U.S. Chamber of Commerce Launches Yet Another Financial Campaign Against U.S. Workers and Main Street…

Today U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue announced another campaign to protect and defend his Wall Street contributors against initiatives that benefit Main Street U.S.A. This is not the first time, and unfortunately it will likely not be the last time.

For a great historic reference consider THIS ARTICLE from 2014; when the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced their direct attack against the Tea Party backed candidates that threatened to remove the massive lobbying power of Tom Donohue’s corrupt officials. That 2014 reference point has two parts. I strongly urge anyone who would defend the U.S. CoC approach to read both.

The overwhelming majority of economic punditry and opinion come from salespeople on the purchased payroll, direct and indirect, of the chamber. It is one of the most, check that, it is the most corrupt and abusive enterprise in the history of our nation. They are pulling out a very familiar playbook.

(Reuters) – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Monday denounced President Donald Trump’s handling of a global trade dispute, issuing a report that argued the tariffs imposed by Washington and retaliation by its partners would boomerang badly on the American economy.

The Chamber, the nation’s largest business lobby group and a traditional ally of Trump’s Republican Party, argued the White House is risking a global trade war with the push to protect U.S. industry and workers with tariffs.

The group’s analysis of the potential hit each U.S. state may take from retaliation by U.S. trading partners painted a gloomy picture that could increase pressure on the White House from Republicans ahead of congressional elections in November.

[…] The Chamber is expected to spend millions of dollars ahead of the November elections to help candidates who back free trade, immigration and lower taxes. It has already backed candidates who share those goals in Republican primaries. (read more)

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce consists of a massive multinational DC lobbying group that four consecutive administrations’ have allowed to write the actual language in U.S. trade deals and trade negotiations.  Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Bush, Obama, Obama all gave the U.S. Chamber of Commerce the keys to the U.S. economy, and walked away.  The U.S. middle-class was nearly destroyed in the process.

CTH has stood alone, for years, against the insufferable horde of CoC political mouthpieces and their media conscripts.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is at the corrupt center of almost every scheme that fund the Deep Swamp to the detriment of our nation. They are the most vile and insidious UniParty group of lobbyists in Washington DC.

Until Donald Trump came along, they held virtually unlimited power over the U.S. economy.  The Chamber is a cancer; and any politician who associates with that abhorrent group should be excised from existence with extreme prejudice.

    Good historical reprise regarding corporations’ baneful and collusive influence on public policy, however necessary these disembodied legal entities are to entrepreneurial free-market innovation, risk/reward.

    Sundance’s foresighted comment is well-taken, that Trump Prosperity through 2024 and after will rewrite the last half-century of crony-socialism’s Central Banker globulist consortia. Looking back to the late 1960s, it’s fair to say that nothing, absolutely nothing, these festering Deep State Enargues push has benefited anybody but themselves.

      Sundance…please see if there is anything to this…we now know obama’s catch and release was in full force for illegal aliens by 2014…and we also know an American version was in force for junior high & high school minority discipline problems – or as Obama said “ending the pipeline to prison”…now it appears something else happened in 2014 – a change to the language on professional testing and licensing documents regarding arrests or charges and the production of FBI reports from 20,30,40 year old incidents – including college & HS – revealing settled or dismissed matters suggesting the professionals “misrepresented the facts/truths”…my conspiracy directed mind believes this is/was another angle to further damage or destroy white collar professionals, to be replaced by cheaper foreign professionals, while neutralizing “white privilege”…oh yeah…and helping their America hating pals at the CoC.

    Fortunately for US the coc is still running last year’s playbook. It’s not working anymore. President Trump said they were full of lies. And then he proved it. It’s only in the bubble that anyone is listening to them anymore.

    From the best information I have been able to round up, in 2017, US automakers exported about 250,000 new cars to China. That is about 1.5% of the total new car sales in the USA for 2017. Not an insignificant number, but not the potential apocalypse one would expect if your only source of information is the Fake News and Criminals of Capitalism (COC).

    I still remember Ross Perot saying, “The only sound you will hear when NAFTA is signed is the giant sucking sound of jobs leaving the US.” He was so right. I have watched the deterioration of my country over the last 30-40 years. Think about all the politicians who have been in office over those years. The swamp encompasses both parties.

      And note how HE, unlike Trump, was successfully stopped by the swamp. Also note the kind of measures they used against him since, as Sundance has pointed out, TRILLIONS of dollars are always at stake.

        the swamp is the GLOBALISTS and their minions in DC and around the world in the media, every media mogul is a confirmed member of the global cabal, their only interest in our(the U.S.) well being is when they can profit from it, if they profit from betraying us it’s all the same. Selling off the USA has been massively profitable for them.

        They will beat the war drums of capitalism and pump the noise through every media channel, using euphemisms like “FREE TRADE” to disguise their contempt for Americans and kill our industrial base. Meanwhile their friends on the left in blue will explain why it’s a good thing that THOSE JOBS are never coming back and we shouldnt want them back!

        They have quietly worked to have their media drones spin ideas like “nationalism” to be considered evil, or the same as fascism. They push the idea that somehow tariffs are only bad if they are US tariffs, but other countries tariffs are insignificant or don’t exist. They continually deny the threat that open borders are to national security and downplay the promises of tougher border security that have been ignored by pols for the past 30 years.

        In Orwellian fashion they have redefined the treacherous betrayal by our past 3 presidents to equal “patriotism” and our own love of country to be an evil form of right wing extremism.

    Anger at and disgust with the COC may be one of the few truly unifying issues between the Left and the Rational in this country today.

    The Chamber of Commerce is tax exempt!!
    Now and then I wonder how I produced and closed over $100 million worth of construction jobs as a 2 to 5 man operation in my life.
    Yet I’m still a serf.

    Oh, I forgot.
    I didn’t make that stuff.

    The CoC is impotent only because they can’t buy Trump’s favor. You remember he ran on that in 2016 – that he’s rich enough and cannot be swayed with bribes. And would’ja look at that: Trump meant it. The CoC is over there frothing and seizing, yet our President remains steadfast and our Main Street economy is picking up for the first time in a generation.

    The irony of the actions being taken by the current Chamber of Commerce is that it actually violates their original charter. The Chamber of Commerce was founded to integrate the interests of business and community development together into a single body. As founded the Chamber was supposed to be a place where a business and its community environment were supposed to meet to seek mutual benefit. Over the years, the definition of “Community” has changed to focus on and represent the interests in of the political rules of the community.

    The only jobs Mitt Romney ever created was for scrap metal companies as he tore down American factories as jobs went to China.

      Imagine this scenario: The President of the United States isn’t owned by any persons, parties, or interests. The President of the United States understands how the global wealth machine works, and he’s not a fan. The President of the United States is a F-U kinda guy.
