BLACKMAIL – Mexican Econ Minister Threatens To Flood U.S. With Illegals If We Don’t Give Them A Good NAFTA Deal…

When candidate Donald Trump first proposed renegotiating NAFTA back in 2015 everyone was stunned. Fixing bad trade deals had never been proposed by any candidate. Candidate Trump also proposed a border wall.  Those two policy initiatives are entirely connected. Almost immediately the government of Mexico realized the potential impact and threatened to use illegal migration if NAFTA was reopened.

Well, Trump won the presidency.  The crony capitalists/lobbyists in DC (U.S. Chamber of Commerce – Tom Donohue) are freaking out. Congress was notified of the intent to renegotiate NAFTA.  Mexico and Canada were notified. Commerce Secretary Ross, U.S.T.R Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin are ready to begin next week (Wed).

President Trump and Secretary Ross have already announced they will try to renegotiate NAFTA on a trilateral basis (U.S., Canada and Mexico). However, if it doesn’t work, they’ll scrap the 3-way NAFTA and go one-on-one with individual bilateral agreements.

Today Mexico’s Economic Minister Ildefonso Guajardo threatens to flood the U.S. with South American illegal aliens, criminals and gang members as leverage to keep exploiting NAFTA.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico could pull back on cooperation in migration and security matters if the United States walks away from talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Mexican economy minister said in a newspaper report published on Thursday.

Ildefonso Guajardo, who will take part in the first round of NAFTA talks with U.S. and Canadian officials in Washington on Wednesday, told the Reforma daily that new tariffs on Mexican exports to the United States were unacceptable.

If they do not treat [us] well commercially, they should not expect us to treat them well by containing the migration that comes from other regions of the world and crosses Mexico,” Guajardo said. “Or they should not expect to be treated well in collaboration with security issues in the region.”

Guajardo also said if U.S. President Donald Trump moves to impose tariffs of 35 percent on any Mexican exports, Mexico could respond with “mirror” actions, such as putting an equal tariff on U.S. yellow corn.  (read more)

      Dare I say that the strength of the US financial system, the presence of the Federal Reserve/Central Banks and US monetary policy allowed us to create the 2nd economy to compensate for the disastrous NAFTA deal.

      We also know that Mexico was negatively effected in some ways by NAFTA and that it also displaced Mexican poor in different ways than the American working class. The difference is that the US had the ability to offset the impact to the working poor via WIC/EBT/etc. My guess is that Mexico never had that ability because of the general weakness of their economy and as a result we have the massive Mexican migration over the past 30 years.

      I don’t think this is blackmail on Mexico’s part at all. To say so would be to credit Mexican leadership with a cunning they don’t deserve. It’s merely a threat that is no different than North Korea revealing their exact attack plans on Guam – the type of threat that offers no strategic advantage whatsoever other than perhaps what would be gained by a bit of pity on a flailing adversary.

      The world is starting to learn that the US really isn’t a superpower but under an America-First doctrine it really is a ‘hyperpower’. Under the prevailing capitalist, free market system we’ve offered the world prosperity that has never been known but they are learning that to play a gentleman’s game you must play by gentlemen’s rules (or get fire, fury, and walls with big, beautiful doors).

      I don’t blame them either. If I could empty our jails and send our dead weight somewhere else, I would do so in a minute. The problem would be finding a leadership as dumb as the people who have governed the United States for the last 25 years.

      This is hardball negotiating by Mexico. Good for them. They use their leverage; We use our leverage (e.g. economic might). This is exactly how you get to a fair deal. All the prior deals were negotiated by professional diplomats too polite and worried about their access to the DC gravy train to call it like it is. Nothing got solved.

      The guy from Mexico is putting the flow of illegal immigration on the table. Wonderful. We’ll put access to our markets on the same table and we’ll negotiate. Everybody wins.

      None of this — absolutely none of it — is possible without Donald Trump.

      The 100 miles into Mexico should have been done after our last military engagement with Mexico. And it is certainly justified at this point, as we have ALREADY been colonized by tens of millions of “Anchor babies,” i.e., babies born on U.S. soil from illegal aliens who were then REWARDED for their illegality by being given U.S. citizenship.

    • IIRC, that law is already on the books. E-verify was to be fully functioning long ago. I am betting that funding (Congress) was never approved to actually Implement the system. Kind of like the border wall which was approved years ago and never funded.

      In the meantime, ICE and the Border Patrol has hired thousands of new agents and AG Sessions has fast tracked new immigration judges to work on the massive backlog of deportation cases. If our immigration enforcers had not been hogtied for the last eight years, we would not be in this situation.

      It is also high time to make an example of some of the larger employers of the illegals with some wicked fines AND shut down their operations while the investigation is “completed”. If your business was shut down for a month, you would certainly dot more I’s and cross more T’s.

