So many things going on in the World News these days. Yet again, it seems not enough are paying much attention to them.

158 fast track trade 940
Only five Republicans voted against handing over their responsibility on trade deals and anything else that can be hidden inside of trade deals to the power hungry illegitimate occupant of the White House. Only five voted against TPP and against signing an 18 month blank check to Hussein Obama and the full term of whoever succeeds him, be it a Democrat, Republican, tyrant or man of the people. Every other irresponsible, treasonous sellout Republican voted based upon talking points, having never read a bill that is so bad it’s classified and being kept locked away from the American people and the press until after it’s too late to do anything to stop it.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the statesman from Alabama, who led the charge against the treason of Mitch McConnell (R-KY), John Cornyn (R-TX), Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and their merry band of thieves, was joined by four other Republicans, though not all shared his convictions.
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) is a Democrat for all intents and purposes and as such voted with the majority of Democrats in opposition.
Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Lindsey Graham, all candidates for president of the United States, did themselves no favors with conservatives or with any Americans who are paying attention to what they just did. They abdicated their duty as representatives of the people to read the legislation they vote on and to scrutinize it rather than simply handing more power to the ever-expanding dictatorship operating out of the White House.

When fast-track authority is given to the President, once he submits the deal to Congress only an up-or-down vote may be held. Congress may not amend the bill nor can they filibuster the bill. The very purpose of fast-tracking is to ensure a deal can bypass parliamentary procedure.
We can almost be certain that the final version of the TPP will be very bad for America. However, with President Obama, Majority Leader McConnell, Speaker Boehner, and powerful lobbyists all supporting it, we cannot be certain that Congress would vote down the deal.
Who in their right mind would put the nation in such a precarious position? There is no upside with fast-tracking the TPP, but there is the very probable downside that it gets approved.
With all of this said, here is how each Senator voted on the TPA:
