  • Remembering John McCain

    Remembering John McCain

    The death of Senator John McCain over the weekend, although expected, brought out an avalanche of emotions and well-deserved tributes, praise and recollections of the American patriot. The 6-term senior senator from Arizona was an iconic figure within the hallowed halls of the Senate. He was ...

    Trump’s Biggest Blunder: Jeff Sessions

    While we can’t be sure that President Trump considers his biggest mistake as president the appointing of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, we’d imagine it would certainly fall within his top five. Sessions, by all accounts, was a hardworking and principled senator – and a big ...
  • When Liberals Play Dirty on the Polls

    When Liberals Play Dirty on the Polls

    I recently had an opportunity to see how liberals act when they are campaigning for their favorite politician or judicial candidate. It wasn’t pretty. Most of the individuals that came out as volunteers to catch those early voters were behaving badly…very badly. I saw “paid agitators” wreaking ...
  • President Trump and “The Kanye Effect”

    President Trump and “The Kanye Effect”

    Before we go any further and perhaps get carried-away with the Rasmussen poll numbers, it’s noteworthy to point out that the Pew Research Center had the president’s approval among black voters at 14% in June. The “anti-Trump” and irrelevant NAACP had the president’s approval rating at an ...

    Are Facebook and YouTube quasi governmental actors?

    ONE of the internet’s most odious conspiracy theorists has had his videos and podcasts removed from Apple, YouTube, Spotify and Facebook.

    Musk, like Trump, uses Twitter as mega phone

    Social media has handed a megaphone to anyone who wants one, and the world is still trying to work out how to cope. This applies to financial markets as much as anything else, as you can see in the latest share price-moving Twitter storm from Elon Musk.  For regulators, it’s becoming a ...

    Is Trump’s ‘Arab NATO’ What’s Needed to Get Iran in Line?

    Earlier in the month, President Donald Trump said he was planning a summit with Arab Gulf leaders in October to discuss how to handle Iran.  Officially called the Middle East Strategic Alliance, which has been informally referred to as “Arab NATO,” the group is made up of ...

    Inside Google’s plan to stalk your social media accounts

    Google, once again, is excited about social media. But not in the ways you might think; this isn’t about another in a failed string of chat apps, or the knockout success that never was in Google Plus. Instead, it’s an entirely new way of recognizing human faces, and one made possible by — you ...
  • Economy Continues to Flourish Under Pres. Trump

    Economy Continues to Flourish Under Pres. Trump

    President Trump campaigned on the promise to boost economic growth to 4%, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing now. The US Commerce Department on Friday reported 4.1% GDP growth for Q2 (April-June), which marks the strongest performance since Q3 of 2014. Growth during Q1 of 2018 was 2.2%. ...

    US officials this week detected what appears to be renewed missile activity in North Korea. Imaging from US spy satellites shows vehicles moving in and out of the same factory that was used to produce the Hwasong-15, the first North Korean ICBM capable of reaching the United States. The news is ...
