Courting Female Votes

With President Donald Trump’s approval rising in recent polls, and with Democrat prospects for the November elections sinking, it is obvious why the Leftist media is suddenly trying to polarize America’s largest bloc of voters – women. Last Sunday, ABC’s “This Week” mobilized a hate fest condemning the President and Chief of Staff General John Kelly for not acting instantly to fire White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter, accused of domestic violence by two former wives. Despite the current scandal, one of Porter’s ex-wives days ago told the U.K. Daily Mail: “I don’t want to be married to him, but I definitely want him in the White House and the position he is in. I think his integrity and ability to do his job is impeccable.” [more...]

Trump Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure

At $1.5 trillion, President Trump’s infrastructure plan is HUGE. It’s a 10-year investment program that is a federal, state, local, and private partnership that will likely change America for the better over the next decade. Trump wants to boost investment in American infrastructure. He also wants to streamline the process of getting permits for new projects and strengthen rural America. Plus, he wants to modernize our workforce. Without a doubt, President Trump’s plan will change the look and feel of America’s infrastructure: Airports, roads, bridges and power lines will all see profound change and improvements. In some cases, President Trump’s plan will even impact its ownership. [more...]

Another Way NAFTA Encourages U.S. Firms to Ship Jobs Overseas
It's called 'mandatory arbitration' and is a huge incentive for big corporations to take paychecks to foreign countries

An ironic aspect of the #MeToo movement is the revelation that mandatory arbitration clauses in women’s employment contracts have sometimes helped to keep sexual harassment claims secret. But in our daily lives, we all “agree” to similar mandatory arbitration clauses when downloading software, for example, or accepting a new credit card. Big business forces us to “choose” arbitration rather than public courts to resolve disputes because they say arbitration is less expensive and more efficient. On a larger scale, international trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) contain similar “mandatory arbitration clauses” that allow companies to sue foreign governments for changing rules that interfere with their future profit expectations.

NOW Feminist Defends Macy’s “Empowering” Hijab
By Tudor Dixon, CEO of Lumen Student News providing unbiased news to America’s middle and high school students

Our young people are being bombarded with images of the American flag-style hijab worn by many during the recent women’s march and feminists are screaming “empowerment” at the top of their lungs. Sonia Ossorio, the president of The National Organization of Women of New York, touted a new line of oppressive garments Macy’s will be rolling out soon during an interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson. Watch the mind-bending interview. [more...]

Uma’s Quentin Tarantino Story

Film director Quentin Tarantino has come under fire in the wake of Uma Thurman’s recent revelations to the New York Times that she was treated abysmally on the set of her star vehicle, “Kill Bill.” Ever since the predatory behavior of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein went public, Thurman has been haunted by her own arduous encounters with Weinstein. In the Times article, though, Thurman emotionally recounts the painful injuries she suffered due to an on-set accident that she claims was covered up by Weinstein and others associated with the movie. The actress also reveals that she was spit on and choked by Tarantino during the filming. [more...]

2017 Trade Deficit Holds Back GDP Growth

The U.S. trade deficit last year surged 12.1%, rising at three times the rate of nominal GDP growth, hampering U.S. economic performance, employment levels, and incomes. The Department of Commerce reported last week that the U.S. trade deficit in goods and services came in at $566.0 billion, an increase of $61.2 billion over 2016. The trade deficit lowered U.S. GDP by 2.9% in 2017, as compared to 2.7% in 2016. All the other major components of GDP -consumption, investment, and government spending - rose, leaving the trade deficit as the only negative force. [more...]
