Welcome to DAVOS, Mr. President ~ Day One.

For the Biz Channels and finance geeks, Davos 2020 is the Super Bowl, and it’s the 50th Anniversary! Can’t tell you how excited I am. We will NEVER forget the first time President Trump and our team went to Davos in 2018. They looked like Olympians! We could not have been MOAR proud of our team! This will be a combination Rally Thread for Day One and background, cuz Momma is excited!

Here is the link to the President’s speech at 5:30am Eastern Time, live from Davos.

Remember what it was like in 2018?

Here is the main link to the World Economic Forum website. You can follow @wef on Twitter as well. This year’s focus is on “The Voice of Youth”. It’s a perfect opportunity for President Trump to ignore pigtail Greta, once again. https://www.weforum.org/press/2020/01/inside-davos-50th-annual-meeting-brings-world-s-best-known-digital-media-creators-to-represent-the-voice-of-youth

Where is Davos, you may ask?

Smack dab in the middle of Europe.

The region is known as Davos Klosters, kind of like two cities which run together, like Dallas/Ft.Worth. There is a large convention facility here, 34 meeting rooms, for 3000 attendees (capacity is 5000). Can’t get a hotel room no matter how hard you try or how much you spend…. and what billionaire would stay in a standard twin? If you want to wander through the facility, with a 360 degree view, take a look here: https://www.davoscongress.ch/en/

There are 235 events for the week scheduled around the official meeting from January 21st-January 24th. Can we imagine how many unofficial events will take place? And the dinner tab? Take a look at the tourism division: https://www.davos.ch/en/davos-klosters/events/ With all the ski-swooshing and ice skating, warm brandy and aperitifs, how can they get anything done? Yet, according to ABC, the hot topics will be climate change and income inequality. Yeah,…….. right. The world’s greatest collection of self-centered billionaires is worried about kids, pollution, and poor people? With what? Carbon credits to assuage their guilt? https://abcnews.go.com/Business/climate-change-economic-inequality-loom-large-powerful-descend/story?id=68403303

Billionaires arrive to Davos in jets, helos or luxury vehicles, but the sight of 3 Marine Choppers, escorted by Swiss helos, coming across the snow-tipped Alpine valley was breathtaking in 2018.

Remember the snipers on the roof of the hotel, to protect the leader of the free world?

All those patsy high-brow billionaires holding out cell phones out like they were at a Trump Rally?

And then, President Trump gave his speech……. Here it is. He warned them all.

And billionaires, scalping tickets to get into the Wilbur Ross speech?
Bwwhhahahhaaaa…… Hilarious.

Maria Bartiromo was able to interview our Wilburine in 2018. In fact, the whole Fox Biz crew is already in Davos, setting up for 2020. Maria had to leave the FOX Sunday broadcast about 48 minutes into the hour because she had the flu. Hope she is well enough to travel to Switzerland. It’s so exciting. We’ve turned the tide. America has the momentum.

Yes, 2020 is a little different than 2018. This time, President Trump and team enter the arena having beaten them all. Trump was right and they were wrong. Time for capitulation and groveling from the ruling class. President Trump’s policies were clearly the best choice, if they really cared about the environment, income inequality, and economic freedom for poor people. President Trump has delivered sweeping victories on these issues for America and the free people of the world.
AMERICANS – Kicking A$$

It took the globalists 100years of working in the shadows, 35yrs in earnest, to destroy nations, raid the peoples’ wealth, and bring the USA to it’s knees. The whole “Awakening” merely proves the lies of globalist ideology. Trump turned on the lights and woke us up.
Trump won many battles in 3years, and now we’re ready to win the war.

Do we all truly comprehend the magnitude of Phase One, and the idea of bringing China to heel? President Trump destroyed the 48yr long China public relations campaign.
In three years? We can’t possible fathom how big of a turn it was. Yet, President Trump knew. Trump did it. Despite overwhelming opposition, one world leader was determined. Our guy!
NO ONE thought that was possible.

