It’s easy to think Dems will prevail – if you consume liberal corporate media and their associated polls. There are two parallel election universes out there, just as there were in the fall of 2016.

President Trump Speech to 73rd U.N. General Assembly – Transcript and Video…
Posted on September 25, 2018by sundance

President Donald Trump addresses the U.N. General Assembly in New York presenting a vision of why all nations must represent their national interests first, with patriotism and also with peace. Brilliant speech:
…”I honor the right of every nation in this room to pursue its own customs, beliefs, and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship. We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.”…​

[Transcript] United Nations – New York, New York – 10:38 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Madam President, Mr. Secretary-General, world leaders, ambassadors, and distinguished delegates:

One year ago, I stood before you for the first time in this grand hall. I addressed the threats facing our world, and I presented a vision to achieve a brighter future for all of humanity.
Today, I stand before the United Nations General Assembly to share the extraordinary progress we’ve made.



In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.
America’s — so true. (Laughter.) Didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s okay. (Laughter and applause.)

America’s economy is booming like never before. Since my election, we’ve added $10 trillion in wealth. The stock market is at an all-time high in history, and jobless claims are at a 50-year low. African American, Hispanic American, and Asian American unemployment have all achieved their lowest levels ever recorded. We’ve added more than 4 million new jobs, including half a million manufacturing jobs.

We have passed the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history. We’ve started the construction of a major border wall, and we have greatly strengthened border security.

We have secured record funding for our military — $700 billion this year, and $716 billion next year. Our military will soon be more powerful than it has ever been before.

In other words, the United States is stronger, safer, and a richer country than it was when I assumed office less than two years ago.
We are standing up for America and for the American people. And we are also standing up for the world.

This is great news for our citizens and for peace-loving people everywhere. We believe that when nations respect the rights of their neighbors, and defend the interests of their people, they can better work together to secure the blessings of safety, prosperity, and peace.
Each of us here today is the emissary of a distinct culture, a rich history, and a people bound together by ties of memory, tradition, and the values that make our homelands like nowhere else on Earth.


That is why America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control, and domination.
I honor the right of every nation in this room to pursue its own customs, beliefs, and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship.


We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.

From Warsaw to Brussels, to Tokyo to Singapore, it has been my highest honor to represent the United States abroad. I have forged close relationships and friendships and strong partnerships with the leaders of many nations in this room, and our approach has already yielded incredible change.



With support from many countries here today, we have engaged with North Korea to replace the specter of conflict with a bold and new push for peace.

In June, I traveled to Singapore to meet face to face with North Korea’s leader, Chairman Kim Jong Un.
We had highly productive conversations and meetings, and we agreed that it was in both countries’ interest to pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Since that meeting, we have already seen a number of encouraging measures that few could have imagined only a short time ago.

The missiles and rockets are no longer flying in every direction. Nuclear testing has stopped. Some military facilities are already being dismantled. Our hostages have been released. And as promised, the remains of our fallen heroes are being returned home to lay at rest in American soil.
I would like to thank Chairman Kim for his courage and for the steps he has taken, though much work remains to be done. The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs.

I also want to thank the many member states who helped us reach this moment — a moment that is actually far greater than people would understand; far greater — but for also their support and the critical support that we will all need going forward.
A special thanks to President Moon of South Korea, Prime Minister Abe of Japan, and President Xi of China.
In the Middle East, our new approach is also yielding great strides and very historic change.

Following my trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Gulf countries opened a new center to target terrorist financing. They are enforcing new sanctions, working with us to identify and track terrorist networks, and taking more responsibility for fighting terrorism and extremism in their own region.
The UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar have pledged billions of dollars to aid the people of Syria and Yemen. And they are pursuing multiple avenues to ending Yemen’s horrible, horrific civil war.

Ultimately, it is up to the nations of the region to decide what kind of future they want for themselves and their children.
For that reason, the United States is working with the Gulf Cooperation Council, Jordan, and Egypt to establish a regional strategic alliance so that Middle Eastern nations can advance prosperity, stability, and security across their home region.

Thanks to the United States military and our partnership with many of your nations, I am pleased to report that the bloodthirsty killers known as ISIS have been driven out from the territory they once held in Iraq and Syria. We will continue to work with friends and allies to deny radical Islamic terrorists any funding, territory or support, or any means of infiltrating our borders.

The ongoing tragedy in Syria is heartbreaking. Our shared goals must be the de-escalation of military conflict, along with a political solution that honors the will of the Syrian people. In this vein, we urge the United Nations-led peace process be reinvigorated. But, rest assured, the United States will respond if chemical weapons are deployed by the Assad regime.

I commend the people of Jordan and other neighboring countries for hosting refugees from this very brutal civil war.
As we see in Jordan, the most compassionate policy is to place refugees as close to their homes as possible to ease their eventual return to be part of the rebuilding process. This approach also stretches finite resources to help far more people, increasing the impact of every dollar spent.
Every solution to the humanitarian crisis in Syria must also include a strategy to address the brutal regime that has fueled and financed it: the corrupt dictatorship in Iran.

Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death, and destruction. They do not respect their neighbors or borders, or the sovereign rights of nations. Instead, Iran’s leaders plunder the nation’s resources to enrich themselves and to spread mayhem across the Middle East and far beyond.

The Iranian people are rightly outraged that their leaders have embezzled billions of dollars from Iran’s treasury, seized valuable portions of the economy, and looted the people’s religious endowments, all to line their own pockets and send their proxies to wage war. Not good.

Iran’s neighbors have paid a heavy toll for the region’s [regime’s] agenda of aggression and expansion. That is why so many countries in the Middle East strongly supported my decision to withdraw the United States from the horrible 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal and re-impose nuclear sanctions.
The Iran deal was a windfall for Iran’s leaders. In the years since the deal was reached, Iran’s military budget grew nearly 40 percent. The dictatorship used the funds to build nuclear-capable missiles, increase internal repression, finance terrorism, and fund havoc and slaughter in Syria and Yemen.

The United States has launched a campaign of economic pressure to deny the regime the funds it needs to advance its bloody agenda. Last month, we began re-imposing hard-hitting nuclear sanctions that had been lifted under the Iran deal. Additional sanctions will resume November 5th, and more will follow. And we’re working with countries that import Iranian crude oil to cut their purchases substantially.

We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet’s most dangerous weapons. We cannot allow a regime that chants “Death to America,” and that threatens Israel with annihilation, to possess the means to deliver a nuclear warhead to any city on Earth. Just can’t do it.

We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues. And we ask all nations to support Iran’s people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny.
This year, we also took another significant step forward in the Middle East. In recognition of every sovereign state to determine its own capital, I moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The United States is committed to a future of peace and stability in the region, including peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. That aim is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts.
America’s policy of principled realism means we will not be held hostage to old dogmas, discredited ideologies, and so-called experts who have been proven wrong over the years, time and time again. This is true not only in matters of peace, but in matters of prosperity.
We believe that trade must be fair and reciprocal. The United States will not be taken advantage of any longer.

For decades, the United States opened its economy — the largest, by far, on Earth — with few conditions. We allowed foreign goods from all over the world to flow freely across our borders.
Yet, other countries did not grant us fair and reciprocal access to their markets in return. Even worse, some countries abused their openness to dump their products, subsidize their goods, target our industries, and manipulate their currencies to gain unfair advantage over our country. As a result, our trade deficit ballooned to nearly $800 billion a year.

For this reason, we are systematically renegotiating broken and bad trade deals.
Last month, we announced a groundbreaking U.S.-Mexico trade agreement. And just yesterday, I stood with President Moon to announce the successful completion of the brand new U.S.-Korea trade deal. And this is just the beginning.

Many nations in this hall will agree that the world trading system is in dire need of change. For example, countries were admitted to the World Trade Organization that violate every single principle on which the organization is based. While the United States and many other nations play by the rules, these countries use government-run industrial planning and state-owned enterprises to rig the system in their favor. They engage in relentless product dumping, forced technology transfer, and the theft of intellectual property.

The United States lost over 3 million manufacturing jobs, nearly a quarter of all steel jobs, and 60,000 factories after China joined the WTO. And we have racked up $13 trillion in trade deficits over the last two decades.
But those days are over. We will no longer tolerate such abuse. We will not allow our workers to be victimized, our companies to be cheated, and our wealth to be plundered and transferred. America will never apologize for protecting its citizens.
The United States has just announced tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese-made goods for a total, so far, of $250 billion. I have great respect and affection for my friend, President Xi, but I have made clear our trade imbalance is just not acceptable. China’s market distortions and the way they deal cannot be tolerated.

As my administration has demonstrated, America will always act in our national interest.
I spoke before this body last year and warned that the U.N. Human Rights Council had become a grave embarrassment to this institution, shielding egregious human rights abusers while bashing America and its many friends.

Our Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, laid out a clear agenda for reform, but despite reported and repeated warnings, no action at all was taken.
So the United States took the only responsible course: We withdrew from the Human Rights Council, and we will not return until real reform is enacted.

For similar reasons, the United States will provide no support in recognition to the International Criminal Court. As far as America is concerned, the ICC has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy, and no authority. The ICC claims near-universal jurisdiction over the citizens of every country, violating all principles of justice, fairness, and due process. We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy.

America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.

Around the world, responsible nations must defend against threats to sovereignty not just from global governance, but also from other, new forms of coercion and domination.
In America, we believe strongly in energy security for ourselves and for our allies. We have become the largest energy producer anywhere on the face of the Earth.

The United States stands ready to export our abundant, affordable supply of oil, clean coal, and natural gas.
OPEC and OPEC nations, are, as usual, ripping off the rest of the world, and I don’t like it. Nobody should like it. We defend many of these nations for nothing, and then they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices. Not good.

