Obama’s Secret Treaty Which Will Push The Deindustrialization Of America Into Overdrive


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 million dollars (million with a little "m") for the entire year.

In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars.  That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.

But instead of learning from the mistakes of the past, Barack Obama is pressing for more "free trade" agreements.

The New York Times is calling the Trans-Pacific Partnership "the most significant international commercial agreement since the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1995".  It is reportedly going to include a whole host of provisions which would never be able to get through Congress on their own.  Even though this treaty will affect all of our daily lives, the Obama administration is keeping this treaty a total secret.  In fact, Obama won't even show it to Congress even though members of Congress have asked repeatedly to see it…

The agreement, under negotiation since 2008, would set new rules for everything from food safety and financial markets to medicine prices and Internet freedom. It would include at least 12 of the countries bordering the Pacific and be open for more to join. President Obama has said he wants to sign it by October.

Although Congress has exclusive constitutional authority to set the terms of trade, so far the executive branch has managed to resist repeated requests by members of Congress to see the text of the draft agreement and has denied requests from members to attend negotiations as observers — reversing past practice.

While the agreement could rewrite broad sections of nontrade policies affecting Americans' daily lives, the administration also has rejected demands by outside groups that the nearly complete text be publicly released.

So exactly who in the world does this guy think that he is?  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 (Stop Online Piracy Act)?

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…

-The United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.

-Back in the year 2000, there were more than 17 million Americans working in manufacturing.  Now there are less than 12 million.

-There are less Americans working in manufacturing today than there was in 1950 even though the population of the country has more than doubled since then.

-According to the Economic Policy Institute, America is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.

-According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades if current trends continue.

-Today, corporate profits as a percentage of U.S. GDP are at an all-time high, but wages as a percentage of U.S. GDP are near an all-time low.

-Without enough good jobs, more Americans are becoming dependent on the government.  If you can believe it, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from about 17 million in the year 2000 to more than 47 million today.

-Overall, the United States has run a trade deficit of more than 8 trillion dollars with the rest of the world since 1975.

And things continue to get even worse.  The Institute for Supply Management manufacturing index declined to 49.0 in May.  Any reading below 50 indicates contraction.

That was the lowest reading that we have seen since June 2009.  Just like most of the rest of the world, we are rapidly heading toward another major economic downturn.

And if you want a perfect visual example of what deindustrialization is doing to America, just look at the city of Detroit.

It was once one of the greatest manufacturing cities in the history of the world, but now it is a rotting, decaying, festering hellhole.

According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit, and at this point the city is so broke that there is talk that the female giraffe at the Detroit Zoo could be sold off to help pay the bills.

For much more on how deindustrialization is ripping the guts out of the U.S. economy, please see the following articles…

1) "55 Reasons Why You Should Buy Products That Are Made In America"

2) "40 Ways That China Is Beating America"

3) "Show This To Anyone That Believes That 'Things Are Getting Better' In America"

4) "10 Amazing Charts That Demonstrate The Slow, Agonizing Death Of The American Worker"

5) "22 Stats That Show How The Emerging One World Economy Is Absolutely Killing American Workers"

What Barack Obama is trying to do is a mind blowing mistake.

The "one world" economic agenda that he is pursuing is destroying the American worker and the American middle class.

U.S. workers are being thrown into a global labor pool with workers on the other side of the planet that live in countries where it is legal to pay slave labor wages.

Do you want to directly compete with a worker on the other side of the globe that is doing your job for a dollar an hour with no benefits?

If not, you need to stand up and make your voice be heard.

There is no way in the world that American workers should have to compete for jobs with workers making slave labor wages in communist China.

What we desperately need are some red-blooded economic patriots to arise and to tell both political parties that we do not want this "one world" economic agenda.

So what do you think?

Will the American people wake up, or will our economy continue to lose thousands of businesses and millions of jobs?

    Ya all know, billy boy clinton passed NAFTA , CAFTA , which started the exiting of manufacturing out of the USA !!

    hilberry clinton did admit to be a communist !!

    • Matforce

      You're right, Clinton signed the bill into law, but is was forged, like I said in a previous post, by Bush Sr., Salinas, and Mulroney and taken home for a vote in their respective legislatures. It didn't come up for a vote in the US until Clinton was in office and then, like I said, he had an arduous task of talking the Dems into voting for it, If you check the vote count, many more republicans voted in favor of this bill than Dems, but by today's standard, it was an overwhelmingly bi-partisan vote. Republicans ALWAYS vote in favor the move toward the corporatization of America the Beautiful. Did you look up the fate of Bill S3816?

