Fuck it, shut everything down so we can get this party started. Need something to wake these mfr's up. Stolen elections have major consequences.

I seem to recall India and China skirmishing a few times in the past year, and India winning each time.

We have invaded so many countries we just think it's normal that others would.

Dunno why you're getting downvoted. This is probably the reasoning that at least some of the idiots who suck off the MSM teets think.

"Well, we did it to Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc. It's only fair..."

Anywhere you go in the world now you see universal pricing.

That would be because most of the world's goods are coming from China. It is a monopoly without anti-trust laws.

It's a giant slave plantation and it's evil that we even started doing business with them.

We have let them take over our economy.

Around the world they are doing "infrastructure" in return for mineral rights. They have their fingers in virtually every part of Africa and much of Europe.

When China bought Smithfield in the US, the CEO acknowledged that China was looking to expand their food supply. What are our politicians doing besides enriching themselves? They certainly are not looking after the interests of the US

One thing communists are not good at is understanding that someone needs to produce.

It's almost like President Trump was right about Made in America and the dangers of dependence on a global supply chain.

Uniparty made a lot of conservative boomers think it was a good idea to move everything to China because of the invisible hand of the holy market gods.

And if you said it was a bad idea that called you a communist.

I don’t recall any of us plebs be given a choice in the matter? I also don’t remember the Repuclicunt party doing a damn thing to stop it no matter how much we demanded. Kind of like what’s going on now…

This is what I keep telling you, the environmental nuts have made it impossible to make anything in America. Here is yet another example. If we had Trump in maybe he could write an EO allowing new smelters to be built as a national emergency.

And the environmentalists are being funded by the Chinese Communists to eliminate the competition. Environmental justice is part of this facade.

We have companies with massive stores of aluminum in warehouses in Michigan and elsewhere. The companies were holding it in empty warehouses to drive up prices or wait until it went up, one or the other. I read about this like a decade ago.

Don’t forget that if there was magnesium smelting factories in American, their union would require $45/hr, massive benefits and a full pension at 55. That’s part of the problem.

Don’t shut it down. Use the leverage of the US having plenty LNG and China needing it. Oh you need our fuels? Back the F off Taiwan ASAP.

Dont worry, the current unelected administration will hand it over for free and throw in some extra resources.

This tracks with ALCOA's stock losing 10% last week.

So, is China doing this on purpose? I would find it hard to believe they actually have an energy shortage. Anyone know why they would be having energy problems when they could just force their slaves to make more energy plants?

Why the fuck can't we just make it here? And what about all those "recycled" cans?

It's not impossible to build a smelter in the US. The EPA wouldn't allow it. Because 'muh emissions'

Well it looks like the EU is fucked, but luckily we appear to be close to a solution, that started back in 2018.
