Brandon Beach leveled his most direct attack yet against former U.S. Rep. Karen Handel in an interview with a Washington radio show, mocking his 6th District rival’s defeats before he agreed with a host who called her a “Never Trumper.”
The state senator on Tuesday told John Fredericks, a former Georgia broadcaster who has a D.C.-based show, that Handel has “never been re-elected to an office in her career” and that if she wins the GOP nod she’ll lose again to Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath.
Beach also said Handel struggled to defeat Jon Ossoff in 2017 and lost to McBath last year because she didn’t cozy up enough to President Donald Trump, who only narrowly carried the district in the 2016 vote.

The deputy director of the FBI already has criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.”
In a blockbuster interview on The John Fredericks Show, former Trump for President campaign manager and best selling author Corey Lewandowski predicted that several former U.S. Justice Department officials will be doing prison time when the “investigation of the investigators” in the Russian collusion hoax is complete.
“When we get that [final reports] we’re going to see that these people broke the law, went after a candidate for office because they didn’t like his politics, and those people are going to be held accountable, and I sure hope and I think it’s going to be the case that they go to jail, for spying on Americans on domestic soil,” Lewandowski said.
“I believe the recommendations [of John Durham] will completely align with Inspector General Horowitz when they say that these people broke the law, spied on Americans, did so for their own political benefit, lied on FISA applications, and now they are getting very scared. This is investigating the investigators because we know the American people know these people broke the law, and Attorney General Barr is going to bring them to justice,” Lewandowski predicted.
Below are key interview excerpts:
John: Corey, Attorney General William Barr named John H. Durham, the U.S. attorney from the District of Connecticut, to investigate the investigators in the Russian collusion witch-hunt. What do make of it?
Corey: John, this is so important for the American people to get somebody to look at what the genesis of the Russia investigation hoax was all about. And so now that Attorney General Barr has named somebody to look into this we’re going to find out something that I believe Attorney General Barr already knows, and I believe Inspector General Horowitz already knows, was that this whole Russia collusion investigation was a complete hoax.
It was a fake charge that was designed just to go after Donald Trump, and because I believe that the attorney general doesn’t want the scrutiny that is going to come with this, he has now appointed a neutral unbiased individual who is going to have the opportunity to look at this from the outside … As they say in dragnet, just the facts ma’am.
And when we get that we’re going to see that these people broke the law, went after a candidate for office because they didn’t like their politics, and those people are going to be held accountable, and I sure hope and I think it’s going to be the case that they go to jail, for spying on Americans on domestic soil.
I believe the recommendations [of John Durham] will completely align with Inspector General Horowitz when they say that these people broke the law, spied on Americans, did so for their own political benefit, lied on FISA applications, and now they are getting very scared. This is investigating the investigators because we know the American people know these people broke the law, and Attorney General Barr is going to bring them to justice.
Look, it’s very simple, and it’s the same process that you or I would go through if we weren’t criminals like these people are, which is the investigation has been launched. They are looking for clear evidence of violations of the law. They will find those. And just because you are a government employee, and just because you are the deputy director of the FBI or the general counsel of the FBI does not make you immune from prosecution, and that means that you will be accountable, just like everyone else will be accountable.And that means that these individuals are going to jail.
PERP WALKS COMING
Corey: John, I know it’s a bold statement. I understand your readers and your listeners are saying, hey, Corey Lewandowski is off his rocker today.
But let me tell you this: the deputy director of the FBI already has criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.
The Department of Justice wanted to wait until the Mueller report was finalized. That’s now done. And I believe that the number two person who served as our deputy director of the FBI is going to go to jail for a long time.
And I’m not talking a day or two, I’m talking years for the crimes that he committed, for the information that he leaked, for the stories that he started, for the FBI warrants that he signed off on, for the FISA abuses that he participated in.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER GO TO JAIL TOGETHER
Andy McCabe and others; Peter Strzok, Jim Baker, Bruce Ohr, they are all going to jail and it will be a vindication for the Trump campaign, for the President, for myself and my friends who were spied upon, to say that nobody is above the law and its high time that these people are held accountable.
