America’s current economic unwinding didn't
begin on Wall Street in 2008, as is often reiterated in the corporate
media. Instead, its genesis lies in the affluence to poverty trade regiments
enacted by President Clinton, beginning in 1993.
Seduced by assurances that Free Trade would create millions of new
high paying jobs within the United States; Democrats, aided by
Republican politicos like Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole and David
Gergen succumbed to K Street coercion, and codified Free Trade
into American law.
However, the economic Elysium predicted by backers of Free Trade
prior to its passage never developed. Principally because Free
Trade, as a 21st century neo-colonial economic compact, was no
longer nation-based. Rather, this new version was a United
Nation’s developed transnational colonialism. A
colonialism designed to benefit a new superclass of
cosmopolitan. Stakeholders bereft of nationalistic
sentimentalities, itching to profit from the coming realignment in
Correspondingly, America’s most acute trade-related dilemma today is
unemployment. However, it’s impossible for the United States
to address the problem of trade-related dislocations, even modestly,
when the entirety of our nation’s trade policy is premised upon the
notion that surrendering America’s economy to foreign interests,
while simultaneously relocating tens of millions of American jobs
offshore, somehow benefits our nation’s competitiveness.
Remembering, it isn’t actually competition when one nation, America,
supplies the rest of the world (its economic rivals) with the
prerequisites required for their mercantile success.
Including, providing them the education, technology, infrastructure,
financing, and jobs needed to dominate every sector of international
commerce. Especially, since it’s been your tax dollars,
predominantly, subsidizing the conveyance of these prerequisites
Clearly the American people have been sacrificed; duped into
underwriting their own economic demise by our country’s elected
public servants in Washington.
Hence, when Fed Chairman Ben Bernake tells Congress, as he did last
February, that unemployment will stay high and that the nation’s
recovery would remain slow for years to come; he’s stating the
obvious. As Washington has, since codifying Free Trade, given
away millions upon millions of America’s highest paying most sought
after jobs, all in pursuit of some Agenda 21 driven
Consequently, no matter which side wins in this upcoming election,
Democrat or Republican, it will be impossible for America to ever
again create enough jobs, which pay a sufficient wage for ordinary
workaday people to flourish.
Moreover, many Washington technocrats actually think that creating
an economically enfeebled America is beneficial for our global
maturation. Believing poverty and depravation will help induce
America to relinquish its freedoms and embrace global
governance. Thus, both parties continue to facilitate the
Chinaification of thousands of American industries.
Further spotlighting Washington’s affluence to poverty trade
stratagem, were media reports from earlier this year, which
disclosed that both political parties allowed General Motors and
Bank of America to use bailout funds (your tax dollars) to continue
to ship American jobs overseas. All while domestic
Combine that with equal culpability for institutionalized banking
fraud, systemic government corruption, constitutional execration, an
ignominious judiciary, bailouts, foreclosures, open borders,
Obamacare, endless wars, skyrocketing food prices, soaring energy
costs, plummeting living standards; and well, the result was
predictable: A dysfunctional nation that is morally, ethically and
Bearing in mind, that if Free Trade and global governance meant
slashed executive compensation and massive dislocations at the
bourse; rather than middle-American decimation; you can rest assure
there wouldn’t be a single CEO, Wall Street banker, or Washington
bureaucrat in support. Not even for reasons of “social
equality” or “environmental justice”.
Americans, therefore, should face two facts.
First, neither Democrats nor Republicans, both of whom use the
opaque communitarian veneer of global sustainability for political
cover, will solve America’s economic woes. Inasmuch as both parties
agree with the proposition of establishing global governance with
all it entails. Including Free Trade and the Agenda 21 goal of a
deindustrialized economically flaccid United States.
Secondly, that the Democrat and Republican parties are the same
philosophical organism, working to benefit the same constituency,
and that constituency obviously isn’t, you, the American citizen.
As literary critic George Steiner once wrote, “There is in every
suicide simultaneously apologia and acquiescence.” The same
can be said, in fact, of Washington’s obsession with the unholy
trinity of globalization: Free Trade, global governance and Agenda
