The danger of international trade agreements by leftists

The speech by Senator Sessions is the subject of this essay, however I want to remind you that international trade agreements have clauses in them that create legal obligations not anticipated by the citizenry of America.

For example many agreements allow for regulatory obligations that are not subject to review and approval by our Congress.

As Lawrence Kogan has said here and elsewhere, international trade agreements circumvent the sovereign authority of the USA on things like using the precautionary principle (a junk science concept born of fanatic nannyism) in regulatory affairs. That happens with a stroke of a pen, new legal obligations secreted in the text of the trade agreement.

Globalist super nationalist world government nonsense rides in in the dark of night on the black horse of trade agreements.

Europe is a museum/mortuary and has learned from the French to avoid risk

Europe is running scared–scared of risk, scared of the future, ashamed of its past–but full of hubris about its ability to create an elite of mandarins that can managed everything and prevent harm.

They live and breathe the precautionary principle and hate the risk taking that is required for success as a country or society.
