  • Trump Invokes Section 301

    by coldwarrior ( 115 Comments › )
    Filed under China, Donald Trump, Economy, Open thread at August 14th, 2017 - 6:30 pm

    Finally, I’ve waited too many years for a President to do this. The free ride for China and the rest is now over. Now starts the investigation and retaliation for dumping billions of dollars  goods on our shores, stolen ideas, violated property rights, and outright theft of US technology.

    SECTION 301

    Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 provides the United States with the authority to enforce trade agreements, resolve trade disputes, and open foreign markets to U.S. goods and services. It is the principal statutory authority under which the United States may impose trade sanctions on foreign countries that either violate trade agreements or engage in other unfair trade practices. When negotiations to remove the offending trade practice fail, the United States may take action to raise import duties on the foreign country’s products as a means to rebalance lost concessions.

    The list of products on which the United States raises import duties is called a “retaliation list.” Products included on a retaliation list are carefully selected to minimize the adverse impact on U.S. consumers, firms, and workers. I&A’s Office of Trade Negotiations and Analysis is responsible for developing all retaliation lists implemented by the United States Trade Representative.

     

    Listen to President Trumps comments very carefully:

     

    This received just about ZERO press today. Why is that? Well, we can’t have the American Citizens understanding what just happened to them over the past 30 years. If the press covered it, they would have to state why 301 is being invoked. By stating why, that lets the cat out of the bag for the people who don’t follow this sort of economic action…meaning, most folks.  The people would have to be told how they got played like SUKKAZ by the GOPe and the Democrats…and well, we can’t have that sort of info getting out. SO the Press will ignore this.

      After signing the presidential memorandum, Trump handed a ceremonial pen to Raytheon CEO Thomas Kennedy. Raytheon makes anti-missile systems like those the U.S. has recently deployed in South Korea — systems that Trump wants to increase spending for in the wake of North Korea’s latest threats.

      BWAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

      by invoking 301, trump has directed Commerce to start acting on the dumping of goods and stealing of our ideas/tech.

      the chinese let you build a factory in turn, they get all of the trade secrets from you and then turn around and make cheap knock-offs of your goods and sell them in the international market. you arent allowed in unless you do this.

      this theft is the biggest load of bullshit that i have ever seen in trade. this is not want adam smith had in mind. the chinese dont have a leg to stand on nor will they survive without the american market.

      they are painted into a corner.

      There you go again, confusing ignorance with willful dishonesty. It is not that they are ignorant of what Adam Smith had in mind, they are dishonest in their application of and articulation of what Adam Smith had in mind.

      By dishonest in their application what I mean, is that they know what Adam Smith intended, but intentionally engage in practices that abuse the principals Adam Smith laid out in way that benefit them personally.

      The bureaucrats and political class in America have not been duped or taken advantage of by China or anyone else. Even the large multinational corporations are not being duped. Palms are being greased, graft is taking place, bribes are being received. The economic disadvantage America is suffering is so that a select few corrupt bureaucrats, politicians and corporate individuals can receive their payoffs.

      These so called ultra pure principled conservative #NeverTrump assholes fully understand how the system is suppose to work, and how it really does work. Their ultra pure principled conservative #NeverTrump stance is as bought and paid for as a George Soros rent a mob.

      The phrase “as it leaves you owning very little afterward” made me laugh.

      Eldest daughter Bunkessa is in town, hadn’t seen her in months. The topic of Charlottesville and #BlackLivesMatter came up and I said that both BLM and the neonazi/white supremacists were racists. She claimed that blacks were being persecuted by white police, and I called her on it. She asked for proof.

      So rather than go into a long search for statistics, I gave her a link to this interview between Sheriff David Clarke and CNN’s Don Lemon from a few years ago:

      https://youtu.be/dAu44wVgb58

      She said she wouldn’t watch it because he ran a prison with human rights violations… so I included his Wiki page and told her that Sheriff Clarke was a Democrat. [Nope. Not gonna read it.]

      Then she handed me a book, over 800 pages, titled “Lonesome Dove” and asked me to read it. I handed her my copy of Dr. Thomas Sowell’s “Black Rednecks and White Liberals” and asked her to read that, and she refused.

      The indoctrinated liberal mind is never been open to opposing views.

