Workers of the World Unite!
Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Of all of President Trump's close advisers, Peter Navarro has been the best, sticking around as a spokesman for American workers and the president's tough policy exposing Red China's use of trade and looting our economy to achieve world domination. By contrast, Trump aides Stephen K. Bannon and "Seb" Gorka jumped ship -- or were pushed. Gorka made boatloads of money from Fox News, as a supposed foreign policy expert, while Bannon is appearing in he media as a China expert, working through such groups as The Committee on the Present Danger and producing a film. Good luck to him.
Meanwhile, Trump's former Pentagon chief, General James "Mad Dog" Mattis, left the administration because of disagreements with Trump and has written a self-serving book, setting the stage for more media mischief and misdeeds with Trump as the target. Perhaps there will be somebody in the media who will remember the fact that Mattis was on the board (along with Henry Kissinger) of the alleged fraudulent blood-testing company, Theranos. He has so far refused to comment on the allegations of fraudulent business practices at Theranos.
Note: Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes is going on trial in the summer of 2020 on fraud charges.
Navarro, formerly a professor of economics and public policy at the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine, has guided Trump's China policy. He understands the plight of American workers and the national security implications of the matter. Watch his film, "Death by China."
In 2016, with the campaign raging, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore suggested in an article titled “Five Reasons Why Trump Will Win” that Trump had found the key to victory in November.
Moore declared, “I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes—Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.” Yes, Trump had found the potential key to victory because he realized that the Democratic Party has given up on these workers, who were once considered to be their main constituency.
These workers have become even more alienated from their jobs, as Marx predicted, because their jobs no longer exist. And according to Trump, it’s because the Democrats—especially the Clintons—embraced bad trade agreements like NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Writing at Politico, Danny Vinik says, “A growing body of academic evidence indicates that certain U.S. trade policies and the loss of hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs have had both economic and social costs, and have contributed to many of the social ills that plague the Rust Belt today. If anything, experts said, the skeptical reaction to [White House trade adviser Peter] Navarro’s document [on the social and economic costs of a weakened manufacturing base -- see above] represents a failure to understand the true damage that job losses have caused in Trump’s America-- and how those losses can bleed over into other aspects of a person’s life, creating long-lasting negative consequences on their family and community.”
These are the stakes.
