Donald Trump Just Had One of the Best Weeks in Presidential History

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This truly has been a week to remember, and not just because of impeachment.  – In fact, it could be argued that the idiotic ending to the Democrats’ impeachment sham turns out to only modestly important in the context of the other major  events that happened over the last seven days. The impeachment sham notwithstanding, President Trump just had what may well have been the greatest week of his entire presidency, and that is a truly great thing for America.

Let’s take a look at this truly momentous week:

Markets – This country has seldom seen a run in the stock markets like one seen over the past five trading days. The NASDAQ set a new record high on every one of those days, ending the week with a record closing streak of 8 consecutive trading days. The Dow and S&P 500 set new records on all but one day during the week. This is WINNING on such a grand scale that even the recession promoters in the corrupt mainstream news media have given up.

USMCA – San Fran Nan Pelosi was so embarrassed by her absurd articles of impeachment that, after sitting on the President’s signature trade deal for 8 months, she finally decided to bring it to a vote on the day after the impeachment vote took place. She and her pathetic, demented fellow Democrats desperately tried taking credit for this extremely favorable trade deal with our country’s two largest trading partners, but nobody was buying it. The Senate also approved the deal late in the week.

China Phase 1 trade deal – The President also reached a deal with America’s third-largest trading partner during the same week USMCA passed in congress. Again, this deal is extremely favorable to the United States and its farmers and consumers, and will, along with USMCA, set the U.S. economy up to have another year of roaring growth in 2020.

Durham closing in on Brennan – The week was filled with clear signals that the investigation led by U.S. Attorney John Durham and sanctioned by AG William Barr is real and closing in on the members of the Coup Cabal. The first signal came in a Thursday New York Times Deep State cover piece detailing the fact that Durham is now taking a very close look at ex-CIA Director/communist/radical Islam sympathizer John Brennan. Durham is seeking all of Brennan’s written, digital and phone records from his time at CIA, with a special focus on his 2016 communications with former FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen Jim Comey. Oh, my.

Barr pillories Comey in Fox News interview – In an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News later Thursday evening, AG Barr sent another clear signal that stuff is getting real with his and Durham’s investigation, slamming Comey for his blatant prevarications about his role in fixing the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princess and later effort to frame President Trump. If you haven’t watched Barr’s interview, you should. It will definitely make you feel better about things.

Rogers cooperating with Durham – Friday evening brought the delightful news that former NSA Director and national hero Admiral Mike Rogers has been cooperating with the Barr/Durham investigation for months now, according to a report in The Intercept. It was Adm. Rogers who, in mid-2016, discovered thousands of Obama-era violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702(17) surveillance process, and the hundreds of illegal unmaskings of U.S. citizens carried out by high Obama officials like Susan Rice and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power. It was also Adm. Rogers who discovered that Obama had bugged Trump Tower during the post-election transition and immediately warned then-President-elect Trump, after which the Transition team moved to a Trump-owned golf resort in New Jersey. The cooperation of Rogers proves the seriousness of the Barr/Durham effort.

Brexit Vote in Parliament – It received precious little notice in the corrupt, globalist U.S. media, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit plan received overwhelming approval in the new, post-election British Parliament. The House of Commons passed the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in a 358 to 234 vote. This sets the stage for Britain to formally withdraw from the globalist European Union by January 31, which in turn sets the stage for President Trump and PM Johnson to execute a massive trade deal between the two giant trading partners.

Impeachment – The President even managed to turn the Democrats’ sham impeachment vote into a net positive for him, holding another massive rally in Battle Creek, MI that began while the absurd vote was being counted. New polls issued simultaneous to and immediately after the vote showed public sentiment moving “massively in the president’s favor” according even to CNN’s own polling analysts. San Fran Nan’s stupid tactic of refusing to communicate the articles of impeachment over to the Senate will only add to the public’s growing disgust with her and her depraved, demented and despicable caucus in the House.

Judges, judges, and more judges – While San Fran Nan was counting her votes in the House, Cocaine Mitch was doing what he does best: Confirming 13 more Trump-appointed judges to the federal bench. This brings the total number of Trump judges added to the federal judiciary in just three years to a whopping 187. That, folks, is WINNING for the long-term.

