WTO Ruling Against Country of Origin Labeling Causes Spike in Beef Imports
By Michael Stumo, CEO of Coalition for a Prosperous America
A spike in beef imports has occurred, but consumers are unaware because a global tribunal said last December that we can't be told where our food comes from. You may be surprised to hear that U.S. farmers and ranchers are harmed by trade agreements. I can understand if you believe the opposite. The media, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and large agriculture associations (funded by the transnational food import lobby) say that farmers and ranchers want trade deals to export to the 95% of consumers that live outside the U.S. Those soothing words are said to lure you into believing falsehoods.

Taking on Hillary and the GOP, Trump Aims for the Oval Office
Many established Republicans still fail to realize they need to get on board the “Trump train” if they want a Republican in office. Right now, an extremely weak “Stop Trump” campaign is trying rather vaguely, to bring around an alternative. However, the American people have spoken and selected Trump as the candidate they wish to put in the Oval Office. After all, America is a democracy, so the fact that a few disgruntled career politicians want to change the rules seams un-American. For about a year now, a vocal minority have cried, “not Trump,” yet in response, a silent majority responded with votes. Currently, the polls are neck and neck. Hillary is just a few points above Trump, but continued investigation into Hillary will likely tarnish her campaign. Slowly, I believe the GOP will see the light and endorse Trump to the fullest extent. [more...]
The Democrat Wall of Hypocrisy
By James Hirsen
At a commencement address in May, in a scarcely concealed swipe at Trump, Obama urged Rutgers University graduates to reject anyone who wants to build walls on the U.S. border. Evoking Trump’s border wall, Obama said, “The point is, to help ourselves, we’ve got to help others - not pull up the drawbridge and try to keep the world out.” At a separate commencement address in June, First Lady Michelle Obama took aim at Trump’s proposal as well. Bill and Hillary Clinton have been out repeating a mantra of sorts that the U.S. should not be building walls, but bridges. However, those of the liberal persuasion who have for a long time been demonstrating an absurd ease with various positions that are steeped in hypocrisy now appear to be taking things even further. The Democratic National Convention is set to take place in Philadelphia on July 25, 2016, and plans are in the making to secure the gathering with, of all things, a wall. [more...]
Political Correctness Kills 49 More
By Joe Messina
The Orlando killer, had been investigated or interviewed 3 times by the FBI. After many of his coworkers “saw something and said something,” they interviewed him and let him go because there wasn’t enough to hold him. Then his wife divorced him because he started to show “extreme Islamic tendencies” and even started getting violent with her. She said, “he was not a stable person... he beat me.” She reported him. He was again interviewed by the FBI. Then again in 2014. The agent in charge said all interviews were “non-conclusive.” I wonder what that means? Given the reluctance of the current administration to call these things what they are or single out any Middle Easterner or Muslim as a possible terrorist, I wonder if things were overlooked, on purpose?

Another Obama Embarrassment
I hope Americans are waking up after the pathetic Presidential address to the nation about the Orlando Islamic terror attack. Only minutes after Obama was done with his pathetic address to the nation, it was reported that ISIS actually took credit for the attack. That was also undoubtedly known to him when he walked to that podium. Yet with all of those facts at hand... Obama still did not mention the words “Muslim” or “Radical Islam” in the entire address to the nation. No mention was ever made of the religion or background of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. He knew exactly at that moment in time what this attack was. This was 100% ISIS verified before Obama walked to that podium. So he had to admit it was a “terror attack.” Even Obama knew he couldn’t avoid that. [more...]
Was Hamilton America’s First Donald Trump?
By Lowell Ponte
On Sunday, the Broadway stage play “Hamilton” won 11 Tony Awards. How odd that liberals who despise Donald Trump’s alleged authoritarianism are paying $1,000 per seat to see a hip hop and rap glorification of this least-liberal, and in some ways most Trump-like, of America’s founding fathers. Perhaps liberals love the musical “Hamilton” because it depicts this founding father opposed to slave owners such as Jefferson. Truth be told, however, Hamilton did little to end slavery – and may have helped his relatives buy and sell a few slaves. More likely, liberals applaud Hamilton as an advocate of a powerful central government who worked to become part of the ruling elite. They do not even know that Hamilton was eager to restrict immigration and impose trade restrictions. Exactly the same could be said of Donald Trump, who at some not-too-distant future time will doubtless be the central figure of a successful Broadway musical like “Hamilton.” [more...]
What is the Impact of the Orlando Massacre on the Presidential Election?
With the Orlando massacre, the presidential election has just hit an electoral pivot point, if not a tipping point, that might ultimately determine the election outcome. Voters have been impacted dramatically. Voter intensity and voter momentum will likely change effective immediately. With the highly charged Orlando news, terrorism and illegal immigration have moved front and center to the hearts and minds of most voters. This is an issue that plays to Trump’s strengths. Even among the LGBT community (normally considered to be more favorable to Democratic candidates), Trump might jump ahead of Clinton. In his Monday speech, Trump clearly signaled the LGBT community that he intends to protect all Americans and they should favor his tough position on protecting them. Clinton’s anti-gun rhetoric loses when Americans are worried about their safety and when terrorism is their dominant issue of the presidential campaign. [Go here for a complete analysis...]
