Rolling Plunder – How Scott Walker and Paul Ryan Plan To Sell Out Wisconsin, and the Voters are Oblivious…

Wise Up and Rise Up Wisconsin

♦ Governor Scott Walker likes to display his rebel side (although it’s an illusion intended to solidify Tea-Party bona fides in optics only) by riding around on a Harley Davidson motorcycle.   After all, Harley Davidson is headquartered in Wisconsin.

Well, for now at least.

♦ Wisconsin representative, now Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, also likes to tout his form of fiscal conservatism.  However, as the former Chairman of the budgetary ways and means committee, a federal budget is also an optical illusion (hasn’t been one since ’07).

♦ Representative Paul Ryan and Governor Scott Walker along with RNC Chairman Reince Preibus promote themselves as proud Wisconsin cheese-heads; “conservatives” they say.

Well, given Paul Ryan’s full-throated endorsement and promotion for the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal (TPP), perhaps the Wisconsin working voter would like to see exactly what they have in mind for you.  Remember, each of the aforementioned has also endorsed Senator Ted Cruz – who, not coincidentally, was the co-author of the Trade Promotion Authority bill (TPA) which was the vehicle to insure TPP’s passage.

Rather than go through all of the tentacles, and difficult to understand TPP construct, let’s instead use that wonderful Scott Walker (Harley Davidson motorcycle) example to show Wisconsin voters what’s really going on.

Representative Paul Ryan and Senator Ted Cruz created the legislative vehicle for The Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, or TPP.    The legislative vehicle for TPP is called Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA.

Both Ryan and Cruz were actually quite proud of TPA, until candidate Donald Trump made a campaign issue of the trade deal.   Senator Cruz now claims he doesn’t support TPP.

However, these trade deal constructs did not happen by accident, they were built and designed for a reason.   The wall street connections to TPP brings the presidential election race into the more broad agenda, and that’s where you find a geographical relationship which immediately connects RNC head Reince Preibus.

You see, sometimes you need to step back to see the larger picture.

The RNC/GOPe were bedfellows in 2014 along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its president Tom Donohue.  The U.S. CoC worked earnestly to get the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal constructed.  Donohue being the CEO in charge of the U.S. Business interests, via the Chamber, who were doing the actual trade deal negotiations.

The U.S. Chamber (Donohue) also needed a legislative path.  As a consequence the path needs legislatures as bill sponsors.  That’s where Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz come in to the picture.  Together in early 2015 they penned an Op-Ed which appeared in the Wall Street Journal, and also is available HERE.

How they actually worked in the House and Senate to get the trade vehicle, TPA, through the legislative system is quite remarkable.  FULL DETAILS HERE.

Paul Ryan

When we say “remarkable”, we really mean it.

When it is possible to usurp the will of the people, and simultaneously position yourself as outside of the construct therein, such Machiavellian plausible deniability should at the very least be recognized as brilliant.    TPA was a brutal scheme.  TPP is devastating to the U.S.  But the way Ryan/Cruz guided TPA through the House and Senate was brilliant nonetheless.

And that is where Wisconsinites (Preibus, Ryan, Walker) align with a unity agenda within the deal itself.  A deal constructed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that entirely benefits Wall Street.

Can you see now how the 2014 GOPe roadmap gains increased importance, and how Presidential Candidate Scott Walker became part of the entire 2016 nomination scheme?    Follow the money.  Yes, including the Ricketts money.

scott walker harleyBeyond the terrible legislation is the actual TPP trade deal itself; and beyond the TPP are the consequences to the U.S. manufacturing base and U.S. worker.

For an example of those consequences we turn to the beloved Harley Davidson.

A few years ago Harley Davidson opened a plant in Northern India, yes India.

[ Remember the Wisconsin Sikh Temple shooting – did you see those police at the CNN town hall questioning Donald Trump? ]

Coincidences are funny that way. I digress.

The Street motorcycles being sold in the U.S. will be manufactured in the Milwaukee-based company’s Kansas City facility, Wandell said. The Street bikes for international riders will be made in the company’s Bawal, India, plant that opened in 2011.

Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) currently assembles motorcycles in India and Brazil to avoid tariffs, but the parts are made in America and shipped as a kit to those countries. (link)

Harley Davidson in India?  Many die-hard hog fans were worried that Harley was going to start building their bikes out of country.  Given what happened to the auto industry can you blame them for worrying.   However, that wasn’t immediately what was happening, because Harley Davidson USA knew their bikes lived and died on the reputation of being “American Iron”, despite many of the parts made over seas.

However, India has a 100+% tariff on motorcycle imports.  When combined with other import taxes and duties it all adds up to a staggering 115% cost increase to sell a U.S. manufactured Harley in India.

