    Dozens of college-age men dead from ‘accidental’ drownings—but a team of retired detectives say the boys were drugged and killed by a shadowy gang with a sinister symbol. -- On the evening of Dec. 15, 2016, Dakota James called his friend Shelley in a panic. He was cold, disoriented, and scared out of his mind, wandering the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, trying to find someone—anyone—who would help him. “I don’t know where I am,” he told her, sobbing. “I’m so cold. Please help me. I’m lost.” Shelley didn’t hesitate. “I’m thinking, ‘Did he get mugged? Did he get beat up?...

    London (CNN Business) America's push for oil and gas supremacy could lead to a "climate catastrophe," a new report has warned. The report by Oil Change International said that the United States is set to "unleash the world's largest burst" of carbon emissions from new oil and gas development if it goes ahead with its plans to expand drilling. "At precisely the time in which the world must begin rapidly decarbonizing to avoid runaway climate disaster, the United States is moving further and faster than any other country to expand oil and gas extraction," the report said.

    Technology executives are telling Jim Cramer off camera that they support the Trump administration's hawkish approach to trade with China, the CNBC host says. The "Mad Money" host lists the pro-trade-war arguments he's hearing. "If we're ever going to do anything about China, this is the perfect time," he says. -- Technology executives are telling CNBC's Jim Cramer that they're willing to endure short-term pain from the U.S.-China trade war in favor of the long-term payoff.

    May I ask you (America) this most serious personal question? Do you possess the perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS needed to enter into the holy perfect presence of Almighty God? That is exactly what Almighty God has provided in the Person of Jesus Christ for ALL those of Adam’s fallen race who place their trust in Him (Rom. 3:23; 6:23; 10:2-4; 2 Cor. 5:21). These turbulent and troubling days are only going to get worse (2 Tim.3:1-7, 4:1-4). There is nothing we can do to stop what is transpiring and radically taking place in our nation and in this world.

    A bomb attack claimed by Daesh killed two US troops and two civilians working for the US military in northern Syria on Wednesday, weeks after President Donald Trump said the group had been defeated there and that he would pull out all American forces, Reuters reports. The attack appeared to be the deadliest on US forces in Syria since they deployed on the ground there in 2015. The town is controlled by a militia allied to US-backed Kurdish forces. The US military confirmed four Americans were killed and said three US troops were wounded in the explosion. The Syrian Observatory...

    American officials said during their discussions they relayed Trump's commitment to addressing trade deficit concerns and resolving structural issues affecting trade between the two countries. (please see the full article, at the link) I really don't see what Trump is talking about, but I do not have access to our trade delegation either. Maybe he is seeing something different. What I am seeing, is we just set the worst trade deficit in all recorded history, with China. The worst ever. Worst. Between any two countries. Ever. It is not improving. It is getting worse. I am all for Trump, but...

    Almost indiscernible in the endless tumult about President Donald Trump is the objective return of American might, right on our doorstep. A casual sampler of the Canadian, and even the American, media, might think that the United States was so far along in its decline that the entire process of government and normal public discourse had broken down in that country, and that the much-discussed process of national decline was accelerating in a climate of virtual chaos. In fact, the economy of the United States is astoundingly strong: full employment, an expanding work force, negligible inflation and about three per...

    AP ^ | Today | Joe Mcdonald
    (BEIJING) — An official Chinese newspaper warned Washington not to demand too much from Beijing as talks on ending their tariff war entered a second day Tuesday with no word on possible progress. The Trump administration is dealing with an increasingly strong China that has its own pressing needs, said the Global Times, which is published by the ruling Communist Party. It said Washington “cannot push China too far” and must avoid a situation that “spins out of control.” Negotiators began talks Monday on a fight over Beijing’s technology development tactics that companies worry might hobble global economic growth, but...

    American Tax Reform ^ | 1/7/2019 | Alex Hendrie
    House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) has announced that the forthcoming budget blueprint will call for a 33 percent corporate income tax rate by hiking the rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. This would make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business and make the U.S. statutory rate higher than many developed competitors. State corporate taxes average 6 percent across the U.S, so this planned tax hike would give the U.S. an average top corporate rate of 34 percent. The current combined corporate rate across the 36 member Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) is currently...
