Here is perhaps the most important economic story of the year. President Trump appears to be on his way to a major victory in his trade war with China. Fox News reported:
China signaled on Monday it was now seeking a rapid and “calm” end to its ongoing trade war with the U.S., as Asian markets crumbled and China’s currency plummeted to an 11-year low following the latest tariffs on $550 billion in Chinese goods announced last Friday by the Trump administration.
News of the possible opening in negotiations came shortly after President Trump threatened to declare a national emergency that would result in American businesses freezing their relationships with China. Trump’s tariff barrage on Friday came after hours China imposed its own retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. goods.
At the Group of Seven summit in France on Sunday, White House officials rejected suggestions the president was wavering and insisted that his only regret was not implementing even more initial tariffs on China.
… In response, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He told a state-controlled newspaper that “China is willing to resolve its trade dispute with the United States through calm negotiations and resolutely opposes the escalation of the conflict,” Reuters reported.
Speaking at a technology conference in China, Liu added: “We believe that the escalation of the trade war is not beneficial for China, the United States, nor to the interests of the people of the world.”
Friends, this is a major victory if China follows through and makes concessions as Trump has demanded. For a year now the hand-wringers have been pleading with the president to give in to China and not pursue the trade war. They essentially wanted Trump to allow China to continue to “rip off” the US in trade.
President Trump would have none of it and has apparently won the ‘trade war’.
This is part of the New World Order that Trump is ushering in – not a globalist and statist order, but a populist and dynamic order that puts the working people of the world ahead of the elites. And that puts US interests ahead of our competitors and adversaries.
This is precisely why the elites fear president Trump – because he is forcing the restructuring of the global economy through American economic strength. Trump knows that China is weak and vulnerable and he exploited that.
Go Trump! And this is going to have an effect on North Korea’s negotiations with the US to get rid of its nukes. North Korea follows China’s lead. After North Korea sees China making concessions on trade, it probably will do so too on its armaments.
Trump Would Trounce ‘Pocahontas’ in 2020
Nikitas3.com has said many times that president Trump is heading for re-election in 2020, perhaps in a landslide. The Democrat candidates are weak and extreme. Trump, on the other hand, is a proven and known leader who is in command.
Even the much-hyped Beto O’Rourke of Texas has faded. He just keeps going further and further to the left and making outrageous statements to get media attention as his poll numbers sink like a stone. He may not even make the cut for the next series of debates.
Other Democrats like Kirstin Gillibrand and Steve Bullock will soon be gone. They have embarrassed themselves plenty.
The Democrat candidates who look like they will be the Final Three are Bernie Sanders, ‘Pocahontas’ Warren and Joe Biden.
What a disaster. Nikitas3.com predicts that president Trump will shred any one of them. They each have their own special weaknesses that make them unelectable. And Trump is not being shy about calling them out as “socialists or communists” as he did recently in New Hampshire. No other Republican is brave enough to do that.
First, Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren. She may very well be the nominee since Biden is tanking (see below). This female has 10 tons of baggage going into 2020 starting with her fake claim that she was Native American in order to get jobs in academia under affirmative action. This alone is one of the most appalling personal histories ever about a US presidential candidate.
If ‘Pocahontas’ is the nominee president Trump is going to mince her mercilessly. He already is saying, and will continue to say, that she is a fraud who cannot be trusted to run the country.
That will be very effective. And that is just the beginning. ‘Pocahontas’ is making every radical proposal imaginable – free college, expunge student debt, ban guns, open borders, sky-high taxes, ‘green’ energy, ban oil and gas pipelines, give free health care to illegal aliens – the entire socialist/communist agenda.
You can tell that she spent too much time at Harvard. And now she has a new problem concerning the police which president Trump would certainly use against her.
She recently claimed that 18-year-old Michael Brown was “murdered” by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014 in a case that gained national attention. And while Brown was shot and killed by a police officer, Warren ignored the the findings of the Department of Justice which found that the shooting was self-defense by the police officer after Brown attacked him. Still Warren tweeted:
5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.
Warren is never going to be able to hide this tweet and you can be sure that president Trump is going to hammer her on it if she is the nominee.
In 2018 Warren also criticized ICE immigration agents saying that they should be replaced with “something that reflects our morality”. She added, “This is about children held in cages. This is about babies scattered all across this country.”
