Why no one is talking about Trump’s game-changing deal

Why no one is talking about Trump’s game-changing deal

Glen Dale, W. Va. — Bad news travels fast. Good news, meanwhile, doesn’t seem to travel at all.

Last weekend in Beijing, as part of his 12-day trip to Asia, President Trump announced that the US and China had signed an $83.7 billion memorandum of understanding to create a number of petrochemical projects in West Virginia over the next 20 years.

If the agreement holds tight, it is an economic game changer for the state.

And yet, speaking to the locals here, you wouldn’t even know it had happened.

Winning!

Repost from American Digest: Court of the Red Czar

“If you’ve ever read the book by Simon Sebag Montefiore, “Stalin: In the Court of the Red Tsar”, the classic Soviet procedure was to bring forth false witnesses, then more witnesses, then forged documents. Then more false witnesses.

“And then yet more fake witnesses: but always, always, always: repeat the lie. Repeat the lie, repeat the lie, repeat the lie. The Supreme Soviet could not be wrong, so any one who question them, was also a traitor. Repeat the lie.

“Another favorite technique of Beria and his predecessors was to always choose an alleged “crime” that was impossible to defend. The favorite in their era was homosexuality.

Against Judge Moore, it is “pedopheeeeelia”.

Sarah “I’m probably packing”

NBC News’ : “Have you ever experienced sexual harassment in the workplace?” Sarah Palin: “People know that I’m probably packing, so I don’t think there’s a whole lot of people who would necessarily mess with me.”

 Update:  I had to explain to someone that in this context “Packing” means Sarah carries a gun.  Probably referring to a pistol and she has a ‘Concealed Carry’ permit.

Ah! If only Al Franken had tried to molest this women, problem solved!

ZMan: Quote of the Day

It feels like America is a fleet of ships lashed together for so long that no one remembers why they are lashed together. As the ropes begin to break, no one is trying to repair them. Instead. people are severing them so everyone can drift apart and go their own way. In the process, various madmen are setting fire to other boats and cackling like lunatics. Those who want to keep things together, just because that’s the way it has always been, are starting to think it is time to cut everyone loose.

Reposted from American Digest: Bloody shovel

Bloody shovel

“If you think it can’t get worse than transexuals or pedophiles, you’re really not understanding how this works. Look at this NYT article: a black woman, ex-con, convicted of murdering her own 4 year old son. She served 20 years of prison, which she spent studying sociology or something. After leaving prison, she applied to study a PhD at Harvard, which rejected her. Progressives were on arms. How could you!

“Go to the link, and look at that woman. Look at that face. She never expressed any remorse over killing her children. She lied about it in the PhD application. She disposed of the body and never told the cops where her son’s corpse is! This is utter and complete psycho. Nobody on it’s right mind would want anything to do with this woman.

But that’s precisely the point. In most human societies before 1900 she would have been killed, legally or extralegally. But precisely this kind of person, what should in all justice be the lowest status person on earth; that’s exactly the people that the Left wants on its team. You can count on her extreme loyalty to any progressive idea that the party transmits to her. And so, yes, of course, she finally got her PhD, at New York University. And unlike 97% of PhD students out there, you can bet on her getting a full tenured professorship very soon.

FBI clearinghouse for ‘Dirty Information’.

Fusion GPS sent the phony Trump dossier to the FBI and then briefed the press. The press in turn claimed that this was “intelligence the FBI possessed” in order to give the dossier “credibility”. @KimStrassel explains of @TuckerCarlson

Affirmative Action…48 years later.

The Prophet of Affirmative Action

On June 9, 1969, California appellate judge Macklin Fleming, a Yale Law graduate, wrote a letter to Dean Louis Pollak questioning the wisdom of the new quota system.

From your remarks and those of Dean Poor, I understand that 43 black students have been admitted to next fall’s class, of whom 5 qualified under the regular standards and 38 did not. … You also said that the future policy of the Law School will be to admit 10 per cent of each entering class without regard to qualification under regular standards.
***

The immediate damage to the standards of Yale Law School needs no elaboration. But beyond this, it seems to me the admission policy adopted by the Law School faculty will serve to perpetuate the very ideas and prejudices it is designed to combat. If in a given class the great majority of the black students are at the bottom of the class, this factor is bound to instill, unconsciously at least, some sense of intellectual superiority among the white students and some sense of intellectual inferiority among the black students.