THEY told us we had to wait. We shouldn’t “go it alone”. We needed consensus with our allies to approach “the China Problem”.


Our “allies” would have dithered like they always do, like they are STILL doing, afraid of the unruly toddler, China, who became an overly-aggressive adolescent. Who has time to wait on leaders with conflicting personal agendas? The CHINA problem was/is obvious. At this point, who would be dumb enough to vote for a Democrat in 2020 who would embrace China, rolling back the progress we’ve made? “Come on, Man”, says Biden, and Bloomberg loves China.

Out in fly-over country, we all knew better because we could see the decay from out front porches. Citizen Trump knew the USA had a problem when Japanese autos were rolling off ships into the port of LA in the 1980s. America has had a “problem” for a long time….., but we were told to get used to it. It was our “new normal”.……… and thus, our factories were idled and rusted. Bruce Springsteen sang songs about factories and idled steel mills. To Don Henley, was it the “End of the Innocence”, or was it merely bad leadership from both right and left?

Yet, let’s look at what the Trump Team did when they came into office. Aggressively and methodically, beginning immediately after inauguration, Team Trump annihilated French subsidies for AirBus at the WTO and then…. annihilated the WTO.
OMG. Did anyone at CNBC see that one coming?
And renegotiating NAFTA – Senate signing USMCA? In the SAME WEEK as Phase One with China????????

They all thought Trump was crazy/stupid/a dotard/orange/…… and they told us THEY were the experts……. because first they make fun of you, and then, they call you a racist……… right?

THEY were wrong.

THEY are back on their heels and scurrying for cover like roaches.

The mask has slipped.

President Trump is the Conor McGregor of nations, trade, finance, and war.

It was a 40 second knock out in Vegas over the weekend, stunning the crowd. (Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images)

In an historical perspective, Team Trump turned Word-Wide Trade into the WWE (world-wide economics as opposed to the World Wrestling Enterprise/Foundation). What Trump has done with trade and our economy is the equivalent to a 40 second knockout to the globalists. He proved them all wrong, leaving the pundit class, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Beijing, Brussels, Jebel Ali, all the billionaires, stunned.

Damn straight.

Daddy’s home.
Party is over.
He’s done it all and he does the things that no one else has the courage to do. President Trump is THIS GUY, the fighter, and people all over the world, LOVE IT. From France to Hong Kong, it’s time to let the people be free from the globalists’ sloppy and harmful leadership.

Protesters in Hong Kong carry pics of President Trump as a fighter. Note: it’s not a picture of Macron or Merkel.

And …..not only has President Trump/Team Trump turned around trade and our economy, he’s begun to intentionally remove well-known threats to peace, stability, and economic prosperity for the entire world, and therefore, our economy. We’ve never seen anything like this before. Amazing from a 30K foot view. Most people can understand a military defense, but we’ve never focused on an economic defense before………. Trump.

No one is talking about the overall strategy of Team Trump….. except us.

Team Trump is intentionally and swiftly alleviating the chances of “Black Swan events”. For instance, Iran mining the Straits of Hormuz would normally cause oil prices to spike and throw the American/EU economies into chaos……… but Iran’s threat to the oil economy has been muted……. because the USA is the #1 producer of oil and LNG in the world. Yes, OIL is one of the top three commodities traded by every single country in the world – Top Three. Again, America leads. We’re even exporting energy.

Don’t think it was easy to turn around the Energy sector after Obama. Recall the waste of Solyndra, and the $6,000/gallon biofuel flown to Afghanistan? Remember, we were within a “smidgen” of entering the Paris Accords, which had very little to do with our precious environment and everything to do with redistribution of American wealth. What was it President Trump tweeted to Macron, “How’s that Paris Accord working out for ya’?