Turning Point USA – President Trump capped off what was possibly the greatest single week of his presidency with a speech at the meeting of the group Turning Point USA. For those unfamiliar with it, Turning Point USA is a political action group organized by and for the Millennial generation. Conventional “wisdom” tells us that President Trump has a hard time connecting with the younger voting age public.

Take a look at he reception the President received from this group Saturday evening and judge for yourselves:

Any questions?

The Democrats are Cornered Animals: Expect Civil Unrest to Escalate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Every major U.S. stock market index once again finished the day’s trading at record highs on Friday. This came in the wake of the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee unanimously voting out their impeachment disgrace, which shows you how seriously the markets are taking that clown show. It also came in the wake of President Donald Trump’s announcement of the agreement to a major trade deal with China, which, along with the looming congressional approval of the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada, was really the most important event of the week for ordinary Americans.

Here’s a pretty picture of the numbers:

Image may contain: text

Democrats would be scared to death if they had any sense. But we all know the answer to that ‘if’, don’t we? – The entire Democrat impeachment clown show has been a giant exercise in group stupidity, but words cannot really capture just how incredibly stupid it was for the Democrats to hold Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing, at which they approved the drafting of their two idiotic articles of impeachment, on the very day that President Trump was scheduled to hold a campaign rally in Pennsylvania just a few hours after the hearing concluded.

For those who haven’t been paying close attention to how the presidential contest is shaping up for 2020, Pennsylvania is shaping up to most likely become the single most important battleground state. The Democrats have pretty much surrendered in Ohio, they have little chance of winning Florida, the President is making tremendous inroads in Minnesota and he now holds sizable leads over every potential Democrat nominee in Wisconsin.

The way things sit today, the entire contest could come down to two states the President won in 2016: Michigan and Pennsylvania, with PA being the bigger of the two prizes. So, for the Democrats to hold that committee hearing on that specific day was political miscalculation of epic proportions.

Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale collects a lot of information from those who attend the President’s massive rallies. The data he collects will assist the campaign in micro-targeting likely Trump voters in its get-out-the-vote efforts on Election Day.

The data from the Pennsylvania rally tells a story that, like Thursday’s landslide victory by Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party in the UK elections, is indicative of a likely Trump/GOP wave election building for next November.

Here are some of the key findings:

  • The rally was held in Hershey, PA, population of around 15,000 individuals;
  • The Trump Campaign was able to collect information from 23,207 identified voters, more than 8,000 more than the entire population of the city;
  • 82.5% of the attendees were Pennsylvanians – the remainder came in from neighboring states;
  • The rally was held in the Giant Center, capacity 12,500. This means that almost 11,000 mostly Pennsylvanians stood outside in the cold and sporadic rain for several hours to watch the President’s speech on the large monitors that are always set up outside the rally venues;
  • Think about this one, which is a trend the Campaign sees at all of these rallies: Just a little more than 20% of the attendees said they had voted in at least 1 of the last 4 presidential elections. So the President is firing up thousands of new potential voters in a state that was decided by a little over 40,000 votes in 2016;
  • Even worse for the Democrat Party, more than 20% of the attendees were registered Democrats. Yikes;
  • Contrary to the way in which these events are portrayed in the corrupt news media, 18% of those in attendance were non-white.

On the same day on which the President held this massive rally in Hershey, PA, Fauxcahontas held a campaign event in some bowling alley in Iowa, and Quid Pro Joe spoke to a crowd of tens of people in some classroom in some state he could not identify. Most of those tens of people were a captive audience of kids forced to attend.

Given all of the events of this week, is it any wonder that a new poll from Politico/Morning Consult – which almost certainly over-sampled Democrats – finds that fully 56% of registered votes believe the President will probably be re-elected next November?

This data helps to explain why the despicable Democrats in the House went down this tragic impeachment road. They’re panicked over the numbers they see; they know their own candidates are a collection of political midgets; their Party has no agenda other than taking our country down the pipe to Venezuelan-style socialism; and their Party is utterly devoid of real leadership.

