For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN. Their four horseman of the American apocalypse; George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like. From NAFTA to TPP from the WTO to the T-TIP they have sought every opportunity to enroll us as just one more state in their fever dream of a super state with them in control.
Currently the United States has free trade agreements in force with 20 countries. These are:
- Costa Rica
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
The interesting thing about most of these agreements is that while we allow goods from these countries to enter our nation duty-free and compete with our own manufacturers our partners do not. They have various mechanisms to make sure our goods cannot compete in their markets. They add tariffs by any other name top our goods as the arrive and give subsidies to their goods as they leave.
This anything but level playing field that our leaders have subjected us to is economically the equivalent of playing Russian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol. It may be exciting but there isn’t any way to win.
Not only have we surrendered our ability to add tariffs to protect our markets against foreign disruption and the eventual destruction of our industrial base we have witnessed. It also deprives the federal government of a source of revenue which was once enough to run the whole affair without an income tax. It is not only these two negatives which point out the bad side of this bad deal. Our globalist leaders have also signed agreements that make American enterprises and individuals subject to the edicts of the bewildering array of organizations and boards which make up the strands designed to hold the American Gulliver down.
Finally in President Donald Trump we have a leader who wants to put America first! Finally we have a leader who is not dedicated to managing our decline but instead dedicated to our renewal. We have chosen a leader not to lead us gentle into that good night. Today we no longer must look at the sun setting upon us. Today we can see a new sun rise, a new morning in America. Instead of a leader who apologizes for our History we have a leader who proudly proclaims we will make America great again.
Case in Point:
According to the Financial Times, President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to ignore any rulings by the World Trade Organization that it sees as an affront to U.S. sovereignty.
According to the Times the report says, “Ever since the United States won its independence, it has been a basic principle of our country that American citizens are subject only to laws and regulations made by the U.S. government — not rulings made by foreign governments or international bodies.” The report continued, “Accordingly, the Trump administration will aggressively defend American sovereignty over matters of trade policy.”
The Wall Street Journal also reviewed the document. They stated that the policy represents a dramatic departure from the Obama administration, which emphasized international economic rules and the authority of the WTO, a body that regulates trade and resolves disputes among its members. The report also states that the Trump Administration will use, “all possible sources of leverage to encourage other countries to open up their markets.”
This is akin to a Second Declaration of Independence. No more will we continue to surrender our sovereignty, the sovereignty our ancestors, our brothers and our sisters have bled and died to establish and protect be diluted in the committees of nameless faceless bureaucrats where America has no more voice than El Salvador.
Strike up the band! Wave the flags. A campaign became a movement. A movement became a revolution. And this revolution is determined to make America great again!

Trump Triumph Tour Takes America By Storm December 2, 2016Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy.

The Donald showed with his surprise (to some / I started predicting it in January) upset election that he is the consummate political strategist in America today. In addition, he has shown with the unprecedented work to save jobs before he is even inaugurated that he will deliver on his promises to Make America Great Again.
His speech in Ohio last night was a real barn burner. It set the crowd on fire and inspired millions across the fruited planes. I can’t imagine what he will give as an inaugural speech that could top that. I am sure multiple millions of us will tune in to find out. I would also suggest tuning in to the rest of his Triumph Tour speeches. Last night he had a surprise announcement that he couldn’t make but he told us all in advance. I’d share it here but it is a secret….;–)
With the Impresario himself to orchestrate and with Kellyanne Conway and the team to advise I firmly believe we are on track to Make America Great Again.
However, as one lone voice hunkered in the bunker out here on the prairie I would like to add my wish list to the long dreamed of, long fought for, and much anticipated restoration administration:
Counter the VAT taxes the rest of the world uses to put tariffs by another name on us and to subsidize their exports with a VAT tax of our own on all imports.
Quit the WTO, the IMF, and the UN.
Make America the most business friendly place on earth with lower corporate taxes, reduced taxes on repatriated money, cut the noose of regulations that strangles our productivity.
Repeal and replace that job killing destroyer of the American healthcare system; Obamacare.
Re-negotiate or leave NAFTA and every other one-way trade deal the globalists have devised to make America just one among many.
In other words Mr. Trump do what you said you would do. You laid out a plan to make America Great Again and enough of us bought into it to elect you to be our president. Now deliver on those promises. Fulfill that vision and watch as the snowflake demonstrators turn into supporters once they learn that these policies will bring jobs, prosperity and the satisfaction of earning your own way instead of riding on the backs of others. If you do this and you will not only Make America Great Again you will go down in History as one of America’s greatest presidents. As the Historian of the Future I can guarantee that with a promise of my own.
