Conservatives Applaud Trump’s American Workers First Executive Order

In the face of opposition from Big Business and the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis, and lobbying by some of his own White House staff who secretly and not-so-secretly share their globalist views, this latest Executive Order limiting immigration is another concrete example of Donald Trump keeping faith with America’s forgotten men and women.

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.

Yesterday The S&P 500 Erased Its Losses For 2020 – Liberals Puzzled

The economy and the stock market have come roaring back because the government is getting out of the way – ending lockdowns and promising more deregulation. As obvious as this is, it apparently surprised Democrats, such as New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. Plus, good news for America, especially good economic news, is bad news for Democrats, so the media continues to downplay the good news.

Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies

Our friends at FreedomWorks and the Committee to Unleash Prosperity yesterday announced the publication of their new report, Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies. It will come as no surprise that only one Democrat governor earned an "A".  If your Governor did not earned an “A” or a “B” call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Civil Disobedience Against Unconstitutional Lockdowns Spreading

Business owners and citizens wishing to exercise their constitutional rights have begun to actively defy the arbitrary and capricious lockdown orders imposed mostly by Democrat governors, city and county officials. Some, such as Maine restauranteur Rick Savage, have been quickly slammed with suspension of their state licenses and other political retaliation. Others, such as California fitness center owner Sean Covell, are readying legal challenges should the state attempt to continue to enforce its unconstitutional orders.

How Democrats Ignored Science To Kill Thousands Of Senior Citizens

New York, California, New Jersey and other liberal states instituted rules that forced nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients. The next time Democrats claim to be “the Party of science” we hope someone asks them if they believe in the germ theory of disease and if so, why their leading governors sent thousands of coronavirus-infected people to spread those germs to elderly nursing home patients, killing more than 10,000 of them.

Trump Should Not Let Red China Keep Laughing At Us

Our friend Frank Gaffney has proposed a proven avenue by which President Trump can block another Red Chinese raid on American capital markets.  We urge CHQ readers to call the White House (202-456-1111) to tell President Trump it's time to invoke the International Economic Emergency Powers Act to prohibit US military and US government civilian retirement funds from being invested in Communist China by Blackrock’s Larry Fink.

79 conservative leaders have posted an open letter to BlackRock, Inc. CEO Larry Fink, opposing his plan to leverage BlackRock's $7 trillion portfolio to promote Leftwing causes that are entirely unmoored from the interests of corporate shareholders. You can add your name to the list of those opposed to putting the interests of Red China and Leftwing social engineering ahead of shareholder value by going to LarryFink.com and signing the letter.

Meet Your New Master: Blackrock’s Larry Fink

We urge every CHQ reader and friend to review Frank Gaffney’s article “Year Of The Rat Fink – Investment Firms Selling Out America” and then call your Representative and Senators. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), make that call to demand that Congress prohibit US military and US government civilian retirement funds from being invested in Communist China by Blackrock’s Larry Fink.

Please Mr. President Not Another Infrastructure Spending Bill

What’s needed now is not a new gravy train for unions, Democrat state and local governments and the various potential beneficiaries of government largess who are already deploying their lobbyists to Capitol Hill. What is needed is a plan to get Americans back to the jobs they had and the businesses they ran before these government-imposed lockdowns upended their lives.

Working Hard Versus Hardly Working

Stephen Moore, CNS News

A chart from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the trend in labor force participation and the unemployment rate adjusted for labor force dropouts from 2009-2019. The strange thing about the Obama recovery was more jobs and less willing workers. When a person isn't looking for a job, for whatever reason, they do not get labeled as unemployed. The joke a few years ago was that Obama would shrink the unemployment rate to zero through the magic formula of driving millions out of the workforce. In a world where everyone is living off of welfare or a trust fund, and no one is looking for a job — there are officially no unemployed people. Under Trump, we are experiencing the best of all worlds.

More Bad News For Democrats – Record Employment In All Demographics

Democrat presidential candidates, such as Sen. Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders are all lying about the economy. The reality is, not only are a record number of people employed, with fewer working a second job, hourly wages for production and nonsupervisory workers have risen 11% increase since Trump took office.

Gallup: Trump Economic Approval Highest Yet at 56 Percent

The Gallup Organization reports Trump's rating for handling the economy, 56 percent, is the highest of his presidency and the highest of his approval ratings on any of 14 domestic and foreign issues tested in the latest Gallup poll. Americans' approval of his handling of unemployment is nearly as high, at 54 percent.

Trump using American capitalism to lift up the poor

Star Parker, Boston Herald

Governors in the 50 states were asked to identify their most economically distressed ZIP codes, neighborhoods where, for instance, poverty stands at twice the national average, to qualify as Opportunity Zones. More than 8,700 ZIP codes have been designated, and they qualify for tax-preferred investment that, by estimates from the Treasury department, could amount to $100 billion. This is all private investment, which can flow into these troubled areas, that because of preferred tax treatment — forgiveness of capital gains taxes — would not otherwise be made.

2018, the year of the worker

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

If 2017 was the year of the investor with stock market gains of more than 25 percent during President Trump’s first year in office, 2018 was undoubtedly the year of the American worker. There has never been in most of our entire lifetimes a better time to be looking for a job than today. Unemployment is nonexistent in almost all parts of the country. Wages are rising for the first time in two decades. Americans are again the most productive and among the highest-paid workers in the world. Anthony Scaramucci, a former Trump adviser, titles his new book: “The Blue Collar President.” That is exactly what Mr. Trump is: The working man and woman’s CEO.

Federal Reserve Policies Attacking Working Families

Why would the Fed want to do anything to slow the record-breaking run in housing values, slow wage growth and encourage a Bear stock market that will strip more wealth from the retirement accounts and college funds of America’s working families?

The Fed Steps On Middle America Again

Whether there is a political motive, or simply a Wall Street over Main Street bias one thing is certain: In the alternative universe where Wall Street’s Masters of the Universe and the mandarins who control America’s Federal Reserve Bank live, good economic news for America’s middle-income families is something to be feared.

Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

Federal Reserve Steps On Trump Economic Boom… Again

President Trump campaigned on policies that would boost the economy to 4 percent – or greater – growth. Now, just when America’s hard-pressed middle-income families are beginning to see the benefits of Trump’s policies, is not the time for the Fed to cool the economy.

Will The Fed Stomp On The Trump Economic Boom Right Before The Midterm Election?

An increase In the Fed interest rate could trigger a jump in unemployment claims and a drop in the stock market right before the election, quashing the efforts of the GOP to expand their majority in the Senate and hold or expand their majority in the House by campaigning on the booming economy.
