The vast majority of the richest people in America are globalist liberals you idiots , look it up , Trump is the only president in years that has endorsed the made in America theme and has openly supported and actually brought our jobs back to America , how stupid and brainwashed are you fools , what did they do to your brains in college that made you such an ignorant puppet of the globalist liberal machine , America is in collapse , liberalism and illegal immigration have now destroyed the American dream for good and civil war in America is only a matter of time , its over people , nuclear war and the end of times is at hand , prepare to die , liberalism has destroyed the America dream , our democracy is dead and all our freedoms gone for good , now god will destroy us , so be it , I’m ready are you ? I hope all you evil , godless , liberal scum are ready to burn in hell , because that is where you all belong

So Trump restructures ridiculous regulations and saves/revives the coal industry, then changes regulations and creates tariffs that protects and reanimates the U.S. steel industry...... so the union leaders and members of this district convince themselves to vote against him? LOL... remind me not to give a damn about the unemployed idiots of this district the next time the Dems shut down the coal industry and sabotage U.S. steel production.

Unions killed our car industry, and many others, and forced us into the "giant sucking sound", and they want to do it again. This bullshit about rich Republicans and poor Democrats is just that - bullshit. They support Trump for bringing back industry to America, and then want to suck it dry and ruin the prospect of a level playing field in world trade.

What's the point of putting on tariffs and claiming you are for workers if at the same time you are against unions? All it means is that you support American steel companies having the right to underpay their workers and deny them health care coverage.

Superman Sixty9 (10 months ago)
A P Where have you been ,hiding under a pillow? Our politicians are the Sell Outs!! Look around you the people have spoken and can see that this administration is NOT the answer. Unions have been disappearing for decades and that because you have Republicans that got buddies that are UNION BUSTERS that go around breaking unions up I have seen them in action so stop complaining. Immigration is what this country was built on, or did you forget your history and turn the blind eye like everyone else. You ever here of Karma, well seems to me this was Indian land century's ago and well now the white man is crying foul because of the Mexicans. Seems to me this country can't get along with its Neighbors, or let me rephrase that , The REPUBLICANS CANT SEEMS TO LIKE MEXICANS !! Period it's not a immigration issue it's a racial issue, if your saw God and he was a Immigrant what would you do? Ya I thought so. In the end my friend we all need to survive and the bills keep on coming and the politicians seem to get Richer which is why I strongly believe they ALL should have term limits and STOP getting Rich on our TAX dollars. Just remember and look at all the benefits people have DUE TO UNIONS, Holiday Pay, Sick Leave, Family Leave Vacation, etc..... So don let them take your right away, as you can see , Republicans are UNion busters and think we can live off of 10-15an Hr while everything goes up in Price BUT OuR wages and Benefits. I am not calling you all sorts of names,I never to stoop to another persons LOW LEVEL, I'm way to MATURE for that I'm in my 40z,, so next time do as I taught 3 of my Military Kids ,think twice and act once you always seem to be better off. God Bless 🇺🇸🇺🇸

If Unions think that Pelosi’s boy Conor Lamb represents the American Worker, then wake the hell up and do it NOW. Only one guy represents the American worker and that is Trump and Saccone, the GOP of today is a WORKERS party bringing back jobs and industries. You vote for the scum in the Democrat party, the people who brought you the KKK and NAFTA that send Pennsylvania steel jobs overseas — if you DISRESPECT TRUMP and the GOP who have gone to bat for you to protect the steel industry and aluminum industry so you can bring it back — then SHAME ON ANY UNION WORKER WHO FALLS FOR THEIR PHONY BS!!! Lamb is a manufactured, phony mannequin candidate, and he is faking out the Independent voters of Pennsylvania, part of the new sick strategy of the failing Democrat party (you know, the party that stands for nothing and has no platform except hating the other side). If you vote for Lamb, you’ll be headed to the slaughter as a state because he will INSTANTLY fold himself under the disgusting Nancy Pelosi’s and Chuck Schumer’s Far Left, “lead from behind” state and undo the fight that Trump has tried to make for our country’s comeback. DON’T VOTE CONOR LAMB!!!!! VOTE AMERICA! Schumer and Pelosi demand EVERY Democrat stick with Far Left policies; support criminals streaming across our borders; support illegal criminal hispanics flowing over like a tide of gargage in Mexico City. If you allow this man to win, you’ll be allowing the dire liars of the Democrat Party to obstruct our government. Instead of a President ready to discuss and negotiate solutions to keep our government moving, a vote for Lamb is a vote for harming the country via moral and ethical decay. Trump sacrified the life of a billionaire to serve the working class; do not let this glad-handing phony fool you into letting him win. Don’t let Pennsylvania become a rat-hole like California. VOTE GOP.

BS, I'm back from Texas and in the North again making Union wages, 42$ HR, same job in Texas was at 15$ an Hr, Right to work is a right to rip you and your family form you hard earned money$$$$. Republicans ARE ALL ABOUT THE BIG BOY CLUB that's how come they have $$$ , and you don't. Weekends, holidays ,sick leave etc.... ALL THANKS TO A UNION BROTHER ,REP.. are trying to take this all away , just look into it. They say10-15 an hr is something a family can live on and want you to pay for insurance while they want and take all the $$$ they can and keep making top dollar and have FREE insurance for the USGov. I say if your UNION and VOTE REP then you should be making the wage they insist for you and get kicked out of the Union for Life for being an idiot.

The United States is NOT a Sovereign Nation, It’s a Central Banker's Corporation! You cannot Expect Justice from a Corrupt Puppet Government! What people either fail to understand or have since forgotten is that in 1933, the United States lost its sovereignty as a nation, due to bankruptcy. It's now a corporation, owned and controlled by Central Banks and governed by the Federal Reserve, which is nothing more than a consortium of international bankers, with a Presidential appointed Chairman. In essence there in nothing Federal about the Federal Reserve, nor any other agency for that matter! They are all puppets of the oligarchy. Unless and until the Federal Reserve is dismantled and abolished, we will never be free of the Deep State, The Shadow Government and the Oligarchy. Anything short of that is simply window dressing. Time to Wake Up Folks! ___________________________ Those who subscribe to the partisan paradigm, unwittingly relegate themselves to navigating the political chess game, with a checkers mentality. The partisan paradigm, is nothing more than a mechanism, designed and devised by the establishment, to keep the putative electorate, invested in an inherently corrupt, morally bankrupt, political system. In reality, there is no right or left, conservative or liberal. There is only the oligarchy, their minions and those who are foolish enough to accede to the charade.

I think that the tariff war may lead to inflation. But I see it in a positive way. Who wins in inflationary atmosphere? Those who have debts. With America in trillions of debts and Debt ridden Americans, inflation could be good. As long as the jobs keep growing and middle class Americans not left jobless, inflation is great.
Daryl Leckt (10 months ago)
Anna Nymous conservative trickle down economics was designed to create debt. debt is sold to investors who earn tax exempt profits. inflation will never be used to pay down the national debt. the debt is designed to redistribute wage earner wealth thru taxation to the investor elitest.
