China has messed with the wrong Eagle! Their economy is crumbling right in front of our eyes. There is absolutely nothing they can do to reverse it.

From the article linked above:

China has reported that August imports from US fall 22.5% amid a tariff war with Washington, while exports to US fall 16%.

Exports to the United States sank to $44.4 billion.

Chinese exporters also face pressure from weakening global demand at a time when Beijing is telling them to find other markets to replace the United States.

China has reported its exports sank 3% in August amid a tariff war with Washington, while imports rose 1.7%.

Chinese exporters also face pressure from weakening global consumer demand.

From the article linked above:

Chinese President Xi Jinping urged the ruling Communist Party to brace for a “long-term” struggle against a variety of threats, the latest in a series of warnings to a nation facing a slowing economy and a more confrontational U.S.

Xi said officials needed to display a “fighting spirit” to overcome challenges ranging from security concerns to financial risks, according to the official Xinhua News Agency. “The struggles we face will not be short term, but long term,” Xi told a cadre training course Tuesday in Beijing, adding that difficulties would persist through at least 2049, the 100th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

Xi opened the year by stressing the need to maintain political stability as the economy slows. China is projected to see the slowest growth in gross domestic product in almost three decades this year — a concern made worse by the trade war with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The MSM has finally woken up to the fact that our President’s plan along was to strip businesses out of China. It took the MORONS two years to see it. Problem for them and China is that they are too late to the party.

From the article linked above (first article):

Given the timing of the change in tone, it seems more likely that what’s making the difference is a realization on both sides that there’s another way this trade war could end – and that possible ending is one the U.S. is very unlikely to lose.

That alternate ending is summed up in one word: decoupling.

The decoupling push is quite different than any U.S. efforts to get China to open up more of its economy to American companies. Instead, it focuses on reducing America’s extremely heavy reliance on China for so much of its manufacturing needs.

Even if China’s economy weren’t so closed off to so many American goods and services, a strong argument has long been made that the U.S. needs to diversify its sources for imports. While finding those new sources wouldn’t necessarily do anything to dent America’s trade imbalances, it would reduce the risks of a major disruption to the U.S. economy based on disputes or other problems connected to a single foreign country.

For China, further decoupling has to be a terrifying scenario. The U.S. remains the world’s number one consumer market, and America is now clearly looking to shop around. Beijing needs to come up with some kind of offer to slow this trend either at the trade negotiating table or in some kind of arrangement with the U.S. manufacturers that are still in China.

Meanwhile, the benefits of American trade diversification and continued U.S. economic strength are giving the Trump administration the gift of time.

In the end, simply looking out for U.S. security concerns above immediate economic benefits might have been the point of this trade war all along.

Guess what country is completely dependent on China buying their products. It would be Germany. They are going to be in a recession as soon as the 3rd Quarter GDP number is released. The fact that China is devaluing their currency and can’t afford to buy from Germany is a double disaster for them.

PM Merkel just recently visited China.

This CEO absolutely gets it! In the interview, Cambria CEO Marty Davis calls out how Wall Street greed created the China problem that nearly destroyed Main Street.

He discusses the root of the trade issues with China and President Trump’s efforts to address the problem.  He accurately calls attention to the origin of the issue; and explains the current consequences of decisions made by an alignment of Wall Street interests and powerful U.S. politicians.

This is well worth nine minutes of your time.

These POS are going to burn in HELL for the rest of eternity. My heart was broken after reading this. I am WARNING you in advance.

From the article linked above:

The CEO of StemExpress admitted in court Thursday that her biotech company supplies beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers.

She also admitted at the preliminary hearing of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress that the baby’s head could be procured attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away.”

“That is an especially gruesome admission, but it begs the question: how did they get these fully intact human children?” says Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society, which is representing Daleiden at the hearing.

Our President retweeted Judge Jeanine’s opening monologue on James Comey.

The Trump Judicial Armada is up to 160 Federal Judges! With another 100 in the pipeline.

