JFK has famously said that, "The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oathes, and to secret proceedings." And there is a reason that the American people are opposed to our rulers operating in secrecy. This is because evil can only operate in secrecy. So why has the Trans-Pacific Parnership been created behind closed doors? Why has the TPP been so effectively hidden from the American people? One could only assume that the reason the TPP has been hidden from the American people is because it will not be in our favor.
So What is the TPP?
James Corbett has decribed the TPP as, "The TPP is a so-called “free trade agreement” that is the largest such deal since NAFTA. If ratified it will cover 12 countries, impacting over 400 million people and nearly 40% of the world’s GDP. Member nations of the TPP negotiations include Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam"
The TPP will effect everything from the agricultural industry, the auto industry, wildlife preservation, and it will even affect how we will share files online. The American people are not even able to read the TPP which is especially concerning since the TPP is so expansive. The TPP will affect our lives, but we are no even permitted to read the document?
In Corbett's Article on the TPP he goes on to address who wins and who loses in regards to the TPP trade agreement, "In a word: business. No, not mom and pop corner store business, big multinational corporate business. But you probably could have guessed as much already. After all, there’s a reason the US Business Coalition for TPP existed, let alone spent over $1.1 million buying off Congressmen ahead of the “Fast Track” trade authority vote earlier this year."
By now you can most likely see who loses: the people. Corbett makes the point that, "Who loses? Pretty much everyone else. That’s why you’ll see an extraordinary range of people opposed to this deal, from the mainstream left (Hillary Clinton) and the mainstream right (Mike Huckabee) to the controlled “alternative” left (Noam Chomsky) and the controlled “alternative” right (The New American) to libertarians and environmental groups and trade unions and basically everyone who isn’t in favor of crony capitalism. Only a truly bad deal could bring together such a disparate bunch. And this deal is bad."

And as bad as it is and as much as Hillary and the other "candidates" posture to make themselves appear to oppose it, it will doubtless be passed and signed into law.........probably when no one's listening. It will take a significantly big notch out of US National Sovereignty and could well serve as the beginning of the end of many Constitutional rights.

The only potential silver lining to this deal may be that as the US Federal government cedes more sovereignty to the Globalists, the individual States may see an opportunity to assert more authority. There's already an Article V Convention of States movement going on, although I haven't spent much time researching it. See:

I'm thinking it stands more of a chance of starting war than moslums do.

Excellent opening quote. Welcome.

Corbet is very good - love his stuff - don't always agree - but he does do his homework.
