The United States Doesn’t Need “Free Trade”

As the above chart shows, the United States has the largest consumer market in the world.  Yet, as the chart below shows, China is the world’s largest manufacturer.

Of Course, the only beneficiaries are the Globalist Corporations who profit from no US trade barriers and low wages overseas.

The True Cost of Illegal Immigration to US Citizens

Image result for States that give welfare benefits to illegal aliens

The Bankers and Global Corporations trying to merge all nations into a global superstate can’t lose with illegal immigration in the United States, which is why politicians have done nothing to stop it.

Central Banks make money by funding the giveaways to illegals through manufacturing debt. Global corporations benefit by hiring much cheaper illegal immigrants to work in their US based sweat shops.

Its a win-win.

As the above map demonstrates, the US citizen is the one that carries the load. The myth that illegal immigrants do only those jobs that Americans don’t want to do is exactly that, a myth. As the chart below shows, they are taking away high paying jobs from U.S. citizens.

NAFTA has only aggravated the problem by moving 55,000 American factories overseas and laying off an estimated 30% of the US workforce.

Its a double whammy. Send American jobs overseas, and import low wage workers into the United States. No country can survive such in this situation.

To aggravate matters, “More than half of households headed by immigrants in the county illegally, or 62 percent, received welfare benefits in 2012, according to a report released by the Center for Immigration Studies.”

As the map above demonstrates, Welfare benefits for non-American citizens is in the billions of dollars. More money for the Central Banks. Cheap labor for the Globalist Corporations, and more debt for the American people.

The Globalist media tries to obfuscate these facts with cries of racism. The truth of the matter is that it is a critical question that is serious enough to destroy what is left of America.

Romney and Bill Clinton

Did Mitt Romney get Mormon Missionaries Expelled from Russia?

In the Mormon Church’s threefold mission, missionary work is paramount. The Church feels it has a divine directive to teach “The Gospel” to all people around the globe.

In the past, it has maintained policies of strict neutrality when it comes to politics. Mitt Romney’s support of Hillary Clinton, and her Globalist Policies seem to be placing that neutrality in jeopardy.

In his attempts to vilify Donald Trump, Romney has also taken up the Clinton mantra of vilifying Russia and  Putin as well.

“Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Friday slammed Russian President Vladimir Putin with who GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has expressed mutual respect. (Dec. 18, 2015)

“Important distinction: thug Putin kills journalists and opponents; our presidents kill terrorists and enemy combatants,” tweeted Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.”

Putin appears to have responded by banning Mormon missionaries from proselytizing house to house a few months after Romney’s comments. Now, in a clear escalation, Russia is in the process of deporting Mormon missionaries from its territories.

“The six, ages 19 to 25, had served as Mormon missionaries until Russia implemented a new anti-terrorism law on July 20 that requires any proselytizing to happen within houses of worship. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints redesignated all its missionaries in Russia as volunteers.

Courts in Samara ordered the six volunteers deported and banned from Russia for five years, but not for violating the new law. The church transferred five of the volunteers to a nearby Russian-speaking mission outside the country. The other volunteer was near the end of her service, and she returned to the United States.”

Even more troubling, is the alliance Mormon Church owned media outlets seem to have with the Romneyites. The Deseret News and KSL.com, both owned by the Church, have a current editorial policy that praises Hillary Clinton and vilifies her Republican opponent.

Putin clearly despises Clinton:

“With the protesters accusing Putin of having rigged recent elections, the Russian leader pointed an angry finger at Clinton, who had issued a statement sharply critical of the voting results. “She said they were dishonest and unfair,” Putin fumed in public remarks, saying that Clinton gave “a signal” to demonstrators working “with the support of the U.S. State Department” to undermine his power. “We need to safeguard ourselves from this interference in our internal affairs,” Putin declared.” (Source)

Since Putin exercises his influence over much of the former Soviet Union, where Mormon missionaries now proseltyze, it clearly behooves Church leaders to distance themselves from the small Romneyite faction that has usurped its voice in Global Affairs.

This includes the Deseret News and KSL.com, as well as Church owned Radio Stations. If the Church wants to continue its global missionary efforts, Romney needs to reckoned with or discarded.

Who is Better Armed? Police or Criminals?

As Black Lives Matters tries to stay relevant, they have changed their message to “demilitarize our police”. George Soros funds this mess, and it is easily discredited by the facts, so why does the media carry their water?

