Justin Trudeau: Tariffs are Only Illegal When U.S. Does It…

Delivering remarks in a post G7 press conference, Prime Minister Justin from Canada outlines his perspective on the summit and takes questions from a pre-selected media audience.  Many of the questions centered around U.S. positions on trade/tariffs and the Canadian/EU position that U.S. tariffs are illegal; whereas Canadian and EU tariffs are quantifiable expressions of magnanimous intellectual superiority and Americans should spend more time thanking them, instead of these feeble efforts to gain trade reciprocity.

The underlying Trudeau trade premise is that the U.S. should be thankful for the products brought into the U.S. market by Canadians and Europeans. And Americans should express their appreciation through unilateral indulgence-fees for friendship.  If President Trump does not agree to continue the cycle of abusive trade policies, the Europeans and Canadians might stop saying they are our closest and most valuable ally.

Here’s The Final Charlevoix G7 Agreement CLICK HERE

In the granular details: •On NAFTA Justin from Canada says a sunset clause on any renegotiated trade deal is a non-starter regardless of time-frame.  If the U.S. intends to reevaluate the outcomes of a trade deal, there can be no trade deal – ever.

According to Trudeau’s economic team, there will never be any new products or services created within industry, ever again.  Accordingly, the world currently has all the products and technology that will ever exist in the life-cycle of human existence; therefore there is no reason to ever plan on a need to renegotiate trade at any duration of trade agreements.

•On the global gender equity initiative, six of the G7 members have agreed to a $3.8 billion fund to create more opportunity for female organisms; and/or for the expanded rights of those who might identify as female organisms in the next generation.  The central beneficiary group of the G7 gender equity initiative will likely be human; however, in the spirit of inclusivity the communique also accepts a building movement within the EU to recognize planetary gender inequality amid all species.

In fairness to the female Salvadorian four-toed sand lizard who might not want to face the horrors of sub-tropical male domination and subsequent impregnation; the U.N. will use a portion of the G6-1 funding to study the sensibilities of trans-gender lizards in the Southern Hemisphere.  The international monetary fund will be responsible for distribution and will use their upper-east-side suites as the temporary conduit until the new international center for gender equality building is finished; [*note the design competition and contractor bidding period has been extended until August 14th, 2021]

•On the horrors of plastics and climate initiatives, the G7 agreement morphed to a recycled G5 as Japan and the United States refused to sign on to the planned planetary elimination of all plastic, petroleum and carbon-based products.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe raised the argument it was impossible for many people to carry enough water from the river, in their cupped bare hands, to take a shower. Germany’s Angela Merkel became quite cross, and pointed out that showers and bathing were already verboten per the 2011 G20 communique and international water-conservation agreement in Finland.

Theresa May rose to support Ms. Merkel and pointed out how the success of the 2011 Finland water-conservation-agreement necessitated and supported accepting increased middle-east immigration.  Less EU bathing means more water.  More water equals happier fish; and many of the most disenfranchised of the pelagic species had their planetary rights trampled for eons by colonial expansionists.

PM May supports correcting those historic abuses, and the U.K. Council on Subterranean Species Initiatives (UK-CSTSI) has been monitoring the sensibilities of North Atlantic cod for almost half-a-decade.  The councils’ work has been a key policy initiative for the elimination of insensitive fish-and-chip shops throughout England and Northern-Ireland.

      I’m sure they had Michael LaVaugn Robinson in mind when they thought about this strange necessity. We also know him by his re-assigned name: Mooch or Michelle Obama – dancing around in ill fitted dresses, heels and boob belts if not in sweat short and T-shirt exiting AF!. Good times 🙂

      This is the dumb shit they dreamed up fleecing the US taxpayers with their many treaties whether it was their con aka climate change, TPP, UN and other related foundations, treaties, organizations et al.

      As Q often said we – US taxpayers – funded every shindig they invented here and abroad giving them fancy names all-the-while knowing it was just a collection of collection plates demanding their handouts for the worlds needs and their own off shore bank accounts.
      Hopefully president Trump will remove all the bloated UN fools living off our tax dollars taking up space in the most expensive real estate in the country. After all they don’t even like us while everything they do and say is contrary to our own interest as a country and people.

