Nafta Deadline Arrives With
Little Prospect for an Agreement

Bloomberg Politics, by Josh Wingrove, Jenny Leonard*

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/17/2018 5:30:56 AM

House Speaker Paul Ryan warned a new Nafta deal had to be completed by Thursday, but Donald Trump’s trade chief told lawmakers he expects that deadline will not be met. Citing American trade law, Ryan had said May 17 was the last day to receive notice of intent to sign a deal for a new North American Free Trade Agreement that could be passed by the current Congress (Snip) Trade talks normally take years. The existing deal remains in force and negotiations will continue, but the window to pass it in the current Congress is about to close as U.S. attention shifts to other challenges, like the simmering trade dispute with China.

Comments:
* w/ Eric Martin, Billy House.]

Congress continues to kick the can down the road, thereby eroding President Trump´s ability to restructure our trade more favorable to US.

Article is trying to shape the establishments position that it is too late by heavily weighting the voices to imply that undertone as such. This attempt at boxing in Trump can easily be thwarted by giving the six month notice that we are pulling out of NAFTA. Boom, I am sure something will get negotiated and agreed upon then. So the real question is are there enough patriots in Congress to pass the right agreement? What we can do is keep working hard in our local communities to make sure we elect people to support MAGA.

Maybe we don´t need an agreement, especially a bad agreement. The failures of the Mexican government are becoming stark without the NAFTA subsidy.

So in other words this is 100% fake news. There is no actual deadline. Would be better to wait for a Republican lead Congress.

Trump Administration Tells Congress
It Has a Deal to Revive ZTE
New York Times, by Ana Swanson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/25/2018 1:16:19     Post Reply
Washington - The Trump administration has told lawmakers it has reached a deal that would keep the Chinese telecom firm ZTE alive, a person familiar with the matter said. The move could allow trade negotiations with China to move forward, but would probably provoke an intense backlash in Congress. Under the agreement brokered by the Commerce Department, ZTE would pay a substantial fine, hire American compliance officers to be placed at the firm and make changes to its current management team. (Snip) The Chinese company was recently banned from buying American technology components for seven years as

The president of the labor union representing Border Patrol agents criticized President Trump’s move to deploy the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border, calling it a “colossal waste of resources.” Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, said the union has “seen no benefit” from the deployment of about 1,600 troops so far, according to the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. Judd said he originally supported the move because past deployments have been helpful to the Border Patrol, but that this time, “that has not happened at all.” "When I found out the National Guard was going to be on the border.

A US Senate committee has passed a defence bill that would see Turkey barred from purchasing Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike fighter jets as tensions continue over its detention of US citizen Andrew Brunson. (Snip) “There is tremendous hesitancy [about] transferring sensitive F-35 planes and technology to a nation who has purchased a Russian air defence system designed to shoot these very planes down,” Senator Shaheen said. Earlier today, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hami Aksoy told reporters that the measure was “against the spirit of our alliance with the US”, but that Ankara would respond if the

The Israeli Supreme Court has fully backed the army’s policy of shooting unarmed Palestinian protesters in the occupied Gaza Strip, issuing its decision yesterday in response to two petitions filed by human rights groups. According to legal rights centre Adalah, one of the petitioners, the court’s decision gives a “a green light to its continued use of snipers and live fire against Palestinian protesters”. Three Supreme Court justices unanimously rejected both petitions, one of which was filed by Adalah and Al-Mezan, the other by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Yesh Din, Gisha and HaMoked.

FDA´s pitiful, politicized press to
pull baby teething meds from market
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/25/2018 12:06:49     Post Reply
The Food and Drug Administration issued parents some stern warnings about teething medicines for their babies, and simultaneously told manufacturers and retailers that if they didn’t “voluntarily” stop selling the product to the tiny toddler demographic, they would face legal action from the feds. Voluntary compliance — gotta love the federal definition of that, yes? But the bigger question with this FDA message to consumers is this: Why now? And the bigger theme, of course, would be this: Shouldn’t parents, rather than government, be the final deciders of what’s best for their babies? After all, the FDA has been warning about the

New York - Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted son, Moses Farrow, on Wednesday defended his father from allegations of sexual assault made by his sister. In a nearly 5,000-word post, Moses elaborated further on claims he had made in previous interviews that his mother was physically abusive to him and her other children and that she coerced her daughter Dylan into accusing Allen of assault. “I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention,” Farrow wrote in the post titled A Son Speaks Out.

President Trump is on a collision course with Congress on ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications giant sanctioned for doing business with Iran and North Korea. Trump has publicly signaled his desire to ease the restrictions on ZTE as he seeks China´s cooperation on North Korea talks and hammering out a trade deal. But Trump’s pivot on ZTE has received terrible reviews from Republicans in Congress, who have joined with Democrats in passing measures to ensure the restrictions are kept in place. (Snip) The company was also found to have violated U.S. sanctions, selling banned components to Iran

US weather: Watch

(Video) - Stunning footage shows much of the US lit up with bright lightning as it spreads across the country. The video – taken by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – comes from a brand new satellite launched to survey weather over the US. It allows scientists and weather experts to see activity above the Western Hemisphere in unprecedented detail. The data shown in the video can be used to plot where lightning is striking. That, in turn, allows them to predict whether intense weather and storms might be forming and then becoming dangerous – potentially allowing experts to spot

(Video) Washington - President Donald Trump has canceled his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In a letter to Kim, Trump wrote that it would be “inappropriate” to hold the planned historic summit. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting,” he wrote. The summit was to take place June 12th in Singapore. Trump did leave the door open to a future meeting. “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters.

North Korea on Thursday demolished what it claims to be its nuclear test site, setting off several explosions over the course of a few hours in the presence of foreign journalists. Sky News reporter Tom Cheshire was invited to the explosion and told the station that he and his colleagues walked up into the mountains to watch the demolition. “There was a huge explosion, you could feel it. Dust came at you, the heat came at you. It was extremely loud,” Cheshire said. The explosions at the supposed nuclear test site deep in the mountains were centered on three tunnels into the underground site and a number of observation towers in the

President Trump on Thursday dismissed the possibility of an immigration bill being signed into law without containing a provision that funds his signature campaign promise for a border wall along the U.S.´ southern border with Mexico. In an interview with "Fox and Friends," the president touted four immigration bills currently being discussed by lawmakers, before warning that none of them would obtain his signature without proper funding for border security.

President Trump said former FBI Director James Comey was one of the "rotten apples" at the FBI, after Comey accused Trump of spreading lies about his former agency. “The FBI is a fantastic institution, but some of the people at the top were rotten apples. James Comey was one of them,” Trump told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday. “I’ve done a great service to this country by getting rid of him, by firing him.” Comey said on Twitter Wednesday that Trump´s attacks on and lies about the FBI will cause “lasting damage” to the country. “Facts matter.

NEW YORK — In his newly released book, Sen. John McCain admits he knew the anti-Trump dossier that he infamously passed to the FBI contained “unproven accusations,” “mostly raw, unverified intelligence” and allegations about which the senator “had no idea” if “any were true.” Yet McCain maintains he had an “obligation” to pass the wild charges against Donald Trump to FBI Director James Comey and he would even do it again. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked. President Donald Trump’s presidency has thus far been racked with scandalous allegations, but Obama later hedged his barb. "But actually,” he said, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It´s a big deal."

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
