California looking to blacklist companies working on border wall

Don’t the Democrats like to preach that they are the party of tolerance and inclusion?  Of course we know this is a lie.  They’re tolerant so long as you agree with exactly everything they say.  Toe the party line or suffer the consequences.  Via The Washington Free Beacon:

As President Donald Trump renews his battle with Congress to fund his multi-billion-dollar border wall with Mexico, Democratic lawmakers and liberal groups in California have stepped up their campaigns to blacklist businesses involved in building the border wall.

San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.

The majority Democratic San Diego City Council, in a 3 to 1 vote last week, directed city officials to draft an ordinance requiring contractors competing for city projects to disclose any past and present work, as well as planned bids, on parts of Trump’s planned border wall.

“Trump’s border wall does nothing to promote San Diego’s robust economy and our positive international ties with Mexico,” Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Our region is stronger because of our cross-border exchange with our neighbors to the south.”

I’m all for freedom of choice for consumers to choose who they support and buy products from.  But this is not that.  As the left pushes further to the extreme left and outright Communism, they will continue to ramp up government intervention and control.  Centralized planning is a core tenet of Communism.  And again none of their policies respect a diversity of opinions.  If you do not agree with them they will black ball you and try and ruin your life.  Is it really fair to the construction workers of these countries who are trying to put food on their tables for their families to suffer because the feral left want to take their toys and walk away?  How tolerant!

Nearly 100 out of the estimated 600 companies who have competed for border-wall contracts so far are reportedly based in California, and 10 percent of those firms are Hispanic-owned, according to the Guardian.

I think it’s funny how much they’re willing to hurt their fellow Californians in this blatant attempt to railroad and delay essential infrastructure for border security.  Remember also how much we’re told how racist the wall is.  Sorry, but many legal Hispanics also agree with better border security and lower levels of even legal immigration.  You cannot have a country if you have porous borders that allow in drugs, human trafficking, and a multitude of future welfare recipients on the public dole with zero skin in the game.  As much as Ms Bry wants to obfuscate the truth about our relationship with Mexico, it is possible to control your border and still maintain friendly relations.

North Korea has a lot of rare earth minerals (REM)

Forbes recently put out an article highlighting the massive amount of rare earth minerals North Korea possesses.

It was revealed recently that North Korea is sitting on approximately $6 trillion worth of natural resources, which the country lacks the technology or expertise to extract. The impoverished nation is quite literally sitting on a goldmine, a significant portion of which is made up of rare earth metals.

Rare earth metals are not – as you would expect – exceptionally rare, but are generally found in small trace quantities underground. What is rare is to find them in high concentrations, which is exactly what experts believe is present beneath the soil of North Korea.

Not only are these resources difficult to obtain, they’re also crucial to many of our most advanced technologies. “The magnetic and conductive properties of these elements allow our modern technologies to be lighter, faster, and stronger, making them more efficient,” says Dr. Julie Michelle Klinger, an assistant professor of international relations at Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies. Among other things, they’re used in MRI scanners, cancer treatment drugs, nuclear reactor shielding, aircraft engines and smartphones.

“Without rare earths and the miniaturization capabilities they provide, computers would be the size of classrooms instead of the size of smartphones,” says Dr. Klinger. She points out that although the likelihood of rare earth elements beneath North Korea is high, they are obtainable elsewhere in the world. The concern, therefore, is not over where these elements can be found, but rather with where they are already being mined.

Today, around 90% of the world’s rare earth elements come from China (mostly in Inner Mongolia). Between January and September 2016, China exported 35,200 tons of rare-earth materials, a 50% increase (PDF) compared to the same period in 2015, according to the USGS. Other nations such as the U.S. have been attempting to build out their own refinery systems, so as not to be so dependent on China’s supply, but progress has been slow. The one refinery that the U.S. has established was shut down last year, and was sold last month to a Chinese consortium.

As I wrote about earlier today China realizes how smart President Trump is.  You’re fooling yourself if you don’t think President Trump realizes the cache of REMs available under their feet and is positioning the United States to at least have a chance of competing against China for them in North Korea.  None of this would be possible if he’d gone with the neo-con war approach the establishment so desperately wanted him to do.  He is a master of far east politics and has treated Kim Jong Un with respect for him to save face and played hardball to be respected.  Great vid below from styxhexenhammer666 about why President Trump is succeeding in the far east regarding foreign policy.

China gets it

Great article over at American Thinker about how China views President Trump.  Rightly so, they see him as a strategic and tactical genius.

Few Chinese think that Mr Trump’s primary concern is to rebalance the bilateral trade deficit. If it were, they say, he would have aligned with the EU, Japan and Canada against China rather than scooping up America’s allies in his tariff dragnet. They think the US president’s goal is nothing less than remaking the global order.

