SHOCK POLL: 75% of American Businesses Say Tariffs Hurting Business

What sordid lies out of the fake news financial media. We have already been told that debilitating tariffs on the world’s fastest growing major economy is GOOD for America — because it brings jobs back and also makes steel plants sprout out from the ground — and it makes coal miners live longer with the black lung.

According to the CNBC degenerates’ poll, nearly three quarters of all businesses said a trade war with China, arguably their biggest growth market, is having a negative impact on their business. Well, if that were true, the stock market wouldn’t be going up — now would it?

Nearly three-fourths, or 74.9%, of almost 250 respondents to a survey held from May 16 to May 20 said the increases in U.S. and Chinese tariffs are having a negative impact on their business, according to a report released Wednesday by AmCham Shanghai and AmCham China in Beijing.

About one in five said they have experienced increased inspections and slower customs clearance.

The greatest impact of the combined tariffs is decreased demand for products, followed by increased manufacturing costs, according to the joint AmCham survey.

Obviously, this is the handy work of Hillary Clinton and her bandits.

In other news, it appears the rascals inside Syria are at it again — gassing their own people for no reason at all. This is equal to American police officers indiscriminately pulling over people on the road and beating them, or even shooting them with their pistols. If that would ever happen, I’m sure we’d attack ourselves for such grave crimes against humanity.

“Unfortunately, we continue to see signs that the Assad regime may be renewing its use of chemical weapons, including an alleged chlorine attack in northwest Syria on the morning of May 19,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

Ortagus said the alleged attack was part of a violent campaign by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces violating a ceasefire that has protected several million civilians in the greater Idlib area.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has twice bombed Syria over Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

Now with Iran on the butcher’s block readying to be sliced and diced, I’m sure the sages at the War Department have a package deal in mind to tie up both Syria and Iran at once. After it’s all said and done, we’d free the entire Middle East from dictators and strong men who kill women and children for sport. As a wonderful democracy, we should never sit by idly watching madmen mustard gas babies in their cribs. How would you like it if someone came to your housing tenement and mustard gassed your entire floor? I bet you’d want the Housing Police to shoot those people, or at a minimum disable their cameras to beat the assailants into a permanent paralysis.

Futures were lower before the specter of more war was announced. Since then, futures turned brighter and American spirits rose like a waft of sweetly burned tobacco emanating throughout the balmy night skies.

    MSM gets a boner over our response to these false flags.

    On a past such event, recall CNN host Fareed Zakaria saying as he felt a tingle in his groin, “I think Donald Trump became president of the United States last night, I think this was actually a big moment.”

    Trump ran on getting us out or Syria. He apparently can’t do it. So who’s in charge??????????????????????????

      ” The US war machine is like a belligerent drunk at a pub with a broken bottle in his hand, menacing customer after customer while everyone silently prays he has a few more drinks and passes out on the floor. From Iran to Venezuela to Syria and more, the agenda to bully all the world’s nations into allowing themselves to be absorbed into the blob of the US-centralized empire is causing conflict after conflict all around the globe, with devastating consequences for the civilians caught in the crossfire.”

    I have had three of those steel plants spring up in my back yard just this week. A damned nuisance. Had to have the gardener dig them up and re-mow the lawn.

    Why doesn’t CNBC ask about that? I will tell you why. Because a certain uber-liberal Hungarian-American billionaire is suppressing the story by false flag polls about tariffs affecting business. But we know what is really going on.

    At least the tariffs are helping reduce black lung disease for the coal miners, so there is that.

    Good day.
