TPP, TTIP: Obama’s secret trade deals vs. Trump and Bernie

TPP, TTIP: Obama’s secret trade deals vs. Trump and Bernie

The press refuses to state the obvious: two US Presidential candidates who couldn’t be more different are on the same page when it comes to Globalist trade treaties.

Trump and Bernie—the gunslinger fast–talking cowboy and the programmatic socialist.

If the press did connect the dots, it would be admitting that millions of Americans from both candidates’ camps recognize the danger of these treaties—and pumping up that revelation would bring a major threat to the Globalist water-boy in the White House.

He is Barack Obama. When a preliminary vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) stalled in Congress last year, Obama and his team jumped on the phones and stayed there night and day trying to drum up support. And now, when the UK is considering an exit from the European Union, thus throwing a large monkey wrench in the US-EU Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), Obama flies to London, where, shockingly, he lowers the boom on the British government and the public, warning that an independent UK would have to stand at the back of the line when it comes to formulating a separate trade pact with the US.

Obama, as you might remember, was tutored on foreign policy, after his election in 2008, by Zbiggie Brzezinski, the intellectual water-boy for David Rockefeller, the king of Globalism, Planet Earth.

Brzezinski once wrote (1969):

“The nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”

These Globalist trade deals are, indeed, exercises in eliminating nations and turning over the economy of the world to mega-corporations.

For example, as The Independent reported (“What is TTIP? And six reasons why the answer should scare you,” 10/6/2015), the TTIP embodies Investor-State Dispute Settlements (ISDS), whereby corporations can sue governments when their profits are endangered.

For instance, Monsanto could sue the EU for refusing to accept the import of GMO food crops, thereby enabling a Monsanto end-run around Europe’s tight restrictions on GMOs.

The Independent:

“There are around 500 similar [ISDS] cases of businesses versus nations going on around the world at the moment and they are all taking place before ‘arbitration tribunals’ made up of corporate lawyers appointed on an ad hoc basis, which according to War on Want’s John Hilary, are ‘little more than kangaroo courts’ with ‘a vested interest in ruling in favour of business.’”

A nation has its own court system? How quaint. How outmoded. Let corporations take over.

Here are other agreements embedded in the TTIP Treaty—which by the way, is a super-secret contract very few people are permitted to read as negotiations now wrap up. The Independent cites several leaked points:

Under the TTIP, the provincial European notion of testing chemicals for safety before unleashing them on the population would be bulldozed by the superior American method: drench the people, ignore the consequences, and invent a consensus that the chemicals (e.g., pesticides) are harmless. Good luck with the consequences, Europe.

There would far less monitoring of the clinical trials of new medical drugs. Translation: pharmaceutical companies would be able to conceal trials that reveal devastating harm. More chemical assault against the populations of both Europe and the US.

Food safety and environmental standards would be compromised on both sides of the Atlantic.

European public services (water, health, education) would open their doors to privatization by US companies looking for ways to turn these services into profit-making enterprises—at higher prices. Big Pharma, with its load of toxic drugs, would exploit new markets by infiltrating nations’ public health services.

Consider the recent astounding action of US Trade Representatives in Europe. Using the TTIP negotiations as a blunt weapon, US Trade Reps pressured the European Union (EU) to modify its stance on pesticides.

The Guardian (May 22, 2015) headline and tag says it all:

“EU dropped pesticide laws due to US pressure over TTIP, documents reveal… US trade officials pushed EU to shelve action on endocrine-disrupting chemicals linked to cancer and male infertility to facilitate TTIP free trade deal”.

Note: this repressive and criminal action didn’t even involve a treaty that had been ratified. The pressure was all about the so-called positive economic impact the TTIP would have, when passed, for Europe. And in the face of that fictitious money benefit, and the threat of its removal (by ditching the TTIP negotiations), who would dare curb the import and use of chemicals that achieve something as “minor” as disrupting human endocrine systems and causing male infertility and cancer?

This is the sort of judgment we can look forward to, if the TTIP is ratified.

All this is what Obama is pushing. All this is what Hillary Clinton is pushing. At least some of this is what Trump and Bernie are criticizing.

the matrix revealed

The TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), another of the blockbuster trade treaties on the table, involves 12 member nations in the Pacific region. The TPP contains similar provisions for mega-corporations: the ISDS tribunals that supersede national courts; the shifting of controls on chemical safety to corporations; greater roughshod international intrusions by pharmaceutical and GMO/pesticide companies.

It’s a grotesque frame-up and set-up masquerading as a more equitable global economy.

