Trump To Head To Beijing For Second Phase Of China Trade Talks

Published

on

President Trump is working hard to get some sort of trade agreement worked out with China, in fact, he’s set to begin what he calls “phase two” of talks with the country by heading out to Beijing on January 15.

Part of the trip’s purpose is the signing ceremony for phase one of the deal between the United States and China.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“I will be signing our very large and comprehensive Phase One Trade Deal with China on January 15. The ceremony will take place at the White House. High level representatives of China will be present. At a later date I will be going to Beijing where talks will begin on Phase Two!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

The current talks involve firming up details regarding a trade agreement that was reached in October. Progress in the talks has been slow as China has been reluctant to commit details to writing and demanded the White House roll back existing tariffs. The White House has said the talks will likely have three phases.

The Trump administration has put tariffs of 25% on $250 billion worth of goods from China and 7.5% tariffs on another $120 billion worth of goods. Beijing had placed tariffs of up to 25% on $185 billion worth of goods from the United States.

President Trump is once again proving that his economic policies are geared toward producing deals that not only increase trade with other countries, but guarantee we have more of a positive result in the deals that are made, helping the economy to have much needed gains.

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

Published

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…

Thus Far in 2021, Big Tech Has Cracked Down on Free Speech More than Ever Before

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before.

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before. An analysis of these fascist efforts to end free speech on the Internet awarded Big Tech a bit fat “F” for its un-American efforts to aid and abet the far-left. Per the Media Research Center: At least 10 separate tech platforms silenced then-sitting President of the United States Donald Trump over the speech he gave in Washington, D.C. the day of the Capitol riot. Both Google and Apple pulled Parler from their app stores. Amazon Web Services also cancelled its contract with Parler, shutting the burgeoning social media site down for more than five weeks. Google removed LifeSiteNews from its advertising programs, and YouTube shut down its channel. YouTube demonetized Steven Crowder’s channels. Amazon removed Ryan T. Anderson’s book examining transgender ideology, and it also removed a Clarence Thomas documentary while continuing to sell at least 270 hate items. That consistent assault on free speech makes 2021 an ideal time to track the biases and failures of Big Tech. Starting with this quarter and going forward every three months, the Media Research Center’s Free Speech America operation will grade the top Big Tech companies, including social media, search media and others that form the backbone of our online lives. This quarter, Big Tech earned a collective “F.” Every one of the Big Tech companies reviewed got an “F” in free speech. That’s simply appalling. The quarter began with unparalleled restriction of the president of the United States. It was unquestionably the low point for online freedom since the creation of the internet. The MRC added its report card: The MRC went on in its report to detail all the reasons why each company in the graph above have…
