U.S. Chamberpot of Commerce stabs Trump in the back



For decades, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said it was for corporate tax relief and the rolling back of unnecessary regulations. Donald John Trump was the only president to deliver both.

The chamber reacted by suing him and moving to endorse Democrats who voted to impeach him.

If there is a lower form of life in Washington than Tom Donohue, the $6 million-a-year man at the chamber, I do not want to see it.

His unprovoked attacks on President Trump show Donohue was lying all along.

He does not want tax cuts or regulations cut because big business can easily dodge taxes and regulations serve as a barrier from competition that protects big corporations that can afford compliance with whatever hoop the bureaucrats want you to jump through on any particular day. Capriciousness is a hallmark of government.

Donohue never liked President Trump. For example, on June 28, 2016, Donohue tweeted, "Under Trump's trade plans, we would see higher prices, fewer jobs, and a weaker economy."

President Trump brought 3.5% unemployment and a stronger economy. The only inflation we have had is in the stock market -- which has risen 56% since we elected Donald Trump president.

Donohue doesn't care about any of that. He is a little social justice warrior in a business suit because rather than admit he was wrong and beg forgiveness, Donohue and his chamber have sued the president.

In a New York Times piece, Donohue wrote, "Over the past few weeks, the Trump administration has decided to close the door to engineers, executives, information technology experts, doctors, nurses and others who come to the United States on work visas. It has attempted to ban international students from attending American colleges and universities that hold classes virtually in the fall. And it has shown an unwavering commitment to canceling the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA."

Donohue has made the chamber a chamberpot of open borders.

Good grief, he supports Red China sending spies as students and faculty members to our universities.

And now Donohue wants the chamber to endorse vulnerable Democrats in House races, because that will keep Nancy Pelosi speaker.

Politico reported, "The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is poised to endorse nearly two dozen freshmen House Democrats for reelection, triggering a revolt within the right-leaning organization and drawing fierce pushback from the group’s powerful GOP donors.

"The decision represents a sharp departure for the traditionally conservative Chamber, which has spent over $100 million backing Republican candidates during the past decade, and it threatens to further complicate the party’s prospects in the November election while driving a split in the business community."

Republicans should turn their back on the chamber because Donohue has turned it into another loony lefty group.

    1. Useless Chamber of Communists. Been calling them that since Sundance shown sunlight on their sundry behavior.

    2. One of their objectives years ago was protecting ObamaCare, just like AARP. This has been going on a long time and I agree it's all about erecting barriers to entry for competition to large corporations and cheap exploited labor.

    3. Milton Friedman once said there are two main groups who oppose the free market...college processors and CEOs.

  2. Big supporter of Mitch McConnell and his RINO sellouts in the Senate. Always support weasels in the primaries that want to 'make a deal' when selling access to the US Market - every country in the World is willing to pay to get access to the US honeypot.

  5. I am thinking that President Trump will use this anti-endorsement to his advantage, and that POTUS would rather have the approval of 6 Minnesota Democrat mayors than this nincompoop.

    1. Very well put. Only problem is that the Chamber can pour money into these local races while the mayors cannot.

  6. It's almost like people who aren't conservative have been pretending to be conservative so conservatives will send them money. And then somebody who knew better blew the lid off their grift. I wonder who that could be...?

  7. Fortunately I don't believe most normal people give a damn who the CoC endorses. Their relentless shilling for open borders has made them toxic to American workers, and the likes of Jeff Flake, Paul Ryan and other congressional CoCsuckers have paid a price for their allegiance.

  8. The epitome of the Republican cliche-d, money grubbing weasels of yesteryear. ZB

  9. Well, the Chamber has to find a new home since Trump is transforming the Republican party as the working person and small business owner-operator party.

    As for the stance for foreign tech workers and students, Eric Weinstein explains why that is. They use the immigration system to avoid doing something effective for black and women in science/tech education and jobs.

  10. Trump is a 1990's democrat, I do not expect "free movement of labor" republicans to like him. Closing borders is antithetical to the republican plank of "makes as much money as possible, the people be damned." Of course treacherous republicans are going to turn on Trump, he doesn't pay them as much as open borders does.

  12. The free market, like freedom itself, is not free. It needs constant vigilance against crooks and con artists. The subject of this thread is a prime example.

  13. The Star Chamber of Commerce hasn't been traditionally conservative since William Kristol pretended he was.
