Politics to Support Wall Street Multinationals – Democrats Plan to Block Trump Trade Reset…

On Thursday June 20, 2019, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau traveled to Washington DC for a meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and democrat leadership.  After the political ideologues held the meeting, Trudeau and Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland tabled the Canadian ratification on the USMCA trade agreement.

It was obvious both groups of avowed leftists agreed to stall the USMCA for politics.

On August 13th White House emissary National Security Advisor John Bolton met with Britian’s Chancellor of Exchequer Sajid Javid, and the public became aware of efforts toward a six month post Brexit U.S-U.K trade agreement that would become effective on November 1st, 2019; immediately the day after Brexit was official.

On August 14th Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly rushed a press release saying the House would never support that interim U.S-U.K trade agreement, using cover story of worry about Ireland/Northern Ireland peace accord.  Beyond all the talking points the baseline reason for Pelosi’s opposition is Democrats do not support Brexit.  Both the immediacy and the construct of the counter-maneuver by Pelosi were noted. [House in recess].

Immediately after the deal between President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson became public; an intense international media effort began to push a narrative of the “U.S. heading to a recession”.  The group of corporate financial media interests; those who advance the interests of Wall Street and are adamantly adverse to a global trade reset; and the political opposition to Donald Trump, began using a recession talking point in unison.

There is a clear, albeit complex, timeline of Trump’s trade strategy that is evident to those who are following closely.

The confrontation with China is one part; the removal of the back-doors into the US economy (NAFTA) is another part; a looming confrontation with the EU over their protectionist exploitation of one-way tariffs is yet another part.

The strategy to deal with each of the three primary negative trade elements (China, NAFTA, EU) is clear within President Trump’s trade reset.

  • Bilateral deals with ASEAN partner nations and simultaneous crushing tariffs on China deals with one problem.  China’s removal of U.S. wealth and jobs is halted.
  • The construct of the USMCA, and country of origin for source material and strict enforcement mechanisms, deals with the second problem: NAFTA’s fatal flaw.
  • An reciprocal and barrier removing agreement between the U.S. and U.K; which can open a tariff free trade highway between North America and Europe; creates the leverage for Trump (benefit for Johnson) that begins to deal with the EU problem.

In the big picture President Donald Trump has purposefully stalled the process of supply chain globalization and cheap labor evaluation.  Trump is resetting global manufacturing supply chains, with U.S. incentives for relocation.   This is bringing wealth and jobs back into the United States (and North America).

In essence Titan Trump is engaged in a process of: (a) repatriating wealth (trade policy); (b) blocking exfiltration of wealth (main street policy); (c) creating new and modern economic alliances based on reciprocity (bilateral deals); and (d) dismantling the post WWII Marshall plan of global trade and one-way tariffs (de-globalization).

In all of these efforts U.S. multinational corporations, big companies on Wall St, are heavily opposed to President Trump because they have invested in those overseas operations.  Those companies facilitated the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs.

There is also now a clear alignment between those Wall Street multinationals, and democrats like Nancy Pelosi.   Wall Street’s ability to pay Pelosi and political leadership to protect their multinational interests; in combination with corporate promises of funding to Pelosi’s party; has created the unholy alliance of united interests.

That’s why Nancy Pelosi instructed Justin Trudeau to stall the Canadian ratification of the USMCA.  That’s the motive behind why Pelosi is working to stall, perhaps even eliminate, the USMCA ratification in the House.  This is also why Pelosi reacted so quickly to the framework of a deal between President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

It is a political strategy and calculation for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to attempt to sink the U.S. Main Street economy.  Weakening Trump’s China confrontation; blocking the USMCA; and impeding a trade agreement between the U.S. and U.K. are part of that calculation.

Prior to this week Hollywood was openly praying for a recession to weaken President Trump’s reelection efforts. However, this week we are now seeing Wall Street, and the media pundits therein, openly cheering for an economic recession for exactly the same purpose.

