President Trump and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer followed through on the trade commission study from last year showing evidence of dumping in the U.S. market. Samsung anticipated this final outcome and is almost finished with their plans to manufacture washing machines in South Carolina.Washington, DC – U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer announced today that President Trump has approved recommendations to impose safeguard tariffs on imported large residential washing machines and imported solar cells and modules. USTR made the recommendations to the President based on consultations with the interagency Trade Policy Committee (TPC) in response to findings by the independent,

More promise keeping and more making America great. This will help US companies in these businesses. More sales, more jobs, more profits, more taxes paid.

Those Samsung washers and dryers are much more expensive than the domestic brands (which may be made in other countries too) and, according to an appliance repairman, are no more reliable than the others. They seem to be some kind of fad among the yuppies...

In olden thymes my late Mother swore by Maytag. I could not afford so went with Kenmore (maybe made by Whirlpool?). The not-new Whirlpool I “inherited” a few years ago with a move is nasty. The agitator manages to tangle clothes so that they are almost impossible to get apart, and they wear out so much sooner.

It will be a challenge to buy a new washing machine in today’s situation unless a few more regulations are taken away. I like to wash clothes in a fair amount of water. And hate front-loaders.

Oh, fabulous! This is exactly what Herbert Hoover did on his way to creating the Great Depression.

From the Smoot-Hawley tariffs to the Holy-Smoke tariffs.

Nice move - - real nice move.

Yes, putting a slight brake on some predatory, targeted, government subsidized, industries will be exactly like the late 1920s. The wounded victims are globalists and DC/wall street insiders. Unfortunately China doesn´t get to oversee the decision so world trade hangs in the balance, I guess... according to ´experts.´

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday the U.S. will pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran, dealing a profound blow to U.S. allies and potentially deepening the president´s isolation on the world stage. "Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie," Trump said in a televised address. "The fact is, this was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made. It didn´t bring calm. It didn´t bring peace, and it never will." "The United States does not make empty threats," he said. Trump´s decision means Iran´s government must now decide whether to follow the U.S.

WASHINGTON — President Trump declared on Tuesday that he was pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, unraveling the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and isolating the United States among its Western allies. “This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made,” Mr. Trump said at the White House in announcing his decision. “It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace, and it never will.” Mr. Trump’s announcement, while long anticipated and widely telegraphed, plunges America’s relations with European allies into deep uncertainty.

"I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal," Trump said from the White House. "It is clear to me that we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement," he said. "The Iran deal is defective at its core.

Washington-Today marks the first major primary day of the 2018 elections, with four states -- North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia and Ohio -- voting. There are no two people who love elections more than me and CNN resident big brain Harry Enten. So we spent this morning exchanging emails about Don Blankenship, the vagaries of public polling, why Harry thinks West Virginia is a fascinating state and why today might tell us just how much the GOP is Donald Trump´s party now.

In the bombshell New Yorker piece that resulted in Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s resignation over multiple allegations of sexual misconduct Monday night, one of his accusers claims that she was urged to keep quiet about his alleged physical abuse because “Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.” “After the former girlfriend ended the relationship” the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer report, “she told several friends about the abuse. A number of them advised her to keep the story to herself, arguing that Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.”

It hasn’t quite worked out that way. Seems most Americans don’t really care what may or may not have happened between Mr. Trump and Ms. Daniels more than a decade earlier. What they care about even less are media pundits proclaiming it to be a real story when it clearly is not. And now as the 2018 Midterms approach, the media is

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master,” the woman says. Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes. “Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said. Ex-girlfriend says Schneiderman beat, choked her after night of drinking “He started calling me his

Senator John McCain is back home in Arizona spending time with family and friends as he battles an aggressive brain cancer. (Snip)In 2016, the senator was worth $14.8 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, and now Celebritynetworth.com estimates his net worth to be $16 million. But the real money—and perhaps the reason the family has too many homes to keep track of—comes from Cindy Hensley McCain, the senator´s 63-year-old wife.Cindy, whom Senator McCain married in 1980, reportedly inherited a majority stake in the Phoenix Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship her father founded in 1955.

