Trans-Pacific Trade Deal Is Complete – Final Agreements Reached Today….

Wall Street wants the TPP deal.  The Obama administration wants the TPP deal.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants the TPP deal.  Rupert Murdoch wants the TPP deal.  Fox News wants the TPP deal.  Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, Rick Perry all approve the TPP deal.  Candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio supported fast track trade authority for the TPP deal.

The TPP deal is exceptionally bad for U.S. manufacturing and jobs.

(Via Reuters)  The United States and 11 other Pacific Rim countries have reached a sweeping deal to set up a free-trade zone for 40 percent of the world’s economy, but the accord on Monday faced initial skepticism in the U.S. Congress.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is the most ambitious trade pact in a generation and could reshape industries and influence the cost of products from cheese to cancer treatments, presenting key issues also for drug companies and automakers.

Tired negotiators worked round the clock over the weekend to settle tough issues such as monopoly rights for new biotech drugs. A demand by New Zealand for greater access for its dairy exports was only settled at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 GMT) on Monday.

Details of the pact were emerging in statements by officials after days of marathon talks in Atlanta.

The 12 countries will cut trade barriers and set common standards for a region stretching from Vietnam to Canada. The agreement could be a legacy-defining achievement for Democratic President Barack Obama, if it is ratified by Congress.

Lawmakers in other TPP countries must also approve the deal, which would reduce or eliminate tariffs on almost 18,000 categories of goods like machinery, chemicals and food. (read more)

      I just read that one myself. The whole thing stinks to high heaven. The part that scared me the most was about other countries being able to determine immigration policies for the U.S.

        Local radio is shilling for this thing.

        Other countries will decide all kinds of things over the US.

        It’s likely the ATT is backloaded, too, so then come the gun-control NAZIs.

        Speaking of cold anger, I’m the type of person with a long fuse but once it’s lit you don’t want to be around me. Just reading this stuff here on the tpp and the sessions article on breitbart and knowing the agreement is backloaded with secret dealsI my blood is boiling. How could anybody who loves this country allow this stuff to happen and how could true patriotic Americans sit on their azzz and do nothing about it. I’m disgusted and angry.

      http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2015/06/house-votes-to-repeal-country-of-origin-labeling-for-meat/

      The House of Representatives has voted to repeal country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, and chicken.

      Texas Republican Rep. Michael Conaway’s Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 passed late Wednesday night by a 300-131 vote.

      Conaway introduced the bill on May 18 — the same day the World Trade Organization rejected a U.S. appeal of its decision that COOL unfairly discriminates against meat imports and gives the advantage to domestic meat products.

      So this is what “free” trade is. We can’t even identify where the products come from because we might want to choose the ones from our own country. This is insane. I’m so tired of this global sh!t.

    this is hardly surprising, the new world order has been using this to destroy national sovereignty. next step to marry the EU to the TPP.

    control the language and you control the thoughts and the people. who can be against “free trade” usually the truth is the opposite of what ever a politician says.

    Has Hillary been forced yet to take a position on TPP? If so, what is it? How about Biden? Maybe the Teamsters & UAW will be forced to back Trump. Hope they figure that out in time to motivate their members to switch their party registration to Republican (where necessary).

        Yes, but Obama won’t do anything that would expose the lie of the two party illusion. He is just there to set things up. This is the same with RomneyCare. Obama wanted single payer health care. However, he said he couldn’t get it through congress, yet not a single republican voted for the ACA. It was all smoke and mirrors social engineering.

    This is so disheartening! Once again America loses to the machinations and contrivances of the political class. It is as if they sit around in the dark to think up of ways to make deals (and laws when not making deals) take advantage of We the People. The political class in DC is feverishly looking for ways to take our money, our Constitutional rights and freedoms and leave us to subsist at their mercy. How long O LORD????!!!!!
    And what’s more, Drudge is reporting that the WH says Oevil is trying to find EO way to do gun control on us!!!! This seems to never end. We are indeed living in a post Constitutional America. The elections can’t come soon enough for me….

    I get the feeling that in about 100 years the Chinese National Geographic will have teams coming here filming the quaint natives trying to trap squirrels in the park or poke a possom out of drain pipe for dinner. Major US cities swill have the air – literally and figuratively – of major African and Latin American cities as hordes of unemployed try to hustle tourists on ‘3rd World’ tours.
    We don’t make much any more, we have schools that are behind much of the world’s school. We are importing the 3rd world’s dregs and ignore programs that would bring the world’s best educated in. We can’t raise the ceiling so people like Obama lower the floor. Yup, floor-lowering is going to become the national norm – look out below.

      Bombing the Islamic State runs counter to the agenda revealed in Defense Intelligence Agency documents from 2012.

      The documents show the United States and its partners in the Gulf states and Turkey supported the Islamic State and planned to establish a Salafist principality in Syria.

      The Pentagon has admitted it “helped build ISIS” and armed the group with weapons transferred from Benghazi, Libya.

    Does’t this remind you, ahem, more ‘seasoned’ folks of the original ‘Rollerball’? Corporations controlled sectors and cities which competed against each other with teams in the game of rollerball. Terrific line–‘There are no rules.’ No, there aren’t, are there? There remain only corporate interests. I think a ‘search and destroy’ action against corporate interests is long overdue. Expose the plutocrats, COOs, CEOs, board members and executive management of corps that benefit from paupering US workers. And let history take its course whenever working people are denied work and bread. Agngry mobs don’t vote. They gillotine. One reason bread is STILL subsidized in France.
