2019 Is The Year Farmers Will Feel The Pain From Trump's Trade Wars - Forbes

Chuck Jones

To understand the potential financial impact to American farmers it is important to know that corn and soybeans are the largest monetary crops in the U.S. per NASS, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. In 2017 the value of corn was $48.5 billion, with soybeans a close second at $41 billion. The next largest crop was hay, a distant third at $16.2 billion. For comparison, the value of apples grown in the U.S. was $4 billion and oranges was $2 billion.

From John Newton, Chief Economist for the American Farm Bureau, “The USDA’s prospective plantings survey results revealed farmers are planning to plant 92.8 million acres of corn and 84.6 million acres of soybeans. For corn, USDA’s acreage estimate was above prior-year levels, above USDA’s February projections and above the average trade estimate. For soybeans, USDA’s estimate was below prior-year levels, below USDA’s February forecast and below the average trade estimate.”

He added, “Generally corn and soybeans are in rotation. Soybeans have a lower cost of production but also have lower yields. But the recent rainfall and flooding could delay or reduce corn plantings for some in 2019 — leading to more soybean acres than initially projected.”

Holder Knocks Barr For Burying Mueller Report, Just 'Beginning' The Beat With Ari Melber MSNBC

Focus needs to move away from Mueller toward something more tangible like Cohen's check

to Stormy Daniels. The Republican's may actually want us to stay on Mueller and string us along on something that will never produce for us when we have very clear cut scandals that regular folks can wrap their heads around already in the open. I am not saying we give up on seeing the full Mueller report but until we know there is something really juicy there, we have nothing the public can wrap their heads around and it should be placed in the background.

There are so many very tangible Trump scandals that regular people will immediately get like family separations for instance. His trade policy is a disaster!

If once dems see the Mueller report (I believe there are ways they can accomplish this without 24/7 focus from us and the news) and IF there is some major shit there, then we bring out the guns but until then we drop it like the dead fish it currently is.