      As president Trump so eloquently told these G5 meeting doofuses: The American people have closed their pocket books – no more parasitic free rides and abuse of American taxpayers. If anyone should act contrary to the interest of the American people there are more ways to cut ties that would cause to win us 1,000 of ways in every which way.
      He also mentioned that if the need arises we can shut down trade all together and team up with countries that have likeminded ideas in mind.

      Of course the presidents recommendation that the G7 should include RUSSIA making it G8 triggered a host of snowflakes. Muh Russia again, more collusion by the president with Russia, The Russians are coming….! 🙂

The Federal Gruberment can run printing presses just as well and interest free. Is the interest paid to the privately owned ‘Federal Reserve’ over a $trillion/year yet?

      Every contract has provisions for parties to withdraw, or severence of the contract. Justine obviously doesn’t understand that.

      Contracts, in order to BE contracts, have to have a “meeting of the minds”, meaning ALL parties agree on what the deal is, “mutual consideration” which means all parties GET something, and give something, and terms the parties have to fulfill.

      Everyone getting upset at DJT’s comments on NATO, as well as on Trade, show a total ignorance of basic concepts.

      Nato is a CONTRACTUAL arrangement.
      Each party,agrees to spend 2% of gdp on military, IN EXCHANGE, “an attack against one, is an attack against all”.

      Pretty straight forward, easy to understand. You don’t live up to your end of the bargain, don’t expect me to live up to mine.

    The irony is that what Justin and his Euro friends are soap-boxing over here (no sunset clauses, non-reciprocal tariffs) actually is the U.S. trade model, which our leaders have pushed on our “trading partners” for the past decades, since Clinton/Bush. The “trading system” that Justin and Emmanuel and Angela are trying to hold together is what U.S. has long sold as the “gold standard” to everyone else, which goes about like this: let U.S. capital flood into your country (essentially asset extraction) and, in exchange for that open access to your sovereign treasure, we’ll give you open access to the coveted U.S. consumer market. Trade surplus and jobs for our partners (at the expense of asset ownership), and loss of jobs and wealth concentration for the U.S. The gold standard!

    So there actually was a “bargain” involved — one that enabled global capitalists to extract, horde and protect the world’s resources. The U.S. sacrificed its jobs/middle class. The Americas and Europeans sacrificed their more socialistic heritage. What’s so ironic is that these traditionally more “socialistic” nations are now the ones falling over themselves to protect a very thin tier of global elites at the expense of each country’s citizens.

    Justin *can’t* say the truth. The truth being that yes, Canada has maintained wildly unfair tariffs to try to prop up its social welfare state (so its citizens don’t notice or at least don’t complain that in reality it has slowly been selling off public assets), and that yes everyone does expect American citizens to continue suffering the brunt of these policies — enduring both the loss of jobs and the loss of ownership/equity/control over its own sovereign assets — because that’s the quiet bargain American elites have made with the rest of the world for years. There is now a stateless class of overlords and enterprises that want to keep it this way, and it’s the self-appointed, moralistic Western leaders who are now fighting tooth and nail to protect or perpetuate these parasitic elitists under the conceit of saving the world.

    The hubris is breathtaking.

    Trump seems to have a knack for always pulling the one corner that makes the whole house of cards fall down. Call out the tariff hypocrisy, and the rest of the fragile bargain becomes absurd and untenable.

    The American left — and I mean the sincere ones, the Berniecrats who for too long tried in vain to steer the democrat party, thinking it the only hope — need to get over their Trump derangement and ingrained notions, and start to read world events with clear, unblinking eyes. When you separate the wheat from the chaff, Trump may just be delivering self-determination back to the people and elevating the status and relevance of workers. He may even be a deus ex machina for a lot of what the populist left has labored — and failed — to achieve for years.

    You can’t always get what you, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.

    She then gives another speech at the award ceremony inferring that Trump is a totalitarian who must be stood up to.

Seems clear where her sympathizes lie.
