    Self and Tire business ^ | 4/10/17 | George
    Please read (I have been involved with this industry for over 20 years): Recently the ITC found that China has been subsidizing their medium truck tyre exports to the USA between 20-70% (depending on the factory). One month ago the ITC announced their judgement: NO TARIFF. Everyone was EXPECTING a very large tariff, as the same court ruled the year before in favor of tariffs on Chinese passenger tires (with similar subsidies). So there was precedent. Interestingly, 3 days prior to the vote, one judge recused himself from the case. They ended up 1 vote short for the tariff. The...

    I thank God every day for President Trump and pray for his continuing success. Had Trump not entered the race, the GOPe would have delivered the nomination to Jeb Bush and then Her Royal Heinous Hillary would be sitting in the White House today. Those who think that doesn't make any difference whatsoever are perfectly free to post somewhere else. God bless President Trump. God bless America.

    He said, “Because hands were lifted up against the throne of the Lord, the Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:16 The attack on Syria was unexpected and shocking to most of President Trump’s supporters. A large share of them are tired of nation building and believed him when he said we have tried to build enough nations and it was time to build America. The fact it was done as punishment for using chemical weapons on his own people was hard to justify since that part of the world is always killing...

    The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm KJV What should bother everyone is we are all being monitored 24/7/365 through every phone in America. If nothing else this Russia story is telling us is the NSA and its sister agencies were spying on a private citizen and in this case working for the DNC. They were not monitoring the Russian Ambassador they were monitoring the Trump campaign and using the Ambassador to fabricate a phony Russian coalition story. People need to...

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    The sooner the president realizes that Ryan is an establishment swamp dwelling snake...that's going to suck him down into the swampy quicksand and destroy his chances of enacting HIS agenda the better off he and we will be. Ryan represents the enemy within! Trump won the election already! Now it's his duty is to change gears, uphold the constitution, drain the swamp and MAGA. Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    "Prior to this year, the House voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times ---when it was clear that President Obama would veto the bill. The problem we are facing is that some of the people who voted for repeal 50 times will not vote for repeal when it counts, when it is "our moment in time," with Republicans in control of Congress and the presidency." --Rep Dave Brat "This has been my complaint since before Obamacare became law. Nothing I’ve seen addresses the problem of increased costs of medical care. All these bills just shift the rising costs from...

    I am sick of the lies repeated about the House Freedom Caucus. The HFC are the good guys, and the closest we have in the House to Tea Party. They fly below the radar because they are universally hated by the swamp and GOPe leadership, so as to dodge the publically threatened (by GOPe leadership) retaliation. They don't rush to the microphones, but in fact keep their membership list secret. They don't rally around anything unless 80% of their members support it, then hang together. They are NOT anti Trump, and anyone who says that is lying to you. Ask...

    This is absolutely stupid. These long drawn out debates within the GOP struggling to settle on the nitty gritty about what and who should be covered and at what price is ridiculous. It's NOT your job, gentlemen. All you are doing is playing into the socialist democrats hands. Please consult your pocket constitutions and discover that the power to make these decisions regarding health care and insurance, etc, is not an enumerated power and is not delegated by the constitution to the congress or the federal government. It's reserved to the states and the people. Get OUT of it!! Conservatives...

    Free Republic stands for God, family, country. We generally look to Judeo-Christian* guidance on issues of law, morality, justice, freedom, life, family and civil society. And we have a Christian self-governing, self-reliant, individual accountability & responsibility, you gotta work if able-bodied and want to eat attitude on cultural and societal issues. And a Christian pro-Constitution, original intent, pro-liberty, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, restricted government, small government, states rights, individual rights, free enterprise position on political and civil matters. *Note: I say Judeo-Christian because Jesus was a Jew and referred to the Ten Commandments, Jewish law, beliefs and customs and the scripture...

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 KJV If you need to lose a battle, RyanCare is the one to lose. This was another Marxist version of insurance which was going to eventually turn into universal Medicare. Now is the time to move on and begin working on a program which will repeal it after their mess falls apart. There is no need to replace it as there will be nothing left of Obamacare after the crash. President Donald Jobs Trump made...
  • Kill the Ryan bill! Repeal the unconstitutional Obamacare or let it go bust!

