Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal Framed To Destroy Thousands of UAW Jobs…

The TPP Trade Deal is looming closer to becoming a finalized reality.  Current negotiations center around Auto Manufacturing, and Japanese negotiators have constructed an outline that would devastate what remains of the U.S. Auto industry.

Unfortunately the K-Street lobbyists, funded by Wall Street through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, have already greased the legislative skids to all but guarantee the elimination of thousands of jobs. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue gave Senators $18 million in bribe money to insure passage.

The TPP deal encompasses approximately 40% of total global manufacturing.  Trillions of dollars are at stake.

TPP is fully supported by the Obama Administration and the legislative passage of a deal was essentially finalized, through manipulation, by changing the senatorial approvals to a mere 51 votes (Fast Track Trade Authority).

Backstabbing Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and many others joined with Mitch McConnell and his merry band of usurpers to change the statutory approval threshold in this regard.  The bill passed 60-38

Current TPP negotiations underway in Atlanta, specifically around auto-manufacturing, showcase just how devastating this Trade deal is going to be:

[…]  The bilateral deal between the United States and Japan would include a first-of-its-kind dispute resolution mechanism that would impose penalties if Japan were judged to have fallen short of its commitments, the second person said.

At the same time, Japan’s auto manufacturers would be given clearance to buy more parts for cars manufactured in North America without paying trade tariffs under the terms of the deal being discussed.

The North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico mandates that vehicles have a local content of 62.5 percent. The way that rule is implemented means that just over half of a vehicle needs to be manufactured locally.

The set of rules under discussion in Atlanta would bring that to 45 percent, or about 55 percent under a separate calculation used by Japan’s auto industry and regulators, people with knowledge of discussions have told Reuters.  (link)

What is currently being constructed resembles negotiations of who gets the remaining parts of a hollowed carcass, the U.S.A.   Foreign companies can build their autos in North America, including the U.S. and Mexico by importing most of their parts from their home countries.

This means – in addition to renegotiating the lowering of tariffs on the direct import of assembled vehicles – Japan can build an assembly plant in Mexico, hire low wage Mexican workers, use most of their own ‘made-in-japan’ parts to assemble a vehicle – then sell the final product in the U.S. (North American market).

How does this benefit the U.S. worker or U.S. economy?   Short answer, it doesn’t.  We become the financial host to an economic parasite feeding on us and exporting our money to fund their economy, not ours.

In addition, this positions TPP to usurp the previous NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement ) which was bad enough by itself.

Yes, there is a particular irony in these now increasingly evident realities given the recent protestations by CBS’s Scott Pelley toward Donald Trump:

The Republican presidential candidate calls NAFTA a disaster he will either break or renegotiate if he’s elected president. Watch Scott Pelley’s interview with Trump on Sunday, September 27

Donald Trump, yet again, proven correct in the absolute need to get “fair trade” negotiations, not “free trade“; and also proven correct in the construct of how NAFTA is out-dated by the current TPP deal underway in Atlanta Georgia.

If ever there was a time when an entire nation needed a negotiator like Donald Trump making decisions on our behalf…

….. That time is NOW !!

    Sad to say this but the UAW supported Obama. Lie down with dogs…
    Praying these men and women don’t lose their jobs. How will they support their families? Unemployment, which is estimated to really be about 42.5% according to David Stockman, will go even higher. This article linked below by Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, says it’s worse. Less people working to support those who no longer have jobs. Thanks for nothing, DC.

We need a strategy that deals deals specifically with those wrongdoers while protecting the righteous.

              Angie — during World War I, an American diplomat in Bucharest reported that Jewish Romanians were accused of being German sympathizers and being hurt for their association with Germany. This occurred because (a) at that time, Imperial Russia was the pogram-instituting persecutor of Jewish people who were doing very well in Germany as leaders in industry and professional occupations, and (b) Yiddish is a Germanic language variant very close to other German dialects, so the Imperial German government had instituted outreach to Jewish communities to entice their support.

              The history is seldom taught this way, but if you scour the old books a story of conflicted and shifting alliances comes out. The Yiddish Press in New York City caught hell during World War I from George Creel’s Committee on Public information because they tended to support the Central Powers.

