Conservative Leaders Tell Department Of Labor To Pull Our Pension Money Out Of Communist China

“The investment of private retirement funds into Chinese companies that do not comply with basic transparency standards, and in many cases rely upon child- and slave-labor, is incompatible with fundamental American values and must be discontinued.” The repugnant practice of investing U.S. pension funds in Communist China makes unwitting private U.S. retirees investors in Chinese companies which use child- and slave-labor, “effectively making individual 401(k) owners or pensioners parties to and profiteers from the exploitation of the victims of such cruel abuse.”

Tell Your Governor To Stop Investing State Pension Funds In Communist China

Our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, sent a letter to the Governors of all 50 states demanding that they end the dangerous practice of investing state worker pension funds in Communist Chinese enterprises.

Wall Street A New Front In The Cold War With Red China

'Woke' Capitalists Sell Out U.S. to China Behind a Mask of Virtue

Ben Weingarten, Real Clear Politics

Embedded in the ESG (environment, social, and governance)-China gambit is an acceptance of the proposition that America is in decline, while China is ascendant. This becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy if Wall Street is intent on downgrading America’s economy, while upgrading China’s. What we see in Wall Street’s devotion to China is the proverbial capitalists selling the Communists the rope with which to hang us. Or, if you will, underwriting the outsourced rope-maker that produces the rope with which to hang ourselves. “ESG for me, but not for thee” is a recipe for undermining America while empowering its worst adversaries.

Larry Kudlow For White House Economic Advisor

Larry Kudlow’s personal relationship with President Trump, his credibility with conservatives and Republicans on and off Capitol Hill, and most importantly, his ability to channel President Trump instead of trying to impose his own ideas make him the ideal candidate for the job of Chairman of the National Economic Council – we strongly urge the President to select Mr. Kudlow for the position without delay.

Whose Side Are You On, President Trump’s Or The NFL’s?

The House GOP’s Only Constituencies Are Washington And Wall Street

The GOP leadership, the lawyers, the lobbyists, the consultant class of the Republican party, and all the big donors don’t understand that these people are angry. … They are saying that John Boehner doesn’t care about them, and all he cares about is the special interests.

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

R's should take a cue from the voters of Virginia’s 7th District and forget about the big banks. Cantor's defeat is the opportunity for the GOP to declare independence from Wall Street. Let the bankers flock to Hillary Clinton and Schumer.

McCarthy Is Worse Than Cantor

Erick Erickson, Red State

The House GOP is ignoring the Cantor defeat as a meaningless anomaly. Kevin McCarthy's will likely be Majority Leader. He's an anti-TEA Party squishy who's pro-amnesty, and not a friend of conservatives. Amnesty is coming.

A Left-Right Convergence?

Patrick Buchanan, Buchanan.org

Both parties now feed at the same K Street and Wall Street troughs. Both have oligarchs contributing tens of millions to parties and politicians who do their bidding. When this happens, We The People lose.

A recent article in POLITICO confirms Richard Viguerie's observation in TAKEOVER that when Big Business claims to “lean” Republican what they really mean is that they lean in favor of Big Government, and don’t really care whether it is run by a Democrat like Hillary Clinton or a Republican like Jeb Bush.
