Henry Kissinger's NAFTA and Why It Must Be Abolished, not Simply Re-Negotiated

by Tim Brown, Freedom Outpost:

Just how important is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)  in the general scheme of things?  This is a question that the head of The John Birch Society, Arthur Thompson has addressed, and we should give heed to what he is saying.

NAFTA was on the radar as President Donald Trump entered the White House saying that it was a bad deal for Americans and would be renegotiated.

In fact, he said that the 1994 NAFTA, interestingly signed by Trump's then presidential opponent's husband, Bill Clinton (though it was negotiated by George H. W. Bush), was the worst trade deals in the history of the united States.

 Trump promised that NAFTA would be one of his first things he dealt with in his first 100 days of office.

This leads us to Art Thompson's commentary concerning Henry Kissinger and NAFTA.

"Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State for President Richard Nixon, put it this way," said Thompson.

"It will represent the most creative step towards a new world order taken by any group of countries since the end of the Cold War... The revolution sweeping the Western Hemisphere points to an international order based on cooperation... It is this revolution that is at stake in the ratification of NAFTA." -Henry Kissenger, Los Angeles Times, 1993

Thompsons quoted Kissinger from the Los Angeles Times as saying that what Congress had before it in NAFTA was "not a conventional trade agreement, but the architecture of a new international system."
