Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal – New York Times

Once again Trump proves to be the pointless President. He’s nothing but a bag of hot air. All of the so-called breakthroughs from Friday’s announcement were already agreed upon months before. Nothing new here, move along.

There is a certain genius to the man’s madness. In the last month we have seen them with the royal family of Great Britain and the Emperor of Japan with all the pomp and circumstance that comes with this. Sure he made a fool of himself but his people will only see what they want to see and that’s a president being held across the world as a world leader. Their news does not include all the protests that followed him around the world. Their news seems to relish that he sticks his tongue out at world leaders. Lord, he even told Laura Ingraham that he was late for the D-Day activities so he could do the interview with her. Our fallen soldiers are not as important to him as a press opportunity with Trump TV.

He’s leaving a stain on the presidency that is going to be very difficult to remove.

U.S. and Mexico fail to reach border security deal days before Trump tariffs deadline – NBC News

What are negotiations if one side doesn’t come to the table in good faith? They are nothing but a waste of time and this this case it was a waste of time for the Mexican officials. This has nothing to do with immigration this has much to do with the fact that in a poll of polls of this week Trump’s approval rating has gone down by 5%. 5% in a week to the lot. So I’ll comes the tired idea of punishing theAmerican people with another terrace this time one from our biggest trading partner which will be a tax on all of us. Why are the American people being punished? It’s because Trump worries about his poll numbers and he thinks that his base will rally around him if he starts brandishing tariffs against the hated Mexicans.

So when choose henchman, Mike Pence came to the table he’s never had any intention of coming to a deal because his fearless leader had told him not to. This is what we have come to in the age of trump putting taxes on working Americans so that he can try to get himself re-elected by using some Boogeyman whether it be Muslims or those South of the border from the United States. It’s going to get uglier because that’s how this man fights and I send help good wishes to the universe for our country and its way of life because this man doesn’t care anything about it.

Foxconn: It’s Not Building Wisconsin Factory Despite getting $4 Billion Deal From Taxpayers

President Trump during the campaign said that the United States would be tired of all the winning that he would bring to the country. I am tired but it’s not because of the winning it’s because of all the losing. We put money out to these corporations and then one after the other day back down but keep the money. how about the carrier plant that he talked so much about when he was in transition. or the Ford factory, there’s no point in my going on and on.

He’s a terrible deal maker and everyone knows it except for him. Maybe he does know it and maybe Seth Meyers has something when he does that sticks about the small voice of insecurity in Trump’s head.

All I know is I’m tired of losing.

MSNBC’s Ali Velshi wishes for ‘English to English’ translation after Trump’s incoherent Mexico trade deal presser

Finally, somebody verbalized what I have been thinking forever. We need a translator whenever this man start stalking if you want to call it that.

Donald Trump and his incompetent White House cannot do anything correctly. I’m not sure if it was a trait being played on Trump by the outgoing president of Mexico or if it was in confidence, either way it’s sad. Sad…

U.S. Finalizes Deal to Give Israel $38 Billion in Military Aid, a record amount to any country – NYTimes.com

I applaud the Obama Administration and the US government for making this pledge to Israel. Israel is a stabilizing force in the Middle East. I hope this laid to rest forever the idea that President Obama has not been pro-israel. This is the largest amount do United States has ever pledged to any country in its history. This is a long-term 10-year deal. This is being done in the last few months of the Obama Administration. It would have been very easy for the Obama Administration to just not do anything. But it has taken a stand, I stand reinforcing America’s commitment to Israel and its continued survival. Congratulations to both prime minister Netanyahu and President Obama for coming to this agreement.

Trump: ‘Second Amendment people’ could deal with Clinton – CNN 

If something happens to Hillary Clinton Donald Trump should be held criminally liable. This is like someone screaming fire in the middle of a movie theater. He should know that his first amendment rights are not Unlimited. And to even make a suggestion that someone harm his opponent makes him ineligible to hold the office of President of the United States. I am so mad right now that I don’t know what else to say that wouldn’t be obscenities.

This is not funny anymore Donald Trump.

Sanders’s claim that Panama Free-Trade deal enabled more offshore tax scams is wrong – The Washington Post

Once again Senator Sanders fumbles when he’s not in his comfort zone attacking Wall Street or the big Banks.
“Senator Sanders argument that the Panama FTA would ‘effectively bar the United States from going after tax evaders in Panama’ is wrong,” said a joint statement by Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), the senior Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee and former senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.). Sanders “asserted that combating tax haven abuse in Panama would be a violation of the Panama FTA.  There are many flaws in this argument, but one is particularly obvious: the Panama FTA clearly states that ‘nothing in this Agreement shall apply to taxation measures.’”
To run for president one needs to do their homework. Senator Sanders making these statements that have no basis in fact is the Republican way of doing things.

The United States is a drug, and we just got Iran and Cuba hooked

image
This will put Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama in the history books

When we signed the trade agreement with China, they got hooked.
When we signed NAFTA, Mexico got hooked.
When the Soviet Union started to talk to us, they got hooked.
Cuba and Iran  now join the league of nations that are hooked on United States of America.
The culture of the United States is infectious. It’s aspirational to the rest of the world. And I am so tired of the naysayers saying that America is in at sunset years. We have a satellite the size of a grand piano orbiting Pluto all made in the USA. General Motors is about to launch a car next year that will get 200 miles on one charge and with the tax incentives will cost to consumer only $20,000!
The reason the ayatollahs sign this agreement is simply because seven thirty eight percent of the population of Iran wanted this Agreement signed. Having a ran as a frienenemy is much better than having them has a full flight enemy They want peace, and so should our leaders. Leaders who push for war or just pushing to maintain their coffers full of money from the military industrial complex.