GUNS:

1. Police Guns – Approximately 65% of police departments choose to carry Glock pistols as part of their standard police duty equipment, mainly because this particular brand of firearm is renown for its extreme reliability, accuracy, and minimal weight. There are over 25 different varieties of Glock pistols, including the 9mm, 10mm, .40 cal, .45 cal, .380, & .357. While many police department’s standard issue is a .40 caliber pistol, some law enforcement officials have several options when it comes to selecting their weapon of choice. Some of the more common pistols are the Glock 22, Smith & Wesson 45 CPs, Beretta 92, & the .357 Sigs. (Source)

Criminal’s Guns: “The weapons of choice for gangs today are 9MM semiautomatic handguns, followed by .40 caliber and .45 caliber semiautomatics, says Thomas Ahern, an ATF senior agent based in Chicago.”

A semi-automatic pistol harnesses the energy of one shot to reload the chamber for the next. After a round is fired, the spent casing is ejected and a new round from the magazine is loaded into the chamber, allowing another shot to be fired as soon as the trigger is pulled again. Most pistols use recoil operation to do this, but some pistols use blowback or gas operation.

ANALYSIS: Looks like gang-bangers have the upper hand on this one. Unlike the police, they can ambush in numbers at will. They have the added advantage of not wearing cameras, so they don’t try to mentally justify every shot before they squeeze the trigger.

2. SHEER NUMBERS:

A. Total number of police in America: 1.1 million.

B. An estimated 1.4 million people are active in more than 33,000 street, prison and outlaw motorcycle gangs across the country,according to the FBI.

Analysis: Do the math, law enforcement is grossly outnumbered, especially  in high crime areas.

Militarization assumes a military authority is in charge. Clearly, all police forces are governed by local civilian authorities. To see all of the “weapons” the police bring with them in their battle against crime click here.

You will note that they are a far cry from militarization. The only hope we have of drawing the line is supporting those that are defending our side of it. More Americans need to express their disgust at those who seek their own criminal agenda, in the political arena, and use our local police officers as their pawns.

This includes the Globalist Republicans, like Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman, the Bush family and Globalist Democrats like the Clintons.

The political goal is simple, replace local police with police under Federal control.   This, along with our massive surveillance society, will enable the government to root out and destroy those political dissenters that oppose the Globalist takeover and destruction of our Bill of Rights.

Its been done before.

“Owing to its relatively small size—approximately 32,000 personnel at the end of 1944—the Gestapo relied extensively on the use of denunciations from among the local German populace in order to conduct its investigations. The Gestapo also cooperated extensively with the Ordnungspolizei for operations inside Germany and in the occupied territories.

The Gestapo operated without civil restraints. It had the authority of “preventative arrest,” and its actions were not subject to judicial appeal. Thousands of leftists, intellectuals, Jews, trade unionists, political clergy, and homosexuals simply disappeared into concentration camps after being arrested by the Gestapo. The political section could order prisoners to be murdered, tortured, or released. Together with the SS, the Gestapo managed the treatment of “inferior races,” such as Jews and Roma (Gypsies). During World War II the Gestapo suppressed partisan activities in the occupied territories and carried out reprisals against civilians. Gestapo members were included in the Einsatzgruppen (“deployment groups”), which were mobile death squads that followed the German regular army into Poland and Russia to kill Jews and other “undesirables.” Bureau IV B4 of the Gestapo, under Adolf Eichmann, organized the deportation of millions of Jews from other occupied countries to the extermination camps in Poland.

 

 

Clinton Secretary of State

Did Hillary Clinton Violate the Espionage Act?

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/hct1.png

Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 under President Obama. That was five years of selling out US Interests to foreign governments in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation.

According to the Government’s own Website:

“As the lead U.S. foreign affairs agency, the U.S. Department of State represents the United States at more than 270 diplomatic locations around the world, including embassies, consulates, and missions to international organizations.

The Secretary of State, the ranking member of the Cabinet and fourth in line of presidential succession, is the President’s principal advisor on foreign policy and the person chiefly responsible for representing the United States abroad. The primary goal of the Secretary of State and the U.S. Department of State is to shape a freer, more secure, and more prosperous world through formulating and implementing the President’s foreign policy, while supporting and protecting American interests abroad.

Note that part about American Interests. The site continues:

It is a source of support for American businesses abroad, working to achieve fair business practices in commerce, trade, manufacturing and other interests—while also identifying viable opportunities for American businesses.

