On Eve of NAFTA Re-negotiations Manufacturing CEOs and Richard Trumka Drop Masks…

The transparency is obvious for anyone who has followed the history of motives behind U.S. business entities, and affiliates, who each have vested financial interests in global manufacturing exploitation to the detriment of America’s economic interests and U.S middle-class workers.

It would be laughable if their oppositional interest was not so consequential.  However, TEAM USA will prevail. Bigly. Believe it.  For many years CTH has been warning about the “trillion dollar stakeholders” in the multinational corporatism that infects the U.S. body politic. –Outlined HERE

Toward that end manufacturing CEO’s, who have vested interests in retaining international manufacture of their products for U.S. market, took up positions aboard President Trump’s manufacturing council in an effort to steer the “America First” shift in economic policy.

Those CEO council voices initially convinced President Trump not to “scrap” the NAFTA trade deal and instead requested a “re-negotiation” therein.  However, on the eve of the actual re-negotiation taking place, and against the backdrop of looming and consequential trade sanctions against China, those same entities are facing a reality where the system enabling their continued indulgences is likely to be collapsed.  Because Trump.

The communist Chinese government is no longer trying to hide their prior insurance payments into the corrupt and exploitative economic policy of the U.S.

From communist Beijing their position is clear:

CHINA #1 – Washington is more experienced than China in trade wars. But US society and opinion can hardly bear their own losses. If a China-US trade war starts, many of those who now support a hardline stance toward China would turn against the Trump administration. (link)

China is counting on supportive confrontation from all of the DC corrupt politicians and business enterprises who have indulged and accepted payment for policy services rendered.

Simultaneously China is prepping to hit back with use of the U.S. CoC, Auto Industry and massive Big Agricultural lobby to retain their parasitic economic position:

CHINA #2 – […] Now it is hard to predict how far the US investigations will go and what the conclusions will be. The US will collect a number of bargaining chips and ask China to pay the bill. China needs to adopt detailed countermeasures to cope with US artifice.

Beijing should consider anti-monopoly and anti-dumping investigations into US companies and collect evidence of the US’ unfair competition. In addition, China should plan retaliatory precautions in the export sectors the US cares about the most, including agricultural products and automobiles. (link)

Just like the useful idiots on the left and how the globalists manipulate them toward positions antithetical to their own best interests; if you don’t think that China is smart enough to know the key to protecting their economics is to kick up additional strife; well, you don’t understand how underhanded and sneaky the Chinese are.

CHINA #3 – […] Compared with previous administrations, recently race relations have been much more strained during Trump’s term. However, today’s race conflicts are nothing compared with those of the 1960s and 1970s, and thus there are ways to play down the current tensions.

But the Charlottesville violence is serious as it is not an isolated affair. Apart from the long-standing divide among different ethnic groups in US society, today’s racial tensions are rising under new backgrounds.

The US is seeing sliding national strength, and globalization has struck a blow to the interests of middle- and lower-class whites. This is the new source of US anxieties. If society can’t work out a solution, these anxieties will be transformed into domestic issues, especially racial conflicts. The issue of race in today’s US has its origin in a number of factors and thus may have staying power.

Trump said he was strongly against taking in more immigrants on the campaign trail. After assuming office, Trump is the president of all Americans, but some white supremacists still regard him as “theirs” and believe their time has come.

Social welfare resources are less abundant than before, and minority groups are increasingly competitive. The competition for welfare and other resources is unprecedentedly intense between white people and minorities, with shrinking leeway for both sides.

Racial tensions were a major human rights and political issue in the 1960s and 1970s, but now it is increasingly penetrating everyday life in the US, intertwining with many other issues. (link)

Consider the example of apparel maker Under Armour.  The CEO, Kevin Plank, resigned from President Trump’s manufacturing council Monday citing scrutiny over Trump’s response to the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Now where do you think Kevin Plank has Under Amour manufactured?  YEP, CHINA !

Additionally, in January when President Trump was about to take office and a goal of AFL-CIO Chairman Richard Trumka was to maneuver himself into the best position possible to retain his indulgences – he was intent on cozying up to President Trump.

(see tweet)

Remember, union leader Trumka isn’t about supporting workers, his objectives are to support his own ideological enterprises.  Trumka receives compensation and indulgences from the same lobbying entities who manipulate political policy in Washington DC.

