Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump struck a deal with the European Union to rework the lopsided trade deals that have hurt the United States economy for decades.
“This was a very big day for free and fair trade,” Trump said in a Rose Garden press conference with European Commission President Jean-Clause Juncker.
He echoed the same sentiment on Twitter.
“Great to be back on track with the European Union,” he said. “This was a big day for free and fair trade!”

Under the new agreement, all tariffs and trade barriers will be abolished, and subsidies on non-auto industrial goods will be eliminated.
The deal is nearly exactly what Trump demanded in a Tweet from Tuesday.
“The European Union is coming to Washington tomorrow to negotiate a deal on Trade,” he said. “I have an idea for them. Both the U.S. and the E.U. drop all Tariffs, Barriers and Subsidies! That would finally be called Free Market and Fair Trade! Hope they do it, we are ready – but they won’t!”

In addition, the EU will import more U.S. soybeans and liquified gas.
Still, Trump’s detractors are not impressed.
“On the bright side, there is a clear de-escalation of rhetoric and that’s good, but the devil will be in the details,” Scott Lincicome, scholar at the libertarian Cato Institute told Weekly Standard. “And this provides almost no details. Meanwhile, all the tariffs implemented so far remain in force.”
If the “experts” at D.C. think tanks and “true conservatives” like Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard are so brilliant, why are we in this mess in the first place? Where have they been over the past four decades wile America got ripped off by the rest of the world?
Likewise, #NeverTrump pundit Ben Shapiro, a true dumb person’s “smart person,” predicted on March 1 that Trump’s tariffs would “likely launch a trade war”:
In the past 48 hrs. Trump has suggested:
(1) removing Second Amendment rights without due process;
(2) a massive tariff that would likely launch a trade war;
(3) the death penalty for drug dealers.
That ain’t good.

That never happened.
Not to worry though, Shapiro re-assured us that the zero-tariff agreement was “good Trump” on Wednesday, completely ignoring the fact that implementing the tariffs brought the EU to the negotiating table in the first place. (I’m sure Trump is relieved to have Shapiro’s approval).

Shapiro, supposed proponent of free markets, never once criticized the EU for the massive tariffs placed on American goods.
Once again, the Trump-controlled GOP wins, and his detractors are left looking foolish.
Curt Schilling Reveals that AIG Canceled His Insurance Over His Social Media
The woke purges are only beginning.
On January 12, 2021, former all-star pitcher and now-conservative commentator Curt Schilling announced that AIG canceled his insurance policy over his “social media profile.”
“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my ‘Social Media profile’,” Schilling said in a Tweet.

“The agent told us it was a decision made by and with their PR department in conjunction with management,” he continued.
Social media censorship has become normalized over the last four years. Now, however, this kind of corporate policing is being extended to people’s ability to do banking. Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News observed the following:
While innumerable Trump supporters have lost their Twitter and Facebook accounts due to social media censorship and cancel culture, cases of individuals being cut off by banks and other financial services are now growing too.
The logic of corporate America’s woke crusade is to change people’s behavior by censoring social media activity. In addition, corporate entities will cut off people from basic services to make their lives miserable simply for dissenting against the regime’s official narrative.
Republicans will have to stop worshiping corporations and rethink some of their economic policies. Corporations have too much power in America and are clearly not on the side of the Right. The refusal to recognize this new reality will lead to continued defeats for the Right. It’s time to adapt.
