The Decline of America’s Auto Industry
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

The U.S. auto, parts and components supply chain has been weakened by growing imports, which now account for 48 percent of passenger vehicles purchased in the U.S. The industry must be strong enough, and profitable enough, to support development now and in the future. The decline of our auto industry, including a 22 percent decline in industry employment since 1990, reflects the unfair global market in which many of our competitors use industrial strategy, subsidies and misaligned exchange rates to erode our domestic industry. The U.S. needs a healthy automotive supply chain, including manufacturing, assembly, innovation and skilled workers. [more...]

Disney Stunned as ‘Solo’ Stumbles at the Box Office

The “Star Wars” franchise has been a sure winner for Disney, well worth the $4 billion the studio paid for Lucasfilm in 2012. When a “Star Wars” movie is released, it is nothing short of a spectacular event accompanied by an interstellar performance at the box office, but not this time. Box-office proceeds of the latest “Star Wars” installment, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” has hit Disney executives hard, with a lower than expected three-day opening of $84.7 million and a projected four-day opening of $103 million - all this while the movie carried a production budget of over $250 million. The “Solo” results were 46 percent lower than the previous “Star Wars” release, “Rogue One,” causing Lucasfilm and Disney to reexamine the management of the “Star Wars” asset.

Fact Check - Yes, George Soros was a Nazi Collaborator

Since the media is once again insisting that Soros' Nazi collaboration was a conspiracy theory, here's George is in his own words on ‘60 Minutes.’ Was Soros responsible for his actions at that age? He's certainly responsible for his adult perceptions of them. And he's been quite clear about that. It's not just that he felt no guilt over it. It was, in his own words “the most exciting time of my life.” [more...] NOTE: Roseanne Update from Daniel Greenfield.

The Left’s Ruling Ideas

Below is a review of David Horowitz's new book, “Ruling Ideas," which is the ninth and final volume of The Black Book of the American Left, a multi-volume collection of Horowitz's conservative writings that now stands as the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to define the Left and its agenda. We encourage our readers to visit, which features Horowitz’s introductions to volumes 1-9 of this series, along with their tables of contents, reviews and interviews with the author. [more...]

Bloomberg - “Let’s Tax the Poor”

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of America’s richest billionaires, now wants to heavily tax poor people. Such taxes, says Bloomberg, would be a “good thing” for those already in poverty. Like most self-righteous leftist Progressives, Michael Bloomberg is paternalistically proposing what economists call “Pigovian” taxes, designed not only to enrich government but also to impose social engineering.
