Trump and Trade - At Least Partially Right

Not everything Trump says is wrong, particularly when it comes to trade. Prominent figures in politics and the media are now using the association with Trump to discredit critics of U.S. trade policy. In fact, U.S. trade policies have been harmful to tens of millions of workers. This reality is not reversed because Trump has chosen to make trade policy a major issue in his campaign. There are two main ways in which our trade policies have cost workers' jobs and/or wages. The first is by reducing overall demand in the economy as a result of our large trade deficit. The second is by changing the composition of demand so that there is less demand for manufacturing workers. The impact of both has been substantial in the last two decades. [more...]

Root at the Debate with Red Hot Clinton Revelations

I will be attending the Presidential debate in Las Vegas as a guest of the Trump campaign. I’ll be available from the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV for interviews before and after the debate. Remember, you heard it here first: Hillary’s WikiLeaks revelations are straight from the horse’s mouth... and these leaks are deadly, embarrassing, devastating and - in some cases - criminal. If only the mainstream media would bother to report them. Here are just a few revelations from the past few days that I’m willing to bet you haven’t heard. [more...]

Trump’s Unmatched Fundraising Hauls

Despite the unprecedented onslaught of negativity from the entertainment industry and mainstream news media outlets, Donald Trump hauled in a record breaking $100 million in a single month from individual donors that contributed $200 or less. Never before has a GOP candidate attained such a fundraising feat in a single campaign stroke. The day he held a joint press conference in Mexico with President Enrique Peña Nieto and also gave an immigration policy speech in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump raised $5 million in a single day. Additionally, the Trump campaign vastly exceeded the $5 million mark on September 27, 2016, when the campaign took in $18 million in a single day. [more...]

WikiLeaks Takes on Washington

This past week, WikiLeaks published yet another inside look at Clinton campaign e-mails. The data dump was extensive, with e-mails dating back two elections ago, but the information did not reveal much more than we already know about Clinton. It did, however, shed light on the inner workings of the Democratic party and its corruption. More than anything, these constant publications by WikiLeaks provide an inside view of the undercurrent for the election. Whatever motives people have behind their actions, whether it be business incentives, political gain, or personal greed, you can’t deny that in the end the truth always comes out, and good, honest individuals prevail. I say let’s put better people in Washington and bring down the insiders. [more...]

Clinton’s Campaign Strategy is Failing

In the past, personally attacking a candidate generally boosted an opponent in the minds of voters. But, it’s not working that way for Clinton because of her high unfavorable numbers. It’s generally acknowledged that Clinton is not a good campaigner. Clinton lacks charisma and typically doesn’t connect much with voters; but it’s also true that Clinton does not appear to be good at formulating an effective campaign strategy. Her voter intensity is very low for many reasons. To boost her voter intensity and to enhance her voter momentum, Clinton should be making the case for why she would be a good president and why her vision and policies would be better for America. That simply does not come across in the few public appearances that she makes. Bottom line: Clinton is squandering the last few weeks of this campaign with personal attacks against Trump. [more...]

Can Trump Still Win - Or Is He Out of Time?

With three weeks to go – and early voting underway – where does the race stand? How badly is Trump damaged by the Access Hollywood video and the multiple women charging that he groped them? Is the mainstream media downplaying the Wikileaks information? Has the media become an adjunct of the Hillary campaign? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS – live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening – at 7:30 PM ET. [more...]

Hillary Doubles Down on Trade Prosecutor Lie

Hillary Clinton lied again, about appointing the Special Prosecutor for trade. No President has that power and she knows it.  She actually said very little about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement during the recent debates. She did reference NAFTA, general economic topics, and Chinese illegal dumping of steel. Her statements are significantly problematic, because Clinton is well-aware that a new “trade prosecutor” cannot be interjected into existing trade agreements, nor into the TPP. That’s because each existing trade agreement has previously agreed-upon courses of action for trade grievances. [more...]

