Benedict Arnold is claiming that he is bringing jobs back to the United States, oh really?

What kind of quality jobs are we talking about here? Low wage, part time, and temp jobs essentially maintaining the status quo of a disposable workforce? This is different from Obama how exactly?

Oh, he brought Foxconn jobs to the United States from communist China! You mean the same Foxconn corporation that had to put up suicide nets from its roof tops because its low wage Chinese laborers were trying to commit suicide at work on a daily basis? That same Chinese corporation?!

Benedict Arnold is always trying to blow smoke up the ass of the United States population constantly how he is this great job creator, what a fucking joke!

Where are national infrastructure projects and public works initiatives at? Still waiting...

Where is the rebuilding of the United States manufacturing base nationally and domestically at? Still waiting!

While all this is happening Benedict Arnold kisses the ass of GoldmanSachs and does nothing to hinder the Federal Reserve financial usurers.

He will absolutely not build a wall on the Mexican American border. If he does anything it will be some kind of bullshit fence that can be climbed over or dug under by Mexican cartel members. He'll eventually cave into unlimited foreign immigration one way or another.

He will not do anything meaningful regarding national infrastructure projects or bringing back manufacturing domestically. The plan by Wallstreet and the deep state is to make Americans poorer overtime reducing them to Chinese style wages.

If he does any kind of healthcare reform you can be rest assured that only private insurance companies will benefit. Reducing costs for medical care in the United States will never happen as it stands now.

He won't do anything substantial to make higher education more accessible to people or lower its costs.

Tax reform? Don't make me fucking laugh, again the plan is to make Americans poorer. He'll probably add more corporate tax loopholes for the very wealthy.

Things Donald Trump will do that we all get to look forward to:

He'll probably invade Ukraine, Syria, North Korea, or Iran. Take your pick of any of these nations listed. We can definitely expect him to kiss the ass of Israel more along with AIPAC, he's good at that.

We can probably also expect him to pick a fight with Russia or China, maybe both at the same time.

If you're a freedom loving American and desire genuine independence the best you can hope for is the complete total collapse of this nation, that's all there is to look forward to anymore. This country cannot be reformed by conventional means, voting is useless, and when reform becomes impossible revolution only becomes inevitable.