So, they rolled the dice on an impeachment effort, hoping against hope that, with the help of their toadies in the national news media, they might create a groundswell of opposition to the President that would force Republicans to throw up their hands and abandon him. As Mitch McConnell assured everyone on Friday, that effort will certainly fail in the Senate.

This now leaves the radical leftist Democrats cornered and out of options. And we all know that leftists who are cornered and out of options always, invariably resort to escalating public unrest and violence.

2020 will be a dangerous year in America. Be careful out there.

That is all.

The UK Election Portends a Trump Landslide Coming in 2020

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Getting tired of all this #WINNING yet? No? Expect more today. – The S&P 500 and NASDAQ indexes again closed at all-time highs on Thursday on news of a pending deal in U.S./China trade talks and news of a landslide win in the UK elections by Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party. The Dow Jones Industrials had reached an all-time high in late-day trading before falling back slightly at the close. All three indexes were poised to open at new all-time highs in pre-market trading.

Speaking of that vote in the UK… – As we noted back on November 29, the Conservative Tories had been poised to regain massive majority control of Parliament according to all the polls, and for once, the polls were right. Even the exit polls came close to getting it right, projecting a likely final Tory majority of 368 seats, just 4 away from the final official number of 364 of the chamber’s 650 total seats.

Johnson will now control a 78-seat majority, the largest for any party since the Margaret Thatcher-led election in 1987. Meanwhile, the largely communist “Labor” Party is left with a paltry 203 seats, its fewest since the election held in 1935.

Some of the dynamics of this election will sound very familiar to U.S. voters; others will no doubt turn out to be predictive of those we will see in the U.S. elections in 2020, just as the July 2016 Brexit vote turned out to be predictive of the U.S. election results five months later.

Here are some examples:

  • Despite broad predictions that the British pound would crash after a landslide Johnson win, the value of the pound soared in post-election trading;
  • The same is true of the British stock market, with every major British index moving substantially higher in post-election trading;

All of that is reminiscent of wild election night 2016 predictions in the U.S. by hacks like the New York Times’s resident economist Paul Krugman that the U.S. economy would “never recover” from the Trump victory

  • The Tories achieved their landslide by breaking through what Brits like to call the “red wall” in England’s industrial areas in the north and “midlands.” The British media, unlike the U.S. media, properly associates the communists’ favored color of red with the Labor Party, and he color blue with the Conservatives. You can see what the country’s new election map looks like today below:

  • Thus, just as the U.S. was a virtual sea of Republican “red” following the 2016 elections, England is today a virtual sea of Tory “blue” following this election;
  • What does this breakthrough by the Conservatives in traditional blue-collar, industrial areas remind you of? If you said Donald Trump’s 2016 victories in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, you win the prize;
  • Trump’s soaring polling numbers with African Americans and other minority groups are today positioning him to pick off other traditionally Democrat states like Minnesota and New Mexico in next year’s elections;
  • Indeed, should the President pull anything close to the 34% of black voters who currently support him in a variety of national polls next year, the whole country outside of California, New York and Washington DC is basically up for grabs.

So, why did Johnson’s landslide happen now? Again, even that is eerily similar to the election dynamic building in the U.S. today. Simply put, the vast majority of Brits have grown weary of their wishes expressed in the resounding Brexit election win in 2016 being subverted by the Labor Party communists and globalist Conservatives, who have gone to extraordinarily-underhanded lengths to kill every Brexit plan that has come along.

Again, Americans, does that sound familiar?

Just as the public’s disgust with the antics of the Labor communists and duplicitous Tories finally built to the boiling point in the U.K., we can feel the public’s disgust with the antics of the Democrat communists and duplicitous, globalist Republicans building out here in Flyover Country. If the Democrats continue to just double-down on ever more-extreme attacks on the President, that disgust will have reached the boiling point by the time November 2020 rolls around.

In public life just as in private life, politicians reap what they sow. With their never-ending efforts to deny the American voters the fruits of their choice in the 2016 election, the Democrats are sowing the seeds of a blowout landslide in 2020.

