US Left Follows China's Lead with Social Credit Score System

Leftists Follow China's Lead with Social Credit Score System

Communist China’s social credit score system is coming to America.

In China, citizens who do not meet the party’s guidelines are denied access to banking, transportation, apartments and college.

This system applies to corporations as well. Companies that don’t tow the party line see their ability to do business curtailed.

Now, a version of that is beginning to take hold in the United States.

The Democratic Party's chief constituency: The Deep State

Curtis Ellis says care for 'working people' now extends only to government workers

 

The Democratic Party is the party of the deep state.

Democrats have long been called the party of big government.

But what we're seeing in today's party is of an entirely different order.

Rather than simply proposing more "big government" programs "to serve the people," the party now exists to serve the government itself.

Take for example the House Intelligence Oversight Committee, please.

Clint Eastwood Slams the FBI

Clint Eastwood Ahead of the Curve on the FBI

Sharp-eyed viewers will catch the foundational message of “Richard Jewell” in the caption on a poster hanging on the wall in a defense attorney’s office: “The government scares me more than terrorists.”

The week President Trump's 'America First' policy prevailed

Curtis Ellis cites the ways U.S. has been successful throughout the world

We have seen a complete and total vindication of President Trump's America First trade policy.

The president struck a new deal with Canada and Mexico to replace the disastrous NAFTA deal.

He used tariffs to wring concessions from Red China while most of the tariffs remain in place.

President Trump has the Export-Import Bank giving our exporters the ammunition they need to fight subsidies China and other nations use to win customers abroad.

Progressivism and Globalism: A Double Dose of Bad

By Curtis Ellis

We are stuck with the administrative state, but we’ve lost the industries the bureaucrats were supposed to manage.  

Progressivism is bad enough. Add globalism to progressivism and it’s 100 times worse.

Thanks to that toxic cocktail, we are now saddled with a bureaucratic administrative state that can’t even do the job it was advertised to do.

Consider the historical record and our current predicament.

The reformers of the Progressive era championed safety standards for food, drugs, and labor.

Trump blue-collar economic miracle vs. Democrats’ dangerous fantasyland

Curtis Ellis says the choice could not be clearer

The choice could not be clearer.

The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs in November. The unemployment rate fell to 3.5%, the lowest level in half a century.

The number of Americans working rose to 158.6 million, a record high and the sixth consecutive record.

Wages keep increasing. Hourly earnings for private-sector workers are 3.1% higher over the year. Wages are growing at a faster rate for production workers than for managers.

Are Cheap Imports Making Cheap Americans?

By Curtis Ellis

It’s well past time to ask whether procuring cheap imported consumer goods should be the goal of our foreign trade policy and if it’s the best way to raise Americans’ standard of living.  

Another tranche of tariffs on Chinese imports is set to go into effect on December 15. That has the usual suspects gnashing their teeth.

Why Americans are not paying for tariffs

Curtis Ellis explains 'myriad (illegal) subsidies' China continues to use

Today we witnessed a central rite of one of the world's great and growing state-sponsored religions. We saw frenzied acolytes crowd vast temples where they flailed each other to obtain offerings to placate their hungry god.

The religion of which we speak is consumerism. The ritual is known as Black Friday. And the offerings are made in China.

It's an appropriate time to consider the tariffs President Trump has imposed on imports from that authoritarian country.

China, the Big Man on Campus: American Greatness

The NBA and China’s ‘Thousand Talents Plan’

Like the NBA, universities are letting their immediate economic interests cloud their thinking. Unlike the NBA, they are being paid to train the spies who are stealing our crown jewels. Even worse, the U.S. government is providing the funding.  

Forget about the NBA. If you want to find a bought-and-paid-for willing accomplice to the Chinese Communist Party, just look at our universities.

Take Columbia University, please.

Is Congress finally holding the Chicoms accountable?

Curtis Ellis touts new legislation that punishes Beijing's human rights abuses



Beijing's brutal crackdown on democracy protesters in Hong Kong sparked a rare outbreak of bipartisanship in Washington.

The U.S. Senate unanimously approved the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. The House adopted it with only one dissenting vote. The president is expected to sign it.