              By the late 1930s of course, everything had turned 180 degrees and Germany was attacking their Jewish population under incitement from a dictatorship.

              Back to your post — older Romanians who weren’t politically involved would not have caught up with the 180-degree shift out of Germany, and would not have believed it until it was too late.

As historian Joseph Rappaport claimed through his study of Yiddish press during the war, “The pro-Germanism of America’s immigrant Jews was an inevitable consequence of their Russophobia”.[49] The Balfour Declaration of 1917, in which the British government promised to help establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine, as well as the fall of the tsarist regime in 1917 and Wilson’s promise of self-determination, helped swing Jewish-Americans into the pro-Allied camp.”

      This one act was proof positive Cruz is not who he is packaged as and IF Trump picks him for VP it will reveal Trump is not who we think he is, either. Cruz sold America out because he did not read something he put his name to. Someone said it said something and he said OK let me sign. His staff told him he was being lied to but guess what, Teddy? Whether he lied is not the problem. The prob is you put your name to something, as a representative of others, without reading.

      Actually Trump simply cannot select ANY candidate to be his running mate because they are everything he campaigned against in that they are beholden to their donors and Trump will never ever be able to trust them. And neither would the American people. Ted IS a politician WITH some pretty big and powerful policy manipulaters backing him and will undermine Donald for them if his VP His intentions may be good and the heart behind those intentions sincere, but when tested he stood with the wrong side. AND tried to cover it with blaming that he was lied to.

      Problem is Ted uses pained facial expressions which subconsciously, whether he intends it to or not, taps the inner nuture of women and the “mommy or spouse believing Little Jonny or Dear Husband didn’t really mean to do wrong or lie or cheat.” Far fetched? Maybe. Maybe I am just tired of his pained expressions that remind me of a little boy while getting yelled at by Mom.

      Really not prepared to have to figure out what to do IF he ends up being picked by Donald as VP.

I think it will be someone he hand picks..that shares his belief on the direction of the country. I think he is just being amicable to Cruz as a matter of two men making an agreement to not attack.. of course we all know Trump only attacks when being attacked..counter punch. I have always know who Cruz is and of course everyone knows who Rubio is, without a doubt and Fiorina..wants to have all out war with Russia..what an idiot she is. No Trump will not pick any of them.. I feel very confident of that. Cruz intentions are not good..wrong..they have never been good. He is a proponent of the NAU..guarantee you. He didn’t protest enough to his wife’s involvement in the CFR and the position she held there..Third down from the top in recognition of the architecture for the NAU or as the put it nicely..North American Community. His money connections are also proof that he is not what he portrays himself to be.. Rand Paul should be coming out against him instead of Trump..but I guess he wanted to lose.

        What is ironic is that Cruz is an order of magnitude more conservative than Trump. While Trump might make a passable GOP president, he won’t govern conservatively if his current stated positions on tariffs, taxes, and health care are any indication.

        I’ll vote for Trump if we’re stuck with him but Cruz is currently the candidate with the best CR rating of any of the bunch.

            So you would vote against a guy because he is sanctimonious? Hmm, interesting metric there.

            Cruz is a conservative super-star, probably the best we have ever seen running for president since RR and probably has a better record than Reagan. Reagan was my first vote for a President and I was very proud to do so but we all know that he was far from perfect and yes, he actually had a tinge of good natured sanctimony himself. Probably more humor than Cruz but then, Reagan had celebrity chops while Cruz is a movement conservative lawyer.

            I don’t particularly understand all his reasoning for his trade vote but in the end, he voted correctly. And I believe his explanation because I have seen his character. He is the only one in the Senate to routinely put his career on the line for the betterment of the country.

            Likewise, Trump is now stepping up when he could have stayed a simple crony capitalist but he seems to have put that behind him and is now saying the right things. But Cruz is not just SAYING the right things but 96% of the time is DOING the right things.

            Yes, he does have the 4% imperfection that people here don’t like but please, let’s not further the purist meme that so many lay at our feet. It doesn’t make sense.

And he may not get what he wants and will have to go along with a number of things, unless he violates the Constitution (much like the current enemy in the WH). Plus, Cruz is one of 100, with limited support, and therefore, limited power. The hope I have is that whomever is elected, will untransform the country (or at least start).

