Most Americans are aware of how much damage NAFTA (thank you Heritage Foundation) has done to the economy of this country through the loss of jobs and American industries.
But someone is playing some dangerous games here and what they are doing is playing with our livelihood and the very existence of the American Family and our sovereignty.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a secretive, multinational trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement. The focus of this trade agreement is between the countries of US, Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei Darussalam. The TPP also contains a chapter on intellectual property covering copyright, trademarks, and patents.
This document has grown to 5,544 pages long – longer than the “Gang of Eight (RUBIO) immigration bill and Obamacare combined. It weighs over 100 pounds yet is the most secretive document in the history of this country.
Dangers: 1) Intellectual Property Chapter: Leaked draft texts of the agreement show that the IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of speech, right to privacy and due process, and hinder peoples' abilities to innovate.
(2) Lack of Transparency: The entire process has shut out multi-stakeholder participation and is shrouded in secrecy.
This country does not need any more trade agreements especially those that will move more jobs out of the country or saturate our country with more foreign, cheaply made goods. But the TPP goes further than just trade agreements raising significant concerns about citizens’ freedom of expression, due process, innovation, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and the right of sovereign nations to develop policies and laws that best meet their domestic priorities. In sum, the TPP puts at risk some of the most fundamental rights that enable access to knowledge for the world’s citizens.
I believe it is important for Americans to understand the TPP and the long standing TPA. Where does Congress have their heads and just who are they working for? I guess we found that out with all the corporate money that flowed into the hands of several Senate members for casting yes votes for the passing of the TPA. Does this mean they can be bought and we are correct in referring to them as “corporate whores”? You betcha! I hope those of you who are missing the Bushes in the White House read this very carefully.
The Trade Promotion Authority (TPA): The TPA was created by the Nixon administration (along with globalist Henry Kissinger) as a temporary yet extremely controversial transfer of authority from the Congress to the President, giving the President the power and authority to negotiate international agreements. Fast Track Negotiating Authority, as it was formerly known, prohibits Congress from amending (or filibustering) any trade deal created by the President. It was first written into the Trade Act of 1974, Section 151–154 (19 U.S.C. 2191–2194) and passed by Congress. Set to expire in 1980, it was extended for another eight years under the Trade Agreements Act of 1979.
In 1988, the Fast Track Negotiating Authority was renewed again, this time serving as the mechanism that ushered in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the World Trade Organization (WTO), and ultimately the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA). Note that this was the general time period of the George H.W. Bush administration.
(Important to note: Mack McLarty, chief of staff for Bill Clinton, served as Clinton's "special envoy to the Americas," in which capacity he was a key mover and shaker in the creation of NAFTA and the yet to be implemented Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), which also originated from David Rockefeller. McLarty was a top official at the 1994 Miami Summit of the Americas which laid the groundwork for this Trade bloc.
Perhaps importantly and arguably the most significant push of the TPA was by George W. Bush, who continued his father’s “New World Order” legacy by making Fast Track part of his campaign platform in 2000. Early during his first term, Bush spoke at the Council of the Americas (May 2001), a group founded by globalist David Rockefeller in 1965. It is relevant, if not critical to note that Henry Kissinger is a member of the Council of the Americas, a group that was instrumental in getting the TPA passed again. The Fast Track Authority passed the House by a mere three votes at 3:30 a.m. on July 27, 2002, the Senate on August 1, 2002, as part of the Trade Act of 2002.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): The TPP began in 2005 under the leadership of George W. Bush as the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPSEP or P4). At present, twelve countries are involved in the proposed trade deal, including: The United States, Mexico, Canada, Brunei, Singapore, New Zealand, Vietnam, Chile, Australia, Peru, Japan, and Malaysia. Obama quickly became a proponent of both the TPP and the TPA as he began his tenure in the Oval Office.
