“It’s A Disgrace” – Trump Threatens To Remove Calfornia ICE Officers From Law-Breaking Sanctuary State

Law-abiding California citizens may well face a real-life “purge” if President Trump’s disgust with the Sanctuary State’s liberal leaders is acted upon.

David Stockman: “This Time Is Completely Different…But Not In A Good Way”

Authored by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, If you don’t think the stock market is a giant accident waiting to happen, just consider the two most crucial developments—-soaring stocks and soaring deficits— since November 7, 2016.

Via AdventuresInCapitalism.com, About a year ago, I read The Great Beanie Baby Bubble by Zac Bissonnette.
