The Assault Is On Have You Even Taken Notice Yet?

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. - Cicero
Marcus Tullius (106 B.C. - 43 B.C.), Roman statesman, political theorist and philosopher. You dont have to be a fan of Lawrence Welk or have watched Neil Armstrongs walk on the moon to know that something in America has changed that something is fundamentally different about the direction and manner in which the stewards of Americas constitutional republic have governed during the past quarter century. A palpable shift is occurring in American today that cannot be explained away by the convenient rationalization of mere partisanship typical of the traditional Republican-Democrat political dynamic. What used to be a policy debate about how to best achieve commonly shared ideals has today evolved into a darker and more insidious debate of what those ideals should be. Practically every element of Americas social, economic and cultural identity has come under assault and is seemingly being surrendered by a detached, if not disinterested, fraternity of Congressional millionaires and an heirship of Presidential monarchs (Bush, Clinton, Bush) allegedly elected to serve the interests of the American People. Perhaps most alarming, however, is the growing sense that many of Americas national leaders are not just neglecting their fiduciary duties to their constituencies, but are instead purposefully circumventing the will of the American People through a strategic campaign of misinformation, deceit and non-disclosure in order to serve a more sinister and selective interest one defined by an acute class of political and corporate internationalists whose policy objectives stand in direct opposition to the economic interests and well-being of tens of millions of American wage earners and middle-class professionals. And nowhere is the sense of political abandonment and betrayal more visceral than in the context of the Political Elites intoxicating embrace of Economic Globalism the Shangri-La of the New World Order where Americas corporate haut monde revel in a utopian paradise of unfathomable profits and riches reminiscent of the child-like wonderment experienced by young Charlie Bucket and his Grandpa Joe in their golden-ticket visit to Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory. But instead of chocolate-flowing rivers, marshmallow crme-filled flowers and trees ripe with gummy bears, many of Americas largest brand corporations are drawn to Globalisms allure of slave wages, environmental free-rein, and freedom from the restraints of social conscience and nationalism that tend to keep American living standards up and corporate profits down. The Golden Ticket to these riches is the propaganda of Free Trade - a cornucopia of economic promises to the American People that has been urged by every American president since Ronald Reagan and one built upon the ideal that in an unfettered global economy, American companies large and small will be able to manufacture and distribute their products freely into new and untapped marketplaces previously closed or inaccessible due to governmental tariffs and protectionist policies. In doing so, Free Trade propagandists painted a future of expanding wealth and economic security for the average American worker whose products were in high-demand the world over, but which were being artificially barred at foreign ports of entry. The implied presumption, of course, was that the manufacturing and product distribution of these American companies would continue to originate from their longstanding country of origin, the United States where workers would share in the benefits. The dirty little secret, though, was that Free Trade was never truly intended to open world markets to American-made products. Rather, Free Trade was negotiated with the presidents fast-track authority so that products made in third-world countries like Mexico could make easy entry into the United States and the worlds largest consumer economy. Once the politicians did their job and got NAFTA passed on December 8, 1993, the gates to the Chocolate Factory were open and the assault on the American Worker was on. It was only a matter of time before the Big Sucking Sound of American manufacturers would begin evacuating to low-wage countries forewarned by Ross Perot in his 1992 presidential bid.

The predictable result, of course, was a jailbreak exodus of American manufacturing to the legalized slave wage fields of northern Mexicos burgeoning maquiladoras lining the border towns of Juarez, Tijuana, and Matamoros so the Wall Street Corporate Baron Class could avail itself of dramatically reduced production costs without losing the fatted calf of Americas worlds largest consumer marketplace in the process. It was only a matter of time before the Leadership Pimps of the Republican and Democratic parties were hand$omely rewarded for executing a political dine-and-dash on the American People and taking the good table linens in the process.

