Panda -vs- Dragon: President Trump Tweets The Dynamic…

Within the dynamic of the U.S -vs- China trade confrontation, CTH noted the Wall Street (globalist) multinationals would likely go bananas.  There are trillions at stake and President Trump is confronting three decades of financial influence from the corporate lobbyists.   To the angst of Wall Street, POTUS Trump tweets the dynamic:

President Trump has been brutally consistent for more than three decades on his intent and purpose with the Chinese.  President Trump is the first U.S. President to understand how the red dragon hides behind the panda mask.

Additionally, while carrying out the objectives of the confrontation, Secretary Mnuchin, Secretary Ross, Ambassador Lighthizer and adviser Navarro are well aware of Beijing’s panda mask; POTUS Trump will never let them forget about it.

Some call it ‘Globalism vs Nationalism’, at other times it is best described as “Wall Street -vs- Main Street”; however, the overarching bigger picture is a battle over economics and the financial power structures that oppose President Trump.

CTH has often said ‘everything is about the economics’, because it is. Ask the ‘why’ question five times to any issue and you will find the root issue is money.  Power, greed and control, it is all about the money and the economics.

Opposition to President Trump’s singularly unique and transformational reset of the U.S. economic system boils down to a battle against the ‘Big Club’.

Every political confrontation is a move within this dynamic. The structural battle is not based on party affiliation, it is based on control and ownership of economics. This confrontation represents the biggest challenge; a brief example:

Hundreds of millions were spent on the 2018 election by owners within the ‘Big Club’; at a surface level those expenditures are discussed by punditry thus: “we were outspent” (insert Kevin McCarthy and/or Ronnda McDaniel here). But if you have followed the challenge more closely, over the course of years/decades, you have a more substantive understanding of the dynamic.

Billionaires on one side of the UniParty spend hundreds-of-millions in opposition to the MAGA agenda. That agenda, that economic agenda, is the existential threat to the Big Club’s grip on power.

Here’s the critical aspect: When it comes to the economics, there are no big spending billionaires on the nationalist side of the equation. The interests of Wall Street Democrats and Wall Street Republicans are based on globalism; Wall Street not Main Street.

In the ‘globalist’ multinational, Wall Street dynamic, the Big Club DNC donor base and the Big Club RNC donor base have mutual self interests.  Within this interest, President Trump is their unified opposition.

The only defeating mechanism that can structurally override this dynamic is an independent Billionaire and a massive amount of tax-paying small donors, ordinary middle-Americans, who can supplement the financial arsenal.   Think back to 2015/2016, and you will see the single-successful-reference for this reality at work.

Everything is about the economics.

The Big Club opposition to President Trump is based on financial best-interest.  That opposition is not bound to a political party ideology.  It is an ideology based on economics.  In essence, this is a structural economic battle that is being waged politically.

Decades of financial policy were intentionally structured to the benefit of the BIG CLUB and the multinational Wall Street alliance represented by U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue.  This is not a Republican -vs- Democrat issue; this is a larger confrontation between those who hold financial power and a singular person, President Donald Trump, who is determined to remove that grip.

In headlines: Big Club board member Alan Greenspan declares that President Trump’s tariff policies are “insane” [link].  This expression by Greenspan is directly representative everything noted above.

However, conversely, the outcome of those MAGA tariff policies are EXACTLY what we said they would be.  The BLS released information quantifying inflation across all sectors (emphasis mine).

Food – The food index declined 0.1 percent in October as the index for food at home fell 0.2 percent and the index for food away from home rose 0.1 percent. Three of the six major grocery store food group indexes declined in October. The fruits and vegetables index fell 0.7 percent in October, its third consecutive decline.

The index for fresh fruits fell 1.8 percent, while the fresh vegetables index increased 0.3 percent. The index for cereals and bakery products fell 0.6 percent, and the index for dairy and related products declined 0.4 percent. (link)

Notice how the prices for food are dropping as the MAGAnomic trade policies of President Trump are being carried out.

Notice how the timing of the decline is directly related to the tariff actions, and the counter-actions, by the targeted countries.

President Trump is fracturing the multinational corporate ‘controlled market’, and his trade policies are beginning to reconstitute supply and demand pricing in a nationalist market.

