News Roundup! Money Talks & BS Walks, Black Approval For PDJT Continues To Rise, Tariffs On $112 Billion Dollars Of Chinese Imports Goes Into Effect, Gas Prices Lower By 25% Compared To Last Year, Wall Update, Latest Update On Hurricane Dorian…..

One of my sayings is that Money talks and BS walks when it comes to Presidential Elections.

After spending the morning and afternoon preparing my home for Hurricane Dorian, I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Michigan versus Middle Tennessee State football game. I sat next to a gentleman named James. He and I spoke throughout the game.

He is 51 years of age and getting ready to retire from JEA (Jacksonville Electric Authority) in 4 years. He is a Black American. After about two hours of talking about life, family and our jobs, he said that he loves PDJT because of what he has meant for his 401K.

He said he voted for BHO in 2008 because he was Black. He said he didn’t make that mistake in 2012 because he saw the damage he was doing to the country. He said he didn’t vote in 2016. He said that he, his wife, his mother and father can’t wait to vote for PDJT In 2020 because of what he has done for our economy. Especially the Stock Market.

I was so happy to talk with him the rest of the night. What a breath of fresh air to speak with someone that society says should hate PDJT. There are many more James’ out there. They understand that PDJT is a gift to them and their families.

At the stroke of midnight, the 15% tariffs on an $112 billion dollars worth of Chinese imports went into effect.

From the article linked above:

  • A 15% tariff on a total of $112 billion of Chinese goods are set to go into effect at midnight ET.

Tariffs on $112 billion of Chinese goods are set to go into effect at midnight ET. While some duties have been delayed and some items have been removed from the original list of $300 billion Chinese imports, many everyday grocery items and household staples will still be targeted beginning Sunday, according to an official list that spans 122 pages.

Chinese retaliatory tariffs ranging from 5% to 10% on a portion of $75 billion U.S. goods also are scheduled to go into effect Sunday.

GUESS WHO BLINKED?

Trump has threatened higher punitive duties after this round of tit-for-tat tariffs, but China softened its stance this week, saying it’s willing to resolve the trade war with a “calm attitude” and indicating it won’t retaliate immediately.

From the article linked above:

  • Today’s average gas price of just over $2.58 per gallon is 25 cents cheaper than during the Labor Day weekend last year, according to AAA.
  • Average prices by state range from a low of $2.20 a gallon in Louisiana and Mississippi to almost $3.66 in Hawaii.
  • More people will likely head out on road trips, and have more pocket money to spend on food and fun, thanks to lower gas prices across most of the U.S.

If you’re heading out on an end-of-summer road trip this Labor Day, you might find yourself spending less on fuel and more on food and fun.

That’s thanks to what may be the lowest average nationwide gasoline rates for this holiday weekend in three years, according to AAA.

That means people will have more money in their pockets and they’ll be more likely to hit the road, said AAA spokesperson Jeanette Casselano. “When gas prices are cheaper, we tend to see more people traveling.”

That’s in keeping with the findings of a consumer survey AAA did earlier in the year. Asked in February what they’d do if gas prices stayed the same or lower in 2019, 33% of respondents said they would go on at least one additional summer road trip and 27% said they would increase the distance of their trip.

The Wall continues to get built as Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers, CoC etc. are completely helpless to stop it.

From the article linked above:

The acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan used his power to waive laws in order to build the border wall to dismiss 29 federal laws in the Rio Grande Valley on Friday afternoon. The waivers apply to planned border wall segments in Starr County near Rio Grande City and La Grulla as well as much of the unwalled portion of Hidalgo County, totaling approximately 17 miles.

Latest update on Hurricane Dorian.

At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 26.3 North, longitude 75.1 West. Dorian is moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h), and a slower westward motion should continue for the next day or two, followed by a gradual turn toward the northwest. On this track, the core of Dorian should be near or over portions of the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday, and move closer to the Florida east coast late Monday through Tuesday.

Data from NOAA and Air Force reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds remain near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher gusts. Dorian is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely, but Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km). (read more)