    • JeffWW

      The rapid departure of American manufacturing started fa long time ago. As long as taxes, unions and regulations keep America from not being able to compete as a nation the process will continue. The treaties signed by Clinton made thing happen faster. But we still have not fully implemented the treaty by making other nations comply. But the BO treaty will just push us over the cliff in the black hole nation of poor slaves

    • Matforce

      Why doesn't the USA implement tougher sanctions some call "fair trade" practices instead of the "free trade" treaties we have now? In my view, that would really make those lobbyists' donors who've paid for this legislation to be passed, angry with them, legislation that grants excessive privilege to those at the top of the food chain.

      For an eye opening expose on the current (actually it's a 30 year trend) view the following clips. I saved the best (and longest) for last as it addresses the Global Power Shift we're seeing unfold today..

    Free Trade with Europe? Yes! Free Trade with Canada? Yes! Free Trade with Australia? Yes! But Tree Trade with the world's sweatshops? No!
    Tariff and Duty Free trade with those nations of the world that have similar wages, workers rights, benefits, pensions, environmental laws, human rights, safety standards, etc. with those of the USA. Absolutely!
    The USA could do a lot of good if she were truly concerned about bringing the living standards of the rest of the world up to the standards we enjoy by refusing to do business with nations who exploit their people and deny them human rights and a decent living wage. Instead, you hear a lot of talk about "downward pressure on wages," and "right to work laws," and competition in the global economy for jobs. Like getting in a pissing match with a pole cat, some have come to use the phrase, "race to the bottom."
    Consider Germany. They impose a 19% tariff on imports and have slapped a VAT (value added tax) on Chines products (China tried to dump cheap bikes in German borders; they taxed them a whopping 48.5%) to protect their vital manufacturing sector and keep their wages high.
    Our elite only see short term $$$ and NOT the consumer cycle that makes that possible. Discretionary spending or disposable income is the engine that drives a consumer economy, not the consolidation of wealth at the top! We never learn!

  • mari

    This will be another, "you have to vote for it to find out what's in it" screwing of the country.

  • Marsha Carter

    Your missing the point that this is not "Obama's agenda". Do you honestly believe for one minute that he is smart enough to pull any of this off without someone behind him pulling the strings? He is just a puppet same as "W" was. This is the agenda of the elite, the Bilderburg group. As long as we continue to elect those whom the GOP and the Dems shove down our throat, we will continue to get the elite's agenda.

    • runsinquicksand

      This goes higher up than the Bilderberg Group. It even goes higher than the UN.

    • Marsha Carter

      That's quite a video! Thanks for sharing Marforce. Runsinquicksand, I think you will find that the Bilderberg core controls the UN. They are the 1%, not just in this country but in the world. They are the ones who control the Federal Reserve and all the banking interests around the world. The UN just becomes their hand in stimulating and crushing economies through war and gives them a shield to hide behind in controlling peoples. How else could you have Muslim leaders talking about women's and children's issues. They also bow to the Bilderbergs.

    • Matforce

      I agree, Marsha. A strident, powerful, independent, innovative nation like the USA would have to be brought into alliance in some way to accept its role as an interdependent nation. How better to do that than with FTAs? Export jobs to 3rd world nations whose citizens will work for peanuts (China- $1.36/hr. avg. wage, some work for 30 cents/hr.), no human rights, minimal regulations, then ship this cheap crap back on our shores to soak the nation and fleece our declining, but still potent consumer market for all they're worth! And the profit margins of these "transnationals" or "multinationals," or "globalists" are going through the roof! Then to put icing on the cake, they park this vast wealth in offshore tax havens to avoid contributing to their nation of origin (look up: $32 TRILLION in tax havens). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPKKQnijnsM

      Who's got the largest economy in the world (but declining)? And how do we redistribute that economy's vast wealth and consolidate it unto ourselves? Answer: FTAs!

  • Matforce

    FTAs beginning with NAFTA and GATT were a promise of new markets for Made in USA goods... or were they? As Clinton said, "I believe NAFTA will create 2 million new jobs in the first five years... If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't have signed the bill..." Perot's prophetic, southern drawl address, "When all you care about is making money, there'll be a giant sucking sound headin' south," seems on the mark. But when China joined the WTO in 2001 with MFN status, even our jobs in Mexico left for China!

