"What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement [NAFTA] but the architecture of a new international system... a first step toward a new world order." Traitor Henry Kissinger, member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilaterialist, July 18, 1993, LA Times
The pathological liar illegally occupying the White House put on political theater last night for the State of the Union address. Same old lies, just a different occasion. Usurper, Obama/Soetoro/Dunham or whatever his real name might be, read words written by someone else and meaningless in creating American jobs:
"Many people watching tonight can probably remember a time when finding a good job meant showing up at a nearby factory or a business downtown. You didn't always need a degree, and your competition was pretty much limited to your neighbors. If you worked hard, chances are you'd have a job for life, with a decent paycheck and good benefits and the occasional promotion. Maybe you'd even have the pride of seeing your kids work at the same company.
"That world has changed. And for many, the change has been painful. I've seen it in the shuttered windows of once booming factories, and the vacant storefronts on once busy Main Streets. I've heard it in the frustrations of Americans who've seen their paychecks dwindle or their jobs disappear -– proud men and women who feel like the rules have been changed in the middle of the game.
"They're right. The rules have changed. In a single generation, revolutions in technology have transformed the way we live, work and do business. Steel mills that once needed 1,000 workers can now do the same work with 100. Today, just about any company can set up shop, hire workers, and sell their products wherever there's an Internet connection. Meanwhile, nations like China and India realized that with some changes of their own, they could compete in this new world."
The Republicans also talk out of both sides of their mouths about creating jobs. As you read this column, please remember that a whopping 82% of incumbents were allegedly reelected in November 2010. The American people, drowning in Congressionally created debt, massive foreclosures and no jobs, were so happy with the Outlaw Congress, they voted back 82% of the same people who destroyed America's three critical job sectors - manufacturing, industrial and agriculture through "free" trade treaties. It is NOT the job of the General Government to create jobs. It is the private sector which creates jobs that actually produce something and now hanging in shreds thanks to the Outlaw Congress over the past two decades.
How conservatives rejoiced when Republicans took control of the house. Yes, it's a good thing Marxist Nancy Pelosi is no longer Speaker of the House, but she's still there. However, one of the most anti-American jobs house member is now Speaker of the House, John Boehner [R-OH]. His votes over 21 years in Congress have helped destroy nearly 8 MILLION good paying jobs and now he has the same power as Pelosi to kill bills he doesn't want brought to the floor.
Boehner voted for NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT/WTO. In 2000 he voted against getting the U.S. out of the WTO. Boehner has voted for every single unconstitutional trade treaty since NAFTA. John Boehner and his corrupt colleagues in Congress have supported the destruction of millions of American jobs under Bill Clinton, Bush, Jr. and now the Red camped out in the People's House.
Too many Americans either know nothing about the above treaties or they are tragically ignorant in understanding what has killed off a once prosperous, independent, self sufficient nation. After the the unconstitutional NAFTA "agreement" was signed into "law," which sucked hundreds of thousands of jobs out of this county to an invading country to the south, I read, The Pooring of America: Competition & The Myth of Free Trade by Dr. Ravi Batra. You should, too. Millions of us screamed against NAFTA, but we were sold down the river by Newt Gingrich and his global cronies in Congress. Instead of learning why our nation has been destroyed through "free" trade, football stadiums remain packed, millions of Americans are tuned into Rush Limbaugh who vocally supported the job killing NAFTA and sell out lobbying groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who fully supported NAFTA and the destruction of American jobs.
Americans who have lost their jobs continue to support the same rotten professional politicians in Congress who destroyed them either through crippling legislation or more "free" trade treaties. Ohio was hard hit by NAFTA and GATT, yet the people of Boehner's district keep voting him back into office election after election after election. Anyone paying attention could see that within the first couple of years after those unconstitutional treaties were passed, American jobs were being shipped to communist countries like China faster than a lightning strike. Where are the jobs? Ask your illegally seated U.S. Senator and congress critter.
Boehner is such a hypocrite: "House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said House members "raised our strong, ongoing concerns with reports of human rights violations in China, including the denial of religious freedom and the use of coercive abortion" as a result of China's one-child policy." You think hard core communist, Chinese President Hu Jintao, remotely cares what Boehner thinks about their deplorable human rights violations? Jintao laughs all the way to the bank because when the Republicans had control of both houses of Congress they spent money like water flowing over Niagara Falls and a huge chunk of that debt is now held by Jintao's government. They've got your stones in a vice grip, Johnny, boy.
What did the Republicans who controlled Congress from Jan. 1995 - Jan. 2007, do about MILLIONS and MILLIONS of U.S. jobs being shipped offshore? They voted for more job destroying treaties. There is another book Americans should read instead of fawning all over a dangerous mouthpiece like Michelle Bachmann at some political rally: America's Projectionist Takeoff 1815-1914 - The Neglected American School of Political Economy. It is a well presented historical look at what made America prosperous.
