Day One Schedule – President Trump Delivers Opening Remarks – Davos, World Economic Forum – 5:30am Livestream…

President Trump traveled overnight to Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum.  [Livestream Links and Daily Schedule Below] I found it very interesting that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not on the Dec. delegation list.

The U.S. Delegation includes: Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin; Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross; Labor Secretary, Eugene Scalia; Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao; U.S. Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer; Under Secretary for Growth, Energy and Environment (DoS), Keith Krach; Asst to the President, Ivanka Trump; Asst. to the President, Jared Kushner; and Asst. to the President / Deputy for Policy Coordination, Christopher Liddell.

The 2020 Davos economic conference will be a little more important to watch this year (as it was in 2017) due to the completed U.S. Trade Agreements (S Korea, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and China) and the predicted focus for the Trump administration to pivot from Asia to the EU and U.K. for the next critical phase of the ‘America-First’ global trade reset.

There will likely be a great deal of attention upon the opening remarks by President Trump scheduled to be delivered at 5:30am ET / 11:30am Switzerland.

~ Day One Concludes ~

Previously Announced members of the Presidential Delegation:

1. The Honorable Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury (Lead)
2. The Honorable Wilbur Ross, Secretary of Commerce
3. The Honorable Eugene Scalia, Secretary of Labor
4. The Honorable Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation
5. The Honorable Robert Lighthizer, United States Trade Representative
6. The Honorable Keith Krach, Under Secretary for Growth, Energy and the Environment, Department of State
7. The Honorable Ivanka Trump, Assistant to the President and Advisor to the President
8. The Honorable Jared Kushner, Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor to the President
9. The Honorable Christopher Liddell, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Coordination.

As a result of the resounding conservative victory in the U.K. election, a pending Brexit, a favorable $7.5 billion WTO ruling and USTR Lighthizer’s new $2.4 billion EU targeted tariff program against France, and the administration has significant advantages going into a trade discussion with the EU in 2020.

Team USA has the world’s strongest economy, the largest market, legally bolstered tariff authority and a quiver full of powerful economic arrows.

Meanwhile Team EU has: (1) the UK leaving; (2) severe drops in German industrial manufacturing; (3) a shrinking French economy; (4) yellow-vests in the streets; and (5) demands for greater economic autonomy from many key member states.

Overlay Germany, France and Italy large economy challenges such as: their promise to meet NATO obligations on defense spending; their attachment to the strangling Paris Climate Treaty; growing dependence on Russia for energy; looming 5G issues from German contracts with Huawei; and the EU’s collective economic position is precarious at best.

Yeah, they are all going to be paying attention.

            I recently flew, my first flight in over a decade and only the 5th in my lifetime. I don’t like flying, only do it when I have to. I went through the scanner, as I was exiting some pimple faced guy on a power trip demanded I freeze and put my hands up 😱😱😱

            I saw my bag flop off the conveyor belt beside me and instinctively moved to grab it. Bad move I got yelled at again, thankfully not shot. The dude was yelling for a supervisor and a female agent, quite the commotion.

            Apparently, I didn’t raise my arms during the scan as you’re supposed to. Maybe because I don’t fly very often and they were rushing us 🤔 The lady agent and the supervisor were very nice, I was almost in tears. I was quickly wanded and sent on my way, but the pimple faced turd was demanding I be strip searched. The supervisor and the lady agent, who were both about my age laughed and the supervisor told the guy to get over himself and then moved him to a different station.

            TSA is no different than any government type job, some people are just jerks and end up on a power trip. Happens with meter maids, police, DMV, you name it. However, we need a better way to deal with people like that.

    AF1 touched down at Zurich International Airport at 8:21 am local time after a largely uneventful flight. There were no visitors to the press cabin.

    POTUS deplaned at 8:34 am. He was wearing a dark overcoat and red tie. He did not take questions and boarded Marine One at 8:35 pm.

    Switzerland is six hours ahead of Washington.

    The pool then ran to nearby Swiss Air Force helicopters, which are carrying reporters and staff (POTUS is flying in his usual Marine One helicopter). We’re told by the pilot we’re riding in what he called a “Super Puma.”

    From our seats in the helicopter we saw Marine One lift off at 8:51 am.

