John Fredericks on CNN / HLN: SCOTUS decision upholding Trump travel ban is a victory for keeping Americans safe.
President Trump’s historic victory in 2016 was fueled by two issues that resonated with working Americans: curtailing illegal immigration and ending unfair trade.
These policies hammered Americans jobs and wages.
But Wall Street loves open borders and so-called “free” trade: both produce an endless supply of cheap labor and lower the cost of production, driving short-term profits at the direct expense of U.S. workers.
And China has been Wall Street’s love child.
The Chinese have been ripping off American workers for years. Political leaders on both sides of the aisle feigned concern while engaging the unholiest of alliances of all time: Republican big money donors wanted cheap labor and Democrats wanted cheap votes and big dollars from socially liberal Wall Street moneymen.
Donald J. Trump finally exposed this scam in 2016.
China’s cheating was at the heart of the problem. Trump has been saying this for thirty years.
Americans have seen their livelihoods destroyed. Their wages have been flat thanks to an unending flood of illegal immigrants and the unyielding exodus of American jobs thanks to China’s predatory trade practices.
Then, to the utter shock of the financial houses in lower Manhattan, President Trump actually started to make good on those promises.
He enacted a series of executive orders to punish China for stealing our intellectual property, threatening our national security and the very future of our nation.
Next, he went forward with a series of tariffs against China and other trade cheats, starting with aluminum and steel.
His final order was expanding tariffs aimed at protecting our industries and jobs from decimation.
His detailed list of 1,300 products, from pharmaceuticals and LED lighting to medical devices and batteries hit the industries the Chinese Communist government subsidizes and then dumps at below-production-cost in our country to crush all U.S. competitors.
China has made no secret in its plan to become the world’s #1 superpower. Its Made in China 2025 plan lays out a blue print for global domination. When China is in the driver’s seat in strategic industries, it will control the global economy and the American economy. And the President knows that.
American manufacturers and working people applauded his bold and courageous moves. They saw, finally, a President who understands their plight and who makes good on his promises.
But then the Swamp struck back. Some of the President’s top advisors, heavily influenced by Wall Street Globalists, want to keep the spigot to cheap labor and big finance deals open.
The Wall Street insiders started an unprecedented pressure campaign to abandon the President’s trade policies.
They don’t care about American factories or workers or even the future of America itself – they make profits by lending money, whether it’s to Red China or the Red, White and Blue USA. Trump’s tariffs pose a threat to their bonfire of the vanities sycophant view of self-preservation.
It’s Trump’s America First vs. Goldman Sachs’ Elites First.
The Wall Street traitors and their globalist corporations know once American jobs and industries come back, their decades old cheap labor and low wage fandango is over.
So they swung into action.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, a Goldman Sachs alum, announced, “We’re putting the trade war on hold” and said we’re putting the tariffs on hold, too.
Memo to the Treasury Secretary: We’ve been in a trade war for 30 years, and we’ve been losing. President Trump finally called in the cavalry, not to have you wave the white flag of surrender when they finally reach the front.
Mnuchin and his globalist munchkins are pushing a phony trade deal, and it’s lousy on all counts.
First, China says they will buy more American goods, but they don’t say how much or when. China has been making empty promises like this for 30 years and they never deliver.
China is playing for time, as they have all along. They know they now only need a few more years to get a lock on strategic industries and cement their position at the top of the global economic food chain.
Second, the deal is bad because we would sell China farm goods and energy, the food and raw materials it needs for its industrial economy. They would sell us value added manufactured goods. This is the arrangement Great Britain had with its colonies. Now China would be Great Britain and The United States its colony.
The Swamp creatures floated the false claim that confronting China would cost the Republicans control of the House because they would lose the Midwest farm states. This is ridiculous. Nebraska is not about to elect a Democrat to Deb Fischer’s seat, and the real battleground districts are suburbs where baristas outnumber farmers.
In fact, if Mnuchin prevails, he could cost Donald Trump re-election.
The millions of blue-collar voters, including Democrats and union members who turned out in droves to deliver a historic victory for Donald Trump would feel betrayed and stay home in 2020.
Mnuchin would give amnesty to cheating China.
That’s no less a betrayal than giving amnesty to 20 million illegal immigrants.

They work in the West Wing.
Many of the employees that make up the White House staff were entrusted by Donald J. Trump with the unique opportunity to work in the West Wing and serve the President, his agenda, the Administration and the American people.
How did they show their loyalty and gratitude? By trashing the President at every turn, leaking disparaging comments to the press, and mocking him in both private and public settings.
