Bits and Pieces – 20180306, Tuesday

Commentary: If Trump continues, trade wars will be the start of the end ushering in the collapse of most markets and pricking the debt bubble. This is serious stuff. Be sure to see the 19 second video of our Rime Minister in the next section.

Bits and Pieces – 20170124, Tuesday

Commentary: If Trump achieves half or maybe a quarter of what he wants to he will go down as a “great” American president. I suspect a significant piece of what he would want is impossible, not because of political obstacles but because some things will not be possible.

A lot of jobs that went offshore don’t exist anymore and can’t come back. Companies on-shoring will build new plants populated with robots and highly automated assembly lines. They would have done so anyway for economic reasons and this trend had started before Trump.

His trade policies may backfire. Raising tax barriers and tariff walls will start trade wars – may already have done so – so the imports will be cut but so will the exports. How this will affect the balance of trade is a question. In fact the trade deficits were the only way the US dollar could become the world reserve currency. Trump cannot control the currency – at least not for long. Any attempt to declare China a currency manipulator will lead to the depreciation of the yuan and strengthen the dollar, affecting exports and negating the effect of tariffs on imports.

He has a deeply divided country and he can’t fix this because the divide is to a large part caused by people who hate him and this he can’t change. Read: Trump: America for the Americans! He has inherited trillion dollar deficits and a 20 trillion dollar debt that goes as high as 200 trillion with unfunded liabilities included. The only fix for this is to press the reset button and the reset will be global.

This is going to be a wild ride.

What We’re Reading Today

Civil Unrest: Look for more when we have such advocates as Micheal Moore: Michael Moore Urges Civil Disobedience At Trump’s Inauguration, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Lot Worse”.

Fake News and Propaganda: Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law. Keeping you up to date: Mainstream Media Is Now Whining About The “Fake News” Hysteria It Created.

Trump: Recall that leading up to the Brexit vote, the establishment was flooding the media with dire predictions of economic collapse and social armageddon. And then none of it happened. The Trump phenomenon has remarkable parallels to Brexit including the post-Trump effects such as Trump Brings Consumer Confidence to 13 Year High.

Russia: Obama seems bent on doing as much damage as he can, while he can: Obama Set To Announce Economic Sanctions And “Covert Cyber Ops” Against Russia For “Election Hacking”. And then he pulls the trigger: US Retaliates Against Russia For “Hacking The Election”: Expels 35 Diplomats, Unveils Sanctions with the response: Russia Warns Of “Proportional Response” To Obama’s “Paranoia”.

Bits and Pieces: Here’s an article on Obama’s exit, stage left (an appropriate metaphor): A Loser’s Malice: What’s Behind Obama’s Attacks On Putin.

This we include simply because it’s interesting – North American retail destinations by age: At What Age Do You Outgrow IKEA?.

Concerning US assets in Syria: Russia: Mass Graves Full Of Tortured Civilians Discovered In Aleppo. Imagine if the US had used something other than “moderate” rebels. By the way, have you seen this reported in the MSM?

Belatedly, we publish this essay from Paul Merkley: FAREWELL TO OSLO. Paul raises th4 issue of the extermination of Middle east Christians.He also discusses the Palestinian issue and the two state proposal.

Finally, a target for Trudeau to aspire to and with his world traveling under the guise of diplomacy, he’s well under way: Obama’s Vacation Costs Expected To Top $90 Million Over 8 Years.

SUNNY WAYS: THE TRUDEAU LEGACY IN FOREIGN POLICY.

In a bit of a catch-up here is a new essay by Paul Merkley. We present this essay reprinted by permission of Paul and from The Bayview Review. See the links at the end for direct access to the rest of Paul’s work.

After we have seen a few months of Mr. Trudeau’s foreign policy in action we will be in position to judge to what extent it really does diverge from the policy in effect over the last nine years or so – as everyone seems to assume that it will. However, no grown-up person imagines that by then our foreign policy will really have evolved into the “sunny ways” that Mr. Trudeau remembers as characterizing the policies of his father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau (Prime Minister 1967-1979, 1980-1984.)
