Patrick's predictions for Trump

By someone else   May 18, 9:40am   7 links   4,325 views   80 comments   watch (1)   quote      

* No evidence of collusion with Russia will ever be produced, because there isn't any.
* Comey's own sworn testimony that he was never pressured will be used against him and the whole Comey thing will be dropped.
* The media will continue fabricating a new anti-Trump story every couple of days for the rest of Trump's presidency.
* More and more of the public will come to the realization that the press really is on a witch hunt, motivated by intergalactic levels of coastal elite butt-hurt.
* Trump will turn out to be nearly as bad as Obama in serving the plutocracy.
* And yet Trump will in fact accomplish some of the things he promised, such as actual enforcement of immigration law and replacement of Obamacare.

Of course I could be wrong, but those are my expectations at the moment.

Sure-this took 5 seconds.

A) That is not a link to what he said originally. It is a subsequent interview.
B) Most of that is about his record of what he did in the private sector. None of it says he would default on Treasury debt. Monetizing is a way of paying back at a discount, as many countries have done.

Again, I don't even support the idea, but your partisan distortions put me in the odd position of defending him. That was one of the Democrats' biggest problems throughout the campaign, and it backfired terribly: Democrats and their partisan MSM kept distorting candidate Trump, and ended up campaigning against a fiction that existed only in their own echo chamber. Outside the echo chambers, people saw a campaign between two partisan patronage networks, each reciting its own fictions.

Instead of claiming credit for finding a link to something other than what he said originally, go back and find what he said originally.

Ah, I see what you did there. Your selective screen grab omitted most of what he said in the interview that you linked:

Quick: "I understand that you've done this in business deals, but are you suggesting we would negotiate with the U.S. credit in such a way?"

Trump: "No, I think this. I think there are times for us to refinance. We refinance debt with longer term. Because you know, we owe so much money. … I could see long-term renegotiations, where we borrow long-term at very low rates." ...

Quick: "But let's be clear. I mean, you're not talking about renegotiating sovereign bonds that the U.S. has already issued?"

Trump: "No. I don't want to renegotiate the bonds. But I think you can do discounting, I think, you know, depending on where interest rates are, I think you can buy back. You can -- I'm not talking about with a renegotiation, but you can buy back at discounts, you can do things with discounts. … I would refinance debt. I think we should refinance longer-term debt."

Open market operations happen all the time, including via the Federal Reserve. That's been going on for more than a century, buying and selling Treasury bonds via open market operations. The Fed has a whole committee expressly for this purpose, the "open market committee." Printing money to buy bonds is called monetizing, and buying some bonds while selling others is a long established tool to manage the yield curve.

Yes, that would be you, our MSM-controlled hall monitor tasked with disrupting and casting aspersions upon truthful and thoughtful conversations at Patnet. Always asking for proof or examples that are readily available to anyone with an internet connection, only to discount it when faithfully presented. Building numerous straw men to justify insane logic, and accusing everyone else of doing the same. Faithfully championing the unceasing stream of blatantly false and highly spun propaganda that comes from the MSM.
These are your hallmarks.

Thanks, @Quigley, that was very kind of you.

I've also tracked down an earlier WaPo interview transcript, Bob Woodward (BW) interviewing Donald Trump (DT):

DT: ""I don’t mind taking care of Japan. But they have to help us out more, monetarily. We can’t protect the entire world. You look at our military budget, it’s massive compared to any other country. But what are we doing? We’re taking care of the military needs of all these countries. And these countries are much richer than us. We’re not a rich country. We’re a debtor nation. We’ve got to get rid of — I talked about bubble. We’ve got to get rid of the $19 trillion in debt.

BW: How long would that take?

DT: I think I could do it fairly quickly, because of the fact the numbers . . . .

BW: What’s fairly quickly?

DT: Well, I would say over a period of eight years. And I’ll tell you why... I’m renegotiating all of our deals, Bob. The big trade deals that we’re doing so badly on. With China, $505 billion this year in trade. We’re losing with everybody. And a lot of those deals — a lot of people say, how could the politicians be so stupid? It’s not that they’re stupid. It’s that they’re controlled by lobbyists and special interests who want those deals to be made."

