Three Reasons Why a New NAFTA Should Not Last Forever


Crony capitalists and globalists want a flawed trade agreement immune from updates, sensible revisions

Back in 1993, there was a major debate about the first big, modern trade agreement called the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Promises were made about job creation, economic growth, a win-win agreement. NAFTA passed.

The next year, Mexico crashed. Presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio was assassinated on videotape. Maya Indian rebels marched out of the forest declaring NAFTA a death sentence for Mexico's Indians, setting off the most serious guerrilla uprising in a generation. Subcomandante Marcos wrote a love letter to newly elected president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León stating, "Welcome to the nightmare." Mexico devalued the peso, causing an economic crisis. Mexico has never recovered.

The Trump administration is reportedly considering a proposal that any new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) be temporary, rather than permanent. Crony capitalists and globalists are ramping up their opposition, claiming the need for "business certainty" as they continue offshoring our economy and jobs. [more...]

U.S. Navy Ongoing Investigations

Relieving the commander of Combined Task Force 70 and the commodore of Destroyer Squadron 15 is consistent with the Navy’s tradition of holding officers responsible for events that occur under their command and over which they have control.  But while relieving officers strengthens accountability, it does not, it cannot, address the root of the problem which is that American seapower is over-stretched. At the end of the Cold War, the U.S. combat fleet numbered approximately 600 ships. Today we have 276. The requirements that the Navy is asked to fill have been increasing steadily since a few years after the Cold War ended. Yet, our elected representatives in both the legislative and executive branches of government have acted in recent administrations as though the U.S. military has not been affected by underfunding, reduced budgets and legislative caps that effectively prevent corrective action.  The problem today is not only the size and modernization of the fleet, but the political will to restore American seapower so that it can meet the multiplying requirements expected of it.


America Needs a Tax Reformation

In today’s struggle between globalist collectivism and nationalist individualism, we need more than tax reform. We need a Tax Reformation that again puts the individual taxpayer above the government and reasserts the ancient Roman Cicero’s motto that the good of the people is the highest law. Government is supposed to serve us, not overtax our achievers to serve the greed of selfish politicians and the state. The United States, which began as a free enterprise nation, now imposes a 35 percent tax rate on businesses, the highest among advanced countries. [more...]


CA Dems Protect Child Rapists and Fight Trump

California legislators compulsively generate bills that are immune to math, laws, precedent or legality. And that can only produce a complete and utter disaster if they are implemented. And they wouldn’t have it any other way. In addition to the multiple gratuitous legislative attacks on President Trump, which are as bizarre as they are unprecedented, there was a bill, introduced by Senator Scott Wiener of San Francisco, to remove sex offenders from the sex offender registry. Wiener claimed that the sex offender registry was homophobic. The bill, which passed, will allow child rapists to be removed after 20 years, and gives child pornography distributors a pass after 10 years. [more...]


UC Berkeley to Shut Down Campus for Free Speech Week

A faculty letter addressed to the UC Berkeley campus and the Berkeley community at large is calling for a complete boycott of classes and campus activities during the upcoming “Free Speech Week," which will feature conservative speakers whose very names inspire college students to seek safe spaces and therapy. The Berkeley paper, The Daily Californian, reports that the letter was co-written by seven faculty members, including Michael Cohen, a campus associate teaching professor of African American studies. The letter urges fellow faculty members to take three steps: cancel classes and tell students to stay home; close buildings and departments and allow staff to stay home; and not penalize students who are afraid of coming to campus. The letter was signed by 132 campus faculty members from various departments, and by 56 individuals who aren’t part of the UC Berkeley faculty. [more...]


A Sanctimonious Jennifer Gets an “F”

While out promoting her new movie, “Mother,” Jennifer Lawrence suggested that the devastation in Texas and Florida, which was caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, was “Mother Nature’s revenge and wrath” due to the sizable portion of the American people that had voted for President Trump and had failed to embrace the theory of man-caused global warming. Lawrence had already alienated many would-be filmgoers with her avid support of Planned Parenthood and participation in a video this year against any de-funding for the abortion provider. [more...]


Trump ‘Winging it’ with the Democrats

President Trump’s sudden and unexpected moves over the last two weeks to side with Congressional Democrats - Charles Schumer and the much-reviled-on-the-right Nancy Pelosi - on raising the debt limit ceiling and the general thrust of immigration reform was yet another example of a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants decision-making process that has so far resulted after more than seven months with virtually no legislative accomplishments.

U.S. Navy Compromised... May Not Be Prepared for NK Attack

The distinguished author of the new bestselling book, Seablindness: How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About ItFmr. Deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy Seth Cropsey, speaks out about the situation in North Korea.  In his new book, he exposes how years of underfunding has left our nation’s most strategic arm of defense - American naval power - smaller today than any point since before World War I.