That reality is why Trumka supported ObamaCare when it was against the interests of his actual middle-class union membership.

That reality is also why Trumka endorsed Hillary Clinton, over Bernie Sanders, yet he fully understood that Clinton was in support of the Trans-Pacific-Partnership trade deal; and again TPP is against the interests of his union membership.

The same thing is going on here with NAFTA about to be renegotiated and Trumka now fleeing the CEO manufacturing council.

Trumka quits the advisory council on the same day President Trump introduces massive “Infrastructure spending”?  That spending will specifically assist the membership Trumka is supposed to represent.

Even without the history of Trumka’s self-indulgent motivations, today’s example alone provides you all you need to know about who and what are the motives and intents.

It’s all about the economics folks.  All of it.

It’s a BIG CLUB and we haven’t been allowed to be in it.  We elected President Trump to finally defeat this BIG CLUB and represent our interests and those club members are thrashing out, desperate in their efforts to retain their economic position.

There are Trillions of Dollars at stake.

      Brant, and they will be paying BIG import taxes to sell their products here. As to the unions, they really need to be debanded. My father fought in the early 1900’s for a union for workers and many were killed in that fight. Things with CIO were good but then, like all the crap too place (DNC published 1963 Communist Manifesto, democrats took our tax money to take over the educational systems, and then helped to get teacher unions started up AND the evil criminal AFofL took over CIA and all have been down hill for workers, teachers (being less able to teach and many accepted without real skills to teach), and for buying items made in foreign lands because for that Made in the USA was the accepted product abroad because of quality and price. Well, Trump is right and conglomerate corporations buying up little companies, moving over to cheaper salaries and slave work abroad, the unions thinking they own us and the company where the workers are hired to work, and teachers not allowed to teach that America is a warring country, none of Constitution, Bill of Rights and that we are a Republic and not a democracy, are desperate and filled with fear that we have a very intelligent hard hitting leader that is breaking up their party and that means few evil elites over rich owning/buying our Congress members and protesters because their globalist let’s get richer crap is more important than freedom for us and our future. Gluttons they are, but they don’t seem to think and realize that gluttons usually die from their gluttony! They can bombast Trump and think we are as dumb as they are, but we are smarter and ready to take them on! So, the pitiful little bosses are removing themselves because they don’t want to give up the big bucks and living the life of riley over the poor in Asia, India, etc. Sorry, but we big boys/girls are not going to allow it. Big import taxes and how much money will you make? We know who you are now and already people are standing up and saying no more of your purchases. Actually, I also see many supposed CEOs and union leaders being removed with empty pockets. You are asking for punishment and it is on the way. This is OUR President that we fairly elected because he is not a politician you can purchase, because he knows business, and best of all he loves America, and it is obvious you fools do not. CIAO! AND WATCH KARMA GET YOU.

      I would suspect the Chinese, Mexican and probably Canadian trade negotiators are about to be taken to the woodshed. These countries and their “best & brightest” are steadfastly using the same information, the same data, the same consultants, the same news services and the same polls that said the the next President was going to be Hillary. They’re not going to know what hit them.

      I would not be surprised if Trump will publicly ask Mexico & Canada why the US Taxpayer has to bear the burden of “free trade” like he did when he called out NATO. It’s tough to respond to that without making about 250-300 million “partners” pretty upset.

    I’ve listened to Trumka rail about NAFTA. Clearly it’s all an act.

    Reminds me of the GOPe and ObamaCare really. The GOP pretended they were opposed to Ocare and sent show votes of repeal knowing Obama would veto. But now that we have a President that will sign repeal, they fold and vote against repeal.

    Trumka was only against NAFTA, because he knew it wasn’t under threat with Obama and Hillary. But now that NAFTA and China trade are being renegotiated in the interest of Americans, the mask falls off, and he bolts. Trumka was always Pro NAFTA, Pro TPP, and Pro bad trade with China. It took a credible threat of those agreements being completely re negotiated or going away completely for his true colors to show

      The problem revolving around the cheaper imports, with the likes of Walmart, will stem from the entrenched and learned selfishness of the US consumer. The US “citizen” consumer, like their politicians, talk a good fight but when it comes to sacrificing a little to improve the US economy and economic standing of other US citizens they bulk at the sacrifice. They have been weaned on cheap imports as well as brainwashed into selfishness, and will scream bloody murder when the cheap stuff is replaced by slightly more expensive US made stuff. Let’s see how this all plays out.

