  • Free Trade Isn't

    08/13/2020 6:42:19 AM PDT · by GarthVader · 13 replies
    “Free Trade” isn’t. Low tariffs combined with high taxes on domestic labor is not Free Trade. It’s Subsidized Outsourcing, subsidized destruction of our industrial base and our national character. We tax domestic manufacturing in order to pay unemployment and welfare to those who lose their jobs to foreign competition. This is an evil positive feedback loop that has been crushing our working classes since the 70s. Our core cities are turning into uncivilized war zones and our college campuses into communist indoctrination centers. But at least we are subsidizing a rising fascist superpower with a terrible environmental record.
  • Petition to the President: Overturn state limitations on size of gatherings for non-profit groups.

    The state's temporary limit on size of gatherings violates the First Amendments "Assemble Peaceably" clause. The limit on size of gatherings for religious groups violates the First Amendments "Free Exercise" clause. There is no pandemic exception to the First Amendment in the United State Constitution. People should have the freedom to choose rather or not to go to a gathering. Many of us would rather take risks that make us happy, rather than live sad because many people are scared of COVID-19. We believe that states which do not follow the United States Constitution bring confusion. Not all states have...

    Have you had enough of: U.S. Government now approaching 23 Trillion dollars in debt, and still borrowing about One Trillion more dollars every year. That’s about 3 Billion new dollars borrowed every day. Congress funding abortions with your tax dollars Government taking one-fourth of the average paycheck, while sending money to other people who refuse to work…and occasionally bailing out companies like General Motors and CIT Group, who have failed to repay billions of dollars to the taxpayers Courts forcing private business owners to fill orders that violate their ethical standards...

    Your American Experiment ^ | 12/05/18 | Greg Brannon & Bill LuMaye
    Bill LuMaye: Tell me a little bit about President Bush and what he signed in regards to Agenda 21 and the UN. Greg Brannon: He signed the Rio Summit in 1992 that put all the CO2 climate control as law de facto. He needed the Senate to pass it. This is important. Treaties must be passed by US Senate. Okay? What they do is they change it to agreements or what since President- Bill LuMaye: Why did they change it to agreements? Greg Brannon: Because you don’t need the Senate to pass it. -------------------- Greg Brannon: “It has long been...
  • Ron Paul: Rough Times Ahead, But Liberty Can Still Win

    Ron Paul Institute ^ | 12/31/18 | Ron Paul
    While Congress and the president fight over funding a border wall, they continue to ignore the coming economic tsunami caused by the approximately 22 trillion dollars (and rapidly increasing) federal debt. President Trump may not be troubled by the debt’s effect on the economy because he believes he will be out of office before it becomes a major problem. However, the crisis may come sooner than he, or most people in DC, expects. The constituency for limited government, while growing, is still far outnumbered by those wanting government to provide economic and personal security. From lower-income Americans who rely on...

    Early Voters in WI, MI, MN, NY and PA can revote on election day Fox news just showed a map of states where people who early vote can "revote" on or before Election Day. Louisiana is also a state where this is true. 15mm have already voted. If they are having indigestion for having voted for a potential felon and live in one of these states, there is a cure available to them.
  • Why the ruling class' grip on America is failing

    On Sept. 6, 2016, Neal B. Freeman of the National Review published an interview with Angelo Codevilla, the author of “The Ruling Class.” The bottom line was that Dr. Codevilla has concluded that what he has estimated to be two-thirds of the country’s citizens are increasingly falling in with the increasing number of those who intend to vote for Donald J. Trump as president, despite having an opinion that he has significant shortcomings and that they are doing so because of their dissatisfaction, as the “country class,” with the ruling class. ****People have been able, with regard to one candidate,...

    Opportunities for producing and assembling products and their components have spread worldwide, making it is easier for countries to climb the production value ladder. States at the bottom, extracting raw materials, can gradually move up, first making low-value components and then progressing to higher-value ones or basic assembly. But just as technology spurred globalization and the shifts in international trade that followed, so, too, will it revolutionize how countries again do business with one another. Compounded by the economic and demographic changes taking place today, automation, advanced robotics and software-driven technologies are ushering in a new era — one of...