More great news coming out of the 5th Circuit. Warren’s CFPB is next.

The crazier they get the better! Not only will our President win reelection, we will gain a few more seats in the Senate and take back the House.

This is what happens when you go full crazy.

Thank God for Emmanuel Macron! He has to be one of the dumbest Prime Ministers ever. Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage are laughing their asses off. The two men want a No-Deal Brexit. They aren’t going to come begging for an extension.

From the article linked above:

The EU will refuse another delay to Brexit in the current circumstances, according to France’s Foreign Minister.

Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Sunday that as things stand, a delay beyond the October 31 deadline would not be granted. 

Asked if a Brexit delay was possible, the French minister told Europe 1 radio not under the current conditions. 

“We are not going to do [extend] this every three months,” he added. “The British must tell us what they want.”

      1. Xi is very smart to send the signals he’s sending. (1) He is gaining himself FLEXIBILITY on future problems, (2) he is DECOUPLING expectations from the 100-year anniversary. The coupling of Soviet expectations with 2017 is what screwed Cankles and Co. – they needed to “ride out Trump” but instead doubled down to meet their unrealistic goals in an even more unrealistic timeframe.

        Xi is not going to make that mistake. As to flexibility, there will be big shakeups coming. Best to SEE THEM CLEARLY and not assume that old viewpoints will work.

            1. Agree, Ozzy. Have traveled throughout China (but only a keen observer), and I feel extremely sorry for what is to come. Xi says tough times until 2049 ! That blew my mind when I read it. So many people who depend upon tourist tips, tourist travel/hotel/food services will be greatly reduced…often the only source of income.
              The government controls EVERY aspect of their lives. They get their utilities free…but only when the government decides to turn them on…so, in an austerity mood they might not allow heat, for example, in a huge apartment building until February.
              But, IMO it will be lack of food that will be the killer…not unlike NK. Just my opinion.

Degradation of ag land from pollution, diversion of water to other perpurses. They had planned on buying up food from pristine ag sources with good husbandry, food standards, pollution control. They have brought a lot of land , food processing plants o/s but hard currency is going to be the crunch for them.

      What will replace the China Communist Party when it collapses?
      Communist collapse takes a long time. If it does happen in the future one has to be careful that we do not allow what happened in Russia where a group of Putin cronies stole the wealth of the country and created a bunch of Oligarchs and the west counterpart benefitted greatly.
      To me the Chinese communist party is like the mafia one can join but not leave.

The govt businesses were so stultified that everyone depended on the black market. Their govt jobs were for show while they spent their time on “foreign orders”- stuff to make money or Aquire goods for barter. The fake work was called tufti, (I think).

  2. I’ve got to read the Fifth Circuit opinion but I’m guessing that it does indeed spell curtains for CFPB, also.

    My question is:

    Once the logical interpretation of the constitution causes those two ‘agencies’ to be defunct, what happens to the Federal Reserve? Seems to me that it is predicated on the same flawed notion of federal-authority-not-in-the-constitution as the other two.

    Of course, DJT could cause an immediate explosion via Executive Order by ordering the Treasury to immediately begin assuming the duties/functions of the Fed. Starting with the basic function of the constitution – to fix the value of gold & silver.

    The basic progressive lawsuit would be filed against him within hours, the media would be locked onto the DJT laser pointer, and the Supremes would have to give an answer.

    All in time for the election.

Of course, there was unchecked pesticides applications all over. And, naturally, all those pesticides made their way into the rivers and creeks where the farms got their irrigation supply. And, here’s the kicker…my dad used to go down to “the slough” (slow moving water) after work to fish for the dinner we ate. No wonder there was such an unusually high rate of cancer as well as infertility in our farming community!

I’ll see what the previously frozen stuff looks like in the winter, but as the summer has gone on, it’s just not that pure orangish red that spells “salmon”.

