Why China is Losing the Trade War
By Jeff Ferry

I believe U.S. tariffs are working and China is losing the so-called “trade war,” which is not a war at all but simply a battle to enable the U.S. economy to stand once again on its own two feet. There is an emerging consensus in the U.S. that China’s exploitative behavior towards other nations and its manipulation and outright theft of technology from western companies can simply no longer be tolerated. This will frustrate President Xi’s plan, which has always been to spin out talks with the Trump administration for as long as possible in the hope that Trump would be succeeded by a more emollient president. But that is looking increasingly unlikely. Whoever succeeds Donald Trump will find no letup in the pressure to make America safe from the national security and economic threats of China. [more...]

We Support Executive Order to Expand Buy America Preferences
By Michael Stumo

President Trump’s executive order to strengthen Buy America preferences for infrastructure projects deserves praise. While Buy America typically covers federal projects, the executive order will now extend such requirements to state-level projects that receive federal funding. Buying American-made goods helps to strengthen both the nation’s broader manufacturing sector and key industries that also contribute to America’s defense industrial base. It’s simply common sense to use our tax dollars on American-made products, whenever possible. We commend the president for extending this approach to state-level projects that receive assistance from Washington. The new Buy America order encourages those receiving federal funds to use domestically produced iron, aluminum, steel, cement, and other manufactured products. This will increase the work for many metal producers and manufacturers and likely help to grow good-paying jobs. [more...]

Americans Make Record Job Gains as Media Suffers Record Job Losses
By Daniel Greenfield

The winter freeze might have shut down entire cities, but it couldn’t slow down job growth as the economy roared through the cold and shattered projections with 304,000 non-farm jobs in January. There were job gains everywhere from transportation (27,000) to health care (42,000) to hospitality (74,000). Under President Trump, construction gained 338,000 jobs in 12 months while manufacturing picked up 261,000 jobs in that same period. There was good news for many industries, but bad news for one. The media is freezing colder than the polar vortex with thousands of lost jobs in January and February. [more...]

America Needs a War on Waste and a Transparency Revolution
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

We have taken out two pages in the Wall Street Journal this week - an open letter to President Trump urging him to wage war on waste and embrace the transparency revolution. Our message is endorsed by 140 prominent stakeholders, and 75,000 regular Americans who have signed our petition, including Newt Gingrich, Ed Meese III, Mike Huckabee, Jim DeMint, Grover Norquist, Patrick Caddell, Harlan Crow, former ambassadors, governors, senators, five current state treasurers and more.

'Medicare-for-all' Means Long Waits for Poor Care
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Candidates in the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination are running for president on a platform of taking away the private insurance coverage of about 200 million people and dumping everyone into a one-size-fits-all government-run health plan that would cost taxpayers trillions of dollars. And if the experiences of other countries with single-payer health care are any indication, it would result in long waits for poor care. [more...]