India also has a population over a billion people.  A very large market!  But selling an expensive bike in a poor country with a 100+% import tariff makes the market virtually untouchable.  Unless…

….“We can make (the price) more attractive in those markets by building over there,” Blankenheim said

To work around the problem, and simultaneously set themselves up for future market opportunities, Harley Davidson built a plant in India.    If the Harley is built in India it can be sold in India for less than half the price of building in the U.S. and importing it.

However, the future opportunities angle stems from India not only building their own Harleys, but also manufacturing most of the Harley’s sold on the international market as well.  Build here and export from the U.S. and you find a big tariff at the destination; but build in India and export from India and the tariffs are avoided upon arrival.

How does this help the U.S. manufacturing of Harley Davidson?  How does this help jobs here in the U.S.?  How does this help the U.S. factory worker?

It doesn’t.

But the corporate side (Wall Street / NYSE “HOG”) books of Harley Davidson look great.

See how that works?

In essence, Harley USA will build Harley’s for the USA (disclaimer: “for now”), and Harely in India will build for most the rest of the world.   They are still in the working-out-the-kinks-process part of the global plan, but it is a plan being executed.

So you might ask if India, with a billion citizen market, charges a 100% tariff on U.S. manufactured product, well, what’s the tariff the USA charges to import a motorcycle here from say, Japan?

Well, that would be 2.4%.

Yes, a measly 2.4%

But, wait, it gets better – that is going away too:

America will remove a tariff levied on Japanese motorcycles with engine displacements of over 700cc under the recently announced Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact (TPP), which includes Australia and covers 40 percent of the global economy.

The 2.4 percent duty will be eliminated five years after the multilateral trade deal takes effect, which should, in theory, reduce the price of motorcycles in the over 700cc space in America, placing the imported fare on the same level playing field as home-grown marques like Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory. Those marques mainly focus on bikes with engine capacities of more than 700cc.

America currently imposes no tariff on imported motorbikes with engines of 700cc or lower (link)

Are you seeing the problem yet?

If the U.S. export of a Harley Davidson incurs an import tariff at the destination (say China 30%, or Vietnam 40%), but the same tariff does not apply when the import arrives from India, what nation do you think will be manufacturing the Harley Davidson motorcycles which appear in China?

TPP trade 2Meanwhile, the U.S. unilaterally disarms in the import tariff battle, and drops all import tariffs on the foreign motorcycles which will directly compete with those very same remaining Harley Davidson motorcycles which ARE made in the U.S.A.

Do you remember the Wisconsin Radio Host Charlie Sykes interview of Donald Trump when Sykes climbed atop his high horse and so “righteously” told Trump that Wisconsin is an Import-Export state, and tariffs hurt their economy? etc. etc. etc.

How does that Sykes gibberish look against this example now?

We are only using Harley Davidson as a representative example based on geography (Wisconsin).  This horrific Trade Deal applies nation wide in all areas of manufacturing, import and export.

Scott Walker will be fine, he’ll probably end up on Wall Street.  Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will be fine, he’ll lock in a multi-million lobbying contract.  Reince Preibus will be fine, he’s already got a rolodex filled with Global Bankers and High Financiers.

It’s the ordinary middle-class Wisconsin cheese-head voter who will be impacted.

Are they foolish enough to be co-dependents to their own financial demise?

I guess we’ll find out….

ryan waste fraud and abuse

Wisconsin Values ?

Reference Notes – If you want to compare trade tariffs, examples as shared, on these motorcycles imports and exports you can go HERE to the duty calculator and select engines > 970cc (the first three duty comparison checks are free – after that the website charges for use).

Next time you are in a grocery store, pick up a package of Nabisco Fig Newtons, look at the small wording next to the ingredients and you will see “made in mexico”.  It’s the same poor trade deals that are creating the same outcomes.

³/Senator  Jeff Sessions discusses TPP HERE and Audio HERE

Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The current enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives; Common Sense Conservatives; more vulgarians.

The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:

In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state’s delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.

States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.

That’s important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015)

GOP-versus-Tea-PartyNow, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to “stymie a movement candidate“? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the “non-movement” candidate, ie “the turtle“.

Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?

In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):

Officially, it’s Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president “shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states” before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)

Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?

These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 – Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

It’s all part of their GOPe Roadmap.

    Just trying to fight back on local Milwaukee news online sites. Calling some stories out for heavy biased reporting and I presented alternate views and supports for this different view on the situations.

    Posted a number of comments yesterday. Checked back today and all my comments have been deleted from all sites when I tried to post an alternate view to their heavy biased reporting.

    These sites do not have many comments so it is easy for a moderator to go in and delete any comments they do not like. Others have made note and commented on their comments being deleted.

    So in Milwaukee, if you are a Trump supporter very likely your comments will be deleted from the local news web sites. All the local main news are all run by and staffed by liberals.

