Tea Party Nation ^ | December 6, 2013 | Janet Klien

Obama secretly signing away U.S. sovereignty

Click this link to learn more: http://www.wnd.com/2013/10/obama-secretly-signing-away-u-s-sovereig...

Anyway the Republicans are getting ready to help Obama destroy America with this dangerous treaty. This webpage's existence, Made In America on Food Products, Patents on life threatening surgeries and Generic Drugs will all be gone if this Treaty gets Fast Tracked. According to the Financial Times just released today, THE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE HAVE STRUCK A DEAL WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA TO ALLOW ONLY 51 VOTES IN THE SENATE TO RATIFY THIS AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY DESTROYING TREATY.

Please read from the Financial Times: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/ce008052-5dfd-11e3-8fca-00144feabdc0.html...

I urge Justin Phillips and the Tea Party Nation and hopefully THE BLAZE Magazine will finally start talking about the Trans Pacific Partnership and call the Ways and Means Committee and tell them NO TO FAST TRACKING the Trans Pacific Partnership.

Link to the Ways and Means Committee members: http://waysandmeans.house.gov/about/members.htm#5

This Treaty is dangerous is so many ways. Even Conservative Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham is asking WHY THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA SO MUCH POWER TO DESTROY THE INDEPENDENCE OF THIS GREAT NATION BY FAST TRACKING THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP.

Please as well call Congress 2022243121 and tell them NO TO FAST TRACK AND NO TO THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP. Don't let President Obama give up American Sovereignty. FIGHT AND STOP THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP.

And Congress fiddles while America burns -— Obama is still in the White House, and they do not care.

Not secretly, for those that just open their eyes.

Bad enough that PRC boots on the ground in Hawaii is more than merely symbolic of that. Inviting enemy troops into your country means you’ve got an entrenched presence on your own soil.

From WND:

Another hidden surprise from the people who brought you ObamaCare.

Have read that Monsanto is drooling over this one.

There has been no open oversight. What could possibly go wrong?

“Even Conservative Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham is asking WHY THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA SO MUCH POWER TO DESTROY THE INDEPENDENCE OF THIS GREAT NATION BY FAST TRACKING THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP.”

Because the GOP is loaded with corporatists who couldn’t give a damn about the American taxpayer when it comes down to it.

People can say anything they want about that — but the fact remains that you can’t get away from the number specified by the US Constitution.

The President...shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur...

Constitution of the United States, Art. II, Sec. 2

That could be EASILY challenged in court and affirmed in that challenge by the US Supreme Court. Something like “numbers” are easily upheld.

Treaty embroilment is so dangerous and so important, that to further limit and restrict their making, Article II, Section 2, Paragraph 2 orders that the President: "...shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; [Emphasis added.]"

Anyone still not believing that America has entered a lawless post-Constitutional era?

Here is a clear explanation of how this process began and what need to be done to stop the use of Fast Track Trade Legislation.

The nice thing about numbers and mathematics - is that they are hard facts and not subject to interpretation. Anyone who can’t count and doesn’t know how percentages work - doesn’t make it as far as the Supreme Court.

A person may disagree with the politics and interpretation of laws from various judges - but they ALL know how to add 1+1 and get 2 ... :-) ...

Yeah and a tax is a tax, right?

The number applies to the number of Senators present, not the number of Senators.

Words are very much subject to interpretation. “Words” are very much more subjective, in a manner that numbers are not.

Oh ... and in regards to the number “present” I did quote that in my original comment.

Also keep in mind that it pays the “opposition” to have ALL their members “present” in order to make it harder to achieve that 2/3 count. In other words, this proportion required is stacked in favor of the opposition.

Yes, but keep in mind that they're lawyers:

A university committee was selecting a new dean. They had narrowed the candidates down to a mathematician, an economist and a lawyer.

Each was asked this question during their interview: "How much is two plus two?"

The mathematician answered immediately, "Four."

The economist thought for several minutes and finally answered, "Four, plus or minus one."

Finally the lawyer stood up, peered around the room and motioned silently for the committee members to gather close to him. In a hushed, conspiratorial tone, he replied, "How much do you want it to be?"

Cute story but lawyers know how to use numbers, too - which is why their incomes are so high ... :-) ...

The rule of law has broken down and I have zero faith in them.

He will say that this is not a treaty but a tax.
