NAFTA Watch – GOPe Construct U.S. Deregulation and Business Scheme To Increase NAFTA Appeal…

Sneaky.  CTH anticipated POTUS Trump would withdraw from NAFTA due to the FATAL FLAW that still remains unaddressed in all discussions.  So it came as a surprise to see reports (opaquely cited) that U.S.T.R. Lighthizer was willing to drop the U.S. firm stance on content origination rules within the auto-sector.

Why would the Trump team agree to low thresholds of U.S. auto-parts used in American cars?  It just doesn’t make sense.  Still doesn’t… but no-one’s talking right now; and clarity is impossible to find.  The bigger question remains:  Why haven’t we pulled out yet?

Perhaps the answer to that question lies in the heart of a plan concocted by a small group of conniving GOPe multinational business interests. The tricksters are creating an enticement plan to insert domestic rules on U.S. regulations into a renegotiated NAFTA draft.  The GOPe loves them some NAFTA. The GOPe will scheme to keep NAFTA.

Their current enticement plan is to work around congress, by structuring a NAFTA chapter on “rules of competitiveness”.  If the scheme works as they have outlined, many domestic regulations currently tripping up expanded U.S. business development, specifically shipping/transportation infrastructure (ports/railroads), could be reduced or eliminated by putting rules to override U.S. regulations in a final NAFTA deal.

Hypothetical Example: Portland, Oregon doesn’t want a new port facility to open. They block the proposal citing environmental regulations or internal infrastructure etc.   However, the new NAFTA rules require streamlined timelines and support the facility being built.  The NAFTA rule overrides the federal regulatory register (the domestic rule) being used by Portland to stop the development.

On it’s face, this sneaky approach seems like a way to cut through bureaucratic regulations to speed up economic expansion.  Ergo POTUS Trump would like the approach; or so the architects of the plan are approaching their construct by anticipating Trump’s thinking… Therefore POTUS Trump would see this innovative approach at deregulation as reason to remain in NAFTA.  “An enticement to remain”, at least that’s the plan in their mind.

However, the ultimate beneficiaries are not necessarily the local U.S. business interests; rather the beneficiaries are multinational corporations (Wall Street) who would still exploit NAFTA, but now hold a talking point showing benefit to Main Street U.S.A.   Hence, my definition of the schemers as “sneaky bastards”.

The “SNEAKS” never stop conniving and scheming. EVER.  In this endeavor, just like the TPP scheme no-one understood, Tom Donohue has the same Wall-Street-Minded Decepticons in position to pitch the ruse:

Ted Cruz of Texas, Steve Daines of Montana and Cory Gardner of Colorado. The senators touted the plan in a letter to Donald Trump on Tuesday, describing it as an unprecedented opportunity “to lock into law” major elements of the president’s economic development plan. (link)

You can barf or eye-roll, your choice.

Remember this is the same Decepticon crew that was for TPP and giving Obama the legislative fast-track trade approval authority (TPA); before one of them decided to run for the 2016 presidency and manufactured an insufferable walk-back that convinced a bunch of “Battered CONservatives” he really didn’t support TPP or TPA.   [See: historic reference for “sneaky bastard.”]

Behind the curtain here we can sense the invisible hand and familiar fingerprints of Tom Donohue and the U.S. CoC.

BLOOMBERG – […] The tactic could enable passage of an array of legislative proposals, including regulatory overhaul bills stymied in the Senate and measures to expand workforce development programs. Potential changes also could include setting ceilings on the cost of new regulations and making additional spectrum available for commercial use.

Adam White, who directs George Mason University’s Center for the Study of the Administrative State and who has been briefed on the effort, says the approach could improve the U.S. trade position by strengthening American competitiveness from within and enticing businesses to invest in the country.

“We need to be given the best possible opportunity to compete,” White said. “In some ways, that involves lowering barriers to trade abroad, but sometimes it involves lowering the barriers that we have created for ourselves.”  (read more)

Consider me suspicious cat on this scheme, as we look for more details:


Build the wall.

Destroy NAFTA.

Enough with the too-cute-by-half plans.


Just – get – us – out.

