  • Kiplinger Economic Outlook For All 50 States 2020

    Low jobless rates and rising incomes are helping to fatten state coffers across the U.S. Revenue from sales, personal and corporate taxes is on the rise --the best growth since before the Great Recession. States can expect healthy tax revenues for at least the next several quarters as low unemployment continues, incomes slowly rise, inflation increases modestly and higher energy prices generate more income for states with severance taxes. But the outlook for individual states is varied, with several regions facing big challenges. The trade war with China is battering the agriculture industry in the Midwest and the prairie states...

    FULL TITLE: For Ft. Worth Officer, Aaron Dean Arrested & Charged With Murder of A Black Woman Who He Shot While She Played Video Games! (Video) The Fort Worth, Texas, police officer who fatally shot a woman while she was babysitting her nephew over the weekend has been charged with murder. Aaron Dean was booked into the Tarrant County Correction Center and later released on $200,000 bond, according to jail officials. Fort Worth Police Sgt. Chris Daniels acknowledged the outrage that the killing of Atatiana Jefferson, 28, had sparked. “To the citizens and residents of our city, we feel and...

    VIDEO Is Joe Biden in even worse political shape than most people imagine? If so, then it is likely the Iowa caucuses will be a disaster for him, perhaps to the extent of coming in at fifth place AGAIN in 2020 just as he did in 2008. This video explains the possible outcome of the first five spots and who will fill them at the upcoming Iowa caucuses.

    The boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, says mean Twitter messages made him feel like a woman, bringing to mind (for me, anyway) Shania Twain. But let’s set the stage: President Trump planned a major rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Frey publicly stated that he would like to bar the president from entering his city, but sadly lacks the power to do so–that pesky Constitution again! He then came up with a clever way to achieve his goal of blocking Trump’s appearance–he sent the Target Center’s management a $530,000 bill for “security.” That didn’t work, and Trump...

    There have long been secret police. The Gestapo, the KGB and the Stasi are classic examples. To that we may now add the House democrats. For three years Adam Schiff has claimed to have secret evidence of Trump colluding with Russia. Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff (D-CA) says Democrats will not only continue with the Russia investigation but they found evidence of collusion. Schiff also said they have new documents from an important witness.Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released their own 98-page report, which charged that the Republican document “reflects a lack of seriousness...

    George W. BushÂ’s presidency is an interesting period to reflect back on. By a certain sect of Republicans, Bush is held up as a good man that did the best he could in a difficult time. ThereÂ’s some truth to that characterization in so far as the challenges after 9/11 were real. As time has passed though, Republicans at large have taken a more critical eye at his myriad of missteps, not just on foreign policy (of which the ramifications we are still suffering today), but also in his inability to accomplish much of anything for the conservative cause in...

    Gray squirrels are Excellent Eating – some say even better than Venison. Hunting tree squirrels in the West has never hit the fever pitch seen in Midwest and East Coast states. There are many reasons that could explain our lack of bushy tail hunting mania, but suffice it to say, if you have a versatile gun dog, it’s yet another great opportunity to get out and have fun. Gray squirrels are excellent eating – some say even better than venison – and they can be found in many habitats. From the Coast Range to the valley floors, the Cascades to...

    Remember those Republicans who supported Nancy Pelosi and betrayed the American voters with this vote. – I have very often been thoroughly disgusted with the behavior of spineless, disloyal Republicans in the U.S. Congress, but seldom as disgusted as I felt on Wednesday afternoon. That was when we got news that 129 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat caucus in a vote to condemn President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. military personnel out of harm’s way as the Turkish military invaded Northern Syria on Sunday. That decision involved about 50 U.S....

Here’s the deal:I saw this photo of Fiona Hill arriving to testify, or whatever, in the Impeachment Inquiry, or whatever, conducted by the House Intelligence Committee, or whatever committee is investigating the President this week - I didn’t care enough to check but I presume at some point this circus has to move onto the Judiciary committee – and my only thought was:“Oh look, Fiona’s wearing black stockings! Maybe the bare-legged look is finally over.”Can I hear it for a return to grace?So there you have it, my...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Elijah Cummings died. – I have nothing nice to say about him, so I will say nothing at all. Here’s a link to the AP article about his death, which of course is a thoroughly one-sided, glowing review of his life. Somehow the Republic and Baltimore will survive. San Fran Nan is sick. – At least, according to President Donald Trump, who issued the tweet below after Pelosi blew up yet again in a White House meeting and staged a very theatrical walkout along with Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer: Donald J....

