The Magnitude of Today’s Meeting Between PDJT & President Bolsonaro Of Brazil Can Be Felt All Over the World! Especially In China…..

I cannot overemphasize what the visit by President Bolsonaro of Brazil to the White House means for China.

I wrote the following thread and article on March 9th:

From the article linked above:

China is completely reliant on soybeans as a protein-rich animal feed (especially for their pigs) and as a cooking oil.  The U.S. is the worlds largest producer of soybeans at 108 million metric tonnes. Brazil is the second largest producer with around 87 million metric tonnes.

This article was written in 2013. It is relevant today to China’s needs when it comes to soybeans.

http://www.earth-policy.org/data_highlights/2013/highlights34

From the article linked above:

Four numbers tell the story of the explosive growth of soybean consumption in China. In 1995, China was producing 14 million tons of soybeans and it was consuming 14 million tons. In 2011, it was still producing 14 million tons of soybeans—but it was consuming 70 million tons, meaning that 56 million tons had to be imported.

Brazil would love to have an American military presence in their country.

The White House put the following Press Briefing out yesterday.

https://publicpool.kinja.com/subject-background-press-call-on-the-visit-of-presiden-1833387781

From the article linked above:

The U.S.-Brazil relationship has always been one of potential, but yet it always seemed that that potential has never been met. This time, it is different. This is a historic remaking of the U.S.-Brazil relationship, where there’s truly going to be a North-South axis of the two largest economies in the Western Hemisphere and a true partnership of the two largest economies in the Western Hemisphere.

Q: My first question is regarding the use of the Alcântara base. Does the U.S. need to confirm it by the U.S. Congress? And the second question is: What are the concrete steps being taken by the U.S. government to increase trade cooperation with Brazil?

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: So, going to the first question, I think that is in line with what we were previously talking about in regards to the Technology Safeguards Agreement. And that was understanding. I’m not sure, in regards to whether — I don’t believe that it needs to go to Congress. We can get you a follow-up after with that, for sure. But, obviously, that is a big development and it goes back to what I was saying in regards to the U.S. commercial space (inaudible) and the closer defense cooperation. And we think that that’s a great development.

President Bolsonaro was on with Shannon Bream last night. You can watch the interview in the tweet below:

You can watch the Joint Press Conference starting at 1:45 PM by using the link below.

President Bolsonaro is described as the Brazilian DJT. Both men are Nationalists and share a similar geopolitical outlook.

      1. WOW! That is an honor like no other. That is a BIG compliment.

        I just LOVE this picture!!!

        I love this one, too!!!

        What about 19? Is the significance TODAY?

        “Bolsonaro 17” was a thing because that was his candidate number. So 19 is like 17 plus 2, or maybe another reason.

        ________________

        For those who are too young to remember, Pelé was a soccer player, and his personal popularity was probably the biggest reason that ‘we’ (what I understand to be called ‘Generation X’, I don’t follow that terminology very well) were all compelled to play in start-up soccer leagues all over America in the mid-1970s.

        It’s almost like you’d think I’d BEEN there! 😁

      From the article linked above:

      Unlike any jersey number in any other sport, the No. 10 jersey in soccer carries with it a certain caché, a sense of prestige, a sign of respect. For as long as I can remember, the 10 shirt has been the hottest commodity on the youth level and what the best players strive toward earning.

      The mysterious persona behind wearing the No. 10 jersey has taken on a life of its own over the years. A player filling “the No. 10 role” even has become a talking point for experts and pundits. It comes with immense pressure – which the game’s greats relish.

  1. i was wondering if all the noise about NK restarting their nuclear facilities again might be the “mask” that China needs to save a little face. If they can “assist” in getting NK to permanently denuke (which it seems they wanted to do) then POTUS can cut them a little slack in return for this “favor”. The Chinese do not lose face entirely with the world and POTUS can make a deal– getting a twofer out of it (China and NK).

  2. Great post!

    I would make a suggestion – most of us here know the significance of Soybeans to China and how Brazil fits in the picture. But it jumps a little fast from “Brazil is the second largest producer” to “China needs soybeans” for newbies. It would be great to spell it out clearly: China is in a bind on soybeans. They have to buy X tonnes. Unless they buy from the U.S. or the U.S. and Brazil, they cannot sustain their needs. At this point a chart/graph showing U.S. production, Brazil production, World production, and China consumption would tie it all together. Then we can add U.S. and Brazil together have tremendous agrictulural leverage against China – seeing this U.S./Brazil meeting has China and President Xi sweating!

    1. Micheal great point! I just wanted to give a taste from my article from March 9th. If you look at the article, the situation facing China is spelled out.

      From the article:

      Global demand for soybeans has soared in recent decades, with China leading the race. Nearly 60 percent of all soybeans entering international trade today go to China, making it far and away the world’s largest importer.

