The Buck Stops Anywhere But Here

Our Stable Genius

Axios morning email thingie reports that David Navarro (literally found on Amazon because of a crank book he wrote on China), who plays Robbin to Stupid’s Tariffman, went on the Sunday Talkies on the electric TeeVee machine and lied his ass off:

On ABC’s “This Week,” White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said that during an Oval Office meeting with a group of executives:

  • “We heard from these business leaders: … ‘Just give us some time to December 15th. And, by the way, we are taking all of our sourcing production facilities out of China, and we will continue to do that.'”

But a source at a major U.S.-based company with a supply chain in China tells Axios:

  • “This is completely made up. … The supply chains companies of all stripes have built up in China took decades to create. No one in their right mind is going to show up and say they’re taking ‘all’ of their supply chains out of China simply to please DJT.”

A former administration official explains: “You can’t site and build factories, train workers, etc., on a dime. And the investments required are enormous, so companies usually wait for certainty in conditions before taking such big steps.”

And of course, the speculation about a recession hitting is gathering steam. Shorter Maggie Haberman: BUT WHAT ABOUT DAWSON?!!!

Longer version:

“President Trump, confronting perhaps the most ominous economic signs of his time in office, has unleashed what is by now a familiar response: lashing out at what he believes is a conspiracy of forces arrayed against him.

“He has insisted that his own handpicked Federal Reserve chair, Jerome H. Powell, is intentionally acting against him. He has said other countries, including allies, are working to hurt American economic interests. And he has accused the news media of trying to create a recession.

[Cut to courtroom scene, fidgeting with worry beads, and explaining with geometric logig about the strawberries…]

“Mr. Trump has repeated the claims in private discussions with aides and allies, insisting that his critics are trying to take away what he sees as his calling card for re-election. Mr. Trump has been agitated in discussions of the economy, and by the news media’s reporting of warnings of a possible recession. He has said forces that do not want him to win have been overstating the damage his trade war has caused, according to people who have spoken with him. And several aides agree with him that the news media is overplaying the economic fears, adding to his feeling of being justified, people close to the president said.”

Look, if the country goes into recession before the exciting conclusion of the 2020 Goat Rodeo, Possum Hollar is gonna be hella angry if they lose their jerbs in the coal mines and their huts get repossessed by the banksters,  and it won’t matter at all that Prznint Horndog got the Virgin Mayor of Keg City, Brett Kavanaugh, on the Supreme Court or passed the Billions for Billionaires Bill. He will be thrown out of office like a mere Bush.

And he seems to know it, somehow. What he does not know is what to do about it, other than point fingers elsewhere.

    Wait til Xi bends Individual-1 over the negotiating table and goes to town. Individual-1 needs a deal with China to try and stave off a recession before the election, and everyone knows it. His definitely-not-socialist bailout of farmers is not helping the family farms, only the corporate-owned farms. The Fed’s definitely-not-political lowering of interest rates spooked investors. The artist of the deal got nothing left. His one negotiating strategy–threaten to walk away from a China deal–won’t work because see above. I wish I was Canadian for times like this–I could laugh instead of shake my head in disgust.

    One thing that has me concerned is this: if you look at the violence he’s fomenting NOW, think about the two-month interval between him losing the Goat Rodeo and having to leave his beloved White House. That’s after loud cries of “Voter Fraud! Fake Newz! Foreign Interference! I want a do-over!”

    It’s ugly now, and it’s only going to get uglier.

    I’m pretty sure he’s more worried about what’s happening to his personal finances than what’s happening to the finances of the USofA. If he doesn’t benefit, no one will.

    Hello TG. I do wonder if the economy tanks as they say it should at least start to next year, and tRump does lose by a large margin, would he move what little cash he has to a safe nation then flee to a safer place for him? After all if he stays he will face charges. I wonder where he and his hell spawn would end up fleeing to? Hugs

      Fleeing could be a reason FatNixon’s babbling about Greenland, along with the theory he thinks it’s green.

      Scottie – how ya doin’? Here’s a little gem I unearthed, but it’s from 2015, so details may have changed since then:

      These countries currently have no extradition treaty with the United States:

      Afghanistan, Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Armenia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burma, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, the Central African Republic, Chad, Mainland China, Comoros, Congo (Kinshasa), Congo (Brazzaville), Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Libya, Macedonia, Madagascar, Maldives, Mali, Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Micronesia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Niger, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Rwanda, Samoa, São Tomé & Príncipe, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Vatican, Vietnam and Yemen. Now, I can’t even guarantee the list is real, or even all-comprehensive, but I DID notice that Greenland is not on there.

      Source: https://www.wsfa.com/story/22665099/countries-with-no-extradition-treaty-with-us/ which is a TV station somewhere. I’ll dig a little deeper, but his future is not looking any too good. Maybe he’ll do us all a favor, and “Epstein” himself.

      PS – I think a few of those he considers “shithole countries.”

    PPS – here’s another list, similar to the one above, but it’s from a source I’ve never used before, or even knew about:

    I feel like vomiting.
