President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson Discuss “Big Trade Deal”…

The structure of the global trade reset is visible.  The China decoupling is underway; the scale of this geopolitical dynamic is incredible.

KORUS  (Korea-US) is in the books; the North American USMCA is complete, pending ratification; the EU has agreed to purchase U.S. beef exports; and effective today the Japan-US deal is agreed in principle (sans auto and industrial products TBD).  Now  President Trump is working on a post-Brexit UK-US bilateral package.

President Trump has single-handily, and purposefully, stalled the global economy and is forcing massive amounts of wealth back into the United States. In essence Titan Trump is engaged in a process of: (a) repatriating wealth (trade policy); (b) blocking exfiltration (main street policy); (c) creating new and modern economic alliances based on reciprocity; and (d) dismantling the post WWII Marshall plan for global trade and one-way tariffs.

Every minute element within this process, no matter how seemingly small, has President Trump’s full attention. He has assignments to many, but he relies upon none.

China and the EU have devalued their currency in an effort to block the impacts from President Trump and the ‘America First’ trade policy.

Because those currencies are pegged against the dollar, the resulting effect is a rising dollar value. The globalist IMF is now blaming President Trump for having a strong economy that forces international competition to devalue their currency.

That’s the stupid hypocrisy of global banking outlooks. They make a decision to devalue their currency, which causes the dollar value to rise, and then turn around and blame the U.S. dollar for being overvalued.  The root cause of the devaluation is unaddressed in their argument.

The EU (specifically Germany and France) and China are trying to retain their global manufacturing position and offset the impact of President Trump’s tariffs by lowering the end value of their exports.

In the bigger picture this is why President Trump is the most transformative economic President in the last 75 years. The post-WWII Marshall Plan was set up to allow Europe and Asia to place tariffs on exported American industrial products. Those tariffs were used by the EU and Japan to rebuild their infrastructure after a devastating war. However, there was never a built in mechanism to end the tariffs…. until President Trump came along and said: “it’s over”!

After about 20 years (+/-), say 1970 to be fair, the EU and Japan received enough money to rebuild. But instead of ending the one-way payment system, Asia and the EU sought to keep going and build their economies larger than the U.S. Additionally, the U.S. was carrying the cost of protecting the EU (via NATO) and Japan with our military. The EU and Japan didn’t need to spend a dime on defense because the U.S. essentially took over that role. But that military role, just like the tariffs, never ended. Again, until Trump.

The U.S. economy was the host for around 50 years of parasitic wealth exfiltration, or as most would say “distribution”. [Note I use the term *exfiltration* because it better highlights that American citizens paid higher prices for stuff, and paid higher taxes within the overall economic scheme, than was needed.]

President Trump is the first and only president who said: “enough”, and prior politicians who didn’t stop the process were “stupid” etc. etc. Obviously, he is 100% correct.

For the past 30 years the U.S. was a sucker to keep letting the process remain in place while we lost our manufacturing base to overseas incentives. The investment process from Wall Street (removal of Glass-Stegal) only made the process much more severe and faster.

As a result Wall Street was now investing in companies whose best bet (higher profit return) was to pour money overseas. This process created the “Rust Belt”, and damn near destroyed the aggregate U.S. manufacturing industry.  This process also decoupled Wall Street multinational corporations from Main Street USA.

Fast forward to 2017 through today, and President Trump is now engaged in a massive and multidimensional effort to re-balance the entire global wealth dynamic.

By putting tariffs on foreign imports he has counterbalanced the never-ending Marshal Plan trade program and demanded renegotiation(s).

Trump’s goal is reciprocity; however, the EU and Asia, specifically China, don’t want to give up a decades-long multi-generational advantage. This is part of the fight.

One could argue that China’s rise happened inside this period, and as a consequence they have no comprehension of an economic history without the institutional advantages.

Beijing has never competed with the U.S. under any terms of equivalence or fairness; they’ve only ever known the advantages. Combine that reality with the Chinese communist mindset and you get the extreme severity of their position.

So yeah, there’s going to be pain – for them; massive economic pain – as the process of reestablishing a fair trading system is rebuilt. This dynamic is the essence of reciprocity that benefits Main Street USA.