Liberals are Premature Prognosticators

Did you watch the media over the weekend? They were gloating. They thought the race was over. They thought Trump was finished. Finito. History. Did you listen to the political experts? They too were burying Trump. Did you watch the career politicians? Even Republican politicians raced away from Trump. They were like rats deserting a sinking Trump ship. Did you hear the many calls for Trump to resign over his comments in a secretly recorded video from 11 years ago? And then there were the phone calls: I fielded dozens of gloating calls from my liberal friends; they all believed Trump was finished. They taunted me. They were congratulating their candidate Hillary as if she had already won. All of Trump’s critics and doubters were practicing what I call “premature prognostication.” [more...]

Forget the Polls, the Media, the Elite - It Will Be President Trump

At precisely 12 noon on January 20th, 2017, President Trump will be sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States of America. The historic and critical presidential election of 2016 will officially come to an end after a hard fought and tough victory over both the establishment Republican Party, the establishment Democratic Party, the no longer mainstream media, and countless polls proclaiming the loser would win. The elite, the media, and the polling experts will be in shock the day after Election Day. They will be in denial on Inauguration Day. They will lament their loss of The White House for years to come. [more...]

Social Media Involvement Hits Record Highs in Second Prez Debate

Typically, the second debate in a presidential campaign fails to draw a bigger television audience than the initial one, and this debate was apparently no exception. Not so in the social media universe. The second presidential debate was the most-tweeted political debate in the 10 years of Twitter’s existence, with more than 17 million debate-related tweets being sent. Trump had the lion’s share of Twitter talk with 64 percent of the conversation. In contrast, Hillary had 36 percent of the conversation. [more...]

Trump Outperforms in Second Presidential Debate

Despite his weekend setback, Trump’s performance in the intense second presidential debate bested all expectations and he reassured his base that he’s not going anywhere. The first 30 minutes of the event put it all out on the table: Trump apologized for the comments he made years ago, pivoted to aggressively criticizing the Clintons, their abuses of women and the law, Hillary’s 30 years of achieving nothing as a politician, and he remained on the offensive for much of the debate. He stuck to the messages that appeal to his supporters and certainly outdueled Hillary. She struggled at times defending herself and constantly asked viewers to follow the fact-checker on her Website in an attempt to shift the focus away from her imperfections. It was a very strong performance for Trump who needed a show of force to stop the bleeding in his campaign. Republicans should feel good about his challenge for the White House - he’s not going down without a fight. [more...]

Bill Clinton is Not Running

This week I have one agreement with the far Left. All this conversation about Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades is not relevant because Bill is not running... well, that’s kinda-sorta correct. This is where I say the Democrats define, own and live hypocrisy. Donald Trump makes lewd comments on what he would like to do to the beautiful women he sees or comes in contact with. The Left is outraged. How dare he speak about women like that?! How dare he apologize and expect us to believe him! They go on to say he should resign, step down, make a sacrifice to the gods, and more! There’s only one word for all that so-called outrage... “hypocrites!” Democrats will accept sexual abuse, rape culture and objectification of women by their own as normal behavior, but anyone else is demonized! Proof? [more...]

Obama’s Syria Catastrophe

How a cascading series of blunders by the Obama administration helped lead to the present humanitarian crisis

The humanitarian situation in Syria worsens day by day. The Assad regime and Russia are carrying out intense lethal bombings over the rebel-held eastern Aleppo, where about 250,000 people are effectively trapped under siege by Syrian military forces. They claim they are targeting terrorists, not civilians. The United States and its allies retort that the savage aerial bombing campaign against civilian targets such as hospitals and shelters has nothing to do with counter-terrorism. The United Nations Security Council has met numerous times to address the tragedy, to no avail. This past weekend’s emergency session of the Security Council was no exception. [more...]

Trump’s Taxes - The Old Gray Lady is a Scam Artist

The Old Gray Lady (the New York Times, not Hillary Clinton) just attacked Donald Trump for supposedly paying no income taxes. The New York Times knows exactly what it’s doing. It’s called fraud. It’s also called bait and switch. They are trying to distract you from the real crimes comm10-4-16 itted by Hillary Clinton. They know Clinton is a criminal. They know she and her scheming husband Bill have committed terrible crimes against the American people. They know the Clinton Foundation is a charity scam. They know almost none of the money collected ever goes to charity. Any one of us running a charity scam like this would be in prison. [more...]