I’m cool with that. You should be, too.

Addendum: And just like clockwork, the communist Laborites have created their own “resistance” movement, just like the communist Democrats did in the U.S. following the 2016 election:

Image

So. Damn. Tiresome.

This is literally a fight for the survival of free western democracies. Those on the radical left will never again accept an election defeat. They will fight to the bitter end. We must be prepared to do the same. Never forget that reality.

That is all.

British Election Will Provide a Preview of Trump’s 2020 Re-Election

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

When voters in the United Kingdom went to the polls on June 23, 2016 to vote on the referendum on whether to leave the European Union (Brexit) or remain in it (remain), the polls all predicted – by an average of 8% – that “remain” would win handily. But of course we all know that the actual vote ended with a 52-48% Brexit victory.

Five months later, all the polls predicted Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential contest, with the New York Times at one point giving Clinton a 99% chance of prevailing.  In the end, Mr. Trump prevailed with a near-landslide in the electoral college, the only measure that matters in our system.

Keen observers understood that the two elections were fought on basically the same issues: economic malaise, open borders, and general national decline brought to both nations by the forces of globalism and the politicians who impose it on their populations. Voters in favor of Brexit and Trump were under-polled by biased polling organizations, many of whom are run by corrupt media outlets determined to slant their reporting in favor of “remain” and Clinton. A few observers – including Today’s Campaign Update – predicted that the Brexit vote would actually serve as precursor to a Trump victory, which is clearly what happened.

Since those elections were held in 2016, the corrupt and disloyal forces of globalism in both nations have attempted to regroup and reclaim power, while doing everything in their power to deny the voters the fruits of their respective victories. In Britain, Brexit agreements negotiated with leaders in the EU by Prime Minister Theresa May were repeatedly rebuffed in Parliament, with many disloyal members of her own Conservative Party joining forces with the Labor Party – led by the mendacious and corrupt Jeremy Corbin, Britain’s version of San Fran Nan – to vote down every iteration of the proposal.

That failure to deliver led first to the Conservatives losing their parliamentary majority, and ultimately to May’s being replaced earlier this year by early Brexit advocate Boris Johnson. When Johnson saw his own initial proposed Brexit deal voted down in September,  that in turn led to a purging of disloyal Conservatives from the Party, and Johnson’s demanding a so-called “snap election” in which Johnson hopes to win a new mandate from the voters.

With that vote scheduled to take place on December 12, today’s polls in Britain now reflect a decided pro-Conservative, pro-Johnson, pro-Brexit sentiment among the country’s voters. The latest poll from YouGov projects that Johnson’s Party will score its largest landslide win since Lady Margaret Thatcher won her third term in office in 1987. YouGov projects a net Conservative gain of 42 seats, which would give it a clear majority of Parliament’s 650 seats. Although other polls also project a major Conservative victory, the YouGov result seems particularly significant since it was the only major poll to correctly predict the Conservative Party’s big losses in the 2017 elections.

If the December 12 vote does deliver a Conservative majority approaching the 68-seat advantage YouGov predicts, it would manifest the demand from British citizens that Parliament finally act on the mandate they delivered three and a half years ago. Good for them.

So, what does that mean for next November’s elections in the United States? Well, let’s think about it: What has been taking place in the U.S since November 2016? Just as in Britain, the forces of globalism have been working tirelessly, employing every dishonest tool at their corrupt disposal to deny Trump voters the fruits of their victory. President Trump has been subjected to an unending series of hoax ‘scandals’ and fake investigations and clown show impeachment hearings and congressional obstruction and all the fake news our corrupt media establishment can produce, all in an effort by the powers of globalism to regain their lost power.

American voters are becoming weary of the refusal by the Democrat Party to accept the results of the 2016 election, with polls showing more and more Democrats showing up at Trump rallies and pledging their support for the President. This is especially true in the African American community, where multiple recent polls now indicate 34% support for President Trump. If the President can achieve half that much support from the Black community, next year’s election will become an historic landslide.

