Trade Agreement Between the U.S., Mexico and Canada

We congratulate the administration on reaching this agreement with Mexico and Canada. There are lots of improvements compared to the original trade agreement signed in 1994. We’re happy to see improved rules-of-origin provisions, and we believe the overall deal will lead to less offshoring of domestic production. I believe that improved rules of origin will benefit America’s auto industry. However, I am disappointed not to see new country-of-origin labeling (COOL) requirements for beef and pork products. While we’ll be studying the provisions regarding currency devaluation in the agreement, America still faces trade impediments due to an overvalued U.S. dollar. A continuing influx of foreign capital purchasing dollar assets consistently pushes the U.S. dollar above its competitive price. A Market Access Charge (MAC) is needed to moderate the excessive foreign capital inflows. [more...]

Democrats’ Emotional Manipulation of Abuse Survivors is Anti-Therapeutic
By Karen Kataline, Talk Radio Host & Political Commentator

In the travesty of the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh, the privacy of their star witness was breached (a serious boundary violation) and her attorneys apparently didn’t tell her that she could have given her testimony confidentially and at any location she chose. Those details made it painfully obvious that Democrats preferred, and likely planned the political theater of a public lynching. Their appalling slash-and-burn tactics have been deeply destructive to an already divided nation and their cold, indifference to that fact has been on display for all to see. [more...]

China Tries to Whitewash Aggressive Trade Practices

Last week, China’s State Council, effectively the Cabinet of the Chinese government, issued a “White Paper” on trade, to argue its case in front of the world that China is playing by the rules of free trade and the current trade dispute is all the fault of the U.S. The 71-page report said little that was new. The report had two main focuses. The first was to argue that China has been playing by the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules and is a free trader. The second was that China does not engage in intellectual property theft or forced technology transfer. [more...]

The Clinton Sexual Predator Who Made Murphy Brown Happen

The first episode of the Murphy Brown revival featured two guest stars, one who appeared on stage, Hillary Clinton, and one offstage, an old Clinton pal and accused sexual predator, Les Moonves. The only reason that the Murphy Brown revival, with its doddering cast creakily aiming cheap shots at Trump and fetid kisses at Clinton, exists is former CBS CEO and chairman, Les Moonves. It was a revival that no one asked for, but Moonves has allegedly never been shy about exposing himself to women and spending CBS cash to prop up the Clintons. Moonves approved the Murphy Brown revival in two days. [more...]

U.K.'s Healthcare Horror Stories Ought to Curb Dems' Enthusiasm for Single-Payer
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

The United Kingdom's National Health Service, which celebrated its 70th anniversary on July 5, is imploding. Vacancies for doctor and nurse positions have reached all-time highs. Patients are facing interminable waits for care as a result. Yet enthusiasm for government-run, single-payer health care continues to build in the United States. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that 70 percent of Americans now support ‘Medicare for All.’ Virtually all the major candidates for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 have come out in favor of banning private insurance coverage and implementing a single-payer system instead. One look across the Atlantic, to the disaster unfolding in the UK’s government-run healthcare system, ought to curb that enthusiasm. [more...]

Does Harvard Still Hate America?

Forty years ago, my first book, “Harvard Hates America,” was published. I was 25 years old, had graduated from Harvard College and was in my second year at Harvard Business School. The book caused a firestorm, more for the title than the substance. (Then, as now, few people bothered to read a book before criticizing it, or they reviewed the author more than the book itself.) The message of “Harvard Hates America” was that I encountered at Harvard a sense of inbred superiority where many people - teachers, administrators and students - thought they were smarter and therefore better than “regular” American people. These people were condescending and often demeaning in their views of traditional Main Street Americans. The thinking was, “I am so damn smart that I am here at Harvard while most Americans can’t hold a candle to my brains.” [more...]
