In a press conference on December 10 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that House Democrats have reached an agreement with the Trump administration’s trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, and Mexico and Canada on additional provisions to the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement. These additions are concerned with what she referred to as better rules, enhanced monitoring mechanisms, and stronger enforcement regarding labor laws, environmental regulations, and drug pricing.
Pelosi indicated that she would like to hold the USMCA vote in the House by the end of the current session, December 20.
Although the expectation has been that a majority of House Republicans would vote for approval of the USMCA, and that it would take only a relatively small number of Democrats to provide the simple majority needed for approval in the House, Pelosi’s press conference has led Republican Senator Pat Toomey to warn that the USMCA has moved way to the left, and that it would be a “big mistake” to pass the USMCA in the coming weeks.
In the same Politico article dated December 10, it was reported that Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) “has also raised concerns that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer may have given ‘away the store’ to Democrats.”
What these warnings from Republican Senators Toomey and Cornyn mean is that we should not assume that USMCA approval is assured in either the House or the Senate.
And, in another surprising development in the USMCA story, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said on December 10: “We will not be doing USMCA in the Senate between now and next week. That will happen, in all likelihood, right after the trial is finished in the Senate.” This delay in the USMCA vote until after an impeachment trial in the Senate in early 2020, if it doesn’t get overruled in the meantime, will give us more time to influence our senators to vote NO on USMCA.
During a question and answer period at the end of her press conference, Pelosi remarked that “Globalization is a reality. It’s not going away.”
To put the significance of the USMCA agreement in perspective, consider the graphic above showing where the globalists are trying to take us. This graphic is not reflecting reality today, but it shows the type of regional trading blocs and regional governments that the globalists are busily constructing through their strategy of making trade agreements. Their prize exhibit is the European Union (EU), which is a reality today. It began as the six-member European Coal and Steel Community in 1952. Now after many decades of so-called free trade agreements between European nations, the European Union has been established as a supranational government over its 28 formerly independent member states. (Click on the graphic for an article explaining the globalists’ trade agenda.)
One extremely important goal of the globalists’ trade agenda is to gradually integrate, economically and politically, the United States, Mexico, and Canada into an EU-style North American Union, as shown in the graphic.
Please help stop the North American Union by influencing the members of the House and Senate to vote against the USMCA agreement. Encourage others to do likewise. A good source of talking points to use in opposition to the USMCA is an online TNA article “What’s Really in the USMCA?”
We must prevent the loss of our national independence and personal rights to first, a North American Union, and then ultimately to a UN world government that is the globalists’ final goal. For more information, go to our USMCA action tools page.
Phone your representative (202-225-3121) and your two senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to stop the North American Union and thereby preserve our national independence and personal rights by voting NO on the USMCA agreement. We also recommend contacting your congressmen’s staffs in their local offices. Click here to look up their phone numbers, email addresses, Twitter addresses, etc.
