• New Corporate Powers In Secret Trade Deal

    "The Obama administration appears to have almost no international support for controversial new trade standards that would grant radical new political powers to corporations, increase the cost of prescription medications and restrict bank regulation, according to two internal memos obtained by The Huffington Post. The memos, which come from a government involved in the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade negotiations, detail continued disputes in the talks over the deal. The documents reveal broad disagreement over a host of key positions, and general skepticism that an agreement can be reached by year-end. The Obama administration has urged countries to reach a deal by New Year's Day, though there is no technical deadline...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. ...

  • The truth behind the secret TTIP trade deal

    The Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (or TTIP) is called a "trade treaty". But if agreed, the TTIP would actually hand corporations the power to overturn democratically decided laws, on everything from environmental protections to food safety, through a system of regulatory cooperation and secret courts that only corporations would have access to.

    A US-led trade deal is currently being negotiated that could increase the price of prescription drugs, weaken financial regulations and even allow partner countries to challenge American laws. But few know its substance. The pact, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is deliberately shrouded in secrecy, a trade deal powerful people, including President Obama, don't want you to know about. Over 130 Members of Congress have asked the White House for more transparency about the negotiations and were essentially told to go fly a kite. While most of us are in the dark about the contents of the deal, which Obama aims to seal by year end, corporate lobbyists are in the know about what it contains. And some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, inc...

The Trans-Pacific Partnership encompasses 12 Pacific Rim nations, including the United States, and 40 percent of the world’s economy. Opponents say it will benefit corporations at the expense of health, the environment, free speech and labor rights.

Bernie Sanders, an Independent from Vermont. Problem is, we have no real way of knowing. The trade agreement — one of the biggest in American history — is classified.

Both have written extensively about the TPP and tell Bill the pact actually has very little to do with free trade. Instead, says Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, "This really is a deal that's being negotiated by corporations for corporations and any benefit it provides to the bulk of the population of this country will be purely incidental."

LISTEN TO FULL PODCAST EPISODE ONLINE... http://ftmdaily.com/ftm-radio-show/podcast-exposing-obamas-secretive-free-trade-deal/ This is an excerpt from the Follow the Money Weekly podcast hosted each week by economist and author, Jerry Robinson. ++++++++++++ If Americans knew what was inside the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Congress would never be able to pass it… That’s why Washington has fought for years to cloak the Trans-Pacific Partnership in secrecy. Many Congressmen are still not permitted to view the bill, which is currently being written by more than 600 American and foreign corporate executives. The little that we do know about the TPP has come through Wikileaks, which has published portions of the working text. What those few snippets contain is enough for most liberty-minded Americans to know that the TPP is not only bad for our economy, it’s bad for our liberties. The TPP is a Trojan Horse filled with a shocking bonanza of special rights and privileges for corporations that leaves America’s middle class and working poor on the hook for the bill. But because the TPP is being written and debated in private, the American people, and even our own elected officials, have been restricted from seeing the details. Meanwhile, the corporate-controlled media has played right along with the goals of big business to keep reporting on one of the comprehensive trade agreements in American history to an absolute minimum. This keeps the average American in the dark, which is exactly where Washington, and its corporate sponsors want them. But as one U.S. Supreme Court once noted: Sunlight is one the best of disinfectants. Keep reading at link below.

