Leverage Maneuver – Trump Talks Openly With Taiwan’s President…

Ok, this one strategic maneuver has just pegged my too-much-winning needle on max overdrive. Donald Trump took a congratulatory phone call from the President of Taiwan, and now the Chinese will be apoplectic.

Those of you who have been with us for a while, will note our arguments against China’s MFN (Most Favored Nation) trade status have continually fallen on deaf ears within DC.  Why?  Because they are political ears paid to remain necessarily deaf, while various Chinese national interests have taken influence over our legislative priorities on trade and commerce.

In short, we’ve been ripped off.  Bigly.  For decades.

Rule #1 in any trade deal is to fully understand who is the customer within the equation.  The U.S. market is the biggest trade customer on this entire beautiful blue planet.  We hold all the leverage.  Access, or denial of access, to this market is the leverageContinue reading

Brilliant – Howard Dean Drops Out of DNC Race Paving Way for Keith Ellison…

Oh, the good news just keeps on coming. We are one step closer to actually seeing Keith Ellison as the Chairman of the DNC. We should do everything possible to ensure his success in this quest.

Washington (Via CNN) – Howard Dean has dropped his bid for a second stint chairing the Democratic National Committee, citing “other priorities” and a “possibly divisive” race.

“I’m not going to be a candidate for the DNC chairmanship,” the former Vermont governor and 2004 presidential candidate said at the start of an Association of State Democratic Chairs forum in Denver. “I think it could possibly be divisive. I have other priorities. I have a grandchild now. But I am fully dedicated to using as much time as I can to support whoever the chairman is.”

A leading contender for the spot is Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota (read more)

CNN Apologizes For Joke that President-elect Trump’s Plane Should Crash…

It appears that yet again CNN can’t help showcasing themselves as rabid violent left-wing ideologues.  During a hot-mic segment on the afternoon show with Brooke Baldwin a CNN producer was setting up a live remote broadcast with correspondent Suzanne Malveaux.

During the set-up, the producer was heard discussing various hand signals with Malveaux: “That means his plane’s crashed — just kidding,” the producer said, prompting a giggle and stunned face from Malveaux. (Video 01:28):

“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday. We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”  (link)

Judge Newman Turns Slager Trial into Kangaroo Court – Verdict Now Irrelevant…

The afternoon story began with the announcement the jury in the Officer Michael Slager trial was hopelessly deadlocked.   Previously the State of South Carolina presented two options for verdict consideration, Murder or Voluntary Manslaughter.

Walter Scott - judge clifton newmanThe voluntary manslaughter option (lesser charges) was added AFTER the trial phase was concluded and the defense presented, then rested, its case.

The reason for the lesser charge was transparent to all who knew and followed the case closely, there was virtually no-way for a jury to convict on just the original charge of murder, hence the lesser included.

Adding the lesser charge option after trial testimony was yet again more evidence of a manipulative prosecution.

In essence, the State –with the full support of activist Judge Newman– timed the lesser charge inclusion to ensure the defense never used elements within their legal presentation that would have defended specifically against the manslaughter charge.

However, that said, what happened on Friday was even more insufferable.  After the jury announcing they were deadlocked, Judge Newman began by giving them an appropriate “Allen Charge” – essentially telling the jury to try again. Continue reading

Full Audio of Harvard Confrontation – Clinton Campaign -vs- Trump Campaign…

To fully understand the level of angst still permeating the failed Hillary Clinton campaign team, it is wise to remember they were so entirely overconfident they actually rented out the entire Javitz center on election night.

That’s 840,000 square feet of celebratory venue on four levels stretching across six city blocks in New York City.

clinton-javitzTeam Clinton had convinced themselves the election outcome was merely a formality.  Everyone in their concentric circles, including the media, was totally and completely convinced that Hillary Clinton was going to win.  The loss was seismic, tectonic, and beyond jaw-dropping for their echo-chamber.  It caught them entirely unprepared.

That’s the essential backdrop for a level of psychological and emotional denial the Clinton team just cannot bring themselves to overcome.  Last night the severity of their collective grief was on full display during a panel discussion at Harvard University.

It’s somewhat of an election ritual where every four years at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government (CNN’s David Gergen President), opposing teams from the presidential campaigns answer questions together from the media and from each other.

However, this year, Clinton’s advisory team attacked Trump’s campaign team with racism charges, saying “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.” But the Trump team didn’t take it laying down, and Kellyanne Conway fired right back.

Here’s the explosive confrontation:
