Trans-Pacific Partnership: The Ultimate Sell Out

Rate: 11 Flag

 

 

 

 

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that the Obama administration is soon to agree to, with the full support of the Corporately owned Democratic and Republican Parties) will be the ultimate sell out of the American people.

 

Here is a list of just some of the horrors Obama is agreeing to:

 

 

  • New investor safeguards to ease job offshoring (If you liked the job loss of NAFTA, you will LOVE the TPP)
  • New rights and privileges for corporations  (think of Disney suing you for watching a U-tube video over the internet)
  • Permanent constraints on government regulation  (Think Monsanto with no constraints)
  • Increased corporate assert control over natural resources (Drill baby DRILL!)
  • Severely limit the regulation of financial services, land use, food safety, natural resources, energy, tobacco, healthcare (Wall Street Corpocacy run amuck!)
  • Countries would be obliged to conform all their domestic laws and regulations to the TPP’s rules (in effect, a corporate coup d’état)
  • Would limit even how governments can spend their tax dollars (i.e. Japan can veto spending taxes to prevent the wholesale slaughter of whales?)
  • Buy America and other Buy Local procurement preferences that invest in the US economy would be banned. (say goodbye to what manufacturing still resides in the US)
  • Retrograde rules could be altered only if all countries agreed, regardless of domestic election outcomes or changes in public opinion. (say goodbye to rule of law too!)
  • Corporations could sue governments that they believe have taken actions that undermines their expected future profits or rights under the pact. (under NAFTA governments have been forced to pay more than $350 million to corporations after suits against toxic bans, land-use policies, forestry rules…  this will be GREATLY increased)
  • Three-person international tribunals of attorneys from the private sector would hear these suits against the governments. (that’s right… not American judges… rotating international private party lawyers).

 

This is Obama, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party colluding to sell out the American people solely to the benefit of Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Agribusiness and Big Multinationals.

 

It represents a total loss of democracy and tramples human rights.

 

 

Is there any doubt why it is being agreed to, IN YOUR NAME, in secret?

 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

BTW, This agreement scares the crap out of me because it has NOT expiration clause. We are stuck with it forever!
Oh great! I just saw a picture of Obama getting ready to eat $300 a piece sushi with the PM of Japan. Must be his version of "Let them eat cake!"
Is it agreed on already or is this trip to Japan helping put it in place?
I admit, I've quit looking lately.
Incredibly depressing - and frightening.
What can we do? I ask in all seriousness.
Massive corruption and the ULTIMATE SELLOUT for a liar-in-chief who manipulated us to get elected. We are only stuck in it until we break the shackles of corruption. Then, we can absolve ourselves of all of the predatory and corrupt rules they created to steal our sovereignty.
The consolation prize is that many senators in both parties are beginning to choke on this -- big time. Encourage them.

Finally all those radioactive fish in the Pacific can find a market. May the biggest portion end up on Barry's plate.
Amy, below is from global research website with a petition at bottom from roots action. terrifying!!! This focuses on internet censorship organized under TPP. The T should be for "totalitarianism." best, libby

Secret Plan to Advance Global Internet Censorship. ISPs to Act as “Internet Police”

Quoted Material:

"Here’s the situation: President Obama himself is in secretive meetings with key political figures and lobbyists in Asia to lock the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s Internet censorship plan into place.

"We know from leaked documents that this secretive plan will censor your use of the Internet and strip away your rights. If finalized, this plan would force ISPs to act as “Internet Police” monitoring our Internet use, censoring content, and removing whole websites.

"It will give media conglomerates centralized control over what you can watch and share online.

"We urgently need your help to fight back. Add your voice right now and we’ll project a Stop the Secrecy message on key buildings in Washington D.C. to ensure Obama, the media, and everyone else knows this censorship plan must be stopped.

"This is huge: covering 40% of the global economy, the TPP is being called a legal “blueprint” for the rest of the world. Once key leaders finalize TPP Internet censorship plans, those plans will be used to globalize censorship. You will be affected and this may be our only chance to stop it.

"Our attention-grabbing message will shine a light on their secret plan and will make clear to Washington lobbyists that the Internet community will never accept the TPP’s secrecy or censorship. The more who speak out, the larger our projection will become, and the more people we can reach.

"This is a decisive moment: we need to act right now. Join with hundreds of thousands of people all over the world to shine a light on the TPP’s job-killing Internet censorship plan. Let’s send decision-makers and the lobbyists pulling the strings a message they can’t ignore: “Stop the secrecy now.”

"Thank you for being a part of history..."

Excellent post. So far the Democrats are saying they won't give Obama fast track authority - at least in this Congress. And the Japanese are refusing to open up their markets so the US can dump cheap (government subsidized) agricultural products on them: http://thehill.com/blogs/on-the-money/trade/203920-obama-seeks-boost-for-flagging-trade-agenda-in-asia-pacific-trip

This has become a big issue now that China is refusing to allow in shipments of GMO corn: http://intellihub.com/pressure-cargill-adm-dump-gmo-china-rejects-corn-imports/
Petition signed. I've hated the TPP for a while.

It's far worse than NAFTA. The rationale for NAFTA at the time was that we were either going to lose those jobs to Asia or Mexico, and the advantage of Mexico was that Mexicans bought American at the time way, way more than Asians did, so helping them get richer was a better deal.

Which may actually have been true, unless we figured out a way to keep the jobs here as opposed to Asia.
Have you even read the full context of TPP, apparently not. Funny thing about all these political posts on OS, they all have the same message (Obama is ruining the country) and the comment section always has the same people complimenting each others lies, then call someone a liar when they oppose your copied nonsense. Enjoy your day even though it scares the hell out of you.
mr. junior jsoc 3rd grader weighs in with his usual inanity.

First of all:

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secretive, multi-national trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement.

Now, presuming it could be read, how would odor/(UN)exaggerated even read it when "Fun with DICK and Jane" is way beyond his comprehension level?
