The Big Negatives of the TTP and TTIP Trade Deals

There is much negative about these new Trade Deals, the TPP, Trans Pacific Partnership, and the TTIP, the Transatlantic Investment Partnership. There is a lot that hurts the workers and the countries and allows the Big Corporations to be the winners.

Here’s a great breakdown of all that is wrong with the TPP:

What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secretive, multinational trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement. The main problems are two-fold:

(1) Digital Policies that Benefit Big Corporations at the Expense of the Public: The IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of expression, right to privacy and due process, as well as hindering peoples’ abilities to innovate. Other chapters of the agreement encourage your personal data to be sent borders with limited protection for your privacy, and allow foreign corporations to sue countries for laws or regulations that promote the public interest,

(2) Lack of Transparency: The entire process has shut out multi-stakeholder participation and is shrouded in secrecy.

The twelve nations that negotiated the TPP are the U.S., Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei Darussalam. The TPP contains a chapter on intellectual property covering copyright, trademarks, and patents. The official release of the final TPP text confirmed what we had long feared: that U.S. negotiators pushed for the adoption of copyright measures far more restrictive than currently required by international treaties, including the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).

The TPP Will Rewrite Global Rules on Intellectual Property Enforcement

All signatory countries will be required to conform their domestic laws and policies to the provisions of the Agreement. In the U.S., this will further entrench controversial aspects of U.S. copyright law—such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)—and restrict the ability of Congress to engage in domestic law reform to meet the evolving needs of American citizens and the innovative technology sector. Overall, the TPP’s provisions that recognize the rights of the public are non-binding, whereas almost everything that benefits rightsholders is binding. [more]

And the TTIP is not much better. In fact there is much pushback from European countries on the TTIP.

TTIP: Are US-Europe trade talks tanking?

The talks began in 2013 with the aim of reducing or removing a wide range of barriers to transatlantic trade and investment – but they have proved controversial in both Europe and America.

There are many critics who hope Mr Gabriel’s assessment is right.

The objective of the talks is to boost the incomes of Europeans and Americans by stimulating more trade and investment.

The planned agreement is known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. The two sides are seeking to eliminate most tariffs (trade taxes) and to make it easier for American and European business to comply with regulations when selling goods into the other market.

But opponents have rejected the economic analysis, and criticised the potential impact on the environment and consumers.

They argue that by seeking convergence in regulation, TTIP is actually heading to the lowest levels of protection.

There is also a widespread concern about plans for tribunals or courts where foreign investors would be able to sue a host country government if its policies breached the agreement and caused losses to the investor. [more]

These Trade Deals, as I said above, are not good for the working people and not good for the countries. The more research I do the less I like these ‘Deals”.

    The Fury and Failure of Donald Trump
    By Matt Taibbi

    …The only thing that could get in the way of real change – if not now, then surely very soon – was a rebellion so maladroit, ill-conceived and irresponsible that even the severest critics of the system would become zealots for the status quo.

    In the absolute best-case scenario, the one in which he loses, this is what Trump’s run accomplished. He ran as an outsider antidote to a corrupt two-party system, and instead will leave that system more entrenched than ever. If he goes on to lose, he will be our Bonaparte, the monster who will continue to terrify us even in exile, reinforcing the authority of kings.

    If you thought lesser-evilism was bad before, wait until the answer to every question you might have about your political leaders becomes, “Would you rather have Trump in office?”

    Trump can’t win. Our national experiment can’t end because one aging narcissist got bored of sex and food. Not even America deserves that. But that doesn’t mean we come out ahead. We’re more divided than ever, sicker than ever, dumber than ever. And there’s no reason to think it won’t be worse the next time.

    “Trump said to watch your precincts. I’m going to go, for sure,” said Steve Webb, a 61-year-old carpenter from Fairfield, Ohio. “I’ll look for . . . well, it’s called racial profiling. Mexicans. Syrians. People who can’t speak American,” he said. “I’m going to go right up behind them. I’ll do everything legally. I want to see if they are accountable. I’m not going to do anything illegal.

    Meanwhile, the underlying economic reality that has stoked Trump’s hatefulness (and also fueled Bernie Sanders’s “political revolution”) isn’t being addressed. The typical American household is 4 percent poorer today than it was in 2000, and has fewer total assets than the typical household did in 1984. In other words, most Americans continue to lose ground.

    Perversely, Trump offers giant tax cuts for the wealthy. At least Hillary Clinton offers paid family leave, debt-free college, and more spending on infrastructure. Good as far as she goes. But none of this is big enough or bold enough to reverse the 25-year slide of the majority.

