Republican Senator Ron Johnson Tells President Trump “it makes no sense to try and bring back high labor manufacturing jobs”…

Sharing is Caring!
Yesterday President Trump invited the media to keep their cameras on during a round-table discussion on trade.  He did this for a reason.  President Trump wanted the American voters to watch Republican politicians demand that he stop trying to bring manufacturing jobs to the United States.
In essence, Trump doing what Trump does best, played the role of Toto and pulled back the curtain on the Republican anti-American corporate business agenda.  The republicans in attendance never paused to reflect upon the sunlight or the reason for their specific invitations. They are comfortable back-room deals and POTUS Toto relaxed them perfectly.
One by one the Republicans took-the-bait and fully exposed themselves.  Lamar Alexander, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey and Roy Blout all took turns telling POTUS to quit trying to save American high-wage jobs, drop the national economic view and just accept multinational corporate globalism.
The subsequent full-throated establishment display stands as one of the greatest plays of the Trump administration to date. However, it was Republican Senator Ron Johnsonfrom Wisconsin who really went the full distance:

[Transcript] […] In Wisconsin, a big manufacturing state, in seven years I have not visited one manufacturer that could hire enough people. That was certainly my experience in the last 20, 25 years. For a host of reasons, we tell our kids you have to get a four-year degree. We pay people not to work. So we do need to be concerned about, in such a tight labor market, do we have enough workers in manufacturing.
So my final point is, it makes no sense for me to try and bring back high labor-content manufacturing to America. We need to do the value added things. And so I would just say, proceed with real caution there.  (more)

Most people are becoming increasingly aware of the Republican agenda to keep the interests of multinational corporations at the top of their priority list; however, it is still rather remarkable to listen to an entire room of them admit, openly, their agenda is to work against the U.S. middle-class, support mass immigration, and keep the U.S. economy on the “service-driven” path.
Within trade policy is where President Trump breaks away from the modern Republican views. This is the heart of MAGA.  Trade and immigration is where President Trump fractures the party apparatus of both Republicans and Democrats.
Lastly, don’t expect the “corporate conservative media”, Fox News, Ingraham, Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Salem Media etc, to showcase these revelations; it is against their financial interests to do so.
Senator Johnson’s eye-opening remarks begin around 32:00 of the video below [prompted, just hit play]:  {transcript here}

  1. Every year the US is incapable of producing more and more things as the materials miners and feed in suppliers close up shop. Even US military uniforms are made overseas. The screens in high tech battlefield gear is coming from Asia. Magnets, which are in more products than you might think, are only made in the US by a couple of boutique companies that supply very high cost markets with custom products. If the steel needed for a product comes from Korea and the North attacks the South, no more steel and your business is a goner too.
    If the US continues to lose its manufacturing base, it won’t be long before we can’t defend ourselves much less the rest of the world. We’ll be a large agricultural economy run by 7 or 8 mega corporations that are working every minute to robotize as much of the process as possible and get rid of even the sub-minimum wage jobs. Service jobs don’t generate wealth. They are there to let a certain number of people spend more time on things that make more money. Extracting raw materials and turning them into a product (adding value) is how wealth is created. Babysitting other people’s kids and filling out tax forms for strangers doesn’t. Financial markets are just a way to manipulate money to make money from those that bet wrong. Again, no value added.
    The college generation of today is finding out that the balance on their student loans vs. what they are being offered in salary is a gap that’s going to be very hard to close. Somebody silly enough to finance a degree in Classical French Literature may want to look seriously at emigrating to another country before the loan sharks ruin their lives with garnishments, bank account confiscation and nasty entries on background checks. They should have learned plumbing and taken the wage bonus to work the night shift. Just look at what it costs to get a plumber out to fix a pipe after 6pm!
