In July of 2012, thanks to the help of local activists the author obtained a Press Pass and a very coveted “Stakeholder’s Pass” that allowed him into the San Diego TPP negotiations, thus being the only reporter present who was not pro-TPP. His tough questions, interviews, and press conference challenges put the author in the line-of-fire and led to a shocking, multi-part expose, possibly the most in-depth, inside look at TPP.
Due to the constant secrecy of the TPP negations- highlighted in this series- very little new information has been revealed since. In an effort to provide the reader information on the threat of TPP, Intellihub is kindly re-publishing the series- one part each day- as a service to its American and world-wide readers. A new final chapter will be offered that will include the most recent updated information. TPP and TTIP must be stopped! Read-on and find out why. TPP is not secret anymore! B.R-T.
(INTELLIHUB) — “We have to stop them before it gets to Congress”, warned Brooke Harper, referring to the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), the proposed pan-pacific trade treaty. This is likely the most insidious piece of corporate-inspired global legislation ever to be secretly slipped through the halls of the US Congress. Its details were a secret until two weeks ago. Now, opposition must rise quickly. The consequences for America and eleven other nations are indeed terminal.
Ms. Harper, who represents Global Trade Watch, an organization based in Wash. DC, has just arrived in San Diego. Her goal: to rally Southern California area activists in preparation for the upcoming TPP-eight day-negotiations to be held at the Hilton/ San Diego Bayfront, in San Diego, July 2-10, 2012. This is round thirteen of the “negotiations.”
A crowd of about forty, representing activist groups from the San Diego area, listened as Harper explained the depth of the threat posed by TPP. They had gathered at Canvass for a Cause, a community hall in the City Heights area. What the audience heard was chilling and went far beyond the fringes of our current broken American democracy and its corrupt politicians.
US Pres. Barack Obama is a traitor. Period. This underhanded treaty secretly sells- out the American people’s legal, sovereign, and constitutional protections in favor of this president’s corporate puppet masters. The concept, inception, and mechanism of the TPP treaty-as well as the effort to secretly pass it- come, solely, from the Obama administration. In doing so, our one time constitutional scholar president attempts to create a new, world- wide, corporate dynasty. TPP effectively allows for the overthrow of the legal sovereignty and national jurisdiction of the United States’ courts and political system to a foreign power. This is the very definition of treason.
