The American Revolutionary War was really all about trade and the exploitation of colonies across the world by the British Empire. Nobody wanted to live under foreign subjugation, and you can’t blame them.
Today, we face a trade war with China that could set us back 214 years to colony status.
The British were the worst in trade with colonies. They even allowed a government-chartered corporation to build an army of 28,000 to rule India, so that nation’s conquered poor would supply cheap raw goods to Britain.
The London mills then turned cotton, for example, into expensive cloth, sold for top dollar. The people in India never shared in the wealth their country generated until freedom in 1947.
Another example of Britain’s avarice was the slave trade. While some 300,000 Africans were shipped to the American South, some 2.6 million were sent by the British to the Caribbean to harvest sugar. By the Civil War the 300,000 in America had grown in population to 3 million, but 2.3 million Caribbean slaves had died off, leaving just 300,000 survivors. Hell Britannia! Continue reading →

History provides some perspective. In 1972, President Richard Nixon unilaterally imposed tariffs on America’s allies without warning, violated the framework of the International Monetary Fund, and pursued an unpopular war in Vietnam…The following year, David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski created the Trilateral Commission, which meets once a year to discuss such problems.
During his Saturday campaign rally in Washington, Michigan, the “Hire America” President Donald Trump said that the U.S.A. unemployment numbers were so good that it was now possible to allow many more guest workers into the country to work the fields and take millions of other jobs. The audience gasped and then was silent.
It reminded voters, some who vigorously supported Barack Obama, of how that progressive candidate promised to reform the finance cartel, but then appointed nearly everyone from Wall Street to the Cabinet and highest councils.
And many may have recalled the first George Bush’s lip-reading campaign promise of “no new taxes.”
Or FDR’s pledge in the 1940 election to not send “our boys” into a European War.
I always thought it was a choice of two scenarios: some Presidents change their mind and some lie. But now there is the third possibility – that the President doesn’t have a clue about what he is saying. Mr. Trump, are you listening carefully? Continue reading →
