"Tell them (the South Carolinians who wanted to nullify the Tariff Act of 1832) that I will hang the first man of them I can get my hands on to the first tree I can find." —President Andy Jackson
Donald Trump launched his presidential bid by going after destructive "free" trade treaties that have all but destroyed our most important job sectors: Industrial, manufacturing and agriculture. NAFTA being the first: NAFTA (No American Factories Taking Applications) according to Soviet traitor, CFR/Trilaterialst, Henry Kissinger: "What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system...a first step toward a new world order." July 18, 1993
If you missed this in one of my columns, I would like you to take a look at this map published in the Denver [Com]Post, August 30, 1992: A New North America. Note page 2 and the comment about NAFTA. That deadly agreement was the prelude to the equally traitorous North American Union - something Ted Cruz's wife is very familiar with: Ted Cruz again battles 'globalist' charge against wife - Senate-race opponents spotlighted her CFR membership
While that "agreement" was being pushed by the hands that own and direct the White House and the Outlaw Congress, many of us tried to warn, but few paid any attention. It is a blue print to break up our country in favor of regions comprising a world government. Right there for the whole country to see but who did not see because NAFTA was being sold as a way to bring "cheap" goods to America. It's a tragedy the American people pay more attention to the premiere of the new Star Wars movie than solutions to stop the hemorrhaging of jobs in this country:
"The first of the job and sovereignty killing treaties so innocently called an agreement was NAFTA. Official title: North American Free Trade Agreement. In reality: No American Factories Taking Applications. That unconstitutional tool of the global elite was pushed through by globalist Newt Gingrich with enormous help from Rush Limbaugh. Marxist Bill Clinton signed it into "law" in December 1993. Then began the massive destruction of the three job sectors that made America the most prosperous nation on the face of this earth: manufacturing, industrial and agriculture.
"A bill was introduced in 2011 to finally get us out. It got zero attention from the old media. Forget FOX. Too many Americans pay little to no attention to bills sitting in the biggest whore house on the planet- except for hot button issues like abortion; it went nowhere. There were too few of us to make it happen.
"NAFTA was also supposed to usher in a new age of prosperity among the American people as thousands upon thousands of good-paying jobs were to be created through the increase in trade surplus that never quite came to fruition. As you can imagine, just the opposite happened. Each and every year more and more jobs are outsourced to Mexico where labor is incredibly cheap and environmental concerns are a mere afterthought. The raft of jobs outsourced to Mexico forced American workers into direct competition with one another and drove down wages for all.
"Now Americans are forced to compete, not only with one another, but also with Mexican workers who are willing to work for much less than the average American. In the U.S., the average factory worker makes roughly $18 per hour while his Mexican counterpart earns just $3 per hour. This has encouraged a “race to the bottom” in which American companies are frequently relocating production facilities across the border. Iconic American companies such as Coca Cola, Ford, RCA, General Motors, General Electric and Nokia have all opened up assembly plants in Mexico. In fact, GE employs 30,000 Mexicans in 35 factories in the country.
"This race to the bottom has had a devastating effect on America's manufacturing base. Pre-NAFTA, the U.S. had 16.8 million people employed in the manufacturing field. By 2007, that number was down to just 13.9 million. That accounts for over 20 percent of America's manufacturing jobs over the past 14 years. Those good-paying manufacturing jobs have been replaced by low-paying service sector jobs with little or no benefits."
"In 2000, the Outlaw Congress had the chance to get us out of GATT/WTO. The effort was killed by John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi. Since the impostor president has been squatting in the White House, John Boehner has given Barry Soetoro aka Obama every damn "free" trade treaty or "agreement" he's pushed for; sleeping with America's enemy, Johnny boy. Do have another glass of the red wine you're so fond of.
"On June 9, 2005, the House voted 338-86 to reject a motion to withdraw congressional approval of the 1994 agreement establishing the WTO and governing body, GATT.
"One book that stands out on this issue is America's Projectionist Takeoff 1815- 1914: The Neglected American School of Political Economy by Michael Hudson. I invite you to read the comments about Hudson's book; it really is a must read. What made us a power house has been destroyed since 1994 and yet, every two years the American people who have suffered so badly because of all those treaties continue to reelect the same scum bags back to the House of Representatives and Senate who have taken us to poverty with more in the works. "
Again in the 2013-2014 session, another attempt was made: H.R. 156 (113th): To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement. The bill was introduced by a Democrat. It had ZERO sponsors before it died. Not one damn Republican signed on to a bill to get rid of an "agreement" that has caused so much destruction to our economy and our fellow Americans. Why? Because the GOP is owned by the anti-American jobs U.S. Chamber of Commerce and big corporations - same as the Democratic Party, just add Hollywood. Support for that bill by the American people was virtually non existent again because they either knew nothing about it, don't care or are too under educated to even understand the issue. There was no help from the media, including FOX.
