Ukraine Says Its Rocket Engines Not Behind North Korea’s Missile Success

KYIV, Ukraine—In 2011, Denys Antipov, who was then a Korean language student at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, received an unusual request from the Security Service of Ukraine—the country’s successor agency to the KGB. The Security Service of Ukraine, or SBU, needed Antipov’s help in a delicate counterintelligence operation. In an undercover sting, the security agency had nabbed two North Korean spies trying to steal rocket technology from Ukrainian engineers at the KB Yuzhnoye Design Office in the city of Dnipro, called Dnipropetrovsk at that time. “We believe that this anti-Ukrainian campaign was provoked by the Russian special services,” Oleksandr Turchynov of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council says. Ukrainian counterintelligence officials needed a Korean interpreter for the interrogation and trial of the captured North Koreans. Suddenly, Antipov—who is today 28 years … Read entire article »

‘Hillary-Lite Administration’? Conservatives Worry About Bannon Ouster

The exit of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon doesn’t bode well for conservatives or those who just wanted to see President Donald Trump stick to the economic and foreign policy message that he ran on, some on the right fear. “There is no question that Steve Bannon was one of the only people who could keep Trump true to Trumpism,” Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Signal. “Without Bannon, you have mostly bankers, generals, and liberal Democrats in the White House. It could be a Hillary-lite administration.” Trump was in line with some of the policies promoted by the Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that backs enforcement of immigration laws. However, it’s not just immigration where Krikorian fears President Trump could waiver … Read entire article »

America Is Heading Straight Into Its Most Avoidable Crisis Ever

America Is Heading Straight Into Its Most Avoidable Crisis Ever

In the looming shadow of another debt limit debate, Congress should stand firm and demand spending controls before increasing the debt limit again. Most people are familiar with the tragic story of the Titanic. Like the iceberg that sank the grand ship, the United States is facing what is perhaps the largest and most avoidable crisis in its history—the U.S. federal debt. The crew of the Titanic chose to ignore warnings of the danger ahead. Congress must … Read entire article »

How Trump Can Avoid Getting Bogged Down While Draining the Swamp

Military veterans, trying to get medical care or other services, face a maze of subagencies in the Department of Veterans Affairs. And that’s just one of many reasons for making the federal government more efficient, policy experts say. “The VA has 42 different offices, including 14 specifically related to health,” said Rachel Greszler, research fellow in economics, budget, and entitlements with The Heritage Foundation. “These things just create a bureaucratic nightmare for veterans who are seeking integrated services, one stop to go to for all of their needs as opposed to 42 different offices, [and the veteran] responsible for taking documentation from one to another,” Greszler added Tuesday during a panel discussion at the think tank’s Capitol Hill headquarters.

Farmer Faces Multimillion-Dollar Fine for Plowing Fields Without Government’s Permission

This week, a federal judge will determine whether to levy a multimillion-dollar fine against John Duarte, as requested by the Department of Justice. Duarte’s wrongdoing? Plowing fields without first asking the permission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In 2012, Duarte—a fourth-generation California farmer and owner of a large agricultural nursery—began plowing 450 acres of property in order to plant winter wheat. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This typical farming practice soon caught the attention of a local Corps project manager, who was horrified to see that the plowed land contained a smattering of vernal pools. These generally dry, shallow land depressions temporarily collect excess rainwater, which quickly evaporates. Depending on weather variations, they may not fill with water at all. The Corps claimed the authority to regulate these pools as “wetlands” under the Clean … Read entire article »

Desperate for Cash, Venezuela Gives Putin Control of Oil Assets

Venezuela is handing over unprecedented control of its state-owned oil assets to longtime financial backer Russia in an effort to stave off insolvency and economic collapse. Battered by civil unrest that threatens to become a total political meltdown, the socialist government of President Nicolas Maduro has offered an ownership stake in up to nine of Venezuela’s most productive oil projects, Reuters reported Friday.

Clothing Suppliers Want Free Trade, Not Protectionism

A recent study shows that anti-trade rhetoric in the nation’s capital is worrying U.S. executives who represent clothing brands, retailers, importers, and wholesalers. This rhetoric should concern the rest of us, too. According to this U.S. Fashion Industry Association study, the “protectionist trade policy agenda in the United States” has emerged as the industry’s single biggest business challenge. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This is a major increase from last year, when protectionism—the attempt to protect specific domestic industries from foreign competition by taxing or otherwise restricting imports bought by other Americans—was only the 10th-highest business challenge. Concerns about trade restrictions are both serious and widespread: 69 percent of respondents in the study ranked the protectionist trade policy agenda in their top five business challenges, well above the next highest-ranked concern. Furthermore, the spike in concern … Read entire article »

WalletHub Gets It Exactly Wrong on Tax Incentives. Cronyism Is Not the Answer.

