USMCA Gains Bipartisan Support in House – Senate Leader Mitch Jinping Says Not-so-Fast, Impeachment First…

It’s funny to watch this transparently predictable stuff play out in real time.

After Pelosi gives the nod for USMCA ratification in the House, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell declares he will not allow Senate support until he extracts his impeachment indulgency fees.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday the U.S. Senate would not take up the USMCA trade deal next week before congressional recess.

The Republican leader said that trade deal likely will come up in the Senate after the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. McConnell said the Senate does hope to tackle the defense and spending bills next week. (link)

Too funny…. and way too predictable.

Now, if you are wondering what the heck is going on, it might be worthwhile to remember the question CTH presented about this dynamic last week:

“So what will the White House need to give McConnell… or what will McConnell’s ask be, in order to protect the office of the president?  Here’s where you have to remember Tom Donohue and the Wall St priorities.

McConnell (subtext Donohue) would prefer the confrontation with China be eliminated and the tariffs dropped.  Is that too big an “ask”?  Would the White House sell/trade McConnell a China deal for better impeachment terms?

All of these are questions worth pondering now, because there’s no doubt they are being discussed amid those in DC sitting on the comfy Corinthian wing-backs and gleefully rubbing their hands around a well polished mahogany table” (read more)

Majority Leader McConnell is not about to lose the opportunity to gain his traditional indulgence fees for his legislative work.  Passing the USMCA before the Senate trail of President Trump would be giving up leverage.  It would be akin to working for free.

Both China and Wall Street have been pouring money into K-Street lobbyists.  There’s a boatload of extraction available before any Senator should be forced to take a final position. Slow down there cowboy, the check-writers are lined up at the doors.

First, delaying USMCA benefits China.  Beijing has invested heavily in Mitch McConnell and that level of alignment needs to be carefully navigated.

Second, passage of the USMCA hurts the Wall Street multinationals.  Those multinational corporations have paid the legislative brokers, K-Street lobbyists, to defend their interests. The multinationals who were ignoring President Trump’s multiple warnings, likely need more time to reposition their assets.

Third, the Wall Street hedgefunds have also paid K-Street.  If USMCA assists the decoupling from China (it does), those hedgefunds need time to extract their financial position from the Stock Market.   **nudge/nudge, wink/wink** We’re talking “folding money” here. Trillions at stake.  If you’re in the market… position yourself accordingly.

All of these trade opportunities are tied together.  The impeachment effort is the Alamo for a global financial network.   Imagine how much money McConnell can make from each of these issues?  (1) Impeachment is worth billions. (2) USMCA is worth billions.  (3)U.S-China is worth billions.  McConnell cannot move quickly without giving up some major financial opportunities. Slowing it all down makes it easier to indulge.

Each of the three issues above is worth some major cash; each must be taken individually.

….You give me the impeachment rules, and you can take the budget and trade checks, deal?….

      Because of Sundance’s ability to distill down this system of corruption amid a morass of media diversion and distraction, we can see McConnell’s actions clearly and in context. These people are beyond graft and corruption. McConnell is a man of greed, without conscience, who steals the fruits of our labor by selling out his own nation and our essential liberties – one sliver at a time.

      We have no representative government. No laws except what men like McConnell feel they should be. I just wonder how many Americans see though the donkey and elephants treachery.

      In the end it may only be that we have to take our country back.

After promising a “weeks and weeks” long trial of President Trump, tying up the Jackass Party, Cowan show hopefuls as well as Biden, suddenly McTurtle wants a one-and-done dismissal by the Senate so that it can be shoved under the carpet??? The President wants a full trial, with witnesses galore, so that he can finally have his say in the public eye. But Gramnesty and The Turtle don’t. Why? Possibly because they, too, are complicit in Ukraine corruption and they don’t want to be outed, either? In Graham’s case, he and his ol’ buddy, McCain, are well-documented as hero’s of the former corrupt Ukraine government. The Ukraine was a bottomless piggy bank for all of these hypocrites, Dem and RINO alike.

    The President deserves and must demand a full Senate trial.

    The U.S. Constitution gives him that right.

    He has been defamed for more than three years, had vicious lies repeatedly told about him and his family, has had the wickedness of ALL of Washington DC thrown at him, and has the lying media throughout the world against him. He has been betrayed by the FBI, CIA and Pentagon brass.

    He should not permit a shortening of HIS DEFENSE. He needs to throw everything he has at the crooked politicians in Washington DC in a public trial. Anything less will just embolden the scoundrels. He has a chance to expose every one of the bribed Senators and Congress crooks in BOTH PARTIES.

