    Is a tourniquet good for the human body? Might you need it to save your life? It used to be accepted that you can't have open borders while you have a welfare state and it is just as true that you can't have free trade while you have a regulatory state but it seems that some libertarians think that the destruction of America is a good thing and that it will result in increased liberty. They are the idiots. Let's just go ahead and have open borders in a welfare state and free trade in a regulatory state and let the most liberty oriented society in the world be destroyed and replaced with a communist dictatorship because perfect free trade (which we can't have thanks to Chinese intervention anyway) is ideal in a perfect libertarian country that we don't have.

    Michigan state representative Jim Lower is advertising himself as a pro-Trump conservative, but he is closely tied to former Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, who led the ‘Never Trump’ movement in Michigan with Reps. Justin Amash and Fred Upton heading into the 2016 election. Lower even boasted that he would model himself after Justin Amash when he first won elected office, claiming that following in Amash’s lead would “give the citizens in the county some input and see each and every vote.” Lower claims “he grew “disenchanted” with Amash after he came out against Trump after repeatedly voting for Amash and helping with his campaigns, but the two men share a powerful close ally in former LG and state house rep. Brian Calley, who was the ringleader of the ‘Never Trump’ movement in 2016. With just a month before the Nov. 2016 elections, Calley was joined by U.S. Reps. Justin Amash and Fred Upton to throw Donald Trump under the bus, attempting to leverage their power to give the presidency to Hillary Clinton following the now-infamous leaked audio of Trump outside the set of Access Hollywood. “The latest revelations about Donald Trump and his past make it impossible for me to maintain support of him… I intend to write in the name of Governor Pence and focus my time, effort and support on the state House elections,” Calley said at the time. Despite the best efforts of Calley, Amash and Upton, Trump still won Michigan in surprising fashion by a narrow margin and became the 45th President of the United States. Although Calley led the ‘Never Trump’ movement in Michigan, that didn’t dissuade Lower from continuing his close association with the man who he considers a lifetime friend.

    Other countries aren't as stupid and collaborationist as our leaders have been and China has targeted us because they want to rule the world and we are in their way. ChiCom government intervention in the marketplace is as bad or worse than domestic government intervention in the marketplace, they tariff our industries and use non-tariff barriers more than any other country in the world and they subsidize their industries, in order to protect ourselves from their economic warfare we must cancel out their intervention or ban trade with them entirely, canceling out their intervention is preferable. Our own taxes and regulations are a problem but they aren't the only problem but even if they were that doesn't make allowing the destruction of America and its conquest by globalists and communists while we try to fix it is a good idea. It used to be accepted that you can't have open borders while you have a welfare state and it is just as true that you can't have free trade while you have a regulatory state but it seems that some libertarians think that the destruction of America is a good thing and that it will result in increased liberty.

    China didn't just use tariffs, they have many non-tariff barriers and and subsidies for their industries. It is bad long term economic policy for them but it was very effective trade warfare, just like all warfare is bad economic policy unless you use it to conquer another country and loot its resources or to protect your own country from being looted the Chinese sought to use trade warfare to conquer and loot America and we must fight back to protect ourselves from being looted. It is also not so certain that we are paying the costs of Trump's tariffs, the Chinese lower their prices and/or get government subsidies in order to try and keep marketshare and they pay some or all of the tariffs.

    Just a week before OPEC and allies were set to meet in Vienna to discuss the fate of the production cut deal expiring in less than two weeks, participants are still debating when to hold the crucial talks, with OPEC discussing a proposal to delay the meeting to July 11 and 12, S&P Global Platts reported on Tuesday, citing two sources. While OPEC and Russia have been busy trying to assure the markets that they would be working toward a solution to rebalance the oil market, reports started to emerge in the past few weeks that the parties can’t even agree on whether to hold the meeting as scheduled on June 25-26 or to push it into July. Reports have it that Russia has requested a delay of the June meeting into early July so that it would be held after the G20 summit in late June, while Iran, which is at odds with the Gulf Arab members of OPEC, has reportedly told the cartel that it wouldn’t agree to a postponement of the key meeting. Khalid al-Falih, the energy minister of OPEC’s largest producer and de facto leader, Saudi Arabia, reiterated on Sunday his hope that the cartel would reach a deal to extend the cuts into the second half of the year at a meeting that will probably be held in the first week of July. The latest rumored meeting slot—July 11 and 12—would be a week later than what the Saudis hinted two days ago, but it would be okay for Iran, whose Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh said on Monday that the Islamic Republic “would confirm rescheduling of the upcoming OPEC meeting only if it was to be held on July 10, 11 or 12 from originally June 25.” Zangeneh doesn’t want the date changed to July 3-4, as Russia had reportedly originally requested, because of scheduling conflicts. According to an OPEC delegate who spoke to Bloomberg, the cartel proposed the July 10-12 dates to its members and would wait for their replies. Judging from the comments of various OPEC and non-OPEC officials and ministers and from reports from sources, the OPEC+ group won’t make a decision about the production cuts by the time those cuts expire at the end of June.

