Framework Trade Deal with China
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

The administration promised to fix the China problem. The framework deal reported this weekend only makes it worse. America is becoming a natural resource and tourism exporter to China, putting us in the economic position of a third world colony. China’s predatory capitalism is designed to displace America as the world’s largest and most advanced economic power. The deal announced by Secretary Mnuchin enables, rather than neutralizes, China’s state capitalism strategy. The focus for future negotiations must be to deny the benefits of forced technology transfer and state-planned capitalism that unfairly displace American value-added and advanced manufacturing supply chains. [more...]

The Fourth Amendment is Worth Protecting

The New York Times recently published an extensive article that attempted to shine a positive light on an appallingly scandalous set of facts. However, even with its extravagant spin efforts, the newspaper could not exclude the information that the FBI employed secret counterintelligence tools to spy on the Trump campaign, including the use of a paid confidential informant who sought to extract damaging information from several people associated with the campaign. It is a grave situation when, through the use of counterintelligence powers, a presidential administration targets officials associated with the campaign of the opposition party. The same Obama executive branch engaged in a series of extraordinary actions to step-up government intrusions, including the following... [more...]

Oil Prices Rise Globally

The usual case is that with a weaker American dollar, oil prices drop because it then becomes cheaper for nations using foreign currencies to buy crude oil. However, because of continued turmoil and the coming renewed sanctions (set by the USA pulling out of the Iran deal), crude oil prices in the global marketplace are expected to rise as experts wait to see how such sanctions and political conflicts in oil-rich countries affect the global marketplace. Both European and American oil import prices have risen to almost a whole percent - the highest since November 2014. Experts predict up to 350,000 barrels of Iranian oil could be at risk of disruption if sanctions were re-imposed. [more...]

Eight More Years!

Although President Trump has achieved much, the anti-democratic tactics used against him have sapped his political capital and impaired his constitutional power to fulfill his campaign promises. Our unelected government is defying and spitting in the face of the voters. This is not the way our democracy is supposed to work. Democracy delayed is democracy denied. Arrogant leftist stonewalling, obstruction, and collusion have stolen almost two years of the Trump Administration for which Americans voted. Since the 2016 election, we have learned of Ms. Clinton’s undemocratic secret manipulation of the Democratic Party’s primary process, and of her own and the Democratic National Committee’s collusion through the Russian dossier used to get FISA warrants to spy on Trump activities. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not investigating a crime, as our legal system requires, but pursuing President Trump in hopes of finding a crime, any crime. If and when these anti-democratic leftist furies fail in their effort to undo the 2016 election, voters will rightly ask for justice. How can they reclaim their chosen President’s two stolen years of governing? The U.S. Constitution has no provision to return two years robbed from a President held political hostage by the opposition party. But voters can and should give President Trump a 60-seat Senate majority and strong House majority this November. His last six years can thus be as liberating for Americans as having eight more years to liberate our republic. [more...]

The ADL Betrays Jews to Left-Wing Anti-Semitism

The ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) has been irrelevant for 50 years. Its full organizational name, like that of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), is rarely used because that identity and mission lie in another era. The ADL was founded in 1913 to promote the acceptance of Jews in mainstream society. Its founding charter was concerned with "the caricaturing and defaming of Jews on the stage, in moving pictures." Its original plan was to fight anti-Semitic prejudice by lobbying theater managers and newspaper editors. [more...]

The EU’s Magical Thinking on the Israeli-Arab Conflict

For seven decades, the West’s foreign policy establishment has been trying to call Middle East peace from depths of endless summits and conferences and agreements with ritualistic chants of “land for peace” and “two-state solution.” But all they’ve managed to produce is war, terrorism, and groveling appeasement. Peace hasn’t answered their call. The EU has been particularly feckless, spending billions of Euros paying off the Palestinian Arabs so that they and their fellow jihadists don’t unleash terrorist hordes to disturb la dolce vita of European elites. Fearful of the disgruntled unassimilated Muslim immigrants they have let invade their countries, they have demonized Israel’s “illegal occupation” and “disproportionate use of force,” and winked at growing anti-Semitism and Muslim violence, all in the hopes that they will escape the wrath of Allah’s “martyrs.” Of course, they haven’t, as attested by the blood and gore spattering the streets of Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, and Madrid. Nor have they bought a reprieve from the “Little Terror,” as Norwegian blogger Fjordman calls it, of daily vandalism, rape, assault, and creeping sharia, along with the commandeering and colonization of public spaces and civic institutions. [more...]