They think Mr Trump feels he is presiding over the relative decline of his great nation. It is not that the current order does not benefit the US. The problem is that it benefits others more in relative terms. To make things worse the US is investing billions of dollars and a fair amount of blood in supporting the very alliances and international institutions that are constraining America and facilitating China’s rise.

In Chinese eyes, Mr Trump’s response is a form of “creative destruction”. He is systematically destroying the existing institutions — from the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement to Nato and the Iran nuclear deal — as a first step towards renegotiating the world order on terms more favourable to Washington.

Once the order is destroyed, the Chinese elite believes, Mr Trump will move to stage two: renegotiating America’s relationship with other powers. Because the US is still the most powerful country in the world, it will be able to negotiate with other countries from a position of strength if it deals with them one at a time rather than through multilateral institutions that empower the weak at the expense of the strong.

My interlocutors say that Mr Trump is the US first president for more than 40 years to bash China on three fronts simultaneously: trade, military and ideology. They describe him as a master tactician, focusing on one issue at a time, and extracting as many concessions as he can. They speak of the skilful way Mr Trump has treated President Xi Jinping. “Look at how he handled North Korea,” one says. “He got Xi Jinping to agree to UN sanctions [half a dozen] times, creating an economic stranglehold on the country. China almost turned North Korea into a sworn enemy of the country.” But they also see him as a strategist, willing to declare a truce in each area when there are no more concessions to be had, and then start again with a new front.

It’s funny how everyone in the liberal West think President Trump is a clown; somebody who is stupid and got by on daddy’s dime.  As if they could turn a $1 million dollar loan into a billion dollar empire.  There really is the 2 standard deviation communication gap at play with most Americans.  Really low IQ people think President Trump is really dumb, because they are too dim to see what true genius looks like.  Most people agree people from the far East are on average higher IQ, and it’s no surprise that they recognize the genius of President Trump and take him seriously.

This is a magical time we’re living in.  We have just the right hero to take on the globalist Cabal, with the FU money required to not be bought, bribed, or blackmailed.  He has the composure and business acumen to make difficult decisions under the most high pressure situations, and a deep understanding and knowledge of the dark inner workings of the Cabal.  My hope is he inspires enough patriots to continue his work when he is gone, though I do fear he is just delaying an inevtiable collapse.  But that’s loser talk.  He needs all the help he can get.  The sacrifice he has made for his country and Western civilization will never be forgotten.

MSM Folks – WaPo: ‘God bless the deep state’

Eugene Robinson of the dumpster fire known as the Washington Post has released an opinion piece praising the deep state.  Yep.  Seriously.  A few choice snippets from the article.

Before this harebrained and reckless administration is history, the nation will have cause to celebrate the public servants derided by Trumpists as the supposed “deep state.”

The term itself is propaganda, intended to cast a sinister light upon men and women whom Trump and his minions find annoyingly knowledgeable and experienced. They are not participants in any kind of dark conspiracy. Rather, they are feared and loathed by the president and his wrecking crew of know-nothings because they have spent years — often decades — mastering the details of foreign and domestic policy.

God bless them. With a supine Congress unwilling to play the role it is assigned by the Constitution, the deep state stands between us and the abyss.

Is it propaganda too that opposition research was used as the primary source to spy on a political opponent’s campaign, Eugene?  Or that there’s been a witch hunt to try and pin ANYTHING on President Trump to try and impeach him in a soft coup?  It goes on:

Thanks to a New York Times article published Wednesday night, we now know that the nation’s top intelligence officials briefed Trump in detail about the Russian meddling on Jan. 6, 2017 — two weeks before his inauguration. According to the Times, the officials shared with Trump powerful evidence that the interference, meant to boost Trump’s chances of winning, was ordered by Putin himself.

So we know that when Trump casts doubt on Russia’s culpability, he’s not speaking from a position of ignorance. It’s not that intelligence officials have asked him to take their conclusion on faith. They’ve shown him the goods. He’s just lying.

Who were the anonymous sources for the Times story? I have no idea. But if I had spent a career fighting for my country in the secrets world, and I heard my president give more credence to the former KGB officer who rules an undemocratic Russia than to his own intelligence chief, I would be angry.

Seriously dude.  Why in the flying FUCK would President Trump trust any of this intel, once again from anonymous sources no less.  It’s ALWAYS anonymous sources.  It’s been proven that people working on the Mueller team loathed President Trump and actively tried to derail his presidency.  Is this guy really this blind, or just shilling hard for his globalist masters?  Something tells me he wasn’t writing opinion pieces when Obama, or Hillary, or Schumer, or Bush was meeting with Putin.

