CR: Brexit architect and UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage was enjoying the spotlight at European Parliament Tuesday, as a he told a jeering crowd that he now has had the last laugh. Farage took the moment to preach the benefits of free trade, and to warn the EU of the cost of cutting off trade partnerships with the UK.
“We – between your countries and my country – do an enormous amount of business in goods and services. That trade is mutually beneficial to both of us. That trade matters.”
“If you were to decide to cut off your noses, to spite your faces, and to reject any idea of a sensible trade deal, the consequences would be far worse for you than it would be for us,” Farage told a scoffing crowd of MEPs.

And here's one who doesn't know history much less what the hell he's talking about. On the contrary, he's mimicking Hillary Clinton!
"We have a battle within the Republican Party between those who believe in liberty, property rights and capitalism, and progressive populists dressing themselves up as nationalists. Free market capitalism is the way up the ladder to success and offers Americans jobs and opportunity. Protectionism and tariffs are a great way to destroy the economy and empower bureaucrats." ~ Mark Levin, 6/27/16CR: Donald Trump gave a major "economic freedom" speech Tuesday in Pennsylvania during which he touted tariffs and protectionism while blasting free trade.
Mark Levin has denounced Trump's phony "America First" trade policy before and didn't hold back Tuesday night on his radio program either. Levin compared Trump's speech to one that could've been given by the likes of Herbert Hoover or Pat Buchanan.
Even worse, Levin said "Trump is mimicking Hillary Clinton" with his trade and economic policies, who in turn "is mimicking Bernie Sanders." That's why Trump continues to reach out to Sanders supporters, Levin suggests, because his views on trade are actually similar to that off of the democratic-socialist.
On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, Donald Trump gave a speech that could’ve been given by the likes of Herbert Hoover or Pat Buchanan. Trump was cherry picking quotes from the Founding Fathers and Lincoln to support his tariff policy. All tariffs will do is to create more government and more centralization. Why not trade tariffs for the federal income tax? But not tariffs on top on income taxes. Trump is now mimicking Hillary Clinton with his trade and economic policies, who in turn is mimicking Bernie Sanders. That’s why Trump continues to reach out to Sanders supporters because his views on trade are actually similar to that of the democratic-socialist. In addition, countries have the capacity to retaliate and they did 85 years ago against Smoot-Hawley. The result was devastating and should be proof enough that tariffs will not help the average blue collar worker but harm them. They are a tax on the working man and woman. Also, Reagan policies resulted in the greatest burst of economic growth post Industrial Revolution, not protectionism. Trump is not going to bring jobs back to America through protectionist policies. Trump is a Herbert Hoover, Hillary Clinton protectionist tariff guy.
"It was fitting that Donald Trump appeared to be standing in front of a mess of commingled recycled trash while he delivered his trade policy speech. Because his plan appears mostly recycled from the platform of Hillary Clinton." ~ Amanda CarpenterAmazing how one outspoken voice in Europe promotes moving out of the socialism that's crippled the Old World for decades, while another here at home works towards introducing the New World to the same trash heap...
