China imposes tariffs in response to the US export changes

Pork Farms -Chinese imposes Tarriffs

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

China is the second largest importer of American farm products. On Monday morning Beijing imposed tariffs of up to 25% on more than 120 American products, including fruits, nuts, and wine, this move in retaliation to Trumps decision to raise taxes on Chinese imports.

Consumers of American products will now have to pay more for the western products they have grown to ove including pork and a staple of the Chinese diet.

Demand for pork in China has outpaced the farmers abilities to produce the other white meat. Based on 2017, numbers the US exported and estimated $130.4bn of product to China. While the affected number for current products is $3bn, it is still considered small compared to the overall sum.

REVIEW:ROWKIN BIT CHARGE

Rowkin Bit Charge

Small and solid, but interestingly not easily to lose. Good quality sound, descent volume, perfect for workouts and even an occasional shower.

 

The Rowkin Bit Charge, is almost never out of power with just a little dedication to a weekly charge of the charging base. While using the Rowkin’s I rode the recumbent bike at the local LA Fitness and walked out of the gym on the telephone. I walked nearly halfway across the parking lot before the buds disconnected from my phone. I immediately turned around and hastily fetched my phone, the Rowkin’s saved the day.

Philippines have gained nothing “except brutality and agony.,” for participating in US led wars.

President Rodrigo Duterte seconded his previous sentiments recently. The US and Philippines are treaty allies, the two countries hold joint military exercises to improve the functionality of the troops, however in recent years relations have been strained.

Duterte openly said he opposes the US policy to drag other countries to war in different parts of the world. The notoriously outspoken president said, "We did not benefit (from these expeditions) all these years of sacrifice except brutality and agony. We will stand on our own,"

Allies around the world have pushed against the brutality of American wars. This is just the lates in a series of friendlies showing disapproving aggression.

Chinese Trade

Scribe: Samuel Otis

Email: samuel@thethinkering.com

 

Last month Dumb Donald imposed weighty tariffs on steel and aluminum, he complained the US was getting the short end of the stick concerning mostly European trade.

He is now proposing heavy tariffs on Chinese goods, to the tune of $60billion. US retailers, have gathered to present a request for the White House to reconsider. The new taxes are mostly on telecommunications and technology and consumer products.

Specific information is expected to be released as soon as Friday.

The group penned a letter organized by the Retail Industry Leaders Association and is agreed upon by the largest 25 retail stores. The retailers insist the new taxes will hurt American Families. Again Trump is offering the maxim of unfair trade practices.

Canadian Woman honored by being first black on a $10 bank note. Viola Desmond, is the first black person to appear alone on Canadian currency that is not a member of British royalty.

Compared to US’s Rosa Parks, she defied authority by integrating a movie theater nearly ten years before the bus boycott began in Alabama. During the International Woman’s Day event last week the Bank of Canada unveiled a new $10 bill featuring Desmond.

In 1946, Desmond was 32 year old business owner and beautician from Halifax who was traveling to promote and sale her line of beauty products when she decided to attend the theater. She was asked to leave the main floor and watch from the balcony, she refused.

In the US there are a little over 200 sanctuary cities. Those are cities that provide safe havens for immigrants who were trying to escape the violence of South America. In the name of keeping immigrant families together they exist.

The mayor of Oakland Libby Schaaf, tipped off her constituents that a federal raid was coming. ICE agents were never the less able to arrest more detain 150 people for deportation. Of that group they say half of them have criminal backgrounds which is difficult to believe.

N. Tru Bass: About the Snake Oil Salesman in the White House?

Snake Oil Salesman in the White House

Why are the legacy media attempting to guilt Dumb Donald into behaving like a human being?

I recently saw a report on legacy media, comparing Dumb Donald to former president Barack Obama and the compassion contrast. Journalist, Anderson Cooper followed a social media track from the sitting president of the United States.

He pointed out that on the day that both Luke Hoyer, 15, and Alana Petty, 14 were buried after the Florida massacre in Parkland, he didn’t mention the teens in his many new media rants. On the prior day, a teacher who was killed in the shooting was buried and the journalist said that there was no mention of him either. Parkland is less than 50 miles from Mar-a-largo, the presidents southern palace and no mention.