      I can already see the headlines on the MSM, Trump’s actions hurts the US consumer in the pocket book, but no mention of gains in skilled US jobs created or wages increased. The reaction of the voting age consumers will tell the tale.

    Reading that narrative from the Chinese, I’m struck how detailed they’re speaking about our internal politics and our body politic, thus revealing how heavily they are invested in that body politic and its workings. They give the game away, right there in their statements. I’ve never seen the like, not even in statements from the USSR back in the day. It’s troubling, but it’s also going to make it easier for Trump to get his message through to them. That intimate relationship with the Swamp means the Chinese will readily recognize that there’s a new sheriff in town, and that sheriff is ignoring the globalists and multinational corporatists that the Chinese have been manipulating against our interests. I think they’re already getting that message, and this fearful Chinese narrative and clumsy slipping of the mask is proof of that. Everything seems to be proceeding just as expected. This is going to work, folks.

      You’re wise to notice how sophisticated China is. In various ways our media deceives us about China (and all other countries that pose threats), so most people are basically living in a false reality. It’s one of America’s greatest weaknesses, IMO. Our past successes have resulted in our current weaknesses. Americans think America is unbeatable, which is why so many Americans advocate for anti-American policies that will logically only result in America’s downfall.

      Everyone on here has seen reports about 25,000 Chinese spies in America. That’s serious and will result in devastating consequences.

      Most people have no idea about Chinese hacking or about how much money China has stolen from the US via stolen IP, stolen trade secrets, stolen business secrets, etc.

      Luckily, Trump understands the real threat China poses, much more than anyone like me will probably ever truly comprehend.

      I agree with you that the cited article is a good sign in that it shows us China is showing their hand because they’re worried, afraid, and threatened. Why would they show their hand like this? Maybe they’re reassuring the people dependent on them? No idea, but it means something…

    House Approves U.S.-Canada-Mexico Trade Pact on 234 to 200 Vote, Giving Clinton Big Victory

    By Kenneth J. Cooper
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Thursday, November 18, 1993; Page A01
    The House approved the North American Free Trade Agreement last night by a comfortable 234 to 200 vote, giving President Clinton a crucial victory after a bitter debate that crisscrossed party and ideological lines for most of the fall.

    Clinton and his House allies came from behind to wipe out a substantial lead that NAFTA opponents held as the week began.

    . A bipartisan coalition of 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats prevailed over the opposition of 156 Democrats, 43 Republicans and one independent.

      WASHINGTON — The Senate on Saturday approved the North American Free Trade Agreement, ending with little flourish a national debate that a week ago had threatened to throw out the pact entirely and complicate Clinton Administration plans for expanded trade agreements with other parts of the world.

      The vote was 61 to 38. As was the case earlier in the House, Republicans supplied the most support, accounting for 34 of the favorable votes to 27 from the Democrats.

    What I don’t understand is this:

    If the rules of the game are changing, what point is there in spending countless amounts of money trying to preserve the status quo?

    Why don’t they do what any normal, enterprising person would do, especially someone who is currently successful and who has immense resources, and simply RE-POSITION to benefit from the new rules of the game?

    Are they really so scared that they can’t compete on a level playing field? They STILL have all of the advantages: corporate / brand name recognition, vast amounts of capital and access to more, presumably highly experienced and qualified leadership, etc.

    Yet they’re ACTING like they’re just a bunch of idiots who got where they are by the luck of the draw, being at the right place at the right time, and if anything changes at all, they’ll go from the Penthouse to the Poorhouse.

    If that’s the case, if they really suck that bad, then I hope they enjoy their new digs in the Poorhouse, they’ll have PLENTY of company!

    They all come off like a bunch of spoiled rich brats who have come to believe they are entitled to a position where competition is not only not required, but competition is actually beneath them.

    If I was a CEO of one of the major corporations, I wouldn’t be complaining or getting publicly political about any of it. I would be far too busy getting the new lay of the land, positioning and reorienting my company to the new conditions under which we will be operating, minimizing interruption to cash-flow, and doing everything possible to take advantage of inevitable new opportunities that appear whenever big changes occur.

