The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Permanently Locking In The Obama Agenda For 40 Percent Of The Global Economy

Obama LaughingWe have just witnessed one of the most significant steps toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen.  Negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership have been completed, and if approved it will create the largest trading bloc on the planet.  But this is not just a trade agreement.  In this treaty, Barack Obama has thrown in all sorts of things that he never would have been able to get through Congress otherwise.  And once this treaty is approved, it will be exceedingly difficult to ever make changes to it.  So essentially what is happening is that the Obama agenda is being permanently locked in for 40 percent of the global economy.


The United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam all intend to sign on to this insidious plan.  Collectively, these nations have a total population of about 800 million people and a combined GDP of approximately 28 trillion dollars.

Of course Barack Obama is assuring all of us that this treaty is going to be wonderful for everyone

In hailing the agreement, Obama said, “Congress and the American people will have months to read every word” before he signs the deal that he described as a win for all sides.

“If we can get this agreement to my desk, then we can help our businesses sell more Made in America goods and services around the world, and we can help more American workers compete and win,” Obama said.

Sadly, just like with every other “free trade” agreement that the U.S. has entered into since World War II, the exact opposite is what will actually happen.  Our trade deficit will get even larger, and we will see even more jobs and even more businesses go overseas.

But the mainstream media will never tell you this.  Instead, they are just falling all over themselves as they heap praise on this new trade pact.  Just check out a couple of the headlines that we saw on Monday…

-Time Magazine: “Pacific Trade Deal Is Good for the U.S. and Obama’s Legacy

-The Washington Post: “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a trade deal worth celebrating

Overseas it is a different story.  Many journalists over there fully recognize that this treaty greatly benefits many of the big corporations that played a key role in drafting it.  For example, the following comes from a newspaper in Thailand

You will hear much about the importance of the TPP for “free trade”.

The reality is that this is an agreement to manage its members’ trade and investment relations — and to do so on behalf of each country’s most powerful business lobbies.

These sentiments were echoed in a piece that Zero Hedge posted on Monday

Packaged as a gift to the American people that will renew industry and make us more competitive, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a Trojan horse. It’s a coup by multinational corporations who want global subservience to their agenda. Buyer beware. Citizens beware.

The gigantic corporations that dominate our economy don’t care about the little guy.  If they can save a few cents on the manufacturing of an item by moving production to Timbuktu they will do it.

Over the past couple of decades, the United States has lost tens of thousands of manufacturing facilities and millions of good paying jobs due to these “free trade agreements”.  As we merge our economy with the economies of nations where it is legal to pay slave labor wages, it is inevitable that corporations will shift jobs to places where labor is much cheaper.  Our economic infrastructure is being absolutely eviscerated in the process, and very few of our politicians seem to care.

Once upon a time, the city of Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city on the planet and it had the highest per capita income in the entire nation.  But today it is a rotting, decaying hellhole that the rest of the world laughs at.  What has happened to the city of Detroit is happening to the entire nation as a whole, but our politicians just keep pushing us even farther down the road to oblivion.

Just consider what has happened since NAFTA was implemented.  In the year before NAFTA was approved, the United States actually had a trade surplus with Mexico and our trade deficit with Canada was only 29.6 billion dollars.  But now things are very different.  In one recent year, the U.S. had a combined trade deficit with Mexico and Canada of 177 billion dollars.

And these trade deficits are not just numbers.  They represent real jobs that are being lost.  It has been estimated that the U.S. economy loses approximately 9,000 jobs for every 1 billion dollars of goods that are imported from overseas, and one professor has estimated that cutting our trade deficit in half would create 5 million more jobs in the United States.

Just yesterday, I wrote about how there are 102.6 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.  Once upon a time, if you were honest, dependable and hard working it was easy to get a good paying job in this country.  But now things are completely different.

Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs.  Today, only about 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

Why aren’t more people alarmed by numbers like this?

And of course the Trans-Pacific Partnership is not just about “free trade”.  In one of my previous articles, I explained that Obama is using this as an opportunity to permanently impose much of his agenda on a large portion of the globe…

It is basically a gigantic end run around Congress.  Thanks to leaks, we have learned that so many of the things that Obama has deeply wanted for years are in this treaty.  If adopted, this treaty will fundamentally change our laws regarding Internet freedom, healthcare, copyright and patent protection, food safety, environmental standards, civil liberties and so much more.  This treaty includes many of the rules that alarmed Internet activists so much when SOPA was being debated, it would essentially ban all “Buy American” laws, it would give Wall Street banks much more freedom to trade risky derivatives and it would force even more domestic manufacturing offshore.

The Republicans in Congress foolishly gave Obama fast track negotiating authority, and so Congress will not be able to change this treaty in any way.  They will only have the opportunity for an up or down vote.

