When Free Trade Fails, War Follows

Populist cries for trade protectionism are again ringing out, as politicians seek to blame China for bad US monetary and economic policy. But destroying trade will not only make us poorer, it is usually the harbinger of war.

Explain the molten steel, pulverized concrete, free fall speed of WTC building 7, and the Pentagon wreckage/impact on 9/11.

No

Why won't NIST release the calculations and data of the collapse of WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 since it would help people in the design build industry?

No

Over 80 cameras should have captured the so called plane hitting the Pentagon.

The DHS considers veterans a threat now because they know once everyone figures out 9/11 was an inside job the veterans are going to hold the Fascist accountable. 9/11 = 1776

9/11 was a False Flag Operation committed by the highest levels of our Fascist Government and corporations. WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 fell at free fall speeds and a missile hit the Pentagon.

I thought that "free trade" was what the globalistic powers wanted, and that's why they create uprisings in europe, such as in Ukraine, which is geopolitically important. They want to westernize the world , to eliminate "protectionism" and to cause "free trade". That will result in a commercialized global garbage culture, but the big corporations will be happy.

You know what makes me laugh is nobody will bring up the obvious. We have to shrink the government by no less 50% to get this country back on it feet again.

I work my butt off in my own business and I will never have a pension. With out sacrifice we are doomed

Hate to start this comment off with something about Trump, but I wonder how Trump can say anything at all about the trade and production of other countries when his own products are predominantly made in other countries. Anyways, free markets are always the right thing to do. Give the power to the people. With this situation regarding foreign countries beating us in production I just don't think places like China have sustainable industry. I have always been surprised their people haven't revolted sooner over the work and environmental conditions they face. Maybe if we actually did a little more… Read more »

I think they are like Enron. hiding debt. padding numbers until the elite have hoarded everything , then they cash out. hide in bunkers with their gold and land deeds until most of us are gone.
