If you want to know how the “so called” Free Trade exponents think about exports, just analyze the impact and actual beneficiaries of the US House passes bill to lift 40-year ban on oil exports.
“The crude export restrictions were introduced in the US in 1975 in the middle of the energy crisis. They followed OPEC’s oil embargo of the US and other countries backing Israel during the Arab–Israeli war of 1973. In the face of embargo-related high oil prices, Washington eased the limits on oil imports and ordered an export ban.”
Why do some U.S. politicians love to consort with foreigners who want the United States to fight their wars for them? Franklin Roosevelt and his clique palled around with the British in the years before Pearl Harbor, allowing free reign to their espionage and propaganda activities in the United States and working with them to get America into the UK’s war with Germany by using any unconstitutional tool that seemed to have promise.
The presidents Bush loved to relax, banter, and holiday with Saudi aristocrats, fought two wars partly for them against Iraq — how the Saudi princes must laugh over their ability to get U.S. Marines and soldiers to die for them — and, with Clinton, Obama, and all other postwar presidents, ignored or, in the case of the 9/11 report, covered up Saudi responsibility for nurturing the Islamist enemy that now is defeating the U.S. and its allies.
That neither Roosevelt and his senior lieutenants nor the Bushes and theirs were impeached for such conduct is a shame because such a clearly needed constitutional action would have been a most useful warning to those who are now starring in the republic’s longest running season of flamboyantly anti-American behavior, this one acted out by a cast made up of the country’s bipartisan governing elite, Jewish-Americans and their organizations, and Israel.
There is a simple reason why the Congress is held is such ill repute. Leadership in both parties are total agents for the Plutocrats that have systematically destroyed our economy with their globalist corporatist model that results in national impoverishment. The only startling pattern to this bipartisan betrayal is that the public continues to accept their excruciating fraud with only a whimper of discontent. BATR has covered the TPP Fast Track issue intensively. The most consistent observation is that the public, in this sinking economy, has ignored the impact that will accelerate, as the leaks from this secretive agreement become known.