***

No one can be expected to accept an inferior status willingly. The black students, unable to compete on even terms in the study of law, inevitably will seek other means to achieve recognition and self-expression. This is likely to take two forms. First, agitation to change the environment from one in which they are unable to compete to one in which they can. Demands will be made for elimination of competition, reduction in standards of performance, adoption of courses of study which do not require intensive legal analysis, and recognition for academic credit of sociological activities which have only an indirect relationship to legal training.

Currently, the orientals in California, roughly 1 per cent of the population, comprise in some instances 30 per cent of the enrollment in certain engineering and technical schools. Were a quota system to be introduced in those schools in order to favor black and Mexican-American applicants, the first losers would be applicants from the presently disproportionately represented oriental group.

The point of the objection to AA should be that it doesn’t work and has been proven time and time again to be more detrimental to the Black students than anyone else.  Students shoved upwards into schools or programs that are beyond their ability or level of perpetration do not succeed.  It was to cover over this result that the lowering of standards and ‘grade inflation’ started.  The system that was in place before did a pretty good job of placing students into those colleges they were well suited for.  There unquestionably was race discrimination at the time that placed barriers to qualified non-white students getting into many colleges.  That issue could have been and should have been corrected without delay and comprehensively.  That is not what Affirmative Action did.

Affirmative Action put unprepared and unqualified students into programs they were not ready for.  And someone actually thought that this was a ‘Victory’.   To conceal the rate of failure, those traditional standards  of academic achievement that were in the way were either weakened or overridden.   If a structure has rot, don’t paint over the rot.  Because if you do, eventually the house will fall down.

Trump Returns to US With Over $250 Billion In Deals, China Is Calling It ‘A True Miracle’

President Trump has pulled off a financial miracle in China. He is returning with over $250 billion in business deals between our two countries. China thinks it is miraculous as well. On his final day in Beijing, Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping oversaw a ceremony in which corporate giants such as Boeing and Qualcomm signed multibillion-dollar deals. “This is truly a miracle,” China’s Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said at a news briefing in Beijing. I call that a thawing of relations and very positive.

Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t trust the Chinese. I never well. But it looks like Trump has found a middle ground of true compromise on a business level. The Chinese respect someone who knows how to deal and shows the proper respect and deference, while still being strong in his own right. Trump says that he is looking forward to a change in the U.S.-China relationship. “Discussing trade … knowing that the United States really has to change its policies because they’ve gotten so far behind on trade with China and frankly with many other countries,” he said.

Why the hell haven’t we elected a competent businessman as President before now?

Dirty, dirty politics.

Lifting the Steele Curtain. The Fusion GPS dossier was one of the dirtiest political tricks in U.S. history.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The Steele dossier has already become a thing of John le Carré-like intrigue—British spies, Kremlin agents, legal cutouts, hidden bank accounts. What all this obscures is the more immediate point: The dossier amounts to one of the dirtiest tricks in U.S. political history. It was perpetrated by Team Clinton and yielded a vast payoff for Hillary’s campaign.

The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign hired the opposition-research firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion in turn hired former U.K. spook Christopher Steele to assemble the (now largely discredited) dossier. That full dossier of allegations wasn’t made public until after the election, in January 2017. And the media and Democrats continue to peddle the line that it played no role during the election itself.

“Details from the dossier were not reported before Election Day,” ran a recent CNN story. Hillary Clinton herself stressed the point in a recent “Daily Show” appearance. The dossier, she said, is “part of what happens in a campaign where you get information that may or may not be useful and you try to make sure anything you put out in the public arena is accurate. So this thing didn’t come out until after the election, and it’s still being evaluated.”

This is utterly untrue. In British court documents Mr. Steele has acknowledged he briefed U.S. reporters about the dossier in September 2016. Those briefed included journalists from the New York Times , the Washington Post, Yahoo News and others. Mr. Steele, by his own admission (in an interview with Mother Jones), also gave his dossier in July 2016 to the FBI.
