Nancy Pelosi Hides Behind Richard Trumka as Excuse for Not Ratifying USMCA….

The U.S. multinationals on Wall Street do not want the USMCA to pass because they don’t want President Trump to have leverage that allows him to continue the fight against China and the EU. It is a simple dynamic, USMCA ratification makes the Wall Street prior investments in China worth less.

In all of these efforts U.S. multinational corporations, big companies on Wall St, are heavily opposed to President Trump because they have invested in those overseas operations. Those companies facilitated the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs.

Remember, in 2018 the Supreme Court ruled that non-union members cannot be forced to pay for union representation.

That decision led to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka declaring support in 2019 for illegal aliens having rights to U.S. jobs and collective bargaining.

There is also now a clear alignment between Wall Street multinationals, and democrats like Nancy Pelosi. Wall Street’s ability to pay Pelosi and political leadership to protect their multinational interests; in combination with corporate promises of funding to Pelosi’s party; has created the unholy alliance of united interests.

It is a political strategy and calculation for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to attempt to sink the U.S. Main Street economy. Weakening Trump’s China confrontation, blocking the USMCA, and impeding a trade agreement between the U.S. and U.K. are part of that calculation.

(Via CNBC) […]  Pelosi and Neal’s meeting with Trump’s trade representative follows talks with a key labor leader earlier this week. After a Tuesday meeting with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Pelosi said, “we can reach an agreement on USMCA when the Trade Representative makes the new NAFTA agreement enforceable for America’s workers.”

Their meeting with Trumka came a day after the labor leader said “we are not there yet” on an agreement. He added that “we cannot and support any deal that does not deliver for working people.”

The Trump administration needs to submit ratifying legislation to Congress for the House to move forward with approving the agreement. Once the White House submits text, it starts a 90-day window to approve USMCA.

Mexico has ratified the agreement, while Canada has not.

Labor groups and Democrats have worried the agreement will not go far enough to boost wages in Mexico and stop U.S. companies from moving jobs south.  (read more)

        So Teddy Kennedy was right when he started blathering about the rich getting richer, but he always forgot to mention the Hart-Celler Immigration Act of 1965 whenever he pointed to the injustice of it all. He worked tirelessly to make that bill law, and speaking on the Senate floor said, “our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset.” I’ll bet he even assured voters that the new plan would only boost wages for workers once it passed.

        I guess we had to pass the bill to find out what was in the bill…thirty years later.

              I’m thinking that some of his Harvard and Stanford pals, some even working their way up from entry level top management positions at the larger corporations, were concerned about the demographics of the American labor force, and its implications for future trends in the labor supply. They saw, rightly, that the tightening labor market could force employers to entice job hunters with higher wages and better working conditions. For them, this was not a positive trend for the future of sound management practices, as it seemed to be too much like…work. In Kennedy, they found a trusted friend and known advocate for fairness, whom they could trust to lobby Congress for an equitable solution.

      You have it totally wrong. The union members do not pay Trumka’s salary. Taxpayers pay Trumka’s salary. Taxpayer money is passed through to the union member who is taxed by the union in the form of union dues taken from their paycheck.

      AFLCIO is building trades. The end user of the building trades paying union wages is the Federal, State and local government. Private sector primarily does not pay union wages.

      If you know an AFLCIO union member, he or she is working for a company that is primarily working on government projects. Your tax dollars at work paying the highest possible labor price to get the job done.

      Any pressure put on government by the influx of uncontrolled immigration is a benefit to unions which primarily infect government. Therefore, Trumka is on the right side of the issue because it benefits the union. Need a new school or road? AFLCIO will be there to build it.

Well … in my humble, while USMCA is “better than NAFTA” in several key respects, “anything at all would be better than NAFTA,” and I really have always felt that our negotiators should have been able to do better. Yes, I want to see USMCA get approved if only to get NAFTA off the books, but I’m frankly disappointed in what they managed to come up with. I’m also a little surprised that Mexico approved it and Canada has not, since in my reading Mexico is still the one that winds up (still …) taking it in the shorts.

          Looks good on paper, but the discussions will require qualified translators who are fluent in both English and Liberal.

          Leafing through my Liberal to English Translator’s Dictionary at random, I found a few idiomatic definitions that could indicate a formidable language barrier, which may present challenges from the outset. For example, the English phrase, “I want nothing in return”, translates to the Latin, “quid-pro-quo” in Liberal. In another example, “requesting an investigation into corruption” translates to, “extortion”.

          The difference between two very distinct cultures is probably illustrated best by the way in which time is defined by each language. In English the concept of the past has many linguistic expressions, but in Liberal, no matter the context, any reference to events from the past always translate to 2020.

          Trump will have his work cut out for him, should he choose to engage in a constructive dialog with Ms. Pelosi, who is the current elected leader of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Congress. Evaluating her ability to understand traditional Western thought, as handed down to us from the Greeks, would be a good first step. I wish him the best in this pursuit.

      In their minds they did just fine, maybe terrific, or even awesome! The negotiators got rich, so they didn’t do anything wrong in their minds. American workers in their minds were lazy greedy sloths who needed to learn how to code software or flip burgers.

