Hair Füror Makes a Move

Seething Rage.

The LATimes email thingie tells us:

— Trump has issued an executive order that will bar TikTok‘s parent company, ByteDance, from conducting business transactions with American companies beginning in 45 days. A separate order bans business transactions involving WeChat, a popular communications and commerce app owned by the Chinese internet giant Tencent.

The pontificating poltroons at Axios morning email thingie thinks that the Lord Damp Nut’s sudden desire to ban TikTok is a major, strategic escalation against China, but come’on! We’re talking Trump-the-Chump.

The Trump Razor is in effect:

Trump’s Razor: Ascertain the stupidest possible scenario that can be reconciled with the available facts and that answer is likely correct. An homage to William of Occam.

Remember the disastrous rally in Tulas Oklahoma (thanks Twizzler!) that was undermined by the Yutes of Today using TikTok as their organizing platform? [The kids requested millions of tickets using funny alias names, were granted –which given the hubris of the 4th Reich seems rash now. LDN’s 2020 Goat Rodeo paid for a large arena, paid for a large overflow space; they even removed the social distancing stickers on seats and the floor because they were so certain millions of people were showing up. There were more empty seats than people and then when Hair Füror realized he’d been chump’ed by teens and tweens You’re Fired’ed two campaign staffers, including his campaign manager Brad Parscale. When he realized that a small crowd from Possum Hollar still managed to murder-by-virus an un-masked Herman Cain, and super-spread the virus all over the south, Tulas effectively murdered dead his beloved rallies.]

TikTok being used like a surgical tool against himself is the reason for the sudden crack-down. Lord Damp Nut is counter-punching against being embarrassed.

Anyway, here’s Axios morning email thingie:

President Trump last night used a pair of executive orders to launch a major escalation of the U.S.-China trade war, substituting consumer technology for soybeans, Axios’ Dan Primack and Scott Rosenberg report.

  • Why it matters: U.S. tech companies and investment firms doing business in China are in the line of fire, and may be the first to feel retaliation.

Americans and U.S. companies will be banned from making transactions with ByteDance, the Chinese owner of TikTok, in 45 days, Trump said.

  • Trump’s order cites “emergency powers” as the basis for the unusual order targeting a single foreign company.
  • A similar order covers WeChat, a popular messaging app in China sometimes used by expatriates in the U.S.

Between the lines: The WeChat executive order seems to also take aim at WeChat’s owner, Tencent, a tech giant with stakes in lots of popular U.S. tech companies including Reddit and Epic Games, which makes Fortnite.

We’re gonna stick with Trump’s Razor. There’s too much thinkin’ and strategin’ in the Axios analysis.

UPDATE 1: We are not the only ones who thinks this…

    Where are the hues & cries of anguish? The screaming, the wailing, the gnashing of teeth, the outright cries of “Fascism descending, and being imposed on us?!?!?! ”
    I at least wanna hear somebody go, “(Cough,cough….bullshit!…cough, cough,)”
    Nancy? Chuck?
    Because if we don’t stop him here, then what’s next? An EO banning the WaPo from publishing, due to “National Security concerns?” CNN, MSNBC, all the “Fake News” broadcasters accused of Treason & Sedition, and put to death under the aegis of the Espionage Act? If Drumpf is the only one who determines what’s under the auspices of National Security, then who will stop him at that point? Who would dare?

    Only “Approved, Official News Sources” will be allowed from now on, according to the Office of Imperial Communications Control.

    • You’re making the erroneous assumption that this EO is worth the toilet paper it’s written scrawled with sharpie on…

        I was wondering how they intend to enforce such a ban; anyone caught using it goes immediately to jail?

        Why, you’d need some kind of built-in tracking software, the kind that practically tracks your every keystroke, or your whereabouts, or at least the kind we would need to track Covid-19 carriers…..

      Dennis, I feel all we are going to get from now til 11/3 is verbal castigation from The House. They threw away an Impeachment on the Ukraine mess, so now they’re lying low til the election. “Let the people decide”.

        “Threw away an impeachment”? You’re joking, right?
        A lot of people were complaining about Nancy not going for impeachment when she had all this evidence, she finally picks something that has unimpeachable documentation and she gets “you threw away an impeachment”?
        Seriously, that’s all I can think of for why it took so long to pick an impeachable offence from the pile of turds – there was documentation and documentation of the attempt to conceal the documentation. And still the Senate yawned, refused to listen to testimony and basically threw it out.
        But look on the bright side – get this clown out of office and there is a whole metric tonne of violations to choose from for prosecution even if we hold back on the Ukraine quid pro quo on the dubious grounds that he was already tried, although in a different court.

    So it seems that our Resident Snowflake got his fee-fees hurt by the “evil” tic tok and now he must ban them for the sake of his failing/ flailing(?) manhood. Didn’t he previously have a spat with Jim Accosta and tried to ban him as well? Such a stable genius. Each and every day he proves once again how totally unqualified he is to be a President of anything. “What a Maroon”
