Obama Fights for Coal in Ukraine
by Tom McGregor    Fri, Apr 18, 2014, 12:18 AM

When Barack Obama campaigned for President in 2008, he told a group of Eco-investors in San Francisco that he would wage a war on coal. Nonetheless, he is considering a deployment of US Troops to the Eastern Ukraine to protect coal mines from falling into the hands of Moscow.

According to the Moscow Times, "With increased tensions in eastern Ukraine, home of the coal basin in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the energy future of the country seems as bleak as ever. Despite being Europe's preferred alternative to Russian gas, coal does not often receive much spotlight. Ironically, most of Europe's growing coal import comes from Russia anyway."

USA Irate Putin Not to Invade Alaska
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Apr 17, 2014, 09:25 PM

The American Empire continues to crumble and yet we march forward to our doom without realizing just how foolish we look to the rest of the world. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he will not invade Alaska, because it's "too cold." Nonetheless, neo-Conservatives and the American media is denouncing Putin for making those comments. That's like saying you have a "kick me" sign on your back and complaining that nobody is kicking you.

ABC News reports that, "Tell us how you really feel, Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader, who recently annexed Crimea from Ukraine, dissed Alaska today in his annual marathon question-and-answer session. Asked by a Russian woman if the U.S. state could be his next conquest, Putin seemed disinterested in adding it to his growing empire."

Putin Answers Ordinary Russians' Questions for 4 Hours
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 16, 2014, 11:54 PM

Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to host his annual, "Hotline Session" in which he answers questions from ordinary Russians for four hours straight. Just imagine, President Barack Obama trying the same routine talking to oridinary Americans without using a teleprompter.

According to Reuters, "With Russian troops massed on the border with Ukraine, prospects of significant progress at the four-way talks appear slim. By contrast, what Putin says during his annual "hotline" session with the Russian people may have far greater influence on events in Ukraine's rebellious east."

Catching an Insider View of the Chinese Economy
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 16, 2014, 10:29 PM

BEIJING:  The Dallas Blog has just received a special Web link that discloses what key insiders are saying about the Chinese economy. A magazine, published by EY in Asia, is delivered in print to major power brokers in Wall Street and Washington D.C, as well as London and Hong Kong bankers. Apparently, the magazine has not been sold to the mass public, due to its so-called special business insights.

However, the 'On the Beam' website has not been fully developed, so when opening the link, you can only download the first or second editions in their entirety and scroll down to your favorite article. Nonetheless, sources have confirmed to the Dallas Blog that an On the Beam Website upgrade is coming soon and it might turn into a Drudge Report format that may offer Greater China 24/7 news and views updates.

Jeb Bush is 'Middle America,' Claims GOP Establishment
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 16, 2014, 08:14 PM

Who do you believe best symbolizes Middle America conservatism: Duck Dynasty Robertson family, Larry the Cable Guy or perhaps even Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler? However, the GOP Establishment is claiming that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a billionaire and Common Core (ObamaCore) propagandist, is the ideal role model for Middle America. 

The Daily Beast reports that, "Jeb Bush recently stuck a stick in the GOP beehive on immigration and common core education standards. He had the audacious decency and candor to say that people who came to the Unites States illegally in search of a better life for their children "broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love." And Bush has been a vocal supporter of education standards that specify what math and reading skills students should achieve in each grade."
