Media Is Rather Quiet About Obama Signing TPP Today

The Trans Pacific Partnership, one of the biggest multinational trade deals ever, has been quietly signed by ministers from its 12 member nations in New Zealand.

The 12 nations account for some 40% of the world’s economy – they now have two years to ratify or reject the pact.

Not a word about it in our media.

“A trade deal is a contract, and it must be one that puts American workers’ interests first, not the interests of global elites,” Senator Sessions of Alabama said in a statement. “It is little surprise the administration is not showcasing today’s signing given its unpopularity with the American people.”

TPP will now be approved by Congress with an up and down vote – no amendments.

A Tufts University study found the TPP will cost nearly 450,000 American jobs in the next nine years.

The TPP involves the US, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru.

“TPP allows America – and not countries like China – to write the rules of the road in the 21st Century, which is especially important in a region as dynamic as the Asia-Pacific,” Barack Obama said.

We don’t know what’s in the final treaty but if Obama likes it, it can’t be good.

  1. This must be brought to the forefront of the Presidential campaign and into America’s newsrooms and into the voting public’s minds. We must not allow this to be ratified by Congress. It is pavement on the road to the Destruction of the United States of America that Obama and his handlers are marching us down.

      Timeline of the Progress Toward a North American Union

      Canadian, U.S., and Mexican elites, including CEOS and politicians, have a plan to create common North American policies and further integrate our economies. This plan goes by various names and euphemisms, such as “deep integration”, “NAFTA-plus”, “harmonization”, the “Big Idea”, the “Grand Bargain”, and the “North American Security and Prosperity Initiative”.

      Vive le Canada offers the following timeline as a resource to educate the general public about the progress of the three countries toward a new North American Union (NAU).

  2. The Trans Pacific Partnership – A Corporate Fascist Coup

    There is a bold global corporate takeover happening right before our eyes. The Trans Pacific Partnership has been discussed in secret for nearly 3 years and has been disguised as a trade deal when in reality it amounts to a fascist corporate coup where the megacorporations are gaining a tighter grip over individual governments all over the world.
