      This is a HUGE win for our country! I LOVE when the Wilburine decided to slap around Maria’s talking point about if the Democrats win the House and say no to this new deal and state that they would rather keep NAFTA. Our Wilburine shared exactly what I have been saying. Our President can terminate NAFTA with a stroke of the pen (about 7:30 in the video). I so badly wanted our President to answer the MSM earlier today by saying the same thing. Maybe he is leaving that incredible news for his rally in TN this evening.

      Canada played a game of Russian Roulette with 5 bullets in a 6 gun chamber. When AMLO told Justin on Friday that Mexico would be the first to terminate NAFTA and move forward with the bilateral deal with our country, they put the 6th bullet into the final chamber. Justin was screwed and our President and his Killers decided to have him pull the trigger and join the deal.

        As for the other BS she was pushing about the 4th Quarter, the Atlanta Federal Reserve just revised their 3rd Quarter real GDP rate from 3.6% to 4.1%.

          Flep – I’ve listened to her in this interview and may I offer an observation? (well I will anyway 🙂 )

          I’ve been thinking that Maria was still being of Globalist mindset and not fully “getting it.” I think I’ve been wrong for awhile.

          I think Maria is asking those “pushback” questions to represent the naysayers and the opposition’s typical complaints. When Wilbur replies smartly, she remarks “Ok,” “uh-huh”, “right”, but does not dispute or push back further. She accepts his answers.

          IMHO she just may well be deliberately setting him up with “soft lobs” so that he can knock them out of the park. What do you think?

        So many of us are so hopeful and trusting of our new President and his quite stunning cabinet, we try desperately to understand what they are trying to explain, but without a way to do so. I wish White House would provide a learning channel option with complete layman ready explanations or primarys. Marie is not up to the job. Her idea of asking a question to help listeners get what is happening? Does Wilber expect push back from the left! No thanks Maria. Don’t care. Maybe ask him to write a book or nationally available text or explanation. Having any explanation filtered through television people is useless.


  2. Stunning work, I can’t wait to see the rest of the details.

    My hero, Secretary Ross – when I need to understand the particulars of what is happening – he is like the ‘Professor in the Room’ who can explain what others either cannot articulate or break down into substantiative parts – from a Secretary Ross interview – we cannot help but, emerge more knowledgeable than we were before he began to speak – Love this guy!

    SD, thanks for posting. Maria is a bit early for us deplorables on the leftist coast. Great interview.

      I don’t see what people get excited about Maria. He voice and accent drives me up a wall. Plus, I don’t see her as being all that bright.


      • Ditch Mitch says:

        Her morning show is subordinate to FBN so it is not so good. Maria’s 1 on 1 interviews are quite different. Maria is always well prepared knowing the subject matter and associated material and asks good questions. Maria asks good followup questions which is the best way for me to evaluate an interview.

        Her voice is a bit on the harsh edge but she moves her program along on a fast pace and packs a lot in. She interviews well; doesn’t usually interrupt too much, and accepts good informative answers without all the “but. but… but..” that we get on the other shows and networks.

        And she is easy on the eyes, but I’m a guy so I’m biased….. 🙂

    Maria didn’t sound enthusiastic about the new agreement in this segment, in my opinion. I know she is against tariffs but come on, show a bit of support.
    Mr. Ross was magnificent and unperturbed as usual.

      What a PERFECT description of him! “Unperturbed”. You capture it! Cannot imagine him ever getting as flustered as Larry Kudlow did, or as passion as Mick can become, but that is his magic!


  7. Jesse says:

    Wilbur Ross is a national treasure. I remember the teens a few years ago saying something to the affect of “Like a Boss.” This saying should be “Like a Ross.” If someone wants to make shirts with his picture and the saying “Like a Ross” on it, I’d but them.

    MSNBC talking heads were (of course) pooh-poohing this deal, saying “it’s basically what TPP would have been”. Riiiiight… because having dispute mechanisms with 2 adjacent countries is exactly the same as having unelected dispute courts with half of the world… NOT. The media buffoons haven’t read one sentence of the deal. They just start spouting off to try to hurt Trump.

      If success makes you prideful, and failure makes you humble…

      Why is BO, with his nose in the air, still out in the world working
      to convince world leaders to subvert President Trump’s stunning success?

      Are you watching John Kerry?

      A liberal economist? Didn’t know there were such critters…

      I figured Liberal economics consisted of “I can do x, y, and z for you. Just give me the money. All of it.”

  24. leftnomore says:

    Trump has checkmated the Dems with this move. As Wilbur said, just try and campaign against the USMCA. When the Rs in upcoming debates challenge their D adversaries as to how they’ll vote on it, the Ds will be boxed into giving a delightful response. If yes, they’ll be ostracized from the party. If no, they’re opposing the economy. Brilliant move DT.
