What’s Actually in the Trans Pacific Partnership?



American Thinker

On November 5, the White House released the text of the 5,544 page Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) that President Obama had just finished negotiating under the FastTrack authority that Congress gave him. That trade pact can no longer be amended. The up-or-down votes in the House and Senate will take place as early as January 2016.

So what’s in the TPP? Here’s a quick summary:

  1. A legislative body superior to Congress
  2. A vehicle to pass Obama’s climate change treaty
  3. Increased legal immigration
  4. Reduced patent protection for U.S. pharmaceuticals
  5. Quotas on U.S. agricultural exports
  6. Increased currency manipulation
  7. Reduced U.S. power

That’s the summary. Here are the details.

Obama’s So-Called Legacy Building Is Merely Cover for What He’s Really Doing


Independent Sentinel

There is no legacy and Barack Obama is not a legacy president. It’s a front to cover for what he is really doing – fundamentally transforming us into a socialist nation.

If Barack Obama wasn’t half-black, he would have been impeached by now. He has violated US law on numerous occasions and has bullied and unethically bribed politicians to pass freedom-robbing laws like the Obamacare bill.

Barack Obama wants to destroy traditional America which he sees as evil, paternalistic, imperialistic, bullying and unfair. His goal is to rebuild the country as a socialist state, a utopia where all receive the same outcomes regardless of merit and effort.

Under his air of normalcy and behind his expensive suits, lies a hippie-style leftist revolutionary with a sympathy for Islam. There is no difference between normal Islamists and radicals in his mind. The radicals became radical because of America. All minorities who commit crimes are victims of traditional Americans and the racist systems built by them.

$1B a year for no-show jobs: How the feds forgot about merit


Family Security Matters

What’s the best place to get a no-show job? The federal government.

Uncle Sam pays corrupt or incompetent employees not to come to work – because it’s easier than firing them.

Never mind the cost to taxpayers.

Congress is trying to get to the bottom of this outrageous waste. But so far, true to form, the Obama administration is stonewalling.

In fact, President Obama and Democrats in Congress are pushing for even more perks and pay hikes for federal workers. But get ready for a battle, because the new speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, is vowing to slow the gravy train.

Whatever Happened To Accountability?

Family Security Matters

President Obama has recently released 6,000 federal “non-violent drug offenders” back into our communities without them completing their entire sentences.

California Governor Jerry Brown releases hundreds of convicted murders and thousands of other “non-violent offenders” from state prisons because of alleged overcrowding. Some prisoners only did a fraction of their sentences before being released.

Hollywood starlets spend 45 minutes in the Los Angeles County Jail for drunk driving convictions because of overcrowding.

Obama’s Voluminous Trade Deal Is Online – You’d Better Read This!


Independent Sentinel

I haven’t read the Trade deal and had to rely on reports from across the Internet and in the daily papers but it is available to read online. It has glaring problems.

The text of the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement between the U.S. and 11 other countries including Japan and Mexico was posted online by the president and the Office of the United States Trade Representative. New Zealand has also posted it. It runs to 30 chapters and thousands of pages. It lays out detailed plans for trade in every thing imaginable.

The AP reported that “it lays out plans for handling of trade in everything from zinc dust to railway sleepers and live eels.”

Sounds great (sarcasm here).

It is a book of regulations.

However, Obama says it eliminates 18,000 taxes imposed on US imports.

Apart from the U.S., Japan and Mexico, countries in the trade pact are New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Peru, Canada, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.

Fight for the Future, out of New Zealand, found several areas They believe are of grave concern for the future of the Internet:

Dear Mr. Government: You will be held Accountable for Your Treachery


Freedom Outpost


Dear Mr. Government

Americans understand that you think you’re clever as you systematically usurp our constitutional form of government. The truth is, most Americans despise you and resent the way you feverishly work to keep us divided as you line your pockets, and attempt to blind us from your crimes against humanity. You try to dumb us down with psychological propaganda because you believe the vast majority of us are too stupid to understand what’s at stake as you go about the work of selling out our country to the highest bidder. It makes perfect sense that you would think we’re stupid; after all, you have been in control of public education for several decades. Rest assured, we are not as stupid as you think we are. For instance, we know that the average Republican was paid a sum of over $17,000 to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty while the average Democrat received over $9,000. Did you take bribes to pass the Iran nuclear deal as well? Will you completely sell out the U.S. Constitution for a few thousand dollars? Most of us wonder how you live with yourselves despite the fact that you think you’re fooling us.

The debt you have incurred against our children’s future is reckless, and certainly guarantees a future of serfdom, yet, the work you do, paid by the fruits of our labor mind you, ensures that you will not suffer the consequences of your own treachery. You mock us and make us despise one another as you suck this system dry like a fat tick refusing to let go of a dogs hide. You create wealth envy, dropping human kind to the lowest common denominator while you redistribute our hard earned wealth to fund your own political aspirations. In the meantime, your careless policies create real suffering as our standard of living drops. Families weekly pay checks are stretched to the max as you tell us inflation is at three percent but our weekly grocery bill is rapidly increasing. Yet somehow, you have the audacity to tell us increasing the debt ceiling will fix it. Have you no shame?
