Published on Aug 13, 2016 WikiLeaks' Assange - TPP Not Only Trade, 83% Is Fascists Controlling Our Daily Lives - Once We're In, We're Stuck Forever
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange knows more about the contents of the TPP than most members of Congress and is doing much more to inform the American public than any of our so-called representatives with the lone exception of Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). He has no restrictions other than his politically-motivated confinement to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on his freedom to disclose the truth to the world and he is sounding the alarm.
Assange described it in a Democracy Now interview as being not formally classified but being treated as if it is classified in terms of how the information is being managed. He says, It is very well-guarded from the press and the majority of people and even from Congressman, but 600 U.S. companies are part of the process and have been given access to various parts of the TPP.
He continues, Its the largest ever international economic treaty that has ever been negotiated. Very, considerably larger than NAFTA, it is mostly not about trade. Only five of the twenty-nine chapters are about traditional trade. The others are about regulating the Internet. Internet service providers have to collect information; they have to hand it over to companies under certain circumstances. Its about regulating labor, what labor conditions can be applied, regulating whether you can favor a local industry, regulating the hospital health care system, privatization of hospitals.
Essentially every aspect of the modern economy, says Assange, even banking services, are in the TPP. So that is erecting and embedding a new, ultra-modern neo-liberal structure in U.S. law and in the laws of the other countries that are participating.
Assange notes that because it is in a treaty form, it is very very hard to overturn, requiring agreement of the other nations involved. He gives examples of how this will most certainly be abused if its approved and points out that the enhanced ability to sue and intimidate governments only applies to the large, multinational corporations. Corporations owned and operated solely within the United States are at a disadvantage in that regard to the unconstitutional advantages provide to the multinationals.
He addresses the chilling effect of intimidation and the wide ranging impact it will have as a result of threatened lawsuits, from the prospect of the legal expenses alone.
This treaty is the antithesis of what America is built upon. Its no surprise that the global Marxist Obama is its greatest champion. What is surprising is that Republicans are his most vocal and ardent cheerleaders.
Theres a stench rising from the McConnell / Boehner Congress. Thats what treason smells like. _______________________________________________________
Trump opposes it.
Some light reading/S
It is time, Katie get you gun !
Until this guy shows up to face the rape charges against him, I am going to assume that he is desperate enough to lie to me if he feels it will help him escape justice. I think that there are better sources of information for me.
Hillary supports TTP.
Trump opposes it.
And ANYONE not supporting Trump, supports TPP!
She flip-flopped on her position. But rested sure to BH oh has said he is going to try to get a pass before the end of this year. that must be baiting trump to make comments on TPP
The Cubanadian Senator from Texas enabled them to get this far.
No, not surprising at all. Just another example of Republicans stabbing us in the back. What would be surprising would be to see some Republicans actually embracing conservatism, standing up to Obama, and defending the principles this country was founded on. But they're only interested in cronyism, statism, and their own political careers. Does anyone have any faith left in the GOP?
What are you today, some kind of NSA boot-licker?
Gee, and who among our Congress also support TPP?
What a bunch of traitors.
So on other words, it’s 83% more than what it should be.
It’s a Trojan horse for sure.
Sexual charges are easy to fake. He said / she said.
If you were out to set up an enemy revealing secrets you don’t want out, pretty easy to go with sex.
Of course, he might be guilty.
The left celebrated the release of the Pentagon Papers. Why not celebrate when the DNC and Hillary hack are dropped?
I like him more as each day passes.
Any enemy of the Clintons and dems is a friend of mine.
Some of them might even oppose it if they ever bothered to read it.
Others are on Team Globalist and like it.
You think he’d get a fair trial?
I just don't think that fugitives have much credibility because they are showing us what they will do to avoid justice and truth. I can no longer assume that he's telling me the truth about anything.
The fact that they are trying to ram a secret treaty down our throats means it’s deadly to us a nation and people.
No doubt, the globalist oligarchs will profit, and that is who control the US govt.
