One wonders how many backdoor negotiations continue during the government shutdown sham? If you’re reading from any of the Pacific Rim Countries listed in the below video, I encourage you to let those who claim to represent you in government know that you are watching them and are holding them accountable. Now. Before it’s too late. If you live in Europe, the US or Canada, I encourage you to scroll through for information about the equivalently evil trade agreement in the works for your areas. (It’s called the TTIP.)
FYI, the TPP details are so secret that (despite their demands) even Congress hasn’t been able to get its hands on the actual agreement details. Meanwhile, the largest corporations and the White House are all sitting at the table hammering out the next (strengthened) dictatorship. Think we’ve got a problem with corporate fascism now? Just you wait. The few details that have been leaked suggest that TPP would completely undermine any GMO labeling or bans, even in countries that already have such bans. It also would make the lowest common denominator of food standards the mandatory standard for all participating countries. In other words, let’s say China joins. Most of us have heard about Chinese “foods” that make even Monsanto’s frankenfoods look safe and healthy. Well, guess what? If China decides to join, then their food regulation levels could become those of all other participating countries. No exceptions, no matter what your nation’s laws require. The TPP overrides national sovereignty via corporate control. Again, no exceptions.
Ditto on workers rights. Think we’ve got a 1% problem now? At least workers can still organize to protest. The TPP seeks to stop all that, because, you know, this silly awakening of the little peons is bad for business. Must. Rape. More. Resources. Including people. The TPP also makes it a crime to click on certain internet links, even by accident. TPP takes the current levels of internet censorship and pumps them with GMO-mega-steroids. Because, you know, this internet awakening is also really pesky. Time to squash online opposition and free sharing of information that might (gasp!) free the people from corporate brainwashing and domination. We just can’t afford to have such things in our Brave New World (Order).
Those of you in Europe can look forward to something called the TTIP, the equivalent attempt at a secretive, corporate and big government run global trade agreement for countries on opposite sides of the Atlantic. If you’ve been sitting in Europe patting yourselves on the back that only silly Americans are so stupid to allow unlabeled GMO’s and rampant plantings of GMO crops in their country while you’ve got mandatory labeling or GMO crop bans in your country … well, think again. If this trade agreement goes through, then you, yes you, could be forced to accept US insanity as your own food, safety and worker guidelines. The TTIP also goes after intellectual and free speech rights.
Just as in the US, in the EU, this agreement is being negotiated in secrecy by lobbyists of the largest and sickest corporations in the countries affected. “These new treaties which represent U.S. and Canadian private corporations interests in EU countries and gives corporations as Exxon, Monsanto, Dow chemicals and many others right to sue any EU country and EU at the International Court. Both treaties are based on copyright regulations and compulsorily binding rules in order to get compensation if democratically approved legislation harms their interests.”
Here’s a video about the TPP:
“TPP: a trade and globalization agreement among 12 countries (Australia, Brunei-Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam). If this agreement puts corporate rights first, workers and their families in all 12 countries could be harmed by downward pressure on wages and labor rights; more polluted air and water; reduced access to life saving medicines; and more powerful corporations influencing our laws and trying to override our voices. We encourage you to learn more about the TPP, share the video, and sign the petition to ask the governments involved to put people first as they work on this deal. Learn more about the TPP here:

Stop the Madness. Dr. Evil, Darth Vader, Monsatan and the lying, spying fascists and eugenicists belong in straight jackets and padded cells, not at the highest levels of power to determine our future. “Arrest” means stop, in addition to the idea of imprisoning sociopaths. While the world teeters on the brink of global collapse, rest assured, these whack jobs are drooling and peeing themselves with the next opportunity to “save” us from ourselves. Please do something about this. The middle men required to enforce this dystopia need to know we’re onto them. We’re watching, and we support them standing up to the psychotic bullies using them as useful (and eventually expendable) idiots. Now is the time.
