How Trump will make America great again

If you relied only on the Associated Press account of Trump's speech in Monessen, Pennsylvania, you would have yawned. Jill Colvin covers Trump as if she were paid by Hillary.

The media has cried and whined about Trump not giving details of his plans

From Trump:
Here are 7 steps I would pursue right away to bring back our jobs.
One: I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has not yet been ratified.
Two: I'm going to appoint the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.
Three: I'm going to direct the Secretary of Commerce to identify every violation of trade agreements a foreign country is currently using to harm our workers. I will then direct all appropriate agencies to use every tool under American and international law to end these abuses.
Four: I'm going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. And I don't mean just a little bit better, I mean a lot better. If they do not agree to a renegotiation, then I will submit notice under Article 2205 of the NAFTA agreement that America intends to withdraw from the deal.
Five: I am going to instruct my Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator. Any country that devalues their currency in order to take advantage of the United States will be met with sharply
Six: I am going to instruct the U.S. Trade Representative to bring trade cases against China, both in this country and at the WTO. China's unfair subsidy behavior is prohibited by the terms of its entrance to the WTO, and I intend to enforce those rules.
Seven: If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.
That is awesome. It may not bring the factory jobs back, but it is better than the free tampons (seriously, she wants to make menstrual products "affordable") his opponent promises.


  1. DJT is just KILLING IT right now. And others around the world are applauding. Finally, the USA has a leader again. The more the Libs scream, the bigger the smile on my face. They be skeered.

    1. I mentioned before about how the COO of the monastic estate which controls sixty percent of the local economy directly asked me about Trump, asking whether I was afraid that he might do something drastic. She has utter fear in her eyes when she asked me that. I said I'd be disappointed if he didn't do something drastic. I'm beginning to wonder if she doesn't see another Henry VIII in her future.

  2. I have a dream.

    I have a dream that, before the year is out, Hillary Clinton will be muttering, Wally Binghamton style, about how "someone up there hates me!"

    The dream gets a little confused after that, but for some reason, Don, you're wearing Ensign Parker's uniform.

    1. No, Wally always said, "I could just scream!".

  3. "unfair subsidy behavior"...."currency manipulation"... Trump just went over the head of 99% of hilliary's mouthbreathing supporters. They know "free stuff" and anything beyond that, they start drooling and catching flies. Maybe Lie-a-watha can get out there and tell us that capitalists steal money. Time for your afternoon nap Fauxcohontas. Maybe you and grandma hill can see if they still sell Geritol?

  4. Close the Southern border, enforce current immigration law including deportation of all illegals and build and patrol the wall.

    I started to make a wish list, but if Trump can do just that, he will be a huge success and go a long way toward rescuing the country.

  5. Smokestack industry of the Civil War-WWII era is gone, but there are a lot more things coming along.

    Trump wants to make them happen. Everybody else wants us to be peons.

  6. Given the technological and manufacturing prowess of the US, together with its huge underutilized, educated labor force, there is no reason why America cannot be the equivalent of 50 x [Switzerland + Israel] when it comes to exporting high value goods to the rest of the world. President Trump needs to shake the torpid federal Commerce Department to its core and transform it from the 19th Century into the 21st Century.

  7. I've just read the full text of DJT's speech. That's one damned fine bit of eloquent speechifying, if you ask me. Lots of memorable lines, more in that one speech than in all the rambling, incoherent, self-contradicting public utterances in the past 7.5 years of President Zero.

    There is, however, one error I found in Donald's speech. Here it is:

    "From 1947 to 2001 - a span of over five decades - our inflation-adjusted gross domestic product grew at a rate of 3.5%. However, since 2002 - the year after we fully opened our markets to Chinese imports - that GDP growth rate has been cut almost in half."

    What's the error? Well, the US GDP figures for the years 2006-2015 are about to be revised downward, and the effect is expected to reduce annual GDP growth to well under 1.4%, possibly even below 1% per annum. Whatever it finally becomes, the GDP growth rate under Obama will be the third worst number in the history of the United States. 1.4% is not "almost half" of the 3.5% figure for the latter half of the 20th Century, but more than half, and a 1% annual growth rate would lower it by an astonishing 70%. That's quite a track record for the "thriving" Obama economy. Of course, we know it's all George Bush's fault, right?

    1. Sorry for the typo: 1.4% is not [more] than half, but [less] than half of 3.5%, i.e., I meant to type that the LOSS in GDP growth is not [almost] half but [more] than half.

  8. One thing we could/should bring back to this country is the steel manufacturing business. That has gone overseas and with it we have really lost our manufacturing edge. If we set out to build the Golden Gate Bridge today, we would have to outsources the job to the Japanese or Chinese. Trump understands things like this and how far we have fallen, and how important it is to regain this. hilLIARy and LIEawatha tell us Donald Trump is one of those mean businessmen who make profits (!@#!) and is just mean and will steal money from you! What is hilLIARy's and the Indian squaw's plan? More taxes and bigger government. Boy that's a winner. Those two should be playing bingo at the old folks home. People go to their rallies and cheer? My God how can they be so stupid, I would be laughing uncontrollably.

  9. Trump has immigration pretty well figured out. Taxation less so, but showing flashes of heading in the right direction. National defense? Who knows.

    He must be pretty good at something or he wouldn't have made all that money without most of it coming from government subsidies.

    Macroeconomics? The man is a complete ignoramus. Next chance anybody gets, someone ask him if he's ever heard of Smoot and Hawley. They sounded a lot like him.

  10. Saws this bumper sticker today: Keep The Immigrants. Deport Trump.

    He's under their skin, but good.

  11. So, at least he cares about people with jobs.
