Treasury Overlooks the True Culprit Behind U.S. Dollar Strength
By Michael Stumo

After a long delay, the Treasury Department just released its latest semi-annual report on global currency exchange policies. The congressionally mandated report provides an assessment of whether foreign countries are undervaluing their currencies to gain a trade advantage. The major takeaway from the report is that Treasury has expanded the list of countries it is monitoring for exchange rate abuses. However, the department repeated its longstanding practice - and once again found no currency “manipulation” by America’s trade competitors. In other words, Treasury believes that foreign central banks are not acting to push the U.S. dollar’s value up to noncompetitive levels. [more...]

Why Trump's Style is Not the Problem
By David Horowitz

Right from the start, President Trump has had to fight off a seditious political party and media, while attempting to secure our borders, stop the fleecing of American taxpayers through unfair trade policies, defend Israel in a way that no previous president Republican or Democrat has been willing to do. I do wish Trump would forgo some of his decisions to get down and dirty with his political opponents who are distorting almost everything he says and does, beginning with his border policies which are neither anti-immigrant nor racist nor anti-Muslim. But amazed as I am that he has been able to withstand these attacks and steer our country in a positive direction, I am loathe to criticize him harshly when he attempts to defend himself. I sympathize wholly with Americans' concerns, I just don’t see an easy way out while the Democrats are pursuing impeachment of the president for obstruction of justice in the case of a crime (collusion) that never took place.

Are Left-Loving Millennials the Generation that Will Extinguish Our Freedom?
By Lowell Ponte

Millennials do not want to become responsible parents because THEY want to remain pampered children who need never grow up. They favor socialism because it would let them live as infantile, selfish children with government replacing their parents as the suppliers of food, shelter, and clothing so the kids need never work. Millennials apparently like dependency on government. Meanwhile, the younger generation's I.Q. has measurably fallen here and in Europe by 3-6 points, and their sperm count has plunged by 60 percent. Millennials may love the Left because they "are incapable of mature love and have lost the human will to live." [more...]

Woke Disney is Risky Business
By James Hirsen

Entertainment behemoth Walt Disney Company, which as a business startup had a focus on child-oriented product, now has a CEO who has taken an anti-child stance on a significant societal issue. In a Reuters interview that took place prior to the dedication of Disneyland’s newest land, “Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge,” Disney head Bob Iger was asked whether or not the company would continue to use the state of Georgia as a location for the filming of its projects. The reason the question was posed to Iger is because Georgia recently passed a state law that bans abortion procedures after a fetal heartbeat can be detected (approximately six weeks of gestation). Iger was letting the world know which side Disney is on in the culture war that continues to surround abortion. [more...]

Terror Attacks on Saudi Oil Reveal Moralism Folly
By Joseph P. Duggan

Tanker ships and the strategic pipeline of Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, suffered terrorist attacks recently. Aramco has the monopoly on all Saudi Arabian oil production and is wholly owned by the Saudi government, the United States’ most powerful ally in the Middle East. The attacks at sea and in the heart of Saudi Arabia coincide with the upcoming public release of President Trump’s Arab-Israeli peace plan, for which Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates already are signaling support. Iran or its allies are suspected of responsibility for the attacks. As the crisis intensifies, the U.S. Senate’s Dynamic Duo of bellicosity, Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), are calling for harsh new economic sanctions. Are they to be imposed against Iran? No, it would seem that the U.S. already has maxed out on sanctions against Iran. [more...]
