  • Don’t rule out a Bill Clinton-style 1990s boom for the economy, UBS says

    Instead of a repeat of the “Roaring 20s” from a century ago, this decade is now looking more like a no-recession 1990s boom economy, according to UBS Global Wealth. For a brief patch in 2021, markets were awash with talk of another “Roaring 20s” playing out. But that bullishness faded as inflation climbed above 5% and the Federal Reserve pivoted away from talk of “transitory” inflation to warning of the risks of it becoming trenchant. Then came the rate shocks of 2022, which left the S&P 500 SPX with a 19.4% loss, its worst yearly losses since 2008. The roughly...
  • President Trump shocks judge with game-changing document pulled from his pocket…

    The ongoing “fraud” trial led by Letitia James in New York City continues to unfold, and to anyone watching, it’s apparent that the highly biased TDS judge is already chomping at the bit to hand down a “guilty” verdict. This has always been the predetermined outcome for the first tragic act against Trump, and the rest will follow the same way. But President Trump understands this game and isn’t just rolling over. He actually floored Judge Engoron by whipping out a bombshell document right there on the witness stand—a total game-changer for this sham trial. And the judge’s reaction? It...

    Donald Trump has claimed that he won all 50 states in the 2020 US election at a Florida event where two of his rivals for the Republican presidential primaries were booed for suggesting the party should dump the former president before his legal woes catch up with him. "We won, the last time, 50 states, think of it, 50 states," he told the Freedom Summit, outside Orlando, Florida, on Saturday night. "We won every state. We then did great in the election. We got 12 million more votes or so … 12 million more votes than we got the first...

    Former President Donald Trump's final chief of staff in the White House, Mark Meadows, has spoken with special counsel Jack Smith's team at least three times this year, including once before a federal grand jury, which came only after Smith granted Meadows immunity to testify under oath, according to sources familiar with the matter. The sources said Meadows informed Smith's team that he repeatedly told Trump in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election that the allegations of significant voting fraud coming to them were baseless, a striking break from Trump's prolific rhetoric regarding the election. According to the sources,...

    During an interview with NewsNation aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Hill,” 2024 Republican presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis argued that if his rival Republican candidate former President Donald Trump had followed his promise to build a wall on the border, “it would have been much more difficult for Biden to get away with” the damage he’s done on the border.DeSantis said, “I do think, when he’s saying things, like, in Iowa, the other day, that, well, he couldn’t follow his campaign promise to have Mexico build the border — pay for the border wall, because there was, no...

    On Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” 2024 presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) stated that he’ll reform the college accreditation system so “instead of you have to have gender studies, or you have to have DEI to get accredited, it’ll be the opposite. We’re not going to accredit you if you have DEI and some of these other things.” Host Hugh Hewitt asked, “As president, what can you do about tenure from K-12 and in colleges that are state-funded?” DeSantis responded, “Through the accreditation cartel. So, we’re going to totally blow up the accreditation cartel. Right now, part of the...

    Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday directed the Florida Department of Education to suspend four schools from the state’s school-choice scholarship program because of their alleged “direct ties to the Chinese Communist Party.” “Through a thorough investigation, FDOE has determined that Lower and Upper Sagemont Preparatory Schools in Weston, Parke House Academy in Winter Park, and Park Maitland School in Winter Park have direct ties to the CCP and their connections constitute an imminent threat to the health, safety, and welfare of these school’s students and the public,” the DeSantis administration said in a statement.

    Authorities are investigating a suspicious package found in a van. The courthouse in Miami where Trump is set to be arraigned was blocked off by police on Tuesday morning as officers investigated an "unknown object." Steve Bannon reported that the fiasco is potentially a "bomb threat" and that the media was cleared out by law enforcement. Speaking on War Room, Natalie Winters said police had bomb-sniffing dogs out to check the scene, with the item in question being potentially a television left by someone. https:/ The primary police force seen inside the police line was the Department of Homeland Security,...

Nikki Haley and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, but no one in the poll — including those two...

    Fox News would have people believe that reparations are: "monetary compensation for slavery." Not only is that a demonstrably asinine and incorrect definition of the word, it's foundational ignorance that fosters antipathy. Reparations are defined as: repairing or keeping in repair; the act of making amends or giving satisfaction for wrong(s). There's not a single person in the U.S. who claims African as a prefix that deserves monetary reparations from America. I contend that everything these persons deserve they have in equal portion and more compared to others, beginning with the ability to murder their children, which I argue is...

    The Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyi was rocked by huge explosion after Russia reportedly sent 21 drones to an army silo causing enormous fireball which injured dozens. Vladimir Putin appears to be targeting ammunition storages in west Ukraine as Kyiv's counter-offensive approaches. Overnight on May 12, Russians are said to have attacked Ukraine with Shahed drones. Four drones hit an army facility causing an explosion which damaged nearby residential properties, as well as other buildings. Another 17 drones were shot down by air defense.

    FAU's survey is the strongest in-state poll for Trump yet. Another Florida poll shows that Ron DeSantis may have difficulty selling in-state Republicans on his presidential ambitions. A just-released survey from Florida Atlantic University shows former President Donald Trump leading the Florida Governor, 59% to 31%, among 1,081 registered Republican voters in Florida polled in mid-April. That margin is well outside the +/- 3-percentage-point margin of error.