Contributions, either directly, or indirectly to Clinton’s Foundation are more than a “Conflict of Interest”. Since her job description was to specifically protect US interests, any remuneration could be prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917. In the words of Woodrow Wilson:

“There are citizens of the United States, … who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt, to destroy our industries wherever they thought it effective … to strike at them, and to debase our politics to the uses of foreign intrigue 

They have formed plots to destroy property, they have entered into conspiracies against the neutrality of the Government, they have sought to pry into every confidential transaction of the Government in order to serve interests alien to our own.”

Selling State Secrets is the very definition of Espionage. However, don’t expect the Globalists in the media and government to prosecute Hillary Clinton anytime soon… it seems that Treason is below her pay grade.

Romney and Bill Clinton

Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck and Hillary Clinton’s Future American Family

Salt Lake City’s Lesbian Mayor Marries her Lover. The fact that Biskupski is gay was hid from Salt Lake City Voters by the Mitt Romney controlled Utah media until after the election

Mitt Romney IS Bain Capital and Bain Capital owns Clear Channel Communication (Now iHeart Radio). Glenn Beck is the major voice of Romney’s Media Presence. Glenn Beck is Romney’s sock puppet. The voice might be Becks’s, but the message is 100% Mitt Romney.

“Glenn Beck spent most of today’s radio show calling upon Republicans to abandon Donald Trump in the wake of the announcement that the GOP presidential nominee has hired Breitbart’s Steve Bannon to serve as the campaign’s CEO.” (Source)

Romney is also the major political force in the Mormon Church, which explains why the Church owned media like the Deseret News and KSL.com, also cower to Romney’s editorial will.

Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton are bent on destroying the Traditional American Family, and replacing it with a system of dysfunctional replacement parts.

“Since taking office, President Obama and his Administration have made historic strides to expand opportunities and advance equality and justice for all Americans, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Americans. From major legislative achievements to historic court victories to important policy changes, the President has fought to promote the equal rights of all Americans.” (Source)

The only problem is, there is no such thing under the Constitution, which would require such nonsense. The Bill of Rights would literally need to be amended to make marriage a “Right.” That would require the support of vast majority of the people. Which means it would never happen.

Romney and Clinton work through deception. Proclaiming their loyalty for one thing, they stand for another. Mitt Romney is the Father of Gay Marriage:

“When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, — the Goodridge case — Romney unilaterally ordered his agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order him to do this nor had the legislature codified this ruling. Combined with a promise by President Obama to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, this action by Romney will lead to the spread of homosexual marriage nationwide.

Romney’s action was utterly illegal. In four different parts of the Massachusetts Constitution, it is clearly stated that only the legislature can change laws and one section specifically states that the marriage statutes are determined by the legislature, not the courts. Even the Supreme court itself stated that it could not order the legislature to act. All Romney had to do was to declare the court had no authority to enforce its unconstitutional opinion and ignore its decision.

But instead of doing that, Romney abruptly claimed the court opinion was now the law of the land and ordered his Town Clerks and Justices of the Peace to marry homosexuals — even though the legislature never acted to codify the ruling. Indeed, according to a Fox News/AP story, even the attorney for the homosexual plaintiffs in Goodridge, held the view that the legislature would have to codify the Goodridge ruling:” (Source)

Romneyites appear to have blackmailed Mormon Church into a series of compromises that seem to undermine the faith’s strong support for American families:

“With the backing of Mormon church leaders, the Republican-dominated Utah Legislature passed a bill on Wednesday night that would ban discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in housing and employment, while also protecting religious institutions that object to homosexuality.

The legislation, known as “the Utah compromise,” has been hailed by Mormon leaders and gay rights advocates as a breakthrough in balancing rights and religious freedom, and as a model for other conservative states. But leaders of some other churches oppose it, saying it would not sufficiently protect the rights of individuals who have religious objections to homosexuality.” (Source)

In Romneyesque style, the Church was forced into a position of compromise where none was needed. There were no pending discrimination lawsuits or Court Orders in place for such radical action. There were no cries of discrimination from Utah’s homosexual community. Utah is a pretty tolerant place. The move was sold as a pre-emptive strike against some future Bogeyman that might win a Court case.

Romneyites have plenty of leverage with the Mormon Church. Using their Allies in the Clinton State Department they could have shut down the Missionary Program of the Church by holding up Visa’s and Passports. The Church doesn’t need Mitt Romney’s money, so that is a less likely motive.

Like Romney, Glenn Beck is all mom’s apple pie and American flags. He wears his Mormon faith on his sleeve yet refuses to recognize the damage that Romney and Clinton have both done to American families through their radical agendas.

If Hillary Clinton wins, like her European radical allies abroad, she will force US Churches to perform Homosexual Marriages in their sanctuaries, churches, and Temples.  Those that fail to comply will be targeted by the government as hate groups and shut down.

