As President Barack Obama accelerates towards his final day in office, the Welfare Chief is pushing through as many punitive regulations as he can possibly enact.  And besides the one where he unlawfully labeled all disability recipients as being 'mental defectives', thus robbing them of their 2nd Amendment rights to own a firearm, his newest scheme involves allowing Food Stamps (EBT Cards) to be used in ma ...

Sanctions against Russia have gone on so long that Moscow may never go back to previous trade partners

In the 20th century, and perhaps even after the advent of trade coalitions like the European Union, when international bodies implemented economic sanctions on a country, it was usually a death knell for their economy since anyone who broke the embargo was either investigated, fined, or hit with sanctions themselves.

Most Americans have heard that the National Debt in the United States is near or at $20 trillion, but very few realize that the debt problems are even worse when you calculate the total amount from all economies.  And with global debt rising by $17 trillion in 2016 from its total of $200 at the end of 2015, this equates to a debt to gdp ratio of 3.25:1. Or in easier terms to understand, 325% of the world's ...

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 ...