    If President Trump truly wants to “Drain the Swamp,” bringing overwhelming evidence and witnesses to expose their criminal conduct into his lengthy trial can do the job.

    Anything less just allows his enemies to rise and launch more attacks and more impeachments.

    Without a full trial, he suffers from unanswered slanders reverberating forever, across history.

    As the great African war leader Shaka Zulu said, “You never leave your enemy alive in the field.”

    The President’s trial may be the final battle for America. Let it be epic, without mercy and completely destructive of his enemies even if it brings the entire federal government crashing down into a pile of rubble.

    Otherwise, there is nothing of a completely corrupt America left worth saving.

Note the overall lack of public outrage of sitting US Senators concerning the sham the Democrats are displaying in the house. I’m afraid many of their techniques will carry over into the senate.

      • I blame McConnell (and McCain & Schumer) for killing Healthcare reform, immigration reform, the Wall, and he refuses to go into recess & allow Trump to make recess appointments w/o McConnell’s approval. Plus the coup had early boosts from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence where McConnell could have exposed the plot by allowing James Wolfe to be charged for leaking the Page FISA.

        McConnell, Schumer, Pelosi & McCarthy are the best at what they do, and that’s why they occupy the leadership positions. From the top of the dung heap, they control the flow of $, which comes from CoC and other global interests. Their work is like the board of a major public corporation, protecting steady stable growth for shareholders (donors) with no unexpected surprises or shocks (like Trump) to their system. PDJT is a wrench in their finely tuned $ siphoning machine.

    Mitchy jinping is overvaluing his position.
    Typical of the DC swampians, Mitchy expects President Trump to crumple.
    A) The value of rescuing America from China and the globalists is far larger than an impeachment trial.

    B) Mitchy’s impeachment trade does not really offer President Trump anything of value.

    C) President Trump can 1) seek SCOTUS determination about the legality of the democrat sham impeachment; 2) wait till Chief Justice John Roberts serves as judge at the impeachment trial. Either choice places Mitchy’s corruption on notice of getting outed.
    The longer the public observes Mitchy pushing Donohue’s desires while self serving Mitchy’s desires, the uglier the public will get.

    D) Every action taken by Congressional Democrats and Senators to harm the Constitution can be taken as wilful negation of their oaths. They should be tried and impeached themselves for their perfidy.

    E) This Administration, Congress and Senate will be demonized for centuries. Mitchy, Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff will all become examples of incompetence, greed, arrogance and sheer corruptness.

    F) Basically, Mitchy and scheming Schumer are welcome to join Pelosi, Nadler and Schiffy in their plummets to their public nadir in deep pit of corruption.

    G) President trump should have video and audio of all communications from Mitchy. Showing the public those efforts of extortion would cleanse much.

      “”What does USMCA leverage get him in that endeavor?””

      It may be worth looking at USMAC in light of the existential battle Trump has taken on… global governance. The globalists have been at this 100+ years, They knew global governance would have to unravel sovereignty and nationalism (e.g. EU). Most importantly they had to take down American nationalism while extracting the wealth of her citizens, and the distribution of our intellectual property to the nations whose peoples are under control (e.g. China).

      USMCA is one battle to reverse the flow.

      Donald Trump is leading an historic and complex battle on many fronts, while we keep electing and reelecting hundreds like McConnell and Pelosi. Our politicians get rich doing the globalists’ dirty work, but they also control the the legislative agenda which Donald Trump needs to rebuild America and to unravel the globalist minions deeply embedded throughout our government.

      We could do our part by removing them.

    Too many RINOS hate PT and are owned so this is there last opportunity even if the Articles are flimsy at best. 20 RINO Brutuses will vote to impeach before anyone can dig deeper into their money laundering and kickback schemes. Too many hands IMO are dirty.

    Im sure that PDJT is looking forward to this as well and has it game planned. These fools may be big fish in their ponds but PDJT is a shark in complete control of all he surveys.

    There’s still a part of me that thinks this won’t go to the Senate. The Dims have made their point.. lousy as it was, but their base probably already thinks Trump has been impeached.