The mainstream media is just as complicit as any deep state officials in all of this.  They peddle their lies and propaganda to the masses in a fear mongering attempt to control the narrative.  Why they think we will believe them now after they’ve been found out is beyond me.  I think their hubris truly makes them blind to how discredited and not believable they are.  Or they just think we are that stupid and that we’ll forget everything they’ve done up to this point to try and tear the nation apart.  People are waking up.  And some of the comments in the comment section give me hope that normies are waking up in record numbers too.

A Potentially Powerful Ally

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said there are “forces” at work that are trying to hamper an improvement in U.S.-Russia relations.

Commenting on his summit with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, Putin said, “We see that there are forces in the United States that are prepared to casually sacrifice Russian-U.S. relations, to sacrifice them for their ambitions in the course of an internal political battle in the United States,” Reuters reported.

As reported by Holly Ellyatt over at CNBC.  President Putin gets it.  And he knows that President Trump is not the enemy.  The Cabal is in full press here to thwart any sort of alliance between these two stalwarts who love their respective countries.  Reports of massive hacking attacks leading up to the summit in Finland is further proof that a Trump/Putin alliance is a real threat to the Deep State.  As had been said many times before, you know you’re over the target when the flak starts.  A Trump/Putin alliance, both fighting to preserve their countries, would be massive.

You make the bed you sleep in

Dough Schoen of Fox News has released this piece about how the Democrats are divided within the party in what could spell disaster in the upcoming elections.  From the article:

The lack of consensus between the two factions of the Democratic Party is clear, unambiguous and startling.

The progressive agenda focuses primarily on resisting President Trump at every step, labeling his every action a scandal, and calling for his impeachment without any vetted or verifiable evidence of wrongdoing. Progressives also advocate a redistribution of wealth without any long-term plan to fund policies such as Medicare-for-All or guaranteed employment.

The moderates offer a distinctly different worldview. They offer a plan for inclusive economic growth and an alternative set of policies to resolve the issues surrounding immigration and health care. At the same time, they reject party-line loyalty to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and calls for President Trump’s impeachment.

It was clear to anybody with half a brain and an objective viewpoint to see this was inevitable.  Identity politics has been the name of the game for the Dems for quite some time now.  And they assumed that all these wildly different groups of people would somehow miraculously get along and sing kumbaya together and live in harmony.  Free shit for everybody is another constant, and of course the impeachment of President Trump.

The cognitive dissonance is fascinating to watch.  The better the economy gets, the lower the unemployment, having more money in everyone’s pockets, contrasted with constant screaming and “outrage” from the other side really is a thing to behold.  The left has no platform for this coming mid-terms.  What exactly are they going to run on?  The country is objectively stronger, richer, and more prosperous under President Trump.

It was only a matter of time before the Socialists and Communists clashed with the moderate left.  And it couldn’t happen to a worse group of people.  The constant division they pushed within this country, especially during the past 10 years, has set this country back decades.  An absolute bloodbath in the coming mid-terms would be the best thing for this country.  Hopefully, some day, this will pave for way for a 3rd party.  The Republicans aren’t much better, and in some ways worse from a traitorous standpoint, than the Dems.  Strong Libertarian candidates would be the eventual ideal.  Perhaps, after this bloodbath, and a continued purging of the Cabal by our heroic President, the way will be paved for more than two shitty options in the future.

The Democratic leadership can and should achieve a compromise with President Trump and the Republicans on providing necessary funding to secure the Southern border and also create a pathway to citizenship for individuals who illegally entered the United States through no fault of their own, and since that time have contributed greatly to the American economy and our society.

I really don’t think Mr Schoen realizes that this will never happen.  The feral left needs open borders to have any chance of succeeding in the future. Their platform simply isn’t sustainable any other way.  They do not care about American citizens.  The drugs and human trafficking coming over the border, much as they can pretend they want to stop it, is essential for their survival.  Mass immigration still remains the biggest issue that needs addressing.  Our country cannot survive in its current state.

RIP

You could make an argument there is no job more stressful right now than that of a Secret Service agent for President Donald Trump.  Via secretservice.gov:

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) On July 15, 2018, a U.S. Secret Service Special Agent suffered a severe cerebrovascular accident in Scotland where he was traveling in support of Presidential Protection. It is with great sadness and regret to report that the agent, a 19-year Secret Service veteran and dedicated professional of the highest order, passed early this morning on July 17, 2018, in Scotland. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by members of his immediate family and his extended Secret Service family.
The agent’s name is intentionally being withheld to respect the family’s privacy and allow time to complete personnel and family notifications. We ask for your patience as we work to support the agent’s family and co-workers following this loss of a dedicated career public servant.
A heartfelt thanks to him for the service provided to his country.  President Trump’s heroic and monumental effort to right this country and the West comes with unimaginable danger, stress, and turmoil.  I cannot even fathom the amount of stress and constant worry these brave men face on a daily basis.  May he rest in peace and may his family find comfort in knowing his effort was greatly appreciated by true American citizens.