"This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized." former U.S. Congressman Charles August Lindbergh, Sr.
The one thing Trump cannot do as president is abolish the head of the beast that has siphoned of the wealth of we the people: The unconstitutional "Federal" Reserve. The privately owned banking robber barons who continue to loot this country with the full blessing of the Outlaw Congress. It was the issue of the central bank which drew my attention 25 years ago prompting me to give up my career, a million dollars in paychecks and so much time with my family giving speeches, writing and being a guest on radio shows thousands of times. What I was learning was sickening. I wanted to do what I could to educate anyone who would listen so I published my 45 pg booklet, Why A Bankrupt America, in February 1993 and sold 1,653,000 copies at cost until I retired it in mid-2004. Since then many millions now know the truth about that "federal" bank which is no more federal than Federal Express.
The damage done to the people of this country since the "Federal" Reserve Act was passed on December 23, 1913 is staggering. It's impossible to cover this critical issue in one column but it takes time to learn and understand it. You can't solve a problem until you know how it started.
Either the American people take the time to understand what's killing our economy - besides those treaties - or they will continue buying the same old election BS from Republicans about smaller government! lower taxes! as well as the same socialist/Marxist policies pushed by the Democrats. While there are hundreds of books on the subject, most I have read, along with thousands of articles on the Internet, below are resources I feel can educate anyone fairly quickly, so do share with friends and family:

The Forgotten Role of the Constitution in Monetary Law, Texas Review & Law of Politics
Banking and Currency and the Money Trust, Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr.
The Federal Reserve - A Corrupt Institution
"Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over.
"This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
"Some people who think that the Federal Reserve Banks United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.
"These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky's passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire.
They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky's disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any.
"In 1912 the National Monetary Association, under the chairmanship of the late Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, made a report and presented a vicious bill called the National Reserve Association bill. This bill is usually spoken of as the Aldrich bill. Senator Aldrich did not write the Aldrich bill. He was the tool, if not the accomplice, of the European bankers who for nearly twenty years had been scheming to set up a central bank in this Country and who in 1912 has spent and were continuing to spend vast sums of money to accomplish their purpose.

[Just a short note about 9/11 and Smart Meters. The cost of America's undeclared "war" (invasion) in Afghanistan has now reached $1 trillion borrowed dollars - massive debt heaped on us all based on what happened on 9/11.

"We were opposed to the Aldrich plan for a central bank. The men who rule the Democratic Party then promised the people that if they were returned to power there would be no central bank established here while they held the reigns of government. Thirteen months later that promise was broken, and the Wilson administration, under the tutelage of those sinister Wall Street figures who stood behind Colonel House, established here in our free Country the worm-eaten monarchical institution of the "King's Bank" to control us from the top downward, and from the cradle to the grave. "
Yes, it was a conspiracy. Here is the full history of how the wealth of this nation was hijacked: The Creature from Jekyll Island - A Second Look at the Federal Reserve by G. Edward Griffin. And The Coming Battle, true history of our national debt.
By now most Americans paying attention are fully aware of the monstrous betrayal by Rep. Paul Ryan last week. (Marco Rubio skipped the vote; how convenient.) Unfortunately, I knew it was going to happen because the GOP majority in the Outlaw Congress has done it before; two of my columns:
They did: Rape and Betrayal by the GOP: Let Me Count the Ways, December 16, 2014. "And, what did those incumbents who won their primaries and got reelected to the U.S. House do on December 11, 2014? The U.S. House of Whores voted to pass a $1.1 TRILLION dollar bill which will finance the government through September 2015 - including amnesty, all the programs underway to keep illegals here and Obamacare."
Last week, smarmy Rep. Paul Ryan led the betrayal of the American people along with the U.S. Senate; the criminal impostor in the White House signed that massive 2,000 page bill into "law". [Obama is a fake president who usurped the office, but no one seems to give a damn except those of us who believe the Constitution is the law of the land.] For this, Paul Ryan, professional politician and pimp to special interests received a standing ovation. Yes, he did.
