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.

In a bit of must-see TV, conservative icon and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this Sunday to debate host Brian Stelter on the topic of the media’s liberal bias. As expected, Shapiro wiped the floor with Stelter as he called out CNN for blatantly pushing a gun control agenda and not being objective. After being asked by Stelter to address where he saw the greatest example of liberal media bias, Shapiro zeroed in on their uniform calls for gun control and gun bans. “Well, over the last three weeks, obviously the coverage of the gun

Some school counselors and officials were so concerned about the mental stability of Nikolas Cruz, accused in last month’s Florida school massacre, that they decided to have him forcibly committed more than a year before the shooting.However, the recommendation was never acted upon. Documents in the criminal case against Cruz showed that school officials at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and a sheriff´s deputy recommended in September 2016 that Cruz be involuntarily committed for mental evaluation under Florida´s Baker Act for at least three days, sources confirmed to Fox News on Sunday.

MOSCOW— Early results and an exit poll showed that Vladimir Putin handily won a fourth term as Russia’s president Sunday, adding six years in the Kremlin for the man who has led the world’s largest country for all of the 21st century.The vote was tainted by widespread reports of ballot-box stuffing and forced voting, but the complaints will likely do little to undermine Putin. The Russian leader’s popularity remains high despite his suppression of dissent and reproach from the West over Russia’s increasingly aggressive stance in world affairs and alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election.Putin’s main challenges in the

There is a move afoot to give the White House a formal role in the promulgation of tax regulations which for decades have been written and issued by the IRS and the Department of the Treasury without coordination with or review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Each of us has worked as a staff member in the Executive Office of the President and held senior tax positions at the Treasury, under both political parties. We both agree that placing OMB in charge of interpreting the tax code is a bad idea. During the Reagan administration, OMB and

A 15th century pub reopened its doors today after locals raised more than £1million and used a little-known law to save it from developers. The community saw 470 of its residents club together to raise the total and buy back their beloved pub. Developers bought the Grade-II listed tavern in Southstoke, Somerset in 2016 from a pair of businessman who intended to renovate the pub into flats.The buyer had plans to turn the property into a private residence which sparked anger among residents who bought back the watering hole using the 2011 Localism Act to turn the pub into a

Numerous former “Deep State” operatives, politicians, and media figures united behind former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter in the wake of his termination Friday night. Former CIA Director John Brennan sent an ominous tweet Saturday calling Trump a “disgraced demagogue” who will eventually land “in the dustbin of history.” (Tweet) Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power lauded Brennan’s tweet, then posted one of her own relating an African proverb to McCabe’s firing — “The axe forgets; the tree remembers.” (Tweets) Obama-era former Attorney General Eric Holder was also critical of the decision, calling it “dangerous.”

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

First there was the casual sexism: the reason white women didn’t back her when she ran for president, Hillary Clinton believes, is “a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.” Have you noticed that her sneering always seems to take the same form? She’s become the queen of the contemptuous listicle that tails off into a snarling “whatever.” Remember the formulation in the speech where she came up with the term “basket of deplorables?” “You could put half of Trump´s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Hillary said.

Democratic lawmakers have offered to hire fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe so that he can qualify for his pension. McCabe´s employment was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions less than 48 hours before he would have qualified for his pension, a day that was also his 50th birthday. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., asked McCabe on Twitter to "call him." "I could use a good two-day report on the biggest crime families in Washington, D.C.," he wrote. Pocan was responding to a tweet by MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell, who said if a member of Congress were to hire him

Armed sheriff´s deputies appeared on the scene of the recent school massacre in Florida while kids were still being murdered inside. But the deputies failed to storm the building to apprehend the killer, to rescue the assaulted, to stop the bleeding and to comfort the dying. They failed to do their jobs. Instead, they cowered behind their patrol cars waiting for, well, apparently waiting for the shooting to stop. Some 150 bullets and 17 lives later, it finally did and the killer walked away. Only then did the deputies enter the building. About that, President Donald Trump characteristically said what he thought. He

As free agency kicked off the start of a new football season, the NFL sent a clear message to anyone paying attention: Colin Kaepernick, you´re still not wanted. Probably not ever. Oh, and while we´re at it, it´s pretty clear the owners have every intention of clamping down on any other players who tries to carry on Kaepernick´s legacy. Rattled by another big dip in the television ratings and an increasing number of empty seats, the league seems determined to banish peaceful protest from the playing field. While it´s quite a stretch to say those trends are intimately related —
