Three Deplorables Went to Davos…

In September of 2015 we shared one of the overarching reasons why CTH would support Donald Trump for President. – SEE HERE –  This week, the sentiment behind that reasoning showed up in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum; we could not be more proud.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (Wednesday), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (Thursday) and U.S. President Donald Trump (Friday), collectively outlined how our new U.S. trade and economic policy would engage with the world.

Many media voices (narrative engineers) will, and have, continue to obfuscate, spin, and make predictive declarations about U.S. economic policies based on their ideological views of what President Trump could do, should do, or will do.  They will try to convince the  American electorate of POTUS Trump’s forward plans.  Most of what they declare is false.

In case you missed it, and if you want to know what the accurate compass heading is, skip the media and allow yourselves to rely on the direct message as delivered. You’ll avoid a great deal of heartburn.

The MAGA economic policy explanation begins with trade, Wilbur Ross:


The MAGA economic policy explanation is enhanced by finance, Steven Mnuchin:


The America-First economic policy is wrapped up by President Trump (transcript here):


[…] America is roaring back, and now is the time to invest in the future of America. We have dramatically cut taxes to make America competitive. We are eliminating burdensome regulations at a record pace. We are reforming the bureaucracy to make it lean, responsive, and accountable. And we are ensuring our laws are enforced fairly.

We have the best colleges and universities in the world, and we have the best workers in the world. Energy is abundant and affordable. There has never been a better time to come to America.

[…]  In rebuilding America, we are also fully committed to developing our workforce. We are lifting people from dependence to independence, because we know the single best anti-poverty program is a very simple and very beautiful paycheck.

To be successful, it is not enough to invest in our economy. We must invest in our people. When people are forgotten, the world becomes fractured. Only by hearing and responding to the voices of the forgotten can we create a bright future that is truly shared by all.

The nation’s greatness is more than the sum of its production. A nation’s greatness is the sum of its citizens: the values, pride, love, devotion, and character of the people who call that nation home.

[…] Each of you has the power to change hearts, transform lives, and shape your countries’ destinies. With this power comes an obligation, however — a duty of loyalty to the people, workers, and customers who have made you who you are.

So together, let us resolve to use our power, our resources, and our voices, not just for ourselves, but for our people — to lift their burdens, to raise their hopes, and to empower their dreams; to protect their families, their communities, their histories, and their futures.

That’s what we’re doing in America, and the results are totally unmistakable. It’s why new businesses and investment are flooding in. It’s why our unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been in so many decades. It’s why America’s future has never been brighter.

Today, I am inviting all of you to become part of this incredible future we are building together.

Thank you to our hosts, thank you to the leaders and innovators in the audience. But most importantly, thank you to all of the hardworking men and women who do their duty each and every day, making this a better world for everyone.

Together, let us send our love and our gratitude to make them, because they really make our countries run. They make our countries great.

Thank you, and God bless you all. Thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you very much. (link)

As shared in September of 2015Why do I support Donald Trump

donald trump smirk… because he says: “Make America Great Again”! And when Trump says that I hear:

Someone who gives a damn about America, without apology; which is more valuable to me than a perfected highly-rehearsed skill set of 30 second sound bites and white paper policy instructions.

From my perspective any average hard-working American could eat every one of these pinky ring candidates’ lunches, all of them; and if they want to go down the intellectual superiority path… well, that stuff is useless.

  • Florida Power and Light won the prestigious International Edward Demming award for excellence in multi-platform engineering and efficiency superiority. They didn’t blow every PhD intellectual out of the water with slide rules, CAD programs and engineering acumen. They did it with hard hats and dirty fingernails.

Because they lost the award, the Japanese spent 6 months studying FPL and later published a 1,000 page dissertation essentially saying FPL “wasn’t really good, they were just lucky”….. FPL field leadership laughed, took out markers and wrote on the back of their hard hats: WE’RE NOT GOOD, WE’RE RUCKY….

  • When every single Kuwaiti oil field was blown up by Saddam Hussein, they said it would take 5 years to cap them all off and restart their oil pumping industry. The Kuwaiti’s and Saudi’s called Texans, who had them all capped and back in working order in 10 months.

We are a nation that knows how to get shit done.

  • When the Northern Chile mine workers were trapped two miles underground, they said no-one could save them. Who did they call for help? A bunch of hick miners from USA coal country who went down there, worked on the fly, engineered the rescue equipment on site, and saved everyone of them….

That’s our America.

  • When a half-breed Islamic whack job, armed with an AK-47 and a goal to meet his seven virgins, began opening fire on a train in France, the Americans on board didn’t run to the nearest safe room and hide themselves amid baguettes and brie. They said “let’s go”, and beat the stuffing out of that little nut with a death wish.