Election Update

Clinton has moved up in most polls and Trump has declined in these same polls in the last week or so. However, these poll results are typically in (or close to) the margin of error. Why did the polls change this much? Clinton went on the offense and effectively attacked Trump on personal matters, namely, the Alicia Machado issue and Trump’s taxes. These types of attacks are fairly standard and to be expected. Trump spent too much time on the defense - never a good strategy. [See my Ten Laws for Winning Presidential Elections and specifically, Law 9 - The Law of the Dominant Offense.] Overall, voter momentum still is going to Trump, but at a slower pace. Trump needs to stop this trend now or face losing the election. I have said many times that this election is Trump’s election to lose. [more...]

The End of the Web as We Know It

At a time in history when the public is highly skeptical of mainstream news media reporting, the Web, via video streaming and by other means, has been delivering limitless quantities of news and information from various ideological, political, and cultural perspectives. Especially appealing to digital participants is the fact that entertainment immersion, idea exchange, and social interaction have mostly been able to be engaged in on the Web free from the constraints of governmental interference, bureaucratic regulations, and agenda-laden practices. With this in mind, it is puzzling and more than a tad disturbing that the Obama administration would consider giving away U.S. control over a significant component of the Internet’s governance. Yet this is exactly what has happened. [more...]

Anheuser Busch InBev Takeover of the World’s Beer

Last week shareholders of the world’s second largest brewer, SABMiller, approved a $100 billion takeover by Anheuser-Busch InBev (A-B InBev).  Both companies are internationally recognized for brands such as Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois, Miller Genuine Draft, Peroni, Fosters, Beck’s, Hoegaarden, and Leffe - just to name a few of the more than 350 combined. With the shareholder approval, this corporate merger will go down as one of the largest in history. The merged company will control 27 percent of the global beer market and hold the position of largest brewer in the world. [more...]

Dems Who Didn’t Pay Their Taxes

The Dems are all excited that Trump used his knowledge of the broken tax system to take LEGAL advantage of the tax code for his business: He claimed he lost over $900 million in 1995. On the other side of the aisle, Rev. Al Sharpton owes millions in back taxes but is still not in prison; George Soros owes over $7 billion - no noise about that; former Treasury Secretary Tim Geitner; Congressman Charles Rangel (he belonged to the committee that WROTE tax laws); Senator Claire McCaskill, one of the richest members of Congress; and Tom Daschle, the Dems’ choice for HHS Secretary who had to drop out when the media - not the mainstream media - pointed out he didn’t, and wouldn’t, pay the taxes he owed. In fact, over 40 Obama staffers owe close to $1 million in back taxes. The Dems mentioned above chose NOT to pay what they owed and even failed to report items they were supposed to disclose. Mr. Trump declared all and took the proper legal deductions. BIG difference. [more...]

Did the Debate Alter the Momentum of the Race?

Did the first presidential debate alter the race? Does either candidate now have momentum? How does the electoral map look now? Has the Trump campaign overreacted to the Monday debate? Has Hillary gloated or capitalized on the aftermath? Does the Miss Universe incident spell trouble for Trump? The Cuban revelations? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS – live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening – at 7:30 PM ET. [more...]

Hillary Lied About TPP

Hillary Clinton called TPP “the gold standard.” The most focused statement Clinton made about the TPP was as follows: "I’m going to have a special prosecutor. We’re going to enforce the trade deals we have, and we’re going to hold people accountable." That statement is absurd. First, trade deals are generally enforced by taking grievances to the World Trade Organization and/or the global courts, via the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism. These contentious situations often take years to be resolved. And while the aggrieved parties await resolutions, American industry suffers. For example, the U.S. steel industry's production fell 27% in 2015, largely due to currency manipulation and illegal dumping on the part of Asian nations, especially China. If Clinton were going to appoint a special prosecutor - and we're assuming here that such a person would actually have the power to make a dent in trade problems - why didn't she influence the appointment of such a person at any point during the last 30 years? [more...]