    I don’t think they want to have the trial in the Senate and all that will be exposed. Think not only Biden, their frontrunner, but the wiretapping, that they used as examples of ‘Trump lied” for what? 3 years?? Then there is Schiff.. the WB, and all that they did. This will tie in with the wrongs of the Obama administration as well. That news is seeping out from the IG report. A few more comments from Barr should do it. (Bet you won’t see him interviewed on the MSM anymore, LOL)

    So.. look for something to happen to keep it from the Senate. And Trump should have a little pull-aside with Lindsay, and say.. “I demand exoneration from facts, not from politics. Do it my way. “

    Just an interesting parallel observation, with respect to McConnell’s positioning on behalf of China and US Multi-Nationals. I like to watch foreign markets, to correlate finance with political posturing such as this one. For the last few days the Chinese markets have been on a rather interesting up-tick, which I found interesting since there has been little in the way of positive WTO, IMF, Trade Rumors and Chinese Government QE discussion.

    Key point to remember: Mitch McConnell is up for reelection in 2020, so the timing is fortuitous in that he’s about to face the voters and is transitioning into “campaign Mitch” the rock-ribbed conservative loyal supporter of Our Beloved President Trump – who carried Kentucky by 30 points in 2016, and has been very popular in this coal state.

    I think the President will choose a quick tossing of this sham impeachment because that’s the best option right now.

      Not only that – the Senate GOP also wants a quick trial (assuming the articles of impeachment pass the House): It could very well be a summary dismissal with prejudice on day 1. The charges are so poorly defined (for example not specifying what benefit the president allegedly received, from the not precisely defined acts) the President’s attorneys can successfully argue IMO no crime is even alleged, and even if the prosecution proved everything it still wouldn’t constitute “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    This sentence in sundance’s article caused me to think about McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao and her heritage.:
    “McConnell (subtext Donohue) would prefer the confrontation with China be eliminated and the tariffs dropped.”
    McConnell not taking up the USMCA trade deal indicates to me that we have a new version of a 1971 movie here folks. This one is called “The Chinese Connection”.
    Elaine Chao’s heritage:

    Elaine Lan Chao was born in Taipei, Taiwan, on March 26, 1953. She was the oldest of six girls. Her family had come to Taiwan in 1949, fleeing the Communist takeover of the Chinese mainland, and they had connections to two Chinese families who owned shipping companies. In 1958 Chao’s father, James, came to the United States, taking a job with one of those companies.
    source: https://www.notablebiographies.com/supp/Supplement-Ca-Fi/Chao-Elaine.html

    “shipping companies”…hmmm

    Now read this VERY interesting article about Elaine Chao’s father’s shipping company, the monies that have poured into the McConnell household, and McConnell’s connections to China:
    https://www.thenation.com/article/mitch-mcconnells-freighted-ties-shadowy-shipping-company/

    It’s all about the money.
    Just like Alfred said in the1947 movie “Miracle on 34th Street”: “Make a buck, make a buck”:

    It seems to me, McConnell is punishing the Democrats for the impeachment crap.

And you will face their anger at the ballot box.

    My position is PDJT needs to get this Impeachment BS behind asap… What ever it takes… Censure or immediate dismissal but do not draw it out…

    There is now way I would trust a Jury compiled of the US Senate to decide my fate… Caesar trusted his Senate and we all know how that worked out for him…

    We don’t need another Et Tu? Brute, moment…

    PT does not need a long trial to exonerate himself… I believe he indeed does have the goods on many Senators and should let each and everyone of them know in no uncertain terms that if they don’t fall in line and behave there will be hell to pay… Hold on the the “Chits” as a heavily leveraged Senator makes for for a compliant & polite Senator… If an impeachment does arrive have them kick it to the curb immediate…

    Nothing that would come out of a long, drawn out Senate Trial, will move the needle of public opinion one tiny bit at all…. The 40% of the morons that support the dems will not ever change… And the remaining 60% already know what a sham the last 3 years have been… If anything exposing any Republican Senators as dirty will only enable the dems to potentially damage the slim margin we currently hold in the Senate…

    We don’t need to call Hunter Biden to ask him about his dirty dealings, his baby mamma is already doing that for us and it will come out… Sleepy Joe at best only has a shelf life with an expiration date until November and most likely less…

    In the meantime Barr, Durham and Rudy will carry the water for us, this spring and summer heading into November… Not sure how much pain they will bring to bear on the bastards but it will be more than we would get out of the Senate. Can you imagine the Trump rallies with new info dropping every couple days… They will be epic…

    PDJT should file all the proof away until after November 3… And then use it at his discretion going forward to finish implementing his MAGA/KAG agenda… Keep all the corrupt bastards on a short leash like the bunch of neutered poodles they are…

    AS Sun Tzu would say, he can always slay the bastards at at time and place of his choosing and not let the turtle or piglosi dictate the terms….

    For me I’m sure it’s been 50 years, at least. What’s more, they were young women.
