We can't let NAFTA usurp laws of our own Constitution

To the editor:

Henry Kissinger back in 1993 when the forerunner of the USMCA, NAFTA, was being considered by Congress, he called it revolutionary, going on to say that: ".... it is not a conventional trade agreement but the hopeful architecture of a new international system."

In 2002 a like minded agent of this change to make national borders obsolete on the North American Continent, former Mexican President Vicente Fox advocated: "Eventually our long-range objective is to establish with the United States, but also with Canada, our other regional partner, an ensemble of connections and institutions similar to those created by the European Union."

Today, Lopez Obrador's moves to expand the USMCA power must be. stopped. It is tragic that the kind of building blocks Kissinger and his globalist partners needed to create the "architecture" for his international system have already been given to them in the USMCA by our government to create a North American Union (NAU).

It is urgent now to counter this key strategy of globalist leaders over the past several decades. Sold with a deceptive label as "free trade," regional integration through the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCAI) is now moving toward a (NAU). Created and modeled after the European Union (EU) for our hemisphere, it is rapidly moving toward ending American sovereignty. Toward this end, Mexican President Andres Manual Lopez Obrador plans to visit President Biden at the White House in July to expand the power of the USMCA.

It is alarming that all the USMCA mandates below were all accepted by our leaders as being superior to American constitutional domestic law:

1/ Union members will be concerned that It undermines collective bargaining state right-to-work law;

2/ It automatically mandates protections for "gender-identity" and other gender related issues in the workplace;

3/ Promotes UN Agenda 21 & Agenda 30 environmental entanglements;

4/ U.S. laws are subordinated to Global governance organizations and conventions, such as the International Labor Organization, the World Trade Organization and the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty, all of which have not been ratified by the Senate; and

5/ In Chapter 30 of the USMCA , it establishes a "Free Trade" Commission exactly as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the European Union's European Commission does.

This is ridiculous. With the USMCA , why in the world do we need to go to the polls to vote for a Congress or even the president?

To counteract this illegal usurpation of power, we must inform our legislators, both state and federal to exercise their power that apparently has either been forgotten or ignored, authorized in Article VI in paragraph 2, that expresses the superiority of the U.S. Constitution over all international law by saying:

"The Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States." The UMCA has not been made in pursuance of the Constitution.

In order to win this battle for truth against this long accepted falsehood, first educate yourselves to go to war with the enemies of liberty by arming yourself with truth at jbs.org. It is encouraging that our Founders have provided us a solution with their far seeing wisdom. Emphatically urge your federal lawmakers to truly represent you and the Constitution they are sworn to by working to Get us out of the USMCA. Also, demand your state legislators "nullify" all federal overreach of power, especially USMCA/UN laws. For today we inherit the liberty won and fought for by our founding generation: tomorrow let it be said that we of this generation won the battle for truth and the preservation of our liberty and American Independence for our posterity.
