  • Trump Proposes Solution Open

    “The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades,” Trump said at a press conference on the second day of a two-day summit in Canada.
    He said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

    “You go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy free,” he said. “I did suggest it and people I guess were going to go back to the drawing board.”

      ROTFLMAO Every other nation on earth wants “Free Trade” with the United States of America right up until the United States makes that “Free Trade” universally equal.

      Trump says… Take your damn thumb off the scale or we are putting ours on exactly the same. Now we will see what everyone else has to say…

      That’ll be interesting. The US will need to cut a few regulations & taxes but I’m fine with that.

      @ right_wing2:

      regs & taxes?? Think SUBSIDIES. Our agricultural subsidies are bad enough, you should SEE what they’ve got under the Common Agricultural Policy. Hell, about 15% (I think) of the Prince of Wales’ income is from that.

      And fisheries? oh, my…..

      Before he’s done Trump will have these people talking about a barter system and they won’t even realize it.


    4. 4 | June 10, 2018 8:43 am

      @ eaglesoars:
      And that’s true too. I’m not sure how I feel about some subsidies or some way of helping out family farms (my dad’s side of the family farmed, but not for a long time), but I sure don’t support subsidies to corporate farms & seed companies (Monsanto).

      Several high-profile aides, including John F. Kelly, the president’s chief of staff, and Joe Hagin, a deputy of Mr. Kelly’s, are said to be thinking about how much longer they can stay. Last week, Mr. Kelly told visiting senators that the White House was “a miserable place to work,” according to a person with direct knowledge of the comment.

      I’ve been hearing about Kelly’s imminent departure and dissatisfaction for a year

      I’ve found when I delivered pizza that hardcore socialists, both advocates and beneficiaries, never tip. One of them actually laughed in my face when I told where he could write in a tip on a credit card slip. Another actually took his time to count out the exact amount of the transaction, and not one penny more, while I was standing outside the door in cold pouring rain.

      I’m too ill informed to comment, but I did find this at smalldeadanimals:

      “Any independent country tries to deal from strength. Repeated Canadian administrations have failed to establish a diversified economy. Quite simply a $1 of Canadian GDP does not equal a $1 of USA GDP. Canada is a price taker in a huge % of the economy. Americans are valued added producers. Harper, to his credit, was doing more to diversify the Canadian economy than had been seen in many decades. Harper was a threat to the status quo, particularly the USA, Russia and OPEC. I am convinced foreign money was put to work to ensure his defeat.

      Investment in a diversified economy takes money and time for which Canadian governments have not seriously attempted. The concept of delayed consumption for future benefit does not fly for ‘progressive’ governments who not only deficit finance but encourage their citizens to do the same. Turdeau’s closing G7 comments were self serving and incredibly naive.”

      We do not have an appropriate allocation to military forces. Paladin Phil can speak to that. Progressives are not serious people wrt to our outsized national/provincial/city debts. Yet we give Syrian migrants $3,000 per month (at least) for the first 2 years along with free education & medical services. THE WHOLE COUNTRY apparently cannot do arithmetic. However, we are about to legalize weed. Turdeau is a nasty greedy barely average IQ child. I blame the voters.

      eight? EIGHT???

      This is a good piece on California’s water issues. (I read elsewhere this morning that they lose 30% just to leakage.)

      —-
      And through this crisis, California has spent enormous resources to protect the delta smelt, a 3-inch fish that appears to be going extinct despite enormously wasteful environmental projects.

      “To protect smelt from water pumps, government regulators have flushed 1.4 trillion gallons of water into the San Francisco Bay since 2008,” according to a 2015 report in The Wall Street Journal. “That would have been enough to sustain 6.4 million Californians for six years. Yet a survey of young adult smelt in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta last fall yielded just eight fish, the lowest level since 1967.”

      Armstrong’s observation of the day:

      I live on the beach and am in awe of the sunsets every day. This is a photo I took on one stunning day. Observing the universe and how everything functions in a choreographed play is amazing. I have often said that my physics teacher said nothing is random. God does not play dice with the universe. My economics professor emphasized that everything was random and therefore the government was needed to manipulate the chaos to smooth everything out so we have a better life. I realized right then and there that one of my professors was lying. I followed the path of order; not the one of chaos and randomness. I am always amazed at how precise things really are.

      Global tyrants seen through the eyes of a woman fighting for property rights in Northern California. She sees the larger agenda that is really behind the ‘sustainability’ movement eroding every human freedom on Earth. People are lead to conflate pollution and climate change. The latter is a tax grab as well as an attempt to depopulate the planet. Water is essential for survival.

      Unnamed but my guess…Kellyanne Conway

      The best distillation of the Trump Doctrine I heard, though, came from a senior White House official with direct access to the president and his thinking. I was talking to this person several weeks ago, and I said, by way of introduction, that I thought it might perhaps be too early to discern a definitive Trump Doctrine.

      “No,” the official said. “There’s definitely a Trump Doctrine.”

      “What is it?” I asked. Here is the answer I received:

      “The Trump Doctrine is ‘We’re America, Bitch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine.

So the poor schlubs are reduced to spending their weekends on the floors of their offices piecing them all back together with tape or something. uh huh.

      I watched that 3 times. Meantime, would yinz have imagined Trump & Kim?

      “In a meeting that seemed unthinkable just months ago, the leaders met at a Singapore island resort, shaking hands warmly in front of a row of alternating U.S. and North Korean flags. They then moved into a roughly 45-minute one-on-one meeting, joined only by their interpreters, before including their advisers.

