It’s Decision Day on Obama’s Trade Agenda: What You Need to Know

Today, the House will either advance—or imperil—President Obama’s trade agenda when it votes on legislation to give him more power to ink deals with other nations.

For Obama to win the power he craves, he will have to lean heavily on Republicans—and hope just enough Democrats side with him—showcasing the odd alliances that have defined the trade battle.

The debate is about what’s known as trade promotion authority. Fast-track trade authority, as it’s better known, would leave Congress with the power to vote up or down on trade deals but with no ability to amend such deals.

Obama says he needs such power to assure the 12 countries involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership—which would link 40 percent of the world’s economy—that Congress won’t unravel it.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, as the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, has forcefully spoken out against TPA/TPP legislation.


“I don’t accept the notion that we should send thank you notes to nations that ship us goods at illegally subsidized prices, that have the result of eliminating American competitors and shifting their unemployment to the United States… Our trade competitors strongly desire access to our market, and we can benefit from the import of foreign goods. However, we have every right, and a duty, to ensure that such access is accompanied with compliance with the rules of trade. This is not free trade. And this nation cannot be so tied to a religion of free trade that we enable such bad behavior.”..June 9, 2015.*

Sadly, Sen Cruz is still trying to finesse his way around supporting TPA by suggesting that just because he supports Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) doesn't mean he will support Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).**

Again, Sen Cruz must think the voting public are dummies. What Sen Cruz fails to mention by supporting TPA,  he has, in Sen Sessions' words: "effectively neutered Congress' power to influence trade authority." Moreover, Congress has also given up its powers to amend the deal, revise the deal, fully debate the deal, or apply a cloture vote in the Senate, all with a simply majority vote rather that the normal 60 majority. Once this trade implementing legislation is enacted, that implementing language itself will supersede U.S. law."

I would trust Putin to make deals for America rather than Obama! Putin is a Marxist, but has honesty! Obama, as we all know, is an habitual liar. No wonder Killary is the next supported by our treasonous Liberal media! They are further left than Putin!

STOP the TPP - A deal made in hell for the US

Why You Should Care

TPP raises significant concerns about citizens’ freedom of expression, due process, innovation, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and the right of sovereign nations to develop policies and laws that best meet their domestic priorities. In sum, the TPP puts at risk some of the most fundamental rights that enable access to knowledge for the world’s citizens.

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we see just how bad TPP trade deal is for regular people

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