This inflation data, specifically within the fastest sector to show indicators (most perishable = fastest turnover) highlights what we have been explaining for years:

[…] The biggest lie in modern economics, willingly spread and maintained by corporate media, is that a system of global markets still exists.

It doesn’t.

Every element of global economic trade is controlled and exploited by massive institutions, multinational banks and multinational corporations. Institutions like the World Trade Organization (WTO) and World Bank control trillions of dollars in economic activity. Underneath that economic activity there are people who hold the reigns of power over the outcomes. These individuals and groups are the stakeholders in direct opposition to principles of national economics. (cont.)

The process of charging the U.S. consumer more for a product, that under normal national market conditions would cost less, is a process called exfiltration of wealth.

It is never discussed.

To control the market price some contracted product may even be secured and shipped with the intent to allow it to sit idle (or rot). It’s all about controlling the price and maximizing the profit equation. To gain the same $1 profit a widget multinational might have to sell 20 widgets in El-Salvador (.25¢ each), or two widgets in the U.S. ($2.50/each).

Think of the process like the historic reference of OPEC (Oil Producing Economic Countries). Only in the modern era massive corporations are playing the role of OPEC and it’s not oil being controlled, it’s almost everything, including food.

Yes, President Trump, the man and his policy team, is an existential threat to the elitist hierarchy of things well beyond the borders of the DC Swamp. In the era of explaining the complex it’s a planetary economic reset almost too massive and consequential to encapsulate in words.

There are massive international corporate and financial interests who are inherently at risk from President Trump’s “America-First” economic and trade platform. Believe it or not, President Trump is up against an entire world economic establishment.

      Folks the Chinese over the past three days have seen all of their games destroyed by the Atomic Sledgehammer of Truth with those tweets! Ole Xi will have to decide in the very near future whether he wants to really give in to our demands or whether he wants to destroy his paper economy. He CAN’T have both!

      Our President continues to drive the Dragon 🐉 crazy 😜. Xi knows damn well that since our President finalized the trade deals with Mexico 🇲🇽 and Canada 🇨🇦, China 🇨🇳 will see a reduction of 1% to 2% to their real GDP rate!

      They also know that PDJT is absolutely right when he states the obvious.

      There is a cause and effect to our GDP and theirs. By squeezing them with tariffs of 25% on the first $250 billion on April 1 (since the 90 day window doesn’t commence until January 1st) and 25% on the remaining $267 billion, PDJT is swinging our GDP up and killing China’s GDP.

      Let’s look at the math:

      USA 🇺🇸 Tariffs on China:

      $250 billion x 25% tariffs = $62.5 billion dollars to our Government
      $267 billion x 25% tariffs = $66.75 billion dollars to our Government

      China 🇨🇳 Tariffs on USA:

      $110 billion x 25% tariffs = $27.5 billion dollars to their Government
      $40 billion x (THAT IS ALL THEY HAVE LEFT) 25% tariffs = $10 billion dollars to their Government

      That totals $129.25 billion dollars in tariffs for our Government versus $37.5 billion dollars to their Government.

      That shrinks the trade deficit by $91.75 billion dollars a year.

      What does that mean for each country’s real GDP rate?

      In the 2nd Quarter we shrunk the trade deficit by $52 billion dollars and it added 1.16% to the 4.2% real GDP rate for the 2nd Quarter.

      Our President is absolutely right that WE CAN’T LOSE!

      Xi saw this today and realizes HE CAN’T WIN!

        • The 25% Tariffs on $200 Billion will go into effect on January 1st after all.
        • They’ll be higher unless the CCP has paid American Farmers to cover crop losses, too.

    Put simply, Globalism is Socialism or communism-lite implemented on a global scale. “Free Trade” (as implemented) is redistribution of wealth on a global inter-macro economic scale.

    Note how in the 90’s Alan Greenspan was concerned about paying off the National Debt “too quickly”. Now why on earth would anyone ever be concerned about paying off debt too quickly? What if that debt was never designed to be paid back, and that it in effect was a redistribution of wealth resulting in a permanent tribute paid to its global benefactors by american taxpayers?

    What you need to know about globalism can be summed up by one point – the United States was never intended to be a member of Oil Producing Economic Countries (OPEC) when we have enough energy reserves here to dwarf almost all of the rest of the world.

