Thoughts on “Free Trade”

“It has been interesting watching the collapse of the Asian economy during the last couple of months and its effect on the American economy. The people in America who have been hurt by what’s happening in Asia are those who are involved in exports of American products to Asia. The Asian countries whose currencies have fallen in value relative to the dollar are able to buy much less from American producers than before, and so many of our industries which are heavily dependent on exports are in trouble and are being forced to cut back their operations and lay off employees. It looks like 1998 will be a very bad year for most of these American export industries.

All of this is rather embarrassing for the New World Order crowd and for the trendy enthusiasts for a global economy. A year or so ago they were all telling us how much better off we’d be if we went along with all of their so-called “free trade” proposals. “Don’t worry if a few American jobs go overseas,” they said. “We’ll more than make up for it with the growth in our export industries.” Then after the Clinton administration pushed their proposals through, the globalists gave us one optimistic report after another on how our export industries were growing. This was all very deceptive, because despite their implications that so-called “free trade” was resulting in economic gains for us, it wasn’t. What we gained in export business was more than made up for by our losses in other industries that continued to lose out to China and other Asian and Latin American countries. The average American really hasn’t paid much attention to this because the overall American economy is still relatively strong, and overall unemployment here is still quite low.”

The rest is [Here]. (For the audio version, go [Here] and scroll down to 01-03-1998).

      I just can’t tell ya’ll how much I miss Dr. Pierce’s weekly broadcast. I think there was a time that they kept me going, when all I could see around me was greed and madness. Reading them again is great but still a little sad. At least he does not have to see what we see today, and he did train us. It was through him, and him alone, over fifteen years ago that I learned the answer to the burning question that I had–who owns the media. I was just an ignorant but curious Southern boy at the time. RIP Dr., may we do you proud.

      “. . .But, in general, the protective system of our day is conservative, while the free trade system is destructive. It breaks up old nationalities and pushes the antagonism of the proletariat and the bourgeoisie to the extreme point. In a word, the free trade system hastens the social revolution. It is in this revolutionary sense alone, gentlemen, that I vote in favor of free trade. . .”

      I still enjoy reading Dr. Pierce’s work. His insights have not lost their relevence with the passage of time, indeed, as the anti-White agenda of the globalists accelerates to its final conclusion, WLP’s articles are essential reading even for hardened ‘true believers’.

      There is nothing “free” about free trade. It costs us good-paying jobs and it uses slave labor, prison labor, sweatshop labor and child labor to make all that cheap consumer crap we used to make over here. Free trade also pollutes the environment, causes huge trade deficits, creates massive waves of unemployed people forced to migrate to other countries, robs countries of their sovereignty and benefits only the international capitalist swine at the very top. Everyone else gets screwed by “free trade”, despite what the “experts” promised about it creating new markets for American goods and creating new jobs in the export and service industries.

      Yet many White, flag-waving, Rush Limbaugh listening, FOX News watching “conservatives” still support free trade. The left-wing socialists and populists in Latin America call it “neo-liberalism” and they are right to fight it every step of the way. They may be Mestizoes and New World Indians, but they are smarter than many Whites are about this subject.

      The average American knows now what is wrong with the free trade deals.

      Not everyone was ignorant. My family and I opposed those free trade deals at the time. It did not make sense that sending jobs to other countries was going to do anything the America. But Clinton and his Jewish buds were going to do it, anyway. That little quote of Karl Marx that shabbos s. shabazz posted above should have been crammed down Clinton’s throat until he choked.

      The average American doesn’t know shit about free trade. More importantly, they don’t give a shit. The Americans who do know something about it, know what the TV told them to think about it. Regardless of being liberal or conservative. The conservatives are told it’s great by Hannity, Limbaugh, etc. The liberals learn the good about it from the National Public Radio types.

      Just details here and there to iron out to make each think they got a little victory, and the NWO marches on.

      Pierce was dead on about it being a racial agenda. Listen to such as NPR and they’ll say it straight up. That’s one of the big plusses in the minds of those who would prove they’re not racist. By purposely causing the future mixing of muds into our country, and the lowering of White wages and the raising of non-white wages, they get that Skinner’s box- I did what I’m supposed to do- little domine flood, from their conditioned response to all things egalitarian in nature.

    8. Zarathustra Says:

      Not to be too contrarian here, but liberals, at least the real liberals, not the Establishment New York Times/NPR types, are opposed to Free Trade. They understand how it exploits people and wrecks economies. Of course, they don’t see the problem from a racialist perspective, but they are surprisingly populist and realistic at times. But then they lose their credibility when they start whining about global warming and fighting racism.

      Always enjoy Zarathustra’s comments. Free trade is a con job. I know because I live in one of the free trade disaster epicenters of America-Southeast Michigan.
