Peter Navarro: “Economic Security is National Security” – China Challenges and U.S. Workforce Initiatives…

Hammer it home Pete, keep hammering it home.  “U.S. Economic Security is U.S. National Security”; and by extension global security. Those words were first spoken by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to an international audience at Davos in 2017.

In the almost two years since first proclaimed, President Trump and the economic team have been executing economic policy to hit on this key message.  Trade deals, internal regulatory policy, tax policy, monetary policy, education policy and modern workforce initiatives are all inherently tied together to ensure U.S. National Security.

In the big picture President Trump is earnestly focused on rebuilding the American middle-class because the blue-collar and white-collar middle-class jobs are the heart of the American economic security.  All of these policies are connected to the middle class because it is the middle class that strengthens America.

This is an important conversation.  Learn it, teach it. Spread the importance of it:

          Get rid of the D@MN ACCORD

          ….Do bankers believe that they own the Federal Reserve banks.

          Yes. [100% of the “stock” is owned by the private banks. Also after instigating “the Accord” It was later revealed by testimony of some of the Federal Reserve officials to committees of Congress that the Open Market Committee had held a meeting on August 18 and decided not only to raise the discount rate, but to “go their own way” on the Government longer term bond rate as well, despite what the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the head of the Office of Defense Mobilization might do”….Therefore the Federal Reserve is not answerable to the President or Congress or the electorate, nor even to a government audit or even Congressional funding!…

          In mid-August of 1950, however, the Federal Reserve raised the discount rate and short-term Treasury bills jumped toward 11/2 percent, although there were requests from the Secretary of the Treasury and the President for the System to continue a low-rate policy. It was later revealed by testimony of some of the Federal Reserve officials to committees of Congress that the Open Market Committee had held a meeting on August 18 and decided not only t o raise the discount rate, but to “go their own way” on the Government longer term bond rate as well, despite what the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the head of the Office of Defense Mobilization might do….

          Since the signing of the so-called accord, in March of 1951, this event has been widely interpreted as an understanding, reached between the Treasury and the Federal Reserve, that the Federal Reserve would henceforth be “independent.” It would no longer ” peg Government bond prices. It would raise or lower interest rates as it might see fit, as a means of trying to prevent inflation or deflation. These are understandings which have been grafted onto the accord over the years. Certainly, no such understandings were universal at the time the accord was signed. …. At the end of 1951, then, the Federal Reserve had both self-proclaimed independence, as a result of the accord, and an operational policy which aimed at maximum credit effects through minimum changes in interest rates….. the Federal Reserve people were quite sure that they could do a better job of running the country than the President, and with only slight increases in interest rates. … It then added another string to its bow- the “bills only” policy. …

          Henceforth when the Treasury issued bonds or medium-term securities, it was to dump these issues on the market and watch the natural consequences-first a drop in bond prices, then a gradual recovery as the market absorbed the bonds. Any private rigging or manipulations of the market were to go without interference from the Federal Reserve, as were any speculative booms or panics short of a “disorderly” market. The “bil1s-only” policy had only one reservation: The Federal Reserve would buy long-term bonds in the event that the Open Market Committee made a findings that the market was disorderly.

So what ever the FED decides to, they are still subject to oversight! Probably one reason why Senator Paul was advocating an audit of the FED, it’s way past overdue!

            • If the folks over a ZeroHedge are any indication, at some point there is going to be a debt default by some First World Nation. There is simply too much outstanding debt to allow interest rates to rise and pay of the various national debts that have been accumulating.

              ‘Quantitative Easing’ was simply FedSpeak for massive currency and credit inflation.

              In the US, private debt is almost twice the amount of the National Debt.

              As anyone who has savings or investments knows, there is literally no interest rate available on savings accessible to the average person that even matches the inflation rate, let alone exceeds it. The same is true for virtually any stock or bond available to the average person.

              Here’s the situation as I understand it:

              – If the Fed does not raise interest rates, debt will continue to expand.
              – If the Fed does raise interest rates, default on existing will likely increase.
              – If the Fed does continue to inflate the currency, savings and/or investment will continue to underperform inflation (reducing savings and investment).
              – If the Fed does not inflate, default on existing debt will likely increase.

              Since the Fed represents bankers they are more concerned with debt default than inflation.

              If you want to understand why the Fed is doing what it is doing, its because it has no good options.

      US should negotiate the economic trade and security pact with ASEAN. The ASEAN can help US to contain China on SCS, trade and security… They are too weak and fraction to stand up to China even though they want to and in their national interest. They need a strong leader to guide their collective similar to NATO. That also allows these nations to escape the China’s orbit. It is also serve American economic interest since these countries are far more friendlier to US and US products than China so the reciprocal trade are much better than with China.

      Yes. And along the way — maybe we will get around to some education reforms/initiatives, once several other major projects are out of the way. Technical education is not as accessible to people who cannot do basic math and struggle with reading.

      Immigrant Rudolf Flesch wrote Why Johnny Can’t Read, and What You Can Do About It way back in he 1950s. Flesch analyzed why he had to teach his 12-year-old grandson how to read. Flesch found this a remarkable situation, given that the grandson had no physical problems, and had already attended school for several years.

