WHAT WILL CHINA DO NOW?

China is now up against a Great Wall. Nearly half of the products they’ve been selling us are now too expensive for importers to buy and resell at prices that are competitive with other nations like Vietnam and Indonesia, who can produce them at less cost, and are not under burdensome tariffs as China now is.

Manufacturing is already leaving China for other nations. Any country that can produce what we need at the same cost or even a little higher, will beat China competitively, if they’re not subject to tariffs, and China’s economy is starting to circle the drain.

President Trump gave China only one option, to stop stealing and cheating and accept the new reality. Since they refuse to do so, he is forcing them to do so anyway. The tariffs he’s now imposed are cutting off the forced technology transfer. If we’re no longer doing business with them, they can manipulate their currency value all they like, as it no longer affects us. Their refusal to balance trade between us no longer matters if there is no trade.

There will be trade, we still need things from China and they still need things from us. Food, mostly, grain, soybeans and other foodstuffs. We grow far more than we use and they have 1.4 billion mouths to feed. They just retaliated with a tariff on $60 billion of our goods, which is very likely to trigger a 25% tariff on the remaining $325 billion of goods we buy yearly from them, and which will be disastrous for the Chinese economy.

So what will they do? They’ve been gearing up for war with us for a long time and becoming increasingly threatening and belligerent. Seeing the imminent collapse of their economy, will they strike?

The Chinese are unlikely to attack us unless they think they have a winning strategy, which they may. It’s more likely that they’ll strike out around them to try to control more territory while they still have the strength, means and ability to do so. Very possibly they’ll try to expand their border with Russia. An attack on Taiwan is definitely looming, there’s increasing noise about that on the Internet almost daily.

They may agree to all our terms in a trade deal after all, and then cheat and try to cover it up. Or they may sign on and then violate the agreement bit by bit over time. What they won’t do is agree and then honor the agreement.

The very fact that the Chinese leadership is so solidly intractable when it comes to making any sort of fair trade deal is a bad sign for their future intentions. My personal opinion is that they’re not going to just accept the tariffs without a fight, a real fight, guns, airplanes, rockets, bombs. The only question for me is, who do they think is weak enough to conquer, that we will not rush to defend?

TOLDJA SO

In past posts I’ve stated that global alliances are changing, and that India would very likely join forces with the USA, because of the threat to all of us from China. Now it’s happening.

TOKYO (Reuters) – In fresh show of naval force in the contested South China Sea, a U.S. guided missile destroyer conducted drills with a Japanese aircraft carrier, two Indian naval ships and a Philippine patrol vessel in the waterway claimed by China, the U.S. Navy said on Thursday.

Japan has never been a friend of Russia or China, and the hatred between China and Japan will endure for the ages after the atrocities committed in China by the Japanese in World War II. The Philippines Islands have been increasingly encroached upon by China lately, so they’re starting to look to the US once again for support, after distancing themselves from us for years. India would love to position itself as the new global economic powerhouse and it has the potential to do so, but they need to get China off their neck. China is much happier keeping India down and feeling threatened. This alliance was inevitable and created by China’s refusal to play by the rules of the rest of us.

Actions are now being taken by world leaders to neutralize China’s ability to threaten the rest of us, and new alliances, both military and economic, are vital to accomplish this.

TRANS FOR ALL

Just read where some guy broke 9 female Olympic weight lifting records in a row because he “identifies as female” and therefor is allowed to compete in the women’s weight class. All the female athletes complained that this made the whole event pointless and unfair, but maybe they’re just failing to take advantage of the New Way, themselves.

I personally identify as a Hublicabublian. I am an entirely new type of human. It doesn’t matter what my actual body is, or it’s gender, it’s who and what I identify with that counts. Next week I plan to identify as an Arcturan. With practice I hope to eventually identify and be recognized as God. I just adore being worshiped.

Those female Olympic athletes need to start identifying as Special Needs people and compete in the Special Olympics instead. They’ll sweep the fields, take away all the gold, and give this horseshit “Gender Identity” stuff a run for it’s money, because when you crap on women, no one raises much of a fuss, but when you crap on the physically and mentally disabled in a public venue, the whole world is outraged. So do it.

LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE

There might be as many as 8000 people up here in the high hills, but they’re spread out among a half-dozen small communities. While our economy is now booming under Pres. Trump, jobs are plentiful and wages are rising, there’s no jobs here and people will do most anything for a chance at minimum wage.

Since the big fire that swept through several years ago that drove a lot of people back to the cities, who’d lost their homes, the population has not rebounded. If anything it shows signs of having decreased even more.

There’s nothing here for the kids graduating high school. There’s no jobs, no college to go to and no future here. What we do have here in abundance is lots of brain-wrecked meth addicts who wander slowly up and down the main street, waving their arms this way and that, talking to no one and often stopping to do some strange dance in place, to music only they can hear. They’re here because the state gives them a monthly stipend for being incapable of any useful function and this must be one of the cheapest places to live in all of California.

We do have some large stores to shop in along with a bunch of small ones, which compete with each other for our limited supply of dollars. There’s also two thrift stores where all the hand-me-downs and cast off clothing goes, along with a regular supply of clothing and things from the deceased. There’s lots of old people here who just keep right on dying, which has a lot to do with the population decrease too. The old people die off and the kids leave. Hard to keep the population up that way.

So if your needs are basic enough and you don’t mind wearing used clothes, the monthly state dole will see you through. For myself, I’m one of those old people who has more than enough money coming in without needing to rely on the state. Enough to be comfortable in a cheap economy like this. Put me back in any big city, though, and I’d be too poor to make it.

But here I have a nice home, cable TV and Internet, good food to eat, a big garden, chickens and ducks, and anything I want I can buy online for less than anyone in town can sell it, and get it with free shipping in a few days.

What I can’t do is go see the latest movie, attend the rock concerts that never come within a hundred miles of here, have access to fine restaurants or sushi bars or great museums and so on. It’s Life In The Slow Lane. On the other hand, there’s no drive-by shootings, gang wars, illegal aliens, armed home invasions, muggings and all that other fun stuff that big city life offers in abundance.

We get a murder every 3 or 4 years, and vacant homes get broken into once in a long while, but other than someone getting drunk and making an ass of him or herself or someone getting busted with meth possession, not much happens. The crime report in our weekly newspaper is always about drunk driving arrests, probation violations, drug busts and maybe one in ten involves some sort of non-lethal violence.

City life offers glamor and lots of variety, and it also offers lots of stress, danger and expense. In the city you have to watch your back constantly. Not so here, and there’s one more thing. We have basically no traffic. There’s two traffic lights in town, about a mile apart, and if you do the speed limit you breeze right through both of them. No congestion, no snarls, no long lines of cars ahead of you, no slowing to a crawl, no taking half an hour to navigate 3 miles of city streets. Drive at the speed limit anywhere in town. Life in the slow lane is really pretty nice.

PROBABLY…

Pres. Trump recently revealed that a White House visit by China’s Pres. Xi will happen soon. Xi, a few days ago, gave a speech “addressing Chinese domestic reforms, pledging to address state subsidies, protect intellectual property rights, allow foreign investment in more sectors and avoid competitive devaluation of the yuan. All four are issues the U.S. is addressing in trade talks with Beijing.” So China is caving to the US, or more correctly, Xi is caving to Trump, over the ongoing Trade Talks, and it sounds like an agreement has PROBABLY already been reached.

The trade between the US and China has enabled China to threaten the world with their plans for domination, and threaten us most. Ending trade with China right now would more than Probably do great damage to our economy, but so is continuing it as it is. So very Probably, Trump has engineered this trade deal to at least slow China’s domination plans way down, and Very Probably, end them entirely. He knows what a threat they are and he’s not going to make any deal that will enable them to continue to be one.

The Chinese keep crowing about their new missile technology that supposedly can overwhelm anything our military can offer and it’s more than Probable that Pres. Trump is kept fully briefed on our own technological advances. We Probably have things in the works that are superior to and will nullify anything that China produces, or Pres. Trump would be pressing China to back out of those illegal installations in the South China Sea, just for starters.