So, keep an eye on the results from the December 12 voting across the Pond. Just as it did in 2016, the result of that election is likely to eventually serve as a precursor of things to come next November.

That is all.

America’s Second Civil War is Three Years Old

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The whole strategy revolves around wearing you down. – Americans who inhabit what the coastal elites condescendingly refer to “flyover country,” that vast center of the nation that turned into a sea of red on Election Day 2016 to elect Donald Trump to the presidency, are being forced to make a choice when it comes to their President. The relentless, neverending coup efforts being led by the Obama-loyal Deep State are designed to force you ultimately get to the point where you will throw up your hands and say ‘go ahead, get rid of Trump, just give me some peace.’

Image result for county by county election map 2016

Our nation today is in a different kind of Civil War, one that began in July, 2016 when James Comey’s FBI coordinated with John Brennan’s CIA to mount a spying and entrapment effort against the Trump Campaign. It is a war of attrition, a war built on the relentless pushing of Big Lie after Big Lie after Big Lie.

It is a war being mounted by squeamish, disloyal Republicans, the entirety of the Democrat Party, vast pockets of treasonous corruption within the Justice Department, the FBI and the Intelligence Community, 95% of the nation’s news media and about the same percentage of the entertainment industry. The war is supported by most of our institutions of higher “learning” and even filters down into our public schools.

It is a war on our senses, a war on our stamina, a war on our minds and a war on our children and grandchildren. It is a war in which we now cannot watch an episode of a sitcom or a crime drama without being assaulted with anti-Trump messages that insult us and our intelligence. It is a war in which we cannot wear a red cap or put a bumper sticker on our car expressing the desire to keep our country great without fear of being assaulted on the street or in a restaurant.

It is a war in which the simple fact of being white and male, or African American and conservative makes you a potential target of publicly-condoned derision and personal peril. It is a war in which you can lose your business or job if you don’t refer to a man wearing gaudy make-up and a dress as “ma’am.” It is a war in which giant social media monopolies are allowed to discriminate against you if their 100%-leftist staff do not approve of your thoughts and words.

It is a war in which associates of President Trump have their homes broken into in the middle of the night, are perp-walked before CNN’s cameras and held in solitary confinement while awaiting trial on charges that the DOJ investigated and refused to prosecute years before. It is a war in which enemies of President Trump can have multiple criminal referrals levied against them by the Inspector General and walk away scot free to lucrative book deals and six-figure “contributor” contracts with leftist fake news cable channels.

It is a war in which elected members of congress willingly do everything they can to prevent a duly-elected President and his administration from being able to conduct the nation’s foreign policy. It is a war in which the nation was held captive for three years by a “Russia Collusion” narrative tirelessly pushed by the fake news media and investigated by multiple congressional committees and a “special counsel” who conducted himself like the head of the American Gestapo. It is a war in which the special counsel’s report fully exonerates the President of any wrongdoing, only to have the Democrats and the fake news media double down on the Big Lie and pretend that it convicted him.

It is a war in which the Intelligence Community is now coordinating with the Democrats, the media and the entertainment industry in the next Big Lie, this one having to do with a phone call between the President and his peer in Ukraine. Even though it is now transparently obvious that this is just another Big Lie, we can count on the Democrat/media complex of propaganda to double down on their latest false narrative.

We can expect them to do that because the strategy here is not to have you actually believe any of the nonsense they’re pushing. The strategy is simply to wear you down, to ultimately make you bend the knee and give up on this silly quest to keep America a great and independent nation.

When this latest coup/impeachment effort crashes and burns in spectacular fashion, we can expect the forces aligned against Trump and his supporters to simply make up another false narrative and keep the coup going.

The same thing is happening right now in Britain, where Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister elected to complete the Brexit effort the voters approved three long years ago, is under a similar relentless assault by that country’s deep state, disloyal lawmakers and fake news media. As I wrote in one of the earliest Campaign Updates way back in 2016, Brexit and Trump are essentially the same political movement, a movement that pits those who love their country and want it to remain a strong, independent nation against the forces of globalism and one-world-government.