Legion d’Honneur or not, that’s us. That’s just how we roll.

Lady Liberty can stroll along the Champs-Elysées with a swagger befitting Mae West because without her arrival they’d be speaking German in the Louvre. Yet for the better part of the past decade a group of intellectual something-or-others have been teaching an insufferable storyline that it’s better to be sitting around a campfire eating sustainable algae cakes and picking parasites off each other.


When I hear Donald Trump say “Let’s Make America Great Again”, I also hear the familiar echo “cowboy up” people.

It’s high time we stop being embarrassed about our exceptional nature, and start being proud of it again. Because when it matters most, when it really counts, when it’s really needed, there’s a whole bunch of people all around this world of ours that are mighty happy when swagger walks in to solve their problems.

Yeah, “let’s make America great again”. Swagger on !

    There is a single word that sums up Trump’s entire message, which is repeated over and over in this speech. It is a word totally missing from Obama’s message and narrative of Democrats. It is the word “WE”.

    It is not diversity by unified effort, direction and vision that is the power that has won wars, built a nation everybody wants to join, is the first to arrive to aid in disasters and still offers the ideals and hope despite its flaws to the world..

      SD going with DJT was an absolutely critical decision in getting America back on track to its proper destiny. But it could not have happened otherwise. The choice of Trump was CLEAR to those who looked beyond the surface, and SD, of all people, looks beyond the surface.

      I slept in. This was a great thing to wake up to.
      This article brought me back to June 2015, when I signed up to volunteer for Trump the day after he announced his candidacy. Two things still strike me to this day. His comments about “political correctness”, and, the fact that Melania had his back. Nothing quite said we have a winner than those two things (at least IMHO).

    Thanks for posting these! Wilbur Ross reminds me of Yoda with his wisdom and his refusal to let somebody muddy his messages. Mnuchin does a terrific job clearing up misconceptions as well. It’s clear the Globalists are beginning to realize they better get on board with our policies or risk being left behind and It’s amazing watching our country be respected and maybe a little feared once again. FYI the guys who went down and saved those miners were actually oilfield drillers, albeit out of coal country, as well, it was Yost Drilling out of Mount Morris PA, which was later acquired by Nomac Drilling (part of Chesapeake Energy at the time.). I know many of those guys personally.

    and another thing “US taking a leadership role..” to these guys means the US bending over and taking it long and hard without lube. Screw them.


  11. The top video covering views from Wilbur Ross is invaluable in both scope of insights and clarity of description. He comes across as our giant among pygmies.

    Example beginning at 56:15:
    • ~”It’s very hard to deal with someone [China] charging a 10% tariff on [auto or steel] imports when he’s facing 2.5% on exports to you.”

    How that plays out imposes INCREDIBLE DAMAGE on American Industrial Capacity & JOBS.
    • China charges the U.S. 10% on imports from America.
    • China then uses that 10% to subsidize its exports to America that incurs a maximum 2.5% tariff.
    • China has created a 17.5% advantage – on top of OTHER Centrally-Planned Economy subsidies – to undermine, say, our steel and aluminum industries.
    • China routes steel shipments through multiple countries to evade unfair-trade sanctions.
    • It takes months or years to impose sanctions on one of those transit breaches.
    • Every time we impose sanctions on one of those TRANSIT countries, they switch to another.
    • Each switch takes weeks at ZERO cost compared to months or years for America to defeat it at HIGH cost to both our undermined industries’ profit, capacity and jobs, not to mention the government and legal resources consumed to fight it.

    • It gets WORSE:
      • Each time we pursue sanctions, China declares it’s what the TRANSIT COUNTRY did beyond Chinese control.
      • So we must go after another TRANSIT Country trading “partner” that then imposes counter-penalties on OTHER American industry exports to them, or taxes on American industry operations within their borders.
      • China skates free on this one.
      • Whenever China faces a trade penalty for CHEATING in one American Industry, they simply extract more FORCED TRANSFERS of INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY and TRADE SECRETS from America’s other Tech-Heavy Industries doing business in China.
      • The Trade-Abuse continues to ENTANGLE America both internally and externally at geometrically-escalating levels of COMPLEXITY and COST!

    • This is why Wilburine is racing to END ALL of China’s Export Advantages.
      • He’s just sanctioned China on their Solar Panel trade abuse.
      • He’s got multiple other China Trade-Abuse Investigations underway..
      • He’s accused China of Currency Manipulation.
      • He’s also fingered China for massive Theft of Intellectual Property.
      • China’s facing YUGE cutbacks in Industrial Exports to America under federal policy to “Buy America”, along with President Trump’s initiative to Reindustrialize America.
      • China’s Prices and Profits for ALL Exports to America are dropping with decreases in the value and therefore the buying power of the Dollar.
      • Wilburine is now MULTIPLYING “Reciprocal, Free and Fair” Bilateral Trade Deals with rapidly-growing countries that can DISPLACE IMPORTS from CHINA in both low labor-cost and higher-tech export industries: India, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Vietnam, etc.
      • These Bilateral Deals have such scope and magnitude, and such straightforward Enforcement Mechanisms, that NO Bilateral Partner would EVER cheat America again.

