Trump’s tariff war nudges Cohn
toward White House exit

Politico, by Ben White and Andrew Restuccia

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/3/2018 8:59:16 AM

Gary Cohn, President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, has been rumored to be on the brink of leaving the White House for months but stayed for one main reason: to stop the president from imposing steep tariffs. By Thursday afternoon, Cohn had lost the fight. In a meeting with steel industry executives, Trump announced plans for a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports. The decision came after a frantic 24 hours in which Cohn and others tried to talk Trump off the ledge. At one point, aides were sure Trump would make the announcement. Then they said he wouldn’t.

Even ZeroHedge is in the act, but quite differently. Musical chairs, anyone?

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-02/gary-cohn-threatened-resign-over-controversial-steel-aluminum-tariffs

And elsewhere we read that Wilbur Ross may be President Trump’s next financial guy. (He really is already, in essence. Has been for a long time.)

Isn’t it fun to muck around in this? Meanwhile the President watches. Observes.

What´s clear is Trump doesn´t just have a bunch of "YES-MEN" in his Cabinet.

Unlike the previous administration who marched in line, to the same tune, and followed orders to the "T".

Friends,rumors, Administration officials who will go unnamed.....this is trash journalism!

Cohn might not have liked the decision or the way it was handled, so what! Do you think he´ll just way, ´then if you don´t do it my way...I quit!´ The writers are mistaking the actions of the current Administration for the last one! Reasonable people can disagree, and move on. That was/is not the Hawaiian or Progressive way!

Fake news!

So, protecting US steel and aluminum production is verboten? Only if you want ot Make America Weak Again

Sorry, these are critical, strategic materials and we MUST have robust, capable producers inside our country.

We absolutely CANNOT be in a position that China can cut us off from the ability to manufacture things with steel or aluminum, especially weapons systems. This is a strategic capability and we cannot be so stupid as to let China collapse our infrastructure to make them by shipping us cheap, subsidized steel and aluminum, until our own industry dies, and then they have us by the short hairs.

If the cost of having this critical, strategic manufacturing capability is a few dollars more on products, then it is a very small price to pay to avoid being taking under control of China when we have no capability to make them, and the Dragon decides to suddenly raise prices, or cut off supplies.

I certainly would hope Chinese steel goes through rigorous testing. Look at all the wall board, mad in China was poisonous and had to be replaced in that ravaged areas of Florida, destroyed by hurricanes.If you shop Dollar Stores, be sure to check the country or origin. If the product only says distributed by...skip it. Of course I am referring to food products.

Mueller’s Fruit of the Poisonous Tree.
Wall Street Journal, by David B. Rivkin Jr.*    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/23/2018 8:15:04 AM     Post Reply
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may face a serious legal obstacle: It is tainted by antecedent political bias. The June 14 report from Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, unearthed a pattern of anti-Trump bias by high-ranking officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of their communications, the report says, were “not only indicative of a biased state of mind but imply a willingness to take action to impact a presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.” Although Mr. Horowitz could not definitively ascertain whether this bias “directly affected” specific FBI actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, it nonetheless affects

Just How Doomed Is Lupe Valdez?

Three days before she secured the Democratic nomination for governor on May 22, Guadalupe “Lupe” Valdez greeted a small crowd at the Blue Star Brewing Company, an upscale pub on the banks of the San Antonio River. A few months had passed since Valdez had traded in the blue uniform of Dallas County sheriff for business-casual campaign attire. Valdez glowed with pride as she worked the room. Almost everyone towered over her, but the mostly Hispanic audience appeared deferential. Valdez told her audience, including former San Antonio mayor Julián Castro, that she grew up just west of downtown, in one

America Lost Its Greatest Political
Commentator in Krauthammer

When you call someone the greatest at anything, you risk being accused of foolishness or worse; but it´s safe to say that Charles Krauthammer, who passed away Thursday, was the greatest political commentator of our time. I write this not just because he won the Pulitzer for commentary as a conservative, a near Herculean task. And I say this even though I sometimes disagreed with him, especially lately. Whom do we not disagree with at one time or another -- even ourselves? I write this because Krauthammer was the gold standard of columnists, the most incisive mind in political journalism augmented by

U.S. will stop prosecuting parents

Washington Post, by Nick Miroff    Original Article

Federal authorities will no longer file criminal charges against migrant parents who cross into the United States illegally, a senior U.S. Customs and Border Protection official told The Washington Post on Thursday. The about-face comes just one day after President Trump signed an executive order ending his administration’s widely denounced practice of separating parents and children apprehended for illegally crossing the Mexico border. Trump’s order said the government would maintain a “zero tolerance” policy toward those who break the law, but the senior U.S. official, asked to explain how the government would

Review the Clinton email scandal, the Steele dossier, the insertion of at least one FBI informant into the Trump campaign, the misleading of the FISA court by FBI and DOJ officials intent on monitoring U.S. citizens, and, now, the inspector general’s report. There emerges a common denominator: the surety by all involved that Hillary Clinton would be president, and the need to prepare for that fact. Examine the IG’s transcript of a random, pre-election series of electronic chitchat between high-ranking FBI employees: 15:07:41, Agent 1: “ . . .

No more ´internment camps´: Democrats
disrupt congressional hearing

WASHINGTON - Decrying “internment camps,” Democrats and their supporters disrupted a high-profile U.S. congressional hearing on Tuesday with a dramatic protest against the Trump administration’s policy of detaining immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. With the sound of a young child crying in the background, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, broke from traditional protocol and started reading from a statement, saying “these children are not animals.” His Republican colleagues tried to shout over him “Out of order!”

Growing Up With Steve Miller
Texas Monthly Magazine, by Max Marshall    Original Article

One night in the spring of 2007, when I was thirteen, my little brother and I cupped our hands to our upstairs hallway window, looked through the cigar smoke in our backyard, and tried to find Steve Miller. There was a grown-up party swirling around outside, but we couldn’t figure out which adult was the celebrity guest. We’d learned every Steve Miller Band classic rock hit from 93.3 The Bone, but we had no idea what the guy looked like. The albums we owned either had a painting of Pegasus or a man in a Joker mask on the cover,

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

The Minnesota Vikings made history on Thursday. Vikings players, coaches and members of the LGBTQ community came together for a first of its kind inclusion summit held by an NFL team. The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports. (snip) Kluwe´s hope is that the NFL and other sports leagues take notice, and it sparks conversations leading to more acceptance of the LGBTQ community in the athletic world.

George Will demands voters punish

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
