The TPA isn’t just a ‘Fast Track’ bill – it is a bill like all others and it includes a plethora of items that, largely, have nothing to do with the premise of the legislation. One aspect of the TPA that no one is mentioning has to do with its ties to Israel and how the US is attempting to force the world to treat Israel with respect, even if it doesn’t deserve respect. But before we get into all of that, I think it’s important to give context to the relationship between Israel and the United States Government.
Cynthia McKinney served as a House of Representatives member from the state of Georgia in 1992 until 2002 when she was defeated in the Democratic primary under suspicious circumstances. She was then reelected in 2004 but lost reelection in. Her time in politics has made an impression, but her time out of office might have made an even bigger impression.
In an interview with Press TV, she states that “Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign … that had Jerusalem as the capital city.” She also states that “You [Congress] make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that.”
According to Cynthia, if a candidate doesn’t sign the pledge, “then you do not get money to run your campaign.” According to her, AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is a heavy-hitter when it comes to campaign contribution and has the ability to blacklist members of Congress from large donation pools. Essentially, her comments mean that every member of Congress is asked to sign a pledge of allegiance to the nation of Israel.
This is important to know as context, because the TPA also has some very strong wording when it comes to Israel. Here’s a quote from the bill itself:
(20) COMMERCIAL PARTNERSHIPS.—
(A) IN GENERAL.—With respect to an agreement that is proposed to be entered into with the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership countries and to which section 103(b) will apply, the principal negotiating objectives of the United States regarding commercial partnerships are the following:
(i) To discourage actions by potential trading partners that directly or indirectly prejudice or otherwise discourage commercial activity solely between the United States and Israel.
(ii) To discourage politically motivated actions to boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel and to seek the elimination of politically motivated nontariff barriers on Israeli goods, services, or other commerce imposed on the State of Israel.
(iii) To seek the elimination of state-sponsored unsanctioned foreign boycotts against Israel or compliance with the Arab League Boycott of Israel by prospective trading partners.
(B) DEFINITION.—In this paragraph, the term “actions to boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel” means actions by states, non-member states of the United Nations, international organizations, or affiliated agencies of international organizations that are politically motivated and are intended to penalize or otherwise limit commercial relations specifically with Israel or persons doing business in Israel or in Israeli-controlled territories.”
While this might not be the biggest ‘breaking news’ story of the century, and might not even be detrimental to our nation, at least in terms of trade negotiation, I still feel this is an important piece of information because it speaks to the conspiracies that Israel runs everything in the US.
There are countless articles that talk about Jews owning the banking systems around the globe and how Jews run Hollywood and that sort of thing. I will not claim that these conspiracies are true, but when our government officials are pledging allegiance to another nation and forcing other nations to ‘take care of’ that other nation, it sure gives those conspiracy theories merit.
We must not forget that the TPA is just another bill that has many items inside of it that have nothing to do with the bill itself. We must also be aware of the ties our government officials have to the nation of Israel, especially since they have pledged allegiance to Israel, according to Cynthia McKinney. Tie that in with the knowledge that our negotiations with other nations have the requirement that other nations must not do anything harmful to the nation of Israel and it is clear there is a lot more to the Israeli-US relationship than one might suspect. Maybe the conspiracy theories are all true. What do you think?