      What’s NEXT: What would President Trump have in mind for his announced willingness to reenter a Renegotiated Paris Climate Deal that is “Good for the U.S.”?
      • China must MASSIVELY invest in emissions reduction and control to meet American standards.
      • China must EQUAL the share-of-GDP funding that America is providing to Third World producers that cannot afford emissions-reduction investments.
      • Third-World Countries that need funding for emissions reduction from America will receive it in return for a COMPENSATORY share of export industries or natural resources that America needs, displacing China’s business with them when China refuses to provide the funding above.

    Plain spoken American common sense that America needs, and has always expected, though not experienced since Ronaldus Magnus Trump is much bolder, energetic and extraordinaIly gifted communicator, and fearless.

    If others listen and put their Deplorables first, so does the World need this. Alas, while only a very few will immediately follow US, all will watch carefully. None can launch any criticism of US trade policy changes just announced, or soon coming, that withstands the application of logic, inside the US or outside.

    Love our Lion and his incredible cabinet, putting America first and proud to explain to the world. Wilburine my favorite.

    Amen. The global financial players are willing to go along with Trump’s plan to exit QE in a coordinated strategy to float all boats. Shocking figure that 72% of all savings reside just in France and Germany. All that pent up capital held by fearful savers is being give a route to investment.

    Jesus’ parable about the 10 talents is as true today as it was then. The servant with 1 talent was afraid amd buried it in savings. The other two took risks and doubled their talents. Jesus damned the 1st and praised the latter 2.

  17. Sentient says:

    Alan Murray from Time has such a facile understanding of trade it’s no wonder he’s a journalist. He kept asking the same nonsensical question: “if the US doesn’t lead on trade, who will?” despite Wilbur Ross repeatedly schooling him that US “leadership” has essentially been a form of foreign aid by our tolerating higher tariffs and non-tariff barriers than we impose. Who will take up our erstwhile “role”? No one. No one else is that stupid.

    The Time interviewer who goes to Davos off and on over decades and confidently poses leading questions attempting to get Europeans to agree America’s new direction is harmfully disengaging and destructively unilateral, over and over and over, bugs me. And he shows himself to be rather thick when Wilbur challenges to panel to name a country less protectionist than the U.S. The Time guy plays Cathy Newman to Wilbur’s Jordan Peterson by asking, “Are you saying China is less protectionist?” Wilbur must now answer the dumbest person in the room who happens to be conducting the forum, naturally employed by Time, “No, that’s not what I’m saying.”

    I agree with Sentient and bour3 on their observations. I would add that I was surprised (a little bit anyway) as well, at the conciliatory attitude of the panel towards US policy notwithstanding the comments by Winters and “DMac” about “the rhetoric”. Careful fellas, your anti-Trumpism is showing. Wilburine may look totally relaxed, but he is so sharp and on the ball that whenever there are comments made that are derogatory statements, outright disregarding of history or facts or misleading narratives he is on the spot in correcting the record or providing the proper understanding. Much to learn from this Wilburine!

    Isn’t just so typical of their playbook for the Dems to try and undercut the great showing in Davos by Trump and his cabinet by pulling out the stupid allegation about Trump’s wanting to fire Mueller back in June? The NYT and WaPo must have several of these nonsensical stories stuffed up their sleeves to pull out whenever Trump has a good showing and they desperately need something to change the narrative of the news cycle to diminish any credit Trump can receive. It now is so predictable and pathetic.

    Commenting on Wilburine’s panel. It Seneca like the conversation you might have with a basement dwelling millennial who’s being told he was no longer allowed to live in the basement and had 30 days to get a job and his own apartment


  23. Davos is not only known for the elite attendees, it is also a logistical challenge to get all the people and equipment through the snow ❄️❄️❄️❄️.

    With that in mind, go back and check out the panel in the video of Mnuchin —- and pay attention to the footwear of each panelist. I couldn’t help but laugh.

    Can you tell who came prepared to get sh1t done? 😽

    I took a look at all 17 candidates.

    President Trump was the ONLY one who:
    1. Fully supported the 2nd Amendment and actually understood it wasn’t about hunting… animals
    2. Understood TPP was a death wish
    3. The Paris Accord was so crippling it would bring the USA to it’s knees while allowing China to surge ahead
    4. Open borders is the best way to destroy a country via invasion.
