SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Darrell Castle talks about President Obama’s efforts to get Fast Track Authority for the 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.
The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is still alive.
On Tuesday (06/23/2015), the Senate will hold a cloture vote to suspend further debate on giving Obama Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or fast track ability to move the TPP forward.
Ahead of tomorrow morning's fast-track vote, Sen. Jeff Sessions sent a letter to fellow Republicans on the dangers of this massive so-called trade compact.
If you're concerned with America's sovereignty, you should be concerned with this legislation.

The trade rules of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership between the United States and 11 Asian nations would cover nearly 40 percent of the world economy — but don’t ask what they are. Access to the text of the proposed deal is highly restricted. But you don't need to read it, even if available.

Our guests today: Elizabeth Warren is a Regional Organizer for MoveOn.org, based in Southern California. As coordinator for MoveOn's national TPP team she connects allies with a network of MoveOn councils working to educate the public about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement. The group's aim is to make sure details of proposed trade agreements get a public hearing and debate, by urging Congress to say no to the president's request for fast track, aka trade promotion authority. Liz began her career as a journalist and came to political activism late, after stints as a newspaper columnist, magazine editor, and advertising copywriter. She did a 12-year stretch as a corporate publicist, and still has the BS decoder-ring, which comes in handy during interactions with politicians. When not organizing, she does online editing, often blogs, and still writes for magazines, occasionally about politics, but usually about other subjects. Liz was born in New York and educated in the Midwest. In 1997 she moved to California, where she married and conveniently ended up with a memorable name. Andrea Miller was the 2008 Congressional Candidate for the 4th District. Currently she is Deputy Field Director for PDA and Co-State Coordinator for PDA Virginia. Since 2008 Andrea has been very active on the ERA both in Virginia and nationally. Andrea is one of the leaders of PDA's ERA 3 State Strategy team
Shrouded in secrecy, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is making both members of Congress and the general public uneasy.
While President Obama claims that the TPP will benefit American workers, critics say the agreement will create a corporate dictatorship.
More recently, Infowars reported that Gun Owners of America warned that the TPP might be a backdoor approach to gun control.

The Trans Pacific Partnership is a secret trade deal that will among other things, nullify national laws regarding food safety and GMO labeling laws and bans. While the US Congress wastes time arguing over health care websites, our demcracy and sovereignty as a nation is being negotiated away.

Wednesday, Dec 25, 6pm EST: Today’s show will focus on an incredibly important international agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty, which, according to those who have seen the few parts that have become known, is just about everything but a treaty on trade but largely one about jurisdic-tion over existing governments and their bodies of law.
To discuss this in some depth for A Better World’s audience, is Mitchell’s guest today, Mitch Jones, Director of the Common Resources Program at Food & Water Watch.
Mitch manages the organization’s campaigns on nutrient trading regimes, water markets and pricing, municipal water infrastructure funding, catch share fisheries management programs, and open ocean aquaculture. He was previously the Director of the Fish Program at Food & Water Watch.
Mitch also worked as the Senior Legislative and Policy Analyst for Food & Water Watch‘s Water Program. Prior to joining Food & Water Watch, he worked at the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, focusing on issues related to food safety and renewable fuel policy. He has appeared on CNBC, Al Jazeera English, and various radio stations across America. He holds a B.A. in history and philosophy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a M.A.L.A. from St. John’s College, Santa Fe.
