WORLD TRADE WAR: TRUMP WINS

The EU Commission is backtracking their previous rejected deal with Theresa May and claiming that the no-deal BREXIT really means the rejected deal that gave them $46 billion is the best solution for all… according to Mina Andreeva, a spokesperson.

Certainly $46 billion is a whole lot better than the $9 billion they would likely get in the Johnson no-deal deal.   Of course, resurrecting a ‘rejected’ deal would legally be starting from scratch.   But in the mélange of chaos, the EU Commission would seem to be grasping and gasping – albeit too late.

All economic indicators now rally behind an impending recession for Germany. Given they are the stalwart economy behind the EU, where Germany goes, everyone else follows.

The primary cause of Germany’s implosion is trade not BREXIT.   Industrial output has tanked, primarily in the auto and machine parts industries. Merkel’s outright refusal to negotiate a fair trade with the US having been advised that in so doing she could create a German recession – is simply corrupt.

But allies can sometimes reveal the wolf behind the mask.   Germany is not a US ally, Germany milked the US economy for decades.

The US/China trade war tipped the balance, and Germany remained staunch and unmoving.

Timing is everything.

If the UK remainers win, the UK will derail with Germany and France.   They will be boarding a sinking ship. Short-sighted, ramping up trade with the US would be an economic win.   But sometimes, pride and principle are fervent manufacturers of destruction.

While the socialists in the EU argue against Trump’s tariffs, they seem to forget that Trump offered a zero tariff exchange which Germany and the EU snubbed.   Is the EU working for the people?   It would seem not.   And like the rejected BREXIT deal that they want to suddenly reinstate, a zero tariff trade with the US may be the no-deal deal.

Is it the trade deal or is it the ally that wasn’t?

While rejecting the US zero trade deal, the EU simultaneously agreed to zero tariff’s with Japan.   The wolf showed his face.  And the ally that was, revealed it’s true corruption.  The EU wanted an imbalance and it served them well for 30 years.

The US trade balance was at zero up until 1976.   The following 15 years saw the trade balance dip and trough before coming back to zero.   Between 1991 and 2010, the trade balance tanked! Why?

Clintonomics.

Clinton lowered US tariffs which ultimately destroyed US ability to compete in the export and trade markets, particularly with China.   Because while the US lowered its tariffs, other countries did not follow suit which would have been the job of the WTO…   The World Trade Organization, which was originally the General Agreement on Tariffs and Tax, was created to provide an equality, a balance of tariffs among all member countries. Apparently, that nondiscrimination balance didn’t apply to the US.

When Clinton lowered the tariff rate in the US trade disparities began to escalate rapidly to the detriment of the US. In fact, it was a binge selloff with the US trade balance going from zero to -900billion with the speed of a Lamborghini on a German autobahn!

Prior to this binge selloff, US small businesses were a growing, the economic boom of entrepreneurship expanded significantly.   Mom and pop stores changed the face of the US.   But with the advent of Clintonesque cheap imports, these small businesses began to shutter, unable to compete.   The Walmarts of the world took over increasing the trade balance even more as Chinese goods became the mainstay.   And middle class shrunk like Alice.

In 1980 small business start-ups represented 12% of all US companies and employed 4% of workers. Today those numbers are halved. Those companies were The American Dream. That Dream died when Clinton lowered tariffs despite advice from both parties that such a move would destroy US businesses. The World Trade Center obviously did nothing to balance the discrepancies in countries tariffs, and have proven to be a truly non-essential entity.

Back to BREXIT.

The creation of new trade partners invoking a zero tariff policy is the ultimate free-trade deal.   It is the deal that is now in effect with Mexico and Canada. Today China has slipped to third place in US imports with Mexico rising to number 1 and Canada to number 2.   Expanding their economies, Trump’s zero tariff trade is picking up the slack of China imports while contracting their economy.  It is a non-tax trade.

Adding the UK, would provide them with a backstop and relieve the angst of impending doom and gloom that the naysayers of BREXIT fear.  Trump and Johnson have already made arrangements to soften the initial BREXIT wind and create a sovereign economy without the welfare payouts to the EU.

It is change.   Change requires stamina and patience. Fear will only forebode chaos.

