Open Letter To Congressman Steve Scalise By J.W. Bryan

Dear Congressman Scalise:

The purpose of this article is to delve deeper into the concerns mentioned in my recent letter to you regarding the USMCA Treaty.  The publication of this letter will hopefully bring more information to concerned Americans about the Treaty.  It will also answer questions from the folks who read and respond to my articles.  I will send it to all of our Louisiana Congressmen and Senators, as well as those in other states.

America’s legislators need to know why we are so concerned and hopefully, some will be drawn to join our cause. I firmly believe that there will be those who shall choose to side with us in the coming weeks, months, and years to aid us in our efforts to protect our sovereignty, our independence, and our liberty.

Of course, I realize that at present, to all appearances, we have congressman and senators who may possibly choose to sell themselves to our enemies, those who seek to destroy us as an independent nation, and individually by violating our God-given right to life, liberty and property. This is a perversion of the law which comes to us through God’s authority. I don’t believe God is just going to let that slide.

Bastiat – Rights from God

Claude Frederic Bastiat stated in his treatise, The Law,

“Life is a gift from God…each of us has a natural right—from God—to defend his person, his liberty, and his property, these are the three basic requirements of life, and the preservation of any one of them is completely dependent upon the preservation of the other two.”

Let us suppose that at some point, the powers that be could say that our liberty, and perhaps even our property, is no longer sustainable, and that we should consider ourselves lucky just to be alive. No! Without liberty and property—there is no life—but only an existence.  They could also decide that they’d only permit life for a certain period of time, just as they’ve decided the murder of 61 million babies in their mothers’ wombs is simply a “choice.”

Even now the United Nations is involved in their promotion of “Agenda 2030” which is designed to destroy the sovereignty of our nation, our liberty and the ownership of property by Americans. Private property, single family homes, and so much more are not socially equitable, so they are not “sustainable” and will have to be eliminated. All of this falls under the UN Agenda 2030 and what they call, “Sustainable Development.”

Tom DeWeese of American Policy Center explains, “According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.”

The principle that Bastiat addressed is completely non-existent in the minds of society’s hierarchy in general.

If the USMCA is ratified, and is implemented according to the texts of it, the result will give the UN nearly complete domestic control of our lives. And the Law, as we know it will be completely destroyed. And that, my dear Congressman, has always been the goal of the United Nations.

Back to Bastiat

Bastiat proceeds further into the origin of law and the basis for its legitimacy when he presents the question, “What is Law?” And he then answers it.

It is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense. Each of us has a natural right—from God—to defend his person, his liberty, and his property. If every person has a right to defend—even by force—his person, his liberty, and his property, then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to unwaveringly protect these rights. Thus, the principle of any group’s rights—its reason for existing, its lawfulness—is based on individual right.

The common force that protects this right cannot logically have any other purpose or any other mission than that for what it acts as a substitute. Since an individual cannot use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force—for the same reason—cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups.

My family and I, and most of the folks around me, are very thankful for what the President has done for us these past three years. However, we are very much concerned about the President’s support of the USMCA. We cannot understand why he could state the disparaging things about the TPP and NAFTA, but speak glowingly about the USMCA.

I have stated, over and over, in my articles, published in NewsWithViews, that evidently President Trump does not know what is in this traitorous agreement. But I recently received an email from one of the readers of my articles who said, “I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I think Trump knows all that’s in the USMCA.” If that is the case, and I realize it could well be, then we are in trouble.

Yet, I cannot believe that the President has only been stringing us along with his declarations when he states, “We will never surrender America’s sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy, America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism.” All this sounded great. But then he said, “The United States is committed to making the United Nations more effective.” Why? The UN is an enemy of freedom.

Unfortunately, Congressman, he has made the U.N. more effective, and the irony of it is that he did it through choosing to support the USMCA, along with choosing to make the U.N. more effective.


