President Trump was mocked by the Fake News media during his 2016 campaign for telling his supporters that he was going to win so many political victories that “you’re going to get tired of winning!”
Well, he was correct. This president just keeps racking up victory after victory after victory from the economy to the travel ban to energy independence to judicial appointees. Even the ‘unmanageable’ border crisis has been slowly coming under control.
And now China trade. American negotiators have made an initial deal on a trade pact with China. The phase-one deal includes promises by Beijing to purchase $50 billion of US agricultural goods, stronger intellectual-property protections and an end to currency manipulation by China to favor Chinese exports.
In response the US has agreed to not put new 15% tariffs on $160 billion of Chinese imports into the US. A second part of the deal is expected later in 2020.
OK, friends, the Fake News media are going to mention this trade success story once – or possibly ignore it – and then drop it since it represents yet another major political win for the president.
Since Trump first imposed tariffs on China, the Fake News media insisted that the resulting trade war would bring down the US economy. But the president knew, and has said for years, that China has been ripping us off and that it must end.
And it is ending; China is giving in just as Trump – and Nikitas3.com – predicted.
Perhaps you remember the media narrative last Summer that we were headed into a recession with the implication that the Trump tariffs on China were largely responsible. And that inevitable stock market losses were coming as a result of “concern” and “worry” over the trade war.
Yet the stock market has been setting records and is going to continue to do so on the news that the US and China have reached this preliminary trade deal.
This all happened only because we have a bold, confident leader presiding over a strong economy that has been empowered directly by his policies.
The Chinese are obviously hoping that the trade deal will boost their economy which grew only 6 percent in the third quarter, its slowest pace since 1993. This slowdown is a direct result of Trump’s tough actions.
The Chinese have asked for president Trump to roll back existing tariffs as part of phase one of the deal, although president Trump is highly unlikely to do so. After all, he knows that he is winning this trade war and obviously is not going to wave the white flag.
China has 15% of the world’s economic production with an estimated annual GDP of $12 trillion, although that number is questionable since it is issued by the communist government. The US is $22 trillion and Europe combined is $18 trillion. Japan is $5 trillion.
Trump in 2020!
Dopey Millennial Conservatives Go ‘Green’
A group called Young Conservatives for Carbon Dividends has called for laws to tax oil, natural gas and coal producers of so-called “greenhouse gases”. Breitbart News reported:
The taxation plan would make fossil fuels more expensive while the resulting revenues would go to taxpayers.
“We claim to be the party that cares about the future that our children will inherit, and we need climate policy that reflects that,” said Kiera O’Brien, 21, a senior at Harvard University who co-founded the group.
“We are offering up what we see as the common sense solution and the way forward for the party,” O’Brien said in the Reuters article.
The article pointed out that Trump has rejected the climate doomsday scenario and has instead acted to help the U.S. energy sector by slashing regulations and withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, both policies aimed at helping American workers and the economy.
The college Republicans behind the carbon tax campaign said the Party should have, ahead of the 2020 election, a climate change plan in place. Their plan includes an initial $40-a-ton tax on carbon dioxide – a greenhouse gas – at mines, wells, and ports where products are produced. That tax rate would increase over time, according to Reuters.
O’Brien said the plan includes a family of four receiving $2,000 a year from the carbon tax revenues to help with higher energy costs.
This shows that even these conservative millennials have come under the fearmongering propaganda spell of Democrats, radical environmentalists, the Sierra Club, etc. Notice that the ‘greenie’ is at Harvard. No surprise there.
This is why the environmentalists constantly repeat their lies; if a lie is repeated over and over long enough, people will believe it.
These dopey “conservatives” should join the Democrat party where they belong. There is no evidence whatsoever that the planet is burning up. In New England we are already having another brutal Winter.
In fact Harvard, which is in New England, is also experiencing this frigid weather and snow. But the conservative ‘greenies’ at Harvard somehow manage to ignore reality in favor of “global warming”, i.e., they have become ‘green’ zombies too.
Even Black KIDS are Violent
The Gateway Pundit reported:
A 14-year-old (white) student in Hamilton County, Florida, was hospitalized after being brutally attacked by multiple (black) classmates on the schoolbus for wearing a Trump hat to school.
The family of the student, who has not been publicly identified, has now hired a lawyer and released a video of the attack.
Earlier in the day, the student also had milk poured over his head.
“I am sitting in the hospital with my 14 year old kid because he was just jumped by 8 black kids on the school bus, I guess that’s what happens when a kid wears a #Trump hat to school. And who’s the violent ones again? Earlier today they poured milk all over his head,” the parent, who uses the Twitter handle “American Diaries,” tweeted.
So there you go. This was in fact a racist attack on a white kid and it shows that many black children are racist and violent, just like their racist and violent parents and political leaders like Obama, Sharpton, Waters and thousands more.
