Blackmail Confirmed, Navy Secretary Richard Spencer Removed by Defense Secretary Mark T Esper…
Posted on November 24, 2019 by sundance

If you’ve followed our CTH review, research and analysis of the issues at hand, you will understand our position was that this situation, if true, had a very clear command expectation from U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

It has just been announced that Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has requested the resignation of Navy Secretary Richard Spencer (pictured below) for violating the unified chain of command, blackmailing the President of the United States with an ultimatum, and hiding the threat from the Secretary of Defense.


WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper asked for the resignation of Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer on Sunday after losing confidence in him over his handling of the case of a Navy SEAL accused of war crimes in Iraq, the Pentagon said.​
Spencer’s resignation came in the wake of the controversial case of Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, a Navy SEAL who was accused of war crimes on a 2017 deployment. He was acquitted of murder but convicted in July of posing with the corpse of a captive.​
Esper asked for Spencer’s resignation after learning that he had privately proposed to White House officials that if they did not interfere with proceedings against Gallagher, then Spencer would ensure that Gallagher was able to retire as a Navy SEAL, with his Trident insignia.​


.
Whoah. Yep. He offered the WH a "drug deal" which one should never do.

Bill Still quotes Sundance from CTH and also explains very well how President Trump is beating China and beating them badly in the trade war.

Eric Parscale is Trump's social media manager; he releases stats on the people that they get information on at Trump rallies. I consistently am seeing 20%-30% identified Dems, and 20%-30% minorities in attendence. That does NOT bode well for the Dems in 2020.

There are also currently 3 polls showing Trump with 33-34% black approval...if he gets double+ what the GOP normally does with minority votes, it's landslide time for 2020.

Sacrebleu! – USTR Lighthizer Announces 100% Countervailing Duties on $2.4 Billion of French Products…
Posted on December 2, 2019 by sundance

The synergy, flow and timing of the U.S. trade and economic team is just a marvel; a brilliant assembly of perfectly in-tune economic and trade professionals.



As President Trump touched down in the U.K. to attend the two-day NATO summit, United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer announces the completion of a Section 301 review of France’s Digital Services Tax (DST).

After determining the value of the French tax on U.S. internet services at $2.4 billion; Lighthizer announces a 100% countervailing duty on a carefully selected $2.4 billion in French imports.

Obviously the agenda for the bilateral NATO meeting between U.S. President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron just changed. LOL, you have to love Team USA.

Oh, but wait, wait… it gets better….

We have to remember, THIS $2.4 billion U.S. tariff against France would be on top of the $7.5 billion (per year) countervailing duty recently won from the Airbus subsidy case in the WTO…. and by law France cannot retaliate.

Oh my, President Trump strolls into the NATO bilat with Macron while holding a $10 billion legally justified countervailing tariff position. How’d ya like ‘dem grapes?

Macron: “No matter what I try, he just keeps winning”…

May: “Oh, Emmanuel you don’t have to tell me. If you only knew”…

Macron: “What is this, this mysterious power, he has?”..

May: “I hear they call it MAGA something-or-other”…

Macron: …{{{heavy sigh}}}

May: “You need to call Justin now. He’s picking us off one by one”…

What the state run media script readers and talking heads cannot believe is that President Trump has destroyed their ability to shape public opinion.
Their power over the vast majority of the American population is gone. And President Trump is just getting started on them!

Black & Decker relocating to Texas from China

Black & Decker

Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) today announced it will expand its U.S. manufacturing footprint with a new CRAFTSMAN manufacturing plant in Fort Worth, TX. The groundbreaking for the 425,000-square-foot facility will take place in summer 2019, and the plant is expected to be completed in late 2020.

The new plant in Fort Worth will manufacture a wide range of CRAFTSMAN mechanics tools, including sockets, ratchets, wrenches and general sets. The plant will also leverage some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies available to optimize productivity and sustainability, including pre-flattening steel technologies to improve material yield by almost 25 percent, as well as water and energy management technologies to reduce resource consumption. The Fort Worth plant will employ approximately 500 full-time employees to support the facility.

