      America gave so much of their treasure (in blood and money) to the world this past century and the world did their best to take advantage and not try to balance the books. Most countries can go to hell for the misery they have caused so many Americans and their families. And, of course, too many Americans helped that rape of our industry/manufacturing.

      He really is and every new interview is better than the last! He is absolutely growing right in front of the cameras 🎥. I love how he is always highlighting our President multiple times in an interview. I admire that about him.

    China’s going to have to learn to live with a balanced Yin/Yang at the midpoint. President Trump will show them how.

  6. Looking at the 301 report on China, two things stand out:
    1st the list of companies and products is HUGE.
    2nd These words;
    The Trade Representative shall take all appropriate and feasible action authorized under [Section 301(c)], subject to the specific direction, if any, of the President regarding any such action, and all other appropriate and feasible action within the power of the President that the President may direct the Trade Representative to take under this subsection, to obtain the elimination of that act, policy, or practice.

    Actions specifically authorized under Section 301(c) include: (i) suspending, withdrawing or preventing the application of benefits of trade agreement concessions; (ii) imposing duties, fees, or other import restrictions on the goods or services of the foreign country for such time as deemed appropriate; (iii) withdrawing or suspending preferential duty treatment under a preference program; (iv) entering into binding agreements that commit the foreign country to eliminate or phase out the offending conduct or to provide compensatory trade benefits; or (v) restricting or denying the issuance of service sector authorizations, which are federal permits or other authorizations needed to supply services in some sectors in the United States.8 In addition to these specifically enumerated actions, the USTR may take any actions that are “within the President’s power with respect to trade in goods or services, or with respect to any other area of pertinent relations with the foreign country.”9

    “In addition to these specifically enumerated actions, the USTR may take any actions that are “within the President’s power with respect to trade in goods or services, or with respect to any other area of pertinent relations with the foreign country.”

    A trade agreement that puts AMERICAN interests first and gives our USTR the power to do something about the cheaters and loopholes in all prior arrangements.

    Final estimate for GDP growth hit 2.9 percent for 4Q 2017. That’s before the tax cuts. That’s before the trade renegotiations.

    From website Law360:

    “Law360 (March 28, 2018, 4:39 PM EDT) — A U.S. Department of Justice watchdog announced Wednesday it will investigate whether the DOJ and FBI complied with legal and policy requirements in relation to their contentious Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court application to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

    The DOJ Office of the Inspector General, after requests from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and members of Congress, will launch a probe into whether the agencies followed both the law and their own policies and procedures as part of an FISC application…”

    The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) inspector general formally announced Wednesday that he will launch a separate investigation into the DOJ’s handling of a surveillance warrant application for former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

    Just watched Peter Navarro obliterate CNN’s Richard Quest
    Very impressive. Navarro seems to be a combination of an economics professor and a street fighter

    Next up, Section 337? The lobbyists and think tanks are already discussing how to modify Section 337 before Pres Trump and Ross/Lighthizer are able to to do anything with Section 337 (CSIS today).
    Too late, one surmises.

    This KORUS moved fast. NAFTA will also pick up speed, soon, methinks. Think any of the Brilliant Ones have yet noticed?
