We’re going to try something on Fridays and see if you guys like it. Given there are stories from earlier in the week that need to be updated and other info that is just breaking that we don’t want to miss, we’re going to start Friday Roundup.
It’s a briefing that contains the updates and other news that should be on your radar until Monday. Here goes…
Firms Bail On China Due to Trump Pressure: Apple, GoPro, Hasbro, Steve Madden, Black & Decker, Whirlpool, and Intel Corporation are just some of the firms who are planning on moving operations from China to SE Asia because President Trump is making China an expensive place to do business by his tariff strategy.
Our economy is booming. If this continues their economy could stagnate and bruise the unholy bargain, freedom for prosperity, which keeps the Chicoms in power. Trump knows this and is playing them like a fiddle.
Dem Civil War Brews Up: Far left Dems are giving Joe Biden big problems because he worked with racist Dems decades ago and even eulogized the Dixiecrat (racist southern Dem) 1948 nominee for president. Dem Senators Herman Talmadge, John Eastman, and Dixiecrat Strom Thurmond (who, after changing his views, joined the GOP) all were spoken of kindly by Biden in the past.
Biden made the point that this proves he could work across ideological barriers to get things done. However, the hard left is saying these past associations should disqualify him for president.
Does Sanders’s massive and long-term association with the vicious communist dictators of the USSR, a regime that aimed nukes at us for forty years, disqualify him? Hard leftists were strangely mum on that.
Navy SEAL Gets Dramatic Courtroom Break: Navy SEAL CPO Eddie Gallagher’s trial for murder yesterday took a positive turn for him, as his Team medic confessed to the murder of the ISIS prisoner in question.
Perry Mason, call your office.
Medic Corey Scott had received immunity, as he was a prosecution witness, and seemingly turned the tables on the prosecutors by exonerating Gallagher at no legal cost to himself. Scott claimed his murder of the ISIS member was a mercy killing, as he said the prisoner was going to die anyway and he wanted to spare him torture at the hands of others in SEAL Team Seven.
Yeah, sure pal.
Trump Ally Wins Again in London: Boris Johnson, Trump friend and endorsee, convincingly won the final Tory parliamentary ballot for party leader held yesterday. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt came in a very distant second. Johnson led the Brexit campaign in 2016 and Hunt opposed Brexit. Hunt now says he’s for it.
Across the sceptered isle they will both now campaign for a month, and then a vote will be taken by over 160,000 Tory (aka Conservative) party members. The winner will be prime minister. At this point Johnson is heavily favored.
Annnnnd, we’re out. Have a good weekend.
