Promises Kept: Donald Trump Signs Steel
and Aluminum Tariffs to Protect Workers

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/8/2018 7:12:00 PM

President Donald Trump signed his official establishment of tariffs on aluminum and steel on Thursday in a dramatic ceremony in the Oval Office.The tariffs were exactly as he proposed them last week — 25 percent on steel, ten percent on aluminum. Trump said that the tariffs were important to sign, citing the industry communities that were devastated by bad trade deals and failed promises from failed politicians.“Our factories were left to rot and to rust all over the place,” Trump said. “Thriving communities were turned into ghost towns.”During his remarks, Trump explained how fundamental the tough actions on trade and

I am philosophically opposed to tariffs. However, there is an argument that sometimes they are necessary to convince countries that they cannot advance their interests by putting their fingers on the scales of free trade.

This is his tax increase to offset the tax cuts.
Everything manufactured in the US will increase in price and this will make it harder for US products to compete in the world.
Killing jobs to protect workers.
Kind of like "We had to burn down the village in order to save it."

But the ‘revelation’ to hordes of Democrat voting union members and other assorted blue collar workers that Trump cares and is actually doing something for them (unlike the Dems)? Priceless. Let’s see how this rolls out. I overheard 2 African American seniors chatting about this today while sitting in a doctor’s waiting room...and guess what? They approved and were praising Trump! I thought I was going to faint...patience, grasshoppers!

Now let´s see how much retail consumer prices actually rise. Hopefully the Smoot-Hawley "red herring" argument can finally be put to rest. The actual contribution of S-H to the Great Depression has been, IMO, highly exaggerated. There were several other more significant factors involved.

Tariffs, while they should be generally averted, do have their proper place from time to time.

There goes the libtard Steelworker´s union vote...no wonder libtards are having a hissy fit.

Funny how libtards have no problem making people pay astronomical amounts for no care under CommieCare, but now they´re all worried about steel prices.

March came in like a lion, and has turned into a Tyrannosaurus Rex. A spring storm is expected to dump as much as 15 inches of snow on the Big Apple on Wednesday — leaving New Yorkers wondering if they’ll ever be able to pack up their winter gear. The late-season strike is the fourth nor-easter to clobber the city in the last three weeks — and led Mayor de Blasio to shut down schools for the day.“Everyone is tired of it,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dave Samuhel, noting the recent spats of snowfall and below average temperatures.“It’s unfortunate really,” he




Why is the death penalty for
drug-traffickers controversial?
American Thinker, by Jack Hellner    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/21/2018 4:57:21 AM     Post Reply
President Trump is proposing that the death penalty be used for drug-traffickers. Most of the reporting I have seen presents that as a controversial, radical, dictatorial proposal. Here is one example from CNN: The speech looked to balance the President´s controversial calls for the federal government to get tougher on drug crimes with less heated proposals for increased federal funding to combat the opioid epidemic through ad campaigns and health programs. But his call for the death penalty immediately drew condemnation from treatment advocates, law enforcement officials and civil liberty organizations.Jesselyn McCurdy, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union´s Washington

President Trump predicted Tuesday night that Republicans "will keep the House majority" after November´s midterm elections -- and warned of dire consequences if they didn´t. Speaking to the National Republican Congressional Committee´s annual March fundraising dinner in Washington, the president warned that Democrats would block efforts to secure America´s borders and try to raise taxes. "They´re actually working right now to increase taxes and I´m saying, ´How do you lose to that?´" Trump said. "They want to increase taxes. Maybe they´ll call that tax reform." The president described House Democrats as being "way outside the American mainstream" and warned that

FBI Director Christopher Wray says President Trump has never made any requests of him regarding the federal Russia probe, but does not deny reports that he threatened to resign after he was encouraged to fire people under his charge.“He’s never asked me to do anything with the Russia investigation,” Wray told NBC News’ Pete Williams in an interview clip shown on Tuesday.Wray´s assertion stands in stark contrast to that of former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump last year. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June that Trump requested his loyalty and pressed him to

In a barnburner of an email, now-former Fox News analyst Ralph Peters informed his colleagues why he had told Fox News he would not be renewing his contract this month after working for the network for a decade. He wrote that Fox News “has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration,” adding he was “ashamed” of his association with Fox. Fox News has now responded. And the network didn’t mince words.“Ralph Peters is entitled to his opinion despite the fact that he’s choosing to

Her January 2001 conviction for attempted armed robbery led to a five-year sentence of which she served more than four

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in Tempe, Ariz., died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on public roads. The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

"Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration," wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst." "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed," he wrote.

Police in Glendale, Wis., are currently seeking the public’s help in identifying an irate McDonald’s customer who assaulted a teenage employee after receiving the wrong breakfast order. The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this? I didn´t order no sausage biscuit,” said the woman, who then threw the food back at the
