Mexico To Award Nation’s Highest Honor To Jared Kusher for Efforts Around USMCA Trade Negotiations…

A small but interesting development in the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico highlights a backstory CTH suspected several months ago {Go Deep}. August 25th:

As USTR Robert Lighthizer was working with the trade officials representing outgoing Mexican President Peña Nieto, White House adviser/emissary Jared Kushner was quietly working behind the scenes with AMLO trade adviser Jesus Seade and outlining the possibilities if they partnered with strategic economic objectives in mind.

As a result of Kusher’s dogged efforts to bring an entirely new dual-nationalist ‘focus’ within the trade construct, removing the historic globalist baseline, the outcome of the trade deal is excellent for both the U.S. and Mexico.  So today:

MEXICO – […] Kushner will receive the prize “for his contributions to achieve the negotiation of the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA),” according to a statement by Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretariat.

Peña Nieto will present Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, with the award on Thursday at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina, according to the Reforma newspaper.

“Mr. Kushner’s participation was a determinant factor to start the process of renegotiation of [the North American Free Trade Agreement], avoiding a unilateral exit by the United States from said treaty, and his constant and effective involvement was key in achieving a successful close of negotiations,” reads the official statement on the award.

It’s likely to be Peña Nieto’s last major act as president, as he is due to hand over power to President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Saturday. (read more)

It will take time for Mexico to withdraw from prior corrupt agreements with multinational corporations who have invested in exploitative enterprise and bribed corrupt Mexican officials.   President Trump is EXACTLY the guy AMLO needs to help guide him through a complex business and economic process of extracting his country from the tentacles of economic exploitation.

BACKSTORY CTH September 2018: […]  Previous Mexican Presidents structured economic policy around accepting multinational corporate investment, facilitating the requests of Wall Street investment banks, and the predictable parasitic outcomes that follow. Exfiltration of wealth and exploitation of resources/labor are an outcropping of predatory multinational trade exploitation, ie. “globalism”.

Retention of the multinational schemes generally leads to massive corruption. In the U.S. this corruption is known as “lobbying”, in Mexico the process is called ‘bribery’; however, the activity is the same.

The incoming Mexican President, Lopez-Obrador (AMLO), is more of an economic nationalist; and quite remarkably his economic outlook, at least as his team has described the objectives so far, is quite Trumpian.

You might even say: “Make Mexico Great Again”.

Both U.S. President Trump and Mexican President-elect AMLO have similar outlooks toward predatory multinational corporations and economic exploitation. If you think about how Mexico was used by the multinationals in the past twenty years; and then think about a very real possibility of a U.S President and Mexican President having an economic friendship; well,… holy cats, those multinationals could be remarkably nervous right now.

AMLO supports labor and has an actual agenda to create a strong working-class or middle-class.  The wealth disparity within Mexico has always been a foundational issue that has led to a tremendous amount of corruption.

Similarly, President Trump supports labor.  Likely because of his positive relationships with labor unions as a private sector builder, Trump was the only republican candidate who advanced pragmatic opinion toward organized labor in 2015, 2016 and, as president, in White House meetings where he invited labor officials.  President Trump’s economic agenda is laser focused on a strong middle-class.

AMLO views Wall Street multinationals as predatory by disposition; Mexico has suffered from industrial exploitation, especially in the agriculture sector.  President Trump also views those same multinationals as tending toward predatory behavior, and he has targeted many specific corporations for attention due to their participation in the erosion of the American middle-class and the U.S. manufacturing base.

AMLO is a strong Mexican Nationalist. President Trump is a strong American Nationalist. Within almost all of President Trump’s foreign policy speeches on economics, he openly accepts that all nations should make decisions based on their individual and nationalistic needs.  Trump does not see economic nationalism as adversarial; he points out that trade agreements based on both interests are entirely possible, and actually easy to construct.

As long as AMLO stays away from the authoritarian tendencies of power, ie. government ownership of private industry – and the slippery slope of soft-Marxism, surprisingly he and President Trump are likely to have a great deal more in common than most would think. Both populists; both nationalists; both rebuke the elitist trappings of globalism and intend on executing economic policies for the majority of their citizens.

