NO DEAL – China Departs Early as Negotiations End – President Trump Fulfills Campaign Promise…

  • Giddy up… President Trump has fulfilled another campaign promise to confront China and hold firm.  As promised, three decades of Donald Trump’s intense commitment to stop the exfiltration of Amerian wealth is on display today.
  • There are going to see multiple geopolitical background moves now as the confrontation shifts to the painful phase…. who can outlast the economic standoff

  • Apparently, when the 150 page draft agreement was presented to the Chinese politburo, Beijing balked at allowing the U.S. to hold controlling enforcement over the trade agreement terms.
  • The fallback presentation from Vice-Chairman Liu was: we cannot put the binding enforcement mechanisms in writing, you’ll have to ‘trust us’ to honor the agreement; at which time Lighthizer said no-way.
  •  Lighthizer and Trump are not only fighting China, they are fighting U.S. politicians who are beneficiaries of China. They are also fighting against the U.S. CoC, the multinational corporations, Wall Street and members of both political parties who desperately want to stop any trade balance reset.
  • Almost half, perhaps more than half, of congress has a better financial self-interest if China can gain economic superiority over the United States.   This congressional hearing, and the severity of Lighthizer toward those purchased politicians, highlights this very tenuous internal challenge.
  • Stop and think about this again.
  • The U.S. economic, trade and manufacturing system is so structurally broken, after three decades of severe corruption by corporate financial interests: Almost half, perhaps more than half, of congress has a better financial self-interest if China can gain economic superiority over the United States.
  • The free market is not determining price; there is no “supply and demand” influence within this modern agricultural dynamic. Food commodities are now a controlled market just like durable goods. The raw material (harvests writ large) are exploited by the financial interests of massive multinational corporations.
  • This is a paradigm shift Trump understands must take place in order to accomplish the long-term goals for the U.S. citizen/worker as it relates to “entitlements” or “structural benefits”.


China’s Growth would Drop this much after New Tariffs

  • China’s growth could drop 0.3 percentage points or more after the additional tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese goods becomes effective,


  •  China Car Sales for the world’s largest auto market continue to deteriorate, with the latest report confirming that passenger vehicle sales in China tanked yet again – this time dropping 16.6% year-over-year to 1.54 million units, following a 12% decline in March and an 18.5% slide in February. In addition, April SUV sales fell 14.7% to 642,220 units.

  •   sales have declined for a record 11 months in a row.


Trump vs. the Fed: What it means for your money

  • In the ongoing battle between President Donald Trump and the Federal Reserve over interest rates, it’s consumers that are caught in the middle.
  •  central banks normally tighten policy in an effort to control prices when the economy is expanding. That’s why rising rates are generally considered an indication that the economy is doing well and pave the way for pay raises and a better return on savings, despite the impact on borrowing costs.

How a Fed rate hike affects you

Now, in his latest attack, Trump raised the stakes by calling for the central bank to cut interest rates by 1 percentage point.

  • Credit card users
  • Most credit cards have a variable rate, which means there’s a direct connection to the Fed’s benchmark rate.For example, every time the Fed raises rates by a quarter point, you’ll pay an extra $2.50 a year for every $1,000 of debt, which takes effect within one to two billing cycles.Rate cuts, however, don’t work exactly the same way, to the detriment of consumers. “There’s a lag,” McBride said.“If you look at credit card agreements, the language they use allows them to use the highest prime rate as of the last 60 days. It gives them latitude to quickly pass on a rate hike but drag their feet on a rate cut.”
  • Homebuyers
    For example, for every quarter-point drop in rate on a $100,000 balance, the borrower is going to save about $21 a month, according to TD Bank.
  • Car shoppers
  • For those planning on purchasing a new car in the next few months, any rate move – up or down – likely will not have any material effect on what vehicle you drive off the lot.A quarter-point difference on a $25,000 loan is $3 a month,
  • Student borrowers
  • Federal student loan rates are fixed, so most borrowers are not immediately affected by a rate move.



