Current News – 02.16.2018


Economy

  • Update 3:“[T]he opening shot in a trade war… a declaration of war against the world on aluminum and steel… These are some of our closest treaty allies… These are some serious numbers.”
  • And another quote from a trade expert: “This would be beyond a trade war. You’re talking about blowing up the WTO.”
  • As the Commerce Dept’s press release adds:

the reports are currently under consideration by the President, and no final decisions have been made with regard to their contents. The President may take a range of actions, or no action, based on the analysis and recommendations provided in the reports. Action could include making modifications to the courses of action proposed, such as adjusting percentages.

  • The President is required to make a decision on the steel recommendations by April 11, 2018, and on the aluminum recommendations by April 19, 2018.
  •  
  • On steel the options include: a global tariff of at least 24% on all steel imports from all nations; tariff of at least 53% on all steel imports from 12 nations with a quota by product for all steel products from all countries equal to 100% of their 2017 exports to U.S.; quota on all steel products from all nations equal to 63% of 2017 exports
  • On aluminum the options include: tariff of at least 7.7% on all aluminum exports from all countries; 23.6% tariff on all products from key nations; quota on all imports from countries equal to maximum of 86.7% of 2017 exports

  • And the last time Americans were this confident of “retiring comfortably”, markets crashed…

    • China will list local-currency crude futures in Shanghai on March 26, according to the nation’s securities regulator.
    • While some details of the contract such as the size (1,000 barrels per lot) and grades have been released, other information like the delivery depots for the crude are yet to be announced.
    • China surpassed the U.S. as the world’s biggest oil importer last year, buying about 8.43 million barrels a day to feed demand from government-run as well as independent refiners.

 

  • If the futures are embraced by overseas investors and become a benchmark for global oil transactions, China’s hoping the yuan could challenge the dominance of the greenback in international trade.

“It will be just a baby step ­towards gaining pricing power in crude oil,” s

  • As Pepe Escobar recently noted, ‘to overcome the excessive domination of the limited number of reserve currencies’ is the politest way of stating what the BRICS have been discussing for years now; how to bypass the US dollar, as well as the petrodollar.
  •  . This means that Russia – as well as Iran, the other key node of Eurasia integration may bypass US sanctions by trading energy in their own currencies, or in yuan. Inbuilt in the move is a true Chinese win-win; the yuan – according to some – will be fully convertible into gold on both the Shanghai and Hong Kong exchanges.
  • The new triad of oil, yuan and gold is actually a win-win-win. No problem at all if energy providers prefer to be paid in physical gold instead of yuan. The key message is the US dollar being bypassed.
  • However, not everyone is so sure of the petroyuan contracts’ game-changer-ness, as MishTalk’s Mike Shedlock suggests, it is meaningless what oil is priced in. It makes no difference, outside of something illiquid like Yap Island stones, what any commodity is priced in. Conversion is instantaneous. But even Mish is not positive on the survival of the petrodollar:

Is this end of the petro-dollar in the Mideast? Actually, yes. But the Yuan has nothing to do with it.

If the US no longer runs trade deficits with the Mideast, they no longer need to accumulate US dollar reserves.

China is now the biggest importer of crude in the world. If China starts running perpetual trade deficits with OPEC countries, it makes sense for OPEC to hold Yuan reserves as long as the OPEC countries trust the yuan.

Robert Mueller charges Russian ‘troll farm’ with election interference

  • Twelve of the defendants were allegedly employed by the Internet Research Agency, a “troll farm” funded by the Russian government for disinformation efforts. “Defendants, posing as US persons and creating false US personas, operated social media pages and groups designed to attract US audiences,” the indictment reads. “They engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.”
  •   the punchline,which appears to have absolved the Trump administration of the collusion narrative that has dominated for over a year, was the following statement from the deputy AG:“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the [Russians’] conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”c:
  • U.S. DEPUTY AG ROSENSTEIN SAYS AFTER THE ELECTION, RUSSIANS STAGED RALLIES BOTH TO SUPPORT AND TO OPPOSE TRUMP
  • To summarize: in 2014, 13 Russians launched a campaign to interfere with the US political system by “disparaging” candidates. This continued until ultimately Trump was elected, meanwhile,there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the [Russians’] conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

    Three defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.

    Five defendants are charged with aggravated identity theft.

  •   Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton remarked that the fabricated dossier “is central to the Russian collussion theory” and that there are reports now that President Barack Obama “was given the dossier.”
  • Now we need to ask, said Fitton, “What did he [Obama] know and why hasn’t he been questioned about it?”
  • Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton said, “We sued for them, and there are these is dueling memos. Democrats will have their memo eventually come out. Why is it we’re relying on this summary document? Let’s get the underlying information. I know Nunes has asked for it. We’ve sued in court for it.
  • “I told the White House that they should take this approach of extreme transparency on Russia-gate. It does nothing to protect the president from this illicit activity against him and it protects people like Barack Obama and Justice Department and FBI that was misused to target President Trump.”

More MSM Fake News: No, there have not been 18 school shootings so far in 2018

  •  , the media has been trying to convince you that these types of shootings where there are mass casualties are happening every day.It all began on Wednesday when reporting on the developments at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, MSNBC host Brian Williams said that this was the 12th school shooting of 2018.Ever since then, the talking point was corrected in that there were actually 18 school shootings in 45 days. And many in both the media and politics have used it as a rallying cry to make some legislative push to impose new restrictions on guns.The problem is that it’s not accurate. There haven’t been 18 of what we would refer to as “school shootings” in 2018. The media is  deliberately moving the goalposts and widening the definition of what constitutes a school shooting.Of the 18 school shootings as listed by the pro-gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, here’s what actually happened in each of these cases:

1) A man committed suicide using a gun in an elementary school parking lot when the school was closed and there were no children present in Clinton County, Mich., on Jan. 3.

