Andy Ramirez reports on Trade Promotion Authority, an executive power that Congress can grant President Obama in regard to negotiating trade agreements with other nations.
He also talks about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which President Obama would use his executive authority, if granted, to negotiate with currently 11 other nations in the Pacific Rim.
“To sell the constitutionally suspect power grab known as the trade promotion authority to an increasingly skeptical Congress, Obama’s shills are saying ‘Congress should provide this president with the same authority in terms of trade promotion that every president’s had since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.'” ~American Jobs Alliance

Author of the book “International Merger by Foreign Entanglements,” JBS CEO Arthur Thompson offers an overview of the agenda behind so-called free trade. His presentation includes discussion of Trade Promotion Authority and two free trade agreements currently being negotiated by the United States: the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
President Obama is asking Congress for “fast-track” Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) so that he can negotiate and sign a “free trade” agreement with eleven Pacific Rim nations known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that threatens American jobs and surrenders American sovereignty to international authority.
Congressional approval of TPA and TPP would hurt American business owners, Americans who work for a living, and even our ability to govern ourselves as an independent nation.
A vote on TPA could happen during the lame-duck session of Congress, which convened on November 12 and is expected to stay in session until mid-December or so. That’s why you should contact your representative and senators in Congress in strong opposition to TPA immediately.