Past behavior is the best indicator of future performance. This election will determine your family’s future and their rights to practice their religion free from Romney and Clinton’s interference.

How Hillary Clinton and Walmart Gutted US Apparel Industry

“At the center of U.S. policy toward China was Hillary Clinton. At this critical time for U.S.- China relations, Bill Clinton gave a number of speeches that were underwritten by the Chinese government and its supporters. These funds were paid to the Clintons’ bank account directly, while Hillary was negotiating with China on behalf of the United States….”

” Bill and Hillary’s foundation has had bank accounts and/or foundation offices in China since at least 2005. Between 2001-2006, Bill Clinton was paid $700,000 for four speeches by Chinese brokerage firm CLSA Asian Markets.” (link)

So What does China get for all that money?

“China is the main source of US apparel imports, producing 36.49% of clothing shipped to the US for sale. The other top nations for clothing imported to the US trail significantly behind China percentage-wise. They are Vietnam (producing 9.4%), Indonesia (7.2%), and Bangladesh (6.7%).” (link)

The US apparel market is worth $225 billion. As the above graph indicates, in 2012, on 2.5% of clothing worn by Americans was made in the United States.

Chinese Tariffs on American made apparel (clothing) ranges from 14-25%. That means that their is a 14-25% tax on American made goods in China. In the United States duties are 0-19%.

So, what is the problem? Our Tariffs don’t reflect the cheaper labor available to US manufacturers in China, or the government subsidies provided by the Chinese.  Chinese apparel workers are paid $1.26 per hour. In the United States the average hourly wage is $12.65.

If Americans don’t want to compete against cheap foreign labor than the tariff (tax) on imports needs to be raised to reflect the wage disparity. In other words, to protect American made goods we need to raise tariffs by a much larger margin.

The only people this would effect would be the gross profits of large retailers like Walmart.  “Alice Walton, the daughter of Sam Walton, the founder of the chain of big box stores, gave Mrs. Clinton’s Democratic National Committee Victory Fund $353,000 in December, a contribution just made public last month. Before that she contributed $25,000 to the Ready for Hillary political action committee.”

Hillary Clinton also sat on Walmart’s Board for 6 years. When Hillary has to choose between donations and workers, the choice is easy. The US worker gets screwed.

Clinton’s Traded $2 Billion for 5 Million U.S. Jobs

“More than 5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs were lost between 1997 and 2014. Most of those job losses were due to growing trade deficits with countries that have negotiated trade and investment deals with the United States.”

20,000 American Jobs were Exported by General Motors AFTER Taxpayers lost 12 Billion Dollars in Bailout

Between 1993 (before NAFTA took effect) and 2013, the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico and Canada increased from $17.0 billion to $177.2 billion, displacing more than 850,000 U.S. jobs. Growing trade deficits and job displacement, especially between the United States and Mexico, were the result of a surge in outsourcing of production by U.S. and other foreign investors. The rise in outsourcing was fueled, in turn, by a surge in foreign direct investment (FDI) into Mexico, which increased by more than 150 percent in the post-NAFTA period.

KORUS took effect in March 2012. Between 2011 and 2014, U.S. exports to Korea increased by about $1 billion, but imports have increased by $13 billion, so the trade deficit has increased by nearly $12 billion. This growing trade deficit with Korea has cost more than 75,000 U.S. jobs.

Then there is China, until now a part of the biggest trade and investment deal of all. In 2000, President Bill Clinton claimed that the agreement then being negotiated to allow China into the World Trade Organization (WTO) would create “a win-win result for both countries.” Exports to China “now support hundreds of thousands of American jobs,” and these figures “can grow substantially with the new access to the Chinese market the WTO agreement creates,” he said.

Between 2001, when China came into the WTO, and 2013 the U.S. trade deficit with China increased $240 billion. These growing trade deficits eliminated 3.2 million U.S. jobs. China became the third largest recipient of FDI in the world, which fueled the growth of thousands of new manufacturing plants that generated exports to the United States and other markets.” (Source)

During that same time period the top .01% grew their wealth by over 400% and Hillary Clinton, along with her husband Bill, grew their foundation from less than 100 million dollars to over 1 billion dollars!

Donations to the Clinton Foundation  included the South Korean energy and chemicals conglomerate Hanwha, which paid $500,000 to $1,000,000 for a speech by Bill Clinton….. China Real Estate Development Corp. paid the foundation between $250,000 and $500,000 for a speech by the former president….China Real Estate Development Corp. paid the foundation between $250,000 and $500,000 for a speech by the former president…

5 million jobs in exchange for $2 billion dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Looks like a good deal for Globalist Billionaires. Not so good for the American People.