For America to lead the world from a strong position, and reduce the “Black Swan” or the idea of being flanked, we had to have an economic defense. Lowering the Corporate Tax Cut was a heavy lift. Tweaking our energy policy took an all out effort on behalf of Team Trump, including new pipelines (Dakota and Keystone) and refineries, and fast-tracking the building of said refineries. We should build a statue in honor of Sec Rick Perry.

Good heavens, we’re exporting energy to EUROPE. GRASP the concept! Did anyone from the WSJ forecast that one when President Trump was elected?

Of course, WE knew what the President was doing because HE TOLD US. He was making America safer, and wealthier, again. We listened, and we were with him the whole way.

What about DPRK? A nuclear bomb in Japan or the western US coast would be the ultimate “Black Swan Event”. Past USA Presidents appeased the North Koreans, but not our guy. The pundits told us President Trump would get us into WWIII. Remember? Did anyone expect the President of the USA to walk into North Korea….. after insulting Kim on twitter? Trash-talking….. trolling…… (just like he’s doing with Iran right now?) Wonder why the pundits aren’t talking about “Little Rocket Man”, anymore? Because it worked. Trump was right. Again, the threat was neutralized. President Trump even made Japan and South Korea “Safer Again“…..

Problems in the Middle East would be a likely Black Swan Event. Yet, Trump moved the embassy to Jerusalem, called out the Intel community, reordered NATO, organized and unified the GCC, and wrap your head around it — even Israel and Saudi are working together. The pundits told us President Trump should have gone to Canada or Mexico as his first foreign trip. Remember? They thought he was stupid to go to Saudi, and they made fun of him……. and the power of the ORB.

Amazingly, like cherry-on-top for the foreign policy think tanks, AFTER ISIS was mopped up, President Trump, with all attribution to our intel community and military, removed Soleimani, over the objections of the Dems/media. The MSM told us………. again………. WW3 would break out and Trump was reckless. Shareblue collapsed on Twitter and Hollyweird was ready to move to Canada. Trudeau even blamed TRUMP when Iran shot down the Ukrainian airliner. Again, they were wrong! Now, President Trump is now laser-focused in on Iran.

What’s the over/under on the Mullahs making it to next Christmas?

At the last minute, we received President Trump’s schedule of meetings. Take a look at the highlights. MOAR winning? You think he’s not focused on Iran? Let’s say it out loud….. MAXIMUM PRESSURE.

OUR guy smoked them out, the corrupt rats, the crony politicos who only want jobs for their inept kids, and Team Trump is reworking their bad deals, all over the world.

Get ready though, because our man, Trump, can do two things at one time. The EU is on his horizon, the Allies who have been free-loading for 70yrs. President Trump forced the EU to reveal themselves, gave the people REAL HOPE AND CHANGE. You betcha, Brussels is in trouble and Merkel is looking for an exit. The EU trade deal is next on the agenda, and Britain is on our side. We all know that, right? President Trump is a like a 20 ton boulder dropped in the middle of the EU pond. BOOM!

Let’s not forget those nipping at our heels at home, those who criticize safely from the sidelines after 4 decades of inaction, those who are angry at the possibility of losing their graft or fiefdom. Consider that our President is mildly irked at the Dems impeachment parade in Congress. Once again, the President is on a world stage at Davos and the Dems are doing their best to undermine him and America. Plus, President Trump has to deal with juveniles like Macron, Trudeau, and Merkel, the puppets to the Davos Billionaire Globalists. I’m thinking, their comeuppance will occur forthwith.

Payback is hell…..

Macron knows he’s in trouble and is trying to get ahead.

Does anyone here think the execs at Google, Facebook, and Twitter will intentionally rig the election to stop Trump in 2020? It’s okay, raise your hand. It’s a common fear given the censorship we’ve all endured. Yet, the tech companies CAN’T SCREW OVER PRESIDENT TRUMP. Read the Macron tweet above again – the one about digital taxes. The EU is ready to tax the hell out of our tech companies……. and guess what? TECH NEEDS DADDY TRUMP to help them. President Trump has a hold of them by their billion dollar balls. They cannot escape the EU, and what would obviously lead to every other country in the world taxing them, without a fierce defender like TRUMP. ….. I mean, does anyone think Warren would defend Silicon Valley on a world stage? Make me laugh….

