Steve Bannon Responds To China Labeling Him “Demon”, Arch-Nemesis of Beijing…

Steve Bannon appears on Fox Business news to discuss his new label as global “demon” to Beijing for Bannon’s strategic opposition to the rise of Chinese dragonomics.

.

Mr. Bannon is correct in outlining President Trump’s long term strategy to break the global supply chain and reset structural trade priorities.  There’s a reason why President Trump pours vociferous praise on Xi Jinping while simultaneously executing the most brilliant geopolitical economic reset in history.  President Trump is mirroring Beijing’s approach, a panda mask that hides the dragon…

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 domestic food products 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.

Watch Japan.

Watch Shinzo Abe.

Remember, W. Edwards Demming.

Abe knows the key to the golden ticket.

At the apex of the highest levels of finance and business; in a process that extends within both private business and the geopolitical realm of government; a part of every long-term strategic reset requires an alliance.

        Actually, that is PRECISELY what he is. The Chinese know they cannot drop their mask as it pertains to Trump. But they can absolutely express themselves as it is directed to someone associated with Trump but not directly and not involved in negotiations.

        This *IS* an attack on Trump but “it’s not.”

        Likewise, Trump isn’t just ‘playing nice’ when Trump says “Xi is a friend! I like him!” It’s the exact same game and Trump knows what it means to the other side while at the same time it confuses people in the rest of the non-oriental world.

          @Daniel: There is nothing worse for Xi having to deal with president Trump. While Xi tries so hard to keep his mask in place the fact of the matter is his realization that the president is a beyond formidable opponent.
          Anyone other than this president would already caved. Dragging this out to the election in 2020 and hoping he gets a compromised Biden has dawned on him to be a lousy strategy. Listening to Hussein, Kerry, Hillary and others promising the removal of president Trump so far was a pipedream ergo he now is forced into an untenable position of capitulation one way or the other.

          Pride only goes so far and in Xi’s case it leads to disaster.

He seems thoughtful and quite coherent in this interview. Obviously, for the past two years, he’s been working with opposition to the EU.

          Fair enough. But I believe they concocted something very similar to what we’re seeing previous to the falling out. And as life is, and especially anything political or warfare driven at this level, things get out of line.

          I still hold that this was the agreement – Bannon would exit and play PR for Trump. It just ended up much more sour than it should have been (I think intentional by Bannon who threw it all into the fire at the end).

          One way to think of it would be that Bannon escalated the situation, driving himself out and pushing it toward the edge for this usage. It would make sense since he’d be out of the administration and was playing PR. I’ve repeated here many times that he has said in interviews; “It can be good to be Darth Vader sometimes”.

          Sounds crazy? I’ve seen people do this type of theater + countermove in corporations. Not everyone agrees on the tactics. But it takes two to tango and one can make it play to their chaos theory.

            Did anyone watch his on stage love fest speech with Preibus. They were buddies with adjoining offices who thought President Trump couldn’t do anything without their input.

            Bannon has found his proper place in things and his delusions of grandeur have taken a back seat to what he can now do practically to help what he’s claimed to support all along.

            He learned a tough lesson the hard way and seems to have accepted he’s no Donald Trump but still has something to contribute.

      Disagree completely. Have you watched the BBC? The hosts are on a complete script at this point. They’ve given up even trying it’s gotten that bad. The ones that aren’t on a script are just a bit nutty (similar to most of the ones we have here).

      What it’s done to the UK populace should be decried. Even if it’s only encroaching upon 20% as bad as CCTV…it’s still TOO much and should just not exist. What the BBC has done with the UK is far far worse than we’re suffering here in the states. It explains a lot about the situation they’re in vs. ourselves.

      I despise the BBC.

          You’re looking at it wrong.

