G7 Negotiates Tariffs….

Remember all those pre-election conversations about Donald Trump, economic leverage, rebalanced economics and our conversations about what getting the “golden ticket” would look like?   Well,….

The look on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s face is priceless.  “Complicated business folks,… complicated business.”

    The US team is trying to forge a trade organization that counterbalances (excludes) China and Abe is fully on board with us. Germany is chafing with other goals in mind, with Macron in his customary position of hiding behind mommy’s skirt. Such telling photos!

      Merkel rhymes with Ferkel, which means baby pig or piglet, in German…

      She’s gonna have to get away from the trough. We’re tired of her, as is probably everyone else. It’s high time someone cut Soros’s strings to her (and others), and sent Soros and his demonic tribe packing.

      Maybe to Russia, for the World Cup. I’m sure Putin would help them to “chill out”.

      Say, in Siberia. Cracking boulders…

    • Are they trying to intimidate POTUS by charging him and keeping him surrounded? Seriously, it won’t work. He has all the dope on all of you especially those who tried to run him out of the election and the office.

        The Twitter comments are revealing. The Left think that this is a win for Merkel et al, that Trump is intimidated by their bluster and the pic shows them in charge. What it looks like to me is Trump saying to Merkel “I’m not buying your shit.” Abe, standing next to him, is saying “He’s not buying your shit. And neither am I. And you know it.”

        Believe you me, the entire world is watching Trump – namely the yearning right thinkers.

        If he delivers MAGA as promised while being considerate of the people with less than favorable governments; they are going to get restless and start demanding restoration of their national character and pride.

        The Japanese and Italians are starting to get it. Koreans too. Funny enough, Russia will make it G8, before some of these globalist fools yield to popular demand.

        Emmanuel will be interesting to watch, because he could actually be on the fence and willing to try different – following Trump. Justin on the other hand is about as mature as a beiber.

      President Trump is doing a MAGNIFICENT job. I could only dream that he would accomplish what he has in such a short time. The theft of American jobs, capital investment, invention/innovation by foreign competitors must END!

      Additionally, we MUST normalize our domestic labor market so that millions of mostly men and young people who have been displaced by offshoring to foreign countries, outsourcing to foreign firms, and visa and immigration in-sourced foreign workers can return to work again at sustainable wages. STEM graduates working part-time for retail and tech companies, as STEM companies pass them over to get more foreign born visa holders, hasn’t made America great.

      In just a few years, we’ll be able to really reform the nasty leftist bias that’s kept down so many who aspire to teach and work in academia. We’ll be able to weed out the post-modern, revisionist, relativist/pluralist fallacies in our education system both K-12th and publicly funded colleges. President Trump will be remembered as one of America’s greatest presidents.

    The Brenton Woods free trade regime that the US established after Work War 2 to secure allies for the Cold War against the USSR is no longer needed. Donal Trumpnis simply the first President to recognize the implication of the Berlin Wall coming down. More importantly, by devoting themselves to fornication rather than procreation, the Europeans have consigned themselves to demographic and economic oblivion. Their attempts to sustain their nations by importing new people from Asia and Africa are only hastening their decline.

    Japan has its own demographic problems as does Korea. However; Jspan has been wise enough to refuse immigration. South Korea has been far morevdiscerning than Europe on immigration but they now recognize the perils. The reconciliation with North Korea will enable South Korea to bolster its demographics and economic base with Koreans.

    In the world of politics you have to place flags in a certain order, you need to show your authority or confidence by how you shake hands or sit with other leaders. Many want to be shown in certain lighting to have that halo look. The nose must be raised to show your superiority. Many Leaders want to stand taller as a sign of strength.

    Only this President could pull off the fact that he is in charge of the situation, while other leaders are staring down on him while he is sitting. No other leader would allow a picture of others standing over, and staring down on them while they sit. The confidence shown by The President makes the ones staring down on him look weak. This President is not a politician he is a man of action, confident in his position, while pursuing diligently what is in the best interest of his country.

      Wonder of wonders. GERexit would be great. (Then I could afford to buy a full tank of gas at once, for one…).

      The unelected bureaucrats in Brussels and Strasbourg (yep, they have TWO HQ’s to maintain, on OUR dimes) make on average €100,000.00 per year, TAX FREE, with the same amount or thereabouts as “spesen” or per diem. Just turning off that spigot would help enormously… And then we could ship all the robbers, rapists, knife-fighters, and “trojan-camel fillers” back from whence they came…

          Exactly: they _are_ pleading and begging, and hoping to intimidate him with their numbers.

          Trump’s seated, indisputably the leader, and the rest are supplicants. Abe’s bored and hoping they’ll hurry it up, Bolton’s entertained, Trudeau’s trying to play it both ways, which is why he’s laughing nervously, and Trump isn’t buying anything Merkel and Macron have to say: No sale, not on your life—no.

    Just as a back drop to all the children gathering at the President’s feet for a lesson in international business, there were some very interesting article at the end of last week in the Euro-Press that EU banks are looking to consolidate because they do not know how to turn a profit and all are holding some pretty worthless “national” paper from several EU members that is near worthless. Plus, Moody’s and other credit raters are set for another round of downgrading EU banks. Wonder if the Euro-G7 folks have a clue about the banking disaster that is looming.

    I wonder, if President Trump will forget about the national security trade or deals that negatively affect the United States? Such as selling Australian and United States Uranium to Uranium One”.

    Will or has Russia sold Australian and United States Uranium to Iran?

    Extract taken from “Aussie Alexander Downer from Spygate Involved in Sale of Australian Uranium to Uranium One”

    What kicked off the Trump-Russia farce was supposedly a drunken discussion between a young Trump volunteer (George Papadopoulos) and Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer. The young American repeated to Downer what he heard from an FBI spy that Russia held a copy of Hillary’s emails. When he told this to Downer, it was somehow relayed to the US.

    Supposedly this is what started the official FBI Trump-Russia investigation. Now we find out that the Aussie involved in the scandal is also involved with the Clinton Foundation and uranium sales to Russia. Also, we now also know that the individuals that created or are part of the Mueller ‘witch hunt’, Rosenstein, Mueller and Wiessmann, were all part of the Uranium One scandal as well.

    Australia would be wise to look into the various nefarious activities of Ambassador Downer. A serious review would no doubt prove beneficial to the ensuring the rule of law ‘down under’.
