Before we jump into exciting Beverly Hills Times updates, I want to congratulate Congressman Ron Paul for winning the Conservative Political Action Conference. Congressman Ron Paul has been a monthly Beverly Hills Times contributor for the last couple of years and we appreciate the effort he puts into sharing his opinions with our readers. The […]

Now It’s WikiLeaks International Intrigue, High Level Corruption, Spying, Lying, Leaking Top Secret Documents, Government and Big Business Coverups— BUT IS THE REAL STORY… First Amendment Rights?

Instead of stating my opinion, I decided to briefly identify what seems to have been determined as main parties and perspectives involved—according to what we read and know. Certainly, there stands other significant information that needs to be explored as it relates to WikiLeaks releasing diplomatic cables. But since there is always more than meets […]

It was 1998 when Bill Clinton pounded his hand on his desk, pointed at the camera and in the most stern voice he could muster, told the American people, “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Of course, whether Bill Clinton is a liar or not “depends on what the meaning of […]

We are at the center of the action when it comes to all things entertainment. After all, celebrities from across the globe choose to call Beverly Hills home, so it’s only right that we embrace […]

Let’s compare protectionism in Beverly Hills with protectionism in the United States. Protectionism is a termused to label specific economic policies or doctrines that a government adopts to ‘protect’ workers and businesses in its territory. Protectionism directly influences a free market by providing incentives for citizens and businesses to purchase goods from sources that more positively effect its economy. In our case it’s protecting Beverly Hills […]
