When the White House “Office of American Innovation” and “American Technology Council” put together a summit last week to promote an America First economic policy, they committed a fumble. They gave a German software management company a forum to pitch the White House for new business. For an Administration that has pushed back against the idea of “Globalism,” this one company was allowed to push a globalist agenda by being allowed to pitch the outsourcing government functions to a German company.
The German Company is SAP, Systeme Anwendungen und Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung, and that company competes directly with the products of American companies Oracle and Microsoft. SAP was an odd choice, because the German company Deutsche Telecom was not invited to pitch their internet services. Other Russian, Chinese and European companies were not invited to pitch President Trump for business. Why SAP?
The CEO of SAP, Bill McDermott, not only attended but was an active participant in the process. While many giants of American technology like Apple, Microsoft, Google and Oracle were invited and participated, the inclusion of McDermott as an active participant was not well received. American companies are a better fit for federal government contracts that involve national security and government wide software, and hardware, solutions.
One purpose of the summit was to solicit help in modernizing government. The president was quoted as calling for a “sweeping transformation” in technology for the whole federal government. It is funny that President Trump has not proven to be the protectionist that the media predicted – the European Union are the proven protectionist block of nations.
What happened to America first? We will not, “make America Great Again” with the same old buddy system and the huge trade imbalance that has put America in next to last. We must square our trade imbalance and start putting our American industry first, and that means looking at our trade – both imports and exports.
Economics 101 folks, means we bring in from the EU and other nations what they take from our exports. It is a balance sheet formula. We need to regain our place in this Economic monopoly board and set the stage for U.S. dominance economically. If Trump is truly concerned about our economic standing, it is time to put up or shut up.
Just look at the recent fine imposed by the EU on Google. CNN Money reported this week, “European Union regulators slapped Google with a record €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) antitrust fine on Tuesday, the latest broadside fired at big American tech companies doing business in the region.” This is protectionism.
The EU claimed that Google was denying choice because they were using their search engine to steer people to their own shopping platform. The real reason they are hammering Google is because Google is the most successful search engine in human history – and an American company. The allegation is that Google did not allow other companies “a chance to compete” when they don’t understand the Google is a private company that does not have to actively promote competitors. Is the EU aware that there are other search engines competing with Google?
Yet this incident proves the point that the EU is just beginning to engage in protectionism in the name of “anti-trust” law. The fact is that the EU exists to protect and shelter European companies at the expense of the American business world. Is this fair trade? I think not, I think our very existence as a super power is being threatened by this EU buddy system.
And that brings us back to the American summit held last week to promote American technology where the White House allowed a German company to pitch the government for business. Reciprocity is a very important idea in trade. We treat them like they treat us. If President Trump treated SAP like the EU has treated Google this past week, he would have handed the German company a billion dollar fine for trying to compete for American business.
Biden White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Slavery Reparations Without Congressional Approval
Enshrining the new leftist caste system.
The Biden White House has announced that they will “start acting now” on reparations for slavery regardless of what goes on in Congress.
“We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” Senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond said during a recent interview with Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” he added.
Richmond believes that House Resolution 40, a measure introduced in the legislature to study reparations, will eventually pass, but he maintains that the administration will move on the issue regardless of what the facts or logic of the matter dictate.
“We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country,” Richmond said.
Richmond is building on the case made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has affirmed the Biden administration’s support of the reparations study.
“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” Psaki said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
Biden is already taking measures to give additional handouts to certain minority constituents. He took executive action shortly after being installed as president that compelled the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality.”
Richmond confirmed that the Biden administration will be conferring additional government-granted privileges to minorities, particularly when it comes to educational opportunity.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way. Those are doable,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s embrace of Black Lives Matter radicalism as part of his devil’s bargain to seize power:
The terrorist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) uses the same digital fundraising platform, ActBlue, that is used by former vice president Joe Biden and many prominent political figures in the Democrat Party, the National Pulse has discovered.
“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” the donation tab on the BLM official website states, which is rerouted to ActBlue.
The donation page notes that “ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving” and any “contribution is made from my own funds or the funds of an authorizing corporation or other entity, and the funds are not being provided by any other person or entity.”
Biden’s presidential campaign has received a stunning $119,253,857 from the ActBlue platform, which sustains his presidential ambitions as well as the BLM terror movement.
Biden is living up to his mandate to enact an aggressive and corrosive form of identity politics. As the demographic collapse of the historical American nation continues, a new anti-white caste system of sorts will continue to take shape.
