Secret TPP Text Unveiled: It’s Worse than We Thought

The TPP lowers U.S. tariffs to zero, giving our competitors unfettered access to the U.S. market while some other countries are allowed dramatically longer periods of time to open their markets. 

The ability of other countries, like Vietnam, to maintain their tariffs for significant periods of time will provide further incentives for U.S. companies to outsource production and offshore jobs and use Vietnam as an export platform to send their products back to the U.S. A good example of this is our experience with China where more than 45% of the products produced by foreign-invested enterprises are exported to the U.S. rather than sold to Chinese consumers. 

According to an initial analysis published in the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. market access concessions alone will increase the U.S. trade deficit in manufactured goods and autos and auto parts by more than $55 billion dollars resulting in the loss of more than 330,000 jobs. 

Tariffs are not the only impediment to U.S. exports to TPP countries. The TPP countries with whom the U.S. does not have existing free trade agreements with have utilized various market access impediments as well as maintain state-owned enterprises and non-market economic policies (Vietnam) to ensure the success of their companies. The TPP will do little to ensure that access for U.S. exports will increase to offset the flood of imports that are anticipated. 

I’m sure Rush Limbaugh, the pro American mayor of Realville, will be all over this on Monday. /sarcasm

Thank you Ted Cruz for enabling this stinking Obamatrade mess with your campaign to pass TPA. How principled and conservative of you.

I don't care about a "Global Middle Class." I care about the U.S. middle class. Let the other nations build theirs like we did---through freedom and individualism and work. Instead, Globalists' idea is to transfer the wealth of the U.S.A.---wealth CREATED by the U.S.A.---to other countries and pretend that the other countries earned it. God help us. We are in the fight of our lives.

Kerry laid it out clearly today: he declared "It's a Borderless World." This ranks up there with Bush 41's NEW WORLD ORDER speech.

And the globalists are feverishly working to cram through TTIP---TPP but with Europe. Once again---secret negotiations, etc.

Trump is the visionary who has focused us on the war of the 21st century: Globalism versus Nationalism, or Globalism versus Patriotism. Can you imagine what the Repub primary season would have been without Trump? Immigration, jobs, and trade would have never come up. No wonder the globalists hate him so much.

I hope I'm right when I say that it SEEMS like the rest of the Freepers are GETTING it now, understanding the enemy of Globalism and recognizing the Globalists (Levin, Beck, Rush, "conservative" media, and ALL the other Republican presidential candidates.)

My God continue to protect Trump. He's all we have to save us from the New World Borderless Elite.

We are at the point now as in Orwell's 1984: The inner and outer "classes"---the ELITE---have and run everything, and the "proles"---the people who produce---live in near poverty while the ELITE live like kings.

Lodi, that's exactly how we got where we are: Cruz's masterful, stealthy parliamentarian tricks that got TPA passed. Without TPA there would be no TPP or TTIP. TPA removes all congressional input from the trade agreement approval process. Congress can't amend it, can't even FILIBUSTER it, thanks to the TPA. The President negotiates it in secret, then hands the signed, completed document to us and says this is the law.

We tried for months to demonstrate the truth to the Cruz, Levin, Beck and other globalists' supporters.

A more realistic buck-based appraisal:

Obama considers TPP central to his presidential legacy and to his foreign policy and economic legacies.

No 'conservative' in their right mind would ever vote for TPP----which has horrendous consequences for American workers. (However, Cruz voted for TPA---to fast track TPP for Obama.)

=================================================

TPP is best understood against the backdrop
of Obama's post-presidential get-rich-quick foundation plans.

NOW ISN'T THIS INTERESTING? few, if any, of the RCEP and
TPP countries contributed to the buck-raking Clinton Foundation.

Looks like the Clintons and Obama divvied up the globe so that each have their own countries in order to collect big buck get-rich-quick foundation donations, honorarium, cosultancies, and int'l insider business deals.

======================================

THE FACTS ARE THESE Obama's trade deal giveaway is a huge scam...best examined against the backdrop of Obama's two tax-exempt foundations (two-that we know of). Obama's priming the pump for donations to his two Foundations.

All of Obama's thinly-veiled actions....

(1) promoting TPA and TPP,

(2) his immigration suck-ups

(3) his non-action WRT ISIS, IRAN....

.....are best understood against the backdrop of Obama's future get-rich-quick plans as an ex-president----more specifically, his two get-rich-quick Foundations (two foundations that we know of).

All these entities control billions of dollars---and Obama is lying-in-wait for his share: foreign donations, lucrative insider trade deals from untapped resources, energy deals, telecom deals, arms sales, consultancies, million dollar honorarium...and so on and so forth.

===================================================

WIKI REFERENCE: Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a proposed free trade agreement (FTA) between the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) (Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) and the six states with which ASEAN has existing FTAs (Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand). RCEP negotiations were formally launched in November 2012.

“Hey I got a great idea” “Let’s make the whole world a 3rd world country”.

That is the point of all this. We can't have white privileged males in the US and nowhere else can we?

This is not about tariffs. This is about destroying the sovereignty of nation states and the creation of a one world fascist government. Wake up people. Read this article and get on the phone to the offices of your Representatives...

____________________________________________________

That statement, that no conservative would vote for TPP or TPA or NAFTA is the key to understanding the conservative/liberal paradigm and the 21st century paradigm, which is GLOBALISM versus American Patiotism.

Far less than 1/4 of the text of TPP is about trade. Most of it is about international law, regulation, global courts, etc.

It is about surrendering the sovereignty of the USA.

And the "free trade" aspects in which goods may flow from signatories into the USA freely, this will apply to PEOPLE, too, to WORKERS. To make TPP more palatable they excluded China from TPP initially though China very much wished to be included. After TPP is in place, the framework is already there to then bring in China. And Chinese labor may freely flow into the USA just like Chinese goods flow in with no tariffs. All jobs in the USA that can't be offshored to other countries will be done by Chinese and Indians. (See the massive H1B increases for India brought to us by Cruz/Rubio and the amnesty people. H1B are the visas for the GOOD, well paying STEM jobs.)

“Trump is on the right side of this - the other guy stepped in it when he helped enable the TPP.”

I spent months here, trying to inform starry-eyed Cruzers about Ted’s hand in this treason, but most rejected the facts, and continued to chant the ‘consistent conservative’ mantra.

Even more heartbreaking, is that many of those are long time friends, and other very intelligent people. Most astounding, was the fact that talkers like Levin and Limbaugh seemed utterly in the dark about Ted’s hand in passing TPA, and how that greased the skids for the TPP.
