President of United Steelworkers Union: “Members Won’t Forget What Trump Did, He Stopped Wealth Transfer”…

Leo Gerard, the President of the United Steelworkers Union, talks to a very frustrated Chuck Todd about the effect of President Trump’s new tariffs and his appreciation therein.

Chuck Todd has all his Media Matters talking points prepared to outline his narrative; however, unfortunately for the toad, he came up against a very knowledgeable union leader with a solid grasp of the details and important specifics.  WATCH:

.

As you can see from President Leo Gerard’s comments he well understands the value of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer and administration trade strategist Peter Navarro. The next phase of MAGAnomic Main Street trade initiatives involves global “trade reciprocity” advancement.

    https://nypost.com/2017/09/16/the-day-that-destroyed-the-working-class-and-sowed-the-seeds-for-trump/

    From then on, this date in 1977 would be known as Black Monday in the Steel Valley, which stretches from Mahoning and Trumbull counties in Ohio eastward toward Pittsburgh. It is the date when Youngstown Sheet and Tube abruptly furloughed 5,000 workers in one day.

    The bleeding never stopped.

    Within the next 18 months, US Steel announced that the nation’s largest steel producer was also shutting down 16 plants across the nation, including their Ohio Works in Youngstown, a move that eliminated an additional 4,000 workers here. That announcement came one day before Jones and Laughlin Steel Corp. said they were cutting thousands of jobs at their facilities in the Mahoning Valley, too.

    Within a decade, 40,000 jobs were gone. Within that same decade, 50,000 people had left the region, and by the next decade, that number was up to 100,000. Today the 22 miles of booming steel mills and the support industries that once lined the Mahoning River have mostly disappeared — either blown up, dismantled or reclaimed by nature.

    If a bomb had hit this region, the scar would be no less severe on its landscape…

      Gee…President Carter really effed up things in four short years – if you think “globalization” began with GHW Bush, think again. He oversaw this and did nothing to level the playing field against Chinese and Japanese steel that caused this to happen.

      Then the ***** added the Dept of Education and let Iran fall and our citizens stew in captivity.

        I’m in industrial/commercial HVAC.

        Carter mandated something like 78 cooling set point and 66 heating set point.

        The cooling setpoint caused extremely high levels of humidity which in turn made buildings fall apart (floors bucked, carpet rotted, rust exploded) and mold growth exploded, people sickened. Productivity fell like a rock.

        Skyscrapers have so much internal heat load the we had to run the chillers all winter to cool the buildings!

        Net result was increased energy costs, lower productivity, and health problems.

        Damned stupid for a “nuclear engineer”.

      Thank you Stella, I always enjoy learning numbers and facts. It was also heart wrenching to read of all the jobs that were lost in a short period of time. Especially where we once had ruled the world with our Steel.

      It didn’t take them much to destroy such a large part of us did they? And this was only one market.

      I’ve been hearing steel workers cheering across the country for our President Trump. They are ever so proud of him and the fight he took on for them and for all of us. Coal workers are right there with them along with aluminum.

      We have three more years of this kind of winning. It’s impossible for me to think a democrat will take over his job in 2020, not with all of what he is doing. There are so many of us who are feeling first hand how good it feels to have one in his power have our backs and truly mean it. To make such a difference in our lives.

      No, I won’t become complacent, but gosh darn it, the Dems have nothing but hate. It’s becoming really tiresome with their attacks against the one man doing all he can for all of us. It’s also becoming pretty transparent. If we come back out with our monster vote, not only us, but the rest of the world will see how truly happy we are with our President Trump. We will have more Dems than ever crossing over.

      That story could also be written about how the Textile Industry disappeared from the South, leaving hundreds of towns and cities w/no jobs and abandoned factories as they headed South to Mexico. Generations had raised families from work in the textile plants. Overnight, the jobs were gone.

      The same can be said about the furniture industry in Va. and NC. Skilled Craftsmen put out of work when the cheap furniture started pouring in from China. The largest furniture expo in the world, held in High Point NC, the furniture capitol of the world, which drew thousands to the surrounding cities and added hundreds of millions to the triad’s economy disappeared along with the plants and jobs. Many furniture retailers who sold the locally made brand name furniture to people all over the country who came to the large showrooms also disappeared.

      If we can ever bring back the mfg., we will bring back the jobs and the pride of working and contributing. I pray that I will live long enough to see it. W/O it , America will never be great again. How our pols. sold us out to the globalists for ten pieces of silver is criminal and the bastards should be hanged. How we let it happen is even more depressing.

        These two industries should be our next push before the expert craftsmen who can train the next generation disappear. It would be nice to wear an article of clothing that lasts more than one season and especially gratifying to have furniture that doesn’t come in a box with instructions in five foreign languages. My best friend worked in the furniture industry from High Point to Burlington, VT to Lafayette, IN to Senatobia, MS as a trouble-shooter through trying times. Sad, sad, sad.

          rashomon, we had our furniture made in No. Carolina and waited months for it to be made and shipped to us. Almost 48 years later it is still in great shape and beautiful and only had the living room sofa recovered several years ago because of the design we wanted. Whole living room suite, bedroom suite, and dining room suite all from REAL wood and total cost was $3000K. Where today can you get great quality in furniture when sometimes only one piece costs $3000K? Yes, we need to bring back a lot of industries for better quality and costs. Made in America will look great again.

        In the mid 80’s, I worked for a power transmission distributor in Clifton, NJ.
        As a life-long resident of Long Island, NY, I had just transferred to our NJ branch and was unfamiliar with the area. We had a small machine shop that we did a lot of business with in Passaic. The first time I went there, I was in awe…the shop was in a very large industrial complex and as I drove through the complex all of the buildings, maybe a hundred or more large buildings were empty as I made my way to this small machine shop, one of the few buildings that any sign of life. I commented to the shop owner that it looked like a ghost town and he informed me that it had once been filled with a thriving textile industry that was now gone…it wasn’t just in the South.

          Textiles had been moving south for decades at that point but supposed free trade moved them out of my current home of NC.

      from 1972 /2016 I was a steel&alum worker and saw first hand the demise of the big steel & alum industry. My career in distribution started in the warehouse,shipping&rcvg,inventory control inside&outside sales.
      I traveled to Pittsburg ,Johnstown to the Far East of PA, NY,Ohio,Ind.,Illinois,Mich,Wisconsin Midwest out to the west coast.
      In the late 70’s the ind. started the decline with many contributing factors but it was heartbreaking to myself,my family like so many people.
      Try to imagine how metal production impacts the economy. From mining to transport to producing a melt of metal. Then shipping the raw metal to oem’s,machine tool makers,fabricators,etc.
      When the economy slows down the metal ind.is the first to take a hit and when metals start to pick up the nation will soon follow.
      What POTUS has done with across the board tariffs on offshore metals is gonna have a YUGE impact the nations ecomony! Like Leo said his union members won’t forget and countless other workers won’t either. Winning is toot sweet .

      But, but….according to the globalist international America deserved what it got from its own Presidents and politicians.
      And just coincidentally those lost communities jobs were converted into financial assets overseas for US and foreign multinationals to leverage back into the US consumer market.

      Want to destroy families and historic national cultural values because no employment stability is possible? Then give them part time service jobs. Clinton and Bush and Obama, we know what you did.

      What you described also happened in the Mon Valley in Pittsburgh. Once thriving steel towns were obliterated and allowed to deteriorate into poverty, desperation, and hopelessness. These jobs that were lost decimated a prosperous middle class and no one thought they would ever come back. President Trump is reversing that narrative and hopefully bringing a revitalization to these once lost communities.

      Oh, Stella, we remember that day well. It snowed in Pensacola. But back home, that was the day the music died. You’ve no idea the devastation that followed. So many little plants that fed and relied on Y-town S&T died. All the other plants followed rapidly.

      After the Corps, every plant in which i worked – 8 total – were bought out, sometimes by a foreign company, sometimes by an American company, and all were rapidly closed. No one stood a chance. My last plant was closed by David Stockman, whom many now worship for financial advice. Evil evil man.

      Every trip to the VA takes one past the closed plants and vacant union halls. It is heartrending. But the union guys are still here, and the vets. We talk – I listen – at the VA. They now have real hope.

      Oldskool, it is up to us to seek out real patriot candidates and inform them they are elected/hired to represent us and not outsiders and no lifetime benefits either. The salary is large enough to take care of them and family because how many families do you know that have close to $200K salary. Damn few, thank you. Start looking now and prep them as candidates in November. Remember we are the People of the Republic (again, we are not a democracy, praise God) and it is our job to set standards and not any of the 3 departments to go beyond their duties, that is the Executive, the Legislative and Supreme Court. We also need to push for retirement age, removal if we see dementia, and not working with each party as we are supposed to do. This is OUR JOB!

      TwoLaine, was listening to PBS News Hour (which I don’t normally since they have become 100% democrat) and yep right off the bat saying no way can this work with NK on getting rid of nuclear stuff, and his own party is not happy with the tariffs and trade changes. I can assume PBS is also not happy we no longer donate to them but they don’t change their tune that their news is not biased! Really? And the RINOS not supporting the man who made them relevant again and gave them power, most of which they have wasted, need to have their heads knocked together to wake up and smell the coffee. I see several want to not run again because they see what is happening and they want to be sure they get those lifetime benefits because we want that taken away. We did not vote nor authorize them, so no way, Jose! And then Hatch thinks trade/tariff stuff should be taken away from Trump. Get real, you RINOS and naysayers, this is OUR country, remember? We own it and not you.

When dims get back in control, and they will at some point, they are going to triple down on their commie agenda. I see no way out of this by the ballot box.

Here the US, it took them 3 full generations to take full control of the education system and 2 generations to gain near full control of the media. The education system will be pumping out disciples and media will keep the mushrooms. We will need another Trump and a Republican Party that actually believes in his governing principles, to develop over the next 8-years.

My guess is that he is 10 steps ahead on how to deal with the end of his term. I would wager that he is not going to put all of this effort and sacrifice for it to be undone when he is out of office. Trump is way to smart for that. The Dems and RINOs are going to be in for a rude awakening.

    A further exploration here goes even beyond the tariffs and the recommissioning of idled plants and the rehiring of their former workers. The decline in regulations, and the new tax policies not only let the companies see the benefits of expanding, but allow them to write off their capital expenditures in the same year they are performed. This is huge (bigly), and are going to drive an economic renaissance like we haven’t seen for generations.

Our currency used to be the foundation of the world economy until Tricky Dicky finished off the soundness of it, and it started when FDR confiscated all of the gold coins. If our money had intrinsic value, as it did during the time when we were going up and up economically, we could step on all competitors. It was free enterprise that lifted Americans up, with a dollar that was worth ten times what it is now. We are carrying a load of dead weight that is dragging us down.