The aligned interests of Wall Street, media pundits and Democrats are all contingent upon harming the U.S. economy.  That is how severely ideological modern democrats are.

The democrats are willing to destroy Main Street in order to retain power.

There are trillions at stake.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

    I didn’t hear about Polosi talking about the proposed U.K.-US trade deal until I read this article. It begs the question of why Nancy Pelosi is worried about Northern Ireland and Ireland when the British, who negotiated the deal with Trump, are not? Trumps needs to ram that one down her throat.

        There is more to her response that just knee-jerk opposition to whatever President Trump does. A US-UK reciprocal free trade agreement would be a dagger to the heart of the socialist EU which could very well lead to its disintegration. The fact she responded immediately to the news while Congress is in recess tells me her EU socialist partners never expected the UK-US move and they are very worried.

        I want to see what the world would look like the day after the 2020 election if we had rigerous safeguards in place against Election Fraud.

        Some of the safeguards would be a National Voter ID that includes a picture and citizenship status and is only obtainable with proof of citizenship. Election day changed to Saturday and Sunday, paper ballets, no ballets harvesting, vote counting ended two hours after the poll closes, no more ballets can be counted after that and vote tally will be witnessed and recorded at the polling place.

        I personally believe that if we had those safeguards the day after the election when we can see with our own eyes what those lousy Democrats have done to us for years we would be ready to tar and feather any cheating Democrat who crossed our path.

        I think its more than that. When you look at how hard the EU fought Brexit, and the resistance of all the usual suspects, I THINK it confirms that Brexit is sounding the death knell fir the EU.

        IF ONE leaves, they all start to jump ship. If you think of EU as “United States of Europe, its like allowing one State to suceed from the Union.

        More appropriate, think of EU as USSR of Europe. Allowing ONE to get out from under the onerous regulations of Brussels, and they’re all gonna want to go.

        So. I DON’T think its JUST opposing “Trump”, its inter related.

        I keep thinking back to when PDJT said to Merkel “Well, maybe we (the U.S. and Germany) could do our own trade deal, then?”
        And she acted like a school marm, lecturing a dunce, or at least thats how the media portrayed it.
        Something like “You don’t understand, we are a UNION, there are no bi-lateral agreements!”
        And VSG just smiled,…..

      the media will eat itself on this one too. eventually their bad investment scams will turn too. But the rest needs to be set correctly first, then with no other way around; the MSM will either examine their own bad “investment strategies” they sunk themselves into holes (with), or be gone. Which is fine – they’re useless as they are now.

      Continue going around (them), until they’ve either completely bankrupted themselves; or change – and continue… lesson learned.

      As for Pelosi and NoIreland (that remark): that seemed to me to be an indication of hostility from outside sources/”or else” kind of statement. With Boris as PM, if Ireland is threatened (by EU financial interests with perhaps transients… Erdogan w/Pelosi et all financially involved in?) the reality is, that was Pelosi’s/Trudeau’s/etc. plan all along anyway (listen to prior financial planning statements of her’s/dems with their previous personal corp llc filings) – better to not allow the dismantling of Ireland’s financial structure now – before it (was going to happen anyway under EU/Ottoman deals) goes forward.

        I hope PDJT will up his communications game and respond to the specifics of this economy in transition toward s healthier place. If he treats the American people as responsible adults who ARE OWED THE TRUTH, they will follow him wherever he leads. If he continues to respond to the forces of globalism with insults in kind, some Americans are bound to lose their way. His communications style simply does not work for everyone, so he needs to diversify it for our country’s sake.

          There is another reason the financial media are cheering on the stock market volatility. Trading income at Wall Street investment banks depends on market volatility, without it there is less trading and lower profits. The VIX collapses since Q4 of last year until the last few weeks and as goes the VIX so go the banks’ trading profits.

