In this all-new Off the Grid, I discuss why the Obama Administration has been so secretive about the terms of the Trans Pacific Partnership. Watch below to find out which four chapters of the TPP have been released by Wikileaks, and to get details about the $100,000 bounty Julian Assange is offering to whoever releases the remaining chapters of this controversial deal.
What do you vigilant viewers think? Should the public be allowed to see terms from the deal that will determine 40% of the global economy?

Here in Australia we picked up that 'corporations can sue governments' clause about 10 years ago with some free trade agreement that went through. I was upset about it too at the time as now governments have to spent more money in court.
What has transpired is that 'government can also sue corporations'. The anti smoking lobby has taxed the hell out of cigarettes and taken away all of their branding. The government beat the cigarette corporations really bad in court. The result of this legislation it that it can provide the government with more teeth in addressing corporate operations.

Of course they should see it and if it were up to me vote on it.
But they’ll keep it hidden because it's full of all kinds of boondoggles to the corporations.
They will find a way to get this things passed even if people have to be hurt in secret...that we'll never know about
They will and are bribing, threatening, and using all kinds of ways to get this through
Their ruthless and have Obama by the proverbial balls
And believe me if they don't people will be punished!
