Here are some shorter video clips:

What our President has and continues to do for children that are sex trafficked is absolutely breathtaking! It means the world to him and gives him, his entire family and our country something to be tremendously proud of.

The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) held a press conference yesterday to announce the successful rescue and location of 39 children from sex trafficking rings in/around the Atlanta Georgia area.

Yesterday the Stock Market finished the day with two indices in the green and one in the red.

The S&P 500 once again hit an all time high

  • S&P 500 – closed at 3,484 (ALL TIME HIGH ON AUGUST 27th)

Lets take a look at how far the other two indices are from their record highs:

DJIA – closed at 28,492 / record high 29,551 on February 12th (currently 1,059 points off the record high)

Nasdaq Composite – closed at 11,625 / record high 11,665 on August 26th (currently 40 points off the record high)

I shared this in yesterday’s news roundup but I want you to see how WRONG the so called experts were.

From the article linked above:

The U.S. Census Bureau reported new orders for manufactured durable goods soared 11.2%, or $23.2 billion to $230.7 billion in July. That’s the third straight month of strong data beating the consensus forecast and the prior month being revised higher.

Forecasts for new orders ranged from a low of 3.0% to a high of 9.1%. The consensus forecast was 4.3%, a still solid but less gain than the actual figure. New orders for durable goods were revised higher for June, from 7.3% to 7.7% at $207.5 billion.

Americans are not blind! They’re seeing with their own eyes what the BLM Movement is all about. The Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. unleashed their Monster after the death of George Floyd. Three months later, that same Monster is reeking horror in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Kenosha etc.

Any sympathy Americans may have had is going right out the window. There is absolutely nothing the Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. can do to stop it. They are trying their hardest to get the focus back on the Coronavirus. Problem for them is that the ship has sailed. Deaths continue to drop and the likelihood of another wave is dying a painful and slow death.

From the article linked above:

Support for Black Lives Matter in the key swing state of Wisconsin has plummeted from +25 approval to zero amidst the riots in Kenosha.

The city has been plagued by rioting, looting, violence and arson all week following the police killing of Jacob Blake, culminating in the Tuesday night shooting of three BLM protesters, two fatally, by a 17-year-old who acted in self-defense.

A new poll suggests that the bedlam is turning people against Black Lives Matter, and by proxy Joe Biden, who has endorsed BLM on numerous occasions.

“Democrats need to be extremely concerned about what’s happening in Wisconsin, where support for BLM has gone from +25 to +0 in 2 months,” tweeted Jonathan Chait.

He cites a newly released RPubs poll which also shows that approval for Black Lives Matter amongst whites has dropped from +22 to -5 since June.

THIS BELOW IS THE KEY POINT IN THE ARTICLE:

The poll was taken before much of the violence unfolded in Kenosha, meaning the numbers are likely even worse for BLM approval.

The poll numbers are backed up by anecdotal evidence from a New York Times article about how the violence is “already swaying some voters in Kenosha.”

The article quotes several voters who say their support for Trump has hardened because of the riots, while also highlighting how the chaos is driving Democrats away from Joe Biden.

There are many more just like this woman:

Our President is absolutely right!

Speaking of Kenosha, the garbage is being collected!

Just like in Portland, the Kenosha Monster is a gift to our President and our country! I LOVE the fact that they are now protesting in the suburban areas. Nothing will scare the Karens to death more than seeing this.

The Minneapolis Monster took advantage of a suicide to go crazy once again. Wonder how this is going to play for voters:

They were hoping to keep SleepyCreepy Joe stay in his basement through Election Day. The problem for them is that with each passing day, our President is getting stronger and stronger.

They had to wake him up for this interview. Even with a cue card, SleepyCreepy Joe showed that he is losing his mind with each passing day:

I would not be shocked if the betting odds are in our President’s favor in a week or so!