      Summary: Flesch described how phonics had been removed from his grandson’s instruction; instead of teaching the boy how to read a normal European language the customary way, American teachers were instructing students as if they were teaching Chinese characters (whole words). No idea why this would have begun in the 1950s, but Flesch saw it, and decades later I noticed this as well. My neighbor had to take her second grade daughter to a “reading specialist” to learn how to read (it took about two months after school).

      A reading specialist told me that without phonics instruction, roughly 1/3 of all children will have difficulty learning to read (and she had no idea why phonics had been removed, but that was the way the authorities preferred to do things). Because the eyes of many children may not be mature enough to focus easily on reading at age 5-6, it may be preferable to begin instruction after “change of teeth”, according to some old-fashioned educators. Rushing academic instruction on restless small children is not a great idea. But somewhere before age 9, it’s a good idea if children learn how to read!

        Basic problem #2 is simple math. Because college teaching classes brainwash aspiring teachers against “rote memorization” and claim it “isn’t creative”, many children do not learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide the way many older people learned in primary grades. If you have to add 6 six times in order to get the answer to 6×6=36, it will slow you down and make you feel like a dunce. Rote memorization is good for certain tasks, inappropriate for others, but especially for basic math it is essential to memorize. Just do it.

        Plus, memorizing poems and songs, or learning to recite a joke or story, is very satisfying for most people. Teachers and schools that discourage memorization will slow down their students, whether they end up in technical schools or whatever else

She also thought that languages should be taught in the elementary schools rather than high school for the same reason.

          To me, teaching the kids to read using stories that they are interested in makes a huge difference.
          I have two daughters and a son, spaced two years apart. We taught our oldest daughter, the younger one learned by watching her older sister, and our son picked up by watching the two of them. But, our son was sort of middling along at the beginning of second grade, not struggling, but not outstanding either. Then the Harry Potter books came along. He was VERY interested in those stories, and in reading them, his reading ability took off!
          By the end of the second grade, he was ‘maxing out’ the computerized reading tests in his school classes, reading above the sixth grade level, which was the maximum that the tests were designed for.

      There are other countries out there who are doing a great job at educating their rising generation. Singapore, Finland, and many other countries have remarkable achievements that we can observe and either take up, or not. Despite massive anti-German propaganda since the days of the WWI Creel Commission, German educational systems were some of the best in the world. Germany produced the first “kindergartens”. Werner von Braun (and many of the other rocket scientists who staffed American and Soviet projects) were the product of German school systems. Likewise Albert Einstein, Lise Meitner, Heisenberg and many many others.

    The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies

    In 2015, Amazon.com Inc. began quietly evaluating a startup called Elemental Technologies, a potential acquisition to help with a major expansion of its streaming video service, known today as Amazon Prime Video. Based in Portland, Ore., Elemental made software for compressing massive video files and formatting them for different devices. Its technology had helped stream the Olympic Games online, communicate with the International Space Station, and funnel drone footage to the Central Intelligence Agency. Elemental’s national security contracts weren’t the main reason for the proposed acquisition, but they fit nicely with Amazon’s government businesses, such as the highly secure cloud that Amazon Web Services (AWS) was building for the CIA.

    To help with due diligence, AWS, which was overseeing the prospective acquisition, hired a third-party company to scrutinize Elemental’s security, according to one person familiar with the process. The first pass uncovered troubling issues, prompting AWS to take a closer look at Elemental’s main product: the expensive servers that customers installed in their networks to handle the video compression. These servers were assembled for Elemental by Super Micro Computer Inc., a San Jose-based company (commonly known as Supermicro) that’s also one of the world’s biggest suppliers of server motherboards, the fiberglass-mounted clusters of chips and capacitors that act as the neurons of data centers large and small. In late spring of 2015, Elemental’s staff boxed up several servers and sent them to Ontario, Canada, for the third-party security company to test, the person says.

    Nested on the servers’ motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn’t part of the boards’ original design. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shudder through the intelligence community. Elemental’s servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA’s drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships. And Elemental was just one of hundreds of Supermicro customers.

    During the ensuing top-secret probe, which remains open more than three years later, investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered machines. Multiple people familiar with the matter say investigators found that the chips had been inserted at factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.

    This is too important to wait just now realized why David Laufman of spygate and the russian hoax fame is on Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team : it is to create the presumption of a conflict of interest for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh , so that he may be compelled to recuse himself concerning any matters related to spygate and the russian hoax . Sorry to but in , but this one cannot wait . I sure hope to be proven wrong ….. , but knowing how these characters operate .

