    Trans-Pacific Partnership - The Death of Sovereignty with Meghan Sali

    in Politics

    Trans-Pacific Partnership


    12 nations, 11% of global population, 40% of the global economy, 25% of global imports, 30% of global exports. 800 million people bound by an agreement negotiated in secret from the citizens and almost all elected representatives. Who wrote it then? Trade representatives with multi-national corporate lobbyists and executives at the tables from start to finish.


    A 30 chapter agreement with 5 involving actual trade. Environment. Financial Services. Patents. Copyrights. Intellectual Property. Pharmaceuticals. Health Care. Investment. Labour. Market Access. Procurement. Tobacco. State Owned Enterprises. Biotechnology and GMO's. And a new iron-clad version of the infamous Investor State Dispute Settlement "mechanism" complete with secret tribunals, secret judgements and secret awards. 5,544 pages worth of regulations, schedules, indexes, timetables and LOOPHOLES to empower the most powerful corporations on earth to have veto power say over how signatory nations will live their day-to-day lives. This is the latest method for the mostly American corporate elite to bypass the WTO, exclude and isolate "unfriendly" economies, enslave "freindly" economies and laugh all the way to the bank.


    Protests have been raging in every "partner nation" for years as February 4 nears as the day for "signing" of the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand. There is no opting out of any section or provision unless stated before that signing by any nation. No renegotiation.


    We are joined by Meghan Sali, a digital rights specialist with OpenMedia,org, leading the organization's free expression campaigns. For the past two years, she has been co-ordinating the campaign to shed light on the implications of TPP as they relate to preserving our online rights and building a properous, inclusive digital future.


    Tune in and hear the facts on TPP.

    Refugees, Rapists and Muslims No way! - Solar panel nightmare in the desert.

    in Politics

    Hr1   Refugees, rapists... what's the difference? Not much if you ask Germany, Sweden, and the other European countries who've welcomed those displaced migrants with open arms. Assimilation is key. And now Obama wants to bring HOW many of them here?


    And how about those Muslims who opened fire on patrons at a popular nightclub in Canada? Were they refugees? Why would they open fire on a nightclub? Sheer hatred for Western culture.


    Hr2  Epic FAIL: Solar power plant emits as much CO2 as Frito Lay plant. That's green energy at work! ... and where are the environmentalists on all the birds being fried at these plants? Don't bird lives matter?


    Canada imports new citizens...10,000 Syrian refugees, in other news... Muslims shoot up nightclub. Islamophobia anyone?


    Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won't hear anywhere else.


    The passing of David Bowie and his lasting imprint on the music industry.


    Sean Penn with drug lord El Chapo. Does Penn even know what this guy is about?


    The fallout of #racial protests at Mizzou, enrollment drops. And they're shocked?


    Growing ideological gap between students & professors. College life = Liberal indoctrination.


    Hr3  Obama's executive order meme fact check. Does the fact that he's issued fewer executive orders than other Presidents really matter when he's running ripshod over the Constitution?


    Executive orders are not laws, they are memoranda. So how will a federal judge enforce that? Good question.

    Author Mary Jean Teachman Will Discuss Depression During The Holidays

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Mary Jean Teachman.


     


    Mary Jean Teachman was born in Detroit, Michigan to Isabelle and George Dresbach. She went to the University of Detroit where she studied pre-law and mathematics. She married and had two children, Arthur Forrest Tull II and Valarie Tull. She later divorced, was single for 4 years, married Mort D. Lieberman and was then widowed after 18 years of marriage.  She found love again with Dr. Gerard W. Teachman and has been married for 23 years. She had a successful career for eight years as a runway and print model and appeared in Vogue magazine.


    A longtime activist, she started and ran a successful campaign-RABAC...”Real Americans Buy American Cars” in the late 70’s.  She started the grass roots movement because the American auto industry was in a severe slump.  Her idea was to help convince the American public to support the American car companies in their struggle against foreign imports and to save jobs. She distributed bumper stickers and gave interviews to the print and broadcast media.  At one point, a representative from the Japanese government came to interview her because they felt threatened by this movement.  Gradually the unions adopted the project, which developed into their “Buy American” campaign

    HYPOTHECATION

    in Politics

    The issuance of paper as a "legal tender" and circulating medium of exchange did not occur until 1862 during the Civil War. The Congress authorized the emission of non-interest bearing Treasury notes and declared the bills of credit to be legal tender for all debts, public and private, with the exception of taxes on imports. The notes were deemed necessary to "float the debt of the United States" for the war effort.

    Federal Open Market Committee 17 September 2015

    in Business

    Household spending and business fixed investment have been increasing moderately, and the housing sector has improved further; however, net exports have been soft. The labor market continued to improve, with solid job gains and declining unemployment. On balance, labor market indicators show that underutilization of labor resources has diminished since early this year. Inflation has continued to run below the Committee's longer-run objective, partly reflecting declines in energy prices and in prices of non-energy imports. Market-based measures of inflation compensation moved lower; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.Fed Open Market Report

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "Slavery in all but name has been the foundation of the cocoa industry in St. Those and St. Principe and in the mines of  Rand. Gin has been one of the European imports, having increased fifty percent in ten years and reaching ma total of at least twenty- five million dollars a year today. Negroes of ability have been carefully gotten rid of, disposed from authority, kept out of positions of influence, and discredited in their people's eyes, while a caste of white overseers and governing officials has appeared everywhere. Naturally, the picture is not all lurid. David Livingstone has had his successors and Europe has given Africa something of value in the beginning of education and industry. Yet the balance of iniquity is desperately large; but worse than that, it has aroused no world protest. A great Englishman, familiar with African problems for generations, says frankly today:"There does not exist any real international conscience to which you can appeal." W.E.B. DuBois The islands of São Tomé and Príncipe, situated in the equatorial Atlantic and Gulf of Guineaabout 300 and 250 kilometres (190 and 160 mi), respectively, off the northwest coast of Gabon, constitute Africa's second smallest country. Rand Mines, the South African mining house, originated as H. Ekstein & Co. in 1887 and was soon nicknamed 'The Corner House'. The founders were Alfred Beit, Hermann Ekstein and Julius Wernher. They formed Rand Mines as a financial company in 1893 to help pioneer the first deep level mines with assistance from the Rothschilds.

    A Global Business Network: Can African Americans Unite With Africans In America?

    in Women

    We have a common ancestry, but no longer speak the same languae and many times we don't follow the same culture, but African Americans (those born in America descending from generations of family lineage) and Africans in America (recent imigrants to America) have a grand opportunity to create a global business network, by importing products from Africa and selling them on the American market. Others around the globe are imitating African clothing and artifacts (China, Korea, etc.) and selling them cheaply to African Americans. African American hair care companies that once cornered the market have been bought out by the larger white owned companies such as Revlon, who promptly dominated the world market of crinkly haired people. Can we capitalize on a common heritage, recapture our connection, and create a global economy that enhances the prosperity for both African Americans and Africans in America? Mr. Symon Ogeto of the African Global Chamber of Commerce shares his views on Africa's influence on the global marketplace.