Putin Meets Macron: The Tortoise & The Hare

Putin and Macron met in the idyllic seaside resort of the French President. According to which media outlet you read, the take away of this visit varies wildly!   At one point Macron was telling Putin that Russia was part of the European Union. I doubt this went over well with Putin. There is the gist in western media outlets asserting that Macron will be pushing Putin to do this and that, Macron will pressure Putin, Macron will tell Putin. The obvious hypocrisy being that in the world of genealogy mechanizations, Putin is a human and Macron is still a snail intellectually.

Putin respects intelligence, he has no patience for stupidity. Macron has no powerhouse from which to lecture and thus he fumes from a place wherein he is superfluous.   France has descended into its socialist vacuum, and there is no one to rescue her.

The complete 180’ about face of the European media in suddenly referencing Putin as a possible ally and … friend… is so blatantly fake, it demeans Putin’s intelligence to think he would even remotely believe one blubber or another.

If Putin gets even the slightest whiff of Soros, the game becomes more gamey.   Macron is a well-known Rothschild mannequin, so anything coming from his mouth has been scripted by The Cabal. Maybe they are getting old, but their tactics seem to have become rather pathetic, not at all militarily tactical.

‘It worked 90 years ago, I think we should sticks to what we know…”

The other fairly interesting short sightedness within the Cabal and their maintenance of power, would seem to be a lack of young intellectuals capable of continuing their agenda and fulfilling the end result. Having raised puppets, there are no masters to take over the agenda.  The millennials we see across the universities haven’t even one thousandth of the necessary skills, acumen, and tactic to sustain their coming to power.   They misjudged, unless they are relying on some scientific AI breakthrough whereby their brains or intelligence could be inserted into a robot and thus give them a synthetic belief they will live – forever.

According to those in the Macron soapbox, Macron will continually push the idea that Russia is a part of the EU, that Putin must now jump aboard the Paris Climate Accord because of the devastating fires in Siberia, Ukraine must be revoked and returned to it’s EU bastion, and Libya will be dealt with on France’s terms.

Tres Diplomatique!

Huff and Puff and blow your house down. Macron has zero sense of the art of negotiation and diplomacy and respect. Had Macron kept his mouth shut, made great praise of Putin for the media, and quietly worked a deal, perhaps something could have been accomplished. But instead Macron was told to come into the room swinging chaotically, and continue throughout the entire meeting so that Putin can go home assured that he will never deal with France except to the tune of 100% his terms.

In addition, Putin is a diplomat and bashing Trump and the US would be tthe tactic of a child back-stabbing, beneath dignity.

IDIOTE!

Topics that should be on the table include Germany’s looming recession, how that will impact the EU, especially in light of BREXIT, Boris Johnson’s closed door trade deals with the US, how that will impact the EU, the falling economy of France, the Yellow Vests, etc…, you know, those Presidential economic considerations that are their duty to fix.

All of this is in preparation of the G7 Summit to be held in France August 24th to the 26th. Attendance will include: the very disgraced Trudeau whose government is calling for his resignation, Macron – who has taken to Trump/US bashing, Boris Johnson, Trump, Merkel, Conte – whose resignation was just accepted, Shinzu Abe – a liberal democrat, and Charles Michel who replaced Tusk, and is a liberal socialist.

Should be a fun time.

My guess is Trump will skip out after a day and leave the media much fodder with which to demonize him while he goes off and – makes Great Changes without their ‘oversight’.

While trade is not even a considered topic for discussion at the G7 Summit, France, Germany, and the EU are apparently on pins and needles to see if they can successfully align against the US and prop up a Union that is disintegrating.

In that vein Macron is trying to disarm Boris Johnson by stating any trade deal made with the US simply makes the UK a pawn of the US.   Idiote!   The entire BREXIT initiative is based on the UK reasserting sovereignty and making their own decisions without the EU’s permission. But then, Macron is making various last ditch efforts to keep the UK in the EU – intimidation, bullying, befriending, whatever nouveaux tactic he deems appropriate including attacking Trump amid a failing attempt to give false witness to the power of the EU.

Problem? They refuse to actually tend to their country’s massive economic fallout problems and hope their legacy can prevail just a tad longer before all hell breaks loose and the EU is sucked into a black hole.

While Russia sits back and becomes the tortoise watching all the EU hares fall down and cower.  A shift is taking place, only it isn’t what the shadow government necessarily wanted.

The real stories would be in the Boris Johnson trade deals being made with Trump.   Italy’s deals, and the ever reclusive Saudi Prince who has been very quietly radically changing his own country socially and economically without media interference or frenzy. New powerhouses, new alliances, and earth shifted on its axis.
