BIG PICTURE – Bottom Line: Justin and Chrystia Decided To Play Left-Wing Politics With The Canadian Economy…

The G7 outcome was politically important to left-wing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.  In the days leading up to the summit, their leftist political ideology took a hit when Doug Ford’s conservative movement won in the Ontario Province.   Trudeau and Chrystia needed a G7 win.

As a consequence, Justin from Canada needed U.S. President Trump to sign-on to the G7 communique, giving the summit the appearance of influence and success.

The win was needed for domestic political consumption; however, there were/are massive trade issues as an outcome of NAFTA and both Canada and Mexico structuring their economies as pass-through manufacturers of Chinese, Asian and European goods to gain access to the coveted U.S. Market.

Team Justin/Chrystia played the “ally card” diplomatically requesting G7 support. Team Trump was willing to give Team Justin/Chrystia the optics of a political win in the G7 communique as a diplomatic showing of ‘good faith‘, and set aside the larger conflict of the trade dispute for another day.  However, moments after they achieved the needed validity, after gaining the U.S. G7 support, Justin/Chrystia dropped the diplomatic approach and went back to public political trade antagonism and confrontation.

That’s the ‘stab-in-the-back’ aspect.

For months Chrystia and Justin have been playing politics with their U.S., Mexico and Canada (NAFTA) trade negotiations.  Chrystia and Justin traveling all over the U.S., meeting with liberal comrades and lobbying Washington DC politicians.

Justin and Chrystia were/are counting on their allies in the globalist, Wall Street, multinational corporate community -including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce- to align with their economic needs and stand in opposition to President Trump and Team U.S.A.

They really don’t have a choice.

In the past 25 years all manufacturing and investment into Mexico and Canada has been reliant on their position to exploit the NAFTA loophole; the backdoor access to the U.S. market. If Trump shuts down that loophole, and brings the manufacturing and assembly back to the U.S., investment North and South of the U.S. border will drop exponentially and the Canadian and Mexican economies will likely shrink rapidly.

Overlaying this economic threat is politics.  President Trump is an economic nationalist, who understands -with great specificity- how U.S. market access has been exploited to enrich multiple nations not just Mexico and Canada.  Trudeau and Chrystia are economic globalists; parasites who have an inherent outlook that is not about doing the harder work of establishing self-sufficient economic models, but rather exploiting opportunities to take advantage of positioning.  In essence: conservatism -vs- liberalism.

To retain their political place they must remove the threat to their constructs.  President Trrump is an existential threat to the EU, Canada and Mexican economic schemes.  There are trillions of dollars at stake.  Thus Chrystia Freeland and the EU Trade Commissioner Cecelia Malström call themselves “sisters in trade“.   The only weapon they have to use against President Trump is politics.  That approach is why all retaliatory measures on tariffs pour through the primary filter of politics.

Do you remember the list of items the dynamic duo Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland selected as targets for their counter-tariff position? Check it out here. What do: “felt pens”, “rubber boats”, “orange juice” and “tomato ketchup” have to do with the U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs?  See The Answer HERE.  In short, “politics”.

Using politics as a weapon is the primary counter strategy of Justin and Chrystia.  The use of politics to attack U.S. President Trump is a deliberate strategy, and by taking that approach they find ideological allies, who also have a financial self-preservation interest, around the world.  Diminishing President Trump at every opportunity, and leveraging the ideological support of the left-wing media, is part of that strategy.

That’s what happened in Charlevoix, Canada at the G7.  Team Trump was lured into an Machiavellian political trap to give enhanced authenticity to Justin and Chrystia.  President Trump’s team members entered into the discussion in good faith; however once Justin and Chrystia had what they needed, their larger objective of destroying the threat went back to work.

I have no doubt, President Trump knew the G7 scheme was all a ruse from the outset.

However, I also have no doubt Larry Kudlow did not know.  Kudlow, still new to understanding who the real American enemies are, convinced President Trump the Canadian team was operating on good faith.  Likely President Trump knew the exact opposite was true, but this was also an opportunity for Kudlow to learn who the enemy is; so Trump went along with it….  Now you understand this. WATCH:

.

And this:

.

