In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, U.S. Cattlemen's Association chief Dr. Brooke Miller explains that American trade and agricultural policies are rigged against domestic producers in favor of foreign multi-national corporate giants. For instance, the government allows foreign cattle producers to deceive American consumers by falsely labeling their beef as being American sourced. Miller discussed the fact that these risks to U.S. food security are a national security issue, something that has been brought to light by the coronavirus crisis. He also explains how globalist organizations and agreements such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) are harming U.S. sovereignty and economic productivity. This is not a free market, Dr. Miller warned. Finally, the PRIME Act introduced by Representative Thomas Massie, who recently spoke to TNA about it, was discussed.
The supreme court of world trade, otherwise known as the “appellate body” of the World Trade Organization, will cease functioning on Wednesday. The court is supposed to have seven members but it currently has four vacancies, with two more members retiring on Tuesday. That leaves one active judge, two short of the number required to rule on international trade disputes.
