Senate Overwhelmingly Passes Trump’s USMCA Agreement

https://www.breitbart.com/poli...mps-usmca-agreement/



The Senate overwhelmingly approved the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement on Thursday, delivering President Donald Trump a major legislative victory in a presidential election year.

Lawmakers voted 89 to 10 to pass the legislation ratifying the agreement, sending it the White House for the president’s signature. The development comes one day after China agreed to purchase an additional $200 billion in U.S. goods and services over the next two years as part of their “phase one” trade agreement.

“Today the Senate will send this landmark agreement to the president’s desk,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement prior to the upper chamber’s vote. “Quite a week of substantive accomplishments for the nation, for the president, and for international trade.”

The House approved the agreement 358-41 on December 19th, following more than a year of talks between White House officials and congressional leaders.

The USMCA maintains much of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but will usher in new trade considerations, such as 75 percent of vehicle parts must be made in the three countries to be tariff-free. Additionally, 45 percent of car parts must be made by workers earning a $16 hourly wage. Further, the deal will expand U.S. farmers’ access to Canada’s dairy market.

President Donald Trump signed the deal with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and then-Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in November of last year. At the time, the president called it the “largest, most significant, modern and balanced trade agreement in history.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer lauded the agreement’s signage, saying it is expected to create up to 589,000 American jobs and spur additional economic growth.

“House passage of the USMCA with such huge bipartisan support is a major milestone and shows just how much President Trump is successfully changing U.S. trade policy so it works for the benefit of American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses,” said Lighthizer. “The USMCA is expected to create between 176,000 and 589,000 new American jobs and substantially increase economic growth. The International Trade Commission’s analysis shows that USMCA will have a more positive impact on our economy, jobs, and wages than any other U.S. trade agreement ever negotiated.”

The Senate is receiving the articles of impeachment against President Trump today. We should not advance any more judicial nominees while we take on this solemn responsibility of the president’s trial for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Ed Markey Sen. from MA is going to be in for a big reelection fight this year. Young Joe Kennedy III is running in the primary against him. I'd put my money on Kennedy. Markey is a fraud. I don't even know if there will be a Republican running for this seat.

I'm confused. If this is a treaty, why is the House voting on it at all?

IIRC, per the US Constitution, the Senate ratifies treaties. The House is not involved. Or am I having a senior moment?




The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

Nah, you (nor anyone else here) can't advance her career and make her POTUS, so she's not interested.

She only jumps in bed for money and power.

Correction - Toomey is a rather big shitweasel!

He voted against PDJT's emergency funding for a border wall, at the time when 10K-15K were on the march up thru Central America and Mexico to invade the U.S.A.

Of course, he is also one of the poster child soy-boys for ever oh so 'reasonable' gun control.

Fascinating listening to Schumer describe how we can’t let foreign governments and individuals interfere with our US elections but his home state of NY is registering non-citizens to vote. That Schumer is a real straight shooter for sure.

Kamala is a dolt.

Trump wasn't charged with high crimes or misdemeanors. It was obstruction of Congress and whatever the other one was.

from CTH

https://theconservativetreehou...chedule/#more-181061

Adopted today by unanimous consent:

A Summons to the White House notifying them of the impeachment trial will be issued by the Senate and delivered by Saturday January 18th, 2020, 6:00pm,

The House of Representatives (impeachment managers) have a deadline of 5:00pm Saturday, January 18th, 2020, for the filing of their impeachment brief to the Senate.

The White House (defense lawyers) have a response deadline of 5:00pm Monday, January 20th, for their response to the House impeachment brief.

The House of Representatives (impeachment managers) have a deadline of Noon Tuesday, January 21st, for their rebuttal brief to the White House defense brief.

The Senate Trial begins at 1:00pm Eastern, Tuesday January 21st, 2020.

Senators will not be allowed to bring their cell phones or any electronic device into the Senate chamber while the trial is underway.

Following Thursday’s senate swearing-in and administration of oath, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he will try to force votes on witnesses on Tuesday. Democrats have called for subpoenaing four witnesses including former National Security Advisor John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is keeping the construction of the senate impeachment resolution, laying out the rules, quiet. As of this moment no-one knows the details of the resolution being assembled by the Senate majority.

CTH has been warning those who are interested, since last year, not to underestimate the scheming and planning of the Democrats and Lawfare in the Senate phase. The entire apparatus of the resistance network within government is aligned with the impeachment effort. Nothing is happenstance and everything unfolding in the media is pre-planned.

Just like the media worked hand-in-glove with the DOJ, FBI, CIA and intelligence officials to construct the fraudulent Russia conspiracy case against Trump; and just like those same administrative state officials and media worked hand-in-glove with the Mueller investigation to advance the fraudulent special counsel effort; those exact same participants are working together to frame the appearance of criminal conduct within this impeachment effort. Same people, same purposes and intents.

All of the media headlines are pre-scripted by narrative engineers who have been given advanced notification and copy of the needs. All of the players within the headlines are working in unison; this includes the resistance operative inside government offices such as the DOJ. All media stories are pre-engineered, sequenced, and scripted with a template provided by political operatives.

It took a long time for President Trump’s allies to realize the 2018 Pelosi rule changes were directly connected to the 2019 activity and the construction of a fraudulent whistle-blower complaint. Many people, unfortunately including most on our side, just don’t grasp the amount of time and energy the resistance operatives put into the pre-planning.

The recent discovery of Mary McCord working on behalf of the impeachment effort should have been a bucket of cold water in the face of those who keep downplaying the risk. I hope the independent researchers and new-media have awakened to the reality that surrounds all of us.