Roger Stone Questions DOJ on Predicate of Russia DNC Hack…

  • In two separate court filings Roger Stone is challenging the DOJ to produce evidence of their predicate claim the Russians “hacked” the DNC servers.
  • Discovery its beautiful thing, The first filing is a motion to compel [SEE HERE] and requests the DOJ provide unredacted documents to support their framework of evidence that Russian’s “hacked” the DNC.  The second filing is a motion to suppress [SEE HERE] any downstream evidence, extracted by the use of search warrants, built upon upon the predicate claim of Russians “hacking” the DNC.
  • In essence Roger Stone is challenging the U.S. government to prove the DNC was hacked by Russians; and further he is refuting the validity of the FBI using a private organization, Crowdstrike, as a valid investigative and determinative body.
  • If the DOJ and FBI are independently certain Russian’s hacked the DNC servers, there should be no issue in providing the evidence toward that claim. It will be interesting to see how the DOJ responds; and how the judge rules on the responsibilities of the FBI.

Judicial Watch Files Ethics Complaint Over Rep. Adam Schiff’s Contacts with Glenn Simpson and Michael Cohen

  • Judicial Watch announced today that it filed an official complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics about Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) controversial communications and contacts with two congressional witnesses: Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS and Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer.
  • The complaint asks that Rep. Schiff, who is the new chairman of the House Intelligence Community, be investigated in connection with recent revelations that he met with Simpson in Aspen, Colorado, in July 2018 and that he and his staff coordinated with Michael Cohen on Cohen’s recent testimony to congressional committees. Cohen’s testimony is alleged to be false in several important respects.
  • Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint on April 13, 2018, against Rep. Schiff and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) for improperly confirming classified information in violation of House rules but the Committee has yet to take any public action on the complaint.
  • “Rep. Schiff has an ethics problem. His and his staff’s irregular communications with anti-Trump witnesses reflect poorly on the credibility of the House and its committees’ investigations,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It has long been apparent that Rep. Schiff can’t be trusted to lead the Intelligence Committee, so we hope that Democrats on the Ethics Committee stop protecting Mr. Schiff and take action.”


Now it seems Comey is getting caught up in his own lies,

James Comey Contradicts His Own Memo on Trump Oval Office Meeting

  • At a town hall event broadcast on CNN last Thursday, Comey recounted the alleged details of a February 8, 2017 meeting inside the Oval Office.
  • He stated:

And so the next time I was alone with him, and he told something that was obviously false, which was very, very important, he was saying in the Oval Office — a torrent of words coming at me. I remember the day, February 8th of 2017, a torrent of words. And among the words were his saying, “We are the same kind of killers that Vladimir Putin is.” He was defending his moral equivalency between us and Putin.

And I interrupted and said, Mr. President, no, we’re not the kind of killers that Putin is. And when I said that, a shadow crossed the president’s face, and the meeting was over, because I just popped that cocoon he was trying to draw around us. And so I knew at that point, I went back to the FBI, and said my relationship with this man is over, and that’s not a bad thing.

  • Comey clearly stated that he was “alone” with Trump in the Oval Office during that meeting and that “the meeting was over” because Comey seemed to criticize something the president said. “And the meeting was over, because I just popped that cocoon he was trying to draw around us,” Comey claimed.
  • In his memos on that same February 8 meeting, however, Comey says that he was not alone but met Trump along with Reince Priebus, who served at the time as White House Chief of Staff.
  • “Reince stayed,” Comey wrote in the relevant memo. “Seated to my right as I sat in a chair facing the President,” he said, referring to Priebus.
  • Comey never wrote in the memo that he was alone with Trump, and does not describe Priebus as leaving the February 8 meeting at any time. In fact, he wrote that Priebus “tried to interject” about another matter just one paragraph before Comey describes the conversation about the Putin remarks that he talked about on CNN.


JUDICIAL WATCH: New Records Reveal Obama White House Paranoid, Tracking FOIA Request For Hillary Clinton Emails

  •  Judicial Watch on Friday announced it obtained 44 pages of State Department records through a court-ordered discovery that revealed the Obama White House was paranoid and tracking a December 2012 FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request seeking documents on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server system (shortly after the Benghazi terror attack).
  •   in January a federal court ordered discovery on Hillary Clinton’s emails and Benghazi scandal.
  • Judge Royce Lamberth ordered top Obama and Hillary officials such as Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and other State and FBI officials to answer Judicial Watch’s questions under oath.
  • Judge Lamberth said Hillary Clinton’s private email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
  • Via Judicial Watch:

In a December 20, 2012, email with the subject line “Need to track down a FOIA request from CREW”, Sheryl L. Walter, director of the State Department’s Office of Information Programs and Services (A/GIS/IPS), writes to IPS officials Rosemary D. Reid and Patrick D. Scholl and their assistants:

WH called – have we received a FOIA request from CREW (Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington) on the topic of personal use of email by senior officials? Apparently other agencies have. If we have it, can you give me the details so I can call the WH back? I think they’d like it on quick turnaround. Thanks! Sheryl

In the same email chain, Walter on December 20, 2012 also emailed Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s White House liaison, describing the CREW FOIA request:

Hi Heather – Copy attached, it was in our significant weekly FOIA report that we send to L and S/ES also. Do you want us to add you to that list? It’s a subset of things like this that we think likely to be of broader Department interest. More detail below re this request. As a practical matter given our workload, it won’t be processed for some months. Let me know if there are any particular sensitivities. If we don’t talk later, happy holidays! All the best, Sheryl

Sheryl: The request is assigned Case #F-2012-40981. It was received on 12/6/2012 and acknowledged on 12/10/2012. The request is assigned for processing.

On January 10, 2013, Walter writes to Samuelson that she is not including “personal” accounts in the FOIA request search:

Hi Heather – did you ever get any intell re what other agencies are doing re this FOIA request that seeks records about the number of email accounts associated with the Secretary (but isn’t specifying “personal” email accounts so we are interpreting as official accounts only). We are considering contacting the requester to find out exactly what it is they are looking for. Do you have any-concerns about that approach?

Soon afterward, Samuelson responds, “White House Counsel was looking into this for me. I will circle back with them now to see if they have further guidance.”

  • “These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “A federal court granted Judicial Watch discovery into the Clinton emails because the court wanted answers about a government cover-up of the Clinton emails. And now we have answers because it looks like the Obama White House orchestrated the Clinton email cover-up.”

Former Deep State FBI Lawyer and Alleged Leaker James Baker Says He is “Nervous” About Upcoming DOJ Inspector General Report

  • The DS players are all trying to go on record before the Inspector General’s report drops.
  • House Republicans revealed in a letter earlier this year that James Baker is under criminal investigation for leaks.


Former FBI General Counsel James Baker admitted on Friday that he is “nervous” about DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into the conduct of the DOJ and the FBI during the Trump-Russia probe.

Sitting down with with Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes in a crowded room at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Baker said he is “assuming that they will dig and find stuff” and that “we’ll try to sort it out and see what mistakes were made.” But Baker defended the FBI’s actions, including its use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Horowitz’s investigation is particularly focused on alleged FISA abuse and the reliance on British ex-spy Christopher Steele in FISA applications targeting Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

BREAKING: Lindsey Graham Requests Interview with State Dept.’s Kathleen Kevalac Who Flagged Junk Steele Report 10 Days Before FISA Warrant Request

  • On Friday Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham sent letters to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the DOJ asking for information on communications between Kathleen Kavalec and Christopher Steele .
  • Lindsey Graham also asked Secretary of State Pompeo to make Ms. Kavelec available for a transcribed interview.
    Via Free Republic:

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today sent letters to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz regarding communications between a State Department official and Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier used to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to surveil Trump campaign officials.

It was recently revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request that Steele met with then-State Department official Kathleen Kavalec ten days prior to the issuance of the initial Carter Page FISA warrant and told her that he was “keen to see this information [the dossier] come to light prior to November 8,” the date of the 2016 presidential election.

“This important information further demonstrates the bias of the primary source of material that was the basis for the Carter Page FISA warrant,” Graham wrote.

Chairman Graham requested:

  • All documents and communications on or after May 1, 2016 between State Department and DOJ employees or officials relating to Christopher Steele, the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, or anyone associated with the Trump campaign.
  • The State Department make Ms. Kavalec available for a transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee.
  • DOJ Inspector General Horowitz consider this new information as he continues to investigate potential FISA warrant abuse.


Trump Administration to Crack Down on Illegals in Public Housing – Only Families where ALL MEMBERS are Citizens or Legal Residents will Qualify

  • Illegals will no longer qualify for free housing paid for by American taxpayers.
  • Director Ben Carson (HUD website)
  • FOX News reported:

The Trump administration on Friday moved forward with a proposed rule to make it harder for illegal immigrants to access federally subsidized housing — the latest crackdown by the administration on immigrants who use public assistance.

The rule, proposed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and posted in the Federal Register, would require that those seeking public housing would be subject to verification of their immigration status. Only families in which every member is either a citizen or a legal resident would qualify for federally subsidized housing. Currently families where at least one person is either a citizen or green card holder can get federal assistance, even if other family members are not.
