We’re off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Trade. The media is ready for Congress to don Dorothy’s red slippers and dance down the Yellow Brick Road to the Wizard of Trade’s creation—the United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement.

The USMCA is that so-called “free trade” deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement—NAFTA.

President Trump’s Trade Wizard is Robert Lighthizer, a long time New World Order member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). And, it is “Curtain Time!”

The scarecrow without a brain represents uninformed voters.

The Tin Man who’s missing a heart, personifies members of the one-world-government Council on Foreign Relations and the various foundations working to transform America into one little piece of their world government puzzle.

The cowardly lion wants courage and represents millions of concerned citizens waiting for you and me to inspire them to wake up and act to help protect America’s sovereignty, and our “Declaration of Independence,” and the United States Constitution—The Miracle that Changed the World—title of Cleon Skousen’s book.

Hasn’t President Trump been singing praises about the USMCA? Yes! But, does he know the details? To protect Americanism, didn’t Trump cancel the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), that represented 40 percent of world GDP, his first month in office?

Yes! But, readers of the 2,325-page, tri-country USMCA report it is a copy-cat version of President Obama’s defunct TPP.

What does the USMCA have to do with you and me?

NAFTA caused huge losses of manufacturing companies and jobs in SC and across the nation.

Massive, multi-country so-called “free” trade deals are unconstitutional, endanger America’s independence, and put our children and grandchildren’s futures as American citizens at risk.

On the other hand, Trump’s bi-lateral trade deals are both safe and smart. Our Founders argued strongly against foreign entanglements. Thomas Jefferson advised: “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations…entangling alliances with none.”

The 2,325-page USMCA has sovereignty-stealing mechanisms as did TPP. USMCA by-passes America’s constitution with its commissions and courts thereby threatening America’s independence.

USMCA helps deliver the United States into the grasp of the United Nations and is, in essence, an embryonic North American Union.

If you enjoy American beef, on page 303 of the International Trade Commission report, proposed USMCA incorporates NAFTA’s fundamentally flawed provisions. It causes the elimination of the critical mass of competitive marketing channels and industry infrastructure needed to sustain an independent family farm and ranch system of cattle production in the U.S.

The USMCA will thus accelerate the destruction of the U.S. cattle industry as we know it today. Is this an “economic win?” At what cost?

USMCA has a “North American Competitiveness Committee” in Chapter 36 to further economic integration among all three countries.

Mexico’s out-going president said (in Spanish) the USMCA will “consolidate the economic integration of North America.” Economic integration? Of North America? What happened to “free trade?” Oh! I get it! By economically integrating economies of nations under the guise of “trade,” and sorting these nations into “regions,” such as the European Union, the North American Union, etc., the United States winds up in a teeny, weeny spot in the pictorial on the box of the entire globalists’ one-world-government puzzle pieces. The U.S. and Lady Liberty will be thrown into the trash bin of history.

Alarm bells are ringing because the United Nations’ Agendas 21 and 2030, the World Trade Organization, and the International Monetary Fund are being used by the globalists to eventually create their one world government under the dictatorial rule of the United Nations, or other entity.

Remember? The European Union started out 60+ years ago as a “steel trade deal!” “Like Topsy, it just grew!” Now Britts want to Brexit! It won’t be easy for the U.S. to exit the North American Union, either.

This subject is too mighty to explore piecemeal If you’re reading this, you’re not like the scarecrow—uninformed voters. You’re not like the Tin Man with no heart, as per Council on Foreign Relations’ One World Government globalists. You are a lion! Our lion-hearts are rooted in Americanism. Americanists believe in our Constitutional Republic. We desire to restore states’ rights and local control. We want to reduce the size of government. We pray our local and state elected representatives will return to statesmanship and will end cronyism. America, South Carolina, and especially the lowcountry, all need honest statesmen who believe in less government, more responsibility, and with God’s help a better world.

It’s “Curtain Time!” USMCA debate in Congress starts soon—No Amendments—Yea or Nay—Period!