There is an immutable principle which came into being with the Creation: All choices, good or bad, result in consequences, both proportionately and in accordance with the nature of the choices. There is no doubt in my mind that what we see transpiring in our nation today is going to bring forth consequences most people could never imagine. As we have seen, our officials and authorities have promoted and supported an invasion of our country. And they have continued to sustain these people even after they have invaded us. Our officials have allowed people to come here whose goal is to supplant their form of government in place of ours.

As we proceed further into the future, our citizens, with help from a few likeminded folks, could possibly come to an understanding that these so-called authorities have acted outside the law, as I wrote in, “When Does Law Become the Outlaw?” They have destroyed the law and replaced it with what is unlawful—and this is a rule of force, which they call “law,” but is only a bastardized, illegitimate, entity that enables them to proceed with their unlawful agenda.

The consequences of this, at some point, could be that in order to restore our rightful liberties, the so-called law will have to be violated to regain the Law.

I realize that what I have written would be inadmissible in court, but that’s not the objective here.  What I am longing to do is to make what I write concerning the law common knowledge among the people that are bogged down in lethargy. If we can only get a tenth of one percent knowledgeable regarding what has happened to our system of justice, and in our governmental operations as a whole, then things will begin to turn around in our favor.

In time, this could result in people beginning to see that without liberty or property—there is no life, only existence. And this enlightening could bring about the consequences I alluded to with reference to the principle that all choices result in consequences.

Patrick Henry said in his classic address,

“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace, but there is no peace. The war is actually begun…our chains are forged; their clanking may be heard across the plains of Boston. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery. What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!”

The following is a quote By Arthur Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society,

“What we are witnessing today is a tactic being implemented once again to shut down anything that would prevent the Conspiracy from being successful in destroying America as a free country and as an example to the rest of the world.”

He is referring to the action of the traitorous judges in America’s courts preventing the President from stopping the invasion of our country through illegal immigration.

The reason for this action by these tyrannical justices is to prevent the president from taking any action in defending our country that would result, in part, in our success in defending it from the designs of the globalists agenda to eliminate our sovereignty as an independent nation.

No one that advances an agenda which destroys, or circumvents, or in any way limits our unalienable rights—has any right to be here. Since our rights come from God, then it follows that God is not going to give rights to those involved in destroying the rights of others. So why is it considered to be legal?

And why are there so many who praise the traitorous trade deals that will result in more Legal Plunder by those who seek to exploit the liberty, and property of others?

The USMCA is worse than NAFTA or the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). If it is ratified, I think it could possibly evolve into a situation that could result in consequences which could lead to what Jefferson said,

“The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

And Congressman Scalise, we may be approaching such a time which, as a result of consequences from evil choices will cause people to think,

“Well, we haven’t any way to go but up. What we have is not worth having, we really don’t have to be worried about losing anything by our resistance—we can’t lose what we ain’t got, so when you come to think about it, it may be that the only way to liberty is through the blood of tyrants—we’ve had plenty of it shed by patriots to no avail.”

We hope and pray that we will never experience a time as this. But it could happen. This link from the Washington Standard is so important; I hope you’ll read it.

Please read what retired attorney and constitutional scholar Publius Huldah has outlined regarding exactly how the USMCA will begin to set up global government in the Northern Hemisphere.

Congressman, I am asking you to go to read the link and examine for yourself, and for Americans—what’s in this sovereignty destroying deal that so many Congressmen and Senators are so enamored with.

Regarding the USMCA, the U.N. can, and will begin taking over our nation through ongoing operations of Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development, and the lies of Climate Change. The UN is already promoting that as a result of “Climate Change,” states must accept refugees from areas affected by it.  What hogwash!

This reveals that the UN will concoct any kind of scheme for the excuse to have more control of people. The Climate Change propaganda is nothing but a despicable lie. The word of God has this to say on the subject: Col. 1: 16 – 17,

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

Also, in Second Peter, there is this:

3:7, But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

All this is in reference to the power and authority of Jesus Christ, so what kind of fool would think that what has been set up by the word can be changed by people?  Only those who believe their power and might overrides the Word of God.
