The new GeoPolitical war. Time to read The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
This is here because TPP will be absolutely devastating to anything to do with the environment. It will have no protections, no global representation, no hope. This is the most grand plan from the Empire to date. It is horrendous. You don’t even have to be an environmentalist to care, this touches everyone. Are you a patriot, then that alone is enough to make you really mad about it.
Don’t believe the bit about how secret the discussion are?
First hand explanation of how TTIP is being handled from MEP Luke Flanagan.
That these things going on in such secrecy is really despicable. GANGSTERS INDEED.
A few years ago Hillary Clinton called the deal the “gold standard”. As is the norm with her, she’s changed many talking points during the primaries as she latches on to Bernie’s talking points in order to keep up. And she lied to Anderson Cooper when he called her on it, telling him she’d hoped it’d be the gold standard but transcripts of her speech to Techport in Australia make clear she defines it as the standard.
Trump has said the TPP deals are “insanity” but as a mega business man they’d help him also. For example, he could have sued Scottland for all the access he wanted for his golf course(s) there.
Bernie of course has always spoken out against TPP.
Here is a tiny example of why it’s so bad for the environment – after BP when the USA stopped granting drilling permits everyone including BP could have sued. Your tax dollars go to pay for all those defense hours.
Do some of your own searching and see what you find on the TPP agreements.
