Financial Markets Soar

The markets are a picture of what the economy is and what it is expected to be. Company stock prices should reflect the present value of current and future earnings. The markets today have very high hopes of what is coming in the next few months, so much so, that the markets have reached heights never seen before.

Over the past two months, the DOW has gained back more than 7,000 points. The increase is record shattering as the DOW has never gone up more in a two month period.

On March 23rd  DOW 18,592

TODAY - JUNE 3

DOW 26269.89

All of this to deal with the Democrat Party having a rally in D.C.

82nd Airborne Division Arrives  

An 82nd Airborne Division’s Immediate Response Force battalion arrived to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland Monday evening for a civil unrest mission in the nation’s capitol, according to sources.

The IRF battalion — which deployed to Iraq earlier this year to quell Iran-backed violence — brought approximately 750 soldiers, ten Black Hawk helicopters, and four Chinooks. 

The aircraft are just one of the ways troops could be transported, but would give the IRF the ability to rapidly deploy to a number of locations in the D.C. Metro area quickly.

Riots and Fires and Urban Warfare .. and Lockdowns

President Trump walked from the White House across Lafayette Park to St John’s Church which was set on fire by protesters Sunday night. Trump held up a Bible in front of the church. He was joined by daughter Ivanka and several other administration officials. As one can imagine, some in the media were not happy. June 1, 2020

  "Most of you are weak"

Listen - President Trump Rips Into do-nothing Dem governors during conference call

***********.

"Had officer Chauvin the sense or the pity to take his knee off George Floyd’s neck before killing the man, we wouldn’t have riots and fires and urban warfare this weekend. But that doesn’t make Floyd’s killing the sole cause of this unrest."

The lockdown riots

"It seems impossible to deny that the lockdowns are a major cause of these once-in-a-generation nationwide protests"

As liberal writer and former Baltimore Sun reporter Alec MacGillis put it, “there's been a massive, unprecedented (since 1918) shock to society over the past two months. Of *course* it is shaping what is unfolding now, in a way that didn't happen in, say, 2015-16,” when other police killings happened.

Gallup in late April found that “the percentage of U.S. adults who evaluate their lives well enough to be considered ‘thriving’ has dropped to 46.4%, matching the low point measured in November 2008 during the Great Recession.”

The share of Americans feeling stress and worry jumped by 50% this Spring. Unemployment, idleness, and fear will do that. Millions of people are without work. Millions of young people are without school. Everybody’s bars, restaurants, and coffee shops are closed.

Cities have removed the rims from basketball courts and threatened fines for getting together with too many of your friends. In cities, which is where the rioters are concentrated, people — particularly minorities and non-affluent young adults — had to deal with the added hassle of social-distancing and mask-policing.

More laws, and more intrusive laws means more potential points of friction between law enforcement and the public, which in turn means more protests, more of which are likely to go south.

Basketball games were broken up. Philadelphia police dragged a man from a bus for not wearing a mask. New York police arrested and handcuffed a mother after she rejected police instructions to wear her mask properly.

For the police, the lockdowns and the virus have added new stresses. The NYPD said that death threats against police rose as they were charged with policing coronavirus rules. With courthouses closed, many police saw all the work they did effectively discarded.

Others resented being asked to police petty infractions of new and unclear rules issued by politicians who never intended for full enforcement of those rules. Finally, when the protestors took to the streets this week, their downtowns already looked like ghost towns.

The anxiety of no school, no pool, no work, no church, and no certainty about the future, combined with added tension with police amid lockdown rules, and suddenly the kindling was a lot dryer, allowing the spark to set off a blaze that is encompassing our whole country.

WALTZ - "Bring this supply chain back to America"

Representative Michael Waltz (R.CD-6) has introduced a bill to reduce U.S. dependence on the Chinese Communist Party for essential minerals used in electronics, healthcare, defense systems, renewable energy and other key sectors of American life. Of the 35 minerals rated by the United States Geological Survey as critical, 14 are imported at a rate of 100%.

Congressman Waltz stated, "As coronavirus has unfortunately demonstrated, if China can threaten to cut off our pharmaceutical supply, they can do the same with their supply of rare earth minerals. China currently has a stronghold on the supply of these natural resources.”