Several days later, a Massachusetts man offered to pay $500 to anyone who would kill an ICE agent.
This is the type of dangerous and extreme rhetoric that will ruin Warren’s candidacy, but Democrat primary voters don’t know it yet. Democrats may have to learn a hard lesson in 2020 like they did in 1972 when they nominated far-left George McGovern for president after repeated warnings not to. Incumbent Republican president Richard Nixon went on to win 49 states.
Nikitas3.com predicts that Trump would soundly defeat Warren. She is a huge target for the president’s biting satire and his Twitter finger.
Meanwhile six Philadelphia police officers were shot in the line of duty during a recent standoff. Those police were taunted by black bystanders who laughed and yelled at them during the gunfire. This comes after decades of anti-police rhetoric from Democrats.
And indeed Warren fanned the anti-cop flames in 2018 when she said:
“Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system. It’s racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back.”
That refers to the whole system from cops in the streets all the way up to courtrooms and prisons. And a clear majority of Americans does not agree with Warren.
Since January, the Officer Down Memorial Page notes that 73 law enforcement officers have died or been killed in the line of duty. Last year, more than 160 law enforcement officers died or were killed across the country.
President Trump would be certain to highlight Warren’s anti-cop, anti-law-enforcement messages and defeat her handily. He will say three words that will win the day for him: “Pocahontas hates cops…” Period. End of story. Trump gets re-elected.
Meanwhile Democrat front-runner Joe Biden is sinking even further with a string of gaffes. For instance Biden recently told reporters that “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”
This is disturbingly wrong. The Parkland high school killings happened on February 14, 2018, more than one year after Biden left office.
He recently said, “What am I doing?” after a speech in which he slurred his words and spoke in disconnected thoughts.
Biden also said that “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” This was a major racial slip-up. And more are coming, rest assured.
A video from the Iowa state fair shows a female college student asking Biden how many genders there are and Biden says “Three” and then when she asks “What are they?” Biden grabs her arm and says, “Don’t play games with me, kid…”
Biden said during one speech that Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King were assassinated “in the 70s… in the late 70s”.
Wrong. Both were killed in 1968.
It gets worse. While campaigning in crucial New Hampshire, whose famous first-in-the-nation primary is just months away, Biden said, “I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?”
Huh?! In short Biden is screwing up big time, as expected. Nikitas3.com has said from the start that he is a weak candidate whom president Trump would shred for his constant gaffes.
President Trump said mockingly: “Joe Biden is not playing with a full deck. This is not somebody you can have as your president. But, if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled.” Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden’s allies are pushing for a return to the “rose garden” strategy less than two months after the former vice president abandoned the notion and began campaigning actively.
Biden, who has retreated from the public eye after a hellish week of gaffes consumed his campaign, is being pushed to retool his schedule to limit public appearances and thereby cut down on the opportunities for verbal missteps.
This is great news for president Trump. On the same day that Biden drew a crowd of 30 in New Hampshire Trump held a rally for 11,500 wildly cheering supporters nearby with thousands more outside who could not get in.
Meanwhile the New York Times reported that Obama even tried to quietly talk Biden out of running for fear of Biden’s propensity to screw up.
Look at this quote from Biden’s own wife Jill. If this isn’t a lukewarm endorsement of her own husband it is hard to know what is:
“[Y]our candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I sorta personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”
This all comes on top of something that president Trump already has addressed – Biden’s son, and thus Biden himself indirectly, appears to be a tool of China. Hunter Biden’s hedge fund received $1.5 billion in Chinese investment which is really a payoff from China should Joe Biden be elected president.
Candidate Bernie Sanders of Vermont is a true old-style communist militant. He even took his 1988 honeymoon in the communist Soviet Union.
Here is Sanders talking about nationalizing the energy industry with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes:
HAYES: There’s — I want to talk about one part of the plan that I find fascinating which is about how power is generated and distributed. You talk about there’s public — there’s some federal public administration of power in this country based on the Tennessee Valley Authority and others, and basically, you propose essentially a federal takeover of the whole thing that essentially a Tennessee Valley Authority extension for the whole country, right? Am I — am I understanding that correctly?
SANDERS: Yes, that’s — you’re in the ballpark. That’s right. Look, the TVA has done a lot of good work. It produces electricity from hydropower and other sources. What we need to do is have an aggressive federal government saying that we are going to produce a massive amount of electricity from solar and from wind and from other sustainable energies and we will sell it out. And by the way, we’re going to make money doing that.
