(Drudge) USA no longer world's most competitive economy… in the world, according to annual rankings compiled by the Switzerland-based business school IMD. (Fox Business) For the first time in nine years, Singapore replaced the U.S. as the world’s most competitive economy. The U.S. dropped down to third on the list, thanks to higher fuel prices, weaker high-tech exports, fluctuations in the value of the dollar and the fading impact of President Trump’s massive tax overhaul. Hong Kong, meanwhile, remained in second place. United States was 3rd! China was ranked fourteenth.
The study takes into account statistics like unemployment (Huh?!), GDP and government spending on health and education, as well as issues like social cohesion, corruption and globalization.
Here are the 20 most “competitive” countries: 1. Singapore 2. Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region) 3. United States 4. Switzerland 5. United Arab Emirates 6. Netherlands 7. Ireland 8. Denmark 9. Sweden 10. Qatar 11. Norway 12. Luxembourg 13. Canada 14. China 15. Finland 16. Taiwan, China 17. Germany 18. Australia 19. Austria 20. Iceland
(Drudge) TRUMP SLAPS TARIFFS ON MEXICO as PRESSURE TO STOP ILLEGALS NICE!! (AP) In a surprise announcement that could derail a major trade deal, President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is slapping a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports, effective June 10, to pressure the country to do more to crack down on the surge of Central American migrants trying to cross the U.S. border. He said the percentage will gradually increase — up to 25% — “until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied.” He’s risking the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement he’s been working on, and possibly straining relations when US and Mexican economies are “deeply intertwined.” WORTH IT! Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador responded in a public letter late Thursday, telling Trump that “social problems are not solved with duties or coercive measures” and alluded to the United States’ history as a nation of immigrants. “The Statue of Liberty is not an empty symbol,” he wrote. SHUT UP! (Reuters) He even said “America First is a fallacy,” and suggested justice and universal brotherhood are more important than borders. LYIN’! He also said he was dispatching his foreign relations secretary to Washington on Friday to try to negotiate a solution. Uh-huh! …
(Drudge) Top sheriff warns: Trump's done if immigration isn't slashed… (Wash. Examiner) “This last election [meaning 2016] was a mandate,” said Frederick County, Md., Sheriff Chuck Jenkins. “If he doesn’t accomplish something, he’s done. His whole campaign was 75% was based on that.” He said if Trump loses to any of the Democrats, “It will undo everything that we’ve managed to accomplish in the past couple of years which is not a hell of a lot but it will just undo it all,” said Jenkins, who’s dubbed “the next Joe Arpaio.” He said, “Washington right now is a failure. The president gets it. He understands us. But Congress is afraid to do anything because they want to push the ball down to the next election all the time and make it another election issue.”
(Drudge) Professor who correctly predicted 9 elections says Trump will win in 2020, unless… Democrats impeach! (The Hill) American University Professor Allan Lichtman, a political historian, said Democrats only have a shot at the White House if they begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, calling the decision both “constitutionally” and “politically” right in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Oh, this guy’s a loser! Sounds like a liberal! “It’s a false dichotomy to say Democrats have a choice between doing what is right and what is constitutional and what is politically right. Impeachment is also politically right,” Lichtman told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Wednesday. Lichtman has developed a system of 13 “key factors” that help determine whether the party in the White House will maintain its hold, according to CNN.

(Drudge) Merkel Attacks Trump in Harvard Speech… (BNN Bloomberg) German Chancellor Angela Merkel took aim at Donald Trump’s worldview in a speech on U.S. soil (at Harvard!), saying unilateralism risks bringing down post-World War II alliances and trade wars threaten the “foundations of our prosperity.” “More than ever, our way of thinking and actions have to be multilateral rather than unilateral,” criticizing nationalist policies. At times, Merkel drew applause from the crowd by seeming to address the U.S. leader directly, urging graduates not to act “first impulses” or to brandish “lies as truth and truth as lies.” OH LORD! Merkel, age 64, Germany’s first female chancellor, drew from her own biography as the daughter of a pastor who grew up in East Germany — now she’s bringing in “rapefugees.” Last year’s address was given by U.S. civil rights phony and U.S. representative John Lewis. Other prominent commencement speakers in recent years, from Facebook Inc. co-founder and Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerberg to “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and television host Oprah Winfrey. HARVARD is WEAK!
(Drudge) Bye-bye Bolton? (Greenwich Time & Wash. Post) Daniel W. Drezner says we know how the script usually plays out when an Administration official is on the outs with the president. First, Trump asks everyone within his orbit what he thinks of the imperiled official. Second, reports of Trump's dissatisfaction hit the press. Third, those stories often contain incidents of Trump mocking the official on the chopping block. Fourth, Trump denies everything and claims it to be fake news. Fifth, Trump fires the person.
To be fair, sometimes the script is not that rote. Staffers like Gary Cohn and Don McGahn managed to infuriate the president but depart on their own accord. The same was true of Nikki Haley. Rod Rosenstein managed to wheedle his way back into Trump's good graces. And sometimes the gap between Step Four and Step Five can be long and agonizing. John Kelly was on the outs with Trump for much of 2018 but managed to hang around until December.
NY Times says, “Mr. Trump is not fond of Mr. Bolton, according to a half-dozen advisers and associates, and he makes no secret of it in private....” Well, we’ll see!
(Drudge) Meryl STREEP says: the TERM 'TOXIC MASCULINITY' is HARMFUL TO BOYS… 'Women Can Be ****ing Toxic Too'... (Independent) The 3-time Oscar winning actress was at a Q&A for a TV show she’s on, hosted by Vanity Fair. “We hurt our boys by calling something toxic masculinity.” Streep said. “putting those two words together ... women can be pretty ****ing toxic.” “It’s toxic people. We have our good angles and we have our bad ones.” “We’re all on the boat together. We’ve got to make it work.” (Breitbart) Streep’s comments may come as a disappointment to her progressive fan base, whom she regularly plays to in her vociferous criticism of President Donald Trump and conservative leaders. However, she has also previously dodged the question of being a feminist, instead choosing to describe herself as a “humanist.”
(Drudge) FALLEN EMPIRE: With seal lifted, police release hundreds of pages of reports in Jussie Smollett case… (The Smoking Gun) Cops say: Jussie Smollett Paid For Pot, Cocaine, Ecstasy Via Venmo App. A police examination of Jussie Smollett’s text messages revealed that on “various occasions” over the past year, the actor/hoaxster requested that an associate procure him cocaine, Ecstasy, and marijuana, the payment for which was transmitted via the Venmo app.
Smollett’s alleged narcotics purchases are referred to in a police report that was among hundreds of pages of documents released today by the Chicago Police Department after his fake hate crime.
Smollett would request "weed, molly, or Whitney," — “weed is slang for cannabis, molly is slang for ecstacy, and whitney is slang for cocaine.” One time when Smollett paid $100 for Ecstasy pills in September 2018, he listed “Training” as the reason for the Venmo transfer.

