Another win for Trump

Won't see this in the MSM, nor likely see j report on it, he only reports negative stories on the country he hates so much and won't leave.

Trump still undoing EOs from obozo that gave away all kinds of security in our ports to communist countries like China.

https://www.judicialwatch.org/corrup...unist-control/

--------------------------
Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

It all started with a 40-year container terminal lease between the Port of Long Beach in southern California and Hong Kong. The Obama administration proudly signed the agreement in 2012 giving China control of America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles. One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

Obama may have to skedaddle to China or Canada or Iran.

He is the big poison. He tried to destroy the US economy and sovereignty. Trump is also stopping China from buying more land on CONUS.

It is a war right now, that is boiling due to cash flows out of china, killing them.

Is very funny how Amerikans are not seeing their decline and rise of China. In 30 years dollar is probably replaced by Yuan. Amerika is right now in late stage collapse like Soviet Union in 1989 or Roman Empire. China is replacing you on world stage and Trump will not be stopping this.

In 30 years,China might be a desert wasteland. Or it might be underwater. In any event,I ain't taking Yuans for payment. Hell,there might not be currency in physical form in 30 years. Like Star Trek....

From what I'm seeing on the financial markets the Fed is issuing cash to keep the banks propped up and Trump is pushing to lower interest rates which will lower the value of the dollar in competition with the yuan. If we lower interest rates any further we will be paying the banks to take money from the Fed. We are now racing to the bottom and are facing a very real scenario where the middle class could likely be wiped out entirely within the next year. The country may survive, we would beat China but the cost is going to be huge. I don't think anyone is even really discussing it, we are now in uncharted waters, issuing a $100B a day to the banks just to keep them from shutting down.

Optics are the reality and when it comes to appearances it's all who you're standing next to. Trump appears to know this.

The reason the dollar is high against the yuan is people want dollars, not yuan. Not exactly a marker of a currency on the cusp of failure. Yes it's a game of chicken, always has been. Low currency value encourages investment and brings wealth in. High currency value drives it out, but again it's all about what the alternatives are.

This is the great game. The trick is to provide enough liquidity to keep your currency competitive. Not so little that your currency becomes noncompetitive and drives out new business, not so much that it drowns in it's own blood during the next slowdown.

China is owning America. I can understand American need to cope with being swept from #1 spot on world stage but the sun is setting on Amerika. Everyone is knowing this except Americans. I am thinking they are knowing but cannot face reality.

So for the past 10 years interest rates were 0%......they pretty well already wiped the savings of most elderly Americans out by forcing them to spend principal to pay bills....

So here is the actual story about interbank overnight float.....

That's my read.

Good luck competing with free people in a free market if you aren't. I know we aren't exactly that but we are the closest thing on the planet.

We are not an empire. We are the only place on earth where individual freedom is encoded by law. The rest of the world's elite has been fighting that idea since we came up with it. Don't give up. Water the tree, if it needs waterin'. Your ancestors did.

Russian bot is Fatima, again, after being banned, and is no Russian or UK citizen.

As most dems working for Communism, she supports China, and hates Trump, Israel, and loves Obama, Hillary and will only spout bullshit against the USA and Trump.

China is being throttled by Trump right now and their already shaky economy cannot take any more of the Trump tarriffs.

The dollar will stand on top of world affairs, even as the chinese manipulate their currency into dust like the German mark after WWI.

Fatima cannot stand any Trump victories or even his fight.
