Did you know that Barack Obama has been secretly negotiating the most important trade agreement since the formation of the World Trade Organization?

Did you know that this agreement will impose very strict Internet copyright rules, ban all “Buy American” laws, give Wall Street banks much more freedom to trade risky derivatives and force even more domestic manufacturing offshore?

If you have not heard about this treaty, don’t feel bad. Obama has refused to even give Congress a copy of the draft agreement and he has banned members of Congress from attending the negotiations.

The plan is to keep this treaty secret until the very last minute and then to railroad it through Congress and have it signed into law by October.

The treaty is known as “the Trans-Pacific Partnership”, and the nations that are reported to be involved in the development of this treaty include the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia. Opponents of this treaty refer to it as “the NAFTA of the Pacific”, and if it is enacted it will push the deindustrialization of America into overdrive.

The “one world” economic agenda that Barack Obama has been pushing is absolutely killing the U.S. economy. As you will see later in this article, we are losing jobs and businesses at an astounding pace. And each new “free trade” agreement makes things even worse.

For example, just check out the impact that the recent free trade agreement that Obama negotiated with South Korea is having on us…

–A 10 percent decline of U.S. exports to Korea
–The U.S. trade deficit with Korea has climbed 37 percent
–U.S. auto industry has been crippled
–Loss of U.S. control where international trade, banking and finance is concerned
–A projected 159,000 jobs will be lost

Wait a second – I though that “free trade” agreements were actually supposed to increase exports.

So why have they declined by 10 percent?

Did someone make a really bad deal?

And of course we have all seen the economic devastation that NAFTA has wrought.

When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States actually had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars. By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.

And “free trade” with China has turned out to be a complete and total nightmare as well.

Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6 million dollars (million with a little “m”) for the entire year.

The “Trans-Pacific Partnership”: Obama’s Secret Trade Agreement Will Push the Deindustrialization of America into Overdrive

Why won’t Obama let us know exactly what is in this treaty?

Fortunately, there have been a few leaks. One thing that we have discovered is that this new treaty would reportedly ban all “Buy American laws“.

That certainly would not be popular if it got out.

And do you remember SOPA?

The American people wanted nothing to do with the very strict Internet copyright provisions of SOPA and loudly expressed their displeasure to members of Congress.

Unfortunately, now the provisions of SOPA are back. It is being reported that most of the provisions of SOPA have been quietly inserted into this treaty. If this treaty is enacted, those provisions will become law and the American people will not be able to do anything about it.

And according to the New York Times, there are all sorts of other disturbing things that have been slipped into the treaty…

And yet another leak revealed that the deal would include even more expansive incentives to relocate domestic manufacturing offshore than were included in Nafta — a deal that drained millions of manufacturing jobs from the American economy.

The agreement would also be a boon for Wall Street and its campaign to water down regulations put in place after the 2008 financial crisis. Among other things, it would practically forbid bans on risky financial products, including the toxic derivatives that helped cause the crisis in the first place.

Are you starting to understand why the Obama administration is keeping this treaty such a secret?

If the details of this treaty were revealed to the American people right now, it would create such an uproar that Congress would never approve this treaty.

So please share this article with as many people as you can. We have got to get the American people educated about this.

Enough damage has already been done to the U.S. economy by “free trade” agreements. Just consider the following statistics…

Mass murderers still have the right as citizens to represent themselves in a court of law.

Terrorists who scream a jihadist cry before opening fire on our military don't.

The same military who would lay down their lives to protect their murderers' rights.

Poor Eed, got so excited he responded to the wrong post.

There are not enough lungs & people die waiting for organs to become available.

Who are you going to kill to give lungs to this girl?

Every person on the waiting list has a doctor who wants to make sure their patient gets what they need.

So which doctor decides?

That is why they came up with a procedure.

They decided not to transplant adult lungs into small children because of the extra risk in cutting down the size of the adult lungs to fit the smaller child.

It is a sad thing when organs are not available.

Are you an organ donor. Are your kids signed up? That is the solution to this problem.

Not having a GD fit & blaming Obamacare for something that was set in 2004.

Well, here goes the only leg Homer and some others on here had to stand on.

The Dow tumbles more than 200 points amid weak economic reports and worries about interest rates.

What's not clear from the selling is how far the market could fall.

So all of you were wrong about Obama saving the economy. That was the last knot in the rope ya'll have been clinging to.

Fact: A heckler's main objective is the suppression of the First Amendment. They cross the line between protected free speech and unacceptable conduct.

Remember the 11 students who were convicted in 2010 for heckling the Israeli Ambassador to the US?

An assistant DA during the trial said it most eloquently, "Free speech is not absolute. It does not include the right to suppress or cancel another person's right to free speech. If it did, then no one would have the right to free speech."

LOL. Let's see, when Obama took over the presidency, the Dow sat at 7,949 and it now sits at 14,960(even after a 200 point tumble), yet, for some insane reason, you view that as a sign Obama didn't save the economy. Have you ever thought of having your head examined?