Last month, Stanley Black & Decker also opened a new 23,000-square-foot Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence, called “Manufactory 4.0”, in Hartford, Conn. The facility is the focal point of the company’s global Industry 4.0 “smart factory” initiative, housing a team of approximately 50 Industry 4.0 experts focused on accelerating the company’s adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies and building upskilling programs to help prepare the company’s workforce for today’s digital-led manufacturing environment.

Why do Americans still give this person air-time?

I can't understand this, for the life of me.


To me he has this 'come and punch me in the face look', that I just can't ignore.

2019 in Review: US Economy Strong, Entering the Longest Expansion in History
This article is part of a special Epoch Times series reviewing 2019
BY EMEL AKAN - December 25, 2019

The U.S. economy proved remarkably resilient in 2019, defying recession fears that dominated the headlines throughout the year. The economy has entered the longest expansion in American history, surpassing the economic boom of the 1990s.

United States consumers, buoyed by the strong labor market, have continued to drive economic growth during the past year against a backdrop of weak business sentiment.

Increased hiring and rising wages have powered consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of the U.S. economy. The stock market also rose steadily throughout the year, boosting household income and allowing people to spend more.

“The consumer is really driving growth” and hasn’t been impacted by weakness in manufacturing, export, and business investment, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said during a press conference on Oct. 30.

The trade dispute with China hasn’t affected consumer spending, either. Despite tariffs on Chinese imports, changes in retail prices kept pace with broader inflation, mainly due to China’s devaluation of its currency, according to economists.

The United States economy grew at an annual rate of 2.1 percent in the third quarter; growth for 2019 is predicted to be 2.3 percent, weaker than last year’s 3 percent.

However, the slowdown is worldwide, and the U.S. economy held up relatively well compared to other advanced economies, according to Gary Cohn and Kevin Hassett, former White House economic advisers.

The United States “is the only Group of Seven countries that will post growth above 2 percent this year,” they wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, adding that tax reform boosted productivity and wages.

The United States economy expanded for a record 126th straight month in December, the longest expansion on record. And the country finished an entire decade without entering a recession, for the first time ever, according to a CNBC report.

Meanwhile, the global economy recorded its weakest growth in the past 10 years, according to the International Monetary Fund. Rising trade tensions, poor business climate, and activity, as well as country-specific weaknesses in emerging markets, have been a significant drag on global growth in 2019.

Trump has called the United States economy, “the envy of the world.”

It’s also been a good year for U.S. stocks. The market valuation of the United States stock market has recently climbed to a record 1.5 times gross domestic product.

Global slowdown and trade risks, however, weighed on business confidence in the United States. The trade war with China, in particular, led United States firms to slow their investment decisions in 2019. Economists, however, started to see a silver lining.

“Business equipment investment remains weak, related to the global slowing in manufacturing activity,” Citigroup economists wrote in a global economic outlook report.

“However, there are signs that global manufacturing weakness is bottoming,” they said, adding that a pickup in United States domestic activity could also boost equipment investment and manufacturing in the first half of 2020.

Fed Policy

Despite the solid economic activity, downside risk from slowing global growth and trade tensions led the U.S. central bank to cut its benchmark federal funds rate three times in 2019. The Federal Reserve slashed its target interest rate by a combined 75 basis points in July, September, and October.

Fed officials, however, signaled that the current cycle of cutting rates is over. They stated that monetary policy is currently “in a good place” and that a “material reassessment” of the outlook would be necessary to ease policy further.

“This suggests a higher bar” for future rate reductions, Citigroup economists suggested but added that interest rate cuts would be more likely than rate increases in 2020.

Strong Dollar
The strong United States economy has continued to attract investment in 2019 from all over the world because of the perceived safety of United States markets. As a result, the U.S. dollar has risen to a record high relative to emerging market currencies. Geopolitical tensions also boosted demand for the dollar.

