    With Trump, we have leverage over China (economic) – either they rein in their disfunctional client, or they may wind up with warehouse after warehouse of goods they can no longer profitably sell in the States… wanna see a real bubble burst? Well, do ya, punk?

    • Mona, I agree but these tests aren’t about Asia, these are tests for Iran. Note that Iran halted their testing this week as a result of Trumps warning. So North Korea is doing the tests for them since they supplied the technology!

        Exactly!.. that money $$ Obama floated over to the Iranians is now going to N. Korea. N. Korea is hurting for $$ and what a better way to get it from the Iranians via rocket and nuke testing.

    • The most powerful source of leverage over China will be the day Trump and Abe announce their massive “AUTOMATION NATION” joint venture to (1) eliminate any low-cost labor advantage for imports from China, (2) bring product manufacturing back to America from China and (3) fill Japan’s worker shortage with high-productivity automation solutions for labor-intensive manufacturing.

      The fastest source of leverage over China will be the day Trump announces a 5% TARIFF INCREASE on imports from China for EVERY missile launch by their Client State North Korea.

      The hammer source of leverage over China will be the day Trump announces a 5% TARIFF on every country exporting to America that fails to establish a similar 5%TARIFF on its import from China. If further leverage is needed for those countries (who MUST support these sanctions for North Korea’a violation of UN Resolutions), he can (1) announce an END to all forms of American aid to those countries and (2) reduce their Visas to America by 10% per month.

      I’d also like to see China “dump” our debt bonds into the market as retaliation for increased import tariffs. The glut would cause those bonds to significantly drop in price and we could buy a big chunk of our debt on the cheap. This way, we reduce our debt, thus saving $billions and $billions in interest and cripple China’s economy almost overnight by making their products more expensive here. Reduced import from China is compensated by increased internal production in the U,S.A. In sum, a win-win situation for the U.S.A.
      Keep in mind that, right now, China exports to the U.S.A. tax free because of its status as “most favored nation” (given to them by Bill Clinton in exchange for illegal campaign contributions) whereas U.S. products must pay a stiff tariff to enter China.

      This is why American companies that want to sell to the Chinese are forced to produce in China, Companies move and jobs are lost here to be generated there. These companies then export to America tax free. UNFAIR? You bet!

    Do you think Trump will do anything about N. Korea missile test?

    Like bomb them, or take out a boat, or take out the palace or take some action?

    This is a test for Trump.

    What do you guys think he will do, or should do?

    Will he talk N Korea to death like Obama, or do something?

      During the rallies he made mention, more than once, of getting China involved on this one. I think he will do that at some point in time. With this test it might be sooner rather than later.

      “North Korea” has been used by the MSM to distract our attention away from real issues for more than half a century.

      Trump should ignore DPRK. “100%”

        China has a vested interest in keeping NK going, it doesn’t want to deal with hungry refugees flooding the border. They already have a problem with people sneaking over and then essentially being used as slave labor by the local residents to avoid deportation.

        China needs to keep NK in line for its own benefit, Trump merely needs to point this out.

      Why? This is more of a test for China then anything. NK only does the crap it does because it knows big brother China has it’s back.

      I imagine screws at this very moment are being tightened on the geopolitical digits of the Chinese government to drive home that they must strongly influence what the regime in North Korea does and does not do according to what is best for the world at large, and the U.S. in particular.

      North Korea is a clown state, where the clowns are truly evil. North Korea is like a TV Reality Show, because it’s a caricature of a real country, with incompetent actors reading a poorly-written script. Whoever licensed these nitwits needs to rein them in, soon.

      You want to know what Trump will do? Take his word for it (starting at 6:35):

      “They tell me [China] have absolute, total control over North Korea.”

      He will talk to China, and China will hope they don’t get talked to death. Like a previous commenter said, all Trump has to do is to threaten to impose a tariff on China, and remind them that if they don’t play ball, they will have warehouses full of unsold inventory and their economy will drop like a stone. They will have literally been talked to death, no shots fired.

      China has absolute, total control over North Korea. They make North Korea stop, or they will suffer the economic consequences. No military action is required.

