“I just met with myself and decided to establish The Naked TPP Authority. I gave it primacy over all other negotiating bodies, and by its declaration, the full text of the TPP must be published for the whole world to see, for two years, before any further votes take place.” Jon Rappoport. (He wrote The Matrix series, so he surely is a higher authority.)
The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) seems to be a dastardly secret illusion trick. Watch a magician do the three cups and balls trick. After a few swishes, you think you know where the ball is, but when that cup is lifted – it is no longer there.
Maybe this is the TPP. At this stage we have been told; watch these jobs – watch – keep watching – you see, more jobs. But after a swish and a little swapping, maybe we will have lost the prize, and governments will be subordinate to elite multinationals.
The TPP is also not a simple sleight of hand, it has been secretly crafted by corporate specialists for seven years. And even now the document is under lock and key – with the media and public barred.
Breitbart News reported on 13 May: “Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)… went inside the secret room inside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday morning to read the TPP text and told Breitbart News exclusively afterwards that he believes President Barack Obama should make it public now.” Paul was not even sure whether the 800 pages he read was the final document or just a draft.
Governments are obviously not in control of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). In fact, an infowars article entitled “Corporate Gods: Obama, Remember Why We Hired You: Ram the TPP Therough”, states:
“Elite mega-corporations all over the world, the Council on Foreign Relations (Rockefeller), the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission (Rockefeller) want the TPP to be ratified by the 12 member nations. They really want it. They insist on it. …he (Obama) was put into office to bring this treaty to fruition. Failure is not an option.”
US Senate advances TPP legislation
“Following days of obstruction from legislators in President Barack Obama’s own Democratic Party, the US Senate has advanced legislation allowing him to swiftly finalise a landmark Pacific trade pact.
The 65 to 33 vote marked a victory for the White House and free-trade Republicans who had united in an effort to press ahead with Obama’s biggest domestic legislative priority in the remaining 20 months of his presidency…”
Thursday’s vote opened debate on the “fast track” process which would allow Obama – and his successor – to present trade agreements for a yes-or-no vote, preventing lawmakers from making any changes. Who would want that?
Jon Rappoport in an artilce entitled, “What law says the text of the TPP must remain secret?” makes a crucial point:
“It seems like a case of mass hypnosis. People claiming they can’t say what’s in the TPP trade agreement. And mainstream media accept this premise… Under what authority?”. And
“If there is a US law forbidding disclosure, name the law.” (my emphasis)
And this applies, too, in Australia. Why is this TPP being kept secret. At this stage we can guess that:
- The carrot is jobs, jobs and more jobs, and
- One stick is the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).
In other words, the TPP will (allegedly) allow foreign investors and multinationals to sue governments if their investments are ‘harmed’ by a change in a law or policy, even if that law or policy is designed to protect public health or the environment. It has the potential to harm Australia.
