President Trump Tweets Secretary Ross
Reevaluating EU Trade Deals….

Conservative Tree House, by Sundance

Original Article

Just a short post to reflect upon. We have consistently stated the #1 reason for opposition to President Trump is financial (ie. economic); “There are Trillions at stake“. Everyone admits the past 40+ years of U.S. trade deals have resulted in the massive export of U.S. wealth via jobs and manufacturing gains within other nations. The financial beneficiaries of those prior trade positions were: Wall Street, multinational corporations and multinational banks. The losers of prior trade priorities was the U.S. middle-class. (Tweet) So ask yourself, friends and family this very important question: If prior U.S. trade policies resulted in the

I had a quarterly meeting with my financial advisors this morning. As we went over the excellent results since early Dec, a lot of political and economic issues were discussed, too. They were very impressed with Wilbur Ross, not at all worried that Cohen was gone, and entirely unconcerned about the tariff situation. The wife and I earned more on our IRAs and other investments last year than when we were both working at highly paid jobs. THAT is a great economy, plus a lifetime of saving, and skilled advisors.

Their view was that the expected exchange rate adjustment which rebalances the trade imbalance situation (in an ideal, truly free market world money exchange market) has been short circuited by the Chinese currency manipulation of the yuan exchange rates, keeping them artificially low, causing serious distortions in the world trade balances. Tariffs, real or just as a hammer to get concessions from China, will help correct for the Chinese massive cheating on the currency markets if implimented, or force them to stop it, letting free market forces sort it out.

They were amazed at the performance of the economy since Trump was elected, and even if there was a huge correction now, the situation would still be sunny. They pointed out that the removal of destructive regulations is a permanent tailwind for manufacturing, and has not yet fully come into force.

Thank you, President Trump. My retirement is much more comfortable now than when The Zero was smashing our economy. I am sure that there are millions more in the same situation.

Winning an Olympic gold medal is up there in terms of life achievements but for the U.S. women’s hockey team goalie, a personal note from U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was pretty “cool” too. (Photo) Goaltender Maddie Rooney clinched the gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang with a shootout victory against Canada. Rooney stopped 29 of 31 shots by Canada and four out of six in a shootout during the Olympic gold-medal game. Following the epic win, Rooney’s position on her Wikipedia page was changed to “United States Secretary of Defense.” (Tweets) This apparently prompted the note from the

The publisher of former FBI Director James Comey’s forthcoming book is taking extreme measures to ensure the details of the memoir remain secret until it hits shelves, according to a report. Flatiron Books has implemented an electronic system to allow editors and agents access to drafts only if they have a password, Politico reported. The memoir is also kept under a code name, making it more difficult for staffers not working on the project to find it. Sources told Politico employees at warehouses Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” will be shipped from are facing requests to sign nondisclosure agreements. Books

Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said it´s "sexist" for Republicans to make House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) an issue in their campaigns."This election was not about Nancy Pelosi," Crowley told a news conference on Wednesday. He spoke the day after Democrat Conor Lamb won the special congressional race in western Pennsylvania. "Conor Lamb really localized the issue," Crowley said. "The attempt here to nationalize it by the Republicans -- I think they need to get a new game book. The attempts to use Nancy Pelosi, it´s failing them at this point. And I think,

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

As y´all know, my wife Mary and I have been on the road with Conservative Campaign Committee working to elect Rick Saccone for Congress in Pennsylvania. In response to our final Facebook push to get out the vote, some conservatives and Republicans said they hoped Saccone would lose because they still hate Trump.I pray that God will open these patriots´ eyes to see the big picture. Our country as founded was teetering on the edge of destruction.

