Most haven’t been publicly identified and only a few have been charged. Experts say it’s up to police chiefs to strike a balance between maintaining their officers’ First Amendment rights and dealing with community mistrust of those officers who were on the scene in Washington.last_img read more

King says Pelosi doesn’t appear to be resistant to USMCA

first_imgLE MARS — Republican Congressman Steve King says it’s up to Republicans to reach across the aisle and get more Democrats in the U.S. House to support the United States Mexico Canada Agreement.“Let’s just work the political situation,” King says. “…In the end, it’s an up-or-down vote, non-amendable and a take-it-or-leave-it situation, so I think we’re going to end up taking it.”Mexico has already ratified the deal and Canada’s government has started the ratification process. King says during a recent meeting with President Trump’s top trade adviser, he got the impression House Speaker Nancy Pelosi supports the USMCA.“First I thought that she would be resistent and delay because I didn’t think that she wanted to see President Trump get a win…until the time I sat down with Ambassador Lighthizer who had not even an inflection in his voice that he was frustrated with Speaker Pelosi,” King says.King, though he’s a “yes” on the USMCA, suggests keeping the North American Free Trade Agreement in force would be good for Iowa’s economy.“I never would have opened that trade agreement up…NAFTA was good for Iowa agriculture and good for Iowa manufacturing, but not so good for other states across the country,” King says.Mexico and Canada are Iowa’s top two trading partners.King made his comments during an interview at the Plymouth County Fair.last_img read more

Indicator lag hints at slower economy

first_imgWASHINGTON – An important gauge of the country’s future economic activity dipped in April, suggesting slower growth ahead. The Conference Board, a private research group, reported Thursday that its Index of Leading Economic Indicators, fell 0.1 percent, to 138.9, last month. Economists were predicting a small rise. In March, the index climbed 0.4 percent, to 139. The index is closely watched because it predicts economic activity over the next three months to six months. Economists said the slide reinforces the Federal Reserve’s forecast that growth probably will moderate to a more sustainable pace. New applications filed for unemployment insurance shot up by a seasonally adjusted 42,000, to 367,000, for the week ending May 13. That was the highest level of claims since early October. Last week’s number, however, was inflated by layoffs related to the shutdown, now resolved, a department analyst said. If not for the flood of jobless claims filings from the shutdown, last week’s claims would have stood at a seasonally adjusted level of about 312,000 last week, the department analyst estimated. It would have been considerably closer to economists’ forecasts for claims to have come in about 318,000. Although it was difficult to divine any fresh clues about the health of the overall labor market in Thursday’s jobless claims report, another important barometer, released in early May, showed job growth slowed in April. Employers expanded payrolls by just 138,000 in April, the smallest growth since October. The unemployment rate held steady at 4.7 percent last month. The Fed boosted interest rates last week for the 16th time in two years to keep inflation from getting out of control. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke did not predict the future of interest rates, but said the once-growing housing market seems set for a safe landing.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Analysts expect growth will slow about 3 percent to 3.5 percent in the second and third quarters – a still healthy mark. “The index is flashing not a recession but a slowing in growth, which is a welcome sign. Unfortunately, we are not seeing an accompanying moderation in inflation yet,” said Lynn Reaser, chief economist at Bank of America’s Investment Strategies Group. On Wall Street, stocks slumped. Investors could not shake Wednesday’s inflation scare, which sent the Dow Jones industrial average on its biggest one-day drop in three years. The Dow on Thursday lost 77.32 points to close at 11,128.29. The decline in the Conference Board’s index comes as the housing market is slowing, energy prices are rising and consumer confidence is sagging. April’s index reading was weighed down by a drop in building permits, a dip in consumer expectations and a rise in filings for jobless benefits. In a separate report, the Labor Department said the number of people signing up for those benefits rose sharply last week mainly due to the lingering effects of a partial government shutdown in Puerto Rico. last_img read more
