Who Killed the TPP?

The TPP is dead. On January 23, 2017, U.S. President Donald J. Trump signed a Presidential memorandum, addressed to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), instructing the acting USTR to begin the process of withdrawing the U.S. from the TPP. Due to requirements spelled out within the 5,544-page document, the ratification process cannot proceed without U.S. participation. What happens next? [more...]

Crista Huff writes extensively about international trade agreements, and about U.S. stock markets. She is also a trade lobbyist, having successfully worked toward preventing a 2016 TPP ratification vote in Congress. [more...]

Protests Further Divide Country

On a day meant to represent the unity of America and the backing of new leadership, January 20th reinforced the stark divide in our country as protesters and anarchists took to the streets during the President’s swearing in ceremony. The demonstrations turned violent with confrontations with police that resulted in over 200 arrests throughout the day. The protesters are protected by their First Amendment right of freedom of speech, but these demonstrations in no way represent the values we hold as Americans. Throwing objects at police, destroying storefronts, vandalizing streets and businesses, and damaging vehicles is no way to exhibit frustration. As we enter a new era of American policy, business and trade, we must adapt to the changing environment. We must always fight for the issues that are important to us, but not with violence, and not in a way that divides us. We need to work together and restart the dialogue to enact change that betters the lives for all Americans. [more...]

The Robot Revolution

President Trump may save thousands of jobs, but such rescues are likely to be temporary. The reason is that American jobs will soon be lost not to foreign countries but to domestic robots. Robots with Artificial Intelligence could replace humans in up to 47 percent of today’s jobs, from hamburger flippers and factory workers to truck drivers, according to a report issued December 20, 2016, by the White House. Many millions of people will be unemployed and in need of money. The government at the same time will lose trillions in revenue from jobless, broke former taxpayers. In my new book with Craig R. Smith, Money, Morality & The Machine: Smith's Law in an Unethical, Over-Governed Age, we predicted that the European Union would turn to strange measures - and in early 2017, they have. The EU, exactly as we warned, moved in January to make robots “electronic persons.” It did this so that all kinds of robots can be made to pay taxes – especially the steep retirement tax – that the robots, which never “retire,” will never receive as retirement benefits. These robot taxes can be used to keep government fat as well as to provide part of a guaranteed “universal income” that all people could receive, whether they worked or not. A test of such “universal income” just got underway with thousands of people in Finland. [more...]

My Dad and President Reagan

My dad was a blue-collar butcher, but he was no ordinary butcher. David Root was a Jewish Republican butcher from Brooklyn who became one of the founding members of the New York state Conservative Party. My dad and his fellow Conservative Party leaders took a huge gamble and endorsed a long-shot for president back in 1980. The political experts said they were delusional; they said an old washed-up, B-movie actor could never be president. They said he was too old. The Conservative Party of New York became the first major organization to endorse Ronald Reagan. Soon after Reagan’s election, my father the blue-collar butcher, opened the mail one day to find a formal invitation to the inauguration of Ronald Reagan. It was his prized possession, his proudest achievement. It was framed and displayed in his living room until the day he died in 1992. Thirty-seven years after my father was invited to President Reagan’s inauguration, his son attended the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump. [more...]

Late-night Comedy Targets President Trump

Some of Hollywood’s most notorious liberal activists appear to be hell-bent on continuing their quest to spread the hate, most notably against the nation’s new president, Donald J. Trump. Late-night comedy shows were, of course, a significant part of the media messaging that sought to shape the electorate, particularly younger voters who routinely obtain political news and information from late-night programming. Interestingly, the mainstream media (MSM) have and continue to methodically lay the groundwork for late-night writers. In a sort of perverse media ritual, a false or exaggerated story is initially disseminated by the MSM so that late-night comedy shows are then able to run with it, ultimately twisting the false narrative into vicious mockery with the ill-intentioned purpose of massaging the public mind. [more...]

Obama’s Legacy, Continued

Director Joel Gilbert revisits his blockbuster film, ‘Dreams from My Real Father’ that debunked President Obama’s official background as a moderate candidate with an inspiring family background. In 2012, Gilbert’s film shocked the public with an alternate personal and political history of Barack Obama in which he presented evidence that Obama’s real biological father was not the Kenyan Obama, but rather the American Communist propagandist and Soviet Agent Frank Marshall Davis. Gilbert further presented evidence that Davis had radicalized Obama during his formative years. Obama had discussed Davis and his influence extensively in his bestselling autobiography, Dreams from My Father, but claimed Davis was only a friend of his grandfather. Gilbert will discuss extensive new research and new information he has developed since the film, including bombshell revelations from Obama’s best friend from high school whom Gilbert befriended. Gilbert will also discuss Obama’s “farewell” speech in which he claimed many “remarkable” accomplishments. [more...]
