Obama meets to sell out USA one more time, recall NAFTA?


The three amigos, Canada, Mexico and the USA, are meeting today in an attempt to sell out the USA one last time. How easy it is to forget what NAFTA has done to us. Buried with all that happened yesterday was a Trump speech worthy of some attention. What perked me up was Trump indicating he wanted to re-negotiate the NAFTA treaty as well as his opposition to TPP. One thing was running Mexican trucks up our gullet. Let’s roll back the clock and do a recall. Obama/We pay to fix Mexico’s trucks to meet Obama’s new EPA standards that he set. Makes sense.

The Obama administration announced a proposal last week to resurrect a controversial program that gives Mexican cargo trucks access to American highways.  (New York Times, Jan. 6, 2011)

According to a NAFTA arbitration panel, a cross-border trucking program included in the agreement requires the United States to allow trucks from Mexico and Canada access to American highways.  (Secretariat File No. USA-MEX-98-2008-01)

But first, because Mexicans would not pay for meeting our EPA standards, we did. Nice. Then we have the security issues, but hey, what’s a few more Mexicans, terrorists, or whatever.

U.S. pays to upgrade Mexican Trucks             mexico trucks

In the latest effort to accommodate its cherished trade partner in the south, the U.S. government is paying to upgrade outdated Mexican trucks that hemorrhage illegal amounts of exhaust on their trips north to deliver merchandise.

Since the Mexican truckers have no intention of fixing the problem, Uncle Sam has stepped in to save the environment. U.S. taxpayers have picked up the cost to replace old mufflers on dozens of trucks and many more are scheduled to be upgraded by the middle of this year. The unbelievable story was reported this week by an Arizona newspaper that says replacing the old mufflers with new catalytic converters will reduce harmful diesel emissions by up to 30%. Full story here  Judicial Watch

Mexican government says it will ease its trade sanctions against U.S. imports only after its trucks are allowed to cross the border.

Sanctions? Juan really…

Juan Carlos Munoz, president of Mexico’s National Chamber of Motor Transport of Freight, said Mexican trucks cannot meet U.S. environmental emissions standards, which effectively shuts them out of the market.

Mexican oil companies “do not have sufficient capacity to supply the diesel suitable for these new technologies” required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Munoz said after meeting with Mexico’s transportation secretary.   From: All Headline News  :

        Or how many times this pres says “I”? I’m not sure Geo. Bush said “I” three times in his whole tenure,…
        And that little swine of a Mx President REALLY bugged me….the NERVE he has.

        Oh, and in the same class of weasels this today –
        “In a column for Foreign Policy Magazine, Council on Foreign Relations member James Traub argues that the elite need to “rise up” against the “mindlessly angry” ignorant masses in order to prevent globalization from being derailed by the populist revolt that led to Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump.

        Concerned that, “Today’s citizen revolt — in the United States, Britain, and Europe — may upend politics as nothing else has in my lifetime,” Traub notes that Brexit was an “utter repudiation of….bankers and economists” and an example of how “extremism has gone mainstream”.

    Hi Bunkerville,
    Here it is:
    In the WordPress dashboard, go to SETTINGS, then DISCUSSION SETTINGS. Unclick the “Users must be registered and logged in to comment”. I had another friend that did the same thing and it worked. That might allow me to post on your blog. Thanks! Sorry to be so much trouble. Have a blessed day.🙂

      I did my best about settings, but it could be my theme. I will see my guru weby and see if she can do anything. I have an old version as well. May be some updates. Trump really gets under Obama’s skin. His ego is so fraigel. Apparently Obama never took the next morning’s daily briefing after the killing in Benghazi. He has no interest other than riding that plane.

    This is so headache inducing, I’m really at a loss for words. Our government is evil! Not stupid, but evil. Evil knows what it’s doing, stupid doesn’t. I hope we can all survive the next year. Yeah, it’s 6 months before DingleBarry is gone but it’s gonna take some time for Trump to fix what’s wrong. We’ll also need a good Senate or House to help since this isn’t a dictatorship (not yet, anyway).
    Have a blessed day Bunkerville. Stay strong.

      “Our government is evil! Not stupid, but evil. Evil knows what it’s doing, stupid doesn’t.”
      Sparky – I can’t tell you how many times I wrote that trying to wake people up but it is something people just don’t want to see. Evil is a terrible thing. And for people to realize they/we actually are responsible for putting evil in these places of power? No, no, no – too hard to face.
      What else I have preached for so long Sparky is – we make a really big mistake if we think we can leave this up to Trump to fix. Even if he has good help.
      We, the People are going to have to have a big hand in it and that does not mean once every four years!
      The dreamer that I am I would like Trump on day one to call “the People” to the white house and physically extract about 95% of those there.

    I remember well when we began allowing trucks in but not the part of the US upgrading their vehicles!
    “In the latest effort to accommodate its cherished trade partner in the south, the U.S. government is paying to upgrade outdated Mexican trucks that hemorrhage illegal amounts of exhaust….”
    And – as it turns out those trucks hemorrhaged a lot more “illegal” than just exhaust!

    Has a lame duck presidency ever been less lame duck than this one? And we have six months to go?!?
