The Real

Scuttling Bad Trade Agreements















By Professor Steven Yates
January 9, 2010

As everyone knows, the system nearly collapsed in 2008. The superelite-owned investment banks and other large corporations received bailouts, of course. The Federal Reserve oversaw the creation of over $1 trillion out of thin air to save from collapse corporations deemed “too big to fail.” Elite-paid “economists” refused to grasp the notion that the solution to problems created by spending and debt is not more spending and more debt. Now, the 2000 decade has ended with this country mired in the worst economy since the Great Depression despite the “economists” seeing “green shoots” of recovery that do not exist outside government numbers. Job losses, business closings, foreclosures, and simple abandonments of homes in the real economy have now turned once-thriving, healthy communities into ghost towns. The unemployment rate—the real one which counts “discouraged workers” who have given up, those who have left the labor force to “reinvent themselves” as students, those working part-time but seeking full-time work, etc.—is over 20 percent!

NAFTA’s effects on Mexico have been worse. Mexico has long been more vulnerable than America. Mexican farmers could not compete with American “Agra-Biz,” resulting in a mass exodus of newly unemployed Mexicans. Those able to do so, came here. They crossed our wide-open Southern border by the millions in search of work. Their willingness to work for lower wages than native-born Americans sent still more of the latter to the unemployment lines. Thus our present illegal immigration epidemic, which at its height resulted in almost a tenth of all citizens of Mexico residing here—is also a product of Fabian-permeated trade policy.


“Free trade”—corporatist trade managed by Fabian-permeated governments and corporations working closely together—effectively merges economies, and because since Keynes the idea of an economic system without government oversight has been anathema, “free trade” slowly turns national borders into meaningless lines on maps. It shifts the locus of control to supranational organizations such as the WTO, created in 1995 by the second GATT. It had done this in Europe, where trade agreements made following World War II gradually morphed into the European Union. Small wonder that by the 2000 decade the idea had surfaced that we would soon see the U.S., Canada, and Mexico merge into a North American Union—a natural offspring of NAFTA.

The idea of a North American Community was promoted openly by the CFR in its now-well-known Building a North American Community (2005), less openly by the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) founded in March of that same year, and by Professor Robert Pastor of American University in a earlier book entitled Towards a North American Community (2001). Professor Pastor vigorously denies promoting a North American Union, insisting that his conception of a North American Community respects the sovereignty of the three nations. We should recall Arnold Toynbee’s words, of course, when evaluating Pastor’s denials in light of the precedent set by the formation of the EU which also began with post-WWII trade agreements. And we should note remarks such as the following: “[P]olitical considerations are more important than economic ones. Since the existence of Europe is at stake, integration is more of a political than an economic desideratum. Political integration can be facilitated by economic cooperation, but mere economic union is unthinkable” (R.F. Sandwald and J. Stohler, Economic Integration: Theoretical Assumptions and Consequences of European Integration, 1959, p. 42). There can be no doubt that North American power elites learned from studying the European example.

It very much appears, though, that exposure over the uncensored Internet, and the publication of Jerome R. Corsi’s bestselling The Late Great U.S.A. (2007), have significantly weakened the North American Community effort for the moment, just as exposure forced the elites to set aside their plans for an Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) proposed in 1994 to go into effect in 2005. I can visualize the superelite fuming; they would shut down the uncensored Internet if they could. But too much commerce and communication now depends on it. The uncensored Internet is a liability for them, but not a fatal one. No one really thinks elite-sponsored economic integration has gone away, after all. Under Barack Obama, the SPP is continuing as the North American Leaders Summit. Several universities, including Pastor’s own American University and Arizona State, have programs or institutes devoted to “North American Studies.” Organizations such as the North American Forum on Integration, with which Professor Pastor is also involved, still sponsor annual conferences aimed at students.


And there is every reason to believe that the ongoing decline in the value of the dollar—a product of Federal Reserve / U.S. Treas. Dept. printing presses going full blast—is deliberate. This process was made much easier when President Richard Nixon severed all remaining ties between the dollar and gold in August 1971 and cynically declared, “We are all Keynesians now.” Gold was then $35/oz. Early last month it skirted $1,200/oz., an index of actual dollar devaluation. Attendees at the recent G20 meeting spoke openly of replacing the dollar with a global currency. This sort of move would doom the U.S. by dooming its economy! Given this, there are liberty-loving Americans who are giving up on reversing this madness and out of concern for family members planning their exit strategies, some to Central or South American countries and some elsewhere. The superelite will doubtless try to orchestrate a seamless replacement of the dollar with a global currency. They do not like disruption; it awakens the sleeping sheeple. But they are not all knowing or all powerful. They could lose control. What happens on U.S. soil should we experience a currency collapse with hyperinflation is a matter of speculation; we’re in uncharted territory here, for never before has an economic system as large as that of the U.S. been threatened this way before. Those remaining on U.S. soil may find themselves too busy obtaining food to stand up for U.S. sovereignty.