        He didn’t say he was “tricked”. He said he was promised something that he had to accept on its face. He was lied to, something that traditionally, a majority leader of your same party would never do. So Cruz had to accept McConnell’s word as a matter of course. The Senate runs on assurances from one Senator to another. That’s the whole point. McDonnell is an evil man and Cruz knows this, but he never expected him to lie to his face. Normally the majority leader in another time would have said to Cruz, “sorry, I can’t give you what you want in return for your vote but you’d better vote my way anyway”.

        The fact that Cruz has been on a rampage against McConnell since then proves to me that he did not take kindly to being lied to and in fact, Cruz is the one who is doing the most to awaken people to the duplicitousness of the majority leader.

        Even better yet, Cruz has shown what a snake Rand Paul is. That in itself is worth the price of admission.

          • Truth is, he voted against TPA the 2nd time around, not because of McConnells’ deal with the Dems, but because he got so much heat from grassroots conservatives over his initial support of TPA. The 2nd vote on TPA, where Cruz voted against it, had nothing to do with McConnells deal to bring up a vote on Ex/Im bank reauthorization. The Ex/Im Reauthorization was attached to completely separate bill and it was voted down. This deal McConnell made with Dems to get their support for TPA was done in the open, well before Cruz initially voted for TPA. It was public knowledge, anyone can google and see the media was talking about this deal before the first vote came up. Cruz even went to the airwaves to defend his vote, and call Jeff Sessions wrong for his criticism over TPA and TPP. For some reason, Cruz likes TPA. He even went as far as to write an op-ed with Paul Ryan in the Wall Street Journal promoting TPA. Since they knew the bill would pass the 2nd time around, Cruz was afforded the political cover to vote against it and be once again embraced by grassroots tea partiers.

He will be revealed and his grandstanding showmanship will be out there for everyone to see. I have seen this for way too long..as I researched and connected the dots..follow the money..it is pretty plain and his wife..well she is his wife and she doesn’t mind working for the enemy in the name of the CFR. So what.??.we lose our sovereignty..but she was just a small player in this. Third down from the top in recognition of the group that Cruz called the pit of vipers, So he considers his wife being a member and working on the architecture for the NAU..ok..but he calls it a pit of vipers..connect the dots folks.

      mazziflol, understand the sentiment; but, Ted has apologized for making that error. Said his staff advised him not to vote, that TurtleHead was making a deal with Ted that Ted would lose, in order for TurtleHead to get his vote. This is what prompted Ted’s one hr. speech on the Senate floor where he called TurtleHead a liar.

      I support Trump, but I want Ted Cruz in there somewhere. Trump is going to need a fighter in the Senate. I want Ted to challenge TurtleHead next congress for Majority Leader. After the primary, when Trump wins, I will start to work on the votes Ted will need to get his fellow senators to vote for him. TurtleHead and the RINO’s have worked very hard to isolate and ridicule Cruz.

      There was only one other vote that concerned me with Ted, something inconsequential.
      If that’s his only mistake, then Ted’s batting quite well!!! Maybe POTUS is not for him, but I refuse to write him off.

We will end up with two classes the lower class mainly living on government subsidies and low paying part time jobs and an upper class of professionals and government workers.

Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us—truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.”

        “Within a few short years, following implementation of the TPP, which will surely grow from the 40% of the world’s population that it will soon control as it will eventually encompass 100% of the planet. The TPP will eliminate all nation states as the ruling authority and it will be supplanted by corporate authority. This will be made possible because of an obscure provision of the TPP known as the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS). ISDS is a key component of the TPP. Unfortunately, for the planet, ISDS principles are being negotiated as I write these words, outside of the TPP, in ongoing trade deals between the United States and the European Union. ISDS allows corporations to sue governments, for any government action (at any level, including local government level) which hinders a corporation’s future profits. Literally, Monsanto could provably be poisoning the entire population of a nation and the nation could do nothing which might result in the loss of profits to Monsanto. This also means that as a private citizen, if you organize a boycott against Monsanto, you could be sued in a foreign court for obstructing Monsanto profits.

