The War on the U.S.

"In the next century, nations as we know [them] will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." – Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's deputy secretary of state, as quoted in Time, July 20, l992
Economic warfare against the United States will continue as long as mercantilist, protectionist nations can still sell to us, hang onto markets, erode any edge we have in technology, steal what they can't buy, and suck U.S. investment money for their advancement. As long as the ruling establishment negotiates bad trade agreements and joins supranational collectives we will decline economically and politically.
Economic warfare will go on with no end in sight unless our ruling establishment gets a grip and soon. If we continue to operate through guys like Robert Zoellnik or the U.S. State and Commerce departments, we are doomed. If the FCC thinks nothing of allowing foreign ownership of media, just wait for a WTO decision to silence that media.
John Blair, former chief economist for the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Anti-Trust and Monopoly, stated the situation fairly well: "To ignore the pivotal role played by particular individuals who are in positions of power is to do violence to historical accuracy. A recognition that the course of economic events can be influenced by individuals who have the imagination and the power to take advantage of prevailing conditions does not constitute acceptance of a 'conspiracy' theory of history." The ruling establishment; left, right and libertarian, have forgotten the words of Teddy Roosevelt:
"Great corporations exist only because they are created and safeguarded by our institutions; and it is therefore our right and our duty to see that they work in harmony with those institutions. (T. Roosevelt, 1901, first annual message to Congress)
It is also tragic that we no longer produce a great noble class of American elites. Their arrogance and globalist insanity goes back to the late 19th century and continues to impact all of us today.
They have become more venal and self-serving in recent years. Having given over our institutions to cultural Marxists in the '60s, almost as readily they hand over our economic and political future to supranational unelected bureaucracies today.
Don't look for another Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan or JFK to stem the tide. Forget the honesty of a Truman or Eisenhower to call a spade a spade. Our current crop of elite are a mediocre blend of the deaf, dumb and blind.
Christian poet G. K. Chesterton called them what they are: "The New Unhappy Lords."
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger and honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.
