BRUSSELS is gearing up for a bitter trade war with US and has pledged to fight fire with fire if Washington carries out its threat to introduce import barriers to steel and aluminium products from Europe.

European Union trade officials have warned such a move would result in counter-tarrifs being slapped on exports from the US within days.

They said iconic US products ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to Jack Daniels whiskey would be targeted in any retaliatory strikes and that preparations for such a confrontation were in full swing. Continue reading

Trump’s call to restore American sovereignty panics globalist elites on Left and Right

It’s official: Donald Trump is America’s Hitler.

This is now the relentless drumbeat of the mainstream media, along with the Democratic and GOP establishment. The Republican front-runner is being smeared and demonized in a way not seen since Ronald Reagan.

Back then, liberals and Beltway Republicans — including George H.W. Bush — attacked Reagan for being an economic know-nothing, an “extremist,” a “militarist” and according to The New York Times, a “fascist.” For the ruling elites, Reagan was the new “Hitler.”

Kuhner: Obamatrade would destroy America

President Obama is on the verge of creating the New World Order. He is using Trade Promotion Authority — otherwise known as “fast track” — to pass his globalist dream: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a sweeping 12-nation trade pact.

The TPP, however, is much more than about “free trade.” It is a deliberate attempt to create a new Pacific Union — a supranational entity modeled on the European Union.

Majority leader praises President Obama over Trans-Pacific Partnership as Congressman Paul Ryan suggests momentum will carry to House

Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell said on Sunday the Senate will pass “fast-track” authority to negotiate major trade deals this week, despite opposition to the measure from many of President Barack Obama’s fellow Democrats.

“Yes, we’ll pass it. We’ll pass it later this week,” McConnell said in an interview with ABC. Continue reading

Canadian Oil Likely an Early Item on the Agenda for the New US Congress

WASHINGTON—Canada’s stalled Keystone XL pipeline project is poised to become one of the first orders of business in the new U.S. Congress, where Tuesday’s Republican romp could end up impacting several cross-border industries.

There are hopes in Ottawa that the midterm results could spur movement on the controversial Canada-U.S. bitumen pipeline, as well as major free-trade negotiations and perhaps even meat-labelling rules that have hurt Canada.

Virtually every Republican asked about post-election plans has already mentioned Keystone XL as a top priority for the next Congress, a development that would be as detested by the environmental movement as it would be celebrated by oil industry supporters. Continue reading
