Democrats who plan to vote for Obama in November should be aware that the president is poised to sell the country down the river to transnational corporations. A newly leaked document posted on the Public Citizen website spells out the Obama administration’s “trade objectives” under the Trans-Pacific Partnership, including a plan to allow transnational corporations to skirt American banking, investment, environmental and labor laws. The laws would still apply to corporations based in the United States. Transnational mega-corporations would be permitted to appeal American laws to a globalist international tribunal. If Congress over-rules the decisions of the tribunal the United States would face punitive trade sanctions. Obama’s secret trade pact is basically NAFTA on steroids. “The leaked document shows that in all of the major respects, this is exactly the same template that was used in NAFTA and other agreements that President Obama campaigned against,” Todd Tucker, the research director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch division, told Slate. So-called “liberal” Bill Clinton shepherded the passage of NAFTA, a trade bill that ultimately cost America around 700,000 jobs and shipped them to slave labor gulags in Mexico and then China and Asia. This was the “gaint sucking sound” Ross Perot warned about in 1992 before Clinton’s “free trade” agreement went into effect in 1994. “The outrageous stuff in this leaked text may well be why U.S. trade officials have been so extremely secretive about these past two years of [trade] negotiations,” said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch.
