Corporate-favored candidate Hillary Clinton and senior socialist Senator Bernie Sanders didn’t make peace after Donald Trump’s 2016 victory, and like the mongoose and the snake, their war never seems to end. The former First Lady of Arkansas blasted the former Vermont high school miler with a brutal video (see below) last week, delivered by John Podesta’s Center for American Progress (CAP). The clip, produced by the center’s affiliate, ThinkProgress, mocked […]
While the public is focused on tariffs and pundits are bemoaning the dangers of a “trade war,” our foreign competitors have the last laugh every day, watching our factories close and our colleges over-qualify future pizza delivery peons. It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, it’s easy to see a solution. Here is one unfair trade example. Germany and the European Union charge a 10% tariff on cars […]
The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) was signed November, last year, by the President with warm enthusiasm from Congress. The promise was a no-tariff zone, free trade, American prosperity, all good for big business and consumers. Unfortunately, our Negotiator-in-Chief was trumped by Mexico. This House of Cards trade deal will create even larger deficits ($566 billion in 2017), and enhance China’s position as the world’s biggest exporter of goods – […]

Their plan is to prevent any current or future tariffs on goods no longer made in the U.S.A. That would include more than 1,600 products listed by the International Trade Commission, an organization dedicated to global progress at the expense of this country.. The Bozos ignore […]
How does a 100% tariff only increase the real price of a pair of prescription $600 eyeglass by only $15?
What does President Donald Trump’s tariffs on $50 billion worth of imports from China actually mean, and how will this affect you? The ministers of mainstream media have received their talking points from the same lobbyists who control Congress, and they are using scare tactics on the public. “A 25% tariff on a product will raise the cost of needed goods by a third, hurting the American consumer,” one son […]
Rich or poor, religious or not, every leader of every Southern state in 1860 opposed tariffs and embraced slavery. In the North, where there was no slavery, everyone favored tariffs to protect both American industry and wage earners from unfair foreign competition. Today, Paul Ryan, Cato Institute or Heritage Foundation invariably promote cutting Social Security, Medicare, Minimum Wage, in fact they despise anything that helps the middle class. On the […]