I also recommend reading a fairly new book titled, Free Trade Doesn't Work by Ian Fletcher, Adjunct Fellow at the San Francisco office of the U.S. Business and Industry Council. On page 69 of his book he quotes Jeffrey Immelt:
"I believe that a popular, 30 year notion that the U.S. can evolve from being a technology and manufacturing leader to a service leader is just wrong. In the end, this philosophy transformed the financial services industry from one that supported commerce to a complex trading market that operated outside the economy. Real engineering was traded for financial engineering."
Immelt argued that the U.S. should aim for manufacturing jobs to comprise at least 20% of all jobs. Buttkiss. Prior to NAFTA, CAFTA and GATT, our nation produced just about 100% of everything we used. Our factories provided good paying jobs for decades to an individual who worked hard. Look at where we are today --- exactly where people like me said we would be back in 1994: MILLIONS of American textile jobs are now employing millions in India, commie China, commie Hong Kong and other countries while Americans stand in unemployment lines and 45 MILLION are on food stamps. Our steel factories are gone while Americans push around paper for foreign countries.
Immelt is a thief because he took money Congress stole from the American people in the form of the illegal "stimulus" free for all:
From American Spectator: "On February 17th of that year, Obama had signed the stimulus bill, which included $24.9 million in grants that would flow directly to GE, with roughly $20 billion more slated for health care record modernization of the kind that GE specializes in — “with a direct request to do so from GE’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt.” Earlier this month, the Narcissist in Chief picked Immelt to lead a new jobs council. Since both of them are globalists, I'm sure they will work hard to continue screwing Americans. Fletcher begins The End Game on Trade beginning on page 264.
The Democrats - with the exception of a handful - are also anti-American jobs and you better believe it. Last year, H.R. 4759 - a bill to get the US out of NAFTA and bring home hundreds of thousands of jobs for Americans died. It was supported by a grand total of 30 Democrats and one Republican, Ron Paul. The Democrats who had power until 26 days ago for three years did NOTHING to get the US out of those illegal and destructive treaties. Quite frankly, I was shocked to see Ron Paul support H.R. 4759 because he is a free trader, a position of his I have always opposed. I guess Ron Paul finally came to the conclusion that free trade is POISON for our nation.
H.R. 4759 was supported by the Teamsters and other unions. It was not supported by those "we care about American workers" like Nancy Pelosi or Hooter Harry Reid. The prostitute mainstream media and cable talk hosts like shallow Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and even progressives (socialists/communists) on MSNBC and CNN ignored that bill. All major unions and organizations that allegedly support American workers and jobs should have marched on Washington, DC by the hundreds of thousands until that bill got passed.
Why do you suppose the buzzards in Congress refuse to get us out of NAFTA, CAFTA and GATT? My belief is because the barbarian communist Chinese government holds a TON of U.S. debt. In order for the now reformed 'anti-big government spending' Congress to continue borrowing to spend, do you think they will cross communist China and risk a trade war or worse - China refusing to buy anymore of the massive debt Boehner, Pelosi and all those reelected incumbents have run up over the decades?
Instead, we now have back to back Speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives who have and continue to sell out the American worker in favor of cheap labor, cheap crap and keeping millions employed in foreign countries.

Newly signed agreements with India and China allegedly are going to "support" 250,000 jobs here in the United States. Another finalized trade agreement with South Korea will allegedly "support" 70,000 American jobs. Support? Bull manure. Those manufacturing jobs, whether textile or technology, were once American based. It's nice of India, China and now South Korea to throw American workers a few crumbs.
Let me tell it you straight up: Unless and until the U.S. gets out of NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT/WTO and all subsequent "free" trade agreements and treaties, there will be no "job creation"; no return to boosting manufacturing, industrial and agriculture. Nothing but more unemployment or two fast food jobs per college graduate. In my recent column, True state of the economy - You better be darn scared, I ask a number of questions. Not because I didn't know the answer, but because they are questions that should be shoved in the face (metaphorically speaking) of every member of Congress. We cannot and will not survive as a service based economy. We MUST bring home those millions of jobs to America. It will NOT happen until the American people raise their voices so loud, it's deafening.
The Outlaw Congress must stop importing 150,000 foreign workers every month to take jobs that belong to Americans. Where is your voice America as you lay in bed at night scared to death about how you're going to keep a roof over your family's head and food on the table while those rotten millionaires in Congress continue bringing in foreign workers?
Forget email. Write a short non threatening letter to your congress critter and counterfeit U.S. Senator and tell them that 2012 WILL be the last term for them unless the U.S. gets the hell out of all those job destroying treaties. Protectionism is a bad thing? Oh, it's better that millions of manufacturing and industrial jobs are now held by foreign workers instead of Americans.
And, here's a big fat fact for retailers: With the exception of this computer, I have been boycotting any products made in commie China and other foreign countries for the past 15 years. I will NOT be part of selling out my own country. When I need things like bathroom or kitchen towels, dishes, jeans, tee shirts or whatever, I used the Made in America section on my web site to find what I need by American companies employing Americans. Dell, Microsoft and all the rest are NOT American companies. The CEO of Motorola, Greg Brown was on Neil Cavuto about a month ago crowing about the new "free" trade agreement with Singapore. SHAME on you, Greg Brown, for selling out American workers who desperately need jobs. I wouldn't buy anything made by Motorola for all the tea in Singapore.
