Muslims see every war as a religious war 

China is trying to prevent that from happening, they want everyone to worship the State just as Socialist Democrats are attempting to accomplish in the future here.  Many just don't see it including the Muslime Congresswomen.

I think their forward thinking is sort of misguided, while those cities will have inhabitants one day, you have to have people living there to maintain them otherwise they will rot and deteriorate.  Just go through many Ghost Towns of America, and you'll see the decay and them being reclaimed by the earth.

I don’t know, Dave... With the number of Chinese people being born every year, those places could fill up before you know it!😳😜

(I think) I understand why they’re building, but not what they’re building.  But what I really don’t understand is how they can afford to build all those ghost cities.  It beats my four aces.

They get a trillion dollars in interest from the U.S. alone.  They own most of our debt.

Yep, at least they're preparing for it.

...of China. Would that include Ivanka and her business interests? Kushner done with solo meetings with the Chinese government and investments with them?

Your post was one sided and biased.  When you correct it to include the democrat front runner and his son then maybe i will entertain the idea...

So, cheaper at the pump, but less profit for oil companies?

Oil dragged into U.S.-China trade war, prices slump

NEW YORK (Reuters) - China threatened to impose tariffs on U.S. crude oil for the first time in the escalating bilateral trade war, sending prices to two-week lows on Friday as that compounded worries about a slowdown in global oil demand.

China said crude would be among the U.S. products hit by tariffs of 5% as of Sept. 1. U.S. President Donald Trump said he would offer a response later on Friday.

A trade spat between the world's two largest economies has dragged on for over a year and roiled financial markets. Though Chinese and U.S. trade negotiators held discussions as recently as this week, neither side appears ready to make a significant compromise and there have been no signs of a near-term truce.

China, one of the world's biggest crude importers, has sharply lowered U.S. shipments from a record high hit last year. With the latest tariffs, purchases are likely to grind to a complete halt, traders and analysts said.

A shale boom has helped the United States become the world's largest oil producer, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Russia, and exports have surged to a record above 3 million barrels per day (bpd) after a ban was lifted in late 2015.

"The tit for tat trade war now has the oil market officially caught in the crossfire, this time with China striking the heart of Trump's traditional base of support of U.S. oil producers," said Michael Tran, director of energy strategy at RBC Capital Markets in New York.

"With China being the world's foremost crude import growth region, U.S. producers need China, not the other way around," he said. "The U.S. will have to find alternative buyers for their crude, which will be a challenge given the weakening global demand backdrop."

U.S. shipments to China have made up about 5% of total U.S. crude exports on average so far this year, according to data from the Department of Energy.

U.S. crude futures slumped as much as 3.5% to $53.40 a barrel on Friday, the lowest since Aug. 9. The rising trade war is likely to weigh on U.S. crude more than international benchmark Brent, market sources said.

Are we supposed to accept the status quo and keep getting bent over the table on trade deals? Honest question. Isn’t it time to take a stand with these countries?

OH, not showing pity for 'Big Oil' but know plenty of people who work in O and G that could be impacted by a hard drop in prices. I live with working people, not people who own the companies.

China will cave. We are more important to them than they are to us. Worst case scenario manufacturing returns to United States.

Hey, as long as gas prices go down, I am happy, takes less money to fill up the tank, to mow the pastures, and leaves a little bit for the beer frig. But this morning I did hear on the 6 am news that it looks like we have a new trade deal with Japan and China wants to sit down a talk. But those 30 second clips can only tell you so much.

And, here I thought it was directly relevant, since it is his FAMILY. Where was the bias? 'Conservatives' HAVE to play tit-for-tat, or they take their ball and go home, huh? 

Personally i want javanka to go away but I understand his wanting them to be around.  When surrounded by a pit of vipers i imagine it gives him comfort to have family close by.  Having said that I'm fully aware that many of the vipers surrounding Trump he himself put there,  so that's on him.      As far as the lefty narrative that Trump is using the office to enrich himself and his family well that's just plain nonsense.

There you have it.  An honest assessment.    See?  It's not hard to be honest.

Now,  your turn.  Tell me about creepy joe,  his son,  and their chinese connection....

Lmbo, typical example of the lack of real arguing points by the Left.  Gas prices drop - Durn Trump.  Gas prices go up - durn Trump.  I love this thread.  To quote Gen. George Patton, “God help me, I do love it so.”