          Just like the media that is profiting on the Trump + Russian story the banks are more than happy to trot out their equity capital market experts to talk up a looming recession. It is in their financial interests to spread ‘financial doom porn’.

    Trump has proved conventional wisdom wrong so many times everyone has lost count. Mark my words, if we’re in a recession next year (not what I’m expecting) it won’t be POTUS Trump that owns it.

    As for USMCA, I remain optimistic for its passage well before the election. Perhaps as early as this fall. The fact of the matter is that all of its opponents (The CoC; Wall Street; Multinationals) have had to play a duplicitous game of publicly supporting what they hope to derail. The POTUS has let them get away with this but, as you see with his beating The Fed and its Chairman about the head, if that’s the way they want it that’s the way they’re going to get it.

    Just for current information:
    The betting on a Trudeau victory is close to 50/50. Nobody knows who will win. The election occurs in the third week of October.

    The betting favors Britain making a No-Deal exit from the EU on 31st October. A huge and hysterical effort is being made to stop this happening.

    It appears likely that China will have intervened in Hong Kong by the end of October. There are no odds for this. Local elections are supposed to occur in HK in November.

    In Europe, Ursula von der Leyen takes over from Juncker on 31st October. Barring something completely unforseen, this is certain.

    Poland has recently swung into focus and elections occur there in the second week of October for the parliament, not for President Duda. The current government is strongly favored to win.

    Prior to October, Israel goes to the polls again in September. Netanyahu is expected to win.

    The world may well be be a different place by November, particularly if Trudeau loses.

      First, I had an epiphany;
      OMG, PDJT has NO intention of actually reaching a ‘trade deal’ with China, its all a ruse.

      THEN, another epiphany;
      OMG, EU too, for similar reasons.

      Then, another epiphany;
      OMG, USMCA is also a ruse; its a way to close the loophole, get idiots to expose their true natures, and end NAFTA.

      If and so long as he can leverage Mexico to ‘help’with Immigration, fine.
      Remember during the USMCA, when US reps met with Mexico, 1 on 1.

      I would BET you it was suggested “look, if we can’t get Canada to go along, PDJT actually PREFERS Bi-lateral deals.

      So, lets make a deal Mexico and US can ‘live with’; if Canada agress or not, either way WE have a deal.

          Yes, thats part of it, which is actually part of “don’t allow your EMOTIONS to dictate your actions”
          Those who don’t walk away, want a deal SOOOO BAD that they agree to a bad deal, just for the optics.

          It is also important to remember who has the leverage. The US is the biggest market on the planet. The US domestic economy consumes 80% of what the US produces. The US can sell the remaining 20% to the rest of the world. The US economy can get by just fine without exporting anything to Canada.

          The top 10 Canadian exports are:
          Mineral fuels including oil: US$99.3 billion (22% of total exports)
          Vehicles: $60.5 billion (13.4%)
          Machinery including computers: $34.5 billion (7.7%)
          Gems, precious metals: $18.3 billion (4.1%)
          Wood: $14.3 billion (3.2%)
          Plastics, plastic articles: $13.6 billion (3%)
          Electrical machinery, equipment: $13.4 billion (3%)
          Aircraft, spacecraft: $10.6 billion (2.4%)
          Aluminum: $10 billion (2.2%)
          Paper, paper items: $8 billion (1.8%)

          Does the US really need anything that Canada exports? Is there anything on that list the US can’t get from domestic sources or from other trading partners?

          On the other hand, what happens to the Canadian economy if the US stops importing Canadian vehicles, machinery, wood, etc.

          I don’t want our Canadian brothers to get hurt, but if they won’t ratify a fair trade deal, then they get what they chose.

          Remove Canada and the Democratic Congress would have to ratify the Mexican only trade deal. They would be under way way too much pressure to do that.

  23. President Trump made perhaps the strongest argument yet for his MAGA/KAG efforts across the board, when he said people have no choice but him. That’s the bare, hard truth. It is still basically Trump vs. Obama/Soetoro (the latter, I see on Dobbs tonight, is trying to mentor Biden — good grief).