So, describing a context in which we pay to protect trade partners with whom we run trade deficits, and we borrow money from them to finance protecting them, he said he could negotiate better deals. He didn't say default, nor anything of the sort. In another interview he said "discounts", referring to long established tools to monetize and manage the yield curve by refinancing. There is nothing "bizarre" nor "nonsensical" about what he said actually, but WaPo misled readers by using both of those words in headlines to distort what he said.

And, again, I don't even support monetizing the debt. Democrats could have argued persuasively that we should not monetize, but instead they chose to distort what the Republican nominee said and then to campaign against a strawman of their own imaginations. They sacrificed credibility and then failed to fool enough voters to win.

I'm sure you could track down a lot of Trump interviews where he doesn't talk about renegotiating the US debt. Not sure how it relates to the topic at hand though.

And I'm not really interested in whether you support monetizing the debt. We're talking about how the MSM does or does not mischaracterize Trump's statements.

lol--I ask because the Trump crowd continually makes factually incorrect statements, but I want to give them the benefit of the doubt and ask if they have any examples. Generally none are given, or if they are, they show something completely different than what was stated. I'm sorry you can't see that.

How are any of them showing how MSM mischaracterizes what Trump says??? One was about Rosie ODonnell being punked by a fake video. One was about twitter users responses to a fake story. One was a news story that confirmed everything the MSM said, but opined that it wasn't a big deal because the President has the power to declassify information.

None had anything about MSM mischaracterizing Trump.

I saw what he said, on video, at the time. The reason you don't believe he said what he said is because you've been hypnotized by partisan headlines, which you repeat. By denying the obvious, and inventing or distorting allegations unsupported by facts, you alienate people and put reasonable observers in the position of defending Donald Trump. It's very odd. I saw interviews during the campaign: voters said they had seen scary MSM stories about him and had then seen with their own eyes that those stories were false. Many of them stopped believing the MSM, and decided to vote for him.

Curious2, my interpretation of that is that he would use the threat of not paying back in full to renegotiate. The goal of the renegotiation would be to force the other party to offer us a good deal on (below market) on long term rates. Otherwise, no need to negotiate. Trump is expert on getting paid without getting paid.

Anyway, after reviewing this, I can see your point about the media exaggerating. That explains why it never became a bigger story.

No matter what Trump does, however bad, one third of the country (including Patrick) and the right wing media will always label it liberal hysteria.

If he steps out on fifth avenue and shoots someone, it will be, "oh there the liberals go again with their hysteria"

This is guaranteed. IF he accidentally starts world war 3, it will be, "oh there the liberals go again with their hysteria"

I guess this was predictable back in 2016. I don't believe it will ever be a majority view though. Thankfully Brietbart and Fox don't have that much power.

Curious2, my interpretation of that is that he would...

Thanks for your comment, but I didn't interpret his remarks that way, especially since he didn't use any such words. He did say "discount," which I interpreted to mean the usual tools of monetizing and open market operations. He also talked about trade and defense, so I interpreted that to mean he'd use trade and defense treaties to try to get more $$$ for America, which might include debt forgiveness. All of that would be legal, and consistent with what he and others have advocated for a long time.

Some OTHER Republicans, including in Congress, tried to threaten default by not increasing the debt ceiling. I've never seen President Trump advocate anything like that.

Respectfully, I think the exaggerated headlines were intended to skew your interpretation of what Donald Trump actually said. I've been reading Scott Adams' blog; he is a cartoonist but also has a degree in economics and trained as a hypnotist, and he says intelligence and education are no defense against the hypnosis and persuasion the MSM have been using. After seeing too many exaggerated headlines, I learned to ignore them; if I want to know what the President said, I look it up on YouTube or Twitter.

The thing I find shocking is that so many Democrats welcome the prospect of President Pence. That makes no sense at all. There is no way to argue that would be an improvement for anyone other than the MSM who have sacrificed their credibility. They want to think of themselves as the smart and well informed and credible people in the room, and every day the President proves he isn't Hitler, it drives them ever more crazy.

Those people are either blinded by their hatred or scared over what kind of damage Trump could do. I'd take the freak show we are watching over Pence any day, and I never figured that Trump would do any permanent damage. I am surprised by Trump's incompetence lately, though. He should lawyer up and stop saying stupid shit. IMO, he's showing the same type of arrogance and ignorance that made Hillary so careless with email. He has all the resources in the world to get help. He should use them.

