Trump Warns Dems AGAIN: No Immigration Reform Without A Wall
President Trump has reminded Democrats yet again that he will not sign immigration reform that does not include a border wall. Trump’s proclamation comes as Congressional Democrats are trying to use tricks to pass DACA related amnesty bills. According to Breitbart: “President Donald Trump shoved cheap-labor immigration back into the November election by suggesting he would veto any amnesty which emerges from the discharge petition process, and also by urging Congress to pass his four-part immigration package.

Art Of The Deal: President Trump Says A North Korea Peace Summit May Still Happen If Conditions Met

Why Stories of Entrepreneurship Are So Inspiring
Entrepreneurs are people who don't accept the world as it is but imagine the world as it could be. Starting a business is courageous. In the film The Founder, McDonald's founder Ray Kroc is shown standing in front of the dirt lot which will become his first McDonald's restaurant. Ray kneels down and scoops up a handful of dirt. "Please work this time," he whispers. He has a string of failures behind him and has mortgaged his house to finance his dream of a new kind of fast food restaurant because no bank would take a chance on him.

U.S. Schools Don't Measure Up, and Polling Shows Both Republicans and Democrats Know It
Identifying that a problem exists is the first step to solving it. There’s often a perception that Americans are so proud of their country and its “exceptionalism” that they are blind to any of its flaws. That may be true in some cases, but a recent Pew Research Report calls that into question in one area especially: Public schools.Pew asked respondents to compare various institutions with those in other nations. The American military got the biggest raves, followed by standard of living and scientific achievements. Public schools, however, were at the bottom. In fact, a whopping 41 percent of respondents rated America’s public schools below average when compared to those in other countries.

Seattle's 'Eat the Rich' Economic Strategy Won’t Solve Its Underlying Problems
The left is sleepless in Seattle, working overtime to squander years of economic success. Seattle is, by many measures, one of the fastest-growing cities in America, if not the fast-growing city. A few big tech companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, plus other large, successful businesses such as Boeing and Starbucks, have fueled this explosive rise. But prosperity hasn’t necessarily bred contentment, as the traditionally left-wing city turned on the elements that made it rich. In the latest move to soak the productive part of the city’s economy, the Seattle City Council voted 9-0 to approve a new “head tax” imposing a $275-per-worker charge on companies making over $20 million a year.

Middle-of-the-Road Policy Leads to Socialism
An address delivered by Ludwig von Mises before the University Club in New York, April 18, 1950. The course of events in the past thirty years shows a continuous, although sometimes interrupted progress toward the establishment in this country of socialism of the British and German pattern. The U. S. embarked later than these two other countries upon this decline and is today still farther away from its end. But if the trend of this policy will not change, the final result will only in accidental and negligible points differ from what happened in the England of Attlee and in the Germany of Hitler. The middle-of-the-road policy is not an economic system that can last. It is a method for the realization of socialism by installments.

Why the PC Faithful Are Outraged More by Speech Than Violence
In the Political Correctness religion, speech is violence and actual violence is passé. This week, the Political Correctness religion mass-hallucinated that Trump called illegal immigrants animals because many of its members feel that way and deeply want to atone for it. Media accusers damned Trump's description of gangs like MS-13 as “animals” as an attack against all illegal immigrants. Millions smudged their touchscreens in thunder. As Desmond Burke said, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to tweet nothing.

No, We Are Not Running Out of Forests
Recently on the BBC, Deborah Tabart from the Australian Koala Foundation noted that “85 per cent of the world’s forests are now gone.” Luckily this statement is incorrect. Moreover, due to afforestation in the developed world, net deforestation has almost ceased. I’m sure that Tabart had nothing but good intentions in raising environmental concerns, but far-fetched claims about the current state of the world’s forests do not help anyone. The record needs setting straight. Once nations hit around $4,500 GDP per capita, forest areas begin to increase.

Trump: “Spygate Could be One of the Biggest Political Scandals in History”
Last year, when President Trump accused Barack Obama of having tapped his phones just prior to the election, the media dismissed it as the unsubstantiated raving of a loose-cannon politician. But now we know that the Obama-era government did that and more, with the revelation that the FBI had actually placed a spy inside the Trump campaign. And Trump is now taking the offense, dubbing the affair “Spygate” and vowing to have the Department of Justice investigate the matter. So some Deep-staters may today be rather nervous.

Dino-Killing Asteroid Impact Warmed Earth's Climate for 100,000 Years
Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere after the impact of the Chicxulub asteroid, which ended the era of dinosaurs some 65 million years ago, warmed the Earth's climate for 100,000 years, a new study has revealed. The study, based on an analysis of fossil records, suggested that the Earth's overall temperature increased by 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) over that time. The results raise concerns about how long it will take for the planet to recover from the effects of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, said Kenneth MacLeod, a professor of geological sciences at the University of Missouri and lead author of the new work, published today (May 24) in the journal Science.