    I just don’t see the point in all the wailing and gnashing of the teeth.

      They are the ones that need to study history.

      They have managed to get things the way they wanted for about the last 40 years or so.

      But in the timeline of thousands of years of “History” that is not very long.

  17. Is there a way to find out when was the Charlottesville permit issued?
    I am not a conspiracy theorist but if by any chance this permit is issued after the fact of finalizing the NAFTA renegotiation date then there might be some dots to connect – the timing of Charlottesville protest and subsequent resignations of these CEOs from President Trump’s panel.
    Another point to consider, NK gave a big win to President Trump’s approach by backing down but all you hear from MSM is “white supremacist”, etc.
    How is it okay for BLM to have their rally’s without a word of criticism from media but so called “white nationalists/supremacists” cannot have their own rally – especially when that is to protest in favor of preservation of piece of history? I did not watch any photos or videos but were there any protestors wearing KKK hoods? I am with President Trump when he spelled out in today’s presser about bad apples on both sides. He does see the media manufactured crisis clearly and by today’s presser he forced the MSM to cover the issue in the way a reporter should have covered from the beginning.
    I still think that this is media created crisis to not give credit to President Trump’s successes with NK and will not be surprised if this will go on for next at least a week if President Trump wins on NAFTA too. On second thoughts – okay now I am dangerously close to conspiracy theory but it is also very likely that President Trump might be playing media like a fiddle and getting his MAGA going while giving shiny objects for media to chase.

      Clarification – I do not mean to imply that President Trump is behind the protests and violence. I do not think President Trump plays that type of politics. If it was a year ago, then it was very likely that it would have been applicable as a presidential politics playbook.
      What I meant was, by telling the truth in today’s presser, President Trump added more fuel to MSMs fire and he is not naïve to believe that MSMs will have sudden change of heart and will “report” what the President suggested. From what I read in headlines on MSMs, it seems the spinning is already in motion regarding President’s comments in today’s presser. So while the media is busy chasing down what President said and what the fake-media wants the general people to think what he said / meant, NAFTA might get done the MAGA way with nary a protest from MSMs.

    even if true, this is pretty pathetic to select as your cause celebre – what about competition for college admissions and jobs?! Mortgages?! Promotions?!

    What President Trump said today was brave and 100% true. For too long, people have had to cave to the left because of what happened to blacks in history (by the Dems BTW). What Trump did today is to signal to the left that no longer can they get away with murder by just claiming racism, dwelling on the past, and justify any of their actions. If Americans are smart, it will actually help blacks and all Americans move on and blacks and others on the left will be accountable for their actions.

  20. For China #3, with all due respect to China and its reporters, but the verbiage seems to imply that it was written by someone who is part of United States citizenry (probably a uniparty lobbyist?) and not by Chinese state media reporter.
    On following the link to the article, at the end there is a note – “Posted in OBSERVER” – does this mean it was a copy paste of an article originally “printed” in OBSERVER? Searching for the article in observer.com did not return any results.

    I’d love to hear Trump say to all the manufacturing and union heads, “Those of you who don’t back my re-negotiated NAFTA are going to have your taxes increased 1000% and subsidies ended…..just kidding….maybe.”

    They all need to have their cages rattled by Trump, put the fear of POTUS into them.

    These people are so dumb.

    China indicates that it will use the WTO as their bargaining chip.
    US trade policy deviates from WTO rules
    http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1061461.shtml
    Note to China – WTO does not help American small businesses. President Trump controls the U.S. DOJ now.

    It appears everyone is so busy talking talking, virtue signaling, and saying “MeMeMe” they have not read the comments from American small businesses and the American people.
    Spoiler alert – most comments want NAFTA scrapped, not re-negotiated.

    That is what the whole fracas was about last weekend. ANYONE could see that. To Derail and Disrupt the People’s TRUMP Agenda with a Hate Baiters SWAMP UNITE event, right before the BIG NEGOTIATIONS begin. How many of all these paid disruptors were from unions?

    Then they let all the airheads from other countries and the FAKE NEWS weigh in and have at President TRUMP, to try to kneecap him before it even begins. Let all the haters really come out and HATE MORE!

    All the “Dropouts” are really SELLOUTS. ENTIRELY TRANSPARENT and PREDICTABLE.