    This is an empty threat since the US holds all of the cards on trade with Mexico. If we put a 35% import tax on every vehicle manufactured in Mexico, the US car manufactures will have no incentive to manufacture in Mexico. The Trump economics team has the Mexicans running scared and stupidly making inciting statements. As far as corn exports goes, the Mexicans will fold on that too because the cost to import from South America into MX will be higher than from the US. The US is in the drivers seat on economic negotiations. Couple that with the repatriation of millions of illegals back to Mexico is going to be the Mexicans biggest economic problem.

    June 2008 Small Farmers and the Doha Round: Lessons from Mexico’s NAFTA Experience

    […]The vacuum created by retreat of the Mexican state from agriculture was filled by large US and Mexican agribusiness. In the post-NAFTA period the bulk of FDI in agricultural sector has been in the agri-business and agro-processing rather than agriculture[14]. As a result a few large trans-national agribusiness firms, mostly US and Mexican, dominate storage, flour milling, grain trading[15] and meat processing. Put differently they dominate the intermediation chain that takes crop or cattle and makes it a marketable commodity. Transnational agribusiness has used this dominant position and a process of vertical and horizontal integration to establish an overwhelming presence in the market for wheat, rice, corn, soya, poultry, meat, pork and eggs. Transnational agri-business tends to have much closer links with larger farmers and producers, who have better access to land, irrigation and credit, all of which are scarce commodities for small farmers[16], particularly after the withdrawal of the state. And the little state assistance that remains tends to inordinately favour larger farmers.

    Alongside this, as hoped for by designers of NAFTA, has been ‘modernisation’ – a sharp decline in the share of agriculture and allied sectors in the workforce. From nearly 27% in 1991 it declined to slightly less than 15% in 2006, losing more than 2 million jobs[17]. Again small and marginal farmers and agricultural labour bore the brunt, as evidenced by very sharp decline in the number of rural households. According to a study by Jose Romero and Alicia Puyana carried out for the federal government of Mexico, between 1992 and 2002, the number of agricultural households fell an astounding 75% – from 2.3 million to 575, 000[18].

    There has been a significant increase in migration out of rural areas as livelihoods are lost and farms have been abandoned. The hope was that this migration out of low-productivity agriculture would be absorbed into higher-productivity non-agrarian urban employment. But anemic employment growth in the post-NAFTA period, particularly in manufacturing[19], put paid to that. […]

      Cargil VP Dan Amstutz wrote the World Trade Organization Agreement on Ag.
      Amstutz had the grain traders name an award after him.

      From my notes of about a decade ago:
      THIS WAS THE SET-UP
      Amstutz was VP of Cargill. He wrote the WTO Agreement on Ag in 1995. (Even Clinton admitted that agreement lead to starvation and riots of 2008) Amstutz then wrote the Freedom to Farm act in 1996. This law was later called the Freedom to Fail act as US farmers over produced and grain prices dropped like a rock. Grain traders used the surplus of very cheap grain to bankrupt farmers around the world. This was actually a KNOWN US policy as Clinton has just admitted.

      President Bill Clinton, now the UN Special Envoy to Haiti, publicly apologized last month for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported, subsidized US rice during his time in office. The policy wiped out Haitian rice farming and seriously damaged Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient. (wwwDOT)democracynow.org/2010/4/1/clinton_rice

      Amstutz was also responsible for wiping out the US grain reserve system. How to fight a food crisis: To blunt the ravages of drought and market greed, we need a national grain reserve… the 1996 Freedom to Farm Act abolished our national system of holding grain in reserve.
      articles(DOT)latimes.com/2012/sep/21/opinion/la-oe-kaufman-food-hunger-drought-20120921

      Amstutz then went to work for Goldman Sachs. This has always puzzled me until I finally ran across the last piece of the puzzle.

      That is where things get really interesting. This is stolen from WANTtoKNOW. Info: Excerpts of Key Financial News Articles in Major Media
      (wwwDOT)wanttoknow.info/financialnewsarticles-20-20

      The first articles states:

      Commodity Futures Trading Commission judge says colleague biased against complainants

      ..Painter said Judge Bruce Levine … had a secret agreement with a former Republican chairwoman of the agency to stand in the way of investors filing complaints with the agency. “On Judge Levine’s first week on the job, nearly twenty years ago, he came into my office and stated that he had promised Wendy Gramm, then Chairwoman of the Commission, that we would never rule in a complainant’s favor,” Painter wrote. “A review of his rulings will confirm that he fulfilled his vow….