Unfortunately, putting ‘America First’ is now also against the interests of the U.S. multinationals on Wall Street; so President Trump has to fight adverse economic opponents on multiple fronts…. and their purchased mercenary army we know as DC politicians.

No-one, ever, could take on all these interests. Think about it… The EU, Asia, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, China, Russia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the World Bank, Iran, U.S. Congress, Wall Street, the Big Club, Lobbyists, Hollywood, Corporate Media (foreign and domestic), and the ankle-biters in Never Trump…. All of these financial interests are aligned against Main Street USA and against President Trump.

Name one individual who could take them on simultaneously and still be winning, bigly.

They say he’s one man. They say they have him outnumbered. Yet somehow, as unreal as it seems, he’s the one who appears to have them surrounded.

Incredible.

      We could always go back to a gold standard with a twist. Each country has an allotment and when it hits a certain level, trade closes with that country. With the devaluation game, everyone has a surplus with the USA and we just sit with a target on our backs. This would end the currency/interest rate games.

          We used to be on the gold standard and never raised the price of gold. In the 60’s they manipulated the price of gold through the London gold pool. Raising the price of gold was considered a failure as it was considered a devaluation. Not raising the dollar price of gold however to adjust for inflation, eventually it drops below the cost of mining.

          Dollars and gold were thus not equivalent in worth and France started to figure it out and started raiding the US treasury. We had started to go into debt and were stacking treasuries overseas and trying to spread them out so it did not look so bad.

          Once everyone figures out the fixed price of gold is no longer sustainable, everybody is going to get in on the action figuring you are going to have to raise the dollar conversion price. Congress never raised the price of gold and it remains at $42.22 per ounce3 last I checked.

          Gold as a trade balance mechanism was ended and we have been on the floating currency system since. But as you can see, there is no balance any more. Everybody plays interest rate games and prints all the currency they want. At some point we need a reevaluation of how the game works.

            Thank you so much. I remember those days. I remember Econ classes where profs and books talked of ‘wage-push’ and ‘cost-pull’ inflation. Geez. In the back of my mind was the seed for thinking,”‘They’ are making inflation on purpose to hurt us!”

            And before and after Nixon I thought ‘they’ should be forced to acknowledge past inflation be adjusting the dollar price of gold upward.

            How much physical gold is out there really? Congress can coin money by its own power and it can issue gold and silver coins and certificates – without a Federal Reserve. Maybe you call it ‘dollars’ and whatever it buys is what it’s worth.

              I only brought it up because when Trump put the tariffs on China to control trade, they manipulated the currency to negate the effects of the tariffs, Under Trump policy of bring your dollars here and invest here, a high dollar is going to be a continual problem of tariff adjustment.

                Right, it’s called ‘currency manipulation’ because it’s not truly representative of true value found in their money – cheating around the edges of inflation. But the Chinese still have to put 20% or 25% or now 30% (of what USA says is the price of the Chinese product being imported) into the tariff man’s customs duty basket, before the product can leave the border and enter USA – and finally China gets paid by the importer/buyer.

                So China is still paying strong, losing profits, just to have a buyer, just to prevent unemployed workforce in China.

                So to everyone who doesn’t read the Treehouse – NO, China has NOT tricked their way around the Trump Tariffs. YES, we are winning and I’m not tired of it!

    What they don’t seem to fathom is that Trump is two or three steps ahead of them in the divide and conquer plan. He sets up deals with smaller Asian countries and they don’t look twice. He looks to Mexico and Canada to re-do NAFTA and the Canadians balk so he makes a deal with Mexico. Canada realizes they are about to be shut out and must come on-board USMCA without their terms. EU didn’t want to make a deal but Trump is working with the Brits. They will either realize they are going to be shut out or they will miss the boat entirely. Trump was setting up the world economic playing field before the match with China even really starts. When it starts, the countries that worked against Trump and America will find themselves in quite a bind.

      Perot,
      “Can we just keep Demicons and swamp from screwing it up when he’s gone?”
      Thats assuming they will survive that long. The Democrat face of the Uniparty has destroyed its credibility, permanently. There attempt to push sleepy joe out there to say “C’mon, man! We’re still your Dads Democrat party!”
      Isn’t going to fool anybody, all its going ti do is inflame the Dem/Socialist, who will blow the party up, totally undercutting Joes message.