Yeah, Google is screwed. Well played, Mr. President.

Keep in mind, our President specializes in revenge. He has the wind at his back after Congressional approval of USMCA and the Phase One China Deal, President Trump will slay them them in Davos. What a glorious time to be alive! All the efforts to defeat him have failed thus far, and a lesser man would never been able to withstand the pressure. Impeachment will also fail. Fact is, if impeachment was an issue for the finance guys, the market would reflect their concern. Have you noticed? We’re hitting new highs!

“Our economy is the envy of the world.”, President Trump from Battle Creek, Michigan.

Hey, I’m no expert Art Major with a byline at Axios, I just make the blueberry muffins, but I’m thinkin’ payback and a mop-up operation is in the weather forecast for Davos…….

……… along with peace and prosperity.

Note the optics of this week, important for those who don’t follow politics and those few persuadable Independents. LAST WEEK we had Dems impeaching versus President while he delivered on China and USMCA. We had Soleimani and no Iranian war from the week before. THIS WEEK, the President at Davos will take the message of American competence and prosperity to the world.…… versus Dems focusing on impeachment. It’s Trump versus the harpies, and Trump wins on point.

The best is yet to come!

Momma is “virtually” headed to Davos, bring your sweaters and skis.

  1. Roy at Breitbart has got it figured out…
    call me Roy • 5 hours ago
    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the Gulf Stream still very warm.
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelt which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.
    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

    I must apologize.
    I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post – 96 years ago.
    This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence?

  3. Daughn, Fantastic article.

    President Trump’s speech at Davos, the first one in this article, is the perfect reply to D-Rats, talking heads and MCM when they say, President Trump is a threat. Really? A threat? In three years, President trump has totally turned America around from near total decline to broad based trajectory of success. The envy of the world. Yea, we know it. We say it. Somehow MCM, talking heads and MCM deny it, even ignore absolute success. UFB.
    AND, yesterday I was initially thinking, WTF…why delay tariffs on France, EU… Again, it was a brief, WTF? I bounced back to wait 24-48 hours and I’ll better understand President Trump’s decision. Shallow thinker I am, Google, TW, YT, FB are in a virtual headlock to NOT massively shadow ban or blatantly block conservatives in the run up to November 3rd. 😉

  4. anyone postulated yet that the New York Times endorsement of 2 candidates – very unusual – was really about promoting Amy Klobuchar by using Warren’s current popularity and coattails? How else could Klobuchar be endorsed since she is at the very low end of popular support? Why pick two? How often does the NYTs endorse in a primary? This set the NYTs against Sanders and Biden which may or may not hurt them. But it raised Amy Klobuchar profile. When the top 3 eventually fail for various reasons is Klobuchar being set up to take their place or at least be a contender? And then pick a POC VP from those who ran?

    I am watching the leftist (“MSM”) media for clues – who are they protecting? who are they not going after? who are they not asking real/hard questions? Biden seems to be the answer but I don’t think he will get the popular support in the Dem base.

    Warren is farther left (now) and so trying to give Klobuchar credibility and transfer some of Warren’s supporters to her thinking Warren won’t make it?

    Been thinking about this…not sure the answers but the NTYs primary endorsement is unusual and has given me pause for thought

    “It took the globalists 100years of working in the shadows, 35yrs in earnest, to destroy nations, raid the peoples’ wealth, and bring the USA to it’s knees. The whole “Awakening” merely proves the lies of globalist ideology. Trump turned on the lights and woke us up.
    Trump won many battles in 3years, and now we’re ready to win the war.”

