I’ve Read Obama’s Secret Trade Dealed

You need to tell me what’s wrong with this trade agreement, not one that was passed 25 years ago,” a frustrated President Barack Obama recently complained about criticisms of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). He’s right. The public criticisms of the TPP have been vague. That’s by design—anyone who has read the text of the agreement could be jailed for disclosing its contents. I’ve actually read the TPP text provided to the government’s own advisors, and I’ve given the president an earful about how this trade deal will damage this nation. But I can’t share my criticisms with you.

I can tell you that Elizabeth Warren is right about her criticism of the trade deal. We should be very concerned about what's hidden in this trade deal—and particularly how the Obama administration is keeping information secret even from those of us who are supposed to provide advice.

So-called “cleared advisors” like me are prohibited from sharing publicly the criticisms we’ve lodged about specific proposals and approaches. The government has created a perfect Catch 22: The law prohibits us from talking about the specifics of what we’ve seen, allowing the president to criticize us for not being specific. Instead of simply admitting that he disagrees with me—and with many other cleared advisors—about the merits of the TPP, the president instead pretends that our specific, pointed criticisms don’t exist.

What I can tell you is that the administration is being unfair to those who are raising proper questions about the harms the TPP would do. To the administration, everyone who questions their approach is branded as a protectionist—or worse—dishonest. They broadly criticize organized labor, despite the fact that unions have been the primary force in America pushing for strong rules to promote opportunity and jobs. And they dismiss individuals like me who believe that, first and foremost, a trade agreement should promote the interests of domestic producers and their employees.

If it means anything, it was passed by Congress during Bush I's Presidency; he decided not to sign it - it sat/waited for incoming President Clinton - who was excited to sign the document.   Talking about that NAFTA thing.

Disagree with organized labor being important any longer; unions are corrupt.  Which is probably what Senator Warren objects to - she is beholden to.  But, that doesn't mean the TransPac is good for American workers.  As we have witnessed with Obama, he doesn't view the United States as his boss/governing law.  He stated to Congress publicly in one of his prior arguments with them, "I don't work for you, I work for the United Nations."  Since, he has not made that gaff again - someone told him to reel it in.

I truly believed that was the true Obama - that was one statement he made, that he was not lying.

LEAVE ILLEGALS ALONE OBAMA THE SLAVE MASTER SAY. 
ESPECIALLY THE SPANISH MOROCCAN JIHADISTS WEARING LOS METS BASEBALL CAPS. OBAMA THE TITULAR HEAD OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY IS SMUGGLING LATINO SLAVES INTO THE USA. 10% OF THE UNLISTED, UN DOCUMENTED SLAVES ARE SIPHONED OFF FOR THE ILLEGAL SEX TRADE. NO WITNESSES, NO PROTECTION, NO PROOF THEY EVER EXISTED.  JUST DRUGGED FOR WORK.  STOP THE OBAMA SEX SLAVE TRADE. 
SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY WE ARE ONE FOR ALL AND ALL FOR ONE.

Since when is it wrong to "Protect"? I wish we had a government full of protectionists. If I was in that position I would yell the TPP proposal from the housetop. My advantage would be that the citizens, or better "WE THE PEOPLE" have a right to know how our government is killing us!

Any secret trade deals are not good.  That's the problem with this administration, secrets and we have to pass it to see what's in it.  If we can't see it then don't pass it.

let me read it and I will share the information with as many people as I can.  I don't care if fuehrer oblahblah likes it or not!!!!!  that Kenyan, diaperhead scum and his male wookie (disguised as a female) need to be hanged with a rope soaked in pig excrement!!!!!!!  both are disgusting tyrants!!!!!

I have read it will fast track amnesty.  It has a gun control part in it.  It gives Obama more power which is a sure fire NO WAY.  It is all bad.  Imagine Mr. Transparency  you can't see it  you can't read it. You can't take notes on it  You can't take your phone in the room.  The entire thing is 100% against the USA.

Fight like an egyption!They stood up took their country back thats exactly what we must do.its the only way left the govt every last one of them is crooked as all get out and no matter who we vote into office they will continue the demise of AMERICA for their own personel gain!

Then don't vote on it!!!!

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
