Has Nancy Pelosi lost control of her conference?

Curtis Ellis tells of vulnerable Dem lawmakers who want Trump trade deal passed


Congress is back in session. We will see if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has completely lost control of her conference.

Pelosi knows House Democrats have to produce something other than made-for-TV movies featuring a supporting cast of superannuated retreads.

The endless impeachment series is a turnoff for the voters who gave her the majority, but it seems the speaker is powerless to change the channel.

USMCA: Dems were for it before they were against it.

Democrats Are Lying About Their Opposition to Trump’s Mexico Trade Deal


In the same way President Bill Clinton gave away hundreds of thousands of jobs to Mexico and Vice President Joe Biden helped send millions more to China, the Democrats vying for their party’s 2020 nomination now plan to outsource and destroy yet another American industry.

I refer to the so-called “progressive” Democrats’ opposition to the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement (USMCA).

Why socialists in Congress are holding up new NAFTA

Curtis Ellis stresses importance of protecting U.S. intellectual property

Private property is a fundamental right in America and a central point of President Trump's America First trade agenda. It figures prominently in the new agreement to replace NAFTA and our trade confrontation with China.

To be blunt, America believes in private property. Other countries don't.

We understand private property is essential to prosperity. What's the point of making, inventing or improving something if someone else can take it from you, sell it as their own and pocket the money.

What Doing Business With China Actually Costs: American Greatness

by Curtis Ellis

Tariffs on Chinese imports have the nabobs of negativism nattering on about how American consumers will have to pay more at the mall this Christmas. These talking heads know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Instead of focusing on who is paying what, they should be asking who are we doing business with.

The Communist regime in Beijing claims it is practicing “socialism with Chinese characteristics,” but in reality it is nothing more than a criminal enterprise.

The media's imaginary Trump-hating farmer

The media's imaginary Trump-hating farmer Curtis Ellis notes headlines about farmers don't comport with reality

The media's never-ending hunt to take down President Trump has them roaming the countryside.

Farmers voted in overwhelming numbers for President Trump in 2016. But we are told they have turned against him, or will soon turn, or are thinking about making a U-turn on a farm road, or something like that depending on which story you read.

The problem is, the reporters can't find a farmer to say anything that matches their pre-written headlines.

When China Runs America: American Greatness

When China Runs America

“American Factory,” a production of Barack and Michelle Obama, offers a warning of where unchecked globalism leads.

The true nature of China’s Communist regime has become increasingly clear, with its cyber-espionage, intellectual property theft and state-subsidized attacks on our industries openly acknowledged by everyone.

Add to that Beijing’s assault on Hong Kong and it’s obvious what’s at stake in our confrontation with China is far more than the price of sports socks at Walmart.  

Want certainty? Get out of China:

Want business 'certainty'? Get out of China Curtis Ellis calls for higher anti-dumping tariffs on oil drilling equipment

Big business wanted certainty. President Trump just gave it to them:

China is no place to do business. Get out now.

To those who've been saying we need to make a deal, any deal, with China to restore certainty, the president made certain this administration will not surrender to China's continuing assault on the American people and our free enterprise system.  

Shutting Down the Outrage Machine: American Greatness

Shutting Down the Outrage Machine

Neil Postman was right about American mass media.   

We’ve seen how the media manufactures the racial strife it then blames on President Trump.

The media’s deliberate amplification of voices that accuse America of being irredeemably racist is but a symptom of a syndrome afflicting our mass communication media.

It is addicted to outrage. And it’s peddling outrage to make addicts of the rest of us, too.

The outrage generator is driven by several factors inherent in today’s electronic mass communications media.

Trump's Energy Renaissance vs. Democrats' Dark Ages

Curtis Ellis compares current energy policies with those of 'green machine'

Victory has a hundred fathers.

President Trump’s economic victory has at least four: tax reform, trade reform, regulatory reform and energy reform.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts, working together synergistically to boost domestic investment, wages and job growth.

And while energy reform comes last in that list, its importance should not be underestimated.

Consider that modern industrial society depends on energy – readily available at an affordable price.