    Summed it up perfectly. My husband has long said that giving up our factories and ability to manufacture was just so “unAmerican” – worse, it was a serious national security threat. The inability to make our own weapons, or maintain our industries weakened America, and while we could see the visual evidence in the decrepit, abandoned factories, and empty warehouses, the damaging effects went much deeper. As you said, where America was brought to her knees.

    You pointed out, both parties are responsible, though I’d say the Dems under Clinton, but much more so under Obama went straight to all out, masks off, no hold barred, to destroy America.

    The amazing, seemingly complex, but not really – it’s SIMPLE when each country deals honestly… is that they all can be nationalistic and successful economically. POTUS has shown how it can be done – where everyone is a winner – well, except for the truly bad people.

    Those guys we want to see lose.

      With that pretty new airport?
      I’m liking the idea, attacking the EU not just at the castle walls (UK Brexit) but a stake in the heart inside Queen Merkel’s bedchamber = Switzerland.

      I’m salivating. Flipping Pakistan is brilliant!
      Agreed, the Indians will dither forever, but if the Indians think Pakistan is on the table, they will scurry to the finish line. Nice chess move to wind up India and further denigrate the Chinese.
      Pakistan has multiple advantages, yes, yes! Motivates the Indians off of dead center, infuriates the Chinese to counter belt and road, and flips Pakistan as a partner in Afghanistan – which levels the Taliban, and Pakistan hates the Taliban.

      Agreed, sooner or later, President Trump will sit both kids down (India and Pakistan) and resolve Kashmir.

      I’m in. Let’s go. Love it.

  8. Superb President Donald J. Trump speech. Excerpt:
    “This is not a time for pessimism; this is a time for optimism. Fear and doubt is not a good thought process because this is a time for tremendous hope and joy and optimism and action.

    But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. They are the heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune-tellers — and I have them and you have them, and we all have them, and they want to see us do badly, but we don’t let that happen. They predicted an overpopulation crisis in the 1960s, mass starvation in the ’70s, and an end of oil in the 1990s. These alarmists always demand the same thing: absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.

    We will never let radical socialists destroy our economy, wreck our country, or eradicate our liberty. America will always be the proud, strong, and unyielding bastion of freedom.

    In America, we understand what the pessimists refuse to see: that a growing and vibrant market economy focused on the future lifts the human spirit and excites creativity strong enough to overcome any challenge — any challenge by far.”

    1. POTUS is telling the LEADERS to put their people FIRST
      … With the roadmap for HOW to do it.
      … And WHAT the people should look for them to DELIVER.

      No leader in history has ever been able to speak to the PEOPLE of the world like POTUS can.
      … At the same time he’s speaking with their LEADERS … on LIVE TV.
      … So the PEOPLE can measure up their LEADERS … and whether they DELIVER.

      … and ENFORCEMENT.

      “You cannot CHEAT”
      “So you’ll have to COMPETE”

      Since Global Trade transacts in DOLLARS,
      What happens when POTUS terminates Currency Manipulation?

      Countries have to SELL more to the USA
      … to get the $$$ to BUY more from others.
      But they have to BUY more from the USA
      … to keep trade RECIPROCAL.

      The more China, for example, must buy from the USA to rebalance trade,
      The less their $$$ can buy from others.
      The less others can charge in $$$ to sell elsewhere,
      The lower our “Inflation” gets,
      The further the Fed must cut Rates to “boost” Inflation.

      Good luck with THAT, Fed:

      Watch as POTUS Policies & Trade are MULTIPLYING “Overcapacity/Oversupply”

      √ ENERGY
      • USA is awash in available capacity & supply
      • 22% increase in capacity with 2 pending pipelines, per POTUS
      • This with supply bottled up in Iran and Venezuela
      • Not to mention issues with Libya and Syria
      • Plus the pending Israeli pipeline to the EU
      • USA consumers and industry can expect Energy DEFLATION

      • Massive spike in USA production pending to meet China Deal Demand
      • Add USMCA exports to Canada and Mexico
      • Then EU exports to boot.

