Breaking: Obama Just Quietly Signed the TPP

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Obama just quietly signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, one of the biggest multinational trade deals in history that aims to break down trade barriers between countries comprising 40 percent of the global economy, in New Zealand.

Yep. It’s done.

“We should get TPP done this year and give more American workers the shot at success they deserve and help more American businesses compete and win around the world,” Obama said.

Obama didn’t even sign it in person. He sent sent U.S. trade representative Michael Froman on his behalf.

Senator Jeff Sessions said the White House downplayed the news because the administration realizes how unhappy the public will be when the realization hits.

Via Washington Examiner:

“A trade deal is a contract, and it must be one that puts American workers’ interests first, not the interests of global elites,” Sessions said in a statement. “It is little surprise the administration is not showcasing today’s signing given its unpopularity with the American people.”

Only four others voted against fast tracking the deal with Sessions.

In addition:

A Tufts University study found the TPP will cost nearly 450,000 American jobs in the next nine years.

Obama will urge Congress to ratify it as soon as possible.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said:

“The American people have been left out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership from the very beginning and it shows in the resulting agreement. If this deal is enacted, the American people will be left behind as corporations benefit.”

      These corporations masquerading a govs are trying to kill the golden goose that is us. Time for them all to go and restore the organic constitution.

      “the American people will be left behind as corporations benefit”
      Ah slight correction, FOREIGN corporations will benefit.

      I don’t know if anyone read the tpp document that leaked some months back but it actually lays out a few things such as:
      These countries can come to our countries, buy land, strip mine the resources and ship back the raw or finished products straight to their home countries first, but law..

      The only good thing i noticed about the TPP was that China was involved.. And I think this trade deal is being setup with can/usa/mexico etc to cut off China’s growth and the knee’s.. Not only that but when we go to ww3 with Russia and china, China won’t be able to cut off our cheaply made products, and I think that is the biggest reason for this deal next to that fact that the elite bankers want have been at economic war with china and russia for a few years now..

      Once this deal gets going, and china and their brics nations won’t be able to sell their products to the west, we will probably see nukes start to fly around… China is actually stupid, almost to smart their dumb.. All they had to do was keep making cheap products and not try to become the worlds reserve currency and this wouldn’t of happened. Now, their economy is basically finished.. They will have to resort to sinking shipping barges leaving south asia tpp partner countries because they have no more chess moves left.. They can’t simply rely on their brics partners to be the new consumers once North America tells them to go pound sand.. This is actually the trigger for world war, and it might be by design, but it might also take 2-5 years to culminate into physical warfare and not just the economic warfare we have been seeing.