The 4th and final night of the RNC Convention was out of this world! Here is a video recap of it:

  2. An Exciting Day for Rice News!

    Brazil Looks to Temporarily Suspend Tariffs on Rice Imports

    “While Brazil is not a traditional market for U.S. rice due to pricing and the logistical and duty-free advantage provided to their neighboring countries, a potential temporary market opening timed with U.S. crop harvest could create a unique opportunity for U.S. rice to enter that market,” said Sarah Moran, USA Rice vice president of international.

    Brazil Looks to Temporarily Suspend Tariffs on Rice Imports

    From the article linked above:

    BRASILIA, BRAZIL – Following months of high domestic pricing and growing inflation and economic issues, Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture is exploring a temporary elimination of import tariffs on rice, corn, and soybeans for domestic consumption.

    Brazil is primarily a long grain market, nearly self-sufficient in rice production. While they do export some rice throughout the world, they also import about the same quantity, bringing in more than 90 percent of imports from neighboring South American countries duty-free. Rice imports from outside of the Mercosur bloc, including the United States, face a 12 percent import duty on milled rice and a 10 percent duty on paddy rice.

    Brazil annually grows more than 7 million MT of rice on a milled basis and typically imports between 600,000 and 800,000 MT to meet domestic needs. With a reduction in supply due to a smaller 2018/19 crop and increased COVID-19-related retail purchases, Brazil is in need of additional rice and other commodities to satisfy the demand and ease prices for financially strapped consumers.

    […] Moran explained: “While discussions of temporary relief from import duties are certainly welcomed, Brazil employs a number of other taxes, including on sales and services (VAT) for up to 25 percent, a freight tax at 25 percent, and an excise tax at 9.25 percent. These additional taxes make landed costs for U.S. rice up to 60 percent higher than the actual cost and add another layer of challenges.”

    More exciting rice news! Rice trade between U.S. and Taiwan!

    “Representatives of the U.S. and Taiwan rice industries plus the Agriculture and Food Agency (AFA) of Taiwan met using the Lifesize video conferencing platform last night for annual technical talks regarding rice trade between both countries.”

    5th Annual U.S.-Taiwan Rice Technical Meeting Goes Virtual
    Aug 27, 2020
    https://www.usarice.com/news-and-events/publications/usa-rice-daily/article/usa-rice-daily/2020/08/27/5th-annual-u.s.-taiwan-rice-technical-meeting-goes-virtual

    From the article linked above:

    “This was our fifth annual meeting with the industry and government in Taiwan,” said Alex Balafoutis, executive vice president at Western Foods Co., LLC, and chair of the U.S. delegation. “Taiwan has a history of cooperation and collaboration with our industry and we use these meetings to work through issues proactively concerning inspection, grading, and tendering in order to increase understanding on both sides and improve market efficiency with one of our most important customers.”

    Topics for the meeting included an exchange of information on this year’s rice production and utilization in both countries; a review of Taiwan’s rice export promotion program; follow-up from the 2019 rice grading seminar held in Taipei; changes to Taiwan’s import specifications for glutinous rice moisture levels; and discussion of Taiwan’s maximum residue limits for crop protectants used on U.S. rice.

    Both sides agreed to meet again in 2021 in Taiwan, who would have hosted this year’s meeting had it not been for COVID-19-related travel restrictions.

    Taiwan began importing rice from the United States when the island joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2007. Taiwan currently has a country-specific import quota for U.S. rice of 64,634 MT, within an overall annual import quota from all WTO members of 144,720 MT. Taiwan consumes medium grain rice, and purchases U.S.-grown rice from both the mid-South and California.

    The U.S. exported 64,464 MT of rice to Taiwan in 2019, valued at approximately $39 million.

    So check this out!!!

    > Brazil to drop tariffs on rice imports

    > Taiwan to trade rice w/ US

    > Dealing w/ Taiwan = Stick in China’s eye 😉

    MOAR WINNING!!!

