Trans Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), also known as the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement, is a multilateral free trade agreement that aims to further liberalize the economies of the Asia-Pacific region; specifically, Article 1.1.3 notes: “The Parties seek to support the wider liberalisation process in APEC consistent with its goals of free and open trade and investment.” The proposals have been accused of being excessively restrictive, providing intellectual property restraints beyond those in the Korea-U.S.

Okay... we as a people in this country are about to be betrayed in the worst possible fashion. There is a secret trade agreement ( the Trans Pacific Partnership) that has been negotiated in secret that attacks the sovereignty of elected governments and gives that sovereignty to multinational corporations. It will be Fast Tracked through Congress shortly after the Republicans take control. It is one thing Obama did that most people who know anything about it oppose. It is NAFTA on steroids. It means more jobs shipped overseas. It means corporations can disregard safety, labor, and any other laws they don't like. It makes multinational companies more powerful than elected governments. They can sue countries that impact their profits. Profit trumps democracy and clean air or clean water. It makes even inadvertent copyright violations a criminal offense punishable by jail time. It will make propaganda and censorship legal. Free speech will be curtailed. It is a 12 nation cartel that will rule the western w .. ...
The former Labor government had a blanket ban on Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanisms in free trade agreements, and with good reason - an ISDS provision allows overseas corporations to sue the government (taxpayer's money) if our laws (e.g environmental and workplace) get in the way of their profits. Since coming into power the Abbott government has signed off on two free trade agreements, one with China and one with South Korea. Both of these trade agreements contain an ISDS mechanism. To make matters worse, Abbott and Co announced this week that they intend to secure free trade agreements with France and India. Abbott and Co have also indicated that they are willing to sign the highly controversial and highly secretive, Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP). To state the bloody obvious: Abbott and Co are selling are us out.

The people have been getting the shaft from President Obama since January 2009. He has done a splendid job for Wall Street, Banks, and Corporations (including the Insurance Companies) by forcing people to become customers under this joke of a law called The Affordable Care Act.

Keystone XL Pipeline, Trans Pacific Partnership, and the "chained CPI" that will reduce all future Social Security payments.are all coming soon from President Obama. To me, he is nothing but a corporate *** The ONLY differences to me between Obama and Bush are: 1.) Obama gives a far more rousing speech off of the teleprompter 2.) Obama's teeth are whiter ;) p.s. I'm as Liberal as it gets when it comes to politics. I voted for Obama in 2008 and in 2012.

The second great one in a day by Robert Reich. "Big corporations and banks are frustrated that the Trans Pacific Partnership, a proposed free-trade agreement beween the U.S. and 11 nations of South America, North America and Asia, is going nowhere. Partly that’s because Japan refuses to allow in exports from American agribusiness. But the real opposition lies in Congress. “The problem is largely with Democratic labor groups and constituencies,” says Susan Schwab, former U.S. trade representative in the George W. Bush administration. Wrong. It’s that the deal was negotiated behind closed doors by big corporations and banks, and its details still haven’t been shared with the public. All we know is corporations get protection for their intellectual capital, banks get protection for their financial capital, but human capital – American jobs and workers – get no protection whatsoever. According to polls, most Americans don’t want or trust the Trans Pacific Partnership. And they shouldn’t."~ R ...

(Saul Loeb/Getty Images) A common provision allowing foreign investors to sue host governments has become a ticking time bomb inside trade agreements like the soon to be signed Trans Pacific Partnership. Some countries are now refusing to agree to the provision and are questioning its legal legitimacy. Jess Hill investigates. The Trans Pacific Partnership, or TPP, is one of the biggest trade deals in history. If it’s signed, it will cover almost 40 per cent of the global economy and 12 countries that border the Pacific Ocean, including Australia and the United States. US Secretary of State John Kerry was in Honolulu last month to preach the ethos of what he calls a ‘21st century agreement’. ‘In the 21st century, a nation’s interests and ...

It's wonderful to see the raised awareness about the dangers of GMOs, and the victories being won at the state level, but I want to issue a very loud BEWARE! If the Trans Pacific Partnership is allowed to pass, it is most likely that GMO labeling will not be permitted. The TPP regulations, by design, will supercede US regulations, which in turn overrule any State policies. Make no mistake, the TPP is the beast that must be slayed. They are trying to secretly push it through. We need to make sure it doesn't remain secret, and that the US does not commit to it.
regarding a perjanjian called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). It involves ASEAN countries too if my facts are right
I have supported Obama from day one, but if anything changes that it is going to be if he keeps pushing this Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement! It is nothing more than NAFTA on steroids and I just don't get why the guy is promoting it. It will destroy more American jobs.

♥ Obama leaves for Asia tour Wednesday, April 23, 2014 12:19 AM President Barack Obama departed Washington Tuesday for a weeklong tour of Asia in what the White House has called a "rebalancing" eastward of US foreign policy. Obama left Andrews Air Force Base at 10:30 am (1430 GMT) aboard Air Force One, on a trip that was first to make a stopover in Washington state to visit the scene of a deadly landslide. From there, the president's itinerary was to take him to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. The visit is Obama's fifth to the region during his presidency. During his travel, Obama will attempt to make progress in dragged out negotiations over the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, and reassure potential partners that he can get it endorsed by a reluctant Congress. Senior US officials have said both Japanese and US trade officials have been working to narrow gaps on market access in the auto and agricultural sectors that have slowed broader TPP talks. In Seoul, Obama will hold ...

