The Long Overdue Trade War is On 

It’s been like the belief that the world was flat.  No one was even willing to challenge the mantra.  “China is in its ascendency,” the Davos gang and One Worlders told us. “The West is in decline—nothing we can do about it.”

But somehow that memo never reached Donald J. Trump.

In fact, Trump reacted to China as President Ronald Reagan did to that same ‘accepted wisdom’ regarding The Soviet Union—which he was told, “was in its ascendancy and could not be challenged.” “Nonsense,” he said. 

“Tell me about their economy.” Reagan trusted his own instincts about how to handle what was then America’s greatest threat better than the ‘experts’.

“Russia’s economy is about the size of California’s, Sir,” was the response given—which was 50% off.  Their entire GDP was actually half of just one State—the same one President Reagan ran as governor— so he called their bluff—and brought the U.S.S.R. to its knees. They had spent their foreign reserves on an unsustainable military build up while their state-run economy lost revenue. Reagan’s Star Wars initiative—a bluff—took them to the mat.

The same so-called ‘experts’—Richard Haass and Henry Kissinger—who had pressed Presidents Nixon and Reagan to bend to the Soviets also pressed for America to bend to China and bring them into the WTO with most-favoured nation status. They promised the world that by doing so China would turn toward Western ways, democratise, adopt the rule of law, and become a fair trading partner.

Wrong.  4,000 year-old China simply put the Western World under ‘Barbarian management’ as it had always done with its enemies before, and transferred the world’s supply chain to its own shores using U.S. trade deficits to finance it. This was done with great enthusiasm and assistance from the One Worlders and Davos/Wall Street whores who profited so enormously from selling out their own nations and people—as they are still doing today.

       In all their 4,000-year history, China has never been Trumped

So, why is this ‘war’ so important now?

From 1946 to 2000—the year the One Worlders brought China into The World Trade Organisation—the United States had averaged an annual 3.5% rate of growth for all of those postwar years. 

Then China was intentionally allowed to hollow out Western manufacturing by these questionable Davos policies, which caused that growth rate to fall and average only 1.9%—less than half—ever since. The manufacturing base for final assembly—and the Western world’s supply chain—rapidly relocated to China. Factories closed by the thousands and millions of displaced workers fell into hopelessness, despair, poverty, and ultimately, addiction. There was an unparalleled opioid crisis when President Donald Trump took office, which is only now subsiding as hope and jobs return to America.

As recently as 2015, President Barack Hussein Obama claimed this process caused by his One World comrades to be “irreversible.” He said at a town hall meeting in Elkhart, Indiana during Trump’s 2016 campaign, that those jobs “are just not coming back,” and joked of then candidate Trump’s claims to the contrary saying, “What’s he got? Some kind of Magic Wand?”

Like most of Donald J. Trump’s critics, Obama underestimated him. By returning to sensible economic policies and ending the Left’s anti-business— and therefore, anti-worker—climate for industry, manufacturing did not just return, it raced home.  Trump did three simple things to cause this:

  1. He cut the corporate tax rate of 35% (one of the highest in the world) to just 21%, one of the lowest.
  2. He ordered the federal government to cut at least two regulations for every one it added—an order exceeded by his staff—which cut regs 22:1 instead. The Leftists regulatory over-burdening was gone.
  3. The President then courted, extolled, threatened and cajoled large companies to ‘come home’ and bring their capital and factories with them.

And they did—in droves. 

Those manufacturing jobs Obama said would never come home, have in fact returned—well over 600,000 of them—and according to Forbes Magazine, manufacturing jobs increased by 399% in Trump’s first 26 months, over Obama’s last 26 months. Overall employment is highest ever at 163 million.

But to keep those jobs, China’s illegal and unfair trade practices that steal U.S. intellectual property (and force U.S. companies to transfer technology and Intellectual Property to them) while holding U.S. investments hostage must end—and it must end now while China’s trajectory is reversible.

So, what’s next in this war?

The stakes are high, and against all advice, President Trump fired the first volley. He put heavy tariffs on the Chinese to press them on these issues.  In the long-game China plays so well, they first agreed to make a deal, then reneged—a strategy that has been allowed for the past three U.S. Administrations without penalty.

Wrong guy this time.  Trump doubled down—added new tariffs—and they’re only going up and up until four things happen:

  1. Forced technology transfers (and outright IP theft from U.S. companies by China) ceases
  2. Non-reciprocal tariffs and barriers on U.S. goods are removed
  3. U.S. has ability to liquidate companies (like ZTE) to cut China off from U.S. supply chains in sensitive areas
  4. Reforms are in place to limit Chinese investment (and therefore, technology transfers) in critical industries by revamping CIFIUS- (Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.) that was used as a gravy train under the Obama Administration by both his Secretaries of State, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry to sell sensitive assets and make deals abroad for personal or family gain.  That game is over under President Trump.

