Rick Manning: Hold China Accountable for the Coronavirus

“Communist China is an existential threat to freedom, and Americans need to stand with President Trump to hold them accountable.” That is the name of the new petition on WhiteHouse.gov letting President Trump know that Americans have his back when it comes to dealing with China.

Manning: Globalists Want Solar Tariffs When They Bailout Obama’s Foreign Cronies

If you heard that a Chinese company, controlled by a hedge fund, based in an offshore tax haven, had teamed up with a German company funded by a Qatari wealth fund, the same people behind Al-Jeezera, the Islamic propaganda wing, in order to file a petition at the International Trade Commission (ITC), would you believe their motivation is to help the American factory worker?

Manning: Will Schumer Funding Win Open GOP Eyes?

Chuck Schumer’s victory on the 2017 Omnibus funding bill will hopefully serve as a wake-up call to Congressional Republicans who have not adapted to the reality that they now control the White House with a President who expects that his priorities will be funded in September.

Obama’s Internet Endangerment

For all intents and purposes, the Chinese government has chosen to put the tools in place to break the Internet any time they choose. And I’m confident that Secretary Chertoff would agree that in today’s environment, the Chinese government is going to proceed according to their interests.

Mob Attacks Trump Supporters, and It’s Trump’s Fault?

Trump supporters coming out of a rally, in the city made famous in the 1960s by Dionne Warwick, were attacked, punched, egged and abused while the San Jose police department largely stood and watched, perhaps having gotten word in advance to not intervene on behalf of the law-abiding supporters of the presumptive GOP nominee.

Breaking the Primaries

Donald Trump’s Health Care Dance

Donald Trump’s past flirtation with a nationalized government run health care system brings this question starkly into play.

Moving Fast Track on Blind, Irrational Faith

However, before they vote, Republicans need to understand one thing. The deals they cut for negotiating objectives, increased transparency and immigration protections are meaningless. After all these years of being penned and phoned, could Congress still believe that President Obama would push for a deal that reined in his power?
