but equal rights and equal laws." President Andrew Jackson
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.
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.
29: To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the
North American Free Trade Agreement
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."

many of us across this country warned what would happen, who and
what was behind it:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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".
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:
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
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."
were riots in a few locations around the country over the WTO;
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Buchanan explains it perfectly:
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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,

TPP & TAFTA must be stopped because it is a job and sovereignty
killing tool for world government advocates.
Facts - What is TPP? - Very specific as to what the TPP is
and how it will further destroy us
the TPP - a good overview
Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA):
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.
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.
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.
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.
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":
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.”
Corporate Trojan Horse": Obama Pushes Secretive TPP Trade Pact,
Would Rewrite Swath of U.S. Laws
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
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
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.
we have two more "agreements" that will tighten the noose around
our necks and the very body who has the authority to pass such

has been leaked. Who is leading the pack in the GOP to sell us
out, again? GOP

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.
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.
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."
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 Constitutution
