Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade.

The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner:

“It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal.

The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals.

Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members.

Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.”

Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices.

This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States.

The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to 45 percent of a vehicle’s component parts must be made by factory workers making at least $16 an hour.

Elizabeth Warren Not Interested In Getting Involved In Sanders-Clinton Feud, Says ‘I’m Not Going There’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen behind both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the polls, which is not a great sign this close to the Iowa caucuses, but at the end of the day, it’s still anyone’s game. With the primary so close, many in the Democratic Party have turned on each other and gone after one another in verbal jousting and mudslinging attacks, chief among them Warren and Sanders, with Warren accusing Sanders of saying he didn’t believe a woman could be president. While the smoke is just starting to clear on that a bit, the feud between Bernie and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still alive, and Warren is refusing to get involved in the fray. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: Elizabeth Warren tried to skirt questions about Hillary Clinton’s claim “nobody likes” her rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. “I’m not going there,” the Massachusetts senator, 70, told CBS Friday morning. Clinton, 72, in an interview published this week by the Hollywood Reporter, blasted the Vermont senator, her former 2016 Democratic primary opponent, as “a career politician,” saying she felt “so bad” that “people got sucked into” him. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” the former secretary of state told the outlet. “Bernie and I have worked together for a very long time, and we continue to do so. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this,” Warren said before turning to the topic of impeachment. Warren has obviously realized that her attacks against Bernie backfired on her in a big way so now she’s trying to avoid getting pulled into another battle that could potentially hurt her chances…

Brand New Poll Reveals That A Plurality Of Americans On Board With Soleimani Killing

Published

on

Liberals all across the country displayed their true colors by coming out in support of a radical Islamic terrorist, one who killed an untold number of American soldiers and horribly oppressed his own people in Iran after President Trump ordered the drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. These folks despise the president so much that they took the side of a terrorist, strangely seeming to believe that their opinions on this would reflect the feelings of most Americans. A new poll proves that is totally not the case at all. In fact, a plurality of Americans support the president’s decision to take out Soleimani. Here’s more on the poll from The Washington Examiner: The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday found 41% of Americans approved of Trump authorizing Soleimani’s death while 30% of Americans opposed the authorization. While more Americans supported the killing than opposed it, 59% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s handling of foreign policy overall. The poll comes three weeks after the United States killed the Iranian terrorist leader. The strike came in response to Iranian-backed militias attacking the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. Trump described the killing as a “no bullshit” mission. Iran responded by firing over a dozen missiles at bases housing U.S. troops. The Iranian strikes injured 11 Americans but resulted in no deaths. Once again, this poll demonstrates that a lot of individuals in the Democratic Party are on the wrong side of an issue, led there by their own desire to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. In short, they have become so used to hating the president and attacking him over every move he makes that it has become their default reaction, even when he does something good, to criticize him and oppose him. Will this…
