John Glenn’s widow says she misses him “terribly” and was touched by the outpouring of love and support when he died 2 months ago. Annie Glenn turned ninety-seven on Friday. On Thursday, she made her first public appearance since her husband’s memorial service, a reception at OH State University’s John Glenn College of Public Affairs. John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth, died Dec. eight at the age of ninety-five.

U.S. wants stronger India economic, defense ties given China's rise: Tillerson

WDCHawaiindiaGuatemalaON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said before a visit to Indiana next week that the Trump administration wanted to “dramatically deepen” cooperation with New DEL, seeing it as a key partner in the face of CN’s negative influence in Asia.

Critics may carp that Donald Trump skipped economics class, like a certain one thousand, nine hundred and eightys movie truant. But as the fourty-fiveth president himself notes, Abraham Lincoln and other historic Republican leaders loved tariffs. “This bill is an American bill. It is made for the American people and for American interests.” That sounds like President Trump.

Annie Glenn told The Associated Press that losing her husband of seventy-three years has been difficult. It’s just awful, because we’ve known each other since we were two years old, and he and I, we were both on the same side, he was always helping me, with the kids and everything,” she said. “I really miss him terribly. There’s nothing I can do about it.”

Speaking on Wednesday, less than a month before President Donald Trump is due to make his first visit to CN, Tillerson said the US had begun discussions on creating alternatives to Chinese infrastructure financing in Asia. In another comment likely to upset Beijing, he said WV saw room to invite others, including AU, to join U.S.-Indiana-JP security cooperation, something Beijing has opposed as an attempt by democracies to gang up on it. The remarks coincide with the start of a week-long Chinese Communist Party congress at which President Xi Jinping is seeking to further consolidate his power.

But it’s William McKinley – another “America First” Republican president – on his Tariff Act of one thousand, eight hundred and ninety. When McKinley slapped high duties on United States imports, some fellow conservatives thought the powerful OH congressman dubbed the “Napoleon of Protection” had gone too far. “It is the most shameful measure ever proposed to a civilised people,” fumed Secretary of State James Blaine. “Go on with it and it will carry our nation to perdition.”

John Glenn’s body lay in repose at the OH Statehouse before a public service attended by hundreds, including the U.S. vice president, current and former OH governors and other dignitaries. “Wasn’t that special? I didn’t expect that at all,” she said. “It was very touching.” Annie Glenn couldn’t quite say how her public pace may change now that John is gone and she has recovered after a recent fall.

“The US seeks constructive relations with CN, but we will not shrink from CN’s challenges to the rules-based order and where CN subverts the sovereignty of neighboring countries and disadvantages the U.S. and our friends,” Tillerson told the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

White House economic adviser Gary Cohn might well echo that view in regard to current policy. Cohn, a Democrat, is to quit after losing a battle against Trump’s tariff. Congressional Republicans are also imploring the president to drop the plan. It wasn’t just McKinley who believed protectionism key to American greatness. Tariffs were the Republican creed from the Civil War to the Great Depression, and a fundamental doctrine of its preceding party, the Whigs. Going even further back, the first United States Treasury Secretary Alexander HLZ, now a Broadway musical hero, pioneered tariffs to protect infant American industries from foreign competition. So did fellow Founding Father James Madison.

“We always went to things together, and so it’s simply .,” she said, reflecting. “I just can’t explain to you what I have to go through.” Glenn said she fell about a month ago and has been recovering from the pain of 3 broken ribs and compressed vertebrae. She said she was “out and about” and hurrying when she slipped.

He urged Indiana to embrace its potential as a leader in international security and said WV was prepared to help strengthen its defense capabilities. CN, a strategic rival to both the US and Indiana, is also vital to Trump’s efforts to roll back KP’s efforts to create nuclear-tipped missiles capable of reaching the US, an issue expected to top the agenda in Trump’s Nov. eight-ten Beijing visit. A senior State Department official defended the timing of the speech, noting Tillerson also said he wanted a constructive relationship with CN.

Charles Hankla, professor of political science at GE State University, says Republicans from the mid-nineteenth Century onwards continued to champion such a fiscal firewall so northern manufacturers could compete with European imports. Democrats, he says, espoused free trade as they were aligned with southern slave-owning plantations that exported cotton to British mills. It was Abraham Lincoln who inaugurated the Republican party’s economic nationalism. Yes, the Great Emancipator was also the Great Protectionist.

On Thursday, she moved slowly, but on her own, using a walker. Accompanied by her daughter, Lyn, Glenn kissed hands and chatted cheerfully as several dozen faculty, staff and students celebrated her birthday over cake and coffee. Glenn apologized for being unable to recognize people because of her failing eyesight. Lyn Glenn said she and her brother, David, have been taking turns visiting their mother at her high-rise condo in CMH about once a month since their father died, traveling from their respective homes in MN and CA.

“We have an international order that is under various stresses,” said the official. “For many decades the US has supported CN’s rise,” he said. “We’ve also supported Indiana’s rise. But those 2 countries have risen very differently.” Tillerson did not say what he meant by creating an alternative to Chinese infrastructure financing, but said the Trump administration had begun a “quiet conversation” with some emerging East Asian democracies at a summit in August. He said Chinese financing was saddling countries with “enormous” debts and failing to create jobs.

