Quotation Of The Day (Video Addendum)

[cross-posted to Infidel Bloggers Alliance]

A comment found on blog rounds the morning after the Mueller Investigation was concluded and a comment which sums up my own thoughts....

Commenter LL's evaluation as stated at Lone Star Parson:

Mueller, in the end, after making his retirement money (for himself and his cronies), and lacking ANY evidence, finally folded his tent and the aspirations of the Deep State and the Corrupt Media are weeping (more) bitter tears. The Russia collusion narrative is dead even though pawns like Adam Schiff (D-CA) will continue to beat the drum because it's the only drum they have.

Russia, military in decline, reduced to a regional power with a nuclear arsenal, is doing its best to follow a Russia First agenda, and why shouldn't they? China is having some money problems but it's still promoting its belt road agenda, and the US is energy and food independent, steel industry back in business.

President Trump has revealed disastrous trade deals with China, Japan, Korea and Europe is re-mapping how business is to be done and the Deep State trembles. All that money in bribes stopped. All those plans to weaken the US have been put on hold. Such a pity -- all that plotting, waiting and hoping that somebody like Beto or the fake Indian will capture the imagination of the voters. Somebody who can read the message of his/her handlers from a teleprompter the way that Barack did.


Last year, one of my clients, a dyed-in-the-wool member of the Democrat Party, said to me, with feigned sorrow, "I'm sorry. But Trump is going to be removed from office."  You see, she really believed the drumbeat she heard every day on MSNBC and The View.

And there are millions more like my former client.

I wonder....How long before more screaming at the sky commences?

Let the nervous breakdowns begin!

  1. I remember LL from the good old day back when I was blogging. He always has a good take on any situation.

    Democrats will keep beating that drum, and now their hopes shift to the vindictive and out-of-control prostitutors at SDNY.

    1. LL seems to have drunk the Trump kool aid regarding the economy:

      The largest monthly deficit in history was jut announced.
      The yield curve just inverted (very reliable recession indicator)
      The vaunted growth in industrial employment isn't nearly keeping up with population growth.

      Now some of this is a natural result of the business cycle (primarily the inverted yield) but you have to ask yourself how well a primitive mercantilist like Trump can mange a tricky situation.

      Meanwhile it might be best to avoid an premature victory lap. The verdict on obstruction of justice is inconclusive and the house is still actively seeking his tax records and leverage by Russian oligarchs.

      Meanwhile how has he MAGA?

    2. If Ducky relies on economists as a source of information, then he ought to know that economists are incapable of forecasting recessions, and nine out of ten fail to understand when they’ve happened in real time. In fact, studies of economic forecasts have demonstrated that economists have an almost unblemished record of missing downturns in economic activity —this is because they rely on data that are useless in real time. Recessions are marked by a persistent, broad-based and sharp downturn in output, income, and employment; they generally occur every ten or so years, excepting the housing bubble disaster that was predicated on the incompetence (or corruption) of the Democratic Party 2007-2009, which, as one might recall, controlled both houses of Congress. Nice try, though.

      If you don’t think Mueller pulled Trump’s tax records, then I have a bridge for sale in Hoboken. Meanwhile, whether Trump obstructed justice only matters after an indictment (politically), and upon conviction (legally). Until that happens, he’s an innocent man. That’s how the law works in America, although admittedly, it does work a bit differently in Ducky’s favorite place: Russia. Maybe we should demand a probe into Ducky’s ties to Russia; he seems awfully fond of the way things are done there.

    5. SF,
      No worries! Most of the Dems will try to continue down that trail.

      Meanwhile, Americans are watching this three-ring circus called "the Democrat Party."

      Delete
    6. Mustang, an inverted yield curve is one of the most consistent indicators of a pending downturn, so hold off on the lecture.

      It's one thing to be cautious about economic indicators but quite another to stick your fingers in your ears and hum, "Trump, MAGA"

    7. So mustang, do you accept the premise that the steel industry has revived? What I've read is that employment is flat and industry stock price are down multiples of the wider market. What's the truth?

      Also Wisconsin dairy farmer are backing a new price support proposal to keep them in business. I thought the master negotiator settled all that through Canadian tariffs which were supposed to fix it all the way his soybean tariffs were so successful. Comments or crickets?

    8. I’m not sure why you would want to discuss the steel industry. It has been in the dumps since the 1970’s. There are reasons for this, of course, not the least of which is the dumping of foreign steel, the cost of US labor, and costs associated with conforming to Obama-era regulations. Presently, there are eleven mills operating in the US, but then we have the emergence of the so-called mini-mills. I understand there are around 113 of these that produce around 20% of total US steel production. But to answer your question, the steel industry has not recovered from the 1970’s and early 1980’s. How could it? I’m no fan of tariffs, but in the case of steel, choices are limited. If it is true that we want to see more Americans working in the steel industry, then this industry requires a level playing field. Consumers will always purchase the most cost-effective product for their operations. Without tariffs, then that means consumers will always purchase high-quality foreign made steel over the same quality of goods produced domestically. So then if MAGA man wants to help the steel industry, there not being many options available to him, then a tariff on foreign steel makes sense. I know literally nothing about dairy ... not sure why Canadian dairy products should be substantially cheaper than US goods ... so for this topic, you get crickets.

    9. Chinese steel overcapacity is falling... a good thing worldwide for steel. I understand it's only 8 times China's national need vice 10 times now...

      Delete
    10. From 2000 to 2014, China’s steelmaking capacity4 and production5 increased dramatically. (See Figure 1)6 Over that time, China went from having roughly the same annual steelmaking capacity as the United States to 1.2 billion tons of capacity, or 10 times that of the U.S.7 In fact, China accounted for more than 75 percent of global steelmaking capacity growth, and last year China’s steelmaking capacity exceeded that of the United States, European Union, Japan, and Russia combined, according to the U.S. Trade Representative.8 This growth has been far beyond what Chinese domestic and international demand requires, and the Chinese government has been pledging to curb this rampant overcapacity since 2007.

  4. Here's what we'll be hearing from the leftwing screamers in Batshiteville:

    * The President was "Not Exonerated." That is a propaganda canard. The legal system does not "exonerate" people. It weighs the facts and declares guilty or not guilty, or in cases like this, decides there is not enough evidence to go for a prosecution.

    * "Release the Entire Report to the Public!!!" Impossible. That report contains classified counter-intel information that can never be released to the public.

    The democrat propaganda machine knows it is spewing BS and bleeding out crankcase oil, but it will continue. It will be fun watching deranged Democrats put the pedal to the floor and do a Thelma and Louise.

    Let that sink in. It's important!

    There was not EVIDENCE for obstruction of justice. Hinckies? I guess so. But hinckies are NOT evidence!

      Exoneration occurs when the conviction for a crime is reversed, either through demonstration of innocence, a flaw in the conviction, or otherwise.

    Isn't that an egregious obstruction of Justice? In a word. No.

    Although craven, un-American, and providing aid and comfort to our enemies, it is not against the law for a president to make such a decision.

    9. Matt Taibbi also slammed the whole circus as a sham. The press would do well to listen to Taibbi and Greenwald. They are the rare people in the press who care more about integrity of the information than scoring propaganda points, and Taibbi is a very effective writer for the liberal cause, and note to other writers: He does it without lying or spreading kook conspiracy theories.

  14. tl;dr - Mueller farmed out some process crimes to lower courts with no security clearances, i.e. still nothing to do with foreign collusion or Trump.
