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.

President Donald Trump is traveling to Las Vegas on Saturday to fundraise for vulnerable Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller as part of the effort to expand the Senate’s majority -- something the president has focused on this week as part of the battle with Democrats over immigration. Trump is traveling to the glitzy city for a private fundraiser, as well as a keynote address to the Nevada GOP convention. He is also expected to hold a separate roundtable event to promote the tax reform legislation passed in December. Heller is the only Republican senator seeking re-election in a state won

Irish PM Meets Hillary Clinton, Insists Europe

Europe needs more mass migration from the Global South because it “enriches our cultures and societies”, according to Leo Varadkar, who announced he will import more asylum seekers to Ireland after meeting Hillary Clinton. Speaking days after a meeting with senior EU figures in Dublin, the globalist taoiseach (prime minister) committed to resettling a greater number of illegal immigrants stuck in Greece and Italy in Ireland than the batch of 4,000 already agreed. According to the Irish Independent, he said the gesture is about “solidarity and burden-sharing”, and as a way of repaying the support the European

Confirmation bias damages reputations. It ruins credibility. It destroys lives.When researchers ignore contradictory data that undermines their assumptions, junk science prevails. When police conduct investigations with predetermined outcomes, wrongful convictions abound. And when reporters cherry-pick facts and distort images to serve political agendas, media outlets become dangerous weapons of mass manipulation. Take Talia Lavin, a young journalist who has enjoyed a meteoric rise. Her pedigree appears impeccable on its face: She graduated with a degree in comparative literature from Harvard

Congress Must Stop Illegal Immigration

Throughout the 2016 Presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump was clear that he intended to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. As commander-in-chief, President Trump and his Attorney General Jeff Sessions have dutifully kept that promise. But now that the laws are being faithfully executed, we are witnessing just how broken our system truly is. The way our immigration laws are currently constituted, they provide for two enforcement options: full enforcement or no enforcement. For the safety of our children, no enforcement is not an option. The Obama policy of catch and release served as a notice to all illegal aliens

Clean the Swamp -President Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election in large part due to his stand against government corruption. Being an outsider, Americans believed Trump could make a real difference. The 2018 Congressional election is shaping up in similar fashion and because of this Donald Trump and Republicans will win again. In the 2016 election Americans were sick and tired of the corruption that consumed the Obama Administration. Americans were fed up with the Obama Administration and their patsy media. This message was represented in short chants at Trump rallies that all related to corruption— “Drain the Swamp!” Obama’s

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

The Minnesota Vikings made history on Thursday. Vikings players, coaches and members of the LGBTQ community came together for a first of its kind inclusion summit held by an NFL team. The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports. (snip) Kluwe´s hope is that the NFL and other sports leagues take notice, and it sparks conversations leading to more acceptance of the LGBTQ community in the athletic world.

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