    3. Dioxins are probably a bigger concern. Chill Rodney. The pacific is a very,very big pond. It won’t change the level of radiation above normal levels. .
      We have it all wrong with fish. We have a size limit where you can’t take a fish below a certain size. This is the exact opposite of what we should be doing. Each fish egg or fingerling has a 1 in a million chance of survival. A big fish has beaten incredible odds and proved it’s fitness to survive. Also the bigger the fish the more eggs per kilo. They are better at producing their superior genes. We should only take little fish.

        1. Yes. There is back ground radiation everywhere. X-ray techs wear film badges to monitor their dosages from stray stuff, accidental/ incidental exposure to ensure they don’t get too much. Dioxins otoh persist in the environment and travel up the food chain. The top predator gets the biggest dose.
          Slightly off topic vitamin a is vital but in large doses over a period of time can be fatal. And it’s a terrible death. Vit c is excreted via the kidneys if taken to excess. Vit is fat soluble. If too much is taken over a period of time it causes bone delamination. This is incredibly painful and debilitating.
          Scott of the Antarctic’s party were suffering from it and as they deteriorated they gave the sickest the softest meat. Ie the liver. Mistake. That’s where the vit a was congregating. All hunter gatherer societies have taboos and prohibitions about eating the livers of predators. Predators tolerate vit a because they have been predators longer than us and evolution took out the ones who couldn’t deal with it.
          There is a famous Australopithecus specimen found in africa with evidence of advanced disease. This was when we were transitioning to a more meat based diet, getting smart etc. interesting fact. She was a mother and older (for the times) like maybe 30. She would have been unable to walk or feed herself for some time but she mattered enough to someone that they cared for her, fed her, etc till her death. In group bond? Or love/compassion? IDK

  6. Manager: Trump family building ‘dynasty’ for decades to come


    INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign manager predicted Saturday that the president and his family will become “a dynasty that will last for decades,” transforming the Republican Party while hewing to conservative values.

    Speaking to a convention of Republican Party delegates in Indian Wells, California, Brad Parscale also said the campaign’s goal is to build a national army of 2 million trained volunteers, far beyond the president’s 2016 organization, that in California could help the GOP retake a string of U.S. House seats captured by Democrats last year.

    “The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades, propelling the Republican Party into a new party,” he said. “One that will adapt to changing cultures. One must continue to adapt while keeping the conservative values that we believe in.”

    Lots of interesting intel on the death of the Coroner who it turns out did work on Andrew Breitbart in Part 1, and Part 2, and Part 3 here. The Coroner had the toe tag of Breitbart, was poisoned with chemically synthesized arsenic, they threw out the stomach contents rather than test it, and they still have no idea who did it. The last article shows tweets from Breitbart that look like he was beginning to put the pieces together on the role of child-trafficking in the Cabal operational structure. Read those tweets, then think about how things ended for the DC Madam, her prostitute, Jeffrey Epstein, Epstein’s Butler, and the Detective who investigated him. Whether Breitbart was on the trail or not, I could see a guilty actor reading those tweets and thinking he was going to be a problem.

  10. Biometric Fight: Facebook Defeated on Facial Recognition, But Google, Amazon Still Pushing Ahead

    September 8, 2019
    from 21st Century Wire

    Whether you like it to or not, facial recognition is set to play an ever-growing role in people’s everyday lives. Nonetheless, the fight is now on: push-back has now begun against Silicon Valley’s global digital monopolies who seek to harvest the facial imaging data of every single user on the planet. But with seemingly endless resources and lobbying muscle, do not expect digital barons to give up on implementing a biometeric control grid.

    Last month, Facebook lost its federal appeal over its attempt to own the public’s facial recognition data. As a result, the firm is set to pay out substantial damages over its unethical privacy and business practices. This has also forced the company to halt its facial recognition photo tagging suggestion feature, now offering it on a voluntary basis only – as an ‘opt-in’ feature.

    “We conclude that the development of a face template using facial-recognition technology without consent (as alleged here) invades an individual’s private affairs and concrete interests,” said the courts following the initial ruling in early August.

