TPP: Communist Utopian Dream - A Tough Sell For Most Americans

The Rising of the Beast: TPP is the planned Communist Utopian dream

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its agent of tyrannical empowerment, the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) exists today as the most overt and sinister example of the Communist utopian dream of a one world government.

The “conspiracy theory” detailing the establishment of a “New World Order” where national sovereignty, the destruction of the middle class and ultimate enslavement of all people except the global elite remains a conspiracy, but is no longer a theory to be ridiculed. Its final stages are being put into place for all to see, or at least those who have eliminated the corporate media from their daily diet of disinformation, deception and distortion.

Due in large part to a media captured and controlled by global corporate interests, and the unabashed secrecy that surrounds this “trade” agreement, most people are in the dark about the intent and consequences of the TPP and the TPA. Moreover, there is deliberate obfuscation of the terms being used and the insincere attempts to legitimize the need for the TPA, which was once known as “Fast Track Negotiating Authority.”

Although the TPP is being constructed in secret and disclosure of its contents is a criminal offense, it would seem reasonable to argue that no one knows exactly what it contains. That is only partially true.  There have been several leaks and allegations by those privy to the voluminous document that it extends well beyond trade and is more of an international treaty that will adversely impact our national sovereignty and individual rights.

It is important to note that Fast Track Negotiating Authority is considered to be such an extreme ceding of power from the legislative branch to the executive branch of government that it has only been used 16 times during its history and during the history of the United States. It has also been renamed from Fast Track to the current Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the sake of political propriety.

The Fast Track Authority or the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) allows the President unprecedented power to actually write legislation that cannot be amended, circumventing normal congressional committee processes. Historically it has permitted the executive branch to write bills that had little to do with trade, such as matters pertaining to immigration visas, food labeling, and even energy policy.

TPP: A Trojan Horse: As previously noted, there have been several leaked documents (including through wikileaks in 2013) about the TPP. Based on extensive research from numerous open source data sources, it appears that the TPP presently consists of 29 chapters, although that number is subject to revision. Yet only three-(3) chapters, based on some admissions and assertions, actually deal with international trade.

The TPP is being negotiated under heavy secrecy, with criminal penalties for anyone who leaks information about the agreement to the public. Nonetheless, there have been several leaks that indicate the TPP involves far more than normal trade agreements, and will be the framework for a “New World Order” that begins with a “New Financial Order” anchored by the TPP. It is important to understand that the TPP will involve nearly two-thirds of the world’s economy as it currently stands.

An assessment of what we know suggests that some components of the TPP includes various unpopular iterations of initiatives such as SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, the SPP, NAU, internet regulation, and even ObamaCare are included within the framework of the TPP. This secret agreement also calls for restrictions to be placed on “intellectual property defined as trademarks, patents, copyrights and geopolitical indicators.” It also details U.S. corporate control regarding the three most important things to mankind: health, land use, and the environment. It can be considered “Agenda 21 on a near global scale” merging with NAFTA. It reportedly calls for the “nationalization and equitable distribution of all natural resources.”

Worse, it reportedly contains measures that would allow for both small arms control and unfettered immigration into the United States, while voluntarily subjugating Articles of the United States Constitution to world arbitrating bodies. It would deliver a massive blow to our nation as an independent country and usher in the stated objectives of the globalists, from the members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, members of the Bilderberg Group, and even the architects of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

In sum and substance, the TPP appears to be one of the most important end-game mechanisms necessary to usher in a state of global governance.

To achieve the Communist utopian dream of a one world authoritative body, national sovereignty must first be destroyed. Looking at the TPP with a wide-angle lens, it is now much easier to not merely see, but contextualize the building blocks that have been previously erected that brought America to this point of acquiescence to a global authority. It puts previous initiatives such as NAFTA, GATT, the WTO, etc. in proper perspective and identifies them for what they are.

We look at the orchestrated killing of the U.S. Dollar, an issue about which I’ve previously written. When viewed by itself, it makes little sense why the leaders of our country would want to kill off our national currency. In the context of the establishment of a one world government, however, it fits well into the larger agenda of a one world monetary system, a necessary component of the “New World Order.”

The TPP is indeed a Trojan Horse, and its implementation is the culmination of decades and even centuries of planning in secret, by the power elite who, regardless of their political affiliation, are pushing the Communist utopian dream against the will of the American people.

Despite a heavy push by President Barack Obama for a sweeping multinational trade deal, a majority of Americans echo the concerns of labor unions and a number of Democratic members of Congress that the trade accord will negatively impact U.S. workers and companies. 
Two-thirds of Americans say protecting American industries and jobs by limiting imports is more important than allowing free trade so they can buy products at lower prices from any country, according to the most recent NBC News online survey conducted by SurveyMonkey from June 3-5. 
And that sentiment is held across party lines, with majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and independents agreeing that limiting imported inexpensive goods from other countries to protect jobs from other countries is more important than being able to buy cheap goods.

