Trump Kicks China Out Of Controlling 2nd Busiest US Shipping Container Port For “National Security”

from Silver Doctors:

The port is being sold to an Australian company in a “tremendous feat and a huge victory for U.S. national security”…

China may be waltzing into the US gold futures market tomorrow, but they’re packing their bags when it comes to the communist nation’s control of the second busiest container port in the United States.

EXCLUSIVE – Polish MP: Soros ‘Wants to Rule the World’ as ‘Master of Puppets’

by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart:

The left-liberal establishment is attacking Poland’s conservative government ahead of national elections on Sunday because its success “damages the Soros Plan”, according to Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczyński.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the outspoken Polish parliamentarian said it was “obvious” that the international interest in his country’s elections is a result of “globalist” distaste for its conservative-populist Law and Justice Party (PiS) government and its pro-sovereignty, anti-mass migration agenda, which Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has described as “far from neoliberalism, and equally far from socialism”.

Did Everything Just Change?

by Adam Taggart, Peak Prosperity:

How material are this week’s QE & China deal announcements?

It’s hard to imagine a more euphoric end to the week for bulls.

Two weeks ago I issued a report titled Realistically, What’s Left To Power Asset Prices Higher? which claimed the bulls only hope was for a near-term resumption of QE (quantitative easing, aka “money printing”) or a China trade deal.

Well, this week they got both.

Jerome Powell announced Wednesday that the U.S. Federal Reserve will resume expanding its balance sheet to the tune of $60 billion per month. And just a few hours ago, the Trump administration announced it had reached a partial trade agreement with its Chinese counterparts.

Here’s How The New U.S.-China Trade Talks May End

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

With the U.S. and China in the midst of a new round of high level trade talks, this Thursday marks 22 months since tariffs were launched and the trade war began. Far from being “easy to win”, the trade war has lasted far longer than most analysts in the mainstream and alternative media predicted. In past articles, I have warned that the trade war itself is probably not meant to be won at all; rather, it is a massive distraction and a convenient scapegoat as global banks set the implosion of the Everything Bubble in motion. I continue to stand by this assessment, which is why I think it is unlikely that the current talks with China will accomplish much of anything.
