    Mark Levin gave a stern warning to both Donald Trump over his recent attacks on Ben Carson and Marco Rubio for trying to smear Ted Cruz on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, telling them both that their attacks are unacceptable to him. He told Trump that if he continued these reckless personal assaults on Carson, he’d have to affirmatively oppose him. He pretty much said the same to Rubio, pointing out that he simply can’t accept Rubio’s smear attacks on Ted Cruz and that it was his decision to support the Gang of 8 and he would have to...

Ted Cruz is an anchor baby in Canada, but Canada doesn’t accept anchor babies, they just waited a long time.” He added: “I think that’s one of the reasons he’s a nervous wreck. Now they’re saying, I think, his career is over, right? How about this, he’s a citizen of Canada and he’s a senator from Texas?”

    But now the deal is off. The Boston Globe is reporting that U.S.-based shoe manufacturer New Balance has come out hard against the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal. The odd thing, though, is that "the Boston company had gone quiet [on TPP] last year." Now, apparently, we know why: New Balance officials say one big reason is that they were told the Department of Defense would give them serious consideration for a contract to outfit recruits with athletic shoes. But no order has been placed, and New Balance officials say the Pentagon is intentionally delaying any purchase. New Balance is...

    The Libertarian Party might get more votes this year. Before the primaries, Time Magazine, frequent pusher of trends that do not exist, put Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ken.) on its cover and called him the "most interesting man in politics." Then Paul fizzled, and pundits said the "libertarian moment," if there ever was one, had ended. But Sen. Paul never ran as a libertarian. He ran as a libertarian-ish Republican, and he wasn't particularly convincing when he got to speak in debates. Americans were unimpressed. But now that, according to ElectionBettingOdds.com, the presidential race will be a choice between Donald Trump...

The Cruz amendment would have doubled the number of Muslim immigrants to America to up to 1.35 million. Steve Miller added, Why is it that...

    It wont help the economy, it wont stop China, and it will harm certain U.S. industries. President Obamas top 2016 legislative priority is passage of his legacy-building free-trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But the American public is highly skeptical of TPP and its alleged beneficial economic effects. The public has it right. The problems with the deal are legion. Here are a few great reasons to oppose the deal: TPP does not include provisions prohibiting currency manipulation or enforceable penalties for doing so. Currency manipulation has cost the U.S. thousands of factories and millions of jobs over the last...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz pledges to stand up for fair trade in a new state-wide Wisconsin ad hitting on international trade deals, a signature issue of frontrunner Donald Trumps campaign. Free trade is generally seen as a globalist policy in which restrictions on imports and exports are kept to an absolute minimum. Fair traders, on the other hand, argue that purely free trade can have negative consequences for the citizens of a particular country, especially when it comes to wages and employment opportunities for the lower and middle classes. They recommend that sovereign nations negotiate and implement trade deals...

And yet, in practice, it seems like free trade may be wiping out the middle class. What is going wrong here? The textbooks explain that when a country engages in free trade, several things happen: There are winners and losers. The losers need to retrain and/or lower their expectations. What the winners win is more than what the losers lose. What people lose when their wages are depressed by globalizing the labor market is more...

Ted Cruz, by contrast, wrote an op-ed urging Congress to fast track Obamas Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). No fast-tracked trade agreement has ever been defeated. Sen. Grahams energetic endorsement of Cruz and Cruzs refusal to disavow the endorsement of a man who many believe betrayed the American people with his unyielding push for mass migration will no doubt raise questions as to whether...

That places Ohio sixth, in terms of the percentage of jobs lost to trade with TPP countries, among the 50 states and the District of Columbia ranked in the report released Thursday by the liberal Washington, D.C.-based think tank. The lost jobs represent nearly 2.2 percent of employment in Ohio, according to the analysis. The total number of lost jobs includes those directly and indirectly impacted...

    It is hard to fight stupidity but when it comes from the premier conservative radio talk show host is it really stupidity or deception? So here we go again another example of Rush defending his buds at Apple. He said iPhones could never be built in the USA. On the surface my reaction was what: is there a force field keeping Apple from building a factory in the USA? Joking aside his hobnobbing friends have brain washed him into believing the Free Traitor lie. Here is the actual on air whopper: and I paraphrase; If Apple were to build iPhones...

    Bernie Sanders' upset victory in Michigan came just two days after he stood on the debate stage in the perennially beleaguered city of Flint, Michigan, and decried the economic condition of the surrounding area. He put the blame where he, like Donald Trump, often puts it: on free trade. "Do you know that in 1960, Detroit, Michigan, was one of the wealthiest cities in America?" he demanded. "Flint, Michigan, was a prosperous city. But then what happened is corporate America said, 'Why do I want to pay somebody in Michigan a living wage when I could pay slave wages in...

    First, Friedman from "Free to Choose", Chapter 2, "The Tyranny of Controls" It is often said that bad economic policy reflects disagreement among the experts; that if all economists gave the same advice, economic policy would be good. Economists often do disagree, but that has not been true with respect to international trade. Ever since Adam Smith there has been virtual unanimity among economists, whatever their ideological position on other issues, that international free trade is in the best interest of the trading countries and of the world. Yet tariffs have been the rule. [...] We [the U.S.] should move...

    The American people have concluded theyre getting screwed by trade deals, immigration policy, and other areas where their interests are not considered a priority by their own political and business leaders. He contended this backlash against the elites was the reason so many highly-touted candidates have flamed out of the GOP primary, which is on the verge of boiling down to a two-man race between the two leading anti-Establishment candidates, Donald Trump and Senator Sen. Ted Cruz Caddell said the critique of free trade from Trump and to a lesser extent, his final remaining competitors was the kind...

    The fall in traffic could signal a permanent shift in the fundamentals driving globalisation. The Port of Charleston spent most of the early 2000s enjoying double-digit growth as an accelerating wave of globalisation — fuelled by a rising China and a US consumer boom — brought robust volumes of cargo into the seaport. But those days are long gone. Jim Newsome, chief executive of the South Carolina Ports Authority, says he would be happy with 3 per cent growth in Charleston this year, a goal he concedes may be too ambitious. In January, container traffic at the port fell 5.1...

    Trade tensions between India and the United States intensified on Friday as New Delhi filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization over steep fee increases for U.S. non-immigrant temporary work visas. The WTO said in a statement that India has disputed the doubling of the fees for H-1B and L-1 work visas and limits on their numbers. The visas are typically used by thousands of Indian nationals hired by information technology services firms operating in the United States. The complaint comes just days after the United States won a WTO ruling in favor of its challenge to India's domestic...

    At Thursday nights Republican debate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), John Kasich, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) all parroted talking points about trade that do not seem to match their prior legislative records and statements on the critical issue. While Donald Trump has articulated his vociferous opposition to President Barack Obamas trade agenda in practically every GOP debate, tonight marked the first debate in which all of the other candidates were asked about their previous support for trade globalism. Breitbart News reported extensively on debate moderators prior failure to cover the issue in previous debates. According to Pew polling data, by...
