Beck finally discusses TPP but not as fundamental transformation it would be

Home Disclaimer Contents For Glenn Beck Share This URL
Glenn Beck finally had a guest on his show today to discuss the unconstitutional Trade Promotion Authority, the fast-track legislation that would make passing of Obamatrade much easier. However, he still has no clue how Obamatrade would fundamentally transform the United States from a somewhat democratic order into a state governed by corporate-crafted rules.

His guest was Rep. Dave Brat who unseated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014. Via Glenn Beck's website, listen to Brat, Beck and the other two, clueless stooges discuss the TPA:

"So I just don’t know who to believe." Clearly Beck has no idea what's in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an ignorance that marks his rise to fame. He can't distinguish between genuine conservatives, who support the Constitution, and corporatists who support the international, corporate coup des lois that largely defines the TPP. Five days before he won the election in 2008, then Senator Obama promised he would "fundamentally transform" the United States, something that has had Beck extremely concerned throughout the term of Obama's administration. Beck is not informed or educated enough to understand the difference between a conservative, like Brat, and a corporate tool like Senator Ted tea-party-in-name-only Cruz.

On the same radio program today, Beck fretted about Obama's definition of "rugged individualism." Obama recently stated, "The rugged individualism that defines America has always been bound by a shared set of values. That we're in this together." THAT, Beck worried, was going to fundamentally transform America. Setting aside the fact that nationalism and rugged individualism are not mutually exclusive, Obama's words will have no impact on the future of the United States. Obamatrade, on the other hand, genuinely will transform the U.S. into a fascistic, corporate order. It is treason. Just when Beck's vitriolic dissent is needed, he's confused. Most genuine conservatives understand what's at stake with the vote on fast track authority tomorrow. Glenn Beck? He... 

triumphs in ignorance.
