It's called the "Trans Pacific Partnership" and it will make the job destroying NAFTA seem tame by comparison.
TPP: Corporate Power Tool of the 1%While you're sitting on your lard asses, eating GMO potato chips by the bucket and drinking tankers of body destroying chemical soda, your government or what's left of it, is being sold to the highest bidder.
Have you heard? The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement is a stealthy policy being pressed by corporate America, a dream of the 1 percent, that in one blow could:
Offshore millions of American jobs, free the banksters from oversight, ban Buy America policies needed to create green jobs and rebuild our economy, decrease access to medicine, flood the U.S. with unsafe food and products and empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards.
Closed-door talks are on-going between the U.S. and Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam; with countries like Japan and China potentially joining later. 600 corporate advisors have access to the text, while the public, Members of Congress, journalists, and civil society are excluded. And so far what we know about what's in there is very scary!
More Power to Corporations to Attack Nations
Extreme Foreign Investor Rights & Private Enforcement Would Promote Offshoring, Attacks Against Our Laws
Under the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) "free trade" agreement, foreign firms would gain an array of privileges:
Rights to acquire land, natural resources, factories without government review
Risks and costs of offshoring to low wage countries eliminated
Special guaranteed “minimum standard of treatment” for relocating firms
Compensation for loss of “expected future profits” from health, labor environmental, laws (indirect or “regulatory” takings compensation)
Right to move capital without limits
New rights cover vast definition of investment: intellectual property, permits, derivatives
Ban performance requirements, domestic content rules. Absolute ban, not only when applied to investors from signatory countries
But don't worry, keep your eyes on the Talmud Vision set and your asses on the edge of your couch, waiting nervously for that really important moment you want to see, the outcome of some trial in Florida.
