Warren isn’t wrong, Obama is. And he knows it. The entire TPP, as understood, is based on a single overarching idea: that regulation must not hinder profiteering. This is a fundamentally anti-democratic concept that—if implemented—would effectively eliminate the power of a demos to make its own law. The final authority on any law’s validity would rest elsewhere, beyond the reach of popular sovereignty. From the TPP point-of-view, democracy is just another barrier to trade, and the corporate forces behind the draft treaty are intent on removing that barrier. Simple as that.
That’s why the entire deal has been negotiated in conclave, deliberately beyond the public purview, since the president and his trade representatives know that exposing the deal to the unforgiving light of popular scrutiny would doom it to failure. That’s why the president, like his mentor President Clinton, has lobbied hard for Trade Promotion Authority, or Fast Track, which reduce the Congressional role in the passage of the bill to a ‘yea’ or ‘nay.’
Obama ad-Dajjal lied about all of these:
- Closing GTMO
- Chemical weapons in Syria
- Everything about the Affordable Care Act
- Everything about Libya
- Everything about Ukraine
- Everything about Yemen
Why then should anyone other than a fool believe what he is saying about TPP?
Obama ad-Dajjal is a nation wrecker, and he has his sights set on wrecking the US, too. Anyone who thinks otherwise is extremely naive.
