    An academic tipped to be President Donald Trump's White House Science Adviser has called for the United States to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. Professor William Happer, a Princeton physicist, told The Telegraph in an interview: "I hope he will. Our friends in Europe wanted it so everybody had to sign up but it's a complete waste. ... "It (the Paris agreement) is not going to hurt the environmentalists, it's going to hurt people in Asia and Africa and I think it's profoundly immoral. What people there need is electricity you can afford. Prosperity, what's wrong with that? This...

Let’s investigate. Unprepared for Nearly Anything * 50% are woefully unprepared for a financial emergency. * Nearly 1 in 5 (19%) Americans have nothing set aside to cover an unexpected emergency. * Nearly 1 in 3 (31%) Americans don’t have at least $500 set aside to cover an unexpected emergency expense, according to a survey released Tuesday by HomeServe USA, a home repair service. * A separate...

    It can't happen! It won't happen! Please please please . . . Sean Hannity gave a litany of statistics the other night about crimes committed by illegal immigrants in this country. In response, Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera complimented Sean on his statistics, and then immediately pivoted to what the TV news stories would look like if the administration was rounding up 11 million “undocumented” immigrants in this country. Geraldo’s pivot was pure speculation. The administration’s latest directives on immigration say nothing about rounding up 11 million people.

We recognize you're going to set the economic field for the Middle Class to come roaring back to life, can we celebrate that?

    In trying to depict what an 80s redux will be like to my young'uns, less the crackbabies, AIDS, smog, etc., the most profound human recovery will be Freedom, which most kids under 30 don't seem to have an acquaintance with. Since 9/11, American culture has taken a permanent nosedive: music, film, art, education, everything, and here we are with a clean re-boot handed to us by DJT. What do you want to bring back? What should we diligently avoid as consequences of freedom and prosperity that half the nation doesn't have the experience or wisdom to handle competently this time...
  • Everything Is Soaring As Trump Makes Buying Stuff Great Again

    Tyler Durden November 10,2016 Who would have thought - as recently as two days ago - that a Trump presidency is the best thing for global risk? Certainly not Wall Street experts, all of whom warned of drops as big as 5% should Trump be elected. And yet, the global repricing of inflation expectations continues at a feverish pace in the aftermath of the Trump victory, leading to another surge in US equity futures, up 15 points or 0.7% to 2175 at last check, with Asian and European stock market all jumping (Nikkei was up a whopping 6.7% after losing...

    Townhall.com ^ | October 15, 2016 | David R. Usher
    Donald Trump is leading America’s third war of Independence (the first two being in 1776 and the War of 1812). Donald Trump’s declaration of independence from the Establishment in both parties was long coming.  He bounced between parties for two decades before coming to the conclusion that both parties worshipped globalism. He had no choice but to run for the Presidency.  His candidacy is in fact America’s Third War for Independence.  Trump’s campaign touched the taproot of the Electorate.  Most Americans cannot quite put a finger on the reason,  but understand one thing: they know they have been sold...

    John D. Rockefeller was the richest man the world had ever seen.But for most of his adult life he didn’t have electric lights, air conditioning, or sunglasses. And he never had penicillin, sunscreen, or Advil. This is not ancient history: One in twenty Americans were born before Rockefeller died.The majority of Americans think the next generation of adults will be worse off than their parents.I think of two things when I hear this.One, the pessimists are probably wrong, extrapolating a bad decade into infinity. Two, progress is like compound interest – you don’t even notice it in the short run,...

We are at a decisive moment in this election. Last week, I laid out my plan to bring jobs back to our country. Yesterday, I laid out my plan to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism. Tonight, I am going to talk about how to make our communities safe again from crime and lawlessness. Let me begin by thanking the law enforcement officers here in this city, and across this country, for their service and...

    The American Specator ^ | March 16, 2016 | Ross Kaminsky
    Donald Trump and his fellow liberals Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are lambasting free trade as the scourge of the American working man. How odd it is that an economic activity so beneficial to almost every American, indeed to the vast majority of the human race, suffers such attacks with only half-hearted defenses raised by politicians who should know better and economists who do know better. I stipulate: in trade, as in any economic endeavor, there are losers in the short run. Capitalism is, after all, fundamentally a system of creative destruction. But if there is any area of agreement...

    Presidential elections are about, above all, just two things: our security and our prosperity. Promises of prosperity have all but faded into the background... except by Donald Trump. In the last debate in which he participated Donald Trump hit the voters' target bull's eye in stating "I want to use that same up here, whatever it may be, to make America rich again." None of the other candidates came close to featuring The Message we voters wish to hear. Prosperity. If the other candidates - most notably #2 Ted Cruz - wished to gain the voters' hearts, or at least...

    From time to time I hear from old friends, and sometimes from strangers, wondering why I occupy myself with what they regard as “woo-woo” stuff – that is, New Thought and positive-mind traditions. They are right about my commitments. Since the 2014 publication of my One Simple Idea, a history and analysis of positive-mind metaphysics, I have grown more dedicated to exploring the use and viability of the core mind-power thesis, which is: thoughts are causative. My aim is not to disembark from “serious” esoteric traditions (more on that in a moment); nor is it to discontinue my work as...

I think they're full of crap, and I intend to prove it. So this multi-part series The Case for Donald Trump - is loosely based on "20 REASONS WHY IT SHOULD BE DONALD TRUMP IN 2016" written by the brilliant A.J. Delgado, whose columns have appeared in Breitbart, National Review, American Conservative, Fox News, etc, AND she holds a juris doctorate from Harvard Law School. Did I mention...AJ is a girl?

    A report released by the American Enterprise Institute’s Institute for Family Studies showed that strong families have a direct impact on the economy in the states where they live and work and that married parents raising children are better predictors of economic mobility, child poverty and median family income than other demographics such as race or education. “Higher levels of marriage, and especially higher levels of married-parent families, are strongly associated with more economic growth, more economic mobility, less child poverty and higher median family income at the state level in the United States,” the report stated. Using data from...

    Ireland is on track to maintain its stellar growth record after the low euro helped boost exports in the second quarter of the year. The government predicted GDP would expand by 6% this year, matching last year’s post-crash record and maintaining Ireland as the fastest-growing economy in the eurozone.

    Labor Day, 2015 Dear Mr. Trump…(with some trepidation this is posted) Sir, if you are chosen to “make America great again”, understand it is a divine mission from God, much larger than yourself, your ego, your image or any business you’ve ever conducted! I don’t know if you are a Godly man, a conservative, a huckster, a tyrant or our next president… but you have lit the fire of real hope (not the phony Obama kind) among many of us who in deep frustration, no longer feel represented by those we elect. I don’t know if you’re the best vehicle...

A Greece-style crisis of national-government expenditures may occur as some have predicted, but would only be a symptom of a greater problem. The fundamental driver of crisis since at least September 11, 2001, and more acutely since the Great Recession...