A Team Approach
Once the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, a major obstacle to the economic betrayal of the American People had been cleared. And as is the signature of any betraying policy initiative of the Political Elite, the philosophy behind NAFTA had the endorsement and active promotion by the highest levels of the Republican and Democratic parties alike. Whereas President Reagan first proposed and promoted a North American common market, Bush-1 facilitated negotiations with the leaders of Mexico (Salinas) and Canada (Mulrooney) during his presidency, while President Clinton signed the legislation into law in the face of an anxious, but politically extorted, Labor Movement. Since then, Bush-2 has pursued the expansion of the Free Trade philosophy with focused abandon as he has gone on a literal Free Trade world tour with his fast-track authority to secure similar American rapings in Chile (2003), Singapore (2003), Bahrain (2004), Morocco (2004), Central America (CAFTA - 2005), Oman (2006), Panama (2007), and South Korea (2007). Tellingly, none of these Free Trade agreements include American partnerships with nations having comparatively equal standards of living as the United States. Thankfully, President G.W. Bush did not lose sight of his domestic policy obligations to the American People while he was ensuring that the export of American jobs, manufacturing infrastructure and technological advancement would continue for decades beyond the tenure of his presidency. Bush-2s (1) aggressive advocacy of amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens in the face of overwhelming public opposition, (2) disinterest in securing Americas southern border (even during a period of heightened terrorist tensions), (3) expansion of Americas H-1B visa program, and (4) abject arrogance in refusing to pardon two wrongly-convicted American border agents on the heels of vice presidential adviser Scooter Libbys prison commutation clearly underscored that President Bushs commitment to the outsourcing of American jobs was not to be outdone by his commitment to the insourcing of foreign labor. The double-whammy to American wage earners, professional and blue-collar alike, has been undeniable except to those whose loyalties lie beyond the mandates of the United States Constitution and the United States of America itself. The betrayal of the American wage earner has become so commonplace that it has literally resulted in a cottage industry of its own as evidenced by the internet posting by one law firm, Cohen & Grigsby (Pittsburgh, PA), of an instructional video entitled How Not to Hire an American Worker that gives corporate employers a step-by-step tutorial on how to legally discriminate against the hiring of American workers in preference of cheaper illegal foreign nationals. Even Microsoft founder and former chairman, Bill Gates, has openly lobbied Congress to eliminate all H-1B visa restrictions so that a limitless supply of foreign professionals can freely enter the American labor pool to compete with American-born engineers, computer programmers and IT professionals at third-world salaries to further drive down American middle class living standards. Look it up. Of course, the loss of American livelihoods and the struggle to maintain a diminishing standard of living is only one part of the Corporate-Political Elites sinister betrayal of the American People. Over the past two decades, the administrations of Democratic and Republican presidents alike have literally sacrificed Americas national security on the heels of a globalist trade agenda that has seen Communist China blossom into the worlds greatest manufacturing giant while it concurrently builds upon what has become the worlds fastest developing military threat to the United States. In 1998, the Clinton Administration granted a State Department exemption to Loral Space & Communications Ltd. so it could sell satellite launch technology to Communist China which, predictably, was adapted to the Red Armys intercontinental ballistic arsenal, the bulk of which is now targeted on major American cities. It was no coincidence that Lorals CEO, Bernard Schwartz, personally contributed $3 million to the Democratic Partys 1996 election campaign cycle. In January 2007, China surprised the world when it conducted a successful test destruction of an orbiting weather satellite, the first time such testing had been conducted by any country in over 20 years and a provocation many military analysts believe could result in the militarization of space and a further decline in global security as China emerges from its technological slumber. Meanwhile, the strong-arm tactics of retail giant Wal-Mart have forced hundreds of small to mid-sized American manufacturers to shudder their U.S. operations and the jobs that go with it as they must relent to the allure of Chinas slave wage manufacturing mecca just to be able to compete against multinational corporations who drove the sell-out of America long ago. The result is the growing record import of cheap consumer goods and the export of U.S. dollars, many of which are directed towards the modernization of Communist Chinas naval fleet and an estimated $90 billion military budget for 2007, an 18% increase over its 2006 military expenditures. On the brighter side, the Corporate-Political Elites treasonous sell-out to Communist Chinas slave labor industry has resulted in a growing health and food safety risk to the newly-underemployed American Consumer. From the fatal effects of melamine plasticizer in dog and cat food, to the presence of anti-freeze glycol in toothpaste, to the recall of popular childrens toys (Thomas the Tank Engine) due to the presence of lead-based paints, the benefits of Economic Globalism go well beyond the trivialities of eroding American livelihoods and breaches of national security. Chinese-produced fish, eel and shrimp routinely test positive for adulteration with unapproved drugs, while Chinas crawfish exports are often bathed in raw sewage before being processed for American consumption. As increasingly difficult as it has become for even the most-principled or concerned American consumer to seek-out American-made product options, President Bushs Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has refused to implement food product labeling laws that require clear county-of-origin labeling so that American consumers can make conscious choices about the food risks they choose to take for themselves and their families. If this policy surprises you, you havent been paying attention. The American Heritage Dictionary defines treason as a violation of allegiance to ones country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of ones country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposefully acting to aid its enemies; a betrayal of trust or confidence. By any objective standard, the Political Elites purposeful use of disingenuous Free Trade propaganda to manipulate and compromise the American Peoples economic, national, and food safety security to patronize an elite circle of expatriated multinational corporations is a betrayal of trust and confidence of the highest order. Its time for a shareholder revolt against the officers of America, Inc. who have been derelict in their fiduciary duties to the Company and who have damaged the value of Americas franchise by the piecemeal dismantlement of its sovereignty, greatness and standing in the world for a few pieces of lousy silver. Of course, such ambition is likely to draw the ire of perennial elitist Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) who has taken exception with talk radio and the American People for the resounding defeat of the Corporate-Political Elites Cheap Labor Insourcing Initiative (illegal immigration amnesty scam) that had to be killed-off twice before President Bush would actually relent to the will of the American People. Meanwhile, on July 4, 2007 and with little fanfare, Chrysler Corp. announced that it had signed a production agreement with Chinese automaker Chery to manufacture small cars in Communist China for export to the United States. When asked of the risks of developing Chery into a future market competitor, Chrysler Chairman and CEO Tom LaSorda smugly responded, Are you going to go with a winner? Happy birthday, America.
