Economics-Jobs-Labor-0666ALL of #BushTrade/#ObamaTrade/TPP – Trans-Pacific Partnership was written in secret by the lawyers and lobbyists, the boards and CEO’s of 600 transnational corporations. TPP is described as:
A.) a multinational corporate coup d’état overturning citizen rights and laws on all governmental levels;
<>
B.) corporate (front group) colonization combined with sovereignty surrender to Forbes 400 International Kings, the top 1/10th of 1%;
<>
C.) N.A.F.T.A. (North American Free Trade Agreement) on steroids;
D.) a national sovereignty and constitution overturning piece of Forbes 400 King’s garbage;
<>
E.) the “New World Order” benefitting just Forbes 400 Kings, who already own half of all the wealth; and
<>
F.) a corporate cultural limbo contest to determine which partner countries can survive:
1.) unfettered capitalist exploitation;
2.) resource exhaustion;
3). environmental devastation; and
4.) pollution …while citizens work for pennies an hour in direct wage competition with (population explosion saddled) totalitarian-ruled nations.
><>
><> (Click the links below)
><>
Once TPP and TTIP are completed “multinational corporations” will have “no need” to buy:
a.) Local, state, and national politicians;
b.) US judges, and state and federal supreme court justices;
c.) US presidents;
d.) State governors;
e.) US and international Universities and Churches (w/endowments);

f.) dolt-whispering-snake talkers (to tell Americans, who don’t care to think or reason because they’ve been taught to blind believe in the system, authoritarians or billionaires, what is good for them);
g.) right wing stochastic terrorist (Forbes 400 King funded talk hosts to keep things stirred up with Devil-Hate-Fear-N-Labeling …that leads to gun violence against demonized groups of fellow Americans and foreign nationals, or beating the drums of another profit-charter war).
><>
><>
><>
CHARACTERISTICS of TPP (& TTIP) TRADE DEALS
01.) TPP is a top secret trade agreement which goes “far beyond” trade;
<>
02.) It is another free-trade US treasury raid …just like N.A.F.T.A., C.A.F.T.A., Most Favored Nation Trade Status with China, and the recent Columbian and South Korean Free-Trade Agreements, etc;
<>
03.) TPP essentially overturns all conflicting US laws/ordinances (city, county, state and federal), lest their enforcement draw penalties from a corporate tribunal run by the CEO’s of multinational corporations who wrote the TPP trade and sovereignty swap in secret for seven years;
<>
04.) As such, TPP overturns the US Constitution, as have other trade laws;
<>
05.) In 06/12, there were 26 chapters in TPP with only 2 on “actual” trade;
<>
06.) It’s 24 Chapters (06/12) overturn food safety, foreign investment, aesthetic, land-use, environmental and zoning limits on corporate exploitation of resources and workers;
<>
07.) TPP subjects offending “partner countries” to international “corporate tribunals” to assess sanctions and fines for violations of trade laws;
<>
08.) In our case, fines are paid out of the US Treasury to nations and multinational corporations for damages, including “future” domestic profits that were unrealized due to US laws (that violate TPP’s provisions) being enforced;
<>
09.) This permanent agreement (which is not modifiable due to “fast track” trade authority given to POTUS OBAMA by corporate sponsored US Senators and US House Reps in 2015) is backdoor colonialism;
<>
10.) TPP was written by 600 multinational corporate C.E.O.’s, board members, lobbyists and lawyers in secret;
<>
11.) Americans can’t even get official copies of TPP, but some have leaked out due to the work of whistleblowers (like Wikileaks) who will be jailed for doing such things as the peoples homework if the deal passes;
<>
12.) There has been minimal public input but lots of social media push back.
<>
13.) 22 Senators who’ve seen TPP are sworn to secrecy; Name/Web below;
<>
14.) TPP was started in 2008 by POTUS George W. Bush (R- *TX 2001-2008) and taken up by POTUS Obama without missing a step;
<>
15.) During the 2012 campaign for President, Bishop Willard “Mitt” Romney, a venture capitalist, insisted that TPP be passed without delay;
<>
16.) US worker bargaining agreements, rights or safety regulations do not apply if TPP is passed into law by “an up or down vote” in the US Senate;
<>
17.) TPP involves the U.S. and 11 Pacific Rim countries. TPP partners include: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Peru, United States, and Vietnam.
<>
18.) TPP will control 40% of world trade for Forbes 400 King profit-charter psychopaths …who use capitalism to buy the Corporate Congressional GOPee and Blue-Dogs, and run the world;
<>
19.) TPP approval requires 67 votes in the US Senate “millionaire’s club” and Obama, now that “Fast Track” trade status was approved in Congress.
<>
20.) It is “the forerunner” of an equally large trade deal with “Euro Zone” Countries called TTIP – Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership. (The Euro Zone consists of 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.);
<>
21.) Once TPP (involving the US with 11 Pacific Rim countries) and TTIP (combining Euro Zone countries) are completed, “600 multinational corporations” will control 60% of world trade “on terms corporations dictated.”