“Give us a protective tariff and we will have the greatest nation on earth,” he said in one thousand, eight hundred and fourty-four. While Trump is sometimes accused of economic illiteracy, Abe himself once apparently exhibited a flimsy grasp of his pet policy while campaigning for Congress in IL. Tariffs would only be collected from “those whose pride, whose abundance of means, prompt them to spurn the manufacturers of our own country and strut in British cloaks and coats and pantaloons”, he insisted, according to a biography of him by David Herbert Donald.

“We think it’s important that we begin to develop some means of countering that with alternative financing measures.” ”We will not be able to compete with the kind of terms that CN offers, but countries have to decide what are they willing to pay to secure their sovereignty and their future control of their economies and we’ve had those discussions with them as well,” he said.

A journalist challenged Lincoln on the stump to explain why he thought these duties would make everything cheaper for farmers. Theodore Roosevelt was another Republican president who extolled tariffs as a buttress to American power, according to a biography of him by Edmund Morris. In one thousand, eight hundred and ninety-five, the Rough Rider wrote: “In this country pernicious indulgence in the doctrine of free trade seems inevitably to produce fatty degeneration of the moral fibre.”

Despite protectionism’s naysayers, the Gilded Age was 1 of fabulous prosperity. Political scientists still debate whether the boom was helped or hindered by all those import taxes. It took 2 world wars and an international economic cataclysm in the first half of the twentyth Century to convert conservatives to free trade.

Heather Cox Richardson, author of To Make Men Free: a History of the Republican Party, says: “All of the people coming out of the Depression and World War Two are terrified of starting that again. “So Republicans and Democrats actually begin to look very much alike in terms of their economic policies.” In the nineteen50s, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower unabashedly touted free trade as a means to bind the West together in a bulwark against communism. By doing so, he ushered in the modern era of globalisation.

Every Republican leader since has been a pragmatic free trader, even if the siren song of populism has at times proved too potent to resist. Richard Nixon experimented with duties on United States imports. Ronald Reagan slapped a tariff on JPese motorcycles. George W Bush targeted steel imports, only to back down after the World Trade Organization threatened sanctions. Bush’s trade debacle confirmed the worst fears of many grassroots conservatives.

Some Republicans have remained deeply suspicious of multilateral agreements since the aftermath of World War One, says Richardson, a history professor at BOS College. They fretted that these pacts would establish “One World Order, that free traders were going to destroy America by letting foreigners come in and call the shots”. “There was also resentment among people who believed they were being left behind in the post-World War Two order,” she adds. “And that is the concept Donald Trump capitalised on.”

One result of Trump’s recent policy is that a notorious nineteen30 trade law – remembered in popular culture for its amusing cameo in a cinema classic – is back in the spotlight. The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, a Republican measure that imposed hundreds of United States import duties, is generally agreed to have worsened the Great Depression. In the nineteen86 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, this bill is the subject of a lecture to catatonically bored high school students.

They warn he risks reigniting the beggar-thy-neighbour trade wars waged amid the ruination of the global economy 9 decades ago. The multi-billion dollar question is, when and where will Trump’s tariff end? It’s anyone’s guess.

  1. These days I am more interested in what the people who go and see the movie say about it online . The internet has really replaced the need for proffessional critics .
    The movie was amazing. If you really pay attention and listen it is an excellent film, easily smarter and more detailed than the regular comic book film.

  2. The problem with saying something is “debunked by ‘leading’ scientists” is that you can turn around and find just as many scientists who take the opposite side in this debate. Like the global warming/climate change issue, this is not settled debate, and there are just as many who have good points on both sides of the issue. I understand that people do not like the opposing sides in these debates, but it is not fair to allow only one side to be heard until scientists can prove CONCLUSIVELY that vaccinations are a good thing without any dangerous side effects, or that climate change is caused to a large degree by man, and has a man-made basis. All points of view should be shared equally so people can make their own minds for themselves.
    Totally agree it takes time to tell a story. That is why the book is often better that the movie. The best movies are always long. Gettysburg, Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, Gone with the Wind and Lonesome Dove. The dumbing down of America never ceases to amaze me. No I am not saying this movie ranks with those but i really liked the movie.
    failure? are you stupid or just ignorant?

  3. Congratulations, you’ve removed all doubt.
    I’ll help you out with that – it is right.
    What style? I don’t see any style at all … not that she has to have any … but why post pictures of something that’s not there?

  4. Over? C’mon! The market is saturated. Just because the majority of people are happy with what they got, and not just throwing it away, and you think it is OVER? I’m sure she has a meth habit,,,she walks and talks like she’s on heiron..
    Thank you for this honest insight.

  5. We’re not like you so don’t worry. No one is going to read one article then go burn a mosque. That’s called projection btw.
    I’m not sure why you bring up that blowhard.
    I like that.

    Most people could care less. Anyone offended by mere words are weak anyways.
    Orville! Thank you for saying what I wanted to say only better!

  7. william–its so easy to do
    Wow, you don’t get the point at all. Look beyond your tiny little world.
    Good start. Now euthanize them.

  8. Would you like to rephrase your question in logical English? I’m not sure what you are asking, but care enough to wonder.
