WHITE PILL: (((Gary Cohn))) Resigns Over Tariff Issue

Three things should be understood immediately by anybody trying anything even remotely resembling a Populist/Nationalist system of rule.

  1. Free trade is one of the most devastating economic models known to man. In reality, it’s the macro version of lending out $100 under the honor system to a dignified Colored gentlemen you come across in the ghetto.
  2. Tariffs of some sort have always existed as a means of defense for the artisans, craftsmen, and workers of any society – even Bronze Age civilizations practiced this policy.
  3. Allowing a hedge-fund Jew into your Administration is akin to committing seppuku on your agenda – ninety-nine times out of a hundred you’ll see this figure attempt to crush any attempt at a protectionist regime.

Now we just need to wait a short bit of time to see whether Donald Trump grasps these three key points on a long-term basis – he seems to have a basic understanding of the first two so long as (((certain elements))) are kept from whispering in his ear.

CNBC:

White House chief economic advisor Gary Cohn has resigned from President Donald Trump’s administration.

The former Goldman Sachs president and free trade advocate Cohn, whose departure date will come in a few weeks, decided to quit after Trump announced he would impose stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

In a prepared statement, Cohn said, “It has been an honor to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular the passage of historic tax reform.”

“I am grateful to the President for giving me this opportunity and wish him and the Administration great success in the future,” Cohn said.

In his own statement, Trump said, “Gary has been my chief economic advisor and did a superb job in driving our agenda, helping to deliver historic tax cuts and reforms and unleashing the American economy once again.

“He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people.”

Let’s keep it real here, Donald.

Cohn’s “dedicated service” amounted to over a year of subversion over tariffs that should have been announced before the end of January 2017, as well as exhausting efforts meant to pass a trickle-down tax cut benefiting the hyper-wealthy.

Cohn clashed with Trump’s protectionist advisors on the issue of tariffs.

At a meeting with steel and aluminum executives last Thursday where Trump announced the move, Cohn argued against it, warning about price increases for steel and aluminum products, according to a person in the room.

It’s the same argument made by pro-immigration traitors when they tell us that the price of lettuce will rise 25 cents a head if we were to deport a few million Hispanics.

Cohn also faced pressure to step down following Trump’s defiant response to violence at a white nationalist rally in August. In an FT interview published that month, Cohn said he faced pressure both to leave Trump’s White House and to stay in it. He even drafted a resignation letter, according to The New York Times.

The economic advisor told the FT that the White House “must do better” following Trump’s widely criticized response to violence at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Like Hunter, I felt a sense of dread when I first heard of Cohn’s rise, although at the time I admit that I was unwilling to shake off the warm fuzzy feeling that accompanied the Election win.

It was a mistake, and eventually I started to ask myself why Trump would promote an executive from a company that was routinely condemned in both the Primaries and the General Election.

Because I was at least under the impression we would be moving away from the standard playbook in regards to corrupt Jewish-dominated financial institutions – not that we would be bringing their entire boardrooms into the highest levels of the government.

  1. It’ll be telling when we see who Trump names as a replacement–personally, with the way Trump is leaning now, I’m thinking it’ll be a more “America First” type that actually agrees with protectionist policy. One can hope.

    For now, I’m content to celebrate Cohn’s demise.

    • Navarro would be the best option, Jew Kudlow would be a semi clownshow of Cohn’s tenure, and Andy Puzder would be a slap in the face (that’s the guy who said he’d rather hire foreigners because they enjoy working for dirt poor wages).

  2. Yes, and Trump’s had a hard-on for Kudlow ever since he praised Trump’s tax plan during the campaign. That’s the pick I’m most afraid of, as it has a pretty good chance of actually happening.

    • Kudlow would be just as bad, that guys is just another (((globalist))), Kudlow has been pushing the free-trade scam for decades, totally full of crap, only things of (((Wall-Street))). I would hope Trump would be smarter, but hard to say.

  3. I am happy to hear this news. Free-Trade has been the biggest scam in the countries history. I see cities all over America destroyed by it, where you can only hope for a job at the Walmart. Worse, is media lies about this issue. Left and Right wing talking heads will debate about why jobs are disappearing but for decades kept the word “Tariff” an unspoken word. The entire mainstream media has been bought off, even NPR. I have found even some so called Libertarians are against Tariffs, making me think they are just as corrupt. They say talking points like “trade war” or “tariffs” caused the great depression; its all nonsense. They also cover up the fact that America always had Tariffs, and that is how the government got revenue before the federal Income tax. I looked at the history of the Tariff rate in the U.S, and after the civil war; was around 25%, dropped a lot after WW2, and by 1990 there were almost none, and we have seen what has happened the country. It is common sense, you can’t have free trade with countries that make less per worker, and who’s dollar is worth less, its just common sense, and anyone who understands basic supply and demand theory would know that. But the people have been confused by a media who is 100% liars and bought off. It is the people against the (((global mafia))).

    • yea; but then what would our troops and Afghanis do for work? but yes, would stimulate domestic production.

  4. Fair trade, not free trade. I’m no economist but running $350 billion annual trade defecits with China (to cite but one example) cannot be a good thing for American workers or manfacturers. However, it’s a very good thing for the globalists and speculators.

  5. What’s bizarre about this resignation is that Trump ran on a platform of economic protectionism and tariffs. This was not some out-of-the-blue policy about-face by Trump. He’s simply following through on his campaign promises.

    The following is a direct quote from “Donald Trump’s Contract with the American Voter” that set forth his platform before the election:

    “Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.”

  6. Cohn says “It has been an honor to serve my country” but neglects to specify which country…The one which has made him so wealthy or the toxic pustule perched on the eastern end of the Mediterranean, the one which directs American foreign policy? It’s a toughy.

    • He was honored to be offered a position where he could be privy to Trump’s trade plans and policies before they were made public so that he could pass that info along to the happy merchant network who will use it to beat the goyim to the punch and rake in the Somalian$.

  7. It would have been more to Trump’s credit if this creep has been forced out. Rather, he quit in a fit over American trade prospering. I expect Trump to follow orders and appoint another of his like.

  8. Tarriffs are not necessary between countries with simular wages and production costs as they hold no advantages over each other. China, Thailand and perhaps Mexico on the other hand, need tarriffs against them as they have lower wages, costs and safety standards. Tarriffs against these nations discourages offshoring to these countries as any products they produce in China, etc will cost more when they’re imported in, making their products more expensive to the customer than if they’d remained local, removing the advantage of going offshore. Its hard to explain, but basically, Trump would be foolish to put trade barriers on nations with no obvious advantages , or differences to that in the U.S.

  9. I’m glad that repulsive Hebe is gone – but I fear it’s not gone. It did it’s damage with the tax bill, but I’m afraid a repliacant jew will take it’s place.

  10. The Trump tax bill was a bribe to be paid later. Most of the legislators are multimillionaires, their attitude is to pay themselves a big bribe and if they are voted out of office, that is just tough as the benefits will continue for the rest of their lives. Trump has bought into the Obama economic plan. If the economy goes to hell Trump has no excuse.

  11. The US will win a trade war. less trade fewer deficits. frankly we are losing now. we cant lose any worse.

  12. It appears that the economists are the people who know the least about how things have been going. Or bare minimum they just put out the overly complicated propaganda that the hyper wealthy want.
