For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN. Their four horseman of the American apocalypse: George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like.

Death to NAFTA & Building the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ

This election revealed that one of the issues that American’s care deeply about is jobs. In the past two decades we have seen a dramatic and devastating change in the job out look for most citizens.

How Many Nails Does it Take to Seal a Coffin?

How many lopsided trade deals does it take to teach a nation they are being sold down the river? Apparently it takes one more than we have. The next time you have a few moments free between jobs, give the 5,544 deal a read.

I’m Standing With Pat

In its effort to mobilize support for the latest round of Free Trade giveaways, that bastion of neocon Globalization, the Wall Street Journal has tried to use Pat Buchanan as a whipping boy.
