TPA Extension Disapproval Needed Now.

Let’s Do Away With the TPA!

TPA-Kings-Legislate

Here are 6 reasons why either the House or Senate should pass a TPA extension disapproval resolution (based on William F. Jasper’s article entitled, “7 Reasons Why Trade Promotion Authority/Fast Track Must Be Defeated,” published on TheNewAmerican.com, on June 5, 2015, when the current TPA was being considered by Congress):

  1. TPA is essential to passage of a very dangerous updated NAFTA, the forerunner to an EU-like North American Union (NAU), as well as to the potential passage of other sovereignty-killing “free trade” agreements like TPP, which as of April 12 President Trump is considering rejoining.
  2. TPA is an unconscionable abdication of constitutional responsibility by Congress.
  3. TPA not only hands Trump unconstitutional powers given to Obama, it potentially gives them to his successor as well.
  4. TPA is another giant step in the unconstitutional transfer of congressional authority to the president.
  5. TPA also challenges the Constitution by violating the requirement that treaties be ratified by a super-majority vote of two-thirds of the U.S. Senate.
  6. The TPA will speed the transfer of immense power to federal and international judges to eviscerate the Constitution; to strike down federal, state, and local laws; and to legislate from the bench
