here is something to ponder...
print media once a local paper in every small city and county and of course some national ones.. then as the internet came to be.. (thanks Al Gore!) the corporations started to provide free access to news.. from the papers.. then print got to expensive as readership declined because you could get it "free" from the internet... stay with me.. then Google and Facebook and others started up... even more free stuff.. and they catered to you.. now the even the big print couldn't play much anymore.. so they started going broke.. not big corporations or government run entities but mom/pop reporting... Freedom of the press was that freedom to print whatever you see fit....

Think about it now as the papers start failing, then a group of rich folks start buying them up.. cheap.. fire the trouble maker help...report on what we tell you to report on... soon only 2 or 3 "owners" exist.. now do the same thing in radio and TV... then the beauty of it... you have your "private enterprises" who make up "rules" to use their format for FREE! and they can censor you at whatever they perceive as "hate speech". The press is run by a small oligarchy and is allowed to operate by the government... the rest is probably run by the CIA.. see my post on facebook and the CIA lifelog program...

now you have complete control of the information people receive... just like every other conquered state...

Funny other countries laugh at us.. we know we are getting propaganda and can read between the lines.. you Americans don't know it is happening to you...because you naively think you have freedom of the press...

Don't start on the 4th amendment and the whole TSA BS... The DSA group is out to destroy the constitution... you just don't know it yet...

I know this to be true. I don't watch the 'news' at all, but rather get my news and information from independent news sources and credit-worthy journalists, like Ben Swann. The total news apparatus is owned essentially by a couple corporations, which also have a heavy hand in our government. So I don't watch. It's all BS to keep us fighting with each other. Even the Weather Channel is wrong.

Seems very odd to me.

NAFTA 2.0: Free Trade or Central Planning?
Written by Ron Paul
Monday October 8, 2018


Last week the United States, Mexico, and Canada agreed to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Sadly, instead of replacing NAFTA’s managed trade with true free trade, the new USMCA expands government’s control over trade.

For example, under the USMCA’s “rules of origin,” at least 75 percent of a car’s parts must be from the US, Canada, or Mexico in order to avoid tariffs. This is protectionism designed to raise prices of cars using materials from outside North America.

The USMCA also requires that 40 to 45 percent of an automobile’s content be made by workers earning at least 16 dollars per hour. Like all government-set wages, this requirement will increase prices and decrease employment.

The USMCA also requires Mexico to pass legislation recognizing the “right of collective bargaining.” In other words, this so-called free trade agreement forces Mexico to import US-style compulsory unionism. If the Mexican legislature does not comply, the US and Canada will impose tariffs on Mexican goods.

The USMCA also requires the three countries to abide by the International Labour Organization (ILO) standards for worker rights. So, if, for example, the bureaucrats at the ILO declared that Right to Work laws violate “international labor standards”’ because they weaken collective bargaining and give Right to Work states an unfair advantage over compulsory unionism states and countries, the federal government may have to nullify all state Right to Work laws.

The USMCA also obligates the three countries to work together to improve air quality. This sounds harmless but could be used as a backdoor way to impose costly new regulations and taxes, such as a cap-and-trade scheme, on America.

This agreement also forbids the use of currency devaluation as a means of attempting to gain a competitive advantage in international trade. Enforcement of this provision will be difficult if not impossible, as no central bank will ever admit it is devaluing currency to obtain a competitive advantage in international trade. Of course, given that the very act of creating money lowers its value, the only way to stop central banks from devaluing currency is to put them out of business. Sadly, I don’t think the drafters of the USMCA seek to restore free-market money.

The currency provision will likely be used to justify coordination of monetary policy between the Federal Reserve and the Mexican and Canadian central banks. This will lead to region-wide inflation and a global currency war as the US pressures Mexico and Canada to help the Fed counter other countries’ alleged currency manipulation and challenges to the dollar’s reserve currency status.

A true free trade deal would simply reduce or eliminate tariffs and other trade barriers. It would not dictate wages and labor standards, or require inter-governmental cooperation on environmental standards and monetary policy. A true free trade deal also would not, as the USMCA does, list acceptable names for types of cheeses.

Those of us who support real free trade must not let supporters of the USMCA get away with claiming the USMCA has anything to do with free trade. We must also fight the forces of protectionism that are threatening to start a destructive trade war. Also, we must work to stop the government from trying to control our economic activities through regulations, taxes, and (most importantly) control of the currency through central banking and legal tender laws.
