唐納德 特朗普總統如果承认是世界第二,估计世界上没有人敢承认世界第一。 唐納德 特朗普總統这次更转移了目標: 以前,美国是带头大哥,一些小钱,它是看不上的,小弟們跟我走,就行。但现在,一分钱就是一分钱,雁过必须拔毛,小弟弟們不脱一层皮,就不是美国新作风。 综合媒体的报道: 1,唐納德特朗普總統已经拟定,那些有美军驻扎的国家,不仅要负担所有美军的开支,而且还要额外再交50%的“保护费”。也就是说,利用驻军,美国不仅不花钱,还可以再赚50%。 2,按照这“1+50%”计划,原来不掏钱、少掏钱给美国的国家,统统都必须掏钱:有的国家一下子大幅增加到原来的5到6倍。唐納德 特朗普總統, 讚。 3,美国首先讓韩国繳費,就在双方讨价还价快达成协议的时候,唐納德,特朗普總統越过美方谈判人员們,他直接给美國国家安全顾问博尔顿发信息,强调了一条:“我们美國要全额,加50”。 4,韩国人跟隨美國人:看到很多要钱的,没看到这么要钱的。韩国今年将先付9.235亿美元,比去年增加8.2%。但这可能是明面的,因为,唐納德 特朗普總統已宣布,我自己一通电话,就让韩国增加了5亿美元,差不多正好是50%。 5,韩国只是小试牛刀,接下来的大头,就是日本和德国。德国每年向美国补助军费10亿美元,日本则是17.1亿美元,这两个大金主們不還錢?唐納德 特朗普總統肯定不会答应。 怎么样,以前,美国向国外派兵,干的都是散财的事情,美國往往要向当地支付租借费用,甚至美國为拉拢当地民众,还得自掏腰包、搞点军民共建。 唐納德 特朗普總統打算一个仔不掏,还要从中净赚50%,把美國海外驻军都做成了一门大生意。 唐納德 川普總統果然是一个生意人总统! (二) 这边,特朗普總統很高兴,你看看,美國以前总统們都败家,只有我,美國在外国驻军了,美國还赚大钱了。 那边,一些小兄弟們聽著:这个世道真变了,带头大哥一心向钱看,我们不仅出地、让美國驻军,还要交應該交的錢。 日本和德国: 德国,多少还好一些。 以前,美国和苏联对峙,德国需要美国保护,自然不能没有美国大兵們。 现在,俄罗斯毕竟不是苏联,德国本身军力已不弱。默克尔说,欧洲以后只能靠自己了,德国和法国已经在酝酿建立一支独立的欧洲军队,德國如果真与美國闹僵?讓美国撤军? 日本不是德国,几乎可以肯定的,日本将是天字第一号繳款戶。 按照以前的计算,同样都驻扎美国大兵們,同样都是为了防范苏联,德国只承担了美国当地驻军总费用的28%,日本则掏了至少88%。 现在,唐納德 特朗普總統的起步标准就是“1+50%”。小国家哪怕掏得再多,也就多个几千万、上亿美元,唐納德 特朗普總統估计收着、也不得劲,最有标杆效应的,肯定就是日本了。 按照唐納德 特朗普總統的说法,他第一笔收費,已经讓韩国繳款5亿美元;那日本,没有个10亿美元,唐納德 特朗普總統岂能答应? 很符合 唐納德 特朗普總統的本色。 在他的自传《交易的艺术》中,唐納德 特朗普總統谈到做生意的四个阶段: 一是提出惊人的目标; 二是大肆宣传; 三是决策反复摇摆; 四是获得直观的结果。 唐納德 特朗普写道:“一个远高于预期的条件,让对手无从下手——反复无常的变化,给对手施加压力——给出次优条件,让对手急于接受了事——达到最初想要的结果。” 过去两年,唐納德 特朗普總統没少这么干。现在,唐納德 特朗普總統将这种功夫,运用到一帮小兄弟們的头上。 出来混,都是要还的。看热闹的,最终也要被人看的。更何况,在 唐納德 特朗普總統这里,搭美国便车,那是万万不可以的。再亲的小兄弟們,保护费该缴、也得缴的:这个世界,没有钱是万万不能的。 以前,美国海外驻军,都是花钱的事情;但 唐納德 特朗普總統,把它做成了美國赚钱的买卖,毛利率还不低,50%! 这个陳斯紅的世道,确实变了。 Lesson 311, March 12, 2019 Exodus 14 : 5-9 5 When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, the mind of Pharaoh and his servants was changed toward the people, and they said, “What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from serving us?”6 So he made ready his chariot and took his army with him, 7 and took six hundred chosen chariots and all the other chariots of Egypt with officers over all of them. 8 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the people of Israel while the people of Israel were going out defiantly. 9 The Egyptians pursued them, all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and his horsemen and his army, and overtook them encamped at the sea, by Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon.1600 Daily The White House • March 11, 2019 The worst number in Washington $15 trillion.

The worst number in Washington
$15 trillion. If you needed a single number to represent Washington’s decades of dysfunction before President Donald J. Trump was elected, that’s a good place to start. 

In the 20 years from 1997 to 2017—President Trump’s first in office—America’s national debt nearly quadrupled from just over $5 trillion to more than $20 trillion. Those skyrocketing deficits accompanied a Federal Government that was increasingly unaccountable to its citizens, putting favored interests ahead of U.S. taxpayers.

In 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama called the $4 trillion in debt accumulated under President George W. Bush “unpatriotic.” Once in the White House, President Obama himself then swelled the national debt by nearly $9 trillion. After losing the presidency in 2016, Democrats once again ramped up their tough talk on the deficit, this time as a means of attacking President Trump and Congressional Republicans.  

Well, good news—the 2020 budget proposed by President Trump today gives both parties a chance to show Americans where they stand on Washington’s “unpatriotic” spending addiction. With economic growth soaring above 3 percent and unemployment at its lowest in 50 years, now is the moment to lift the debt burden off of our children’s backs.  

President Trump’s budget was written with the working American citizen in mind:Taxpayers first. Recent history is clear about the source of our debt problem. The issue isn’t that Americans are taxed too little—it’s that Washington spends far too much. President Trump’s 2020 proposal reduces spending by $2.7 trillion and balances the Federal budget in 15 years.
 Promises kept. This budget prioritizes the Government’s core responsibilities to its citizens. It allocates $32.5 billion for border security and immigration enforcement, more than $80 billion to fully support medical care for veterans, and $750 billion to continue rebuilding American national defense.
 Government waste slashed. Few Americans know that every year, the Federal Government spends $68 million on international labor activities, such as promoting unions in South America. Or that Washington spends $35,000 per student—more than tuition at many top universities—to send tens of thousands of young people to “Jobs Corps” centers with an abysmal safety and security record. This type of underreported, unchecked waste and abuse must end.
 Republicans and Democrats both call out the national debt when the other party is in power—no surprise there. The difference today is that only one party, led by President Trump, is actually trying to cut spending once in office.

Pay close attention to whether Democrats suddenly go silent about our national debt.
