Extending Exemptions on 232 Tariffs
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

We strongly encourage the Trump Administration to fully implement crucial Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs rather than extend exemptions for certain countries. We support the Commerce Department determination that surging imports of subsidized steel and aluminum “threaten to impair the national security” of the United States. Extending the exemptions for several countries has spurred price volatility and a flood of imports from foreign producers dumping product as soon as possible before the tariffs become effective. Broad and comprehensive implementation is needed to provide certainty and to meet the goals described by the administration. [more...]

Comey Believes President Hillary Wouldn’t Have Fired Him

Aside from everything else, Comey may have been the single dumbest man to hold the Hoover chair. Axios’ Mike Allen spoke with the former FBI Director and asked him directly if the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate should’ve been charged with a crime. Comey said, “No.” Though if you ask him next Wednesday, that answer may change. Allen asked Comey if he wishes Clinton won. Comey thought for a second and said, “That’s not one I’m gonna answer, I don’t think.” That's an answer... also a double negative. [more...]

Top 10 Cases of Chinese IP Theft

Industrial espionage has been going on for centuries, but experts agree China’s espionage campaign is on a different scale from anything we’ve seen in history. It has been going on at least since the 1990s and there is no sign it is letting up. Targets include an incredibly broad range of U.S. companies, embracing civilian as well as military technology, with a special focus on the telecom and Internet sector. In 2009, National Security Agency Director General Keith Alexander called Chinese IP theft “the greatest transfer of wealth in history.”  He put the value of cyber-theft of U.S. trade secrets and intellectual property (IP) at a stunning $250 billion a year and called it “our future disappearing in front of us.” [more...]

The Russia Collusion Farce

When it comes to President Trump and the question of collusion with Russia, there is indeed a smoking gun. But it’s not the June 2016 meeting that Donald Trump, Jr., along with campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, held in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer. The lawyer, Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, duped Don Jr. into setting up the meeting by claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. In fact, the meeting was a bait and switch. It turned out the lawyer had no meaningful information to offer on Mrs. Clinton. Rather, she wanted to interest the Trump team in a Moscow initiative to allow American families to adopt Russian children. The meeting, which lasted 20 minutes, was the sort any political campaign or media outlet would have agreed to. Read more in my book, The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game. [more...]