      We import rice from India and associated countries for Basmati and Jasmine rice. We grow a lot of rice in the US. My favorite variety is Cal-Rose from California. Med length rice for all purpose use.

      I’m guessing MT is not “megaton” but rather Metric Ton. Otherwise we exported 64 billion tons of rice and got paid less than a tenth of a cent per ton. Which if true means that’s not trade that’s benefiting us.

    1. Long comment thread about Kyle on Power Line”About that Kenosha Shooter”. Stated there that Antioch, IL & Kenosha,WI are close and not unusual for Antioch people to be there. Antioch population is 14,000 and rural. Kenosha (about 20 miles away) about 100,000 population and urban. Rumors that Kyle was living just north of Kenosha.

      I was amazed by all the “knowledge” on Power Line comments about Kyle’s mental state, why was he there, what he was thinking, and son. All without any real information about Kyle, why he was there, and what happened. However, the consensus is that he will get off on self defense as evidenced by the videos and that he was not a vigilante.

      Seems to be a news blackout about Kyle, he’s technically a minor, and about the rioters.

        As one LEO told me.. You can’t out run the radio.”

        _____________

        Fortunately it wasn’t a radio that was ever chasing me, it was just another guy. He had been to cop school, so I’m sure he took vehicle pursuit training classes, but there was very little chance he grew up driving the way I did. He learned it as part of his job.

        I learned it because I loved it, and because it came naturally.

        Whatever is going to happen is going to happen quickly, in the space of only a few minutes, and then it will be over, one way or the other. So unless another patrol car just happens to be around the corner and can join pursuit immediately, it’ll just be him against me.

        And in my experience, a cop is more or less a known quantity. I’ve run from a lot of cops (because I was always speeding), and I never encountered a super cop when it came to driving skills. In fairness to the cops, they were usually driving something the size of a Crown Victoria, so maneuverability (and braking) wasn’t their strong point, just straight-line speed.

        Like always, he thought he could catch me, and I thought he couldn’t, and it’s the kind of thing where only one of us was going to be right.

        He wasn’t right.

        Again. 😁

    The person who took the video of the (PAID) Antifa / BLM thugs being taken into custody by the Feds and the Kenosha PD says “They [the perps] weren’t doing nothin'”. And the description of the video says the perps were only “going to feed people”. Except that the “bread truck” had tactical gear, explosives, etc., in it, obviously to be used by the (PAID) thugs. The LIE that the (PAID) thugs are some new-fangled “Robin Hood and His Merry Men” gang helping the poor, must be exposed.

    Second, UNDER the tweet and video of Ole Joe making yet another early dementia slip answering Anderson Cooper, is a tweet from Sen. Dr. RAND PAUL, date stamped 1:39AM TODAY. He and people he was with were ATTACKED by a (PAID) mob of 100 THUGS just one block from the White House. Sen. Paul thanks the DC Police “FOR LITERALLY SAVING OUR LIVES.” Click on the Kelb Hull tweet about Ole Joe above and scroll down PAST the second Kelb Hull / Ole Joe video down to the “More Tweets” section to find Sen Paul’s tweet. It’s also under the Tim Carney tweet with video — so the attack was a separate incident from the booing and infantile behavior of the (PAID) thugs as other guests exited the White House grounds.

    fifteen year argument is finally over…. We win. Most CTH readers probably don’t even remember the reason for the name: “The Last Refuge” upon this little corner of the internet. However, for well over a decade we have tried to share the truth behind the financial mechanisms that run Washington DC; and the primary machine has always been a completely corrupt, deceptive and anti-American U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    Against the entirety of the conservative media; and against the entirety of every organized group that ever attended CPAC; this website has attempted to educate people about the genuinely fraudulent purposes of the U.S. CoC and their President Tom Donohue. I have written hundreds of articles over the years outlining “there are trillions at stake” and the elements of importance behind that statement. Every single mainstream conservative voice has denied the truth; and likely most of them are probably on the CoC payroll.