      Levine had never ruled in favor of an investor. Gramm [wife of former senator Phil Gramm (R-Tex.)], was head of the CFTC just before president Bill Clinton took office. She has been criticized by Democrats for helping firms such as Goldman Sachs and Enron gain influence over the commodity markets. After leaving the CFTC, she joined Enron’s board.
      (wwwDOT)washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/19/AR2010101907216.html

      NOW we know WHY Goldman Sachs hired Dan Amstutz!

      The second Article states:

      How Goldman gambled on starvation

      This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world – Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more – have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn’t afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions.” Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into “derivatives” that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in “food speculation” was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof. (wwwDOT)independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-how-goldman-gambled-on-starvation-2016088.html

      Here is the real attitude of these sons of syphilitic jackals:

      In summary, we have record low grain inventories globally as we move into a new crop year. We have demand growing strongly. Which means that going forward even small crop failures are going to drive grain prices to record levels. As an investor, we continue to find these long term trends…very attractive.” Food shortfalls predicted: 2008 (wwwDOT)financialsense.com/fsu/editorials/dancy/2008/0104.html

      Recently there have been increased calls for the development of a U.S. or international grain reserve to provide priority access to food supplies for Humanitarian needs. The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and the North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA) strongly advise against this concept..Stock reserves have a documented depressing effect on prices… and resulted in less aggressive market bidding for the grains.” July 22, 2008 letter to President Bush (wwwDOT)naega.org/images/pdf/grain_reserves_for_food_aid.pdf

      Dan Amstutz was president of the North American Export Grain Association.

      They even named an award after the B@$t@rd!

      The Amstutz Award is given by the North American Export Grain Association in honor of Dan Amstutz and in recognition of his outstanding and extraordinary service to the export grain and oilseed trade from the United States. Appropriately, the first recipient of this distinguished service award was Mr. Amstutz… naega(DOT)org/?page_id=301

      The possible consequences were clearly communicated in a Senate briefing a week before initial passage of the Senate bill and 6 months before final approval of the final House-Senate bill. (wwwSOT)earth-policy.org/Transcripts/SenateEPW07.htm

      Here’s a bit from a June 13, 2007 Senate briefing given by Lester Brown from the Earth Policy Institute:

      The U.S. corn crop, accounting for 40 percent of the global harvest and supplying nearly 70 percent of the world’s corn imports, looms large in the world food economy. Annual U.S. corn exports of some 55 million tons account for nearly one fourth of world grain exports. The corn harvest of Iowa alone exceeds the entire grain harvest of Canada. Substantially reducing this export flow would send shock waves throughout the world economy.

      In six of the last seven years, total world grain production has fallen short of use. As a result, world carryover stocks of grain have been drawn down to 57 days of consumption, the lowest level in 34 years. (wwwDOT)earth-policy.org/Transcripts/SenateEPW07_data.htm See Data.)

      To add insult to injury Congress did not even see if biofuel actually saves on the use of oil. It does not! David Pimentel, professor of ecology and agriculture at Cornell found it takes more fossil fuel to produce biofuel than is recovered.

      I have several more pages on the Ag Cartel. The LAST thing these sons of syphilitic jackals want is to sell grain at the price a poor Mexican peasant can afford unless the US tax payer via ‘Farm subsidies’ is actually footing the bill.

        Dude….there’s plenty of corn masa in Mexico for tortillas. Every town has one or two tortilla manufacturers. My point was that billion dollar US Ag companies like ADM and Cargill control large segments of Mexican agriculture.

        So the illegal AG cartels like the drug cartels have total control of Mexican US trade.

    Some ideas on how to approach the problem of Illegal immigration. The bad, the good, the good, and the good.

    The bad: Mexico abandons cooperation RE allowing illegal immigrant passage through Mexico and facilitation of human transport to our Southern border if the USA does not cave to NAFTA negotiation demands and freebies.

    The first good: Border control will be reinforced. Hordes of invaders will have to be accommodated South of the border. Tariffs applied to all imports from Mexico (since Mexico has a massive annual trade surplus with us, reciprocal tariffs will impact their economy more substantially than ours)
    Democrats will face intense pressure to accept funding for the wall. RINOs will face double and triple that pressure, with PDJT pounding on them if they fail to act. Employment will require strict verification of citizenship/permanent residence/temporary employment authorization status. Failure to comply will become onerous to employers breaking the law.

    The second good: illegals aliens remaining in the country will be put under major pressure, including possible forfeiture of everything they had accumulated until then (bank accounts and property). Cash will flow to the treasury; property will be considered abandoned and then auctioned.

    The third good: illegal aliens who do not leave by their own means would be deported and not allowed to apply for visas to enter the USA, even if sponsored by grown up anchor babies.

    Additional measures: taxing remittances by illegal aliens to their countries of origin. Refusing visas to officials from countries that do not accept returning residents or deported criminals. Banning tax refunds to individuals working with a stolen SSN. Penalizing banks and wire transfer services resorting to tricks to remit money from illegal aliens under the table.

