As news that President Trump was pulling out of the Paris climate accord hit at a luncheon for small-business owners in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday, an already happy crowd suddenly turned euphoric. 

 

“It was like a major win at a football game,” said Rick Longenecker, a management consultant who had been among the 50 or so attendees who gathered to trade thoughts amid a rapidly improving local economy. 

 

While multinational corporations such as Disney, Goldman Sachs and IBM have opposed the president’s decision to walk away from the international climate agreement, many small companies around the country were cheering him on, embracing the choice as a tough-minded business move that made good on Mr. Trump’s commitment to put America’s commercial interests first.

Trump's 6 point energy plan. 

 

First, we will begin to revive and expand our nuclear energy sector — which I’m so happy about — which produces clean, renewable and emissions-free energy. 

 

Second, the Department of the Treasury will address barriers to the financing of highly efficient, overseas coal energy plants. 

 

Third, my administration has just approved the construction of a new petroleum pipeline to Mexico, which will further boost American energy exports,  

 

Fourth, just today, a major U.S. company, Sempra Energy, signed an agreement to begin negotiations for the sale of more American natural gas to South Korea

 

Fifth, the United States Department of Energy is announcing today that it will approve two long-term applications to export additional natural gas from the Lake Charles LNG terminal in Louisiana. 

 

Finally, in order to unlock more energy from the 94 percent of offshore land closed to development, under the previous administration, so much of our land was closed to development.

Trump Team travels to Davos.  Main Street USA shocks the Globalists. 

 

Yesterday we saw U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross commanding around 80% of panelist discussion, and factually 100% of all questions and attention from the Davos audience. Every single question was for Wilburine.  Team U.S.A. is the epicenter of the economic universe and Secretary Ross was well prepared for the severity of attention.

 

Today, the same theme continues as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin engages with a similar panel discussion.  

 

The U.S. Main Street economic engine, which was dormant and unattended for decades, is now alive and traveling faster than fiscal policy.  There is an inherent lag that will take a few years before the MAGA system balances again.  In this interim period, exactly as the panelist is stating, wage inflation will be driving up average wealth creation inside the U.S.

 

This is the exact reverse dynamic of the prior 20 years where average middle class wealth was dropping.  This is MAGAnomics baby, and the elites don’t understand it….

How a world-wide money-launderer like "Wiburine", as you call him, became the US Secretary of Commerce is a disgrace only a Putin puppet could have pulled off, and only a Russian bot can explain.

 

So what says you, stocks the bot?

President Trump Tweets Secretary Ross Reevaluating EU Trade Deals….
 

There are Trillions of dollars at stake“.

 

The past 40+ years of U.S. trade deals have resulted in the massive export of U.S. wealth via jobs and manufacturing gains within other nations.  The financial beneficiaries of those prior trade positions were: Wall Street, multinational corporations and multinational banks. The losers of prior trade priorities was the U.S. middle-class.  

 

So ask yourself this very important question:

 

  If prior U.S. trade policies resulted in the export and redistribution of U.S. wealth… What happens when you reverse the process?

Important Economic Confrontation: Neil Cavuto -vs- Larry Kudlow… 

 

Neil Cavuto is the defender of multinational Wall Street interests.  … The Murdoch operations (Fox News and Wall Street Journal among them) are ideological advocates for multinational corporations and historic globalist trade practices, to the detriment of the U.S. middle-class.  Cavuto and Murdoch are aligned with U.S. Chamber of Commerce President, Tom Donohue, in all things related to Big Multinational Trade.

 

Cavuto:

 

…”and we’re really seeing the effect on the folks who have to pay the bills for this sort of thing … we’re already seeing soybean prices coming down; we’re seeing pork related prices coming down … folks are taking it on the chin, what are you telling them?”… etc. 

 

so who are these “folks” losing out? 

 

Cavuto’s ‘consumers’, those he is advocating for, are Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Monsanto, Cargill, Unilever, Nestle’ and ConAgra.  Those are the names of Cavuto’s folks that he sees as “taking it on the chin.”   He is NOT talking about people who shop at supermarkets and grocery stores, ie. the middle-class.

Historians will look back in amazement at how America’s free trade zealots gave away the greatest manufacturing base the world had ever seen

 

Between 1997 and 2017, the EU ran up, at America’s expense, trade surpluses in goods in excess of $2 trillion, while we also picked up the bill for Europe’s defense.

 

Between 1992 and 2016, China was allowed to run $4 trillion in trade surpluses at our expense, converting herself into the world’s first manufacturing power and denuding America of tens of thousands of factories and millions of manufacturing jobs.

Private sector payrolls grew by a stunning 230,000 jobs in September. [They were anticipating 185k]   

 

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. 

 

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. 

 

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
