Tariffs are a Necessary Response to China's Intransigence
By Michael Stumo

Beijing has run roughshod over our economic well-being - and there are national security implications to rampant hacking

The talking heads at CNBC are panicked right now about the higher tariffs President Donald Trump just imposed on China. But we’ve heard their alarmism before, along with frightening economic predictions. Why the hysteria about China? The Trump administration just spent months negotiating a seven-chapter trade deal with Beijing. The resulting agreement was intended to address the very trade disputes that compelled the president to take a hard line on China in the first place: intellectual property theft, hacking of trade secrets, forced technology transfer, trade barriers, and currency manipulation.

Democrat Bigots Will Destroy the Country
By David Horowitz

At a graduation ceremony at Liberty University over the weekend, Vice President Mike Pence warned students that it has become “acceptable and even fashionable to ridicule and discriminate against people of faith,” and that they should “be prepared for persecution.” This was a gentle - one might say Christian - way of describing what has become an all-out war on believers. This war which I have described in my book Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America. This war got into high gear in the 1960s with the banning first of prayer and then of any reference to the Christian foundations of American democracy in the public schools. Once atheism became the only constitutionally protected religion, the war on Christianity became a central source of the political divisions that followed. [more...]

How to Enforce Ethics on Unethical Lawmakers
By Lowell Ponte

Democrats, having lost every previous attempt to destroy Trump, now plan more than a year of rigged hearings before not one, not two, but SIX committees in the House of Representatives. Republicans should play tit for tat by creating a special committee or two in the part of Congress that the GOP controls - the U.S. Senate. Their Senate committee(s) could use every tactic that House Democrats are planning - Stalinist "show trials" of the other party, subpoenas for Democrat tax and other personal records going back many years, questioning about the criminal role of the Democratic National Committee colluding with the Russians to invent the fake "Trump Dossier" used to justify wiretapping and spying on Trump and his people - in effect, letting one party weaponize the FBI and other intelligence agencies for use against the other political party. Republicans in these Senate hearings should question whether Democrats can be trusted with security clearances and even seats in Congress... [more...]

Dem Presidential Candidates Compete for Hollywood Cash
By James Hirsen

When it comes to campaign financing of Democrat presidential hopefuls, Hollywood’s ATM is open for business. One after another, Dem candidates have been heading west to make their withdrawals. While there, they typically try to grab a bit of stardust wherever it can be found. Former veep Joe Biden, mayor of South Bend, Indiana Pete Buttigieg, senator from California Kamala Harris, and senator from New Jersey Cory Booker have either already held Left Coast fundraisers or are in the process of scheduling them.

Why Freedom of Speech Should Apply to Google, Facebook and the Internet
By Daniel Greenfield

“But, it’s a private company.” It’s a familiar argument. Bring up the problem of Google, Facebook and Twitter suppressing conservative speech and many conservatives will retort that it’s a free market. The big dot com monopolies created their own companies, didn’t they? And we wouldn’t want government regulation of business. The talking point that Google, Facebook and Twitter are private companies that can discriminate as they please on their private platforms, and that the First Amendment doesn’t apply, is in the air everywhere. But it overlooks two very simple facts. [more...]

U.S. Trade Deficit Edges Up To $50.0B as China Deficit Shrinks to Lowest in Five Years

By Jeff Ferry

The U.S. trade deficit in goods and services edged up in March to $50.0 billion, slightly worse than February’s $49.3 billion. But the big news in today’s report from the Department of Commerce was that the U.S. goods deficit with China has fallen significantly, to just $20.7 billion. This indicates that tariffs on Chinese imports are having a substantial impact on China trade.

The China deficit of $20.7 billion is our smallest deficit since March 2014. Moreover, the improvement has come largely through a reduction in imports. In March, our exports to China were $10.4 billion, $1.9 billion lower than the year-ago March. However, our imports were $31.2 billion in March, $7 billion less than the March year-ago figure, and our lowest monthly China imports level in three years. The sharp reduction in our China imports shows that the tariffs are working. This is clearly visible by looking at last year’s data. Our March 2019 exports to China were equivalent to the monthly rate of exports in 2018, $10 billion a month. But on the import side, the picture is very different. Our 2018 imports from China averaged $44.9 billion a month. So far this year, our imports are averaging just $35 billion a month, and falling each month. [more...]

