U.S. October Trade Deficit Reaches 18-Month Low
By Jeff Ferry, Chief Economist

The U.S. international trade deficit in goods and services fell 7.6 percent in October, to $47.2 billion, as imports declined more than exports. This is the lowest monthly trade deficit figure since May 2018. The October decrease is due to a $3.7 billion drop in the goods deficit, to $68.0 billion, and an increase in the services surplus of $0.2 billion, to $20.8 billion. The fall in our monthly trade deficit, to under $50 billion for the first time in 17 months, combined with the 15 percent drop in our year-to-date China trade deficit, shows the Trump administration’s tariff policies are working. The U.S. economy continues to grow, consumer spending is growing, and inflation remains subdued. If we keep imports in check, we provide more demand for U.S. producers, which is the best path to growth and broadly shared prosperity. [more...]

'Jumanji' Sequel in ICE
By James Hirsen

Hollywood and its trendy urban surroundings are now acting as a laboratory of sorts for a new movie theater technology imported from France called the Immersive Cinema Experience (ICE). In the upcoming week, ICE will debut in Los Angeles with the release of the fantasy-adventure film “Jumanji: The Next Level,” which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Although it will cost movie-goers an additional $6, the ICE-equipped theater will feature luxury motor-operated leather seats, complete with built-in cell phone battery chargers. Unlike older technologies that have been installed in many movie theaters, ICE does not attempt to surround a theater-goer’s field of vision with a given movie’s actual action but instead uses sidewall panels to peripherally augment the impact of a cinematic scene.

The 'White Christmas' Democrat Debate
By Lowell Ponte

So much for the Democrat Party calling itself the "party of minorities," a rainbow that "looks like America," compared to a predominantly white Republican Party. This year Democrat Party bosses have imposed rules for the number of successful polls and number of dollars raised from many donors that a candidate needs to qualify for a place in the party debates. These standards are clearly rigged. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has been excluded by arbitrary boss decisions about which polls count and which do not - a capricious decision made AFTER Gabbard reached the number of polls with high enough numbers needed to qualify. So, as of this writing, have Latino Julian Castro, Asian-American Andrew Yang, and African-American Sen. Cory Booker. This leaves only far-leftovers with white skins to debate. [more...]

Why Do Liberals Have a God Complex?
By Karen Kataline

Leftist ideology typifies the kind of narcissistic, dictatorial parents that send many adults into therapy for twenty years. Such parents tend to discourage their kids from growing up and making their own choices and mistakes. This behavior feeds their own needs, not the needs of their children. The desire to use one’s power and resources to treat adults like children and keep them dependent is not much different, and it is anything but generous or altruistic. There is an epidemic that is being fueled by a Left that has de-educated the young in the principles of Liberty, individual freedom, and personal responsibility on which our country was proudly founded. God gave us free will but a man who thinks he’s God never does. [more...]

Democrats Stage a Phony Retreat on Medicare For All
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Not long ago, most leading Democrats were jostling for position aboard the "Medicare for All" bandwagon. But in the last few weeks, the political winds have shifted. During an interview on Bloomberg Television, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "I'm not a big fan of Medicare for All." New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez recently stated that he would not vote for Sen. Warren's Medicare for All plan, noting, "I'm not about to take away private insurance from the union members who have worked so hard to negotiate for it." Don't be fooled by this supposed moderation. Every plan offered by Democrats would lead to a full-fledged government takeover of our healthcare system. [more...]