The dollar’s high value relative to other currencies will likely continue in 2020, according to the Institute of International Finance.

“The major driver of the dollar is excess demand for dollar-denominated stocks and bonds, and other assets,” Robert Scott, senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute, told The Epoch Times.

“We’ve got a problem with too much capital coming into the United States,” he said, adding that the trade deficit is widening as the strong dollar keeps making imports cheaper and United States exports more expensive.

Trade Wins

In December, President Donald Trump got a major win on trade after the United States–Mexico–Canada trade agreement passed the House. Also, the United States and China announced that they would sign the “phase one” trade deal in January.

These two deals will allow Trump to go into 2020 with a very strong economy, according to Stephen Moore, an economist, and former Trump campaign adviser.

The state of the economy is the overriding factor in how people vote, Moore told The Epoch Times.

“I believe that Americans vote with their pocketbooks. ‘It’s the economy, stupid,’” he said, recalling the famous motto coined by Bill Clinton’s campaign strategist that summed up Clinton’s election in 1992.

The trade deals would boost Trump’s reelection chances in 2020, Moore said.

Fiscal Future

While the economy is in a stable position, the fiscal future deserves more attention in 2020, according to Jim Glassman, head economist for JPMorgan Chase’s commercial banking operation.

As of November’s end, the United States government’s budget deficit over the past 12 months exceeded $1 trillion for the second month in a row, due to a surge in federal spending. And the federal government’s debt surpassed $23 trillion for the first time in history.

“While recessionary and other economic fears loomed large in 2019, the expansion proved quite resilient,” Glassman wrote in a report.

“That said, fiscal reforms may be needed in 2020 to keep the United States on a sustainable path.”

Team blue fools don't seem to understand that an impeachment process without evidence of criminality on strict party lines will just cause people to rally to the president. ...their president. It's stupid stupid stupid. Particularly as they know the illegitimate US Senate will not be removing the man from office anyway.

They know what they are doing, it's a big club, but very exclusive. It's one team, one goal -everything is right on track.

Sure it's one team, but that one team still benefits from the vast majority of Amerikans believing dumbocrats oppose repuke policies. Yet even the most addle minded twinkie in hoboken will know this is politically motivated nonsense when the blue team controlled house votes, on strict party lines, to impeach and the red team controlled senate then votes to ignore. It'd have been better for the one party to do nothing here...as now they've made a divisive president into a victim. It's not like Trump needed the help to defeat the clowns team blue is going to nominate either.

Even IF the one party secretly wants Trump to win(unlikely) all they've done here is to make all the demonrats in congress look like purely political animals that don't respect the Constitutionally enshrined presidential election process.

Nobody ever in our lifetimes pushed back at them this hard so they have no idea what else to do. Unfortunately for the left then Donald Trump and now President Trump not only enjoys a fight he lives for this exact kind of fight. He has spent his professional life honing his skills, literally on the job training just for the job he has now. The highest stakes, the longest odds, winning all or nothing is his kind of game.

President Trump has drawn the left right into the type of fight he lives for. The man is not only enjoying himself he is having the time of his life!

I'm enjoying the hell out of every minute of this.

I didn't think they'd even call an impeachment vote, and if they did, it'd be due to some shocking new evidence of criminality. Nope. No evidence of anything, just a bunch of dikweeds telling voters they hate their choice and they'd like to overturn the result of the last election. This is much more an attack on 63m Americans that cast a vote for Donald J Trump in 2016 than it was a swipe at the president himself.

...as if Americans needed more reasons to hate the parasites in congress. I recently saw a jewtube clip of an interview with naner baner piglosi and she basically admitted that she knew shrub 43 lied about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but didn't want him impeached. ...but Trump? Yeah let's impeach him...because we like him even less. What a bunch of aholes.

Impeachment is a process for the lawful removal of a president that's committed CRIMES while in office. It's not your personal fucking play thing to use against the duly elected executive because you personally dislike him. Two faced fukking hag.