      That container ship reminds me of the stupidity of politicians. The port authorities in cities across the country are vying to be the supercargo port n there is no desecration that is too great. In my hometown of Savannah, Georgia, they are digging up the river channel which will eventually destroy everything in that area, the fishing, the shrimping, the wildlife, erosion to people‘s properties along the waterways and future lawsuits…all for something that they have not been promised. How incredibly insane is that? These damn politicians talk jobs jobs jobs even though they know that imports are on the downturn. It’s enough to make me weep.

        REASONS are that Yours, Mine, (Wilmington, NC) & Morehead City, Charleston, SC Our largest East Coast, Mid-Atlantic ports are ALL wanting to “deepen” River channels, Widen them..

        Because it’s the expansion of the Panama Canal that Handles much larger Ships, than Panamax class size vessels..

        I’m for Deepening & Widening for OUR port here..

        I also,live in SAV. As I recall, the channel widening didn’t happen overnight; planning was talked about for years and then another couple of years to get the project finished. No, we haven’t been “promised” anything, but we have had two of the largest built container ships come through the widened channel in the last year. That wouldn’t have happened before this project. Environmental impact? Fishing and shrimping is still happening. Maybe I just don’t “get it,” but I don’t see how deepening our channel another 5-7 feet is going to errode the shoreline any faster than in previous years of shipping traffic.


        • Prettyplease says:

          Wait n see. Deeper channel means faster flow which will undercut embankments. When you see the coffins in Bonaventure Cemetery floating down the river, you’ll understand. Every river that merges with the Savannah River will be affected.
          Faster flow means more fresh water mixing into salt, upsetting the brine ratio in the marshes where shrimp hatch. Fewer shrimp. Whole ecosystem is out of balance in a few years.
          My father worked for the Corp of Engineers, dredging that river for 35 years. I learned a lot from him. If he were alive today, he would say that this is a really bad idea.

          • Deeper channels mean SLOWER FLOW and LESS EROSION!
            • Deeper channels have a larger “cross section”.
            • Upstream tributaries still feed the exact same water flowing through the deeper channel.

            Same principle as the spray nozzle on a garden hose: Narrower nozzles concentrate and accelerate the flow to “erode” debris from the patio, where the wider hose itself cannot.

              .Not so. Read below. This is just the tip of the iceberg for the negative effects of dredging.
              What dredging does:

              Dredging removes compacted sediment that armors the stream bed, thus increasing the susceptibility to erosion.

              Dredging disrupts the alternating deep and shallow areas called pools and riffles, which serve as speed bumps for the stream, slowing the water and absorbing energy.
              Without these features, the stream has more energy to use eroding its bed and banks.

              Dredging creates a flattened stream bed without a low
              -flow channel where concentrated flow has enough
              energy to transport sediment through the system.
              This can result in deposition of far more sediment than the amount removed by dredging
               If a dredged channel is also straightened, the water velocity is increased significantly, due to increased slope and the loss of energy dissipation at bends.
              Faster water causes much more damage during floods.

              Dredging creates a deeper channel with high banks that are often susceptible to erosion or slumping. in addition, the lower water level can stress adjacent plant communities, reducing the ability of their root systems to stabilize the banks.

We need to go back to unilateral trade agreements with individual countries, not NAFTA, TPP and all the other BS exclusive clubs that these jokers want for themselves. Let the people vote on it and see what happens! I would bet if a poll were taken tomorrow about whether to remain or leave NAFTA that it would overwhelmingly be in favor for leaving! So how do we make a poll happen and then forward it to Trump? Independently speaking, not more of this bloomberg BS fake media crap either! Lets make it happen. Now is the time to be proactive much like what BREXIT was and is, we need our own referendum so we can decide! Anybody with me on this? This is probably one of the most important issues of our lifetimes and a determining factor for the future and securing the sovereignty of our great country.

The west coast states are the shortest logistics route to Pacific transports, and coincidentally some of the most onerous environmental and socialist (labor-centric) wackos in the USA. There are many of us in the Central and East side of the country that point at California and say “they brought it on themselves, a save the spotted salamander mentality, human-caused drought because of poor water management, poor logging management, cultural destruction, illegal immigration, etc” and say cut-em-off.

