Lou Dobbs Interviews Wilbur Ross on Tariff’s Targeting China…

Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross appears on Lou Dobbs show to discuss the ongoing trade initiatives against China and the issues of intellectual property theft.

.

Additionally, CNBC is reporting on possible retaliatory trade action by China in response:

CNBC – China’s commerce ministry proposed a list of 128 U.S. products as potential retaliation targets, according to a statement on its website posted Friday morning.

The U.S. goods, which had an import value of $3 billion in 2017, include wine, fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts, steel pipes, modified ethanol, and ginseng, the ministry said. Those products could see a 15 percent duty, while a 25 percent tariff could be imposed on U.S. pork and recycled aluminum goods, according to the statement.

The statement did not go into greater detail. U.S. agricultural products, particularly soybeans, have been flagged as the biggest area of potential retaliation by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s administration.  (read more)

Wait, China bought out Smithfield Foods, the U.S. #1 pork producer, back in 2013.  So big panda is going to tax themselves…. priceless.

And, as we have mentioned, China purchases a tremendous amount of our steel and aluminum products for recycling into their own finished products.  A 25% tariff on U.S. aluminum recycles would mean increased aluminum remains available within the U.S. for our own manufacturing – at a lower price.  Another win.

      Back in the 90’s, our craft industry was booming! People from China used to come here with their cameras and take photos of hand-stitched quilts with unique designs created by the quilter.

      Those designs would show up on the market in a couple of months, sold for 1/4 the price of what was available at the craft shows and JC Penny, Dollar General, Walmart and Sears were selling these imported copies dirt cheap!

      The same went for a lot of other crafts and then they got into the craft supply business and literally crashed our markets!

      Michael’s Arts & Crafts put my mother out of business and a lot of other mom and pop craft supply stores. Ben Franklin’s Crafts Supplies and Mae’s Fabrics went under because of it. I think there is only 1 Ben Franklin’s left.

      For you younger people that weren’t old enough to remember, Cottage Industries were the backbone of our economy. There were those small businesses that became a regular business and then there were those stay at home mom’s and grandma’s on Social Security that used to make extra money using what was left from the Cutting Rooms of the clothing manufacturing here in the USA.

      My neighbor, Ruthie’s Mother was blind and deaf and she created some of the most beautiful crocheted rugs from those cutting rooms. When I was a little girl I used to go up there and help her rip the strips before they were stitched together. And I used to watch her for hours. I thought it was an honor when she allowed me to thread some of her needles! I was in awe of her! A completely blind woman hand sewing fabric strips together and then crocheting rugs out of them and they lasted forever!

      When new cutting rooms opened up in the USA, the NWO Globalists dipped their hand in that basket, too! They pushed for recycling the fabric leftovers instead of selling them!

      In fact, the NWO Globalists have pretty much taken just about everything that could be used by poor people and pushed to have it recycled.

      I wish we had enough time to reverse this trend. Cottage Industries might not ever make a comeback!

        Another US industry that was systematically destroyed by Globalists, was the hardwood veneer industry. Hardwood veneers are, or were, used in the manufacture of high end furniture and paneling. 50 years ago most veneer mills were relatively small, family owned companies. The effort to wipe them out began with unfettered log exports, which served to run up the prices of raw materials. Then came OSHA, which worked hand in glove with the unions to further chip away at these small manufacturing companies. The onerous EPA regulations and a strong influx of German investment (Globalists?) teamed up to put the final nail in the coffin in the 90s.
        Now millennials buy junk foreign made furniture at big box stores, all of which will find it’s way to American landfills within 10 years, only to be replaced by more junk. I suspect there are many more similar stories about other small US industries.

        Backwoodsgirl123, I remember the fabric stores that my mother and I used to shop at for material, as we made our own clothes. We bought remnants and could make quality clothes very reasonably. I used to make prom gowns for my daughters and their friends and I would go from one fabric store to another buying the materials I needed. I had my favorites. Now it is all Joann Fabrics and there is no choice anymore. i hate monopolies. And only half the store is yard goods, the rest is crafts. I used to dream of owning a little fabric store myself and making clothes for people on the side. That is a thing of he past.