That $1.1 trillion dollar rape funds the sickening hoax called Climate Change. Funds baby killing machine, Planned Parenthood. So much for pro-life conservatives who continue to sucker their supporters; increases the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars in unconstitutional spending. John Boehner was in bed with Nancy Pelosi to get virtually every "free" trade treaty rammed through the Outlaw Congress. December 11, 2015, Ryan and Pelosi had dinner together. The fix was in no matter how many phone calls we the people made in opposition.
Before last week's vote people should have seen it coming: Speaker-in-Waiting Paul Ryan Abandons Opposition to Big-Spending Budget Deal
Sen. Jeff Sessions: Omnibus a ‘Betrayal’, Increases Foreign Workers, Fully Funds Obama Immigration Agenda. By all means, keep bringing in foreign labor with 94 MILLION Americans out of work and 48 MILLION on food stamps. Cheap labor while Americans starve or don't have enough money to heat their home this winter.
• [Rush] Limbaugh ranted, “Sanctuary cities fully funded. All Middle East immigration programs fully funded. All these have been exploited by terrorists. Sanctuary cities fully funded! All refugees fully funded. The release of criminal aliens, fully funded. Everything the Democrat, leftist, wet dream has just been paid for!”
As I have written so many times: Build a fence 20' tall, no problem. Rolling concertina wire from top to bottom. Forget California run by a bunch of socialists, communists and nose candy burn out, Jerry Brown. Use the National Guard in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. Start with the 'hot' spots first and work in each direction. I have no doubt there are enough experienced National Guard to build such a fence. They're already on the payroll so you won't have massive labor costs from contractors, just pay for materials and housing costs if not close enough to a military base.
Do the governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico need the government's permission to build a fence on their state's sovereign soil? I say no, but I'm not a constitutional lawyer. Donald Trump has promised to go after illegals and amnesty as soon as he's sworn in, but in the meantime, I think he should discuss this with the best legal minds (I can give him a few excellent references) and those three state governors. My state of Texas is being invaded every day with hundreds, sometimes thousands of illegals. Our governor is doing what he can with our Attorney General, but drastic action is needed NOW.
One constitutional provision of that bill. One: Congress blocks bailout of ObamaCare insurers in spending bill
GOP, Democratic Leaders, Hide Plan To Outsource 200,000 Americans’ Jobs: "House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Democratic leaders have hidden a bipartisan plan in the 2016 appropriations bill that would outsource blue-collar jobs held by almost 200,000 Americans to lower-wage temporary foreign workers. The covert plan could also cut the salaries of many additional American workers, and force taxpayers to pay additional billions in welfare costs, so companies can boost their profits."
For this voters gave Republicans a majority in the House in 2010. In 2014 they put even more "conservatives" in the House and Senate. Last week both the House and Senate sh*t right in the face of every voter who put their faith in them to uphold their campaign promises.
There's a push to find a candidate to replace 100% pro-amnesty dirt bag, Paul Ryan, both as Speaker of the House and kick his backside out of Congress altogether: Movement to Primary Speaker Paul Ryan Out of Congress Picks Up Steam. The Wisconsin Tea Party is heading up the effort. I don't know if it's too late to find a candidate; filing dates. If you lie in Wisconsin contact the Wisconsin Tea Party and help throw Ryan out of office. Watch out for vote fraud.
How is it possible to vote to spend $1.1 TRILLION dollars when the people's purse, the U.S. Treasury, is overdrawn almost $20 TRILLION dollars? How do you write a check for $1.1 TRILLION dollars when your checking account is overdrawn almost $20 TRILLION dollars?
Why, the magical money machine called the Fed will keep supplying them with borrowed money. Use debt to fund more debt. The magical money machine will just keep printing worthless paper for which you, me, our children and grandchildren will pay the interest on forever.
Congress needs the candy store or they would not be able to continue borrowing to fund trillions in unconstitutional spending running the debt clear to Pluto. Without the central bank Congress would not be able to take America into never ending, undeclared wars; the Viet Nam 'era' or 'military interventions' every time the economy takes a dive. Oh, you didn't know? War is big business. The economy goes into a recession or depression, crank up the war machine. Business has been booming since 9/11.
The economy is imploding and nothing can stop another disaster that is rolling across this country- worse than 2008. 2016 will be devastating for tens of millions of Americans. The next president won't take office until January 2017.
