    I understand your point. My point is on any given day his approval rating is a 15 point spread depending on where you look and instant and I just don't believe things move that fast unless fake.

    Long read but well worth it. WE have to seek and read the progress going on every day in this administration.
    The god damn media isn't going to help us do it.

    Secretary Wilbur Ross Delivers A Message – The “UniParty” Congress is Put On Notice…

    Posted on April 14, 2017 by sundance

    To say we consider Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross a man with a unique skill-set for this defined moment in U.S. economic history would be an understatement of epic proportions. Ross is one of the most consequential and dynamic forces within the President Trump administration.

    [​IMG]

    That said, Secretary Ross also knows the real economic adversary is not necessarily external to our border. The bought-and-paid-for UniParty congress has been under the influence of the globalist-minded U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the myriad of K-Street lobbyists, for almost two decades.

    Today, Wilbur “Wilburine” Ross fires a shot across the bow of the U.S. Economic Swamp Defenders:

    Our message is simple – the games are over, and improper treatment of the United States will no longer be tolerated. We will approach future negotiations and actions with a clarity of purpose guiding us as we work to establish both free and fair trade.

    Unfortunately, NAFTA negotiations cannot begin until Congress accepts our 90-day notification letter in compliance with the Trade Promotion Act. But, under President Trump’s leadership, I have no doubt that we will be successful in rebalancing American trade in favor of American workers and businesses.

    There are, as you know, trillions of dollars at stake. The American electorate have no reference points for the battles that lie ahead within budgets and trade principals. The Trump administration will necessarily direct attention to the real source of political power and influence, the DC financial system.

    [​IMG]

    Wilbur Ross provides no quarter. This is a zero-sum game; it is not some esoteric argument about priorities. The DC UniParty will do everything within their power to block their diminishment.

    As outlined by Wilburine:

    Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross – The United States is the least protectionist country in the world but has the largest trade deficit, while other countries are highly protectionist and have huge trade surpluses. This cannot continue.

    We can no longer afford to be ignorant or naive in the aggressive global marketplace, and there is no reason why we should be forced to singlehandedly absorb the $500 billion trade surplus of the rest of the world.

    Since inauguration, the Administration and the Department of Commerce have been moving rapidly to institute the vision and policies of President Trump. We are acting to vigorously protect the interests of the United States and to restore the primacy of American workers and businesses.

    This administration will not be taken advantage of or cheated through illegal subsidies and market manipulation, and we are acting aggressively against those countries that mock our trade laws.

    To start, we have brought a new energy to enforcement, working to ensure that all countries play fair and by the agreed-upon rules. We have been executing these trade investigations very rapidly.

    In our short time in office, Commerce has opened investigations into dumping or unfair subsidization of over $1 billion dollars of aluminum and metal imports from China and other countries; progressed in investigating over $14 billion in dumped or illegally subsidized imports of steel, chemicals, and other products into the United States; and issued final determinations and imposed duties on imports of steel and other products valued at over $2 billion, including steel from China.

    We have also begun the process of self-initiating trade cases, which speeds up the process of taking corrective action while allowing the Department of Commerce to shield American businesses from retaliation.

    To further these efforts, the President recently issued two executive orders giving the federal government additional tools to ensure fair treatment of American workers and businesses.

    The first order tasks the Department of Commerce with an omnibus review of our nation’s trade deficit. We are now going through country by country, product by product, to identify and study the sources of America’s trade imbalance.

    While some of this information is already collected by various government agencies, there has never been such a systematic collection, review, and analysis of the data. As we seek to rebalance our trade relationships, this report will be our go-to resource.

    The second executive order provides another more concrete weapon in the fight against unfair trade practices. I was amazed to hear that the government has failed to collect literally billions of dollars in antidumping and countervailing duties that we impose pursuant trade judgements in favor of American industry. Many importers use straw man companies with little or no assets to import their goods, so that when it comes time to collect the duties, there is nothing to collect.

    It makes no sense to expend the time and resources to get an affirmative ruling if you cannot then take the necessary action to punish and deter bad actors. This will no longer occur, as the President’s second executive order empowers the Department of Homeland Security to require companies to put up collateral in the form of cash, insurance bonds, or letters of credit in order to import goods.


