Barr Takes Aim at Russian Hoax, China Gets Trumped; Trump to Xi: “The Party’s Over!”
U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr has seen enough of the phony FISA warrants and fake Trump Russian collusion $35 million hoax witch-hunt by former special counsel Robert Mueller.
It’s high time to investigate the investigators.
He read Mueller’s 448-page report exonerating President Trump, and now Barr wants to get to the bottom of its origins.
Barr tapped John H. Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut to investigate the genesis of the FBI’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Durham’s selection was first broke by the New York Times, and The Washington Post reported that a person familiar with the decision said the review is designed to investigate if the U.S. government’s “intelligence collection activities” related to the Trump campaign “were lawful and appropriate.”
This is the second step to uncovering the Obama Justice Department’s spy-gate initiative of candidate Donald Trump and his 2015-16 campaign for President.
Barr has already publicly stated “spying” occurred at the campaign, and spy warrants on Trump’s allies may have been obtained by providing FISA court judges with paid opposition research from the DNC and the Clinton campaign, masquerading as authentic U.S. Intelligence.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ full report is due out in late May or early June. The results will shed light on the extent of the FBI’s involvement with the Trump tower wire-tapping caper and how it was justified.
TRUMP TO CHINA: THE PARTY’S OVER, XI.
President Donald Trump defended his decision to level much-warranted tariffs on China, warning them yesterday to come back to the negotiating table.
“I say openly to President Xi & all of my many friends in China that China will be hurt very badly if you don’t make a deal because companies will be forced to leave China for other countries,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Too expensive to buy in China.”
Trump said the proposed deal with China disintegrated after their Communist Party leaders reneged on most of the prior commitments they made.
“You had a great deal, almost completed, & you backed out!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump has maintained that more American companies will abandon buying Chinese goods as a result of the tariffs, and U.S. companies will fill the bill, creating good-paying American jobs.
“Many Tariffed companies will be leaving China for Vietnam and other such countries in Asia,” he wrote. “That’s why China wants to make a deal so badly,” Trump wrote in another tweet.
Trump steadfastly maintained American consumers will not pay higher prices, as has been fear mongered by the Goldman-Sachs and Wall Street cheap goods and slave labor cabal.
“There (their) is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today. This has been proven recently when only 4 points were paid by the U.S., 21 points by China because China subsidizes product to such a large degree.”
For the first time in five decades since President Richard Nixon opened the doors to China relations in 1972, we finally have a President who is willing to stand up to China, and walk away from their game of negotiating deception through stall tactics, empty promises and bait and switch.
President Trump understands that the Chi-coms subsidize the cost of production to dump their products in the U.S. at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles to corner markets and drive American companies out of business.
If you raise tariffs, the Chinese communist government just increases its subsidies to save its U.S. market share. That further diminishes their stagnant economic growth.
THE CHICOM’S MINUS $400 BILLION POP GUN
Now the Chi-coms say they will retaliate. Seriously?
With what? They currently enjoy a nearly $400 billion annual trade surplus with the U.S. – that’s American cash flowing to China on a one-way street.
They have about $400 billion fewer options then President Trump has.
Trump holds all the cards. About 400 billion of them, to be precise.
WALL ST: WHAT? LOWER BONUSES AND NO BAILOUTS?
Meanwhile, the bonfire of the vanities cheap labor bunch and hedge fund boys at the tax-payer bailed out investment firms in lower Manhattan will crank up their propaganda machines at the Wall Street Journal and the FOX Business News to tell you Trump’s China tariffs will cause economic Armageddon.
“Buy toilet paper and water, the end is near, a farmer in Iowa can’t sell a bushel of soybeans to China,” they’ll warn.
We’ve been fooled by this phony “free trade” propaganda for too long.
Trump has proved it false, as those of us in the protectionist camp knew for years.
Hello more good-paying U.S. jobs. Goodbye phony globalist false claims of economic doom and gloom when we stand up for the American worker.
“There will be nobody left in China to do business with. Very bad for China, very good for the USA! But China has taken so the advantage of the U.S. for so many years, that they are way ahead (Our Presidents did not do the job). Therefore, China should not retaliate-will only get worse…The unexpectedly good first quarter 3.2% GDP was greatly helped by Tariffs from China. Some people just don’t get it!” President Trump wrote in two Tweets.
Oh, sure they get it Mr. President. They’ve duped the heartland into believing that “free trade” is good for you, while they know it lowers wages and ships jobs overseas. In return, they get bigger bonuses for pushing paper around. And when the cash boys on Barclay Street fail, they know the same beleaguered taxpayer–who they stole their jobs from–will bail them out, golden parachutes and all.
When things get tight, they trot out their lobbyists who then bring their PAC checkbooks to the capitol.
PRESIDENT TRUMP ADDRESSES REPORTERS AT WH ON CHINA
President Trump will no longer allow China to take advantage of the United States.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “China has been taking advantage of the United States for many, many years. I’m not just talking about during the Obama administration. You can go back long before that. And it’s been taking out $400, $500, $600 billion a year out of the United States and we can’t let that happen.”
Our powerful economy has put the United States in a very strong negotiating position with China.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “We’re in a very strong position. Our economy’s been very powerful. Theirs has not been. We’ve gone up a lot since our great election in 2016, and if you look at the numbers, they’ve gone down quite a bit. We’re dealing with them.”
China is hurting economically and will need to make a deal to stop companies from leaving their country.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “We’re in a great position right now, no matter what we do. Yeah, I think China wants to have it, because companies are already announcing that they’re leaving China, because they can’t do that – they can’t compete if they’re in China with the tax.”
Some of the money coming in from tariffs will be redirected to help American farmers.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Out of the billions of dollars that we’re taking in, a small portion of that will be going to our farmers, because China will be retaliating, probably, to a certain extent against our farmers.”
President Trump has a very good relationship with China and will continue trade discussions during the upcoming G-20 Summit.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “We have a very good relationship. Maybe something will happen. We’re going to be meeting, as you know, at the G-20 in Japan and that’ll be, I think, probably a very fruitful meeting.”
