GOP aids Obama’s stealth immigration, climate change power grab & UPDATE

Republicans foolishly poised to give Obama fast track on Trans Pacific Partnership, providing irreversible authority, since treaties supersede statutes under U.S. Constitution

This is huge,” Dick Morris tells America‘s Forum host J.D. Hayworth as he discusses Obama’s attempt to fast track Trans Pacific Partnership.*  (video under link)

“I hope that everybody listening takes action, call your senator about it.  If he‘s a Republican. he‘s voting wrong.  I don’t think the people understand that in this deal, which is a trade agreement among Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru and Chili, there is a provision for free flow of workers, just like in the European Union.

What that means is unrestricted immigration.  It means literally that Congress would not have the authority to restrict immigration, because a treaty supersedes a statute under our constitution.”

Morris continues, “Obama is going to try to circumvent the legislative process and use the treaty-making authority do stuff that Congress can’t repeal, and a future president can’t change. As he enters the seventh year of his presidency, that’s what he’s focused on.  Under the guise of a NAFTA-like trade agreement it provides for unrestricted immigration within these eleven countries, which means any Mexican can come here to the United States legally, stay here, be naturalized, become a citizen and vote — and Congress can’t do anything about it. The Constitution enumerates the powers of Congress. One of them is Immigration and Naturalization.  This supersedes that and it does so for all time. Because you can’t repeal a treaty unless the other signatories agree.’

“It also could become the way to get Climate Change in,” Morris warns.  “He’s taking the whole legislative agenda and putting it in a treaty and getting it ratified and then it becomes as good as a Constitutional Amendment.

In this case Obama is putting it in a treaty and asking congress to approve fast track authority.  The idea that with all the power this president has grabbed, the Republicans are about to give him fast track, which means he can do  any trade agreement he wants and ratification is almost automatic, and the Democrats are opposing this. It is entirely Republican votes that are pushing it and they just don’t understand what’s in the damn bill.”

“This is not amnesty,“ Morris tells Hayworth. “Amnesty is for people who are already here.”

 * Besides the United States there are 11 other countries involved in  the TPP: :Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

    This is stunning in its scope! We are hammering nails in our own coffins and relegating our children’s futures to the garbage heap of history.

    The Democrats are not onboard. This is Republican lunacy; Call them. It’s never been more important!

  2. Hometown Guy says:

    This video sounds an alarm as powerful as any we have heard. Thanks to Dick Morris for exposing the deception and for JD Hayworth (my former and best congressman) for giving him the platform. Now it’s up to us to call, call and call these supposed representatives. They sure as hell don’t represent our interests. The fact that a treaty supercedes our laws is something I was unaware of.

  3. Maggie says:

    We are the bigger fools for electing these traitors. Simply having an “R” after their names is not nearly good enough. How many times do we need to be conned before we wake up and find our country gone and our liberties vanished?

  4. American Patriot says:

    The American Apocalypse has arrived. Our so-called Reps and Senators are riding in as The Four Horsemen, forerunners of conquest and attendant apocalyptic strife. How we have reached this point in our comparatively short 239 year history is mind boggling. Our Founders, who fought so hard to give us so much, must be rolling in their graves at the thought that we have turned over our power to the enemies of this great nation.

    • Weary Of Lies says:

      Your words of frustration resonate from this corner also. My wife and I were longtime precinct committeemen who worked on behalf of congressional and other candidates over the years. We were so fed up after the McCain/McFlake/McGraham spectacle at the AZ GOP mandatory meeting in January, we have not returned to our district meetings and will not run again. Those who say we have ceded our power over to the Dems are wrong. The REPULICRATS are the ones who usurped it. Our further involvement is pointless when those who campaign as conservatives conduct themselves as liberals. We finally woke up to the hard truth that we have been wasting our time.

  5. Clair Van Steenwyk says:

    Senator McCain has been touting the Trade Deal as a National Defense Issue and needs to pass to prevent China from taking over the region, well China’s economy is not doing all that well either and if we’d limit trade with them would do what we need to do to slow them down. This is a bad deal and the Chamber of Commerce and others paying for it’s passage, send a message to all GOP Incumbents running in 2016 vote for it and against me and we’ll return the Favor when we vote against you in 16.
    God Bless You; Van

    • Army Of One says:

      Hearing that McCain is FOR anything makes me suspicious. He has done more to harm this country than most of his cohorts could ever dream of.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I don’t see what good it will do to contact McCain, Flake or your congressman. They’ve all ignored (if not laughed at) us regarding illegal immigration for years. And if they pretended to “care,” they voted against our wishes anyway. If they voted “for” our wishes, the votes were carefully manipulated so that they’d face no backlash, but we’d still lose. It’s rare anymore that things go our way (conservative taxpaying citizens).

    It’s all rigged against We The People. Since Obama became dictator, our country hasn’t had a chance. And the ‘loyal opposition?’
    There is none.

    • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

      I agree, contacting them is a waist of time, the only contact that will do any good is voting them out of office.

    • State Delegate says:

      I share your frustration, but I know for a fact that staffers keep running tabulations of which side of issues constituent calls represent. The way the politicians craft their lies are often reflective of the calls, emails and faxes. I agree with Dick Morris and JD Hayworth, a former member of comgress, both of whom should know that the calls actually are counted. I’ve called today for that very reason. What good does it do to stick your head in the sand or roll over and play dead? It costs you nothing to pick up the phone. It potentially costs us all plenty if we don’t.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        I’ve been doing that all my life. It used to matter. It hasn’t mattered in a long time now……it got really bad under George W. Bush. No one was more active than I in letting our representatives know how I felt. They’ve sold out and don’t give a darn what a Conservative thinks. Remember November of 2014? They promised that if they got the Senate, they’d do this and do that. Well, they stabbed us in the back. It’s worse than ever.

  7. Clair Van Steenwyk says:

    I agree it’s worse than ever and hoping as more discover they can’t believe those in office, that they’ll begin to find others to replace them from the ranks of their own groups. The only problem I see is once you find someone who’ll run you then have to support them by both volunteering and giving them the dollars to compete and that’s always been the problem.