And of course, implicit in all these trade treaties is the exporting of jobs from countries where wages and costs are higher to countries where they are lower—as low as possible, with as few environmental regulations as possible, with as few unions as possible. Where the rule of thumb is: Down and Dirty.

It’s more than interesting that the biggest voting bloc in the US—the sum of Trump and Bernie supporters—are solidly against these Globalist treaties. But there the supporters are, on opposite sides of the fence, glaring at each other, while Hillary Clinton rides her horse down the center stripe, her blood-soaked hands on the reins, promising a united future for America.

Yes, united, under corporate Globalist management.

    Thank you for your efforts to inform the public.

    • Oliver Manuel says:

      At question now is the independence of the judicial branch of government:

      • Yes, but the real story here is that is an arranged marriaged between Soros and the environmentalist who sold out. And your paid off scientists.

        George Soros bought all that coal up and has a flash bang, whirly gig Nazi paperclip scientist method that will turn that coal into the finest methanol. An excepted clean fuel for the automobile, via Obama’s recent Clean Fuel Act, gained at the death of Antonin Scalia, who was tying up the pro vote; and who now sleeps with dah fishies.

        And the Co2 that is produced, and captured from that gained methanol subsidized advance gets Georgie boy a big fat check from the government for carbon capture and disposable down aging oil wells to repressurize them and gain another fat check from the oil boys, who get more oil from old wells, and their check from the government for their part in this environmental cluster fuck. That is the real story here OM.

        Soros now owns all the coal in the contnental USA. He is competing directly with Brazilian microcephaly inducing pesticide drinking sugar cane ethanol.
        World War three is raging. Georgie hates the Russians. BRICS against the BRaks.
        Soros the good ole boy environmentalist…can we put him down a hole…say on Mars.

    Just one question who’s going to buy and rent their products and services when their customers are broke or dead or both.

    • Alice Brenner says:

      It wont matter then. The tip top corporate elite and bankster families will have retained the power structure they are so afraid of loosing. In their scheme money just equals power. They aren’t so much driven by accumulating money as they are the fear that the ever growing masses will organize, wake up, and take the planet back. They would end up kicked out of their glided castles and many would be in jail. A truly free people who make decisions not driven by money but by what is best for the planet and for each other would not allow their continued draining of the public coffers into their military industrial companies, their pharma companies, their big banks, etc, etc… They would like for most of us to die. Then we aren’t a threat to their spots at the top any more. A huge reduction of the population is part of UN agenda 21… They want to remain in charge of everything, while most of us die so they can redesign their planet to their specifications.

    […] If Trump wins the nomination and then the presidency, does he face the same fate as JFK and MLK? And what about the WTC? The shadow government mechanics (assassins) step forward only when absolutely necessary. For JFK it was elements of the CIA et al. For MLK it was the FBI et al. 911 – Military intelligence and government insiders at the top? Worrying too much about who might gain the White House pulls our attention away from the most important task. Exposing the 911 perpetrators would seem a priority. When this happens the whole fabric of controlled government will collapse. Unfortunately with great violence, because those behind 911 will not stand still and let exposure happen. I think this is the dark reality of American politics.

    • Terri says:

      What else is possible Tuscan forest? Until the people fulfill their responsibility and duties as American citizens of our Constitutional Republic shadow ops will continue to fill in the void that is created by the people abdicating their will and power to darkness. Violence is not something that has to happen, and if we cant imagine a different reality then that, than we are just feeding that reality and making the probability stronger.

      What would it take for everyone to have to admit who pulled off 9 11? How would that change anything? The truth has already been told about this.

      Its the people who have failed themselves, not anyone else. They are responsible for the growing hegemony over the world which has created death and destruction. Simple cause and effect. The choice to be victims creates perpetrators, not the other way around. All of us must be diligent and remove any habits we may have of being victims in any way, even the smallest of ways. Chipping away at the question “Who decides?” is very important. This will change reality in a greater way than we realize. This is the beginning of exercising and realizing our own divine power within. The same power that creates worlds is inside of all of us. We must stop waiting for the outside world to change thru disclosure and change it for ourselves NOW.

  4. From Québec says:

    And to think that some morons are still voting for liyin’ Ted who wants these treaties to pass. It blows my mind.

    How stupid can they be? Unbelievable!

  5. Thought says:

    I know doing due diligence doesn’t count for much but perhaps before you spread the “Trump doesn’t support global trade treaties” nonsense you could do some investigation of his business dealings over the years. Or not. I mean of course Trump would never play a PR game just to get votes. Nah.

