Celebrating American Martyrs

Not long after the Civil War ended, about 1,000 freed slaves, members of the U.S. Colored Troops, and some locals organized a ceremony to bury Union troops who died due to horrendous conditions at a prison that was formerly a racetrack, reports. They honored the dead by singing hymns and placing flowers on their graves. An archway over the cemetery was engraved with the [...]

Socialists Win One in New York City

At least one good thing came from Amazon pulling a $2.5 billion plan for new headquarters—it was a good business decision for Amazon. It will likely be in Amazon’s best interest to not have one of its East Coast HQs in areas where employees will be taxed to death, morale will be difficult to keep, and productivity will be at the mercy of the leftist socialist [...]

What will an overwhelming amount of uncertainties in global economies bring to our shores?

There are a few more economic problems globally that we can see right now -- and still more continuing to surface every day. These problems and issues are not all caused by geopolitical events or political uncertainties here in America. We now have real global growth concerns and an increasing risk of economies slowing even more. It would now appear that Wall Street has finally opened its eyes to some things that I [...]

The Left’s Political Fountain of Youth

The relentless culture warriors on the left have come up with a new recruitment tool: a constitutional amendment that would allow teens as young as 16 to vote. First proposed in Congress last August by Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., this movement has since appeared in other places, imitating the popular arcade game, Whac-A-Mole. It surfaced again in October in Nebraska, where a state senator proposed [...]

Is China coming to rescue a carbon-filled planet? Here comes the electric car in a big way—at least in China.

Building a Bigger Kingdom, Not Bigger Barns

We can't take our money with us, but we can see others come to faith in Christ through what the Lord provides. For many years on the radio, I have talked about the importance of taking a biblical approach to estate planning. For over 30 years, as I have helped many plan and grow their finances, I have come to understand how...

The Left on the Trump Economy—Desperation, Desperado or Both?

If you’re wondering about mainstream media and the lack of reporting on how great the economy is, understand this—the majority of mainstream media and mainstream economists believe that if they continue to talk down this economy, the “prophecy” will be self-fulfilled. Many on the left want the U.S. economy to fail in order to bring down Donald Trump. Take for example Bill Maher, the liberal [...]

Is It Time To Take A Breather on Investing?

There’s so much opportunity in the markets—primarily because of unprecedented enthusiasm and growth. This is an economy the likes of which we haven’t seen in at least 15 years, and even then, it was nothing compared to the levels we are seeing today.