    And our adversaries will spend countless hours trying to decipher and determine the direct meaning and intended meaning those twenty two words contain. The bell has pealed the week end… Another week begins in eager anticipation. Godspeed President Trump, and PM Abe.

      I agree with you the words will be deciphered by friend and foe alike.

      My prediction, the talking heads go gaga over the phrase “stands behind”. They will claim POTUS is signaling he/we will defer to Japan in matters in east Asia, blah, blah. It will probably start with the Sunday shows.

      Yesterday, CNBC provided a sample of the MSM reaction. They lied and implied that Pres. Trump was changing his tune with respect to Japan. They grossly misrepresented candidate Trump’ assertion that our allies would have to pay more for American military protection, and made it sound like he had said that he would break the relation. Fake, distorted, invented news; that’s what OLD Media does and they are not even good at it. Always caught with their pants (or skirts) down.


  5. Garrison Hall says:

    California Senator Kevin de Leon, perhaps inadvertently, did us all a favor when he focused national attention on the huge (we’re talking potentially millions if his estimate is correct) number of illegal immigrants who have stolen the identities of real Americans. Ever wonder why Life Lock is such a successful company and how many millions of American citizens now feel the need to have a private security company try to protect their social security information, credit records, and other critical personally identifiable information form identity thieves? Just ask ‘ole Kevin about the half of his family who are here illegally and who have stolen the identities of American citizens so they can work here and take jobs from real Americans. What they have done is identity theft which is a felony. These people who he depicts as just hard working folks who are trying to have a good life are criminals!!. The left and the Mexican nationalists who think the southwestern US belongs to Mexico have spent years trying to cover-up the fact that millions of illegal immigrants are felons who steal identities. Now they can’t minimize this institutionalized criminality. DRAIN THE SWAMP!!

    This is meant as a joke, so don’t take offence:

    It would be kind of cool, if Trump did bombed N. Korea and took out the palace, the bunkers, the missile bases, and said: you launch another missile , I will MAKE YOUR DAY (maybe your last day!)

    It would silence Iran and other countries. They would not mess with the USA or face instant attack. 🙂

    Again, this is meant as joke, but , if Trump actually did bomb them, would you lose sleep over it.

        As I was TRYING to say, yes, bc the people of North Korea are being abused and murdered on a daily basis. Why the US gov. focuses all of it’s ‘human rights’ resources on the stupid middle east I’ll never know (oil), but NK is a hell hole and a direct violation of the human rights act.

          I may be wrong, but we are not in the business of Nation Building. We tried that with Libia, etc; with the previous administration, remember? NATO’s pressure on China is probably the way to go. Not unloading products from Chinese ships, or cancelling orders is a way to go. Financial sanctions would force China to address “Little Brother” N.Korea, (as someone on here said previously) is probably the better way to go.

              You only have to wipe out one nation and the others will sit up and take notice. Carrying a big stick is only intimidating if you occasionally use it.
              The slow death (immigration, death by 1000 cuts) is far, far more destructive.

Build up the defenses in the south, so nobody from north could enter, and force N. Korea people to flood into CHINA! See how China deals with the influx.

    • Americans want the skinny on Fukushima. Many of us follow ENE news. Tell us how much radiation we’ve been exposed to, the damage to our food supply, our DNA, and what amount of cesium and radiation is here.

      Don’t deny. We have the right for full disclosure.

      Then address chemtrail spraying of aluminum and barium. We want the why’s and who is behind it and to them learn when it will STOP.


  18. dalethorn says:

    The major media are the enemy of the people and our president. They have been up front – in our faces every day about that. We have the power to silence most of their anti-American propaganda, simply by terminating all FCC licenses and forcing them to reapply for public service (non-commercial) use only. Allowing them to continue poisoning the minds of our youth is national suicide. We should be in the business of suicide prevention, not suicide enabling.

    Whenever the UN is involved in wars, fighting, push-back et al = America loses.
    Korean War, Vietnam Conflict, Gulf War(s). Allowing the UN to inject themselves in dealing with NKorea again will result in more dead American Soldiers. President Trump’s “pocket-book” solution is the ONLY logical strategy, and let’s hope he is able to keep the UN’s nose out of all of it – because if they’re allowed to interject in ANY WAY, Americans will die.