    Spero News ^ | MAY 3, 2016 | BY MARTIN BARILLAS
    Andrew Cash, a former student at Missouri State University, is suing the institution over his dismissal from a graduate program in counseling. Cash has retained counsel from the Thomas More Society, a national public interest law firm, and has filed a federal civil rights complaint against the Governors of Missouri State University. Cash and his lawyers contend that he was dismissed from the university’s Master’s program in counseling because he expressed concern over counseling same-sex couples due to his religious convictions. In an exclusive interview, Spero News interviewed attorney Tom Olp of the Thomas More Society, which is representing Cash....

    One of the predominant themes of the 2016 presidential campaign thus far — and one that is unlikely to lose significance once the primaries give way to the general election — is the American people’s exasperation with a political system they see as corrupt, self-serving, disingenuous and out of touch. Advertisement Advertisement It is not an especially partisan or ideological sentiment; you can just as easily find it among supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders as among fans of Donald Trump. You can even find those who support paragons of the status quo, like Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, making similar...
  • Top RLC National Leader Switches Support From Paul to Cruz

    Conservative Fifty ^ | January 3, 2016 | Javan Browder, Managing editor
    Ted Cruz is continuing to consolidate support from among many of his primary rivals. Recently, as leader Ben Carson has seen a virtual implosion within his campaign, and with his poll numbers in a freefall, Cruz has surged into the lead in Iowa, and is in a solid second place nationally as well as in South Carolina, Florida, Nevada and Georgia. Cruz's surge is largely based on picking up the support of Carson voters, especially evangelical voters who are leaving Carson for Cruz in large numbers. But Cruz is also seeing support come his way from the "Liberty" movement. Steve...

    "Chatting" with a FB friend and discussing the 2nd. Send me to wikipedia for a quick view and noticed the following: "There are actually two different versions: As passed by the Congress and preserved in the National Archives, with the rest of the original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights prepared by scribe William Lambert:[29] (p) A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    Did you listen to Jeb Bush make his announcement yesterday? Did you hear loud cheers from a crowd that seemed excited at the prospect that there could be another Bush as President? Was I the only one confused? I don’t know one person who doesn’t threaten to leave the Country if it’s Bush vs Clinton for President again. Can’t imagine folks actually excited and cheering for Jeb. It got me wondering, would someone like Jeb, or another candidate that’s been struggling like he has, hire a crowd? Pay people to attend their rallies to make them seem like their gaining...

    Fusion ^ | April 7, 2015 | Daniel Rivero
    A white police officer in North Charleston, South Carolina has been charged with murder after video emerged of him shooting an unarmed black man in the back while he was trying to run away, reports the Charleston Post and Courier. The two had been involved in a scuffle. The man, 50-year-old Walter Scott, died Saturday after Patrolman 1st Class Michael Slager, 33, shot at him eight times, though it is not immediately clear how many shots hit him. Scott had been stopped for a broken tail light, and he ran from police “because he owed child support,” said his family,...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | April 6, 2014 | William McGurn
    The reigning assumption, of course, is that the law Gov. Mike Pence signed and then gutted after the media unleashed its fury is now exacerbating the rift between business- and libertarian-inclined Republicans who favor same-sex marriage and the social conservatives who oppose it. But is it? The reality suggests the opposite. Today the strongest arguments for protecting the right of, say, an evangelical Christian baker to decline baking a cake for a gay wedding are not coming from religious leaders or social conservatives. They are coming from libertarians, many if not most of whom themselves support same-sex marriage.

    Utah is considering a bill that would allow patients with certain debilitating conditions to be treated with edible forms of marijuana. If the bill passes, the state's wildlife may "cultivate a taste" for the plant, lose their fear of humans, and basically be high all the time. That's according to testimony presented to a Utah Senate panel (time stamp 58:00) last week by an agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration. "I deal in facts. I deal in science," said special agent Matt Fairbanks, who's been working in the state for a decade. He is member of the "marijuana eradication" team...

    Red Nation Rising ^ | November 20, 2014 | Politically Incorrect
    Every time a liberal bemoans “big money” in politics, it somehow always invokes the name “Koch” when, in fact, it should invoke the name “Soros”. George Soros, hedge fund billionaire, Nazi sympathizer, also known as the man who “broke the bank of England” despises the idea of “free markets” and capitalism as symbolized by the United States. As such, it’s become his life’s goal to create an “open society” which would, accordingly to Robert Chandler of Accuracy in Meida, “require terminating U.S. sovereignty, disposing of the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights, or at least modifying them...
