    “Free trade” means uncontrolled, unrestricted access to our economy for foreign-made goods, tariff- and duty-free. These goods are made at wages of $4 per hour or less. We cannot compete with these wages, so we are forced to outsource nearly all of our manufacturing, sell-out to foreign interests, or simply go bankrupt.

    Economy In Crisis ^ | August 31, 2016 | George Barlow
    America must stop thinking that protecting our economy is a bad thing. Protectionism, through appropriate and applicable tariffs could save our jobs, homes and economy. But, as long as we keep apologizing for doing what we must, we will not be able to rejuvenate our economy. We will keep begging for whatever jobs foreigners are willing to throw at us. Is this what we want to be – a nation of beggars? We need to be a proud nation, a strong nation once again and re-instate needed tariffs to protect and rebuild our economy.

    The American Conservative ^ | May 2oth 2016 | Pat Buchanan
    In the 1895 “History of the Republican Party,” the authors declare, “the Republican Party … is the party of protection … that carries the banner of protection proudly.” Under protectionist policies from 1865 to 1900, U.S. debt was cut by two-thirds. Customs duties provided 58 percent of revenue. Save for President Cleveland’s 2 percent tax, which was declared unconstitutional, there was no income tax. Commodity prices fell 58 percent. Real wages, despite a doubling of the population, rose 53 percent. Growth in GDP averaged over 4 percent a year. Industrial production rose almost 5 percent a year.

    Nearly 10,000 voters chanted “CNN sucks” during a campaign rally for Donald Trump in Pennsylvania Monday night. “I’m telling you, they are so dishonest. Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn’t be elected dog catcher,” Trump stated. “CNN is a disgrace.” The Republican nominee then alleged that CNN turned off its camera as he was criticizing the network. “I love WikiLeaks,” Trump proclaimed, while bashing his opponent Hillary Clinton during the campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania with nearly 10,000 people, according to Fox News, at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. WikiLeaks has been slowly revealing controversial emails from Clinton’s...

Nike puts American flags on shoes made by third world slaves after shutting out the American worker. I am sure those things cost $200.00. This is the problem in a nutshell..

    You know, I fly commercial two times per month to see my father. He's 85 and a veteran. I'm 50 and a veteran. I now have the indistinct pleasure of standing in line up to 4 hours for a three hour flight. I did not have to do this before 9-11. Okay, there was a little incident 4 years ago when I asked a TSA agent what made him get a job where he got to touch other men all day...

    A pro-trade group that wants Congress to approve the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership released a study Tuesday forecasting large income gains — but also acknowledging hundreds of thousands of job losses in some sectors. The study by the Peterson Institute for International Economics euphemistically refers to job losses as “churn.” The study pegs the annual number at 53,700 per year during the 15-year implementation period, which means more than 800,000 total. And that’s the optimistic forecast by a group that supports TPP. Curtis Ellis, executive director of the American Jobs Alliance, said Tuesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that he does...

    Washington ~ The federal government announced that the US trade deficit worsened yet again in February 2016. Modern trade deals continue to cause failures in US trade performance and loss of dynamic, diverse manufacturing and agricultural supply chains. Here are the relevant points from the report, released today. Trade deficit worsened: “The U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, through the Department of Commerce, announced today that the goods and services deficit was $47.1 billion in February, up $1.1 billion from $45.9 billion in January, revised. ” Exports down on a three month average: “Average exports of...

    n many cases they are looking out for their sponsors who are funding their elections! A prime example of this is Citizens United, a group that made it possible for large corporations to give massive amounts of money to whatever political candidate they choose – without transparency or disclosure as to where the money comes from or what it is used for. In a campaign landscape like this, elections become more about who can nab the most campaign money rather than the People’s choice. Instead of the People electing government officials, corporations with millions of dollars to ‘donate’ to campaigns...

  • Trump Camp: Ted Cruz Is ‘The Reason Why Obamatrade’ Passed

    breitbart ^ | 29MAR16 | Julia Hahn
    The reason why Obamatrade became law is because of Sen. Ted Cruz,” said Donald Trump’s senior policy advisor Stephen Miller on Monday’s program of Breitbart News Daily. Miller — who had been working for Sen. Jeff Sessions at the time that Sessions led the conservative opposition to Obamatrade in the U.S. Senate— said that Cruz’s “lobbying” effort to fast track President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership “was the difference maker” that enabled fast track to pass. Like Sen. Cruz, Obama had been pushing for fast track to ensure the passage of TPP. Fast track lowers the 67 votes required to pass a...

    Manufacturing was the economic growth engine of United States. It helped to create the high paying jobs, improved living standards, national wealth, military might, and tax revenues. Unfortunately, there has been a dramatic decline in the above scenario for the United States in the 21st century. The U.S is rapidly turning into non-Super Power second rate country. Manufacturing is the basis for research and development and National Defense and once represented more than 28% of the jobs in the U.S. Although the absolute number of jobs in American manufacturing was rather constant at about 17 million from 1969 to 2002,...

    Recent economic reports, including some by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), have delved into the devastating damages done to the American economy because of our sky-rocketing trade deficit. It’s no secret that the U.S. trade deficit is high. After all, our trade deficit is responsible for the transfer of over $1 billion a day to foreign countries. The EPI report took it a step further and claimed that our trade deficit increased our budget deficit by between $78.8 billion and $165.8 billion in 2012. Our trade deficit warrants attention because it is a devastating problem that is hurting not only...

    economyincrisis ^ | April 05, 2016 | James Moreland
    As unemployment has taken its toll on the United States, politicians continue to echo that education is the answer to the economic crisis. The question is: how will the well-educated ever provide for themselves when all the means to create wealth are flowing out of the country? Over the past twenty years, the United States has lost a massive number of lower and middle class value-added jobs. These are largely the manufacturing jobs that allowed the United States to support its own needs and export goods, which builds real wealth. However, many major economists predict that job losses should be...
