Democrats Try “Gerrymandering” Elections by Age and Ethnicity

In 1812, Massachusetts Governor Elbridge Gerry tried rigging elections by redrawing district boundaries so that his Democratic-Republican Party (the forerunner of today’s Democratic Party) would win more seats. One such district was shaped like a salamander, which critics called a “Gerrymander.” The Democrats ever since have used trickery to win. Pennsylvania Supreme Court judges, all Democrats, have replaced the legislature’s power to draw congressional districts. In 2000, Democrats tried to throw out overseas ballots of Florida soldiers, and the far left Center for American Progress this February proposed making it harder for Americans in uniform to vote overseas, because soldiers tend to vote as conservatives. In 2016, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe issued an executive order giving votes to more than 100,000 felons, who vote up to 88 percent Democratic. [more...]

The Weinstein Company on Track to File for Bankruptcy

Following the Harvey Weinstein allegations, the company began to see a backlash in its business operations. Many business partners cut ties with the studio and new business opportunities were cut off. Fearing the end of the studio, executives sought a buyer that would keep the doors open and protect their employees. A group of investors, led by Maria Contreras-Sweet, the former head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, saw this as an opportunity to start a movie studio that was headed by women. However, a letter from the Board of Directors of the Weinstein Company stated that the buyers were unwilling to provide interim financing while the deal was being finalized. As a result, the company is on track to filing for bankruptcy. The deal hit its major snag a few weeks ago when New York’s Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, filed a suit against the company and Weinstein. [more...]

Trump Rightly Puts Foot Down on Steel Cheating

In the world of international trade, countries like China continually use their own version of “steroids” to gain an advantage. Trade cheating has been particularly evident in the global steel market, with overseas competitors pushing the U.S. steel industry to the brink of collapse. Thankfully, President Trump is willing to strongly confront such cheating, as evidenced by his decision to impose tariffs on “dumped” imports of both steel and aluminum. The president’s announcement is particularly commendable since it takes a broad approach to global trade. [more...]

Make Florida Drivers Great Again

The much vaunted self-driving car has a problem; it doesn’t drive very well and often suffers from poor judgment. Whether it’s a Tesla, Google Car, Mercedes or any other number of products attempting to dominate the American Highway, they just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. People have been killed or injured in while proving out these technological marvels. However, there’s an easy way to speed up the research and development process, designate the entire state of Florida as a self-driving car testing site. Florida has earned the distinction of the nation’s worst drivers. With this kind of record, the state must become the epicenter of self-driving vehicle technology development. This designation will provide many benefits. [more...]

Why We Need Tariffs on Steel

Are we going to defend the U.S. steel industry from the decline caused by the growth of uneconomic foreign competition? Or, are we going to allow the industry to fade away and become dependent on other countries for this ubiquitous product, vital to our military and civilian economy? We believe the answer has to be an effort in favor of defending America’s steel industry. Too much is at stake. America’s national security depends on a reliable supply of steel. America’s infrastructure, much of it urgently in need of renewal, depends on steel. Great American industries, including automobiles, aerospace, and many others, depend on a reliable supply of high-quality, low-cost steel. Thousands of jobs also depend on the steel industry. [more...]

Huckabee Withdraws from the Board after Haters Intimidate the CMA

Left-wing hatred, in of all places Nashville, has just politicized a country music institution. Rather than learn a lesson from the NFL and Hollywood, a small but highly vocal group of people in Music City has managed to pressure the Country Music Association (CMA) into having former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee withdraw as a board member from the group’s educational arm, the CMA Foundation. Last week, the CMA announced two new members of the board of this charitable foundation, Huckabee and singer Chris Young. Following the announcement, the CMA was the recipient of a hate-filled backlash over its choice of Huckabee because of the former governor’s political and religious views and solid support of President Donald Trump, as well as the fact that he is the proud father of President Trump’s current press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
