Trading Away Your Freedom

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.