While the world thinks of China as having unlimited funds—like the world believed of the Soviets in Reagan’s day—Trump has done his homework too.

There are huge cities built to add assets to the books that have no purpose.  Like the Potemkin villages built along the rivers of Europe—nothing but walls to fool the enemy in days of old—the Chinese have built entire uninhabited cities to create a false facade of extraordinary growth that—while impressive—is not productive.  It’s a fraud, in fact, to give an appearance.

China’s wealth is $45 Trillion less than the US. Is it trying to make up this difference through fraud?  Has it, perhaps, already done so?

So, let’s talk money – and war

The U.S. banking system is estimated to have $19 Trillion in assets—and as we saw back in 2008—not all of them are good. So how good are China’s?

China claims its banking system with a far smaller economy, has $49 Trillion in assets—more than twice as much as the U.S., which does not compute.  Further, roughly $45 Trillion of those ‘assets’ have been ‘added’ just since 2008.  How? Or should we say, ‘Really’?

It was very telling on President Trump’s first trip to China two years ago that President Xi’s government expressed zero interest in an increased U.S. presence or investment in its industrial sector, while strongly encouraging U.S. financial firms to come in to China and invest and partner with its banks— sinking money into a growing, deepening hole.

China’s economy is in the crapper—which means it’s time for war

And it doesn’t have to be a shooting war, though a little of that may happen as Xi tests the world’s resolve by continuing to illegally build military islands.

These stationary ‘battleships’ will allow China to expropriate the South China Sea if it hasn’t already. These man-made island fortresses—Fiery Cross Reef, Mischief Reef, Spratly Island, Woody Island, Subi Reef—with 10,000-foot runways, barracks, and fighter jets—will lead to Chinese hegemony in Asia, as is Beijing’s goal.

July 12, 2016, “International Court rules China’s island building illegal,” so why has it continued?  This is just one of five ‘battleship’ islands.

The South China Sea has been called the superhighway of commerce. Estimates vary but between $3.37-5.3 Trillion dollars in commerce pass through this body of international water each year, carrying more than 30% of all global maritime trade in crude oil.  

Allowing China to ring fence this passage with military ‘battleship’ islands renders all others in the region little more than vassal states, and the world’s commerce a potential hostage to China’s seemingly unlimited ambitions.

The Western World and its Pacific allies (Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea, Australia, The Philippines and New Zealand) must stand together.

Whether you like President Trump or not, he has rather heroically—and single-handedly—set  up geo-strategic alliances with chosen nations.

The goal is to compete with China by recreating a Western alliance supply chain that is not reliant on or subject to the whims of what President Trump’s advisor, Steve Bannon, once called China’s ‘mercantilist totalitarianism’.

One-by-one, as these nations make one-on-one deals with America, that geo-political reality is coming true.

Just this week at the G-7, as example, Japan agreed to line up with the President’s Western supply chain alliance, as did the UK’s new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.  South Korea’s agreement is already in process. 

One by bloody one—we must come together, and jointly call on China to end this militarisation of the South China Sea—or put them on notice that the assets on those illegal islands will be removed without their permission if they don’t.

By creating an alternate supply and manufacturing chain outside their borders, the debate becomes a real one. 

The Western Alliance will have chips on the table and become immune to economic pressures. One financial quarter of boycott on Chinese goods will bring Beijing to its knees.

To save ‘face’, it could be proposed that a joint international force occupy these stationary battleship islands to protect this important waterway.

If that ruse does not work, then it is time for joint pressure and ultimately action.

While China is in a major economic downturn and seriously overextended financially with growing domestic unrest is the perfect time to make a deal.

And that is an Art the President of the United States knows quite well. You could, in fact, say he ‘wrote the book’ on that subject.

Let me break this down for y’all.

Lesbians can be non-binary.

Gay men can be lesbians.

Non-binary gay men can be straight lesbians.

Straight lesbians can be non-binary bisexuals who are attracted to cisgender non-binary lesbian men.

This really isn’t difficult.

White House Issues Scathing Statement on Comey, Says He is a ‘Proven Liar and Leaker’

“The Inspector General’s report shows Comey violated the most basic obligations of confidentiality that he owed to the United States Government and to the American people, “in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.” Because Comey shamefully leaked information to the press—in blatant violation of FBI policies—the Nation was forced to endure the baseless politically motivated, two-year witch hunt. Comey disgraced himself and his office to further a personal political agenda, and this report further confirms that fact,”

At 76 years of age Joe Creepy Sniffy Biden needs to call it a day and stay away from politics and most importantly children.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to forget the name of Barack Obama during a campaign stop, despite the fact that he talks about him constantly.

This gaffe was the latest in a long string of flubs that have helped contribute to the 76-year-old candidate dropping to third place in recent polls — behind Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