But no, we have officially pulled out of the Paris accords. And that is… Don’t let anybody tell you that’s not a big deal. The way they’re trying to handle that is, “Well, you know, the Paris accords weren’t really that big a deal. It was just a framework! It was just a document where nations of the world were committing their preferences.” Yeah, that’s what they say when it falls apart on ’em. That’s what they say when it blows up. It is a huge deal that the United States is pulling out. Obama had signed us up for it.
Trump is pulling us out. It is a huge deal. It is a major blow, because, as goes the United States, so goes the world. And I’m telling you that leftists around the world are shocked and ticked off like you can’t believe. So Trump’s rewriting environmental rules. Trump overhauling public lands administration. This is the Department of the Interior, where major changes have taken place in terms of regulations and public use.
We have already, the Trump administration’s already green lighted major — green lit, I should say — major infrastructure projects and the Trump administration is appointing figures, people, who will guarantee the triumph of its ideological vision for decades to come. Bingo! And all of this in 200 days.
Now, people don’t know it because none of this is covered in the Drive-By news, which is Russia, Russia, Russia, collusion, collusion, collusion, Mueller, Mueller, Mueller. Trump’s a pig, Trump’s a pig, Trump’s a pig. Or whatever’s going on in the White House briefing, or whatever argument’s Trump is having with the media. But in the real world things are happening, and they are significant things.
Let me find — there is a companion piece to this major infrastructure pieces going on. Oh, have you seen the story, they’re trying to warn you that your pet’s environmental footprint is bigger than you think and that your pets may be contributing to climate change, too? But of course they’re not preaching to you to change anything. No, no, no. Gore’s not telling you to do anything. But here’s a story, your pets, your dogs, your cats, your hamsters, whatever, your gerbils, they are creating more climate change damage than you ever knew. You might want to think about getting rid of some, says the story.
This is from a website called Eureka Alert: “How to Pave Over Our Big Butt Problem.” Now, wait, before you have a knee-jerk reaction. That’s the headline. It’s a story about recycling and the thing that’s been discovered here is mixing cigarette butts with asphalt. “Asphalt mixed with cigarette butts can handle heavy traffic and also reduce thermal conductivity. This means the product could not only solve a huge waste problem but would also be useful in reducing the urban heat island effect common in cities.”
What is that? Very simply, what color is asphalt? It’s black. What happens when the sun shines on black surfaces? The black surface absorbs the heat, correct? And then that heat is reflected back off of the surface. In certain circumstances you can literally feel the heat waves, can you not? This happens frequently in major cities. You can feel the heat waves coming up. In fact, I remember back in the late seventies, eighties when I worked for the Kansas City Royals, the artificial surface in those days, AstroTurf, Tartan Turf, it was on asphalt. Did you know this? A bed of black asphalt was laid, and that’s what the carpet was put on top of. There was black asphalt underneath the green AstroTurf or Tartan Turf. And that stuff was very thin. There wasn’t any padding under it.
And I can remember on sunny Sunday day games in August where in our dugout there would be buckets and buckets of ice where players — outfield — well, the whole turf, there was no dirt except in the base pits. Players would come stand in the ice to cool off their shoes. You could be 120 degrees on the field with the heat waves rising. I wonder what impact asphalt has on temperature readings where they are measuring climate change temperatures.
Oh. And have you heard that in Australia they discovered that the official weather service there had been monkeying with the official temperature? You know how? They were not reporting accurate low temperatures. They were making up low temperatures by adding to them. The entire heat graph of Australia now needs to be changed because of this fraud.
So, anyway, cigarette butts mixed with asphalt reduces the heat absorption aspect of asphalt, and it also withstands the heavy traffic use that asphalt gets and it would help with these endless cigarette butts that are all over the place, cleaning up the mess, mixing them in with asphalt. Who knew? It’s part of what’s happening in all of this infrastructure innovation that’s taking place.
So IBD, Investor’s Business Daily talks about this Atlantic piece, goes on to detail these achievements and more. Border crossings are down. They have plummeted, in fact, even though all Trump’s done so far is to promise to enforce existing laws. The EPA is dismantling Obama’s coal-killing Clean Power Plan. How about coal coming back? Obama really did promise and fulfilled it, to tear down the coal industry. Trump’s bringing it back.
The point is, in 200 days major significant changes have taken place, and I’ll tell you this. This is also panicking the people in Washington, in the swamp, in the establishment. This just can’t stand. They can’t let this go on if they have any say-so over it at all.
So many people say, “Why don’t the Republicans just get up behind Trump?” Somebody over the weekend said to me, “Do you realize how much more Trump could have gotten done if his own party would get behind him?” I said, “Yeah.” I said, “Why do you think they’re not?” I’ve often found it to be more persuasive if you can encourage people to answer their own questions, ’cause then they will believe themselves. “Man, if the Republicans would just help him.”


http://www.investors.com/politics/edito ... tuff-done/
"Trump Has Quietly Accomplished More Than It Appears" reads the headline in the Atlantic.

"With the Trump administration's chaos sucking up all the attention," the article begins, "it's been able to move forward on a range of its priorities.... It is remaking the justice system, rewriting environmental rules, overhauling public-lands administration, and greenlighting major infrastructure projects. It is appointing figures who will guarantee the triumph of its ideological vision for decades to come."

It goes on to detail these achievements, many of which we've highlighted on these pages.

Border crossings, for example, have plummeted, even though all Trump has done so far is promise to enforce existing laws.

The Supreme Court approved parts of Trump's travel ban, a success made possible by Trump's appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the bench.

Trump is busy filling lower court positions with conservative justices. Ron Klain, a White House aide to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said that Trump "is proving wildly successful in one respect: naming youthful conservative nominees to the federal bench in record-setting numbers."

What else? Well, Trump pulled out of the Paris climate change deal, which as we noted in this space is a yuuuge win for the economy.

The EPA, meanwhile, is dismantling Obama's coal-killing, growth-choking Clean Power Plan, and draining the heavy-handed Waters of the United States rule. When a veteran EPA official resigned this week, she complained in a letter to her former colleagues that "the new EPA Administrator already has repeals of 30 rules under consideration," which the New York Times described as "a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency's 47-year history."

Trump promised to kill two regulations for every new one enacted, but in his first six months the ratio was 16-to-1.

