Huawei Technologies, China’s Quasi-Government Controlled Cell Phone Tech Company, Hires Democrat Lobbyist Tony Podesta

China’s Huawei Tech was black-listed by President Trump’s administration due to the inherent national security risk from Chinese spyware being installed in the operating hardware of their cell phone technology.  The Biden administration has maintained that status.

However, despite the ban Hauwei ramped up lobbyist spending in the second quarter of this year. [Bloomberg] “Huawei spent $1.06 million in the second quarter of 2021, up from $180,000 in the first quarter this year, according to disclosures filed Tuesday. The company listed broadband and infrastructure bills as specific interests, as well as trade and a digital privacy measure.”

Today Politico is revealing that Tony Podesta, the infamous Democrat lobbyist who organized the money laundering system for the Clinton Foundation, has been hired as a lobbyist by Hauwei.

POLITICO – Huawei is hiring Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta as a consultant, according to two people familiar with the matter. Podesta will aim to help the controversial Chinese telecom giant warm relations with the Biden administration.

Podesta will work to advance a variety of the company’s goals in Washington, according to one of the people. He declined to comment. A spokesperson for Huawei also declined to comment. (read more)

China Works With Biden Administration to Target Former America-First Trump Team With Sanctions


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 23, 2021 | Sundance | 131 Comments

One of the most significant aspects to President Trump’s administration was the trade and economic team he assembled to drive the “America-First” Main Street resurgence we saw on display throughout the four years in office.  Readers will note, there was no turnover of personnel in the trade and economic team, because they were the priority, the fulcrum of the Trump Doctrine. One of the key people driving the America-First agenda was Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

President Trump’s trade and economic team were laser focused on bringing back domestic Main Street economics as the foundation of our economy.  That approach put Wall Street multinationals at a policy disadvantage.   No-one without an interest in U.S. economic security was allowed a seat at the Trump table.

Policies and practices that supported made in the USA domestic manufacturing and industry were the prism through which all actions taken by the Trump administration were viewed.  The massive growth in U.S. jobs and wages was a result.  We also had an unprecedented period of deflationary pricing.  Things were, well, economically astoundingly good for American workers.

As a direct consequence China, Europe and ASEAN partners who had their foothold in the U.S. economy were weakened.  This made the U.S. (Wall Street) multinational corporations -who rely on outsourcing, offshoring and raw material export- very angry.  The exfiltration of American wealth was halted by Trump.  There were trillions at stake, and many enemies were made because of the America-First agenda.

Those Wall Street enemies of Trump are essentially allies of Joe Biden policy.  Biden has not only re-instituted policies to make the U.S. dependent again, ie. a service-driven economy, he has driven up the prices of energy, raw materials and created massive inflation directly as an outcome of policy.

Today, just as the Biden administration continues using the DOJ to target former Trump officials, China announces they will target Wilbur Ross with sanctions.

Make no mistake about this, China is taking this action against the America-First team because they can.  They are, in essence, doing Biden’s bidding…..

BEIJING/WASHINGTON, July 23 (Reuters) – China said on Friday that it has imposed counter-sanctions on U.S. individuals including former U.S. commerce secretary Wilbur Ross in response to recent U.S. sanctions on Chinese officials in Hong Kong.

The sanctions are the first imposed by China under its new anti-foreign sanction law, passed in June, and come days before U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman is due to visit China amid deeply strained ties.

China also imposed unspecified “reciprocal counter-sanctions” on current and former representatives of a range of organisations, including the Congressional-Executive Commission on China and the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. (read more)

Brutal CfG Ad Hits Cheney For Operating Similar Personal Power Structure as Clinton

Club for Growth (CfG), not exactly part of the MAGA community, is hitting Representative Liz Cheney in Wyoming with a pretty effective ad.  Essentially, the ad walks through a comparison between Hillary Clinton and Liz Cheney, highlighting the similarities.  WATCH:

Hey, whatever works.  As long as we can get rid of this warmongering DeceptiCon, who is more ideologically aligned with leftist democrats, I’m good with all attack angles.

Judge Amero Dismisses Lawsuit Against Georgia Run-Off Elections


Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Jul 22, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

During a hearing, Georgia Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero rejected a lawsuit seeking to overturn the results of the state’s two Senate runoff elections in January, rejecting a case brought by a Fulton County resident. This is how judges refuse to do their job. They look for technicalities to dismiss actions they do not want to rule on. Judge Amero said the challenge wasn’t filed on time while adding that the two senators weren’t properly served with the lawsuit. He did not decide the issue and avoided the entire question. Then you have the left pretending that such a dismissal is on the merits and boast the elections were not rigged.