We want them to stop raising prices, we want them to start lowering prices, and they
must contribute substantially to military protection from now on. We are not going to put up with it — these horrible prices — much longer.
Reliance on a single foreign supplier can leave a nation vulnerable to extortion and intimidation. That is why we congratulate European states, such as Poland, for leading the construction of a Baltic pipeline so that nations are not dependent on Russia to meet their energy needs. Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course.

Here in the Western Hemisphere, we are committed to maintaining our independence from the encroachment of expansionist foreign powers.
It has been the formal policy of our country since President Monroe that we reject the interference of foreign nations in this hemisphere and in our own affairs. The United States has recently strengthened our laws to better screen foreign investments in our country for national security threats, and we welcome cooperation with countries in this region and around the world that wish to do the same. You need to do it for your own protection.

The United States is also working with partners in Latin America to confront threats to sovereignty from uncontrolled migration. Tolerance for human struggling and human smuggling and trafficking is not humane. It’s a horrible thing that’s going on, at levels that nobody has ever seen before. It’s very, very cruel.

Illegal immigration funds criminal networks, ruthless gangs, and the flow of deadly drugs. Illegal immigration exploits vulnerable populations, hurts hardworking citizens, and has produced a vicious cycle of crime, violence, and poverty. Only by upholding national borders, destroying criminal gangs, can we break this cycle and establish a real foundation for prosperity.

We recognize the right of every nation in this room to set its own immigration policy in accordance with its national interests, just as we ask other countries to respect our own right to do the same — which we are doing. That is one reason the United States will not participate in the new Global Compact on Migration. Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens.
Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.

Currently, we are witnessing a human tragedy, as an example, in Venezuela. More than 2 million people have fled the anguish inflicted by the socialist Maduro regime and its Cuban sponsors.
Not long ago, Venezuela was one of the richest countries on Earth. Today, socialism has bankrupted the oil-rich nation and driven its people into abject poverty.

Virtually everywhere socialism or communism has been tried, it has produced suffering, corruption, and decay. Socialism’s thirst for power leads to expansion, incursion, and oppression. All nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it brings to everyone.
In that spirit, we ask the nations gathered here to join us in calling for the restoration of democracy in Venezuela. Today, we are announcing additional sanctions against the repressive regime, targeting Maduro’s inner circle and close advisors.

We are grateful for all the work the United Nations does around the world to help people build better lives for themselves and their families.

The United States is the world’s largest giver in the world, by far, of foreign aid. But few give anything to us. That is why we are taking a hard look at U.S. foreign assistance. That will be headed up by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. We will examine what is working, what is not working, and whether the countries who receive our dollars and our protection also have our interests at heart.
Moving forward, we are only going to give foreign aid to those who respect us and, frankly, are our friends. And we expect other countries to pay their fair share for the cost of their defense.


The United States is committed to making the United Nations more effective and accountable. I have said many times that the United Nations has unlimited potential. As part of our reform effort, I have told our negotiators that the United States will not pay more than 25 percent of the U.N. peacekeeping budget. This will encourage other countries to step up, get involved, and also share in this very large burden.
And we are working to shift more of our funding from assessed contributions to voluntary so that we can target American resources to the programs with the best record of success.

Only when each of us does our part and contributes our share can we realize the U.N.’s highest aspirations. We must pursue peace without fear, hope without despair, and security without apology.

Looking around this hall where so much history has transpired, we think of the many before us who have come here to address the challenges of their nations and of their times. And our thoughts turn to the same question that ran through all their speeches and resolutions, through every word and every hope. It is the question of what kind of world will we leave for our children and what kind of nations they will inherit.



The dreams that fill this hall today are as diverse as the people who have stood at this podium, and as varied as the countries represented right here in this body are. It really is something. It really is great, great history.
There is India, a free society over a billion people, successfully lifting countless millions out of poverty and into the middle class.
There is Saudi Arabia, where King Salman and the Crown Prince are pursuing bold new reforms.
There is Israel, proudly celebrating its 70th anniversary as a thriving democracy in the Holy Land.
In Poland, a great people are standing up for their independence, their security, and their sovereignty.
Many countries are pursuing their own unique visions, building their own hopeful futures, and chasing their own wonderful dreams of destiny, of legacy, and of a home.

The whole world is richer, humanity is better, because of this beautiful constellation of nations, each very special, each very unique, and each shining brightly in its part of the world.
In each one, we see awesome promise of a people bound together by a shared past and working toward a common future.
As for Americans, we know what kind of future we want for ourselves. We know what kind of a nation America must always be.
In America, we believe in the majesty of freedom and the dignity of the individual. We believe in self-government and the rule of law. And we prize the culture that sustains our liberty -– a culture built on strong families, deep faith, and fierce independence. We celebrate our heroes, we treasure our traditions, and above all, we love our country.

Inside everyone in this great chamber today, and everyone listening all around the globe, there is the heart of a patriot that feels the same powerful love for your nation, the same intense loyalty to your homeland.
The passion that burns in the hearts of patriots and the souls of nations has inspired reform and revolution, sacrifice and selflessness, scientific breakthroughs, and magnificent works of art.