A new list that ranks states on the ease of starting a business puts Nevada at a dismal 35th using dubious methodology that drives down the state’s ranking. The culprit? “Nevada issues fewer incentives for businesses than many other states,” explained WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez. “Incentives were analyzed because they promote collaboration between state governments and startups.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); No, WalletHub, that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works. First of all, tax incentives and government favors aren’t a good measure of how easy it is to start a business. In fact, they have nothing to do with it, and might even suggest the existence of an environment hostile to startups. The most favorable characteristics of a pro-startup environment are low taxes and regulations, transparent processes, and a simple and … Read entire article »

Budget Experts Call for ‘Bold Leadership’ to Cut National Debt

Politicians continue to put their interests first in ignoring looming consequences to the massive and growing U.S. national debt, experts on the economy said at a recent forum. “We are facing the largest, most predictable crisis in U.S. history, and almost nobody is talking about it,” warned Romina Boccia, deputy director of economic policy studies at The Heritage Foundation. “We need bold leadership,” Boccia said.

Venezuela’s Socialist Leader Asks for UN Meeting With Trump as His Nation Crumbles

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he is ready to meet with President Donald Trump, just days after Washington hit the ruling socialist regime with sanctions. Speaking Thursday to the newly installed National Constituent Assembly, an all-powerful legislative body packed with Maduro loyalists, the socialist leader called on Venezuela’s foreign minister to arrange a phone call or face-to-face or meeting with Trump at the United Nations General Assembly in September. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Maduro’s request comes after the U.S. levied sanctions on eight top Venezuelan officials for violating human rights and democratic norms. The Trump administration also targeted Maduro himself, branding the Venezuelan president a “dictator” and freezing all of his assets subject to U.S. jurisdiction. Under the threat of further sanctions against Venezuela’s oil industry, Maduro suggested he would consider making a deal with … Read entire article »

These Obama Regulations Make a Strong Case for Tax Reform

Congress is pivoting to tax reform, which if done correctly, should replace a list of draconian Obama-era regulations that went to extraordinary lengths to keep American companies from leaving the U.S. Ironically, the Obama administration ignored the key incentives that pushed companies to try and leave, chief among them being a sky-high corporate tax rate. Last year, drug manufacturer Pfizer’s proposed merger with foreign-based Allergan was thwarted after new regulations were issued by President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department, forcing Pfizer, for the second time, to abandon its attempted restructuring. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Why might U.S. companies like Pfizer want to move abroad? One major reason is that U.S. corporate income tax rates are significantly higher than those of our major trading partners. Each year other countries lower their rates while the U.S. corporate … Read entire article »

Conservatives Must Demand Spending Controls in Exchange for Raising Debt Ceiling

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has indicated that the federal borrowing limit must be raised by Sept. 29, or the U.S. could run out of money to pay its bills. Congress, which controls the purse strings of the U.S. government, should not abdicate that authority by writing Mnuchin a blank check and getting nothing in return for American taxpayers. Any increase in the debt limit should be tied to spending controls. It is the American taxpayers whose money Congress is authorizing to be spent. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Increasingly it is American children, or those not yet born, who will be burdened with the federal debt. They will owe America’s lenders unfathomable amounts of money because of Congress’ irresponsible spending. Today, the federal debt stands just shy of $20 trillion.

Democrats’ ‘Better Deal’ Proposals Would Make Americans Worse Off

On July 24, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi unveiled proposals by House Democrats to create “a better deal” for American families and workers. Unfortunately, the press releases accompanying the launch of the “Better Deal” initiative outline general policies that would undermine economic opportunities for Americans and harm American consumers. In other words, this initiative flunks basic truth in labeling standards. More accurately, it constitutes “a worse deal” for Americans. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Let’s see why. First, the initiative calls for “rais[ing] the wages and incomes of American workers and creat[ing] millions of good-paying jobs.” To this end, it calls for government “investment” in job creation projects, “fighting back” against corporations that outsource American jobs, and “ensur[ing] a living wage” for all Americans—a proposal that suggests a higher government-set minimum wage. But all of these suggestions … Read entire article »

Trump Backs Merit-Based Changes to Immigration System

President Donald Trump, who already has taken executive actions to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, on Wednesday put the weight of the White House behind a bill to begin to modernize the nation’s immigration system by favoring new entries who bring needed skills to America. Trump announced he is backing legislation co-sponsored by two Republican senators that would end the practice of “chain migration,” which gives priority to admitting relatives of immigrants who already are here legally. However, most Democrats and some Republicans could be skeptical about backing a bill that limits legal immigration. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., appeared with the president at the White House to promote their bill, called the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act, or RAISE. “The RAISE Act will … Read entire article »

Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Would Embolden Russia, Put European Stability at Risk

The proposed Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline, which will run alongside the existing Nord Stream pipeline under the Baltic Sea in northern Europe, would directly connect Russia and Germany by bypassing several other European countries. This pipeline would only make Europe more dependent on Russian gas and more vulnerable to Moscow’s energy blackmail. The Trump administration should pressure Germany to not go ahead with the deal. The project, led by Germany and Russia, has shown the deftness of Berlin toward its neighbors.

How Republicans in Nevada Caved to Crony Capitalism, and Lost

The story of Faraday Future and its $1 billion electric automobile plant in the Nevada desert is a cautionary tale about a governor who didn’t pay attention to the details. It’s a story about a Legislature that was so eager to create jobs that it failed in its responsibilities to the citizens of Nevada—and it’s about a rogue Chinese billionaire who is now over his head in trouble back home. The story began when the state of Nevada wooed and won the Tesla gigafactory in Reno. The jury is still out, but northern Nevada is booming and Tesla is one of the reasons why.
