Divide and conquer works. When you face a strong enemy it's good strategy to break them apart into smaller units that can be fought separately.
"More trade is always good." Is that really right? Do our current international trade policies as applied under our current economic order a good thing or a bad thing for We the People of the United States?
Conservatives are using this Export-Import Bank issue to look like populist champions fighting against "corporate welfare" on behalf of the taxpayer. Don't believe it. This is part of a bigger attack.
Cheap labor is the whole point of our corporate-rigged, NAFTA-style trade agreements. But tolerating slavery? Really? Unfortunately, it looks like that's what is happening with the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
An attachment to a "must-pass" bill gives sacred Native-American land to a foreign mining company. How did this happen and what can we do about it?
Now that the corporations have fast-track trade authority in the bag, they are trying to push a huge, huge tax giveaway through Congress. We have to get the word out so this doesn't just sneak through.
A crisis is being engineered to get people complaining about the "slow, inefficient" Post Office. It's time for the public to demand that Congress act to end the crisis.
Our enormous, humongous trade deficit is a measure of how many jobs, factories, companies and industries we are losing to our pro-Wall Street trade policies.
What do we do now that fast-track trade authority has passed? We take this awareness and energy into the fight against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. And then, win or lose, we build a fair trade movement.
This fast-track trade authority push was different, more aggressive, less concerned with how it looked. Is this how business will be done in the 21st century? Maybe, but maybe not.
As of late Thursday, 118 Republicans and 20 Democrats were either declared or leaning “yes” votes. There were 44 Republicans and 135 Democrats declared or leaning “no.” CALL!
Corporations are famous for sneaking things into laws and regulations before the public can rally to stop it. Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership's wording on state-owned enterprises a mandate for privatization?
If we swamp them with phone calls, we will deliver a powerful message that can overpower the big corporate money that is pushing fast track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
This is not a drill. The vote in the House of Representatives on fast track, preapproving the Trans-Pacific Partnership before the public finds out what is in it, could take place this week.
The House is expected to vote on fast track trade promotion authority as soon as next week. If it passes, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a done deal. Why is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton still silent on this?
