The Obama administration wants to cover up the offshoring of American jobs instead of responding to the American public's demand to know where products are manufactured so they can have the freedom to choose whether or not to buy "Made in USA" products.
The business and political “globalization” movement kills our middle class manufacturing jobs and weakens our nation to save a few pennies. Globalization sends our jobs and money abroad in exchange for shabby goods over at Mega-Mart! Every time a retailer sells America out for a foreign-made piece of junk, our nation is that much weaker.
The crisis in Ukraine and the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight have done more than expose weaknesses in regional security and international air safety arrangements. They have exposed fundamental flaws in the bedrock assumptions underlying that secular faith known as globalization.
The southeast Asian nation of Brunei has adopted a brutal penal code based on Sharia law with punishments that include flogging, dismemberment and death by stoning for crimes such as adultery and sodomy, but the Obama administration doesn’t care. It is still pushing Obamatrade aka the TransPacific Partnership with Brunei. With partners like that, who needs enemies?
While the U.S. economy created 288,000 jobs in April, that’s not the number to look at to see how the economy is performing. Two numbers released today will tell you all you need to know about where we are and where we are going as a nation.
Members of Congress are back home districts for the the next two weeks. This is our opportunity to let them know how we feel about Obamatrade and "fast track," critical issues threatening our jobs and Constitution.
Malaysia’s missing airliner and Russia’s takeover of Crimea show us that the bedrock assumptions of globalization are illusions. People around the world are more proud of their national identity than their brand of smart phone, no matter what the corporatist elites try to tell us. And just because some country can buy an airliner, that doesn't make it equal to the good ole USA.
The free market CATO Institute is blasting the TransPacific Partnership (aka Obamatrade) for giving “special privileges to foreign corporations” that will “encourage outsourcing” and put American businesses at a competitive disadvantage. If that weren’t bad enough, the think tank says Obamatrade also gives bailouts to corporatist insiders and undermines the rule of law and national sovereignty.
Obamatrade is not about trade and never was. It’s sold as a magic elixir that will cure all ills – Jobs! Prosperity! World Peace! - but it is in fact a toxic brew that weakens the American body politic and the Constitution. Obamatrade undermines our national sovereignty and that’s what it was designed to do.
