Left-of-center Time Magazine, and the right-of-center New York Post are known for their often creative covers.



Is this something to celebrate? “We Provide, You Decide.” © Other perspectives, welcome.

Time’s newest cover is meant as a slam on the Trump Agenda, making their case that the Trump Administration is taking a wrecking ball to the federal government as we know it.


The graphic rich video on this page from Steve Forbes explains why less is more for business and consumers, regarding government regulation.


MHProNews has spotlighted economic facts for years, and hit the issue heavily during the 2016 campaign season, with charts like the one below.

The White House Press Room’s West Wing Reads Today…


In economic news, the Washington Examiner reports that data from the Labor Department on Thursday showed that “the total number of workers receiving unemployment benefits again fell to the lowest level in nearly 44 years in mid-October,” a sign that “job creation is strong.”


Regarding the phony Trump dossier, the Wall Street Journal editorial board writes on the hidden joint financial actions of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign that make it appear “Democrats paid for Russians to compile wild allegations,” about President Trump, as well as the credibility of the investigation as a whole.


The Christian Post’s Samuel Smith writes on Vice President Pence’s promise to Middle Eastern Christian leaders that the United States will begin providing help to “rebuild their ancient communities” following the order President Trump gave to the U.S. State Department to enable U.S. aid funding to go “directly to faith-based organizations actively supporting Christians and other religious minorities displaced by the Islamic state.”


At the Associated Press, Erica Werner and Alan Fram write on the unity within the Republican Party after a pair of prominent senators denounced President Trump and invited their colleagues to join them. Instead, “most GOP lawmakers rallied around Trump and his agenda,” and voiced unqualified support,” for the President, Werner and Fram report.