UniParty At Work–Paul Ryan SuperPac

It’s well known that Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan doesn’t want to be in an actual leadership position; and it’s also well known -enhanced by the campaign, and victory, of Donald Trump- that Republicans did not want to win the majority position and face having to reveal their true UniParty agenda. The evidence of this UniParty positioning has been staring the electorate in the face, repeatedly and brutally, since candidate Donald Trump actually campaigned on key tenets of the Republican party and found himself being openly opposed by GOP leadership. Now, a stunning discovery surfaces of Paul Ryan’s

As an overcast day ended in the heart of "the resistance," President Trump´s motorcade tucked into the Francisco Street entrance of the Wilshire Grand skyscraper. There was no grand entry, or at least I missed it, standing behind Secret Service agents awaiting his arrival. Still, the hotel inside — the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown — had all the charming excesses that our 45th president might desire. The building´s interior decorator told this to my colleague Thomas Curwen about his inspiration for the steakhouse: "We wanted French opulence and good taste to meet with a gritty California scene."

Why Won´t Barack Obama Go Away?

Why do those who criticize Donald Trump for not being a "traditional" president fawn over President Obama not being a "traditional" post-presidential citizen? I would say Michelle and Barack Obama are back in the news, but they´ve never left the news since the 22nd Amendment mercifully exiled them from the Oval Office last year. When President Clinton took the oath of office in 1992, President George H.W. Bush went away. When President George W. Bush assumed power in 2000, President Clinton went away (until the prospect of being the first gentleman came a-knockin´). When President Obama placed his hand on

The New York Times has called the Pennsylvania House special election in favor of candidate Conor Lamb, saying the Democrat´s lead "appears insurmountable." Lamb had declared victory in the race to fill the seat in the Pennsylvania district early Wednesday morning, but most media outlets have yet to call the tight race. Lamb currently holds a less-than-700-vote lead over RepublicaRick Saccone in the traditionally red district, with all precincts reporting.Saccone has thus far declined to concede the race, and the GOP says they may seek a recount. Shortly before midnight, Saccone told reporters "it´s not over yet." Lamb declared victory at his

The FBI office that handles employee discipline has recommended firing the bureau’s former deputy director over allegations that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misled investigators when asked about it — though Justice Department officials are still reviewing the matter and have not come to a final decision, a person familiar with the case said. The recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee. McCabe was

Excuses: While traveling in India over the weekend, Hillary Clinton was still trying to fix blame for her election loss 16 months ago. That is, fix blame somewhere other than her own dismal campaign. But every time she does so, she manages to expose just why it is that she did lose. While in India, Clinton blamed married women for not being able to stand up to their husbands and vote correctly. "We don´t do well with married, white women," she said, because of "ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should." Then she

Rigid sexual orientations have defined the preference of men and women for decades; however, a new study is attempting to do away with strict definitions of sexuality. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, argues that there’s no such thing as a “straight” man or woman. Rather, people operate on a spectrum. Researchers showed men and women different kinds of pornographic material. Rather than relying on self-reporting, the study looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal. The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and

President Trump´s new pick to lead the CIA previously ran a secret prison, where human rights groups say she oversaw the torture of detainees. Trump said Deputy Director Gina Haspel would replace incumbent Mike Pompeo, who the President tapped to be his new Secretary of State on Tuesday after axing Rex Tillerson. She´ll be the first woman to head the clandestine agency if the Senate confirms her nomination. The nomination is expected to ruffle feathers, however, given her past assignments. Haspel oversaw one of the CIA´s first so-called "black sites" - or secret overseas prisons - in Thailand, where detainees

With all but two out of 593 precincts reporting, Democrat Conor Lamb clings to an 847 vote lead over Republican Rick Saccone in the special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. Lamb has 111,875 votes to Saccone’s 111,028 votes, according to the Pennsylvania Secretary of State’s website as of 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Allegheny County’s absentee ballots are included in that count, but the absentee ballots in the three other counties in the district have yet to be counted: 1,195 in Washington County, 1,808 in Westmoreland County, and 203 in Greene County, for a total of 3,204 absentee ballots yet to be counted.

Students across the nation Wednesday staged a mass walkout to protest gun violence — exactly one month after the massacre at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Leading the charge were surviving students from the Parkland school, where confessed shooter Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire with an AR-15 rifle, killing 17 people. Two walkouts were scheduled there, with school officials and student leaders encouraging students to remain on campus and walk the football field with teachers out of safety concerns, according to the Los Angeles Times. “The mood, much like the weather this morning, is cold but it’s hard and
