Despite Shutdown, President Pushes Hard to Finish TPP

The “shutdown” may have blocked veterans from trying to visit memorials, but it hasn’t blocked President Obama from trying to surrender U.S. sovereignty to a body of globalist bureaucrats.

Although President Obama claims the shutdown kept him from making his scheduled trip to Asia, his surrogates are pushing ahead with negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), hoping to seal the deal before the end of the year.

Secretary of State John Kerry and U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Michael Froman are in Bali on behalf of the stay-cationing Barack Obama.

"I do want to make clear none of what is happening in Washington diminishes by one iota our commitment to our partners in Asia, including our efforts to promote trade and investment throughout the region," Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday from Bali.

In other words, the Obama administration is content to let the “shutdown” leave the country open to terrorist attack, but they won’t let anything keep the U.S. from tying the financial well-being of the United States to Viet Nam and Malaysia.