    On the evening of 15 October 1956 a Pan American Airlines Stratocruiser named Clipper Sovereign of the Skies lifted off from Honolulu, headed to San Francisco on a 2,000-mile flight. 24 passengers and seven crew were flying the final leg of their around-the-world flight, but still had 2,000 miles of open ocean to cross. 4 hours, 38 minutes into the nine-hour flight Capt. Richard Ogg climbed from 13,000 feet to 21,000. After leveling off, Clipper‘s Number 1 engine started spinning out of control. The cockpit suddenly jolts and the high-pitched noise of the runaway engine can be heard inside the...

    The clown show known as the Democratic Presidential debates has given us a sneak preview of our future government. There are a few things all the candidates agree on, open borders with mass immigration, an insanely increased welfare state, massive tax increases on the middle class, and an omnipotent government. All are fighting for the support of the socialist extreme of their party. This endorsement of socialism and extreme progressivism will either be devastating for the Democratic Party or our Republic. Never has generous welfare and open borders succeeded. In years past, I would point to the European countries as...

    I dont believe there has been one recent war that CNN and other major media outlets have not supported. They supported the War in Iraq, supported Obama bombing Libya and Yemen, and desperately want us to stay in Syria. The media supported the disastrous Arab Spring under Obama as well. They are willing to smear a Democrat of their own, Tulsi Gabbard, by evoking the Russian spy boogeyman and in a one two punch Pelosi did practically the same thing bringing up Putin concerning Trump. No war is too small that Trump will not be attacked over. Many media (I...

    Vanity. Concerning Pelosi's attack on Trump, what drove her to say that with Trump all roads lead to Putin? Virtue Signaling over the Kurds? Does she want to use U.S. troops as human shields in Syria on some misguided goal borne about by virtue signaling that Putin must be brought up to keep us in there? TDS? Does she have TDS so bad that we saw her engage in another round of accusations, this time bordering on Russian Collusion 1,059.0? Or is she indeed just itching for regime change in Syria so bad that she would actually stoop this low?

    Though it's not what they want, both Cardi B and Chance The Rapper believe that Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020. On Tuesday (Oct. 15), the pair appeared on T.I.'s new expediTIously podcast to discuss their new Netflix show, Rhythm + Flow. After jumping into Cardi's love for history, the topic turned to politics and both Chance and Cardi agreed that it's likely Trump will be leading the country for another four years. "The reason that we keep getting Presidents that we don't want is because we keep getting tricked into thinking we have a choice," Chance said on...

    Now that the lying machine that comprises the US and Western media has failed with the Russiagate propaganda, the machine has switched to Chinagate. The least trusted American Institution, other than the CIA, is the FBI. McClatchy news reports that the FBI has “expanded its task force on election security beyond examining Russian efforts ahead of the 2020 race to include intelligence activities by China, Iran and North Korea.” “A White House official told McClatchy that the National Security Council stands by its assessment made public in June that Beijing intends to influence the election to suit its interests.”...

    Illinois Review ^ | October 16, 2019 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    When I was growing up in Chicago’s northern suburbs, one of our local heroes was the late, great W. Clement Stone, founder of Combined Insurance. I recall being an awestruck college volunteer with the Young Republicans, manning the registration table at a Republican state convention, when Clem Stone came up to chat with us. His story was the stuff of legend: starting from nothing during the Great Depression, selling insurance door-to-door, and from that humble beginning, he became the multimillionaire founder of one of the great Illinois corporations. From time to time, we hear of others who also got their...

    FULL TITLE: While Jake Tapper Is Interviewing Kellyanne Conway, Jeff Zucker Tells Producer To Skip Commercials, Extend Interview, ‘Just F***Ing Nail Her’ While yesterday’s full video from Project Veritas #Expose CNN series was relatively tame, today founder James O’Keefe reports an instance that is truly despicable. While CNN host Jake Tapper was on the air interviewing White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway, CNN President Jeff Zucker enters the control room and tells the show’s executive producer to skip commercials, extend the interview from seven minutes to 25, and to “just f***ing nail her.” The whistleblower, Cary Poarch, donned his hidden...

    The breathtaking hypocrisy of many of President Donald Trump’s accusers is about to be fully exposed. If you’ve been watching the impeachment theater these past few weeks, you’ve no doubt heard the very serious crimes they accuse the U.S. president of having committed. They have accused him of using his office for political gain and pressuring Ukraine to help investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. The fake news media has begun a full-court press to sell the narrative of a besieged president who is slipping underwater, growing more and more unpopular by the day, as so-called whistleblowers and manufactured scandals...