Because they have more in common on the economics of policy, this explains why the framework of the U.S-Mexico trade agreement between Robert Lighthizer (representing Trump) and Jesus Seade (representing AMLO) was possible to construct.

Lighthizer and Seade held long meetings after formal U.S-Mexico daily negotiations, and together this relationship appears to have been very important in how the deal framework was structured. Right now both teams are filling in the details based on common objectives.

With AMLO and President Trump, Mexico and the U.S. have joint-interests in an economic trade bloc. It is actually quite stunning when you think about the economic power that both nations can hold if their mutual and individual interests remain at the forefront.

President Trump and President Lopez-Obrador have common objectives; and with the economic approach outlined by AMLO toward using Mexico’s energy resources as leverage for expanded investment, the U.S. is well positioned to help.  Mexico needs independent collateral to break the cycle of dependency on overseas money (investment).  Mexico needs policies and partners that can make Mexico, and the Mexican people, independently wealthy.   Guess who the bestest partner would be?  Yup, President Trump.

President Trump is well positioned to assist Mexico via a united trade bloc with expanded cross-border investment for economic development.

AMLO wants a higher standard of living for Mexican workers; President Trump wants greater parity between Mexican workers and their U.S. counterparts. Heck, it was U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and USTR Robert Lighthizer who first proposed raising the Mexican minimum wage. Now both countries have agreed to an incremental Mexican minimum wage aspect of $16/hr within the auto sector.

Combining the wage aspect with the content and origination agreement, this has become a win/win for both AMLO and President Trump. The multinationals within the auto-sector might not like it, but they’ve already put a massive amount of money into plant and manufacturing investment in their existing Mexican footprint. They have no choice.

In an generally overlooked outcome the nationalist interests of Mexico, specific to AMLO, are very close to alignment with the nationalist MAGA agenda of President Trump.

The U.S. economy is expanding at an unprecedented rate, and Mexico prepares to surf the MAGAnomic tsunami known as Donald Trump.

President Trump can see that independent economic future for Mexico based on a partnership that protects the interests of both nations.  It certainly appears that AMLO can see the same vision.

Remarkable times.

    People are going to be completely shocked about the relationship our President will have with AMLO. The two share the most important thing in common. They are both Nationalists that were elected by the forgotten men and women in their respective countries.

    The piece that hasn’t yet transpired that is on the horizon is the collaboration between the two countries when it comes to Energy. Secretary Perry will be joining our VP in Mexico 🇲🇽 for the Inauguration on Saturday. The potential between both countries is absolutely staggering. Mexico 🇲🇽 has the ability to ship to either side of the world. Especially on the side of the Pacific Ocean. California, Washington and Oregon want nothing to do with Energy distribution. Mexico 🇲🇽 fills that void beautifully. There will be pipelines from Mexico 🇲🇽 into the USA 🇺🇸.

    That becomes another sector that will allow Mexicans to make a real salary. AMLO understands how important the relationship is for him and his people. I would not be shocked if Mexico 🇲🇽 helps to fund the WALL knowing how much it will payoff for them. They want nothing to do with the illegals currently in their country. If AMLO pitches it correctly, the people of Mexico 🇲🇽 will support it.

      Correct.. Mexico has rich offshore oil and gas fields along the southern and west rim of the Gulf of Mexico in the Bay of Campeche.. (Similar to the northern rim of the Gulf of Mexico..). If properly managed, their energy industry could lift their whole country out of poverty and move them into a competitive world economic trade position among nations.

      (I remember working in one of the most southern reaches of Texas offshore fields – I was amazed – while working I noticed ‘different’ sea life and tropical coral growing on the platform, ‘where the fck are we,’ I thought. I had found out we were closer to offshore Port Isabel than our departure port – way South. I chipped off a coral souvenir.. “Texas Coral”.. Brought it home to my girlfriend.. Now my wife.. She still has it..).

      Actually the whole rim of the Gulf of Mexico has fertile untapped oil and gas fields.. And that includes offshore Florida.. Don’t let the “experts” fool you.. The Florida side of the Gulf with its wide expanse of the continental shelf is an untapped oil and gas wonderland.. Future reserves..

