How online gambling lures the most vulnerable

With the rise of cheating bots, the potential for money laundering and terrorism financing, and most recently, the revelation that Kim Jong-un maintains an online gambling hacker army to help fund his regime in North Korea, the integrity of virtual casino style games has long been in question. Now, skepticism has spread to the online gambling corporations themselves. Earlier this month, our very worst fears about the predatory practices of these corporations were confirmed in a new expose by Business Insider. Screenshots obtained by the publication reveal how internet casinos actively lure the most vulnerable among us.

New threat to tax cuts

Congressional Democrats are campaigning for control of Congress in November on a pledge to repeal the recent tax reform tax cuts. That would increase taxes on working people and their employers, taking back the jobs, bonuses, pay raises, and economic growth and recovery that tax reform is already producing.

Still waiting for the garlic bullet

- The Washington Times

Donald Trump called James Comey a “slimeball,” which is not a very presidential way to talk. But just this time we might have to forgive the president. James Comey really is a slimeball. Just about everybody says so.

Strike on Syria—who really won

President Trump and his national security team deserve high praise for their recent action in attacking Syrian chemical weapons facilities. They did everything right. Not only was it well-justified and timely, the president and his team did not rush into an attack but waited several days to evaluate the intelligence from various sources, develop attack options that met the president’s specific objective, and form a coalition with key allies Great Britain and France for the strike.

Trump is winning — that’s why the left is unraveling

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump rode into office on the wings, in part, of a promise to clean up the Deep State, drain the swamp and boot from places of influence those who’ve worked behind the scenes to undo America’s greatness, one unconstitutional usurpation at a time. It must be working. How else to explain how nuts the left’s been acting of late?

The anti-Trump media caravan rolls on

One of the most vexing aspects of daily life is the nonstop flow of anti-Trump propaganda masquerading as news analysis. That is, unless you hate Donald Trump, as most of the media clearly do. Fake news oozes from nearly every media pore, some of it more subtle than others.

The fast-moving field of artificial intelligence development is a lucrative one -- a head-spinning one -- an oft-surprising and exciting one.
