As the Senate prepares on day one to repeal parts of Obamacare, Trump is set to begin construction of border wall

After years of intense gridlock that allowed President Barack Obama to unlawfully legislate from the Executive Branch using his 'phone and pen', the new Republican led government is not sitting on their laurels and is preparing for action the moment Donald Trump is sworn into office. Jan. 3 marked the first day of the new Congress and the Senate has already begun preparations to repeal parts of Obamacare un ...

Just as with Japan in the 80’s, China seeks to expand their industry on the U.S. mainland in 2017

The world changed when President Richard Nixon closed the gold window and took the dollar off the Bretton Woods standard back in 1971 as it led to nearly a decade of recession, and a changeover in their long-standing positive trade deficit.  And even with the short lived economic recovery in the 1980's under Ronald Reagan, the die was cast for newer economic powers to one day usurp American industry. When a ...

Hollywood liberal hypocrisy: actors advocate for forced minimum wage except when it comes to their industry

In the aftermath of the November election, four new states approved referendums to increase minimum wages beginning in 2017.  And at the forefront of these popular votes was an army of liberal activists who spent much of the year funding protests that would call for hiking wages for individuals doing entry level or low skilled work. But as we know from those who are politically positioned in the far left, l ...

Land of fruits and nuts: legislator proposes banning single adults from being allowed to go to public parks

As well known radio show host Michael Savage famously attests to, liberalism is a mental disorder.  And in a new ordinance proposal from a lawmaker out in California that seeks to ban single adults from being allowed to go to public parks out of some fantastical belief that all non-married individuals over the age of 18 are either pedophiles or junkies, validation of the mental state of liberals in general ...

Europe stands quietly awaiting the outcome of the new sanction rhetoric from Washington and Moscow

In the end the only real loser from the economic sanctions imposed against Russia three years ago by the United States has been Europe.  And this has mostly been because of the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to implement his own counter sanctions in response to this that included EU nations since they voted to follow lock-step with Washington back in 2014. So with this in mind, and the f ...

European Central Bank changes capital requirements so that insolvent Deutsche Bank can pay big bonuses

Never let yourself be fooled... the SOLE purpose of a central bank is to aid in the profit and stability of their member banks.  If by their monetary policies they happen to aid the sovereign nation they are tied to, then it is nothing more than coincidence or happenstance. Eight years ago, when the financial crisis led the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve to beg for a taxpayer funded bailout of the banks, ...

President-Elect Trump’s new Commerce Secretary calls for stealing business away from Britain as they transition out of EU

When it comes to business, there are no such things as 'time outs' or mercies in regards to your competition.  In fact, when you discover that an individual, company, or nation state is under some form of duress, then that is an open opportunity to jump in and seize their customers out from under them. And this is exactly what President-Elect Donald Trump's new Commerce Secretary nominee Wilbur Ross is call ...

Santa stopped in China this Christmas season to pick up gifts, rather than to drop them off

Politicians and economists love to use generic words that have infinite meanings dependent upon the perspective of the speaker.  One in particular is the concept of 'free trade', whereby its meaning over the past 20 years is for companies to manufacture items anywhere that offers the cheapest labor, then sell the produced items back to the very people who used to produce them to begin with before the advent ...

Brexit keeps looking better and better for the UK as an EU court just provided veto power on any trade deal for up to 48 bodies

One of the primary reasons why Britain voted to leave the European Union earlier this year was the fact that the European Commission (EC) was usurping more and more political power over coalition nations when their original mandate was simply to exude economic power.  And in the course of the past six months alone since Brexit, the EC has even put to the vote a decree to form its own European military arm t ...

Bitcoin skyrockets to over $900 as currencies begin to crater in China, Canada, and Australia

Over the past three days, Bitcoin has soared by more than $180 as it climbed over $900 per coin for the first time in three years.  And expectations of the crypto-currency crossing over the $1000 USD threshold before the end of the year is not out of the realm of possibility. The primary reasons behind this parabolic move is the collapsing of several currencies late this week which include China, Canada, an ...

Facebook’s new ‘fact checker’ for fake news under suspicion for embezzlement and dumping wife to marry a porn star

For years most publishers on the internet and in the alternative media have come to the conclusion that Snopes.com is little more than a propaganda site for the progressive and liberal parties.  In fact, it appears that around the start of this year's election, the website began moving away from the debunking of urban myths and laid its claim as a political 'fact checker'. Now their 'fact checking' crusade ...

More young adults now living at home with their parents since the start of World War II

The last time so many young adults were living under their parents roof, the United States was in the final days of the Great Depression and on the threshold of entering into World War II.  And perhaps this is a signal that history may be ready to repeat itself both economically, and even geo-politically. Contrary to the mainstream's fake news propaganda throughout the entire Barack Obama presidency when it ...
