Trump’s Steel and Aluminum Tariffs


There are a couple of important economic lessons that the American people should learn. I’m going to title one “the seen and unseen” and the other “narrow well-defined large benefits versus widely dispersed small costs.” These lessons are applicable to a wide range of government behavior, but let’s look at just two examples.

Last week, President Donald Trump enacted high tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. Why in the world would the U.S. steel and aluminum industries press the president to levy heavy tariffs? The answer is simple. Reducing the amounts of steel and aluminum that hit our shores enables American producers to charge higher prices. Thus, U.S. steel and aluminum producers will earn higher profits, hire more workers and pay them higher wages. They are the visible beneficiaries of Trump’s tariffs.

Obama Admin Actively Sabotaged Gun Background Check System.

By Cillian Zeal

Testimony by acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday revealed that the Obama administration removed the names of over 500,000 individuals with active arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to The Daily Wire.

The deletion of the names was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who had originally pinned the change on the Trump administration.

“A little-noticed mandate from the Trump administration has cleared the way for some people with outstanding arrest warrants to purchase guns, a change that worries law enforcement officials who say it could be allowing dangerous criminals to arm themselves,” The Journal-Constitution reported last October.

290 Million Deaths and Counting

Here is :Bill Muckler commentary

Author Bill Muckler

The religion of peace, which is not a religion at all, got its start in 630 CE by slaughtering Arabs who didn’t think the way they do. (See my many revealing articles on IJETOF on this webpage):

Muhammad was born in Mecca in 570 CE coming from a noble family and was well-known for his honesty and upright character. According to Muslim belief, at the age of 40, Muhammad was visited by the angel Gabriel while on retreat in a cave near Mecca. The angel recited the first revelations of the Quran and informed him that he is God’s prophet. He is told to call his people to the worship of the one God, but they reacted with hostility and began to persecute him and his followers. This definition tells us all we need to know: Allahu Akbar meaning “God is Greater” or Allah is the one God who is greater than all other Gods.”

Muhammad and his followers endured persecution in Mecca and then in 622 CE they then migrated to the nearby town of Yathrib, later known as Medina, where the people accepted Islam. This marks the “hijrah” or “emigration” and the beginning of the Islamic calendar. Muhammad established an Islamic state in Medina based on the laws revealed in the Quran and the inspired guidance coming to him from God. Eventually he invited other tribes and nations to Islam.

Muhammad and many his followers returned to Mecca in 630 CE. He entered the city peacefully, and eventually all accepted Islam. The prophet then cleared all idols and images out of the Kaaba.

Muhammad Died in 633 C.E.

The Muslim community, upon Muhammad’s death, elected his father-in-law and close associate, Abu Bakr, as caliph, or successor. Abu Bakr’s daughter Aisha was married to Muhammad when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine. She remained with him for nine years until his death.

The Killing Spree Gains a Foothold

The spread of Islam was accomplished by invading areas which did not have a religion and those that were Christian as well. Countries were not established as we know them today. Most of the Middle East was comprised of tribal areas that were self-ruled. These lands were easy pickings for roving bands of crazed barbarians who spread their ideology by forcing men to either “join up” or be “beheaded.” Capturing men and forcing them to watch their wives and children raped and murdered was a common tactic to spread the “religion of peace.”

Muslims entered the area north of Arabia, known as “Sham,” including Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and in Iraq 638 CE. They invaded Egypt in 641 CE, enriched by their conquests and routed the Byzantine army. Thus, began the destruction of Christianity in Egypt then one of the centers of Christianity. Muslims considered their conquest as the liberation of subjugated people, since in most instances they were under oppressive rule.

There was no stopping this vicious wave of Islam as they murdered, raped and plundered across North Africa in 655 CE and into Europe, all in the name of peace.
Imam Ali was killed in 661 CE bringing an end the rule of the four “righteous caliphs”: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali. This also marked the beginning of the Umayyad rule.

Much Has Been Said About Islam Being a Religion of Peace

There is so much to say about this perverse entity masquerading as a religion that is essentially a political, cultural, economic theocracy of domination and rule. We have been duped by this perversity and have become weak and willing to accept this as the “New Muslim Normal.”