This is all part of why the confidence in government is collapsing. NOBODY is willing to simply do their job. All the lawsuits on the election are dismissed on technicalities. The Supreme Court has refused to get involved. So while the corrupt media keeps saying Trump is lying, there is no decision whether the election has ever been resolved in a really straightforward manner. Prove the election was honest or rigged. Stop protecting the nonsense for the 2022 election that our model warns will be a Panic Cycle that is likely to end in violence. This is how empires, nations, and city-states fall — a complete collapse in confidence.

The Plot of the Demigods


Armstrong Economics Blog/ECM Re-Posted Jul 22, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Marty,

Did you ever think when you studied history, created Socrates, then observed what would unfold in the future would lead you to what we see happening today, in social collapse and the march toward authoritarianism? Truly, wasn’t this like discovering the Rosetta Stone and other mysteries best left untouched? When did it dawn on you the shocking truth, that we were walking down the path others have taken that led to chaos and the great unravelling?

MS

ANSWER: The path to where this all led was actually two. When I was perhaps 8 to 10-years-old, I saw a coin in a shop for sale which was a Roman antoninianus of Aurelian (270-275 AD). I bought it for $10. Perhaps that combined with all the movies during the ’60s  about Rome captured my interest in history. That coin made it come alive.

When the movie “Cleopatra” came out in 1963, I was 13 and you had to be 16 to get in to see the film. We had to sneak in to see it back then. It was a big covert operation but two friends and I got in. I use to drive my daughter and her friends to the movies when they were in their teens. When she was older, she said they would get a ticket for one show and sneak into another. I said, if you didn’t, there was something wrong with you.

My father always was interested in history and he wanted to return to Europe. He was there with General Patton from North Africa to Berlin. My mother was afraid to fly and said she would only go when he could afford to take the whole family. That day came in 1965 and we flew to Europe for the summer, traveling around from Sweden to Italy and back around through France. So all of that captured my interest in history. I could see the patterns that empires, nations, and city-states all rose and fell. I would ask WHY in class, and they really had no explanation.

I loved Europe and would return as often as I could. That trip to Europe and having to change currencies every time we crossed a border introduced me to foreign exchange. I began to see the prices would fluctuate and this too captured my attention. I also bought my first gold coin at a German bank which I still have to this day — just a quarter ounce.

I simply had a nose for trading. But traveling internationally I also developed friends. Back in the late ’70s, COMEX had only opened in 1975. I was making markets for other dealers to buy what scrap gold they bought each day and Englehard was about 1 hour from me. I was in the perfect location to make markets in gold and have it refined. Back then, to refine gold you had to have a minimum of one lot which was 100 ounces. At $800, that was $80,000 and then it would take 6 weeks to get paid. Most stores could not afford that. They would sell whatever they bought that day to me and I would collect it nationally and do all the refining. Because I was probably the biggest in the country out of the three of us, I represented a lot of business to Englehard. To get my business, they would pay me 90% upon delivery and the balance upon refining. This is a photo of a bar I would get back.

I knew a friend in Hong Kong who explained the gold market there. The problem was that my competitors would make markets ONLY when COMEX was open. I asked if I could sell in Hong Kong after hours. He said absolutely, but delivery had to be made in London. Fortunately, I had a friend in London as well. I asked if I sold in Hong Kong, could he make delivery for me in London the next day, and then I would swap him with a COMEX position. That was the birth of the overnight market in precious metals. I was not getting much sleep and at the high in January 1980. I was sleeping on the floor in my office next to my teletype machine. It was gold that gave birth to the 24-hour market. I eventually became a partner in Rudolf Wolf, which was a firm in London that was a founder of the London Metals Exchange. This was the start of exchange for the physical market overnight.

In 1972, the CME created a division within itself called the International Monetary Market, or IMM. This market offered contracts in foreign currencies, including the British pound, Canadian dollar, German Mark, Japanese yen, Mexican peso, and Swiss franc. The US bond began trading in 1977, and it was 1985 when the S&P 500 futures began. This was the evolution of the 24-hour markets.