    We’re also lifting off now for an approximately 45-minute helicopter ride to Davos. We’re told the flight will offer stunning views of the Alps.

    We spotted Jared Kushner, Stephen Miller and Dan Scavino on the tarmac here.

      Nothing new about the left’s climate change hoax.

      On November 2, 1922, The Washington Post published a story on a government report that described “a radical change in climatic conditions,” “unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone,” and the disappearance of “well known glaciers.” These developments are all oddly similar to current claims about what global warming is doing to the Arctic.   

      The original November 2, 1922 article:
      Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish And Icebergs Melt*
      (By the Associated Press)
      The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the waters too hot, ac- cording to a report to the Com- merce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen , Norway .

      Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climatic conditions and hitherto unheard-of tem- peratures in the Arctic zone.

      Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are being found in the eastern Arctic,…

    I’m proud he’s my president and that I’m living through this era with a man like this who is in charge of our country. A true leader who accomplished so much despite the resistance of the uni-party. A man whose vision is not only for our nation it is for the world. He inspires the world to be better, at peace and have freedom for the people.
    He makes what is happening in Washington today look petty and small. What would our economy, health care, and government look like if, our other “so called “ leaders would work together for the betterment of their people.

    “In America we understand what the pessimists refuse to see: that a growing and vibrant economy focused on the future lifts the human spirit and excites creativity strong enough to overcome any challenge by far.

    The great scientific breakthroughs of the 20th century – from Penicillin, to high-yield wheat, to modern transportation, and breakthrough vaccines – have lifted living standards and saved billions of lives around the world, and we’re continuing to work on things that you’ll be hearing about in the near future that even today sitting here right now you wouldn’t believe it’s possible, that we have found the answers – you’ll be hearing about it, but we have found answers to things that people said would not be possible, certainly not in a very short period of time. But the wonders of the last century will pale in comparison to what today’s young innovators will achieve because they are doing things that nobody thought even feasible to begin. We continue to embrace technology, not to shun it. When people are free to innovate, millions will live longer happier healthier lives.”

    That was the best speech President Trump has given to date. Though he plowed through that speech point by point, the message was clear. The old order is OVER! and a new dawn shines on all mankind. Seriously, the best speech yet. The start is a simple listing of accomplishments achieved thus far by President Trump and his amazing administration, (Considering all he is up against) it is truly monumental what has been achieved so quickly.

    The end of the speech is the one to listen to again and again. The future. I sincerely believe we are on the verge of something truly spectacular. President Trump seems to be talking about past achievements of mankind, such as penicillin, but then says “working on things you’ll be hearing about in the near future, that even today sitting here right now, you wouldn’t believe its possible, that we have found the answers. You’ll be hearing about it. We have found answers to things that people said, would not be possible.”

    1. HUGE economic results in USA
    2. Cause: De-reg, low taxes, better trade deals, energy independence
    3. It is up to other countries, but if you want success, copy us

    Also
    1. Be optimistic for future
    2. USA will also improve environments by supporting trillion trees on earth by doing billions of trees in the USA

    The last point is an actual solution for the environment, instead of the carbon tax scheme. We should talk more about it. Many people care about the environment and we should stress that we do too and have and are working on effective solutions.

    I understand your hesitance to come out and explicitly state your opinion, and I appreciate that. We are bombarded with opinions these days, and they have taken the place of real news in many cases. But it does no good to hint at your opinion, and then leave it clouded in mystery. Unlike 99% of the other people we hear and read, you have earned the respect and trust of your readers, and I think YOUR unfiltered opinion would be welcomed by us all.

    If you dont want to cloud the facts with your opinion, thats your choice, of course. But if thats the case, I think its best to leave out these little jabs. I find these little tidbits that frequently pop up in your posts to be distracting, especially when they are given without any explanation.

    Im sure you will tell me Im free to leave, but I just wanted to give you my OPINION. 🙂 Thanks for listening.

      Sundance has recently indicated that he doesn’t trust Pompeo, due to the Iran kerfuffle.

        Yep, Im aware. But PT came out of that looking a genius with a big set of brass juevos, so then maybe we should be thanking Pompeo for that?

        But, regardless, what does sundance find interesting about Pompeo not being in the delegation going to Davos?