John: Well not only that, the investigation, and the being spied upon, but then like you said a couple of weeks ago Corey the fact that you and many of your colleagues were drug into hearings with subpoenas that went on for days and hours. I had Dave Bossie on the other day and he said it cost Corey Lewandowski’s family $500,000.
Corey: I participated in the election because I wanted to, but the financial constraints that this government has placed on me and my family, which…would have paid for my children to go to college–is gone because of what they’ve done to me.
And you know I’m not Donald Trump, I’m not worth billions of dollars a month. I’m a working-class blue-collar guy who had the opportunity to be on an amazing journey because I believed, and still do, that Donald Trump is the best President and best candidate for the future of our country.
But they abuse their power in the government. They went after me. They went after so many other people.
And John, you know I am not a fan of Paul Manafort, I am not a fan of Roger Stone, but those guys had the full weight of the federal government on them. Paul went into solitary confinement. Roger Stone had a no knock warrant executed against him…I just think it’s wrong and we deserve better as the American people.
If you told me this was taking place in some Mickey Mouse country, then I would say hey maybe that’s the case, but not here in this country. That’s what’s happened and now it’s time…I’m a Star Wars fan and the second movie the Star Wars trilogy was The Empire Strikes Back. I’m calling this the President strikes back.
Corey: Adam Schiff is still trying to threaten people with $25,000 a day in fines if they don’t follow the subpoenas, and North Carolina Senator Burr brought back Donald Trump,Jr. to listen to more testimony that he he’s already provided on multiple occasions.
Its time to put this behind us. Stop going after these innocent people, and instead hold people who broke the law for their own edification because they didn’t like Donald Trump, because they wanted to see Hillary Clinton to win, accountable. The American people deserve that.
THE COMEY CLOWN SHOW
John: Rod Rosenstein…just came out distancing himself from James Comey…
Corey: You know, it was very interesting John, Rod’s speech [Monday] highlighted that he believes, in my opinion, that Jim Comey broke the law and that above all else he wants to hold people accountable. And look I’m not a fan of Rod Rosenstein.
I don’t think he handled the Mueller investigation well, I think as Jeff Sessions number two at the Department of Justice there were a number of things, and I’m not an attorney, that I would have done differently. I believe that the new number two is going to be sworn in as early as tomorrow, which is long overdue. But the one thing that we heard from Rod Rosenstein when he gave that the commencement speech was the final ultimatum. That Jim Comey is not a truthful person, that he is dishonest.
And don’t forget Jim Comey’s immediate supervisor: he directly reported to Rod Rosenstein, and Rosenstein oversaw this investigation.
He is a man who Jim had to talk to on a regular basis. And basically, what Rod said–and I said this many times–Jim Comey has a massive messiah complex. He believes he is the final arbiter when it comes to information and decisions, and Rod Rosenstein went out to chastise this individual and this is a person who he worked with if not on an hourly basis, clearly on a daily basis and has known for a long, long time.
And don’t forget your listeners may or may not remember this, Jim Comey previously served as a deputy attorney general, the number two person at the Department of Justice which is the very position that Rod Rosenstein held in the Trump administration.
So, he knew Jim Comey. Jim Comey knew Rod Rosenstein in the position that he held the responsibility that entailed.
And Rod Rosenstein went out to light this clown up because that’s what Jim Comey is.
He’s a clown.
He was on CNN just last week talking about things to sell his book one more time.
He has no compunction whatsoever about making stories up and trying to justify in his own mind, even though we all know, your listeners know, I know, you know, Jim Comey broke the law time and time again for his own benefit, and went after Donald Trump because he didn’t like his politics.
Jim Comey has had a political agenda from day one and the detriment that he has caused to the FBI will be felt for literally a generation.
People now know Comey: for crimes that they [FBI] were spying on the President of the United States. That is what transpired. Don’t let anybody say otherwise.
Yes, they spied on me.
Yes, they spied on our campaign.
They spied on the President of the United States because they didn’t want to see him be elected. They didn’t want to see him serve this country. And if that is not a crime, then I have no idea what is anymore.
