    China’s ambitious urbanization plan is getting results: the country now has 102 cities housing more than one million people. The drive to move investment and infrastructure west to develop poor inland regions has had mixed results and created so-called ghost cities, in which the infrastructure and high rises are built but the residents don’t come. To reverse that trend, three local representatives at the recent National People’s Congress argued that urban planners should focus less on building skyscrapers and more on providing services and creating jobs for the displaced residents. The Guardian this week looks at the urbanization of China...
  • Joe Biden Regrets Not Running For President, but Does America Feel the Same?

    During a Friday speaking event at Colgate University, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that he regretted his decision to not run for President during the 2016 election. He stated his prior plans to run for office and believes that he “could have won.” Biden elaborated, claiming that he was “the best qualified.” Is this his way of acknowledging how inane it was for Democrats to elect Hillary Clinton (one of the most loathed politicians in American history) as their nominee? Apparently, Biden was seriously considering his bid for the Presidency, before the death of his son Beau Biden. When...

    A protest march to raise awareness about “PizzaGate” took take place in Washington, D.C.'s Lafayette Square on Saturday, March 25, near the White House and Blair House. The purpose was to call for an investigation into long term claims that pedophilia has become not only an established, but a thoroughly accepted practice in high places. Let the walls of the White House reverberate with "PizzaGate is Pedogate…INVESTIGATE!!" exclaims an online poster that links to @TitusFrost(@titusfrost).

    George Soros, Steven Rockefeller and Abigail Disney wrote to lawmakers and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo asking that their taxes be raised. The push for higher taxes is also endorsed by the Fiscal Policy Institute, a liberal-leaning economic think tank. While there is nothing stopping any of these billionaires from contributing as much of their wealth to the state government as they see fit, Ron Deutsch, the Fiscal Policy Institute's executive director, explained that "a voluntary donation by those who could afford it would not compel others who may disagree with the fiscal plans of the state to pay anything.

    "I think I could have won." I may not agree with his positions, I’m glad he’s not President, and he may be an inveterate gaffe-machine but, unlike many Democrat lifer-politicians, Joe Biden isn’t a bad person. Sure, we make a lot of jokes at his expense (and he does get a bit “gropey”) but at the end of the day he’s just Joe. Nobody really has anything too terrible to say about him - a rarity in modern American politics. He isn’t someone I want in the oval office, but he’s certainly not the monster Hillary Clinton is. That’s why,...

The American public is split as well along those lines. Nobody really believed that Obamacare, deplorably named the Affordable Care Act, would be amended to benefit the wishes of the American people, much less repeal it.

Did they ever intend to do this in the first place?

He is forcing a rethinking that will benefit America and the world. The State Department is one of the most bloated of federal bureaucracies. Front line consular officers, many just starting their careers at State, actually help Americans abroad. However, there are also countless “Hallway Ambassadors” who aimlessly roam from irrelevant meeting to obscure policy forum, killing time and our tax dollars.

    Mainstream Media has truly declared war on those of us who do not watch and agree with them. Sean Hannity of FOX NEWS was interviewed by Ted Koppel of CBS. But instead of playing the whole interview straight through, they hacked it up, leaving out essential parts. They made the interview to express what they wanted it to express. Hannity has thus asked them to play the unedited version straight through, and he is rightfully angry at their manipulation. “Why did Ted cut out my many examples of media bias?,” Hannity asked on Twitter.

Sitting on the northeast coast of China, Jing-Jin-Ji — which stands for Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei — is a central plank of the country's economic development plan over the next century.

    From the birth of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was vehemently against it. In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Paul noted the problematic rising premiums that Obamacare engenders in the individual market. He elaborately explained the much needed demand to eradicate Obamacare’s insurance mandates and high prices. The AHCA would have earned popularity among conservatives if Rand Paul was involved with the crafting of the bill. Speaker Ryan remained woefully out of touch with the AHCA’s dismal unfavorability; his determination to persist with the proposal serves as evidence of such. Senator Paul was one...

On the way in, I noticed the 30.07 sign that banned open carry in the restaurant. The 30.07 sign is required by Texas law, if a private property owner decides...

Opponents of legalizing, regulating and taxing pot say they don’t care how much revenue it could generate for Illinois’ failed finances.

Supporters says it could generate hundreds of millions of dollars a year for the state. Democratic...