        If sundance doesnt trust Pompeo, is he saying that Pompeo CHOSE not to go? Or is he saying that PT didnt invite him in the first place and its a sign that PT doesnt trust Pompeo?

    I’ve liked Pompeo, and I hope he isn’t what Sundance suspects. I’m certainly watching what he’s saying and doing.

    I saw Pompeo defending Trump’s use of tweets when he was CIA director and got the impression that he ‘got’ DJT, and liked and respected President Trump. I can’t find the youtube of just that comment when he was talking to Panetta on a panel at the Ronald Reagan Institute, but he said Trump’s tweets often help global situations because they clarified situations.

    Watched the speech this am on O ANN and loved it, really wished they had allowed enough time to see if they were going to let him answer questions but didn’t He is hinting at something coming and even though unsure what he might be talking about Something big in medical could be where it might end up He did tell those people that our AIR and WATER are the cleanest ever
    and after listening to the WAR ROOM discussion this morning I am more certain than ever that
    President Trump is going to be really ok..
    Adding all of the people he did yesterday from the house was a great thing to do.
    President Trump is a great President and he will go down in history as a great President
    I don’t care what these Dems say, The stigma will not stick to him because after the lawyers get threw with the dems they are going to crawl away like the cowards they are
    and again those 4 republicans better be careful Life is bitter when you lose your seat

    I loved that the announcer at the end encouraged the audience to appreciate President Trump’s optimism and let that inflluence the way the think about economic problems they face. American workers well being, development, freedom and personal optimism are central to the Trump America first optimistic model.

    That was a speech made of granite not tin, delivered by a man so confidant because he knows what he has accomplished is real and has long term, far-reaching effects. There is not a drop of doubt and very little persuasion needed. The results speak for themselves.

    We love you, Donald John Trump. Tears of joy and gratitude are flowing like a river for who you are-the strength you have-and for what you have done and are doing…flowing, flowing, flowing.
    So grateful to be alive to experience your spirit and share this time together.

    Starting taking notes midway through and noted the following (some quotes and some paraphrases)

    I see such tremendous potential for the future

    We’ve not even started

    American economic renewal is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched

    The time for skepticism is over

    We’ve adopted a whole new approach centered entirely on the wellbeing of the American worker

    Every decision we make on taxes, regulation, trade, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans

    A nations’s highest duty is to its own citizens

    …….Restoring the bonds of love and loyalty that unites citizens and empowers nations

    Restoring the rule of law

    Touted trade deals with China (phase 1), USMCA, Korea, Japan, UK (future) . When discussing China, emphasized next round of talks will center on reduction of trade barriers, theft of IP and forced tech transfer and elicited chuckles from the crowd when mentioning the key difference between POTUS and Xi is that Xi is for China and POTUS is for the US.

    When discussing energy….spoke of cutting off hostile country energy suppliers (Iran) and unfriendly energy suppliers to Europe (Russia) and offered US LNG suppliers as an alternative

    When discussing environmental concerns, mentioned the US is among the countries with the cleanest air and water and the best in that regard in the past 40 years. Planting 1T trees. Better at managing tresses and forests (looking at California and Australia)

    Dismissed “the perennial prophets of doom”

    Mentioned “brand and noble purpose”

    Seize the day

    “Draw strength from the glories of the past” when discussing the cathedrals of Europe

    At the conclusion, Klaus Schwab could only bring himself to thank POTUS for inclusiveness (in light of POTUS’s statements re employment and standard of living all Americans and specifically that of blacks, Latinos and women), for injecting optimism and appealing to dreams.

      Also, when discussing tariffs on China, mentioned that “we are using them in others too!”…..looking at you EU and especially France

      “Inclusiveness” seems to be the latest global buzz word. In America it means liberal special interest groups get preferential treatment. I wonder what it means on the world stage.

      Fantastic speech by President Trump. Definitely different from one of his MAGA Rally speeches.

    As expected, another broadside for liberty, power back to the people! That this speech occurs on the world Economic Forum’s golden anniversary, it’s jubilee, contrasts the globalist bent of these so called elites wonderfully and is a joy to behold. Show ’em the new pecking order Mr President!
