Media Pushes “Free-Trade Agreement” We Never Agreed To and Isn’t Free

The TPP Free-Trade Agreement was a secret deal; the media will now tell us what was done to us by others. This headline at Newser.com about the Trans Pacific Partnership cracks me up: “Inside the Historic Free-Trade Pact We Just Agreed To.” “We agreed” to this transnational bureaucratic trade treaty? How could we? We never knew what was in it. The typical pretense is that the people who “agreed” to the treaty are our representatives. So instead of telling the truth, that they have Read more […]

Marco Rubio Casts Deciding Vote for Obamatrade without Reading the Bill

Marco Rubio decided it was his duty to support Obamatrade based on what he thinks (or hopes) is in the law. You may remember that Mark Horne wrote in January, “Republicans Want to Pass Obamatrade to Find Out What’s in Obamatrade.” Basically, people in Congress were defending the bill, promoting the bill, and planning to vote for the bill without having read the text of the bill. And now we get this from The Marshall Report: “Marco Rubio Screwed America, Big Time!” Marco Rubio what Read more […]

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 […]

Nations Want To Trade With U.S. But Not Enough To Over-Regulate Themselves For “Environment”

Most people in history had a habit of dying from their environment. There are people who live that way even now. There are people who have to include in their household chores the job of walking down to a water source, and then bringing back as much as they can carry. It is extra hours of exhausting daily work. And what happens when they drink it? Quite often they get sick and weak from the stuff they need to live that took them hours of time and much sweat to acquire. The environment wants Read more […]

House Dems Preventing GOP from Giving Arbitrary Unilateral Power to White House?!

I hadn’t been paying close attention to the White House push for the Trans Pacific Partnership, mainly because it didn’t really seem possible. After all, the only way for the trade treaty to be negotiated is for Congress to willingly give up its authority to the President. And, after the way Obama treated Congress during the government “shutdown,” how he derided them for opposing Obamacare as a narrowly ideological or partisan, and how the Senate Democratic majority has “gone nuclear,” Read more […]