Not yet, but I'm experiencing some of it in real life: friends with postgraduate education insisting adamantly on demonstrably false statements.

One friend with an M.S. in engineering insisted that Hillary had won a majority in 2016. I said she hadn't. He insisted pedantically that "mathematically" she had. In reality, she got 48% of the 55% who voted. When I pointed out those facts and that 70% of the citizens eligible to vote for her had chosen not to, he conceded grudgingly but insisted the 70% of his fellow adult citizens could not possibly have had any rational reason for not voting HIllary.

Another with a JD and LLM had literally forgotten the difference between a majority and a plurality. He asked me, "What's the difference?"

Both went on and on about nuclear war. It was a rerun of LBJ's "Daisy ad" against Barry Goldwater. Hillary was a "Goldwater Girl" back then, and her team appear to have remembered the lesson: terrify people with the image of nuclear war, attach that somehow emotionally (but not rationally) to your opponent, and count on panic to preclude reason. LBJ beat Goldwater, and the world's largest nuclear power escalated an illegal war in southeast Asia against a proxy of the world's second largest nuclear power. The 2016 campaign seemed like a rerun, with the Democrats promising more ground troops and illegally shooting down Russian planes in Syria. I can't imagine a worse idea than paying for hijrah while also deliberately trying to spark a lethal war between the two most formidable western powers, but somehow many Americans are hypnotized to do Nazis' Muslims' bidding, as per The Sum of All Fears (where the villains were actual Nazis, rather than their doctrinal close cousins, Muslims).

Journalists Botch Yet-Another Anti-Trump Fact Check
Washington Examiner:

Trump tweeted at 8:35 am on Feb. 10, "The failing @nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying 'Mr.Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov.14.' We spoke at length yesterday!"

Members of the press pounced, and many tried to fact-check Trump's tweet with screen grabs from the updated online version of the Times' story.

But the facts here lean more in Trump's favor.

The Friday print edition claimed incorrectly that the president hadn't spoken with Xi. The president responded Friday morning to the story. Journalists then tried to "gotcha" Trump with the online edition of the report, but fact-checking him with the retroactively updated online version of a story that appeared differently in print doesn't seem the way to go.

The online edition of the Times' story carries no editor's note or clarification noting that it has undergone significant changes.

A lawsuit has been filed against the left-wing BuzzFeed by a tech company that was smeared in the phony anti-Trump dossier the left-wing outlet published last month.

Most of your "fake news MSM lies" sounds like fairly trivial items leaked from the White House and then denied by the White House.

I wonder how many were true ?

Did you try to find the most trivial example you could find and then paint the rest with a broad brush? A Lefty asked for the list, and I produced it. Now you're too lazy to research for yourself and you've just made up your mind through your own cognitive dissonance? Cute. Go put me on ignore and find a safe space.

They want to think of themselves as the smart and well informed and credible people in the room, and every day the President proves he isn't Hitler, it drives them ever more crazy.

Exactly! We cry Liberal MSM hysteria because that's exactly what it fucking is!

Patrick,
Almost deleted your email.

Before one can start with a solution we need to realize the problem.

Maybe a couple of solutions.
STOP! Doing the same thing over & over.
Stop all the fucking & thinking that this planet has infinite resources,creating offspring that pump more heat into the environment,produce more trash & pollution that contaminates the planet's water,air & soil.
Stop creating $10,000 out of a $1,000 deposit.
Stop living an economic delusional theology that is based on fiat currency,the shit's not real.
Stop thinking that the status quo will continue forever.

It would be nice to have a list of ten direct things we could do to fix the any of our problems in a few days or weeks.
MAGA is probably not one of the ten.

Maybe we could just STOP!

How about cease & desist.
Bombing & killing innocent citizens of other countries.It might piss them off.
The military industrial complex.

Continue to look for easy answers in a FUBARed pretzel logic culture.

MSM hysteria

True though the MSM aren't really liberal: they're pushing Saudi wars and hijrah all the time. Some among their audience might like to call themselves liberal, just like President Obama said bombing Libya wasn't "hostilities." It's Orwellian. We can't honestly claim that bombing people does not constitute hostilities, and the 90% of the "liberal" media can't honestly call themselves liberal.
