Larry Kudlow Discusses the State of The U.S. Economy – While Decepticon Caucus Makes Anti-MAGA Moves…

ACTION ALERT: The Decepticon caucus inside the senate, under the control of U.S. Wall Street’s primary CoC Lobbyist and Big Club President Tom Donohue, are assembling to launch a full frontal assault against President Trump’s trade policies. Seriously watch out for Senators Pat Toomey, Rob Portman and Ron Johnson:

Toomey said reining in Trump’s tariff powers also has strong backing from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable and dozens of other trade associations. “There’s clearly a lot of momentum, but only time will tell whether it’s enough to get over the goal line.” (link)

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow appeared on Fox Business today to discuss President Trump’s State of the Union address and the Trump administration’s economic policies.

      Unfortunately , the Senators often refer to changes as the “will of the people” or “been contacted by many” which misleads population in state to think it what majority want.

      • That’s absolutely correct, LBB! That’s the use of political rhetoric that 90% of the people just don’t seem to grasp. It’s funny how whenever I talk about how politicians lie and make false statements, nearly everyone and their dog will agree with me. However, the odd thing is that most people won’t even question what the politician said and simply accept it as fact. What the hell?

      Toomey is one of my state’s senators. I first heard about this on Twitter in a post by Maria Bartiromo. I replied that since NAFTA was not a treaty, but a trade “DEAL,” and “deals” are not covered in the Constitution, I didn’t think Toomey had an argument.

They keep telling us he is the “most electable” as they go on about him being a “reliable” Republican vote. Not sure what is happening in Portman’s state.

        Hello CC: Living in Boulder CO as one of 6 conservatives I know who live in Bldr, No matter that Gardner is at best a RINO, IMAHO, he will not be re-elected. The Dimms will get him out. We are now way into California-land. Prepare for the worst. The RNC is dead here in Colorado. They were an absolute no-show in Boulder in the mid-terms.

        So why does Ronna/RNC Chair/Niece of Mitt still support Pres. Trump when the RNC/she are abandoning so many elections in so many states….

        Perhaps in our discussions here, we should also be finding new leadership in the RNC??
        We may not have to conduct a civil war or a March on DC IF WE TAKE OVER THE REPUBLICAN PARTY infrastructure. The obvious point I never thought about until this moment: Their INFRASTRUCTURE is ours to take AND if we take back the RNC.

        We’ve been psyching ourselves up for civil war and/or socialism when all we have to do is take back the RNC. And that starts with finding a better RNC chair than Ronna.

        And Pres. Trump can’t take out Ronna–too many political ramifications from the GOPe, including Mitt. Think about it…. Talk out about it on blogs, social media, wherever you can. #TakebackourpartyfromtheUniparty

Also ask him if he has a position on whether or not the trade deficit that we have run with the Chinese has had anything to do with their arms build-up. Finally ask him if reducing our trade deficit with the Chinese is a good thing when, for example, they have committed to building five nuclear-powered aircraft carries in the next ten years. This s**theel has the nerve to question the President’s use of the tariff authority when China has been ripping us off for years, is in the midst of a major arms build-up, and is threatening its neighbors with territorial claims in the South China Sea!

          Won’t make a bit of difference – Portman’s bought and paid for – if he dared to have second thoughts, they’d expose him on NYT Page One – just to keep the rest in line.

          The question will come down to simple math – are there 20 certain RINO votes to override the certain POTUS veto. McConnell knows his caucus, he won’t risk passing it if he can’t sustain it. This is a straight-up deathmatch. McConnell has to deliver for his CoC and Chinese paymasters – and ’20 re-election campaign funders – but he dare not try if he’s not certain of the outcome.

    I am from Ohio and Portman is one of our Senators; the other is Sherrod Brown (ugh). Unfortunately, Portman can’t be trusted.

    He campaigned on marriage being defined as between one man and one woman; that was one of the major reasons he was elected in Ohio. Several years later, he announced that his son is homosexual so he had changed his mind; now marriage between two consenting adults, no matter what their gender, is OK with him.

    As a result, I am not surprised by anything that he does; what he says he stands for and what he does are two different things.

        All taxes are evil at heart, more taxes fund more government, more government inevitably requires more taxes – see how that works. Tariffs, by definition, raise prices – period.

        The only question is who pays the final tab. In a highly competitive economy, the seller either absorbs the costs or passes them through to the buyer. A 10% tariff can be absorbed by most sellers, a 25% tariff will almost inevitably be passed through to the buyer, resulting in the buyer moving to the less expensive non-tariffed seller.

        Tariffs are, again by definition, government interference in the ‘free’ market. I oppose them – except when they are in response to another government’s interference in that same supposedly ‘free’ market. When both parties are trading on a truly ‘free’ market, tariffs are not needed or justifiable.

        Trade with China is not currently a ‘free’ market. Ergo, tariffs are a viable tool to move the Chinese toward a ‘free’ market.