Their goal: to sabotage Trump’s agenda so it would never see the light of day.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
It’s a silent coup.
Now the White House rat crew is trying to use cheesy tabloid writer Michael Wolff as their assassin. Wolff is the author of “Fire and Fury,” the trash currently masquerading as a serious book.
It’s becoming more and more clear that few people came to the White House to serve the President and American people’s agenda.
Republican leaders in Virginia are frantically trying to find an alternative candidate to Corey Stewart, who seeks the party’s nomination to run against Sen. Tim Kaine (D) in 2018.
As Virginia Republicans gather Friday for their annual retreat, party leaders are alarmed at the possibility of fielding Corey Stewart as next year’s U.S. Senate nominee and, with help from the national GOP, they are maneuvering to recruit someone else to be the face of the party.
Stewart, who narrowly lost the GOP nomination for governor in June on a platform of Trumpism and what he called “Confederate heritage,” has promised a “vicious” campaign in 2018 against Sen. Tim Kaine (D), a popular former governor who is seeking a second term in a state that he helped Hillary Clinton carry by five points as her running mate in the 2016 presidential election.
Sen. Cory Gardner (Colo.), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, recently summoned former governor James S. Gilmore III to Washington to ask him to run, while Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Mike Lee (Utah) met with Del. Nick Freitas (Culpeper) to advise him on a likely campaign.
Stewart dismissed national Republicans working against him as “Mitch McConnell’s bozos,” referring to the Senate majority leader.

White House senior officials, who talked to President Trump last night, told me there is no deal on DACA with the Chuck Schumer Democrats and that the building of the wall is the cornerstone to any legislative DACA solution going forward.
“The President wants a wall along the border, and he is willing to obstruct any Congressional action that does not include it,” one senior White House official told me last night on the condition of anonymity. “There is no amnesty, there is no deal with the Democrats. A prototype of the wall is being developed now. The President won’t commit to the vehicle but there will be no amnesty – there are simply lines he won’t cross.”
The senior official also told me that President Trump would only consider DACA legislation that affected the 690,000 current DACA participants now, and would not entertain continuing the program for new applicants. “The President ended DACA going forward”, the official said.
Trump’s top campaign promise was to build the wall. Some took that literally, others have regarded it as a symbol of resolve to more broadly enforce our laws and enhance our national sovereignty.
While most of us acknowledge that the wall is just one, albeit a vital, component of an exhaustive list of needed reforms, there’s no turning back now. The wall has to be built because it has become the durable and symbolic centerpiece of America’s determination to enforce our laws and maintain control of our borders.
If it gets built, all other reforms are likely; without it, Trump faces major agenda defeat and national resolve will diminish.
The Day the Tiger Got Loose
On September 13, 2017 Trump learned a valuable lesson: his base will turn on him over amnesty for illegal immigrants, regardless of the circumstances.
Remember his comment on the campaign that if he shot somebody in cold blood on Park Avenue his base would still be with him?
The President found out yesterday that is not the case when he cavalierly floated DACA amnesty with no wall to the media and Chuck Schumer.
It was met with immediate fire and fury from his base.
Conservative talk radio caller telephones like mine lit up like a pinball machine in a penny arcade all over the country. The Trump base was infuriated. They showed it.
Trump found out in no uncertain terms that if he breaks his promise on the wall – and plays the globalist slave labor game with amnesty deals to appease the cheap labor and cheap votes D.C. uni-Party swamp crowd — all hell will break loose among his most ardent supporters.
Trump supporters know their establishment Republican representatives in Washington have lied to them over 30 years. Their patience has run out. The game has changed.
The President learned if he caves in on amnesty for illegals and negotiates away the wall its political suicide. He’ll lose the House in 2018; he’s out in 2020.
It’s like George Bush’s 1988 pledge: “read my lips, no new taxes”. You can’t break the pledge. If you do, you lose.
The Movement Transcends Its Leader
For two years I have said on national television and on my radio program the America first Trump doctrine is a movement. It cannot be contained.
The movement is now transcending its leader.
Trump set a tiger is loose in the streets. Trump either rides the tiger – or it will eat him.
If you want proof of this, circle Sept. 26th on your calendar.
That’s the day Alabama voters will soundly reject President Trump’s U.S. senate swamp candidate Luther Strange and elect Roy Moore in a landslide.
The movement is moving past its current leader.
Trump found out yesterday his base – which he ignited — cannot be managed.
It’s now managing him.
