Phase-2 MAGAnomic Policy –
NEC Director Gary Cohn
Departs Administration…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/7/2018 7:18:12 AM

There will obviously be another media cycle decrying crisis at the White House with the announcement that National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn is departing. However, for those who follow the administration closely, this was a foregone conclusion; the MAGAnomic “America First” policy has a specifically timed exit ramp for just this purpose.We have previously outlined the relationship between President Trump and Gary Cohn HERE – Along with what each of them brings to the perspectives of the other. In addition, the larger Trump economic policy always held two distinct aspects: The financial aspects – taxes and monetary policy stability; or perhaps

Looking forward to phase 2. The U.S. does not have free trade, and trade re-balancing issues need to be addressed. There are a lot of big businesses invested in the present system through government lobbying and acquiring favorable government policies. That is government intervention, not free trade. Let´s go back to free trade, where it is the market doing the trade balancing, and not government intervention.

This is how you negotiate.
You start off with a high opening bid: we will impose tariffs. Then you propose coming to the table to talk.
Some will come, some will not (China).
Those who do not, and also those who have been subsidizing their goods, will lose.
Others who will negotiate will win.
What is so hard about that?

Haha, love the animals at the end!

Yes, I have deep enduring respect for Wilbur Ross. Had I heeded his warning during an interview on CNBC back in 2007, I would be much wealthier today. It was then he warned of something wrong in the market and that he was taking all his money off the table and putting it into cash. The man is nothing less than amazing. Even smart men, like T. Boone Pickens, got burned in 2008.

Wilbur Ross is a legend, and it´s rare to have legends in political appointee positions.

I had always worried about Cohn anyway. Goldman-Sachs CEO, not someone I trust out of my sight. Too much connection and belief in the giant transnational companies and their manipulation of the world markets in goods for their benefit, to the harm of America and American workers.

Good news, IMO.

Let Cohn go back to Goldman Sachs. The slice they have been taking for dictating our Economic Policy both Domestically and in Foreign Trade has been at the expense of the average American worker. His job of bring ing Wall Street along is done for now.

On to ´Fair Trade´ policy with our Import/Export Policy. I´d say DJT appears to know what he is doing.

Cohn achieved what he was brought onboard to do: the tax plan.

Why the “worry” about him? He had his own views on other issues and was perhaps too public with them, but he did more good than harm.

We need to take our own advice and not get sucked into the media’s need to natter about anti-Trump trivia.

Cohn’s leaving was expected. Preprogrammed. He is not leaving an empty slot. Wilbur Ross has been running the show. Mnuchin is there.

Curious Releases – FBI Provides “Initial”

Due to the ongoing and unresolved scale of corruption within the administrative offices of the DOJ (Sessions/Rosenstein) and FBI (Wray/Bowdich), it is no longer possible to provide any benefit-of-doubt regarding their obstruction of oversight. The IG report; the manipulation (red-lining) of the draft content therein; and the subsequent DOJ/FBI willful blindness toward the remaining content; affords no leniency toward motive. In essence, if we are to honestly call the baby ugly, we are also to admit: there is an ongoing and institutional cover-up taking place. Yes, even by Trump officials.In the latest development(s); and against the

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

The crying girl featured in an audio-recording touted by pro-migrant groups was brought to the United States by her mother to escape the poverty of her quiet El Salvador town, according to a Washington Post report. The Post‘s report shows the migrant mother was not fleeing threats and had no grounds for claiming asylum, but was simply following the route taken by her two older sisters who had successfully walked though the weak U.S. border to settle in Houston, Texas. “The standard of living in is higher in the United States for the vast majority in the world, and if poverty becomes the basis for allowing people to immigrate,

Years of questions about how so many DC scandals never ended up with any accountability are now slowly beginning to make sense. Henry Kerner is a missing piece of a very frustrating puzzle…Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, we now find a name at the very heart of some of the most controversial investigative collapses in modern political history. The same John McCain staffer who told the IRS to weaponize their database to target Tea Party groups, was intimately involved in Fast-and-Furious, Benghazi, IRS and now -under the Trump administration- “Spygate”.

For the afflicted, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is plumbing new depths during their secular Roman holiday known as “Because Trump!” Through the hateful hysteria, a discerning media entrepreneur can smell an audience. But, like so many fads before it, how long will the market last for TDS? It can only end with the end of Trump, which the TDS afflicted know must be just around the corner . . . Yet, if the past is any guide, Trump’s undoing is not easily done. Like Wile E. Coyote chasing the Road Runner, the TDS afflicted are sure their next mail order Acme anvil

Forty-one House Republicans voted against a bill Friday that would have secured funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall, addressed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and included E-verify, among other conservative provisions. Members voted on an amended version of GOP Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Michael McCaul of Texas’s bill that provided more border security funding, only granted DACA recipients a temporary protected three-year legal status with no pathway for citizenship — which moderate Republicans are fervently asking leadership to provide — and included other features. The bill failed in the House in a 193-231 vote Thursday.

The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according to ICE. TIME Magazine pasted the image of the young girl crying as President Donald Trump looked down on her, attempting to symbolize the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy at the border that leads to family separations. The father of the child later revealed that the girl was never separated from the mother and that the child was only briefly set down so that border patrol agents could perform a pat down. The mother also left three other children behind

In the media’s rush to exploit the plight of migrant children this week, the public testimony of Michael Horowitz has been buried or, more likely, ignored by the news media.(Snip)But one reason Horowitz might have punted in his recent report is because he knows the real bombshells are yet to come: He is investigating the FISA warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page; the cozy relationship between Justice and FBI officials and the media, including perks for scoops; ex-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of classified information; and the potential doctoring of official documents. “We’ve got lots of investigations going on,” Horowitz

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs.
