Contrary to the current narrative, China has been instrumental in keeping the US economy viable for the middle class. As our economy has stagnated or collapsed for Middle America, China continues to produce goods for consumption in the US that helps to maintain our lifestyle. The narrative is that China stole our good paying manufacturing jobs. And this is true just looking at the data. Most of our retail goods today are made in China.
President Trump's tax reform plan was only one page long, and thus short on details, but a quick run-down of today's news stories will give you an idea of what it means.
Donald Trump has done something a normal person would never do (although admittedly POTUS is not normal). It is something he would never do after playing golf at Mar-A-Lago, such as lose a golfball in the rough. No the Trumposaurus has now done something that boggles the imagination--even considering it's Trump who did it.
What did he lose? The the USS Carl Vinson.
Even the most ardent Trump-haters have to admit that DJT has his work cut out for him, in part thanks to the die-hard Trump-haters. One of his campaign promises was to wipe-out ISIS. Many campaign promises were made but two of the most important were to end ISIS and start no more new wars--perhaps ending old one's inspired by Obama-Klinton-Soros.
Trump's missile strike hasn't made a lot of sense as something directed at Russia or Syria, minimally damaging as it was. Or as a message worth the blowback, to placate the neocons - they'll never be satisfied until we've annihilated ourselves.
So here's another interpretation, from Ilargi:
Big Al just published a remarkable essay: about the fifth anniversary of the Syrian War. Not only is the essay itself quite good but most of the commentary is very informative. The variety of sources relied upon by the community is remarkable.
I'm thinking the CIA's fingerprints are all over this. False flag operations are their specialty. I'm talking about not just their presence on the ground in Syria, but also their key people in our MSM empires.
Rice comes in all varieties, including black, also known as Imperial rice.
