The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is so monstrous that it will allow foreign corporations to change U.S. laws without the need to even go to court, but as the following video shows, Americans don’t even know what it is and couldn’t care less. The average IQ in Western nations has dropped by 14.1 points over the past century, while our brains are literally shrinking and the education system is dumbing down our children. It seems painfully obvious that the instant access to the entirety of the world’s knowledge the Internet has provided has not resulted in a more informed population – unless we’re talking about the Kardashians or Bruce Jenner’s transgender re-assignment surgery. Congress, led by Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, is preparing to betray American workers, and the grass roots should rise up and say, “No, you don’t.”
The secretive underhanded deal is called “fast track,” and that’s an appropriate title because, indeed, it puts Americans on a fast track to lower wages and fewer available jobs.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., one of the few Members of Congress who has actually read and studied fast track plus its companion trade bill called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), has compiled a list of objections to it that are downright frightening. They should be read by all who care about their own future and the future of our once-prosperous nation. Here are some of the ways fast track and TPP will betray us.
The text of TPP emphasizes that it is a “living agreement.” Translated out of bureaucratese code language, that means the text of TPP can be changed in major and minor ways by executive action after Congress OKs the document. The TPP could, for example, add additional countries such as Communist China, which for years has been cheating America coming and going.
The TPP currently includes 12 Pacific Rim member states (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam), but is expected to expand to include more nations, including Communist China. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) proposes to begin “deep and comprehensive” integration between the 28-member States of European Union and the United States.
Lawmakers in the United States Senate have thrown a wrench in a plan that would have given President Barack Obama “fast track” authority to advance a 12-nation trade deal between the US and Pacific Ring partners. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the majority whip of the chamber, added on the Senate floor that he was disappointed that Democratic lawmakers refrained from voting for the fast-track authorization, but said he was willing to “work with anybody, including the pres of the United States, to try to get our economy growing again.”
In February 2015 Rogers said during an interview we reported that the oil price bottom is not in and we could have only a small temporary rebound from oversold levels. Rogers believed the oil crash was dictated by the USA together with the Saudis in order to punish Russia, Venezuela and Iran. Today, 24 March 2015 the oil price is really lower and it seems the worse is not over yet. Another wonderful investment call Rogers made was to predict the USD rise back in 2011. In January 2015, he became even more bullish and said “The greenback is a terribly flawed currency” but he owns more US Dollars than any other currency. He expects more currency volatility and more people buying US dollars.