    A quick study of the history of NAFTA will uncover the origins go back to the 60s when our garment, shoe, textile, etc. industries were "outsourced" to South and Central Americas. And the 70s when electronics like audio, tv, toys, etc. left for Japan. This "offshoring" model, shared in board rooms across the US were perfected by the time NAFTA was being introduced. It was our Bush Sr. Canada's Mulroney, and Mexico's Salinas that wrote the treaty and took it home for ratification in their respective governments. And if you look at the votes on the bill, Clinton had an arduous task of convincing a reluctant caucus to vote for the bill.

    Now the TPP, some are calling, "NAFTA on steroids," is on the horizon. We had steady trade surpluses up until 1975. Then after a few years of this "offshoring" trend we began to experience persistent trade deficits. But when China joined the WTO our trade deficits climbed to over half a BILLION/yr. some years to more than $800 BILLION! That's nearly a TRILLION a year! What nation can sustain that?

    Check out the fate of Bill S3816, Creating American Jobs and Ending Offshoring Act; what it contained and how they voted. Speaks volumes.

    Here's a clip about the "Global Power Shift," for an interesting perspective on what the future holds in this move toward international governance:

    The
    Death of America & the US Constitution

    July
    4, 2009

    Prediction

    The
    Obama administration
    is working on the plan now to destroy this county and create a
    Kingdom for Obama.

    The
    Democrats will lose control of the House of Representative in the
    2010 election.

    The
    Administration under the direction of Hillary Clinton is working on
    secrete agreements with Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Venezuela, George
    Soros and the newly released Muslim Terrorists from Guantanamo to
    create a world crisis before the 2012 election. Obama will declare
    marshal law, void the Civil Rights of all Americans, and void the
    2012 election. Under Marshal Law he will Dissolve the House of
    Representatives and arrest opposition.

    He
    will enlist the Illegal Immigrants who had been given citizenship by
    The Democrats into the New
    Brown Shirts
    of America that would be loyal to Obama and not the Constitution.

    Then
    the NEW Holocaust will begin.

    The
    next step will be the appointment of a young Communist Manifesto
    Trained ACLU lawyer As a Supreme court justice.

    Then
    Ginsberg will resign because of health and a young Communist
    Manifesto Trained ACLU lawyer will be appointed as a Supreme court
    justice.

    Liberty
    and Freedom have been written in blood since the time of Mosses.

    Follow
    the dotes of Hillary, and Holder as they murder this county for King
    Obama.

    P.S.
    July 4, 2010

    Knowing
    that the liberal press has trouble selling their papers one wonders
    who’s paying the bills? Has the Liberal press been bought by Multi
    national financiers namely the Arab sheiks or other oil interests
    that want to destroy America because of their Muslim believe?
    Are they setting the editorial policies of both the papers and TV.

    Because the
    “justice department” under Eric Holder will not enforce the Laws
    or the Constitution the Supreme Court should send in US Marshall's
    with the help of Special Operations troops to regain control of the
    government for the people of this country.

    God
    bless America Land of the Brave and Home of the Free!!!

    New
    post script-8-18-2010.Why Obama does not care what happens in 2010.
    The Most terrifying man in the world-Obama.

    The
    newest fear that has me shaking from the top of my head to the tip of
    my toes is that Hillary Clinton may become the next Secretary of
    Defense. This is the next piece in the puzzle in the master plan of
    Obama to become the Dictator of the US or maybe the world.

    The
    Clinton's have been working toward this since Bill Clinton gave the
    Chinese at guidance system and other dealing with them that are
    harmful to the US.

    The
    Clinton's did their best to destroy the economy and the military. If
    Hillary is Secretary of defense she will continue this same plan. She
    may even give secrets to our enemies. This will work with her secret
    plans with foreign powers to create an emergency that will result in
    Obama imposing Marshall law before the 2012 election.

    From
    people that know Hillary, she is a tyrant; she makes Heinrich
    Himmler, look like an angle.

    Obama
    has no intent to give up the RED Nuclear button in 2012.

    Obama
    and Hillary Clinton plan to use the Mexican drug gangs as guerrilla
    forces to keep our police forces and National Guard occupied while
    they strengthen their hold on the US.