2) Shots were fired at New Start High School near Burien, Wash., on Jan. 4. No one was hurt or injured, and no suspects were apprehended.

3) A 32-year-old man shot a pellet gun at a school bus, shattering a window, in Forest City, Iowa, on Jan. 6. No injuries were reported, and the suspect was apprehended.

4) A Grayson College student confused a real gun with a training gun and accidentally fired a bullet into a wall on Jan. 10. No injuries were reported.

5) A 14-year-old seventh-grade student shot and killed himself inside the bathroom of Coronado Elementary School in Cochise County, Ariz., on Jan. 10.

6) Gunshots were fired at a campus building at Cal State San Bernardino on Jan. 10. No injuries were reported.

7) Two people in a car exchanged gunfire at a Wiley College dorm parking lot on Jan. 15. No deaths or injuries were reported and no suspects were arrested, however, one bullet was fired into a dorm room with three female students inside.

8) A Winston-Salem State University football player was shot and killed at a sorority party following an argument in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Jan. 20.

9) A 16-year-old male student shot a 15-year-old female student in the cafeteria at Italy High School in Italy, Texas, on Jan. 22. While the victim was injured, she was expected to make a full recovery. The shooter was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. This one we would probably all refer to as a proper “school shooting.”

10) An unknown assailant in a pickup truck drove by the NET Charter High School in Gentilly, La., and shot at a group of students on Jan. 22. A 14-year-old boy was initially thought to have suffered a gunshot graze, but it turned out to be an abrasion.

11) A 15-year-old male student shot and killed two students and wounded 18 others at Marshall County High School in Benton, Ky., on Jan. 23. The shooter was apprehended.

12) A 16-year-old student fired a gun at another 16-year-old student during an altercation at Murphy High School in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 25. No injuries were reported and the suspect was taken into custody.

13) Shots were fired in the parking lot during an altercation between two nonstudents during a basketball at Dearborn High School in Dearborn, Mich., on Jan. 26. No injuries were reported, and no suspects were arrested.

14) A 32-year-old man was shot and killed in the parking lot outside Lincoln High School in Philadelphia, Penn., on Jan. 31 during what police believed to be an altercation between students from rival schools. No suspects were arrested.

15) A 12-year-old female student accidentally fired a real gun thinking it was a fake gun. Four students were injured, including one who suffered a gunshot wound to the head, at Sal Castro Middle School in Los Angeles on Feb. 1. The 12-year-old girl was taken into custody.

16) A teenage boy was shot in the chest and nearly killed by another student who conspired with the boy’s ex-girlfriend in the parking lot of Oxon Hill High School in Oxon Hill, Md., on Feb. 5. The suspect was taken into custody and charged with attempted murder.

17) A third-grade student pulled the trigger of a police officer’s holstered weapon at the Harmony Learning Center in Maplewood, Minn., on Feb. 5. No injuries were reported.

18) A 17-year-old student was arrested after firing a gun into the floor of a classroom of Metropolitan High School in the Bronx, N.Y., on Feb. 8.

19) The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Wednesday that left 17 dead.

  • Now, you’ll notice that there are 19 shooting incidents listed above, not 18 like the media were trying to make you believe. That’s because the third incident on the list involving a pellet gun and a school bus has at least been ruled out as a “school shooting,”  But frankly, most of the incidents above – probably at least 14 of them, don’t really qualify as what we think of as “school shootings” at all.And of all the shootings listed above, only two qualify as mass school shootings – the one in Benton, Ky., and the shooting in Parkland this week.

FBI caught in Florida school shooter YouTube lie (Video)

  • FBI on Cruz YouTube threat: “Could not confirm it was same person”
  • The FBI said they could not identify “Nikolas Cruz” on a YouTube comment thread.
  • During a Thursday morning briefing on the shooting events, the local FBI chief made comments on the YouTube threat shooter Nikolas Cruz made online in 2017.
  • Nikolas Cruz, the suspect in Wednesday’s horrific massacre at a Florida high school, was allegedly reported to the FBI in September after he left a comment on a bail bondsman’s YouTube channel saying that he was going to be a “professional school shooter.”

 

  • FBI chief Robert F. Lasky was asked about the YouTube threat by reporters…

“We do not know if it was the same person. We, through our database checks, we could not positively identify him. We’re going back. We’re scrubbing the information. We’re looking at it again. I am not willing to say at this time that it was the same person.”

  • The YouTube comment was posted by “Nikolas Cruz” – spelled with a ‘K”. The FBI says they did not know if it was the same person?

  • Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin called on Congress Thursday to address issues related to gun violence less than 24 hours after 17 people were murdered in a Florida school shooting.

  • I will say, personally, I think the gun violence its a tragedy what weve seen yesterday, and I urge Congress to look at these issues,” said Mnuchin, while addressing a question from Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing about whether Trump’s new budget addressed gun violence. 

 

  • We protect: politicians, celebrities, the rich, diplomats, courthouses, jails, college campuses, stadiums, airports…and on and on with GUNS, but leave our most vulnerable unprotected. Anyone else see a problem with this hypocrisy
