Trump Magic – Cher Tweets Ultimate NIMBY Message…


Well, he called them out. President Trump knew if he supported a program to resettle illegal aliens in sanctuary cities, the hypocrisy of the left would come out… and boy was he right.

The champion for Hollywood’s far-left resistance movement, actress and singer Cher, jumps into action and sends the ultimate NIMBY (not in my back yard) message:

Basel III – IMF – Liquidity Crisis


QUESTION: As of today, Basel III comes in effect. Rumour goes that in a couple of months, there will be a lot of turmoil on the market and it would be the start of the implementation of an SDR like thing where people would lose 20-30% of their value and get stuck with this new currency. You have mentioned before this was in the pipeline but no timing was given. Is it really this close or is it for 2020-2022?

PT’S

ANSWER: The IMF has been pitching Washington to let their SDR become the new reserve currency. They claim this would eliminate the problem of the Fed having to worry about external influence v domestic. Let me say that this will NEVER eliminate the issues of international capital flows. The fixed exchange rate of Bretton Woods never prevented that problem and it was that very issue that brought it crashing down. Until we are ready to begin teaching the meaning of a floating exchange rate system and abandon Keynesian economics, I do not see this problem ever being eliminated.

Basel III is separate from the IMF and its purpose is capitalization of banks — not the reserve currency of a dollar v SDR. Basel III was agreed upon by the members of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in November 2010, and was scheduled to be introduced from 2013 until 2015. However, implementation was extended repeatedly to March 31, 2019, and then again until January 1, 2022. The Committee replaced the existing Basel II floor with a floor based on the revised Basel III standardized approaches. This revised output floor is to be phased in between January 1, 2022, and year-end 2026, thereby becoming fully effective on January 1, 2027, if the banking system can survive that long to begin with.

The Basel III leverage ratio framework and disclosure requirements (“the Basel III leverage ratio framework”) was supposed to be raised to protect banks from failures. Many were required to raise more capital. The Net Stable Funding Ratio (“Basel III NSFR standards”) was to be applied to participating banks. Moreover, the committee is monitoring the overall impact of Total Loss Absorbing Capacity (TLAC) and banks’ holdings of TLAC instruments. Capital requirements for market risk as well as the committee’s finalization of post-crisis reforms were all supposed to be back-tested. Additionally, profit and loss (P&L) accounts related to the revised internal models-based approach (IMA) for calculating minimum capital requirements for market risk more specifically.

All of that said, the crisis we have is a LIQUIDITY Crisis. This time it has been created especially by the European Central Bank (ECB). By keeping interest rates negative and punishing banks for having cash, they have (1) lent into real estate to get higher yields but this type of asset cannot be sold easily, (2) buying emerging market debt to get a high-yield like Turkey. Turkey was the favorite of Spanish Banks and the capital controls that Turkey did before the election sent shivers down the spine of institutional investors. The ECB has driven banks into these markets that are notoriously illiquid. This means that under Basel III, banks will not have the liquid assets to support their capitalization requirements. It becomes more likely that the Basel III requirements will be suspended or else there will be a wholesale collapse of the banking system.

Trade Winning – International Trade Court Rejects Challenge to Trump’s Steel and Aluminum Tariffs…


Find another winnamin. This MAGAnomic win is quiet, but bigly.

The United States Court of International Trade (full pdf below) has rebuked a global industry challenge to President Trump’s Steel and Aluminum tariffs.

The court told the multinational trade association they lacked any authority to override the sovereign authority of President Trump, and his absolute right to apply a national security (section 232) declaration to protect the U.S. Steel and Aluminum industry.  Whoops

(WASHINGTON DC) The Court of International Trade, the body that hears constitutional challenges to federal trade policy, rejected an effort to overturn President Trump’s 25 percent tariffs on steel imports on Monday.

The American Institute for International Steel, a trade association, had sued the administration, arguing that the president exceeded his authority when he claimed last year that the tariff was justified under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act, which involves protecting “national security.” The court said Monday that it lacked the authority to second-guess the president’s decision.

“[I]dentifying the line between regulation of trade in furtherance of national security and an impermissible encroachment into the role of Congress could be elusive in some cases because judicial review would allow neither an inquiry into the president’s motives nor a review of his fact-finding,” a three-judge panel said.

President Trump and Brazil’s President Bolsonaro Oval Office Meeting (Video and Transcript)…


Earlier today President Donald Trump and Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro held an open media event in the Oval Office prior to their bilateral discussions.  (Video and Transcript Below):

[Transcript] – 12:10 P.M. EDT – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. It’s a great honor to have President Bolsonaro with us from Brazil. He has done a very outstanding job; ran one of the incredible campaigns. Somebody said it, a little bit, reminded people of our campaign, which I’m honored by. But it was a tough, well-fought-out campaign.

And we are going to be discussing, today, Venezuela. We’ll be discussing trade. We’ll be discussing many subjects. And Brazil is a great friend. I think probably because of the relationship that we have, Brazil and the United States have never been closer than they are right now.

PRESIDENT BOLSONARO: (Speaks Portugese.)

