Matter and anti-matter will meet next week.
That’s when President Trump goes to Davos where the globalist elites gather for the World Economic Forum.
Like Daniel, President Trump refuses to bow to the false gods of globalism. Steadfast in his belief in America First, he will preach the old time religion in the lion’s den.
A year ago, Davos feared insurgent nationalism led by President Trump would tank the global economy along with their glorious project of a World With No Borders.
But one year later, outlook for the global economy is “as good as it gets,” with growth rising and unemployment falling.
The U.S. economy is growing at rates unimaginable under the Obama crew – unemployment hit an 18-year low, unemployment claims a 45-year low, and black and Hispanic unemployment are the lowest ever recorded.
To borrow a phrase from Hillary, what happened?
Donald J. Trump happened.
He executed a 180-degree reversal of the policies pursued by his globalist predecessor, Barack Obama.
Rather than encouraging investors to sink their capital in the mire of corrupt Third World dictatorships, President Trump is unabashed about encouraging the greatest companies on earth to invest in the greatest country on earth, the United States of America.
That is the best way, he confidently and correctly predicted, for the United States to lift the poorest countries out of poverty.
Considering the positive results his policies have already produced, you might think President Trump would receive a hero’s welcome at Davos.
Don’t hold your breath.
Galileo was correct in confirming a heliocentric universe, but that did not earn him any points with the Inquisition.
Globalism is a religion, and Donald Trump is anathema.
One of President Trump’s principle sins is looking out for his nation of birth. According to the globalist faith, that is tolerated only when practiced by Third World nations.
Take India, for example. Were the U.S. to systematically promote its domestic industries to the disadvantage of all others as India does, we would be scourged as protectionist and nationalist. But India is given a free pass. In fact, it will be promoting its economic agenda at the conference next week.
A study from the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University finds that the Indian government’s “Make in India” program, ostensibly designed to promote foreign investment, is actually “India’s bait-and-switch approach to luring U.S. companies into its market only to take advantage of American workers by stealing U.S. intellectual property or severely limiting the ability of innovators to compete fairly in India.”
According to the study, “patent applicants face costly and time-consuming patent opposition hurdles, long timelines for receiving patents, and excessive reporting requirements. In the pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical sectors, India continues to lack an effective system for protecting against the unfair commercial use, as well as the unauthorized disclosure, of undisclosed test or other data generated to obtain marketing approval for such products.”
The Indian government has targeted three of America’s top industries: software, medical devices/pharmaceuticals, and information and communication technology. American companies in these industries operating in India are subject to forced technology transfer, crippling price caps or outright piracy and theft of trade secrets. The Commerce Department cites India as one of the world’s worst offenders of U.S. intellectual property rights.
President Trump’s vow to end one-way trade deals that impoverish American workers, while bolstering corrupt regimes abroad has already begun to pay dividends for the American and indeed the world economy.
When President Trump visits Davos next week, he will hold the high priests of globalism to account.
He will also deliver a message to the world’s corporate elite: The United States is open for business.
Rule of law, respect for intellectual property rights, transparency, accountability and good governance make America the best place in the world to live, work, invest and do business.
That’s a message the folks in the “Make in India” salon need to hear – and an example they need to emulate.