The TPP is being negotiated under heavy secrecy, with criminal penalties for anyone who leaks information about the agreement to the public. Nonetheless, there have been several leaks that indicate the TPP involves far more than normal trade agreements, and will be the framework for a “New World Order” that begins with a “New Financial Order” anchored by the TPP. It is important to understand that the TPP will involve nearly two-thirds of the world’s economy as it currently stands.
The World’s Trojan Horse: With information first leaked by Wikileaks in 2013, it is very apparent this whole thing is a huge step to the “New World Order” which also includes the formation of the North American Union (also started under George W. Bush) and Obamacare in the TPP framework.
The TPP calls for restrictions on “trademarks, patents, copyrights and other geopolitical indicators”. It also details U.S. corporate control regarding the three most important things to mankind: health, land use, and the environment.
The most frightening part about this is it will control both small arms and immigration into the US while giving over Articles of the United States Constitution to world arbitrating bodies.
The TPP appears to be one of the most important end-game mechanisms to the New World Order and to carry this off “THEY” must first destroy “OUR” national sovereignty. If you truly take an honest look at this and the future North American Union you will understand all the lies told us by our presidents in closing the southern border.
Elizabeth Warren has come out swinging against Obama (she is not one of my favorites but she is right on this issue) on the TPP deal. The whole deal itself has been treated like the largest national security agreement to ever hit our shores. But it is NOT a national security agreement, but it IS the largest secret in recent years. We haven’t heard details about it because even most of the elected Congress doesn’t know what is in it. We aren’t even sure the President knows, just that he is agreeing with the corporations pushing for it.
Corporate Whores who have pushed and pushed to control every aspect of the American way of life for years upon years are intending to pass this legislation. Once again I see the elected legislators refusing to follow the will of the people and vote against this monster.
Warren stated, “Are you ready to fight? No more secret deals. No more special deals for multinational corporations. Are you ready to fight? Are you ready to fight any more deals that say we are going to help the rich get richer and leave everyone else behind? Are you ready to fight back?"
Since the draft text of the agreement has never been officially released to the public, we know from leaked documents, such as the May 2014 draft of the TPP Intellectual Property Chapter, US negotiators are pushing for the adoption of copyright measures far more restrictive than currently required by international treaties, including the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).
You MUST ask yourself if the TPP is supposedly as great for Americans as the legislators are saying, then why is everything being done BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
I don’t care if there are rich people in this country – what I do care about is those that have the money and think they have the RIGHT to destroy our country and make our citizens robotic followers into their COLLECTIVE mindset rather than ‘we the people’ being INDIVIDUALS.
Obama’s response to Warren’s remarks were that he and Warren are friends but that Warren is wrong on this issue”. Sorry Obama but you are wrong and there is much more to this.
Obama is deliberately working to destroy the United States of America with the aid of some of our elected officials clear down to the local level with their pockets being filled with corporate dollars. If we make it to a 2016 election, Americans need to seriously take a look at where their money is coming from and their voting records – not just recently, but since they were first elected.

Diane’s background is not one of an educator, but as an Auditor showingher a love of “digging”. In 1980 when shetook up the hobby of Genealogy as the TV commercial says “she was in deep”.
Dianehaswitnessed the decline in the scholastic achievement levels of our children brought about by the interference of the Federal DOE and individuals/businesses who choose to use our children as “human collateral” for their own financial gains. In the process they are leading them into a Communist agenda to be overseen by the United Nations.
She actually began her Education research regarding the “International Baccalaurate” (IB) program and that branched out into all aspects of foreign education of which has been allowed into our schools. Then it moved on tothe push for Charter Schools with “unelected” school boards to the indoctrination of our children with the Common Core State Standards.
Diane does at times branch out into other topics important to Americans and the preservation of America. Her special projects are Charter Schools, Child Abuse, Abortions and Human Trafficking.
Diane is married to her high school sweetheart/very best friend and they have a blended family of 8 children, 13 grandchildren and three great-grandsons so you can readily understand why she chose Education or the “lack thereof” and the world’s danger to our children as her passion.
She maintains 5 web sites, belongs to manydifferent groups, has a blog site and is also very active in the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
