Is the Trump economy winning too much?

by Curtis Ellis

Candidate Donald J. Trump said if he were president, the United States would win again.

We’d be winning so much, he promised, people would be tired of winning and say “please, stop, I can’t take it any more.”

That’s proven to be yet another promise President Trump made that’s come true.

The latest economic figures show unemployment claims dropped to the lowest level since 1969that’s a half century ago.

While the Trump administration works to stem the raging epidemic of opioid addiction, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has a plan to make it worse.

He calls it the Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act, S. 469. This legislation would open our borders to the free flow of drugs – all drugs – from Canada and other countries.

Exclusive: Curtis Ellis calls on Senate to confirm Kathy Kraninger as head of CFPB

President Trump has proven adept at taming the regulatory state.

One of his early executive orders directed the bureaucracy to eliminate three regulations for every new one put on the books.

That has succeeded beyond everyone’s wildest dreams, with 22 regulations going into the shredder for every new entry in the Federal Register.

CHANGING OF THE GUARD

The moment President Trump accepted Scott Pruitt’s resignation from the EPA, the knives were out for the man who will take over for him, Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

But the attacks say more about the myopia of the media than they do about the man they seek to vilify.

To spare you skipping to the 27th paragraph of most the 32 million stories that come up when you Google “Andrew Wheeler,” here’s the man’s record:

The Hill: 'Silent Trump supporter' now global, and so is the Red Hen

The 'silent Trump supporter' has gone global, and so has the Red Hen

The 2016 election gave us the “Silent Trump Supporter” — Trump voters who would not reveal their true sympathies to pollsters.

This was a great mystery at the time, but seeing now how Trump supporters are routinely denigrated, harassed and vilified, their silence was understandable if not prescient.

In 2018, the Silent Trump Supporter has gone global.

GLOBALIZATION IS KILLING AMERICAN JOBS – NOT TARIFFS Exclusive: Curtis Ellis says it's international consolidation that's hurt communities

President Trump has declared the United States must have the ability to produce aluminum and steel here at home. He backed up his words with action and imposed an import tax, or tariff, to protect America’s strategic industries from being totally wiped out by imported metals.

That has Canadian and European brewers griping that they will have to pay a penny more for the aluminum that goes into a six-pack.

WASHINGTON, JEFFERSON, JACKSON INFORM TRUMPISM Exclusive: Curtis Ellis stresses icons' belief U.S. needs both agriculture, manufacturing

By Curtis Ellis

Does America need factories?

That question arises time and again throughout the history of the republic, and it is still with us today.

The British said no. They believed the colonies’ “comparative advantage” came from producing ore and crops, the raw materials that would feed Britain’s mills and the workers who toiled in them.

By Curtis Ellis

Major media are in full outrage mode after President Trump refused to sign the joint statement the Group of Seven ritualistically issued at the conclusion of its summit.
