The Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership
You have heard of the North American Free Trade Agreement, you know - the one that grew the trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars in 1993 to a deficit of of 61.6 billion dollars by 2010…well…this’ my friend, is NAFTA on steroids.  With this new economic abortion, China and Mexico will soon own the U.S. economy

I am going to introduce you to yet another plan that Obama has had since before he ran for president in 08.  Another one of his secret plans to destroy America
Did you know that Barack Obama has been secretly negotiating the most important trade agreement since the formation of the World Trade Organization?  Did you know that this agreement will impose strict Internet copyright rules, ban all "Buy American" laws, give Wall Street banks much more freedom to trade risky derivatives that killed our economy in the first place and force even more domestic manufacturing offshore?  Why would he do that?  Why would anybody do that unless he was the ‘Enemy of America’?

If you haven’t heard about this treaty called The Trans-Pacific Partnership, don't feel bad.  The only reason I know about it is because of Whitehouse Leaks, one of the few things Obama can’t seem to control.  Obama has refused to even give Congress a copy of the draft agreement and he has banned members of Congress from attending the negotiations. 

The plan is to keep this treaty secret, like he did Obama care, until the very last minute, and then railroad it through Congress and have it signed into law by October before anyone reads it…including congress.  The treaty is known as "the Trans-Pacific Partnership", and the nations that are reported to be involved in the development of this treaty include the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.  Opponents of this treaty refer to it as "the NAFTA of the Pacific", and if it is enacted it will push the deindustrialization of America into overdrive and make the American Dream a blip in the history books.

In case you haven’t noticed the "one world" economic agenda that Barack Obama has been pushing is absolutely killing the U.S. economy.  We are losing jobs and businesses at an astounding pace.  And each new "free trade" agreement makes things even worse.  And if you think that Obama is just making a lot of mistakes trying to fix’ the economy you would be wrong my friend, it is all part of his plan to destroy the American Capitalistic Economy and replace it with Marxist Socialism.  You remember…that’s the one that failed and destroyed the USSR

For example, just check out the impact that the recent free trade agreement that Obama negotiated with South Korea is having on us...

A 10 percent decline of U.S. exports to Korea
The U.S. trade deficit with Korea has climbed 37 percent
U.S. auto industry has been crippled
Loss of U.S. control where international trade, banking, and finance is concerned
A projected 159,000 jobs lost

And of course we have all seen the economic devastation that NAFTA has wrought.
When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States actually had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars.  By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.

And "free trade" with China has turned out to be a complete and total nightmare as well.  Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately million dollars  (that’s million with a little "m") for the entire year.  In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 Billion dollars that’s with a big ‘B’.  That is the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.  In effect China owns the US economy…

The New York Times is calling the Trans-Pacific Partnership "the most significant international commercial agreement since the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1995".  It is reportedly going to include a whole host of provisions which would never be able to get through Congress on their own.  Even though this treaty will affect all of our daily lives, the Obama is keeping this treaty a total secret.  In fact, His Majesty Obama won't even show it to Congress even though members of Congress have asked repeatedly to see it...

The agreement, under negotiation since 2009, would set new rules for everything including price fixing…from food safety and financial markets to medicine prices and Internet freedom will be gone.  It would include at least 12 of the countries bordering the Pacific and be open for more to join.  This is Obama’s answer to the European Union.  Dictator Obama has said he wants to sign it by October.

How can he do this?  Well he can’t, legally that is!  But if congress lets him get away with it, like they have with every despotic move so far, he will do it.

Although Congress has exclusive constitutional authority to set the terms of trade, so far the Gestapo has managed to resist repeated requests by members of Congress to see the text of the draft agreement and he has denied requests from members to attend negotiations as observers — totally reversing past practice.  While the agreement could rewrite broad sections of non-trade policies affecting Americans’ daily lives, Obama has also rejected demands by outside groups that the nearly complete text be publicly released.

So exactly who in the world does this guy think he is?  Why won't Obama let us know exactly what is in this treaty?  Fortunately, there have been a few leaks.  One thing that we have discovered is that this new treaty would reportedly ban all "Buy American laws".  That certainly would not be popular if it got out.

And do you remember SOPA?  The American people wanted nothing to do with the very strict Internet copyright provisions of SOPA and loudly expressed their displeasure to members of Congress.  Unfortunately, now the provisions of SOPA are back.  It is being reported that most of the provisions of SOPA have been quietly inserted into this secret treaty.  If this treaty is enacted, those provisions will become law and the American people will not be able to do anything about it.  And according to the New York Times, there are all sorts of other disturbing things that have been slipped into this treaty...

And yet another leak revealed that the deal would include even more expansive incentives to relocate domestic manufacturing offshore than were included in Nafta — a deal that drained millions of manufacturing jobs from the American economy.
The agreement would also be a boon for Wall Street and its campaign to water down regulations put in place after the 2008 financial crisis.  Among other things, it would practically forbid bans on risky financial products, including the toxic derivatives that helped cause the crisis in the first place.

Are you starting to understand why Obama is keeping this treaty such a secret?  And are you starting to understand that Obama isn’t just stupid as he appears?  He is doing this purposely to “Fundamentally Change America as he promised in his first campaign for president.  Oh, you missed that did you?

If the details of this treaty were revealed to the American people right now, it would create such uproar that Congress would never approve this treaty.

So please share this article with as many people as you can.  We have got to get the American people educated about this, before it is too late, as Obamacare likely is.

Enough damage has already been done to the U.S. economy by "free trade" agreements.  Just consider the following statistics...

-The United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.
-Back in the year 2000, there were more than 17 million Americans working in manufacturing.  Now there are less than 12 million.
-There are less Americans working in manufacturing today than there was in 1950 even though the population of the country has more than doubled since then.
-According to the Economic Policy Institute, America is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.
-According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades if current trends continue.
-Today, corporate profits as a percentage of U.S. GDP are at an all-time high, but wages as a percentage of U.S. GDP are near an all-time low.
-Without enough good jobs, more Americans are becoming dependent on the government If you can believe it, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from about 17 million in the year 2000 to more than 47 million today.
-Overall, the United States has run a trade deficit of more than 8 trillion dollars with the rest of the world since 1975.

And things continue to get even worse.  The Institute for Supply Management manufacturing index declined to 49.0 in May.  Any reading below 50 indicates contraction.  That was the lowest reading that we have seen since June 2009.  Just like most of the rest of the world, we are rapidly heading toward another major economic downturn.

And if you want a perfect visual example of what deindustrialization is doing to America, just look at the city of Detroit.  It was once one of the greatest manufacturing cities in the history of the world, but now it is a rotting, decaying, festering hellhole.

According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit, and at this point the city is so broke that there is talk that the female giraffe at the Detroit Zoo could be sold off to help pay the bills.
There is no way in the world that American workers should have to compete for jobs with child workers making slave labor wages in communist China.

What we desperately need are some red-blooded economic patriots to arise and to tell both political parties that we do not want this "one world" economic agenda.

So what do you think?
Will the American people wake up, or will our economy continue to lose thousands of businesses and millions of jobs until Obama wins and we meet our demise and fall into the hell hole of despotic socialism?  He will as he said he would, Fundamentally Change America.