Our task is not to erase it, but to embrace it. To build with it. To draw on its ancient wisdom. And to find within it the will to make our nations greater, our regions safer, and the world better.
To unleash this incredible potential in our people, we must defend the foundations that make it all possible. Sovereign and independent nations are the only vehicle where freedom has ever survived, democracy has ever endured, or peace has ever prospered. And so we must protect our sovereignty and our cherished independence above all.

When we do, we will find new avenues for cooperation unfolding before us. We will find new passion for peacemaking rising within us. We will find new purpose, new resolve, and new spirit flourishing all around us, and making this a more beautiful world in which to live.

So together, let us choose a future of patriotism, prosperity, and pride. Let us choose peace and freedom over domination and defeat. And let us come here to this place to stand for our people and their nations, forever strong, forever sovereign, forever just, and forever thankful for the grace and the goodness and the glory of God.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the nations of the world.
Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.)

Read to the end, Trump and his trade team are freaking genius! Poor little justine.............

Mexico exit's NAFTA first.........................

President Trump Rejected Meeting With Trudeau After Trade Conflict…
Posted on September 26, 2018by sundance

During a U.N. press conference President Trump was asked if he rejected a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. President Trump affirmed he did reject a meeting over the ongoing conflict within the U.S-Canada trade issues. CTH Readers will likely remember when President Trump was going to announce the U.S-Mexico trade deal, Trump attempted to call Trudeau in advance. Justin from Canada rejected the phone call.
.


Justin and Chrystia from Canada have made a political decision to reject any trade negotiations in favor of using conflict with President Trump to aide their domestic political agenda. read lobbyists

Justin and Chrystia are counting on U.S. political opposition to block POTUS Trump from ending the tri-lateral NAFTA deal.

However, what Justin and Chrystia have not considered (nor anyone else), was U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and President Trump anticipated a political approach several months ago. No-one dissects the details within a contract better than Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. He is legendary in the business world for this specific skill-set.

There is a very good reason why the U.S-Mexico deal was structured with strong benefit toward the Mexican economy. POTUS Trump and Wilbur Ross knew prior corporate investment in Mexico, tens of billions, combined with modifications to the ‘Rules of Origin’ would benefit both Mexico and the U.S.
Specifically, EU auto companies using Mexico for manufacturing would need to add to their investment within Mexico to meet higher content requirements.

Additionally, within another part of the strategic agreement, President Trump and Wilbur Ross structured the big picture to enhance U.S. investment in Mexico in the energy sector.

USTR Robert Lighthizer then executed on the U.S-Mexico strategy by building the framework for a trade bloc that is actually better for Mexico than the original NAFTA. In essence, Lighthizer made Mexico a regional “MFN” (Most Favored Nation).
The result of the U.S-Mexico agreement is a joint trade bloc that enhances the Mexican economy with a much larger (expanded investment) and stronger (industrial/manufacturing) relationship to the U.S. This joint agreement makes Mexico far stronger.

Now, why?

Why was so much emphasis put on making the terms so much better for Mexico than the existing NAFTA?
The answer circles back to the political approach by Canada to oppose President Trump.



After AMLO won the election…. long before anyone was paying attention…. Team USA entered into a joint “trade strategy” with AMLO’s objectives in mind. The AMLO objectives, to expand the Mexican economic base, are based on different policies from the Pena Nieto administration.
In August Mexican trade representative Jesus Seade (AMLO) and USTR Lighthizer (Trump) privately cemented the framework. After the U.S-Mexico deal was announced, in the past six weeks the details have been filled in.

What Canada did not factor into their political approach was the likelihood that Mexico, not the U.S., will actually be the first country to exit NAFTA.
Mexico exiting NAFTA first removes the political leverage from all of Trump’s opposition.


The political dynamic changes. President Trump is then responding to the Mexican withdrawal.

After Mexico announces their exit, the U.S. team will announce the details of the U.S-Mexico deal that are based on a bilateral agreement. The bilateral agreement means the U.S. must also withdraw from NAFTA. This move negates Canada’s ill-fated political scheme.
What’s Canada going to do, start publicly denouncing Mexico?


Brilliant.

Global CFO Third Quarter Survey: USA is the Only Expanding Economy….
Posted on September 27, 2018by sundance


Every quarter, CNBC surveys its Global CFO Council to gain insight into the status of the current global economy. The CFO council is comprised of Chief Financial Officers of the world’s largest 113 companies that combined are worth nearly $5 trillion. Interestingly the council is comprised almost exclusively of multinational corporations who are generally opposed to President Trump’s MAGAnomic trade reset.

However, in the third quarter survey the CFO’s note that only one economy in the world is currently improving, the United States.





The multinational CFO’s (Wall Street) generally rail against President Trump’s trade and tariff proposals in almost all financial media. These are the same multinationals who decry President Trump’s deployment of tariffs as a trade negotiation strategy. However, when it comes to actually quantifying the growth rate of the global regions covered, they admit the U.S. is where the current and future growth is most expansive.