Why Obama was Most Anti-Christian President

By David Horowitz

Which American president changed the White House Christmas cards from being about Christmas or faith to cards featuring the family dogs and similar non-Christmas related subjects?

Which president decorated the White House Christmas tree with ornaments that included figures such as Mao Zedong and a drag queen?

Which president excluded pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored healthcare summit?

Which president nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican?  And, on and on...

The answer, of course, is President Barack Obama, the most extreme leftwing figure ever to occupy the White House. Obama’s attacks on Christians earned him the title of “America’s Most Biblically Hostile President” from the website Wallbuilders, which listed these incidents. [more...]

Praising Trump's Decision to Increase China Tariffs
By Michael Stumo

We strongly praise the Trump administration’s decision to increase tariff rates on $200 billion worth of imports from China. President Trump had previously delayed a planned tariff increase - scheduled to take effect in January - to allow more time for negotiations with China to proceed. Because Beijing is slow-walking the current trade discussions, however, the president has announced that the tariffs will rise on Friday from 10 percent to a new rate of 25 percent. Additionally, President Trump said that 25 percent tariffs will also be imposed on a further $325 billion worth of imports from China that currently face no tariffs. The tariffs are working and are helping to grow the U.S. economy. To get America moving again, it’s imperative to reclaim our home market from ‘national champion’ companies that receive massive subsidies from China’s central bank. [more...]

The Hypocrisy of the Left
By Lowell Ponte

Could 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' actually be self-hatred by Democrats? Last Friday a liberal Washington Post editorial warned that President Trump's Attorney General William Barr was going to politicize the Department of Justice and use it as a weapon to destroy the Democrats' 2020 presidential candidates. The Post never mentioned that this is precisely what President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic National Committee did to Trump in 2016. They condemn Trump because the soon-to-come tactics they fear from him are a subconscious reflection - or projection - of their own sinister values and tactics.

Democrats Launch Preemptive Strike on Barr
By James Hirsen

The Democratic Party and its willing allies in the mainstream media have a new target in their political sights: Attorney General William Barr who is the latest recipient of the poisonous politics in which Democrats of the extreme partisan kind are engaging. Interestingly, what appears to be lurking in the shadows of the political drama is a kind of raw fear on the part of Democrats who are going on the attack against Attorney General Barr with the goal of destroying the man’s reputation. They are doing so in order to interfere with the efforts of the Department of Justice (DOJ) in unearthing potentially damaging facts relating to the government’s investigation of President Trump.

Mapping San Francisco's Human Waste Challenge
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

San Francisco hosts an estimated homeless population of 7,500 people. Affluent sections of the city have become dangerous with open-air drug use, tens of thousands of discarded needles, and, sadly, human feces. Since 2011, there have been at least 118,352 reported instances of human fecal matter on city streets. New mayor, London Breed, won election by promising to clean things up. However, conditions are the same or worse. Last year, the number of reports spiked to an all-time high at 28,084. In first quarter 2019, the pace continued with 6,676 instances of human waste in the public way. [more...]

Hottest Investing Tips!
By Crista Huff

April brought exciting news to the world of mergers & acquisitions, when Chevron (CVX) offered to buy Anadarko Petroleum (APC) for approximately $33 billion. As the sweaty palms of the CEOs were drying after the handshake agreement, Occidental Petroleum (OXY) surprised the market with a competing offer to buy Anadarko for $38 billion in cash and stock. Suddenly, Anadarko management was forced to consider whether to accept the larger buyout offer from the less financially attractive company, or to accept the smaller buyout offer from the more financially attractive and much larger company. [more...]

What can the Democrats do now? Is impeachment still an option? Why did Trump call Putin and talk about the Mueller report? Why is Joe Biden suddenly surging inside the Democratic race? Is he the candidate Trump should most fear? [more...]