Cropsey says, “We had two collisions this summer between U.S. Navy ballistic missile defense-equipped destroyers and merchant ships.  Replacements for those two ships are necessary.  Replacing is far more difficult with the smaller fleet that seablindness has produced.  Also, if hostilities were to occur, the U.S. would be very hard-pressed to conduct sustained combat operations against North Korea without pulling ships from other hotspots around the world.  And other potential adversaries could well see an opportunity if we were removing ships from, for example, the Arabian Gulf or the East Mediterranean to answer the demand off the coast of N. Korea.  If this happened, Iran and ISIS would be delighted.”

Overhaul NAFTA or Walk Away

We sent a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday, urging him to reject calls to merely “tweak” or “modernize” the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The letter states: “we support administration efforts to overhaul NAFTA or walk away. Voters did not choose a presidential candidate to merely ‘tweak’ or ‘modernize’ NAFTA. They want a fundamentally new direction in trade deals.” Our letter outlines how a new NAFTA can make American strong rather than weak and includes 12 specific recommendations with a focus upon trade imbalances and currency misalignment. [more...]

Will Trump Run in 2020 as a Republican?

If you thought the 2016 presidential election was an historic race with some unexpected twists and turns, just wait until the 2020 presidential election when the Trump run for reelection might completely shock you. It looks increasingly like the 2020 presidential election will be even more tumultuous than even the surprising 2016 election. Why? There are many dynamics at play; and critical battles are shaping up as we move toward the mid-term 2018 Congressional elections. [more...]


9/11 - We Forgot

In the weeks following 9/11, American flags flew on every corner. Athletes and fans couldn’t manage to hold back tears as they stood proudly for the national anthem before game time. Volunteers nationwide gave a helping hand to our courageous first responders, still searching for survivors, and clearing the still smoking rubble from the blood-soaked streets. You couldn’t go anywhere without seeing someone wearing a FDNY or NYPD hat out of respect for our heroes. We were fearful and we were sorrowful, but mostly, we were united, by our American identity. We made a vow to those we lost that we would “Never Forget.” Flash forward 16 years and it’s as if we’ve entered the Twilight Zone. Not only have we forgotten that which we promised we would not, but the national pride which once unified us has been replaced by an endless stream of anti-American propaganda. [more...]

Breaking News: New Facts on 2012 Benghazi Attacks

STATE DEPT. ASKED EMBASSY SECURITY FIRM TO REPLACE BENGHAZI GUARDS ONE WEEK BEFORE ATTACK... AND THEN INSTRUCTED THEM TO REMAIN SILENT

CALL 516-735-5468 or e-mail Sandy to schedule interviews with Brad Owens, former army intelligence officer who was on the ground in Benghazi in 2012.

Watch this story on FNC’s Tucker Carlson. Go here now.

Eleven days before the attack on the U.S. Benghazi compound in 2012, the State Department asked Torres Advanced Solutions, an embassy security contractor, to replace the guard force then protecting the facility because it was the compound by its current contractor. The attack came just as Torres was gearing up to move in and take over the task of guarding the facility.

After the September 11th attacks destroyed the compound and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, the State Department instructed Torres and associates not to reveal that the request to move in and take over had been made.

In addition, the State Department demanded that Torres’s force be unarmed, just like the guard force then deployed. Torres objected and said that they planned to arm the guards anyway. The State Department also instructed them not to reveal the request that the guards be unarmed.

None of these facts have been disclosed previously.

Brad Owens, of Torres Systems, recounts these events, for the first time, on the Tucker Carlson Show on Fox News Channel tonight - Friday, September 8th.

This disclosure raises important new points about the Benghazi tragedy:

1. It shows that the State Department was fully aware of the vulnerability of the compound prior to the attack.

2. It reveals that the State Department had insisted that the compound’s guards be unarmed.

3. The instruction not to tell the truth about the request to deploy or the instruction not to arm the new guards raises a question as to whether the political need to protect the outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played any role in these instructions.

Brad Owens of the Torres Firm, who was personally on the ground in Benghazi six months before the raid and was in charge of gearing up to take over the guard duty.

Trump Sets Stage for DACA Legislation

President Trump made a brilliant move in so many ways. He did not - as the liberal media claim - kill DACA. It turns out Trump knows more about the Constitution than supposed “constitutional law expert” Barack Obama. All immigration laws must come from Congress... period. The president has no right to make immigration law via executive action. Obama knew that. He just didn’t care. On numerous occasions early in his presidency, Obama stated publicly he had no power to make immigration law or save the so-called “Dreamers.” All Trump did was correct Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional action ... follow the letter of the law ... hand it back to Congress ... and publicly challenge and embarrass inept, incompetent, corrupt GOP congressional leaders such as Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do their job. And here’s the big one: Trump just started a first round of negotiations on DACA. [more...]


