Scott Walker Supports “Obamatrade”

ANOTHER “REPUBLICAN” SELLOUT …

|| By FITSNEWS ||  We had high hopes for the 2016 presidential candidacy of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker.

Unlike so many of the “Republican” presidential candidates (whose abysmal records have been repeatedly exposed), he was one of the few who had an opportunity to stake out a true pro-freedom, pro-free market vision for the United States.

Unfortunately Walker isn’t doing that.

Instead, he’s proving he’s just another warmongering “neoconservative” and crony capitalist.

This week, Walker published an opinion editorial in Real Clear Politics outlining his views on U.S.-China relations.  Like another status quo hack – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida – Walker is being reactionary, attempting to play the “me, too” card after GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has elevated this issue to the forefront of the national debate.

But there’s a critical difference between the Walker/ Rubio (a.k.a. “Republican” establishment) position being advanced on this issue and Trump’s view.  Both Rubio and Walker are using the China dust-up to advance a secretive, terribly anti-competitive, crony capitalist trade deal being pushed by U.S. president Barack Obama and “Republican” leaders in Congress.

Trump?  He was one of the first GOP candidates to come out blasting this deal (along with Carly Fiorina).

Anyway, here’s what Walker had to say about the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement …

We need a Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal that puts American workers first and levels the playing field. A deal that genuinely opens markets and ensures high standards for an area covering almost 40 percent of the world’s GDP has huge potential to benefit Americans.

Wait … “puts American workers first?”  Has “huge potential to benefit Americans?

Those statements are, quite simply, 100 percent bullsh*t.

“Obamatrade” is going to be a disaster for the U.S. economy (see HERE and HERE) and more specifically for the South Carolina economy (see HERE and HERE).  How come?  Because it’s not “free trade,” it’s rigged trade – the kind of insider-driven deal that subsidizes outsourcing of U.S. jobs to the benefit of a handful of corporations (well, and Malaysian slave traders).

Seriously: The only “Americans” who will benefit from TPP are the special interests who purchased its passage.

We expected a D.C. insider like Rubio – who cast the deciding vote for “Obamatrade” in the U.S. Senate – to support this crony capitalist crap, but we expected more from Walker.  A lot more.

Sadly, he’s just not delivering … which is probably one reason why the latest “First in the South” polling has seen him fall from frontrunner to an abysmal four percent.

Fits continues to lie about the TPP
It is easy to put pick apart a complex agreement if you don’t have to compare it to current trade policy. The TPP may not eliminate all so called “crony deals”, but it reduces them. That is the best that you can expect from an agreement involving 12 countries.

If you want to continue the existing “crony trade” in which the US pays more in tariffs than it collects; where patents, copyrights and trademarks of US companies are not protected; where US workers are hurt by counterfeit goods made in China and other places; then oppose TPP.

Some US tarriffs are so outdated, they don’t even give crony capitalist protection any more. Very few clothes are sewn in the US, so tariffs only serve as a tax on consumers. Pakistan is exempted from the tarriffs anyway, so instead of purchasing from the most efficient supplier we end up getting it from Pakistan.

TPP isn’t perfect, but it is better than what we have and if we don’t pass it other countries will exploit their trade advantages to our peril.

Thanks for setting the record straight. Will clearly thinks that he can spew his bullshit without being called on it as 99.5% of the morons who troll this site can’t spell TPP much less know what the hell it’s about. His insufferable, self-righteous, libertarian (when its suits his needs) crap is getting old.

For good reason, he is not catching on with the electorate. He may not realize it, but he won’t be relevant much longer.

So true.I don’t know who is more clueless, Fits or Boz. .

Will supports Trump so he going to try and destroy the other viable Republican candidates (particularly those that make their faith part of their politics). In my opinion that is why he posted that article on the Christian college professor today and tied him into Mike Huckabee.He added a hit piece on Walker today and has even turned on Rubio.

Hillary calls Republican’s ‘terrorists’ yesterday in front of a crowd you could fit into a phone booth and no article about that.

No, we get an article on a nobody former college professor that apparently had an affair with another adult.

Fits is really doing his boy Trump a disservice by apparently using this site to destroy Christians and take great joy in exposing their personal failings-many evangelicals are giving Trump a look despite his past positions on some issues.

Why would they if they read Fits NEWS?

When a Republican is president, it’s a lot more palatable.

It’s Obama who is the scourge, not the office of president. Get a TRUE AMERICAN in the White House, and he will govern like he loves this country, not a hater.

You’re just trying to take out ANY and ALL Republicans. That’s more disgusting than anything any GOP candidate has done. Screw you. We do not need, or can we afford, Hillary…

last week’s Marquette University poll revealed that 75% OF WISCONSIN REPUBLICANS NOW WOULD NOT VOTE FOR SCOTT WALKER. take it from the people who know scott walker best! despite all his claims, his REAL performance numbers tell the truth! it took a while for wisconsin republicans to wake up to the REAL scott walker – but now that he’s been in office for a while, walker couldn’t get elected as dog catcher in wisconsin. i suspect the REAL reason he’s running for president is he needs to get out of wisconsin before he’s tarred and feathered and run out of the state on a rail! his time in our governor’s office has proven even to people who supported him that he’s nothing more than a fast talking, lying, corrupt, incompetent nincompoop who’s driven our state’s long-term debt higher and faster than ANY governor in our state’s history. despite his claims of a “balanced budget” the truth is, his recent budget has a $2.2 BILLION shortfall. our state is ranked number one in the DECLINE of our middle class, dead last in job creation in the midwest, 48th in small business environment, wages in wisconsin have GONE DOWN 14% since he’s been governor, 71% of our once beautiful roads now need immediate replacement or repair and there’s no money to address them, our property values have plumetted, he’s gutted funding for our university and schools, for our dept of natural resources, and every penny of funding for our state parks trying to cover for the debt he’s created. six of his executive staff have been convicted of FELONIES ranging from pedophilia to stealing large sums of money from a veteran’s charity. the job creation agency he personally created and was chairman of the board on – WEDC – has “misplaced” $8 MILLION, has funneled over 60% of it’s grants and loans directly walker’s political supporters without going through any approval process – in one case alone, $500,000 was given to a walker donor who had just given walker $10,000 the day before – and dissolved the business shortly thereafter without repaying the loan. the board of WEDC recently FIRED walker as it’s chairman after not just one – but TWO – scathing audits revealed consistent and total mismanagement and a series of broken state laws. if you want a man who will drive your economy DEEP into long-term red ink that your great grandkids will still be repaying long after you’re dead, who was ranked by politifact as the country’s lyingest politician, who will use your hard-earned tax dollars like his own personal piggy bank to funnel YOUR money directly to HIS donors, who will gut the funding for your schools, and roads, and who “looks like a drunk in a silent movie who was just punched by mistake.”, go ahead, support him! but don’t be surprised when you finally discover that you can’t believe a word he says.

I knew there was a reason(s) that I just could not muster any excitement about Walker the way everyone else seemed to be doing. As I suspected, he is but one more, lukewarm, ass clown who will say or do anything to get elected, but once sworn in will forget most if not all of his campaign promises. He’s just another Bush, Rubio, Huckabee, Santorum, Graham, etc.
