"I am confident that we will get an agreement and I am confident that we will get one that is warmly received by Congress. The question is really when," the ambassador said.

  • How to Destroy Two Million Jobs

    11/23/2019 5:47:06 AM PST · by Kaslin · 40 replies ^ | November 23, 2019 | Liam Sigaud
    A $15 minimum wage has already destroyed hundreds of small businesses and many more jobs in cities like New York and San Francisco, and – as interest grows within state and local governments – it now threatens the livelihoods of millions of workers nationwide. New research by my colleagues and me at the American Consumer Institute examines four major labor market policies – minimum wage hikes, predictive scheduling, mandatory paid leave and joint-employer regulations – and finds these labor regulations will lead to four million fewer jobs. The study estimates that half of these job losses will result as more...

    France has never quite reconciled itself to Britain's EU membership, ever since De Gaulle's famous non in the 1960s. Once Britain did join, Parisian perspectives on a more fully integrated Europe were often thwarted by scheming from London. Now, Emmanuel Macron, who has staked his presidency on reviving that project, wants to ensure the obstacle is finally removed. France was the sole sceptic of the EU's decision to grant an extension of Article 50 this morning. The relationship between Macron and Boris is increasingly portrayed as an unexpected bromance. But the reality is more prosaic and hard-headed. Macron is taking...

    In a wide-ranging interview, the country’s most powerful Democrat says Trump is unfit to be president — “ethically,” “intellectually” and “curiosity-wise” — but impeachment would be too divisive.

    Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, President Trump is abandoning his prior “America First” legal immigration reforms to support increases of legal immigration levels in order to expand profits for businesses and corporations. For the fourth time in about a month, Trump suggested increasing legal immigration levels. With Apple CEO Tim Cook sitting next to him at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he not only wanted more legal immigration but that companies needed an expansion of new arrivals to grow their business. “We’re going to have a lot of people coming into the country. We want a lot...

    President Trump’s hint that he will increase legal immigration levels and a pending automation doomsday that lawmakers have yet to regulate threatens millions of America’s working and middle class workers. This week, Trump reiterated for the third time in a few weeks that he believes the U.S. should be increasing already historic levels of legal immigration — where more than 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted every year at the expense of American taxpayers who are forced to subsidize the scheme through depressed wages and fewer job prospects

    President Trump threatened Tuesday to have the military “build the remaining sections” of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, appearing to revive a call to use Pentagon money to finish the project ahead of a meeting with congressional Democratic leaders opposed to the president’s funding request. For their part, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer put out a joint statement Monday arguing Trump and his party will own a government shutdown if they can’t strike a deal. “People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the...