GRAHAM GOING TO ROBERTS
Corey: I met with Lindsey Graham, Senator from South Carolina, last week to talk about this and he was going to–because he was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, one of the most powerful positions in all of Washington D.C. He told me very candidly he was going to meet with [Justice] John Roberts, who is the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, to say we can never allow this to happen again.
Whether it requires legislation, whether requires administrative changes. We don’t know if Rod Rosenstein knew the truth. What we do know is that the final FISA warrant, the final FISA application was signed after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, we said we want to continue to listen to conversations and spy on domestic soil on people who are at the highest levels of the government.
If that is not illegal, if that is not a crime, then nothing is.
That’s big brother at its worst, and we, the American people deserve better, and those people deserve to be in jail.
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.”
Former Senior White House strategic advisor to President Trump Steve Bannon, who also served as Trump’s campaign chairman in 2016, heralded Trump’s latest moves on China as “transformational.”
In a wide-ranging interview with me on May 6, Bannon, now chairman of Citizens for the Republic, a 501(c)(4) pulled no punches, as he eviscerated China, Wall Street, D.C. elites and Joe Biden.
“President Trump is the President of the United States because working-class people and middle-class people were tired of this kind of managed decline of the American elites,” Bannon said.
“The Hillary Clintons, Wall Street corporatists, what I call party elites. They managed the purposeful decline of the United States, which was at its highest level in the upper Midwest in our manufacturing belt,” Bannon explained.
“The great manufacturing industrial base that drove America to become a world power was in decay. The decline of that is exactly why the United States was starting to sink in the world.
Working class people rejected it. Donald Trump offered a return to American greatness, and principally about protecting American workers, and also returning manufacturing jobs to the United States. That’s why today [Monday] is one of the most important days of Trump’s presidency.”
Bannon: Trump’s trade policies and bringing U.S. manufacturing jobs roaring back is the beating heart of the competition of the 21st century. [Trump] acutely recognizes the economic war that China has been running against the United States for the last 25 years.
This is not the Chinese people. The Chinese people are as decent and hard-working as any people on Earth.
This is this radical cadre of the Chinese communist party. President Xi, Wang Qishan, and others, these radicals that are determined to basically destroy the United States as a major industrial power, and this war have been going on for a quarter of a century.
It’s been supported by the corporatists in this country, and throughout the world, and also Wall Street. The big investment banks, the big commercial banks, the big hedge funds, they all collude with the Chinese communist party.
BANNON BLASTS BIDEN
Bannon: And Joe Biden, to say the other day, in the middle of this intense negotiation, will talk about what President Trump’s done in the last 48 hours, which is quite historic. In the middle of this negotiation, Joe Biden says last week, “China’s not a competitor to us.”
This virtually disqualifies him to be a serious candidate for President of the United States. I would hope that the populists in the Democratic Party, the people that follow Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders would finally engage him and take him to the task.
He [Biden] is nothing more than a representative of the Obama/Clinton globalist clique.
IS BIDEN COMPROMISED ON CHINA?
Bannon: Joe Biden has tremendous conflicts of interest when it comes to China.
We did Government Accountability, which is an organization I chaired and oversaw for years, while I was also at Breitbart with Peter Schweizer.
We did Clinton Cash. It took us years to do that research that came and got Clinton Cash.
Clinton Cash was one of the instruments we bludgeoned Hillary Clinton with about her corruption, right? And her incompetence. But particularly her corruption with the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative. After that book came out right before its publication, we shifted to a new topic, and that was China’s influence peddling among America’s political elite, and one of the people we focused on Joe Biden, and the reason was that Joe Biden of 2013 led an official delegation over to China on a whole series of issues with the Chinese, and he took his son Hunter with him.
Shortly thereafter, Hunter and his partner, who is the son of Theresa Heinz, John Kerry’s stepson, announced that they formed a private equity firm with a $1.5 billion investment by the Bank of China.
Now the Bank of China directly reports to the Chinese Community Party and to the President of China unlike any other central bank in the G20.
It reports directly to the political apparatus. It’s not like the Federal Reserve, it’s not like the Bank of England, it’s not like the Bank of Tokyo, this reports directly to the communist political apparatus.
So essentially, the senior members of the Chinese Communist Party funded Biden’s son, who by the way has no background in finance, he’s completely incompetent and has absolutely zero chance of raising that type of money in either Wall Street or London.