Trump also approved the Keystone XL and other pipeline projects held up by Obama. He's also rolled back a ban on coal mining on public lands.

To be sure, Trump hasn't scored a major legislative achievement on signature issues like ObamaCare and tax reform.

The Atlantic writer describes the administration's achievements as something akin to a shadow government. But these actions aren't in the shadows. They're just being ignored by a media that is obsessed with digging up dirt on Trump.

And by pulling out of the Paris Accords where is all that saved money going towards? Military spending! Not a dime or cent is going to mainstreet domestically that's for sure.

President Trump Delivers on Jobs for the American People

“Today we take one more step in putting the jobs, wages, and economic security of American citizens first.” – President Donald J. Trump

FROM 8 YEARS OF OBSTRUCTION TO 8 WEEKS OF ACTION: Today, President Donald J. Trump announced TransCanada would receive a Presidential permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline.

Despite complying with every requirement and study, including relocating the route, the Keystone XL pipeline faced eight years of obstruction.
In his first week in office, President Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum to clear roadblocks to construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The Keystone XL pipeline is a $8 billion investment that will move 800,000 barrels of oil per day to Gulf Coast refineries, reducing the United States’ dependency on foreign oil.
Constructing the Keystone XL pipeline is expected to support 42,100 jobs across the country for up to two years, 16,100 would be directly related to the project.
The Keystone XL pipeline is expected to contribute approximately $3.4 billion to the United States GDP.
Under the Trump administration, Government bureaucracy is getting out of the way so this $8 billion investment can finally get started.
PARTNERING WITH PRIVATE SECTOR: Today, President Trump joined Charter Communications in announcing their commitment to invest in American jobs.

Charter will be opening a brand new call center in McAllen, Texas, where the company will create 600 new American jobs.
Charter will invest $25 billion in its United States infrastructure.
Over the next four years, Charter will hire 20,000 American workers and is committed to on-shore 100 percent of the foreign call center and technical support roles it inherited from Time Warner Cable.
MAKING JOB CREATION A PRIORITY: President Donald J. Trump is looking out for the American workers who Washington has left behind.

President Trump has worked with the private sector to deliver tens of thousands of new jobs for Americans.
President Trump ordered the United States to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and negotiations.
President Trump signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 38, to prevent the burdensome “Stream Protection Rule” from causing further harm to the coal industry.
President Trump ordered the review of the “Clean Water Rule: Definition of Waters of the United States,” known as the WOTUS rule, to evaluate whether it is stifling economic growth or job creation.
THE PRESIDENT FULFILLING HIS PROMISE: President Trump promised the American people he would put their interests first.

In his “Contract with the American Voter,” President Trump promised he would lift “roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.”
As a candidate, Mr. Trump promised “I am going to bring back the jobs that have been stripped away from you and your country.”

Benedict Arnold is always claiming how the stock market is at all time highs under his presidency and, how this is beneficial for the general economy at large? They were saying the same thing during the 1920's before the great depression, in fact the stock market was at all time highs right before it crashed during the historical great depression era.

The stock market is no indicator for the overall health of an economy but instead only mirrors how well the very wealthy are doing instead. It says nothing about the large majority of the population that lives in the United States.

Also, within the last year many economists are coming out with concerns that the stock market is very overvalued which usually means there are systemic risks on the horizion and the beginning of a stock market bubble that will eventually burst. Benedict Arnold certainly knows how to manipulate a majority of the population that have no understanding of economics or economic current events.

Yes, I knew he was a zionist but somehow me and others were thinking to ourselves that just maybe he might put the interests of the country first that he claimed he would do where there was the attitude that we could ignore that he was one. Big mistake obviously.

Steve Bannon is a former Goldman Sachs employee (And another christian zionist unfortunately) and usually that would make me skeptical of somebody really quickly but one of the reasons I liked at least some of what he does is because generally he was taking a tough stance against China in terms of trade and sincerely wanted to initiate some nationalist economic policies that would effectively protect the interests of the American working class.

It's another case of wanting to overlook some things for the greater cause of securing the nation and such. I'm starting to wonder if overlooking a few things here and there is a mistake.

I don't know if we'll regret supporting him like Benedict Arnold or not. Either way he is out of the government administration going back to being a news journalist.