    It’s time P Trump ramps up the pressure on the Democrat Reps and Senators about their party’s politicized reluctance to pass the USMCA and scuttle any trade deal with the UK. Let everyone of their constituents know before, during and after the next Rally that the Dems are not co-operating with POTUS on the economy and are even trying to derail it along with the crazed Hollywood “activists” and those American business people that pine to return to the days when it was easy and non controversial to export millions of American jobs to China, Mexico etc.

    The jobs and potential economic opportunities of their local voters are not a priority to the Dem party anymore than the murders in Chicago are or the diseased homeless camps in California and Seattle and the poverty and rats in the derelict areas of Baltimore. It’s Trump’s voice that shines a light on all of these and other issues.

      I encourage people I talk with to call their Congress reps and let them know you want to see the House in particular get to work on the USAMC and immigration and more. Speak with your spouse, talk about your kids/nieces/nephews/grandchildren and their future. My very democratic spouse called our three in Virginia, and was very proud of himself.

    Last I heard NAFTA could be unilaterally terminated by the executive per ratified law.

    Why not do that already and force the house to ratify?

    If they don’t, the real economy wins even more.
    If they do, they lose politically and the real economy wins anyway.

    What am I missing here?
    Why is this not happening already?

    People shouldn’t expect all these Globalist crooks and corrupts to all of a sudden support Trumps MAGA. It takes a long time to change a lifestyle, if ever. It also explains the reason for long prison sentences. If it was that easy there wouldn’t be a need for near the number of prisons.

    “That is how severely ideological modern democrats are. … The democrats are willing to destroy Main Street in order to retain power.”

    With respect, I urge that their ideological loyalty trumps their thirst for power. It is the deeper motivation. Communism is more important to Communists than power, prestige, money, and even sex. For support of that observation, I invoke Stephen Kotkin:

    Quoting but not verbatim: Stalin was not about power. He was about Communism. In private, he and his minions talked the same way they talked in public. They were Communists, they talked Communism. https://theological-geography.net/?p=39426

    I’m confused. Is USMCA a treaty or not? I can understand that there are provisions of the treaty the House needs to pass, but couldn’t the Senate pass it as a treaty pending any necessary legislation? In other words, can turtle stick it to Pelosi?

    Trump needs to do a prime time address to the country to explain USMCA and how it will bring massive investment back to the USA with hundreds of new factories and tens of thousands of new jobs that will revitalize the Rustbelt — and how the Democrats are blocking it. The entire GOP should get behind this. Of course half of them won’t because they are owned by the globalist interests.

    Pelosi and the Democrats have a major problem brewing after the first of the year. If they continue to obstruct and don’t pass the USMCA they go into the start of the presidential race having done NOTHING! Trump will use that his advantage, if the economy suffers (as they would like) it will be blamed on them. If they decide to pass it to avoid the “done ZERO” congress label then they give Trump a huge win and the economy will boom.

  35. Leaving aside the stinking substance, this doesn’t even pass the procedural smell test. How is it that a foreign leader is able to meet with members of Congress on US soil instead of meeting with the US President? How was Justin from Canada able to just come into our country and meet with legislators, a branch of government that he should have zero access to, as they are supposed to represent US citizens (I know, I’m theorizing. They represent the interest of the highest bidder).

    [Gunnery Sergeant Hartman voice]: “Who allows Justin from Canada to bypass our protocols and interfere in our internal affairs? How did he get into our country? Why hasn’t he been arrested and expelled from our country as a foreign threat? Why aren’t you stomping his guts out?”

    If we don’t have borders, we don’t have a country. Evidently… we don’t have a country.

    Russian interference is a leftist projection. Foreign Leftist interference in our country– communist China, Justin from Canada, GCHQ/Five Eyes spying on everyone reading this– is real.