(Drudge) DISNEY Threatens To Boycott Georgia But Partners With Beijing Communists? That’s politics! They’re phony. (Daily Caller) The Walt Disney Company is considering boycotting Georgia over its new abortion law, even as Disney profits from doing business in China, a notorious human rights violator that is reportedly putting Muslims in internment camps. Disney CEO Bob Iger told Reuters on Thursday the company is likely to cease filming in Georgia if the pro-life law takes effect. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard,” Iger said. “Right now we are watching it very carefully.” “If [the bill] becomes law, I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there.” Idiot actors should shut up and act. MEANWHILE… Disney opened a $5.5 billion resort in Shanghai, China, in 2016. Iger called Shanghai Disney the company’s “greatest opportunity since buying land in Florida.” (Well, it makes sense because they kill a loooooot of babies in China, especially girls.)
US Universities And Retirees Funding Tech Behind China's Surveillance State… (BuzzFeed News) Millions of dollars from US university endowments, foundations, and retirement plans have helped fund two billion-dollar Chinese facial recognition startups: SenseTime and Megvii. The Chinese government is using their technologies to surveil and profile its citizens. The Alaska Retirement Management Board, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Rockefeller Foundation all of which are “limited partners” in private equity funds that invested in SenseTime or Megvii.
Here’s some trash for you… (Drudge) MTV Unveils First 'Sexually Fluid' Reality Dating Show… This is vulgar. (Hollywood Reporter) MTV on Thursday announced the first sexually fluid cast for the upcoming eighth season of their “groundbreaking” (THEIR WORD) eighth season of their so-called hit reality series Are You the One? hosted by Terrence J. 16 singles will travel to Hawaii in hopes of finding their "perfect match" and splitting the $1 million cash prize. But, for the first time “ever” on a dating competition show in the U.S., there will be no gender limitations, as each castmember identifies as sexually fluid. It will feature Dr. Frankie, a relationship expert to help them cope with current disaster-dating trends such as ghosting, benching and stashing.
(Drudge) Kevin Spacey’s accuser must turn over texts, judge rules… (Boston Herald) Kevin Spacey’s attorneys will be able to read the text messages sent by the teenager he’s accused of groping, a judge ruled, also deeming that the swanky Nantucket bar where the incident is alleged must turn over its surveillance video. Spacey, 59, has pleaded not guilty to a single felony count of indecent assault and battery after the son of former WCVB anchor Heather Unruh accused the Oscar-winning actor of putting a hand down the then-18-year-old’s pants at an upscale bar on Nantucket in July 2016.
This is messed up, but expected, the typical book publisher PC cowardice: SIMON & SCHUSTER drops Tony Robbins… (Buzzfeed News is gloating) Simon & Schuster dropped the book after BuzzFeed News revealed the self-help guru has berated “victims” of rape and domestic abuse (probably for their benefit, my guess), and former fans and staffers have accused him of so-called sexual harassment, without evidence. Simon & Schuster will no longer publish a book coauthored by Tony Robbins and a famous financial adviser that was slated for release this July. LOSERS!
(Drudge) CUBS Player Breaks Down In Tears After Line-Drive Foul Strikes 4-Year-Old Girl… WHOA, OMG. Pressure for full-field netting… (CBS Chicago) Chicago Cubs player Albert Almora Jr. hit a hard line-drive foul into the stands at Wednesday’s game against the Houston Astros, striking a child. Almora Jr. was visibly distraught. “As soon as I hit it, the first person I locked eyes on was her,” he said after the game. “I had to keep my composure during that at-bat, but when that half-inning was over, I just couldn’t hold it anymore.”

Jesse talks more after Abralam’s call about overcoming the fallen state, returning to your fathers.
Dean from New Mexico asks Jesse’s view on child support. If we didn’t have child support and abortion, these women wouldn’t be leaving the fathers. The money doesn’t go to the kids, but to the women. If men wake up, these things would end. Dean’s coming to the 10th annual Men’s Conference!

He brings up Stacey Abrams, the black woman Democrat. He was one of the few blacks who voted for Trump.
