The Trump Economy Continues …

As reported at CNBC, Nonfarm payrolls expanded by 196,000 and the unemployment rate held steady at 3.8%. Also, Wall Street closed out another solid week of gains Friday as the stock market hit its longest winning streak in a year and a half. Coupled with the recent news of unemployment weekly claims at a 50 year low and we have  Trump economy that is booming at Democrats play partisan, obstruction politics. America, who is working for you and who is just playing political games?

Trump Thumbs up

Job creation posted a solid rebound in March, with nonfarm payrolls expanding by 196,000 and the unemployment rate holding steady at 3.8%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.

That was better than the 175,000 Dow Jones estimate and comes after a dismal February that had economists wondering whether the decade-old economic expansion was nearing an end. The unemployment rate met expectations.

“With a strong March employment report now in the books, we’ve gotten some reassurance that the labor market is still strong,” said Steve Rick, chief economist at CUNA Mutual Group. “Of course, last month’s nosedive was disappointing, especially after December and January had such impressive numbers despite some sizable headwinds. But a good March report shows that February was more of an outlier than a canary in the coal mine.”

Tonight’s Guests.

Would you kill for love? True-crime master Ron Franscell tells the grisly story of Alice and Gerald Uden, a loving couple who murdered at least four people, and live happily ever after–while cops try for decades to piece together a petrifying tale of murder and secrets. The appalling details are made even more vivid by the author’s familiarity with the Wyoming times and places that formed the backdrop of his national bestseller The Darkest Night.

  • Author and Clinical Psychologist  Dr Gary Brucato discussing his book, ‘The New Evil’

Revisiting Dr. Michael Stone’s groundbreaking 22-level Gradations of Evil Scale, a hierarchy of evil behavior first introduced in the book The Anatomy of Evil, Stone and Dr. Gary Brucato, a fellow violence and serious psychopathology expert, here provide even more detail, using dozens of cases to exemplify the categories along the continuum. The New Evil also presents compelling evidence that, since a cultural tipping-point in the 1960s, certain types of violent crime have emerged that in earlier decades never or very rarely occurred.

Ex-Trump Campaign Chief Paul Manafort Sentenced to 47 Months for Bank & Tax Fraud in Mueller Case … Nothing to do with Russian Collusion



As reported at CNBC, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced to only 47 months in prison, a far shorter length of time than prosecutors in the case had argued for and liberals had salivated over. Manafort will serve only 38 more months of the 47-month sentence because of time he has already spent in jail.  Prosecutors argued that Manafort receive a sentence between 19-to-24-year in prison length suggested by federal guidelines. Not even close. This had nothing to do with Russian collusion and was excessive from the outset. If this was the crown jewel of the Mueller probe, it truly has been a witch hunt.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis emphasized ahead of sentencing that the Manafort case was not about Russian interference in the 2016 election.


  • A federal judge on Thursday sentences President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort to serve 47 months in prison.
  • Manafort had been convicted in the Virginia court last summer on eight counts of bank fraud, tax fraud and failing to file a foreign bank account report.
  • “He has lived an otherwise blameless life,” the judge says of Manafort, a central figure in the special counsel’s Russia probe.

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort to serve 47 months in prison, a far shorter length of time than prosecutors in the case had argued for.

The decision from federal judge T.S. Ellis in Virginia comes less than a week before Manafort’s second sentencing hearing in another case in Washington, D.C., district court. Both cases were brought on charges lodged by special counsel Robert Mueller in his ongoing probe of Russia’s election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Manafort is expected to serve only 38 more months of the 47-month sentence because of time he has already spent incarcerated. In addition to the sentence, Ellis ordered Manafort to pay a $50,000 fine, the lowest fine provided for by guidelines that recommended a fine between $50,000 and $24 million.

Jason B. Jones  – New Podcaster Investigates the Unsolved Murder of his Own Grandmother.

Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler is the haunting, captivating and very personal story of the host, Jason B. Jones.

Jones said he was introduced to evil at 10 years old when his grandmother, Betty Jones, was gruesomely murdered in a case that would get national attention. Nearly 30 years later, with no active leads, he is opening his own look into the so-called “Labor Day Murders.”

The in-depth podcast launches September 3rd. Listeners will hear interviews with the current lead investigator, family members, journalists and people close to Betty Jones. Jason B. Jones even sits down with the current owner of the house she was murdered in. “Growing up, it was a taboo topic that we didn’t talk about because of the pain and the questions that came along with it. As I became an adult, and grew more curious about my past, who I was and how this traumatic event affected my childhood; I quickly realized there weren’t many answers,” said Jones.

Like other true crime podcasts like Serial and Up and Vanished, Jones hopes he can find real answers for the small town in Mississippi, his family, and himself, “I’m learning not just how she died, but more importantly how she lived.”

Jason B. Jones works in the music industry as Creative Director at Integrity Music based in Nashville, Tennessee and is also creator of the podcast ‘Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler.’

Jason grew up with a love for music that eventually led him to a career in the music industry where he now supports musicians, amplifying their music and message. Over the last 15 years, he has worked closely with countless directors, photographers, writers, etc to create inspiring multi-media marketing from videos, imaging, digital design, branding, etc. Jason has worked alongside artists such as TobyMac, Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith and Kari Jobe, to name a few.

Knock Knock Podcast focuses on the violent unsolved murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler. On Monday, September 3rd 1990, they were gruesomely raped and killed in Starkville, Mississippi in an unsolved case known as the “Labor Day Murders”. Their story received national attention on America’s Most Wanted, artist renderings of the suspect have been made and updated, DNA tests have been run and rerun. But still, the killer has never been found. 27 years later, this case remains cold and unsolved. Throughout this podcast we will dig into the details of this crime, make strides toward uncovering answers, and seek justice for the lives of these victims.
