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?

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!

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.

America Lost Its Greatest Political

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

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: “ . . .

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!”

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,

Insubordination and Bias at FBI
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/15/2018 8:06:36     Post Reply
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 500-page report covers plenty, but it can be distilled to two words he uses to describe the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the 2016 election: insubordination and bias. Two terms that are chilling in connection with such a powerful agency. That won’t be the message from Democrats and most of the press, who will focus on a few episodes they will claim cost Hillary Clinton an election. Watch for them to blame former FBI Director James Comey, whom the report faults for “a serious error of judgment,” for having “concealed information” from superiors, and for “violation of or

A key FBI investigator in the probes into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server wrote to his bureau colleague and lover that “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday revealed the text message exchange between the agent, Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, in his report on the FBI’s and Justice Department’s probe into the bureau’s handling of the probe into Clinton’s emails, the Washington Post reported. “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok. “No. No he won’t.

Rod Rosenstein, cult hero

More than any federal agency or department I’ve worked for, with, or against, the Justice Department resembles a cult. Its employees think they are special. They feel intense hostility towards the Department’s adversaries. They are fiercely loyal to the Department and compulsively committed to its ways of doing things. Outsiders are viewed with condescension and suspicion, if not contempt. Obviously, many DOJ employees do not buy fully into the cult, but many do. Those who rise to the top tend to embrace it the most. This brings us to Rod Rosenstein, a career DOJ attorney who joined the department in 1990.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz faults then-FBI Director James Comey for being “insubordinate” and other FBI agents for sending anti-Trump text messages in his long-awaited review of the FBI and DOJ’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential election. For more than a year, Horowitz has been reviewing the agencies’ actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. The report was released Thursday afternoon. Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a

Disruption Isn’t Enough

Donald Trump has proved in 18 months that he can disrupt the global status quo, for better (Iran) and worse (trade). The question as he brawls with his G-7 allies after their annual summit and now meets with adversary Kim Jong Un is whether the President knows that disruption isn’t enough. Sooner or later he has to contribute to a better world order instead of merely blowing up the old one. Unlike most of the U.S.-Europe foreign-policy elite, we think the world needed some shaking up. Barack Obama saw America as an overstretched power that needed restraining for the world’s

Ben Rhodes worked for eight full years as Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communications and speechwriting, a White House position that was inaugurated the same day Mr. Obama was. “Like Obama, Rhodes is a storyteller who uses a writer’s tools to advance an agenda that is packaged as politics but is often quite personal,” journalist David Samuels wrote in a 2016 profile. “Even where the particulars of that story are true, the implications that readers and viewers are encouraged to take away from those particulars are often misleading or false.” Is it possible that Mr. Rhodes’s talent for

According to its name, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) exists to protect consumers. But according to the vision of its progenitor, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, the CFPB is a government-sanctioned bludgeon to be wielded against businesses and industries at the whim of its director — whom she intended, like a latter-day Louis XIV, to be herself. In Richard Cordray, the inaugural helmsman she handpicked after being slapped down (in relation to the latter ambition), Ms. Warren had a partner just as dedicated as she to punishing profitability under the guise of consumer advocacy. Late in 2017 Mr. Cordray departed the CFPB

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

While Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report proves the FBI colluded with the Hillary campaign to exonerate her in the email investigation, Democrats are bombarding Americans with fabricated propaganda about Trump’s “heartless” immigration policy, which consists of the president enforcing the already established laws, Limbaugh explained Tuesday. “We are smack dab in the middle of another manufactured media crisis about the supposed ‘Donald Trump, that purposely, wontedly,