      As China’s appetite for meat, milk, and eggs has soared, so too has its use of soybean meal. And since nearly half the world’s pigs are in China, the lion’s share of soy use is in pig feed. Its fast-growing poultry industry is also dependent on soybean meal. In addition, China now uses large quantities of soy in feed for farmed fish.

      The principal effect of skyrocketing world soybean consumption has been a restructuring of agriculture in the western hemisphere. In the United States there is now more land in soybeans than in wheat. In Brazil, the area in soybeans exceeds that of all grains combined. Argentina’s soybean area is now close to double that of all grains combined, putting the country dangerously close to becoming a soybean monoculture. Together they account for over four fifths of world soybean production. For six decades, the United States was both the leading producer and exporter of soybeans, but in 2011 Brazil’s exports narrowly eclipsed those from the United States.

      1. Do you think it is possible, either short term or long term, for China to diversify its consumption away from soybeans? Or is soybeans the only economical product that can meet their demand?

      Time to yank all the troops and armarment out of Germany. I am sure Poland or another Easter European Nation would be happy to host the USA instead.

    1. phoenixRising,

      The guy sounds like he is the one with the eyes in the rear view mirror.

      A person from the early 1700s would be flabberghasted by the goods available to some one during the Victorian era after the first Industrial Revolution. Someone from the mid 1800s would be floored by the lifestyle of America’s ‘poor’

      Luddites were members of the organized bands of 19th-century English handicraftsmen who rioted for the destruction of machinery during the first Industrial Revolution. This guy sounds like a modern day Luddite.

      The problem is the Luddites are ALWAYS WRONG. Jobs may change but they do not go away. There will ALWAYS be manufacturing. It is the methods that change and President Trump is encouraging the building of NEW plants using NEW INOVATIVE Technology. Will they take less people? Maybe not because REGULATIONS cause an INCREASE in personel. Think of all the additional people that have to be hired now compared to 150 years ago before FDR and the FED.

    2. ZeroHedge is stacked with Russian proxies.

      Follow the links to the sources of some of their articles: “Strategic Culture”, “Pepe Escobar”, obscure Eurasian think-tanks. Look at the balance of content at those sites.

      Sputnik and RT fixtures or slightly less blatant appendages. Quality Russophilic chestnuts from The Nation, scholars (Russian Studies types like Nellie Ohr) who do commie soooo fluently.

      They emphasize convergences that appeal to us – for example, support for anti-EU patriots or off-grid preppers. Extreme libertarians who sometimes get it right, but just happen to be in sync with Uncle Vlad. It all reeks of Divide-&-Conquer.

      Financial analysis, whether commodities or precious metals or debt ratios or whatever, is relentlessly pessimistic. ~ No Flep to leaven that outlook! ~ Data, cute charts and all, beyond-damned-liars lying with statistics.

      They’ll retail headlines of patently fake stories in order to panic Wall Street, however briefly. The market dips, then corrects. What’s the purpose of this exercise?

  5. It occurs to me the bad weather this fall and winter maybe major bad news for China. It has been the wettest winter I have seen in NC. Plus the floods in Nebraska & Iowa and elsewhere are going to have a major effect on livestock production and also soybean/grain production.

    I could make a stab at what the weather is going to mean for American food $$$ going forward as well as soy bean exports, but perhaps Pat Frederick’s son-in-law could give us a much better picture. I just do not have the access to the specialized programs that he probably does.

    Do not forget the food riots in 2008…

    This is a reprint of a comment on the blog Ice Age Now (Robert Felix) It mentions the points I am thinking about.

    US Food Riots Much Closer Than You Think

    “I spent about thirty years working in commercial agribusiness. My main job was to purchase ingredients, mainly grain, for flour mills and animal feed mills. As a part of my job, I was forced to understand the US food supply system, its strengths and weaknesses. Over the years, I became aware of some things that nearly all Americans are completely unaware of. I am going to make a list of statements and then you will see where I’m going.

    — 1% of the US population grows all of the food for all Americans.

    — …

    — The bulk of the food we eat comes from grain……

    The lion’s share of grain produced in the US is done in a concentrated part of the US Midwest (Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri is the center of this area). The grain is moved to the coasts (where 70% of the population live) by only TWO (2) railroads……

    — Nothing is stored for very long in a supermarket. One day grain travels (by rail) from Kansas to Seattle to a flour mill. The next day the flour mill makes the flour and sends it to a bakery. The next day the bakery makes it into bread (and other baked things) and the next day it is at the store where it is purchased that day. Nobody stores anything. The grain is produced and stored in the Midwest and shipped daily in a single railroad pipeline to the rest of America where the people live. [Did I mention I HATE Just-in-Time?]