In 2007, former Congressman Ron Paul introduced a bill to get rid of the "Fed". ZERO sponsors for the reasons above. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was and is an Act of Congress. Donald Trump cannot get rid of it using an Executive Order. However, Trump can do as Andrew Jackson did:
"The greatest party battle centered around the Second Bank of the United States, a private corporation but virtually a Government-sponsored monopoly. When Jackson appeared hostile toward it, the Bank threw its power against him. Clay and Webster, who had acted as attorneys for the Bank, led the fight for its recharter in Congress. "The bank," Jackson told Martin Van Buren, "is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" Jackson, in vetoing the recharter bill, charged the Bank with undue economic privilege. His views won approval from the American electorate; in 1832 he polled more than 56 percent of the popular vote and almost five times as many electoral votes as Clay."
But...the reality of the situation is the GOP establishment, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the list goes on - do not want Donald Trump to become president. They don't want to give him the power of the bully pulpit and I believe will do everything in their power if he's elected, to destroy him. Even if it benefits the Democratic/Communist Party USA.
There can be no economic prosperity in this country until the "Fed" is abolished. They create inflation, deflation, booms, busts, depressions and recessions. Learn the truth. Take the time to read those links above; over coffee or lunch.
There is no expiration date for the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The thieving criminals who pushed it through made sure of that. It has to be abolished. Think that will happen with the current incumbents in the U.S. Congress?
If your member of Congress has done nothing to kill the cancer and continuing down the same road, what makes you think re-electing the same incumbent next year will get the job done? Abolishing the unconstitutional "Fed", getting us out of all "free" trade treaties, abolishing Obamacare, get us out of the UN once and for all, abolishing unconstitutional cabinets - the most critical issues have been completely ignored by your incumbent and mine, who is retiring, thank God. Tragically, we the people are going to pay dearly in the near future.
No. It's not the other party's fault. The Republican and Democratic/Communist Party USA are two wings on the same bird of prey. Should Donald Trump get elected I have no doubt he will go after the cure on things like trade and hopefully, the head of the beast, the "Fed". It's also up to every voter to educate themselves on the disabilities of our monetary system and demand the only true solution: Abolish the Fed. I know there's a vote next month on a bill from presidential hopeful, Rand Paul, to audit the "Fed". A good thing, but the ultimate solution is to abolish the central bank. That won't come without the dirtiest war this country has ever seen. That's how high the stakes are and puppets like Jeb! will never turn on their masters.
Both the House and Senate are now gone until January. Nice paid vacations, again. They're in your district right now. Call their offices and find out if they will be making any public appearances and go give them a piece of your mind - politely works best. Here's the roll call vote in the House for that sickening 2,000 page omnibus spending bill; I doubt any of them read the full text. Here's the roll call vote for the Senate. Thank them for betraying you and sticking the knife in what's left of the middle class. For part one click below.

It’s War: Stop the TPP and TAFTA
By: Devvy Kidd
January 26, 2014
NewsWithViews.com
"The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws." President Andrew Jackson
The first of the job and sovereignty killing treaties so innocently called an agreement was NAFTA. Official title: North American Free Trade Agreement. In reality: No American Factories Taking Applications. That unconstitutional tool of the global elite was pushed through by globalist Newt Gingrich with enormous help from Rush Limbaugh. Marxist Bill Clinton signed it into "law" in December 1993. Then began the massive destruction of the three job sectors that made America the most prosperous nation on the face of this earth: manufacturing, industrial and agriculture.
A bill was introduced in 2011 to finally get us out. It got zero attention from the old media. Forget FOX. Too many Americans pay little to no attention to bills sitting in the biggest whore house on the planet- except for hot button issues like abortion; it went no where. There were too few of us to make it happen.


“NAFTA has done way too much damage, and we need to repeal it. NAFTA has cost too many jobs, eroded our industrial base and decimated towns and communities,” he said in a statement. “Enough is enough – we need to focus on creating jobs right here in the United States – not in foreign countries.”

"The bill currently has just 10 co-sponsors: Democratic Reps. Joe Baca, Lynn Woolsey and Bob Filner of California; Michael Capuano (MA), Peter DeFazio (OR), Marcy Kaptur (OH), Larry Kissell (NC) and Michael Michaud (ME). Two Republicans are also backing the legislation: Texas’ Ron Paul and North Carolina’s Walter Jones. The bill has be referred to the House Ways and Means Committee, but no action has been taken on it since that time.

"Prior to the implementation of NAFTA, the U.S. held a small trade surplus with Mexico of approximately $10 million. By 2007, that surplus had turned into an astounding $91 billion trade deficit. With Canada and Mexico combined, the U.S. has taken a $24 billion trade deficit prior to NAFTA and turned it into a $190 billion deficit – a 691 percent increase.
