Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Deconstructs Matt Lauer’s Talking Points…

Earlier today Secretary of Commerce Wilbur “Wilburine” Ross was interviewed by Today host Matt Lauer. Wilburine doesn’t suffer fools especially when they are quoting from oppositional talking points disconnected from facts.

Lauer throws the progressive talking points and Wilburine simply chews through them while reminding Lauer the Paris Treaty was about economics not climate.

.

The underlying principle of the Trump Economic Team’s policy is how they plan to effectively grow the economy beyond the current 1-1.5%. Without the insufferable regulation, and with renegotiated trade deals, the baseline for economic growth jumps enormously.

This is the fundamental disconnect most financial and economic followers are missing. All current assumptions for growth are predicated on the burdensome status quo; remove those blocks and the national GDP has no upper limit. Three to four percent (or higher) growth becomes the reality.

        Mark T not only did he cut Lauer down to size, he went after their messiah! Their messiah can never be wrong. Yet the Wilburine got Lauer to admit that the deal China got compared to us was very different!

          The US leads, we do not follow everyone else down the wrong path no matter how many are on it.

          If the whole wide world wants to go down the wrong path to “climate control” correction we will march to our own drummer.

            As Ross pointed out, it’s not that the other counties are wrong, per se, it’s that we would’ve been committed to forking over our money to them, and they would have gotten our money. Helluva deal for a developing country. They want us to feel guilty and pay for our supposed damage to the climate over the last 125 years, whereas I think the rest of the world owes America for developing everything from cars, airplanes, the assembly line, GPS, computers, the internet, TV, the green revolution, etc etc. Sure, we emitted some CO2 along the way, but we gave the world much of what constitutes modern civilization. By all rights, they should be paying us, but a simple “thank you” would suffice, and there’s no way in hell we should be paying others out of some misplaced guilt.

          Fleporeblog,
          True, however, he just couldn’t resist throwing in that China had promised to cut their emissions by 60% after 2030, and not allowing Ross Wilbur to respond. Got me angry as all get because I would have loved to have heard his response.

          Does anyone seriously believe China will cut it by 60% after they’ve been allowed to do whatever until then? I sure as heck don’t see them doing it. I thought they were just blowing smoke, so they can continue doing whatever they want just like they have always done. JMO.

    It is brilliant! We want to work with countries throughout the world to show them our technology and innovation that has been used throughout the past 20+ years to reduce our carbon emission by 16%. As a matter of fact, we can sell that technology to them. Our energy folks can come in and show them how to develop clean coal and how to frack the land so not to pollute the environment. This would be a BOOM for American jobs and money into our economy!

        Mike Lee was on Lou Dobbs last night saying what the idiot had signed was not even legally binding due to our laws in our Constitution. In order for it to have been legal, congress would have had to okayed it. They didn’t. An E.O. as the idiot did was not legal by any means of our Constitution, so I don’t get why that other idiot claimed that our President couldn’t just walk away when he did just that. I believe that other idiot was German because he said he’d speak in easy to understand German or some such bs. I think he is one of the top unelected dogs at the EU.

        So realistically it was never legal to start with. We never had any skin in the game. Our last president, the one who I repeatedly call an idiot, knew this and didn’t care anyways.

        I wish the msm would tell the people it was never legally binding to begin with. It would save a lot of this ridiculous grandstanding bs, but then I’d be asking for them to be honest, and that just isn’t going to happen.

        I may not like Mike Lee anymore or trust him, but he made a very valid point, which should have ended all of this nonsense.

        Why we should be “technically” in an unratified treaty–a document signed by a President who then pretended it had the force of law–is beyond my comprehension. Presidents can sign such documents and do whatever is in their regulatory authority to comply with them, but until they are ratified by the Senate, they are purely voluntary on our part.

      Here’s another thing. If we are talking about concern for the wellbeing of the *planet*, then CO2 is the most important gas to have in the atmosphere. It is estimated that there are 3trn trees on the planet, or about 400 for every man,woman and child on the planet. Lose the plants, and the whole animal kingdom goes extinct in short order, including us.

      Trees and plants generally prefer their CO2 levels at around 1500ppm (parts per million). At 180-200ppm, they basically suffocate. Levels are currently at 400ppm, so we’re at the “sicker” end of the scale for vegetation. CO2 has risen a bit in recent times, and the benefits of that can already be seen. A study by NASA shows that there has been a significant greening of the planet over the last thirty five years, since we were able to visualise it via satellites.