As Investors Business Daily notes:

[…] The fact that the U.S. appears to be pulling away from the rest of the world hasn’t gone unnoticed, at least not in the White House. At a speech last week at the Economic Club of New York, Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said “the U.S. is the hottest economy in the world today. We’re crushing it.”​
But wait a minute.​
For some time now, the “experts” have been telling us that the U.S. was just riding a global growth wave. The improved economy here had nothing to do with Trump’s deregulatory efforts, or his pro-growth tax cuts, or the sharp uptick in optimism once he got elected.​
[…] Now it appears that the U.S. economy is accelerating, while the rest of the world is in neutral. (read more)
Not only is the U.S economy the place to be for investment opportunity and the highest rates of return; but all sectors of the economic base are expanding and generating overall GDP growth.

American manufacturers continue to exhibit strong growth under @RealDonaldTrump!​





View image on Twitter

August 2018 new orders for manufactured durable goods, up two of the last three months, +4.5% to $259.6b. Transportation equipment, also up two of the last three months, led the increase, +13.0%. https://go.usa.gov/xPa9h #Census
Orders for durable goods reflect the underlying businesses are predicting future growth, long-term growth. Trucks and heavy transportation equipment orders continue growing by double-digits (currently 13%). That is a massive investment internal to the underlying U.S. economic expansion.
We need more winnamins!!

Kanye Full Maga on SNL

Rips Democrat Welfare State in Pro-Trump Speech

’90 Percent of News Are Liberal’

9,793
A Make America Great Again hat-wearing Kanye West ended the 44th season premiere of Saturday Night Live with an impassioned political speech that saw the Grammy-winning fashion icon defend President Donald Trump.

“The blacks weren’t always Democrats. You know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” West said, flanked by SNL cast members and his collaborative musicians Kid Cudi and 070 Shake. “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
West continued to stress America’s need for a serious “dialogue, not a diatribe.” A portion of the speech was captured by comedian Chris Rock and went viral on social media.

So when SNL cut out tonight right as Kanye was telling everybody to come back on stage, turns out he stood there for minutes afterward and incoherently ranted about his “Superman cape” red hat, Trump, and the Sunken Place. Look how awkward the cast looks. pic.twitter.com/WP67rTPswa
— CRT (@StoryofEverest) September 30, 2018

West’s longtime creative collaborator, the four-time Grammy-winning producer Mike Dean posted video of West’s speech.”KANYE SNL TALK THAT GOT CUT OFF FREEDOM OF SPEECH SHOULD HAVE EXTENDED,” Dean captioned his tweet.



MIKE DEAN! #MWA

KANYE SNL TALK THAT GOT CUT OFF FREEDOM OF SPEECH SHOULD HAVE EXTENDED
2:28 AM - Sep 30, 2018

At one point West said he was “bullied backstage” and was warned not to wear the hat with Trump’s campaign slogan on it. West then referred to his MAGA hat as his “Superman cape,” putting it on and telling that crowd “this mean, you can’t tell me what to do.”

“Thank y’all, for giving me this platform. I know some of y’all don’t agree but y’all be going at that man neck a lot, and I don’t think it’s actually that helpful,” West said of President Trump. “Ninety percent of news are liberal.”

“Ninety percent of TV … LA, New York, writers, rappers, musicians; so it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so, one-sided,” West continued as the music in the background hit a crescendo.

“I feel kind of free. I thought this country said that I could be me,” West began to sign as an audience member shouted “I love you Kanye!”
“I love me too,” Kanye West responded to uproarious applause from the crowd.
West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, warned her million followers that “Tonight’s SNLperformance is gonna be crazy!!!! Tune in!”

That’s a Democratic plan,” West said, flanked by SNL cast members and his collaborative musicians Kid Cudi and 070 Shake. “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”
West continued to stress America’s need for a serious “dialogue, not a diatribe.” A portion of the speech was captured by comedian Chris Rock and went viral on social media.

West’s longtime creative collaborator, the four-time Grammy-winning producer Mike Dean posted video of West’s speech.”KANYE SNL TALK THAT GOT CUT OFF FREEDOM OF SPEECH SHOULD HAVE EXTENDED,” Dean captioned his tweet.

At one point West said he was “bullied backstage” and was warned not to wear the hat with Trump’s campaign slogan on it. West then referred to his MAGA hat as his “Superman cape,” putting it on and telling that crowd “this mean, you can’t tell me what to do.”

“Thank y’all, for giving me this platform. I know some of y’all don’t agree but y’all be going at that man neck a lot, and I don’t think it’s actually that helpful,” West said of President Trump. “Ninety percent of news are liberal.”

“Ninety percent of TV … LA, New York, writers, rappers, musicians; so it’s easy to make it seem like it’s so, so, so, one-sided,” West continued as the music in the background hit a crescendo.