      √ HOUSING
      • Housing boom now beginning
      • Workforce Growth will multiply housing supply
      • Blue-State Outmigration will deflate housing value

      • Deregulation & Tax Cuts now boosting supply
      • Domestic Metals Industry now cranking up plant construction
      • Forest Maintenance will open massive lands for Timber

        1. I’m so glad yer here, Bud!

          I’d like to argue that as the cost of any discrete source of energy declines, whatever gets made because of that energy mode will convey more wealth to the people, from first production to whatever lands in the recycle bin after it’s been used up.

          Carbon taxes. Tie the hands of the Invisible Hand behind its back, why dontcha?

          But I have to wonder? Doesn’t the USA have, by a large percentage, many more trees than in 1500 / 1600 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 ? Does anyone know how the forests expanded and receded thru the years?

          1. Ohio and Kentucky were almost 100% forested with monster trees in revolutionary days. It was possible to walk across Ohio in the shade. There are a few steep river valleys which still show how tall the forests were.

          2. Great thoughts, Zorrorides!

            √ Energy Cost-Reduction MULTIPLIER
            • Goods production
            • Logistics costs
            • Private and Public Transport
            • Municipal Services
            • Utilities

            √ Carbon Tax (heh heh)
            • POTUS final presser at Davos redirected Greta to go after the Big Polluter Countries
            • POTUS will no doubt Tariff those polluting and trashing our OCEANS!
            • POTUS will also Tariff those polluting our AIR!
            • He would never concede them a Cost Advantage for ZERO Environmental Protections that IMPOSES costs of REMEDIATION on the USA.

            √ NATURAL RESOURCES:
            • POTUS already has his entire Cabinet deregulating ACCESS to Federal Lands.
            • Now he’s ACCELERATING the approval process!

        2. Arguments?
          Heck no, it’s a plan!
          A blueprint!
          I’m drooling thinking about the FALLEN lumber we could take out of California, and make the state safer as well.
          And those pipelines……… will fly through the approval process.
          It’s time to be the SMART country.

    1. It’s been much enjoyable, and sanity saving to stay strictly with what’s happening in Davos.

      From what I can tell, conservative social media is having a nervous breakdown just experiencing even a glimpse of the depravity, stupidity, filthy lying, arrogance, etc. etc. of the Democrat circus being acted out in the hallowed Senate sanctorum.

      1. It is quite something to witness.

        Had to laugh today. Of course, the media has brought in all the heavyweight pundit to tell us what to think about impeachment.
        They all bought new outfits and had their hair dyed for the occasion.

        But the pundits have NOTHING to talk about. So, Brett Baier was interviewing KellyAnne Conway, and asked her if it was the WH plan to keep President Trump on the road and in spotlight, looking Presidential, while all the impeachment hearings were going on.


        Does Baier think Davos was scheduled to distract from Schiff’s antics?
        Are you kidding me?
        The pundits are not gifted.

        1. Brett Baier has deteriorated over the years, wonder if he’s on meds. Used to think he had some “conservative” principles – I was wrong.

          While we know they despise POTUS – and they appear to make it all about DJT – it’s clear that they dropped all pretense of being pro-American. That’s the veil that’s been ripped away from the MSM and their pundits.

          “Pundits are not gifted” is being charitable. 🙂

          1. Hey, you remember the first debate with Megan Kelley? Remember when Brett Baier revealed they had a PLAN, whereby if Trump became unruly during the debate, they were going to shove him back into an elevator.
            How insulting.

            1. Yes. FOX shocked me then, because we thought we’d be in for a decent, adult run presidential debate – but they never intended to do it right – it was about getting Trump.

              Interesting. Wonder if the FOX name is to be found on some of the Spygate documents/plans.