Q Mr. President —

INTERPRETER: Excuse me. Translation now.

PRESIDENT BOLSONARO: (As interpreted.) It gives me great pleasure to be here in United States to take part in this visit after decades on end of anti-U.S. Presidents in Brazil. Brazil has indeed made a major shift in 2017. Obviously enough, we do have a great deal to talk about. We do share a lot in common. And we will certainly work to the benefit of our two peoples.

We do have a great deal of shared values. I admire President Donald Trump. And we will certainly work towards the benefit of our two nations. Because, just as President Donald Trump wants to have a great America, I, on my side, also want to have and ensure we have great Brazil.

So yes, increasingly, from now onwards, Brazil will become increasingly engaged with the U.S., and I’m very proud and pleased that that is so.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. That’s very nice. Thank you.

And I think — before we begin, I think we would like to — you know, Brazil is a great, great soccer power and a great country. And we’re going to present that, and I believe they have one also. But you know all about Brazil being the great soccer power. They have great, great players. I can still remember Pelé and so many others. You’ve had a fantastic history.

So we’re going to exchange jerseys. I see that we got one, and this is the U.S. National Team. And so that’s an honor to give that to you. Thank you very much.

PRESIDENT BOLSONARO: (As interpreted.) I’m a little younger, but I also do remember Pelé.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yeah, right. Right.

PRESIDENT BOLSONARO: (As interpreted.) Let me use the opportunity, Mr. President, to hand you a gift, a jersey, as a token of — as an emblematic token of the world’s best-ever soccer player, Edson Arantes do Nascimento —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes.

PRESIDENT BOLSONARO: (As interpreted.) — also known as “Pelé,” who gave us so much joy by playing football and for his talent at football.

Q Mr. President, will you grant Brazil NATO privileges? Will you grant Brazil NATO privileges? Are you —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, we’re looking at it very strongly. We’re very inclined to do that. The relationship that we have right now with Brazil has never been better. I think there was a lot of hostility with other Presidents. There is zero hostility with me. And we were going — we’re going to look at that very, very strongly, in terms of whether it’s NATO or it’s something having to do with alliance. But we have a great alliance with Brazil — better than we’ve ever had before.

Q Mr. President, Brazil is working to offer the United States access to a rocket launch site in Brazil. Americans will be able to go to Brazil without a visa. What would you like President Bolsonaro to get to Brazil — to take to Brazil as a result of this visit?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, we have. We’re working on different military sites and military options. We’re working on visas and going in a much easier fashion. All of that is good. And we have many things that Brazil would like, and I think we’re working on those things.

One of the big elements of the relationship is trade. Brazil makes great product and we make great product. And our trade has been never as good as it should be in the past. And in some cases, it should be far, far more.

So I think our trade with Brazil will go substantially up in both directions, and we look forward to that. And that’s one of the things that Brazil would like to see.

Steve. Steve.

Q Mr. President, you’re going to talk about Venezuela. What do you want to see happen in Venezuela?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, we don’t want to say exactly. I know exactly what I want to happen in Venezuela, but we’re going to be talking about different things. All options are on the table. And it’s a shame what’s happening in Venezuela — the death, and the destruction, and the hunger. Hard to believe one of the wealthiest countries is now one of the poorest and most impoverished countries. So we’ll be talking about that in great length.

Q (Inaudible) Mr. President, Brazil involved on a military action in Venezuela? And also, are you offering Brazil — are you supporting Brazil’s efforts to join the OECD?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I am supporting their efforts to join, and we are just going to decide — I think I can speak for both countries: All options are on the table. Every option is on the table with respect to Venezuela.

Q And you would like to see Brazil involved on any sort of military option?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We haven’t even discussed it. We’re going to discuss it today.

Q Mr. President, why are you attacking Senator John McCain seven months after his death?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I’m very unhappy that he didn’t repeal and replace Obamacare, as you know. He campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years. And then he got to a vote and he said, “Thumbs down.” And our country would have saved a trillion dollars and we would have had great healthcare.

So he campaigned. He told us, hours before, that he was going to repeal and replace. And then for some reason — I think I understand the reason — he ended up going thumbs up. And, frankly, had we even known that, I think we would have gotten a vote because we could have gotten somebody else. So I think that’s disgraceful. Plus, there are other things.

I was never a fan of John McCain and I never will be.

Thank you very much everybody. Thank you.

Q What do you say to critics who call you authoritarian? What do you say to people who call you both authoritarian?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much.

Q Mr. President, does Secretary Alex Acosta still have your full support?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: He does.

Q Was that a yes, Mr. President?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: He does. He has my full support.

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy can send a Reusable Moon Transfer Vehicle to be repeatedly used to transfer humans (or Kerbals) from LEO to the Moon surface. It can then refuel and transfer back to LEO. Imagine the possibilities. As with the last mission (see previous video) we are using the super-efficient RL-10 CECE engine. This simulation captured in KSP (Kerbal Space Program) 1.2.2 NOTE: Some config changes were done to set boiloff of fuel to be almost zero to simulate new evolving tech for cooling liquid fuels.
