Donald Trump hits home run with his Economic Team leaders

American Jobs Alliance President Dennis Black released this statement on President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Steve Mnuchin to serve as Treasury Secretary and Wilbur Ross to serve as Commerce Secretary:

It's official: Obama sending TPP to Congress

The White House put Congress on official notice that it will be sending lawmakers a bill to implement President Barack Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement later this year.


The White House submitted what's known as a Statement of Administrative Action giving Congress a 30-day notification that the administration plans to present legislation implementing the TPP. 


Obama has previously said that he intends to push the TPP in the lame-duck session of Congress after the election.  


Trump Stands Strong Against Globalism

Trump Declares America First

In his foreign policy address, Donald Trump warned against following the “false song of globalism.” This was a sharply different note and counterpoint to President Obama’s “No Walls” European tour.


Donald Trump declared the nation state to be the foundation for harmony. He is openly skeptical of international unions that tie America down like Gulliver and the Lilliputians.


TPP doesn't curb China, it helps China

President Obama sold Obamacare by telling us “If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance.” 


Now he is selling Obamtrade, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, by telling us “If we don’t write the rules for the global economy, China will.”  


Once again, the White House spin doesn’t line up with the facts.  And once again, people who should know better are buying the spin.


Obamatrade overrides Congress, the Constitution and threatens U.S. sovereignty

The U.S. Congress would be cut out of decisions impacting our economy and laws under the terms of the TransPacific Partnership agreement President Obama has negotiated and intends to sign.


The administration on Thursday finally released the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a global regulatory pact it has been negotiating in secret over the last six years.  The TPP currently involves 12 countries on four continents.


TransPacific Partnership trashes American jobs and sovereignty

After five years of back-room negotiations and an all-night session of horse-trading, Obama’s negotiators decided which industries to sacrifice and which ones to reward with the TransPacific Partnership. The bailed-out bankers and health insurance companies made out well. The American people and small businesses were not at the table. And if you're not at the table, you're on the menu.

ObamaTrade: We have not yet begun to fight

By just one vote, Congress approved giving President Obama fast track power to negotiate the TransPacific Partnership. That sets the stage for the next battle: the fight to defeat the TransPacific Partnership.As John Paul Jones said as he stood on the burning deck of the Bonhomme Richard, "I have not yet begun to fight." He went on to victory.

Rep Dave Brat Perfectly Explains GOP Skepticism Of The TPP

Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) says his opposition to the fast track power GOP leaders want to grant the president stems from his distrust of Obama and of GOP leaders in the Senate.


Sen. Jeff Sessions sounds the alarm on Fast Track for TransPacific Partnership

Sen. Jeff Sessions is sounding the alarm. He’s warning his Senate colleagues and the American public that voting for fast track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would pave the way for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), aka Obamatrade, a so-called “free trade” deal that’s fraught with problems and concerns.

The Big Lie behind "Fast Track" Trade Promotion Authority

The shills for fast track trade promotion authority say every president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt has had this power, so Congress should give it to Barack Obama, too.

But like so much of what we hear from politicians, what they're saying is a lie.
