George Soros Besides their age – 89 – George Soros (born Schwartz György) and Warren Buffett, profiled here last week (see Part 1), have much in common: Both are billionaires.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) could employ 75 recruiters full time to work on hiring 7,500 agents in a year. At $80,000 each staff employee, that’s $6 million total. Each of the 75 would work with 100 applicants a year – not a day or week, but a year!. That’s about one every three days. Plenty of time for holidays, afternoon golf, surfing where available, Facebook at work, […]

It came to pass on the 23d day of the 9th month in the beginning of the 20th Century that a troubling cloud appeared atop Wichita, Kansas. In the fields below, ground and trees trembled at the first cries of a certain infant arrived, a child of dark forces, who would bring misery to so many for so long. And his name was Fred Koch.

The Economist/YouGov poll of Aug. 3-6 on Wednesday, last week, listed the standings of candidates for the 2020 Democrat Party primary, and it was a somewhat different result than last week’s blog on the Harvard-Harris survey. Joseph Biden – 22% Elizabeth Warren – 16% Bernie Sanders – 13% Pete Buttigieg – 8% Kamala Harris – 8% Tulsi Gabbard – 3% Andrew Yang – 2% Beto O’Rourke – 2% All others […]