They would likely win law due to TPP. Tobacco co recently lost their case - TPP we would lose & either pay very hefty cost of loss of their profits!!! or have to rescind OUR law!!! ) speak up - petition is ok but simple submission - all politicians need to hear is there is widspread opposition & threatens their hold on power - that's all

Mike, Thanks to grassroots support from people like you all over the world, so far we’ve managed to stall the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Internet censorship plan from being finalized. The extreme proposals contained in the TPP will turn the Internet we know and love into something very different from what it is today. Specifically, the TPP will make your Internet Service Provider (ISP) liable for everything you do online.1 This will turn your ISP into the “Internet Police” monitoring what subscribers are doing as well as censoring & removing content to protect itself from getting sued.2 We know that US officials are leading the effort to globalize censorship through the TPP. The good news is that, this is an election year in the US; at OpenMedia, we’ve got a plan to amplify your voice right when decision makers have no choice but to listen. As a grassroots, community-backed organization, our ability to make an impact depends on you: Mike, can you chip in with a donation to help us put our pla ...

Phillip Morris, an American multinational corporation, has used a "free" trade agreement between Australia and Hong Kong to challenge Australian law which requires anti-smoking graphics on labels. In spite of the labeling support from all Australian political parties as well as the Australian High Court, Phillip Morris has sued in private trade tribunals to be compensated for anticipated future profits which it says have been hurt by the labels. Outrageous but only one of many such suits! "Free" trade agreements move multinational corporations to be level of nation states and give them "rights" not available to domestic corporations. They do at the international global level what US Supreme Court decisions establishing corporate personhood rights have done within the US.

*** marriage. *** athletes. That's not what this is about any more. The ruling class has co-oped this issue for its own gains. Example 1: Obama has many problems concerning his illegal drone program. Forget about international law. Most Americans don't care about that. But the big O has violated the Constitution and might so again. Add NSA spying, the record breaking deportations, and his ardent support for the Trans Pacific Partnership (more outsourcing), the *** issue is all the current administration has. That and maybe legalizing weed. They SHOULDN'T be issues that any political party can hijack. Example 2: The NFL (and the NBA) are PR nightmares. Never mind the off field antics from Riley Cooper, Michael Vick, Aaron Hernandez, and Superbowl champ/commentator Ray Lewis. Never mind the baby factories and lack of child support to follow them. And never mind that your taxes fund these corporate powerhouses (excuses about job creation are bunk). The game itself should NOT exist. It's one thing for concuss ...
Multi billion dollar gains to the economy - is the core of the pitch for why New Zealand should join the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) with the US and ten other countries.. Trouble is the FIGURES DONT STACK UP Firstline... 'The big sounding numbers have generally been taken at face value by political commentators and the media, with very little investigation into to how they were derived, what assumptions underlie them, and what crucial issues may have been left out of the calculations. Alongside this uncritical acceptance of the superficially-big numbers has gone equally uncritical acceptance of the characterisation of the TPP as a Free trade agreement (FTA) as if it is just another traditional trade deal focused on tariff cutting. The TPP is far from this, with only a few of its 29 chapters dealing with traditional trade legislation into line with a US-designed template, and compelling a wide range of provisions aimed to benefit US legacy.' corporates in particular (those protecting histori . ...

Is anyone besides Ed Shultz speaking to the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal and Fast Track authority? And of course, Amy Goodman and Thom Hartmann. Here are links to articles regarding the Democratic and Republican stances on this issue. The other three links are to articles re Honeywell outsourcing jobs—I looked these up because the CEO of Honeywell is one of those advocating for TPP and FTA, citing concerns that other countries place high tariffs on Honeywell products. The last link is actually a lengthy article from 2002 pointing out how many industries, including Honeywell, were outsourcing jobs. Sen Max Baucus (D-MT) heads up the finance committee that is pushing this FTA. He is also the one who scuttled the Public Option part of ACA, which had been passed by the House. For all this, he is awarded the appointment of Ambassador to China.

Trans Pacific Partnership will only make it worse! The CWA is working to fight The TPP.
"Trade at any cost is not a value. Our core values – democracy, economic justice, consumer and environmental protection --must be enshrined in our trade agreements. We cannot delegate the responsibility to achieve those goals to secret negotiations nor to appointed officials without meaningful democratic control. Congress must play a strong and enforceable role in ensuring those goals are being met." --CWA President Larry Cohen, testifying today before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee on the danger of the Trans Pacific Partnership, or TPP. Read Cohen's full remarks here:

Note to Secretary of State Kerry (cc: Senators Cantwell and Murray and Representative Heck): Re. Ongoing development of international trade agreements Given the growing concerns around planet earth regarding the impacts of human development on our limited natural resources, it should not be surprising to you in your leadership position that the efforts to develop new trade agreements causes one to pause, to say the very least. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the United States and European nations, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) between the USA and other Pacific Rim countries and the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) between Canada and China will each have significant consequences on each of our lives and lifestyles. Guaranteed investments by foreign-owned corporations in other countries is like playing with fire and must be avoided. This is asking for unimaginable, unaffordable ramifications These “behind closed door” trade agreements a ...
