How many wrong decisions can one nation endure? Every week there's a new story that shows a shocking lack in ethics or judgement on the part of the government. It’s open season on the environment, on science, the rights of veterans, it shames us all. Cuts to investigative journalism by most media outlets are allowing many stories to remain under-covered or untold altogether. Media consolidation has meant there are fewer voices reporting, with ever-tightening restrictions on what they can say. This is a critical threat to democracy, and it's the principal motivation for this film. Independent voices must pick up the slack.
- The tradition of being at the forefront of scientific research and development, critical to the nation's properity, has been all but abandoned. Our prowess and innovation has been flushed because scientifc research is revealing the effects of destructive policies.
- Since 2006 there has been an erosion of funding for veterans. The closure of 9 offices has resulted in having to drive for as long as eight hours to receive support. Lump sum payments have replaced life-long pensions, leaving veterans with less.
- The Harper Government has spent over 40 million dollars on TV ads promoting the oilsands. They fail to mention NAFTA is investigating how Canada is ignoring its own environmental laws. Responsible development is crucial for prosperity, but allowing oil giants to pollute without limit is leading to tragic results.
"Not In Our Name" (NION) will explore the axis of Industry, Media and Government, which prioritizes corporate interests over the peoples' interests. NION will show similar tactics around the world. The footage will directly contrast the pristine beauty of Canada with the damage that has been caused by de-regulated industry. We will work as hard as your contributions will allow. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1916096034/not-in-our-name
We will look at important things that happened on this day in history:
1941: President FDR asks Congress for a Declaration of War;
1980: John Lennon is shot in NY City;
1993: President Clinton signs NAFTA.
We will also look at the 2014 KansasSenate race plus the new Secretary of Defense nomineee.

CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
11/14/2013 - Live 5pm PST/8pm EST Join hosts Karece and Kimberly. We will discuss the continued war on food - the quickest way to create chaos; we'll talk about big agriculture and the EBT 'glitch'. We'll also discuss free trade agreements and the recent very secretive TPP and it's comparison to NAFTA. We'll also talk a bit about anti-Illuminati in the music industry.
Wednesday, November 19, 6pm EST: Due to the profound importance of a what is called a trade agreement being negotiated in secrecy by heads of state of some 11 countries world-wide and the political, economic and jurisdictional implications of this, I am convening another Round Table this week on the subject of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, (TPP).
Most people, even educated and politically attentive, don’t know about the TPP or what it’s about or its implications, which is why we’re doing a third show on this.
In short, what is being called a ‘trade agreement’ such as NAFTA and others, is more accurately a political coup d’etat through which a corporate advisory counsel’s decision-making would have authority over sovereign nation’s democratically elected officials, e.g., Congresses, Parliaments, Prime Ministers and Presidents. Sovereign nations could be sued for profits which were projected by a given company’s accounting departments but not realized (for any number of reasons, including inferior product, service or not finding the assumed presence of natural resources in a given location).
Please tune in and post the link of this and last week’s show in all of your social media and lists. Here’s the link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/abetterworld/2014/11/12/rocky-anderson-gerald-celente-kali-katt-on-the-trans-pacific-partnership.
Joining in discussion with Mitchell is Arthur Stamoulis, Director of the Citizen’s Trade Campaign, and another of his colleagues.
In December 2012, Mitchell interviewed Mitch Jones of Food & Water Watch on the TPP.

Allowing Mexican trucks to operate through out the United States will cost thousands of American drivers to lose their jobs. Mexican trucks are unsafe and will wreak havoc on U. S. public roads and highways. Mexican truck drivers will not comply with the high safety standards of the United States and by fully opening the U. S. border to Mexico's trucks, we are opening the flood gate to incoming drug traffickers and a higher profile for criminal activity. These are just a few of many of thousands of comments by drivers across America voicing their concerns over new NAFTA negotiations which would open the U. S. border to Mexican trucks. What is the truth when it comes to the NAFTA and Mexico agreement? Do these statements hold up against documented facts or are they simply a measurement to fear of the unknown?
Remember when the Canada/US Free Trade Agreement came along? It was all over the media, politicians of the day gave extensive time and effort to explain how they saw it to Canadians. It was the core issue of a Federal election. The majority Government victory for Brian Mulroney paved the passing of the pact. Then it became NAFTA with the inclusion of Mexico. Most of us can certainly remember some of the issues from that time, and they still go on.
Those days of relative "transparency" are long gone. The Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC) of Emperor Harper doesn't believe in telling Canadians what all these "trade" deals really mean. Canada/China FIPA. TPP. And now, CETA, Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. With the 28 member European Union. Despite the warm fuzzies from Emperor about this being a "done deal", it is nowhere near that. The Agreement text is out there, whether it was meant to be or not. And it's not that "upside" for Canada.
Scott Harris is the Trade Campaigner with the Council of Canadians, Canada’s largest citizens’ organization. He has been active for over a decade in the anti-globalization movement, organizing around the MAI in the late-90s, the WTO ministerial in Seattle in 1999, the FTAA meetings in Quebec City in 2001, the Kananaskis meeting of the G8 in 2002 and the G20 Summit in Toronto. Prior to his position as trade campaigner, Scott was the Council of Canadians’ Prairies-NWT Regional Organizer, and he has also worked in the labour movement with the Alberta Federation of Labour and the Alberta Workers Health Centre and in international solidarity through the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation. He has had the distinct pleasure of being tear gassed by security forces in three different countries.
I will be joined by Scott and we will examine this deal in detail. There is much that Canadians need to know about it.
The Lunatics(Republicans) are running the Assylum(Capitol Hill). The Tea Party Republicans are holding America hostage as infrastructure, public education, the elderly, War Veterans, the Middle Class and Working Class Families are being ignored daily. The president has accomplished some 80% of his goals (according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office) even without Republican blocking and trying to sabotage his efforts of moving America forward. Why? We all know why. There has been steady economic growth with record job creation since his tenure began, Wall Street is booming, hope and change is happening slowly but surely.
What about the president signing into law the Trans-Atlantic Trading Partnership (TPP) Agreement thisDecember if the U.S. Congress fast tracks it? The TPP Agreement is NAFTA on steroids!
What will it take for the American Voter to wake up and smell the collective Republican bullshit? Time to act America! Vote in your State Primaries for the real Democrats running in them and get ready to vote out every Republican from office this November 4th. From Local to Statewide to the Federal Level. This blocking and harassing of our President is disgusting and disrespectful. Tell us what's on your mind as we discuss raw politics from State to State. Let's break it down in lay man's terms for the average a political person can understand why it is important to vote this November. When you call in, please say your first name and where you are calling from?
THIS IS KITCHEN POLITICS 123 RADIO SHOW with DAVE & LORI:
MOTTO: "We're Not Anti-Social, Just Anti-Stupid---LET'S GET COOKIN'!"
Regulatory expert, Richard Wilson discusses the MCSAC meeting recently held in Washington, D.C., on the NAFTA cross border trucking agreement. The Teamsters and Public Citizen have filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration seeking to block the program. We'll take an insider look at the NAFTA Mexico agreement and why Mexican carriers are saying that they do not want American or Domiciled carriers in Mexico.
Since its conception in 1993 and implementation in 1994, NAFTA has resulted in the loss of millions of jobs for U.S. workers. Although U.S. domestic exports to its NAFTA partners have increased, NAFTA has led to job losses in all 50 states. Allen and co-host Barry Szczucki, takes a hard look at NAFTA and its future effects on the U.S. trucking industry.
