International Trade Agreements: Good or Bad??
Gary Larsen, a potato and asparagus farmer from the state of Washinton (and a cast member on the documentary, "Borderland") will be joining Dan Sheridan and myself to talk about these international trade agreements and how they are affecting him and his farming business.
According to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) webiste:
"American trade policy works toward opening markets throughout the world to create new opportunities and higher living standards for families, farmers, manufacturers, workers, consumers, and businesses. The United States is party to numerous trade agreements with other countries, and is participating in negotiations for new trade agreements with a number of countries and regions of the world."
From all the evidence that you have seen, how well has that worked out for us. And from all the evidence that I (Randy) have seen, it hasn't worked out so well for other countries either.
Mexico suing the U.S under NAFTA and CAFTA, barriers to trade because their trucks are not allowed on U.S highways.
Dave and Ruthie will discuss Obama's Mexico trip and see if the UNBELIEVABLE $30 'B' Billion dollars that Mexico is suing the US for ... because their trucks are not on our roadways and share what if anything shook out or was resolved.
We will discuss Reid asking Obama for MORE EXEC order unconstitutional nonsense in stopping deportations.
And if there are any updates to the fatal shooting of an illegal alien rock thrower by a border agent.
The effort to ram through the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) has stalled in the House, where as of this writing it has not gained a single Democratic sponsor. This is a shock to a corporate-dominated leadership who would have seen it sail through a Senate dominated by millionaires who never met a free trade agreement their puppet masters didn't salivate over.
Fast track appears to be dead in the water, but to really makes sure this blood-sucking bill is laid to rest permanently, we need to drag it into the light. The corporate lawyers who are negotiating it have not been forced to make its provisions public precisely because they know it would make plain their plans for corporate comination of the planet.
David Delk, national co-chair of Alliance for Democracy, will walk us through an outline of what the bill would do if passed and how it would undermine national sovereignty to the point where world governments would be literallu under the control of transnational corporations with no concern for Americans or citizens of any nation.
This show was rebroadcast on February 1 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.

MoveOn Petition to Stop FastTrack TPP
On June 18 Take Back America for the People internet radio hosted Elizabeth Swager, Assistant Director of Oregon Fair Trade, part of a nationwide group of organizations working to educate the public on why we must fight free trade policies and how to do it. We will be talking about the costs of free trade policies, focusing on the Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement.
The costs of "free" trade range from loss of jobs shipped to cheap labor markets to weakening worker protection and environmental laws around the world to undermining the national sovereignty of the US and other nations whose governments make them signatories to the agreements.
TPFTA is being in negotiated in secret by corporate interests with nations around the world. These talks are so secret that Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), chair of the Senate Trade subcommittee has been refused access to negotiation documents.
These are issues that should alarm all Americans regardless of political philosophy. Get the facts and learn how you can help fight corporate control of the US government by multinational corporations whose power is fast making the idea of nations irrelevant.
This show will be rebroadcast on Saturday, June 23 at 10 AM CST on the Star Com Radio network.

Bruce Olsen will be discussing the Truth about....... - Property Taxes - Securities Fraud - Land Patents - Fiduciary Duties - If we have time...We will talk about the character in the White House. The Federal Reserve has found it self between a rock and a hard place. Its put itself in a box and the lids been nailed down. No matter which way they turn , its wrong. Printing more paper, nope , that didn’t work. Lowering the rates , nope that didn’t work. What should they do, but wont. That’s simple. They should go out to the big banks and claw back billions if not trillions of dollars that over the past five years they shoved down the bankers throats. Re encourage small family owned Community oriented banks. Terminate all bank charters across state lines. Raise the window rate , to 21/2 to 3 percent and then back away. Let the market take over. In other words , get out-of-the-way. Then tell who ever is in the White House , to stop calling , lose the number. Maybe even move the fed to Dallas. And one more thing, Congress must repeal the Nafta ,Cafta, Gatt, treaties. They’ve done nothing for the middle class of Americans.

On October 1 we discussed how to build a steady-state economy to replace the tattered globalized one. Our guest was Rob Dietz, Executive Director of the Center for the Advancement of a Steady-State Economy (CASSE). More information on the topic can be found on the CASSE website: http://steadystate.org/
This was a great introduction to a cause that we can work on at the local level at the same time we promote it on a global level. The only way to make sure that our children live in a sustainable world is to opt out of the globalized economy that is fueled by fossil oils for the profit of the international corporate terrorists who manufacture war for profit to seize the natural resources of other nations.
From China to Russia to the global network of plutocrats who control the US and other governments, the effort to impose a permanent fascist New World Order is advancing more rapidly than we can fight it unless we work together in our communities, nations and the world to create a united international front against fascism and war.

Special interview with Peter Boyce, Constitution Party candidate for New Jersey's second congressional district.
Why is Peter running for Congress:
“Our Republic is facing a crisis on every front and these fronts are converging. If decisions being made in Washington, contrary to America’s best interests, were from stupidity, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor. They do not. Their consistency is not the hallmark of stupidity, but rather of a socialist agenda. Entangling trade agreements (NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, etc.) and un-constitutional regulations are destroying American jobs. We are borrowing money to give away to foreign banks. Future generations of Americans are collateral for debt to the bloodiest regime in history, Communist China. Grandma is being frisked at the airport, her nail clippers taken away, because she may be a terrorist, while millions of unknowns violate our borders and ports with impunity. Our soldiers are deployed in over 130 nations with no declarations of war as required by the Constitution; securing the borders of foreign nations while our own States are the victims of an invasion. I am running because one day I will have to stand before God and give an account of what I did with my life to oppose their evil agenda. ‘To remain silent in the face of evil makes cowards of men.”~Edmund Burke