"NAFTA was also supposed to usher in a new age of prosperity among the American people as thousands upon thousands of good-paying jobs were to be created through the increase in trade surplus that never quite came to fruition. As you can imagine, just the opposite happened. Each and every year more and more jobs are outsourced to Mexico where labor is incredibly cheap and environmental concerns are a mere afterthought. The raft of jobs outsourced to Mexico forced American workers into direct competition with one another and drove down wages for all.
"Now Americans are forced to compete, not only with one another, but also with Mexican workers who are willing to work for much less than the average American. In the U.S., the average factory worker makes roughly $18 per hour while his Mexican counterpart earns just $3 per hour. This has encouraged a “race to the bottom” in which American companies are frequently relocating production facilities across the border. Iconic American companies such as Coca Cola, Ford, RCA, General Motors, General Electric and Nokia have all opened up assembly plants in Mexico. In fact, GE employs 30,000 Mexicans in 35 factories in the country.
"This race to the bottom has had a devastating effect on America’s manufacturing base. Pre-NAFTA, the U.S. had 16.8 million people employed in the manufacturing field. By 2007, that number was down to just 13.9 million. That accounts for over 20 percent of America’s manufacturing jobs over the past 14 years. Those good-paying manufacturing jobs have been replaced by low-paying service sector jobs with little or no benefits."
So many of us across this country warned what would happen, who and what was behind it:
"What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system...a first step toward a new world order." July 18, 1993, CFR/Trilateralist Henry Kissinger, LA Times on NAFTA. There's no question in my mind Kissinger was a Soviet spy; a dirty traitor. Yes, communists were elected to Congress; see The Venona Secrets: Exposing Soviet Espionage and America's Traitors.
I would like you to take a look at this map published in the Denver [Com]Post, August 30, 1992: A New North America. While that "agreement" was being pushed by the hands that own and direct the WH and the Outlaw Congress, many of us tried to warn, but few paid any attention. It is a blue print to break up our country in favor of regions comprising a world government. Right there for the whole country to see but who did not see because NAFTA was being sold as a way to bring "cheap" goods to America.
Twenty years ago. Twenty year olds today were infants when it was passed. Thirty year olds were age 10. I feel very few to this day have any understanding about just how momentous it was and what it would do to this country. I knew because I was running for Congress at the time and did a crash course on trade and tariffs. I also read an outstanding book, The Pooring of America: Competition & The Myth of Free Trade by Dr. Ravi Batra. Today, those adults don't have a clue; their grand parents and parents driven out of long time, secure, good paying jobs, losing everything and forced into big urban cities infested with crime and violence looking for new jobs.
My opponent, incumbent Wally the Waffle Herger, wrote a letter to the Farm Bureau in that district two weeks before the vote outlining how bad NAFTA would be for farmers and ranchers. Two weeks later he voted for it anyway. The people in that district went on to reelect him after he voted to destroy their livelihoods; I've already written many times about how vote fraud won Wally reelection, so I won't waste time here. The Waffle spent most of his life on the public dime, first as a school board honcho in 1976, then on to the California State Legislature for eight years and then the Outlaw Congress for 26 years. He's now retired with full pension benefits paid for by the sweat of your labor for the rest of his life. (With service of 20-25 years, a Member of Congress could retire with up to 80 percent of his or her final salary replaced..) The Waffle just made the 25 year mark.
Next came the grand daddy: The WTO/GATT. The World Trade Organization/ General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The original one was signed in 1947. The big and final one signed into "law" in Marrakesh in 1994, by Marxist Bill Clinton. Full page ad, NY Times, April 15, 1994:1944. Bretton Woods: The IMF and the World Bank. 1945. San Francisco: The United Nations. 1994, Marrakech: The World Trade Organization. History knows where it's going. The final act of the Uruguay Round....to the WTO, the third pillar of the New World Order, along with the UN and the IMF."
We the people are forced to fund our own destruction by thugs in the IRS courtesy of your incumbent and mine. The Outlaw Congress has been unconstitutionally stealing the fruits of our labor in dues for the communist UN and another cabal of evil thieves, the IMF, International Monetary Fund longer than I've been alive. No where in Art. 1, Sec. 8, does it give the U.S. Congress any authority to steal from us to give to those private organizations out to destroy our sovereignty. Yet, do the people demand candidates running for Congress, challengers or incumbents, get us out of those destructive entities draining the life blood of America? Oh, a few of us "extremists".