    California might be crazy, but it’s our family’s crazy. It’s like I can pick on my brother, but anyone outside of the family badmouth and you better watch out.

    With their toxic omnibus budget, racketeers Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, et al., have charted the perfect path for removing the GOP from power in 2018. They have frustrated Trump’s base and thus successfully given majority control back to the beltway lobbyist class who will furtively and generously reward them for their contemptable efforts.

    Once Republicans step back from the majority, which was never supposed to have happened, the new House will be able to launch impeachment proceedings against PDJT for the offense of “conspiracy to defraud government,” Mueller’s go-to crime that he is feverishly working to get across the finish line.

    The “loyal, conservative, Republicans,” once again comfortable in their minority roles, will cry foul and feign outrage as PDJT is knee-capped and rendered a lame duck, which has always been the play.

    Trump can veto the underthebus spending bill, and dump nafta, and start the big ugly all at the same time! Drop the gloves, it’s Time To Go! (while listening to Dropkick Murphy’s song). Unleash DeGenova.

    Then he can simply tweet out to Ryan, McConnell, Chamber of Commerce (FU Tom), and the mediadems the following simple questions:
    Who are you working for? Its not the American people.
    Who are you answering to? Its not the American people.
    Who is funding you? Its not the American people.

    We treepers can help the cause by only funding MAGA candidates directly in the primaries. The RNC is not on our side.

    The stupidity is becoming infectious, after watching the morning business shows. They all seem to be very happy with a few “higher” end service, political and media jobs as long as the Financiers on Wall Street can make their money in a low volatility environment.

    None them understands or even cares that economic systems only stand and grow on designing AND BUILDING stuff because the country that builds stuff controls the prices and has a growth oriented skilled economy and population. Services are based on companies that build stuff. Being you do not need that many skilled people to sell stuff and distribute. The major hubs of distribution and service management can also be done off shore rather easily, thanks to the information management technology companies,. (very simple example: notice how many call centers are located off shore for any topic you can name). Not one of the business experts thinks about what happens when all those who actually builds stuff decide to raise prices and the US has NO industrial base to compete or counter. In case its lost on folks, even before Trump’s election, all those “benevolent” exporters of stuff to US shores were raising consumer goods prices. The cost hikes do not show up in the media because the term ‘inflation” was changed by Wall Street and Fed to hide the price hikes.

      They do understand. They are not stupid.

      The media is 100% owned shills for whatever position is paying them. The only opinion they have is the one that pays for their mortgage.

      The media and congress are consistently voted among the lowest respected positions in the country specifically because they are all paid liars, traitors and scum.

    I’ve known for a long time that Corn-hole Cornyn and Lyin’ Ted need to go. Texas should find some MAGA challengers to get rid of these 2 blights on our great state.

    Content origination rules within the auto-sector. Hmmm…

    Sounds like a prudent thing to put in place.
    Prudent!!! Yup prudent.

    Lets say PDJT is about to throw NAFTA out with the bath water. What happens to supply chains… everything goes into flux as they are readjusted. Right.

    Right, so you don’t want a little old “false” labling scheme that was invented in the first place as a reaction to NAFTA to bring the whole enterprise down.

    Cool. PDJT is smart. He is thinking….
    Get rid of false label and tariffs on steel and aluminum will invigorated American companies to re-enter the manufactor of these components… Thus leading to an outcome that will in reality lead to higher content of American sourced parts by DEFAULT.


    • thedoc00 says:

      There is not a nation in this world that does not have much higher national content regulations than are in NAFTA. They also use special anti-trust and special industrial base protection regulations to augment their national content laws.

  46. Not that this has anything to do with this article but what do I do to report if my comments are being screened on another site.

    I noticed over the past couple of months that on other sites I no longer see any responses ..also neither likes or dislikes.

    Not that anyone would ever not like me …dear me no! LOL

    In other words… what’s the follow up proceedure? Does anybody out there know?

    American First.
    America’s sovereignty.

    POTUS made these slogans the basis of his campaign.
    POTUS said he’d never let us down.
    No NAFTA. No “dirty tricks” NAFTA.
