|Keep in mind that he who does not defend the truth is an accomplice in|
attacking it. Likewise, he who does not speak out against a crime against
humanity is an accomplice to the widespread crime that the person ignores.
The media praise of Wuerl contradicted itself in the following way:
"Despite the triple cover-up that he was caught performing in Pittsburgh,
and despite the fact that Wuerl reinstated John Hoehl and Edward Huff,
as well as having made the invasive homosexual and retaliator Fr. James
Torquato a parish pastor, Donald Cardinal Wuerl was heralded as a pro-
tector of children. Yet, he elected to remain silent toward a corporate prac-
tice that victimizes children far more frequently than does the predatorship
of priests who should never have been ordained in the first place."
That practice is child sweatshop labor profiteering. Needless to say, Cardinal
Wuerl has been equally indifferent toward the sweatshop labor imposed upon
foreign adults. However, adults are the ones upon whom children depend for
their survival. This indifference, therefore, envelopes Donald Wuerl in an aura
of razor wire. Meanwhile, Wuerl spent 18 years living here, in a mansion which
sold for $2 million after Wuerl left for Washington DC.
|Wuerl's DC residence turned out to be a $43 million structure situated along |
the very luxurious Embassy Row. A testimony to the deceit of Wuerl's praisers.
The article made it sound as if Wuerl were always speaking on behalf of
the worker, "both poor & immigrant," throughout the years. Well, a num-
ber of us, including me personally, tried to get Wuerl to speak out against
Sweatshop profiteering. In fact, I petitioned for the official "approval" of
founding and establishing an official "apostolate" (Catholic action guild),
but Wuerl never even responded to the request. Other persons and/or en-
tities tried to get Wuerl active in countering sweatshop labor profiteering.
But, Wuerl remained kept his decades-long silence in the subject. Such
negligence ... such omission ... such indifference ... is an ongoing mortal
sin, because the more that is given to you, the more is expected from you.
Wuerl is like the Marathon Race fraud who sneaks into the running
lanes at the 24th mile post, all the while pretending to have started at
the starting line.
Then comes a spotlight moment for Wuerl, and he suddenly makes it sound
as if he was the heir of the Caesar Chevaz movement, all along. Wuerl was
no such thing. He was indifferent for decades, and only gave attention to the
affluent and government contract income. Wuerl refrained from speaking out
against the sins which cries to Heaven for Vengeance, known as Defraudment
of Laborers of their Wages. If he were the champion of the underdog worker,
I would have been granted my apostolate years ago. Wuerl committed a long-
term sin of omission, being heartless to the pain of exploited workers.
Wuerl's only concern for immigrants was in to how much government con-
tract money he could get in social service contracts, in their name. That was
it. Only money for his former diocese was his motive.
I was the champion for labor. The others were champions for labor. We
were all ignored by Wuerl. We could have accomplished great things, if it
weren't for the same Donald Wuerl blocking our road and then looking the
other way, all the while doing absolutely nothing for the plight of exploited
workers. Rather, he performed the Sacrament of Confirmation on the one
man who caused NAFTA to become a nightmarish reality for many a worker.
The fact that Wuerl confirmed NAFTA Newt without requiring Gingrich to pub-
licly denounce his public sin of labor exploitation legislation shows that Wuerl
did NOT advocate for the poor worker.
The Time Magazine article about Wuerl is a lie, mostly in the form of a sleight
of hand semantic deceptions. Wuerl only goes to the popular side and acts as if
he always were part of it. When the pro-Bush & Gingrich worlds had the upper-
hand, Wuerl was pro-Bush and pro-Gingrich. Then suddenly, the labor people
take the upper-hand and Wuerl switches sides, patting its leaders on the back,
acting like he's one of them. Always remember, "Satan masquerades as an
angel of light." So does Wuerl.
Razor Wire Wuerl
Wuerl has been silent for decades toward the closest current thing to the
Nazi concentration camp network. In as much, Wuerl's silence toward
sweatshop labor profiteering is Wuerl's tacit approval of that internation-
al crime against humanity. Furthermore, it indicates that, if he were a
bishop in the 1940s, he would have remained completely silent toward the
Nazis ill treatment of the Jews, Gypsies, mentally afflicted, and dissents
such as the Catholic priests who met death in a Nazi concentration camp.
