THERE IS ALWAYS A METHOD TO THE MADNESS …
Yesterday, it was announced by President Donald Trump that Nikki Haley would be resigning from her position as U.N. Ambassador and leaving at the end of the year. Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has done a phenomenal job as U.N. ambassador and become a rock star within the GOP. The resignation was done at the White House with much pomp and circumstance in the Oval Office. This is not a normal exit for an ambassador, which begs the question, what is next for Nikki Haley? Rumors and speculation are abound. Will Nikki Haley run for Senate or maybe, just maybe VP? Haley stated yesterday that she would not be running for president in 2020 and only campaigning for President Trump. But it is hard to believe that Haley’s political career is over when she has such a political future.
Nikki Haley is a child of immigrants who rose to become South Carolina governor and then President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the U.N., before her resignation Tuesday. She will leave her U.N. post at the end of the year.
Haley, whose parents were from India, brought diversity to the administration and Trump’s naming her to the post showed he was willing to welcome Republicans who had been lukewarm toward him during the presidential campaign.
Haley had little experience in international affairs prior to her appointment. But she quickly became a prominent voice for Trump’s foreign policy.
With the Democrats being so divisive between men and women, is it possible that Nikki Haley becomes the VP for 2020?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP .. MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
As reported at The Politico, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night that the United States, Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement. Another Trump promise to the American voters has been done. And once again it is good news for Americans and the U.S. economy. President Trump has done his part, now it it up to Congress to pass and make into law. Yet another reason to vote Republican in the 2018 midterm elections so to continue the Trump-GOP economic plan.
They said it couldn’t be done and Trump did it. Trump has fulfilled a huge campaign promise to the American workers. But I guess Obama thinks he should get credit for this too.
The new pact is a major step toward completing one of the president’s signature campaign promises.
Trade ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night.
The new pact, which is being called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is a major step toward completing one of Trump’s signature campaign promises and gives the president a concrete policy win to tout on the campaign trail this fall. It also sets the stage for what is sure to be a high-stakes fight to get the agreement passed by Congress before it can become law.
U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in late August that officials are planning to sign with their Canadian and Mexican counterparts by the end of November — a date that would also satisfy Mexico, which is eager to have current President Enrique Peña Nieto sign the deal before his successor takes over Dec. 1.
“It’s a great win for the president and a validation for his strategy in the area of international trade,” a senior administration official said on a call with reporters late Sunday.
As stated at Town Hall, the economy is on a roll and it is due to President Donald Trump and the GOP, not obstructionist, resistance Democrats … So, let’s go down the checklist here. We’re cutting regulations, have opened a denuclearization dialogue with North Korea, created over 3 million jobs, boosted U.S. worker pay to its highest levels in 10 years, unemployment is at an 18-year low, consumer and small business confidence are record highs, and over three million workers received bonus checks of $1,000 or more because of the Trump tax cuts. Second quarter economic growth is at 4 percent. There are now more jobs than job seekers. The economy is booming.
ANOTHER WIN FOR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP AND AMERICA …
The Trump administration and Mexico have negotiated a new trade deal to replace NAFTA and the markets are gaining in a huge way. Candidate Trump promised during the 2016 presidential campaign that he would end NAFTA and replace it with a better deal for America and American workers. He has done it! And the markets loved it and surged on the news. The S&P 500 gained 0.8% to close at 2,896.74, a record high. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.9% to an all-time high, breaking above 8,000 points for the first time. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 259.29 points to 26,049.64.
Stocks jumped on Monday as the United States and Mexico closed a new trade deal, potentially removing a source of uncertainty that had been plaguing investors for months.
The S&P 500 gained 0.8 percent to close at 2,896.74 — a record high — with materials and financials as the best-performing sectors. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.9 percent to an all-time high, breaking above 8,000 points for the first time, as Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet rose. Tech’s gains led the Nasdaq to close at 8,017.90.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 259.29 points to 26,049.64 as Caterpillar outperformed. Monday also marked the first time since Feb. 1 that the Dow closed above 26,000.
“The market has been buffeted with a lot of headwinds lately, and the biggest one is trade,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR. “If you were to take trade out of the picture, you would have a smoother ride higher in this market.”
President Donald Trump said the deal would be called The United States-Mexico Trade agreement, leaving behind the 24-year-old NAFTA name. “The name NAFTA has a bad connotation because the United States was hurt very badly by NAFTA,” he said. Trump added that the deal with Mexico is also very helpful for farmers and manufacturers. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the deal must be approved by Congress before being implemented.
THIS IS WHAT THE LEFT REALLY THINKS OF AMERICA FOLKS …
How long will it take for this to become a political ad … Vote for Democrats because they think America was never that great.
Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated at a during a speech where he was pandering to women, that “We are not going to make America great again, it was never that great.” As he made this moronic comments, gasps came from the audience. REALLY GOV. CUOMO? This is the lengths that the LEFT will go with their hate Trump rhetoric at all cost. Is what the Democrat motto is for the 2018 midterm elections, America, It was Never that great? What kind of a foll would make such a comment? So I guess the men who fought in World War II and saved the word from the Nazis and Fascists were the Never that Great Generation? What an ass. Sorry, there is no double talk or walking these comments back and claiming he was taken out of context. According to Cuomo, America will never be great until everyone is fully engaged. WTF does that mean? America, this is what Democrats and liberal media not only think of America, but what they think of Americans as it is “We the People” who make up America.
Now Cuomo is feeling the backlash and he will never be able to shake this comment.
This coming from a political hack who is only governor of NY and has any political career due to his father’s coattails and reputation, Mario Cuomo. Do you know what that sound is Gov. Cuomo? Your political aspirations of being president just went down the toilet. Try selling that crap to the hard working men and women of America in every other state in America other than New York, California and the other America hating Leftist dark blue states.
Jonathan Turley: If Trump Meeting is Illegal, then Clinton Dossier is Criminal Too … Actually Much More Criminal
SO WHY DOES THE MSM ONLY SEE THAT TRUMP’S ACTION WERE CRIMINAL AND NOT HILLARY?
From Jonathan Turley of The Hill comes the following logic when trying to figure out why the liberal media would call one action by Donald Trump Jr. a crime, but completely dismissing the actions of Hillary Clinton and the Russian dossier. The liberal media in their efforts of “gotcha” of President Trump at any and all cost have basically described a crime, that of which Hillary Clinton did, not Donald Trump.
CNN, co-host Alisyn Camerota claims claimed that it is an “open and shut case” that taking dirt on Hillary from the Russians was a crime by the Trump campaign. Really? The CNN host does realize that no dirt was gained and the meeting was ended soon after, correct? Now compare that with what Hillary Clinton did. Dear Ms. Camerota, then what would you call it when Hillary Clinton bought and paid for the so called Russian Dossier from former British spy Christopher Steele (a foreign national) who dealt with the Russians to get info? As lawyer and legal scholar, Jonathan Turley clearly points out in a fair and unbiased manner, fi the LEFT thinks what the Trump campaign did was a crime, then the Clinton campaign was times 100! One was a meeting, end of story, the other was a bought and paid for Russian dossier by Hillary.
Take the crime being proclaimed as “open and shut.” Before Camerota came to this conclusion, the CNN anchors discussed federal election laws that make it a “crime for any person to solicit, accept, or receive, anything of value from a foreign person or U.S. political campaign for the purpose of influencing any elections for federal office.” Thus, if Trump Jr. was willing to review evidence of criminal conduct by Clinton, it must be a type of foreign campaign contribution and, therefore, a federal crime.
Such logic is so inescapable that Camerota responded, “I mean, what more really is there to talk about after that one?” The answer is “a lot more.” The Russians setting up the meeting said their government had evidence of criminal conduct connected to the Clinton Foundation soliciting illegal donations. According to witnesses, Trump Jr. asked for the promised evidence but Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya said she did not have it and only wanted to talk about Magnitsky Act limitations on Russian adoptions. The meeting ended shortly thereafter.
Consider the implications of what the critics are suggesting. It would mean treating information as a form of political contribution as no different from money, for purposes of a criminal charge, even information about criminal acts by an election candidate. That would mean administrations could prosecute political opponents for merely attending meetings with foreign individuals to discuss the criminal conduct of a sitting American president. Democratic politicians could be charged if they reviewed evidence of alleged bribes or quid pro quos by Trump.
Indeed, it could be any foreign source, since the law is ambiguous. Does that not include foreign organizations like environmental and other public interest groups? How about journalists or lawyers sharing evidence of crimes by powerful politicians? Fortunately, courts likely would reject such an interpretation as a major threat to First Amendment freedoms of speech and even the press. So why are so many journalists and activists blind to implications of such an expansion? The answer is rage. We live in the age of rage, from Trump tweets to cable news crusades.
The latest media frenzy is part of the Newtonian principles that now guide both politics and journalism: “To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.” However, journalists and lawyers are trained to avoid immediate involuntary reactions, particularly when the potential costs are so prohibitive. Responding to a sweeping political tweet with a sweeping legal interpretation is neither equal nor wise. In the end, the Trump Tower controversy is not based on “fake news” as claimed by the president, but the federal crime alleged by the media is based on fake law.
