The New American: “The defeat at the hands of his fellow Democrats is a stinging setback for Obama, who has been pushing hard for the fast-track authority to facilitate passage of two huge trade bills he hopes to get through Congress — the Trans-Pacific Partnership with 11 Asian nations and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with Europe.
The deals are opposed by many congressional Democrats and by organized labor and other traditional foes of free trade agreements who argue that the liberalized trade agenda will accelerate the trend in recent decades of U.S. manufacturers shipping jobs overseas. The John Birch Society, the parent organization of The New American, has also vigorously opposed both the trade deals and the fast-track authority.
Much like how the European Coal and Steel Community, established by the Treaty of Paris in 1951, developed into what is today the European Union (EU), the TPP and TTIP (if approved by Congress) would place the United States on a path toward becoming a member state in a Transpacific Union and a Transatlantic Union, respectively,” according to a statement issued by the JBS. Both trade deals “would surrender American independence to international authority.” The JBS statement also points out that there is abundant evidence for these assertions in The New American’s special report, “How the Free Trade Agenda Is Knocking Down America.” (For a PDF of this special report click here.)
Opinion: Let’s try to simplify the TPP:
President Obama in his 2013 State of the Union address heralded the benefits of the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade agreement:
“To boost American exports, support American jobs and level the playing field in the growing markets of Asia, we intend to complete negotiations on a Trans-Pacific Partnership. And tonight, I’m announcing that we will launch talks on a comprehensive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union – because trade that is fair and free across the Atlantic supports millions of good-paying American jobs.” (Applause.)
Really? Stay with me because from all appearances the TPP will do the opposite and to make matters worse, the president is keeping the current terms of the deal secret.
Here is what we do know:
1. The TPP would unconstitutionally transfer legislative powers from the U.S. Congress, our state legislatures, and our city and county governments to unaccountable international bureaucrats at the World Trade Organization, or WTO.
2. By leaving Congress with only an up or down vote, the TPP would also transfer judicial powers from our federal and state courts to globalist TPP judges at regional tribunals and the WTO.
3. The TPP would also confer huge advantages on foreign businesses and large multinationals, while at the same time putting companies that operate here in America — especially small and medium-sized enterprises — at a competitive disadvantage.
In short, the TPP in the hands of an imperial globalist president, would have the power to make the USA a member state of a vast partnership of nations (see below) similar to the member states of the European Union.
Enter the North American Union:
According to World Net Daily North American trade from Canada will extend down to roughly Oklahoma in the United States and trade rom Mexico extends north to Colorado.
At the same time trade from Mexico could extend up into the United States, reaching across the Pacific Ocean to the Asian Pacific Rim nations involved in the Free Trade agreement.
That the globalists are continuing their efforts to erase the borders separating the United States from Canada and Mexico is evidenced by the Executive Orders granting amnesty and refusal to secure the US border.
From a Biblical perspective, a newly created North American Union (US, Canada and Mexico) trade bloc could possibly be one of the 10 kings of Daniel 7:24.
“The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he (antichrist) will subdue three kings.”
If the North American Union is one of the deposed kings, absorption of the union into the Western Alliance (revived Rome) of Antichrist is a piece of cake.
