Sessions Warns TPA Would Create ‘Pacific Union’ Akin to European Union

In a joint appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) warned against the passage of the so-called Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) currently being considered by the Congress.
Sessions argued it was more than just a framework for a process for the president of the United States to use in negotiating trade agreements, but instead was creating an economic union with wide-ranging powers.
“I’ve been there three times and I can tell you it is far more than a trade agreement,” he said. “It is a creating of an economic union. The congressional resource said it is a wide-ranging political and economic partnership that is created where the Sultan of Brunei gets one vote. The president of the United States gets one vote. Twelve countries – they have the ability to add other treaties and pass them. They have the ability to deal with climate issues, wage issues and environmental issues. There’s just no doubt about that.”
The junior Alabama senator went on to explain that he felt it was being kept secret because if the public were aware of this union, which he likened to the European Union, it would be stopped dead in its tracks.

Any vote for any SECRET law is un-American and anti-Aamerican and is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The democrats have already passed SECRET legislation, the "affordable care act", but if a law is passed in secret by BOTH PARTIES, it signals that we live in a totalitarian dictatorship which is the enemy of every red-blooded American, and it is time to fight rather than vote.

Its well past time to take the Founder's Republic back !!! The John Birch Society, has been warning us citizens since 1948.But no one listened, nor cared. Now the middle class ,blue collar worker is a dying breed in the U.S.A. When is enough ,enough ? The District of Criminals ,is the problem. Their strangle hold on us citizen's is unrelenting... Either way they mean to turn us into vassals and slaves. Like the rulers in Old Europe did to our ancestor's...Who had the audacity, and balls ,to flee to the New World...Throw of the yoke of their oppressors. To create the greatest Republic in the world... "Its time to take a stand"... As usual my Representatives from Ct ,sold us out again, for their Collectivist and Marxist beliefs. Behind Enemy Lines. In Unconstitutional, collectivist, Ct. We will not comply ,nor stand down. AAA/O.11B20.