The Brits who support Brexit have held firm through all that time and grown stronger. Trump’s base of support has also held firm and grown larger. That base has remained unshakable not because they necessarily approve of every aspect of Trump’s personal behavior, but because they understand what is at stake here, and whose side Trump is on.

Because at the end of the day in this tiresome Civil War, Trump is on the side of Americans and America. I don’t know about the rest of you, but they won’t ever wear me down.

That is all.

Brexit’s Success is as Important to Donald Trump as it is to Boris Johnson

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Pay attention to Brexit. – While our fake U.S. news media establishment has spent the week obsessing over President Donald Trump making a mark on a map with a Sharpie, some major, real events have been taking place across the Great Pond, in jolly old England.

Ok, well, things aren’t exactly jolly in London right now, as a political war between the EU-captive elites and Brexit-favoring Prime Minister Boris Johnson has broken out into full public view. As we have seen in America with the “Never Trump” fake conservative subversives joining ranks with the radical, anti-Trump left, so are we now seeing the fake Torries unmasking themselves as the deceitful, compromised hacks they truly are. More than 20 of these EU useful idiots were ejected from the British conservative party this week for their failure to support Johnson’s efforts to affect a final Brexit from the EU by October, and several others resigned voluntarily, including Johnson’s own brother.

As you watch all of this play out, complete with video clips of the comical goings-on inside Parliament, it’s important to keep in mind that Brexit is in fact the law of the land in Britain, having been decided by direct election way back in the summer of 2016, an election that wasn’t really close. Yet, the party that was provided a majority to make it all happen keeps being sabotaged by the disloyal enemies within its midst.

Sounds a lot like the Republican Party, right? Right.

In reality, the ongoing debate over Brexit is a clear reflection of America’s debate over border security. While the U.S. does not have direct national elections over policy decisions, every poll ever taken on the border issue shows a vast majority of citizens favor strong action to secure the border with Mexico. There are no exceptions to this reality. Yet, when the GOP had majorities in both houses of congress and a President in the White House, all efforts to enact policy reforms to the nation’s immigration laws were scuttled by the disloyal enemies within its midst, including then-Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

In the U.S. immigration debate, the EU is personified by the partnership between U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its giant corporate members who want to keep the flow of cheap labor coming into our country regardless of the ultimate political consequences, and the national Democratic Party, which will be the ultimate beneficiary of those political consequences. This is all crystal clear and really not debatable.

Athwart all of that mendacity yelling “stop!” you have President Trump, the American counterpart to PM Johnson. Interestingly, President Trump may well be able to play a significant role in resolving Johnson’s current inability to move Brexit to final fruition. That potential ability all comes down – as it does with China – to trade and tariffs.

Like China, the EU nations have enjoyed the financial and economic benefits of 74 years of American stupidity in the trade arena, placing all manner of tariffs and other trade roadblocks on U.S. goods while America did little or nothing to retaliate. Several of the EU nations, most obviously Germany, who have been major trading partners with China, are already experiencing the power of U.S. retaliatory tariffs in an indirect way. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her EU peers are no doubt already living in fear of what their lives would look like in the face of direct U.S. tariffs placed on their own countries’ products.

But here’s the thing: These disloyal British MPs who are refusing to allow Johnson to comply with the voters’ Brexit mandate are heavily tied in with and influenced by the EU, whether monetarily or otherwise. Given that, President Trump has the means to influence those MPs indirectly by – guess what? – announcing retaliatory tariffs on EU member country imports, exactly as he has done with China.

Mr. Trump might also tie those tariffs to a new, simultaneous trade deal with Great Britain – a concept he and PM Johnson have already publicly discussed – a move that could incentivize a mass relocation of manufacturing operations and jobs from continental Europe to the British Isles. Think about it.

The President fully understands, better than anyone else, that he and PM Johnson are two lonely warriors in the battle against open-borders globalism. The ultimate achievement of Brexit from the EU is a vitally important front in that battle.

