  1. Libertarians for Trump says:

    Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn voted for Obama’s TPP bill- The TransPacific Partnership- which gives away America’s Sovereignty to the New World Order Globalists.

    Is Brat, A CATO Institute Libertarian and Free Trader, now supporting OBAMA”s planned destruction of our nation?

    Voters should ASK THAT QUESTION.

    FYI- Blacburn voted for Monsanto’s GMO Bill along with Brat to keep Americans from knowing what we are feeding our Children.

    Here is an extended quote from an Op-Ed piece she wrote for “The Tennessean” on June 11, 2015. Rep Blackburn claims to the state voters that

    “Many worry that the trade agreements are being negotiated in secret and that TPA will provide a “fast track” for the president to saddle America with a bad deal. In fact, TPA will give America more time to review any trade agreement the president negotiates. For 60 days after the negotiations are complete, every single American will have access to the text for review. In actuality, TPA creates a “slow track,” so we can pore over every detail of the document and decide if this is what is best for our nation, both today and in the future.”

    In fact time has substantiated that every single claim she makes in this piece is pure fantasy and wish fulfillment. The sole and only reason that PSA hasn’t been shoved down the American voter’s throats to date is because of the mini revolt against this set of international agreements by Obama’s own Democratic party which caught the administration almost completely by surprise. Marsha Blackburn represents the outsourcing of the American workforce and the influx of replacement foreign labor as fervently as any K Street based globalist. Blackburn as a “national conservative treasure” simply screams to the rational how debased the term conservatism has become in national politics. As for David Brat the “economics professor” turned political savior, we all might be served by taking a time out to judge the facts and actions from the blogging spam buildup or perhaps he is confused by exactly who he is linking his arms with though I doubt it.

    I am going to now respond to everybody about this issue.

    First, I thank Libertarians for Trump, Rick Adams, lawrence wood, Heritage Sentinel, Patriot Dad and Organic Farmer for coming by, commenting and most importantly reading the blog. (Thanks to Lab Tech to that important clarification on PSA v. TPA!)

    Two observations:
    1. I did not endorse Rep. Blackburn – Cong. Brat invited her and called her whatever she is called in the invitation.
    2. I also did not call her a constitutional conservative.

    I agree that TPA is wrong – I would not give any President that power (Even Reagan) and any putative President I admired such as Ron Paul would not ask for that authority. But let’s distinguish between Trade Promotion Authority and the TPP itself. If Blackburn is for TPP she is wrong. Some may have split the difference (not me) and voted for TPA but not TPP. Now I had a moment to speak with her yesterday and I elected to use that moment to tout my Laos act that I proposed at the blog and sent to my representative (Wittman) and to Cong. Brat.

    As to why Brat invited her – I do not know – ask him. She is a prominent Congressman who people might want to come see/hear and was on touted as a VP for Trump. She is also very pro-Trump, too and is from a neighboring state so the costs to bring her are not high.

    Since I have not heard otherwise, I assume she is pro-life, socially conservative, evangelical and otherwise a mainstream conservative.

    As for the GMO issue – I would think labeling is a great idea but let’s recall that this is a regulation of the food industry. If you make labeling required for food with GMOs they must be so labelled. I heard a passionate speech for disclosure of GMOs in food; I also understand science says there is nothing wrong – no difference – between GMO “tainted” food and non-GMO food.

    So you are asking businesses to be required to label food based on bad science. I am not even sure this is wise policy let along good constitutional conservatism. If there is no health and safety issue here with GMO included food then I do not favor mandatory labeling – the market can handle it if there is a need for such labeling. And if you voluntarily label a food item – it must be truthful.

    I am not a zealot on this issue. I am open to a contrary viewpoint, too.

    Thanks again for your reading what might be the leading conservative blog in the Commonwealth!


    • lawrence wood says:

      Excuse my presumptuous Mr. Sanders but frankly I don’t believe you understand what is going on here with this international trade agreement vote and why this vote in particular was so critical. Approval of the bipartisan trade legislation through both Houses of Congress last July included a re-authorization of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), this “fast-track” authority affords expedited consideration of international trade legislation through Congress and PRECLUDES any amendments.

      The enactment of TPA enabled the Obama Administration to successfully conclude negotiations on TPP. NO fast tracked trade legislation has every failed to be enacted by Congress, EVER. Disagreements on the set of trade policies with key Democratic and Republican leadership will be worked out behind “closed” doors in Congress via side letters (unseen by the voting public), which are common to trade agreements and are used to clarify specific term issues (e.g. think in regards of how the Iran deal was managed by the Obama administration). Some members of Congress have even implied they would be willing to agree on informal commitments from the Administration to address issues!

      Obama and trade deal supporters have signaled that the earliest the deal could be considered for final passage is toward the end of the year during the “lame duck” session of Congress in November and they are pushing for that vote. Beginning to see the drift here and why the initial TPA vote was and may have been the key to derailing this train.

      Rep. Brat can invite whom ever he cares to a promotional event but if Rep. Blackburn is considered a “national conservative treasure”, which I believe were your words, I think it’s clear why so may voters across the nation are turning their backs on this modern interpretation of what conservatism appears to represent. She may be a Trump supporter but I can assure you that Trump has not since day one of his campaign supported this legislation as currently composed. As for Rep. Brat, Congressional associations and appearances aren’t monthly faculty meetings, in Congress when you embrace a colleague you embrace their policy positions as well and her’s on this issue have been well known and well publicized for some time now.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