Yet, Wuerl had more than enough time to provide two parish venues for the
Sodomite Masses which were euphemistically called "Dignity Masses." Per-
haps foreign sweatshop workers are not white enough for Wuerl to have any
concern for them. Perhaps they are not glamorous enough. Perhaps it's that
they don't have the political or financial power for Wuerl use.
One of the Four Sins that Cry to Heaven for Vengeance
Formerly known as the Defraudment of Laborers of their Wages, slave labor
profiteering has long since been identified in Catholic Church teaching as one
of the four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance. Bishops are morally obligat-
ed to see to it that adherents to the Catholic faith live free of sins of accessory,
including all which involves sweatshop labor profiteering and things similar.
This additionally includes the obligation of bishops to approve initiatives and
apostolates designed to end the Catholic faithful's cooperation with all crimes
against humanity. Incidentally, apostolates used to be known as Catholic ac-
The synonym for sin of accessory is sin of cooperation. In the case of sweat-
shop profiteering, it involves cooperation with corporate sin. Corporate sin is
not limited to the activities of corporations. Rather, a corporate sin is one that
is given the fuel to perpetuate itself via the cooperation of an entire society.
The word, corporate, is derived from the word, body. Thus, a corporate sin
is an evil that is supported by the body politic of the region or nation where
it is committed.
That is to say, a corporate sin occurs when the vast majority of society makes
itself an accessory to that sin. Nazi Germany is the quintessential example of
corporate sin and the sin of cooperation. In addition, Corporate sin is equally
known as social scandal. It involves what is known as the Sin of Cooperation.
Vatican II states that the Church by its nature is missionary. This means that
the Church has the innate instinct to rally to causes, establish initiatives, and as
Saint Paul phrased it, to "fight the good fight." In sequence, Pope Paul VI once
stated that the renewal of the temporal order is the vocation of the laity. Thus,
bishops are morally obligated to provide the laity with the assistance necessary
to fulfill its vocation. Wuerl did no such thing at any time, despite the fact that
he has been a reigning bishop for 26 years. A reigning bishop is known as a lo-
with China, the average Chinese wage was 24 cents an hour. By 2010, it was
75 cents an hour, for a Cantonese worker. Today, the wage continues to depend
on the region, and ranges from $1.23 in Guangxi to $2.58 in Beijing, according
to the 2013 law that mandated the Chinese minimum wage to equal to 40% of
the average urban wage. Yet, there are reports, such as one from Business Insid-
er, which mark the average Chinese salary at 80 cents an hour. Thus, we again
have inconsistent reporting.
What is known is that there have been worker suicides, threats of collective
suicides, rioting, protests, and physically demanding living conditions. In
addition, Vietnam, with its low wage rate, has become the new China.
In sequence, China has become the world's biggest toxic waste dump. The
NY Times and Washington Post reported in 2014 that China has become an
exporter of pollution, where its toxic air has made its way to the West Coast
of the United States. The sweatshop economy and lack of an environmental
conscience in China caused this. Human life means nothing to those in pow-
In as much, if Wuerl were the holy man Ann Rodgers, Bishop David Zubik,
and the pig-resembling Bill "$475,000-a-year" Donohue make Wuerl out to
be, then the same Donald Wuerl would have been speaking out against the
American corporate world's exploitation of foreign sweatshop labor, like a
prophet decades ago. Instead, the Elevator Shoes Kid, Donald Wuerl kept
his mouth shut for decades and lived his Marie Antoinette lifestyle. Wuerl
could have come-off as a great prophetic hero, but remained silent where a
voice was needed. There is NO holiness is a person-in-power who remains
completely silent in an era of intense human suffering caused by other hu-
mans in power. The sufferings in China was all man-made and it couldn't
have come to be without the business sector of the United States.
The minimum wages of other low-waged nations, as of 2014, go as follows:
Sierra Leone: 3 cents an hour. Mali where the French intervened: 27 cents.
Mexico: 61 cents. Vietnam: $90 to $128 per month depending upon region.
The Philippines: 61 cents. Pakistan: 51 cents. Afghanistan: 57 cents.
Armenia: 65 cents. Nepal: 45 cents. Nicaragua: 52 cents. Bangladesh:
Monthly wage went from $38 to $66 recently. The Ukraine: 91 cents
Other minimum wages go as follows, per hour:
Australia: $16.88. Luxembourg: $14.24 France: $12.22 Ireland: $11.09
The UK: $10.02. New Zealand: $11.18 The Netherlands: $10.99
Spain: $5.57 Portugal: $4.19 Taiwan: $3.88. Poland: $2.97
End of preliminary statistical notes.
