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

Why That 4 year Degree in Computers Will Soon be Worthless.

While Hillary and Bill Clinton were busy giving away the United States of America through NAFTA, GATT and China’s most favored Nation Trading Status, Mitt Romney was equally busy filling his pockets at American’s expense.

“Modus Media grew rapidly. In December 1997, it announced it had contracted with Microsoft to produce software and training products at a center in Australia. Modus Media said it was already serving Microsoft from Asian locations in Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan and in Europe and the United States.

Two years later, Modus Media told the SEC it was performing outsource packaging and hardware assembly for IBM, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard Co. and Dell Computer Corp. The filing disclosed that Modus had operations on four continents, including Asian facilities in Singapore, Taiwan, China and South Korea, and European facilities in Ireland and France, and a center in Australia.

“Technology companies, in particular, have increasingly sought to outsource the business processes involved in their supply chains,” the filing said. “. . . We offer a range of services that provide our clients with a one-stop shop for their outsource requirements.”

According to a news release issued by Modus Media in 1997, its expansion of outsourcing services took place in close consultation with Bain. Terry Leahy, Modus’s chairman and chief executive, was quoted in the release as saying he would be “working closely with Bain on strategic expansion.” At the time, three Bain directors sat on the corporate board of Modus.

The global expansion that began while Romney was at Bain continued after he left. In 2000, the firm announced it was opening a new facility in Guadalajara, Mexico, and expanding in China, Malaysia, Taiwan and South Korea.” (Source)

“Job loss occurred in all states and the District of Columbia, but given that the trade deficit in computer and electronic parts sector grew the most – and accounted for 39.6 percent of total job losses – the hardest hit state was California, which lost more than 560,000 jobs. The three hardest-hit congressional districts were all in Silicon Valley and among other cities, included Palo Alto, San Jose and Cupertino.” (Source)

The Globalists, like Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck and Hillary Clinton tell us that Free Trade makes American Businesses more competitive in the global marketplace. In reality, it only enriches .01% of the population at the expense of the 99.9% that buy into the lies.

“In Beijing, IT and internet professionals take the top spot. That category consists of web developers, software engineers, and everything in between. They make a median RMB 9,420 (US$1,515) per month. By comparison, the median salary for a web developer in America is US$4,473, according to compensation information firm PayScale. In San Francisco specifically, the monthly wage jumps to US$6,393.”

So, after Americans spend and average of $50,000 on a 4 year degree in computers, if they want to compete in the global marketplace they must agree to a salary of less than $1515 per month. This would bet them far below poverty levels in the United States.

The estimated value of the World’s entire consumer market is 43 trillion dollars. The United States is $11.4 trillion of that 43 trillion. China is 3.3 trillion, one third the size of the US market. Japan is 2.9 trillion. In other words almost 25% of all the worlds consumer products are sold within the borders of the United States.

We don’t need to compete with the rest of the world in a race to the bottom, in an attempt to build the wealth of 1/10 of 1% of the world’s population. They need to compete with us. Tariffs that are wage based would force the greedy Oligarchs to relocate production back into the United States where it belongs.

Of course, such a move would never happen with a Globalist like Hillary Clinton in the White House, or with naive Americans throwing their votes at Mitt Romney’s third party candidates.

Trump is the ONLY candidate that has identified the problem and expressed a willingness to fix it. As a result, he is now opposed by Globalist Republicans and the Oligarch owned media. We can’t afford to listen to their Siren Song any longer. We must Vote Trump.

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.

Romney and Bill Clinton

Why Trump is a Threat to Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton

Mitt Romney cheated Ron Paul out of the nomination. He won the battle, but lost the war.

“By disenfranchising Ron Paul supporters, Mitt Romney won the primary but lost the election.

New analysis reveals that in no less than five states, Romney’s margin of loss to President Obama in the general election was less than the number of votes received by Ron Paul in that state’s primary.” (Source)

“When Ron Paul went to the Republican National Convention in August, he brought with him the youngest delegation in the history of the Republican Party.

How were they welcomed? When they arrived, their signs were confiscated and torn up before their eyes. The Maine delegation was summarily unseated and sent home because they contained too many Paul supporters. At the last minute, the Rules Committee changed the ballot access requirement from five states to eight states to prevent Ron Paul’s name from being entered into nomination. They even prevented his name from being mentioned from the podium!”

So why is Romney doing the same thing to Trump?

“After Mitt Romney came out against Donald Trump today, comparisons were drawn with the stance his father George Romney took against Barry Goldwater.

There is one fascinating similarity … the Republican elite are terrified of losing control of the party.

In 1964, liberal Republicans were vehemently opposed to Barry Goldwater’s nomination for the presidency and launched a campaign against him, labeling him a crazed extremist. One of those Republicans was George Romney, Mitt’s father.” (Source)

The Republican Establishment and the Democratic Establishment have a common goal. Its called Globalism and its cloaked under the terminology of “Free Trade”. It involves outsourcing American jobs to countries where employment is cheap and corruption runs rampant. It is supported by the massive corporations like General Motors and Walmart, and Globalists like Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney.

