      Yes, Sixblade…there has been a trade war going on all along.
      Wilbur Ross and our President have been trying to tell people this.

      We just finally have a President who is fighting back for us.

      I think China has been waging a real war for decades. Subversion rampant and blatant under WJ Clnton with the W88s etc to Muh Russia, US libtards driving Putin into China;s arms at a discount..,. Probably the Bushes too, Never forget that GHWB was the first American official off the plane, welcomed into Mao’s China and can’t remember where he was 11-22-63..

      People forget the rules of 2008-2010–the casino always wins. Back then Bernanke’s ramp capitol came in at 3:40 every now and then and saved the day, so you could sit in the market until the next open if you wanted to stay up and watch the futures all night. Now, Zombie HFTs are going to eat them to the bone on every buy no matter what they do.

      Physical real estate was/is the new e-trade platform but the great MERS deals are long gone. Their reaction to the Main Street evolution is gonna be interesting for sure.

      The market is completely open to manipulations which will cause falls and rises: anyone who thinks that anti-Trump/anti-American forces do not have the power to cause temporary crashes and “irrational” peaks in the stock market has not been paying attention.

      During MAObama’s years, practically daily, around 3:00-3:30 P.M. massive buying would occur to bring up the market if it had fallen too much for comfort.

      From 18 months ago:

      Quote:

      The Federal Reserve, with its bargain-basement interest rates and money printer always on standby, is *manipulating financial markets and crushing capitalism,* bond king Bill Gross said in his latest broadside against the U.S. central bank.

      In a letter to clients, Gross addresses Fed Chair Janet Yellen directly, saying the policies she has pushed “have deferred long-term pain for the benefit of short-term gain.”

      The criticisms come as the Fed is weighing whether to raise interest rates after years of keeping them anchored in efforts to stimulate the economy and create inflation. Instead, Gross said, the Fed has merely inflated asset prices while actually harming the economy.

      Yellen and other global central bankers “all have mastered *the art of market manipulation* and no — that’s not an unkind accusation — it’s one in fact that Ms. Yellen and other central bankers would plead guilty to over a cocktail at Jackson Hole or any other get together of PhD economists who have lost their way,” Gross wrote.

      (My emphasis *…*)

        “The Federal Reserve, with its bargain-basement interest rates and money printer always on standby, is *manipulating financial markets and crushing capitalism,”
        “Yellen and other global central bankers “all have mastered *the art of market manipulation* ”

        You bring up some valid points that are often (deliberatively?) overlooked and disregarded today. Just like several people that “sounded the alarm” in advance of the 2008 too-big-to-fail banking debacle.

        The same thing is happening in that market as what happened to U.S. Industry and manufacturing, you quote here:

        the policies she has pushed “have deferred long-term pain for the benefit of short-term gain.”

        With the policies sundance has meticulously explained to us, US corporations shifted production overseas, decimating good paying domestic jobs for short term increases in productivity. However, with the decline of the well paid positions, fewer and fewer people where able to purchase many of these high quality goods. Instead, the masses were enticed with the flood of cheap consumer goods to placate them while the wealth transfer continued to benefit a few of the “globalist masters”.

        PDJT is reversing this trend with his MAGA agenda and the “globalist masters” want no part of it. These “globalist masters” are the same ones exerting undo influence over our elected leaders in Washington. After PDJT successfully exposes this and turn things around, than “Joe Sixpack” in flyover America will demand changes in Washington so that it does not happen again as soon as PDJT leaves office.

          W/the dumbing down of America, I’m not sure there are enough “Joe Sixpacks” left that will be paying attention. Most people have no idea how the stock mkt works or even what it represents in terms of who owns the corporations and publicly traded businesses.

          There is so much insider trading and manipulation of the mkt. that if it were ever exposed and enforced, the whole ponzi scheme would crash.

          I am invested heavily in the mkt., but am aware of the risks and the schemes.

      Placing too high an expectation on meeting artificially short deadlines only sets us up for disappointment. Considering to what he’s referring, a coalition of many countries that agree in principle with what POTUS is proposing, such a coalition could easily take a week or so even with a focused, intense effort. I think Larry was playing to Wall Street with that answer.

    Boy howdy, the lefties, globalists and all those fighting our magnificent President need a refresher course in vocabulary.

    It’s a wonder they got very far in life without a basic grasp of the English language.

    Even so, anything that sends them into a kerfuffle is all right by me.

    Haters gonna hate.

    As for me and mine, we support Mr. President 1,000 %

      C’mon now. Y’all know why all the histrionics about it – the mere fact that Trump even announced it means – to the stupid media – that he’s absolutely gonna do it!

      Obviously it was announced for Chinese consumption (like, duh, a strong HINT! to motivate them to do something positive about their abuses). The fact that these dumkopfs in the media don’t “get it” and keep their mouths shut is evidence of real shallow and/or subversive thinking.

        Exactly! VSG PDJT is a man of his word and they know it! Says what he means and means what he says. This is a man who seals a deal with a handshake. HIs word is his bond. The media does “get it” they just don’t agree with it.

  10. Obama’s PROMISE Program paid Broward to ignore or hide criminal behavior by Cruz and Treyvon. When the predictable disaster occurred, they tried to blame it on responsible gun owners.

    Similarly, China paid our legislators to ignore and hide bad behavior by China, Inc.. When the predictable economic consequences hurt Americans, they try to blame Trump for responsibly pushing back.

    Of course it feels weird to stand up to China, Inc and their Uni-Party Dolls; it’s never been done.

    Larry Kudlow, of all people, knows and understands how these Poseur Puppets control and manipulate the markets with their words alone.

    Good on Stuart Varney for allowing Mr. Kudlow the opportunity to actually talk. Mr. Kudlow did a fantastic job, imo. That Bloomberg interview was positively deplorable, in every worst case of the word. If interviews like this do not drive up Fox Business viewership, one must question the depths of the stupidity of Wall Street traders.

    How is it that none of these Media Moonies know that Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore spent most of the 2016 campaign working side-by-side with Candidate Trump formulating the strategy for this China confrontation? That this is The Art of the Deal in real-life action?

    What a media coup for this weekend Sunday Talks. These people are stupid. They are so easily controlled by a mere utterance from Pres Trump.
    Once more, America First. How do these people still not get it?