“I feel kind of free. I thought this country said that I could be me,” West began to sign as an audience member shouted “I love you Kanye!”
“I love me too,” Kanye West responded to uproarious applause from the crowd.
West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, warned her million followers that “Tonight’s SNLperformance is gonna be crazy!!!! Tune in!”

President Trump Accomplishes What Was Once Thought Impossible: Trade Deals Set with Mexico and Canada that Put America First!
by Jim Hoft October 1, 2018 35 Comments
Guest post by Joe Hoft



President Trump had accomplished the impossible again. Naysayers said his trade policies would put the world in a global recession, instead the US just announced a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico and the US economy is on fire!
Fox Business reported over the weekend –

The United States and Canada confirmed Sunday they had reached a deal on a “new, modernized trade agreement,” which is designed to replace the 1994 NAFTA pact.​

In a joint statement the two nations said the new deal would be called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).​
….The agreements reportedly boost U.S. access to Canada’s dairy market and protect Canada from possible U.S. autos tariffs.
President Trump’s administration has said Canada must sign on to the text of the updated NAFTA by a midnight Sunday deadline or face exclusion from the pact. Washington has already reached a bilateral deal with Mexico, the third NAFTA member.​
Not all elitist media outlets were happy and honest with the news. The BBC reported that President Trump was against free trade –
The Trump administration set Sunday as a deadline for Canada to strike a deal.
A protectionist policy under the Mr Trump has seen the US forge ahead with individual trade deals, rejecting bigger multi-lateral trade agreements and posing a challenge to decades of global free trade.​
What a crock! The liberal media said President Trump would cause the next Great Depression with his trade policies. Instead the economy is booming, unemployment is at all time lows, the stock market is at record setting highs and US GDP has never been higher!

Expect US markets to go up today into record setting territory again today!

MASSIVE WIN – NAFTA Loophole Closed – Canada and Mexico Agree to U.S. Approval Authority of *ANY* Future Trade Agreements With Third Parties…
Posted on October 1, 2018by sundance

Biggest U.S. Trade Win in the History of all U.S. Trade Constructs !



I’m still going through the USMCA text (even speed reading, it will likely take a while); here’s the link to the AGREEMENT DETAILS. However, many people have asked about how the NAFTA loophole was being closed.

Well, the answer is exactly what it had to be – there was really no option. The U.S. now has veto authority over any trade deal made by Canada and/or Mexico with third parties. This is what Ambassador Lighthizer described as the “Third pillar”.

Last year, despite the inevitability of it, we didn’t think Canada and Mexico would agree to it. The NAFTA loophole was/is a zero-sum issue: Either Can/Mex agree to give veto authority to the U.S. –OR– President Trump had no option to exit NAFTA completely.
Well, Canada and Mexico have agreed to the former, so there’s no need for the latter.

(LINK to Article 32 pdf)

Both Canada and Mexico structured key parts of their independent trade agreements to take advantage of their unique access to the U.S. market. Mexico and Canada generate billions in economic activity through exploiting the NAFTA loophole. China, Asia (writ large), and the EU enter into trade agreements with Mexico and Canada as back-doors into the U.S. market. So long as corporations can avoid U.S. tariffs by going through Canada and Mexico they would continue to exploit this approach.

By shipping parts to Mexico and/or Canada; and by deploying satellite manufacturing and assembly facilities in Canada and/or Mexico; China, Asia and to a lesser extent EU corporations exploited a loophole. Through a process of building, assembling or manufacturing their products in Mexico/Canada those foreign corporations can skirt U.S. trade tariffs and direct U.S. trade agreements. The finished foreign products entered the U.S. under NAFTA rules.

Why deal with the U.S. when you can just deal with Mexico, and use NAFTA rules to ship your product directly into the U.S. market?
This exploitative approach, a backdoor to the U.S. market, was the primary reason for massive foreign investment in Canada and Mexico; it was also the primary reason why candidate Donald Trump, now President Donald Trump, wanted to shut down that loophole and renegotiate NAFTA.

This loophole was the primary reason for U.S. manufacturers to relocate operations to Mexico. Corporations within the U.S. Auto-Sector could enhance profits by building in Mexico or Canada using parts imported from Asia/China. The labor factor was not as big a part of the overall cost consideration as cheaper parts and imported raw materials.

If the U.S. applies the same tariffs to Canada and Mexico we apply to all trade nations, then the benefit of using Canada and Mexico -by those trade nations- is lost. Corporations will no longer have any advantage, and many are likely to just deal directly with the U.S. This is the reason for retaining the Steel and Aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico.

Take away the market access and the ability for Mexico and Canada to broker themselves for economic benefit, and both nations would lose hundreds of billions in economic activity. It was the NAFTA fatal flaw.



