    I’m not going to pre-judge the meeting.
    Surely it is better to meet and talk, than not to meet.
    Clearly both leaders have the best interest of their own countries at heart.

    Re. Tariffs and trade…..
    Again I’m going to wait until I see the final result. I still believe Trump is trying to get to fair, low tariffs. He clearly had to shake things up to change the status quo.
    Obviously, competitors would not give up their advantages without being forced to.
    It will take many deals with many countries and that will not happen quickly.

    Reuters Editor Apologizes for Blaming Trump for Capital Gazette Shooting – Armstrong

    Reuters editor has had to apologize for blaming Trump for the Capital Gazette shooting. This reflects just how biased the press has become. They interject their personal opinions and hatred of Donald Trump and in the process create fake news. Once upon a time, journalists actually just reported the news. Something has seriously gone wrong with the media where they believe it is their RIGHT to engage in propaganda or to INFLUENCE people by indoctrinating them with their personal political philosophy. This is coming from both sides these days and the middle ground appears to have been a thing of the past. It did not take me long to investigate the reason for the shooting. Less than 5 minutes revealed this was a personal grudge. That is what you are suppose to do – INVESTIGATE before you speak.

    I think blaming “allies” for the troubles the U.S. is having is kind of a cop out.
    Not taking responsibility for their own actions.

    The corporations moved their manufacturing to cheaper labor nations.
    Americans loved it, they were jumping up and down for all the added profits they were seeing, all those big returns on their investments.

    Now they’ve realized the error of their ways and they blame “allies”.
    Other nations have taken advantage of the o so gullible americans.

    What a crock, the americans have been run by criminals,banks,mic,zionists,masons,drug gangs and anyone else that loved capatalism for decades.

    The americans should be shouting to their politicians to maybe cut military spending by 25% and repair the infrastructure,and everything else and employ..i dunno…everybody.

    But their focus and thoughts are scattered.

    Remember all those allies that take advantage of the U.S. are vassals, most have been pretty darn obedient vassals, the U.S. also has huge Israeli influence.

    Trump is the product of a failed democracy, people dont understand that yet.

    The peoples focus has been directed exactly as intended, google Edward Bernays, the american considered the father of propaganda, the word took on negative connotations when the nazis used the word so he changed it to public relations.

    Instead of focusing on those darn allies, people should be asking themselves why their leaders have done what they have to the states.

      Steven Rowlandson says:

      The allies are in fact nations in their own right WW 2 not withstanding and they have the same problem the American government has. The real problem is that the american government is not operating as a sovereign independent government. It has been captured by PC special interest groups and has become a vassal to them. Nice groups like criminals,banks,mic,Zionists,masons,drug gangs, satanists, world Jewry, LGBTQ types, globalists and anyone else who can get away with bribing politicians and telling them what to do. This is the swamp that needs to be drained.
      America needs to be liberated from a oligarchy and restored to what it was meant to be.

      Your point written above and the point that we have made repeatedly about the President need to be emphasized until all people are aware of it.

      Thank you for stressing it in your comment.

      “Trump is a product of a failed democracy” is exactly why he was elected. He realized that our country is failing dramatically and he proposed to do something about it. So far, I think that he is pretty successful.

        Unfortunately, as Alexander Tyler pointed just before the writing of the US Constitution ALL democracies fail.
        Usually in a couple of hundred years as politicians realize they can gain power by allowing the people to vote for themselves increasing free stuff.
        (Unfortunately, nothing is really free; it is merely a enforced transfer of cost.)
        Then Tyler goes on to explain how things progress through dictators and wars until the cycle repeats.
        Our Founding Fathers recognized this and tried to separate powers between the legislature, the executive and the judiciary, and also between the federal government and the states, and establish a representative Republic. Alas, politicians have destroyed this over the years.
        We need an article 5 convention to get term limits for many federal employees, including limitations on the judiciary and the federal government.

          The Mythical Alexander Tyler and His Theory of Democracy
          By Gary North

          October 21, 2006

          At about the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in the year 1787, Alexander Tyler (a Scottish history professor at The University of Edinborough) had this to say about “The Fall of The Athenian Republic” some 2,000 years prior:

          A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

          The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

          From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.

          CFS: And those that forget history often repeat the same mistakes.
          (Acknowledging Sam Clemens, of course.)

            Just for the record, I believe Gary North is incorrect about “mythical”

            In fact, the sister of Dr Tyler (or Tytler) was living near Philadelphia at the time of the writing of the U.S. constitution. Her status in society almost certainly would have made her known to some of the founding fathers. Just because there is no actual evidence of Tyler’s influence, does not mean it did not exist.
            It is always what you don’t know you don’t know that gets you in the end.

        or should I say got people to vote for him?(votes dont count)
        Thats part of it anyway, I doubt he gets elected if tptb didnt want him to be Pres.