    The Bad

      Thanks Ryan. I was offered the opportunity to attend this event, but the thought of listening to Toomey spout his bilge about globalism while being surrounded by state and county committee toadies made me ill.

    It seems to me the House and Senate are trying to legislate away most all powers of our President (heavy sigh).

      They are attempting, once again, to exercise the veto. They tried that with war powers as in letting a President start a war and Congress can force a halt later, or in recent days, pass a resolution demanding that we never leave some country until the Congress says we can. Those people want to let a President act, but when a constituency, such as the Chamber, does not like it, they want to veto. The Supreme Court already ruled the Congress has no veto.

    To Western PA and Linus: I’m in South Eastern Pa and I certainly do know who Casey is. I fought against him. We were let doourwn by Val DiGeorgio, the GOP leader in the last election. Both Casey and Wolfe should have been easy to beat but the GOPe didn’t even work for the good guys who were running against them. Toomey has been a letdown for a long time to me. You’re right, he has been a never-Trumper from the beginning. I will let everyone on my email list know this latest bill that he is co-sponsoring and ask them to contact him, whatever good it will do.

    I’ve always had a question about supposedly “experts” on the economy. Who makes them experts and how do you qualify to be an expert? Are they self acclaimed?

    Again, these self-described geniuses who are always for sale have been doing this very same thing, sans resistance, for many years are facing an adversary for the very first time.

    I’ve written my senators. My hunch is that the average voter thinks of the local Chamber of Commerce when they hear the name. The local Chamber is Main Street. The national Chamber is Wall Street. We need to educate the voters on the distinction.

      Actually local CoCs aren’t much better. My sister pissed ours off some years ago when they called to tell us not to overfish, that some “species were in danger of becoming extinct” yada yada globalist climate change bull crap. My sister told the person on the phone she was about to go out and fish right then.

      We’ve never been fishing in our lives.

    My question is: the CoC. In general. Who’s second in command? Is Tom Donohue actually the boss or is he the puppet who’s having strings pulled? Is the CoC really the end-all of this chain of corruption or is there someone/thing else behind it, too? Where/what/who are the actual brains of the operation? If it really is Tom Donohue who is the Big Boss Man, what happens if something happens to him? (He’s no spring chicken.)

    Not sure how my Senator Johnson is brought in on this, but I have contacted his office to get clarification. The linked article does not mention him. The linked article seems to complain mostly about steel and aluminum tariffs, which should be helping the US industry (especially PA). The linked article seems to be written by the COC and disregards MAGA. According to the article: “American Keg, the sole producer of stainless steel kegs in America, had to lay off one-third of its workforce when steel prices spiked”. So their customers stopped needing kegs? I call BS.

      Johnson is on video as noted in this august blog obliviously attempting to school President Trump on the nature of trade and the pending doom from PDJT’s proposed tariffs.

      He looked pretty damn goofy too.

    The deception will continue. I think these deceptors will try to roll back Trumps booming economy in 2019 (their already predicting it) so they can say Trumps policies are hurting the US economy.

    As Sundance keeps pointing out these CoC owned politicians on both sides have Trillions and Trillion to loose with these trade deals. They’re not gonna go down sitting on their hands. 2020 primary season, Trump and his administration are our only Allies but not necessarily in that order.

    There is an alternative to tarriffs that the President can use than would inflict far more pain and Congress would have trouble stopping.

    The president can order the State Department to review, revise and/or cancel Export Licenses, Manufacturing Assistance Agreements, Technical Assisstance Agreements and Technology Transfer Agreements. Then he can order the State Department and DoJ to review all export license compliance records.

    It woud not be surpising to discover that most of the “technology theft” by foreign powers is leaglly self inflicted and US companies are hiding behind President Trump’s claims of “theft”.

      If i were a democrat, i would be demanding these actions anyway as they would be a major source of fines from oponents as well as kick back and/or laundered funds for democrat coffers/pockets.

    It’s time for the President to shine the spotlight on the RINOS during his speeches and add them to the oft mentioned dems as obstructors of the MAGA policies. Enough of the “how united the republicans are”, they aren’t. The Presidents’ only got the Freedom Caucus members in Congress and maybe Rand Paul in the Senate depending on the moon phases. Calling them out by name would be good for a start.

    In one words, the Senate’s version of the Three Stooges are tellin the President and the American people “Screw You”!!!
    How about if Congress wants the President’s tax returns released we get Congress’ tax returns at the same time. Let the voters see how much you guys are milking K Street, the C of C, and other lobbyists for. You don’t give a flying flip about the voters if it means YOUR bank account doesn’t stay inflated! Put up or shut up! NOW!!

    There are NO senators that are reliably pro-Trump. While publicity hound Jim Jordan was pro-Trump on one issue he was voting against Trump on another issue, on the same day!