        I look at it this way; the consistent, accurate criticism of Conmunism/Socialism is;
        It has NEVER worked,
        “anywhere/anytime its been tried! From Jamestown colony, to Venrzuela, it has failed.”

        So, “Globalism” is their attempt at an answer; “If ONLY we had control of EVERYTHING, ….THEN we could make it work. ”

        Which is like the old joke “but, we’ll make it up in VOLUME!” No, all you’ll do is lose a LOT of money; it simply doesn’t WORK!

        However, in ONE sense, they are ‘on to something’; Conmunism/socialim can NEVER compete, on a level playing field, with free market Capitalism.

        Reagan KNEW it, and its how he defeated the Soviet Union.

        And, DJT KNOWS it, and its how he is going to defeat the Chicoms. Conmunism/socialism ruthlessly and ridgidly stamps out innovative thought, as its a threat to the state.

        And, the system of incentives and rewards, OR LACK THEREOF, in C/S systems, insures innefficiency, and poor quality due to rampant corruption.

        So, what they are really angling for, with Globalism is IF there was NO ‘Competition’ from free market capitalist countries, THEN C/S could ‘work’. It STILL wouldn’t work, there just wouldn’t be any altrrnative for comparison.

    • Debt slavery is part of this dynamic as well, because the banks have a monopoly on our money and thus our money is a terrible product because there are no alternatives. Money is created from nothing by borrowing, but interest is demanded in addition to principal, which is the foundation of our ponzi financial system. The debt must continually expand in order for the system to avoid collapse, and that quite simply is the main ‘driving force’ behind the elites desire for global government, global central bank, global fiat currency etc. Its this usurious system that enriches the elites at our expense more than anything else.

        • The ‘free traders’ conflate two different ‘free trade’ regimes: nation and international.

          Adam Smith, et al describe the benefits of national free trade, which is to say, seeking to maximize opportunities for the creation, transport and selling of goods and services within a discrete territory where all activities are governed under the same legal system. Adam Smith used the notion of ‘comparative advantage’ to describe the benefits of a national ‘division of labor’ to increase productivity. In essence, Smith was arguing against ‘generalist’ business practices where the ‘make or buy’ choices almost always resulted in a ‘make’ decision. Thus a business that needed barrels would seek to make their own barrels rather than buy them from a specialist (a barrel-wright).

          Smith, Ricardo and others also advocated for international free trade within the context of ‘comparative advantage’ under the notion that one nation might produce one or more type of goods more ‘efficiently’ than another. Smith/Ricardo used the example of wine and wool between Portugal and England. Portugal’s geography resulted in a good climate for making wine and they could do so more ‘efficiently’ than England. England had a good climate for growing sheep with good wool. Under these (very limited) conditions, Smith/Ricardo argued that since both nations produced both goods then treated as a whole economic unit it would be more ‘efficient’ for England and Portugal to specialise, one producing wool and trading it for wine, the other producing wine and trading it for wool.

          The problems with international free trade are not obvious when considered as a theory but, even within the theory itself, both Smith and Ricardo assumed that when the theory was translated from geographically-fixed goods to manufacturing the underlying situation changed somewhat. However, in their time capital — financial and manufacturing resources — were relatively immobile and they assumed that capital flight to the least-cost nation for manufacturing was not possible.

          However, the immobility of capital has not been true for some time. As a result, the assumed national benefits of international free trade (lower cost of goods and services) is completely nullified (or even overwhelmed) by the adverse effect of capital flight to least-cost nations.

          A least cost nation to which there is a transfer of capital — manufacturing, jobs, experience, skills — can gain an absolute advantage over nations from which capital is taking flight.

          Lastly, in order to mirror the benefits of a single legal system as found in national free trade, international free trade needs to construct an international legal and enforcement system. The WTO is one such system and has, in practice, completely displaced national legal systems when it comes to international trade.

          All transnational trading systems result in some kind of transnational government.

          So, if you don’t like ‘big government’ you can not support international ‘free trade’.

He also doesn’t have any puppet strings holding him to the global powers, he’s free. Maybe that’s why it looks like merkel’s panties are in a twist. She’s not free and never will be. Feel free to include all of the others too.
    Be well and stay smiling,

      They have devoted a life to being pawns of these globalist string-pullers. They love what they do. They don’t like Trump because Trump shows what is really going on.