    What to do? We must have (1) massive investments in early childhood and in our schools, (2) a large wage subsidy for the bottom 60 percent, in the form of a bigger Earned Income Tax Credit, (3) a $15 minimum wage that’s a living wage, (4) a universal basic income, and (5) single-payer healthcare. How can we afford this? A wealth tax on the richest 5 percent.

    How would we ever accomplish this? We must. Even the elite is beginning to understand that the current trends are unsustainable, politically and economically.

    Trump’s parting gift to America is to undermine our faith in democratic institutions. “It’s one big fix,’’ Trump said yesterday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C. “This whole election is being rigged.’’ He’s claiming Democrats are planning to load up buses of minorities to vote several times in different areas, that boxes of Clinton votes are already waiting somewhere, that Mexicans are primed to rush across the border to vote, and that the media isn’t reporting any of this because it’s been “bought.”

    If he loses, Trump wants to cast a pall over the legitimacy of a Clinton presidency. Some of his followers are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination.

    The Republican Party — the chair of the Republican National Committee, Republican leaders in Congress, and Republican outlets like Fox News — must condemn these dangerous provocations. Even in defeat, Trump will pose a clear and present danger to America.

    Trump’s warnings of a rigged election stokes anger among followers – The Boston Globe

    Anger and hostility were the most overwhelming sentiments at a Trump rally in Cincinnati last week, a deep sense of frustration, an us-versus-them mentality, and a belief that they are part of an unstoppable and underestimated movement. Unlike many in the country, however, these hard-core Trump followers do not believe the real estate mogul’s misfortunes are of his own making.

    Additionally, the Feds ordered a halt to another part of the pipelineon 9/9, but it only asked for the company to “voluntarily pause” work in some other areas.

    BREAKING: Trump Loses Lawsuit For Ripping Off Small Business, His Punishment Will Make You Smile
    Bipartisan Report

    According to the Miami Herald, Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto ruled in favor of a local paint store in a case regarding Trump’s unpaid bills. The case, heard in a Miami-Dade County courtroom, resulted in an order for the Trump’s National Doral Miami golf resort to pay the small family business almost $300,000 in attorney’s fees.

    Apparently, Trump tried to rip off the small business, The Paint Spot, in regards to the final payment on a contract sum of $200,000. The final payment was for $34,863 for paint used to renovate a home located on Trump’s “Blue Monster” golf course in 2014.

    Trump’s National, the company named in the lawsuit, has insisted that it has “paid enough” for the paint sold, regardless of the amount on the contract. The Paint Spot then exercised their rights by placing a lien on the resort property. This resulted in Judge Cueto ordering the foreclosure and sale of the resort to satisfy the lien.

    This ruling to foreclose and auction off the resort was reported in USA Today in June, when Judge Cueto noted in his ruling that Trump’s legal team looked positively stricken when the construction manager admitted during testimony that the company had decided not to pay The Paint Spot because it felt like it had “already paid enough.” In his ruling, Judge Cueto noted that: [more]

  8. Armed Trump Supporters Hold FEMALE Democratic Candidate’s Office Hostage, Chaos Erupts (VIDEO)
    Bipartisan Report

    “We’re not a threat to anybody,” declared one of the armed Trump supporters who stalked Democratic candidate Jane Dittmar’s office in Palmyra, Va for nearly 12 hours. “The only threat is ignorance, and ignorance will breed fear,” he added without a trace of irony.

    Daniel Parks, one of two armed Trump supporters who could care less that Donald Trump is an alleged unregistered sex offender, told CBS 19 he just wants to help like-minded folks “come out of the closet.”

    ‘I’m just trying to provide a voice for someone who might be a closet supporter of Trump. Other people who are a little worried to speak out because of possible persecution.’

    But Jane Dittmar, who’s running for Congress, and her volunteers feel it’s not these young, white males who need to feel worried about “possible persecution.” After all, no one’s hovering around their offices, residences, or pickup trucks the way Donald Trump hovered over Hillary Clinton like an abusive partner or creepy stalker during the second not-so-presidential debate.

  9. Sheriff Supporting Trump Says It’s Time To Bring Out ‘Pitchforks And Torches’
    This is horrifying.

    Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a vocal backer Donald Trump, is urging Americans to take up pitchforks and torches, as the GOP nominee claims that the presidential election is rigged against him.

    Clarke, who has called the Occupy and Black Lives Matter protests “anarchy,” made the call to arms on Twitter Saturday. He also complained about branches of government and media of being corrupt.

    David A. Clarke, Jr. ✔ @SheriffClarke

    It’s incredible that our institutions of gov, WH, Congress, DOJ, and big media are corrupt & all we do is bitch. Pitchforks and torches time

    Clarke’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    His complaints of corruption follow Trump’s claims that the presidential election is rigged against him, as his polling sinks.

