Boycott Goodyear Tires

We feel sorry for Goodyear’s 60,000 employees who work for idiots, and for the company’s shareholders who saw their stock nosedive because they employ idiots to manage their company, but President Trump is right: This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now! #BoycottGoodyear

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. We applaud this effort and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Governor’s office to demand that their state worker pension funds divest themselves of all investments in Communist China.

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

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the President use his executive authority to prohibit companies owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, the Red Chinese government, the People’s Liberation Army of China and other Chinese military and intelligence entities from accessing U.S. capital markets.

Beijing Biden Attacks Trump On China

According to research posted on the BeijingBiden.com website, since 1979, Joe Biden has been a key supporter and enabler of Communist China; a fact he often brags about and highlights in interviews and speeches, seemingly oblivious to the economic damage his positions have inflicted on America and American Workers. And now, Beijing Biden has the gall to attack Donald Trump as being weak on China.

James Hooley: China’s raid on the Tongass National Forest chops American jobs and profits

James Hooley, Assistant to President Ronald Reagan, and a Senior Political Advisor to President George H.W. Bush and Senator Robert Dole, makes the case that expanded logging in the Tongass National Forest will benefit the Chinese economy to the detriment of American small businesses, workers and taxpayers.

End The Sweetheart Deal Joe Biden Gave The Chinese Communists

Since 2013, through a sweetheart deal negotiated by then-Vice President Joe Biden, Chinese companies have been allowed to participate in U.S. stock and bond exchanges without having to fully comply with the same Sarbanes-Oxley Act accounting practices and risk disclosure required of American companies. Now the Committee on the Present Danger: China has launched a campaign demanding the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board:cancel the agreement.

US Must Take Back Pharma Production From China

Rachel Bovard, Daily Caller

It’s worth exploring how to restore America’s critical pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities. With regard to China in particular, it has exposed just how dependent we are on an adversary for the basic health resources of our population.Whatever the approach, the coronavirus outbreak has made clear that this is a problem that must be taken seriously. America has become too reliant on an adversary for fundamental needs. And because of it, China has the ability to cut off the export of critical drugs on which millions of Americans rely. They’ve already made the threat, and they know it’s a credible one. This should never be allowed to happen again.

Joe Biden Is China’s Choice for President

The Democratic Party has always been weak on national security when it comes to China. But at least some prominent Democrats loudly criticized Beijing for its atrocious human-rights record and its theft of American jobs, well before Donald Trump helped form a new national consensus on China. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have been longstanding China trade hawks, even socialist Bernie Sanders has been a reliable critic. And Joe Biden? Well, he’s on China’s side — not yours.

Nancy Pelosi's stall tactics hurt America's economy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mrs. Pelosi’s cynical strategy to change the USMCA would bust the trade deal wide open and kill it. Trying to renegotiate a trade deal that has been years in the making is like putting toothpaste back in the tube. Opening up one section of the law makes every section negotiable. Mrs. Pelosi should put America first by putting the political games aside and bringing USCMA to a vote urgently. Democrats promised in 2018 elections that they could govern the country. Obstruction is not governing and blocking free trade deals is no way to keep the Trump economic boom going. I hate to think that may be the point of her political tactics.

American Blunder: Throwing Open Our Markets to China

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Among the epochal blunders America has committed since the end of the Cold War, three stand out. The first was our disastrous plunge into the Middle East to create regimes oriented to the West. The second was the expansion of NATO to the front porch of Russia, driving the largest nation on earth, and one of its most formidable nuclear powers, into the arms of China. The third was to throw open America’s markets to Chinese goods on favorable terms, which led to the enrichment and empowerment of a regime whose long-term threat to U.S. interests and values is as great as was that of the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

The August Jobs Report Is Not 'Mixed' It's Yuuge

Optimism is of course key to business expansion and based the third quarter’s Small Business Optimism Index, released mid-August by the National Federation of Independent Business, and today's employment figures, the American Small Business sector -- by itself the third-largest economy in the world -- remains very optimistic about the Trump economy.

