$200 USD per barrel perhaps if a war breaks out between Iran and Israel.

And how much higher will oil company stocks be traded for if anything remotely close to an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities happens?

Finally, what will happen to Israel if Israeli Army doesn’t clean up Iran’s nuclear facilities in the first strike?

Ocasio-Cortez thinks America needs another Great Deal via massive deficit spending to revive the U.S. economy. She thinks that country can borrow as much as it needs because the deficit and the debt are not the problem for the U.S. The austerity is. Besides, she believes America can print as much as it wants because the U.S. dollar is the reserve currency of the world and everyone loves the green backs.

She has a degree in economy from the Boston University.

Well, there is a small problem with this line of thinking.

Actually, a few.

The structure of America’s economy,high labor costs, globalization, lousy K-12 education system, massive low skill immigrants and the non competitive nature of America’s work force will not grow U.S. economy fast enough to negate the negative effect of an uncontrolled deficit spending.

The rising interest cycle for the next three decades makes deficit spending a DOA idea.

Republicans used to be the steward of financial responsibility when it comes to government spending. Trump bullied Ryan and fellow Republicans to soak the rich, give six-pack Joes crumbs to pick on, and pile up national debt to unprecedented level in the next 7 years. Fiscal responsibility has gone out of the window and they are just like the Democrats.

Let the U.S. borrow: the Republicans borrow to build sophisticated fighter jets and $15 billion aircraft carriers. They make the rich richer.

The Democrats borrow to give the money to the low skilled and lazy Americans. They can’t compete but they know where the money comes from.

Let the binge party begin.

Trump wanted to invade Venezuela. He should invade this country too July 4, 2018

America invaded Panama and Grenada in the 1980’s because it could. Few countries objected because they didn’t know about the invasions until they were over.

Trump wanted to invade Venezuela in August, 2017 because Venezuela’s president was a corrupt dictator and a very bad guy, according to Trump’s conversations with his aids published in an AP report.

Well, Venezuela has a lot of oil just like another country which was invaded by the U.S. in 2003, Iraq. Lo and behold, Iraq was ruled by a rich and corrupt dictator: Saddam Hussein, before he was captured and later executed.

Let me see: Russia’s president, Mr. Putin, has probably amassed a lot of money. He is viewed by many as a man who ruled Russia with a strong hand. Many reports have presented evidences that Mr. Putin has ordered his guys to carry out assassinations against his political opponents both in and out of Russia.

Shall we draw the parallel one step further and point out that Russia is one of the top crude oil producers in the world with daily oil production well over ten million barrels every day.

By now, you must have noticed a pattern here: a rich male dictator who rules a country with a lot of oil in the ground.

Trump should invade Russia too.

Other than wasting tax payers’ money.

Will the U.S. attack China or Russia one day?

No.

Will China or Russia attack America?

No.

And will the other 24 countries join the U.S. to bomb China and Russia too?

No .

So, why would the U.S. practice something that it won’t use any time soon.

Trump, the so-called THE greatest negotiator ever, flexed his negotiation muscles on the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, over a period of more than a year. It went down the history of the mankind more or less like this:

Trump; This guy is a bad dude. But, I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him.

Kim: See my missiles fly.

Trump: This guy is a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him.

Kim: Check out my missiles.

Trump: Kim Jong Un is a little rocket man.

Kim: Trump is a dotard.

Kim: Watch my nuclear test goes off.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Kim: “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire.” Trump didn’t know what dotard was. His guys Googled and they laughed.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: I am not a dotard and to provide that I’m willing to talk to Kim.

Kim: Let’s meet on 6/12 for tea.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: Kim was dragging his feet. Kim was no good and I didn’t want to talk to him anymore. He couldn’t be trusted. Let’s just calledl that damn meeting off.

Kim: I’m very serious, dotard. See, I’ve completely dismantled our nuclear testing site. No one couldn’t get in now.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: I am very sorry, Jong Un. Please forgive me. It’s my bad but it’s Kelly and Tillerson’s fault. Please be patient. I’ll make it happen.

Kim: I’m not paying for my trip.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: Kim’s country does love him and he’s got a great personality. He’s a funny guy, he’s very smart, he’s a great negotiator. He loves his people, not that I’m surprised by that. I am going to stop the joint military exercise with S. Korea and Japan.

Kim: That’s about right. Trump, you are forgiven and you are a good dotard. I will check in with my boss in Beijing later and get back to you. You know that I’ve made too many nuclear bombs and missiles.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Lately, Kim has been reported to have laughed his socks (actually his a%&) off.

Moon and Abe were stunned.

Trump remained to be a dotard.

American navy got a few days off.

Korean and Japanese navies got lost in the Pacific Oceanlooking for American aircraft carriers.

American tax payers saved a few bucks.

The dotard Trump waked up and realized that he had been out smarted by the rocket man.

Kim promptly executed

by firing squad

a s

enior military officer who said that “they no longer needed to suffer and tighten our belts to make rockets and nuclear weapons.”

Trump won’t talk to the rocket man and no one in the White House is allowed to mention Jong Un’s name or Jong Un’s nickname in front of Trump anymore.

Sourc; CNBC https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/12/china-is-having-a-big-day-after-trump-kim-summit-ex-diplomats.html

It will be a wonderful day for China and Koreas when American troops are completely out of the Korean peninsula. America’s defense budget will probably shrink by about $1.5 billion per year too.

Of course, America has about 50,000 troops and an aircraft carrier fleet stationed in Japan which probably cost the U.S. tax payers $5.5 billion each year. Well, has any American asked just what kind of return has America received from that kind of investment for the past 50 years? Of course, Japanese economy got an unwanted boost from American tax payers and local bars saw a bunch of drunken American soldiers over the weekends.

But, what did American taxpayers get other than some jobs in defense related companies such as Honeywell, Raytheon, LM and GD? Not much more!

It hasn’t worked on Kim Jong En yet.

But will it work on Iran?

These are America’s demands for Iran delivered by Pompeo after Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran Nuclear Treaty :

The question seems to be this:

Are Americans willing to die for Israel?

https://theconversation.com/why-china-cant-meet-trumps-200-billion-trade-demand-96888

There are ways to reduce trade deficitsif you look hard enough:

  1. America can sell these to China and reduce trade deficits very quickly: F-35s, F-22s, MQ9 Reaper Drones, Black Knights, XM2010 sniper rifles, THAAD anti-ballistic missile defense systems and Ford class aircraft carriers.
  1. Alternatively, Trump can order American people stop buying products made in China. That will change the trade deficit to a trade surplu

Actually, an trade deficit of $357 billion isn’t such a big deal, it’s only ~2% of the U.S. economy. Besides, if it won’t for the deflation China exports to the U.S., American people will be a lot poorer than they are now.

On the other hand, with daily products more expensive to buy, American people may learn to live within their means and cut up a few credit cards in their purses or wallets.

That may not be a bad thing if American people learn some financial discipline for a change.
