There’s No Resurgence In American Manufacturing. It’s A Myth.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. In a towering act of sycophantry, the National Association of Manufacturers announced Friday that it will be giving Ivanka Trump the organization’s first ever Alexander Hamilton Award for “extraordinary support of manufacturing in America.” The organization made the outrageous claim that “no one”  — no one! — has ever “provided singular leadership and shown an unwavering commitment to modern manufacturing in America” l...

EPA repeals water protections, choosing industry over wetlands

On Thursday, the Trump administration repealed the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, an Obama-era policy designed to protect waterways. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler said the EPA plans to reinstate 1980s water rules. The EPA and U.S. Army will decide this winter which waterways to regulate. “Today’s Step 1 action fulfills a key promise of President Trump and sets the stage for Step 2 — a new WOTUS definition that will provide greater regulatory certainty fo...

The Ten Commandments or ‘Ten Thousand Commandments’

The Ten Commandments or ‘Ten Thousand Commandments’ On Mt. Sinai, the Lord handed Moses the Ten Commandments divinely traced by His own finger. The Torah expounded these into 613 laws; but in 2018 the collected regulations issued by the federal government, known as the Federal Register, took up 61,308 pages. The quantity did nothing to improve the laws’ quality, as the Competitive Enterprise Institute notes in the latest edition of its annual report, Ten T...

Expect manufacturers’ hiring issues to continue, report says

NEW YORK (AP) — The struggle among manufacturers to fill open jobs is likely to continue because of the shrinking labor pool and growing need for workers with high-tech skills. Those are conclusions in a report this month from the National Association of Manufacturers; the NAM is a trade group for manufacturers including thousands of […]

Empirical SCOTUS: Differences between “Obama” and “Trump” judges, while sometimes subtle, can’t be denied

Justices of the Supreme Court rarely give public comments on words or actions of members of the elected branches of the federal government. This made the recent spat between Chief Justice John Roberts and President Donald Trump over the role of partisanship in the federal judiciary all the more surprising and powerful. Although phrased in terse sentences (Trump’s were via Twitter), their words left much to unpack. What began as Trump decrying the decision of an “Obama judge” (a judge appointed b...

Trump’s Odd Trade Deal Press Conference Leaves Many Questions In Its Wake

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s declaration of victory Monday in reaching a preliminary deal with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement raised at least as many questions as it answered. Can Canada, the third member country in NAFTA and America’s No. 2 trading partner, be coaxed or coerced into a new pact? If not, is it even legal — or politically feasible — for Trump to reach a replacement trade deal with Mexico alone? And will the changes being negotiated to th...

Automakers, manufacturers oppose Trump call for auto tariffs

WASHINGTON (AP) — Foreign automakers, American manufacturers and classic-car enthusiasts are coming out against President Donald Trump’s plan to consider taxing imported cars, trucks and auto parts. The National Association of Manufacturers says in a filing with the U.S. Commerce Department that the tariff plan would “put the U.S. manufacturing sector at a global disadvantage, […]

Empirical SCOTUS: The state of the states before the Supreme Court (Corrected)

Rather than originating from a federal court of appeals like the majority of cases before the Supreme Court, the most discussed case of this term came from a state court. Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission was petitioned to the Supreme Court after a decision from the Colorado Court of Appeals, and Colorado’s solicitor general, Frederick Yarger, handled the argument for the respondent, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. As the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court ...

Empirical SCOTUS: Slicing and dicing the court’s 2017 oral arguments

While the Supreme Court is lagging in releasing its decisions this term, the justices wrapped up hearing oral arguments almost a month ago. The justices heard 63 oral arguments between October 2017 and April 2018. Within that block of time, many expectations were reaffirmed and several new paths were blazed. Aside from the accounts of those who sit in the Supreme Court’s pews, the only means we have to gauge interaction at oral argument is through the words spoken by the justices and advocates –...