The Equifax Storm

Equifax, the Atlanta-based company – one of America’s three giant credit reporting agencies – announced this September that hackers had penetrated its computers and stole data for at least 10 weeks before being detected on July 29. What these hackers stole, Equifax reported, were the names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, and other data of 143 million “customers” – nearly half the U.S. population. (“Customers” is in quotes because you likely never asked or agreed to be an Equifax customer, and you have no ability under current law to make them stop gathering personal financial data about you.) This attack struck 143 million Americans (most of whom have not yet felt it) and could put our nation underwater for years to come – perhaps even drown our personal and national economy and prosperity. [more...]


Clooney & Lawrence Alienate Potential Moviegoers

Two of Hollywood’s top celebrities just offended tens of millions of would-be moviegoers with their ill-timed politically charged remarks and over-the-top rants about our current president. In so doing, the duo may have placed their box-office potential in some serious jeopardy. After the public gets wind of their remarks and the box-office results for their respective movies come rolling in, both stars may need to seek the shelter of a “happy place,” complete with gumballs, Kardashian pics, and a pair of matching binkies [more...]


The Financial Toll of Two Major Hurricanes

Within the span of 2 weeks, U.S. shores have been hit by 2 major hurricanes. Harvey which hit Texas and Southwest Louisiana in late August, and Irma making its way through the Florida coast. With the devastation left in their path, the question now is what is the financial toll on the U.S. after 2 major disasters? The toll for Harvey’s destruction is estimated to be anywhere between $70 and $90 billion, with only $35 billion protected by insurance, by RMS a disaster modeling firm. Analysts have predicted that Irma’s financial toll can reach up to $172 billion in the U.S. alone. Countries in the Caribbean are expected to see cost of up to $65 million from Irma alone.

Judge Orders Maryland Bar to Investigate Hillary Chief of Staff

A Maryland judge ordered the state bar to open an investigation Monday into the three lawyers who helped former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delete her private e-mails. Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said the complaints lodged against David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were egregious and the state bar couldn’t dismiss them as frivolous. “There are allegations of destroying evidence,” Judge Harris said at a hearing Monday morning. Mills was Hillary's Chief of Staff. She was also one of the Clintonworld vets being covered by the corrupt Comey immunity deal. From Benghazi to the Hillary e-mail scandals, Mills was on point.

Hating Israel at the Center for Jewish History

The Center for Jewish History claims to hold “the largest repository of Jewish historical documentation outside of Israel.” But now the Center has fallen into the hands of an anti-Israel activist who attacked efforts to fight campus anti-Semitism and defended a hate group promoting anti-Semitic speakers. It’s hard to find a group opposed to the Jewish State that David N. Myers, the new head of the Center, hasn’t endorsed, participated in or been a part of. JVP, an anti-Semitic BDS hate group, listed Myers as a JVP Academic Advisory Board Member in its leaflet accusing Jewish activists of “Misusing Anti-Semitism Charges to Silence Free Speech.” Why would JVP be concerned about accusations of anti-Semitism? Not only is the BDS hate group violently opposed to the Jewish State, but it sponsored talks by Alison Weir, who had claimed that Jews drank Christian blood and engaged in the ritual murder of Christian children during the Middle Ages. [more...]


Can We Survive Another Obama-Type “Red Line” with North Korea?

We have tried diplomatic measures with North Korea for years. We have paid them, given them FREE fuel, and much more... to no avail. North Korea’s actions show a total contempt for anyone or anything but North Korea. To allow them to continue along the path they have chosen would mean we allow them to, at minimum, hold the whole area hostage to the whims of their sick little dictator. Handling North Korea the same way we have for decades is nothing shy of insanity. President Trump was elected to conduct business in a different way - to actually protect us... to speak for the people. I’m thinking a new Great Lake is in the making: Lake North Korea. [more...]


European Supermarket Removes Crosses from Packaging to ‘Respect Diversity’

Although the German supermarket giant Lidl was caught erasing crosses from packaging to show “respect for diversity” ... searching the company’s product range online appears to show a number of items with are certified as Halal - which is to say, slaughtered in accordance with controversial Islamic religious requirements, so as to be permissible for devout Muslims to eat. Other Islamic symbols were also discovered on the company’s products. So, the “respect for diversity” apparently excludes Christianity. [more...]


Gas Price Spike Following Harvey

Gas prices hit an annual high this past Labor Day as refineries work to get back up and running after shutting down due to Hurricane Harvey. On Monday, the nationwide average for gas was $2.64, almost 20 cents higher that the average of $2.45 seen the previous Thursday. A report from The Energy Department stated that 8 refineries in Corpus Christi and Houston are working on getting started after the shutdown and 4 in the gulf are working at reduced levels. The drop in supply is causing a rise for demand for gas, making it an opportune time for oil producers to raise prices; but when fuel prices rise, so do the prices for many other goods and services in our economy.