I would love to see Congress reject this deal, but we all know that is extremely unlikely to happen.  When big votes like this come up, immense pressure is put on key politicians.  Yes, there are a few members of Congress that still have backbones, but most of them are absolutely spineless.  When push comes to shove, the globalist agenda always seems to advance.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media will be telling the American people about all of the wonderful things that this new treaty will do for them.  You would think that after how badly past “free trade” treaties have turned out that we would learn something, but somehow that never seems to happen.

The agenda of the globalists is moving forward, and very few Americans seem to care.

So what will it take for people to finally wake up?  Please feel free to share your thoughts by posting a comment below…

    What is 40% of Zero?
    IF you are right about the rest of the economy that is what we are bargaining with.
    I suggest we find a way to impeach Obama now before such an agreement comes up.
    I can think of quite a few reasons why he is guilty of a number of things that are basically illegal. Laws all ready on the books.
    So when does his actions constitute an impeachable offense?
    Could it be illegal aliens?
    A questionable social security number?
    A questionable name not changed legally?
    A question of citizenship as he applied for a scholarship not as a citizen of the USA but somewhere else?
    You are a lawyer with legal training. You tell me. Is he impeachable?
    I want the voting record of every congress person in every district in the United States.
    How do their voting records match up with their speeches?
    For instance, national security law, how many voted against it passing the last time? Because at least 300 of them passed it.
    It is time to hold these people accountable for what they vote for and what they do.
    Personally, I think it is too late. But lots of luck with that . . .

      “Personally, I think it is too late.”

      You and me both brother, I WEEP the future

      “I think it is too late.”

      So do I.

  • barry oldwater

    It all hinges upon how much debt everone is willing to go into to make this work.

  • K

    This will be the same as the Iranian agreement. Fast tracked, to almost make it impossible to stop. Many of the same people who voted for fast track. Will now vote against the agreement, and say they tried to stop it. They assume the grand majority, will not remember they voted for fast track. Sadly they are right.

    Two quotes from Einstein:

    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the universe.

    The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits.

    A quote from Joseph Goebbels:

    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

    • Donald Wilson

      You are correct…

    America seems Brain dead.

    • Jim Davis

      Not seems. IS.

  • William Lutz

    Modern capitalism at its finest. This is why we need trade unions to protect workers.

    • MightyIDF

      This is why we need to outlaw trade unions to keep corruption away from workers.

        riiiiiiiiight, just leave the all powerful corporations alone. how well is that working out, eh

  • AzDi

    Another reason Republicans have betrayed Americans . We already have the liberals destroying America, we continue to see the other half doing the same. America is done. The world is done!

    Sometimes I think Michael believes that our votes actually count. I do not think they do. Many voted in a Republican congress but look at the results of that. If Mr. Obama understands anything, he understands power and uses it. Other presidents thought they had power but did not exercise it. Obama does. Republicans are a pathetic lot. The nation is pathetic. It is a nation that is failing in so many serious ways. Our education system is an indoctrination system. Political correctness constipates interaction. There is a “war” against males e.g. drugging young male children because they are too “active”. Everyone seems offended by something. Everyone gets a trophy and true merit goes out the window except in pro sports. The “just us” system is rigged. You are guilty until you prove your innocence or plea bargain on a charge for something you did not do. We have one scam after another throughout our society and its economy. Do you really believe that TV commercial is honest? Ranting is just that. Ranting. Vote does not count and frankly never has. The nation is a train wreck and only those who are connected thrive. This treaty will only serve to enrich the top people again. The rest of you will once again be screwed. I have been seeing this same routine for many decades now. I feel sorry for the generations coming behind.

      So sadly, yes, indeed. I think the federal elections at least, are rigged. And even if they’re not, this Republican majority House has proven to be the other end of the Donkey once again. They did a “show vote” on stopping funding to Planned Parenthood, then turned around and voted to continue funding it.

      • Gay Veteran

        nope, not rigged. why?
        democrats = republicans

  • There will be no wake-up. No one I know is aware of what is happening or concerned enough to do anything about it. My Senators (Cruz and Cornyn) and Representative (Flores) all think TPP is the greatest thing since sliced bread. WE ARE SCREWED.

  • iris

    Do you really think the technology at the disposal of the “powers that be”, will allow that? The clause put in by our founding fathers instructing us to rise up in arms against despots, should tyrants reign, has ceased being taught for many decades, and the law of the land has lost its power. There is no place to run or hide outside of God’s providence, and they are just itching to put us under martial law, at best. At best.

    The strong dollar is the real problem. Get it down to par with the Canadian dollar, and the trade deficit will turn into a surplus in no time.

    “…The Republicans in Congress foolishly gave Obama fast track negotiating authority, and so Congress will not be able to change this treaty in any way. They will only have the opportunity for an up or down vote….”
    foolishly? ROFLOL, democrat = republican
