President Trump has threatened to increase tariff rates against China from 10 percent to a whopping 25 percent, a tough move that is ruffling the feathers of the Chinese government, making them bristle at the mere suggestion of such a measure being taken.

In fact, China’s foreign ministry called the threat “blackmail,” warning that any policy like this would “produce the opposite of the desired result.” Gee, aren’t those communists just the nicest bunch of folks?

In addition to the tariffs currently in place, the Trump administration has proposed an additional 10 percent tariff on an additional $200 billion worth of imports from China. Now Trump administration officials are reportedly considering increasing those tariffs to 25 percent. The tariffs target a range of Chinese imports like dog food, furniture, car tires, beauty products, and food products, in addition to steel and aluminum.

President Donald Trump said that if China is not willing to reach an acceptable trade deal, he is prepared to slap tariffs on all Chinese imports to the U.S., which amounted to $505.5 billion last year alone.

In a news briefing, Geng Shuang, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said

U.S. pressure and blackmail won’t have an effect. If the United States takes further escalatory steps, China will inevitably take countermeasures and we will resolutely protect our legitimate rights.

Geng also said that China has “always upheld using dialogue and consultations to handle trade frictions,” but that “unilateral threats and pressure will only produce the opposite of the desired result.”

It’s only a matter of time before the radical left in the mainstream media grab hold of this situation and immediately fall into hysterics and start claiming that some sort of world war is going to break out because Trump dares to actually do his job and stand firm and tough on foreign policy.

It’s enough to produce an infinite number of eye rolls, all the dramatics, but alas, the left has never been about the substance of their ideology, opting for emotionalism instead.

At the end of the day, you want a man like Trump in the Oval Office, putting pressure on other, more unruly nations around the world, letting them know America isn’t going to take such things lying down.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