      The RepubliCONS have exposed themselves to the rank and file, coming out of stealth mode to counter PDJT’s efforts, too many times. They can no longer hide behind “party of stupid”.

      With an end to the exfiltration of wealth, a lot of the swamp games,won’t be fun or profitable any more.
      What point to being an unregistered lobbiest for a foreign government or industry, if there are -0- tariffs?

      PDJT’s goal actually includes -0- SUBSIDIES; Government subsidies to ‘support’ certain companies or industries. So, what point to lobby Congress, for U.S. Companies, if there are no tax advantages or government loans to be had?

      In short, what point in being swampy, if there is no $ to be made?

      If there isn’t a Trump on the ballot in 2024, and if the Republican party hasn’t been purged of Rinos and nevertrumpers, why would any of the 94% Republicans who support PDJT, vote R in 2024, or ever again?

      to developing the AmericaFirst media conglomerate. Shut down Faux in a heartbeat, by providing true conservative alternative programming.

    These last words come to me as if Sundance has a twinkle in his eye .. as if he knows something we don’t. We don’t hear ANYTHING about the masses of people and how they work that must be involved in gathering the information required to prepare, make, and execute these deals.

    From our perspective, what PDJT is accomplishing towers above any other man in the history of the world. It is miraculous. It has to be — or else there is much much more than meets the eye. There is a larger, invisible team, somehow operating at a more massive scale.

    Even Sundance (whoever he is — a pseudonym, must be a team) The clarity and accuracy of prediction of this site are uncanny.

    Yet both Trump and his operations and Sundance are simple, and guided by simple truths: Like Vince Lombardi talking about the basics of football, like and alcoholic following a simple formula of a daily routine to a life direction change, like a parent teaching a child to stick to basic principles of goodness of character. Like NASA engineers applying basic engineering principles over and over.

    With practice, you can hit a baseball with the “sweet spot” of the bat and the swing with consistency. Our Lion has been swinging the bat a long time in many environments.

    Maybe the success of Trump (and of Sundance) is a deep, practiced faith in solid universal principles. Maybe there is a much larger organization. Maybe it is purely a miraculous intervention from a merciful God.

    Whatever it is, I am grateful, and have a new hope due to our Lion and our Sundance.

They stopped being “our” companies long ago. They are now Wall Street multinationals who could not care less about America or American workers. Witness the ones who even moved their headquarters to other countries.

        There is now a shift taking place. Companies who move manufacturing back to the US will do well. Those who do not will do poorly, both in sales and in their stock prices. As for the multinationals who have abandoned our country, well, everyone can decide for themselves who to invest in, and which funds to invest in. And market prices of their stocks will be a bit haywire as it sorts itself out.

    China and the EU have devalued their currency in an effort to block the impacts from President Trump and the ‘America First’ trade policy.

    Because those currencies are pegged against the dollar, the resulting effect is a rising dollar value.

    This paragraph doesn’t make sense to me.
    If the Euro (or China Yen) is pegged to the US $, then their value would go up and down with the dollar.
    Here is an explanation of what currency pegging is…

    A dollar peg is when a country maintains its currency’s value at a fixed exchange rate to the U.S. dollar. The country’s central bank controls the value of its currency so that it rises and falls along with the dollar. The dollar’s value fluctuates because it’s on a floating exchange rate.

    There are at least 66 countries that either peg their currency to the dollar or use the dollar as their own legal tender. The dollar is so popular because it’s the world’s reserve currency. World leaders gave it that status at the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement.

    Perhaps the paragraph should read “because those currencies are NOT pegged against the dollar”

        That defeats the purpose of pegging BKR.
        Countries use pegging to give some certainty and confidence to their market and potential foreign investors.
        Pegging is usually done by countries that have experienced turbulent economic times. Places such as Chile or Argentina for example.
        No one would invest in building a widget factory in say….Zimbabwe, if their investment is inflated away with 1000% inflation.
        So those countries peg their currency against a strong reserve currency such as the US Dollar. Often they’ll use a basket of strong currencies, such as the US dollar, Japanese Yen, European Euro and the UK pound.

    The scope of President Trump’s vision is indeed breathtaking. We basically have to come here to find any real journalism on it, however. Are there any others who even approach Sundance’s level of reportage and analysis? (The same is true of Spy-Gate, of course.)