Where are the unions? It's not enough to just say you support getting us out of those treaties. Organize and crush your house member and senator with phone calls and letters demanding they get us out of those treaties. Otherwise, you'll find yourself out of work just like non union Americans. This isn't a political issue. It's not a Democrat vs Republican issue. It's an American issue and with a sickening twenty-five million six hundred ninety four thousand six hundred seventy eight thousand Americans out of work.
Going hand in hand with the treaties are the 11.5 MILLION jobs being held by illegal aliens. Instead of sending Israel $3 BILLION BORROWED dollars in illegal foreign aid this year and $9 BILLION BORROWED dollars to Pakistan in violation of the U.S. Constitution, those financial resources should be going to rounding up and deporting every illegal alien possible. I repeat myself, but I am sick of people reelecting the same career politicians who did NOTHING for the past two decades to stop the invasion on our southern border. Well, we're now paying the price - or I should say perhaps you are if you lost your job to a thief (illegal alien). SHAME on any employer in this country who hires illegal aliens.
Yesterday I was at our local grocery store. Two carts in front of me. The first female, about 50 pounds overweight, had three small children. She spoke no English, but she used food stamps to pay the $160. bill. Her friend in the cart right in front of me was also at least 75 pounds overweight with four small children. She also used food stamps and spoke no English. Her tab to working Americans who pay taxes was $134.00. Both were Hispanic and I have no doubt they're illegal aliens. And, no, that's not a racist statement because the single largest number of criminals who sneak across our border are from Mexico. I don't make up the numbers, they are what they are.
Members of Congress go home every weekend with some exceptions. Here is the schedule pages for the house and senate. Call your local district office for your house critter and senator. Find out when they will be in your district and organize. Get 5,000 people to every function while they are in your area and demand they get us out of those treaties now. Fair trade works and yes, I do buy some foreign products from only select countries. I just purchased a skin product I wanted from New Zealand. I am not against trade, but I am against the destruction of American jobs -- especially when they are shipped to a brutal dictatorship like communist China.
If you are a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, I hope you will cancel that membership and that goes for state chapters who have supported all those destructive treaties. Why would you belong to an organization that works towards killing American jobs?
Please join with me and boycott foreign products as I have done since NAFTA was signed into law, December 1993 by traitor, Bill Clinton. You can find Made in America. The more we buy from American companies who hire and manufacture here, the more competitive their products will become. For heaven's sake, if we don't support our own job bases why cry when jobs dry up and are shipped overseas? Here are companies that have crapped on American workers.
SHAME on Massachusetts for selling out your own people by giving their tax dollars to destroy jobs:
"Solar Panel Maker Moves Work to China - January 15, 2011. "Aided by at least $43 million in assistance from the government of Massachusetts and an innovative solar energy technology, Evergreen Solar emerged in the last three years as the third-largest maker of solar panels in the United States. But now the company is closing its main American factory, laying off the 800 workers by the end of March and shifting production to a joint venture with a Chinese company in central China."
There can be no economic recovery until we bring home those millions and millions of jobs AND we must get out of the illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our troops home now. Not in 2012 or 2013 or 2020. Now. The U.S. government is broke and yet you, me, our children and grand children continue to be heaped with more than $10 BILLION BORROWED dollars every month in debt for those sickening bogus wars on terror and illegal nation building.
When is enough going to be enough, America? How bad do you want to return America to a fully functioning, producing nation of employed Americans? Enough to take the time to write a snail mail letter to your member of Congress and make follow up calls every few days to their office out in DC with the message? Enough to organize and make this issue up front while they're at home in their district offices?
How many more jobs will we hemorrhage before Americans rise up and tell Congress what has to be done and refuse to take no for an answer?
"The Korea Free Trade Agreement is a terrible idea. America's past trade agreements, from NAFTA on down, have produced larger deficits for the U. S. not smaller ones. These agreements are really offshoring agreements designed to make it easier for American corporations to produce abroad for the American market. As long as America persists in trying to play by free-trade rules (honored only on paper) while foreign nations play the 400-year old game of mercantilism, this will remain true. The administration is setting itself up for a huge embarrassment when the results of this initiative become visible a few years from now." Ian Fletcher, author of Free Trade Doesn't Work
Gerald Celente, president of Trends Journal, who, just like Dr. Edwin Vieira, predicted the banking collapse long before it happened, agrees: "The only way to avoid the coming disaster is do what we did coming out of the Great Depression - start manufacturing quality goods the world wants. "You can't print your way out of this," he argues." The usurper belched last night in his big speech about transportation and infrastructure - spend more debt. It didn't work before and it won't work now: Transportation bill: More financial bondage

All the political gas coming from Obama/Soetoro, career politicians in the Outlaw Congress, special interest groups or columns on the Internet isn't going to bring home jobs - only direct and massive action by we the people. If you think 2010 was bad, the situation already dire for tens of millions of Americans, is going to accelerate this year in the wrong direction. Getting us out of those treaties must happen or our nation will become little more than errand boys and girls for foreign countries - most of them our enemies unless the Outlaw Congress continues to feed them OUR money via illegal foreign aid and "free" trade agreements.
