Friday News Roundup: Biden Pulls a John Kerry and the BLMFL Opens its Season to Boos

Never Forget. – Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11, and New York City Democrats have banned events to memorialize that awful day in their city this year.

Let’s all of us do the right thing and take a moment to remember.

CORONAPANIC UPDATE – More than 20,000 college students returning to campus this fall have now tested “positive” for the China Virus.

The number of college students who have been hospitalized for the China Virus? 0. That is a big, fat ZERO.

Open the schools, you cowardly, rancid governors.

This concludes your CORONAPANIC UPDATE for today.

According to CBS News, it was the fans who were “controversial.” – The BLMFL opened its season last night, with the Kansas City Chiefs playing the Houston Texans. BLM messaging decorated both endzones and the player uniforms. The entire Texans team refused to come out of their locker room for the playing of the National Anthem, and several Chiefs players knelt in protest of the American flag.

The 17,000 or so socially-distanced fans in the stands roundly booed all of this nonsense through their useless masks, and also booed both teams as they came out to midfield for the opening coin toss.

So, what part of all of this was “controversial” in the eyes of the news-fakers at CBS News?

Here’s their headline:

Kansas City Chiefs fans’ booing at NFL opener proves controversial

The fans were “controversial.” Not the kneeling, not the staying in the lockerroom. Not the messaging celebrating an admittedly-Marxist domestic terrorist organization.

The fans.

That’s all you need to know about the raging, anti-American dumpster fire that is the U.S. news media.

Is the corrupt news media directly colluding with the Biden/Harris campaign? – Well, of course it is. All you need to know, you can see in this 44 second clip from the Fox Report last night:

That’s the aptly-named T.J. Ducklo, ducking low and refusing to answer as Bret Baier repeatedly poses the salient question: Does Joe Biden use a TelePrompter to answer questions during his campaign events? Ducklo can’t answer because the answer is manifestly obvious: Yes. Yes, he does.

If you have watched any of Biden’s recent “press conferences” lately, you can plainly see that the questioners have been chosen carefully in advance, and that Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester knows the questions that are coming. You can often plainly see him, reading the scripted answer from the TelePrompter before him.

So, yes, the media is colluding directly with the Biden/Harris campaign. It’s obvious, and that’s why T.J. Ducklo had to duck low and refuse to answer Baier’s question. If the answer was “no,” there’d have been no problem at all.

Biden was against NAFTA before he was for it. – Quid Pro China Joe pulled a John Kerry during a carefully staged interview with Fake Jake Tapper on CNN yesterday. Biden, who is on record as having voted for NAFTA when it was put into place in 1994, just bald-faced lied to a willing and incurious Tapper, saying that he was “against NAFTA” during an answer:

In what would be breaking news if we had anything resembling an honest, functional news media, Biden also told Tapper at one point that President Trump’s re-negotiation of NAFTA, the USMCA, is better for American workers than NAFTA was. Now, of course, it’s an open question whether Uncle EmptyCranium even knows the difference between NAFTA and USMCA, but he did say it, and real journalists would report it, if we had any.

In the same fake interview, China Joe also told Tapper that he still supports bringing the evil, Nazi-like ChiCom government into the World Trade Organization, and still supports granting the despicably dishonest, aggressively thieving ChiComs Most Favored Nation status, which would grant them tariff advantages in trade with the United States.

In other words, if you elect Joe Biden this November, America will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the ChiCom government. We will be done as a free nation.

The order has apparently gone out. – The riots in Portland and other Democrat-controlled cities across the country have suddenly calmed down the past two nights. Obviously, the polls have gotten so bad that the DNC and Biden/Harris campaign have sent the order out for a pause in the mayhem.

Nevertheless, the great, real journalist Andy Ngo still has some news to report out of Riot City USA, formerly known as Portland:

Yes, this person claims to be a “woman”, and the perpetual outrage crowd demands that you all pretend along with hxr:

Perhaps more absurdly, this … thing… claims to be human:

Seems legit, right?

The question asked below is also quite legit, but Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot are raising their hands to argue the point:

I’ve consistently warned that these people would not stop until they were stopped. Well, the Democrat Party and their funders in the Soros front groups have obviously told them to stop. For now.

But they’ll be back. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

That is all.

Ignored by Corrupt News Media, USMCA Takes Effect

In case you missed this bit of real news amid all of the false hysteria over COVID-19 and the fake story on the “Russia briefing” being spread by our corrupt news media, the U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect today. It’s a really big deal, for one reason no one likes to talk about.

From today forward, Canada and Mexico will no longer be able to ship goods made in China but assembled in their countries into the U.S. free of tariffs, a practice both countries had engaged in to the huge disadvantage of the U.S. for the previous 25 years under NAFTA. As of this moment, the only goods that qualify as “North American” under this trade agreement are those that are completely manufactured within the three countries that are party to the deal.

