A Lame Duck: Mascot of a Failed, Corrupt Congress

Obama has said that he intends to push the TPP in the lame-duck session of Congress. There is no better tactic for subverting democracy than the lame duck session. And the transnational corporate lobbyists are pushing hard for one! A few days wedged between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the average citizen is tired of politics and looking forward to some holiday cheer – and naive thoughts of a better world, is just what the Establishment needs to get its way. Continue reading

Refugee Overload: Creating ‘Ghettos’ in Rural Texas

When ‘pockets of resistance’ arise in these rural towns, the federal government dispatches yet more contractors who produce propaganda films and entire assimilation public relations programs to force compliance, if not silence in communities that resist. Meanwhile, states like Texas, … Continue reading

Clinton Still Using Free Trade Rhetoric

Beijing kicked its trade offensive into high gear while Bill Clinton was in the White House, but looking the other way. And, while Hillary Clinton has been pushed into spinning some of her views during the current campaign, it does not seem that she has truly broken with the past to devise new policies to deal with the economic rivalries that have done so much damage to the U.S. economy and now jeopardizes national security as well. Continue reading

The Pharisees of Our Time vs. the Blue Collar Billionaire

Some lay Catholics and priests may object to Trump’s personal life-style as a younger man. Let them remember we’re choosing a president, not a pope. Let them remember, too, especially in this Vatican-proclaimed Year of Mercy, that Our Lord is a merciful God. Continue reading

NAFTA Raises Its Ugly Head: Mexico Set to Dump Toxic Oil Field Waste into Texas

The Mexican customs office within the KC SmartPort is considered sovereign Mexican territory within the United States’ borders. The port was established to boost international trade by moving cargo and customs inspections into what are known as Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) with tremendous tax and duty benefits that domestic companies do not enjoy. Inland ports facilitate the further economic integration of the U.S. with Canada and Mexico. KC SmartPort boasts its rail lines are part of the NAFTA superhighway for freight movement.

At the Donald Trump Rally: “Let’s Talk About Rochester”

When Trump mentioned Bausch & Lomb and Kodak, I was reminded about seeing the adults in the neighborhood leave early in the mornings and come home from these workplaces, as well as factories like Bond’s, Hickey-Freeman, and Rochester Products. Most of these have either closed or downsized; workers in foreign countries now do the jobs my parents and relatives did. The neighborhood I grew up in began its downward slide with the 1964 riots. With the loss of manufacturing jobs, working class families fled not only the neighborhoods but Rochester itself. In my old “14621” neighborhood, the modest houses with neatly kept yards now feature trash and boarded-up windows. Continue reading

Heidi Cruz, The Council on Foreign Relations, and ‘Building a North American (Union) Community’

Some of Ted Cruz’s primary opponents for Senate brought up ‘Building a North American Community’ (BNAC) in 2012, and Cruz responded that the criticisms were a distraction because “this race isn’t about the CFR.” Yet, as Donald Trump has brought issues involving immigration and trade to the forefront of national debate, national sovereignty has become a key issue in the 2016 race. Trump’s advisor Stephen Miller said that the race ultimately boiled down to “nation-state versus globalism.” By lending her name to one of the most pernicious attempts to undermine our American sovereignty, Heidi Cruz stood firmly on the side of globalism. The BNAC blueprint remains. It raises the question, “Would a President Cruz embrace the Council on Foreign Relations’ North American Community?” Continue reading

On Immigration, Cantor was a Radical, not a Moderate

The issue that allowed economics professor David Brat to defeat House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the June 10 Virginia primary was immigration policy. President Obama’s vision of ”comprehensive immigration reform” attracted enough GOP votes in the Senate (though not a majority) to pass last year…

Congressman Grayson: TPP creates parallel legal system, threatens U.S. sovereignty

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “creates a parallel court system that has never existed before and will usurp U.S. sovereignty” warned Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News and Analysis.

Reagan Democrats, Texas and Globalization

Since Barack Obama won a second term, much has been said about how the GOP needs to reach out to a broader group and be more tolerant in order to win another national election. In Texas, all eyes are on Democrat Senator Wendy Davis to see whether she will formally throw her hat in the ring to run for Texas Governor later this month. She’s energized her party over her high-profile filibuster of a bill to restrict abortion that won her national attention and made her an instant household name in the Lone Star State. Politicos have been pondering whether Texas will turn blue ever since.

Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations wrap up in Brunei

With President Barack Obama’s popularity at home and overseas suffering, there’s yet another area of policy where his influence is diminishing: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a key part of his globalist free trade agenda. World leaders from 12 countries wrapped up a week of negotiations in the Sharia-Islamic Southeast Asian country of Brunei on August 23 and will meet again later this month in the United States. The TPP represents the largest free trade agreement in U.S. history.

The IRS Tax Refund Mill for Illegals

Since the imposition of the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), whereby individuals residing within the borders of the United States, yet ineligible to receive Social Security Numbers have been able to file tax returns, widespread fraud has gone unabated. This according to the 2012 report (Reference Number: 2012-42-081) issued by the Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

Trade Promotion Authority is Not the Free Trade Utopia it Seems

Thirty-five of the 36 House Republican freshmen in Congress have said they would like to provide President Obama with “Trade Promotion Authority” (TPA), which would allow him to “fast-track” the negotiation of reciprocal trade agreements, instead of wrangling through the specifics with Congress. Ostensibly, it would make free trade agreements easier to implement.

NAFTA superhighway underway in South Texas

While there’s been much political angling and wrangling over whether or not the famed legacy project of Texas Governor Rick Perry, the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC), is dead or alive, the evidence points to it being alive and well and back underway throughout Texas. The Trans-Texas Corridor is the Texas portion of the NAFTA Superhighway Trade Corridor and Toll Road System.

Focal Point Texas: The Coming Trade Tsunami and the Greater Push Toward Globalization

The eighth annual Texas Transportation Forum hosted by the Texas Transportation Institute and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) recently held in Austin had all eyes on the future – the future of international trade in light of the anticipated Panama Canal expansion, the future of road funding, and even the future of driving (like driverless cars).
