Two decades ago, Ralph Nader wrote to one hundred American companies asking them to pledge allegiance to the United States before every stockholder meeting, since all of them accepted federal government subsidies and tax breaks. Only one company responded favorably. All others dismissed or jeered at his request.
Business interests see themselves as transnationalist. They have no allegiance to the United States. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce exemplifies this ideology. They have a history of siding with our enemies. Some would say they’re in league with countries that wish to do us harm. An Iranian news agency reported the Chamber and several other business groups were secretly conspiring to undermine U.S. policy by torpedoing economic sanctions. The U.S. Chamber denied these allegations of course. However, the end result is working out in their favor.
We must ask ourselves, why is it that republican senators would pass a law that would circumvent the treaty processes in the U.S. Constitution? Who in their right mind would allow Barack Obama a free hand in negotiating with our enemies by giving him the authority to veto the Senate’s rejection of his so-called “executive agreement” with Iran? We don’t have to look any farther than the U.S Chamber of Commerce.
We can also surmise that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is behind Barack Obama’s reestablishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba, and eventual lifting of the trade embargo . Here is an excerpt from one of their press releases:
Of course, we’re expected to believe Cuba will unleash their entrepreneurial spirit with this wave of U.S. commerce when in reality only the Castro regime will profit off of this infusion of cash. We can also expect the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to pick the pockets of taxpayers to fund their dictatorial ventures.