    — Up until the 1980s there was a system that stored a lot of grain in elevators around the country. At one time, a whole year’s harvest of grain was stored that way. But since taxpayers were paying to store it, certain urban politicians engineered the movement of that money… [MAJOR Story about that I could tell]. So now, nothing is stored. We produce what we consume each year and store practically none of it. There is no contingency plan.…..

    –So, basically, we have in place a recipe for a disaster that will dwarf any other localized disasters imaginable. The important thing to note is that there is no solution for this event.

    Why isn’t there a solution in place?

    In the 1970s, the USDA revamped FDR’s government owned grain reserves into the Farmer-Owned Grain Reserve. This policy encouraged farmers to store grain in government facilities by offering low-cost and even no-interest loans and reimbursement to cover the storage costs. However this did not suit the international grain traders. So over the next quarter of a century they lobbied to deregulated markets nationally and internationally. Then, Dan Amstutz, VP of Cargill, wrote the draft that became the WTO Agreement on Ag in 1995 and also the draft of what was to become the 1996 Freedom to Farm Fail Act. This act abolished the U.S. strategic grain reserve and also bankrupted a large number of US farmers.

    When there were food riots throughout the world in 2008 and the USDA reported “The Cupboard is Bare” The grain traders wrote to Bush…

    July 22, 2008 letter to President Bush

    …Recently there have been increased calls for the development of a U.S. or international grain reserve to provide priority access to food supplies for Humanitarian needs. The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and the North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA) strongly advise against this concept..Stock reserves have a documented depressing effect on prices… and resulted in less aggressive market bidding for the grains.” h.ttp://www.naega.org/images/pdf/grain_reserves_for_food_aid.pdf

    HERE IS THE THINKING OF THESE SONS OF LEECHES

    Food shortfalls predicted

    In summary, we have record low grain inventories globally as we move into a new crop year. We have demand growing strongly. Which means that going forward even small crop failures are going to drive grain prices to record levels. As an investor, we continue to find these long term trends…very attractive.” — 2008

    1. A bit more on Dan Amstutz who I hope is resting very uncomfortably right next to [No Name] and the nasty plans of the grain traders and speculators like Goldman Sachs.

      Dan Amstutz, was HONORED by an award dedicated to him for the work he had done on behalf of the grain traders. Stuff like convincing Congress to get rid of the Strategic Grain Reserves here in the USA so the traders could make more money while people starved.

      Read the Agreement on Agriculture some time. It was written by Dan Amstutz,
      ♦️ President of Cargill Investor Services 1972-1978,
      ♦️ USDA Undersecretary for International
      ♦️ Affairs and Commodity Programs 1983-1987
      ♦️ Chief Agriculture Trade Negotiator for the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1987-1989
      ♦️ Appointed to lead U.S. agricultural reconstruction efforts in Iraq
      ♦️ Wrote the WTO Agreement on Ag in 1995.
      ♦️ Wrote the DRAFT for the Freedom to Farm act in 1996.

      This law was later called the Freedom to Fail Act as US farmers over produced and grain prices dropped like a rock. Grain traders used the surplus of very cheap grain to bankrupt farmers around the world. (Think the farmers in Mexico who were wiped out.)

      This was actually a KNOWN US policy as Clinton later admitted.

      President Bill Clinton, now the UN Special Envoy to Haiti, publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient. http://www.democracynow.org/2010/4/1/clinton_rice

      ♦️ Amstutz then went to work for Goldman Sachs. This has always puzzled me until I finally ran across the last piece of the puzzle.

      That is where things get really interesting. This is stolen from
      WANTtoKNOW. Info: Excerpts of Key Financial News Articles in Major Media
      *http://www.wanttoknow.info/financialnewsarticles-20-20

      Stan Painter was the Head of the Union that inspect food here in the USA. He testified to the bad corporate practices that were swept under the rug and cause deaths.[Another long tale.]

      Commodity Futures Trading Commission judge says colleague biased against complainants

      ..Painter said Judge Bruce Levine … had a secret agreement with a former Republican chairwoman of the agency to stand in the way of investors filing complaints with the agency. “On Judge Levine’s first week on the job, nearly twenty years ago, he came into my office and stated that he had promised Wendy Gramm, then Chairwoman of the Commission, that we would never rule in a complainant’s favor,” Painter wrote. “A review of his rulings will confirm that he fulfilled his vow….

      Levine had never ruled in favor of an investor. Gramm [wife of former senator Phil Gramm (R-Tex.)], was head of the CFTC just before president Bill Clinton took office. She has been criticized by Democrats for helping firms such as Goldman Sachs and Enron gain influence over the commodity markets. After leaving the CFTC, she joined Enron’s board.

      How Goldman gambled on starvation
      (Council on Foreign Relations) https://www.cfr.org/united-states/fp-goldman-sachs-created-food-crisis/p24904

      This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world – Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more – have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn’t afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions.” Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into “derivatives” that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in “food speculation” was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof….
