Then there is Oman. Call them the Greenville of the international world. They have something solid to offer, and they are executing a plan to successfully get the word out to those looking for a wise long-term investment opportunity. Photo courtesy of Oman Ministry of Commerce, Industry & Investment Promotion.

Oman means business … literally

Nearly every city, town and hamlet in the United States has an Economic Development Council (EDC) of some sort. The municipality operates some. Some are an offshoot of their local Chamber of Commerce. A few are free-standing entities. Published October 19, 2023

Can a prominent politician get a fair trial?

Imagine a wildly successful businessman who moonlights as a politician. Imagine that same man is elected to office and serves one tumultuous four-year term, perpetually under suspicion of wrongdoing amid apparent Russian connections. Picture this same politician constantly clashing with the media and with the political party in charge. Published October 12, 2023

The ultimate American poll, what does the U.S. really think?

As the 2024 Presidential race kicks into gear, so does polling season. It seems every organization has its own pollster and its own statistics. Major newspapers, broadcast networks, and even social media influencers must find that poll numbers get attention because all seem to use them. Would-be presidential candidates use polling, too, in an effort to gauge not only support for their candidacy but also what issues may resonate with voters. Published September 27, 2023

Ron DeSantis, former president Donald Trump, and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and bottom row from left, former Vice President Mike Pence, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Vivek Ramaswamy. With less than a month to go until the first 2024 Republican presidential debate, eight candidates say they have met the qualifications for a podium slot. But that also means that about half of the broad GOP field is running short on time to make the stage. (AP Photo)

The Republican pro-life charade

For nearly 50 years, Roe v Wade was the law of the land, ensuring abortion was legal, accessible and common in the United States. The great political fights over the years were about whether and when a fetus, the code word for baby, was viable in the womb. Unless a baby could live outside the womb, it was argued, it had no right to life. Published August 31, 2023

Former President Donald Trump's decision to back out of Fox News' first GOP primary debate this week likely costs the network a chance at a very large audience for the end of summer. It also tests the network's ability to pivot yet again after what has been a tough year, paying $787 million to settle a defamation lawsuit just as a trial was to begin, and firing popular personality Tucker Carlson shortly after the settlement.

Stop the nonsense: Impeachment as a political tool

On December 18, 2019, Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives. The impeachment was literally based on a third-hand conversation between an intelligence officer working in the White House as an Obama holdover and two men who, shortly after telling their story to the intel officer, took jobs with Adam Schiff, one of the Democrats' chief prosecutors in the impeachment hearings.

Renewable energy policies fueled by lies, pixie dust and your money

I was driving through my childhood home state of Maine on a rainy June day this year when I spotted a large field filled with solar panels. Not 20 minutes later, I noticed another. As I neared my destination, I spotted a third solar field, this one still under construction. "How odd." I thought to myself. Published August 10, 2023

Rockers ‘The Struts’ bring back traditional summer entertainment

Summertime in the United States has traditionally been a time when Americans relax and recharge. Major movie releases have long dotted the summer theater landscape and live concert music-filled venues from coast to coast. COVID-19, however, interrupted that long-established routine and for the better part of three years, those entertainment staples, along with their fans, suffered. Published July 19, 2023

Don’t underestimate Senator Tim Scott’s chances at becoming the GOP’s 2024 nominee

Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina is running for President of the United States. He is competing with several others for the nomination of the Republican Party. Many in the mainstream media appear to believe it is a forgone conclusion that Donald J. Trump will be the GOP nominee and thus, give little attention to other candidates. This is not only media malpractice, it is a blatant mistake. Published June 23, 2023

Why Bud Light’s transgender ad may have been a good thing

I had an oddly strong interest in politics at a young age. As an eight-year-old, I would argue with my sister on Sunday morning before church because I wanted to watch Face the Nation, inhibiting her ability to see reruns of I Love Lucy. Published April 20, 2023

Does America actually want socialism?

In the last couple of Presidential elections, many of the pollsters were embarrassingly off the mark in their read of the American public. One pollster, however, has put together an amazing run. After proving to be America's most accurate national poll in the 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 presidential elections, IBD/TIPP did it again in 2020. IBD/TIPP has now been the most accurate in each of the last five presidential election cycles. Published January 20, 2023
