    The Carolina Statesman

    FRANCE SUBORDINATES CHURCH TO THE STATE The dual-faced revolution in France which claims to advance the 'rights of man' has passed their so-called Civil Constitution of the Clergy in which the church within France must be subordinate and profess loyalty to the French government. Church property has been seized without compensation and bishops, priests, and other members of the church are being forced to swear an oath that the nation of France has authority over religious matters. What folly has gripped the French hearts that they would suppose their government could dictate matters that pertain to God? While we have some in our American nationhood that call for the separation of church and state, many at the front of power in the French nation clearly want church and state bound together, but that the state should stand above God and the church. We must be on guard against such radical measures here in the American nation, and not permit the church to become another arm of the government. Congress must make no laws proclaiming an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise; the French revolution has done both and are even now engorging themselves in a 'Fête de la Fédération', wherein they gluttonously consume food in celebration of their revolution which is resulting in the corruption of the concepts of liberty and freedom. Treaty of Reichenbach Signed by Prussia and Austria Prussia and Austria have recently signed a treaty wherein Austria would return certain territories they seized from the Ottoman Empire, as well as several other terms. As a result, Prussia will provide compensation to the Austrians for certain territories and other diplomatic points. It is well that our American nation should refrain from entangling itself in such convoluted European affairs. While some may advocate for American alliances with various European powers, such as England, France, or others, it seems clear that there is little that can be gained from any potential participation on our part in such matters.

    H 1-13. Naturalization Act of 1789

    Aye on the Masterson amendment, Mr. Speaker, I find the proposed amendment by the gentlemen to be rather non-germane and self-contradictory. First, the proposed amendment was one of style meant to improve readability. Second, his newly proposed amendment to the amendment would allow slaves to become citizens, which would serve to advance an agenda he purports to be against. If slaves can be citizens, they would need to be counted as such for apportionment purposes, which was a matter of great debate that nearly resulted in the collapse of the recent constitutional convention. I don't think it would be appropriate to revisit such a question at this time. Further, the idea that a slave a citizen is simply folly; A slave can not be relied upon to contribute to the body politic, they would simply vote how their masters tell them to. No slave can be a proper citizen of a nation composed of free men, it is an utter contradiction, thus there need not be an process that allows a slave to become a citizen. If a freed or former slave were to desire to become a naturalized citizen, then perhaps a process could be created for such a circumstance, but obviously they would be freemen, not slaves. But such a process did not appear to be the aim of this bill, thus it seems improper to try to impose such a measure on this bill. I yield.

    Faulhammer on EU Trade

    Kurt Faulhammer From the Office of House Minority Leader Kurt Faulhammer President Fitzgerald is on the right path in looking beyond eliminating just the retaliatory tariffs placed on the United States by the European Union. Not only are there tariffs placed on many American goods to the European Union, there is even more non-tariff barriers and regulations that unfairly disadvantage American businesses in the European market. Issues such as restrictive licensing and permitting at borders, and unwarranted technical barriers, sanitary and phytosanitary measures taken beyond borders hold American businesses back from reaching their full potential. These issues need to be addressed in any negotiations with EU officials. Real free trade that looks beyond just the issues of tariffs will bring great wealth to both the EU and the United States. For years we've tried to get a deal done but nothing solid has come from the talks. I hope the President and his staff will fight to finally get a free trade deal done with the European Union because our trade with them is greater than any other partner we have. View full PR

    As prices go up because of tariffs the American people have a simple question “Can you afford four more of Fitz?”

    As President, I’ll use Executive Orders to terminate Fitzgerald’s follies. Then we’ll let Congress be the lawmaking body. #Constitutionalism

    I am proud to have announced my candidacy for President along with Speaker Knox, whom I wish all the best in this race. #FufillTheAmericanPromise (1/2) Let's strive to end the "Imperial Presidency" and instead allow for Congress to do its job, not the President in crafting and passing legislation. #FufillTheAmericanPromise (2/2)

    Hello again and welcome to yet another special, online segment from APR. I'm Michael Moonwilkins. The reports from inside the EU that reported a deal to lower tariffs between their union and ours has now been denied by both the EU and President Fitzgerald, with EU President Junker claiming that the mentioned report came from a staffer who has since been fired. It appears that the tariffs still stand, and this tumultuous affair is far from over. Negotiations are still open, and other countries have yet to react, so we will see where this economic brinksmanship will bring us. Tune in to APR as we cover it all! And, assuming there are no more special segments, listen next week to hear our interview with Senate Minority Leader Mark Rambor.

    @JudgeTruboenski says he would repeal EO’s that enforce antidumping laws and prohibit conflicts of interest in the executive branch.

    White House: No EU Trade Deal Yet

    Kyle Fitzgerald The White House For Immediate Release Washington, DC – White House Press Secretary Audrey Van Horn denied reports of a trade deal being reached between the United States and the European Union. “Any report of an exemption being made for the European Union on the steel and aluminum tariffs is false and inaccurate. No such agreement has been reached. We are still working on an agreement that will be much better for America than the one inaccurately described to the media. We look forward to reaching an agreement that not only removes the newly added tariffs on US goods but also removes pre-existing tariffs on US goods such as the 10 percent tariff on US car imports, the 17 percent tariff on US apples and the 20 percent tariff on US grapes. EU tariffs on a wide range of American goods already existed long before the president enacted steel and aluminum tariffs on foreign imports. We look forward to removing those barriers on American products, and that is only possible if we adopt a trade policy that stands up for American companies and workers.” View full PR

  20. Karl Cox Karl Cox (D-TN) spoke to reporters on the steps of the Capitol today, saying the following: I studied economics in college. One of the most important principles in the discipline is that people function off of incentives, so if you want people to do what you want, you have to incentivize them to work with you. I wonder what sort of incentive structure President Fitzgerald has set up here. He put in unnecessary tariffs, only to give take them away for the EU when they retaliated. So what would you do if you were China then? Retalitate harder. That’s surely what they will do, and if President Fitzgerald is smart, he’ll take those tariffs down too. So then what was it all for? I’m not sure. But before someone gets hurt, let’s stop playing this game and end the tariffs. View full PR

    Knox Campaign Stop in Ames

    Two questions- one answer for you sir. Because I’m wanting to work with everybody. Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, anyone. We can’t be naive enough to think that Democrats are the only ones with good ideas. We need to work together for all Americans.
  23. John Knox I was just briefed about the situation in with the EU and I want to thank the President for listening to the more reasonable voices in his administration. Tariffs will only hurt the American economy and walking back from this idea and admitting he’s wrong is a good step in the right direction. He needs to continue that trajectory and end them totally to protect our Asian allies as well. View full PR