    Security & the opportunity to make a living. That’s pretty much the basics of what people want, no matter what what country they live in

    So, I’ll put what I wrote in another thread here, since it fits…

    “Hispanic Unemployment Record Low…
    Manufacturing confidence all-time high…
    16,000 Govt Jobs Cut Since Trump…
    Construction hiring booming — and many available jobs…
    LIST: Cities With Best [And Worst] Markets…
    POLL: PRESIDENT APPROVAL 51%…

    UNEMPLOYMENT LOWEST SINCE 1969

    The above are the upper headlines on the turncoat Drudge Report site

    Putting aside the brainwashed, the stupid, the corrupt & the insane, tell me again why anyone would vote for a democrat?”

    So, what about the news article about Verizon today. Eliminating their American workforce to replace with visa workers that will eventually go offshore?? How is this happening now?

    VP Pence’s speech yesterday at Hudson was the kick-off to this strategy. Will not re-detail it again, but it was special. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeVrMniBjSc

    Today’s economics was tied to the release of the Pentagon report. Meanwhile, today VP Pence was loudly denounced by the Chinese as a propagandist. Meh. Who cares?

    Meanwhile, our U.S. Navy has been planning a goodwill tour, beginning next month. Gen (R) Jack Keane – “The Chinese will attack us every way but militarily. The Chinese will not take us on militarily.”

    Gosh, it is nice to have competent people running our government again, people who truly see the real whole-of-government approach, rather than just talking about it.. We sleep peacefully again.

      I hope that our military has been quietly replacing the spy boards with clean ones. All those ship collisions etc are worrisome.

        There’s another way. Just create a firmware upgrade to divert control of the rogue chip to us. IOW, when the chip thinks it is calling home to China, it is calling home to the Pentagon. And getting its marching orders there. It could even be reprogrammed to spy on China. Lots of different countermeasures are possible.

    So, what is China to do? The Chicom system, built on corruption, and therefore cheapest practices, and bereft of innovative thought, can NOT compete on an equal footing.

    And yet, as the coaltion of the willing confronts them on trade, they will be forced to TRY to compete os said equal footing.

    THIS, ultimately, is why we are in an EXISTENTIAL battle; because China, as it is now, cannot survive this challenge, anymore than USSR could survive a similar challenge.

    And, since dems, thru Clintons, have been corrupted by China, it is an EXISTENTIAL threat to dems, as well. This explains their extream TDS behavior; they see it as fight to the death, if for their sponsor, than for them as well.

    “. . . President Trump is earnestly focused on rebuilding the American middle-class because the blue-collar and white-collar middle-class jobs are the heart of the American economic security”

    We should always keep in mind that an unstated goal of globalists is the impoverishment of America’s blue-collar and middle class workers. One-world—aka “New World Order”—dogma
    sees a necessary reduction of national wealth of 1st world countries so that wages and net-worth becomes rationalized: globalism wants American workers and workers in India to earn approximately the same thing so that there will be one vast world marketplace—dominated, of course, by big business. During the campaign, Trump recognized this and spoke to it when he talked about all the closed factories and our-of-work skilled labor in rust-belt cities. This is why he wants to rebuild America. Globalism such big time.

    Andrew Jackson had it right– anyone researching the origins of America’s central bank, aka the Federal Reserve, in 1913 will find a literal Wall Street conspiracy orchestrated by California Senator and Wilson’s son-in-law William McAdoo, right down to nefarious meetings in corrupt Deep South venues colluding with Dixiecrat Senators to arbitrage manipulated interest rates to personal advantage.

    Having banned gold exports in 1917, effectively repudiating U.S. Dollar backing, FDR’s “pump-priming” Keynesians deflated not monetary values but national growth prospects, prolonging the so-called Great Depression for eight years while blasting “capitalists” as Progressives’ (sic) hobgoblin “Merchants of Death”, wartime profiteers opposing something-for-nothing/spread-the-wealth measures designed explicitly to foster private-sector dependency on Big Gummint largesse.

    If this puissant Administration seriously intends to lock in Trump Prosperity, radical returns to pre-Wilsonian measures are imperative: Abolish the patently unconstitutional Federal Reserve; repeal Wilson’s collectivist/Statist Amendments XVI and XVII; geographically as well as organizationally decentralize the Deep State’s subversive administrative/regulatory Fourth Branch; and enact Amendments XXVIII et seq. entailing Supreme Court comeuppance (no super-Legislature here!); a county vs. Statewide Electoral College; gerrymander sanctions (“compact, contiguous, equal in population, stable over time”); truly democratic (“jury pool” type private citizens) vs. bloc partisan Congressional and Judiciary self-selection and term limits; above all, a Unit Allocation Budget (UAB) process removing Congress’ ridiculous blank-check prerogative while reversing tax-and-spend political incentives on all fronts.

    As the Founders showed, these common-sense, consent-of-the governed provisions can be encompassed in just a few short paragraphs, intelligible to all. Communo-fascist Rats aside, “progress” occurs not via a seditious, sub rosa commissariat but by carefully enumerated commission, omission and default. Hamiltonian incentives to a free society are nor complicated, but interacting incentives are subtle in extreme.

    It is hard for the totalitarian left to foment revolt and establish a dictatorship when there is 1) a large economically viable, vocal and educated middle class and 2) that middle class if armed. Hence: The left’s ongoing drive to eliminate the Second Amendment.