National Economic Council Chairman Larry Kudlow is a wonk, an academic, a Wall Street media voice; comfortable amid the cocktail party circuit. He’s not a killer.

Kudlow has never been a killer; he’s never had to engage with the apex predators in billion-dollar-business who will tear your family apart limb-from-limb, while you watch, simply because they can.

Larry Kudlow has no concept of how to apply the dark arts in negotiation; or how to spot that where he is standing today is specifically because events that took place three weeks ago – were constructed by predators who knew how to game them out, and draw him in.

POTUS Trump has lived a life amid the apex predators; he was almost destroyed by many of the “killers”. Wilbur Ross is a killer; Kudlow is not.

Justin and Chrystia played Kudlow.

Justin and Chrystia are now going to meet Wilbur Ross.

It will be slow.

It will be painful.

It will be unrelenting torture….

It will be delivered with a deliberateness few can stomach.

Old School.

Oh yeah, and fyi…

NAFTA is dead.

      This is reason number 10,782 why you let the professionals handle things of importance. When you have all of these race car drivers, and their support teams, and the time and effort and money they put into it, the LEAST you can do as the event sponsor / coordinator is NOT SCREW UP the FINISH because you thought it would be a cute idea to have Bambi wave the checkered flag.

      I have no idea what world these people live in.

      In the world where I grew up, the person responsible for that decision would never work in auto racing again. Neither would his boss, or his boss.

      None of them.

      They’re finished.

      You don’t get to screw up like that and get a second chance.

    Somehow, I think the US position has been thought out in depth. With various levels of response at the ready. It’s just a matter of choosing the appropriate response plan from the file drawer of options already written and prepared. You move your knight to F3 and you have a planned response. Like the Pentagon, there have been plans drawn up to deal with almost any eventuality. They knew this was going to be difficult and hard for our trade partners to understand at first. But the game has changed, the opposition is playing a whole new skill level and the objectives have radically changed. The opposition hasn’t figured it out yet. This takes some time and patience. But don’t think for a second that anyone has forgotten that sparkle socks have stepped in it big time. So the question becomes, how hard do you hit back. You want a measured response but you want them to get the message at the same time. If this was the Italian Mafia you would knock them down and stand on their throat. But Canada is an ally, albeit a small one, still, there is a long history there. Maybe you just thump them upside the head and then extend a hand to pick them up off the ground afterward? Oy, mate have a beer, eh. Now you sure wanna try that again?

      Remember, Canada was the destination for thousands of loyalists/Tories who opposed the Patriot rebellion against King George III. They were driven from the 13 colonies as a result. Later, Canadians participated in the burning of Washington DC, in the War of 1812.They still swear allegiance to the British Crown. We put up with their crap precisely because they are so damned inconsequential. Now is the time to show them just how more inconsequential they will become under that Quebecois faggot/drama teacher.

      You only do that if you hate the people of Canadia.

      If you love the people of Canadia, then you drop the hammer on the criminals leading the Canadian government.

      You expose them all, so that they can’t go out in public without fearing for their lives.

      That gives the Canadian People the opportunity to start over, to eradicate the globalist corruptocrats with righteous fury that none of the Leftist/globalist sycophants and apologists can withstand.

      In other words, you don’t destroy Canadia.

      You destroy the Canadian ‘ruling class’, and set the captives free.

      This situation is one of the average American tax payer has grown tired of getting screwed by the New World Order left wing nomenklatura. The U.S. debt has risen to ridiculous levels supporting bad policy funded by borrowing rather than tax hikes which would have voter consequences. The Trump ‘revolution’ is simply that of the average voter waking up to the fact that there are no other options and time is running out. This is also true in Britain, Italy and elsewhere. The New World Order media/entertainment industies are in hyper drive trying to convince the fence sitters to cut their own economic throats by voting Democrat and RINOs back in and throw Trump out.

    Kudlow may not be a killer, but I like him. There are only so many talented, highly-qualified killers out there, so it’s unlikely every single spot on the administration can be filled by one. So I think the next best thing is to have someone who’s loyal and passionate… and Kudlow seems to be that, at least. I loved that he seemed genuinely angry at how Trudeau treated Trump, and how he basically back-stabbed both Trump AND him (Kudlow).