April 2, 2017 "The Climate Cost of Free Trade", A Trade Justice Alliance Webinar Featuring 1:00 Ben Lilliston, Director of Corporate Strategies and Climate Change, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy 16:40 Anthony Torres, Associate Campaign Representative, Sierra Club's Responsible Trade Program 26:45 Q&A with Ben and Anthony 40:30 Nancy Price, Co-Chair, The Alliance for Democracy 1:08:45 Q&A with Nancy 1:20:45 Adam Weissman, Director, Global Justice for Animals and the Environment The Trump Administration has promised to re-negotiate existing trade deals, like the North American Free Trade Agreement, change the way the U.S. interacts with the World Trade Organization, and start to negotiate bi-lateral (one-on-one) trade deals with other countries. This new era of trade negotiations will have direct impacts on greenhouse gas emissions and how we respond to climate change. Ben Lilliston will look at how the Trump Administration views trade and climate change, and outline key upcoming moments for advocacy. Anthony Torres will discuss the Sierra Club's new climate-friendly model of trade. This is just one plank of a broader trade platform that supporters workers, healthy communities, and our planet. Rather than Mexico vs the US, the corporate trade agenda and NAFTA have been about corporations vs the rest of us. Our movement defeated the TPP, now we have to build a progressive vision that rejects both the failed status quo and Trump's false solutions. As NAFTA renegotiation approaches, we must ensure that Trump's nationalist approach doesn't implement an even worse corporate power grab; rather, we will fight for a progressive vision for trade that uplifts people and the planet. Nancy Price will explain the 2010 Global Compact and corporate capture of the UN and the implication for realization of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. In brief, this corporate influence will lead to greater privatization and impact climate. She will present this as a process that parallels the free trade regime. She will include briefly Trump's creation of the new White House Office of Innovation Adam Weissman will address animal agribusiness' plans to use trade policy for market expansion in the Trump era and why this threatens global climate. https://www.facebook.com/Iowa99Media Iowa99Media@gmail.com

For decades, politicians have supported trade agreements which have cost us millions of decent paying jobs as corporate America shuts down plants here and moves to low-wage countries. As president, my trade policies will break that cycle of agreements which enrich at the expense of the working people of this country. --------- ★ Join the political revolution at www.berniesanders.com ★ Connect with Bernie: Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/berniesanders/ Twitter → https://twitter.com/berniesanders Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/berniesanders/ Tumblr → http://berniesanders.tumblr.com/ Snapchat → bernie.sanders ★ https://connect.berniesanders.com → The campaign’s official social media organizing tool ★ About Bernie: Bernie Sanders is a Democratic candidate for President of the United States. He is serving his second term in the U.S. Senate after winning re-election in 2012 with 71 percent of the vote. Sanders previously served as mayor of Vermont’s largest city for eight years before defeating an incumbent Republican to be the sole congressperson for the state in the U.S. House of Representatives. He lives in Burlington, Vermont with his wife Jane and has four children and seven grandchildren. Bernard “Bernie” Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York, to immigrant parents and grew up in a small, rent-controlled apartment. His father came to the United States from Poland at the age of 17 without much money or a formal education. While attending the University of Chicago, a 20-year-old Sanders led students in a multi-week sit-in to oppose segregation in off-campus housing owned by the university as a Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) officer. In August of 1963, Sanders took an overnight bus as an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to hear Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech firsthand at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. After graduation, Bernie moved to Vermont where he worked as a carpenter and documentary filmmaker. In 1981, he was elected as mayor of Burlington as an Independent by a mere 10 votes, shocking the city’s political establishment by defeating a six-term, local machine mayor. In 1983, Bernie was re-elected by a 21 point margin with a record amount of voter turnout. Under his administration, the city made major strides in affordable housing, progressive taxation, environmental protection, child care, women’s rights, youth programs and the arts. In 1990, Sanders was elected to the House of Representatives as the first Independent in 40 years and joined the Democratic caucus. He was re-elected for eight terms, during which he voted against the deregulation of Wall Street, the Patriot Act, and the invasion of Iraq. In 2006, Sanders defeated the richest man in Vermont to win a seat in the U.S. Senate as an Independent. Known as a “practical and successful legislator,” Sanders served as chairman of the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs where he authored and passed the most significant veteran health care reform bill in recent history. While in the Senate, Sanders has fought tirelessly for working class Americans against the influence of big money in politics. In 2010, he gave an eight-and-a-half hour filibuster-like speech on the Senate floor in opposition to extending Bush-era tax breaks for the wealthy. In 2015, the Democratic leadership tapped Bernie to serve as the caucus’ ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. Known for his consistency on the issues, Senator Sanders has supported the working class, women, communities of color, and the LGBT community throughout his career. He is an advocate for the environment, unions, and immigrants. He voted against Keystone XL, opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, wants to expand the Voting Rights Act, and pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