During the hearings on that monster GATT/WTO, French financier, the late Sir James Goldsmith, testified in front of Ernest Hollings committee. He demonstrated that GATT would gut the American textile market. The following are some quotes from the Washington Times, Dec. 6, 1993, which accurately reflect Sir Goldsmith's statements during the hearings:
"Global free trade will force the poor of the rich countries to subsidize the rich in poor countries. What GATT means is that our national wealth, accumulated over centuries, will be transferred from a developed country like Britain to developing countries like Communist China, now building its first oceangoing navy in 500 years. China, with its 1.2 billion people, three Indochinese states with 900 million, the former Soviet republics with some 300 million, and many more can supply skilled labor for a fraction of Western costs. Five dollars in Communist China is the equivalent of a $100 wage in Europe.
"It is quite amazing that GATT is sowing the seeds for global social upheaval and that it is not even the subject of debate in America ... If the masses understood the truth about GATT, there would be blood in the streets of many capitals. A healthy national economy has to produce a large part of its own needs. It cannot simply import what it needs and use its labor force to provide services for other countries. We have to rethink from top to bottom why we have elevated global free trade to the status of sacred cow, or moral dogma. It is a fatally flawed concept that will impoverish and destabilize the industrialized world while cruelly ravaging the Third World."
There were riots in a few locations around the country over the WTO; up to 100,000 people in Seattle. Huge ones in Europe. The late Sir Goldsmith told America what would happen and it did on a massive scale.
In 2000, the Outlaw Congress had the chance to get us out of GATT/WTO. The effort was killed by John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi. Since the impostor president has been squatting in the White House, John Boehner has given Barry Soetoro aka Obama every damn "free" trade treaty or "agreement" he's pushed for; sleeping with America's enemy, Johnny boy. Do have another glass of the red wine you're so fond of.
On June 9, 2005, the House voted 338-86 to reject a motion to withdraw congressional approval of the 1994 agreement establishing the WTO and governing body, GATT. George Bush, Jr., following in his father's steps to destroy our sovereignty and American jobs in favor of a new world order signed another job killing treaty: CAFTA - the Central America Free Trade Agreement. While the globalists in the Outlaw Congress were working to get CAFTA shoved down our throats, I was driving around the country doing my work. At every hotel and restaurant I ask clerks, waiters/waitresses: What do you think of the new "free" trade treaty being proposed, CAFTA? Not one American knew what I was talking about. Not a single working American knew anything about it; all I got is blank stares.
Once NAFTA got going, corporations that used to support American workers took MILLIONS of good paying, steady career jobs - particularly the steel and textile industry - and shipped them to Mexico. Suddenly, THOUSANDS of factories closed. Cities and towns that flourished for more than a century providing jobs for your grand parents generation they stayed in for their entire lives until retirement became little more than ghost towns. I know because I traveled extensively through Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. I saw with my own eyes what NAFTA did; it has been a complete and total disaster as has our participation in the WTO.
One book that stands out on this issue is America's Projectionist Takeoff 1815- 1914: The Neglected American School of Political Economy by Michael Hudson. I invite you to read the comments about Hudson's book; it really is a must read. What made us a power house has been destroyed since 1994 and yet, every two years the American people who have suffered so badly because of all those treaties continue to reelect the same scum bags back to the House of Representatives and Senate who have taken us to poverty with more in the works.
"Seems that, despite the academic consensus that free trade is win-win for all, free trade is not free. Great nations that have risen to global power by protecting their manufacturing, like Britain in the early 19th century, have begun their relative decline when they embraced free trade. Between 1870 and 1914, projectionist America and Germany both shoved Britain aside.
"Since Y2K, China, which protects its industrial base by keeping its currency artificially cheap, has surged past Italy, Britain, France, Germany and Japan to become the world's second largest economy. And they are gaining steadily on us. Free trade appears to be the policy of fading nations.
"Perhaps it is time for a profit and loss statement of its costs and benefits. Undeniably, free trade has been a bonanza for the top 1 percent and many among our top 10 percent. As U.S. manufacturers shut down scores of thousands of U.S. factories to finance new plants in Asia, their production costs plummeted. Wages and benefits for Asians were, and are still, but a fraction of those of American workers.
"Health, safety and environmental standards were in some cases almost nonexistent. The eight-story garment factory in Bangladesh that collapsed in April, killing 1,100 workers, mostly women, and injuring another 2,500, would never have passed a U.S. building inspection.
"After having shifted production overseas and dramatically lowered costs, U.S. transnationals saw a surge in profits. These were used to push corporate salaries into the stratosphere, increase dividends to shareholders, and keep the Washington lobbyists working the Hill day and night for fast track and free trade. And the lifestyle of our corporate elites changed. Where their fathers walked sooty factory floors in smokestack towns in World War II, these masters of the universe fly Gulfstream Vs to Davos and Dubai to dine with titled Europeans, Saudi princes and Chinese billionaires.