    This really is a fascist war of controlled words and controlled public speech.

    One aspect of this trade deal. If Cruz becomes President and his Global initiative is fruitful, our southern border will be pushed back to southern Mexico. A huge container port will be built on the Mexican Pacific coast. Containers will be sent via a super transport system to Kansas City. Thus, our container ports on the West Coast, East Coast, and Gulf Coast will dry up. How about that for American jobs drying up!

    I just wanted to throw a positive comment out here. Trump’s rise had made me very proud of our country. Four years ago, the nominee, Mittens, basically said that half of the people in our country are lazy deadbeats. That really worried me at the time and I began to wonder how we could survive as a country if it were true.

    With Trump’s rise, it’s obvious that people want jobs, they want to work, they want to provide for their families and contribute to society. People have been put in an impossible situation where they have to compete against workers with a 3rd world standard of living. I believe that Trump can level the playing field, bring our jobs back and restore dignity to millions of Americans.

    Trump has faced far more adversity then anyone presidential candidate in history. Has he made missteps? Of course. Does he get back out there everyday and face it head on? Amazingly, yes! His work ethic and persistence has to be admired, even by those who dislike him. This man is a true leader and I am proud to support him. Trump 2016!

    Also not so sure I follow the economics of how the ports on all the other locations works. Bulk transport to the closest location for distribution is the most economical. Now that means trucks out of the ports you propose

    Corey saved Ms. Fields from Secret Service action.

    If he had not blocked her from crowding, bumping, grabbing and forcing herself at Trump, she might very well have been knocked away, seized, arrested by Secret Service. Certainly, she was physically challenging the protective circle at point where another SS man might have acted. Because Corey did, that man or one behind did not have to.

    I don’t know why she was allowed to press into and grab Trump twice, but it was bad SS work at that very moment of three or four seconds.

    Fields was totally out of protocol for any press, no other press was doing anything like it, and only the WaPo guy who was writing about such incidents was there, too.

    Interesting when you look at the incident.

    Sadly, Trump would never have ruined her life by filing charges or making an incident that would have cost her a career.

    Yet, a good deed, a good heart gets you nothing in this world. No good deed goes unpunished.

    Fields’ press credentials should be rejected anywhere in politics.
    She should go to work as an escort since her career as an adult has always used her body for what little progress she has made in the world. As an escort she is excellent eye candy, and she will be paid large sums for being fondled and abused for real.

      No. An indie run possibility was a year ago, and would have required 150 million up front, and 200 million to run. A third party has never been the path to victory which is the only goal.

      The easiest route would be take over the weakest party. He took that route.

      Problem has been, Trump is a lone operator. He needed a group of advisers to plan a less organic campaign in strategic moments.

      Iowa was clearly a good run. Could have been better. Might have been stolen, so we will never know. If he won that, it all would be different. Cruz would be out by now.

      Ohio was key. It has led to what we have now.

      Wisconsin was ignored because until the last three weeks Cruz had no RINO backing.
      Once it shifted, Wisconsin looks bad.

      And from here on, Trump must become absolutely ruthless to get and hold every delegate.

      So, his strengths are also his weaknesses.

      But he is one friggin’ magnificent Lion and I expect to see him devour some weak members of the pride.

    • Nope. The Republican party is a party of the people not the elites. I am going to work to take it back. Trump can win this thing.

        When Trump wins, it will be rebranded the Patriots Party. All Establishment will be jailed or running for their lives in Paraguay or some distant corrupt paradise.

    Even if there were time, Indie runs cannot work for anyone due to the way the USA political system is structured. Too many different requirements in the various states. I agree with Bull Durham, DT has to be ruthless in holding his delegates, or game over for all 3 of the current candidates.

    Good tight new poll out from Public Policy shows Cruz one point ahead of Trump. With indications that if Kasich people shift, the spread for Cruz could grow. Cruz has very solid backing, as enthusiastic as Trump. So he won’t slide. Trump needs to hold ground. Campaign has to do its job and I recommend he go on the air with his top issues and spokespeople and voices of the People.

    Pound it and hold the margin. It will deny Cruz a victory that is decisive.

        We have three polls showing Cruz ahead. It’s becoming a trend. I believe they’re probably weighted toward Cruz to a degree but we have enough data I believe Cruz is winning. It won’t matter. though. NY will re-calibrate the race in a couple weeks. RNC knows that. They’re just talking a good game right now.

        Deciding all polls are skewed (like Romney 2012) is never a good idea. It’s one thing like the national Fox poll with Cruz within 3 of Trump and all the other polls show a 15 pt spread. Then, yes, I’m confident Fox national poll is an agenda poll. But when you have a bunch of polls showing one trend, them being agenda polls is much less likely. Though there were all those polls showing Trump only winning FL by 5 and he won by about 20 pts. We won’t know until Tuesday.

