Who America stands with
â€śYears of mismanagement, corruption, and foreign adventurism have eroded the Iranian peopleâ€™s trust in their leaders,â€ť White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. â€śThe Iranian regime spends its peopleâ€™s wealth on spreading militancy and terror abroad, rather than ensuring prosperity at home.â€ť
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley delivered a clear message at the UN yesterday, warning the international body that it cannot afford to repeat the mistake it made in 2009 by staying quiet.
â€śWe must not be silent. The people of Iran are crying out for freedom.â€ť
The forgotten American idea
Pinkertonâ€™s thesis? In polarized times, itâ€™s easy to let partisan instincts cloud what should be a bipartisan consensus. â€śIt should not be forgotten that the idea of using lower tax rates to stimulate growth is not just a Republican ideaâ€”itâ€™s an American idea,â€ť he writes.
â€śThe soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now.â€ť Those words didn't come from President Donald J. Trumpâ€”or even President Ronald Reagan.
They are from Democratic President John F. Kennedy.
