Jobs Created by Tariffs

More than 11,100 Good Jobs Created Since February

We have determined that at least 11,100 new jobs have been created since February 1 as a result of the protective tariffs imposed on imported solar panels, washing machines, steel, and aluminum. The finding arises from the initial results of CPA’s “Tariff Job Creation Tracker” (TJCT), which monitors the jobs created as a result of the administration’s tariff actions. The tally is conservative because the numbers include only those positions where companies have publicly announced new or planned job counts. We’ve long recognized the direct connection between manufacturing strength and a vibrant middle class. Recent administrations simply acquiesced to a quarter-century of predatory trade from China. It’s past time to take action, and it’s gratifying to see how quickly manufacturing is coming back to the U.S. now that we are implementing the beginnings of a national trade strategy.

The Untold Story - Tariffs are Driving Job Creation

It’s just six months since the first of the Trump administration’s tariffs went into effect and the job gains are already visible. Our CPA Tariff Job Creation Tracker (TJCT) shows over 11,000 jobs have been created or announced since February 1st  and that includes only cases where companies announced specific job counts. Other companies have also said they intend to add jobs, but we will wait for numbers before adding them to the TJCT. In general, these are good, well-paying jobs, in strong, stable industries. The addition of high-paying jobs to any locality creates upward pressure on wages in the entire region. [more...]

The Golden Age of Trump Bashing May Be Over

Omarosa’s Unhinged may be the fake book that broke the fake publishing camel’s back. Instead of getting a #1 bestseller, Simon and Schuster had to settle for #5. As CNN notes, even Rick Wilson’s anti-Trump rant made it to #2. Pro-Trump books by Jeanine Pirro and Gregg Jarrett got to #1. And that’s despite the millions of dollars in free media coverage lavished on Unhinged. Without the backlash from the White House, Omarosa might not have even gotten to #5. What went wrong with Simon and Schuster’s seven figure investment? [more...]

Mastercard Says it Blacklisted Robert Spencer Because of “Illegal Content”

The Breitbart article is a good summary of what happened between Patreon, MasterCard and me, but the key element is in the update: “A Mastercard spokesperson responded to a Breitbart News request for comment with the following statement. ‘As part of our normal process, we share information about websites that may have illegal content with the acquirer – or merchant’s bank – that connects them to our network to accept card payments. The acquirer would then review the site for compliance with legal requirements and our standards. They would then determine what action to take. In this case, the acquirer advised us that they decided to terminate acceptance.'” “Illegal content?” What illegal content? Which website - Patreon or Jihad Watch? [more...]