Sanders also tweeted:
Fossil fuel executives should be criminally prosecuted for the destruction they have knowingly caused. #GreenNewDeal
Woah! So after this tweet he has no chance whatsoever of being elected president after having no chance whatsoever before this tweet.
Naturally Sanders is ignoring the dreadful economy in his own state after Vermont slavishly following Sanders-type policies for the last 50 years.
Meanwhile Sanders doesn’t understand the US Constitution. He said that Americans have “rights” that aren’t mentioned in the Constitution.
Sanders said that Americans are “entitled” to “a decent job that pays a living wage, the right to quality health care, the right to a complete education, the right to affordable housing, the right to a clean environment, the right to a secure retirement.”
This is typical of how the socialist left perverts the Constitution; they say that the government must provide for the citizens.
That is false. If the government is charged with providing for the people then that government becomes tyrannical since it has the power to pick which people will get what.
Notice that every poor person in the world wants to come to America. Why? If our Constitution is so bad then why do they all want to come here?
It is because the Constitution gives us freedom FROM government and has thus made American the most successful, free and optimistic nation in the world. Everyone wants to be in on the party.
The Constitution is a unique document. It gives us maximum freedom by saying what the government CANNOT do, as the first 10 Amendments – the Bill of Rights – say in limiting the power of government.
Can MSNBC Find Russia on a Map?
An MSNBC reporter named Tiffany Cross said she doubted that any attendees at a Trump rally could find Greenland on a map as she was discussing president Trump’s proposal that the US might purchase Greenland from Denmark.
Cross said, “…can anybody at the MAGA rally point out Greenland on a map? I would be very interested and curious to see. Or tell us what kind of government Greenland is or who the indigenous people are. I highly doubt it.”
So Nikitas3.com has this question for Cross: “Can anyone at MSNBC find Russia on a map? Can anyone at MSNBC find evidence of Trump colluding with Russia? After all MSNBC claimed that he colluded for more than two years yet that was proven false by the Mueller investigation.”
By the way the United States has considered purchasing Greenland in the past. It is not a new idea.
Al Gore Lies Again
Al Gore is back on TV fabricating more nonsense about the end of the world in “climate change”. And why not. He has earned a fortune of $300 million as head cheerleader of the ‘global warming’ alarmist army. Jonathan Karl asked Gore on ABC:
“You said back in 2006 that the world would reach the point of no return if drastic measures weren’t taken to reduce greenhouse gases by 2016. Is it already too late?”
That is called a ‘leading question’ and it typical of the kid-glove treatment that ‘greenies’ get in the Fake News media. Gore replied…
“Well, some changes, unfortunately, have already been locked in place. Sea level increases are going to continue no matter what we do now. But, we can prevent much larger sea level increases — much more rapid increases in temperatures. The heat wave was in Europe. Now, it’s in the Arctic, and we’re seeing huge melting of the ice there.”
First of all, Gore warned in 2006 that sea levels were going to rise 17 feet. Then in 2010 he bought a $9 million house right on the beach in Los Angeles. So he obviously is not too worried about these rises in the sea level.
Second, Gore says that “Sea level increases are going to continue no matter what we do now”. Yet there are no sea level increases happening right now. Gore confimed that by buying his $9 million house. And we all know it because none of these coastal cities is underwater yet like they would be if the seas were rising 17 feet.
Gore then points out that “The heat wave was in Europe.” He is referencing a brief period of high heat in Europe this Summer. Yet Gore conveniently ignores the coldest Winter in 100 years in the Northern US in 2018. And that was not just a few days; that was an entire Winter of record cold temperatures.
These environmentalists are very selective in what they tell us. And their data is all manipulated anyway. They claim ‘global warming’ by measuring surface temperatures via satellites hundreds of miles above the earth and then running the data through computer programs. In short they control the whole process so they can make it say whatever they please. They can change everything with a single click of a mouse.
It gets worse. In 2009 and again in 2011 the “Climate-gate” e-mail scandal showed top ‘warming’ alarmists expressing concern to each other that their end-of-the-world numbers were not adding up.
The Fake News media declined to report a single word about “Climate-gate” just as they will never report about Al Gore’s $9 million house. Or Obama’s $15 house that he is purchasing right on the oceanfront on Martha’s Vineyard.