In fact while blacks claim that they are the victims of racism, blacks are the real racists in America. Their crime rates against other races (white, hispanics, Asians, etc.) is dozens of times higher than vice versa.
Meanwhile a 13-year-old suspect has been arrested in the brutal stabbing death of an 18-year-old white female New York City college student.
Nikitas3.com would bet $1,000 that the suspect is black who was acting out the Democrat party War on White People just as black criminals do every day of every week.
Trump Judges Keep Getting Confirmed
President Trump’s judicial legacy continues to grow. He has had 50 judges confirmed to the appellate courts since he took office and more than 180 federal judges confirmed.
He even is swaying the notoriously liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to be more conservative.
Meanwhile Obama nominated a total of 55 circuit judges over eight years and Obama judges were, on average, 10 years older that Trump judges.
Of the 30 active seats on the Ninth Circuit, 10 have now been appointed by president Trump, and 14 have been appointed by Republican presidents. That’s a significant change from recent years when only 6 judges on the Ninth Circuit were chosen by Republicans.
And this, friends, is why the US Senate is so important, since the Senate confirms judges.
While the Fake News media focused on Democrats re-taking majority control of the US House in the November 2018 elections, they ignored the big story that Republicans picked up two US Senate seats in the same elections to have a 53 seat majority. This allows for easy confirmation for Trump judicial nominees.
That compares to a total of 20 US Senate seats lost for their respective parties in the first mid-term elections after Clinton, Bush and Obama were first elected.
Uh-oh! Here Comes ‘Climate Reparations’
Breitbart News reported:
The United States was warned Wednesday by the United Nations it cannot avoid compensating poorer nations hit by climate change, despite Donald Trump honoring his election promise of leaving the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
Delegates and observers at the COP25 negotiations in Madrid told AFP that Washington seeks a change to the U.N. climate convention that could release it from punitive “loss and damage” funding for developing nations which is predicted to run into the billions of dollars.
Under the bedrock U.N. climate treaty, adopted in 1992, rich nations agreed to help developing countries prepare for unavoidable future climate impacts — the twin pillars of “mitigation” and “adaptation”.
Blah, blah, blah… OK, we know the drill. This is just one more way for the globalists to suck wealth out of the advanced nations and redistribute it. Except this time it is under the heading of “climate change”. The only problem in the ‘green’ narrative is that the climate has been changing naturally for thousands of years. But leave it up to the socialists to figure out a way to make their extortion ‘green’.
This is just another globalist-socialist scam. The wealthy nations already have given tens of trillions of dollars in aid to the poor countries. We also have given them every American-developed technology for free including electricity, computers, the internal combustion engine, modern agriculture, modern medicine, cell phones, light bulb, radio, TV and every other imaginable technology under the sun to help them to advance themselves.
And thus if they cannot advance themselves, then it is their problem not ours.
Meanwhile there is no evidence anywhere that “climate change” is doing anything to the environment that has not been happening naturally for millennia.
For instance the ‘greenies’ claim that “sea levels are rising”. And so you wonder: Why did Obama just buy a $15 million oceanfront villa if the seas are rising and are going to swallow it up?
Answer: Because Obama knows that “rising seas” are a lie.
New Cannonball Run Record
Here is a quick non-political story:
Nikitas3.com is a car enthusiast and sends out congratulations to three Americans who set a new Cannonball Run record in late November. CBS News reported:
Three car enthusiasts became the new Cannonball Run record holders last month – with a top speed of 193 mph and an average of 103 mph… Drivers Arne Toman and Doug Tabbutt, and spotter Berkeley Chadwick, made the 2,800-mile journey from New York to Los Angeles in 27 hours and 25 minutes.
As first reported by “Road and Track,” the trio shaved more than an hour off the old record, which was set in 2013. They stopped for a total of 22 minutes.
In the 1981 movie “Cannonball Run,” Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise crossed the country in an ambulance. Toman, Tabbutt and Chadwick, however, rode in a souped-up Mercedes. The car was modified over the course of two years, specifically with setting the record in mind.
Toman said, “We’ve got a couple radar detectors, a CB radio, a police scanner, we used gyro-stabilized binoculars, and something new for this trip that’s never been done is we used a thermal scope on the roof of the car so we’re able to see anything warm on the side of the road waiting out before us,” Toman said.
The drivers were aided by a network of spotters, driving ahead of them and reporting road conditions and police speed traps.
“We knew we had a shot pretty much the whole time, and thankfully nothing bad happened,” Toman said. “There was no altercations with the police or anything to slow us down.”
This is such a great American story that Nikitas3.com had to mention it. Hats off to these guys.
Imagine 193 miles per hour top speed in a 2015 Mercedes passenger car – not a purpose-built race car – on the Interstate. Any flaw in the road, or hitting a piece of debris or even a small animal, could have crashed them.
Their average speed for the trip was 103 miles per hour, which is much faster than most people would ever dare drive in the first place.