Because I was one of the top three market makers in gold back in 1980, the IRS selected me as their test case. They walked in and declared me to be a bank by claiming that gold was still money for it was never demonetized. They came in and wanted to audit our records as to who had sold $10,000 or more. My lawyers said it was hopeless. The courts would always rule in favor of the government. When I walked by the desk where their auditor set up, I saw he was pulling out names of even $5,000 transactions. I asked, “I thought this was $10,000 or more?” He turned and looked at me and said, “If you don’t want any trouble, keep your mouth shut!” The next day, they came with a truck and removed all my records. I made up my mind to retire. I had discovered the Economic Confidence Model about 10 years before. I could see that gold would enter a bear market and decided to move on and just trade for myself.

Because I had been providing research to my clients, they said they still wanted the research. They said they would pay $2,000 an hour just to talk to me about the markets. I gave it a shot, and the next thing I knew the demand just for research skyrocketed so much so the Wall Street Journal heard about me back in 1983. But what was driving our global expansion was foreign exchange. There was really nobody out there advising on FOREX. I went to lunch with one of the heads of the top three Swiss banks in Geneva. He asked me to name a FOREX analyst in Europe. I couldn’t. I was embarrassed. He said there was none. If he was British, he was biased for the pound, the French were via la franc, and the German always the DM. He said, being American I did not care if the dollar rose or fell, and that is when everyone was using our firm.

By 1985, I was even summoned when they were creating G5 because I was the largest adviser in Foreign Exchange by that time. So two separate paths ended up merging. (1) my interest in history and trying to answer the question nobody could answer in school as to why empires, nations, and city-states rose and fell. (2) My interest in trading allowed me to see the “trades” in history and how the markets will rise and fall, with the common denominator being human nature.

I have studied the economic theories of Schumpeter and others who have seen a glimpse of the cause behind the cycles. Not only are we all linked together, but so is everything in nature. Climate change has resulted in migrations both from Africa north and from the north back to Africa (Sea Peoples). The paths I took merged. My interests in physics, computer science, history, and trading all came together. That painted a future that was perhaps the Rosetta Stone. You ask, “When did it dawn on you the shocking truth that we were walking down the path others have taken that led to chaos and the great unraveling?” I saw that long ago. But what I saw was still in the abstract in my mind. Living through this is fascinating, for it is confirming the research I did over decades.

You also ask if such “mysteries [are] best left untouched?” I am actually optimistic. Yes, we must crash and burn. That is simply how new opportunities emerge only from the ashes of the former. That does not mean we all die. Britain was the previous Financial Capital of the World before World War I. Europe committed economic suicide. It is today behind not just the US as an economy but also China. So the model saying that the Financial Capital of the World will move back to Asia is simply a statement of fact. It does not mean the END OF THE WORLD. Life will change, of course, but it will continue.

I do not believe we should turn off all radar and not know when a storm is approaching. You simply close your windows, buy some extra food, and hunker down. I see my discoveries as the same. Nobody will listen to me today. Perhaps after 2032, others will look back, understand, and create a new world that lives in harmony with the cycles of nature instead of butting their heads against them.

As for Gates and Soros, who may be trying to reduce the population and profit from this virus, controlling all forecasting tests and politicians, I believe they are our generation’s version of Hitler. They see themselves as above everyone else, and Gates has made himself the ruler over our health on a global scale. He is NOT interested in helping humanity but reducing it to what he thinks is the proper size. Something happens to many people when they reach a point where they have too much money. Some seem to elevate themselves, and just like Hitler, they never see themselves as evil. Our greatest positive is that Buffett and Soros will certainly not make it to 2032. Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955. He will only be 77 in 2032. It is Gates who I believe is the greatest threat to humanity. But humanity will survive this latest demigod’s plot.

My hope is that society will one day look at the Economic Confidence Model and the forecasts of Socrates and learn from them. If that day comes, the next 6 waves will be the alternative to this last group.

Joe Biden Arranges Words Into Odd Cringe-worthy Sequence During Heavily Structured CNN Townhall Event, The Picture is Priceless


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 21, 2021 | Sundance | 182 Comments

What do you call it when you combine cringe with awkward discomfort?   Whatever it is, this is full of it.

The White House coordinated with CNN to put Joe Biden on stage so that the administration could convey a message of importance to CNN viewers.   The event was so terribly horrible it’s doubtful the person in the White House is still employed.  EXAMPLE WATCH:

[TRANSCRIPT] …”And the question is whether or not we should be in a position where, you, er, um, are why can’t the, um, the experts say we know that this virus is in fact, er, er, um, uh, its this its going to be or, excuse me, we, we, we know why all the drugs approved are not temporary, temporarily approved, but permanently approved.”