Economics-Jobs-Labor-0666BULLSH*T DETECTECTORS HAVE BEEN OUT THERE FOR A LONG TIME ON FREE TRADE. HERE IS A HISTORY LESSON ON
N.A.F.T.A., THE NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENT, 1992.
U.S. Congress and POTUS 42 Bill Clinton teamed up!
><>
Texas businessman and Independent Presidential candidate Ross Perot accurately predicted the effects of NAFTA on jobs and labor in the United States. Perot opposed NAFTA, while neither of the 1%’s other two candidates, Bush or Clinton, did.

~ Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, {Subscriber Supported} _ Link/URL*^*< https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_1992

ABOUT FREE TRADE
Trade Agreements effectively “rescind” all conflicting city, county, state, and national laws. Laws are produced from powers and abilities granted by “elected politicians” who produce legislation in a US constitutional frame work. Trade agreements don’t have to work from a US constitutional bias. Thus such agreements may tend to eclipse laws like collective bargaining agreements, human rights, environmental standards, etc, etc.
<>
All trade “partner nations” operate under threat of significant punitive trade sanction and penalty paid to “partners” who feel their free-trade profit-rights have been violated. Thus trade agreements have tended to end the prudent ways of using “national sovereignty” to protect critical resources and assets from exploitation, planning for the future, or just maintaining “nostalgic democracy” or civilization …over time.

Economics-Jobs-Labor-0666DID THE FREE TRADE SOVEREIGNTY RAID IN DETROIT TEACH ANYONE A HISTORY LESSON ON TRADE OR DEMOCRACY? IT’S RUN BY AN EMERGENCY MANAGER WHO WAS APPOINTED BY A DICTATOR.
Crumbling Infrastructure, Austerity, Failed Pension Plans from free trade;
N.A.F.T.A. – North American Free Trade Agreement (’94)
P.N.T.R. China, Permanent Normal Trade Relations btwn U.S. & China (’00),
C.A.F.T.A., Central American Free Trade Agreement (’04)
COLUMBIA Trade Agreement (’10)
SOUTH KOREA Trade Agreement (‘11)
Final Negotiations on “T.P.P.” Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement NEXT UP (if TPP passes) is TTIP; the European Union “version” of TPP involves 20% of world trade, the U.S. and Euro Zone countries.
><>
Free-Trade killed Detroit’s economy. It ejected 300,000 of Detroit’s manufacturing jobs to China, India and Mexico. Oligarch’s banks are raiding Detroit pension plans and infrastructure. Forbes 400 Kings (the oligarch’s of the planet earth) are the ones who demanded free trade in the first place.
><>
Republican “Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has seized power from local elected officials and handed it to a corporate lawyer he has named as the city’s ‘emergency manager.’ In July (2013) Snyder announced plans to steer Detroit into a federal bankruptcy process that could see its services curtailed, public employee pensions cut and assets sold off.” ~ John Nichols
><>
In November 2012, Michigan voters rejected the “Emergency Manager Bill” by referendum. Michigan Republicans passed another one that’s almost impossible to get rid of early in 2013.