          And the fabric now IS CRAP!

          I make my own saddle pads and I can not get any good fake fur. If you hold up the stuff from China you can SEE through it!!! Luckily the last time we were up in the Boston MA area we went to a mill end store and I bought $400.00 worth of fake fur.

          The same goes for good rope. Try finding decent polyester or nylon rope. It is generally braided with a garbage (literally) fill. When I went to melt the ends to prevent unraveling it stunk and caught on fire instead of melting. Now I have to buy high end climbing rope and even with that climbers and cavers are warning about ‘Look-a-Like’ Chinese crap rope that uses the same patterns.

          I used to buy my harnes/tack fittings from MAST. They made a lot of their own snaps and buckles but OSHA/EPA drove them out of business. Now Weaver sells Chinese crap that breaks or doesn’t work. Heck I have a bandaid on my thumb from where I sliced it open on a snap with a very sharp bit of flashing.

          I really really had Chinese made junk.

Cotton yarns were just lovely as they moved through your hands, as were the wools. Today’s stuff from overseas would make better rope.

        A few Americans, corporate and political, got very rich selling out America to China. The know-how, unique skills, and entrepreneurial methods were sent free to China, at the threat of non-payment of wages to the Americans that were forced to educate the Chinese.
        Washington still has politicians, paid with dirty money, to remain blind, deaf, and mute to what has happened, even to this day.
        It is a great CRIME. And no one has yet paid the price for this treason. Yes, treason- the weakening of America, while building up an enemy.

        Backwoodsgirl, this is the first time I have seen this discussed, but it is SO true. Artisans and craftspeople have been severely impacted. I earned a living from my mosaic craft work and selling mosaic supplies for years but on several occasions was surprised to see my original designs being manufactured in China and offered in the marketplace. Gradually they overtook the lions share of the medium and cheapened its appreciation for the craft. There was no way I could compete with the low prices they offered, as it wouldn’t cover materials or my labor.

They sewed the braids together into large oval coils & those floor coverings were virtually indestructible. I think there are also a couple of patchwork quilts lying around that have historical clothing as their basis–true family treasures & representative of a virtual lost art–& time…

            I hate to tell you fleporeblog but Reagan was the start thanks to his allowing the Hostile Takeover/Leveraged Buyout feeding frenzy that wiped out our AMERICAN OWNED DEBT FREE midsize companies.
            …..
            “…A leveraged buyout (or LBO, or highly-leveraged transaction (HLT), or “bootstrap” transaction) occurs when an investor, typically financial sponsor, acquires a controlling interest in a company’s equity and where a significant percentage of the purchase price is financed through leverage (borrowing). The assets of the acquired company are used as collateral for the borrowed capital, sometimes with assets of the acquiring company. Typically, leveraged buyout uses a combination of various debt instruments from bank and debt capital markets…

            The leveraged buyout boom of the 1980s was conceived by a number of corporate financiers, most notably Jerome Kohlberg, Jr. and later his protégé Henry Kravis. Working for Bear Stearns at the time, Kohlberg and Kravis, along with Kravis’ cousin George Roberts, began a series of what they described as “bootstrap” investments…” — WIKI Leveraged_buyout

            Where the heck was CONGRESS. Where the heck were the COURTS when this was going on???
            “…Both economic and regulatory factors combined to spur the explosion in large takeovers and, in turn, large LBOs. The three regulatory factors were the Reagan administration’s relatively laissez-faire policies on antitrust and securities laws, which allowed mergers the government would have challenged in earlier years; the 1982 Supreme Court decision striking down state antitakeover laws (which were resurrected with great effectiveness in the late eighties); and deregulation of many industries, which prompted restructurings and mergers. The main economic factor was the development of the original-issue high-yield debt instrument. The so-called “junk bond” innovation, pioneered by Michael Milken of Drexel Burnham, provided many hostile bidders and LBO firms with the enormous amounts of capital needed to finance multi-billion-dollar deals….” http://www.econlib.org/library/Enc1/TakeoversandLeveragedBuyouts.html

            So what did the US government do about this highly unethical practices???
            ..In January 1982, former US Secretary of the Treasury William Simon and a group of investors acquired Gibson Greetings, a producer of greeting cards, for $80 million, of which only $1 million was rumored to have been contributed by the investors. By mid-1983, just sixteen months after the original deal, Gibson completed a $290 million IPO and Simon made approximately $66 million.[9] The success of the Gibson Greetings investment attracted the attention of the wider media to the nascent boom in leveraged buyouts.[10] Between 1979 and 1989, it was estimated that there were over 2,000 leveraged buyouts valued in excess of $250 billion…..— WIKI
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leveraged_buyout [/ex]

            A US Secretary of the Treasury started the sellout of our economy. Reagan through his laissez faire attitude did nothing to stop it.

            Without intervention greed took over.
            “Corporate takeovers became a prominent feature of the American business landscape during the seventies and eighties. A hostile takeover usually involves a public tender offer—a public offer of a specific price, usually at a substantial premium over the prevailing market price, good for a limited period, for a substantial percentage of the target firm’s stock. Unlike a merger, which requires the approval of the target firm’s board of directors as well as voting approval of the stockholders, a tender offer can provide voting control to the bidding firm without the approval of the target’s management and directors…..

            Because it allows bidders to seek control directly from shareholders—by going “over the heads” of target management—the tender offer is the most powerful weapon available to the hostile bidder. … Although hostile bidders still need a formal merger to gain total control of the target’s assets, this is easily accomplished once the bidder has purchased a majority of voting stock.

            Hostile tender offers have been around for decades, but they were rare and generally involved small target firms until the midseventies. Then came the highly controversial multibillion-dollar hostile takeovers of very recognizable public companies. By the late eighties there were dozens of multi-billion-dollar takeovers and their cousins, leveraged buyouts (LBOs). The largest acquisition ever was the $25 billion buyout of RJR Nabisco by Kolberg Kravis and Roberts in 1989. [Editor’s note: this was written in 1992.] …. (wwwDOT)econlib.org/library/Enc1/TakeoversandLeveragedBuyouts.html

            This is the result of the 1980’s leveraged buyout feeding frenzy.

            “Of mergers and acquisitions each costing $1 million or more, there were just 10 in 1970; in 1980, there were 94; in 1986, there were 346. A third of such deals in the 1980’s were hostile. The 1980’s also saw a wave of giant leveraged buyouts. Mergers, acquisitions and L.B.O.’s, which had accounted for less than 5 percent of the profits of Wall Street brokerage houses in 1978, ballooned into an estimated 50 percent of profits by 1988…

            THROUGH ALL THIS, THE HISTORIC RELATIONSHIP between product and paper has been turned upside down. Investment bankers no longer think of themselves as working for the corporations with which they do business. These days, corporations seem to exist for the investment bankers…. In fact, investment banks are replacing the publicly held industrial corporations as the largest and most powerful economic institutions in America….

            THERE ARE SIGNS THAT A VICIOUS spiral has begun, as each corporate player seeks to improve its standard of living at the expense of another’s.

            Corporate raiders transfer to themselves, and other shareholders, part of the income of employees by forcing the latter to agree to lower wages.”

I was always a dedicated buyer of second-hand books and then when I just got too many, running out of space, would take them back to the second-hand book stores or donate them to the local library’s book sale.

        Use your local library. If they don’t offer the book you are interested in, fill out their request form to have the library purchase it. It also helps educate those libbie librarians. I don’t use Kindle downloads much because I do most of my reading before bed and electronic screens give me insomnia.

          soozword, the ironic thing is that the author prefaced the Kindle version by extolling the benefits of publishing in that format – starting off with the fact that you don’t have to go out in your car to get it plus no use of paper, ink, binding.

          It occurs to me that he seems oblivious the erasure of an entire industry but of course in his type of work, he probably feels that his prospects are unaffected by the demise of everything connected to the industry of book-printing in America.

          I am complicit as well, using my Kindle – but libraries aren’t what they used to be (they aren’t even quiet, no discipline) – it gets me so upset to go to libraries anymore (though I did go to a knitting group last year).

    Trump didn’t start the trade war with China- it’s been ongoing for a very long time. Trump just called them out and is attempting to do something about it.