      CO2 is the “bogeyman”, because through it, practically everything can be controlled. Pretty much any effort that is expended, whether by muscle or engine creates CO2, and if a price can be put on it, we are on the road eventually to an individual carbon credit card. It will be topped up each year to give you a basic living, but if you like to travel, you will have to top it up. Cyclists will have to pay because all that extra effort (we breathe out at a rate of 40,000 ppm), is going to add to the “pollution”. Utterly dystopian.

    BUT…once he became the skeptical environmentalist – whose views would do nothing to empower globalists to control the world through egregious penalties and restrictions – he was dropped and demonized and all of his old evidence continued to be used.

    Sound familiar anyone? It’s leftist tactics 101 for ANYONE who dares to defect.

    Yo Matt, you and the Today show are the very definition of minutiae every day, all day. Its not even debatable. China/2030 is hardly minutiae, asshat.

    All Matt Lower wanted to talk about was minutia, until all minutia goes against
    his GloCoPro Agenda.
    Wilburine is a Killer.
    But softly.
    So softly that it scares the willies out of ’em.

      Lauer could see he was getting pasted, so he “let it go at that”.

      Lauer crowed about “all those other countries” being ‘for’ the agreement as if that was some sort of ‘proof’ of the scientific veracity of the document. It is NOT. Those countries were conspiring to get the better of the United States, pure and simple.

      Ross and President Trump put a stop to that.

      I don’t believe Lauer wanted to delve into the minutia at all because the minutia doesn’t support his narrative. It’s funny that he thought he could win that argument with Wilbur. 😂

      Lauer is the kid who would jump off the cliff just because his friends told him it was a good idea.

    “You’re taking as a given that the Obama administration is right and that any other action is wrong.” Matt is no match for Wilbur. What makes these media hacks think it isn’t obvious what they are up to. might as well be interviewed by the DNC.

    I love our Wilburine. When he started giving Matt Lauer the logic of why the US is dropping out, Lauer cut the interview. I don’t see any of the MSM bringing up the fact that Obama put us on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars without any congressional or senate approval. Therefore, our signing of the Paris accord doesn’t mean anything. It is not a real treaty, at least for the US.

    Matt Lauer is such a buffoon. Did you catch that moment at the end? Ross thanked Lauer for having him on the show, and Lauer responded with a rather harsh “uh huh.” The hatred is palpable, yet Wilbur Ross doesn’t seem to acknowledge it because it doesn’t matter. Matt Lauer can give himself an ulcer if he wants to, but he can’t stop the Wilburine from doing his job.

    Every aggressive interview and liberal bitch session reminds me once again just how close we came to our country’s final ruination. The socialists hate this country with every fiber of their being. They came SO CLOSE to realizing all their destructive fantasies only to lose it all in 2016. Not just with the election of the Trump administration, but with senators, representatives, govenors, and state legislators. They lost. It. ALL. And their hatred of us now is an inferno inside them. Thank God for Wilbur Ross and the rest of our executive team.

      Frank – you are so right about Mr. Ross. He has the objectivity and clarity that comes with age and wisdom. He is never bothered by all the “nattering nabobs” because he KNOWS they don’t matter, just as you said. I have noticed this with him time and again as goes up against these maroons. He states his case clearly and succinctly and moves on. Enough said. I am sure it drives them absolutely nuts to be dismissed so handily.

    Carbon DIOXIDE, which is what the Paris boondoogle deals with, isn’t a pollutant.

    Which is why the Leftists’ Gang of Thieves have rebranded it as “carbon.” They never say “carbon dioxide,” always “carbon” — and a lot of sloppy conservative commentators have fallen into the same habit. They want us to hear “carbon” and think “soot.”

    Carbon DIOXIDE — VERY DIFFERENT MOLECULE.

  48. Lauer’s final point was that, yes, China doesn’t have to reduce admissions until 2030, but they “promised” they would reduce them by 60% after 2030.

    Lauer, if China quadruples their emissions between now and 2030 when they are unrestricted, and then reduces that 300% increase by 60% after 2030, isn’t it wonderful that they got to actually increase their emissions in those 13 years by 160% (a 300% increase followed by a 60% decrease) while the US was forced under the treaty to reduce its emissions from where we are today. And that presumes China did the 60% decrease in the first year after 2030. Over what period of time is China actually allowed to cover the 60% reduction?

    Here’s the real sobering thought, though, Lauer. What happens in 2030 when it comes time for China to reduce their emissions by 60% and they respond with a middle digit salute and say “we’re not going to reduce anything.” Who will challenge them? Perfumed princes like 0bama and Macron? Don’t make me laugh.

    It’s obvious Lauer never wrote a book entitled “The Art of the Deal.”
