Earlier today Nancy Pelosi was questioned about why the House was not voting to pass the USMCA trade agreement. Speaker Pelosi immediately fell back upon her talking point: “we are working toward yes.” This is complete hogwash. There are no discussions. Pelosi is doing what Pelosi does best, politicizing anything positive for the U.S. economy in a concerted effort to undermine Trump in 2020.
Here’s what is going on.
Trudeau’s government ideologues agreed not to call the USMCA up for a vote in the Canadian parliament.
Speaker Pelosi is waiting to see if Trudeau can win re-election. If Canada re-elects Trudeau on October 21st, Pelosi will announce the labor provisions are not strong enough within the USMCA deal; discussions with the Trump administration are not resolving the issues; the U.S. workers are not protected enough, and she is tabling any vote.
Speaker Pelosi will then wait until after the 2020 election. The purpose is political.
Ratification of the USMCA would be a boost for the U.S, and North American, economy. More growth in the economy is politically adverse to her interests. Part of the 2020 Democrat strategy is to stall the U.S. economy, stoke a recession narrative, and hopefully weaken President Trump’s re-election bid. That’s the plan.
For Canada’s part of the scheme, Justin Trudeau -if successfully reelected- will announce that Canada is waiting for the U.S to work out the USMCA labor disagreements. This is the quid-pro-quo between liberals in the democrat party and liberals in Canada.
However, if Trudeau loses the election then Pelosi loses her partner in the plan. As a consequence Canadian ratification of the USMCA will be certain, and it will be outside the control of U.S. Democrats…
So, if Trudeau loses the election Nancy Pelosi will bring the USMCA to a vote timed with the impeachment vote. This plan allows democrats to try and dilute the political nature of the impeachment scheme by referencing the Trump administration USMCA vote as an example of Democrats not being political. This is how they scheme.
If it does not benefit Democrats, it simply is not done.
Yes, this is what Democrats spend 100% of their time doing… This is how they roll. 24/7/365 constant planning and political strategy sessions to best exploit and shape events to their narrative. Here’s the talking points if Trudeau loses on Oct 21st:
…’See, we’re not politically motivated, we’re giving the same president we are impeaching a win; because this trade deal is in the best interest of America. Just like the impeachment of this corrupt president is in the best interest of America’….
This is why it is so frustrating trying to communicate with and work with Republicans.
As a group they are the worlds worst strategists; most often, intentionally so. The right side of the UniParty prefers to be the party in controlled-opposition because Wall Street pays them better for their votes, and their constituents are oblivious to the construct.
It’s a big club….
