Trump exposes the G-7 summit as a total fraud
Ed. Is it any wonder the scam artists, political hacks, media liberals and power brokers fear and despise Donald Trump? He is the adult in the room!
The photo below, featuring Germany's Angela Merkel leaning across the table peering at President Trump is reminiscent of a teenager trying to explain to her father how she wrecked the car. By his very presence, Donald Trump makes the rest of the room appear small!
Even before then, Mr. Trump had left himself the outlier in the annual
session. By departing before the end, he skipped sessions about climate change,
oceans and clean energy — ceding not only America’s leadership on those topics,
but also its very seat at the table.
Lost in this
breathless "transcription" of events is the question of whether
America should lead on so-called "issues" such as climate change,
oceans, and supposedly "clean" energy.
A tardy Donald Trump created a distraction Saturday when he showed up
late for a G-7 meeting on women’s empowerment.
The U.S. president arrived several minutes after the start of the
breakfast meeting between G7 leaders and the gender equality advisory council
that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau created for this year’s summit in the
Charlevoix region of Quebec.
Trump missed Trudeau’s introductory statement at the meeting and
entered the room while council co-chair Isabelle Hudon, who is Canada’s
ambassador to France, was speaking.
The rapid-fire clicks of cameras intensified as Trump made his way into
the room — to the point that the noise of all the cameras almost drowned out
Trump was late and
rude at the so-called "women's empowerment meeting," which I'm sure
has never "empowered" a single woman. I sincerely hope Trump's
lateness was intentional.
Trump and Germany's Merkel
Let's step back and
look at the larger picture. Most people have heard of the G-7, but very few
people know what it's actually all about. People are vaguely aware that the G-7
is a group of industrialized nations who get together every year, but few
people know what actually goes on.
You can see what actually goes on here. Some of the highlights
of the agenda:
1) "Economic growth that works for everyone." What an odd thing to aspire to! In
capitalism, economic growth doesn't work for everyone--namely, it doesn't work
for those who don't produce things that people want to buy, it doesn't work for
people who are lazy, or don't work hard, and so on. Growth works
disproportionately for those who efficiently produce what people want, and
those who have useful job skills. Growth that works "for everyone"
sounds like liberal code for redistribution schemes.
2) "Gender equality and women's empowerment." We have had gender equality for decades in
the G-7. The place where it doesn't exist is in Muslim countries. When Trump
showed up late for that meeting, do you think he was interrupting a discussion
about women's rights in Saudi Arabia?
3) "Climate change and clean energy." The climate changes all the time. We
observe it, but don't cause it. These are code words for more taxes,
redistribution, and subsidies for cutting-edge Don Quixote-style technology.
4) "Oceans" (2 sessions!). The oceans are fine. I just checked, they're still
there, and still quite wet. But what about checking out what's happening on
land masses, or better yet, what's happening to people who live on them?
You would expect a
meeting of the leaders of the most important countries to be concerned about
fighting terrorism, reducing taxes and regulations, and reducing trading
barriers. That last issue was the one that President Trump focused on, to the
dismay of the other attendees who wanted their usual painless photo op where
they could virtue signal about women or the environment.
But to their surprise
President Trump focused on the important things, reducing global trade
barriers, even suggesting the total elimination of all tariffs in all G-7
countries. This would greatly spur economic growth, if agreed to.
But don't expect the
media to focus on that. Rather than honestly reporting that Trump focused on
our top international economic priority, access to foreign markets, they will
portray Trump as a boor and an unenlightened unenvironmentalist. For me, the defining
photo was the one the liberal media is peddling of Angela Merkel staring
Trump down while Trump, with John Bolton at his side, looks impassive, like
Gandalf on the bridge of Khazad-Dum when he told the Balrog, "You shall