  6. Look, I’m gonna play devil’s advocate again here, Jon.

    Everything was there is this one, except probably the most important observation.

    When I was “growing up” (well, technically, I still am), I had “buyer beware” drummed me into from the time my ears started working.

    Isn’t this, in some ways, a reflection of the greedy apathetic ignorance of the dumb populaces at large? Do these “regular folks” never buy chemicals to spray on their gardens? Are pharmaceutical drugs “forced” on anyone unhealthy?

    It seems to me as though there is a great deal of “capitulation” with rank and FILE here. I would be willing to bet that if people, in general, became less ignorant, these austere commerce measures would wither and die in the new sun.

    The problems is, the reverse seems to be happening in so many ways…..

    What did Kubrick say, “Eyes wide shut!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


    • a800lbgrila says:

      Good points. Problem is that fraud and weasels have now infiltrated business that it’s become a full time job trying to stay informed. So how could you follow the simpsons and also study? LOL We have the ‘we are change’ government we deserve. As myopic, immoral, unethical, and fat as its citizens. FOX already hired all the beautiful people. Does any network look like the crowd you see at Kmart?

      • Agreed.

        But, in a sense, it’s a bit simpler than that. When the clacker drops and everyone says enough is enough we’ll be back to the good ol’ days of civil strikes en-masse. The trouble is that, as I state regularly on my Ozzie Thinker blog, people, in general, are as bad as the elites as just about everyone tries to bite off more than they can chew, if they can get away with it. The bloody mainstream Media stoke that furnace with precision – “trouble & toil, but what PERKS, eh?”

        So, we have the great standoff:

        Arrogant ineptitude versus inept arrogance.

        • a800lbgrila says:

          I realized that in 2004. Biting off more than I need means starting with the basics. Basics include power, water, food, etc. Have water use down to less than 350 gallons monthly. That’s right … Saturday is shave and shower night. No food ever gets thrown away … took 3 years to get this correct. No fast food or dining out …. ever. If I applied for that food stamp charity I would qualify for $125 monthly … I’d have money left over so tye dog and cat get treats. LOL No alcohol or drugs … ever. I found out the meaning of owning your stuff versus your stuff owning you. A few moves should teach this to anyone. I live in <450 sq ft. That's smarter than a small studio apartment. So here's the crux … how many 21st century Americans or western civ types could emulate my lifestyle? If they did, well, a few econ books I've read blame men like me as the US economic problem. Agenda 21 … I've already beat their bullshit and am willing to bet the designers can't match my low consumption. Does that mean I might qualify for a carbon credit? LOL

          • Good grief, give up fine wines altogether?

            All in moderation, old chap, surely 😉

            I was more referring to the old proverb “give ’em an inch and they’ll take a mile”. Good people probably greedier than they think and certainly more ambitious than they’ll “admit” to.

            But hey, I’m all for clean livin’, providin’ it’s 5 star!

    Informing the public is paramount! Most people I know are clueless regarding what is happening right under their noses. Thank you for doing your best to get the info out there!

    “The nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”
    I have no problem with this concept other than if a multinational wants to be a small country then budget as one. They must provide for their own Navy protecting their product shipments. Self provide their own security force to protect their grid systems, water supply, plant premises, etc. As in blackwater. Provide their own roads and rail systems to get the product to and from the port. I’ll bet after all that nobody could afford the product. Lmfao

  10. a800lbgrila says:

    Your correct about taking what they don’t merit. In my trade here’s a trick that most wise Cali contractors know … slow walking the job. We give the illegals an inch by hiring them because they work cheap but on the job site they take twice as long to accomplish an educated american with the task experience. So I pay the illegal laborer $10 an hour … he slow walks every tiny task taking twice as much time to accomplish the same task that I could have hired done at $15 an hour to the experienced american. Costing me $5 an hour more than I budgeted and running the contract into overtime/overbudget. I also lose my undertime bonus. Unions and civil service also pull this trick especially when contracts are tight. Note … I used the term illegals and not Mexicans because I’m including armenians, brits, aussies, etc. Eastern europeans were raised this way … GD communism destroys incentive. Now you know why Boston projects go decades overtime and millions over budget. Give an inch … yup, got it. As for living a little … after watching the latest films and docudramas (sat TV is necessary to stay up on latest MSM propoganda .. a pleasure I delight in) I find feeding and watching birds here at the ranch more entertaining. LOL My other love and forte is physics … I’m an electrical contractor. Many great things are happening in my field that spell independent off grid living. I experiment with hydrogen … HHO … and internal combustion engine power production on a shoestring budget.