      One day she’ll wake up. Or maybe never.

      its turning into Cruz porn.

      but i choose to deal in facts. its a fact that he didnt even come close to wining the primary, NOT EVEN CLOSE. so all of this masturbation by the cruz peeps is starting to get a bit weird. it is even more bizare given that he would not have beat hillary in the general.

      so it comes to this, and it has always been the case, the right, just like the left has their own taliban. the left’s taliban has been puling down statues and trying to erase history, the right’s taliban follow the prophet cruz, badmouth those who do not follow the prophet, and deny the reality that is occurring right before their eyes.

      So I heard that there has been some sightings of Norks moving stuff around and no one has seen L’il Psycho Bitch in public for awhile, which is consistent w/previous pre-launch behavior. Now I wonder – Li’l Psycho Bitch may just have gone to his reward and all that moving around of ‘stuff’ may have been adoption of defensive posture until the new guy is ready to appear on the world stage to introduce himself.

      Rabbis, imams and ministers will join together – 1,000 of us – as we push for continued civil and social justice rights, hold this administration accountable for its efforts to roll back progress and unite to show the world what America truly stands for. Those filled with hate gathered at the statue of Robert E Lee; we will gather at the statue of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

      from VDH

      In sum, the Democratic Party has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. It is doubling down on exactly what lost it the Blue Wall.

      Ditto the Republican NeverTrump establishment that seeks to recapture relevance by reemphasizing exactly what lost it influence in 2016. The argument that Trump, the man, is so beyond moral redemption that Trump’s agenda is irrelevant will not fly with those who feel that they are already better off than in 2016. And the idea that conservative populism is a temporary deviation from a winning and properly orthodox Jeb Bush conservatism is delusional.

      I doubt Bill Kristol is listening

      Seems to be the thing to do these days. Virtue signaling by CEO’s. One expects this from the crony capitalists at Google and Apple. Walmart is surprising, showing he does not know his customer base. Same thing with Raytheon CEO when the transgender ban was announced — he came out with pretty much the same speech as the Walmart CEO. Exact same words about respect and diversity.

      Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t need the POTUS to be a moral guide post. My parents taught me how to grow my own, I don’t need anyone else’s.

      As for Krauthammer characterizing Trump’s remarks as a ‘moral disgrace’ – he’s entitled to his opinion, but I’m noticing that NONE of these people got upset when Obama said those Boston cops ‘acted stupidly’ or when he said he wanted to wait for facts.

      What kind and how? In 2012, my SR-556 blew up on me; I believe a timing problem was to blame, had had several jams prior to that where the shell stuck tight in the chamber. Never shot reloads, this was factory ammo. I think the bolt was releasing slightly before it should have, causing the case to expand as the chamber was exposed.

      Not sure what brand it was. Pretty sure it was operator error, though.

      This guy had a .300 AAC upper that he was trying out, and had some problems with it not feeding properly. He took it off the line and swapped the upper for a 5.56 one. Fired about 6 rounds just fine. The seventh round blew the left side off of the upper, mangled the bolt, and blew out the magazine floor plate.

      When I left, they were still trying to remove the bolt, but the consensus of opinion was that he had somehow gotten a .300 AAC round mixed in with the 5.56 ammo.

      He was really lucky, mainly due to the way the range was set up. It’s an indoor range, with individual stalls, but we weren’t using them. They had a couple of barrels set up a few yards forward of the regular firing line, and only 2 people shot at a time. That thing exploded with enough force to propel the side of the receiver all the way past the other shooter.

      If we’d been using the regular firing positions, it would have bounced right back into his face off the side partition.

      Only three generations from the inception of abolition to the Emancipation Proclamation that freed no slaves in the North, and since the South seceded, freed no slaves there either.

      It would not have worked. Your point about economic inequality is not quite there. There certainly was economic inequality but it was due primarily to the fact that the south was an economic monoculture. Primarily agricultural and very few crops even then, cotton of course, some peanuts altho I’m not sure how common that crop was.

      That farming practice resulted in soil that was utterly depleted and they didn’t know then what we know now about soil science. The south would have failed economically because all it had was a monoculture agriculture that was destroying the soil.

      The gov’t could have bought all the slaves the south asked for and it would have changed nothing.