The stock market highs indicate folks are accumulating debt, whether they are borrowing to buy shares outright or borrowing to buy things which boost eps. The stock market isn't overvalued even though the baby boomers desperately want it to be. The supply of shares is shrinking as companies buy their shares back either with profits or by issuing bonds and central banks take shares off the market (permanently presumably) in an effort to weaken their currencies for the goal of producing inflation in an arbitrary basket of goods.

Trump is a complete idiot and if he had another brain cell, it would die of loneliness. Before the election he called the market a bubble and now he's taking credit as if he's accomplished anything at all or created even one job and yet somehow he thinks he has influenced the earnings that underpin the price of shares. He's taking credit for unemployment declines like someone cutting into a drivethru line and stealing a happymeal.

What Trump has accomplished is threefold: Pissed off liberals who are currently slaving to take away our freedoms, demonstrated wealth has nothing to do with IQ, and increased the depth of the swamp exponentially.

The banks are printing lots of money, but giving it to the wrong people, which furthers the wealth divide. If the middle class wants money, they have to borrow it from the 1% at interest to supplement their piss-poor salaries. If we add the debt of the middle class to the graph of the wealth divide, it smooths it out a bit. Everything they do is making the situation worse. Conservatives are too dumb to see it and liberals are too crazy to care. It's like Dunning-Kruger vs Freddy Krueger for a true nightmare on mainstreet. (Wonder if I can copyright that :-k )

Benedict Arnold is claiming that he'll shut the government down if he has to over funding to build a wall on the Mexican American border. Now to be fair I am supporter of such an initiative because for decades unchecked migration from Mexico into the United States has spiralled out of control. Still, I think this is all grand standing by Benedict Arnold because there is no way his masters are going to let him shut down the federal government in any matter at all. Moreover there is opposition to build the wall by democrats and neoconservatives alike that I honestly believe Benedict Arnold will cave into their demands. I'll be surprised if anything at all is built on the southern national border at this point.

Trump has lost almost all of his base that got him elected, and he has also lost the Russian leader who helped him win the election.

Despite not liking Benedict Arnold the Russian hacking narrative is still bullshit. There are certain factions of the American military industrial machine that want to start a world war with Russia and China. This is the epitome of stupidity and something we should never even think about doing. Ironically the democratic party that use to be anti war is now the biggest warmongering party of the nation. The democratic party was silent on war the entire Obama administration.

Anybody with a brain knows that neither party of the two party political system in the United States doesn't represent the majority. Both parties represent Wallstreet as this is a corporatocracy police state.

I have been checking it several times a day since 2010. Rarely a need to go anywhere else. It's hard to believe 2 or 3 guys churn all that out and I can't imagine they have any sort of life.

I know you and great deal of others are still hopeful in Trump despite everything he is in error of, I believe this faith of yours in him politically is unfounded.


Trump said NAFTA may need to go, if the current negotiations aren't successful for America. He has also already done plenty of excellent things so far, including giving voice to the silent majority of naturally more conservative anti-leftist citizens.

You have to remember what immense pressures Trump is under. He is playing a very strategic game with the swamp creatures. If he overplays his hand they will remove him-- literally. He knows this. Thus he is negotiating.

If there is one thing Trump has achieved above all others, it is perhaps elevating the consciousness of so many millions of Americans regarding the fake news statist leftist neocon propaganda that passes for American corporate "news". There is no going back from this, the propaganda machine cannot recover. Notice their frenzy now, their hysteria and bringing everything totally out in the open now. They don't give a shit that we know, because Trump exposed them.

Swamp creatures die in the light of day. But before they die they squirm and rage and whither.

I'll agree that Trump isn't perfect. But just imagine if The Shillary had won.

Unlike you, I do not want total collapse because I don't imagine some silly utopian anarchist white nationalist revolution. When the political center collapses you have a crap shoot between if the communists or the Nazis take over, this happened to Germany, it could happen here but I don't think it will. Americans are far too earthy, raw, "conservative", pragmatic, and capitalistic to see the political middle collapse like that. Instead you will see more extremist pressure for another year or two, then things will return to a state approximating normalcy as this current moral panic passes, as Styx called it.

Why do you think the swamp is panicking? They know time is against them. Trump is playing chess with them, and he just forced them to sideline their long term strategy to address an immediate and crushing tactical threat Trump created. They may counter that threat but if you know anything about chess, in so doing they wreck their overall strategy.
