WOODSON: Labor Policy Going In Right Direction Under President Donald J. Trump — Opinion

The President is marching towards another victory this fall and that victory will be a win for workers.

The President is marching towards another victory this fall and that victory will be a win for workers. The labor market has been hit hard by the coronavirus and historically low unemployment numbers have gone away. America needs a leader who can get us back to the prosperity we experienced earlier this year. That leader is the same one who got us there – President Donald J. Trump.

The labor numbers were great in January and February of this year. At President Trump’s State of the Union speech on February 4, 2020, before the coronavirus set back the U.S. economy, Trump proclaimed “in just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline, and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny.  We have totally rejected the downsizing.  We are moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago, and we are never, ever going back.” He reported that “our economy is the best it has ever been.” The numbers were historic and only under President Trump can we get back to that prosperity.

The President pointed out “from the instant I took office, I moved rapidly to revive the U.S. economy — slashing a record number of job-killing regulations, enacting historic and record-setting tax cuts, and fighting for fair and reciprocal trade agreements.” One of those agreements that is being fixed is one that deals with foreign companies getting American contracts, and American taxpayer cash.

One accomplishment is a push by the Trump Administration to implement a ‘Buy American’ policy that uses taxpayer cash for government contracting. Patrick Pizzella, Deputy Secretary of Labor, wrote on. September 7, 2020, “in the past, foreign companies in America’s trade partners enjoyed a lopsided advantage when it came to gaining lucrative government contracts.” He pointed at a 2017 Government Accounting Office (GAO) report showing $837 billion in contracting that was outsourced to non-American companies. Executive Order 13788 was issued by the Trump Administration to make sure that American companies were used when the taxpayers dollars are being used to contract with private companies.

The Trump Department of Labor seems to be moving away from lawsuits that harass private companies and deter them from working with the federal government. The Obama Administration Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), housed at Labor, issued a number of last-minute baseless lawsuits using statistics to allege discrimination on the part of American companies contracting with the federal government. When those lawsuits are fully abandoned, that will help get American companies that contract with the federal government back on their feet.

President Trump’s State of the Union gave Americans a glimpse into the numbers we can see in 2021 unless if the voters choose socialism over free market policies. Trump pointed out that as of February of this year, “since my election, we have created 7 million new jobs,” with an “unemployment rate is the lowest in over half a century,” and an “unemployment rate for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans has reached the lowest levels in history.” The numbers were staggering including 7 million Americans getting off food stamps and 10 million off welfare because they had good jobs. Over three and one half million people had jointed the workforce, as compared to three hundred thousand who dropped out during the Obama years. The American people have an easy choice this fall if they want to get back to the prosperity of earlier this year.

Clearly, workers would benefit from another term of President Trump. The Trump Administration at the Department of Labor has implemented some good policies that are getting government contracting back on track while the President’s overall pro-business tax and regulatory policies will help rebuild the economy. The American people have an easy choice this fall if they want to continue the Trump policies that led to very low unemployment numbers and record growth or the socialism-lite policies of Joe Biden that will get us back to the high regulatory and tax policies that provided stagnant growth during the Obama years.

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

Published

on

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

on

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