They basically infused him with an initial $1 billion to aid him, and then added another $500 million for a total investment of $1.5 billion and Peter Schweizer details this quite substantially in this book Secret Empires, and Biden has got to come clean. Joe Biden has to come clean with how much money his family has made off the Chinese Communist Party.
What’s his involvement? And I think they’re looking at this facial technology of his company and this artificial intelligence, which enslaves the Chinese people. The Chinese people enslaved by this firewall, they’re enslaved by this technology.
I believe when you look at the investments that Hunter Biden’s company is actually invested in Chinese technology companies.
And so Joe Biden can squirm and he can try to get away from this, but he’s got to have to be held accountable and he will be held accountable, and I would hope that Bernie Sanders — particularly Bernie Sanders who had a chance to do this to Hillary Clinton — and failed miserably in the primary of 2016. Given another shot, Sanders should hold a globalist like Joe Biden accountable to this.
But for Biden to sit there in Iowa and say, “Hey, they’re [China] not a competitor to us,” it shows you how I think how clueless Biden is, and maybe it’s something more serious, and maybe that his interests are aligned with China and the members of the CCP because of his financial interest.
John: Steve, the question becomes: is Joe Biden clueless or compromised when it comes to China?
Bannon: Hunter Biden went to Pittsburgh, and Joe Biden went to Iowa, and Joe Biden is sitting there trying to tell Trump voters, “I’m really the real deal. Donald Trump is a phony.”
Joe Biden was there for all eight years in the Obama administration, and all they did was surrender. All they did was surrender every day to China. They allowed the manufacturing jobs to be shipped overseas, Joe Biden was there for every day, but Joe Biden didn’t do anything. When China built these islands in the South China Sea, which is one of the most provocative things that have happened in global affairs in the last 15 to 20 years — these are essentially aircraft carriers that the Chinese use to restrict trade and navigation in the South China Sea — which I take over $5 trillion dollars of world trade that’s still there today, and is absolutely essential for our allies like South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan to have free navigation of the South China Sea to make sure that they’re free.
Joe Biden was there with Obama when they looked the other way.
I believe that the building of those islands and the cratering of America showed Asia that that was like Munich. That was our Munich of the 21st Century. Biden was there for that. Biden was there, which he came to the Rose Garden 2014 and signed a deal with Obama in front of the American people and said, “We’re not going to do any more cyber theft, no more cyber intrusions.”
And all the Chinese did after that was double down or tripled it.
TRUMP TO CHINA: NO DEAL, CHEATER
BANNON: You can see with what President Trump has had to go through within the last 48 hours, and that was basically to tell the Chinese, “You’re not going to renegotiate us. This deal is going to be a real deal, and we’re going to go public with exactly with what you’ve been doing, and you’re going to agree to not do it again, and we’re going to have a legal contract that shows you’re not going to do it again, or we’re going to have tariffs as a hammer to make sure you don’t do it again, and we’re not only going to let the world know that in this deal, the Chinese people are going to know that.”
One of the things that the Chinese Communist Party is trying to stop is having full promulgation of this deal out into the local and regional authorities in China, and we’re trying to do that to make sure what Trump is doing to have some teeth in this deal, so just not happy talk.
Biden is just one of these glad-handers that’s nothing but happy talk. He hasn’t done anything for working-class people, and if he’s done it, he’s got a point to his time in the Obama administration on what he did on trade.
It was President Trump to put the tariffs in to start bringing steel jobs back, aluminum jobs back, it’s President Trump that focused on forced technology transfers and technology theft where the Chinese are ripping off American companies. That’s Donald Trump.
Joe Biden was there for eight years, did absolutely nothing except take $1.5 billion dollars from the Chinese Communist Party, and that’s how some of them make a living.
We got to find out how. Look, I would hate to say that Biden is compromised. He’s certainly clueless and incompetent, but we got to drill down and get the facts of what his involvement, his family’s involvement financially is with the Chinese Communist Party, and what companies they finance in China.
