The Locusts

The ignoramus in chief spoke today about the caravan from Honduras that was coming our way.

He made them sound like  locusts that were inexorably eating their way to the North.

That’s a hoot.

He threatened the government of Honduras that there would be hell to pay if they didn’t stop the caravan.

Who is he kidding?

Such threats underscore Trump’s complete misunderstanding of US foreign policy in the region.

Well, when you stopped reading after the age of twelve, what do you expect?

It is US foreign policy via CAFTA, the Central American Free Trade Agreement that is responsible for this caravan.

CAFTA is a product of the New World Order.

The New World Order is about free trade, and free trade is about exploitation.

The people of Central America are being exploited.

They work for slave wages in a polluted environment riddled  with gangs thanks to Corporate America.

Who wants to work in that?

Nobody.

The people come here for a better life they know they will never get there.

It’s for a good cause though  – the rich get richer and you get poorer.

What will work for these people, what will stop the caravan is a reversal of the New World Order.

What will work is the stopping of exploitation of foreign peoples.

There was a President who had a great vision for the United States. His name was John Kennedy. The New World Order did not like his vision of enabling peoples from foreign countries, and so they killed him.

They did it through their Central Intelligence Agency which is the private army of the New World Order.

Why do you think puppets of the New World Order in the media continually support Lee Harvey Oswald as the man who shot John Kennedy?

They do so because they don’t want you to know who the real killers were, that being the New World Order.

When you realize that, the massive immigration from Central America will stop. Until that point, say hello to your new brothers from the south.

You get the government you choose to believe in. 

If you believe in lies, my friend, you get to lie down in the bed that those lies support.

The Beauty of Free Trade

Have you ever wondered why these immigrants are pouring north from Central America?

If you are like me you probably are under the impression that they are running away from MS 13 gangsters.

If you thought that, you would be right.

But why does Central America produce these MS 13 gangsters?

Look no further than your United States government which has been hijacked by Corporate America.

Corporate America is responsible for pushing through CAFTA or the Central America Free Trade Agreement.

You’ve heard of NAFTA; well,  meet its brother, CAFTA.

CAFTA Is an unwanted interloper in central America.  The citizens there didn’t want it at all.  They knew what it would bring.

And what it has brought is what all free trade brings – poverty, pollution, violence and slave wages.

Free trade has been a disaster for Central America, and that is why these people are leaving.

When economic times are bad, when people have shitty jobs, gangs abound.

Who wants to raise their children in the midst of gangs?

That is why these mothers with kids in tow have to come to the United States of America.

You heard about the caravan a few months ago that was slowly moving through Mexico on its way to the border?

Desperate people will give up everything for a better chance in life.

They will give up their homes, their extended families, the possessions they own, even their native language.  

They will risk death and robbery on the road.

They will risk discrimination when they get here, for in the United States of America they will get some protection from these gangs.

In addition, if they have a child who was born in the United States, that child will be a citizen of the United States and will enjoy a life their parents could only dream of.

Who will pay for all of this?

You the American people. Who will profit from all this?

Corporate America.

Free trade is a welfare program for greedy corporations that you pay for.

Why Doesn’t Free Trade Work

Everybody talks about free trade, but no one talks about why it doesn’t work.

It doesn’t work because its real name is free greed or free exploitation.

Free trade didn’t work a thousand years ago, or five thousand years ago; and it doesn’t work today.

It doesn’t work because free trade taken to its absurd extension permits one corporation to make all products for everyone all over the globe for slave wages. Free trade works against small and medium sized businesses and in time wipes these competitors off the map. The larger corporations having greater financial resources and, of course, unquenchable thirst for money, have the resources to buy off politicians who can institute expensive and cumbersome regulations that small competitors can not meet. The same politicians can also be “persuaded” to look the other way as employees are being brutalized. This arrangement does not take into account man’s basic desire, need and right to contribute meaningfully to society.

The free trade that America engages in today with Indonesia is a classic example. There workers, outside the control of the US government, toil for sixteen hours per day in a standing position for the grand sum of two dollars per day. Yet the products they ship back to America are just as costly as they were when Americans made those products. Furthermore, because these products are made overseas, average Americans, without work, turn to drugs, violence and criminal activity. They also become welfare recipients. This produces a drag upon society. So, not only do Indonesians not win, Americans lose as well. Indonesians become slaves to corporations as Americans become slaves of the state. The state working in concert with the larger corporations does little to solve the problem save talk.

What does work is fair trade where, within reason, 80% of a nation’s goods are made within that nation. Such an arrangement permits average people and small to medium businesses to live a productive life. It recognizes man’s essential need and right to live a meaningful life where he can contribute to the betterment of his nation. Sadly, free trade does not do that.

Free trade works for the rich, not you. Free trade permits the rich to live their fantasy lifestyle of possessing mansions all over the globe, mansions fully staffed and ready to go for when the great man graces us with his presence. This is what free trade is all about.
