China, Mexico Trade/Immigration Issue
The contesting between nation-states started with President Nixon’s 1972 accède into The People’s Republic of China. With ultimate superiority in every sector worth measuring, arrogant American hubris disabled the sensibility of farsighted analysis. Antithetical to all anticipatory possibilities; rejecting the most palpable of projection; the United States unwittingly (i.e., Mr. Magoo) marched into the dragon’s mouth.
As if cuddling an innocent on the first day of kindergarten U.S. leadership allowed China favorite nation status while ignoring a progressively disturbing behavior that did not fit the reassuring narrative of post-Nixon administrations. Harvard, Yale, Princeton graduates, the elite of America’s governing intelligentsia, the cognoscenti of America’s intellectual blue blood(s), they could not reckon or contrive that China would develop into a strategic threat to American interest. These are the same genesis that gave a thirty-year pass to North Korea while this gangster nation created and perfected deliverable nuclear weapons.
President Trump, will not tolerate, compromise, or concede America’s most powerful position in the world for the fanciful lure of globalism nor back away from confrontation no matter the source, variety, or need for unilateral action.
The United States is at risk of domination by China because of credulous, unwarranted hopefulness, the denying of the obvious, and the belief of a self-induced myth turned factoid: that a communist totalitarian government could evolve into a pluralistic society.
Americans, ignoring the strategic threat, are habituated, despite the detrimental consequences of dependence, with vital offshoring manufacturing housed in The People’s Republic of China. Principally; the United States has willfully financed Mao Zedong’s “great leap forward” and aided in this Asian country’s global dominance.
From a military and mercantile perspective, China is a strategic nemesis to American sovereignty. Tariffs should result in altering the buying of Chinese goods to competitors, and prompt investment into the U.S. Made products. The United States should not allow a trade policy to develop into dependence on essential products; pay the piper and buy ‘Made in America.’
Post-1910, Mexico requires its citizens to migrate to the USA because of Mexico’s perpetuation of governing incompetence and corrupt proclivities. The United States indirectly services Mexico’s governing incompetence by purchasing illicit drugs and therefore enriching the criminals that support Mexico’s corruption issues.
Immigration to the U.S. is a business that exports to Mexico multi-millions of cash. The hundreds of thousands of Central American migration has created an immigration crisis; resulting in an unsatisfactory expectation for the immigrates and a nightmare for the border control services.
Caught up in nonsense Congress is ineffectual; the House of Representatives hindered by its self-induced incompetence will not act.
Trump, striving to motivate Mexico to stop the flow of thousands by enforcing their immigration laws, therefore, aiding the USA’s migration issues; has decided to inflict tariffs on Mexican goods entering the U.S. It is a graduated tariff starting at 5% ceasing at 25%. Within this country, there is resistance to the president’s solution.
We Americans are paying billions across this nation to stem where possible and support those immigrants who are already here. Respectively, there is bitching that the imposed tariffs will cause the possibility of consumers spending more on Mexican products. What!
