Carly Fiorina: The Contrary Opinion Against Tariffs (video, right), Fox Business

CS Commentary: We were Carly supporters before we were Trump supporters, and we like her. But, the present round of tariffs has no comparison to Smoot Hawley (see Top 5 Reasons for Current Market Correction). In addition, there is no ‘free trade’ currently, ‘without the tariffs’ (since Europe, China and other nations have unilaterally been putting tariffs on US products for decades). To pretend like there is, is ludicrous. Of course, the Chinese are currently at the table because our tariffs are hurting and will hurt their economy. It is hard to know where Carly is coming from with this argument – another run for President in 2020, perhaps?

The Pope Is The Problem: Francis Has Mobilized Papacy Power Against Justice, Krumholz/Delahunty, The Federalist

Quote: “For all their deference to one another, the majority of the bishops appear to be good men who are seeking to do justice. But the dark center within that silver lining is the pope who commanded them to stand down. There is a rot and a stench coming from the Vatican. The pope is the problem.”

Exclusive Poll: Most Trusted News Anchors, Jeremy Barr, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: Here’s a poll that explains a lot. Americans still don’t get that trusting NBC and CNN anchors means that they are buying into leftist propaganda – not only in presentation, but in selection of the news topics. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams at Fox News score highest in the ‘Some trust’ category. Hmm.

CS Commentary: This review is way too positive from our perspective. Blunt was overly stern and serious throughout and we all kept waiting for just one catchy song – it never came. Best (genuine) musicals of the last decade: The Greatest Showman, and Moulin Rouge, probably in that order.

7 Things You Should Always Wear On A Plane, Caroline Costello, Smarter Travel

CS Commentary: Layers is one of the best tips – and always dress lighter than needed with extra layers in your carry-on. You’ll usually work up a sweat getting to the airport and your gate on time with luggage in hand. In addition, if you’re taking more than carry-ons anywhere these days, you just don’t know how to pack or travel. There is absolutely no need for the risk of checking bags, especially on long, international flights.
