Capitalism has lifted people from poverty and created widespread wealth for billions of people, most notably in China. Denise Hearn argues that the so-called capitalism that exists today is the antithesis of competitive marketplaces due to monopolies and oligopolies that dominate both the U.S. economy and China’s economy.
ROBERT STEELE: There is only one person who is both totally committed to President Donald Trump and who has the brains and the balls to be the next Director of National Intelligence. His name is Mike Flynn. The time has come for him to come back into the fight.
Here are the five reforms he can implement in service to the President with results well in time to impact on the 2020 election:
MoveOn has it right — Democratic candidates are rightfully boycotting AIPAC. Below are mugshots for all the speakers at the forthcoming AIPAC conference…each of them — including Members of Congress — tainted by association.

Outlining vision for countering Iranian conventional threat, prime minister curiously suggests ‘Israels’ near Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen.
PBI: Bayer’s German CEO is delusional and should be fired soon. Monsanto is dead. Although judge reduced award to $70M or so, there are thousands more lawsuits that will be won against Monsanto.
PBI: This is a variation of the tobacco campaign that took decades. It will not be over anytime soon. It is also a classic illustration of what happens when companies are allowed to ignore true cost economics (because government, academia, and media were corrupt and bribed to not do true cost economics), thus externalizing unrecoverable costs to future generations — costs that include the loss of diversity and human health from pollution and climate change.
Facing declines in the stock market after nearly two years of cheerleading, the president is attacking the central bank chief he picked for the post.
ROBERT STEELE: Politico has it completely wrong. There is nothing neutral about the Federal Reserve — it is the occupying army of the Deep State. The time has come to overturn the Federal Reserve Act. It would not be unreasonable for the President to recall Congress to do this prior to November elections.
The Federal Reserve is a SCAM. It issues promissory notes that allow it to steal, while allowing the creation of false wealth by bankers (normal people cannot just make up money) and imposing a 2% inflation target that amounts to both a tax on the public and the completion of the scam — by the time notes come due they are worthless. #EndTheFed.

The third reason I want to point to is the threat of a wider war, one that could reach beyond Palestine and Israel and even beyond the Middle East.
