In the wake of the seemingly staged Charleston shooting, and the agitprop Confederate controversy which has since followed – the US Senate has pushed through the fast-track Trade Promotion Authority unabated…
The US Senate approved the controversial ‘fast-track’ trade authority that will usher in new international trade agreements backed by many multi-national and transnational corporations.
If passed, new international trade treaties like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) open the door for private corporations to exempt themselves from the laws of sovereign nations under the pretense of a so-called free-trade agreement.
As we noted here at 21WIRE last week, the vote for fast-track authority, was nothing but political theater, as there is no real opposition in Washington, for international trade treaties such as the TPP, because many US Senators had already received large donations for their support of the deal.
While the US has been transfixed with the propaganda surrounding the Charleston shooting, the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), was designed to enable large-scale trade deals such as the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) to move ahead as planned.