Beef and Cattle Imports Set Record Under Ag Secretary Vilsack

Cattle, beef and beef product imports have nearly doubled (from an average $3.05 billion per year to $6.04 billion per year) under the Vilsack Agriculture Department in relation to the Clinton years. The imports have increased by 33% in relation to the George W. Bush years ($4.5 billion per year average). [more...]

New Employees Are Changing the Workplace

We all knew the day would come when baby boomers and gen X-ers usher a new generation into the workplace. The oldest members of Generation Z, a population born in the mid-to-late-1990s through 2010, have just entered the workforce with all new perspectives and expectations. They follow in the footsteps of their older siblings and counterparts, the millennials, who share similar lifestyles but also remember the days of the VHS and a world without wireless technology. Millennials are now taking on management positions and it appears the workplace we are accustomed to is now at the base of a mountain of change. [more...]

FBI Warns of “Terrorist Diaspora” of Isis Migrants to West

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies worry that a surge of violent extremists will eventually move from ISIS-controlled areas in Syria and Iraq into Western nations with the aim of committing terrorist attacks, FBI Director James Comey told Congress on Tuesday. "The caliphate will be crushed," but hundreds of people will remain and become part of a "terrorist diaspora" in the next two to five years. "When ISIS is reduced to an insurgency, those people will try to come to Western Europe and here," Comey said in testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. [more...]

No Safe Spaces for the ANTI-Safe Spacers

The Left always talks a good game of equality but they have yet to prove it. Whether it has to do with equal pay for women working for the Democrat party (the audit of salaries in Nancy Pelosi’s office showed she pays her female staff 29% less than their male counterparts) or fighting against racism (as was evidenced in the many e-mails released from the DNC dealing with the “Taco Bowl Voters”) or even religious rights (also evidenced by the DNC e-mail leak planning to use the fact that Bernie Sanders might be an atheist against him in the south). These facts and many more show just how the Left deals with social justice. [more...

Ten Points Trump Needs to Make Tonight

These are the 10 points Donald Trump must make tonight in the first presidential debate:

1) That none of Hillary's name-calling is true. By his answers and demeanor show that he is not: sexist, racist, deplorable, reckless, unpredictable, buffoon, homophobe, Islamaphobe. Once he shows he is a reasonable person, all of Hillary's negative ads go away. [more...]

How Can Trump Win the First Presidential Debate?

Trump Needs to Connect Heart-to-Heart with the American People During the Presidential Debate. Many observers criticize Clinton for being cold and stiff. She has been seen as aloof, uncomfortable, angry, and recently, even manic in public appearances. All of this on top of the criticisms for looking tired and weak. Some analysts think she doesn’t want to have to campaign at all, having a certain sense of entitlement to being the next president. (It’s her turn, finally.) Trump campaigns with a style that is in sharp contrast to Clinton in many ways. For Trump to deal Clinton a clear defeat, he needs to show his warm side and connect with the American people, just as Reagan did in 1980. Here are some things to look for... [more...]

The Silent Trumpers are Coming Out

I have said this for a long time now, that there are millions of Trump voters who have “stayed in the closet” and not spoken out in their intention to vote for him.  Well, all of this has changed and I believe that it is largely due to Hillary Clinton’s faux pas (calling half of his supporters a “basket of deplorables”).  Little did she know that that arrogant, demeaning comment in front of her millionaire donors who yucked it up with her would bring millions of formerly silent voters to speak up and own their vote. [more...]

Hollywood Celebrities Go All in for Hillary

In an unprecedented attempt to help get their candidate elected to the nation’s highest post, Hollywood is pulling out all the stops to assist Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to win the presidency. Many of the Tinseltown residents with sizeable influence are busy supplying “in kind” contributions to the Hillary campaign. Playing their typical roles in the quadrennial Academy Award show of politics, they have been making personal donations, rounding up gobs of cash at left-leaning fundraisers, rushing stages to publicly endorse, appearing at campaign-stop junkets, and generally lobbing stink bombs at any political, entertainment, media, business, or high-profile individual or organization that dare express a semblance of objectivity or opposition. [more...]

