Pretty much the enemy of humanity and the environment. And I won’t vote for her, and hope she is arrested and imprisoned prior to November…

Clinton Picks TPP and Fracking Advocate To Set Up Her White House

BTW, July was the hottest month in human history.

Clinton’s mindless herds keep selling her as the one who will fight Global Warming?  She’s a corporate/fascist who will betray us all starting on day one.

The TPP will:

“let corporations overturn U.S. laws, speed up the destruction of the environment, outsource jobs, encourage slavery, eliminate food safety standards, make medicine cost even more, censor and restrict the internet, impede reform of Wall Street, and make those 20 people who own as much as half the country even richer at your expense?”

Don’t give a damn about the TPP? You’re going to wish it gave a damn about you

“This trade deal would make it easier for corporations to shut down more factories in the U.S. and ship more jobs to Vietnam and Malaysia where workers are paid pennies an hour. The TPP is a continuation of our disastrous trade policies that have devastated manufacturing cities and towns all over this country from Newton, Iowa, to Cleveland, Ohio. We need to rebuild the disappearing middle class, not tear it down.

New Leak of Final TPP Text

Moreover, it codifies a crackdown on freedom of speech with rules allowing widespread internet censorship.

“The text of the TPP’s intellectual property chapter confirms advocates’ warnings that this deal poses a grave threat to global freedom of expression and basic access to things like medicine and information,”

“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements

Fast-track authority is being sought in the Senate this week for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), along with the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) and any other such trade agreements coming down the pike in the next six years. The terms of the TPP and the TiSA are so secret that drafts of the negotiations are to remain classified for four years or five years, respectively, after the deals have been passed into law. How can laws be enforced against people and governments who are not allowed to know what was negotiated?

The TPP, TiSA and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (or TTIP, which covers Europe) will collectively encompass three-fourths of the world’s GDP; and they ultimately seek to encompass nearly 90 percent of GDP. Despite this enormous global impact, fast-track authority would allow the President to sign the deals before their terms have been made public, and send implementing legislation to Congress that cannot be amended or filibustered and is not subject to the constitutional requirement of a two-thirds treaty vote.

While the deals are being negotiated, lawmakers can see their terms only under the strictest secrecy, and they can be subjected to criminal prosecution for revealing those terms. What we know of them comes only through WikiLeaks. The agreements are being treated as if they were a matter of grave national security, yet they are not about troop movements or military strategy. Something else is obviously going on.

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Promoting Global Tyranny Run By Corporations. Here’s How to Stop Them

YELL AT CONGRESS:

(Send a different letter each day.)

This unconstitutional menace is arguably the greatest betrayal in history, but of course there is also the Bush regime’s 9/11, so we essentially live in an age of monumental Machiavellian abominations.

The “Trans Pacific Partnership” would end the USA as a sovereign state. The laws passed by Congress and state governments would be challenged into non-existence by supreme corporations. These multinationals will claim that all regulations that hurt their desired profits are against the rules: labor laws, environmental protections, consumer protections, ANY protections of the citizenry will be abolished over time. It’s the same trend that’s been occurring, but on steroids.

The Constitution says that only our Congress can make laws here, not foreign corporations. This is absurd on its face and arguably treasonous.

Barack Obama is now an enemy of the US, and he–and anyone supporting this TPP sham–should be impeached immediately.

Parts of the TPP won’t be declassified for four years … even if it’s passed:

The TPP Investment Chapter … is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations.

Ron Kirk, until recently Mr. Obama’s top trade official, was remarkably candid about why he opposed making the text public: doing so, he suggested to Reuters, would raise such opposition that it could make the deal impossible to sign.

Senator Elizabeth Warren notes:

Supporters of the deal say to me, “They have to be secret, because if the American people knew what was actually in them, they would be opposed.”

…However, under agreements like the TPP, these provisions apply to and override the laws of modern, stable, developed countries with democratic governance and fair court systems. The corporate representatives negotiating modern trade agreements see such democratically run governments as “burdensome” and chaotic, introducing “uncertainties” and “interfering” or “meddling” with the corporate order. As one supporter of these ISDS provisions put it, they protect corporations from “the waves of madness that occasionally flit through the population.”
