Opposition is building quickly and quietly opposing Obama’s plan to ram through Congress one of the most ambitious “free-trade agreements” ever negotiated. Opposition to the legislation that could be introduced as soon as January 8 is gaining ground via the Internet.
Negotiated under a veil of secrecy by the Obama administration, the international trade agreement is regarded by globalist free traders as the cornerstone of the “New World Order.” As a result of the legislation Obama would be granted “fast track authority” to ram the Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress with virtually no debate and no room for proposed amendments.
FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Impeach Obama NOW!
But a fast-growing Internet group may block that effort. An “Anti-TPP Twitter Storm” began brewing
on New Year’s Day with the world called upon to tweet and post an ANTI-TPP hashtag. That call was made via Facebook and urged people to post about stopping the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“The goal of this ‘hashtag storm’ is to get this hashtag trending on both Twitter and Facebook, so we can inform the public about the dangers of the Trans Pacific Partnership and agitate people to ACT to stop the TPP. Join us and help expose the corporate coup known as the Trans Pacific Partnership,” reported the dedicated Facebook page.
Obama doubling up on his globalist agenda
Obama announced a two-ocean globalist free trade agenda in his State of the Union address on February 12:
“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,” he said. “And tonight, I am announcing that we will launch talks on a comprehensive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union – because trade that is free and fair across the Atlantic supports millions of good-paying American jobs.”
Recently made public was a decision by the U.S. Trade Representative within the Executive Office of the President to expand the ongoing negotiations for a free-trade zone with Pacific Rim countries—that includes a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with European Union countries.
With these latest developments Obama and his administration are undeniably setting the stage to double-up on a globalist agenda. This globalist agenda includes developing massive new free-trade agreements across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, adding a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TAP) known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP.)
Obama overreaching his power with fast-tracking
Obama’s plans, in development for two years, are ready to be implemented and Democrats are geared up, set to pass the massive free-trade agreement. Their stealth strategy is to employ a simple majority vote that would skirt the typical two-thirds Senate vote the US Constitution requires to ratify a treaty. Their strategy is part of what is known as “fast-track authority” which requires Congress to review a free-trade agreement (FTA) under limited debate, in an accelerated timeframe subject to a yes or no vote by Congress without provision for Congress to modify the agreement with amendments. This is allowed under a provision under the Trade Promotion Authority.
Foreign partners receive reassurance under the fast-track authority that the FTA agreement negotiated by the executive branch will not be altered by Congress during the legislative process.
However, a report released by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) makes clear that Obama and his administration do not have the authority do not have fast-track authority to negotiate TPP despite the office of the U.S. Trade Representative pretending it is in place:
The present negotiations are not being conducted under the auspices of formal trade promotion authority (TPA) – the latest TPA expired on July 1, 2007 – although the Administration informally is following the procedures of the former TPA. If TPP implementing legislation is brought to Congress, TPA may need to be considered if the legislation is not to be subject to potentially debilitating amendments or rejection. Finally, Congress may seek to weigh in on the addition of new members to the negotiations, before or after the negotiations conclude.
According to the CRS report, the TPP is being negotiated as a regional free-trade agreement. US negotiators hope that it “will liberalize trade in nearly all goods and services and include commitments beyond those currently established in the World Trade Organization (WTO).”
Obama and his administration are treating the TPP like a TPA, not a formal treaty obligation. This means that the Obama majority will seek TPP passage by a simple Congressional majority vote.
Agreements made within the TPP will be crafted to supersede US law with the regional authorities as specified within the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement since the impact of the TPP will be equivalent to a formal treaty obligation.
To make the TTP law the Obama administration faces one final hurdle: getting Congress to vote fast-track authority as the terms under which the TPP will be introduced to Congress.
One of the few strategies opponents have left then is to pressure Congress to vote against giving Obama and his administration fast-track authority when the issue arises potentially as early as the coming week.
Sneaky strategies advancing the New World Order agenda
Globalists advising Obama are using history to craft cunning strategies to push through the New World Order agenda. Advisors appear to have learned from the adverse public reaction to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) during the President George W. Bush era. For that reason Obama has avoided leader summit meetings that exposed the international “working group” coordination needed to create international free-trade agreements to critical alternative news media.
Globalists discovered that international adventures like the NAFTA Super-Highway will succeed if the initiatives are pursued under-cover, quietly and covertly. Anyone who gets in the way, attempting to expose the larger purpose of global sovereignty, is subject to ridicule.
Interestingly, Obama’s dirty deed doers shut down the Security and Prosperity Partnership website, spp.gov. then rebranded the SPP as the North American Leaders Summit. The last joint statement was issued April 2, 2012 at the conclusion of the last tri-lateral head-of-state meeting between the US, Mexico and Canada.
The Obama administration appears to have leap-frogged the SPP ambitions to create a North American Union by including Mexico and Canada in the TPP configuration.
In total there are 10 nations involved in the TPP: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
The following graph appears in the CRS report and shows the broad reach of the agreement across the Pacific:
A view of the North American map, shows trade from Canada extending down into Oklahoma while Mexican trade extends north to Colorado. At the same time, trade from Mexico extends up into the US across the Pacific to Asian and Pacific Rim nations that are involved in the FTA.
Leak shows Obama intends to surrender US sovereignty
A leaked copy of the TPP draft makes it abundantly clear that the Obama administration fully intends to surrender US sovereignty to hand over judgment regarding disputes that arise under the TPP to an international tribunal. (Chapter 15, “Dispute Settlement)
Should a dispute involve interpretation and application of the TPP agreement, the articles dictate that it will be adjudicated by an “arbitral tribunal” that consists of three TPP members whose purpose will be “to make an objective assessment of the dispute before it, including an examination of the facts of the case and the applicability of and conformity with this Agreement, and make such other findings and rulings necessary for the resolution of the dispute referred to it as it thinks fits.”
These arbitral tribunals are not required to render decisions in compliance with the US law—nor are the decisions of such a tribunal invalid should they violate or otherwise contravene US law. The TPP draft agreement does not specify any of these points.
Investment disputes arising under the TPP agreement would be set for resolution by the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes. This Center was created by 158 nations that are signatories to the ICSID Convention that were created under the backing of the World Bank.
Still another portion of the TPP draft agreement specifies that foreign firms from Trans-Pacific signatory countries that are seeking to do business in the United States can apply for relief under the trade pact to the arbitral tribunals to be relieved from complying with onerous US laws and regulations, including environmental regulations and financial disclosures.
Aanother troublesome consequence of the TPP agreement would place arbitral tribunals above the US law. This means that the Obama administration is already set on creating a judicial authority that is higher than the US Supreme Court. If this agreement were to be passed it would mean the tribunal could overrule the decisions handed down from our federal courts to apply US laws and regulations to foreign corporations doing business within the US.
New World Order is on the agenda. Should Obama succeed, it would continue to weaken America’s stronghold around the world, open America up to NWO control and further relinquish US power to foreign sources.