We Probably have the Chinese more on the run than even they realize, thanks to the genius of Pres. Trump. I have more faith in him than I ever did in Jesus, when I was a young, gullible boy.

That porky little N. Korean tyrant Jong Il Kim is being feted in Russia right now by Putin, right after spending some time in China with Xi, and he’s making little noises about not agreeing with us about this and that. Probably, his masters have told him to cool the threats and just keep making disagreeable noises instead. For the reality is that if he actually did attempt any sort of nuclear strike against anyone, we would nuke him into oblivion regardless of who else got in the way.

The world’s nations are undergoing a whole new realignment as they find themselves so disadvantaged by the ones they’re in now, with the German-run EU, the debt entrapping Chinese and the Russian energy bullies, and we’re in the thick of this game.

World politics is the greatest Soap Opera of all time. It never ends, a new crisis is always just around the corner.

THE CHICKENFRUIT SONG

Ohhhhh, I pluck my eggs in the morning from the chicken fruit tree,
The tree’s always happy to give them to me.
I just reach out my hand and take a few for free,
I’m a happy little chappie with my chickenfruit tree.

How those eggs get on that tree,
there really is no doubt.
The chickens like to roost in it,
at night when the fox is about.
But when they’d come down by day,
and go in their henhouse to lay,
the eggs they left the day before,
wouldn’t be there anymore.

Of course, it was me who took ’em,
while they slept without a snore,
and when they came and found them gone,
it made those birds quite sore.
So they did the only thing they could, those clever little pests.
They learned from the other birds and built in the branches, nests.

BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE

As the wet, soggy ashes of what remains of the Notre Dame cathedral are scooped up and bagged, what should appear but, no, not 8 tiny reindeer, but a guy with a couple of cans full of gasoline, they look like the 2 gallon size each, in the photos, walked into St. Patrick’s cathedral in New York just a few hours ago and was quickly nabbed by security.

Okay, let’s shred the obvious here. He was a copycat firebug intent on torching America’s counterpart, as much as it could be called that given the differences in age and fame, to Notre Dame.

The other obvious part that no one seemed to pay any attention to except me, is that they had SECURITY IN THE CHURCH. Muslims have been keeping guards in their mosques here for a while now after the various attacks, and it only makes sense that American churches would follow suit, especially considering the hatred of Muslims toward all non-Muslim religions. And toward all non-Muslims too, of course.

But my, how times have changed, when churches have to have (armed?) guards, security guards, to keep them from being robbed, vandalized, shot up…. There’s been a lot of attacks lately on all of them, black Christian churches, Jewish Synagogues, and now maybe the Catholic churches and cathedrals?

Personally it would do my heart good to see all the Catholic places of sky fairy worship destroyed. Bomb the Vatican flat, killing all within the walls, torch the whole thing until only ash is left and then sow salt over everything that remains. Then go after the Muslims. Getting rid of the Jehovah’s Witnesses would be good, too. Goddam porch preachers.

Seriously, religion is on the wane and I can’t help thinking that the astoundingly disrespectful intrusions of all those Islamic mind-slaves is the cause of it. Nothing has made humanity look long at religion more than the nastiness of Islam and those who profess it. Catholicism may be evil, and it is, but Islam is actually Satanic, if there can be such a thing. At least the Catholics don’t bury women up to their necks in the dirt and bash their heads in slowly throwing small rocks at them for a few hours, or chop off heads with hunting knives for imaginary crimes. It’s the horrors of what is claimed to be a religion that has people shying away from all religion.

I’M ALL A-TWITTER

I wanted to see the video that Pres. Trump put up on Twitter, so I created a Twitter account using an email address that I seldom use, and then viewed the video.

Below it were a lot of hostile and rather vicious comments against Pres. Trump by Muslims and others I think I can safely assume are democrats and Liberal Socialists.

One of them stated that “I stand with Omar” and I couldn’t resist commenting that “That’s funny, you don’t look like a goat”.

Within SECONDS, seriously, it couldn’t have been as much as ten seconds and I think it was less, when the screen changed and it read that YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED . For a rules violation.

