    The current Administration occupying the White House is illiterate on geo-political, business, and economic negotiations. Macro and Micro trends run right over the Posse that prefers virtue signaling

    Maersk Shipping has chosen China and the Globalists over America.

    One of the most power full shipping lines in the world (built by buying one of the last great American Shipping Companies, Sealand) has chosen to walk away from their participation in Jones Act Shipping and participation with Transportation Command (TRANSCOM).

    This should be a screaming alarm bell this morning in the halls of the Pentagon, Foggy Bottom, Departments of Transportation and Commerce, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and the West Wing. But alarm bells like this are drowned out by transgender and “renewable energy” virtue signalling.

    If a nation doesn’t build things, build things that build things, and have a pervasive Merchant Fleet and modern shipyard infrastructure, they are not a nation.

    A coffeeshop on every street corner and a cubicle farm workforce of activists writing environmental impact statements for non-profits is not an economy, it’s a nation in decline.

    This is one more reason to establish a Jones Act 2.0 environment for a return of a dominant US Flag Merchant Fleet secured by a much larger Navy. It’s also additional fodder for establishing a US Flag Boskalis like Heavy Lift Fleet for Naval recovery and regeneration during conflict.

    When it’s not needed for Naval purposes, this specialized Heavy Lift Fleet can be leased to support large scale infrastructure projects at home and in other countries seeking U.S. Companies as alternatives to the Chinese Belt and Road ponzi scheme.

    There was a time when working with Maersk on Green Passport and E-Seaport, when hearing the word "Maersk" my heart would skip a beat... they were by far the very best of Naval Engineers, I had ever had the honor to work with... John Mills thank you for this article. My heart will cease skipping a beat... this was an eye-opener. Not surprised, only deeply disappointed they couldn't hold the line. As for the halls of the Pentagon... they betrayed our country a long time ago, and we all know it.
