Reward for information regarding Seth Rich

One America News Network (OAN) is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in former DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder case.

The Herring Networks, Inc. media company OAN joins a number of individuals and groups that are willing to pay for information that solves the July 10, 2016, killing of Mr. Rich. The election-season murder continues to spark conspiracy theories based on the suggestion that Mr. Rich provided DNC data to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

“One America News believes solving this case — and bringing Rich’s murderer to justice — is essential to exposing the truth for the American people,” OAN’s Greta Wall reported Monday. “We are offering a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in the case. If you have any information, please email us at”

Others offering rewards include the Washington, D.C. Police Department ($25,000); WikiLeaks ($20,000); and Republican strategist Jack Burkman ($130,000).

Mexico is more affordable than ever!!!

More pesos for your dollar

More pesos for your dollar

More pesos for your dollar!

In the last three months, the Mexican Peso has lost 37% of its value against the U.S. Dollar.

Let me rephrase that – in the last three months the dollar gets you 37% more pesos.

That means, if you have dollars, everything costs 37% less in Mexico. Free money!

Seems it has to do with the decline in the price of oil, which provides nearly 40% of the Mexican government’s revenue.

In addition, the US recession has reduced the demand for Mexican products. Even with the devalued peso making Mexican exports relatively cheaper, the U.S. consumer isn’t going to be buying like they have in the past. In the states the binge is pretty much over.

This slide of the peso opens up a lot of opportunities for Americans. First off, it makes your holiday in Mexico a good deal cheaper.

Secondly, of you are looking for a new home, Mexico can greatly reduce your cost of living. One word of caution, however, is that, wherever you go, always pay in pesos. If you sign up for tour with a U.S. operator, you will be paying in dollars – and the tour operator will be reaping the benefit of the devalued peso.

Let’s say you rent a house in Mexico. A typical price for three to four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two car garage would be 5,500 pesos a month. Several month’s ago, you would have been paying the equivalent $550 a month; today you are only paying the equivalent of $346 a month.

If you want a great vacation, or, more importantly, if you are out of your house, and living in a trailer, or with relatives, or worse, Mexico is a great bargain. In the U.S., you couldn’t rent a decent room for $346 a month.

But isn’t Mexico dangerous? Maybe we should ask, isn’t the U.S. dangerous?  Contrary to what the media would have us believe, Mexico is actually safer than the U.S. According to UN statistics, you’re 3 times more likely to be a victim of crime in the U.S. than you are in Mexico.

According to FBI statistics the murder rate (per 100,000 people) in Baltimore is 43.3; in Washington DC it is 29.1; and in Detroit 47.3.

In Mexico the murder rate is less than a third of those figures – it is only about 13 per 100,000 people.