        If a corporation feels that a government has impeded its ability to maximize profits, a suit is filed, outside the country being sued, and the case will be heard by an arbitration panel of trade lawyers, in a jurisdiction totally of the corporation’s choosing. Under ISDS, the dispute panel may only consider the ‘free trade’ values of the case. No other factors may be considered when deciding the case. This means that these corporate panels must disregard values of public health, civil liberties, environmental protection, or the rights of workers (e.g. working conditions) or any other Constitutionally protected liberties.”

      “Our laws support freedom and this is exactly what people that sell their vote for a government dole are giving up.”

      You’re exactly right. Many of the folks who vote democrat don’t like freedom, really. They’re scared of freedom. They have been brainwashed from a young age to find it ‘scary’ to have all that responsibility for one’s own actions; by adulthood they reject the concept out of hand. They reject responsibility for themselves; their children; or their communities–and all suffer for it. These folks have been well-trained to be constant “recipients”. They NEED to be nurtured; to be led by the nose, and to be taken care of, “cradle-to-grave”, by big government. (Hence all the able-bodied welfare recipients out there.)

      The crass democrat politician, on the other hand, craves power. Doling out goodies to those who seek to be cared for makes it a perfect relationship: the politicians keep ladling out “just enough” to make these poor, misguided souls placid enough to continue accepting the dregs they are given. In return, the crass politicians reap the votes and remain in power in perpetuity, smug in the knowledge that they are “popular” politicians. (Turn off the spigot, however, and the politicians would be shocked to see how quickly their “professionally needy” constituency turns on them. That’s why the democrat politicians ALWAYS push for more welfare.)

      It’s a never-ending circle of dependency; the politician depends upon the lemming; and the lemming depends upon the politician. It’s an automatic, self-propelled, self-licking despair-flavored ice-cream cone.

      “The fast track authority being granted to Obama and his successor for the next six years applies to whatever type of trade negotiation Obama chooses to enter into.

      So, if he can write the UN Arms Trade Treaty into a trade agreement, then it can’t be filibustered or amended or prevented from consideration.

      Lori Wallach, of Public Citizen, says the (TPP) agreement strengthens investor provisions, allowing a whole set of new disputes to be removed from the U.S. courts and remanded to international tribunals run by corporate trade attorneys.

      Some of these include natural resource concessions from the federal government, contracts to run utilities (public-private partnerships), and procurement contracts relating to infrastructure construction. In order words, if a government entity wanted to prioritize awarding a government contract to a local firm, the TPP would allow foreign firms to challenge this as a TPP violation. And the challenge wouldn’t be in an American court, it would be held in an international tribunal.

      There are also concerns that the TPP would undermine access to HIV drugs and other essential medicines in countries that sign the agreement. A spokesperson for Doctors Without Borders even claimed, Bush was better than Obama on this. The ACLU claims that the copyright provisions in the TPP are “the biggest threat to free speech you’ve never heard of.” A former White House staffer told me that the USTR is simply working for the copyright industry to get legislative changes through trade agreements it couldn’t get when the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was stopped through coordinated Internet organizing (including the temporary shutdown of Wikipedia).
      ….
      …there are three arguments that this is an important agreement. One, unlike earlier trade agreements, the TPP would include a “docking” arrangement whereby other countries can simply join the free trade zone it sets up. This means that, rather than negotiating new agreements with different countries bilaterally, countries might simply join the Trans-Pacific Partnership. As Thea Lee of the AFL-CIO told me, the TPP could be the last trade agreement the U.S. negotiates. From now on, other countries can just join….

      What are the larger concerns about the TPP?

      There are two major concerns about agreements like this. One is that these agreements continue a transition from a democratic system toward one in which the rights of foreign corporations can trump laws passed by legislative bodies. As Lee put it, “‘Every time you have a new trade agreement you expand the number of companies who can challenge American laws.'”

I thought we wanted to bring people INTO the “kingdom of God”. Since when does a Christian have to pass “the Cruz test”? It reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials whereby well-meaning Christians convicted innocent people. Christians are far more humble with their faith and certainly understand “pride goeth before a fall”. Cruz has the appeal of Jimmy Swaggert.