California Has Become A Disgraceful State

By —— Bio and ArchivesMarch 10, 2018

At one time, California was the envy of America, attracting people from around the nation to move to a state offering opportunity and the chance to pursue ambitious dreams. With scenic beauty, the Pacific Ocean coastline, the major cities of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California recruited entrepreneurs looking for economic growth. As the home of Hollywood and multitudes of celebrities, California presented an enticing potential to enjoy “lifestyles of the rich and famous.”

California has become an economic and cultural disaster

Today, California has become an economic and cultural disaster. The state is home to over 114,000 homeless people, one quarter of the total in the nation. In San Francisco, a health crisis has developed as the homeless have created a mess in the downtown area, littering it with fecal matter, spent needles and piles of trash.

The droughts have led to misguided water regulations imposed by environmentalists and liberal government bureaucrats. These officials also love to burden state residents and corporations with higher taxes. As a result, people and businesses are fleeing a state beset with too many regulations, tax rates that are not competitive with neighboring states and an array of other insufferable liberal policies. Even a sizable portion of the film industry has moved from Hollywood to other states offering tax incentives and a better business climate.

California officials have implemented high tax rates to fund an array of expensive services for an ever-growing population of illegal aliens. Their statewide elected politicians, such as Governor Jerry Brown, support open borders and sanctuary status for illegal aliens. In fact, the entire state has become a sanctuary for those who break our immigration laws.

Americans should never forget Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal alien who had been deported five times to Mexico, who shot 32-year-old Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier and ran away from the scene as she died in the arms of her father. Several months before the July 1, 2015 incident, Lopez-Sanchez was in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after serving a federal prison sentence. However, San Francisco Police wanted him on a drug related warrant, so he was transferred to their control. Unfortunately, the San Francisco Police subsequently released him and did not bother to notify federal authorities. This is due to their refusal to honor “immigration detainers” that San Francisco officials believe is a violation of the Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.

800 illegal aliens evaded capture

As a result of their desire to protect the rights of non-citizens, San Francisco officials allowed an illegal alien back onto the streets. Sadly, that decision ultimately cost one young woman her life. The tragic death produced a national outcry, but it did not lead to any changes in California policies. The Steinle killing was not an isolated incident as throughout California, local and state officials refuse to work with federal authorities to combat the out-of-control problem of illegal immigration. These misguided policies prevent the Trump administration from taking effective action.

Over the last week, California was in the news again for the wrong reasons. The liberal Democrat Mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf, issued a warning to illegal aliens that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were conducting raids in the city. She asked residents to “protect” these illegal aliens, who she called the “most vulnerable” residents of Oakland.

As a result, 800 illegal aliens evaded capture and the ICE agents were only able to apprehend 232 lawbreakers. These individuals were not Boy Scouts, in fact, 180 of them had criminal records and 115 of them had convictions for serious offenses such as child sex crimes, weapons charges or assault.

ICE was doing the community a favor by removing criminal threats and protecting innocent citizens. Regrettably, the Oakland Mayor decided to give support to illegal aliens and violent criminals instead of law abiding taxpayers.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the California laws “unjust, unfair and unconstitutional.”

At a press opportunity on Thursday, President Trump denounced her actions and called it “a disgrace” that she undercut the ability of ICE agents to conduct raids.  The acting Director of ICE, Tom Homan, labeled her comments “a whole new low, to intentionally warn criminals that law enforcement is coming.”

Fortunately, the Trump administration acted in federal court against the rogue state of California. On Tuesday night, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit which claimed that three state laws are illegal and are pre-empted by federal law. The laws prevent employers and state officials from cooperating with federal officials on cases involving illegal immigrants.

In his speech announcing the lawsuit, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the California laws “unjust, unfair and unconstitutional.” He also condemned the actions of the Mayor of Oakland by asking “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda?”

These are good first steps by the Department of Justice, but they are not enough. The Attorney General should also file charges against the Mayor of Oakland personally. It is time that these California elected officials face legal consequences for their despicable behavior and their arrogant flouting of federal law.
