Citing corruption, “backroom deal-making,” and leaks that show the Obama administration is violating its assurances not to include immigration in its trade agreements, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas; shown on left) reversed his earlier support for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and voted Tuesday against the cloture measure to end debate on Fast Track authority for the president. Even with Cruz’s defection, however, President Obama and his Republican allies in the Senate succeeded in getting the 60-vote super-majority they needed to cut off debate. The 60-37 vote sets up a vote on TPA itself, which is scheduled for Wednesday. If it passes then, it will go to President Obama’s desk to be signed into law. Although most commentators are viewing TPA passage now as a done deal, it is still possible that it could be derailed again, as recent history has shown the battles over these pseudo-“free trade” pacts are full of surprises.

In an op-ed published on Brietbart.com today, Senator Cruz explained why he has switched from pro to anti on TPA. “The American people do not trust President Obama. And they do not trust Republican leadership in Congress,” Cruz wrote.

“And the reason is simple: for far too long, politicians in Washington have not told the truth.”

  1. I didn’t go to the Breitbart link because that site slows down my computer a whole bunch, so I avoid it. However, I get the idea from the excerpt. Since i distrust all of them, including Cruz (who is pretty much an amnesty guy on illegals), I wonder how much of his change of heart is political theater. Jeff Sessions of Alabama may be the only politician in DC that i trust but even him I can’t be sure about. He’s opposed to amnesty, so that makes him OK in my book.

    This TPP thing I haven’t kept up with, but nothing that obama comes up with is good. In fact, it’s going to be evil.

    Obama should go down in history with a nickname. I suggest Obama the Destroyer.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
