What started as a trade agreement between 4 small market nations in the early 21st century has morphed and lurched and disguised itself into the 12 nation (and counting) behemoth that is causing record setting protest, dissent and demands from citizenry and elected officials alike around the Pacific Rim.
The Trans Pacific Partnership promises a new standard for trade agreements. Indeed. Of the 26 chapters in the framework yet to be released to the public, only a scant two have direct relation to international trade in the traditional sense. The other 24 deal with corporate entitlement, copyright terms, patent length, internet governance, environmental laws, personal information sharing and the ever-present tribunal mechanism for corporations to sue Governments secretly. Because laws that limit profit are simply "bad business".
Many things Canadians take for granted will be altered or abandoned altogether if this trojan horse is allowed inside the walls as it is now. As far as anyone can tell, that is. The secrecy surrounding these marathon negotiations are unlike anything ever seen before. Wikileaks having posted the only known leaked portions of the deal, there is no way to even know what the current text is. Apparently, the billions of people involved have no need to know. No better example than the Harper junta changing venue from Vancouver to Ottawa to avoid demonstrations. Nothing to hide here, move along.
David Christopher of OpenMedia.ca will join me to try and decipher what this monster of a treaty will do to the signatory nations, specifically Canada. Who wins and who loses. So called "free" trade has never delivered on its promises despite the spin from industries and governments alike.

In recent years, it seems that the Illinois Department of Revenue has significantly increased its collection efforts against taxpayers. One way it has done this is by initiating more audits, which usually relate to income, sales, or employment taxes. Many times as a result of these examinations, IDOR will propose significant adjustments against taxpayers that may result in substantial tax liabilities. If the taxpayers are not able to come to an acceptable resolution with their auditors, their only choice may be to contest the auditors’ findings through an administrative hearing. Because these hearings involve complex legal procedures, it is imperative that taxpayers have adequate legal representation to protect and preserve their rights and to advocate on their behalves. This Podcast with Josh Nesser of Lavelle Law will explore IDOR Hearings and offer clarity on their purpose.
Carolyn Yeager relates how Speer's personal ambition brought him ever closer to Adolf Hitler as his architect, and to become the top man of 3rd Reich armaments development. Then, practically alone among the leading National-Socialists, he turned against both after the war and the Reich were lost. The manner in which he carried out his repudiation makes for an instructive lesson. Carolyn uses the writings of Speer himself and the memoir of Hermann Giesler to reveal Speer's underlying shifting nature beneath a brilliant exterior.
A young Christian Sudanese woman, Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, was sentenced to death on Thursday by a court of law in Khartoum for marrying a Christian man. She was also sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery because her marriage to a Christian was considered invalid under Sharia law. She is eight months pregnant, and was convicted on Sunday and given three days to return to Islam. When she appeared in court on Thursday, the judge addressed her by her Moslem name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah, but she replied that she is a Christian.

Ela está grávida de oito meses, e foi condenada no domingo e deram-lhe três dias para voltar ao islamismo. Quando ela apareceu no tribunal na quinta-feira, o juiz dirigiu-se a ela pelo seu nome muçulmano, Al- Hadi Adraf Mohammed Abdullah, mas ela respondeu que é cristã.

