WE NEED TO EDUCATE OURSELVES, SHARE OUR THOUGHTS with each member regarding TPP and the eventual T-TIP. We need to fight this war on the USA that the TPP is waging.
WILL YOU HELP?
The key thoughts around attempts to reach understanding are:
How will it affect USA sovereignty
Further erode the 10th Amendment
Fuel the new world order
Erode two and half + centuries of the rule of laws
How TPP will invade USA laws of the future
Adoption of WTO rules and increase those rules
TPP is NAFTA on steroids (it represent the lessons learned from NAFTA)
I am no economist. I do not have any claims to understanding the global economy in great depth. This lack of deep understanding does not disqualify my contention that our USA citizens have been harmed economically by the tools and institutions that have created the system.
It is a hard to swallow a notion that one finds themselves agreeing with the Socialist Bernie Sanders with regards to TPP and TTIP. Infact I agree with the left who are waging a mighty battle against signing on to the trade agreement. My agreement with them on one level is about the destruction it will bring to the meaning of the middle class. The agreement will harm the working class. What I find disturbing from the left/progressives is that they do not discuss the fact that American sovereignty will be irreparably destroyed.
We read from many members here on 912 that they support free/fair trade. I have always believed that in spirit trade between nations should be free/fair. The truth is, in my opinion, is simply that free/fair is not and never will live up to the those ideals.
We have discussed over the years the New World Order. In the early years despite decades of proof we were on the march towards the new order, we were derided by labeling us as kooks claiming the concept of a new order was a conspiracy theory. We were right all along.
For decades upon decades the US government has been on the forefront of the new order project plan. Institutions have been created powered in no small way by USA funds: WTO, IMF, NATO, World Bank etc.
Now ‘they’ seem to feel free to ratchet up by creating new trade deals that will be the ‘gold standard’ to support more control in the international. Make no mistake this means that rules/law/regulations supplant existing laws of the USA and requires that future laws passed by Congress and indeed of any States in the USA conform to the rules/regulations/laws in the international.
In recent years I have listened to members of SCOTUS make statements at this and that event that the court must begin to consider the laws in the international. Not my friends law of the USA or any state but consideration of the domestic law vs international law.
The new order has declared four big trading block’s: North America (NAU), Europe(EU), Asia and Latin America. As Obama recently said and I paraphrase it is much easier to talk with representatives of these four blocks than to negotiate with many nations one on one. This division into blocks is at the very core that drives in their thinking the need for ‘gold standard’ trade control placed in the international.
The entire mess we find ourselves victims of, and yes we are victims, victims to be discarded for the wealth and power of a few. K-street firms that represent foreign interests abound. They have no loyalty to the USA and folks many in Congress being corrupted by money from the foreign interests are systematically selling the USA. Ms Clinton’s stint at the State department should inform us all that ‘pay to play’ for personal wealth is alive, All levels of our government, all branches have been corrupted.
Let me provide one example. We are hearing that the US Military procurement process must be reformed. No doubt for many decades upon decades that the procurement process has been in need of overhaul, better oversight. No longer however is it matter of ensuring equal access to providing goods and services domestically it has moved into the realm of international. Made in the USA to supply our military is now a joke. At best some goods are ‘assembled’ in the USA. Congress long ago gave the military the right to purchase goods while in theater to X number of dollars from local vendors or from other countries directly. The X amount of dollars somewhere around a hundred thousand dollars can be issued. Chain procurement of issued transfer of dollars over and over. Boots for the troops serving in Afghanistan purchased unabashedly from China.
We say we create uniforms for the military, made in the USA. Well sorta true, stitched together perhaps but Austria provides the rayon.
Everything we purchase unless we know the source, mostly now locally grown produce, you have difficulty deciphering where the product comes from. We want to purchase a vehicle that is made in the USA. The vehicle may/or may not be assembled in the USA. The parts that make up a completed vehicle the manufacturing of those thousands of parts come from the global supply chain. Chances are that few of the parts were manufactured/ tooled by USA workers.
Getting back to procurement and tieing it to the TPP the overhaul of procurement I contend is most likely brought on by the need to conform procurement rules/regulations to the international ‘gold standard’ of the TPP trade agreement. Here are two links that I urge you to read.
There exist many sources that represent the views of pros and cons regarding the TPP. I fall into the camp of against the TPP. USA sovereignty being the most crucial reason. This fact represents my opposition to the new world order.
As the republicans in Congress many of which supported fast track. I watched O. Hatch ushering fast track through his committee. It was a display of utter embarrassment of salivating republicans slobbering all over their chins to sale out American workers and worse the sovereignty of the USA.
Obama said recently that we can not stop the global economy and we must then support the ‘gold standard’ that the TPP represents. I do not buy that line. We can at the very least begin to tame the global economy. Tame it in favor of country and her citizens.
