America First: Trump Imposes
30% Tariff on Imported Solar
Products and Washing Machines

Breitbart Big Government, by John Carney

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2018 10:14:24 PM

President Donald Trump imposed steep tariffs on imported solar cells on Monday in response to a trade case brought by U.S. solar manufacturers charging that cheap imports, particularly from China, were harming domestic solar companies. The United States trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, announced that the president had decided to impose the tariffs, accepting the recommendation of the administration’s trade advisors. The United States International Trade Commission, an independent body of trade experts, had engaged in “an exhaustive process” to examine the charges filed by American businesses and concluded that U.S. producers had been “seriously injured” by imports. “The President’s action

Comments:
I certainly appreciate his American First policy. I don´t understand all of the ramifications of this or economic policies to make an intelligent comment as to whether is this positive or negative. I still question the government subsidies of the solar industry. Naturally Solyndra is the first thing I thought of. What a massive failure and waste of money that was that we never recouped.

The tariffs don’t get paid by the foreign manufacturers and importers, they get paid by the American people when they purchase these goods. This results in higher prices and the 30% gets passed on plus administrative fees to cover the costs of paying it to the government. It’s a very bad idea.

Is China subsidizing the steel used in a washer? Can US manufacturers compete if price was same as price sold in China? Did China rip off US washer technology? Is China price same as LG or Samsung from Korea? Access to the HUGE US market should not be free to ChiComs.

Solyndra was even worse than that, OP. Obama forced the taxpayer to compensate George Kaiser for his losses due to personal investment in Solyndra. Totally illegal, of course, but elite leftists always get special treatment.

Oh please, how often do buy a washing machine? 30% of the cost is probably very little . We don’t pay cost, we pay retail. I’m willing to pay a few extra $$ to keep The Jobs in the US.

The appliances we bought last year were assembled in the USA. Shouldn´t affect me unless the "with foreign-made components" clause is in the tariff. Still, not crazy about tariffs, human nature being what it is. (Think unions.)

Good. This will help US manufacturers of the competing goods. More good news, although it will increase the cost of solar panels and washing machines.

But, since I buy a washing machine about every 25 years, I am OK with this.

I saw a trending story about this on Facebook on Monday,from a so called *news* source I´ve never heard of. Their take was that President Trump is attacking the Solar Power Industry and that it´s going to cause it to collapse and we are going to run out of clean ways to produce power. All because of that meanie Donald Trump and his hatred of making clean energy and any and all things that are environmentally friendly. I chuckled after reading the first paragraph or so and closed the page. Figured it wasn´t at all as portrayed...and yep,it wasn´t. The problem with Facebook is their trending stories (which I have yet to find a way to hide from my timeline), are almost always like this. There are stories that attack Donald Trump every single day, I have NEVER seen a positive story on there about him or about any true conservative. Facebook labels most, if not all conservative sources as fake news, and many are blocked or identified as questionable when they show up on my news feed.If it wasn´t for the connection to dear family and friends I would walk away and not look back.

Mark Zuckerberg colludes with Russia

The Bolshevik Revolution turned 100 last October. As Friday’s indictment of Russia´s Internet Research Agency reminds us, it´s been 100 years of tyrannical and murderous Russian regimes working to subvert democracy wherever they can and distort American public opinion by any means they can devise. (Snip) As of this week, Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, is now directly colluding with Putin to influence world opinion in favor of the tyrant´s regime. It’s happening before your very eyes.

The specificity here is pretty damning. The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI took no action. (Snip) The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen. […] Mateen’s background, however, was checked again by G4S in 2013 after the

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

The nation’s adoration of moderate former Democratic President John F. Kennedy continues, making him the most popular recent president, according to a new survey. A new University of Virginia Center for Politics-Reuters/Ipsos survey, released in advance of President´s Day, found on a 1 to 10 rating that Kennedy had the best, followed by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. And while another recent poll found that Reagan was the past president most wanted to return to the White House, it is now Obama at the top. A previous version of this story inaccurately quoted the poll. In the survey, President Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet done investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election after indicting 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for seeking to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a report Friday. The indictments cover just a portion of the investigation, which is expected to continue on for months, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg. The probe is also seeking to determine if Trump obstructed justice, the person said. Mueller has not publicly confirmed that his team has ever looked into possible efforts obstruct justice.

The criminal indictment of 13 Russians for allegedly trying to influence “U.S. political and electoral processes” provides no evidence of any collusion between these Russians – or any other Russian officials – and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race. While the description of alleged Russian activities is very troubling, it is important to note that the indictment makes no mention of any hacking or other activity that changed ballots, vote counts, or actually interfered with the election. In essence, the indictment is for trying to run the typical type of public misinformation campaign that the Soviet KGB was

The high court’s Friday afternoon orders list showed no action on the petition, a strong indication it will be denied.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration´s muted response to the 2014 Sony hack may have laid the groundwork for Russia´s meddling in the 2016 elections, a top Democrat argued Friday. Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said the previous administration should have established a "more forceful deterrent" against potential adversaries considering cyberattacks against the U.S. or its institutions. (Snip) Russia´s unusually brazen and "ham-handed" cyber campaign against the U.S. unfortunately coincided with a Republican candidate willing to embrace the help of an adversary, Schiff said.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz -- who mowed down Parkland, Florida, high school students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others -- had been thrown out of the same school for threatening his classmates. He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy."

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
