Democrats who plan to vote for Obama in November should be aware that the president is poised to sell the country down the river to transnational corporations.
A newly leaked document posted on the Public Citizen website spells out the Obama administration’s “trade objectives” under the Trans-Pacific Partnership, including a plan to allow transnational corporations to skirt American banking, investment, environmental and labor laws. The laws would still apply to corporations based in the United States.
Transnational mega-corporations would be permitted to appeal American laws to a globalist international tribunal. If Congress over-rules the decisions of the tribunal the United States would face punitive trade sanctions.
Obama’s secret trade pact is basically NAFTA on steroids. “The leaked document shows that in all of the major respects, this is exactly the same template that was used in NAFTA and other agreements that President Obama campaigned against,” Todd Tucker, the research director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch division, told Slate.
So-called “liberal” Bill Clinton shepherded the passage of NAFTA, a trade bill that ultimately cost America around 700,000 jobs and shipped them to slave labor gulags in Mexico and then China and Asia. This was the “gaint sucking sound” Ross Perot warned about in 1992 before Clinton’s “free trade” agreement went into effect in 1994.
“The outrageous stuff in this leaked text may well be why U.S. trade officials have been so extremely secretive about these past two years of [trade] negotiations,” said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch.
Negotiations on the agreement were kept secret because the trade pact makes a mockery of Obama’s 2008 campaign promises.
“We will not negotiate bilateral trade agreements that stop the government from protecting the environment, food safety, or the health of its citizens; give greater rights to foreign investors than to U.S. investors; require the privatization of our vital public services; or prevent developing country governments from adopting humanitarian licensing policies to improve access to life-saving medications,” an Obama campaign document reads.
“Bush was better than Obama on this,” said Judith Rios, U.S. manager of Doctors Without Borders Access to Medicines Campaign, according to the Huffington Post. “It’s pathetic, but it is what it is. The world’s upside-down.”
Obama and Bush represent the same interests – the interests of “too big to fail” banks and transnational mega-corporations – and the overwhelming influences on both administrations are identical: Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citibank, and the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, the latter two dedicated to establishing world government.
In order to realize a world government dominated by banksters and multinational corporations, the United States – its laws and especially its Constitution and Bill of Rights – must be circumvented and eventually destroyed. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a big step in this direction.
Democrats who declare they will vote for Obama in November because they decry Romney as a stooge for the establishment should realize there is virtually no difference between the two candidates. Both will deliver the United States into slavery.