As such, the USMCA represents a great leap forward in the Trump policy of disentangling our country from China and the evil communist thug regime that rules that country.

Here is a statement issued by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer today:

Washington, DC – The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) enters into force today, replacing the job-killing NAFTA failure and fulfilling a core promise President Trump made to the American people.

The USMCA, which President Trump successfully negotiated in 2018, rebalances trade between the three countries and will lead to significant economic and job growth in the United States.

At President Trump’s direction, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer worked closely with Congress to win overwhelming bipartisan approval of the USMCA.

Ambassador Lighthizer issued the following statement about USMCA’s entry into force:

“Today marks the beginning of a new and better chapter for trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada – just as President Trump promised he would deliver for the American people.

“From day one of his Administration, President Trump has changed the focus of America’s trade policy away from what is best for big, multi-national corporations to instead what is best for America’s workers, farmers and ranchers.  That’s a monumental change.  His success in creating a bipartisan consensus on this new model for trade policy — in spite of the establishment critics who said it couldn’t be done — is truly remarkable.

“The USMCA contains significant improvements and modernized approaches that will deliver more jobs, stronger worker protections, expanded market access, and greater opportunities to trade for companies large and small.  We have worked closely with the governments of Mexico and Canada to ensure that the obligations and responsibilities of all three nations under the agreement have been met, and we will continue to do so to ensure the USMCA is enforced.

“The recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates that now, more than ever, the United States must stop the outsourcing of jobs and increase our manufacturing capacity and investment here at home.  With the USMCA’s entry into force, we take another giant step forward in reaching this goal and advancing President Trump’s vision for pro-worker trade policies.”

[End]

God Bless America.

The Economy is Booming, but Troubling Signs Loom

Guest Piece by Lior Gantz of FutureMoneyTrends

In the past few days, markets have been SPIRALING upwards. In fact, the average person feels GREAT about the economy, about his workplace, about his portfolio and about American dominance.

This happens to coincide with the most overbought stock market conditions in history.

As you know, as long as central banks keep lowering interest rates, there’s no reason to assume that stocks will crash in a major way or go sideways. Investors have ZERO alternatives, compared with the power of American businesses that are growing at a pace of 6%-8% a year, and pay dividends on top of it.

In the short term, though, Wall Street is SELLING and it will continue taking profits, so we might need to wait 3-4 more weeks for sentiment to turn bearish, before getting aggressive again.

Just look at the bullishness of Main Street America:

Fundamentally, America’s economy is truly BOOMING. Many millions, though, still have NO CHANCE of joining the prosperous landscape, but advancements have been noticeable in the past three years.

For example, the bottom 50% of wage-earners have seen a 47% increase in compensation. That’s more than what the top 1% have enjoyed during the Trump era.

Many families have risen back to middle class status and many others no longer need food stamps.

Of the 60,000 factories that were either closed or outsourced in the past 20-30 years, 12,000 new ones are operating on U.S. soil and many more are planned or are getting built.

The USMCA, which replaced NAFTA (that cost America 25% of its manufacturing labor force), is forecasted to create 100K new high-paying jobs.

And, so, the problem is CLEAR AS DAY: Trump’s tax cuts, deregulation, trade negotiation, new legislation and aggressive initiatives are working for the private sector and unleashing the free enterprise system, but the DEFICITS are just STUPIDLY increasing.

You can see this disaster by checking out the debt/GDP ratio:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

In his State of the Union Address, Trump specifically mentioned that Washington will not default on its Social Security promises. What this means is that the government will have to RESORT to other measures to fund its ATOMIC national debt, going forward.

So, while 50 million Americans watched Trump’s speech and his approval ratings hit all-time highs, Wall Street is cashing out for a bit.

The big players did the same thing in February ‘17, January ‘18 and February ‘19. Computer Traded Algorithms and large funds move the markets; if you’re bullish, you are playing with fire.

Another sign that the mom-and-pop investors have gone BERSERK is this:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Many “EXPERTS” have gone bankrupt or have caused other investors to LOSE FORTUNES, by pounding the table that TSLA should be shorted.

Jim Rogers offered up the best advice on shorting manias: markets stay irrational more than you can stay solvent. In other words, he has warned investors that fundamentals don’t matter in times of manias.

This isn’t the only sign of trouble. On Tuesday, I issued a trading warning on gold and it crashed just minutes later.

I still analyze gold’s sentiment as TOO-BULLISH:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The S&P 500 companies are currently reporting earnings and seven out of ten are BEATING expectations. It seems like the economy is better than most believe it is, which is the reason that companies that focus on consumers are BREAKING RECORDS.

We’ve capitalized on this and will continue to cover this topic.

In his SOTU address, Trump also highlighted healthcare and the need to have a healthy country, full of educated citizens.

That’s a huge opportunity – millennials are the most health-driven generation in America’s history!

