White House Fumbles American Innovation Summit

Published

on

When the White House “Office of American Innovation” and “American Technology Council” put together a summit last week to promote an America First economic policy, they committed a fumble.  They gave a German software management company a forum to pitch the White House for new business.  For an Administration that has pushed back against the idea of “Globalism,” this one company was allowed to push a globalist agenda by being allowed to pitch the outsourcing government functions to a German company.

The German Company is SAP, Systeme Anwendungen und Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung, and that company competes directly with the products of American companies Oracle and Microsoft. SAP was an odd choice, because the German company Deutsche Telecom was not invited to pitch their internet services.  Other Russian, Chinese and European companies were not invited to pitch President Trump for business.  Why SAP?

The CEO of SAP, Bill McDermott, not only attended but was an active participant in the process.  While many giants of American technology like Apple, Microsoft, Google and Oracle were invited and participated, the inclusion of McDermott as an active participant was not well received.  American companies are a better fit for federal government contracts that involve national security and government wide software, and hardware, solutions.

One purpose of the summit was to solicit help in modernizing government.  The president was quoted as calling for a “sweeping transformation” in technology for the whole federal government.  It is funny that President Trump has not proven to be the protectionist that the media predicted – the European Union are the proven protectionist block of nations.

What happened to America first? We will not, “make America Great Again” with the same old buddy system and the huge trade imbalance that has put America in next to last. We must square our trade imbalance and start putting our American industry first, and that means looking at our trade – both imports and exports.

Economics 101 folks, means we bring in from the EU and other nations what they take from our exports. It is a balance sheet formula. We need to regain our place in this Economic monopoly board and set the stage for U.S. dominance economically. If Trump is truly concerned about our economic standing, it is time to put up or shut up.

Just look at the recent fine imposed by the EU on Google.  CNN Money reported this week, “European Union regulators slapped Google with a record €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) antitrust fine on Tuesday, the latest broadside fired at big American tech companies doing business in the region.”  This is protectionism.

The EU claimed that Google was denying choice because they were using their search engine to steer people to their own shopping platform.  The real reason they are hammering Google is because Google is the most successful search engine in human history – and an American company.  The allegation is that Google did not allow other companies “a chance to compete” when they don’t understand the Google is a private company that does not have to actively promote competitors.  Is the EU aware that there are other search engines competing with Google?

Yet this incident proves the point that the EU is just beginning to engage in protectionism in the name of “anti-trust” law.  The fact is that the EU exists to protect and shelter European companies at the expense of the American business world. Is this fair trade? I think not, I think our very existence as a super power is being threatened by this EU buddy system.

And that brings us back to the American summit held last week to promote American technology where the White House allowed a German company to pitch the government for business. Reciprocity is a very important idea in trade.  We treat them like they treat us.  If President Trump treated SAP like the EU has treated Google this past week, he would have handed the German company a billion dollar fine for trying to compete for American business.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett Recently Approved Democrat COVID-19 Lockdown Policies

Her decision should raise some eyebrows.

Published

on

Judge Amy Coney Barrett has emerged as the choice of Conservative Twitter to be the successor on the Supreme Court to replace deceased former justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday after many bouts of cancer.

However, Barrett’s record is troubling on many issues, with a ruling that gives Democrats in Illinois blanket authority to shut down society based on COVID-19 mass hysteria standing out as particularly heinous.

Barrett concurred with the majority in Illinois Republican Party et al. v. J.B. Pritzker, Governor of Illinois to keep the illegal lockdown in place and allow Democrats to rip up the Constitution under the guise of safety. She hid behind the precedent of Jacobsen v. Massachusetts (1905) in an attempt to avoid culpability for her decision.

“At least at this stage of the pandemic, Jacobson takes off the table any general challenge to [Pritzker’s executive order] based on the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection of liberty,” the majority opinion read in the case.

It continued: “[W]hile in the face of a pandemic the Governor of Illinois was not compelled to make a special dispensation for religious activities, see Elim, nothing in the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment barred him from doing so. As in the cases reconciling the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses, all that the Governor did was to limit to a certain degree the burden on religious exercise that [the governor’s executive order] imposed.”

While Barrett rolls over to the far left and allows Democrats to rip up the Constitution, other judges are actually living up to their oath, such as the Trump-appointed District Judge in Pennsylvania, William S. Stickman.

In his ruling, Stickman refused to hide behind precedent to allow the constitution to be destroyed by Democrats. He effectively deep-sixed Pennsylvania’s lockdown and obliterated the abominable Jacobson decision.

He wrote: “Jacobson was decided over a century ago. Since that time, there has been substantial development of federal constitutional law in the area of civil liberties… That century of development has seen the creation of tiered levels of scrutiny for constitutional claims. They did not exist when Jacobson was decided. […]”

“The Court shares the concerns expressed by Justice Alito… and believes that an extraordinarily deferential standard based on Jacobson is not appropriate,” Stickman added.

Patriotic attorney Robert Barnes has levied additional criticism against Barrett for her unwillingness to stand up to Democrat overreach.

“For example, Barrett, I would oppose her nomination personally. So I would do whatever I can to see her nomination fail. I have no interest in seeing someone like that on the bench,” Barnes explained during an interview on the Viva Frei YouTube channel.

“She comes from the old money corporate South, a world I’m familiar with and the kind of people I’d never want to see in positions of power… That’s the world she comes from. Her dad was a big Shell oil corporate lawyer,” he continued.

Barnes explained how Barrett’s history working as a Clerk for deceased former Justice Antonin Scalia is giving the false impression that she shares his staunch originalist beliefs when that is not in fact the case. He explained that her rise is similar to that of Chief Justice John Roberts, whose record of extreme cowardice on the bench has harmed the nation immeasurably.

“This is how Justice Roberts got on the bench. You do two things if you’re on the Republican side of the aisle: You let people know that you believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned even if you don’t believe that… And you play the corporate side of the equation,” he said.

“But most importantly, you get that Justice and his extended intellectual heavyweights to lobby for you to be appointed to the judicial bench down the road… That’s why people are pushing Barrett,” Barnes added.

Barnes highlighted some of Barrett’s worst decisions in a blistering Twitter thread.