          The fact is that there should never be state-run media like that. The fact that you can change the channel isn’t the point. The point is that you should just be able to turn off the TV. It is a dangerous game to play and it should never ever exist. The level of which the BBC plays is already happening and a majority of the country is forced to watch it (as they run most of the stations). There’s not many other options besides streaming (for premium content). I think his comparison to BBC is slightly exaggerated sure, but fair. They should have never allowed that to happen to themselves.

            BS, I am not looking at it wrong. You may turn off the TV in Britain, you may also go online and read what the hell you want. You have choice. You have multiple stations broadcasting. You seem to be arguing that the Beeb has no oversight. You seem to think that no one criticises their coverage everyday. They do. At least the people may express their dissatisfaction and not end up in prison or disappeared.

                  A2, While I agree that being unable to turn off ones turning off T.V sounds ludicrous.

                  While we seldom have T.V. on, the influence of T.V. news propaganda is everywhere. It’s on 24/7 in McDonalds, Doctors waiting rooms, hotels and airports. What pi**es me off is the tape that runs across the bottom of the screen. Nearly always has subtle digs at TRUMP seldom is President Trump ever treated with respect.

                  I was in the land of my birth ( Scotland) last summer, and the vitriol and lies spread by the BBC about PDJT was disgusting.

                  Many Americans may not know it, but it costs over $300.00 a year for a T.V. Licence in the U.K. and most of the revenue goes to the BBC. This licence was mandatory unless things ave changed.

                  The CBC up here in Canada receives hundreds of millions in government support, guess who the CBC support?

    Steve does a first rate job in articulating the layout of the economic battlefield about which President Trump has prepared a long term strategy. I am glad Steve corrected Trish on that one, although I think she meant that PDJT’s strategy would only survive his term of office.

    However if the shift back to Main Street continues at the present pace or anywhere near it, then IMO politicians will have a difficult time persuading middle class working Americans to let them take the country backwards into the malaise and rust belt era of the 1990s up to DJTrump’s election.

        You are correct about the large number of Americans who still naively believe that news from a TV channel or from a traditional “old media” source is accurate or objective.

        Because the Left so brilliantly co-opted 95% of American Media over the last 60 years, most Americans are blind to the gradual leftward shift of the bias. It’s the old “frog in the pot of warm water” strategy. And their recent hardline fascist censorship in social media is hurting the reach of conservatives’ message.

        At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I repeat my platitude that until someone launches effective social media platforms on par** with Facebook and Twitter but that is completely open to conservative messaging, we cannot reach enough people with the Truth about the Left’s lies, so as to bring real consequential pressure on the MSM.

        **on par means it needs to be AS easy to use – with little or no training/ learning curve, and capable of importing all of a user’s existing info, photos, and messages from the old app.

    Good to remember…

    “In the 1930s Deming became interested in ways that statistical analysis could achieve better quality control in industry. Deming’s quality-control methods were based on a systematic tallying of product defects that included the identification and analysis of their causes. Once the causes of defects were corrected, the outcomes were tracked to measure the effects of those corrections on subsequent product quality.

    In 1950 Japanese business leaders invited Deming to Japan to teach executives and engineers about the new methods. Japanese companies quickly adopted his methods, with the result being a commitment to quality control that helped Japanese firms dominate some product markets in many parts of the world. The Deming Prize (established 1951), awarded annually to Japanese corporations that win a rigorous quality-control competition, is named in Deming’s honour. It was not until the 1980s that Deming’s ideas were adopted by American corporations seeking to compete more effectively in the world market.”

    Our own auto industry was wiped out by Japan because we did not listen to one of our own.

    And Bethlehem Steel’s headquarters building was just imploded yesterday.

      US 4wds like Jeep and lwb Fords and GMs simply could not compete on quality, toughness and longevity with Toyota and, years ago, Nissan (Patrol, not a player anymore).
      The Toyota Landcruiser and Hi Lux own serious 4wd operations, private and commercial. The reason is they are far better vehicles.

