Boehner Punishes Republicans for Opposing Secret Obamatrade

Two hundred mainstream GOP Congressmen cheer as Boehner punishes Republicans who opposed giving special unilateral trade authority to Barack Obama. It used to be a total mystery to me how Germany could produce the Nazi regime so quickly, and with such lethal outcomes. How could the German people allow—even participating through election—the rise of such a vicious regime? They had the catalyst of WWI; all the United States required was a single attack on 9-11. I no longer wonder at all. Read more […]

Obamatrade Immigration Rules Relax Standards for Turkey and Pakistan

Turkey and Pakistan are part of the Trade In Services Agreement and will get easier immigration rules. What could go wrong? As I wrote yesterday, the Wikileaks documents show that the TISA alters immigration rules according to Breitbart’s report. They give the president more authority over immigration. But I had missed some of the implications because I did not think about who was part of the agreements. The constant mention of the “Trans Pacific Partnership” kept me focused on countries Read more […]

The New American on Why We Should Oppose Obamatrade

They give seven reasons to oppose Obamatrade and any one of them is more than enough. From the New American: “7 Reasons Why Trade Promotion Authority/Fast Track Must Be Defeated.” In our companion article “10 Reasons Why You Should Oppose the TPP and TTIP,” we detail some of the most extreme dangers presented by President Obama’s two mammoth pseudo-free trade agreements, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). On May 22, the Read more […]

Wikileaks Shows Secret Trade Deal Includes Giving Obama More Immigration Authority

Breitbart.com analyzed the wikileak documents and found a “chapter” on executive immigration authority. Thanks to Wikileaks, we already know that privacy is compromised by the trade deal. Since Congress is set to give Barack Obama special fast track authority, it becomes almost certain that the treaty will be passed. So we effectively have Congress voting an Obamatrade bill into law in order to find out what’s in it. Pelosi was apparently an innovator and model for Republicans when she Read more […]

Paul Ryan and Barack Obama Working Together on an Unread Trade Bill

Since everyone knows that Paul Ryan and the President are allied, CNN reports it as if it is an irony. No, it is business as usual. This CNN story says it all, “Paul Ryan’s new partner: Obama.” If things had gone differently in the 2012 presidential election, Paul Ryan would be vice president right now. Instead, he’s allied with the President he tried to defeat. As chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, he’s muscling a controversial trade bill through the House that could Read more […]

Republicans Want to Pass Obamatrade to Find Out What’s in Obamatrade

The Obamatrade bill is even more secret than it is supposed to be since key supporters have not bothered to read it. As far as I know, Breitbart News dubbed the Trans Pacific Partnership Bill the Obamatrade bill. It is a good name. While the Senate Democrats saved us from Repubican-Obama collusion once, the Senate is certainly going to vote again on giving the President special authority to push the “trade deal.” And in this case, major Republican proponents are pushing the bill without Read more […]