Scott Pruitt’s science legacy

While Scott Pruitt’s tenure as EPA administrator is uncertain, no matter what is ultimately resolved, he will leave a giant legacy with regard to EPA science. Pruitt has introduced three major new guidelines. The first, from last October, is to rid the Agency’s Science Advisory Boards of conflicts of interest.  The second, from last month, is — when basing regulations on science — to use only science that allows access to its underlying data and methods. The third, and most recent, is to use onl...

Non-Sexy Sectors Are Ripe for Disruption

In the process of looking for a new crop of companies to invest in on behalf of Techstars Kansas City, I thought I should highlight the type of companies I think are undervalued and critical to our economy. In 2017 we invested in Ampogee . The founders of Ampogee realized they had uncovered a solution that could help the manufacturing industry as a whole optimize their workforce and increase productivity by a minimum of 20 percent. My first question was of course, according to my friends...

Trump Addresses Small Business in State of the Union Address, But Leaders Say More is Needed

President Donald Trump noted small business and even invited two small business owners and one of their employees to sit with First Lady Melania Trump to watch the speech. Trump delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night and spent a large portion of that time focused on the economy. And while many small business leaders praised the administration’s efforts thus far, some also added more is needed. Small Business in the State of the Union Here’s what the President said dur...

Friday round-up

Redistricting challenges continue to come before the Supreme Court. Yesterday Pennsylvania asked the Supreme Court to step in and block temporarily a ruling by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania striking down the state’s federal congressional map. With commentary at the Lock Law Blog, Ryan Lockman argues that “there is a minimal chance that [the state] will convince Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kennedy and the three remaining conservatives to encroach on state sovereignty in such a fashion, ...

Opinion analysis: Challenges to the WOTUS rule must begin in district court

The federal government’s attempts to define the statutory phrase “waters of the United States” — and in turn, to establish the geographic reach of the federal government’s regulatory authority under the Clean Water Act — have repeatedly spurred litigation over the years. Most recently, when the Obama administration issued the “Clean Water Rule,” also known as the Waters of the United States Rule, over 100 parties across the country sued to challenge it. In today’s opinion in National Association...

A “view” from the courtroom: Open for business, with a hiccup

Today is the first weekday of the federal government shutdown, but few court-watchers are surprised that the Supreme Court is open for business. As Andrew Hamm reported for this blog on Sunday, the court operated as usual during the 2013 and 1995 government shutdowns, even conducting its entire two-week argument session in October of 2013. Although the federal courts get some of their budgets from a congressional appropriation, they can operate for about three weeks on court-fee balances and oth...

Argument analysis: Wading through the “themeless pudding” of Clean Water Act jurisdiction

The scope of the federal government’s regulatory authority under the Clean Water Act has long been controversial. Stretch it too far, and it appears that the federal government can regulate every puddle in the nation; narrow it too much, and the government is left unable to protect the quality of interconnected waters. For that reason, each time the government has promulgated a rule defining the act’s geographic scope — as it did in the 2015 “Clean Water Rule” — lawsuits quickly follow. In yeste...

Argument preview: Justices to determine how Clean Water Act litigation flows

For decades, the scope of the federal government’s regulatory authority under the Clean Water Act has been a flashpoint for debate. In 2015, the Obama administration promulgated the “Clean Water Rule,” the most recent of several attempts to define the act’s geographic scope. By defining the key statutory term “waters of the United States,” the rule determines, among other issues, which water bodies are subject to the act’s discharge limitations and permitting requirements. Over 100 parties flood...

As Puerto Rico Reels, Trump Fixates On Island's 'Tremendous' Debt

During brief remarks Friday on the continuing aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump maintained his laser focus on the country’s debt. He also defended the federal effort to bring aid to the territory, pointing out how Puerto Rico being surrounded by “big water, ocean water” presents unique challenges. Though the island is still reeling from the hurricane, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm over a week ago, Trump has spent an inordinate amount of his attention...