    A no vote on RYANcare/GOPcare is a vote FOR constitutional government. Obamacare, RYANcare, RINOcare, GOPcare, Hillarycare, Trumpcare or ANY form of federal government mandated health care package is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! The constitution clearly reserves health care and health care insurance to the states and the PEOPLE! The founders did not establish the federal government to be a charity or to "care for" the personal needs of the citizens. The founders never intended to create a welfare state! The constitution was intended to severely RESTRICT the powers of the federal government and to leave most governing powers to the states and the...

    Liberal politicians and media figures will tell you that "diversity is strength" and "America is a nation of immigrants" in defense of their policies. They will tell you that immigration will make communities more "vibrant" and "diverse." But are these platitudes really true? Just look at one area of the country, which took waves of unassimilated immigrants from nations across the world. When you are finished reading, decide for yourself if massive immigration without meaningful checks or assimilation is really a policy that benefits our nation and its citizens. The recent wave of unassimilated immigration from the Third World is...

    And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council, Acts 6:12 The media is the only business on the planet which believes it can insult its own customer base on a daily basis. Every other business believes the customer is always right while ABDNCBS pretty much hates theirs. This occurs since the only opinion which matters to them is their echo chamber reflecting the Upper East Side of NYC and a twenty mile radius of DC. Everyone else in America are ignorant rubes who...

    Our big spending national government—whether Republican, Democrat or whatever—ran up a national debt approaching ten trillion dollars during the 220 and some odd years prior to Obama taking office. During Obama’s 8 year term, our big spending government nearly doubled that debt. No one’s fault (cough, cough), but we and our posterity are now staring at an unbelievable, unmanageable, unsustainable, unpayable mountain of twenty trillion dollars in accumulated debt with no let up in sight! In fact they want to continue the wholesale printing and spending of money we don’t have and they’re planning on raising the debt ceiling to...

    Up until two weeks ago, the Russians were being accused of manipulating the U.S. presidential election, providing the Trump campaign with evidence, and virtually everything else up to landing cosmonauts on Jupiter. Was there anything the Russkies can't do? (Well, besides win the 1980 Olympic Ice Hockey game). Then, in 140 characters, Donald J. Trump, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (hehe--I love saying that)---changed the universe. Let's be clear, outside of the White House and a couple of cubbyholes in the DOJ, no one, including myself, has absolute knowledge of the FISA taps, who was the target, and what they...

    Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24 KJV It looked like rain as I drove the car to the Trump rally, but cleared a bit parking the car. It was poor weather in Portland so the turnout was hampered and it was a bit hard to find people who wanted to go last minute. Walking up with a large flag you could see there were plenty of likeminded patriots willing to stand up for...

    Over the past week the hysteria on the right and among some weak-kneed Trumpers has been over the top. Even Rush Limbaugh began to wiggle uncomfortably, fearing Trump did know what he was up against, and hadn't moved fast enough to deal with the "silent coup" against him. Jeff Sessions' recusal supposedly showed that Trump, like all the rest of the Republicans, didn't know how to play hardball. Ooops. I can always tell when something big is about to happen at Team Trump when my contact messages aren't returned. And I'm always pleasantly surprised that Team Trump is one to...

Joshua 1:9 KJV What did he know and when did he know it? It is so refreshing to find out the DNC actually believes one of America’s enemies is a threat. After fifty years of allying themselves with every US enemy from Nazi Germany to North Vietnam, China, USSR, PLO, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Iraq, Iran, Black Panthers, Communist Party, Old Media, La Raza, and others it is great for them...

    It's All Obama, And Has Been All Along. Valerie Jarret and Barack Obama have plotted to overthrow the President. They are now attempting to execute their plan. I have given the sequence of events some serious thought. By using The Daily Battle data points, believe I have uncovered a nefarious plot, produced by Valerie Jarett and Barack Obama, to depose Donald Trump as President. As ridiculous as it sounds, the premise they decided upon is that Donald Trump solicited help from Russia to pervert the election, on order to ensure that Hillary Clinton lost. This will be used as the...