McDaniel, the Tea Party-backed candidate was not a great candidate (sorry) but received the most votes in the primary. In the run-off, that 240K paid for robo-calling of Dem’s and swung the election by about 30K votes. Barbour was in charge. His son went to work for Walker and is now in Texas working for Bush. They will win by any means possible. I kind of wish they were on our side. Bevin was similarly handled in KY in the primary run against McConnell. Cruz was the Co-Chair of he committee that funded those efforts.
            If Cruz is so conservative and wants to position himself as a leader, why did he not advocate for other strong conservatives/Tea Party type, to be elected? He did not. He remained as Chair until December of 2014, after all elections.
            Strike #3. So much info on Heidi Cruz and Council on Foreign Relations and North American Community – just google it.
            Strike #4. It won’t let me post the link but NY Times, October 23, 2013. Here is the quote: “On the night of her husband’s 21-hour speech on the president’s health care plan, she was out of town for work. (Though Mrs. Cruz says she is home most nights, the couple have a live-in nanny). But when Mr. Cruz’s chief of staff called and asked if she had any suggestions for a bedtime story he could read to their girls — Caroline, 5, and Catherine, 2 — from the Senate floor, she suggested “Green Eggs and Ham,” knowing it was her husband’s favorite.”
            #5. True.
            #6. Reference many articles published here and from others detailing Cruz finances. Barton runs the Cruz PAC and is also the Chair of Mercury One Charities (Glen Beck’s). This is the same Barton PAC that donated 500K to Fiorina and is now under investigation by the FEC.
            #7. Look what happened with the Highway Bill. Already marked up and ready for vote and Cruz wanted to stop the whole thing. Sure, we wanted Kate’s Law but it’s about procedure. There is a time and place to make a stand and he violates it. Could not get a second on the PP vote.
            #8. True.
            #9. Personal.

          Guys, I am married to a trial lawyer who was in private practice and made a payroll for 23 years. I am also a small business person, who was formerly a partner in a brokerage firm and covered Central and South America. When I think about the various business boards I sat on— and then read the 70+ pdf file on the North American Community, it make me shudder. I urge you to read it. I doubt any of us would think it was in America’s best interest. The link is within this article, scroll down and open “Building a North American Community” http://www.dcclothesline.com/2015/04/04/can-you-handle-the-truth-ted-heidi-cruz-and-the-north-american-union/
          Cruz was, at one point, a partner in a very large Houston law firm for 5 years (according to his wesite). That’s nothing like running your own shop guys. Come on. Other than that, Cruz has worked in government.

    I note several Treepers have alluded to Cruz being Trumps runningmate; do we really think that is likely? I don’t see this pairing at all and don’t know that it would be that helpful for Trump. The Prez and Vice Prez do work together on many things, and I don’t see being VP in a Trump administration as best use for Ted Cruz. Nor do I think Cruz brings that much to the table for the vote. Atty General better spot for Ted. I’m not even sure a Trump/Carson ticket would be that great other than the obvious attraction for minority voters. Definitely a place for Carson in admin also, but not necessarily VP. I’d like Trump to select a runningmate who is not even on our radar right now as a politician. What do we know about Alan West? I’ve been impressed with him.

      Jeff Sessions might be an interesting pick.

      What I am afraid of is that Trump will make a deal with the GOPe
      and pick one of their approved VP candidates in the interest of
      being pragmatic about moving forward in the general.

      I only state this because of Reagan choosing the first Bush;
      an unintended consequence being 8 years of the second Bush
      and now the third Bush running. A decades long war, trillions
      of dollars spent, money spent in unreal numbers and a major

    Ted Cruz was wrong about TPP and the Corker bill. But I believe him when he says he was lied to. And I hate it when people attack him like this.

    Cruz gets pounded from all sides…. It must take a huge toll on him and I think it is a miracle that he gets it right 98 out of 100 times.

    Trump faces the same thing. He gets pounded with the same question from 4 different angles and 40 different gotchas built into it. Out of sheer exhaustion he will say the wrong thing occasionally and everybody will jump him.

    So please cut out the Cruz bashing. Like Trump, Cruz stands with us more than anybody. I’m glad Donald Trump seems to get that about Ted Cruz…….