Finally, finally, finally the mainstream media is talking about the TPP. You know, the Trans-Pacific Partnership: The massive 12-nation international trade deal that comprises nearly 40% of the world's commerce and is a huge giveaway to corporate interests at the expense of workers and environment. The MSM has finally caught wind 4 years late. BUT, of course, the way they're talking about it is more shallow than a puddle and only in reference to the horse race between Hillary and Trump.

http://democracynow.org - One of the world’s biggest multinational trade deals, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has been signed by 12 member nations in New Zealand and will now undergo a two-year ratification period in which at least six countries must approve the final text for the deal to be implemented. The Trans-Pacific Partnership encompasses 12 Pacific Rim nations, including the United States, and 40 percent of the world’s economy. Opponents say it will benefit corporations at the expense of health, the environment, free speech and labor rights. Activists have kicked off a worldwide series of protests around the signing of the trade pact, including a nonviolent blockade of the convention center in Auckland where the signing took place. A Maori tribe refused a request to perform at a welcome ceremony for trade ministers, saying the TPP threatens sovereignty. Meanwhile, the White House has warned Congress that a delay in ratifying the deal will cost the U.S. economy. Trade Representative Michael Froman said the Obama administration is doing everything in its power to move it forward. But our guest, Lori Wallach of Public Citizen, argues, "We have to make sure every member of Congress says there’s no way, we’re not meant to do this." The deal has also become a campaign issue, and Wallach notes, "There’s no presidential candidate in any state polling over 5 percent who supports the TPP."

Have you heard? The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) "free trade" agreement is a stealthy policy being pressed by corporate America, a dream of the 1 percent, that in one blow could: -offshore millions of jobs, -free Wall Street and its banksters from oversight, -reduce Internet freedom, -ban policies needed to create green jobs and rebuild local economies, -decrease access to medicine by extending drug company monopolies, -empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards, such as tobacco control and clean air and water regulations.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is one of the biggest trade deals the U.S. has ever negotiated, but the public isn't privy to it. Follow Elizabeth Hagedorn: http://www.twitter.com/elizhagedorn See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Depending on who you talk to, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is either "a vital piece of middle-class economics," as President Obama called it, or "a new easy way for corporations to shut down in America," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, an Independent from Vermont. Problem is, we have no real way of knowing. The trade agreement — one of the biggest in American history — is classified. Journalists and members of the public can't read it. Most of it, anyway. WikiLeaks has published the draft texts for a few chapters, focusing on intellectual property rights and the environment. Lawmakers can see the full text, but they've got to jump through hoops to get their hands on it. (Video via House Democrats) Politico explains,"If you're a member who wants to read the text, you've got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving." "Wait a minute. I'm going to take notes, and then you're going to take my notes away from me, and then you're going to have them in a file, and then you can read my notes? Not on your life," said Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat from California. That's been the general sentiment among critics — mostly liberal Democrats — who say the near total secrecy surrounding the giant, legally binding trade deal is unwarranted. The administration sees it differently, saying a certain level of confidentiality — as with most trade deals — is needed to ensure potential trade partners can communicate with a "high degree of candor, creativity, and mutual trust." In other words, the White House doesn't want to lay all its cards on the table before it has to and risk undermining negotiations with the 11 other governments involved. And it's not as though the public won't ever have a chance to read the TPP. The fine print will be made public 60 days before the president sends the deal to Congress. "There will be months of review. Every T crossed, every I dotted. Everybody is going to be able to see exactly what's in it," President Obama said during a trade forum at Nike's headquarters. Many corporate lawyers and lobbyists already have. "An industry adviser from the Motion Picture Association can sit at their desk with a laptop, enter their username and password and see the negotiating text of a proposed trade agreement. Virtually no one in the Congress ... has the ability to do that," said Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon. Over 500 advisers — all members of appointed trade advisory committees — are involved in the talks and have access to draft documents. This video includes images from Getty Images.