Fed: “We don’t have a really good understanding of why it’s been so difficult to get inflation back up”…
Posted on January 4, 2020 by sundance

A good day for a MAGAnomic pause and reminder…

In 2015 we discussed candidate Trump’s economic positions and how they would impact the economy. CTH anticipated that MAGAnomics would be reversing three decades of federal reserve monetary policy. After about a year of analysis and discussion, in 2016 CTH presented a theory: “A new Dimension in Modern Economics“.



CTH shared a possibility of what could happen if Trump Economic Policy was shifted to favor Main St. over Wall St.

One aspect we presented was how Federal Reserve monetary policy would be oddly disconnected from its ability to influence inflation… Today:
SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – The Federal Reserve could find itself fighting too-low inflation for years to come, San Francisco Federal Reserve President Mary Daly said on Friday, and may need a new policy framework to lift inflation back up to the Fed’s 2% goal.
“We don’t have a really good understanding of why it’s been so difficult to get inflation back up,” Daly said at the annual American Economics Association meeting in San Diego.​

But with global growth slowing and the populations of most advanced economies aging, Daly said, “this new ‘fighting inflation from below’ is going to be with us, I would argue, for a longer period of time than just a few years.” (read more)​
While the Federal Reserve is perplexed, the underlying reason for monetary policy to be incapable of impacting the rate of inflation is not too complex when you think about the focus of federal economic policy reversing in the era of Trump.

For 30-years +/- U.S. economic policy was geared toward Wall Street. Corporations looked to maximize profits, manufacturing was shipped overseas, jobs were lost and Main Street suffered. The Fed monetary policy followed the economic influences of a Wall Street created outcome. U.S. multinationals benefited; U.S. main street companies did not.

A Wall St. economic engine was created. The FED policy followed the new engine. The two entirely different economic engines then detached:
  • The Wall Street economy, an engine of sorts, is a “service driven” economy, with manufacturing of cheap imported goods done overseas.
  • The Main Street economy, again another engine, is a more balanced “manufacturing” economy; with a balance of imports and finished goods produced in the USA.
Bush, Clinton-Clinton, Bush-Bush and Obama-Obama terms focused on the Wall Street economy. However, Donald Trump focuses on the Main Street economy. In 2016, immediately after the election, we wrote about what we might expect to see happen:
2016 […] Understanding the distance between the real Main Street economic engine and the false Wall Street economic engine will help all of us to understand the scope of an upcoming economic lag; which, rather remarkably I would add, is a very interesting dynamic.
Think about these engines doing a turn about and beginning a rapid reverse. GDP can, and in my opinion, will, expand quickly. However, any interest rate hikes (monetary policy) intended to cool down that expansion -fearful of inflation- will take a long time to traverse the divide.​


Additionally, inflation on durable goods will be insignificant – even as international trade agreements are renegotiated. Why? Simply because the originating nations of those products are going to go through the same type of economic detachment described above.
Those global manufacturing economies will first respond to any increases in export costs (tariffs etc.), by driving their own productivity higher as an initial offset, in the same manner American workers went through in the past two decades. The manufacturing enterprise and the financial sector remain focused on the pricing.​


♦ Inflation on imported durable goods sold in America, while necessary, will ultimately be minimal during this initial period; and expand more significantly as time progresses and off-shored manufacturing finds less and less ways to be productive. Over time, durable good prices will increase – but it will come much later.
♦ Inflation on domestic consumable goods ‘may‘ indeed rise at a faster pace. However, it can be expected that U.S. wage rates will respond faster, naturally faster, than any monetary policy influence because inflation on fast-turn consumable goods becomes re-coupled to the ability of wage rates to afford them.​


The fiscal policy impact lag, caused by the distance between federal fiscal action and the domestic Main Street economy, will now work in our favor. That is, in favor of the middle-class. (full outline)
What we are seeing in 2019 is precisely this outcome.