Americans wear clothing made by overseas sweatshop employees. Americans
buy appliances made in sweatshop nations. In almost every American home,
you will find the phrase, Made in China, more often than Made in USA, no
matter what be the category of not-very-durable durable good found in the-
typical American home. America is no longer the land of the free. It's now
the Home of the Enslaver.
Sweatshop people don't have lives. Nor were they given any appreciable identity.
As a result, sweatshop employees would be found with slit wrists, time and time
again. Eventually came the implementation of the suicide net, in order to prevent
sweatshop employers from hurling themselves off of roofs.
Americans hold sweatshop workers in a living death, be these the workers in Bang-
ladesh, China, Vietnam, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc. Now, some Americans keep
these workers lodged in this state of slavery out of cowardice, while others do so
out of selfish negligence. Yet, others do so out of greed.
Why would anyone want to rule over a humanity that had its humanity stripped
away from itself? Who wants to rule over a society of humans-made-robot or
humans-made-animal ... or even humanity-turned-zombie? The state of the
people ruled is a reflection on the rulers. The makers of ghettos are ghettos
within themselves, no matter how plush be their domiciles and how high be
their bank accounts. Concerning the greed part ...
The Trickle-away Effect, aka Trickle-away Economics
The United States does NOT make money from importing merchandise made by
low-waged foreign sweatshop workers. It has been constantly losing through this
type of importation. While Communist Chinese merchandise comes to America,
American dollars goes to Maoist China. So too is this the case with other foreign
nations whose workforce can't afford to buy American products and/or services,
in any type of appreciable, two-way, fair trade, economic traffic. No foreign na-
tion pays the United States to take its merchandise. In fact, Chinese Communist
dictators do not even give Americans a commission for selling their merchandise.
America is not making out like a bandit in a business practice which constitutes
a crime against humanity. There is only a small percentage of Americans who
make out like bandits, often sending their spoils to overseas tax havens. Mean-
while, the rest of America finds itself on the losing end of the steadily diminish-
ing currency flow, in increments. This chronic loss has been in the trillions of
dollars. This is the trickle-away effect.
A flow of American dollars goes into Communist Dictatorial China, as well to
each of the NAFTA nations, never to return to the States, without America find-
ing itself in an increasing state of treasury bond debt to foreign entities. The
money lost in Republican Party Economics is called the U.S. Trade Balance
DEFICIT. The total deficit for the past 10 years has been $5.929 trillion
(2003 to 2012). The accumulative deficit for the past 20 years (for goods &
services) has been $7.988 trillion (1993 to 2012). For goods only, the 20 yr
U.S. International Trade Balance Deficit has been $9.236 trillion.
That's MINUS $9,839,000,000,000.
All gone. Bye bye. No more. Au revoir. Not even a post card. In addition, sweatshop
workers threatened suicide, on account of the harsh conditions in the compounds that
manufacture the products which go to the United States. This means that Americans
have become unconscionable slave drivers by proxy, all the while destroying their own

ducts. That is to say, buying foreign is fine, if foreign occasionally buys American, in
return. Thus, fair trade is a necessity, in order for foreign trade not to result in disast-
er for one of the two trading nations. Fair trade requires a reasonably balanced two-
way street of import and export traffic.
Concerning America, Chinese workers would not have been able to have afforded
American products anyway, beyond wheat products, in Equitable Foreign Trade, ev-
en if America had not ceased being a manufacturer of household consumer products
in significant quantities.
Imagine the trade balance deficit money as dollars flowing through a tube into a pro-
tectionist dictatorship or two ... or three. This costs American jobs. In fact, this en-
tirely prevents the creation of many American mid-size business start-ups.
The Economic Downside Effect of
Foreign Slave Labor Profiteering
Foreign slave labor profiteering achieves the following results:
- Increases an offending nation's international trade deficit.
- Reduces the same nation's gross domestic product.
- Deceases the offending nation's per capita income.
At this point, view the United States trade balance deficit through
the past ten years, in its trade of goods (not services) with China,
U.S. IMPORTS U.S. EXPORTS
from sweatshop China to protectionist China

The NET equals: MINUS $2,552,000,000,000 - That's only trade with China.
