China brings a paper clip to a gun fight.

Ignore the Corporate Media Propaganda

 

Corporate America first extolled the virtues of offshoring production to cheap countries, and now fires up the mainstream media which launched into incessant, deafening, repetitive, and manipulative coverage of how these tariffs would hurt US jobs more than anything. 

 

Not doing anything would allow the continuation of a trade war that has been waged against US workers for over two decades, largely by Corporate America’s own ambitions to offshore production, profits, and cash.

Trump was in an aggressive mood toward the EU during his remarks at the VFW convention in Missouri on Tuesday:

 

“I said, "You have to change." They didn't want to change. I said, "Okay. Good. We're going to tariff your cars." They send millions of cars -- Mercedes, all of them, BMW. So many cars.

 

I said, "We're going to have to tariff your cars." They said, "When can we show up? When can we be there?" (Laughter.) "Would tomorrow be okay?"”

The EU-USA trade deal. What comes next?

 

EU: They’d better close the Industrial Deal fast, before Trump loses patience.

• Delays or backpedaling will trigger the Auto Tariffs.
• Further Tariffs will NOT be removed until the EU Deal is signed and implemented.
• Their Deal will include a NATO commitment to use profits for 3-4% funding NOW.
• Their Deal will include an EU-wide commitment to maximum sanctions on Iran.
• The Industrial Deal will be followed by Autos and Technology.
• These Deals will cement a USA-EU Trading Block to end Chinese Trade Cheating.
• They will ultimately end Chinese Theft of Intellectual Property with Reparations.

 

 BRITAIN: Brexit better race for a deal that will now have to BEAT the EU Deal.

• The UK must surrender ALL evidence of complicity in the “Russian Collusion” cabal.
• The UK must extradite the UK co-conspirators for prosecution or plea deals.
• What ELSE do they have to offer?

Phase II begins in the economic confrontation with China.  The hurt will increase until their behavior changes.

 

Phase II is direct, deliberate and fully confrontational trade engagement with extreme prejudice to financially hurt the Chinese economy and present the communist regime with examples of what will lie ahead if they do not concede to U.S. terms.

The first objective in Phase II is to convince the Chinese the war is real 

 

President Trump will not back down from his position; the U.S. holds all of the leverage and the geopolitical economics must be addressed. President Donald Trump and his team are entirely prepared for this.

 

Donald Trump has been discussing this for more than three decades. We are going into economic combat with China!

China Has Already Lost This War... 

 

What was once the world's fastest growing economy, destined to overtake the United States at any moment, is now poised, not simply to cool off, but to begin to shrink in size.  

 

China, which lives or dies based on exports cannot lose access to the American market and even begin to replace those sales elsewhere. There are on the other hand an almost endless number of other locations other than China, including the United States, to which manufacturers can move their factories and shift production. China was already seeing the beginnings of this shift before the trade war began. The confrontation with the United States simply intensified the trend.

 

China will ultimately cave and sign a deal. Its economy will not collapse. It will, however, never again see growth on the scale it has seen for the last thirty years. Within a year or two, in fact, we are likely to see a red-hot American economy surge past China in its rate of growth. China, which once thought fit to challenge the United States for global supremacy will remain a second-tier power.