Trump has promised to stop Globalism by re-instating trade barriers that would keep American Jobs in the United States. Since the American economy is the largest in the world, we have no reason to let foreign governments into our marketplace for free.

The Council on Foreign Relations is the Globalist think tank tasked with creating a common message for the Globalist owned media. Their website is here.

The CFR writes your National News and is responsible for the articles distributed by Reuters and the Associated Press. This is who really writes your Editorials on TV and in your morning Newspaper. Simply go to their website and see what standardized message gets emailed to your media controllers.

And the CFR doesn’t like Donald Trump. Here are a list of their articles on the Anti-Globalist Trump.

Romney takes his Orders from the Globalists:

Moving forward to this year’s campaign, ABC News released an article on September 12 headlined “Who’s Advising Mitt Romney on Foreign Policy?” that spotlighted Dan Senor, whom it described as “one of Romney’s closest advisers on foreign policy.” The article reported:

Senor led a foreign policy briefing for Ryan on the plane yesterday from Seattle along with Jamie Fly [CFR], executive director, Foreign Policy Initiative and Reuel Marc Gerecht from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

The Foreign Policy Initiative… seeks to promote an active U.S. foreign policy committed to robust support for democratic allies, human rights, a strong American military equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century, and strengthening America’s global economic competitiveness. The organization was founded in 2009 and is led by Executive Director Jamie Fly. FPI’s Board of Directors consists of Eric Edelman, Robert Kagan [CFR], William Kristol, and Dan Senor.

In the words of one Globalist Banker and Monopolist:

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.

Romney and Bill Clinton

Utah’s Mitt Romney Problem is Dangerous to Mormon Church

Utah’s infatuation with Mitt Romney is political suicide. Romney seems committed to undermining the only legally elected Republican Candidate for President. His alleged influence over the Mormon Church owned newspaper, Deseret News, and KSL.com, the state’s most frequented website, is appalling.

Who is the real Mitt Romney?

 

  • “On a questionnaire Planned Parenthood gave to the gubernatorial candidates in 2002, Romney answered ”yes” to the question, ‘Do you support the substance of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade?’ Romney also professed support for state funding of abortion services for low-income women, [Erin] Rowland [spokeswoman for the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts] said.”
    – Boston Globe, 3/25/2005
  • “Marie Sturgis, legislative director of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, said she hasn’t detected any change in Romney’s stance. The group considers Romney to be an abortion-rights supporter, as do national antiabortion groups such as the Family Research Council.”
    – Boston Globe, 3/25/2005 (Source)

Contrast this with the Mormon Church’s official stance on abortion:

“Human life is a sacred gift from God. Elective abortion for personal or social convenience is contrary to the will and the commandments of God. Church members who submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for such abortions may lose their membership in the Church.” (Source)

It gets worse…

    • In February 2005, The American Spectator observed of Romney, “He is pro-choice and, aside from the marriage debate, generally in agreement with gay-rights advocates.”
      – American Spectator, 2/23/2005
    • In March, 2005, Boston’s leading homosexual newspaper, Bay Windows, told its readers that Romney’s pro-gay record belies his new-found “conservatism”:

“Governor Romney has been touring the country in the past few weeks, courting anti-gay right-wingers in South Carolina, Missouri, and Utah with speeches designed to show that he is firmly in their camp. Yet a look at Romney’s record shows that his Rick Santorum drag act is a relatively new phenomenon.
– Bay Windows, 3/3/2005

Both times Romney ran for public office – in 1994 running for US Senate against Ted Kennedy and in 2002 running for Governor of Massachusetts – he sought and received the formal endorsement of the Log Cabin Republican (LCR) Club PAC. This is the same group that in 2004 spent $1 million nationally in key swing states on TV ads that attacked President Bush for supporting a federal Marriage Protection Amendment.

The Mormon Church is one of the last doctrinal bastions for traditional marriage between a man and a woman.

“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints affirms the centrality of doctrines relating to human sexuality and gender as well as the sanctity and significance of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.” (Source)

The Mormon Church would do well to distance itself from Mitt Romney and declare its political independence from the control he and his ilk have over the Utah media.

The LDS Church is likely worth $40 billion today and collects up to $8 billion in tithing each year.

In 2010, Romney and his wife totaled $21.6 million in income and paid slightly more than $3 million in federal income taxes. That also means they paid $2.1 million in tithing to the Mormon Church. A drop in the bucket.

If Donald Trump wins, and the Mormon Church continues its Romney alliance, they stand to lose any influence in a Trump administration. IT could also jeopardize the Church’s goodwill in Washington which it relies on for its Global Missionary Program.

Romney is a bigger threat to the Mormon Church and its objectives than anything else on the planet. He should be ignored, not encouraged. No matter how much money he brings to the table.

He just isn’t worth it Utah.

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.