  19. This is a prescient interview. TY Sundance for posting it.

    I’ve been pondering the issue of why so many remain unpersuaded by the obvious successes of POTUS. I’m not referring to the hard-core left or Democrat/progressive types; just the average voter. Many of the so-called “elite” in professional/managerial/engineering and other professions have not kept up with the uber-powerful/wealthy types in private equity, entertainment, media and professional NGOs/government areas.

    The genius of President Trump, together with his dogged pursuit of his economic strategies IS making a difference–despite the propaganda merchants of MSM. But how to penetrate to the rest of the voters?

    One only has to watch the film “Crazy Rich Asians” to grasp the astounding wealth transfer that has occurred–contrasted with the cratering towns in much of America. I am convinced that these images, properly communicated, CAN reach the independents if the message is well crafted.
    This can happen REGARDLESS of whether these same voters grasp the depths of treachery of Spygate.

    Would so appreciate hearing from other Treepers that have had success in changing the minds of friends and family about what has been persuasive.

      Here we sit, in an upscale North Jersey Shore community rife with professionals including corporate attorneys, specialty physicians/surgeons, Wall Streeters of various analytic, fund-managerial, and hugely successful trading types.

      Over a quarter-century, I’ve found that with one or two foreign-born exceptions virtually none of these educated, highly functional and wealthy estate proprietors have either the slightest acquaintance with, or interest in, any non-commercial values outside the Manhattan art-market. Most everything non cyber-technical they know, or care about, dates from a very narrow socio-cultural base extant from mid-1950s to early 1980s.

      Not only are specifics –historical names, dates, places– lacking, but so is any sense whatever of who we are, how came we here, why circumstances could easily have taken other turns. (One lady asserted the American Civil War occurred in 1920s, commemorated by “Gone with the Wind” just ten years later.)

      What this indicates is that the extant 4% of people (top fifth of one-fifth) with any awareness of historical context-and-perspective have the future to themselves.

    W.E. Deming, 1900 – 1993, who began as an electrical engineer, segued to mathematical physics, and from c. 1950 – ’60 inspired post-WW II Japan’s “economic miracle” (comparable to Milton Friedman’s “Chicago Boys” resuscitation of Pinochet’s post-Socialist Chile through the 1980s), was a seminally effective “philosopher of markets” whose libertarian insights informed myriad practical accomplishments.

    Throughout the 72-year postwar period, 1945 – 2017, three great political-economic figures loom very large: Germany’s native Ludwig Erhard; Americans W.E. Deming in Japan and Milton Friedman in Pinochet’s chaos-ridden Chile. Given these three’s decisive refutation of collectivist/Statism in real-world practice as well as classic theory, the studious neglect of demonstrated results has always seemed most odd. (See also Nobelist Norman Borlaug, chiliastic AGW deviants’ bete noir for nigh-on five decades.)

    Anyone considering “expert opinion” on virtually any economic, political, scientific topic had best review P.E.Tetlock’s 20-year, 81-thousand input study of philomath “foxes” vs. phobophile “hedgehogs” (Isaiah Berlin), 1984 – 2004. Vindicating Yogi Berra (“never predict anything, especially about the future”), high-status, generously compensated, authoritative panjandrums invariably fail at both long- and short-term forecasting in every possible domain.

  23. “In the era of explaining the complex it’s a planetary economic reset almost too massive and consequential to encapsulate in words.”

    Someone needs to find the words, maybe in a fireside chat format, to explain the near-unexplainable to large groups of Americans like the farmers. A four-year Presidential system is not helpful to implementing large systemic (and dislocating) changes, especially when there’s a wall of money agitating on the other side.

If other countries were lead by Trump like beings it would make the world the greatest ever. Is it achievable, no, but he’s surely the greatest leader this country has ever had (Imho) and his discussions, meetings, kindness are affecting the world and it’s leaders. I wish everyone in America could see the light as I do but I’m happy he’s sharing his light with other world leaders and people who get it and are astounded.
