Paul-Ryan-Reuters-640x433In the wake of revelations that technically a vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would be a vote to grant the executive branch massively-expanded immigration powers, the Washington establishment cooked up an elaborate ruse to try to save the flailing Obamatrade bill.

This comes as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) re-emerges as a central figure pushing Obamatrade. His polling numbers in early states remain stagnant and Obamatrade opponents like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Dr. Ben Carson, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum are gaining traction on the 2016 trail.

Earlier on Wednesday, leading up to the House Rules Committee hearing where chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) is teaming up with House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Breitbart News exposed the expansive immigration provisions inside the Obamatrade package. Specifically, secret Obamatrade documents leaked to Wikileaks show that there are provisions contained within draft Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) text that would massively expand President Obama’s immigration authority when it comes to immigration matters.

    Thanks Breitbart…excellent information…food for thought as well. I’m unpleasantly surprised that Cruz is supporting TPA.

    Congress, do not give skunk Obama trade authority. Hussein will spray you his cologne that will take your breath away!

    I AM SICK OF THIS PHONY DUALITY…saying one thing yet doing the opposite. TED CRUZ voted this way too…..but Rand Paul did
    not. Are you paying attention? If you like Ted for president you are
    promoting an ILLUSION….and supporting ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

    I despise this little weasel and can’t understand how ANYBODY could vote for Romney / Ryan ticket……Ryan is an OBAMA ENABLER on immigration—this trade agreement gives Obama a free hand to do what he wants with immigration WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL This allows him to bypass congress and gives Obama the authority no president should have.

    How many times can we sit back and let this happen? WISE UP—RINOS WILL STAB YOU IN THE BACK….ALL OF THEM. If you can’t recognize them then just ask me- I’ll tell you the truth. I can spot them a mile away just like I pegged Ryan & Romney.

    We can’t keep making these mistakes.

    You wouldn’t have gotten the lesser evil—-you would have gotten the SAME EVIL
    Nobody believed me at the time, but now you see his true colors. Here is the PROOF…..UNDENIABLE.

    So the fantasy that things would have been ANY different in a Romney presidency needs to die….wake up to reality.

    or you need to redefine the word CONSERVATIVE…..or just come out of the closet and be a full fledged LIBERAL. OWN IT.

    I used to like Ryan, but now it looks like he’s totally sold out to the Kenyan in the White Who is following the directives of his Iranian handler Valery Jarrett!

    Obama’s already given us massive immigration problems and run up the national debt to the roof, but total immigration authority for him is out of the question. I don’t care what else the bill says.