Is the Fed Meddling in Our Elections?

The Federal Reserve isn’t the only Deep State institution that would like to affect the 2020 election in opposition to President Trump – Silicon Valley comes quickly to mind as an equally malign influence – however, as our friend Dr. Ron Paul observed in a recent  column, they are not a state within a state in the same way that the Federal Reserve is.

Trump Is Right on the China Threat

Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire

The United States must be pursuing a thorough strategy of opposition to China's ambitions. Trump seems to understand this. But if he fails to articulate that to the American people, his economic war with China will fail. That's because if the American people are asked to shoulder an economic burden without being informed as to the rationale or the cost, they will rightly buck. Trump hasn't explained that the burden exists, let alone why the American people should shoulder it. With that said, at least Trump recognizes the threat China represents. The chattering class has ignored that threat, to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

Media Talking The Economy Into A Recession To Defeat Trump

From our perspective we think Ainsley Earhardt of Fox and Friends had it right when she laid the blame for the growing talk of an economic recession on the media's attitude against Trump. “They do not want him to win again and they don’t like that the economy is doing well, apparently," said Ms. Earhardt.

Trump Bets His Presidency on Tariffs as a Recession Looms

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump seeks to throw out a free trade policy that, rooted in 19th-century ideology rather than U.S. national interests, threw open American markets to the world and produced, over three decades, $12 trillion in trade deficits and a loss of 70,000 factories and five million manufacturing jobs. The weapon Trump is using to stop this looting is tariffs, a price of admission into the U.S. market. Trump is using tariffs to coerce China to stop cheating on the trade rules we have established and grant us the same access to her markets as Chinese producers have to American markets. And he is betting his presidency he can pull it off.

Why Trump's trade triumphs could be the path victory in 2020

Richard Manning, Fox News

With almost 500,000 new manufacturing jobs created in the United States since he took office, President Trump can proudly stand on his policies which are beginning the revitalization of America with some of the latest high-tech, advanced manufacturing factories in the world. While America still has a long way to go to restore our manufacturing sector, President Trump’s America First trade policy is working to rebuild our nation’s economy, creating the economic and political environment where good paying jobs are returning and the average wage of the American worker is on the rise. And that’s a record that any president would be proud to run on.

Hot Take: Trump Announces Reelection

President Trump’s conscious or unconscious decision to equate conservative ideas, policies and values with Americanism, in contrast to the Democrats’ radical socialism, may be his most enduring contribution to American political discourse. It is certain that the core ideas that the Democratic Party has now embraced have no precedent in American constitutional liberty and only Donald Trump would be unafraid to call them un-American.

Tariffs Are Economic Patriotism, Putting Americans First

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Tariffs were the taxes that made America great. They were the taxes relied upon by the first and greatest of our early statesmen, before the coming of the globalists Woodrow Wilson and FDR. Tariffs, to protect manufacturers and jobs, were the Republican Party's path to power and prosperity in the 19th and 20th centuries, before the rise of the Rockefeller Eastern liberal establishment and its embrace of the British-bred heresy of unfettered free trade. A tariff is a tax, but its purpose is not just to raise revenue but to make a nation economically independent of others, and to bring its citizens to rely upon each other rather than foreign entities.

The Chinese Tortoise and the American Hare

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

The West chronically underestimates Asians, as the Russians found out at Port Arthur, the Americans at Pearl Harbor and the Yalu River, the British at Singapore, and so forth. It is fanciful to believe that any kind of American pressure can destabilize, let alone dislodge, the present regime within any calculable time horizon. But we can regain technological leadership and prove the superiority of our way of life, and degrade the credibility of the Chinese Communist Party over time. China can innovate, but we can innovate much better. We need to return with a vengeance to the strategies that won the Cold War.
