Not so benign business group behind deceptive ads

Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) and Jeff the Flake have been longtime supporters of trade pacts that harm American workers

The ads are showing up on television with regularity. They begin by saying the economy is down, Americans are out of work and the tax system is “broken.” That word piqued our interest since it is routinely used by those on the left or the amnesty promoting establishment elite — typified by members of the Chambers of Commerce — illegal alien profiteers, who claim our immigration system is “broken.”

Conveniently ignored is the fact that the Dow has repeatedly broken all time record highs since the beginning of the year and unemployment is down, coinciding with President Trump taking office.

Sure enough, the same word is used by a group calling itself the Business Roundtable,  purchaser of the ads.  Its immigration page after cutting through the baloney —serves as a beacon illuminating its barely concealed agenda.

 It also contends the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will “open markets for U.S. exports and support U.S. growth and jobs.” This unsavory deal was made by Barack Obama. President Donald Trump withdrew from it within days of his inaugural. His move was no surprise since he spoke of his intentions as he campaigned, saying the suspect deal would send jobs overseas and benefit special interests rather than American workers. Voters listened and enthusiastically supported the business titan turned presidential candidate.

The Business Roundtable, using Obama double talk, calls the TPP “a modern trade agreement for a modern economy that removes foreign tariffs (taxes) and other trade barriers and sets strong and enforceable rules for free and fair trade, which will make American companies, workers and farmers more competitive in the international market.”

Believe that, and we’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin’s fact-filled commentary on the topic,Why America hates the GOP-Obamatrade deal,” written two years ago was right on target then and remains so today.

It doesn’t take a seer to realize the Business Roundtable is a liberal farce. On Tuesday, it sent this letter extolling the virtues of NAFTA to U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer; Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross; Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn. Pay particular attention to the list of 108 signers.

Regardless of their shallow words, the business signers want nothing more than to lead American workers off the economic cliff as they push for massive increases in cheap foreign labor, including imported tech workers from India and China over highly educated, highly skilled American workers who are forced to train their replacements.

Malkin concludes her enlightening commentary with this bold question, “What part of “Stop selling out America!” does D.C. not understand?

But, we’ve saved the best for the lastThe Guardian reveals John McCain received $51,700 in the first quarter of 2015 from business interests desiring the TPP be fast-tracked. He later expressed disappointment when President Trump withdrew from the pact. And Obama’s willing toady Jeff Flake? Despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it, he said Congress is going to have to suck it up and ratify the agreement because “it simply must be done,” even in the face of hostile opposition to trade along the campaign trail.

Is this the guy you’d send back to the senate in 2018?

    I’ve seen the ads and wondered about them, but didn’t look for the small type sponsors or bother to look them up. Glad to see that SRAZ wasn’t glued to a recliner!! Appreciated reading this and and have already sent it out to friends and my Dimocrat brother-in-law, who works in the building trades. This should interest him, but he’d never admit it.

  2. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Just another reason to be grateful that Donald Trump won the presidential election? He can’t be bought like John McCain and Jeff Flake.

  3. Ellsworth says:

    Jeff Flake is already being chastised for his flagrant anti-Republican rhetoric. He characterizes himself as a conservative when elections roll around , but he’s anything but. Even my politically conservative LDS friends are fed up with his grandstanding and flagrant swipes at the president, who most of them voted for,

    This is nothing more than another sneak attack on American values and our own citizen work force. These “business round table” con men care about nothing and no one other then themselves and their vested interests, which is to make more money by importing cheap labor or sending our jobs off shore. It doesn’t surprise me for a minute that John McAwful would take tens of thousands of dollars from them for his vote in their favor. I wonder about Jeff The Flake. He was so close to Barack Obama, it verged on suspicious. The TPP was promoted by Obama.

    I read that Flake’s first phone call after the ballpark shooting was to Obama, not even his own wife.

    Republican Senator says that ASS’s brain tumor and the fact that the healthcare vote took place at 1:30 a.m. may account for outcome of the vote.


    The medically ill and the infirm are determining the rules for the rest of US.

    Still unfit for duty.

    Meanwhile, the ASS was on KTAR radio bashing Trump yesterday.
    His lips weren’t moving, but his cheeks were.

    Arizona doesn’t have crazy Democrat senators like CA (Dianne Feinstein/Kamala Harris) or VT (Patrick Leahy/Bernie Sanders) – wait – I think we do. We have two senators who run across the aisle to help Democrats every chance they get. Jeff Flake has a personal relationship with the most far Left, America-hating president we’ve had, Barack Hussein Obama. He loves the anti-American-worker trade pacts, open borders, Cuba and Iran. McCain’s friends are Democrats – Lieberman, Kennedy, The Keating 5, Russ Feingold, the Gang of 8 -[Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez, Chuck Schumer, Michael Bennet (R-CO), along with Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake]. They’re both in the headlines just about every day trashing President Trump and conservatives. They’re both spiraling out of control. Time for new representation.

    Robert Mercer, the millionaire behind Breitbart News, is donating $300,000 to Kelli Ward’s political PAC.

    • Army Of One says:

      I just heard that on KFYI News!! I hope that will encourage the rest of us to give what we can. Every $25, $50 or $199 helps. It shows we;’re willing to put some “skin in the race” and will rally around Dr. Kelli Ward. Imagine finally having a US Senator who makes us proud!
