Quite a day for news. First the economy.
The aim is to sabotage the American economy. No one in the deep state, whether they are in the “public service” or George Soros, will be affected. I think higher rates are a positive over the longer term, but everything is now aimed at the next election in 2020. Instability is the aim, so we shall see.
Then there’s this.
The Republicans in Congress could have built the wall and at more or less negligible cost. Will not do it. Border protection is the last thing on their minds.
And if you want more transformative news on the day, not even mentioned at Drudge. From The BBC.
Syria conflict: US officials withdraw troops after IS ‘defeat’
The Trump administration says US troops are being withdrawn from Syria, after the president said the Islamic State (IS) group had been “defeated”.
I can only hope this is an accurate reflection of circumstances on the ground. The limited coverage in the American media might even mean this is a positive story that could even reflect well on the President.
NOT TO MENTION: Women Who Love Trump: His approval among female Republicans is 93%—higher than among GOP men. Some people can at least see that politics is not about absolutes but about the alternatives. And every alternative to PDT ought to terrify you about the future.
