In Support of Trump’s Patriotic Education

Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government president Rick Manning issued the following statement in support of President Trump’s announcement on Constitution Day that he will create a commission to promote “patriotic education” and establish a grant to develop a “pro-American curriculum.”

“The left has sold America a big lie. The lie is that politics has no place in our education system. This lie is always directed at conservatives who seek to have our American education system extol the virtues of our nation, while focusing upon the building blocks for critical thinking. Marxist academics succeeded in destroying these very values without any vote of the people or the consent of the governed.

“President Trump is 100% correct in his effort to reestablish the teaching of American foundational principles in our nation’s schools. While the New York Times and the Obama administration common core curriculum writers poison our students with a hate America narrative that runs through our history books, museums and formerly free press, President Trump’s actions are a good first step to teaching real American history to our children.

“The sad truth is that if those of us who know that America is the greatest country that God has ever put on this earth, creating more wealth and freeing more people from the shackles of government slavery than all previous nations combined, don’t stand up to the academic bullies to have this story of America told to our children, America will be lost.

“President Trump deserves a collective thank you from all Americans for taking this stand to begin to fight for the hearts and minds of our children against the torrent of hate spewed by those who profess to teach.”

Trump rapid recovery proves capitalism works

Fairfax, Va.- Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the latest income and rapidly dropping continued unemployment claims numbers:

“2019 demonstrated that capitalism, cutting unnecessary regulations, lower taxes and honest trade deals work together to decrease income inequality and raising average wages by $4,400 in 2019 to a record of $68,700.

“While the impact of the China virus has set our economy back, there can be no doubt that President Trump has the right prescription for continuing the record rebound we are currently experiencing, with 13.8 million jobs recovered since labor markets bottomed in April, and another 1 million Americans off of unemployment benefits the week ending Sept. 5.”

Manning Rejects Trump’s Drug Pricing “Fix”

Sept. 13, 2020

Fairfax, Va. — Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, issued the following statement in response to President Donald J. Trump’s Facebook post today about medicare prescription drug prices:

“I am very disappointed that President Trump chose to pursue the simplistic solution of fixing U.S. pharmaceutical prices to those of socialist foreign governments.  Allowing foreign socialists to set U.S. prices is a profoundly bad idea and will lay one of the final pieces in place for the complete federal takeover of health care.  As we have seen throughout the Chinese-originated virus pandemic, those who control health care can and do justify anything and the public will follow.  It is my fervent hope that President Trump will reconsider this mistake before it gets so ingrained that it cannot be undone.”

President Trump’s Facebook post:

Just signed a new Executive Order to LOWER DRUG PRICES! My Most Favored Nation order will ensure that our Country gets the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries. The days of global free-riding at America’s expense are over and prices are coming down FAST! Also just ended all rebates to middlemen, further reducing prices.

U.S. must not let China stop Pebble Mine that has rare earths we need

Sept. 11, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement of attempts by a Chinese company, J Capital Research to short the Northern Dynasty Minerals stock which owns Pebble Mine:

“A Chinese company that has placed a stock market bet against the development of the Pebble Mine has not surprisingly put out a report attacking the viability of the mining plan.  The battle over the development of the Alaska mine has been at the center of a high profile environmentalist opposition campaign funded by people determined to end the US mineral extraction industry altogether.

“I have been to where Pebble Mine will be, and let me make this clear, if you cannot develop a mind in this desolate location, you will never develop another mine in America.

“There is no surprise that a Chinese firm would be trying to submarine the mine’s future. China has long sought to dominate ownership of rare earth minerals and recently it has been discovered that Pebble Mine would produce a large quantity of a rare earth metal, rhenium, which is instrumental in building aircraft engines. Rare earths are essential for the production of many military and high tech items, and attempts by a Chinese short seller to undermine Pebble Mine should be rejected out of hand.

“Of course, the ultimate irony is the joining of environmentalists and China in opposing a U.S. mine.  Once again we find that many in the environmental establishment are willing to turn a blind eye toward the environmental disaster that is China while seeking to end the development of necessary extraction competitors.  This unholy alliance makes China stronger and the world less safe as the Communist Chinese government would hold the keys to the materials necessary to build our most sophisticated weapons systems, subjecting our nation’s leaders to coercion.

“The truth is that America has many necessary rare earth minerals within our borders just waiting to be mined, and the U.S. government should move forward on approval of Pebble Mine as an important first step in restoring our ability to end our dependency upon a Beijing regime which is engaged in war tactics against us.”

On 9/11, stand for America now or lose it

Sept. 11, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reflecting on the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 by al Qaeda that claimed 2,977 lives:

“19 years ago, America promised to never forget, yet today, the New York City Police Department finds itself being at least partially defunded while the city is under siege by anarchists. The Minneapolis Police Department has been completely defunded. And communist rioters continue to occupy the streets of many other Democrat Party-run cities, burning and looting in an internal rebellion that in some ways comes close to the shock and horror of 9/11 and is tearing this country apart.