Trump Denies Pelosi her USMCA Photo-op

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

Better to have the pig farmers than the bleating pig herself. – At Wednesday’s signing ceremony for the huge US/Mexico/Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA), President Donald Trump ensured that representatives from the nation’s hog farmers were in attendance, given the deal’s heavy focus on pork and agricultural goods.

But here’s who he didn’t invite to be there the landmark agreement was signed into law:

After allowing many of her House Democrats vote for the bill along with the Republicans in December, Pelosi made a point of claiming to have forced “major revisions” to the initial draft that had been agreed-to by the Trump Administration. This of course was just another lie, as only a few minor provisions were modified during the negotiations in the House.

The Speaker desperately wanted to be seen as one of the architects of this major deal, because she and her House Majority have achieved literally nothing for the American people over the last year as they focused all of their efforts in mounting their idiotic coup d’etat. Pelosi no doubt coveted the chance to be standing behind the President at this ceremony so that her ghoulish face, complete with rebellious dentures, would make it into the photo-ops. That would have provided Democrat members running in swing districts a visual to show to constituents.

President Trump was not about to give her that satisfaction, given that she needlessly held this important deal up for well over half a year, purely for political leverage. In fact, the President did not invite a single Democrat to the ceremony, which is entirely appropriate given that not a single Democrat helped in making it a reality, a stark contrast to the NAFTA negotiations in the 1990s, which were a completely bipartisan effort.

This, folks, is WINNING, bigly.

This is what the never-ending coup d’etat has wrought. – While the corrupt news media, in its role as the propaganda organ for the Deep State, will excoriate the President for refusing to have any Democrats in attendance, everyone should remember that when he first came into office, Mr. Trump bent over backwards to establish cordial relations with Pelosi, Schumer and other key Democrats. All of those efforts were steadfastly rebuffed.

What President Trump received in return for that outreach was the back of the hand from every Democrat in the D.C. Swamp, and the continuation of the unending efforts to demonize and de-legitimize him that had come at him during the 2016 campaign. Still, the President has persevered in efforts to find ways to work with Pelosi and Schumer, inviting them for frequent meetings at the White House, events where Pelosi consistently tossed fits and stormed out to hurl accusations at Trump to the eager press corps camped outside.

Indeed, the only times Pelosi did not employ that particular tactic have come when President Trump insisted on allowing the press corps to remain present for the full meeting, an unprecedented step he has taken on several occasions specifically to pressure the depraved Speaker to behave.

Unsurprisingly, the President’s efforts towards bipartisanship came to a halt when Pelosi decided to conspire with Adam Schiff to mount the ridiculous impeachment scam. It’s pretty difficult for any president to try to work with people so mendacious and desperate that they would eagerly put the nation through the circus that has now lasted for four long months.

Thus, San Fran Nan didn’t get her photo op yesterday, as the most important trade deal of the 21st Century was signed into law. It was the reward she had richly earned.

That is all.

Did Trump Just Deliver the Greatest Week of Economic WINNING in U.S. History?

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

Right on the heels of the completion of the Phase I Trade Agreement with China, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved the new U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) on Thursday. The approved bill now goes to President Trump’s desk for his signing, which will probably take place next week.

In a terrific interview on Fox Business today, White House Manufacturing Policy Advisor Peter Navarro called it “the greatest two days in U.S. trade policy history.” He isn’t wrong.

Below is a clip of the interview – since it has subtitles, I won’t include a transcript here.

In reaction to these two historic trade days, all stock market indexes closed yet again at all-time record highs. That’s a story that cannot be told often enough, but it was far from the only fantastic economic news that the fake, corrupt news media ignored today.

Here are some more extremely positive highlights, as reported at the People’s Pundit Daily:

  • Business Applications gained 3.4% in the 4th quarter of 2019; Projected business formations rose 4.5% compared to the 3rd quarter.
  • The advance estimates of U.S. retail sales for December was $529.6 billion, an increase of 0.3% (±0.4%) from November, and 5.8% (±0.7%) year-over-year.
  • The Philadelphia Fed’s Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey rose 15 points in January to 17, nearly six times the consensus forecast. Indicators for current activity, new orders, shipments, and employment were all positive and increased from December.
  • Initial jobless claims fell again, once again easily beating “expert” forecasts for the week ending January 11. We’re now at just 204,000 and it’s the monthly jobs report period, meaning the next jobs report could be big.
  • The Housing Market Index (HMI) finds builder confidence started the year very strong, shedding just one point from the month prior, the highest level since 1999.

Again, all of this incredible economic news will be largely ignored by the corrupt national news media as it focuses all of its efforts on supporting the Democrats’ neverending coup d’etat scam. But here’s reality: When President Trump says the U.S. economy is the strongest it has ever been, he isn’t kidding.

God Bless America.

That is all.