Economics-Jobs-Labor-067ALL FREE TRADE IS CORP’S SOVEREIGNTY RAID.
TRADING PARTNER, NEW ZEALAND exposes their secret Trans-Pacific Partnership document.
><>
The TPP text was released by New Zealand on 11-23-15. It’s 2,000 pages and 30 chapters, but fewer than one third of the text is about trade. 500 corporate lawyers and lobbyists wrote it. It manages 12 economies for the benefit of corporations.
><>
All but a couple of Republican/T Senators voted in favor of “Fast Track” trade authority for POTUS Obama. Fast Track was initiated under POTUS Richard Millhouse Nixon. 12 Democrats voted to authorize “Fast Track” trade authority which allows a president to present the agreement to Congress for an up or down vote without amendments.
><>
And without congressional amendments, TPP will overturn the US Constitution and any law on any level of government that conflicts with this New World Order Corporate Doctrine. It does have some trade provisions, but it’s not a trade deal. It’s a surrender of US sovereignty to a corporate tribunal in which corporations owned mostly by Forbes 400 King billionaire investors can suit governments for damages by arguing over vague language in a biased corporate tribunal.
><>
“The text of the TPP was released by TPP Parties on 5 November 2015 and can be accessed by Chapter below. Legal verification of the text will continue in the coming weeks. The Agreement will also be translated into French and Spanish language versions. The Government is preparing a legal synopsis of the Agreement and this will be available below in the coming days.”

Economics-Jobs-Labor-067ALL FREE TRADE IS CORP’S SOVEREIGNTY RAID.
WATCHDOG, EXPOSE THE TPP reveals the toxic trade agreement names.
><>
TPP, Tran-Pacific Partnership is a “PENDING” and almost finalized corporate written free trade agreement that involves the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim nations. It includes 40% of current world trade, a mix of “developing” (slave labor) and developed economies.
><>
TTIP, Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership is the “next” corporate written agreement between the U.S. and Euro-Zone Nations. It involves 20% of world trade.
><>
TPP (pending) + (future) TTIP approval would have “the U.S.” involved in 60% of the world’s free trade, a mix of “developing” (slave labor) and developed economies.
><>
TAA, Trade Adjustment Authority, provides funds for re-training “trade displaced” workers, for other jobs when theirs are lost to free trade with countries that pay workers 30 cents an hour. TAA is part of TPP and TTIP agreements. U.S. Congress “approved” TAA provisions in the “pending” TPP agreement.
><>
TiSA, the Trade in Services Agreement, is a major part of TPP and TTIP. TiSA is an expansive side agreement between the United States, the European Union and 23 other Nations including Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Taiwan & Israel. It takes in 66% of world trade.

Economics-Jobs-Labor-067TECH DIRT’S MIKE MASNICK WEIGHS IN ON TPP.
><>
[Since N.A.F.T.A. – North American Free Trade Agreement, $10 Trillion in debt was taken on to the U.S. Treasury (in what Steel Workers President, Leo Gerard, describes as) “the U.S. State Department’s Geopolitical Agenda.”]
“a columnist flat out calling the TPP an ugly secretive ‘corporatist power grab’ that pretty much all countries should avoid.”
“the dangers of the TPP agreement, how it’s nothing more than the USTR (U.S. Trade Representatives) teaming up with giant legacy companies to create a secretive massive corporatist, crony capitalist attack on the public, on innovation and on the economy.”
“The (William Pesek, Bloomberg) article goes on to mock the USTR’s arguments that it knows what it’s doing better than the public and that you peons shouldn’t worry about the TPP at all. Pesek points out that the secrecy in all of this from the Obama administration is more along the lines of what you’d expect from a ‘closed Communist Party state'”
“from the put-it-out-of-it’s-misery dept”

Economics-Jobs-Labor-070TECH DIRT WALLOWS IN THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT TPP.
“a columnist flat out calling the TPP an ugly secretive ‘corporatist power grab’ that pretty much all countries should avoid.”
“the dangers of the TPP agreement, how it’s nothing more than the USTR (U.S. Trade Representatives) teaming up with giant legacy companies to create a secretive massive corporatist, crony capitalist attack on the public, on innovation and on the economy.”
“The (William Pesek, Bloomberg) article goes on to mock the USTR’s arguments that it knows what it’s doing better than the public and that you peons shouldn’t worry about the TPP at all. Pesek points out that the secrecy in all of this from the Obama administration is more along the lines of what you’d expect from a ‘closed Communist Party state'”
“from the put-it-out-of-it’s-misery dept”

Economics-Jobs-Labor-100REUTERS NOTES OBAMA’S NEW TRANSPARENCY IN PAYBACKS, AS HIS MAIN ILLINOIS BACKER, PENNY PRITZKER, BECOMES COMMERCE SECRETARY.
The TPP corporate written “Trade Deal” is being negotiated by multi- millionaire U.S. Trade Representative, Mike Froman, who has a (tax haven) Caribbean bank account. He was previously an assistant to the POTUS 44, Barack Obama.
Multi-Billionaire and Chicagoan Penny Pritzker of the Hyatt Hotel fortune was “confirmed” as U.S. Commerce Secretary. Pritzker recruited big money millionaire and billionaire donors to back *IL Senator Barack Obama’s candidacy after serving a mere 1.5 years.