        Absolutely correct RW, but the states has vassal, and the states answers to Israel, sure the mic has influence etc but its Israel that gets american kids to die, has them bomb whomever they wish and Trump is bombing more than Obama and Bush combined.
        That should tell people something.

        Who owns Israel? Thats the puppet masters.

        imo Trump is just another puppet.

    But in the real world in which Trump lives, there are many factions that lie, many that spread mkis-information, and many that seek to reward themselves at the expense of others.
    So trump is forced to tweet, because he cannot trust the main stream media to report accurately.
    He is forced to fight propaganda and lies. He knows he is under constant attack and opposition. That IS reality, however, some, maybe most of the general public recognize the truth when they see it.

      Nothing is ever free. It appears so only because it comes at the expense of a forced transfer of money, by power of the State. Unfortunately such transfers ALWAYS induce a decrease in production as resources are transferred from higher utilization to lower. THE COUNTRY SLOWLY BECOMES POORER RELATIVE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.

    What do you think about the comment that the EU was formed to retaliate (my words) against the U.S. I would put it differently and say that the EU was formed to create an entity that would approach the U.S. in terms of power. (Is that true in your opinion? And, if it is true is that really a bad thing? If a person takes Trump’s words at face value, I believe that the impression one would get is exactly what the soon to be former Ambassador to Estonia said.

      “the EU was formed to create an entity that would approach the U.S. in terms of power.”

      Seems reasonable, but there was more than JUST that going on in the minds of the founders:


      “Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi (November 16, 1894 – July 27, 1972) was an Austrian-Japanese politician, philosopher, and Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi. The pioneer of European integration, he served as the founding president of the Paneuropean Union for 49 years, which would be the preliminary ideological foundation of the European Union.

      In his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism), written in 1925, he describes the future of Jews in Europe and of European racial composition with the following words:[45]

      The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. […]

      Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation.”

    Trump know he was elected because Hillary was corrupt and most of the US citizens recognized that.

    Trump will not be taken in by Putin. He knows Putin is a corrupt oligarch, who acts on behalf of what is best for Russia.

    What has NATO done recently to help the US? (except cost more than a fair share)

    Crimea was occupied by the Soviet Union and has been friendly towards Russia in recent times. AND (if votes mean anything in Ukraine/Crimea) voted in favor of Russia, despite the US intervening in that Ukraine election. And the US (Victoria Nuland) boasted about it’s intervention.

    Keynesian Economics Is an Artifact of Cheap Energy
    July 2, 2018

    “Printing / borrowing money to generate the unsustainable illusion of “growth” sets up the collapse of the entire Keynesian edifice.”

    “The reality is that Keynesianism arose in an era of abundant cheap energy, and it is an artifact of that brief one-off period in which industrialization, consumption and the human population were able to expand by leaps and bounds due to cheap energy and new technologies that leveraged greater value (“work,” output) from the cheap energy.”

    “Once energy is no longer cheap or abundant, the Keynesian model of paying people to dig holes and fill them as a means of boosting “aggregate demand” falls apart. ”

However, his Manifesto borrowed so heavily from a book written by Clinton Roosevelt, The Science of Government Founded on Natural Law, published in 1841, which Marx was introduced to at a Reading Room of the British Museum, that it was close to plagiarism. Author Emanuel M. Josephson even called Science, “Roosevelt’s Communist Manifesto”. What a coincidence Clinton Roosevelt is related to 2 of the 3 early progressive presidents, Teddy and Franklin.”

      Concerning cheap energy, maybe the most useful concept I have coming across for trying to understand our energy future is Energy Return on Energy Invested, EROEI, or sometimes written EROI. If I recall Charles Halls conclusions correctly, modern US society requires energy with a minimum EROEI of about 11. Oil a century ago had an EROEI of about 100, but new discoveries are low and declining. (Sorry, I forget the actual numbers for this one, which is a key point, and I don’t feel like searching it out just now.) Industrial agriculture has and EROEI of something like 0.1, while permaculture may achieve and EROEI of 10 or sometimes more.


      What do doubters of peak oil have to say about declining EROEI? Do nuclear or renewables achieve EROEI of 11 or better?

The irritating aspect of it is that the vast majority are also incapable of even imagining how perfect a scam the climate change agenda could be, and how much powerful interests could benefit from it.

        How many cases of fraudulent science related to Climate Change have come to light? The True Believers view these scandals as pesky nuisances to be disregarded. Corruption only counts for them when it goes against their gospel.

(A crime has to be charged, normally, and even then attorney-client protection is only breachable under extreme situations, buy extreme judges.)
