  • Donald Trump: A 21st Century Protectionist Herbert Hoover

    08/29/2015 9:14:18 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 70 replies
    Newsmax ^ | August 29,2015 | By Stephen Moore & Lawrence Kudlow
    By Stephen Moore & Lawrence Kudlow Here's a historical fact that Donald Trump, and many voters attracted to him, may not know: The last American president who was a trade protectionist was Republican Herbert Hoover. Obviously that economic strategy didn't turn out so well — either for the nation or the GOP. Does Trump aspire to be a 21st century Hoover with a modernized platform of the 1930 Smoot-Hawley tariff that helped send the U.S. and world economy into a decade-long depression and a collapse of the banking system? We can't help wondering whether the panic in world financial markets...

    Donald Trump may be the current GOP front-runner, but it's "doubtful in the extreme" that he will become the eventual nominee, let alone president, University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato says. "The Summer of Trump is unlikely to turn into a Year of Trump," Sabato, who heads the university's Center for Politics, writes in a "Crystal Ball" report released Thursday, in which he ranks the presidential candidates while putting Trump into a category of his own: "The Un-Nominatable Front-runner." "Trump is an early season fling for many people, fun while it lasts but doomed to break up somewhere along...

    Veteran journalist Ed Klein said on Saturday that the Obama administration "is up to its eyebrows in efforts to stop" Hillary Clinton from running for the White House — including six investigations launched by longtime presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett involving Clinton's years as Secretary of State. "This administration, the Obama administration, will do virtually anything to prevent Hillary from becoming president," Klein told renowned economist Larry Kudlow on his WABC radio show. Kudlow is also a Newsmax columnist and works for NBC's business channel, CNBC. "It's their view that if she does become president — like her husband, Bill —...

Things are now so out of control, DeLay said, that he even knows about a "secret memo" from the Justice Department aimed at legalizing "12 new perversions," including bestiality and pedophilia. "We've already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department," DeLay claimed.

    Conservative website Newsmax has pledged a very large donation to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a new report in the Wall Street Journal states. "Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organization’s CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007," reports the Journal. "Through a spokesman, he said the donation wasn't tantamount to an endorsement of Mrs. Clinton’s potential campaign, though he thinks she would 'make a great presidential candidate.'" Ruddy himself has even written a...

    The U.S.-led bombing campaign is doing little to stop foreign fighters joining the jihadist war in Iraq and Syria, The Daily Beast reports. U.S. officials said about 4,000 foreign radicals have joined the conflict since the allied airstrikes began — nearly as many combatants as coalition forces claimed to have killed. It raises concern that the Islamic State (ISIS) may be able to continue replenishing its ranks with jihadist recruits for years or even decades to come. "The numbers are not moving in our favor," Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said last week. The Tennessee Republican spoke following...

    Most African American youths believe President Barack Obama is a "deadbeat" leader, says Paul McKinley, a member of Voices of the Ex-Offender, a grassroots group of former inmates. "Every time they question the president about the black community, he's apologetic or embarrassed. Half of the time, I would say 97 percent of the time, he doesn't even want to say the black community exists," McKinley said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "A lot of the young people are seeing this double standard that the president has." McKinley says black Americans have identified with the Democratic Party...

Worse than that, he has even done it by seeming to take back all the good apparent truth-seeking work he did when he first came upon the national journalistic scene. “He has become friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton and won’t rule out supporting Hillary for president in 2016,” writes Businessweek.

"Going forward, we have to deal with our longer structural problems. The biggest one, as far as I'm concerned, is that we're no longer socially mobile as a country," Bush said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "You have people that are born poor and there's a higher and higher probability that they're going to stay poor.

In his letter of resignation, Petraeus cited an extra-marital affair he had been having. “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petraeus said in his letter to President Obama. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” Petraeus, who had a distinguished...

    With an approval rating stuck below 50 percent, a sour national mood, and polls showing him tied or trailing rival Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama's re-election bid faces an uncertain future. Gallup polls show that Obama’s job approval rating in the first week of May averaged just 47 percent and a May 3-6 Gallup poll found only 24 percent of Americans were satisfied with the way things are going. A poll released Thursday in the battleground state of North Carolina showed Romney leading the president, and the same day another poll showed Wisconsin — which Obama won handily in 2008...

    Can Newt Gingrich beat Barack Obama next November? Sure he can. It's really important to understand this. Whoever the Republican candidate is, that candidate will be subject to what Obama allies say is a "$750 million wrecking ball." Obama's whole campaign — totaling $1 billion — will be a savage attack on the Republican nominee because Obama can't run on his record and he knows it. And I believe that, if the Republican candidate sticks to the high road and focuses on Obama's record, the American people will see through the mud and will vote Republican. At this moment, Newt...

When the Republican vice presidential candidate could not name for Katie Couric which magazines or papers she regularly read that informed her worldview, it fueled the perception among voters that she was not ready for national office. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Palin set the record straight.

    "I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords." That is the Kent Brockman line from "The Simpsons" that Newsweek staffers fear they might have to repeat in some form if their magazine is purchased by NewsMax aka "insect overlords." To make all the nervous liberals out there feel better, Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post which owns Newsweek has given some reassurances that the NewsMax purchase might not happen. The problem for Newsweek staffers and liberals is that Kurtz doesn't sound exactly confident plus he sure doesn't make that magazine sound like an appealing property: While journalists get into the...

    Newsweek reporters are nervous, an employee told The Daily Caller, about being owned by the conservative Newsmax media company, which announced Wednesday that it had placed a bid to purchase the money-losing magazine. Newsweek’s owner, the Washington Post Company, put up the weekly for sale in May, about a year after a major redesign that included targeting an affluent audience with left-leaning thought pieces. Newsmax Media spokesman Scott Rosenblum confirmed the bid to The Daily Caller, saying in a statement that if the bid is successful, “Newsweek would continue in its mission to objectively report the news and provide analysis...

    Newsmax’s recent cruise through the Caribbean was not only an adventure but also a learning experience. One of the highlights of our trip was our stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and our visit with the Republican governor of the territory, Luis Fortuno. Dick Morris and I, as well as a group of our hosts, left our cruise ship docked in Old San Juan to visit Fortuno at the nearby La Fortaleza mansion, from which he governs the tropical island. Fortuno is a fascinating man whom we found to be not only charismatic but also a person who abides in...

    Slandering the President John F. Kavanaugh S.J. | NOVEMBER 23, 2009 America Magazine On Oct. 29 Glenn Beck ended his program on Fox TV with the words of Thomas Jefferson: “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Beck himself certainly has not been silent. In lectures, best-selling books, a radio program and his television show, he has warned America of the coming tyranny under a conspiratorial president. Armed with videos and quotations ranging from the mindless and amoral behavior of some members of Acorn to reckless statements made by associates and...

    Which statement here is weirder? Newsmax boss Christopher Ruddy now declaring that Bill Clinton was a "great president"? Or Clinton telling him he did a "good job" hounding him in the 1990s? Howard Kurtz unraveled this bizarre meeting of former adversaries in Monday’s Washington Post: For those who remember Ruddy's name from the scandal wars of the 1990s, that is nothing short of remarkable. Ruddy wrote a book titled "The Strange Death of Vincent Foster," questioning whether the Clinton aide, who committed suicide, had been murdered. He also questioned whether Commerce secretary Ron Brown, who died in a plane crash,...
