As I stated before, the US can alter their supply lines/chains. Today, the Wall Street Journal reports just that.

US manufacturers are shifting production to countries outside of China.

Good for the US, even worse for China.

Why are some politicians totally negative and openly hate the Jews?
Why are you asking me, and what does your question have to do with my post?
Do you actually think these four women are good for the US? How can anyone even try to defend them? You like to throw the word racist around and ignore what kind of people they actually are. God help the democrats if that is the kind of people being elected. Being a popular democrat means hating Trump. It is truly disgusting hearing the childish names you people come up with.
I really don't understand where you are coming from, glalt.

You ask me why politicians hate the Jews - I have no idea of why you asked ME, but instead of telling me, you go off on another tangent.

And then accuse me of "throwing the word racist" around, when I have used it only once since the beginning of this year, and that was in relation to Netanyahu. I have, up till now, held back from accusing Trump of being racist, and I am still making up my mind.

But while the weekend tweets from the BOB against The Squad were certainly racist - which is understood by all but the most obtuse - I suspect his motives were more political ie to try and wedge the Dems congressional leadership against the 4.

But to answer your question - I think The Squad are good for the US. In their own way, I believe they are less radical than the BOB, and provide a damning mirror to the cowering, simpering Republicans who have abandoned their own principles and decency at the alter of Trump. =D>
Never mind. I am not going to change your hatred of Trump and you are not going to change my mind about what is best for my country.

Internal Democrat Poll with bad news for Omar & Company.

The internal poll was reported on by Axios. Oc-Co Loco has succeeded as labeling herself as the face of Democrats. She is voting-year poison.

Poll Results
Oc-Co Loco has 74% name recognition. 22% favorable.
Omar has 53% name recognition. 9% favorable.
Capitalism 56% favorable.

According to a top Democrat commenting on the poll, "Socialism is toxic to voters."

It looks like this internal poll is what caused Pelosi to try to silence them. They fight to the death on every socialist and anti-America hill.

I think it's fantastic for a country to have members of its legislature who were born abroad. I would hope my country has dozens of them and I suspect we do. I don't even care if they maintain citizenship in another country.

I do care about foreign governments interfering in our elections if they do that. Voters need to know about that and it should be deterred as much as reasonably possible.

.

Maureen Dowd is a LIB to her core. She writes for the NY Times. She unloaded on Oc-Co Loco in her latest column, and it looks as though the honeymoon is over for the socialist from NY.
Pelosi told me, after the A.O.C. Squad voted against the House’s version of the border bill and trashed the moderates -- the very people who provided the Democrats the majority -- that the Squad was four people with four votes. She was talking about a legislative reality. If it was a knock, it was for abandoning the party.

That did not merit A.O.C.’s outrageous accusation that Pelosi was targeting “newly elected women of color.” She slimed the speaker, who has spent her life fighting for the downtrodden and who was instrumental in getting the first African-American president elected and passing his agenda against all odds, as a sexist and a racist.

. . .

A.O.C. should consider the possibility that people who disagree with her do not disagree with her color.

The young lawmaker went further, implying that the speaker was putting the Squad in danger, asking why Pelosi would criticize them, “knowing the amount of death threats” and attention they get. Huh?

A.O.C. pulled back and said she wasn’t calling Pelosi a racist. But once you start that ball rolling, it’s hard to stop....

....

And then there’s the real instigator, Saikat Chakrabarti, A.O.C.’s 33-year-old chief of staff, who co-founded Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress, both of which recruited progressives -- including A.O.C. -- to run against moderates in Democratic primaries.

. . .

The progressives act as though anyone who dares disagree with them is bad. Not wrong, but bad, guilty of some human failing, some impurity that is a moral evil that justifies their venom.

Chakrabarti sent shock waves through the Democratic caucus when he posted a tweet about the border bill comparing moderate and Blue Dog Democrats -- some of whom are black -- to Southern segregationists in the ’40s.

Rahm Emanuel told me Chakrabarti is “a snot-nosed punk” who has no idea about the battle scars Pelosi bears from the liberal fights she has led.


. . .

In the age of Trump, there is no more stupid proposition than that Nancy Pelosi is the problem. If A.O.C. and her Pygmalions and acolytes decide that burning down the House is more important than deposing Trump, they will be left with a racist backward president and the emotional satisfaction of their own purity.
In other words, Oc-Co Loco is cancer for the Democrats, and her three sycophants are quadrupling down on their anti-American rhetoric, lies and antisemitism. As polls have shown, these four destroyers are seen as the face of the party by Independent voters -- and Independent voters decide national elections.

Trump has now forced the Democrat leadership to defend the anti-American and antisemitic rhetoric of their members. Pelosi is now calling for a resolution against Trump for xenophobic comments -- that weren't xenophobic. It wasn't that long ago that Democrats refused to call down Ilhan Omar for her antisemitic attacks.

Trump has this fantastic ability to get political enemies to own their demons.

USMCA Trade with Mexico and Canada

Even though all of the agreement is complete, the Democrat Speaker in the House has not brought the agreement to the floor of the House for a vote BECAUSE TRUMP.

I doubt that it will ever be brought to the floor for a vote.

There's been a change in the Chinese staffing of their trade negotiating team.

Commerce Minister Zhong Shan has now been assigned to keep Liu He from giving away too much of the farm.

This means that even though the negotiations have continued where they left off, this is probably all just a show.

If I had to bet based only on the small amounts of information that is known that the trade war will probably continue up to and beyond the election. Xi is betting on a weak Dem in the White House.

Well, one might say that the remarks weren't really xenophobic because they (or three of them) are not actually from other countries. But, of course, Trump didn't know that.

Ignorant liberal emotional basket cases doing what they do. The idea that they're members of Congress should serve as a warning to normal Americans that the dingbat lunatic fringe is getting out of control.

They need a good antifa-style beatdown.
