Tim Kaine reveals he is another economic illiterate in the US Senate who may be the next vice president of the Untied States. His statement that the federal government “creates” jobs is absolute nonsense. He also states: “We will make college debt free for everybody. We’ll rewrite the rules so companies share profits with workers rather than ship jobs overseas.” In other words, more entitlements and more economic fascism. He also wants, “paid family leave, equal pay for women and raising the minimum wage to a living wage ‘to keep families together and to bring them out of the shadows.’ ” He and Hillary are economic authoritarians.
“Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while introducing running mate Tim Kaine in Florida, slammed Donald Trump and last week’s Republican National Convention as painting a dismal picture of America’s future.”

‘President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again — so he’s voting for Donald Trump. “I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post”
I have know this for more than 40 years. The chickens are coming home to roost. If Bernie had talked about the Federal Reserve, he would be the nominee. Ditto for Rand Paul.
“Time the Taskmaster DUBLIN – “Today’s money,” says economist George Gilder, “tries to cheat time. And you can’t do that.” It may not cheat time, but it cheats far easier marks – consumers, invest…”
Bernie’s people may upstage the carefully staged Hillary/Kaine coronation. Fasten to your seat belts.
Stranger things have happened in America.
Governor Christie should get on board with the latest proposal to fund the Transportation Trust Fund and provide much needed tax relief to the people of New Jersey. Is this a “perfect” compromise? No. But we need funds to fix our roads and bridges, lower taxes and lower spending and fewer regulations. The governor should work on the last two goals ASAP. Instead of focusing on Trump’s presidential campaign, he should do what he was elected to do–govern. If he is preoccupied with the presidential campaign, he should resign.
“Senate and Assembly Democratic leaders announced a new compromise Friday for raising the gas tax.”

“The story of Trump’s rise in popularity in the US is that grassroots Republicans and conservatives are turning their backs on the old Beltway shibboleths, like ‘American exceptionalism’, explains Ron Paul Institute executive director Daniel McAdams.”

“Hillary Clinton chose her running partner Friday evening.”
The 20th century experienced two horrific world wars because nations–organized criminal gangs–formed alliances. Our alliances could cause another one in Europe an/or in Asia, again.
“If there is one positive thing to be said about Donald Trump’s interview with The New York Times, it’s that the American public will not have to wait to see what his views about foreign and defense…”
…but readers need to see why our intervention in the Middle East is despicable, and so is the behavior of who the people the Obama administration is supporting.
“Rising asset prices stoke worries about bubbles forming.”
The Trumps are left leaning middle-of-the roaders. One of Trump’s ideas that is resonating with some libertarians is his skepticism of foreign intervention.