    After withdrawing his health care bill from the House floor in an embarrassing defeat, Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday that “Obamacare is the law of the land” and will remain so “for the foreseeable future.” “I don't know what else to say other than Obamacare is the law of the land,” Ryan told reporters shortly after House Republicans canceled a planned afternoon vote on their alternative to Barack Obama’s 2010 health care reform law. “It's gonna remain the law of the land until it's replaced,” Ryan continued. “We did not have quite the votes to replace this law. And, so,...

    On the 40th anniversary of the publication of The Shining, Stephen King must be wondering if Washington is working on its own sequel. For the last couple months, Washington has been on edge, like we are all trapped in Overlook Hotel with every day bringing a new “jump scare,” often preceded by a telltale tweet. Indeed, a Twitter whistle has replaced suspenseful music to put the entire city on the edge of their seats. In this Shining sequel, however, people are sharply divided on who is the deranged ax-wielding villain in this lodge, the president or the press. Ironically, with...

    I am going to start this report by expressing to parents of America, how truly blessed you are to have a child. I lost a child, so I have a deep understanding of what a blessing he was to me. The pain of my loss has left me with a wound that will never heal. Events happen so fast, they sometimes leave us in a state of shock for years. The revelation we may have to face after that shock has worn off is we could have been a better parent by better protecting our offspring. There is a faction...

    Years of Democratic leadership abetted by a sycophantic media have done enormous damage to New Orleans When you read about the worst cities in the United States you’ll find that they all share a common characteristic: each has been under Democratic leadership for decades. Most of you have read horror stories about some of these cities; Detroit, Cleveland, Birmingham, St. Louis, and New Orleans. In many ways, the deterioration of these cities is a microcosm of what’s gone wrong with our nation. As the 1970s drew to a close, I decided to move to New Orleans. Media at that time...

    For weeks, rumors have circulated that Obama wiretapped Trump Towers during the 2016 campaign. Moreover, reports from the United States Intelligence community indicated that communications from Trump supporters, the Trump administration, and possibly the President himself, were “incidentally collected.” A careful observant cannot help but note the parallels between the current wiretapping scandal and the Watergate scandal occurrence from 1972. In 1972, Richard Nixon covered up a series of events which would soon become known as the Watergate Scandal. These events included Nixon wiretapping his political foes and using the FBI, CIA, and IRS to investigate groups and persons whom...
  • Schumer promises Gorsuch filibuster, so McConnell, McCain, and Graham tease Reid's 'nuclear' option

    Whatever it takes. This is a knife fight for the future of the country Whether you like to refer to it as “The Nuclear Option,” the “rule change,” or “The Reid Option,” know this: Rumors of its usage for the Neil Gorsuch appointment are everywhere. You’ll recall that, back in January, Chuck Schumer said “If they don’t appoint somebody good, we’re going to oppose them tooth and nail.” Then, just a few sentences later, he admitted that there really was no judge that Trump would nominate who Democrats could back. He basically promised endless filibuster in a doomed effort to...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump got his first court win on Friday in the challenges to his new travel and refugee executive order, as a federal judge ruled against a lawsuit backed by the Council on American–Islamic Relations in Virginia. US District Judge Anthony Trenga, in a 32-page opinion, found that the plaintiffs in the case — Linda Sarsour v. Donald Trump — were not likely to succeed in their challenge to the March 6 executive order barring travel from six Muslim-majority countries for 90 days and temporarily halting the refugee program.

    Coverage requirements eliminated, Medicaid benefits strengthened for elderly and handicapped people. What I keep hearing is that they’re working toward a vote of the full House at 3 p.m., although that could always change if they need more time to corral the votes. They just took a procedural vote, which doesn’t pass the bill but allows it to be amended as follows: Republicans have pushed the GOP health care overhaul past an initial procedural hurdle in the House.

    Her whole life is a break Earlier this week, you probably saw a story about Chelsea Clinton receiving a lifetime achievement award. The Hill ran it with some dubious language, and many people missed the fact that it was an award from “Lifetime” the television network. Failing to capitalize the “L” led to a firestorm about privilege, and how a woman who has achieved virtually nothing could be granted and award for her non-existent achievements. Carefull reading spared some of us who are inclined to agree with that sentiment.

    Garbage in Garbage out: Children lick lollipops, millennial groupies, a Canadian prime minister The image having sealed a message that was indelible, Canadian Liberals called back their cardboard cutouts of ‘ain’t-he-handsome’ Justin Trudeau from being used for hundreds of “diplomatic events”. “The government of Canada has spent a lot of money on cardboard cutouts of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, so that fans of Canada across the world can experience a moment with their magical and hunky leader.” (HeatStreet, March 22, 2017)