    While we will ensure that there is a full and fair assessment of the facts in all enforcement cases, we intend to act swiftly and harshly to halt any unfair or improper trade practices.

    Commerce is also charged with protecting our national security from those who would harm this country. In executing that mission, our Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) recently led the federal government in imposing a $1.19 billion dollar fine against Chinese telecommunications manufacturer ZTE, the largest fine ever in an export control case. BIS caught ZTE shamelessly exporting sensitive telecommunications products to both Iran and North Korea.

    Our message is simplethe games are over, and improper treatment of the United States will no longer be tolerated.
    We will approach future negotiations and actions with a clarity of purpose guiding us as we work to establish both free and fair trade. Unfortunately, NAFTA negotiations cannot begin until Congress accepts our 90-day notification letter in compliance with the Trade Promotion Act. But, under President Trump’s leadership, I have no doubt that we will be successful in rebalancing American trade in favor of American workers and businesses. –link

    Piece by piece tearing their little leftist kingdom apart. The left gave no quarter with their attacks, President Trump is giving them no quarter in return.

    EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Calls for ‘Exit’ of Paris Climate Agreement

    interview with FOX and Friends, Pruitt said that “Paris [agreement] is something that we need to really look at closely. It’s something we need to exit in my opinion.”

    “It’s a bad deal for America,” he continued. “It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach. China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030. We front-loaded all of our costs.”

    Pruitt’s comments increase the likelihood the U.S. will pull out of the agreement, which requires governments to present national plans to reduce emissions to limit global temperature rise, as well as regularly report on their progress. Pruitt has previously referred to the agreement as a “bad deal,” but has never openly called for America to quit.

    During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump was a prominent critic of the deal, promising to “cancel” it, and this week he refused to sign a statement endorsing the agreement. Although Trump could not instantly pull America out, he could initiate the process for the country’s exit.

    Since taking office, Trump has revoked a range of environmental legislation—including Barack Obama’s climate orders—with a plan to focus on energy independence and revitalize the coal industry. In his first White House budget, Trump also proposed a 31 percent cut to the EPA’s overall budget.

    However, reports in March suggested that members of Trump’s senior team were divided over pulling out of the deal, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his own daughter Ivanka advising him not to pull the plug over concerns it would upset major allies.

    On Thursday, Energy Secretary Rick Perry confirmed that his department is conducting a review of all energy policy, adding that it was “the right to do.”

    Trumponomics: Graph reveals how Ivanka's clothing sales increased by 10,700% when Kellyanne Conway promoted her on TV - as outrage grows over fact China gave her three trademarks the same day she met Chinese President
    • Sales of Ivanka-brand merchandise went up massively on February 9 and 10
    • On February 9, Kellyanne Conway had promoted the brand on national TV
    • Conway was criticized for a breach of ethics, but it helped out Ivanka's sales
    • The Ivanka brand had three provisional Chinese trademarks confirmed on April 6
    • That day, Chinese president Xi Jinping was visiting the Trumps at Mar-a-lago
    • Ivanka no longer manages her company - but she still owns it
    • And critics say that it's compromising her ability to counsel the president

    I'll give you the biggest tax cut EVER promises Trump as he says he will unveil tax reform plan next week
    • His 100 day mark in the horizon, Trump said his administration will have it ready by 'Wednesday or shortly thereafter.'
    • White House noted that he gave himself wiggle room in the statement
    • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggested this week that an original August deadline for reform to pass was unlikely to be met
    • He found himself publicly rebuffed by Trump, who's motto as a developer was 'on time, under budget'
    • Trump assured an audience Tuesday that it would get done that quickly - if lawmakers hustle on health care
    • Unclear what's in the proposal - neither the White House nor Treasury are saying
    • Border adjusted tax House tax committee's chairman wants is a sticking point
    • A proposal floated this week to end a deduction rich people get for giving large amounts of money to charity would anger conservatives
    • Trump needs almost every Republican to go along with his plan, otherwise he'll have to plead with Democrats