    I’m a first time commenter but long time “watcher” of this site and a YUGE Trump fan. I try to promote this site also to others. Thanks for all the important info. I just thought I’d post this here since this article reminded me of another YUGE issue that many are clueless about. It’s the TPA deal that was recently passed also. Most don’t know how it’s connected to the UN Arms Trade Treaty and probably done in order to facilitate “their” long wished dream of our disarmament. Excerpts:

    “If the TPA passes, then the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) would not need to be subject to senatorial debate. In fact, it would not be up for debate at all. TPA calls for a simple up or down vote on such presidentially brokered international agreements.
    The ATT is so offensive to the preservation of the right to keep and bear arms, it is an understatement to call it unconstitutional.
    ..the Arms Trade Treaty grants a monopoly over all weaponry in the hands of the very entity (government) responsible for over 300 million murders in the 20th century… leaves private citizens powerless to oppose future slaughters.
    The right to own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer all means of armed resistance, including handguns, is denied to civilians ..”

    “Blue Helmet United Nations personnel will be replacing municipal police forces whose ranks have been harassed and hollowed out over the last year by Obama activists in groups like #BlackLivesMatter.

    Like all things named by the UN, the ‘Strong Cities Network’ (SCN) sounds benign and good for society, a society distracted from what is really going on by their own self-serving governments.
    … SCN makes its debut at a time when the public at large is forbidden to identify Islamic terrorists as Islamic terrorists; when citizens who dare to stand up for individual rights are automatically branded as dissenters who must be cowed into silence.
    The project, introduced out of the proverbial blue at United Nations headquarters on Wednesday by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is touted as the launch of a strong cities network “to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism”.
    With no public input, no Congress debate or vote, it will be blue helmets and not local cops who will be policing the streets of America, in an initiative underway before its launch date.”

    My note: Therefore, in my view, “they” (traitors in DC) are beginning their big push to disarm us via the TPA/UN Arms Treaty. The Black Lives Matter movement and others like it were part of the plan – along with the flood of illegals and invasion of Muslim “refugees” that Trump said could be a Trojan Horse (yes, it is). They want much chaos – with more “events” that will use as excuses to send out the Blue Helmets, other Law Enforcement that they control (national security or something) to confiscate guns.

    On Cruz: I like much of what he is saying, but the sad reality is, it is irrelevant. A successful run for POTUS is incredibly expensive, in the billions of dollars and Cruz doesn’t have the personal fortune to fund it. He will therefore have to take money from the Political Elite, which means he will have to advocate their positions, or face an elections without the funds and a “Dem.” candidate with unlimited funds.
    Game, Set and Match, Political Elite.
    Sadly, a vote for Cruz is a vote for corrupt political business as usual. Nothing against Cruz, it’s just the reality of our current political situation.

    Cruz, regardless of flaws or not, simply cannot win the general. Like others, I have issues with some of his votes, regardless of whether he was lied to or not.

    That aside, the TPP will now be made public, reviewed, and commented upon by every pundit and think tank. However, how will they evaluate. Libertarian Cato, will rate 0 = protectionist, to 10 = free trade. Is that a good unit of measure? I say ‘no’. Because as we’ve seen ‘free trade’ too often is ‘bad trade’ as far as US jobs.

    I can even understand the desire by some for this deal. As China’s wages increase, they’ve started off-shoring some manufacturing to lower cost SE Asian countries. From a different perspective, the IP protections, and some others, may well be perceived to act to block rampant Chinese IP theft, and for smaller countries, offer a shield from Chinese intrusion into their economies via TPP. However, none of these possible ‘benefits’ is beneficial for the American worker. Nor is it encouraging from the standpoint of US sovereignty. Unfortunately, it is so massive and complex, that I doubt the US citizen will have a good understanding of what the add on effects will be should it pass Congress. All in all, a very worrisome piece of legislation.

    “American Made” – consider, those vehicles are received by proposal engineers long before anyone else sees them. They then go to cost estimating, then production engineers who consult with the guys on the plant floor before it ever goes into production. All those jobs, well before production, used to be American, as were the machines on their plant floor, their engineers, etc. You get the idea.

They’re not lifting anyone, other than a few puppet masters, just pushing everyone else down. And those already down will be crushed hardest. It’s looking more and more like our nation is headed into a “Snow Piercer” kind of societal breakdown. Currently, the big wrench in the globalists’ works are the remaining intelligence and freedom of USA citizens, backed by their 2nd A rights–all of which have been under heavy assault for decades, recently accelerating to the extreme.
