Breitbart: “ U.S. President Barack Obama is fully committed to pushing for Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal despite anti-trade sentiment gaining steam on the presidential election campaign trail, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday.
Voter anxiety and anger over international trade and the 12-nation Pacific trade pact have helped propel the campaign of Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner Donald Trump as well as Senator Bernie Sanders who is running against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.
“The president remains fully committed to working to achieve ratification on the U.S. side and encouraging all of our TPP partners to move through their domestic processes to do the same,” Rice told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday.”
Opinion: Is it fair to criticize the TPP as a corrupt power grab just because President Obama is for it?
The simple answer is yes. But a closer look shows that the most Republicans in Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are in favor of the deal while Donald Trump and Ted Cruz oppose.
Bernie Sanders is also against it and Hillary has concerns.
Confused yet? If so, here are a few things to know:
TPP is all about free trade on the surface. Peal back the onion and it becomes an all-out assault on national sovereignty.
Collectively, the trade agreements will unconstitutionally transfer legislative powers from the U.S. Congress, our state legislatures, and our city and county governments to multi-national corporations and unaccountable international bureaucrats at the progressives at the World Trade Organization ( WTO).
The TPP Commission will have the power to write rules regarding:
- Businesses within U.S. borders as well as across the rest of the commission’s membership
The enormity of that power brings to mind a second plank of the globalist dream of centralized power. Let’s review the planks so far:
- Climate Sustainability
- ObamaTrade (TPP)
- Universal Healthcare
- Gun Confiscation
- Cashless Society