      Flep, pipelines could easily make it a shorter stretch from West Texas to the Mexican Pacific coast than a similar pipeline over the Rockies to the Pacific coast. Much less expensive to build. This is a huge missed opportunity by the Pacific states and not one that can be corrected easily. India wants that LNG, especially if they get most favored nation status.

      It would not surprise me if similar projects including intermodal transport moved decisively south to get better access to the central and eastern U.S. instead of getting bottlenecked in transit by Pacific-state regulations. Shorter overland routes are less expensive too. That being the case, the Port of Brownsville may be primed to become a major international shipping hub in addition to providing highly sought after access to the intercoastal waterway.

      This could be fun…

      Couple that with a Mexican-American Joint Venture to build a new Refinery in America for that expanded production.

      This creates joint value, prevents cartels from extorting refinery profits and prevents a future Mexican administration from nationalizing the American stake in the production Joint Ventures.

          America is already the third most populous nation on earth, behind only China and India. Resulting environmental and infrastructure stresses are a further cost to making other people’s dreams come true.

          Part of the stabilization of Mexico and upwards living standards of Mexicans, if that’s what this deal is about, has to involve them staying in their own country. The answer to the problems of the Third World cannot continue to be that everyone has a fundamental human right to move to America, as AMLO himself said, not so long ago.

          Ray, I completely agree. Mexicans, especially first and second generation, are economic drivers in the Texas economy. Many are highly motivated and very entrepreneurial. They have integrated very well in Texas and made Texas a better place. The problem, in my opinion isn’t legal Mexican immigration, it is unchecked illegal immigration of anyone from anywhere across our pourous border with Mexico. Those illegals are not vetted for criminal histories and, as a result of their illegal status, can’t own businesses, pay taxes or otherwise integrate into society. As our awesome President has said we need “A big wall with a big, beautiful door”.

It was easy enough for colleges and universities to set up “Education IRAs” to fund college indoctrination. For whatever reason, there are no “Parenting Savings Accounts” to allow people to save up for time off with offspring — which is not “retirement” by any means. I never worked as hard as my life as I did with young toddlers, you can’t take your eyes off for a minute or disasters can easily happen.

        I support contraception and family planning — and part of “family planning” is planning for your eventual family. I wanted to stay home with my babies — and did so, as much as I could, but also had to work my tail off at another part-time job when my kids were little, because our health insurance rates had gone through the roof 1985-1988 in relation to expenses of the AIDS crisis.

        Ivanka and Jared are wealthy, but not clueless like so many idealogical Republicans and Democrats.

        If people want the young generation to become parents, don’t saddle them with outrageous education loans; don’t set up things like rent control and landlord taxation that make homes impossible to buy for young families; and why not allow young people to save up, from their first paychecks onwards if they choose, to set aside funds for staying home with their eventual children. If people actually cared about children, our school systems and so much more would be very different…. lots of hot air, not much practicality.

When he’s with Ivanka they are coaching daddy from the sidelines on important cultural issues of the day like pre-existing conditions in healthcare and paid maternity leave. PDJT can have a tin ear for cultural issues, and Javonka provides a good (liberal) balance there.

            The younger set needs to learn the culture of our past. Very important that we move the popular culture back to the way it used to be, circa 1957. Not kidding. The three biggest social issues we have are political correctness, multiculturalism, and tolerance. In that order. All three must go away asap.

    If Trump can convince AMLO of the virtues of capitalis, perhaps he can keep him from going full commie. That alone would be a huge benefit to the US. A communist dictatorship on our southern border would obviously not be a good thing.

      “If Trump can convince AMLO of the virtues of capitalis”

      I am thinking before PDJT came along, AMLO probably figured the only way he could achieve what he wanted to do was through the path he was on. I don’t know, I never heard of him until he was mentioned here at CTH. HRC certainly would not help him the way the POTUS team has brilliantly done.

    With all of the backstabbers around President Trump, I am happy that he has a trusted advisor in Jared. He quietly goes about the business that must be done and does what he was sent to do. Competence is a valued character trait. I’m sure he is been on a mach 10, hair-on-fire learning curve with how quickly things are being done, there are very few government negotiations that are not complicated. You have to be able to know the subject matter in order to discuss it intelligently.

