Trump Is Giving Americas Hardest Workers $12 Billion To Ease Their Pain

The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by NY Times.

Big news out of Washington as the Trump administration announced that they’re approving up to $12 billion for some of America’s hardest workers in the country. The farmers of America will certainly enjoy this provided the funds are spent properly and that it helps the farmers in the need of emergency relief that would protect them from the potential harm of the trade war. This money will likely be used to protect farmers from losing too much money in relation to the current policies going on with the trade issues.

“WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Tuesday announced up to $12 billion in emergency relief for farmers hurt by the president’s trade war, moving to to insulate food producers from looming financial losses that would be a direct result of President Trump’s policies.

The aid to farmers, announced by the United States Department of Agriculture, will come through a direct assistance program, one designed to help with food purchase and distribution and one specifically geared toward promoting trade.

The move is an indication that Mr. Trump — ignoring the concerns of farmers, their representatives in Congress, and even some of his own aides about the adverse consequences of a trade war he says he relishes — plans to plow forward in escalating his tariff tit-for-tat around the world.

“The actions today are a firm statement that other nations cannot bully our agricultural producers to force the United States to cave in,” Sonny Perdue, the secretary of agriculture, said during a call with reporters to unveil the program. “This administration will not stand by while our hard-working agricultural producers bear the brunt of unfriendly and illegal tariffs.”

The approach could cost American producers billions of dollars and potentially inflict political pain on Republicans in farm states who would be forced to answer for the policies of a president who has shown little regard for the consequences of his trade agenda.

The European Union, Canada, Mexico, China and other countries have responded to Mr. Trump’s tariffs on steel, aluminum and $34 billion worth of Chinese products by imposing taxes of their own. They have often chosen to target farm country, the source of some of America’s biggest exports and an important political base for the president.

American soybeans, pork, sugar, orange juice, cherries and other products now face tariffs in foreign markets that make their products less desirable.

Mr. Trump and his advisers have argued that while American producers may feel short-term pain from his protectionist stance, ultimately they will benefit from it as other countries lower their barriers to American products.

In the meantime, the administration has sought ways for the Agriculture Department to help farmers survive the pain of retaliation. As part of the program announced on Tuesday, the department will draw on the financial resources of a program known as the Commodity Credit Corporation, which helps shore up American farmers by buying their crops.

The initiative, which does not authorize any new money and thus not need approval from Congress, was a way for Mr. Trump to tamp down criticism of his trade policies. But it was also an unmistakable signal that the president has no plans to lift his tariffs any time soon, as Farm Belt senators have pleaded.

The plan, first reported by The Washington Post, was met with swift condemnation from Republicans and trade groups, who said that Mr. Trump had devised an expensive and clunky solution to a crisis of Depression-era proportions.

“This trade war is cutting the legs out from under farmers and White House’s ‘plan’ is to spend $12 billion on gold crutches,” said Senator Ben Sasse, Republican of Nebraska. “This administration’s tariffs and bailouts aren’t going to make America great again, they’re just going to make it 1929 again.”

One trade group leader said farmers need contracts, not aid, for stability.

“The best relief for the president’s trade war would be ending the trade war,” said Brian Kuehl, the executive director of trade group Farmers for Free Trade, adding, “This proposed action would only be a short-term attempt at masking the long-term damage caused by tariffs.”

Farm groups say their members have already suffered under lower global commodity prices and natural disasters. The prospect of retaliation has further upended global markets for soybeans, meat and other American farm exports, and farmers are warning that tariffs are costing them valuable foreign contracts that took years to win.

The White House has argued that the tariffs are a negotiating strategy that will allow the president to secure better trade deals, and that the pain the tariffs is inflicting is small in comparison to the potential economic gains.

In an interview on CNBC last week, Peter Navarro, a White House trade adviser, said that the amount of trade being affected by the tariffs was a “rounding error” compared to the vast size of the Chinese and American economies. “My point is that it’s much less disruptive than these headlines would suggest,” he said.

Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, noted that more than 456,000 jobs are supported by trade in her state alone.