Also, journalist Jennifer Epstein (Bloomberg News) tweeted out a picture from the camera position, to give her followers an idea of the audience.  Suffice to say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Oh dear….

Yeah, this guy got 80 million votes?… or something.

Pelosi Rejects Jim Banks and Jim Jordan From January 6th Committee, McCarthy Responds By Pulling All GOP Committee Members


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 21, 2021 | Sundance | 339 Comments

First, the GOP were foolish, specifically Kevin McCarthy, for agreeing to put any republicans on the January 6th investigative committee in the first place.  It was, and is, transparently obvious that the intent of Speaker Pelosi’s committee was to establish a political framework for  the 2022 election cycle.  Even Reuters pointed this out when they admitted the intent of the committee was to “complicate Republicans’ efforts to win majority control of the House in the 2022 congressional elections.”

Second, there is good news in this echo-chamber move by Pelosi to reject Republican committee members.  The fact that Nancy Pelosi would block any specific members from participating only speaks to the political intent of the committee’s central purpose.  Democrats have a habit of overplaying their hand; however, Republicans are weak in their ability to call it out with the eloquence and exposure it deserves.

In an extreme power move, Nancy Pelosi rejected Representative Jim Jordan (OH) and Representative Jim Banks (IN) from their appointment to the J6 committee. {Read Pelosi Statement Here}: “Monday evening, the Minority Leader recommended 5 Members to serve on the Select Committee. I have spoken with him this morning about the objections raised about Representatives Jim Banks and Jim Jordan and the impact their appointments may have on the integrity of the investigation”, said Pelosi.

In response to Pelosi rejecting Banks and Jordan, the first time Republican committee leaders have been rejected from a sitting sub-committee, House Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all of the Republican members. [Video Below]

The only way to win at this scheme is not to play; to go on the attack; to continually point out how intensely political the motives are, then start applying massive amounts of ridicule upon the House Democrats.

Laugh at them.  The media will attack.

Ignore it.

Laugh at them some more.  The media will attack.

Again, ignore it.

When the media ask for comment on any part of the sham committee outcome, blow it off.  Stand united as a Republican Party in just brushing off anything that stems as an outcome of the committee by referencing the prior ridicule; then applying more brief ridicule… then, “next question“?

Get a similar question?… attack on a policy point by pivoting to a current issue:

Ex: …”The Democrats are going to lose their seats because they hate this country, and every action they have taken shows how much they despise the people of our nation.  Take a look at the unsecured border; illegal aliens flowing through while Democrats claim to care about COVID spread?  Take a look at our schools in crisis; kids isolated, parents frustrated, the teachers union running the show and education collapsing.  These Democrats hate the middle-class and ordinary Americans; need proof, take a look at your grocery bill. These people you call Democrats, focused on this committee are entirely detached from you, me and the American people.  They hate the working class; just look at the prices you are paying at the gas pump.  Face it, they hate you, and the American electorate is going to show-up in massive numbers in 2022 and remove them.  Next question”…

Ridicule them, constantly.  Attack them, and hold them accountable to their own standard.

If House Republicans want the fight, then fight.  Fight with ferocity and intensity.

Fight like they are the third monkey on the ramp to Noah’s ark.  Yes, it is that serious.

Homeland Security Announces Border and Travel Restrictions for American Citizens Due to COVID, But Border Will Remain Wide Open for Illegal Aliens


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 21, 2021 | Sundance | 239 Comments

They are rubbing it in our faces now.  As CTH warned yesterday, this is not hypocrisy – this is the United States Government, Department of Homeland Security, initiating an enhanced and intentional effort to antagonize lawful American people into a place of extreme anger.  This is not hypocrisy.

The Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) is now announcing enhanced travel restrictions for law-abiding Americans, blocking non-essential travel into Mexico and Canada.  Simultaneous to this the same, ironically named, Homeland Security is facilitating a mass influx of illegal entry into the United States.

[SOURCE]

Stay aware and evaluate this for what it is.  This is an intentional effort to provoke American citizens.  This is Alinsky methods deployed at a federal and institutional level.

Often we see people ask, ‘Why are they so openly admitting to their wrongdoing and still carrying it out’?  Within the answer I have written frequently, ‘They simply do not care’.  It is not a sense of boundless hypocrisy that drives the far-left to showcase their disconnect.  The disconnect is not cognitive dissonance.  The disconnect is purposefully part of the ideological advancement of their goal.

