    If there is, they sure aren't doing a good job of it.

    “Unfortunately, too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up… We see the utter loss of shame among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just double down.”

    I'm not so pessimistic as you & the others here. But I get the reason. The sky is falling with anything that Trump does.

    Market prices in crops are always subject to trends and the trend for soybeans was already in place. The immediate affect will be our soybean farmers will suffer setbacks. However a good farmer doesnt put all their eggs in one basket. I feel confident about the future.

    But a farmer had to make decisions about what crops to plant months before Trump announced his trade war.


    And Trump's trade war just killed one of the largest US markets for soy bean exports before the crop is even harvested.

    No doubt that Brazil's soybean farmers will reap immediate benefits. But remember trade goes in many directions!


    Brazil's remains the largest seller of soybeans to China but its exports to China tend to be exhausted in the fall months or December.

    "Brazil will run out of soybeans to export fairly quickly in 2018, if China redirects 90 to 95 percent of their attention to importing Brazilian beans," said Terry Reilly, an analyst with Chicago brokerage Futures International.

    China also has to contend with tighter supplies from Argentina, the world's third-biggest soybean exporter.

    Argentina drought cuts supplies
    A prolonged drought in Argentina means its domestic harvest is expected to be significantly lower. As a result, Argentina's crushers — producers of soymeal and soy oil — have been importing more supplies of U.S. beans. Earlier this month, it was reported that Argentina made its biggest order of U.S. soy since 1997.

    PS: Today, August soybean futures closed 10 cents higher at $8.395. November futures closed 9.5 cents higher at $8.5525

    As I mentioned, our farmers will take a hit. But all is not lost. There's a drought in Argentina.

    I'm pretty sure he does and I wouldn't be surprise if other members of his family are not in the same boat.

    Re: President Donald Trump

    So much for how the storyline that the FBI was trying to disrupt Trump's summit:

    @MarshallCohen 55m55 minutes ago

    CNN can now confirm Rod Rosenstein did in fact give Trump the option to delay announcing the Russian hacking indictment until *after* the Helsinki summit. The White House told Rosenstein it was OK to announce before the summit, so he did. (from @Kevinliptakcnn and @LauraAJarrett)

    Ah yes, the global warming that Trump denies. I’m guessing he didn’t take that into account when he started his ill conceived trade war.

    Why? That's like having Bob Baffert train Francis the Talking Mule for the Kentucky Derby and firing him if Francis loses.