      For all the upbeat talk, it remained to be seen what, if any, concrete results the sit-down would produce.

      “We are going to have a great discussion and I think tremendous success. We will be tremendously successful,” Trump said before their private session.

      Kim said through an interpreter: “It wasn’t easy for us to come here. There was a past that grabbed our ankles and wrong prejudices and practices that at times covered our eyes and ears. We overcame all that and we are here now.”

      Kim was educated most of his life in Switzerland. It’s not as tho he just landed on another planet. Somebody or something has convinced him it’s a different world and I don’t think it was China.

      Bike challenge update: I’m over half way to my goal of 75 miles by the end of the month. And thanks to a very generous marsupial, I’m at my fund raising goal.

      Tomorrow (Wednesday) any donations up to a total of $500,00 will be matched.

      In total, nearly $3.9 million has been raised this year, and over 1.3 million miles ridden by over 51,000 cyclists.

      We can laugh at TDS, but it’s real and has sadly cost a great many relationships.

      I find that among the Republican NeverTrumps, there’s an underlying fallacy that upon a great majority of them hang their incredible hatred of Trump voters.

      It’s the fallacy that one or more other GOP candidates could have defeated Clinton in the 2016 general.

      For me, Trump has been a pleasant surprise – even as an early supporter. I was an early supporter because it was very clear to me that he was the only candidate that had a prayer.

      Federal Judge Approves AT&T Time Warner Merger

      AT&T scored a major triumph in its scheme to become a telecom-media behemoth Tuesday when a federal judge gave the green light to its $85.4 billion takeover of Time Warner.
      The decision by Judge Richard Leon is a setback for Makan Delrahim, President Trump appointee to the top spot in the Justice Department’s antitrust division, challenging his view of antitrust laws in the digital era. Most analysts believe that the decision is likely to set off a wave of takeovers and consolidation in tech, telecom, and media.

      The merger was approved without any conditions, a stunning rebuke of the government’s case. Judge Leon even went so far as to urge the government not to seek a stay of his decision pending a possible appeal.

      “The case stands as a testament to the wisdom of the combination of these two great companies,” Daniel Petrocelli, the lead trial attorney for AT&T, said after the judge’s ruling. “This decision was a sound and proper rejection of all of the government’s arguments to stop this merger.”

      AVENATTI: THE RUSSIANS ARE AFTER ME!

      Michael Avenatti told The Daily Beast Tuesday that he believes the Russian government is trying to plant damaging stories about him in the press, without any evidence to support this claim.

      Avenatti, the media-friendly attorney representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, claims two members of the media and a “high ranking American intelligence official” informed him of the Russian plot.

      “They’re doing it because they see me as a threat, a considerable threat,” he told The Daily Beast. “If we weren’t a threat, none of this would be happening.”

      Avenatti also told The Daily Beast that members of the Russian government are trying to spread a story that he once traveled to Moscow and had sexual relationships with several women during his trip.

      A bit lite on the documentation, but I believe he has it correct.

      https://truepundit.com/feds-drop-bombshell-comey-illegal-scheme-involved-entire-u-s-intel-community/

      Intelligence garnered from the British eavesdropping, which again was merely a front for the NSA, was then used in August 2016 to secure a legitimate FISA warrant on Manafort, Trump Jr. and Kushner. That warrant was issued on or about September, 2016, federal sources confirm.

      It was the third time the cabal of U.S. intelligence agencies sought a FISA warrant for the Trump associates and this time it was approved.

      FBI sources said finally obtaining the FISA warrant was important because it provided the agencies cover for previous illegal wiretapping which they believed would never be discovered.

      Here is what we now know, per intelligence gleaned form federal law enforcement sources with insider knowledge of what amounts to a plot by U.S. intelligence agencies to secure back door and illegal wiretaps of President Trump’s associates:

      Six U.S. agencies created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA’s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.
      To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.
      The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.
      GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA’s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.
      The illegal wiretaps were initiated months before the controversial Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
      The Justice Department and FBI helped set up the meeting at Trump Tower between Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner with controversial Russian officials to make Trump’s associates appear compromised.
      Following the Trump Tower sit down, GCHQ began digitally wiretapping Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner.
      After the concocted meeting by the Deep State, the British spy agency could officially justify wiretapping Trump associates as an intelligence front for NSA because the Russian lawyer at the meeting Veselnitskaya was considered an international security risk and prior to the June sit down was not even allowed entry into the United States or the UK, federal sources said.
      By using GCHQ, the NSA and its intelligence partners had carved out a loophole to wiretap Trump without a warrant. While it is illegal for U.S. agencies to monitor phones and emails of U.S. citizens inside the United States absent a warrant, it is not illegal for British intelligence to do so. Even if the GCHQ was tapping Trump on U.S. soil at Fort Meade.
      The wiretaps, secured through illicit scheming, have been used by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election, even though the evidence is considered “poisoned fruit.”

      Manafort was wiretapped. Cater Page was wiretapped. Trump Jr. was wiretapped. Kushner was wiretapped. Gen. Michael Flynn was wiretapped. And likely there were others.

      And none of it was very legal.

      In fact, most of it was very illegal, according to federal law enforcement sources who are blowing the whistle on a sweeping scheme to undermine the Executive branch and the electorate’s choice for president of the United States.

      Perhaps this all helps explain the nervous Tweets and public tantrums from the compromised former leaders of the U.S. intelligence agencies.