      It’s not just jealousy. The “Trump effect” is displacing politicians and their parties in several countries with more to come. Voters in France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Argentina (among others) are challenging the status quo.

    As our debt has built up into the trillions of dollars over the years (especially over the past few years), with no reckoning in sight, Trump’s moves may signal the beginning of the battle royal that has to happen at some point. Someone has to do it… I cannot imagine any other leader or potential leader who could or would undertake such an enormous task. There will be inevitable dislocations, stock market ups and downs of scary proportions, and fierce opposition from those unwilling to endure the discomfort…or the loss of their cushy sinecures.

    It is all part of rearranging the world. The countries of the world will be in rehab…where change will be required…and internal change is always the hardest thing to accomplish.

    Thats one reason we are working so hard and how we come up with solution after solution for problems made to steal ou ideas and money! Our founders created a system of government that ensured economic freedom while benefiting the many…of course, these Globalists throw everything and the kitchen sink to get every possible penny plus interest…left to our own economy, we’d return to sound capital and great investments.

    The Great China Trade Barrier

    President Trump continues to win, this time by breaking down the huge china trade barrier and opening the auto trade, and agriculture. Also, some major headway with Intel property theft and forced tech transfer.

      “Trump has We The People”

      Which is why they have to cheat with the votes. Everyone that matters know about that 2 years ago, yet it is still occurring. IMO voter fraud should be #2 on the priority list, after the invasion of illegals. In my limited political reading, I don’t see much hope for redoing an election because of fraud, on any level of government.

        So, strategy discussions, financing discussions, all sorts of ‘goldmine’ kinfo for opponents.

        WILL they release their servers to FBI forensic teams,….and SHOULD they?

    The portrait of President Trump running in the text here is not flattering to him at all. He is wearing a red tie and leaning forward on his desk, but his face is shown with an unnatural smile, hiding his usually handsome face. Isn’t there another in your file with him in the exact same stance, but a much more natural and flattering expression?…

    As a Stanford trained economist with a brief tenure on Wall Street before going to medical school, I can assure anyone who is interested that the “old guard” of Keynesian thinkers will never realize and/or admit that their primary focus on government spending and taxes is antithetical to growing a modern economy.

    Successful, future-oriented economic growth requires aggressive use of policies supporting the consumption and investment elements of the national income model. The President and his trade advisors understand this and have effected a near-miraculous awakening of a U.S. economy that was in a coma. The “old timers” such as Greenspan criticize the President because they can’t bear the pain that comes with admitting lifetimes of professional failure.

    The President and his trade negotiators are men among boys in the world economic arena, and it becomes more obvious every day.

      Magnificent, Doctor. Concur. Completely.

      Forty seven years ago, when Nixon and Kissinger cozied up to china at the insistence of their controllers, the rockefelons, even as high school senior we knew this was a bad move.

      The pressniks tooted the kazoo about Ping Pong Diplomacy, telling us all would now be wonderful with the chicoms who would become just like us thanks to eating American cheaszeburgers.

      We knew it was bull even then.

      What we’ve learned since is that during that era, Mao was senile and/or dying, and communism was on the verge of collapse. Had this country’s leaders left the chicoms be, communism would have collapsed.

      Instead, as Obama tried to do with Cuba, our RINOe leaders propped up communism for self-serving reasons. Greenspan was surely in on the gag, as he was shortly thereafter the one who cobbled Jerry Ford’s fatuous “WIN’ buttons – Whip Inflation Now.

      They caused the inflation, how were the citizens supposed to whip it? Greenspan et al have been selling us out for decades.

      As ‘dianecee’ posted in American Thinker, old Bush ‘invested in our demise.’ They all did.

      President Trump is investing in our success.

      A pleasure to read your comment.

  32. For those worried about the market, there are several factors at work. My post–which makes the argument that the market will remain volatile for awhile, is under the Peter Navarro thread, fwiw.

    Economically and politically we are still in a major shift from the post WW2 order to something different. President Trump and his team will continue to face headwinds as they battle to move us to MAGA approach; all my work in business and banking, as well as much time spent abroad, convince me that they are absolutely right. How amazing is it to have folks with skin in the game working on our behalf, for either $0 or peanuts. That is amazing patriotism.