From the POTUS Trump position, NAFTA always came down to two options:

Option #1 – renegotiate the NAFTA trade agreement to eliminate the loopholes. That would require Canada and Mexico to agree to very specific rules put into the agreement by the U.S. that would remove the ability of third-party nations to exploit the current trade loophole. Essentially the U.S. rules would be structured around removing any profit motive with regard to building in Canada or Mexico and shipping into the U.S.
Canada and Mexico would have to agree to those rules; the goal of the rules would be to stop third-party nations from exploiting NAFTA. The problem in this option is the exploitation of NAFTA currently benefits Canada and Mexico. It is against their interests to remove it. Knowing it was against their interests President Trump never thought it was likely Canada or Mexico would ever agree. But he was willing to explore and find out.

Option #2 – Exit NAFTA. And subsequently deal with Canada and Mexico individually with structured trade agreements about their imports. Canada and Mexico could do as they please, but each U.S. bi-lateral trade agreement would be written with language removing the aforementioned cost-benefit-analysis to third-party countries (same as in option #1.)
All nuanced trade-sector issues put aside, the larger issue is always how third-party nations will seek to gain access to the U.S. market through Canada and Mexico. [It is the NAFTA exploitation loophole which has severely damaged the U.S. manufacturing base.]
U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer had been working with Mexican and Canadian officials on different ways to remove this problem. However, in any solution where the one-sided NAFTA benefits are removed, Mexico and Canada lose. Therefore Canada and Mexico had no choice by to approach the negotiations as a zero-sum game.

In the USMCA Canada and Mexico have now accepted OPTION #1 and granted the U.S. approval and veto authority over any trade agreement made with a third party.

Canada and Mexico have taken a knee !!

Rips Democrat Welfare State in Pro-Trump Speech

Dairy Farmer: Trump’s USMCA Trade Deal Will Have ‘Huge Impact’
223

Scott Olson/Getty Images2 Oct 2018562
While attending the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin Tuesday, dairy farmer Vaughn Hillyard told MSNBC reporter Steve Maddox that President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) will have a “huge impact” on the industry.

A partial transcript is as follows:
MADDOX: Stephanie [Ruhle] was asking ‘is everybody squirting milk all over the place’ in celebration, because the president made this the central component of his NAFTA negotiation efforts. Are you celebrating yesterday’s deal?​


HILLYARD: Obviously we have to celebrate. We appreciate the president keeping us front and center in these trade negotiations. He put some fairness into the export market and he appreciates the hard work that all dairymen do; taking caring of their animals, taking care of the land and providing a nutritious product for our people in the United States.​


MADDOX: Now, Steve has 3,000 heads just south of Fresno, California, you’re third-generation, your son is fourth-generation, there’s about 40,000 dairy farms still in operation, how big of a deal, how much of an impact have on the future of dairy in the United States?​


HILLYARD: It’s going to be a huge impact allowing the markets to work with fairness. Dairy puts two and a half times more influx into the economy of the local rural economies and local communities. It’s huge for the health of America​


MADDOX: Are president says ‘now with 3.6 percent of the Canadian marketplace will include U.S. dairy,’ how much of an impact, what does that mean for your operation?​


HILLYARD: That allows us to move our products of dairy into there needs and access to there market. We give them access to ours already. So really, it’s a non-tariff thing and it’s going to be very beneficial to us.​

Jumpin’ Ju-Ju Bones: ADP September Payrolls Grew by 230,000 in September….
Posted on October 3, 2018by sundance

Hold on to your MAGA caps there’s a winner wonderland ahead. According to the latest ADP private payroll release today, private sector payrolls grew by a stunning 230,000 jobs in September. [They were anticipating 185k] Massive jobs gains amid small, medium and large sized companies (report here).

This comes on the heels of the latest stats on paychecks which show *average* wage gains around 2.6% over last year. Key word “average“. There are multiple job sectors with wage increases of four to seven percent; well above the rate of consumer price inflation.



(Via CNBC) Job growth surged in September to its highest level in seven months as the economy put up another show of strength, according to a report Wednesday from ADP and Moody’s Analytics.​
Private companies added 230,000 more positions for the month, the best level since the 241,000 jobs added in February and well ahead of the 168,000 jobs added in August.​

The total was well ahead of the 185,000 jobs expected by economists surveyed by Refinitiv (formerly Thomson Reuters). Construction grew by 34,000 as goods-producing industries overall contributed 46,000 to the final count. (read more)​
In my ongoing opinion, it becomes very important here to dismiss most of the current financial punditry when they discuss the sustainability of economic growth and expansion of wages and capital investment.

Several years ago CTH pointed out there was a complete disconnect in the economic analysis from Wall Street and Main Street. Indeed, there is a disconnect in economic theory which has been driven by 30 years of ‘globalism’, and trade economics based around a forecast of the diminished U.S. manufacturing sector.

President Trump has smashed the “service-driven-economy” approach; and through well constructed policy he has begun a process to broaden the base of the economy overall. The direction of current ‘America-First’ domestic investment is toward manufacturing, processing, construction, right here in the U.S. America is currently in a process of building baselines, the factories and plants, for long-term independent internal growth.

