It is becoming more apparent as each day passes that Newt Gingrich may become Donald Trump’s pick for vice president, or at the very least part of his administration should he win the election. There is no question that Newt Gingrich would bring to the table an incredibly thorough understanding of the inner workings of Washington which is absolutely necessary if Donald Trump is successful in making America great again.
But I see a cloud hanging over Gingrich’s head which Trump must confronted and put to rest. Gingrich was responsible for handing a victory to Bill Clinton in the adoption of the NAFTA, and as Donald Trump has correctly pointed out, the NAFTA deal is perhaps one of the worst trade deals ever made by the United State with foreign powers and has since worked to the dismantling and destruction of America’s domestic manufacturing base.
Almost every one of the dire predictions made by myself and others about the NAFTA have come to pass. But what is even more disturbing is the fact that the NAFTA was a direct assault upon our Constitution and Congress’ exclusive power to regulate commerce with foreign nations. In fact, the NAFTA was never about “free trade”. Instead, it created a “managed trade” which, to this day, is managed by a group unelected by the American people which circumvents Congress’ exclusive power to regulate commerce ___ the majority of whom are foreigners, and who represent the interests of international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America or any nation. See Establishment of Binational Panels who now make arbitrarily binding decisions concerning America’s commerce with Canada and Mexico, and thus circumvents Congress’ constitutionally assigned duty.
The question is, will Newt Gingrich announce to the American People and to Donald Trump that he was wrong in handing the NAFTA deal to Clinton and Global Governance Crowd?
Does Mr. Gingrich still support the notion of a bi-national panel regulating America’s commerce with foreign nations?
Does Mr. Gingrich still support a prohibition on Congress to adopt legislation dealing with the dumping of foreign products in America? See 1904:Review of Final Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Determinations the United States is forbidden to “provide in its domestic legislation for an appeal from a panel decision to its domestic courts.”
Does Newt Gingrich still support American citizens being denied the benefits of our customary due process of law when objecting to sanctions placed upon them by a group unelected by the American People, the majority of whom are foreigners? See 1904: Review of Final Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Determinations the United States is required to amend its statutes and regulations “to ensure that its courts shall give full force and effect, with respect to any person within its jurisdiction, to all sanctions imposed pursuant to the laws of the other Parties to enforce…”
Does Mr. Gingrich now regret having agreed to deprive American citizens access to our judicial system and its customary due process in civil actions involving foreigners? See Annex 1904.15: Amendments to Domestic Laws Schedule of the United States under which the United States is required to “amend section 301 of the Customs Courts Act of l980, as amended, and any other relevant provisions of law, to eliminate the authority to issue declaratory judgments in any civil action involving an antidumping or countervailing duty proceeding regarding a class of kind of Canadian or Mexican merchandise.”
The bottom line is, does Newt Gingrich believe he was wrong in agreeing to the NAFTA deal which circumvents our Constitution and Congress’ exclusive power to regulate commerce with foreign nations?
Hopefully Donald Trump presents these questions to Gingrich and Mr. Gingrich reveals his current thinking on the NAFTA.
To support Hillary Clinton is to support our Global Governance Crowd and their Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority, WTO, NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, and the Trans Pacific Partnership deal __ all designed to circumvent America First trade policies, while fattening the fortunes of international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America or any nation.
