SHELL GAME TRADE
A reality-show President seems slowly to lose his polish to reality-show constituents. If the Republican Party could regain the sense of humor that is grounded in self confidence, perhaps they would elect Liz Cheney as Speaker of The House.
https://www.aol.com/news/across-us-return-democratic-order-141636750.html –WASHINGTON (AP) — There was no violence. Many candidates who denied the legitimacy of previous elections lost and quietly conceded. And few listened when former President Donald Trump tried to stoke baseless allegations of electoral fraud.
For a moment, at least, there’s a sense of normalcy in the U.S.–end of aol info–

https://indiancountrytoday.com/the-press-pool/biden-administration-denies-apache-religious-and-treaty-rights-in-new-oak-flat-ruling —The Biden Administration’s Department of Justice (“DOJ”) filed papers in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday evening trying to stop the traditional Apache from protecting their religious and treaty rights at Oak Flat in eastern Arizona.
On March 18, 2021, Apache Stronghold appealed to the 9th Circuit to stop the destruction of Oak Flat or Chi’chil Bildagoteel by foreign mining companies which violates both the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the 1852 Treaty between the Apache and the U.S. government.–end of indiancountrytoday info–
https://indiancountrytoday.com/the-press-pool/china-seeks-to-loot-apache-sacred-place-for-chinas-own-uses —This week the People’s Republic of China made claims again on the island of Taiwan, this time threatening force and scrambling jet fighters at the U.S. plane approaching Taiwan earlier today with U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi aboard the U.S. passenger jet. Such hypocrisy by China, given that China continues to deny the sovereignty and international human rights of Apaches through China’s major ownership share in the Anglo Australian mining giant, Rio Tinto. And they all plan to destroy our sacred place, Chi’chil Biłdagoteel, which in English means: “Emory Oak extends on a Level”, or “Oak Flat.”

The Obama/Biden Administration was enthusiastic if not manic to “fast-track” the trade agreement called TPP that included language that prioritized the interests of multi-national corporations over interests of local communities.
Obama said that TPP would produce “winners and losers”. Apparently US local communities would be among the losers.
President Biden also raised ongoing concerns about China’s non-market economic practices, which harm American workers and families, and workers and families around the world.–end of whitehouse info–

Scott Kennedy on President Biden’s Meeting with Chinese President

9:47AM–paraphrase–from Scott Kennedy–China is a surveillance state with cameras everywhere one travels.
This seems probable on the topic of surveillance but not different from the USA. Yet to express this probability as though the same isn’t true of the USA is a type of propaganda that has been used so relentlessly as to go unnoticed by many of the public.
These bits of news are relevant when one recalls ongoing commercial/governmental MSM insults against any of the public who speak out against globalism as advanced by government/commerce, with the label of isolationist for those who object. Meanwhile, laws and policies have been enacted that give advantage (winners and losers again) to hierarchical Establishment over interests of We The People. One will share once more due to relevance, the following explanation of this view…..
On the topic of an economy that functions in a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, Establishment seems to have superimposed capitalism over free market principles. Reasons supporting this view—
*Trade agreements promoted by politicians bought into positions of power byway of Citizens United have sent jobs and manufacturing to foreign nations
*Family income has been reduced dramatically due to trade agreements
*Said trade agreements have included language that prioritizes interests of multi-national corporations over local-community human rights and rights of nature
*When manufacturing is predominantly foreign, US consumers are at the mercy of foreign nations and a questionable supply chain
*The Trump tariff was imposed when tariffs are traditionally used to balance import/export ratios to ensure money isn’t flowing out of the US but instead is flowing into the US
*To impose a tariff on imports when manufacturing has been legislatively forced to foreign nations is predatory toward US consumers and supports inflation
*Previous to current Pyramid-Scheme economics, sole-proprietorship business which is the core of free markets, were undermined legislatively in favor of corporate chains
*Recently sole props have used the internet to purchase low-cost products from overseas in order to maintain local-community store fronts
*The Trump tariff short-circuited this ability for sole props to so participate in such global free market activity because a sole prop is taxed personally to the owner and so imposes the tariff directly upon said sole proprietor, while corporations are legislatively taxed more favorably to their business interest
*And so precision predatory behavior toward We The People by corporate/politician collaboration is US economic policy
