The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — a trade agreement that will gut the remainder of our manufacturing sector, and with it, any hope of recovery for the middle class.  It will make an end run around the legislative process by putting into force the guts of a SOPA bill that was soundly defeated in Congress.  It will give over U.S. sovereignty to International Tribunals.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  What is contained in the rest of this 29-chapter monstrosity?  We don’t have a clue because it’s being negotiated in total secrecy.  Even members of Congress can’t get a look at it!  But guess who does know?  Six hundred (600) corporate “consultants” whose employers are so ruthless in their methods of operation that they make the KGB look like a bunch of Boy Scouts.  The list of co-conspirators includes Monsanto, Wal-Mart, Citigroup, Chevron, and AT&T.  Guess how many of these companies were identified by as big-time donors to President Obama? (spoiler alert: all of them.)
