Wow! The header suggests that @zacharykarabell  was going to assign #China  some of the blame for #Trump 's #tradewar . Instead, he claims that Americans of all political stripes recklessly set the stage years before! #trade  #SMH 

Hot on the heels of the failure of #centralbank  #easymoney , the calls for #helicopter-ing  are beginning. This one assumes that national govts will agree to stop at 3% of #GDP  even if it's not working: #whupwhup  #economy  #slowdown 

Earth to #Dayton  Mayor@nanwhaley : #Trump  won #Ohio  lgly b/c #Obama  tanked on #China  & #trade  overall, further harming its #economy . If the #Dems ' prez hopefuls don't get much more #woke  on China (ignored in last nite's debate), #POTUS  will repeat:

If the Sept US advance core #retail  sales m/m dip (0.21%) holds, it'll be the first such drop since Feb's 0.89%. Y/y growth, tho, would still be accelerating (from 2.20% to 4.74%): ? ? #economy  #recession  #slowdown  #consumers 

Yet more evidence - from central #Europe  - that v/tight national labor markets (which are helped by #immigration  curbs, of course) spur big #wages  hikes. P.S. to #progressive  #OpenBorders  types - helps w #minimumwage , too: … #workers  #immigrants  #economy 

Kinda buried in this typically negative #MSM  piece on anything #Trump  does: his statement that "we have a lot in store if [new #sanctions  on #Turkey ] don’t have an impact": Withdrawal#Syria  #SyriaWithdrawal  #Kurds  #Erdogan 

Thanks to #NHL  commish Gary Bettman for telling @PowerLunch  that, as #China  keeps bullying the #NBA  and other foreign #businesses , pro #hockey  wants to #FollowtheMoney  to the PRC, too. #SMH  #democracy  #humanrights  #HongKongProtests 

The results were unaudited - at least by anyone trustworthy. Moreover, even these #s  were "driven by a surge in shipments of #smartphonesmartphones  launched befo #blacklistinge  a trade by the United States....": & #Huawei  #China  #tech  #5G

Reportedly, "At least 82 candidates and office holders have been killed since the #Mexico ] electoral season kicked off in September....": ? #NAFTA  #failedstate 

Will someone tell #HillaryClinton  that the #NATO  #allies ' contribution to the post #September11  #Afghanistan  war was - & is bupkis?

Only 1 brief mention in this #WaPo  piece that any of these #illegalaliens  have already received final removal orders. In fact, these number 1 million: & #immigration  #mediabias  #deportation  #bordercrisis 

Just voted in my municipal #Maryland ) #elections . No one checked any ID. I could have been anyone. #voterfraud 

#Immigrants ' rights" group rejects #Maryland  #taxpayer-funded  grant to provide legal services for immigrants facing #deportation  b/c bar on aiding those w/major criminal convictions wd've eliminated most recipients: #crime  #immigration 

As reported here, US localities being pressed by #illegalimmigrants  to pay (more of) their legal fees: #immigration
