Kudlow Discusses USMCA Ratification Against Backdrop of Pelosi’s Impeachment…

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow discusses the forecast for ratification of the USMCA against the backdrop of Pelosi’s announced focus on impeachment.

Additionally, Kudlow discusses the status of Chinese trade negotiations and the recently affirmed trade deal with Japan.

.

 WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives is proceeding with efforts regarding the Trump administration’s trade deal with Mexico and Canada, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday, saying House Democrats had discussed the pact a day earlier.

“We’re moving ahead on the U.S-Mexico-Canada agreement,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “We’re, again, hoping to be on a continuing path to ‘yes’” to approve the deal aimed at replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). (link)

“Deal”? ….THAT was before you smothered yourself in shoe polish, Justin!

    They’re moving forward with USMCA in an attempt to counter any accusations that they aren’t doing anything and just want to impeach. This might be the price Pelosi pays for winning support for impeachment from moderate Dems.

      Most likely as stated above, there has been nothing accomplished by the House since the Dems took back control except impeach, impeach, impeach! So since this has been ratified by Mexico and seems to be good for the Canadians, it is a no-brainer to get this out of the door. No discussion needed. Just vote. Then back to impeachment. Not a winning strategy, IMO.

    Pelosi is between a rock and a hard place. She cannot remove Schiff and Nadler, who are hell bent on impeachment with support from AOC+3, Al Green, Maxine Waters, and the like—whether or not she approves.

    She tried the fiat move Tuesday to prevent her 40:plus ‘newish’ reps from districts that PDJT won in 2016 from having to vote on starting formal impeachment proceedings. Minority leader McCarthy used his ‘privileged resolution’ invalid impeachment gambit last night to force a vote to table his resolution—in effect a vote to proceed with the irregular impeachment process she blessed Tuesday. 231 Dems voted to table, i.e. proceed with the process. Able but three who did not vote. That by name forced Dem vote puts her House majority in grave jeopardy in 2020.

    So passing USMCA is an attempt to save her speakership while deflecting the ‘do nothing except crazed impeachment’ criticism PDJT is rightfully leveling. She really has no choice now, since PDJT can unilaterally cancel NAFTA if she doesn’t get the replacement done. She knows he knows he has her trapped into handing him this win, and that must be grating her dentures.

    Whether Pelosi is incompetent because of arteriosclerosis, incipient Alzheimer’s, or because of a low I.Q., or some combination thereof, the result is the same: a severe inability to think logically, morally, and an inability therefore to recognize the insanity and the Orwellian DoubleThink mentality which are now hallmarks of her so-called political party.

    That she and other patently incompetent, divorced-from-reality DEMS are continually re-elected is an indictment of democracy. There are times when the majority – or a large plurality – go completely awry, and if you need an more proof, three names will prove it: Alexandria Occasional Cortex.

    When people are too busy to pay attention, the vacuum will be filled by any piece of trash, by any old potato-chip bag blowing down the street.

    Dave Rubin and the leader of the People’s Party, Maxime Bernier, are debating in Canada sunday evening. Every Canadian newspaper has denounced the People’s as a racist, far right, extremist group that should not be allowed on Canadian soil. This was all Antifa needed to hear and they have promised a very real confrontation; you know the rest. This small event, seemingly, could actually become a turning point in Canadian history. The country is currently hamstrung with perceptions and distractive rhetoric. True to form, every Canadian paper adopted CNN, MSNBC distortion of the facts regarding President Trump’s conversation with Ukraine this morning. Just another i.e. of why, in truth, the People’s Party of Canada may, in fact, represent the only chance the Canadian economy has to survive.

      Well, I am so Fu*kin’ Sick of all the Socialist Liberal Crap up here in Canada since Turdeau was placed in power by the Globalists, that I AM voting for Bernier & his PPC!
      After seeing that Bernier is NOT being allowed to participate in any Political Debates up here & he is not even mentioned as a candidate in ANY MSM news, I fully support him, as ALL the other candidates are the same & will just let things continue as they are here in Canada!
      Maybe we will have a “miracle”, but I think it will be hard to change anything up here, as we do not have an Electoral College based system as you have in the States.
      I am hoping that Donald J Trump can change America for the better & it rubs off on the rest of the World! (other than us Trump Supporters of course!)

    I was thinking earlier today about all the BS President Donald J. Trump has to put up with on a daily basis & it doesn’t seem to phase him at all! I am not that naive’ to think that it does not affect him at all, BUT in spite of everything, he is getting the job done as far as what he promised when he was running for the job.

    I have been following Mr. Trump since the early 80’s & I always felt that he would excel at anything he tried, & he has not disappointed me at all!

    “This is not simply another 4-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.” I used to have this as my Gmail Email Signature, but I was getting a lot of hate up here in Canada, so I stopped using it, for the good of my own health & well-being!

    SO IMO, I feel that Donald J. Trump will go down in History as “the greatest Man that we will know” in our lifetimes, next to Jesus!

    What the average dumb democrat does not understand, What happens to their retirement program after Trump is impeached. The values of these assets will plummet at the very least 50%. Yes, they will get their most wanted recession and in fact a depression without Trump at the helm. Democrats trying to get rid of Trump makes as much sense as refusing a glass of water because you can’t swim.

    The Dems have now held the House for just under a year. What do they have to show for it? All they have done is engage in TDS on steroids and empower the crazy socialist wing of their party. Pelosi obviously understands the politics involved don’t favor her party next year and desperately wants to look like some legislative action, benefiting union members, has taken place.

    She obviously heard one of Trump’s operatives state the other night “If you want to know what Pelosi will do tomorrow, just listen to what AOC has to say tonight.” That must really stick in her craw and she knows she has to do something to counter that growing perception that she is but a figurehead as Speaker.