This is goods only.
The Total Deficit, as is charted below, is MINUS $5,929,000,000,000.
This comprises trade with all nations. This comprises goods and services.
The hypocrisy is that trillions of American dollars stayed in the permanent posses-
sion of the Chinese Communist Dictatorship, in the name of Democracy and
Capitalism, as well as Republican Party Values.
Now, view the total 10 yr U.S. trade balance acct, concerning trade with all nations,
from 2003 to 2012:
Concerning GOODS only GOODS and SERVICES
2012 minus $735 billion minus $540 billion
2011 minus $737 billion minus $588 billion
2010 minus $645 billion minus $500 billion

2005 minus $780 billion minus $708 billion
2004 minus $663 billion minus $605 billion
2003 minus $540 billion minus $490 billion
Total: minus $7.088 261 trillion minus $5.929 trillion
Refer to the following link:
In addition, the total/aggregate U.S. Trade Balance Deficit for only the month
of November 2012 rose $6.6 billion, to $48.7 billion (for that one month only.)
This means that the Trade Gap Rate rose by 15.9%. As I have previously stat-
ed, if this Trade Balance Deficit behavior continues, America will be a political
entity in the history books, compared to the Argentina which, at one time, was
regarded a world power.
Thus ends the mystery as to why millions of Americans had the hardest time
finding employment; especially those of a livable wage.
At this point, repeat after me: "That's a lot of sweatshops."
A Crime Committed upon the Parent
is a Crime Committed upon the Child
and Visa Versa
An injustice thrust upon adults is one that is equally forced upon the children of those
adults. Poverty in the home of the parent is poverty in the home of the child. Sweat-
shop labor imposed upon adults is an evil that also assails children.
'Forced to stand for 24 hours, suicide nets, toxin exposure and
explosions': Inside the Chinese factories making iPads for Apple
And it came to pass, as the first decade of the 21st Century progressed, that right
wing conservative business entities saw to it that religious objects and Christmas
ornaments would be made in sweatshops. The people tagged as the hard work-
ing moral majority negated the purpose for the coming of Christ, doing so in the
name of sacred rites. All the while, they made money on interest-bearing instru-
ments and extremely cheap labor, doing absolutely nothing in the process.
And it also came to pass that no Christmas gift was being made at the North Pole
by elves. Rather, they were being made in Chinese and Bangladesh sweatshops by
severely underpaid workers, some of whom applied razor blades to their wrists, in
order to kill the pain that the Reaganite Moral Majority were collectively inflicting
And it furthermore came to pass, as the 21st Century progressed, that millions held
Christianity in contempt, being that millions were deceived into thinking that Ameri-
can Corporate Predatory Greed was the religion of the Nazarene rabbi who was put
to a Roman death shortly after he drove Money Changers from the Jerusalem Temple.
When the Nazarene entered Jerusalem, the Jews placed palm branches before him.
Within a week, the Romans ended up driving nails into him. Today, the right wing
masters of hypocrisy and greed crucify the Nazarene anew.
Humanity then became enlightened as to what the Protestant Work Ethic really is.
It's the incessant practice of using African slaves, Irish Catholic immigrants, East-
ern European immigrants, Chinese sweatshop workers, and similar victims to do
the Protestants' work for them.
In the words of the woman who was once the premier expert in student loan con-
solidation, "Now, that labor's cheap, human life has become cheap." (in the eyes
of right wing moral majority conservatives.) In the Nineteenth Century, the States
that comprised the Confederate South used local chattel slavery to achieve their
hallowed Protestant work ethic. In the 21st Century, the same States and other
ones used Slavery by Proxy, as in foreign sweatshop labor profiteering. It's the
same Jefferson Davis hypocrisy, done in the name of "States' Rights" and the
"Moral Majority" which is neither moral nor a majority.
Historic fact: In the month of August 2011, the Trade Balance Deficit with
China alone, increased by 7.42%, to $29 billion. This is the statistic for one
month of trading, in terms of goods and services. This was a new record at the
time. In as much, China came out on top for the 304th consecutive month, in
its trading with the United States.
Furthermore, the United States has not had a trade balance surplus in trading
with the Chinese Communist Dictatorship since April of 1986. This amounts
to 28 years of money leaking into a dictatorship, by the billions per month.