WALL ST. COMPLICIT IN U.S. MANAGED DECLINE
John: Trump said, “Hey, I’m going to go back to the 25 percent tariffs on another $300 billion dollars of Chinese goods because I just want to get progress.” What did you think of that?
Bannon: Listen, let’s go back to the economic debt, and I think where these two parties stand. If you look at the 3.2 percent growth that was announced last Friday a week ago, the 1 percent that was over the 2.2 that nobody guessed came from, us decreasing the trade deficit with China, and also part of the great jobs number. What this is showing is we’re starting to bring jobs back, people are starting to turn those to Chinese goods. This is the heart of the Trump economic program. Trump’s strategy is working, and Wall Street hates it. Wall Street hates it because it’s cutting them off. Remember, Wall Street is vested in relations with the Chinese…for the CCP.
Wall Street has always been against Trump in this matter, and this is why President Trump, I think, feels now as I see it. That his economic program is working, and he’s not about to break to the Chinese. He’s going to have a real deal. The key line in those two tweets is we’re not going to allow renegotiating.
Donald Trump is not going to be re-traded, and I think the key to the re-trades is central of these huge issues about subsidies estate on the industries, subsidies through advanced manufacturing that they’re trying to do, forced technology transfers, everything that talks about the advanced manufacturing that will drive the American economically and the world economically in the 21st century.
Donald Trump is fighting for you and your kids right now…and that’s why this is the most important thing we’re working on, and it’s the most important thing that the Trump administration has been working on.
It’s why this Russia hoax is such a joke. This is the heart of what the great economic war of the 21st century is, and this is what Trump is focused on every day. And he also said, “We’re going to have a deal that has teeth, and you’re going to abide by it.” And what the Chinese are trying to do is their old trick, not to get the word out, not to let people know what these deals really are.
Trump is trying to force the Chinese Communist Party to make sure this is promulgated legislatively in China down the local and regional levels, so the Chinese people can understand what the regime and the CCP in Beijing have been trying to do because the Chinese people essentially are our allies in this.
Remember, we have a world right now that’s a house divided. Half slave and half free.
It’s the Chinese people that have been enslaved by this radical cadre of the CCP. That’s what President Trump is trying to break is their continual lies and misrepresentations to their own people, and also to businesses, and the financial community, and people in the United States.
This is the heart of the return of American greatness, this is what Wall Street and the corporatists fought tooth and nail, you see from the numbers it’s working, and I think that tweet was monumental.
I think it’s one of the most powerful things he’s done in his Presidency, and he’s saying, “Hey, if we don’t have a deal that’s a deal on my terms, we’re going to hit you with across the board dramatic increases in tariffs.”
Now the Chinese and particularly the hawks in China are sitting and going, “Hey, our systems are working fine for us right now. Why do we need the Americans? Let’s call their bluff. Let’s call Trump’s bluff.”
So this thing is going to get very nasty and very contentious over the next couple of weeks.
John: If the Chinese call Trump’s potential bluff, what happens Steve?
Bannon: The Chinese are going to see reality. Their economy right now is down from historic highs … It’s publicly reported. They put phony numbers that say 6.9 percent growth. I think most people think if you talk to sophisticated people that follow this its anywhere from 1.9 to 3.5 percent growth. If Trump increases these tariffs that could cut that growth in half. To a large extent, they are struggling. With people around at the hardcore level of the CCP around Xi, look at this One Belt, One Road conference they had last week with 70 nations showed up to basically take money from the Chinese in this One Belt, One Road, which is this project they try to unite the Eurasian landmass.
The Chinese, by printing a lot of RNB, I feel that they’ve got a system right now that can at least work in the short term, and so they don’t want to change, and they particularly can’t change when it comes to forced technology transfers. They do not have the innovation right now of Silicon Valley, so they have to basically steal or force that innovation from Japan and the United States and Western Europe into their system.
If Trump’s program stops that, Trump’s program also stops the subsidies these state-owned industries.
China is exporting deflation and overcapacity. That’s why in Japan, the United States and Europe, you have a very tough time raising prices. You have a very tough time getting wages increased, and the reason is that China has so much overcapacity, and continues to pound state money into that that gives them a very unfair comparative advantage.