"These are America's winners from free trade. The losers? Middle Americans. The average U.S. family has not seen a rise in real wages in 40 years. This is directly traceable to the loss of more than one-third of all U.S. manufacturing jobs. And that loss, that deindustrialization of America, is directly tied to the $10 trillion in trade deficits since Bush I.
"Writers who celebrate how U.S. imports have risen in this month or that year almost never mention the trade deficit for this month or that year. Perhaps that is because the United States has not run a trade surplus in four decades, whereas, in the first 70 years of the 20th century, we never ran a trade deficit. Trade surpluses add to GDP; trade deficits subtract from GDP.
"And when in a company town the company closes the factory, the town often dies. And all the little satellite businesses — bars, diners, food stores, pharmacies — that rose around the factory, they die, too. "The tombstones of countless dead towns across America should read: Killed by Free Trade. Tenured economists on college campuses call this "creative destruction." End of excerpt.
If you think it doesn't or won't affect you, it has and will continue through trickle down economics, one of the few things I agreed with Reagan. I live in a small town in W. Texas. Last week three businesses that were here when I arrived in June 2006, closed their doors. The Permian Basin where I live is oil country. Good wages and fairly low unemployment. But, something is making people hold on to their money.
Now comes two more threats which will bring even more job losses. More jobs for people in foreign countries while Americans live on good stamps and unemployment for years. More loss of OUR sovereignty.
Don't listen to those promoting the TPP & Transatlantic Free Trade Area. While I am not against corporations (I think Hobby Lobby is a fine example of good, God fearing Americans running a highly successful private sector business), I am against what they've become, all for more money. Greed long ago took over love of country and decency.
Yes, I do fully understand the reality of what "free" trade did: Pitted American workers at double digit dollars per hour against workers in foreign countries making the equivalent of US $5.00 a day. Yes, I fully understand the problems all those "free" trade treaties created for companies and corporations here in America. Instead of throwing the rats out of the Outlaw Congress who caused this collapse of our job market, mega corporations put big money into their coffers to get them reelected. Uninformed Americans followed in the true sense of the herding technique because of blind loyalty to their party by reelecting the same incumbents whose votes contributed to killing our most important job markets. In reality, American workers fired themselves by supporting the same incumbents who destroyed their jobs.
But, it isn't just the "free" trade and cheap overseas wages, it's also about the purchasing power of the dollar, fiat currency and the "Federal" Reserve. Until one understands the devastation caused by our debauched currency along with heavy, progressive taxation, they won't get the full picture.
The TPP & TAFTA must be stopped because it is a job and sovereignty killing tool for world government advocates.
The Facts - What is TPP? - Very specific as to what the TPP is and how it will further destroy us
"Some call it the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA) and others call it the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). They're both names for the same thing, a dangerous proposal that will have disastrous effects on the economy, health, safety, freedom, and sovereignty of the United States and her citizens.
"Closed-door meetings started earlier this year on the proposed TAFTA/TTIP. Corporate interests in the United States and Europe have been pushing for an agreement for decades, but only now is it beginning to materialize. These moneyed interests now have more power than ever over our politicians and are using it to their advantage. These corporations are the ones really writing this agreement. Just like with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), there are over 600 corporate “advisers” with access to the text of the agreement, while even our elected congressional representatives cannot read the entire agreement. These corporations will be fine tuning the agreements to maximize their profits, with no regard to what this will do to the United States.
"Unlike many of the previous agreements the United States has signed onto, TAFTA/TTIP is not an agreement with a low-wage, low-regulation country. Wages in the EU are comparable to those in the United States, and European labor and environmental standards are often more stringent than those we have here. We are unlikely to see this agreement have the same direct negative impact on U.S. jobs that previous agreements have had, with scores of U.S. jobs sent overseas due to agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Of the 29 chapters in TAFTA/TTIP, only 5 directly deal with trade.
"So if this agreement is not about trade, what is it about? Inevitably this will be about gutting the ability of our government to do its job. This agreement is likely to further entrench the power of corporations to shape the laws of sovereign nations to fit their needs. If this agreement is passed we will be giving up more of our sovereignty, not to Europe, but to corporations who care only about their bottom lines." More at the link.
