U.S. Oil Vanishing From Chinese Tariffs Reveals America’s Clout – Bloomberg

By |

“American sanctions that will target oil exports from Iran starting in November are another risk. Concern is growing that U.S. President Donald Trump’s measures will curb the OPEC producer’s shipments at a time when production from another group member, Venezuela, is also dwindling in the midst of an economic meltdown. Both the producers are suppliers to China.

“With oil from Iran and Venezuela at risk, U.S. crude is offering Chinese refiners a good and abundant alternative,” said Sophie Shi, a Beijing-based analyst with consultant IHS Markit Ltd. “Imagine if this ideal resource was cut off. That would leave China solely dependent on Saudi Arabia, which seems too risky.””

By |

If it was Obama’s idea, why has the media been pushing against Trump so hard?

“Now that the smoke has cleared from the NATO summit meeting, the most tangible result is apparent: President Trump advanced President Barack Obama’s initiative to keep the allies on track to shoulder a more equitable share of NATO’s costs. Mr. Trump even signed on to a tough statement directed at Russia. For once he saw eye to eye with his predecessor,” the Times wrote in its own editorial.

What war with Iran would actually look like

By |

“Ultimately, the only way military force could stop Iran from going nuclear is if the US committed to a more or less indefinite war.

“To fulfill the stated objective of ensuring that Iran never acquires a nuclear bomb,” the Wilson Center report finds, “the U.S. would need to conduct a significantly expanded air and sea war over a prolonged period of time, likely several years.””

San Francisco To Allow Russians To Vote….and Chinese, Syrians, Iranians, etc…

By |

“She said she is not certain if the non-citizen voter registration can be kept private from the federal government because all voting records are public information. She added that the voting records should be open to the public to ensure the non-citizen voters are legitimate people.

“I think in this case in particular, what is very risky is that we don’t know where this president will go,” she said. “Are there risks involved? Absolutely. But quite frankly, there are risks involved for all of us with the Trump Administration,””