A number of scenarios speak darkly of an impending breakup of the U.S. under such circumstances. As many know, there are secession movements of various stripes in various parts of the country. Separation may not be the panacea it seems. Such a result would yield weaker nations, all of them struggling with most of their people unprepared for independence. The superelites would doubtless have their assets well protected, and would play former states or regions or populations or ethnic groups against one another, as they have done countless times past. Former Americans would be closer to, not further from, the long term goal shared by the Rothschild-Rockefeller axis and the Fabian Society: world government, always intended to follow the destruction of the United States of America however the latter is accomplished.

The odds are very good that the New International Economic Order will be governed in the manner of China but Westernized: as an oligarchic corporatocracy, collectivized via the educational system and political correctness, that would at last embrace the socialism Fabians originally wanted—except, of course, at the superelite level. If there is any remaining resistance, we can expect the Tasers to come out. Recall H.G. Well’s chilling words from the last installment in this series: “Countless people ... will hate the new world order, be rendered unhappy by frustration of their passions and ambitions through its advent and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to estimate its promise we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”


There is much more to be said about Fabian permeation than space limits permit here. Suffice it to say, Fabian direction has completely reshaped British-American economics. What is essentially now a command economy has, for the first time in history, been able to pass itself off as market-driven—and it is, if you control the markets. Alan Greenspan references the Fabians in The Age of Turbulence (2007), crediting them with having had a “tempering effect” (p. 265) on market capitalism that kept the latter politically palatable. Both Britain’s past prime minister, Tony Blair, and its present one, Gordon Brown, are past presidents of the Fabian Society. Last spring, the latter paid newly anointed President Obama a visit. Obama is a disciple of the Saul Alinsky school of Fabianism and has used Alinsky’s techniques (Rules for Radicals, 1971) very effectively. It is dismaying to have to note that the two dominant forces in American politics right now, the neocons of the Republican Party and the PC-type liberals who backed either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in 2008, are both instruments of Fabian permeation. While appearing to lock horns in mainstream media for public consumption, each has done its part to destroy our Constitution and undermine our national sovereignty. Each is still viewed in partisan terms, although both are controlled by the same entity whose true identity remains almost unknown. Many of those working to make it known are dismissed in the mainstream media and by pseudo-sophisticates who identify with authority as “conspiracy nuts.”

Conclusion. In this series we have spelled out Four Cardinal Errors That Have Almost Ruined Our Republic. Again: (1) We failed to secure full economic independence from Great Britain and especially British bankers. (2) We embraced an educational system set up on principles alien to those of our Founding Fathers. (3) We rejected Christianity and embraced materialism. (4) We failed to recognize Fabian penetration and permeation. The implication of all this is that for America, time has grown very short! Indeed, the likelihood of success in saving the U.S. qua republic—a system founded on morality, limited government, and sound money—is unlikely. I am writing under the assumption that future historians, if there be such, will want to know why the greatest civilization in human history lost its sense of direction and self-destructed.

We may thus note a number of pivotal moments or events: (1) 1791: Alexander Hamilton was allowed over Thomas Jefferson’s explicit objections to create the first Bank of the United States, allowing the bankster class of the day to establish a presence here—which never left; (2) 1840s: the creation of government schools based on an ideology hostile to individuality and freedom; naturally they slowly ceased to produce citizens educated for a free and sovereign republic; (3) 1865: President Abraham Lincoln saved the Union but in so doing established the political supremacy of the federal government over state and local governments, thus paving the way for further economic as well as political centralization; he also opened the door wider to meddling by British bankers; (4) Early 1900s: Americans did not recognize the arrival of Fabian socialist thought when it came to our shores under an assumed name; (5) 1913: President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act, in effect granting superelite control over the U.S. economy through control over its monetary system. (6) 1944: GATT set the precedent as the first globalist trade agreement, as part of the rise of institutions (the UN, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund) that began the migration of power to the global level; (7) 1971: President Richard Nixon severed the dollar’s ties to gold, allowing free reign to Federal Reserve / U.S. Treasury Dept. money creation which allowed the build-up of our present edifice of debt; (8) 1993: NAFTA was passed and went into effect on Jan. 1, 1994. Since that day, America has lost millions of middle class jobs which will probably never return; an equivalent destruction of Mexico’s economy, meanwhile, sent those workers here. The long-term effect may be the dissolving of our Southern border.

Doubtless, those who have followed me to this bitter end are asking that perennial question, What can we do? I have suggested—and I am not being facetious—developing an exit strategy. The beginnings of de facto colonies of American ex-pats already exist in many Central and South American countries. Of course, without guiding principles, efforts by expatriated Americans to form colonies elsewhere will only delay the inevitable arrival of world government and “scientific” totalitarianism to their new doorsteps. Based as it is on unsound economics, the New International Economic Order will eventually collapse. It might take a couple of generations.

What will the result be? The worst depression the world has ever seen! Billions of people will literally starve to death or die fighting each other for food and other resources! What can we do to prevent this kind of world? Begin developing personal goals, social goals, economic systems and a spiritual state, working towards a society that avoids the Four Cardinal Errors. That, of course, is another long story. In a future series, I hope to offer some suggestions. End of series.
