  • Trump Returning To US With Over $250 Billion In Deals, China Announces ‘This Is Truly A Miracle’

    11/13/2017 3:43:17 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 15 replies
    President Donald Trump announced Thursday roughly $250 billion in deals between American businesses and China. On his final day in Beijing, Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping oversaw a ceremony in which corporate giants such as Boeing and Qualcomm signed multibillion-dollar deals. “This is truly a miracle,” China’s Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said at a news briefing in Beijing. Trump said Thursday he was looking forward to a change in the U.S.-China relationship. “Discussing trade … knowing that the United States really has to change its policies because they’ve gotten so far behind on trade with China and frankly with...

    Since President Donald J. Trump took office on January 20th, almost 3,100 merger or acquisition (M&A) deals have been announced, per recently released data from Thomson Reuters. 2017 continues to be the art of the deal as there have already been 13 deals valued at over $5 billion dollars since the Trump administration took charge. Cross-border deals are also at record highs. As the mainstream media continues to decry the mounting political and economic uncertainty around the world as a result of the hard-to-predict Trump administration, the global economy centered around the vibrant U.S. market appears to be doing just...

    The FBI’s agreement to pay the author of the unsubstantiated dossier on Donald Trump while he was working for an opposition research firm tied to Hillary Clinton raises questions about the bureau’s “independence from politics,” the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is claiming. In a letter sent to FBI director James Comey on Monday, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley asked for more detail about revelations made in a Washington Post article last week about an agreement the FBI made with Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier and a former MI6 agent. The Post reported that the FBI agreed in...

    President Trump has often said that Barack Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran was a “terrible deal.” He’s right. But whatever he decides to do about it, the opposition is apparent and will only grow both here and abroad. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s “supreme leader,” said he would set the agreement on fire if Mr. Trump tried to change it. Iranian President Rouhani said his nation won’t let Mr. Trump change the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the Obama deal is formally known. Any proposal to renegotiate or cancel the deal won’t receive warmer receptions from Russia, China, England,...

    Ralph Lauren announced Monday it would not renew its sponsorship contract with Ryan Lochte, becoming the second company to drop the U.S. Olympic swimmer in the wake of his scandal in Rio de Janeiro. Earlier Monday, Speedo USA executives said the company would drop its sponsorship of Lochte and donate $50,000 to charity. In Ralph Lauren's case, the company stated its contract with Lochte was for the 2016 Rio Olympics only, and would not be renewed. "Ralph Lauren continues to sponsor the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team and the values that its athletes embody."

    Hillary tapes reveal she voluntarily defended a child rapist that she knew was guilty. In this 1980's taped interview, Hillary Clinton laughed about getting the convicted rapist of a 12 year old child off on a technicality. Hillary got him off with time served in county jail, about 2 months. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge."

    For the past year, one political power player after another has tried to negotiate with Donald Trump, and gotten bitten for the effort. Yet, like lemmings, each successive figure stepped up to meet the same fate, convinced despite all available evidence that gravity would give them a better deal. These movers and shakers seemed to think they could control Trump, and attempted to reach a bargain with the man who wrote The Art of the Deal. It did not end well for any of them. Ted Cruz bent over backward to avoid criticizing Trump, in hopes that the billionaire's campaign...

    There is no such thing as bipartisanship anymore. Bipartisanship has come to mean one thing: The Democrats get what they want. And we're fed up, and we're certainly not happy and thrilled to hear that that is a resume enhancement for electability. He said it. "I can reach across the aisle, and I can work with the Democrats." Yeah, we know that. And what do you ever get for it? What does the Republican Party get for all of your working with the Democrats? Versus what do they get. They're going to get their global warming deal. They're going to...

    Moammar Gadhafi’s death is not enough for Donald Trump, who says the United States did not get enough for the kill. On his YouTube page on Thursday, the one-time prospective Republican presidential candidate said, “So the reports are that we caught Gadhafi. Big deal. What do we get out of it? They have the oil. The rebels would have given us everything if we had some leader that knew how to negotiate. The rebels were being routed four months ago — absolutely routed by Gadhafi and his men.” Trump went on to lament the outcome as a missed opportunity and...

    The currently considered TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade deal has the potential to be the fulcrum under every plank in the 2016 presidential election. Many people view immigration as the #1 concern underlying further economic issues – however, few people recognize that immigration is actually part of the TPP construct. Globalists, via Wall Street international financiers, are determined to get TPP passed into law. Few of the GOP candidates stand in the way; Donald Trump is the primary roadblock to the current globalist goals.

    The New York Times previews Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s upcoming e-book Bush Bucks, an investigation of crony capitalism revolving around Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. From the New York Times: Since announcing his presidential candidacy in June, Jeb Bush has made clear his distaste for officials who trade on their connections. He has assailed the revolving-door culture of Washington, calling for “a little bit of a recession” there to thin the ranks of the permanent political class. He has proposed a strict six-year ban on lobbying for departing members of the House and the Senate. And he has...

    The only Obama administration official to view confidential "side deals" between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) admitted Wednesday she and her team have only seen rough drafts. "I didn't see the final documents. I saw the provisional documents, as did my experts," said Wendy Sherman, a lead U.S. negotiator for the deal, at a Senate Banking Committee hearing. Sherman, undersecretary of State for political affairs, said she was only allowed to see the confidential deals "in the middle of the negotiation" when the IAEA "wanted to go over with some of our experts the technical details." She...

    Ticket sales for President Obama’s big fundraiser Monday at the SFJazz Center are so sluggish, organizers are cutting the price of some tickets in half. The cheap seats for the Democratic National Committee luncheon — the ones that were going for $1,000 — have been reduced to $500, according to an e-mail to potential donors sent out Monday by Ella Arnold of Buell Private Political Management in San Francisco. Arnold added, “We are thrilled to announce that if you have already purchased a $1,000 ticket … your seat will now be upgraded to VIP, which includes rope line access!” We’re...

    The House leadership appears to be pulling a fast one on the American public and even fellow House members when it comes to the farm bill. The House has split up the farm-related programs and food stamps, which is great news. However, they didn’t make a single reform. That’s not the worst part, though. Every five years or so, Congress passes a new farm bill. The entire purpose of this reauthorization process is for Congress to fix the law if problems exist. The House appears to be doing away with this process for many of the most costly farm program...

    TEL AVIV — Israel has blocked exports of unmanned aerial vehicles for foreign militaries. Industry sources said the Israeli Defense Ministry vetoed requests by major companies for UAV exports. They said the proposed exports stemmed from political pressure by the United States. Israel’s business daily Globes said the UAV deals affected such producers as the state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries, Elbit Systems and Aeronautics Defense. Globes said the restrictions imposed by the Defense Ministry was dampening UAV and other military exports.