The leftists, the “elites” writ large, are so open in their proclamations of being beyond reach – because they want us to view their power as all encompassing.  They act as rulers and dictators without accountability because that puts the victim, We The People, automatically in a demoralized subservient role.

We are in a very precarious time, and we must be careful as we are inundated by the openness of the corruption in the system. The radicals want a reaction; they want a strong -perhaps violent- reaction; as that plays into their larger objective. Misplaced anger toward the visibility of the corruption can be weaponized against us.

The question, “do the elites care if we know”, is accurately answered by, “they want people to know.”  The viewpoint that elites are hypocritical is the wrong nuance to what is visible. Their openness about their untouchable constructs is part of their purpose.

“Elitism” in its most raw and brutal display is a system of people who are beyond reproach according to their own outlook.  They must not be questioned; they are in ultimate control of society, outcomes or (fill_in_the_blank) as an extension of their self-proclaimed magnanimity.  Essentially, they are projecting their position inside a club, and all those not in the club are outsiders who do not get to provide input or judgement on the club rules.

This might sound like a DUH statement from the literal definition of “elitism”; however, it must be accepted this outlook is one of consumption, not determination.  They believe they represent the ‘greater good’, and by extension control moral authority.  Thus, within their mind, they are above reproach.  The visible outcome is they operate outside the systems they push upon others who are not in the club.

Elites do not have to wear masks (Pelosi hair salon); or elites do not have to abide by group and social distance rules (Newsom at restaurant party); or elites do not have to concern themselves for carbon emissions (Kerry private airline travel); or elites do not have to worry about the justice system (Clinton emails, Comey FBI lies), etc.

This is NOT hypocrisy, this is a fundamental part of creating a classist society.

Those within the club, in this example the DC club, want those outside the club to accept there are two systems of rights and responsibilities.   The club members have all powerful rights and no responsibilities for consequences; the non club members have lesser rights and full responsibility for consequences.  This is the cornerstone of a tiered or classist society outlook.

“Rules for thee and not for me” is more than a catch phrase; it is an actual worldview with a history in political control.  They are not hypocrites, they are living out their creed.

The outlook gained popularity going all the way back to the formation of the Fabian Socialist society.  You might remember George Bernard Shaw saying, “At a certain point those [outside the club] will have to justify their existence.”  Shaw was advocating for a genetic cleansing of those undeserving people who take more from society more than they provide in value.

This Fabian Socialist outlook is the most extreme form of “elitism”, the actual extermination of undesirables, but it is essentially along the same continuum as believing there are two sets of rules depending on your place in the hierarchy of society.

This outlook has been modernized to include the latest industry of Big Tech.  Those who control technocracy have merged with those who control the politics of society.  The outcome is elites deciding which voices are allowed to participate in the national conversation, and which voices must be ostracized because they are not compliant to the elitist worldview.

It is critical, actually beyond critical, that people start to accept what we are witnessing is not some misplaced system created by bad actors.  Those bad actors are actually elites who benefit from numbing society to the sheer audacity of their ideology.

Weaponizing COVID-19, as a tool to control the population, is purposeful.  None of this is without design.

Fauci The Cornered Rat

Fauci Gets Grilled By Senator Rand Paul

Dr. Fauci lied to Congress again when he claimed he never lied to Congress. The gnome of narcissism was visibly uncomfortable when Rand Paul cornered him. Instead of answering the Paul’s questions clearly, he dithered and insulted the senator. Fauci could not deny that he DID fund the Chinese Communist bioweapons lab, which helped them to achieve ‘gain of function’ with COVID-19.

Fauci is a hack for Bill Gates and the chief medical advisor to the Biden regime. He is the best-paid government employee. He has lately earned his money by flip flopping and lying to the American people. He claims to be the epitome of science, which enables him to say with glee…”You don’t know what you’re talking about!”

The diminutive doctor should be arrested and imprisoned, but I predict he’ll go unpunished. Those that are part of the ruling cabal never face the consequences for their crime. Instead, they appear on and are praised by the mainstream lying media. Even Fox News joined the act. Neil Cavuto condemned the questioning of Dr. Fauci and referred to it as a ‘pile on.’ Fauci was then praised as glowing point of light in America.  At least Sean Hannity condemned Fauci, and even though Sean has pushed the gene therapy injections in the past, he doesn’t think they should be mandatory.

As for Dr. Fauci, LOCK HIM UP!