The Scourge of Jew Hatred at UCLA

By David Horowitz

In a stealth campaign to reach students directly, the David Horowitz Freedom Center distributed 1,000 newspapers containing its new report on the rising tide of Jew Hatred and its links to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel on the UCLA campus. Titled “An Epidemic of Jew Hatred on Campus: The Top Ten Neo-Nazi Incidents,” the Freedom Center’s report chronicles horrifying instances of anti-Semitism on prestigious American campuses including UCLA, Columbia University, the University of Minnesota, Tufts University, and the University of Michigan, among others. The report’s introduction stresses the role that the terrorist-funded BDS movement plays in promoting anti-Semitism on campus and draws parallels between BDS and the rhetoric and methods employed by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Domestic Producers Tell Congress 'Hands Off' Section 232 Tariff Authority
By Michael Stumo

More than 50 different organizations have sent a letter to Congress opposing efforts to weaken a part of U.S. trade law known as Section 232. In 2018, the Trump administration imposed Section 232 tariffs against global overcapacity that was decimating America’s steel and aluminum sectors while threatening national security. The letter’s signatories, including individual companies and trade organizations in such diverse sectors as agriculture, textiles, tooling, and plastics, consider Section 232 to be a crucial part of U.S. trade law for all industries. Other countries have national strategies to develop their industries and to target the U.S. consumer market. These predatory strategies can negatively impact our national security. Threats like that can emerge, change, or evolve quickly. Future presidents should maintain the full flexibility, under Section 232, to assess and respond to these national, and even economic, security threats in a timely manner. [more...]

An 8-Year Media Lie About How the Syrian War Started is Finally Exposed
By Daniel Greenfield

The end of the big lie about the origins of the Syrian Civil War began on the Arizona border. Claas Relotius, a German reporter for Der Spiegel, had written a piece about being embedded with a militia patrolling the Arizona border for illegal migrants. Gullible German leftist readers were regaled with tales of the militia, whose leader called Mexicans "bean eaters" and, at the end of the article, opened fire into the night. It was one of a series of Relotius articles delving into Trump country with novelistic accounts of pro-Trump Americans that confirmed all the stereotypes of Der Spiegel’s readers. But the residents depicted in the Minnesota town in which ‘Where They Pray for Trump on Sundays’ is set quickly pointed out that much of the article was factually wrong and that Relotius had never even bothered talking to the people he claimed to have been writing about. And a woman doing media relations for the militia contacted Der Spiegel and informed the magazine that he had never been there. That was the beginning of the end.

Single-Payer Will Fracture Democrats' 2020 Coalition
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Earlier this month, Senator Bernie Sanders released a new version of his plan for "Medicare for All." Four of his competitors for the Democratic presidential nomination - Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Cory Booker - quickly signed on as co-sponsors. They all think Medicare for All is their ticket to the nomination, and ultimately the White House. It's not hard to see why. A recent Reuters survey found that 85 percent of Democrats, and even a slim majority of Republicans, are on board with a single-payer system. But public support for single-payer isn't as solid as it seems. Medicare for All could doom Democrats in the general election - and even fracture the Democratic coalition in 2020 and beyond.

Anti-Semitic Symbolic Warfare
By Dawn Perlmutter

Cartoons, words, images, symbols and gestures that individually seem trivial, collectively reveal a pattern of stealth anti-Semitism. These continual incidents are casually explained as anti-Semitic tropes. The use of the word 'trope' minimizes the threat, sounds like an unintended blunder and sugarcoats the covert agenda. These are not simply anti-Semitic tropes; they are symbolic warfare tactics used in global information operations that target America, Israel, Jews and Trump supporters. These tactics were successfully used by Hitler and subsequently adopted by Islamists. Symbolic language that evokes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories are skillfully being used by Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and sanctioned by democrat apologists to incite hatred against Jews, Israel and President Trump.

Colleges Benefit from the Student Loan Crisis
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

With university endowments in the $billions, why are our kids and taxpayers being saddled with an almost $2 TRILLION debt? While student loans are allowing even state schools to charge $50k a year, don’t rely on House Financial Services Chair #MaxineWaters to solve this crisis. But there are solutions. [more...]
