How Trade Deals Like TPP Allow Overseas Organizations To Infringe On U.S. Sovereignty

POLIZETTE — “They’re making this stuff up. No trade agreement is going to force us to change our laws,” President Obama claimed in May 2015 in response to critics’ warnings that the Trans-Pacific Partnership could subvert U.S. regulations.

Unfortunately for Obama, free trade agreements like the TPP can and do force the U.S. to change its laws.

An issue of semantics in the extreme, the claim that no supranational entity is going to physically or even legally force the U.S. to change its laws is technically correct. But it is technically correct in the same way that it’s correct to say no one is actually forced to pay the mafia protection money. In reality, you must act or face dire consequences. In the case of trade, the threat is clear: Change your laws or pay up to countries that just won a complaint against you.

In December 2015, as part of the omnibus spending bill, Congress repealed the Country Of Origin Labeling law. It did so after the World Trade Organization authorized over $1 billion in annual sanctions against the U.S. until the rule was repealed.

  1. Who supports TPP? Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush. All bad news presidential candidates for Americans trying to save American sovereignty.

    Time to wake up, rise up, and speak up. Defeat TPP before Global Corporate Tribunals decide law and count rulings in America. Elected members of the US Congress will have no voice, no vote.
    Once these partnerships are in effect, government itself is privatized. There is no longer any point in legislatures, presidents, prime ministers, judges. Corporate tribunals decide law and court rulings.

    Treaties come from the United Nations.

    Still, republicans debate the same old issues and use the same old talking points but not one said we should get out of the United Nations.

    Where to start? GET the US out of the UN. Who got the US in the UN? It was a Democrat president, Harry Truman who became a significant contributor to the globalist agenda when he led the U.S. into joining the U.N.