America is a leaking ship soon to capsize. It is now the Year 2014. The
United States has gone over 335 consecutive months accumulating a trade
balance deficit, in commerce with China.
Here is the irony: In August 2011, corporate greed breaks a new record, to the
detriment of the 90% of the rest of America. The following month began the
showdown with corporate greed, in the form of the worldwide OWS movement.
FoxNews, in a predictable fashion, defamed the surprisingly peaceful people who
elected to assert their First Amendment Rights. All the while, official statistics
prove that the First Amendment people of Zuccotti Park were generally correct.
Greed has been destroying America all along, and sweatshop importation has
been the vehicle doing so.
Now, the most current news (at the time of this writing) is that the monthly
Trade Balance Deficit,, in trading with China, has decreased (narrowed) in
February and March 2013. In fact, the total U.S. Trade Balance Deficit de-
creased. Yet, it was still woefully significant ... detrimental to the US money
supply. In January, the trade deficit in trade with China was $27.8 billion. In
February, it was $23.4 billion lost to the quintessential sweatshop profiteer na-
tion. In March, the amount lost to a China notorious for its civil rights abuses
was $17.8 billion. Money lost to China, in unfair trade practices, for the first
three months of the Year 2014, in goods alone, was $153 billion.
The Laws Against this Type of Profiteering Were
Already on the Books, in United States Federal Law.
It wouldn't have required any courage for any public figure to have stepped
forth and initiate movements designed to end America's complicity with slave
labor profiteering. This is because laws against it are already on United States
law books, as in Section 307 of the 1930 Tariff Act, along with the May 2000
amendment to that act. Both are found in 19 USC 1307. How much does
NAFTA conflict with this?
Despite the Law, Sweatshop Labor
Importation Has Been Rampant
There is a loophole in the 1930 Tariff Act. The law doesn't prohibit the impor-
tation of indentured/slave/convict/forced labor products "which are not mined,
produced, or manufactured in such quantities in the United States as to meet the
consumptive demands of the United States." In addition, there are recent trade
agreements that don't require the enforcement of morally needed international
labor laws. This means that foreign workers stand in direct jeopardy of being
brutally abused, due to no present legal recourse, short of the Nuremberg case
law authority. Plus, there is the allegation that the 1930 Tariff Act is not being
The evidence is publicly evident. Sweatshop labor, forced labor, and plantation
labor is rampant throughout the modern world in general. So, is the use of min-
ors as combat soldiers. Many products made by laborers defrauded of their
wages have been entering American docks and airports for years. It's equi-
valent to receiving stolen property on a grand scale. It has robbed America
of its money supply.

When You Liberate Others, You Liberate Yourself
A properly paid foreign worker has a way of increasing product demand for
Amercan products, even from a third party nation. For example, properly paid
Chinese workers might only buy from Europe. Increased European revenue
might result in Europe importing more from America, thereby bringing add-
ed income to America. Such a thing puts American workers back to work,
assuming that the level of manufacturing will increase in the United States,
so that workers will be in demand. Such a thing can also enable mid-sized
entrepreneurs to either compete in smaller scaled markets or more easily en-
ter the ranks of subcontractor, simply by virtue of increased demand.
Slave Labor Profiteering is Even an Injustice
to the Citizenry of the Nation that Engages in it
Foreign slave labor profiteering results in unfair advantages over the citizens
of the nation that practices it. This is because those who profit from foreign
slave labor steal economic power from the multitudes, and in the process, they
steal multiple advantages from their fellow countrymen. That is to say, they
cheat in order to get their standing in life, and that is unfair to everyone else.
After all, the average entrepreneur cannot compete with the low wage advan-
tage that these corporations use for their selfish gain, at the expense of the
US Trade Balance Account and the Gross Domestic Product, as well as the
per capita income. Foreign slave labor profiteering, therefore, is even an
act of violence committed against an offending nation's own citizenry.
A Coast to Coast Crime
If you deny that you are part of this practice, simply go into your closet and
read the labels on your clothing. Then go into your kitchen and read the la-
bels on your appliances. Go next throughout your house, your place of work,
and elsewhere, reading the labels on the newer merchandise. If you have any
merchandise from a sweatshop, then the practice of slave labor profiteering
has reached your life.
In addition, if you work for a sweatshop profiteering corporation, you're in-
volved. You are an accessory to the fact. This includes what you find un-
der your Christmas tree.
