World International Affairs Washington’s trade deficit with Beijing has increased dramatically in the 17 years since China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO), costing the U.S. millions of jobs across all 50 states, a new report has shown. The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington, D.C-based nonprofit, released a report on Chinese and U.S. trade relations on Tuesday, outlining the impact of China’s rapid growth, which led it to become the world’s second largest economy. Between 2001, when Beijing joined the WTO, and 2017, U.S.-China trade has cost 3.4 million American jobs, with losses occurring not just in every state, but also in every Congressional district.

Millions of taxpayers dollars trafficked through food stamp fraud went to terrorists who funded their activities at home and abroad, according to an explosive report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, highlighted several instances where money obtained through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits fraud went to fund acts of terrorism, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.Although this method of using food stamp fraud money for terrorism has been around since the 1980s, it gained notoriety when New York City detectives testified before a Senate subcommittee about the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