“America is the greatest country in world history, and just as we refused to be intimidated by al Qaeda, today we need to stand up and have the same resolve against the Antifa rebellion. But if we fail to stand united against lawlessness and political violence, the idea of America may fall. We are a nation conceived in liberty, where all are created equal with certain unalienable rights. On this day, I encourage every American to read Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, which in 272 words encapsulates the sacrifice, the vision and the reason that was needed to preserve the Union. Keeping America great is not just a slogan, it’s what each of us must commit ourselves to, lest we lose not only our freedom but the shining city on the hill that every human longs to emulate.”

Trump was right, took strong actions to prevent Covid panic, save lives

Sept. 9, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick manning today issued the following statement in response to Bob Woodward’s March 19 out of context quote about not “creat[ing] a panic” six days after President Trump had already declared a national emergency on March 13:

“President Trump has taken unprecedented action since the beginning of the year to slow down the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and save hundreds of thousands of lives, including barring travel from China in late January, from Europe in March, and declaring a national emergency and announcing a national testing solution on March 13 to quell public fears. No President should want to create a national panic, and his stated desire to avoid that to Bob Woodward in a candid interview, while publicly taking strong measures to meet the crisis is what leadership looks like. The more we know about the virus itself, the more it’s clear engaging in quarantines for vulnerable populations makes sense, but for those who are not vulnerable, the President is right to assuage their fears so that America as much as possible can get back to normal.”

Trump takes major leap in defense of human rights, moves to ban China slave labor products

Sept. 9, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration and U.S. Customs & Border Protection moving to block the importation of some Chinese products produced with child and/or slave labor:

“By seeking to block importation of Chinese agriculture and other products produced using child or slave labor , President Trump is taking a great leap forward in defense of human rights. The decades-long abuse by the Chinese government of its people has been well-chronicled by the U.S. Department of Labor report on Childhood and Slave Labor. The President is taking the ground-breaking first step of holding these Chinese slavers accountable.

“Now the president needs to move aggressively to end U.S. investment in Chinese assets through our retirement funds and stock markets. This is why Americans for Limited Government is pushing the DivestChinaNow.org project.

“President Trump’s courage in taking on the Chinese slave trade and their Wall Street enablers is a game changer and the world should applaud him.”

Kamala Has Got Some Explaining to do About Family Business Deals with China

Sept. 8, 2020, Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement regarding a media report tying Kamala Harris’s husband to potentially shady Chinese business deals in the United States:

“Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has some serious questions to answer about her family’s business dealings with China.

“Her husband, Douglas Emhoff, is a partner in DLA Piper’s Intellectual Property and Technology practice, a firm with extensive ties to China.

“Given that China’s intellectual property theft is one of our primary trade issues, it is disconcerting, at best, if her husband has been assisting the Communist Chinese Party in getting around our patent laws.

“What’s more, DLA Piper is directly involved in the financial integration of the United States with China at a time when Americans are demanding that supply chains for items like pharmaceutical products be brought home from China and that our retirement  accounts and other individual investments be protected from unsafe Chinese assets.

“ Harris must provide a full and complete disclosure of her personal ties to Beijing, as China continues its efforts to not only influence U.S. public policy but to achieve economic and military dominance over the United States and indeed the world.”

TIME UPDATED: Conservative Group Trolls Biden at his Rehoboth Beach House from 11am to 2pm

Uses Aerial Advertising for Labor Day Weekend Flyover

Sept. 4, 2020, Fairfax, Va.— Americans for Limited Government (ALG), a conservative political advocacy group, will troll presidential candidate Joe Biden on Labor Day at his Rehoboth, Delaware beach house with an aerial banner promoting their DivestChinaNow.org campaign.

“There’s a good bet Hidin’ Joe Biden will be holed-up in the basement of his Rehoboth Beach house on Labor Day and we want to get his attention,” said Rick Manning, president of ALG. “As vice president, Joe Biden brokered a sweetheart deal with China that could blow up the retirement accounts of millions of hard-working Americans by poisoning them with unaudited, risky Chinese assets. We want Joe to know his China collusion at the expense of Americans is coming to an end.”

DETAILS ON FLYOVER FOR MEDIA:

  • Date: Monday, September 7
  • Place: Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
  • Plane will be flying over the beach for three hours: 11am-2pm ET

Background on Biden’s Sweetheart China Deal

In 2013, Biden orchestrated a deal with the Chinese Communist Party giving Chinese companies access to U.S. capital markets without having to comply with the same strict disclosure regulations required of U.S. companies.  This puts the retirement accounts of millions of Americans at risk because investors have no way of knowing the true value of any of those Chinese investments.

As a result of Biden putting his thumb on the scales in favor of China, as of Feb. 2019, 156 Chinese companies were listed on U.S. exchanges with a market capitalization of $1.2 trillion, according to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

Under the terms of the Obama-Biden Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which came after a series of meetings between Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping (then-Vice President) in 2011 and 2012, U.S. regulators have very little ability to “open the kimono” and look into the books of these Chinese companies.

“There’s no telling when Biden’s ticking time bomb could decimate the retirement savings of millions of Americans,” concluded Manning. “This aerial campaign is just one way that we are moving forward with to inform Americans about Biden’s China-first record.”
