CHINA'S STRATEGY OF GLOBAL WAR BY OTHER MEANS

Curtis Ellis on Beijing's status as 'world's largest provider of export subsidies'

Classical Chinese military strategy says the best general wins the war without engaging troops on the battlefield.

This informs Beijing’s economic aggression against the U.S. – bankrupting America’s industries will cripple the U.S. militarily without firing a shot.

As part of that campaign, Beijing subsidizes its state-owned and state-controlled companies to give them an advantage over American competitors that play by profit-and-loss free-market rules.

By Curtis Ellis

By Curtis Ellis

The Democrats are feeling their oats after taking over the House.

Now that they’re in charge, no policy proposal is too radical or crackpot for the resurgent Democrats to peddle it as the Magic Elixir Tonic to cure all ills.

Step right up, folks! Ninety percent tax rate just like the 1950s! Welfare and free money for all! Imagine there’s no countries – let’s get rid of borders altogether!

Trump stands up for union jobs, Dems shut them down

By Curtis Ellis

The party now favors globalist giants over 'the little guy'

 

If Rip Van Winkle woke up today, he’d be shocked by the role reversal our political parties have undergone.

President Trump supports labor unions while Democrats betray the very people who built their party.

For example, the president and his EPA nominee, Andrew Wheeler, are defending union jobs at small refineries threatened with bankruptcy by an EPA program that benefits Wall Street traders.

Trump Shows the American Way Works

By Curtis Ellis

Looking back, we see 2018 was the year out-of-work Americans found a job and working Americans got a raise.