ANALYSIS -
The proposed legislation will help bring the supply chain back to American soil and reverse decades of terrible trade deals that left our manufacturing base in ruins, our workers unemployed and their jobs sent overseas. That seismic shift of wealth from the United States to foreign nations ended on January 20, 2017 with the inauguration of Donald Trump. His America First agenda had restored our economy, driving down unemployment numbers to historic lows. Then in presidential election year 2020 came the virus from China.
.
Whether the release of COVID-19 was deliberate or a mistake doesn't matter anymore. The damage is done and we've been hit hard. Now we must rebuild our economy. It's time to make America great again.

"This is how the Mueller probe was weaponized to mislead the American people"

The “Obstruction of Justice Trap” – Former AAG Matt Whitaker Confirms Mueller Probe Was Used As Weapon to Cover Coup Effort

Within an interesting interview conducted by Jan Jekielek of Epoch Times,

Former AAG Matt Whitaker confirms what CTH long suspected. The Mueller investigation was used by corrupt interests within the special counsel’s office to threaten any/all executive branch and congressional officials with “obstruction of justice” charges if they revealed any exculpatory or counter-narrative information during the Mueller probe.

.

Whitaker describes this as the “obstruction of justice trap.”

When We The People are no longer fearful .. petty tyrants no longer control U.S.

Face of Democrat Party - Michigan GovGretchen Whitmer

They represent us; WE are the people.

The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” When the people lead, the politicians are forced to follow. Without implied consent the municipal, state or federal government has no power. None.

Liberty is inherent. The removal of liberty requires consent.

Those who construct the systems of control need to weaponize fear. Fear of arrest; fear of losing a business; fear of losing liberty or financial security. Local, regional and state officials rely on fear. As soon as we the people are no longer fearful, the control ends.

It is the responsibility of each of us to stand, defiantly if needed, and support a President who is waging a battle against multiple adversaries on our behalf. 

Stand means be visible.  Stand means let your voice be heard. Stand means telling your republican representatives what your expectations are.

Democrat Governor Cooper hints that Republican National Convention might be limited ... due to China Virus

  

President Donald Trump said Tuesday night, June 2nd, that he is moving the Republican National Convention 

Charlotte Observer
***************

‘Within A Week’ — Trump Gives North Carolina Governor An Ultimatum On Republican National Convention

“It’s a massive expenditure, and we need to know. Within a week. Certainly we have to know. If he feels that he’s not going to do it, all he has to do is tell us and we will have to pick another location.”

Trump threatens to move RNC out of North Carolina

.Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena.
.
In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space.
.
Plans are being made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. They must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied.
If not, we will be reluctantly forced to find, with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!
8:12 AM · May 25, 2020
Vice President Mike Pence shared some more insight into Trump’s tweets about the possibility of moving the convention.

“It’s an issue we’ve been talking about because these national convection conventions literally take many months to organize and prepare, and you know, there are states around the country — we think of Texas, we think of Florida, Georgia --

.. the last two states I visited last week that have made tremendous progress on reopening their communities and reopening their economies, and I think the president is absolutely intent on ensuring that as we see our nation continue to make steady progress on putting the coronavirus epidemic in the past, that come this August, we’ll be able to come together in a safe and responsible venue and renominate President Donald trump for four more years,” Pence stated.

He continued, “But what you’re hearing the president say today is just a very reasonable request of the governor of North Carolina."

Memorial Day: Honor those who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces

In 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell was asked a somewhat long and involved question by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, which ended with the following interrogative:

“And would you not agree, as a very significant political figure in the United States, Colin, that America, at the present time, is in danger of relying too much upon the hard power and not enough upon building the trust from which the soft values, which of course all of our family life that actually at the bottom, when the bottom line is reached, is what makes human life valuable?”

In response to the former Archbishop’s question, Secretary Powell said this:

“There is nothing in American experience or in American political life or in our culture that suggests we want to use hard power. But what we have found over the decades is that unless you do have hard power — and here I think you’re referring to military power — then sometimes you are faced with situations that you can’t deal with.

It was not soft power that freed Europe. It was hard power. And what followed immediately after hard power? Did the United States ask for dominion over a single nation in Europe? No.

Soft power came in the Marshall Plan. Soft power came with American GIs who put their weapons down once the war was over and helped all those nations rebuild. We did the same thing in Japan.

So our record of living our values and letting our values be an inspiration to others I think is clear. And I don’t think I have anything to be ashamed of or apologize for with respect to what America has done for the world.

We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years ….and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in.”