    “The whole thing is one big fix. One big ugly lie. It’s one big fix,” Trump said at a North Carolina rally on Friday.

    A reader contacted The Huffington Post Saturday evening to share that they had reported Clarke’s tweet to the FBI in Wisconsin. Asked if the agency was investigating, Leonard Peace, a spokesman for the FBI in Milwaukee, declined to comment.

    Inside Donald Trump’s echo chamber of conspiracies, grievances and vitriol

    …Trump sat for an interview with Jones in late 2015 in which Jones spoke about the U.S. becoming a “third-world nation” and “globalists that want to have a world government.” Trump nodded along.

    Jones more recently has called Obama and Clinton “demon possessed,” smelling of sulfur and attracting flies. At the second debate, Trump picked up on that characterization, labeling Clinton “the devil.” And it was Stone, in a recent interview with Infowars, who introduced the unfounded theory advanced on the stump by Trump that Clinton was “jacked up on something” in the second debate.

    ——————–
    The acolytes of Alex Jones are mired in the fear and deceit characterized by clinical paranoia and victimhood . And, now, the egomania that has driven Donald Trump throughout his adult life has no remaining refuge beyond the fantastical sold daily by Infowars, and the cult-like loyalty of its faithful readers.

    This ain’t the first time that the minions of Alex Jones have been called out as keyboard warriors suffering from mental disorders…and it won’t be the last.

    As for Alex Jones himself, I’m inclined to ascribe to him the same greed modus operandi that I have ascribed to Rush Limbaugh. If either of them actually subscribes to the nonsense that they spew, it is because they have been selling it, for profit, for so long that it has parasitized their brains.

  23. Trump’s refusal to accept intelligence briefing on Russia stuns experts

    Former senior U.S. national security officials are dismayed at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s repeated refusal to accept the judgment of intelligence professionals that Russia stole files from the Democratic National Committee computers in an effort to influence the U.S. election.

    The former officials, who have served presidents in both parties, say they were bewildered when Trump cast doubt on Russia’s role after receiving a classified briefing on the subject and again after an unusually blunt statement from U.S. agencies saying they were “confident” that Moscow had orchestrated the attacks.

    “It defies logic,” retired Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and the National Security Agency, said of Trump’s pronouncements.

    Trump has assured supporters that, if elected, he would surround himself with experts on defense and foreign affairs, where he has little experience. But when it comes to Russia, he has made it clear that he is not listening to intelligence officials, the former officials said. [more]

Originally hand-dug in 1922, a bathhouse was added by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression, and local farmers used horse-drawn soil-scrapers to later enlarge the pool. The pool hosts 50-meter Olympic swimming lanes, three water slides, and a children’s pool with zero-entry depth. The pool employs a minimum of 14 lifeguards, two slide assistants, three admission clerks, two concession workers and a pool manager on duty each day. Advertised for years as “The World’s Largest, Free, Outdoor, Municipal, Concrete Swimming Pool”, the pool has been known to count up to 2,000 patrons during the summer months.

  28. BREAKING: FBI Moving To Investigate Trump’s Russian Ties To Cyber-Terror & Treason
    Bipartisan Report

    The FBI is being pushed to probe Donald Trump’s campaign and his advisor Roger Stone for cyber-terrorism and treason. And if those sound like serious charges, well, colluding with the Russian government to influence U.S. elections is some serious sh*t.

    Of course, it’s hardly surprising that an alleged unregistered sex offender like Donald Trump and top allies like Roger Stone would be involved in such shenanigans. In a press release dated Oct. 15, The Democratic Coalition Against Trump (DCAT) announced that they’d filed the following formal complaint with the FBI.

    ‘We are requesting that the FBI immediately look into the connection between Roger Stone and the Trump campaign and the recent hacking of emails, likely conducted by the Russian government. We believe that Roger Stone had forewarning of the hack, based on a statement he made in August 2016 that Podesta’s emails would be next, and that he and the campaign have been working with a foreign government to influence an American election.’

    Looking back, it seems highly suspicious that Roger Stone has done much to spread dangerous and flat out false rumors about rigged elections. That must have warmed the cockles of Vladimir Putin’s tiny, black, frigid heart. Oh, and on Aug. 13, the Trump surrogate went on the deranged right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones‘s radio show and bragged about having “mutual friends” with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

    Then, a week later, Stone showed off his amazing psychic abilities when he tweeted that “it will soon [be] Podesta’s time in the barrel.” He was referring, of course, to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta. [more]
