Consider this week’s news beyond the jobs report, which showed unemployment ticking up to 3.6 per cent, still near a 50-year low. Manufacturing is the smallest percentage of GDP it has been in 70 years, according to a new Commerce Department report. The manufacturing sector is in an earnings recession, with second-quarter profits down 9 per cent, stocks underperforming the S&P 500 as third-quarter reports roll in, and another profit drop expected in the fourth quarter, according to CFRA Research. 

And coal companies! Murray Energy, the largest US coal producer, filed for bankruptcy this week, the 8th coal company to do so in the last year. Coal’s share of the market for US electricity fuel has fallen by half, to about 24 per cent, since 2000. 

These are Trump’s tribe, or so we’re told. They’re why he carried Ohio by eight points in 2016, and gave him narrow wins in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Yet, General Motors is closing its Lordstown plant near Youngstown, Ohio and manufacturing employment is down in all four states this year. “Get ready,” Trump promised miners in 2016. “You’re going to be working your asses off!” He promised factory workers a “new industrial revolution.’’

Not good.

Trump would use his military force if he needed to.

He certainly is not one to make idle threats.

Any country that ignored him would be making a serious mistake.

Like Iran? Syria? Russia? Turkey?

Maybe Americans don't mind a bit of trash talk from their politicians. I think they like it actually.

Who cares about some trash talk if you are managing the economy well and keeping people in jobs.

Trash talk? He was talking about women in general, for example your mother, your sister.  Do they like it actually?

Yep, he's doing well, he's just given the Eastern flank of Europe to his mate Putin, given him a stranglehold  on the middle east, destroyed the confidence of eastern europe in resisting Russian expansion, I wonder how much he owes in Russia.

Fake news?

The Independent: No evidence found to support Trump's 'whimpering terrorist' account of Baghdadi killing.

Trump called his former political rival Beto O'Rourke “nasty” and “pathetic” before saying he “quit like a dog."  Seems dog is his favourite description of someone he dislikes/hates.

Seems that he finally made a start on his wall that the Mexicans aren't paying for!

Anyway, also seems it's a bit sh!t:

'Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Trump’s border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools, opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage.

The breaches have been made using a popular cordless household tool known as a reciprocating saw that retails at hardware stores for as little as $100. When fitted with specialized blades, the saws can slice through one of the barrier’s steel-and-concrete bollards in minutes, according to the agents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the barrier-defeating techniques.

After cutting through the base of a single bollard, smugglers can push the steel out of the way, creating an adult-size gap. Because the bollards are so tall — and are attached only to a panel at the top — their length makes them easier to push aside once they have been cut and are left dangling, according to engineers consulted by The Washington Post.

 


President Trump has repeated the claim that his administration is building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border more than 200 times since assuming office. But the consistent flow of video and photos the president tweets of the wall's progress and what's actually going on at the border are very different. (Elyse Samuels/The Washington Post)
The taxpayer-funded barrier — so far coming with a $10 billion price tag — was a central theme of Trump’s 2016 campaign, and he has made the project a physical symbol of his presidency, touting its construction progress in speeches, ads and tweets. Trump has increasingly boasted to crowds in recent weeks about the superlative properties of the barrier, calling it “virtually impenetrable” and likening the structure to a “Rolls-Royce” that border crossers cannot get over, under or through.

The smuggling crews have been using other techniques, such as building makeshift ladders to scale the barriers, especially in the popular smuggling areas in the San Diego area, according to nearly a dozen U.S. agents and current and former administration officials.'

Opinions are like a certain part of the anatomy according to you.

So now you don't  like facts either.

What!

It's a laugh a minute.

Brexit, the darling of the right in the UK is just unravelling at unprecedented speed as the Tories make desperate promises to prop up their vote.

Trump's wall is going to be a noose around his neck as he flounders from one stupid bit of populism to the next

Farage was  on TV this morning, gurning and churning out his old nonsense all over again, he really is a most offensive little man, full of venom and hatred. We can only hope that he over reaches himself as he tries to field 500 plus candidates without the support of Arron Banks.

Seems Banks doesn't agree with Nige's tactic of fighting every seat and Nige was pretty dismissive of him this am on TV, as only Nige can be, I don't think Banks will wear it well or roll over quietly.
