken on trade policy has been accompanied by economic forecasts of their impact on the U.S. economy. And in every case, that forecast has been wrong. Sometimes the actual result has been in the opposite direction from that predicted in the forecast.  These forecasts, based on economic models, are influential. Indeed, U.S. trade law requires that an economic forecast be carried out by the International Trade Commission (ITC) for every free trade agreement the executive branch proposes to Congress. There are good reasons these forecasts are habitually wrong and they go deeper than a simple bias towards free trade on the part of the economists or civil servants. [more...]

Will 'Turncoat' Joe Biden Save His Soul
By Lowell Ponte

Last week Joe Biden declared his firm support for the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of taxpayer money to pay for abortions. The next day Biden flip-flopped, saying he would join other left-liberal presidential candidates in promising to ban the Hyde Amendment. Yes, he has shown himself to be a modern Democrat - a politician defined not by his principles, but by his willingness to instantly do whatever the leftist mob demands. Biden has a strong pro-abortion record in politics. He even voted to let your 14-year-old pregnant daughter get a secret abortion without notifying you or getting your approval. But Joe Biden might save his soul - if he uses this opportunity to tell voters not to support the Democratic Party until the leftist demons who have hijacked it are exorcised. [more...]

The Clintons Partner Up with Hollywood
By James Hirsen

Hillary may have finally found the hobby that she had been looking for: Shaking down Hollywood execs in order to finance female-centric projects. Because Hollywood decision makers abandoned business principles a long time ago, she is likely to be able to obtain financing for some agenda-laden products that few, if any, will want to see. As an added benefit from all of this, we are able to get a sneak preview of what Joe Biden will be able to do with himself after he loses. [more...]

Target Stock vs. Walmart Stock - Which is the Better Buy?
By Crista Huff

May was a poor month for U.S. stocks. While most retail stocks suffered greatly, Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) exhibited bullish price charts. I’m not adding either Target stock or Walmart stock to my Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor portfolio just yet, because their fundamentals are not strong enough. However, these are the go-to stocks for institutional investors who want to assess the discount store landscape in search of potential portfolio stocks. Let’s review their outlooks in this breakdown of Target stock vs. Walmart stock. [more...]
