Tom Donohue and U.S. CoC Beg White House: Please Don’t Stop Buying From China, We’ll Lose Our Manufacturing Investments….

You knew it was going to happen… The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (President Tom Donohue) begins having apoplectic fits at the thought of even stronger Trump administration policies that might undercut their Chinese manufacturing investments.

The U.S. CoC is the biggest stakeholder of U.S. multinational companies doing business in China.  The Trump administration has been warning them for years to put America First in their business plans; and now with the Chinese Pandemic showing just how dangerous it is for critical manufacturing to be made in the U.S.A, chamber President Tom Donohue is pleading to keep the U.S. dependent on China.

Keep in mind, this is the EXACT SAME group who said the steel and aluminum tariffs were going to cause massive inflation driving up the price of all consumer goods and cars by thousands of dollars… It never happened; because the CoC are manipulative liars.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House plans to expand “Buy America” mandates to the medical equipment and pharmaceutical sectors could worsen shortages of urgently needed medicines and delay discovery of a vaccine for the new coronavirus, over 80 business groups warned.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and dozens of other business and trade groups urged U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and other top U.S. officials to drop plans for the order, arguing it would also damage U.S. trading relationship for years to come.

“Preventing federal agencies from sourcing medical equipment and pharmaceutical ingredients from abroad … would only exacerbate the supply shortages racking the United States,” said a letter from the groups, which was also addressed to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, a long-time trade hawk who is crafting the order, told Fox News late on Wednesday evening that he expected movement on the issue shortly. (read more)

Our battle against the U.S. Chamber of Crony Commerce has been ongoing for many years.  When Donald Trump came down the escalator, our initial support was based on the possibility President Trump would crush the influence of the CoC and all its minions.

Donohue is the disgusting bile, the residue, that remains after the pus is drained from the swamp.  Donohue is the pusher of a Wall Street toxic infection that damn near destroyed the economy of the United States.

The CoC were the primary architects of Clinton, Bush and Obama trade agreements including the insufferable TPP.   All three previous administrations sub-contracted the writing of trade agreements to Donohue and his corrupt Wall Street corporate cronies.

The CoC is by far the largest lobbying group in Washington DC and they spend tens of millions trying to retain their Chinese investments.  This group will never see quarter from us….

    I hate to be critical of the Chamber’s approach, but they’ve had almost 3-1/2 years now to develop a new political strategy since the Presidential candidate they attempted to defeat won the office.

    And it’s not like they didn’t know his views on international trade, if for no other reason than HE TOLD EVERYONE WHAT HE’D DO EVERY NIGHT on the campaign trail, specifically by restructuring our disastrous job killing trade deals with N America and China.

    So the Chamber and its Roundtable have no one to blame but themselves, and if their business leaders had any sense at all (which they haven’t displayed thus far), they would begin by immediately dispatching Mr Donohue!

      Donahue is over 80 years old. Time to retire. MAGA is the name of the game now. Change or get lost.

      According to the Wall Street Journal, Donahue’s most striking innovation has been to offer individual companies and industries the chance to use the chamber as a means of anonymously pursuing their own political ends.” Major corporations donate funds to the Chamber, earmarked for particular political topics, and the Chamber spends them under its own name.

      The Chamber is the largest lobbying group in the U.S., spending more money than any other lobbying organization on a yearly basis.

    No matter what country on Planet Earth you are, you should step into every negotiation “placing your own country First!™” (And you should presume that everyone else who’s sitting down at the negotiating table is, of course, doing the selfsame thing.) Because, if you don’t fight for your country’s interests, nobody else on Planet Earth will.

    It sounds so simple. In fact, it is so simple. How many treaties and other international agreements might we have avoided if the negotiators in question actually knew one damned thing(!) about the fine “Art Of The Deal?” 🤦‍♂️

    Only the local COCs are legit in towns around the country to help their own communities, but the national has a completely different agenda that undercuts the local chambers.

    There are certain organizations within the country that work against U.S. interests, and the COC and Business Roundtable are two of them.

    The China CCP flu has 2 golden linings once we get past the tragic premature deaths.

    First, HCQ has all the indications that it is effective against **all flues**. So, take your $Big $Pharma vaccines, but those that get the flu have HCQ to back them up and prevent death (average 35,000/year). Those are potentially a lot of lives to be saved.

    Second, the China CCP flu has proved that Globalism is a disaster. All those factories and high paying jobs will be returning. (So sorry CoC and CCP Globlists).

    These two golden linings in the dark and multi $trillion cloud may well pay for the economic damage.

    PS Maybe we can squeeze in another golden lining with the overhaul of the FDA and CDC along with the crony Medical-Pharma-Insurance industrial complex?