Economics-Jobs-Labor-101BILL PRESS DISCUSSES STRATEGY TO STOP TPP AND CONGRESSIONAL PROGRESSIVE CAUCUS Letter to Obama on TPP.
><>
STRATEGY NOTES from 06-14-12 Bill Press Radio Show
THREE WAYS TO FIGHT BACK INCLUDE:
(1.) “Dracula Strategy” – Drag the Obama Administrations U.S. Trade Representative Mike Froman and T.P.P. Trade “Baby” into the sunshine and expose the big secret of overturning US Laws and installing international Corporations Tribunals as our lords and masters;
(2.) Write a letter to your Congressman protesting the stealth, secrecy and lack of public input;
(3.) Sign on to “National Letter To The White House”
69 US Congressmen from the Democratic Progressive Caucus wrote President Obama a letter voicing concerns about TPP. It limits “Buy American” government procurement procedures (thus undermining the economic recovery as well as creating a greater trade imbalance);

Economics-Jobs-Labor-151OUR WORLD IS NOT FOR SALE WEIGHS IN ON TiSA, WHICH COVERS 66% OF WORLD TRADE.
“Eliminating government’s role in the delivery of services, getting rid of regulations, and allowing transnational corporations free rein sounds like the platform of a libertarian political party, a radical agenda that should be debated in public and that voters should have a say over at the ballot box. Instead, the Really Good Friends of Services have imposed unprecedented levels of secrecy on their negotiations, suppressing the public’s ability to discuss the serious issues at stake.”

About greenenvscithr

This American, a socially concerned blogger, is a conservationist and an anti-desertification advocate. Cultures with paralyzed memories expand deserts. These cause and effect traits define human impact in the geologic warming period that is marked by population explosion, technological advancement and desertification of vast tracts of arable land. As a tree-hugger, it’s easy to look around the world at deforestation which dries climates, decreases surface water, but increases soil erosion and global warming …evaluating them as slow motion end-times behaviors. It should also be noted that progressive behavioral change holds the potential to stride toward sustainability, and coexistence on a blue-green planet …with others who look, think, talk, or act differently. (Tribalism + Nationalism + Profit-Charter = Corp’s War + Human Carnage + Environmental Disaster) If regard for a living environment reached a status equal to that fomented by deities, a bond uniting humanity across cultural and national borders could really exist. The human behavior instruction manual might offer a harmonic concrete experience instead of the confusion in an 1,189 chapter tyrant's windsock that requires interpreters with different intentions to construct misunderstandings about both physical and virtual worlds. Any deity that demands intellectual hypocrisy to absorb what is abstract, and funnels prey to the misguidance that mandates blind-belief, silence and complicity (while spreading clinical paranoid schizophrenia) will just lead people where psychopaths designate. Most religions are better described as "Maleligions" …as their traditions and laws are male contrived and dominated hierarchies. They generally concentrate on controlling women for the convenience of men, and programming both for the advantage of tyrants. A dictator wants blind-believers with a testosterone disadvantage and compliant cracker ovens to repopulate followers, thus erasing fatal mistakes in his tyrannical judgment. Creating “emotional deserts” raft with mental vortexes, (in which to become psychologically lost), leads stealthily to the cultural dissonance and distraction that produces the real ones, “rock paved deserts.” The human race is minimally a gaggle of tribes of desert-makers, except for a few that live sustainably. Freed from the bondage of a hereafter (that promises a reunion with familiar like minded people and an aura of mystery), progress and sustainability (unencumbered by cultural apathy and a parched pre-destiny) could exist. But religions general heading is in the opposite direction… suppressing women, sporting flat earth firewalls and celebrating dark-age “dolthood” as it spills human brain power into an everlasting insurance policy. Generally speaking, mysterious religions provide segues between human ignorance and corrupt psychopaths in an overall unconscious effort to leave no planet worth inhabiting. 3,018 ac edited 09-27-14