NAFTA Cost U.S. 56,190 Factories, Made Hillary Clinton a Billionaire

NAFTA Increased the wealth of the top .01% by 400%!

As the above chart shows, Free Trade has been a huge boon for the wealthiest of the wealthy. Its a disaster for the rest of us.

“In the week before Valentine’s Day, United Technologies expressed its love for its devoted Indiana employees, workers whose labor had kept the corporation profitable, by informing 2,100 of them at two facilities that it was shipping their factories, their jobs, their communities’ resources to Mexico.

Three days later, 1,336 workers at Philadelphia’s largest remaining manufacturer, Cardone, learned that company planned to throw them out too and build brake calipers in Mexico instead. Two weeks earlier, a Grand Rapids, Mich., company called Dematic did the same thing to its 300 workers.

No surprise. In the first decade of this century, America lost 56,190 factories, 15 a day.” (Link)

“The president of Carrier, owned by United Technologies, gathered the Indianapolis factory employees, skilled workers who earn an average of $20 an hour, and informed them that the corporation planned to kick them to the curb but expected them to perform to the highest standards until Carrier opened a new plant in Monterrey, Mexico, where workers will be paid $3 an hour.

Carrier President Chris Nelson told the group, “This was an extremely difficult decision.”

Such difficulties for poor, poor United Technologies! It was making a nice profit at its Indianapolis and Huntington factories. But it was not the big fat profit it could pocket by paying Mexican workers a mere $3 an hour, providing $3 an hour in health or pension benefits, and doing it all in the nation with the longest work weeks among the 36  countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.”

As the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton sought to build on her husband’s NAFTA gains by writing the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

“the TPP would worsen the situation because it would give corporations like United Technologies the option of moving to places like Vietnam where they could pay trafficked workers and child laborers $1 an hour. Or less.

Just like with NAFTA, there’s nothing enforceable in the TPP that would stop the labor abuses. It would facilitate corporations forcing workers from Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Monterrey, Mexico, into competition with 14-year-olds laboring 60-hour-weeks for $1-an-hour in Malaysia.”

No wonder that Hillary Clinton has over 1 billion dollars in her foundation. Screwing over American workers comes with a hefty price-tag, and a great amount of risk.

The Clinton Foundation has actually grown by over 1000% since Obama became president. In 2003, it reported a value of less than 100 million dollars.(Source) Every American should become Secretary of State over Trade Agreements, it seems to be the only place left where you can make a decent buck.

How Hillary Clinton Killed US Manufacturing Jobs

“Donald Trump on Tuesday tied together the policies of President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, in an attack on trade policies.

In a speech near Pittsburgh, Trump said the loss of manufacturing jobs has come due to the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

“It was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA in 1993, and Hillary Clinton who supported it,” according to a text of Trump’s prepared remarks. “It was also Bill Clinton who lobbied for China’s disastrous entry into the World Trade Organization, and Hillary Clinton who backed that terrible agreement.”

Trump also criticized Hillary Clinton as standing by as China “cheated” on its currency and stole intellectual property. She also signed a “job-killing” free-trade deal with South Korea, Trump said.

He further said Clinton would make a “small token change” to the Trans Pacific Partnership and then ram it through approval. Clinton has said she doesn’t support the TPP — which as President Obama’s secretary of state, she helped to negotiate — in its current form.

The Senate has yet to ratify the TPP, though both the House and the Senate passed the fast-track legislation that traditionally presages passage.

Trump says, if elected, he would withdraw the U.S. from the TPP, as well as renegotiate NAFTA. And if he is not able to renegotiate NAFTA, Trump says he’d withdraw from it.”

Trump is Ross Perot on steroids. Hillary is a Bush hybrid, bent on destroying the American Dream in favor of the world’s wealthiest oligarchs. The Clinton Foundation is her political and financial pay-off, with much its wealth coming from those that have plundered these United States.

“Wealth inequality in the US is at near record levels according to a new study by academics. Over the past three decades, the share of household wealth owned by the top 0.1% has increased from 7% to 22%. For the bottom 90% of families, a combination of rising debt, the collapse of the value of their assets during the financial crisis, and stagnant real wages have led to the erosion of wealth.”

Clinton campaigns for the poor, while picking their pockets clean through policies that have exported their jobs to increase corporate profits. Hillary Clinton is playing whats left of the Democratic Party for a sucker.
