Revised U.S. Trade Agreement with South Korea

The renegotiated Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) is a substantial improvement over the original deal. The revised agreement can help reduce large, persistent trade deficits within important sectors such as the automotive industry supply chain. For years, the U.S. automotive supply chain faced a number of non-tariff trade barriers that were carefully imposed by the government of South Korea. Whether it was obscure customs requirements, duplicative emissions testing, or burdensome labeling requirements, the net effect was to discourage access to Korea’s consumer market. The administration has wisely addressed these unjustified Korean trade barriers and has negotiated the extension of a truck tariff that will allow Americans to keep making trucks and earning good wages.

Kavanaugh Obstruction is Left's Latest Attempt to Weaponize #MeToo

Once again, the Left is using unsubstantiated charges of sexual misconduct to manipulate the political landscape into one that is more to their liking. It is a testament to Judge Brett Kavanaugh's character that Democrats had to reach all the way back to his juvenile years at an all boy's school to find something they thought they could use. Don't they usually fight against the idea of minors being charged as adults even when the crime is murder? Yet, they're not ashamed of scrutinizing the alleged behavior of a 17-year-old boy if it accomplishes their political mission. [more...]

Let's End Washington's Use-It-or-Lose-It Spending Culture
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of “Operation Drain the Swamp”

Polls taken before President Trump took office showed the public perceived that government wasted about half the money it collected. Congress and the administration can do a lot more to get our fiscal house in order. One common-sense fix that has been neglected is confronting the irrational use-it-or-lose budget practices in Washington. In the private economy, any business that spends less on overhead than budgeted is rewarded. In government, the opposite is true. Agencies that spend less than they received are punished, in their view, with lower budgets. Rather than lock in these savings, agencies engage in end-of-the-fiscal-year spending sprees. If they don’t use it, they’ll lose it. [more...]

Amazon Buys 20,000 New Delivery Vans

Amazon is taking its shipping methods to the next level and this time it means a more direct service for your consumer needs. Amazon has purchased over 20,000 new delivery vans from Mercedes Benz and plans to implement a new strategy in customer service. Instead of allowing the usual carrier services to ship your favorite Amazon purchases, the company will use their own vans to deliver your packages. Amazon consumers can now expect to see an Amazon van dropping off packages to their front door. This initiative puts Amazon in the best position to help small business owners lease vans for deliveries through Amazon at a discount rate. [more...]

Hating Men in a Real Life Handmaid’s Tale

The Handmaid’s Tale cosplay is, like so much of postmodern feminist outrage, a dystopian fantasy in search of a reality. Its imaginary universe, of the book and the show, in which men are innately predatory, validates their conviction that Brett Kavanaugh must be guilty, because he is a conservative white Christian man. And they’re all rapists. Just like the oppressors of Gilead in The Handmaid’s Tale. The Handmaid’s Tale is to postmodern feminists what Birth of a Nation was to white nationalists. Both are fantasies by which the powerful justify their oppression by imagining themselves to be powerless. Wealthy career women pretending that they’re slaves, staring at the ground as an aggressive protest, dressing up like nuns, the Amish or other members of religious communities that they despise, is a costuming that reveals the malicious hypocrisy of the lefty protesters, not of their conservative targets. [more...]

The Problem with Single-Payer? Eventually, You Run Out of Other People’s Money
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Democrats have made a complete government takeover of the healthcare system the linchpin of their pitch to voters in this fall’s elections. Free health care is a potent rallying cry. But eventually, single-payer’s champions will run out of other people’s money. The numbers don’t lie. America can’t afford single-payer health care; and they won’t like the inevitable long waits, rationed care, higher taxes, and shortage of doctors to treat them. [more...]