    I’m not sure why folks are so apprehensive and panicky here. I realize there are Cruz infiltrators and such — but issues like the trade agreements, and borders are not going away, and they have always been key. And, terrorism resets the dialogue. And Trump is the genuine article and frankly, no one comes close.

    Some of the folks here need to absorb the resolve and resilience of Trump.

    Let me remind you that this is a man that I watched, as did you, quite ridiculed by Obama at the White House correspondents dinner. He came all the way back, and then some. He is leading and with quite a broad base of support. Everyone knows that Cruz support by the establishment is just an effort to get Ryan in as the nominee (or Romney or Rubio). Cruz can not get the nomination, as he will be a mathematical impossibility soon enough. He is simply spoiling for leverage.

    It will take a lot more to break Trump, if at all. We support him because of his positions on issues and because of his clarity on our litmus test voting issues. Everything else is embellished to undermine our resolve. All of it. Don’t fall for the contrived manipulation that extends into the discussion. Do what Trump does. Hit back proud and hard. Laugh off the trolls and get ’em out!

      I believe Trump will get the nomination, but we’re not there yet so people are edgy 🙂 Unfortunately, I’m not sure our win we’ll be as decisive as we’d like to give us a real mandate. Though, we’re not out of the weeds yet. Establishment still has some cards to play and a chance to win (though far less than our side winning).

    Another interesting factoid I saw today was an article I found that talked about Harley’s challenges due to currency manipulation. Now, I don’t think the author of the article realized that was what they were describing, but its there nonetheless.

    This is all particularly relevant to YOU WISCONSIN!! Please take the Red Pill. Thanks!

    http://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/bmw-sales-up-harley-davidson-sales-down-in-first-quarter

    Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson announced yesterday that its first-quarter sales were down 1.3 percent and it is cutting production in the second quarter. Harley-Davidson stock quickly dropped about 9 percent on the news…

    …But the real reason that Harley-Davidson executives kept coming back to in their report was something most U.S. consumers probably don’t consider: the currency exchange rate. If you don’t travel abroad or work for a multinational corporation, you may not even be aware of currency fluctuations, but the fact is, the dollar has been on a tear. Nearly a year ago, it took about $1.40 to buy a euro. Today, it takes $1.08. In the same time, $1 went from buying 101 Japanese yen to being worth 120.

    Since Harley’s main competitors are Japanese and European companies, the falling value of the yen and euro is a headwind for Harley-Davidson. It makes the U.S.-made bikes more expensive in other countries (28.8 percent of Harley’s sales in the first quarter) and lets Japanese and European makers discount the bikes they sell in the United States without taking as big a hit.

    Both of those sides of the exchange rate issue hit Harley, said President and Chief Executive Officer Keith Wandell, who is retiring May 1 after six years leading the company. Harley-Davidson sales were down 5.6 percent in the Europe-Middle East-Africa region, and Japanese competitors were taking advantage of the weak yen to discount competing models in the United States.

    I want to pass on some thought on the uncomfortable subject, just my opinion

    The Trump abortion comment was interesting because everyone knows that although Trump dislikes abortion, he is not an anti abortion activist.

    Whenever Trump drops a shocker, the MSM spends the whole news cycle denouncing the outrage. It’s about one week before the public tunes out. For instance, the Cruz wife shocker is now boring people and not sticking like they hoped. Whodda guessed

    Outrage doesn’t work unless they put Trump on camera for a show trial. This free face time is where Trump works dialogue and invariably reveals a decent trustworthy non politician,

    03-29-16 Scott Walker endorses Cruz. I believe the wive picture news cycle was to be played as the ‘last straw’ that forces, forces Walker to back Cruz just before the Wisconsin primary.

    Wisconsin WTM, open
    Penn P, WTA, closed

    Trump may have guestimated the endorsement was going to come considering how they were timing the picture scandal for Wisconsin. So it is interesting Trump blurts out a deep felt pro life ‘faux pas’

    Trump ruined the original play book

    <blockquote.It has been said that the ideal Pennsylvania candidate is a gun-supporting, pro-life, dynastic Democrat, similar to current senator Bob Casey.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics_of_Pennsylvania</blockquote.

    But Trump has zero history picketing abortion clinics. In fact, he behaves like a NY liberal on the issue, not imposing on women. But he has consistently stated he disliked abortion. I suspect as Trump takes the 3rd degree on this, for about 1 week’s news cycle, we will find he was simply spilling his gut feelings on live birth infanticide and late term brain harvesting.

    Just my opinion. The main way Trump communicate is to seize the news cycle and submit himself to the 3rd degree. The MSM cannot ignore him
