US and China step up steel talks to avert trade war

China and the US ramped up talks on steel amid threats from President Donald Trump to impose new curbs on imports of the metal in the name of US national security. The intensified deliberations are part of the "Comprehensive Economic Dialogue" between Mr Trump's team and their Chinese counterparts in Washington, which began this week.

MAXINE 2020? Waters appearance in NH on Sunday

Is 78-year-old "Auntie" Maxine Waters seriously going to make a run for the White House in 2020?
Speculation is increasing as it's revealed the California congresswoman and darling of Trump haters nationwide will be making an appearance in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Sunday.

Why DACA Must End

Last week's stunning move by Congressmen Randy Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) and Peter Aguilar (D-AZ) to sneak into the FY18 Financial Services and General Government spending bill a provision allowing DACA-amnesty recipients to qualify for federal employment no doubt has even a lot of amnesty-supporters scratching their heads. Not only is most federal employment out of bounds even for legal immigrants, those joining public service are expected to clear a full background check, have a clean record, and swear an oath to the Constitution; all things illegal-alien beneficiaries of the former president's unlawful DACA program clearly should have trouble with.

Tighter labor market appears to be leading to better pay for workers making the least. For the first time in years, pay for lowest-income Americans is rising faster than for other groups. Weekly pay for earners at the lowest 10th percentile of the wage scale rose at a faster rate last quarter.

The Fifth American War

The country is coming apart, and the advocates of radical egalitarianism are winning. The wars between Trump, the media, the deep state, and the progressive party - replete with charges and counter-charges of scandal, collusion, and corruption - are merely symptoms of a much larger fundamental and growing divide between Americans that is reaching a dangerous climax. On four prior occasions in American history the country nearly split apart, as seemingly irreconcilable cultural, economic, political, social, geographical, and demographic fault lines opened a path to hatred and violence.

End the Senate Cloture Rule, Pass Bills By Simple Majority

The Washington elite excuses every failure to drain the swamp by claiming that no significant legislation can be passed without the support of sixty senators, something made impossible by partisan rancor. Respecting this sixty-vote threshold is supposedly essential to respecting a "228-year-long tradition" in the Senate, an element of our Constitutional system of checks and balances.