    Furthermore we are now learning the environmental controls that have been on steroids for years limiting the American Dream are what is making the latest crisis for more taxes. The higher MPG requirements by the EPA will result in a added mileage tax to replace the last of OPM to spend. Along with that does anyone think rates for any utilities consumed will not accompany increases rates to permit more collections? To that do not omit additional property taxes, waste water taxes as well any current legal manner to tax.

      Just a thought on your point that Trump / unions are not a point of support and a source to help create jobs in the USA.. So agree. I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, the second largest steel producer on the globe through out the 1950’s;.

      Unions crippled the mills after the sloven management abused labor for some historical generations. Environmental changes in the 1960’s, truly to address the proximal less than humane atmospheric conditions at the time, was a challenge that management and labor were unable to overcome. Gases and particulate matter were in need of improvement.

      Regulation required expensive manufacturing alterations while the burgeoning labor costs stripped the Youngstown Sheet and Tube of profits to install the “scrubbers” in the open hearth. Innovative electric electric furnaces developed in Youngstown / USA were sold to the new overseas competitors rebuilding / developing after WW II. Excessive labor cost had removed the option of installing the locally devised, non band-aid innovations.

      My point is POTUS Trump can afford to be a global labor boss in Mexico. USMCA can address a livable wage in the treaty. Nancy Pelosi and Trumka can be exposed as the water carriers of the Chi Comm investment crowd. Justin Amash can go live with Lucifer.

    Without an ability to delve into the weed of the USMCA, I would think Trumka’s direct concerns could be compatible with a revised USMCA. When the USMCA would provide guidelines for wage levels Mexican manufacturing facilities that would better provide for a living and thriving wage, an important component that causes the northward migration will have been ameliorated.

    Heck, if I could make a reasonable living, staying in place sounds much better than a trek north.

    Agreed, more components in the current Mexican political / economic culture are in need of alteration than a living wage, A living wage begins to provide a personal sense of independence and greater economic decisions.

    Trumka was formerly head of the United Mine Workers union. Once he became an insider and head of the AFL/CIO he was perfectly willing to sell his former brothers out. I see he now has a net worth of $8 million so I guess it has been well worth his betrayal /sarc.

    I’m not surprised Pelosi dropped this today. Per my previous comments, a number of high-stakes issues are linked. Pelosi had hoped that Trump would accept what we can call the Bill Clinton resolve. But this latest gambit, The Schiff Show, has gone exceedingly poorly for the Democrats.

    Pelosi hoped to entice Trump into a bargain — he gets USMCA in return for laying down on impeachment like Bill Clinton did.

    I also consider it anything but bad news that it’s Republicans, both in the House and Senate (see e.g. White House meeting about impeachment/Senate trial), talking about the inevitability of the House passing Articles of Impeachment. This is putting immense pressure on Pelosi, and the fiasco this week has cast the die that the House Democrats are on a partisan jihad against the duly elected POTUS. Indeed, adding to the self-defeating messaging on the Democrats part, the Democrats and their allied media assume by implication that all Democrat Senators will vote to convict.

    Two additional tidbits. First, am I the only one wondering whether some the witnesses Republicans wanted to call, but Schiff refused to allow, are mentioned in the soon to be released IG Horowitz report? Now that’s gonna be fun! Especially if House Democrats have already passed Articles of Impeachment deriving from the Schiff Show.

    Second, Pelosi and the Democrats are playing with fire in terms of the stock market. If they detonate it with an impeachment vote right before Christmas that will not be well-received. The risk is greatly compounded in that it might just continue to sell off, forcing Pelosi to give up the ghost in the worst possible manner on USMCA early next year.

    Will offer again an alternative view explained in previous comments.

    Canada has not ratified, either. The new parliament does not sit until (new Trudeau announcement) Dec 5. So until Canada acts there is no US urgency, Trumka excuses or not. USMCA was passed under fast track ( I am traveling, so away from legal notes previously posted) so NO changes are possible no matter what Trumka and Pelosi might want.

    Once Canada ratifies, PDJT can put the heat to Pelosi. Cancel NAFTA on six months notice that same day, the first day after 6 month implement a good for up to ten year bilateral USMCA equivalent with just Mexico. Under current law, Pelosi has NO say in that move.

    Translation, Pelosi can stall, and earn a bigger DO NOTHING brand. But she cannot win. The key here is Canada, not Pelosi.

    What an abhorrent woman. Who are you trying to kid Pelosi ? You know it would be another TREMENDOUS accomplishment for Trump and you would rather hold Americans hostage than to give them anything Trump led the charge for or that your former Kenyan bungled.

    You’re a sick disgusting woman.

    These union thugs are just starting to figure out what everybody is; the party is over. We, The Deplorables, love the truth and everyday we get more enlightened. Miss Lindsey can runaround like he’s the big watchdog but The Wheel of Fortune in Ukraine all occurred while Pappa John and him, McConnell and Ryan were supposed to be guarding the best interests of the American people.

    The AFL-CIO and SEIU are domestic terror organizations and should not be allowed to operate in the United States. There also needs to be a law that makes it illegal for any union to donate to any political party or to have any political affiliations at all.

    There are other Democrats who found their way to the Ukrainian piggy bank.

    Folks, the money is US tax payer dollars given the Ukriane in the form of aid, in America we call it laundering, tax payer aid to Ukraine comes back in Democrat pockets

    Didn’t Trumka just resign as president of the AFL-CIO?
