Tariffs, trade and tyrants: Ron Hart

Democrats agree with Trump that tariffs on China are a good idea. It always concerns me when the political classes in D.C. are in full agreement; the last time that happened, they voted for the Iraq War. Retaliatory tariffs will hurt the U.S. in the near term and China in the longer term. If ever Trump is going to take on the Chinese, who have cheated on trade for years, it is now. With low inflation, a good economy and the stock markets near highs, we are in the best position to endure a trade ...

Xi Jinping may have showed how he plans to cripple US tech and defense giants in the trade war with a visit to a Chinese magnet factory

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited a rare earth magnet factory in eastern China on Monday. He was accompanied by Vice Premier Liu He, China's top economics adviser who has been leading trade negotiations with the US.

China axed its live broadcast of the 'Game of Thrones' finale, reportedly because of the US-China trade war, and fans were furious (KYG8757216)

"Game of Thrones" fans in China were left reeling after Tencent Video, the country's official streamer of HBO content, axed its simulcast of the show's series finale.

But an HBO spokesman told The Wall Street Journal that it was due to tensions brought on by the US-China trade war.

Dream of leaving California? Just do it.

You know how those lily-livered anti-Trumpers were forever saying, pre-putsch, they were going to move to New Zealand or Finland or some other God-forsaken un-despotted backwater if he got the White House? Oh, sure, you say — you mean like you, buddy? Wrong man. I wrote in this space that I would move to Mexico. Better surfing. Better food. Excellent culture. Yeah, I didn’t. Need a job; baby needs new shoes. Working on it. Have to figure out the almost equally nutty politics of AMLO first. So re...

Trump’s Huawei Threat Is the Nuclear Option to Halt China’s Rise

The White House on Wednesday initiated a two-pronged assault on China: barring companies deemed a national security threat from selling to the U.S., and threatening to blacklist Huawei Technologies Co. from buying essential components. If it follows through, the move could cripple China’s largest technology company, depress the business of American chip giants from Qualcomm Inc. to Micron Technology Inc., and potentially disrupt the rollout of critical 5G wireless networks around the world. “T...

Shutting down a platform that has endless information makes sense if the mere presence of Winnie the Pooh was too much for President Xi Jinping and his crew to handle.
