Political correctness gone wild: ESPN pulls Asian sportscaster from broadcast because his name was similar to Confederate general

There are many reasons why ESPN has been hemorrhaging subscribers over the past two years, but in particular it can be intrinsically tied to their liberal views, political correctness, and blatant race division.  For example a couple of years ago the network gave its sports courage award to a transgender who hadn't participated in a sporting event in over 30 years, and in recent weeks many of their televisi ...

Terrorism: the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Antifa terrorist group has origins going back to 1920’s Stalinist Russia

It is perhaps ironic that the liberal left, which includes the press and Democratic Party, has been trying to paint what happened in Charlottesville, VA as some sort of return of the Klu Klux Klan, a reconstitution of Nazism, or a revolution spurred on by White Nationalists.  However the more one digs into the evidence, the more one realizes that the event that occurred last week which saw a young woman kil ...

Odds for government shutdown rise to 50% as battle to raise debt ceiling expected to be difficult for Trump

When Congress pushed forward the debt ceiling debate earlier this year until October when the new budget was expected to voted up, there were medium to strong expectations of the Republicans being able to raise the debt ceiling in the same way Obama saw it raised several times during his administration.  However as the President continues to erode support from his own party and from the American people than ...

New California proposal could imprison healthcare workers for calling patients he or she incorrectly

In the state of California it appears the easiest way to become an elected politician is to have either the lowest IQ, or to be certifiably insane.  That is because over the past few years, multiple laws submitted or passed by the state legislature have virtually erased the bounds of common sense. From legalizing child prostitution, taxing of cow farts, and setting in motion the nullification of the 2nd Ame ...

America’s allies trust Vladimir Putin more on foreign affairs than they do President Trump and U.S. policy

And in an interesting poll published on Aug. 17 by the Pew Research Group, more countries trust President Vladimir Putin when it comes to foreign policy than they ...

Pelosi ignores Obamacare failures and blames Trump for skyrocketing increases to healthcare premiums

Democrats seem to have very short memories when it comes to failures in their own policies.  But even more so, when the electorate then votes them out of office for said failures their natural reaction is to then spin the blame onto the oncoming administration who had nothing to do with those policies. And at front and center of course is the colossal boondoggle that is Obamacare. So following several years ...

Mises institute weighs in on Bitcoin and cryptos as being more like stocks than currencies

Much of economics today is bound by two schools of thought, with the Keynesian model primarily dominating the financial, monetary, and political spheres within the real world.  But for the alternative community, it is the Austrian school of economics that is most highly prized, especially in their beliefs of a central bank free monetary system. So it is quite interesting when the main gatekeepers of Austria ...

At one time General Motors was the most valuable company in the United States, and had more employees than any other company or government outside of the Soviet Union.  Yet within just 50 years of this triumphant achievement, GM was not only on the cusp of insolvency, but their stock price had fallen to just barely over $1 per share. Fast forward to 2017... J.C. Penney was also one of the country's greatest ...

Gambling is still American’s favorite pastime

What if we told you that there was something you could get at your nearest gas station or convenience store that brings in more revenue per year than all the books, music, video games, movie and sports tickets bought annually combined? Well, it is true.  And that item which consumes more spending from Americans than virtually every other form of entertainment is the lottery. In 2016, Americans spent more th ...

Social Security Trust estimates it needs a $46 trillion bailout to sustain the program

According to a new report sent by the Social Security Trustee Board to Congress a few weeks ago, the nation's primary retirement program may need a bailout of $46 trillion to sustain it going into the future.