That’s also what Trump is trying to stop in this deal. I mean this deal is highly negotiated. Bob Lighthizer, our Ambassador Head of US Trade Representatives, one of the best deal lawyers around, he’s really Trump’s wingman on this, and he’s done a terrific job, but now you’re down to the nitty-gritty, and the Chinese, as they always do, are trying to re-trade, and you finally have a President of the United States unlike Biden, and unlike Obama, and unlike Bush.
Clinton, Bush, and the Obama factions have all basically kowtowed to China. Donald Trump is the first guy to stand up, and he stood up for a reason. He realizes this is why he’s President of the United States– the American people rejected this managed decline by the American elites, and this is why Trump is President. He understands this is central for his Presidency, and also for the good of the nation.
Trump hung NAFTA around Hillary Clinton’s neck. Biden voted for NAFTA and TPP. We’ll soon see if the Democrats have learned anything.
In a crowded field of Democratic presidential hopefuls, former Vice President Joe Biden’s unique selling point is he ostensibly connects with white, working-class voters.
These are the once-reliably Democrat voters who helped elect Donald J. Trump president in 2016.
To understand why Democrats now struggle to reach white, working-class Americans who previously formed its base, you must understand how radicals, the Clinton family, the Democrat Party, and Wall Street coalesced. It has become a very unholy alliance.
The story begins in the 1960s with the rise of the New Left, the student activists who wore Che Guevara t-shirts, waved Viet Cong flags, took over campus buildings and protested the Vietnam War.
Unlike the traditional left, the New Left regarded white, blue collar men as Archie Bunker racists, and the labor unions that represented them as bastions of white privilege, the “aristocracy of labor” in Marxist parlance.
The mutual antipathy was exemplified in the Hard Hat Riot when members of the building trades unions pummelled long-haired anti-war protestors in the streets of New York.
New Left student radicals essentially took over the Democratic Party after the bloody melee at the 1968 Democratic convention and Richard Nixon’s victory.
The upper-middle class radicals’ first order of business at the DNC was to purge the union guys, even though they had been the muscle of Democratic power since the days of Franklin Roosevelt.
The director of the AFL-CIO’s political arm seeing what was coming said, “We aren’t going to let these Harvard-Berkeley Camelots take over our party.” They did.
New party rules set designated seats for women, minorities, young people – but not blue collar men. The party’s agenda moved toward the campus issues of abortion-on-demand, feminism, environmentalism, affirmative action and identity politics – and away from working people’s concerns of decent pay and decent jobs.
The Democratic Party’s new bosses were children of America’s privileged professional class. They saw a future where no one toiled in factories, where the entire country would be like them – college educated “symbolic analysts.”
This is the “post-industrial new economy” Bill Clinton saw on the other side of “the bridge to the 21st Century” that he set the pilings for signing NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and bringing China into the World Trade Organization (WTO).
These so-called “free trade” deals were actually corporatist investment schemes that moved America’s manufacturing assets and jobs to Mexico and China.
Bill Clinton pushed these deals despite fierce opposition from labor unions.
But Clinton jilted the labor movement so he could move in with a more attractive partner he found in another part of town: Wall Street.
Wall Street wanted cheap labor, the Clintons wanted Wall Street money, for themselves and their party. It was a marriage made in heaven, or by the devil. For thirty pieces of silver, they sold out working Americans.
And the working classes never forgot NAFTA.
In 2016 Donald J. Trump crushed the blue wall around the Great Lakes and sailed to an historic victory by promising to scrap NAFTA and the other rotten trade deals that have destroyed the lives and livelihoods of millions of Americans.
President Trump made good on his promise. He withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, TPP, and he negotiated the US Mexico Canada Agreement, USMCA, to replace NAFTA.
USMCA is the template for trade deals that promote the economic interests of Americans and our nation rather than global corporations.
It requires more local content for automobiles to qualify for tariff free treatment. It protects American wages by requiring at least $16 an hour for 45 per cent of the labor content of autos.
It protects independent unions in Mexico. And it protects Teamsters, American truckers and drivers by repealing the odious provision in NAFTA that allowed Mexican trucks piloted by meth-fuelled drivers and held together with baling wire and the entrails of murdered cartel members to operate on our roads.