Don’t be surprised at all if, at some point this month, you see the President announce a new round of tariffs not on China, but on the recalcitrant and abusive nations in the EU. Because Donald Trump always plays to win, and in this case, winning for America means Brexit, and Johnson, must win first.

That is all.

Patience is the Key to Supporting President Trump’s China Policies

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Funny how this all works. – The key for being a fan of President Donald Trump’s approach to dealing with China is simple: Stay calm and wait a few days for things to work out before judging any action he takes.

If you’re panic-prone, things looked fairly bleak last Friday. The stock market had a terrible day, with the Dow dropping 600+ points after China announced a new round of tariffs on more American goods. Seemingly making matters worse (at least if you’re panic-prone), the President responded by announcing on Twitter that he would respond to China’s latest provocation by placing new tariffs on Chinese goods and raising already-existing tariffs. Raising the stakes even higher, Mr. Trump also called out China and its President Xi Jinping, for continuing to smuggle deadly fentanyl into the United States, promising harsh consequences if things did not change.

Yikes.

If you obsess over the market futures and other market minutiae, things still looked bad when you went to bed Sunday night, with Dow futures down more than 200 points and falling. Then you got up this morning, turned on CNBC or Fox Business and, presto change-o, the Dow futures were up 170! So what happened while you were sleeping to cause such a major shift in the outlook for Monday?

Well, the first thing was the announcement by President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of a big, shiny new trade deal between our two countries. Next you had Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson discussing the progress of negotiations on a major new trade deal between those two longtime trading partners. Combine those with the new deal with South Korea, the USMCA and ongoing trade negotiations with major trading partners like Brazil and India, and the markets were reminded China is far from the only game in town where the Trump trade agenda is concerned.

What is taking place here is a global resetting of international trade, a 50-years-late ending of the post-WWII Marshall Plan, a plan in which the United States agreed to take it on the chin where international trade was concerned in order to help rebuild the economies of all the countries, like Germany and China and Japan, which had attempted to destroy the free world just a few years earlier.

The original thought process behind the Marshall Plan was that it would remain in effect for about 25 years at most. Here we are 74 years later, and we finally have a President in place who has the intestinal fortitude and negotiating skills necessary to start the Great Unwinding.

Then there’s the ongoing issue of Chinese government-sanctioned smuggling of fentanyl, the greatest deadly drug epidemic of modern times. Late yesterday evening, Mexican officials announced they had seized a Chinese shipment containing 25.75 TONS of fentanyl, a drug that can be lethal with the consumption of just a few grams. The shipment originated in Shanghai, and was headed for Culiacán, Sinaloa, headquarters for the Sinaloa Cartel, whose target market is the United States of America.

Folks, that amount of fentanyl is enough to kill every man, woman, child, dog, cat, and Baltimore rat in the United States many, many times over. That shipment is about as close to an act of outright war any country can commit against another without firing a shot or flying a jet into a skyscraper.

Funny thing: Just a couple of hours after that seizure of Chinese fentanyl was made public, the Chinese government called President Trump and then publicly announced that it was ready to re-start trade negotiations in earnest.

Wow, what a coincidence, huh?

Now, very little of this will make its way into the pages of the New York Times or the air time of CNN or MSNBC or any of the three broadcast networks, all of whom roundly ridiculed President Trump for his “rash” remarks last Friday. But here we sit, just three days later, and he has been proved 100% right and fully justified, yet again, by subsequent events.

It is amazing how consistently this phenomenon happens. Why, it’s almost as if the President of the United States knows things that our fake news media is not privy to. Go figure.

Mark Penn, who is a very smart guy in most ways, has a piece in The Hill this morning in which he correctly notes that the President should keep pushing China but then incorrectly advises him to stay off of Twitter. Penn of course wrote this in a panic over the President’s Friday tweets.  Had he waited just half a day longer, he’d have probably noticed that everything Mr. Trump tweeted on Friday had by Monday been borne out and supported by subsequent events.

So, next time you see President Trump tweet out something that seems outrageous or non-reflective of reality as you know it at that moment in time, wait a few days and see how your reality changes before you react negatively to it.

You’ll be glad you did.

That is all.