CTH noted that during the transition from a Wall Street (global) economy to a Main Street (nationalistic) economy; we would enter a new dimension within the U.S. economy that would defy traditional quantification – thus it is not predictable. {Go Deep}

Under the America-First MAGAnomic approach the only limit to GDP growth is the speed at which new investment can be turned into production. As this production comes on line the productivity within the production will drive higher.
This new dimension is happening within our borders and not connected to “global markets”. The policy is designed NOT TO BE impacted by global markets. The U.S. is becoming more self-sufficient and industrial again.

Therefore the traditional financial class, all economic models based around global supply chains, multinational corporate activity and the inherent matrix of exploited international labor and material, is becoming increasingly DISCONNECTED from having any impact on the U.S. economy.

We are in the space between two economic engines: Wall Street and Main Street.

The MAGAnomic emphasis is fueling Main Street growth. Simultaneously this is having massive positive impact on jobs and wages. The growth of Main Street jobs and wages are having a psychological effect on the U.S. Stock Market; and contributing to the profits of the corporations within the market. However, over time the multinational corporations will see less financial benefit, and the biggest returns will be in domestic corporations who are going to gain more business from activity within U.S. borders.

Watch.

It’s happening.

The pundits are trying to figure out how this growth rate can continue. It can continue because, in essence, we are rebuilding the inside of the U.S. after decades of neglect.
Here’s Kudlow… Even he has a tough time explaining it:

Unemployment 3.7%





The American Economy Added Just 134,000 Jobs in September, Unemployment Drops to Lowest Level Since 1969

5 Oct 2018112

Despite fears that trade disputes and rising tariffs could weigh on the economy, hiring continues to grow. On Thursday, the government reported that new unemployment claims fell more than expected to 207,000.
Economists had predicted the economy would add 180,000 jobs and the unemployment rate would fall to 3.8 percent.
Average hourly earnings rose 2.8 percent compared with a year ago, in line with forecasts. The average workweek was unchanged at 34.5 hours.

September included hurricane Florence, which hit North Carolina and South Carolina hard. It’s likely that took a toll on jobs for the month.
Past months were revised upward, adding 80,000 jobs. August’s report went from 201,000 to 270,000. July’s jobs rose from an initial report of 147,000 to 165,000. The twelve-month average rose to 201,000 jobs from 190,000 before today’s report.

Trump Approval Hits 50 Percent, a 7-Week High in Rasmussen Poll

Half of likely American voters approve of how President Donald Trump is handling his job, according to an Oct. 4 Rasmussen poll

In Rasmussen’s daily polling, Trump hasn’t hit 50 percent approval since Aug. 14; his high-water mark was 59 percent on Jan. 26, 2017, several days after his inauguration.

In the latest poll, 37 percent of likely voters approved of Trump strongly, while 40 percent strongly disapproved.

“Working hard, thank you!” Trump commented in a Facebook post sporting a picture with “50%” in large font.

The poll is based on a telephone survey of 1,500 likely voters conducted on Oct. 1-3; it has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

While Rasmussen consistently posts results more favorable to Republicans than other pollsters, it was also the most accurate in predicting the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Over Oct. 2-3, a YouGov survey gave Trump recorded 46 percent approval among registered voters (pdf).

Trump has worked intensely to energize his base ahead of the upcoming midterm elections. He held three rallies in four days from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2—one in Ohio, two in Tennessee, and has more planned for Rochester, Minnesota; Topeka, Kansas; Council Bluffs, Iowa; and Erie, Pennsylvania.

Republicans depend on keeping majorities in both the House and Senate to keep rolling out Trump’s agenda.

Including two special elections, there will be 35 Senate seats up for grabs come Election Day on Nov. 6. Of those, 23 are currently held by Democrats and two by independents—Bernie Sanders and Angus King, who are allied with Democrats. Republicans currently only hold eight seats.

In addition, voters will decide on all 435 voting seats in the House of Representatives, where Republicans currently hold 235 seats versus the Democrats’ 193.

Republicans are now feeling just as pumped about the midterms as Democrats, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll (pdf). In July, 68 percent of Republicans considered the elections “very important” compared to 78 percent of Democrats. In the Oct. 1 poll, the gap narrowed to 80 percent Republican versus 82 percent Democrat.

“On November 6, you will head to the polls, hopefully, in one of the most important Congressional elections of our lifetime,” Trump said Oct. 2 at the Southaven, Miss., rally.

“The only reason to vote Democrat is if you are tired of winning.”

Amazing that his polling numbers are consistent even with all the crap the media has tossed at him...with the help of Obama's DOJ, CIA and the UK/AU/NZ Intelligence. If the media was halfway fair/balanced, he'd be in the 70% range.

Singer Kid Rock, Kanye West and other musicians arrived at the White House Thursday for the signing of the Music Modernization Act.

The Music Modernization Act ensures “artists who released records prior to 1972 are paid royalties from digital services, and streamlining the process for those services to obtain music-licensing rights,” the White House said.

Kid Rock, a YUGE Trump supporter, got a little snarky with a reporter as he was walking into the White House Thursday morning.
