10 Market Indicators – Yahoo Finance Closing Tickers on MHProNews…



Tonight’s Business/Market/Political Impact Spotlight –

Composite still from video below, text by MHProNews.

Forbes Media chairman billionaire Steve Forbes, FOX Business’ Susan Li, former Obama Administration economic adviser Robert Wolf and Fox News contributor Scott Martin discusses the backlash and controversy Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) faced backlash after tweeting out a list of donors to President Donald J. Trump.



It should be noted that at least one of those outed donors reportedly contributed to Castro, not just President Trump. Some people play both sides of the political aisle, and perhaps the person that did that research for Castro didn’t bother to consider what Democrats those same people gave to as well?

MHProNews has said for some time that boycotts and intimidation tactics have a chilling effect on business, free speech, and the proper functioning of a republic.

Despite the rhetoric of some,  there is an effort to silence free speech, and thereby limit constitutionally protected, God-given rights.  Those should be rejected regardless of party labels. Slurs and slander are not the same as fact-checks on issues and vigorous debates on legitimate questions.

As a final note for tonight, recall that early this week ‘the sky was falling’ due to China and trade. A recovery began yesterday and continued today.  It’s still about 15 months to voting in November 3, 2020.  The economy may not be as hot as one would wish, but barring a major war or some calamity, don’t be surprised if it is still doing better than it was in 2016. Good economic policy is good for business and America, regardless of party labels.