Remember the January 2012 ABC Presidential primary debate when out of nowhere George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney: if access to contraception was protected under the constitution? [Please watch to remind yourself.] In 2012 no-one knew what the heck that was about… the question literally came out of left-field. Less than a week later the Democrats began introducing Sandra Fluke, and the rest is history. ABC was working hand-in-hand with the DNC to CREATE a narrative out of thin air.

Former Trump campaign advisor Michael Caputo condemned the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday following his closed-door testimony. His words, no doubt, resonated with every Trump aide, associate, and family member ensnared in the bogus Trump-Russia election collusion scam. (Snip) Caputo made the egregious error of having once worked for the Russians. In the 1990s. He told New York magazine in an interview this week that he “studied Russia in college and became a big admirer of Russian literature and ballet. I worked hard in the Cold War to defeat Russia, and after the Wall fell I grew curious about the Russian people.

Broward school district officials admitted Sunday that the confessed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gunman was assigned to a controversial disciplinary program, after the superintendent repeatedly claimed Nikolas Cruz had "no connection" to the alternative punishment designed to limit on-campus arrests. Two sources with knowledge of Cruz’s discipline records told WLRN he was referred to the so-called PROMISE Program for a three-day stint after committing vandalism at Westglades Middle School in 2013.When asked for a response, a spokeswoman for Superintendent Robert Runcie stated on Friday that

Donald Trump finally found a federal judge to whom he could relate. Judge T.S. Ellis III on Friday blasted prosecutors from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office as using their case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to get at the president for either an indictment or an impeachment. Trump declared Ellis to be “really something very special” in showing that this is nothing more than a “witch hunt.” While reluctant to say so publicly, many lawyers would find Ellis’s comments “special” in the sense of being especially problematic from a federal judge. There is a legitimate concern in how Mueller

Arizona Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain is reportedly making preparations for his own funeral, with requests that former presidents George Walker Bush and Barack Obama attend the ceremony and eulogize him. McCain, 81, was diagnosed last July with primary glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The tumor was discovered during a routine physical the senator underwent in early July. After complaining of fatigue and double vision, McCain was given a CT scan, which revealed a clot just below his left eyebrow. While some patients can, with aggressive treatment live, as long as 5 to 10 years,

But Clinton´s style choice, which she has even worn out in 80 degree temperatures, has prompted speculation that she has something to hide... a back brace. Eagle-eyed social media users noticed a strange protrusion coming from Clinton´s back when she was photographed visiting her daughter Chelsea´s apartment in New York last week.

When does a gross indiscretion, aimed at undermining President Trump through private negotiations with a sworn enemy of America, become something bigger? Former Secretary of State John Kerry, deep into his months-long “shadow diplomacy” with Iran, is testing the point. Truth is, the antiquated Logan Act – which bars exactly that sort of extra-legal, unofficial and patently officious and offensive behavior – has never been enforced, although referenced as late as 1991 by the Supreme Court. That does not make Kerry’s behavior acceptable, patriotic or defensible. In fact, at a time when everyone from President Trump to America’s national security

Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently told a confidant of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he is considering a second run for the presidency in 2020. Kerry ran unsuccessfully against President George W. Bush in 2004. His comments, reported by the Israeli newspaper Ma´ariv, came during a London discussion about the Middle East peace process with Hussein Agha, a Lebanese academic who is close to Abbas. Kerry, 74, said his advanced age wouldn´t be an impediment to mounting another White House bid, and urged Agha to tell Abbas to ´stay strong´ and ´play for time´

Obama added, “Our democracy, just like any organization, can’t work if, for example, we don’t insist on facts. Like, facts are really useful. We can’t make good decisions
