1. Don't be fooled. Mitch McConnell [@SenateMajLdr ] canceling the August Recess has *nothing* to do with supporting President Trump.…
2. Mitch McConnell is simply trying, yet again, to avoid allowing President @realDonaldTrump from making "recess appointments".
3. .... and simultaneously retaining leverage against the Office of the President for McConnell's own agenda.
4. Remember, last year Senator McConnell [@SenateMajLdr ] used a parliamentary maneuver to block President Trump from making recess appointments.…
5. Remember x 2, it takes every single senator agreeing to the pro-forma session to block the President from making recess appointments. Last year every single Republican Senator agreed to block President Trump. (Who they oppose).
6. However, this year, with the additional sunlight and public scrutiny upon the DC UniParty, it would have been too politically transparent if McConnell use the same process to block President Trump again.
7. An increasingly awake electorate is a political risk for McConnell. He simply couldn't block POTUS Trump again. People would have asked uncomfortable questions. McConnell simply needed to change tactics.
8. Simultaneous to this, @SenateMajLdr is getting swamped with phone calls from his Wall Street lobbyist financiers demanding he block President Trump's "America First" initiative on Trade. Specifically NAFTA and China.
9. The U.S. @USChamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue, Wall Street, Koch Brothers, and the "Big Club" writ large are fuming. There are trillions at stake, and President Trump is removing their influence in trade constructs.
10. A massive political WAR to end all WARS is looming on the horizon. All the Wall Street interests who oppose the @POTUS, and have purchased influence, are positioning all resources for the big trade confrontation.

Few are paying attention to it.
11. Billions have been spent by Wall Street to purchase U.S. Trade Policy.
12. The Professional GOPe and DEMe are in alignment. Hence the UniParty system of Democrat and Republicans positioning to protect their indulgences is currently underway.
13. However, for the Republican side of the UniParty they must be stealthy in their self-interested attacks against the President. The two-party ruse must be maintained. They must keep the deceptive economic fight against Trump from too much sunlight.
14. The financial interests of the professional political class are directly tied to their ability to influence U.S. trade policy. Within this process their individual affluence is created by their position as wealth brokers from the U.S. economy to the multinational corps.
15. This is the accurate backdrop to understand the motives of @SenateMajLdr positioning for leverage in the economic confrontation against @realDonaldTrump . Years spent constructing the global trade system. There are billion$ of graft, kickbacks & corruption involved.
16. Cancellation of the August senate recess has *NOTHING* to do with supporting President @realDonaldTrump ; and everything to do with @SenateMajLdr positioning for maximum influence and affluence retention. There are billions at stake.
17. /END