    Interesting... It does gives us both a two way street. We can better communicate with them, and they can better communicate with us. Most human / animal communication problems come from humans, not animals. We just dont know how to listen. Or maybe we have been too distracted to bother listening to what they have to say. Ive seen nothing build up a dogs self esteem and self confidence more than the dog knowing there are those of us who DO listen and DO pay attention to both wants and needs. One pleasing thing about these eye muscles is that I know damn good and well when they are smiling.

    Voting practices in the Peterborough by-election won by Labour were worthy of corrupt ex-Soviet state Kazakhstan, independent observers warned last night. They said the sight of people photographing their completed ballot papers was something they had only ever seen in Kazakhstan ‘many years ago’. The oil-rich state has until recently had only one president since it broke with the Soviet Union in 1991, with claims that even last Sunday’s election was rigged. Labour’s victory by just 683 votes over the Brexit Party in Peterborough was mired in controversy last week after The Mail on Sunday revealed claims that a convicted vote rigger was at the centre of the party’s campaign. Cambridgeshire Police have since revealed they are investigating five complaints of electoral malpractice, including bribery. Now election experts Democracy Volunteers have raised fresh concerns over the by-election. John Ault, director of the organisation, said he had seen people photographing their completed ballot papers in what he suggested could show they were fulfilling a ‘contract’ to prove how they had voted. He told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I have observed many elections across Europe and only once in Kazakhstan many years ago did I see what I saw happen three times in Peterborough. ‘There are signs up warning you not to take photographs and these were not selfies celebrating having voted but people photographing their cross on the ballot paper.’

    More than 70 conservative mayors and councillors pledged support for President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday in the latest sign that France’s centre-Right opposition party, The Republicans, is in danger of extinction. Some 31 per cent of party supporters favour an alliance with Mr Macron’s LREM party, while 26 per cent would back an alliance with Marine Le Pen’s far-Right National Rally, according to a poll published in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper. Senior conservatives fear that Mr Macron is taking over the centre-Right while hard nationalists swing behind the National Rally following The Republicans’ drubbing in the European elections. The party took just eight per cent of the vote — an even more humiliating defeat than that suffered by the UK Conservative Party. Ms Le Pen’s niece, Marion Maréchal, is urging mainstream conservatives to join an alliance with the National Rally. In the latest sign that rank-and-file Republicans are defecting to Mr Macron, 72 Right-wing and centre-Right mayors and councillors from across France announced their support for the centrist president in a joint letter published in the Journal du Dimanche. “We are among those who desire the all-important success of France, which is why we want the president of the Republic and the government to succeed, as nothing will be built on their failure,” the letter said.

    rchbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is confirming that, as papal nuncio, he received complaints of homosexual predation and harassment by Msgr. Walter Rossi, rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. "Monsignor Rossi is, without a doubt, a member of the 'gay mafia,'" Viganò said in remarks to Italian journalist Marco Tosatti on Saturday. The former papal nuncio noted Rossi's connection to two proven homosexual predators: Bp. Michael Bransfield, his immediate predecessor as rector of the basilica — suspended after evidence that he sexually assaulted seminarians and also misappropriated millions of dollars for personal expenses; and then-Cdl. Theodore McCarrick, who handpicked Rossi to replace Bransfield. "In fact, his successor as rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Walter Rossi, he was appointed there by McCarrick the same year that Bransfield was appointed bishop," Viganò went on to say. This fact is confirmed by the Arlington diocese in its newspaper, The Catholic Herald, in a July 8, 2009 article: "In 2005, he was chosen by Washington Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick to succeed Msgr. Michael Bransfield as rector, when Msgr. Bransfield was named Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston." Viganò confirmed that Rossi is a member of the homosexual current in the Church: "Monsignor Rossi is, without a doubt, a member of the 'gay mafia.' You can read about him online on The American Spectator website." In the American Spectator article, authored by George Neumayr, multiple sources alleged that Rossi had carried on a number of homosexual relationships and had sexually harassed seminarians and students from Catholic University of America (CUA), on whose board of trustees he sits.