With Carolyn Yeager. Carolyn's guest is Margaret Huffstickler, a Germanophile and singer who tells us about the most popular song of WWII, Lili Marleen, and how English translations don't do it justice. We listen to 3 versions of the song.
We also discuss women's role in Nationalism; men who don't afford women the dignity they deserve; and the outstanding accomplishments of some women who remained childless all their lives.
Also on the table is Russia's new law, signed by Putin today, that provides prison sentences for denial that the Nuremberg Tribunal lies and false propaganda findings are true and real history.
LOST operates under the assumption that any minerals in the ocean floor constitute the “common heritage” of all mankind — and therefore cannot be the property of any one individual, company, or nation. This treaty is an affront to American national sovereignty. It would give the United Nations authority over much of the world’s oceans, including the power to regulate and tax deep-sea mining, and redistribute the proceeds to Third World governments. Moreover, its “hortatory language” provisions are a loaded weapon that activist trial lawyers could easily wield to force the U.S. to adopt laws that the American people’s elected representatives otherwise would not.
LOST threatens U. S. sovereignty. Not just a little or around the edges, but fundamentally. Once the U. S. became a party to the treaty, any number of issues could be adjudicated by a LOST tribunal. It is not clear what the limits are on the issues that could be taken up by LOST. Jurisdiction over anything that affects the oceans directly or indirectly could be asserted. The majority of members of the tribunal adjudicating any particular issue are almost certainly going to be hostile to U. S. interests. Tribunal decisions cannot be appealed. Unlike every other country in the world, those decisions could be enforced in U. S. federal courts against the federal government.
National sovereignty: The treaty creates a new UN agency with its own dispute resolution tribunal. However, should the US stop its current compliance with the US-negotiated laws of the Convention, the U.S. could not be taken to the Law of the Sea Tribunal since the U.S. has indicated that it would choose binding arbitration rather than availing itself of the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea. Taxation: The license fees and taxes levied on economic activities in the deep seabed Area by the ISA would be, in effect, a form of ‘taxation without representation’
On this show we joined forces with "Exopolitics" host Alfred Lambrenont Webre to interview Kevin Annett. Kevin at the moment in Spain working for the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, brings us an update on the ongoing trial in Brussels with the International Common Law Court of Justice. Eye witnesses are beginning to come out from all over the world to verify claims of crimes against humanity specific to the trail. Listen to what is happening in Brussels and about the third and final exorcism that took place in the Netherlands.
Welcome back my brothers and sisters! I am continuing the Adult Years of Tribunal Consciousness, this show referencing my 17 year marriage...Sharing more stories of my life ingrained with the tribunal consciousness that was taught to me since I was born, from family, friends, media and of course, the Church...How I dealt and related within my marriage towards my husband and extended families, including friends, neighbors and relatives. Relating stories so that you may see yourself in relation to myself and the choices we all made in our lives, and that nothing happened to us. It was ourselves doing it to ourselves by the choices we made...Yup-that word again-self-responsibility...Tough pill to swallow, but once it goes down, there is light at the end of the tunnel...Always, in peace and love for the healing of humanity...

TOPIC: Charles Onana : La France dans la terreur rwandaise, 20 Ans du Genocide Rwandais
Le 6 avril 1994, un avion Falcon 50 transportant deux chefs d’Etat africains, leurs collaborateurs et trois Français membres de l’équipage, est abattu par un missile SAM 16 au-dessus de l’aéroport de Kigali. L’ONU reconnaît que cet attentat est l’élément déclencheur des massacres atroces qui se vont se commettre dans tout le Rwanda. Or, depuis 20 ans, cet acte terroriste reste impuni. Le Tribunal Pénal International pour le Rwanda (TPIR), censé juger tous les crimes commis en 1994, a décidé d'écarter l’attentat des procès. Pourquoi ?
En 2002, Charles Onana révélait la responsabilité de l’actuel président rwandais Paul Kagame et d'un commando de la rébellion tutsi dans cet attentat. Kagame et l'Etat rwandais avaient attaqué le journaliste en diffamation avant de retirer leurs plaintes devant les preuves et les témoins présentés par l’auteur. Depuis, des membres éminents de la rébellion tutsi, proches de Kagame, ont exprimé publiquement leur volonté d’apporter des preuves de l’implication de Kagame dans l’attentat à la justice française. Personne n’a souhaité les entendre. Pourquoi ?
Certains d’entre eux ont été assassinés ou victimes de tentatives d’assassinat, à l’instar de Patrick Karegeya, ancien chef des renseignements extérieurs du Rwanda dont le corps a été retrouvé le 1er janvier 2014 dans un hôtel de Johannesburg.
