This time, the recipient of all the backlash is the socially aware NBA. It appears that a league that has prided itself at being at the forefront of the social justice movement and free speech doesn’t mean it. What Happened? It’s all social media’s fault. If people couldn’t share their thoughts with such ease with the millions and millions of people…

Joe Biden’s China Gaffe Betrays Utter Economic Ignorance

At a recent campaign stop, Joe Biden balked at the idea that China competes with U.S. businesses. The apparently-clueless former vice president actually pointed to disadvantages in the geography of China’s territorial land. He also made a glib reference to corruption in Chinese society. As if the most hallowed halls of the American government and economy weren’t rotten to the core. As if the Obama administration had actually punished Wall Street for all that corruption fat-cat bankers wrought in 2008. Joe Biden on China: ‘They’re Not Competition’ for United States…

Mueller Report Boss Rod Rosenstein Resigns in Veiled Nod to Trump

By CCN: Rod Rosenstein is the latest high ranking official to depart the White House. The man who oversaw the widely publicized Mueller Report is heading for the hills for fear of a grilling from both Democrats and Republicans. One of Trump’s favorite punching bags, the Deputy Attorney General’s letter of resignation is a strange combination of justifying his actions and praise for his former boss. Rod Rosenstein’s Resignation Letter Appears to Be Pro-Trump Even reading between the lines, this letter of resignation is extraordinarily two-faced. The president at one…