  13. Our society has become so sick and fractured. What sort of human being finds it reasonable (okay) to deal in human baby parts? Beyond that, to kill viable human life in the womb? Amoral, humanistic, Luciferians—that’s who!

    The darkness in the hearts of people has become exceedingly dark and evil. Good is evil, evil is good. Light is darkness, and darkness is light. We were warned this would happen. The teaching of Scripture is clear on this!

    Are you an evolutionist, Big Bang believer? That’s your business! However, your theory centers on survival and the propagation of the species. Does killing your offspring achieve that goal? Does homosexuality or transgenderism promote the survival of the species?. I’m not standing in condemnation, just asking some very simple f**king questions! I’m sure it can be rationalized!

    Unfortunately, the secular humanistic ideology has infiltrated a major portion of our society with all its ungodliness— where it is acceptable to merchandise beating baby hearts, or sell aborted babies parts (heads only or still attached to their bodies)!!! Absolutely sick and evil!!! (Rant over!)

    1. Through your words, I can feel your frustration and can certainly relate to it, Unfortunately, this has been going on for longer than we have been aware – we just did not see it nor could we have imagined to what level it has escalated. Hidden in academia, are the roots of the destruction in which secular humanism engages.

      When a legislature applauds themselves for passing a bill that will allow infanticide, we, as Christians, cannot even mentally process an ounce of elation. When a witness admits in open court his/her organization is actively involved in selling the body parts of aborted fetuses, we are more than appalled – we are sickened. When a transgender reads stories to young, impressionable children in a public library, we cannot even imagine why this is necessary. When the school curriculum includes LGBTQ-X classes or classes in Islamic Ideology, we cannot even begin to understand for what purpose this indoctrination is acceptable without parental approval. Christians are discouraged from teaching about their beliefs on school property – let alone in the classroom – from bringing a Bible to school – or even wearing a cross necklace or pin.

      It is not a stretch to determine from where all of this debauchery comes – you hit the nail right on its head – secular humanism – Secular humanism is a philosophy or life stance that embraces human reason, ethics, and philosophical naturalism while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience, and superstition as the basis of morality and decision making. Through human reason, ethics, and philosophical naturalism, the ungodly can justify just about any abomination imaginable. Take God out of the equation – and their rationalization is just about anything they can conjure up in their minds for justification.

      However, we have not lost this fight just yet. We still have religious freedom. We still have freedom of speech. And – we still have the right to defend ourselves and our families. Perhaps, we should just stop supporting the public school system with our property taxes – after all – if we send our children to a private Christian school – we are paying double the cost to do so. We need to put on the Armor of God daily, become prayer warriors, join prayer groups, and empower our churches to assist us in the fight. We need to take our fight to the courts; the highest court in the nation, if possible. In other words, we need to keep up the fight, We cannot allow a small portion of society to dictate what we, as Christians, are allowed to do or not do. We must make our voices heard, our petitions sharp, and increase our resolve to do so.

      We know how this story ends but, we do not have sit back and let it happen before it is time. We have the power given to us by God, through His Son, to stand up and be heard. I suggest we stop accepting this philosophical naturalism and kick it to the curb. I suggest we take back our schools and write our own curriculums – otherwise – we will be forced remove our children from the system and provide for their education ourselves – in the interim – we must pray for righteous indignation and courage – and get in the fight.

    John Schulien @Johnschulien

    1) Donald Trump knows his game theory. His algorithm of choice is called Tit For Tat.

    Tit For Tat is an algorithm for playing iterative Prisoner’s Dilemma type games. In such games, in each “move” each player must decide whether to cooperate or defect. If both players cooperate, they both gain. If both players defect, neither gains. But if one player cooperates and the other defects, the one who defects picks up points over the one who cooperates.


    John Schulien @Johnschulien
    2) When playing Tit For Tat you start out by cooperating, then on each subsequent move you “respond in kind” to your opponent’s previous move. If your opponent cooperated in the last move, you cooperate. If your opponent defected, you defect.


