The World Trade Organization (WTO) took yet another blow at our U.S. laws. Today, the WTO struck down Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) laws that essentially required labeling of pork and beef sold in the U.S. to inform consumers the country of which the animal was born, raised, and slaughtered. Why did the WTO strike this down? Because it was a barrier to trade for Mexico and Canada. Since when can Mexico and Canada decide what laws the U.S. can and cannot have?

Many are starting to believe that our Commander-In-Chief is scheming with paid corporate lobbyists to pass new “free trade” agreements that aren’t so much about trade as it is about setting up a new One World Global Government, with giant corporations in charge. These agreements are known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and Trade in Services Agreement (TISA). The agreement is between the U.S. and 11 other countries including third world countries like Vietnam and Brunei.
Just how many economy-killing “free trade” agreements is our so-called Commander-in-Chief going to sign America up for? It should be noted that “free trade” agreements in the past haven’t exactly played out to the benefit of the average American.
