President Obama has done the polite thing every US president who is a card carrying member of the Wall Street Democratic Establishment, like Hillary Clinton and Ron Wyden. He signed the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), even though it won’t be brought up in committee until after the November elections, when it will be too late for the aroused US public to do anything about it. The TPP is a scam that will redistribute trillions of dollars and massive political power from the 99 to the 1 percent.

But here’s the big question; can the president pre-sign the TPP since it won’t likely pass through the US house and senate (if it passes through) until President Obama has left office? Shouldn’t the new president sign or reject it? If a US president signs a treaty that doesn’t pass through congress, and another congress passes it fifty years later, is that president’s signature on the treaty still valid? If President Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to sign the TPP if is passes through congress, will he need to go to court over this issue since the Wall Street Establishment of both major political parties will insist Obama’s signature is valid?
Cowardly Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden (he’s up for reelection this year) won’t introduce the TPP into a senate committee until after the elections. Any thoughts out there on this issue?
One of my favorite quotes regarding this issue was made by Lenny Jazdzewski below;
“The Democratic Party (Democratic Establishment) is looking to align itself with the Citizens United decision rather than condemn it. It’s a political power play and an extremely dangerous one especially if we allow the Clintons back into the White House. They’re absorbed with the same corruption that has been synonymous with Republicans over the last thirty years. Bernie is our best bet to stop this!”