    There must be some good reporting and analysis elsewhere of this economic earthquake, no? I mean the kind that doesn’t make your eyes glaze over. Any nominees?

    “The EU, Asia, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, China, Russia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the World Bank, Iran, U.S. Congress, Wall Street, the Big Club, Lobbyists, Hollywood, Corporate Media (foreign and domestic), and the ankle-biters in Never Trump”

    I would also add to this list Silicon Valley (Google, Facebook, etc), United Nations, WTO, the Supreme Court (John Roberts), The Federal Reserve (Jay Powell), the GOPe, Leftist Billionaires (George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, etc), FBI, CIA, DNI, and foreign intelligence services (5 Eyes)

    It’s remarkable the battle one man has to take on to make the changes he trying to make. He battling over 75 years of institutions and ways of thinking, yet he remains undaunted, steadfast, and determine as he was the day he descended down the escalator in Trump Tower!

    To say I admire this man is the understatement of the century! It’s truly stunning how far he’s come but also how still far he must go to MAGA! We all need to support this man to the hilt in 2020!

    This is the only relationship I really paid serious attention to at this G7. And I must say it went as well as could be expected. Our President went to a multinational conference of sneering globalists, and got a lot of productive bilateral business done. It is all coming together quite nicely.

    I think the broader world is finally coming to grips with the fact that PDJT is here to stay, and so is America First. They may hate it, and will continue to resist it, but Sundance is right. This Grand Reset must be done and is about five decades overdue. The final leg of the Cold War was the only reason to extend the earlier post-War arrangements to 1990. We are subsidizing Europe’s socialist fantasies. Thank goodness we finally have a President as strong as PDJT to execute this corrective sea change.

    Johnson must certainly know that PDJT and America are there for the UK when they break out of the EU jail. And that the future will be bright for the UK if they do.

    Now Johnson must go back and fight through his own cabal of establishment, globalist, remainder MPs, and get the job done — just as PDJT has had to do here. I now believe with Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party at his neck, and a very clear green light from PDJT, Johnson will finally abandon Boris First, and deliver a good Brexit. And that will start the whole rotten EU structure tumbling down.

    Just my two cent take on this weekend.

    Now I know why Trump went to G7 and why all these non-G7’s showed up. He sure as hell did not go over there to hear Macron talk about Global Warming and all his other Libtard “feel good” BS.

    Trump went over there to make future deals with all these guys while seeing if he could collect the money owed by all the freeloader “dead beats”. By the time Trump gets back to the US, They’ll all be scratching their heads asking, “Wow! Who was that guy riding through here on that white horse”?

    When the marxist obama was elected, i was scared out of my mind for my country.
    I thought “this might be the end.”
    I became a prepper, stocked up and stockpiled.
    I held my breath during the 2016 election fearing that clinton would finish
    what obama had started- the destruction of America.
    Then, like a miracle, Donald Trump took control, and steered us away
    from the precipice. I proclaimed to all I know “if he keeps half of his promises
    America is going to be okay.”
    Donald Trump has exceeded my expectations, and those of others like me
    by keeping nearly all of his promises, and delivering great things he didn’t
    even promise during the election.
    I daresay Donald J. Trump will be remembered as one of the greatest Presidents
    in America’s history. I say that with the utmost sincerity.
    America remains ‘One nation under GOD’ because of the miracle named Donald J. Trump.
    AMEN.

      My daughter was saying she might bow out of voting in 2020. She’s not all that interested in politics (most aren’t at her age). I didn’t push (it’s early yet). I DID tell her that at the minimum, she can say (from her vote in 2016) that she voted for the greatest president in history since George Washington. ‘Quite an honor and privilege.

    Whenever you wonder why our schools have been dumbed down, why our country is saturated with the third world and why the only thing the media talks about is racism, abortion and social justice, look no further than this piece by Sundance

    An intelligent, engaged and free people are the enemy of the pillage of our wealth that’s been going on for decades. The illiterate, the brainwashed and the perpetually angry / easily distracted are what’s needed to keep the scam going

    President Trump isn’t just trying to right a wrong, he’s trying to wake Americans up to the outrageous scam perpetrated by what was once our government

    He’s showing us how we’ve totally lost control of what is ours by birthright

    We haven’t been citizens under self governance, we’ve been pawns in a massive shell game, and we’re close to losing everything

    It’s not just about Trump turning it all around, it’s about Americans getting smart again after he leaves office

      Exactly right! One of the reasons President Trump has been so successful in office is he is knowledgeable. He knows how things work, has experience doing things in many industries and works his tail off. Contrast that to the normal politicians that get elected. AOC for example, Zero smarts about how anything works, only experience is as a waitress (and can’t even do that well) and gets to congress and does nothing besides being a worldwide embarrassment to our country. Stop electing lazy, stupid morons!

