You’re lying.. as always.

China Works With Biden Administration to Target Former America-First Trump Team With Sanctions
July 23, 2021 | Sundance | 136 Comments

One of the most significant aspects to President Trump’s administration was the trade and economic team he assembled to drive the “America-First” Main Street resurgence we saw on display throughout the four years in office. Readers will note, there was no turnover of personnel in the trade and economic team, because they were the priority, the fulcrum of the Trump Doctrine. One of the key people driving the America-First agenda was Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.



President Trump’s trade and economic team were laser focused on bringing back domestic Main Street economics as the foundation of our economy. That approach put Wall Street multinationals at a policy disadvantage. No-one without an interest in U.S. economic security was allowed a seat at the Trump table.

Policies and practices that supported made in the USA domestic manufacturing and industry were the prism through which all actions taken by the Trump administration were viewed. The massive growth in U.S. jobs and wages was a result. We also had an unprecedented period of deflationary pricing. Things were, well, economically astoundingly good for American workers.

As a direct consequence China, Europe and ASEAN partners who had their foothold in the U.S. economy were weakened. This made the U.S. (Wall Street) multinational corporations -who rely on outsourcing, offshoring and raw material export- very angry. The exfiltration of American wealth was halted by Trump. There were trillions at stake, and many enemies were made because of the America-First agenda.

Those Wall Street enemies of Trump are essentially allies of Joe Biden policy. Biden has not only re-instituted policies to make the U.S. dependent again, ie. a service-driven economy, he has driven up the prices of energy, raw materials and created massive inflation directly as an outcome of policy.

Today, just as the Biden administration continues using the DOJ to target former Trump officials, China announces they will target Wilbur Ross with sanctions.

Make no mistake about this, China is taking this action against the America-First team because they can. They are, in essence, doing Biden’s bidding…..

BEIJING/WASHINGTON, July 23 (Reuters) – China said on Friday that it has imposed counter-sanctions on U.S. individuals including former U.S. commerce secretary Wilbur Ross in response to recent U.S. sanctions on Chinese officials in Hong Kong.

The sanctions are the first imposed by China under its new anti-foreign sanction law, passed in June, and come days before U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman is due to visit China amid deeply strained ties.

China also imposed unspecified “reciprocal counter-sanctions” on current and former representatives of a range of organisations, including the Congressional-Executive Commission on China and the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. ( read more)

So you start your argument with insults...so you are not credible.

But if you want to talk about TARGETING how about the way DJT goes after anyone , even his own VP and inner circle if they don'T Kow Tow to him and what he wants? While the former president may have been right in reigning in unfair trade practices his way of direct confrontation with China back fired on him. CHINA would never back down and LOSE FACE to that type of bullying.....why the hell didn't he listen to his advisers, surely they should have known this. Of course China being communist you can double down that they will never give in to that type of diplomacy....and they did not. They waited it out until POOF!! HE IS GONE!!

Ask Henry Kissinger about back door diplomacy and doing things the right way with China in order to get results. It takes a real diplomat and time....or you get NOTHING!!

Just facts gene. Just facts. Trump is the cleanest president ever

Forbes magazine reported on June 1, "ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams said on The View that 'all signs point to a likely indictment' of former President Donald Trump.

"Noting that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has convened a special grand jury to consider evidence in the criminal investigation into Trump’s business dealings, Abrams said 'those of us in the media always want to try to be careful,' but 'you don’t get a grand jury like this unless they believe they have evidence of a crime...so all the evidence, all the signals are towards a likely indictment of someone, if not more than one person.'"

The story later said, "The View co-host Joy Behar, however, was skeptical. 'Trump has gotten away with impeachment, he’s gotten away with inciting a riot at the Capitol, he got away in the Mueller investigation...what makes you think they’re going to get him this time?'

"Abrams said 'this is different...here we’re not talking about Donald Trump as president with the protections the president has...in this sense, he’s being treated just like everybody else.'"

Behar and Abrams laid out the case for declaring the cleanest president ever because no one else in American history has been investigated so often by so many people and never been charged with any crime.

His accusers, however, are another matter. The media played up Michael Avenatti as a David about to smote the Goliath president. Avenatti appeared on CNN 74 times and on MSNBC 57 times in a 10-week period in 2018, a record for a creepy porn lawyer.

He went on Tucker Carlson's show.

Once.



That chyron is the height of Tucker Carlson's journalistic career.

Brilliant!

By playing Avenatti up as the man who would bring down Trump, the media in essence vouched for him.

Three years later we discovered he tried to extort millions from Nike.

We also discovered that he bilked 5 clients of millions of dollars in settlement money. The victims include Geoffrey Johnson, a paraplegic man.

The Daily Beast reported, "Avenatti had represented Johnson in a lawsuit against Los Angeles County, after a suicide attempt left him paraplegic, and negotiated a $4 million settlement.

"As The Daily Beast reported, police picked Johnson up during a mental-health episode in 2011 and transferred him from the hospital to jail. Despite warnings from his family, jail staff didn’t put Johnson on suicide watch and he tried to hang himself, leading to his permanent disability.

"Johnson, however, never saw this settlement. According to prosecutors, Avenatti made small incremental payments to Johnson totaling $124,000 after moving his funds to accounts linked to Avenatti and his moribund coffee chain.

"Avenatti purchased the now-defunct Seattle-based Tully’s Coffee in 2014 and, within years, the company racked up a nearly $5 million federal tax bill."

The media slept with the creepy porn lawyer and is now shocked to discover he is creepy.

The Washington-based media lives in a swamp. It assumes that everyone is a swamp critter, Naturally, it believed that Donald Trump did something crooked in his life and it was only a matter of time before those real sharp-as-a-whip geniuses at the FBI figured out what crime he had committed.



But they didn't. They could not nail Donald Trump on anything. Even when they ran roughshod over lawyer-client privilege and seized his lawyer's records, the FBI could not pin anything on Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has no secrets from the government.

The feds have everything on him. His tax records. Notes on his private talks with this lawyer. Uncounted hours of tapes from when Obama spied on his campaign. Likely, even more tapes from when the FBI and NSA spied on him in the White House.

And they have nothing.

Not one thing.

Stalin's secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria, is famous for saying (in Russian), "Show me the man and I'll show you the crime." After Stalin died, someone showed Beria's crime and he was executed.

They keep showing and showing Donald Trump but they never show a crime.

Mafia DONS were clean also until RICO. So it is odd that the cleanest president ever is... or was surrounded by the dirtiest entourage ever...so he has nothing to worry about then. Let them investigate...but if they find him dirty you won't believe it anyway...just like when they found no wrong doing with Hillary after NUMEROUS investigations hardcore right don't believe it. Believing only what re-inforces your already made up mind is the trait of someone not able to distinguish truth ...guilt...or innocence by evaluating all the info. Nothing wrong with that...it's just a weakness many have.

The FED says inflation will be transitory...

"Transitory" doesn't always mean temporarily...

The meteor that hit earth and killed off all the dinosaurs was also transitory, but it had a permanent and lasting effect on the planet...