In the first place, it’s not possible that some actual live person discovered my comment way down on a long list of comments, decided that I was a Bad Person and suspended my account that quickly. What IS possible, in fact the only possibility, is that the word “goat” is a trigger when it comes to anything Islam or Muslim.

Plainly, Twitter is just another Facebook libtard pile of crap so it’s no wonder that the vast majority of comments regarding Pres. Trump’s Omar video were so hostile and negative toward Pres. Trump. Social media sites like that have all been pretty much taken over by the traitors, Communists and other radically wrong political trash. There’s a reason I never had a Twitter account, and it’s the same reason I don’t have a Facebook account. There’s no freedom of speech in these venues. You either toe their political line or you get the boot, and apparently there’s virtually no slack at all in what you’re allowed to say or not say.

It is amusing that such a very Left-Wing website is stuck with hosting virtually anything and everything that Pres. Trump posts, including videos that attack the Left. If they didn’t, they’d lose nearly all of their users and most of their revenue because it’s Pres. Trump who really put them on the map. Without his posts to his account, that the whole world follows, they’d be nothing. I bet that really gets their goat.


TO INVADE OR NOT TO INVADE

Reading the comments by various South Americans on Twitter regarding V.P. Pence’s statements at the UN over the situation in Venezuela, it’s a mixed bag. There’s lots of Leftists on that continent and they’re clearly unhappy about Trump’s increasingly aggressive stance regarding who should be president of Venezuela.

Of course, only a few of them actually claim to be Venezuelans and that’s not provable anyway. Most are Bolivian or whatever, who are part of the “Yankee go home” crowd.

They do have a reason to be alarmed though. The Washington rhetoric is very familiar to any of us who’ve been around for awhile and it’s the same old record that always gets played before the guns come out and the soldiers march off to war.

This is a war to be expected, however. We aren’t being given a choice by Russia, China, Cuba and Iran, who are all meddling heavily in Venezuela’s future, to our huge disadvantage, and doing nothing and allowing that nation to go from being another failed socialist experiment to being a vassal state of a consortium of dictatorships that’s practically on our doorstep, is simply not allowable.

This isn’t a redo of the Cuban Missile Crisis, not yet, but it could easily turn into one or worse. The Russians installed ICBMs on Cuban soil aimed at us and we nearly went to nuclear war over the situation. The part of that story that isn’t discussed is that we had missiles next to them, aimed at them, too. This all ended when we mutually removed our nukes from each other’s neighborhoods.

So imagine if the Chinese and Russians are allowed to partition Venezuela and install missile sites aimed at us, while sucking dry the world’s largest known oil deposit. It would end in disaster for us, which is exactly why they’re trying to take the country over. We can’t possibly allow it.

To be a fly on the wall at the Oval Office, and in the halls of the Senate. I can imagine some of the conversations, though. Forces are being gathered, preparations are being made and pressures are being brought to bear. The Venezuelan oil fields are the juiciest plum on the planet and someone is going to pick that plum. Who will it be? Literally, the future of humanity rests on the outcome.

YOU WERE WARNED

One thing that really becomes very apparent after awhile with Pres. Trump is that every time he warns that he might do something, he at least comes so close to actually doing it before another solution is found, that you know he’s always serious.

The other thing is that every time he says he WILL do something, he does it. This is one President that doesn’t waffle or renege. Iran, today, is a case in point. He said before that he was going to kill the deal Obama made with Iran and he did. He then re-instituted the sanctions on them that were there before Obama made a mess of things, and a few days ago said that he was going to declare Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a Terrorist Organization. Today he did exactly that even as their Supreme Ayatollah was spewing threats against us if he did.

He said he was going to get the Wall built and in spite of heavy resistance from some in both parties, it’s getting built, section by section, bit by bit. Even if it never runs the full 2000 miles of Mexican border during his terms as President, no doubt the most important parts will be built and the rest of the area will be better patrolled, because we FINALLY have a president who isn’t a globalist, communist, homosexual or secret Muslim, but a true patriot and a man of his word who knows how to get things done and does so.