“These new tariffs are threatening $977 million in state exports,” Ms. Ernst said. “That is no ‘rounding error.’ Those are real people — Iowans — who are waiting for terms to be negotiated, for new deals to be finalized.”

Biden Tries To Help Dems With GOTV Rally But It Doesn’t Go Well So Trump Has A Little Fun With Him

Joe Biden’s name has been bandied about as a possible 2020 presidential contender.

He’s getting out a bit more, apparently, but he doesn’t seem to be able to draw the massive crowds that Trump does.

Honestly, I’m not sure who would be “excited” to go to a Biden rally. The only thing I can think of attending for is to witness some of his famous gaffes, like when he told a wheelchair-bound state senator to “stand up & let ’em see ya!”

Trump had a little fun at Biden’s expense as they both held rallies in Nevada on Saturday.

Breitbart reported:

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden both campaigned in Nevada on Saturday, but it was clear that Trump bested the former vice president in crowd size.
“By the way, Joe Biden is in Las Vegas,” Trump said, during a rally in Elko, Nevada. “Sleepy Joe Biden, we call him ‘One Percent Joe.’”

Trump noted that despite repeatedly running for president, Biden never got more than one percent support in the polls.

When Trump asked supporters which nickname they preferred, one woman in the crowd shouted “Creepy Joe!”

“She said ‘Creepy Joe,’” Trump said, pointing her out in the crowd. “No, I would never do that, I would never insult him like that.” The “Creepy Joe Biden” nickname grew among Trump supporters, based off of pictures of the former Vice President’s habitual holding and touching women and girls during political events.

Trump said that Biden only had 193 people at his campaign rally in Las Vegas.

“We love Elko, but in all fairness, it’s easier to draw a crowd in Las Vegas,” Trump said.

Trump claimed there were 6-7,000 people who couldn’t get into his rally in Elko.

He said Republicans were going to win big in the 2018 midterm elections.

“The Blue Wave is rapidly being shattered,” Trump said. “Not looking like a blue wave.”

Here’s Trump talking about Biden in Elko, NV.

FBI Finally Admits How They Illegally Infiltrated Trump Campaign – All Hell About To Break Lose!

This is the most gross abuse of power I’ve ever heard about.There literally is no level the left won’t stoop to, in attempt to gain power these days.

I hope people go to prison for this. If this was a normal American citizen doing this..they would be in prison for life.

From The Daily Wire:

The FBI, under the guidance of then-director James Comey, used more than one spy in its investigation into former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the government disclosed in a court filing on Friday.

“The FBI has protected information that would identify the identities of other confidential sources who provided information or intelligence to the FBI” as well as “information provided by those sources,” wrote David M. Hardy, the head of the FBI’s Record/Information Dissemination Section.

The filing by Hardy and the Department of Justice came in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to gain access to four of the FBI’s applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Page. While the applications were released June 20, they were heavily redacted, and “USA Today reporter Brad Heath has sued for full copies of the documents,” The Daily Caller reports.

The filing says the “confidential sources” deployed by the FBI were in addition to Christopher Steele, a former British spy who reportedly authored a dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump. That dossier was used in order to obtain the FISA warrants, which give the FBI wide latitude in an investigation, including the power to wiretap.

“This includes nonpublic information about and provided by Christopher Steele, as well as information about and provided by other confidential sources, all of whom were provided express assurances of confidentiality,” Hardy wrote.

Steele was hired by his business associate, Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, which had been paid by Perkins Coie, the law firm retained by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. Most of the Steele dossier had to do with Trump and onetime Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, but none of that material appears in the FISA applications.

Of particular note are a couple footnotes in the third FISA renewal application, The Daily Wire reported in July. One footnote mentions that Steele was paid by the FBI for his information, but “suspended its relationship” with Steele after it learned he had disclosed information to the media. “Subsequently, the FBI closed [Steele] as an FBI source,” according to the documents.

Yet the FBI determined Steele’s information to be reliable because his previous reporting had been “corroborated and used in criminal proceedings,” according to the application. The FBI states in this footnote that the “incident that led the FBI to terminate its relationship with [Steele] occurred after [Steele] provided the reporting that is described herein.”
