What Happened to President Obama?

As I listened to the speech that President Obama delivered in Cleveland on Wednesday, a sudden shiver went down my spine. I had the eerie feeling that the President didn’t seem himself. In fact, I was startled to discern that aliens had abducted the President and replaced him with a look-alike. My suspicions were aroused when I heard this cloned look-alike announce that small businesses needed tax relief since the private sector creates most... Read More

U.S. Senatorial Candidate Eric Wargotz: Incumbent “Dinosaurs” Overstayed their Role as Effective Legislators

Neal Asbury opened the show by suggesting that there were two significant themes that highlighted President Obama’s Oval Office speech last week. The first is the end of combat operations in Iraq, which is a great achievement that deserves recognition.

When Unions Punish Mexican Truckers, They Punish Americans

When Unions Punish Mexican Truckers They Punish Every American. As I have maintained countless times, NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) is by far the most beneficial trade legislation Congress has ever passed. Today, Mexico imports more U.S. made products than China and Japan combined. In fact, a guest on my radio show “Truth for America,” former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Carlos Gutierrez, noted that during 2008, the U.S. exported... Read More

Is China Going Green…Or Just Going Under?

China likes to make noise that they are adopting “Green” standards that will take the target off their backs from environmental groups who see China as the world’s leading polluter. Just recently they announced they are closing down 2,000 steel mills and other industrial sites that are polluting the skies. Green initiative or propaganda? You choose. The latest report out of China, as detailed in news reports, is that during the... Read More

Brookings Institution’s Bill Antholis: Lack of Clarity in Obama Agenda is Holding Up Job Creation

Neal Asbury opened the show by proclaiming: “We want to feel good again about this country.  We want our mojo back.”  He pointed to the staggering unemployment rate of nearly 30 percent (factoring those on unemployment; those who have stopped looking; and workers holding down “shadow jobs” where they are working part-time or are overqualified, over educated and underpaid for their current job). He likened this unemployment rate to those... Read More

John Negroponte Endorses Conscientious Equity

“Neal Asbury’s work is very important to understanding America’s role in global trade.” – John D. Negroponte “Conscientious Equity is written from the hands-on perspective of an American businessman who has been in the trenches of owning and operating his own business in the Philippines. This is a valuable contribution to our discussion about how to get economies, including our own, going again.”–John D. Negroponte,... Read More

Neal Asbury Featured on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart

My objection to the New York City Mosque is not a legal objection. We all know those that wish to build the Mosque are within their legal and constitutional rights. My problem stems from the simple concept of what is right and decent. The proposed Mosque is a couple blocks away from where a terrible and heinous war was begun on our soil. A war we did not invite or wish to fight. It is a war that is still raging. July was the deadliest month for Americans... Read More
