Barack Oba­ma is secret­ly nego­ti­at­ing the largest inter­na­tion­al trade agree­ment in his­to­ry, and the main­stream media in the Unit­ed States is almost com­plete­ly ignor­ing it.  If this treaty is adopt­ed, it will be the most impor­tant step toward a one world eco­nom­ic sys­tem that we have ever seen.  The name of this treaty is “the Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship”, and the text of the treaty is so close­ly guard­ed that not even mem­bers of Con­gress know what is in it.
Right now, there are 12 coun­tries that are part of the nego­ti­a­tions: the Unit­ed States, Cana­da, Aus­tralia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mex­i­co, New Zealand, Peru, Sin­ga­pore and Viet­nam.  These nations have a com­bined pop­u­la­tion of 792 mil­lion peo­ple and account for an astound­ing 40 per­cent of the glob­al econ­o­my.  And it is hoped that the EU, Chi­na and India will even­tu­al­ly join as well.  This is poten­tial­ly the most dan­ger­ous eco­nom­ic treaty of our life­times, and yet there is very lit­tle polit­i­cal debate about it in this country.

Even though Con­gress is not being allowed to see what is in the treaty, Barack Oba­ma wants Con­gress to give him fast track nego­ti­at­ing author­i­ty.  What that means is that Con­gress would essen­tial­ly trust Oba­ma to nego­ti­ate a good treaty for us.  Con­gress could vote the treaty up or down, but would not be able to amend or fil­i­buster it.

Of course now the Repub­li­cans con­trol both hous­es of Con­gress.  If they are fool­ish enough to blind­ly give Barack Oba­ma so much pow­er, they should all imme­di­ate­ly resign.

And it is crit­i­cal that peo­ple under­stand that this is not just an eco­nom­ic treaty.  It is basi­cal­ly a gigan­tic end run around Con­gress.  Thanks to leaks, we have learned that so many of the things that Oba­ma has deeply want­ed for years are in this treaty.  If adopt­ed, this treaty will fun­da­men­tal­ly change our laws regard­ing Inter­net free­dom, health­care, copy­right and patent pro­tec­tion, food safe­ty, envi­ron­men­tal stan­dards, civ­il lib­er­ties and so much more.  This treaty includes many of the rules that alarmed Inter­net activists so much when SOPA was being debat­ed, it would essen­tial­ly ban all “Buy Amer­i­can” laws, it would give Wall Street banks much more free­dom to trade risky deriv­a­tives and it would force even more domes­tic man­u­fac­tur­ing offshore.

In oth­er words, it is the treaty from hell.

In addi­tion to impos­ing Oba­ma’s vision for the world on 40 per­cent of the glob­al pop­u­la­tion, it is also being described as a “Christ­mas wish-list for major cor­po­ra­tions”.  Of the 29 chap­ters in the treaty, only five of them actu­al­ly deal with eco­nom­ic issues.  The rest of the treaty deals with a whole host of oth­er issues of great impor­tance to the glob­al elite.

The fol­low­ing list of issues addressed by this treaty is from a Malaysian news source

• domes­tic court deci­sions and inter­na­tion­al legal stan­dards (e.g., over­rid­ing domes­tic laws on both trade and non­trade mat­ters, for­eign investors’ right to sue gov­ern­ments in inter­na­tion­al tri­bunals that would over­rule the nation­al sovereignty)

• envi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tions (e.g., nuclear ener­gy, pol­lu­tion, sustainability)

• finan­cial dereg­u­la­tion (e.g., more pow­er and priv­i­leges to the bankers and financiers)

• food safe­ty (e.g., low­er­ing food self-suf­fi­cien­cy, pro­hi­bi­tion of manda­to­ry label­ing of genet­i­cal­ly mod­i­fied prod­ucts, or bovine spongi­form encephalopa­thy (BSE) or mad cow disease)

• Gov­ern­ment pro­cure­ment (e.g., no more buy local­ly produced/grown)

• Inter­net free­dom (e.g., mon­i­tor­ing and polic­ing user activity)

• labour (e.g., wel­fare reg­u­la­tion, work­place safe­ty, relo­cat­ing domes­tic jobs abroad)

• patent pro­tec­tion, copy­rights (e.g., decrease access to afford­able medicine)

• pub­lic access to essen­tial ser­vices may be restrict­ed due to invest­ment rules (e.g., water, elec­tric­i­ty, and gas)

Why can’t we get this type of report­ing in the Unit­ed States?

And if this treaty is ulti­mate­ly approved by Con­gress, we will essen­tial­ly be stuck with it forever.

This treaty is writ­ten in such a way that the Unit­ed States will be per­ma­nent­ly bound by all of the pro­vi­sions and will nev­er be able to alter them unless all of the oth­er coun­tries agree.

Are you start­ing to under­stand why this treaty is so dangerous?

This treaty is the key to Oba­ma’s “lega­cy”.  He wants to impose his will upon 40 per­cent of the glob­al pop­u­la­tion in a way that will nev­er be able to be overturned.

Of course Oba­ma is tout­ing this treaty as the path to eco­nom­ic recov­ery.  He promis­es that it will great­ly increase glob­al trade, decrease tar­iffs and cre­ate more jobs for Amer­i­can workers.

But instead, it would be a major step toward destroy­ing what is left of the U.S. economy.

Over the past sev­er­al decades, every time a major trade agree­ment has been signed we have seen even more good jobs leave the Unit­ed States.

And it does­n’t take a genius to fig­ure out why this is hap­pen­ing.  If cor­po­ra­tions can move jobs to the oth­er side of the plan­et to nations where it is legal to pay slave labor wages, they will make larg­er profits.

Just think about it.  If you were run­ning a cor­po­ra­tion and you had the choice of pay­ing work­ers ten dol­lars an hour or one dol­lar an hour, which would you choose?

Plus there are so many oth­er costs, tax­es and paper­work has­sles when you deal with Amer­i­can work­ers.  For exam­ple, big cor­po­ra­tions will not have to pro­vide Oba­macare for their for­eign work­ers.  That alone will rep­re­sent a huge savings.

Any basic course in eco­nom­ics will teach you that labor flows from mar­kets where labor costs are high to mar­kets where labor costs are low­er.  And at this point it costs less to make almost every­thing over­seas.  As a result, we have already lost mil­lions upon mil­lions of good jobs, and count­less small and mid-size U.S. com­pa­nies have been forced to shut down because they can­not com­pete with for­eign manufacturers.

Lat­er this month, con­sumers will flock to retail stores for “Black Fri­day” deals.  But if you look care­ful­ly at those prod­ucts, you will find that almost all of them are made over­seas.  We buy far, far more from the rest of the world than they buy from us, and that is a recipe for nation­al eco­nom­ic sui­cide.

We con­sume far more wealth that we pro­duce, and any­one with half a brain can see that is not sus­tain­able in the long run.  The only way that we have been able to main­tain our high stan­dard of liv­ing is by going into insane amounts of debt.  We are cur­rent­ly liv­ing in the largest debt bub­ble in the his­to­ry of the plan­et, and at some point the par­ty is going to end.

Please share this arti­cle with as many peo­ple as you can.  We need to inform peo­ple about what Oba­ma is try­ing to do.

If Oba­ma is suc­cess­ful in ram­ming this secret treaty through, it is going to do incal­cu­la­ble dam­age to what is left of the once great U.S. economy.