    And I REALLY liked that he admitted that the back-stabbing was even more serious considering it was coming right on the eve of the Korean Summit. A meeting which — I’m talking to you, Justin from Canada — is FAR more important than your stupid little Tariff Tantrum.

      Kudlow has a calming voice to me, the voice of a teacher. The problem is the student doesn’t want to learn the lesson. I think he is doing great as an interface to the media, probably better than one-on-one with the trade wonks in the G7.

      And what just occurred to me is, maybe that is his role. When you negotiate, you don’t send the media guy, who worked for the federal reserve and the office of OMB 20 years go. Think in terms of the executives, Larry is the idea guy who sets the tone, and he has teams of people working out the details to make sure that we all don’t get screwed in the process. There are specialized lawyers and economics who do that.

    • Absolutely. A killer would be easily labeled by the press as “mean spirited”. Larry’s emotional reaction and pounding the desk in frustration draws the media right in, they want to hear more and the camera keeps rolling as he refers to his boss as POTUS over and over again. Nice.

    My take on it, considering we have a genius, who, per Sundance, he knew….

    * POTUS knew Kudlow was being played,
    * POTUS knew baby Trudeau would screw up, allowing him to not execute Communique and lead to ending NAFTA, once and for all.
    *Trudeau is blamed for everything, weakening him politically, which the Ford victory just did
    * POTUS shames Trudeau in tweets en route to Singapore
    * Kudlow does clean up on Canadian aisle, all day on Sunday
    * POTUS lands in Singapore
    * 12 hrs before face-to-face meeting w/Trump, Kimmy is glued to tv, watching all things Trump v Trudeau

    I think POTUS plan was well played. No matter how the plan played out, he had the winning hand. He had 2 days of good interaction with G7s, but they know not to mess with him. G7s will blame Trudeau too.

    As for Kudlow, I like him. He was just being the person he is, and by nature just happened to be the right person for the job at hand — both hands actually. Played into Canadians’ hand and Trumps’ as the anticipated outcome put POTUS in a very strong stance as he walks in the room to meet Kimmy.

    Well played POTUS!

    Peter Navarro says ‘there’s a special place in hell’ for Justin Trudeau

    Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to President Donald Trump, escalated the White House’s rebuke of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him weak and dishonest on Sunday.
    “There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said on “Fox News Sunday.”
    He continued, “And that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One.”

    On Sunday night President Trump continued to take swipes at the globalists.

    President Trump: Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%.

    Then Justin acts hurt when called out! Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay? Not fair to the PEOPLE of America! $800 Billion Trade Deficit…

    And add to that the fact that the U.S. pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!). The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military!…

    Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense? We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. Change is coming!

  17. Later on, the Italian Foreign Affairs minister Federica Mogherini and other Italian authorities,[6][7] along with the EastWest Institute board member Wolfgang Ischinger,[8] suggested that Russia may restore its membership in the group. In April 2015, the German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said that Russia would be welcomed to return to G8 provided the Minsk Protocol was implemented.[9] In 2016, he added that “none of the major international conflicts can be solved without Russia”, and the G7 countries will consider Russia’s return to the group in 2017. The same year, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe called for Russia’s return to G8, stating that Russia’s involvement is “crucial to tackling multiple crises in the Middle East”.[10] In January 2017, the Italian foreign minister Angelino Alfano said that Italy hopes for “resuming the G8 format with Russia and ending the atmosphere of the Cold War”.[11] On 13 January 2017, Russia announced that it would permanently leave the G8 grouping.[27] Nonetheless, Christian Lindner, the leader of Free Democratic Party of Germany and member of the Bundestag, said that Putin should be “asked to join the table of the G7” so that one could “talk with him and not about him”, and “we cannot make all things dependent on the situation in Crimea”.[12] In April 2018, the German politicians and members of the Bundestag Sahra Wagenknecht and Alexander Graf Lambsdorff said that Russia should be invited back to the group and attend the 2018 summit in Canada: “Russia should again be at the table during the [June] summit at the latest” because “peace in Europe and also in the Middle East is only possible with Russia”.[13][14] The President of US Donald Trump also stated that Russia should be returned to G8; his appeal was supported by the Prime Minister of Italy Giuseppe Conte.[15]