    John Schulien @Johnschulien
    3) Playing Tit For Tat ensures that you never fall behind by more than one move, and once your opponent realizes that you are playing Tit For Tat, If they are smart they will realize that their optimal strategy is to cooperate for the rest of the game to get as many points as they can.


    John Schulien
    4) If you are important enough to be a player in the political game —

    If you publicly complement Donald Trump, he will publicly complement you back.

    If you publicly insult him, he will publicly insult you back. You might even get a nickname.

    If you make a peace offering to him, he will return the gesture. As if you were friends all along.

    And last but not least, if you launch a scorched-earth campaign of personal destruction against him or threaten his family, he will ruin your life.

    5) And he does all those things better and more effectively than you do. What he’s doing is teaching his competitors that it is much better in both the short and long run to cooperate with Donald Trump than to oppose and fight him.

    6) And now on to the Taliban. Apparently they were cooperating, and they were cooperating so well that they were on the verge of peace talks. Then at the last moment, they defected. Launched an attack in Kabul. Stabbed him in the back.

    7) Barack Obama would have probably ignored the provocation. He wouldn’t have wanted to lose the chance for a summit. And then he would have made more concessions at the summit. Just like with Iran. Donald Trump cancelled the summit, which was completely consistant with how he plays the game, and he *proved* to the Taliban that he does not play by Obama’s rules. If the Taliban wants to benefit from Donald Trump, they have to cooperate with him, not stab him in the back.

    8) He’s not cozying up to dictators. He’s *training* them. He’s making *them* change their behavior and play by his rules, which are very simple.

    9) Once the rest of the world comes to actually believe that Donald Trump is a straight shooter, and that you don’t have to fear being stabbed in the back by him, or becoming a victim of some sort of hidden agenda of his, the rest of the world will feel that they can now trust the American president, and that will be the foundation of trust that will allow President Trump to make breathtaking strides in world politics in his second term.

  15. Typical
    PJ Media:
    The proof is in the pudding, as they say. In other words, if you want to see the “competency” and “efficiency” of leftists at work, look to Illinois. Among a myriad of state-wide problems created by leftist ideology, a new report from the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General uncovered that Illinois spent at least $4.6 million between 2015 and 2017 on people who are already dead.

  16. Trump being a savvy business man realized (in my opinion) long ago that having a diverse vendor supply base for
    keeping a business afloat you Never put all your eggs I 1 basket.
    I’m referring to VSG looking for other suppliers other than China to make up for the lack of goods that only a improvised people who work for low wages.
    He knows that Chicom can be replaced if we ‘shop around’. I do feel sorry for the Chinese workers but they only have the Commies to blame.
    Thanks for another great news round up Flep. KAG!

  17. This is a bit out there but I’m doing my homework (corsos book) and I am reminded of an article I read a long while ago. An anthropologist/genetics woman worked out a gene mutation that causes the angle of a whoiwhatsit at the back of th brain to double its acuteness approx every 100,000 years. The extra astuteness multiplied the folds and wrinkles in the cerebral cortex exponentially,increasing intelligence exponentially. Sort of the difference between using a stick to get termites or two rocks to crack nuts to what we have today.This is what happened when we suddenly got big brains and serious smarts. She said it will happen again and the resulting head shape, according to computer modelling, would be very much like the big headed alien 👽.
    The irony is, wed spot it on ultrasound and abort it as disabled.

    1. We’re only using 10% of our brain capacity right now.
      So why would we need our brain size to increase?

      Perhaps in a millennia or so, we might need a ‘bigger’ brain size.
      But right now…and for the foreseeable future…we’ve already got more brain size than we use.

    1. Superglue. Harder to remove.
      A friend once got 12 inch square stickers. She used to put them over the windshield in front of the driver when she found cars without disability permits in disabled parking spots. She would then use a razor to cut the sticker to ribbons. This meant it couldn’t be pulled off in one piece-you had to pick at it for ages.
      Vindictive bitch. I approve