    Dad used to say, “you can be on the right track, and going in the right direction, but if you’re standing still you’re still going to get run over. Always keep moving forward, growing and learning. If you find someone that you highly respect copy their good traits.”

    This is not the first time he has come out of negotiations where everyone is happy with the deal.

    From what I had seen, he has a very respectful and calm demeanor, reassuring if you will.

    I think the people that he is dealing with in these countries feel comfortable with him as they know he has the President’s ear. It appears he is growing into his position beautifully.

      And he never tries to push himself forward and take credit. He always leaves the glory to others. His quiet personality is very different from Pres Trump but they compliment each other beautifully.

        Every time I watch a video or see a photo that includes Mr. Kushner and the POTUS, I pay attention to the dynamics and/or the body language. I believe Mr. Kushner not only loves his father like family (as he should), but also admires him greatly, even though their personal styles are very different.

        Thank you, Jared, for what you do for our country!

    All this in less than two years from January 2017! Could it be that via Kushner, Lighthizer, Seade, Trump-AMLO’s bootstrapping long benighted, much maligned Mexico to sector parity with U.S. industrial earners could spark a whole new sense of for-the-people prospects, suppressed for three decades by globulists’ [sic] post-Soviet Enarque Economies?

    Belay Iran, the Taiwan Strait, Ukraine… are these not all distractions from anarcho-syndicalist regimes’ relentless oligarchic spoliation? This generous vision, joining rival Mexican and U.S. interests to mutual benefit of their core constituents, is a profoundly peaceable and practical –vs. doctrinaire Cloud Cuckoo Land– development inspiring national and regional prosperity rather than Sarajevo-type fault-lines.

    Within two – three generations, humanity will have risen beyond Dustmote Earth in ways contemporary Terrans cannot conceive. In this respect, seemingly mundane trade agreements sow fertile seeds, not Dragon’s Teeth, to spare us Armageddon for all time.

    Trump has suggested if Mexico can’t control the caravans he will back out of USMCA. Giving Jared an award is Mexico’s way of attempting to lock in the deal. Afterall, how can you back out of a deal we have already given you such prestigious recognition for? Btw, bet you Jared is beaming at the dinner table tonight over the prestige.

      Considering some of the things out of his mouth on the campaign trail, nah, I still don’t really trust him (then again, I really don’t trust most people).
      But thus far he appears to be more pragmatic than the initial survey indicated — let’s hope he stays that way (it really is a better policy for him, and politicians do love to stay in power once they get it; here’s to guarded optimism).

    His recent interview with Van Jones was very impressive, also.

    Just yesterday, during the prison reform roundtable in Mississippi, Lindsey Graham gave major props to Jared. He told him if the bill passes, it will be due to his (Jared’s) determination and work.

    I just figured Kushner is a pointless hanger-on, given a made-up job so he can continue to hang out with his father-in-law and feel important. I’m glad to be proven wrong about him. Nice work, Mr. Kushner. This deal will have far-reaching positive impacts for both Mexico and the US. That’s a lot to be proud of.

  26. There goes SD with another excellent essay on Nationalism. An important pillar of Nationalism is ending corruption. AMLO has always been a strong anti-corruption champion, and that’s a big reason both he and PDJT were elected. The Swamp is just another cartel, and both are tools for the exfiltration of wealth. I suspect we may see MX get strong on curtailing migration, while the US helps MX contain the cartels and gov’t corruption. A deal (with a Wall) that works for the interests of both nations.

    It was Lighthizer that fought for our interests, and the award that matters to me personally is that one Mexican official’s words when they were announcing the deal, when he looked wearily at the cameras and commented how tough Lighthizer was. It’s good that Trump uses other emissaries to smooth the waters and help consummate a deal, but let’s remember the deal is the thing, and it had to be on our terms, and it was Lighthizer who executed that task.

    Maybe AMLO leans towards Stalin’s doctrine of “Socialism in One Country” rather than Trotsky’s worldwide (globalist) one.

    They’re both failures, but I’ll argue the current globalist element in place is more dangerous due to its ability to infiltrate institutions around the world. At least you’ll know what the nationalist wants (even if they won’t ever admit to being one)