  • Samuel Barnett

    The one thing americans haven't really ask themselves why are we in this mess.. The Constitution of America was produced as a set of laws to govern the people of a REPUBLIC NATION> BUT IN AROUND 1913 OUR GOVERNMENT BETRAYED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.. IF you take the Constitution now an compare it to the ORIGINAL BACK THEN you will find a few differences.. When they changed things the way they did,America was no longer a REPUBLIC it BECAME (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) FREEDOM IS THE BASIS OF A REPUBLIC) THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BECAME A CORPORATION> THE FEDERAL RESERVE WAS CREATED THEN, A PRIVATE CENTRAL BANK with the IRS as It's Collection AGENTS... SO over the YEARS since 1913 THE PRESIDENT HAS FOLLOWED EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT SINCE 1913 THAT THEY ARE HEAD OF A CORPORATION..THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE WORKERS FOR THAT CORPORATION...THAT'S WHY THEY SAY THE CONSTITUTION MEANS NOTHING TO THEM AND WHY THEY FEEL WE AS AMERICANS HAVE NO RIGHTS, WE ARE SORT OF SLAVES TO THEIR CORPORATION.. THEY HAVE HIDDEN THIS KNOWLEDGE FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPL VERY CAREFULLY SO THEY WOULD NOT HAVE A REBELLION ON THEIR HANDS>>THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB OF HIDING THE TRUTH, BUT PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO AWAKEN MORE AND THEY ARE BECOMING AFRAID> WHAT I HAVE SAID CAN BE CHECKED, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK FOR THE TRUTH INSTEAD OF BURYING YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND!!!! AMERICANS NEED TO TAKE BACK AMERICA IF YOU WANT FREEDOM THAT A REPUBLIC GIVES YOU AS ORIGIONALY!!!! THIS IS WHERE NOW WHERE AGENDA 21 > NEW WORLD ORDER> ONE WORLD RELIGION>ALL THE TREATIES THAT DESTROY AMERICAN WORKERS> OUR SOLVERIN NATION IS BEING DESTROYED( UNITED STATES-MEXICO-CANIDA ALL UNDER ONE BANNER->AMERO MONEY & TRADE)> THE UN GUN CONTROL TREATY OBAMA JUST SIGNED ( NO GUNS EQUALS NO PROTECTION FROM OBAMA AND HIS CRONIES TAKE OVER OF AMERICANS, YOU WILL DO WHAT GOVERNMENT TELLS YOU > THIS IS ALL NEW WORLD ORDER STUFF>IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CONTINUE TO JUST SIT BACK AN LET IT HAPPEN THEN THEY HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES!!!!!

    • Matforce

      I agree, Samuel. This didn't start with Obama, this has been going on for decades, but hit high gear when China became the world's sweatshop, and our corporate elites moved our magnificent manufacturing sector to the four winds, especially China. Our "smartest men in the room" GAVE them or manufacturing methods, our technological advances, our trade secrets, our missiles and missile defense systems, our electronics, etc. to make a cheaper product they could sell back in the USA and compound their profit margins; thus the "global economy" of the top, by the top and for the top.

      AND china became the largest POLLUTER of the world !!!
      Smog, acid rain and 5H1T , dead animals, chemicals, oil, in their streams & rivers & ocean shores. And the USA is the CLEANEST in the world !!!

    • Matforce

      Which makes the USA more expensive to do business in. But when is enough, enough? Our singularly pure, existentialist capitalists would point to the 35% business tax the USA slaps on her businesses, which anyone with any experience in accounting 101 knows is a liability. But you rarely hear a word from them about the estimated $340 BILLION in tax-write-offs, credits, itemized deductions, subsidies and other tax loopholes available in our tax code that brings corporate tax rates closer to from 0% to 15%. And these are some of the most profitable corporations this world has ever seen. While businesses that stay home and hire USA workers are cutting costs to the bone to compete in the "global economy." Leaving a declining middle class to pick up the tab for the most sophisticated, advanced, EXPENSIVE nation in the world. Disgusting!

    • Matforce

      How about this one from Nick Hanauer? He bought in on Amazon.com and is now a Billionaire. This one won't be aired on any of our news media, and was subject to a rare banning from TED. This guy's message is spot on!

    It's not a secret that he's been working behind the scenes to bring about the NWO, and the One World Religion that accompanies it. He has met with more than one Pope and many religious leaders from all over the world and they are all in agreement. This NWO and OWR is their answer to peace through unity. They are foolish enough to believe that if we all become one, from here to Timbuktu, everything will be honkey dory. Everything that he does in this country is leading up to this agenda and he has the help and support of all the heads of state all over this world who want the same thing. Many reputable people have reported on these not-so-secret conferences in New York and elsewhere around this country and abroad. Whether Americans or asleep or wide awake is not the question, the real question is, just what are the options available for us to take on a worldwide agenda?