        I’ve been hearing for years that flooding the country with other nationals is a good thing.

        Fills jobs spoiled Americans won’t do.
        Diversity of Culture widens our pigeon-holed perspective.
        Compassion for those less fortunate is the perfect penance for our years of abusing privilege.
        etc.

        So, by this guy saying if we ditch NAFTA they’ll let even more in, he must want to ditch NAFTA too? I.E, it’s a carrot.

        The alternative would be that this guy actually made a threat and the principles listed above are bullshit. I.E, it’s a stick.

        I’m just waiting for someone in the media to tell me which side this guy is actually on so I can adjust accordingly.

      We already have an invasion and they plan to claim about 1/4 of the USA as part of Mexico. As an old NAZI-supremacy group advocating the genocide of Americans and resettlement of North America with south of the border illegals, La Raza clearly falls under the statutes. 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES specifically § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy

      If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

      This is the expressed intention of La Raza:

      They explicitly intend to remove or kill all people not of “The Race” in this area. Here is the extent to which they have achieved infiltration of these areas.

      What is la raza, mecha, aztlan in regards to America???

      …Conference on March 15 – 18, 2001, the official “MEChA Philosophy” was ratified. An excerpt from the document states: “as Mechistas, we vow to work for the liberation of Aztlan.”

      The MEChA Clubs on each of the Santa Barbara high school campuses are not the only ones. MEChA groups exist on 90 percent of the public high school, college and university campuses in the Southwestern United States.
      http://www.mayorno.com/WhoIsMecha.html

      The La Raza goal is based on getting back the territory that Mexico lost & the US paid for after the Mexican-American War. Therefore it should be considered a Terrorist organization since it openly advocates the violent overthrow of US rule of law and occupation of United States territory with the ultimate intent of sedition. That is the real La Raza, which receives federal funds 30 million in CA alone.

      “Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)

      We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”
      That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.”

      Today in America as we learned at Trump rallies, you can assault white people right in front of the cops (Think San Jose and Chicago) in complete safety knowing the Demonrat city politicians, cops and Fake Media will make all sorts of excuses for your illegal behavior. This is funded by Soros who learned from the Master, Hitler. These paid thugs, Antifa and BLM are a repeat of the Brownshirts of the Nazi party. They are trying to use the exact same methods of intimidation and bullying to silence opposition.

      And La Raza? Why La Raza was formed by another Hitler paid American hater.

      Jose Vasconcelos who died in 1982, is the Nazi Propagandist behind La Raza Mexican nationalism. Like Soros, Jose was on the Nazi German payroll during WWII. La Raza, are actually Spanish Mexicans, with a dash of Indian. They are the upper class in Mexico and the Mexican equivalent of the Nazi “aryan” Race. La Raza Cosmica by Vasconcelos is the Mexican equivalent of Hitler’s Mein Kemp and was written during the same time period.

      I think it is time to declare La Raza a Terrorist/Seditious Organization. Round up the members and toss them out.

        I lived in SoCA for most of my life…and this movement, La Raza, was out in the open.
        Most people in SoCal know of this, but nationally it is below the radar.
        Most just look at the economic suicide of CA, and do not figure in this particular invasion.
        But, it should be factored in.

    Me thinks we often get so trigger-tongue happy, we miss the REAL POINT. As this website has said numerous times, to cut to the quick on ALL stories, “FOLLOW THE MONEY!” The ‘professional diplomats’ in the US were not King George Bush I in his Daddy Prescott Bush’s 1940 tuxedo, being so eastern-pure-bred polite. They were hired to work for the Elite Globalists where Daddy Prescott was an original founder, along with Rockefeller, the Dulles Bros., etc., etc.

    Polite? No! Another ruse! NAFTA was negotiated (or at least announced) by the 90’s tool of the globalists, Willy and the Hand Jives Clinton.

    Follow the money! We’ve been robbed since FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, etc. Kennedy tried to shut this crap down, and look what they did to him! The Kennedys were sufficiently connected to the REAL world (with Daddy’s Irish Mob connections) and they saw into the future and realized where we were headed with these traitors. Johnson was too busy stuffing dollars into his pockets playing Texas Hold ‘Em! Nixon was too paranoid. Ford, a pawn. Carter a double-pawn. Reagan held them off for 8 years. King George I was THIER LITTLE BOY! And BOOM! “Our BJ will finally help us control the western hemisphere! Why continue to interrupt and control Latin countries, when we can bring ’em all to the US, shut down Main Street, and shift the control and wealth to our family of snappy dressers on Wall Street.”

    Sorry, NAFTA had nothing to do with being nice and polite.

    Follow the money!
