https://www.scmp.com/economy/china-economy/article/3028164/donald-trumps-adviser-china-michael-pillsbury-says-president

This is an interview with Michael Pillsbury which was published on September 19, but I just ran across it.

Interesting quote:

“I believe President Trump uses social media, especially on China, to convey his thinking. So I reject the idea that I or anyone else is some kind of adviser to him on China,” he said.

“His focus is revealed frequently in the tweets that I think everybody should take very seriously as presidential statements.”

Pillsbury is the one whos figured out chinas grand strategy, soelled out in the 100 year mace.

Today, while the UN is having a Climate Change summit, President Trump is having a summit on religious freedom and ignoring the hoax.

I dont know if bain had some major deal with russian concerns as with huawei, i wouldnt put it past him.

So I have to work from home today because the "Shut Down DC" climate protests are right around my office, blocking traffic and making a general nuisance of themselves.

I'd really like to see the National Guard go out there with bulldozers and just scoop these jackasses off the streets (or run them over, whichever).

And I'd like to see the organizers of this protest sued for millions of dollars in lost business and productivity by all the companies, shops and restaurants in the area affected by them.

That'd also make a nice RICO prosecution, if we had a Justice Department that actually cared about doing its damn job.

Trump is plus 6 overall in today's Raz tracking poll, and minus 3 in strong approve/disapprove. Expect all Ukraine all the time from the Dems and Oligarch Media. It's less a matter of using Ukraine to peel off persuadables than keeping the base stoked up.

Re Biden: Oligarch Media will protect Joe and Hunter. Warren may be the flavor of the month, but I don't think Oligarch Media wants to take down Biden (at least yet).

Best NFL Game: The one that I enjoyed the most was the 1967 NFL Championship Game in which the Packers beat the Cowboys 21-17 with Bart Starr's iconic QB sneak into the end zone. The Pack then won Super Bowl II over the Raiders.

Best NFL Team: At least in the 21st century, clearly Belichick's 2000-2018 Patriots (I start at 2000, Belichick's first year as football domo in Foxboro, because even taking into account that 5-11 year, the Patriots have accomplished far more than any other team in the last 19 years).

Best NFL Player: Jim Brown.

Special Award For Making Randy Moss and Odell Beckham and Josh Gordon Seem Like Quiet, Sane Wideouts: Antonio Brown.

From NY POst article on State Dinner:

“It was the most magnificent, spellbinding, magical night crafted out of the imagination of Mrs. Trump,” said Morrison afterward, admitting to being “overcome” by tears when the military orchestra played the iconic Australian song “Waltzing Matilda.”

Australian golfer Greg Norman, who had been seated next to Mrs. Trump, declared on Instagram that it was “the best event I have ever attended. EVER!”

Henry Kissinger reportedly told Trump chief of staff Mick Mulvaney it was one of the best official functions he had attended, high praise from a 96-year-old statesman whose career serving presidents began in the Nixon administration.

The federal highway program is set to expire a year from now, but lawmakers looking to fund their pet projects are eager to get started. So the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has already approved a bill that would authorize billions more in projects than the federal gas tax will bring in. The thing is though, they don’t know how to pay for it.