Some Democrats are now opposing this better deal for Americans because – get this – they say it doesn’t do enough for Mexican workers.
Donald J. Trump hung NAFTA and TPP around Hillary Clinton’s neck in 2016, and it sunk her in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.
If Democrats kill USMCA, they will resurrect the ghost of Bill Clinton and it will haunt them just as it did in 2016.
It won’t matter even if the nominee’s name is Joe Biden. After all, Joe voted for NAFTA and supported TPP.
We will soon see if the Democrats have learned anything.
Forget the truth. It’s the narrative, stupid.
The legacy media debacle, ignited by the empty Robert Mueller report, is the beginning of the end for the fake news bunch.
Desperate for a morsel of hope in keeping their clickbait fresh, and to avoid any direct comeuppance for the lies they told on national television, the fake-newsers are now peddling a bizarre Attorney General Robert Barr coverup scheme.
The outcome, as reported by Barr in a summary letter to Congress, was a shock to the partisan media hacks who spent the past two years publishing unsubstantiated reports, trafficking in rumors, promoting wild Russian asset conspiracy theories, propagating pure speculation masquerading as analysis and pushing claims from anonymous sources in order to construct a fictional narrative designed to overturn the result of the 2016 election. Or excuse it.
The Trump-Russian collusion cable television hoaxers pushed a story with no direct evidence based on a fake dossier for two years. The gamble was an easy way to explain away Trump’s victory.
While they ramped up a narrative based on wild conspiracy theories, they drove fresh advertising dollars by increasing web-clicks and viewers who wanted desperately to believe them.
Many of the complicit elected officials are now red-faced and in media seclusion. Ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) is one of the biggest culprits, and he’s nowhere to be found these days.
Warner went on the Sunday show circuit week after week and assured us he had evidence of collusion, and that more was coming soon. When he broke with Intel Chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who said he had seen nothing and bailed, Warner claimed he had alternative facts.
None came. For those of us who took Warner seriously, where’s the beef—or the apology?
The legacy media propagandizers, desperate for their phony Trump-collusion narrative to be pushed out at all costs, are now eating their own.
For the last two years, the legacy media promulgated a blatant lie about President Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia — but in order to keep the charade going, they had to make sure that their audiences weren’t exposed to conflicting viewpoints.
Remarkably, this big lie is not the end of the story. It’s the beginning.
Multiple journalists and media commentators have alleged that not only did major media outlets selectively emphasize coverage that fit their collusion narrative, they actively suppressed skeptical and dissenting voices—from the left!
The left-leaning journalist Glenn Greenwald, for instance, recently claimed that he and several other commentators were banned by MSNBC because they questioned the network’s collusion coverage.
“There was a whole slew, not just me, of left-wing journalists with very high journalistic credentials, far more than anyone on that network, like Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Scahill and many others … who were banned from the network because they wanted their audience not to know that anybody was questioning or expressing skepticism about the lies and the scam they were selling because it was so profitable,” Greenwald said.
According to Greenwald, MSNBC’s obsession with the Russian hoax was motivated by the network’s long-standing failure to attract viewers — a problem it solved by airing sensationalist reports about the collusion scandal.
“The whole network was about to collapse,” he maintained. “This whole scam saved them. Not only did they constantly feed people for three straight years total disinformation, they did it on purpose.”
Another well-known liberal, the prominent legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, also claimed that he was banned from appearing on CNN — a network that often claims to be nonpartisan and objective.
“I have been right from day one, and almost all the other pundits and professors have just been dead wrong,” he said in a recent interview. “CNN banned me from their air because I was being too fair. I was trying to assess what the essential issue was, and I wasn’t being partisan. They didn’t want that.”
Banning credible experts from sharing views that do not fit a preordained, partisan script is one of the most insidious tactics of the biased media — unlike factual errors, which are at least subject to public scrutiny, media booking decisions are made behind the scenes, making it nearly impossible to know how widespread this sort of covert censorship really was.
Now that Robert Mueller has debunked the collusion hoax and proved that Greenwald and Dershowitz were right all along, it’s clear that blacklisting insightful criticism of the witch hunt was the only way they could keep their audiences from figuring out the truth.
