Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and NEC Director Larry Kudlow Discuss G7 Trade and Economics…

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow discuss the ongoing trade and economic discussions amid the G7 summit in  France.  The G7 was originally formed to address economic issues amid the top industrial economies. President Trump has been trying to return to that focus.

Secretary Mnuchin did a good job knocking back the narrative gnats.

    I sincerely thank Sundance for doing such distasteful work: wading and curating every Sunday through the insufferable MSM swamp interviews and TV bilge.

    Other than the lovely Maria B, I simply refuse to watch this Sunday dreck anymore.

      Oldersoul, you are so right. TCH is now our daily newspaper with the latest, including investigative reporting. And, better than this, one delivered many times per day. Humor and satire included.

      I used to have a number of subscriptions; I feel privileged to contribute almost montlhy to CTH. I hope others do, too. The more resources, the more the ability to investigate. Thanks, Sundance, for your amazing, brilliant efforts.

      The question that gets slammed against PDJT trade tariff policies are ‘At what cost to the American citizen?’ J.C, ask the Americans across America that have lost their jobs, lost their pensions and lost their homes because of the POLS allowing China et al free access.

          They can’t comprehend delayed gratification for longer term national benefit. They also cannot avoid exploiting what they see as an opportunity to attack the President. They are completely consumed with this need. Moreover, they do not care if America wins the trade war; in most cases they are rooting for China.

            Agree, incrementalist approach to authoritarian state.
            The problem is deciding when to initiate the
            “Over my dead body.!” part,
            I’m not qualified to decide, but am willing when called.

        so true budklatsch.

        A guy I’ve known for years is on FB saying that SO MANY of our products come from China that we would probably be naked without all the Chinese clothing.

        Ergo we MUST buy from our multi-national overlords and their cheap-labor Chinese friends.

        I reject that as stupid on it’s face. It would be like saying we MUST buy fast food ONLY from MacDonalds. No we DON’T . There ARE other choices !

        The same is true with trade. Today President Trump and Prime Minister Abe just announced a new trade deal between the U.S. and Japan that has been in the works for a year now.

        It is another factor that mitigates the ‘At what cost to the American consumer ? ‘ question that media concern-trolls throw out there as they defend their globalist buddies.

        I lost an entire career due to political bull shit in the 80s and politicians pulling all funds from addictions programs at hospitals and free standing centers. Programs that were making a huge differences to addicts. I am alive today because of 3 of these programs. Many people died when these programs were terminated because they were unable to get treatment. Congress and State politicians in my judgement are Criminals putting money in their pockets at the cost of citizens lives.

      Me too. The obnoxious questioners yesterday on Fox News on my car radio wouldn’t stop badgering the interviewee about why PDJT failed to anticipate China pushing back. Clearly some millennial who believes “we’ll if it’s hard, the president should have saved us from it?” Swatting gnats is exactly what it felt like on every channel. I had to turn on Johnny Cash so I’d stop looking like a crazy woman yelling at the radio.

      The President making himself available for Chopper Pressers
      (Chopper Pressers are the best Pressers… 🤔 I read that somewhere)

      Right where they belong, imho…

      Off camera, out of sight and sounding like they’re outa their collective minds asking for declarative answers to “What IF” questions.

      A NoCM, well thought out question..
      Mr President/Mr/Madame Secretary/…,
      “What IF” the Iranians (aided by Boris and Natasha) convinced the Martians (oh, almost forgot.. rory.. Stemming from concern over The President’s tweets) to launch a strategically coordinated planetary strike because… ya know… “Orange Man Bad.. 🤔.. and stuff”… what would you do!?”

      Hoped for NoCM Response…
      I would “DEFINATELY DO” (This, Dat and the other thing)

      NoCM, “Well, there you have it.

      NoCM… John DOLT here in the studio, GREAT REPORTING!! Nice yob!
      “Did we hear that right? This, Dat AND the other Thing?.. Really!?

      NoCM, “You heard right, John. Right outa the horses mouth. DISTURBING Revelation!” Back to you…

      John DOLT, “Yes, NoCM, VERY DISTURBING!!

      John DOLT, “Professor Metuu… What do you make of this?!?… I mean… In light of, Dr Someguys, reasoned and measured response to the “Indesputable” reporting from, NoCM, coupled with my unwarranted “Pearl Clutching,… How BAD IS THIS!?”

      Professor Metuu… “John, this is The Beginning of The END!! It may already be too late to save our Global Utopia.. 🤔.. I meant Democracy! Irrational and destructive decision making like this, without EVEN CONSULTING the Globalist Controlled Media (of which I’m on board 😉)… Is.. Is.. Is.. ummm..

      They’re Gonna do This, Dat AND the other thing… And they don’t care how you feel about it! But we, here at the local branch of the Globalist Controlled Media, DO!!

      Share these “Truths” and you Feelings with “Friends” on Social Media. (Ignore the fact that this was a hypothetical scenario (don’t know what that means do ya 😉, snicker) and isn’t actually happening; nor is EVER LIKELY TO happen)… Just go with it… After all…

          At least here (and a few other sites) I have the ability to make up my own mind. Hear from all sides. Weight the facts. Make my own decision.
          On “tv”… imho… That decision is Made FOR You.

          The Truman Show

          Truman’s fear of leaving this invented world, once he realizes it is a fraud, is similarly like our own reluctance to break our symbiotic relationship with media. His growing suspicion that what he is seeing is staged for his benefit is our own suspicions as the media-fabricated illusions around us begin to break down. And the producer-director of this stage-set world, who blocks Truman’s effort to escape, is the giant media companies, news organizations, and media-politicians that have a stake in keeping us surrounded by falsehood, and are prepared to lure us with rewards as they block efforts at reforming the system.


          There’s such a lot of world to see…

    Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin is and was my favorite pick by President Trump. I kept telling my family and friends he’d serve his position very well. As has NHCD Mr. Kudlow. The above video is fantastic on demonstrating my support of both men.

    While the US Media wastes everybody’s time, Trump has announced the deal with Japan, announced an upcoming deal with the post Brexit UK and told Justin to shape up!

    If Poland and Hungary were in the G7, you know he’d make deals with too.

    And if Russia were back in the G8, where it belongs, you know we’d have a deal with Putin as well.

    Ah hah! I knew I was right!

    Mnuchin said exactly the point I made the other day about POTUS’ tweet “ordering companies to leave China”, as the narrative went.

    Mnuchin emphasized, PT ordered companies to LOOK, and Mnuchin also said we have already been seeing companies leave, and the ones who havent yet left, have already started looking.

    And then, when the MSM goes nuts, PT followed up with the MOAB.

    Basically says, “Hey idiots, its called the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977. Look it up.”

    mic drop

    POTUS Master Troll, playing them like a fiddle.

    PT showcasing the fake news aspect and their general ignorance at the same time!