      PDJT is resolute on his agenda and his philosophy: Win-Win is the key to healthy long lasting relationships that are sustainable and lowest in maintennance. Each nation has a duty to serve it’s citizens, not its leaders.

      The actions of PDJT resonate with the souls of every human being on the planet, because they are in line with the purpose of our Maker. They are in line with the beliefs of the founders of this grand experiment, who patterned it after careful study of history and coupled it with a faith in God bourne of lifes hardships and abuse by the King and the Aristocrats.

      His goal is to win — not for himself, but for us.

    I have every reason to believe he was right in the middle of the massive illegal spy operation run by Brennan and Clapper and was actually the one who authorized it in his position as Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.

    Rice was the obama dirt-bag requesting the GHCQ to do it and an equal co-conspirator with Brennan.

    P Trump is trying and often succeeding in Making America Great in everything he does from border security to G7 trade deals and much more. He is trying to bring added benefits to all Americans at all income levels and not just the rich. But if there is any truth to the poll below, many Americans might not be feeling it depending on whom they mean as the present political establishment. If it refers to the stonewalling and incompetent Dem House, Dem governors and Dem mayors, I get their point. But POTUS is a free agent that is also being opposed by the various “political establishments” mentioned below.

    An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll (August 10 to 14, 2019),claims “70 % of Americans said they feel mad “because our political system seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington…Four years ago, 39 % of Republicans and 44 % of Democrats were very frustrated with the political establishment. Now, 29 % of Republicans and 54 % of Democrats remain very frustrated with it.” (Breitbart.) The increase in Dem frustration is likely just more sore losing or TDS but hopefully some is aimed at the elected Dems they voted in.

    President Trump is the first and only president who said: “enough”, and prior politicians who didn’t stop the process were “stupid” etc. etc. Obviously, he is 100% correct.

    There is a simple counter argument to this process.
    A Google maps based initiative so speak will suffice.

    What happens if the lights literally turn off in America? And their is no whipping boy to base the economic scale to absorbing of the worlds GDP?
    And all that we ask is, fair and recipical trade to ending the ‘Atlantic Charter’ understandings to the Marshall Plan.
    On one hand is the observation, that the Marshall Plan should have served its need by now and the World has turn the page verses a World that NOT learnt a damned thing and has been weaponized against Liberty.

    The World’s order of Peace in the aftermath of WWII was built on trust of American Goodwill that was counterposed by the Marxist ideology. It served the World well. However, I for one believe there should be a measure to this world Order, before it is declared NEW.

    The DC swamp of corruption is undermining that Goodwill to only one end.

    But I digress…

    By any standard, Trump is a superlative President, his Administration’s geopolitical-economic re-assertion of American interests is the definitive end of the 72-year post-WW II anti-colonial/Cold War era. (“Anti-colonial” because Europe and Russia’s imperial days are long-since past, superseded by China’s slithering Belt-and-Road predations, aiming to secure New Mandarinate supply-chains by shackling downstream polities in virtual debt peonage.)

    Most certainly, Rats’ literally crazed reactions to Pres. Trump’s near-revolutionary spectrum of long-term objectives reflects not “loyal opposition” but an entrenched clerisy’s status anxiety. A free-swinging man-of-action, DJT is the absolute antithesis of warbling ethnic/gender/racial verbalizers, showing up MzBill’s bug-eyed, gum-flapping, suitably tinctured WOC-a-babies for the sputtering gutterballs they are.

    Over the next five years, B&D’s Anglospheric solidarity allied with churning national constituencies, Trump’s remake of the Federal Judiciary, studied dismantling of Rats’ lurking-menace Police State consequent on educational apocalypse plus lumbering administrative/regulatory apparats, will rejuvenate Franklin’s “American Experiment” rendered moribund from Taft’s Administration (1912).