Donald Wins the Presidency if He Talks Economy Tonight

The American people know what they're hearing from Obama, Hillary and the media is a lie. Trump must explain how he’s created prosperity and jobs his entire life. He is a walking economy. He needs to explain how he will turn it around for one specific group of Americans - those who want work, not welfare. He’ll create an economy that works for working people, not welfare addicts. He cares about the people who pay the taxes, who contribute into the system. It's time we had a President who turns the tables.  The system should be tilted in favor of the taxpayers, not the freeloaders. He needs to tell the American people that he is the first president on the side of working men and women - the middle class, small business, not big business - the taxpayers. [more...]

Will Anyone Win - or Lose - the Crucial First Debate?

Tonight’s debate will be watched by more than 100 million Americans. Who will win? What are Hillary’s and Trump’s strategies, strengths and weaknesses? Will the race be altered by this 90-minute event? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS – live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening – at 7:30 PM ET. [more...]

The Breakup of Jolie & Pitt

The business and legal ramifications of the pending divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are enormous. Case in point: It was not long ago that public allegations against Johnny Depp, related to his breakup, caused the box-office numbers of his most recent movie to sink. Brad and Angelina reportedly have a pre-nup with a highly unusual provision in it that will dramatically affect the outcome of their legal proceedings. Ironically, it appears that Angelina's marriage to Brad is ending in much the same way as Jennifer Aniston's did. [more...]

Hillary Sick About Coming E-mail Debacle

What’s making Hillary so sick? What’s shutting down her body? The stress of what she knows is coming. Hillary knows what’s in those e-mails she deleted. It’s enough to ruin her career and destroy her presidential campaign. It’s like a ticking time bomb. Stress is eating away at her. The weight of the world is on Hillary’s shoulders. That’s precisely why Hillary deleted those e-mails. Does she think we were all born yesterday? Those e-mails she deleted had nothing to do with “personal issues;” they had everything to do with the Clinton Foundation. That’s why we now know she deleted them after she found out the FBI was demanding she turn them over. Hillary destroyed evidence that she and her husband extracted big bucks from foreign governments and foreign companies in return for favors from the State Department. [more...]

Deport the Rahami Family

It’s time to send Muslim terrorists a message. The Rahami family came to America from Afghanistan as refugees. They made life miserable for their neighbors. When the police tried to bring some order, they cried Islamophobia. Two of the Rahamis have posted in support of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terror groups on social media. The third actually built and planted bombs to kill Americans. He terrorized two states, tried to kill and maim countless Americans and then shot it out with police. The media, eager for a story of redemption, has widely broadcast the claim that Mohammed Rahami, Ahmad’s father, told the FBI that he was a terrorist. But that was years ago. And Mohammed didn’t turn in his son because there was a terror plot, but because he attacked family members. This wasn’t Mohammed Rahami being a good citizen. It was a dysfunctional oversized family of Muslim refugees causing problems for local law enforcement over their own internal disputes. Ahmad stabbed his brother in the leg with a knife. His father told the FBI that Ahmad was a terrorist. Then he recanted the accusation and said that he had made it out of anger. This wasn’t patriotism. It wasn’t helpful. It was selfish abuse of the system. [more...]

‘No Good Deed Goes Unpunished,’ Trade Official Says of Scrutiny of His Luxury Travel

Top Senate Republicans are demanding that Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker explain how the luxurious travel habits of her top trade deputy escaped her notice and whether she has examined the expenses of additional agency employees. The questions from John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, come in response to an investigation by the Commerce Department watchdog. It found that a high-level political appointee identified by government sources as Stefan Selig, the Commerce undersecretary for international trade for more than two years, stayed in four-star hotels as he traveled around the world promoting U.S. industry and spent $50,000 to renovate his office in Washington.
