the liberal world order has been in place since WW2 ended.

fascists oppose & detest the liberal world order where all countries work together in peace.

all these trade wars and tariffs are headed by the new world fascist order which wants to destroy the liberal world order thats been in place since WW2.

the new world fascist order is headed by Vlad Putin.

and Trump works for Vlad Putin.
and anyone who says it isnt true is either completely blind & in denial or they are evil fascists who are working with Trump & Putin.

liberal world order = peace & cooperation. with a foundation of justice.

fascist world order = war & division. with a foundation of corruption.

Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties. Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party—to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society. Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation. Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky (national economic self-sufficiency) through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.

It's no different now as far as i can tell. Just a bunch of distribution jobs distributing Chinese goods. The quality American manufacturing jobs are few and far between and sell products so expensive most cant afford them.

Also these jobs that are available are always made up of hispanics , 75%

I bet if you pulled up the data on his city, people are out shopping, the stock market is up etc. etc. etc., but half the city should have declared bankruptcy...years ago.

It's all just a cheap money kick the can down the road, consumption-driven economy.

Lastly, Trump didn't create the shale oil fields. BHO did. The vast majority of them went bankrupt when gas fell to $35 and that debt was then passed onto the banks, which was then, added to the national debt.

E.G. The shale bubble was a massive debt distortion in the economy, a very big one. It just got swept under the rug into the everything bubble. That Trump has now taken credit for.

Re: Tariffs on Chinese goods! Are all of you fucking stupid???
This hate China campaign is basically about maintaining American military and technological superiority.

America doesn't want any competition in military and technology from any other country for fear of losing number one status and losing the power to negotiate by bullying.

China is looked as threat By Americans cause China has the human resources or intelligence to advance technologically and militarily very far forward. Even now, American telecom companies are unable to compete against HuaWei in the 5G tech of which HuaWei carves out 15% of the patents. Those steering policy in America see that China is developing rapidly in artificial intelligence which can be used for military technology.

So, this tariff war is nothing but an effort to stunt China's advance in technology. It's not only about tariff, but boycotting the selling of Microprocessors making machines to Chinese companies to delay China's advance. I bet the American policy makers are thinking hard in relocating America manufacturing companies in China to other countries. And if other countries can produce what China can produce, America could be buying from them instead of buying from China just to weaken China.

The so call developing American own companies is simply secondary to the real purpose of this tariff war, to stunt China's rapid development. If there's any other country rapidly developing the same as China, America will be having trade war with that country.

It's about maintaining America number one status where America can control every other countries in this world. And this effort to maintain number one status through oppression /subversion and war (trade or real) instead of developing America's own human resources, will eventually fail.

Yup, there might be some pain involved. Yes, there will be some economic impact. That's the price we NOW have to pay that could have been paid for a lot less years ago.

Ask yourself this: What impact would it have if the Chinese, for the hell of it, simply said "we will sell/ship NOTHING to the US as part of our decision to embargo the capitalist pigs."

You're right. The USA needs to remain a service economy where nothing is made here and everything is imported. We can maintain our standard of living by selling each other hamburgers, Chinese-made spatulas paying $20 for Vietnamese pedicures.

I would gladly pay more for US made items if I could ever find them. Short term pain for long term gain. Suck it up. The additional money you will be spending will be going into the pocket of an American and staying in the US. But, if you'd rather not pay the tarriff, DON'T BUY CHINESE SHIT!!!

He mentions "talks" of steel mills and auto manufacturing. If it happens, it will be a small operation making expensive products with limited range. And, again, IF it happens.

A few new grocery stores opened up. Wow.

The tariffs are on Chinese goods, not all goods. The Chinese tariff will open the market for other importers who have also been handicapped by China's unfair trade practices. Maybe products from Mexico or South America. Maybe their economies will improve so they all won't have to migrate here. China's practices have had far-reaching effects, not just on the US but developing nations as well.
