Ignored by Corrupt News Media, USMCA Takes Effect

In case you missed this bit of real news amid all of the false hysteria over COVID-19 and the fake story on the “Russia briefing” being spread by our corrupt news media, the U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect today. It’s a really big deal, for one reason no one likes to talk about.

From today forward, Canada and Mexico will no longer be able to ship goods made in China but assembled in their countries into the U.S. free of tariffs, a practice both countries had engaged in to the huge disadvantage of the U.S. for the previous 25 years under NAFTA. As of this moment, the only goods that qualify as “North American” under this trade agreement are those that are completely manufactured within the three countries that are party to the deal.

As such, the USMCA represents a great leap forward in the Trump policy of disentangling our country from China and the evil communist thug regime that rules that country.

Here is a statement issued by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer today:

Washington, DC – The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) enters into force today, replacing the job-killing NAFTA failure and fulfilling a core promise President Trump made to the American people.

The USMCA, which President Trump successfully negotiated in 2018, rebalances trade between the three countries and will lead to significant economic and job growth in the United States.

At President Trump’s direction, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer worked closely with Congress to win overwhelming bipartisan approval of the USMCA.

Ambassador Lighthizer issued the following statement about USMCA’s entry into force:

“Today marks the beginning of a new and better chapter for trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada – just as President Trump promised he would deliver for the American people.

“From day one of his Administration, President Trump has changed the focus of America’s trade policy away from what is best for big, multi-national corporations to instead what is best for America’s workers, farmers and ranchers.  That’s a monumental change.  His success in creating a bipartisan consensus on this new model for trade policy — in spite of the establishment critics who said it couldn’t be done — is truly remarkable.

“The USMCA contains significant improvements and modernized approaches that will deliver more jobs, stronger worker protections, expanded market access, and greater opportunities to trade for companies large and small.  We have worked closely with the governments of Mexico and Canada to ensure that the obligations and responsibilities of all three nations under the agreement have been met, and we will continue to do so to ensure the USMCA is enforced.

“The recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrates that now, more than ever, the United States must stop the outsourcing of jobs and increase our manufacturing capacity and investment here at home.  With the USMCA’s entry into force, we take another giant step forward in reaching this goal and advancing President Trump’s vision for pro-worker trade policies.”

God Bless America.

    Thank You President Trump!!

    Another promise kept! Congratulations, President Trump!

    This will make it better for Mexicans who want to work in their own country, and it will likely have an effect on shipping containers containing China-manufactured fentanyl and other illegally manufactured drugs.

    Funny thing, China has so much control of business, populations and everything else under the sun, but seems helpless to stop the shipments of fentanyl! . They’re either incompetent, or they’re malicious distributors of drugs they hope will kill hundreds of thousands of Americans.

    I’m guessing the latter.

      And since the CCP boasts total control over the population, the economy and production of goods and services – as well as information – it’s obvious that they control the manufacture, packaging and distribution of illicit drugs.

      Cut off trade with China entirely.

    WOW, explains why Emperor Xi and his CCP are spend so many dollars to elect Quid Pro Sleepy Joe.

    Speaking of corrupt news media: they’re trying for a second round of click-bait with “news” of the virus. You can tell the difference between actual news and manufactured news with a little practice. This isn’t just fake news about BLOVID-19, either: promos for BLM get the same treatment. Not interested in their fake news about new “alarming new cases” of BLOVID, when they don’t report the substantial reduction in deaths.

    We have all experienced summer colds. That’s what this is now.

    My solution is to block stories that are just clickbait for those who endorse hysteria, or I block those news organizations themselves. (Do it on my phone, too.)

    It’s like slamming the door in the face of a persistent, annoying salesman who won’t take no for an answer. If enough people deliberately refuse their news, it means that their advertisers lose, too. Learn to delete.

    Thanks for the info. Not surprising that the CCP owned enemedia would ignore this.
    Fam still watches the enemy and they are going all out for mandatory mask wearing.
    I try to avoid it but pick up bits and pieces of what the enemy is saying.

    Probably the most corrupting influence in this world is the liberal progressive media axiomatically following the dictates of liberal socialism as the only valid form of governance that should be allowed in this world. No where in the founding documents of the UK or the USA Anglo American Constitution is this form of governance even hinted toward. This is the contrivance of a self appointed elite that has no tradition or history in either the UK or the USA. It seems to have arisen out of some sort of axioms from leftist socialists tinkering with reasoning what governance should be like in the western countries post WWII. It has infiltrated academia from the highest levels of education all the way down to those teaching our kindergarten level children. This is not healthy for our country. President Trump and the truly conservative 4 justices on our Supreme Court have been pushing back hard and some of this pushing back is working. Unfortunately, the vast majority of our electorate has been educated into the socialist liberal corruption we need to push down out of leadership. That is why they vote for it. It is not a truly rational reasoning process based upon the wisdom of a sound education and years of life experience, but is solely based upon the feelings of the voters under the influence of a very corrupt media.