The TPP and TAFTA are poison. Both are being negotiated behind closed doors. Not even the Outlaw Congress is allowed to see the text in those "agreements":
"U.S. Senator Ron Wyden has introduced S. 3225, legislation that would require the Office of the United States Trade Representative to disclose its TPP documents to all members of Congress. Wyden asserted. “The majority of Congress is being kept in the dark as to the substance of the TPP negotiations, while representatives of U.S. corporations — like Halliburton, Chevron, PHRMA, Comcast, and the Motion Picture Association of America — are being consulted and made privy to details of the agreement.”
"As the federal government shutdown continues, Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Asia for secret talks on a sweeping new trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is often referred to by critics as "NAFTA on steroids," and would establish a free trade zone that would stretch from Vietnam to Chile, encompassing 800 million people — about a third of world trade and nearly 40 percent of the global economy. While the text of the treaty has been largely negotiated behind closed doors and, until June, kept secret from Congress, more than 600 corporate advisers reportedly have access to the measure, including employees of Halliburton and Monsanto.
"This is not mainly about trade," says Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch. "It is a corporate Trojan horse. The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments, limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establishing new powers for corporations."
Only one member of the Outlaw Congress read all 28,000 pages of the WTO/GATT nightmare, former Senator Hank Brown [R-UT] who refused to vote for it. He left after one term. Not one member of the Outlaw Congress including favorites like Steve King [R-Iowa], Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio nd Mike Lee [R-UT] read the $1.1 TRILLION borrowed dollars, another more debt budget agreement pushed through a few weeks ago. Stealing us blind for hundreds of billions of unconstitutional rape: "All told, the bill would provide $1.012 trillion to the Pentagon and other federal agencies. An additional $92 billion would be set aside for overseas operations, including military activity in Afghanistan and assistance for the growing flow of refugees fleeing the war in Syria." A bill they didn't even bother to read
Now, we have two more "agreements" that will tighten the noose around our necks and the very body who has the authority to pass such agreements aren't even allowed to know what's in them except what has been leaked. Who is leading the pack in the GOP to sell us out, again? GOP set to fast-track 'New World Order' pact.
NEW YORK – "Republicans in the House are preparing to follow the lead of the White House and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to rubber-stamp the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, the most sweeping free-trade agreement since NAFTA.
"The White House seeks to pass it with a simple majority vote, without so much as introducing a single amendment to modify the language of the agreement it has negotiated behind closed doors. On Jan. 9, 2013, in a little-noticed press release, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., together with ranking member Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich, announced they were introducing “fast track” trade promotion authority legislation as a prelude to bringing up the TPP for expected passage in the near future.
"With House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, already deciding to vote with Senate Democrats to grant fast track authority for congressional consideration of the TPP, the only remaining opposition to the bill seems to be coming from House Democrats."
That sleeze ball does have challengers against him in the upcoming primary. But, the party machine will throw all their money and support to reelect Johnny. Because, after all, John Boehner serves his global masters, not the people of his district for the past 23 years. However, there is a tea party candidate who could beat him IF the people in his district get out the vote to toss Boehner out on his butt. If Boehner allegedly wins, the alleged loser closest to his vote total must demand a full hand recount and cross check the voting rolls. Otherwise, Boehner will walk right back to Congress to continue defecating on the Constitution and selling us out to the global elite.
Please, take the time today to write a short letter - no email - and send it to the district office (where the votes are; DC is where the lobbyists operate) for your U.S. House member and Senator and tell them: NO on the TPP and TAFTA. Remind them the primaries are looming. Stop killing more jobs and destroying our sovereignty.
Also, if you haven't written a snail mail letter to the district office to the thief who represents you in the U.S. House, please do it. NO amnesty in any form for liars, cheats and thieves; illegal aliens. Deport not reward.. This is urgent; see bullet points at the bottom of my recent column.
Please continue buying Made in America; see huge list here. We can create a job boom simply by purchasing Made in the USA. Support American workers because those paychecks benefit local businesses. I am not against fair trade, but prior to NAFTA 97% of all shoes were made here by American workers. Today it's less than 3%; all those good paying, permanent full time jobs gone to COMMUNIST China and countries like Brazil. Our textile industry the same; destroyed. Our steel industry the same; destroyed. Nearly 10 MILLION full time career long jobs gone. We can turn this around and slowly are, but it takes being committed to saving America, not supporting anti-American corporations who don't give a tinker's damn about you and your family, just your money.
Do you have time today or even tomorrow night to save your country? To write a couple of snail mail letters? If we do nothing, nothing gets done. Those bandits in the Outlaw Congress need to have thousands, tens of thousands of hard copy letters flooding their district offices. Please share this information with your social networking sites and through the grapevine, if you will. Networking works.