    This is a BLESSING!!! I will leave you naked before your enemies is the prophecy coming true AGAIN. Put some REAL people on your committee, the others were never deserving of a seat in the People’s White House next to OUR President. They are Brutus, sending in their goons to do all of their advance dirty work, and they would finish it off. Be Gone Nasty People!

    #MAGA
    #Covfefe

    P.S. Jeff Sessions and Christopher Wray had better be diligent and be fully transparent with who put this violent shindig together. It is way past time to put some BIG Players behind bars.

    And while they are at it, they need to look into what happened in Chicago, San Jose and several other cities, surrounding the TRUMP Campaign. Does anyone remembering the Kenyan Impostor apologizing for these egregious acts of violence? Crickets. I tho’t not.
    The public is waiting.

      The Kenyan Impostor.
      Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.

      I’ve been to MANY well coordinated and SAFE events in my time. No one gets in or out without a color coordinated wristband. Each wristband is colored according to the group they are with, and no one sees them until the day of. They must be unique, and hard to duplicate on short notice (easy-peasy). IF you aren’t wearing one, you are removed immediately, no questions asked. Photo’s are captured for every removal.

      Wristbands will help identify the guilty parties if any nonsense occurs. No one is allowed to bring in unchecked backpacks, bags, or weaponry of any type.

      IF you want to protest, your org must have a PERMIT. No Permit = No Wristbands = No Entrance. A wristband is $20 (MIN), for security, photo ID Required and current photo captured, and you sign a waiver. Your org should have to purchase event insurance too.

      https://www.trustedchoice.com/business-insurance/liability/special-event/concert/

      Taxpayers should not have to pay, and pay, and pay again, the enormous security costs for these orgs to continually protest anything and everything they want. And/or the enormous damage they bring to our cities and towns.

      This is also clearly a SCAM to tear down (give them space to destroy) and rebuild inner cities, with new, more stringent regs, already destroyed by years of being run by DIMs! Just look at what they did in Baltimore.

    A few bits and pieces that pertain to some of the questions raised by commenters.

    POWER:
    Excerpts from The New Freedom a book by Woodrow Wilson, 1961

    Pg. 20:
    In most parts of our country men work, not for themselves, not as partners in the old way in which they used to work, but generally as employees,–in a higher or lower grade,–of great corporations. There was a time when corporations played a very minor part in our business affairs, but now they play the chief part, and most men are the servants of corporations.
    You know what happens when you are the servant of a corporation[…]
    It is true that, while most men are thus submerged in the corporation, a few, a very few, are exalted to a power which as individuals they could never have wielded. Through the great organizations of which they are the heads, a few are enabled to play a part unprecedented by anything in history in the control of the business operations of the country and in the determination of the happiness of great numbers of people.[…]

    Remember that originally a Corporation only had a life span of 20 years. It then had to go through incorporating again that is ask the incorporating state for permission to continue to exist.

    THIS is the interesting part:

    Pg. 24:
    Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
    They know that America is not a place of which it can be said, as it used to be, that a man may choose his own calling and pursue it just as far as his abilities enable him to pursue it; because to-day, if he enters certain fields, there are organizations which will use means against him that will prevent his building up a business which they do not want to have built up; organizations that will see to it that the ground is cut from under him and the markets shut against him.

    I saw this happen when the company I worked for competed against a Rothschild/Rockefeller owned company and WON – TWICE. They used their control over the WWF and MSM to bankrupt his company in the USA and Canada.

    I’m waiting for someone like Oprah to (wo)man up, do the right thing, and get behind our President and what he’s trying to do for us.
    I’m not holding my breath though.
    Why Oprah? Because she has done whole programs on how the divide between rich and poor was growing larger and larger, how the market for luxury good was doubling and quadrupling even as the average American was struggling to afford life’s necessities, etc.
    She’s not a stupid woman, she’s very intelligent, and she is also fairly well informed. There has to be a point where people like her say, “AHA”! and the lightbulb goes on.
    I know that my own personal epiphany was a while in coming, and I’m no genius, nor do I have all the access Oprah has. I mean, she has people PAID to do research and keep on top of things for her. She has to know by now, she HAS TO.
    Even that dimwitted Van Jones on CNN has spoken out against NAFTA, and he can barely put two and two together.
    Where are the others?
