...and the bad news is?


Oh I don't know how about the President of the USA ( that would be Trump believe it or not ) being accused of not ONE but TWO Felonies

 

See Trump started his Twitter Tirade way before the rest of us got to see the heavily redacted but revealing enough - Sentencing Memos from Mueller on both Manafort & Cohen

 

Trump already knew what was coming cuz he's got his little snitch Whitaker as acting AG

to give him the full unredacted versions

If one looks at the history of tariffs and the resulting trade wars, they always made the problem far worse as opposed to better. Tariffs do not work!

 

For years I used to hear "Trade wars don't work", but never heard a good explanation as to why.

Since the trade war with China began, I'm starting to believe it's a lot more complicated than I imagined. On paper, Trump seemed to make sense. China had more to lose than the U.S. since the imbalance currently is in their favor. Tariffs would make sense. 

I can see the Chinese people uniting in not buying American products, more than I can see Americans doing the same. Besides, it appears that "American brands" are mostly made in China, anyway.

 

I watched two episodes of "Crouching Tiger" on Youtube. It is narrated by Peter Navarro. It's a total of 5 episodes about 40 minutes each. I may watch the other 3 episodes later, but to me, it seemd like a lot of fear mongering. The first two episodes were strictly about the mighty China military. I'm hoping they cover the economy on the other episodes.

The headline from Mick's link ..

U.S. economy adds 155,000 jobs in November, below expectations. Unemployment rate was 3.7 percent.

That is good news....for most.

I think the story of Huawei's CEO Meng being arrested and, as they say, will be extradited to the U.S., is a very big story.

There must be more to it than only selling Huawei phones to Iran. Supposedly, Huawei signed an agreement with the U.S. not to sell their phones to Iran. Components inside their phones are considered U.S. components.

Huawei phones, by and large, are not sold in the U.S., so we don't have much leverage there.

 

The biggest question is - what will China do? Retaliate? If so, retaliate how? Arrest some of the many American CEOs who live and work for American companies in China? 

If China begins arresting American CEOs in China, this could eventually lead to American companies leaving China, in which case Trump wins (sort of). 

China seems to be very good at practicing restraint, but maybe not with Meng in prison.

I heard one charge against Meng might be some sort of bank fraud. 

 

Is it possible the arrest of Meng was done to get China to compromise on Trump's trade deal? Imagine that. That would make it blackmail. A form of legal kidnapping. Trump wouldn't be that crazy. Or would he? 

 

I thought I heard Canada's Trudeau seem to distance himself from the arrest. He said it was done by local authorities. I think it was in Vancouver. I don't think Canada wants a trade war with China, which could happen now, especially if they extradict Meng to the U.S.

China is not only angry over this, but Xi Jinping may feel he has to do something just to save face in the eyes of the Chinese people.

This whole incident could have huge consequences.
