The Newsletter that I received yesterday from my U.S. Representative in the House
of Representatives shows that she has not done her research on a very important
She is advocating a secret White House program that has the potential for
destroying our middle class and negatively impacting accessibility to important
medications as well as many other things having seriously negative potential impacts
on all American citizens.
I am talking about her advocating for a deal with Japan using the auspices of the
Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP is a secret pact between a group of
countries (12) under which they intend to eliminate tariffs on transactions
between member countries, yet, subject non-member countries to existing
tariffs and excises.
The charters drafted by the countries are secret as is the content and intent
of the TPP. Following the meeting between President Obama, the President
of Mexico and the Prime Minister of Canada, in Mexico, within the past couple
of months included talk about advancing the plans for a North American Union
(NAU). A NAU would be quite like the European Union (EU) and would involve
the merging of the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico as one country with common
laws, currency and government. In an essence, the U.S.A. would disappear.
Since that meeting there have been articles stating that Obama has been
considering giving up on the NAU and merging the U.S.A. with the members
of the TPP creating a Pacific Rim Union. The intent is to benefit the rich and
powerful members at the expense of everyone else.
Here is what Rep. VIcky Hartzler said in her newsletter:
On another matter, President Obama met Japanese Prime Minister Abe
this week to talk trade, and I was honored to lead dozens of my House
colleagues in urging the Obama Administration to push Japan to eliminate
tariff and non-tariff trade barriers for U.S. agricultural products as part
of the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade talks.
A letter to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack expresses concern with Japan’s demand for special
treatment for its agricultural sector. The fact is that Japan has not made a
comprehensive offer on market access for agricultural goods and we are
encouraging the Administration to continue the efforts that have already
been attempted, pointing out that giving in to Japan’s demands would be
inconsistent with U.S. requests in previous trade deals.
“We commend previous efforts to expand market access with Japan,
including completion of a revised export for certain agricultural products last
year,” states the letter. “We now seek assurances from you that the U.S.
will not close TPP negotiations with Japan’s participation unless Japan has
agreed to eliminate tariff and non-tariff trade barriers to agriculture.”
As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I am committed to
continuing to work toward improved access to foreign markets for U.S.
That statement shows she is more interested in scoring points with
agricultural constituents that being absolutely sure of what she is
advocating. In fact, her entire newsletter talked primarily about what she
is doing for her district constituents of impact. Little or no discussion
was had on the most important topics that should have been subjects
in her newsletter. The tone of her newsletter was such that no-one
would know that our country is being destroyed from within at an ever
increasing pace by the rogue Administration and establishment members
of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, Republican and
Democratic. WE MUST NOT REELECT ANY OF THEM!
There must be a change made to benefit the United States. There must
be no more business as usual by anyone that is supposedly honoring their
oaths of office by preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution
against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. The above comments by
Rep. Hartzler clearly show that the Constitution and preservation of our
Republic are not at the top of Rep. Hartzler’s priority list. She has
apparently fallen to the temptations of public office and is becoming
progressive in thoughts of perpetuation of her “career” making that more
important than always, and without reservation, honoring her oath of
