It was the tariff comment heard around the world. Global markets staged a predictable temper tantrum as the Establishment Media spun it all as an American president who continues to go “too far” in his America-first approach when Donald Trump dared to do what he said he will do (for the last three decades) and slap tariffs on those nations who have for too long been abusing the system and costing U.S. jobs.
“Free” trade and open borders are the foundations of the globalist regime. It allows cheap labor, (often under grueling working conditions) and an international corporatist system that increasingly enjoys power beyond that of nations. It is power that is never voted on, so answers to no-one. Everything is bought and paid for – including the politicians who continue to pass the laws that then expand the power of the globalists while lessening the power of the people those politicians pretend to serve.
And then came a billionaire New Yorker who shook his head and said ENOUGH.
Donald Trump pushed past the Republican Establishment and remarkably did the same against the entire political and media establishment in America to win the White House.
Now he sets his sights on the global establishment – an even more difficult and dangerous task.
Over the last thirty years America’s capacity to truly defend itself has lessened considerably because its factories have closed. Its people no longer make things. We peddle in distraction, convenience, and entertainment, but the ability to sustain itself as was done during World War Two has fallen into dangerous disrepair.
We are a country that now spends more time and resources teaching its students about gender identity than how to use a hammer – or a can opener.
Corporations relocate for one simple reason – it’s cheaper to do so. It is cheaper to build a factory in China or India, or Malaysia, or Mexico than it is to keep that factory here in the United States. Why? Because they then have access to very cheap labor, no unions, no healthcare costs, often no environmental regulations (and those that do exist easily go away via bribes to the government) and on and on and on.
True American liberals should be appalled by the above scenario – but they are not. (Too focused on gender identity perhaps?) Globalization is raping the environment and the people of those nations whose labor is being used to do so.
Donald Trump’s message cuts across political lines. It’s common sense. Create an America that helps to create jobs for Americans. Doing so then expands the tax base to afford things like better healthcare access, a cleaner environment, more opportunity, greater sustainability, and an overall improved quality of life that can be passed from one generation to the next.
Because he threatens the status-quo, Mr. Trump has been vilified to the extreme. At every turn, he faces opposition and mockery by those who have been lining their pockets under the globalist regime for a very long time. (Consider this: the Clintons left the White House in 2001 owing money. Seventeen years later they are worth an estimated $60-$100 million dollars. How does that happen? Simple. They became very willing mouthpieces of the globalist agenda. Their wealth was payment for a job well done. Barack Obama is doing the same thing but possibly on an even greater scale. His wealth already sits at nearly $20 million dollars just a year removed from the White House – a 20x increase from before he became President and within just the next five years he will likely be pushing $100 million. Not bad for a politician who spent years speaking out against “the wealthy.” )
Donald Trump is now shrugging off the mountain of criticism he is receiving for his steel and aluminum tariff plan. He is convinced no nation on earth can win a trade war with the United States and soon it will result in a much better trade environment that will put American workers first instead of the pockets of the globalists.
This will only escalate the war against him of course. Watch for Mueller to double his efforts the President’s family and business interests. That shoe is said to be scheduled to drop within the next few weeks.
It has been said before but is worth repeating: No leader of America’s modern era has personally risked so much to try and help so many as Donald Trump has.