Over the last 15 months Ukrainians have paid for Washington’s overthrow of their elected government in deaths, dismemberment of their country, and broken economic and political relationships with Russia that cost Ukraine its subsidized energy. Now Ukrainians are losing their pensions and traditional support payments. The Ukrainian population is headed for the graveyard.

On June 1 the TASS news agency reported that Ukraine has stopped payments to pensioners, World War II veterans, people with disabilities, and victims of Chernobyl. According to the report, Kiev has also “eliminated transport, healthcare, utilities and financial benefits for former prisoners of Nazi concentration camps and recipients of some Soviet-era orders and titles. Compensations to families with children living in the areas contaminated by radiation from the Chernobyl accident will be no longer paid either. Ukraine’s parliamentary opposition believes that the Prosecutor General’s Office should launch an investigation against Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk who actively promoted the law on the abolition of privileges.”

Russia, of course, will be blamed. I can already write the New York Times and Washington Post editorials and the words that will come from Obama, CNN, and Fox “News.” In fact, so can my intelligent readers.
The same looting is underway in Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the United States. In Great Britain everything achieved by the Labour Party over many decades has been taken away, and not only by the Conservatives but by Labour leader Tony Blair himself.
Where in the West is your wealth, small or large, safe? Nowhere. Washington has destroyed financial privacy everywhere in the West. Washington even forced Switzerland to violate its own laws in order to comply with Washington’s insistence on the absence of any financial privacy.

As Washington has run the printing presses hard in order to serve a handful of banks that control the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve, unless China and Russia acquiesce to becoming Washington’s vassals, at some point the dollar’s value is going to slide downward. When that happens, the Federal Reserve cannot continue to create new money to meet Washington’s needs.

Where will the money come from? It will come from Americans’ pensions.
Pensions accumulate tax free, and this accumulation will be confiscated in whole or part to make up for the failure to tax, another “privilege.”
That confiscation works that year. But what happens the next year when the dollar is reeling on foreign exchange markets from over-supply?
The answer is that another chunk of American pensions, and I am speaking of private pensions, will be confiscated “in order to stabilize the financial system.” Social Security will be long gone by this time.

Alicia Munnel, who was my replacement as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy in the Clinton regime, advocated many years ago a confiscation of private pensions, including your IRAs and 401Ks, in order to compensate the US government for their non-taxed status.

The belief spread by Wall Street and “shareholder advocates” that corporations only have responsibility to their owners and managers has destroyed the American economy.
By locating production offshore, corporations have destroyed the incomes that supported the American consumer market. For example, the incomes associated with the production of Apple computers, I-Pads, and I-Phones are in China. Apple’s American customers do not have the incomes associated with the production of the products that Apple markets to them.
Americans are already dispossessed of their livelihoods and careers and their pensions are next. Wherever we look, the fate of populations under Western influence are the same. The Ukrainians are exploited, the Greeks, the British, the Americans.
Wherever the West has an imprint, the populations are exploited. Exploitation of the many for the few is the Hallmark of the West, a decrepit, corrupt, and collapsing entity.

Just five minutes into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s meandering Herzliya Conference speech Tuesday night, it was clear that he meant for it to be ignored — at least, that is, by Israel’s prime time television news, to which conference organizers had timed the event.

The delivery style – smiling knowingly into the audience, telling odd vignettes about India’s prime minister and Google’s CEO, switching between Hebrew and English seemingly at random, praising free-market capitalism with no clear point, even at one point recalling his own reforms of Israeli currency controls from the mid-1990s – was all so out of character and so hard to follow that it is hard to escape the conclusion that he did not mean for it to be closely followed by a local audience.

If so, it worked. The speech was largely ignored by Israelis and the media, and barely featured on the evening news. “There’s nothing new in this speech,” declared one Israeli political reporter after another. Listening to the speech was “like being forced to look at an uncle’s vacation photos,” agreed one foreign correspondent.

And yet, embedded deep within the speech, tied intimately to the informal, even disdainful style, lay something of a new message, or at least a signal of a changing policy sensibility.
Netanyahu was not unaware of the context of his speech: the growing consciousness among Israeli leaders that the democratic West is losing patience with, and has already lost faith in, his Palestinian policy. And he took the time to subtly ridicule these concerns.

Netanyahu proceeded to lay out his conditions for that two-state solution.
“The solution as I see it is a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state. These are not conditions for entering the talks. I place no conditions. But these are the foundations for an enduring peace between us and the Palestinians, assuming the region will not be swept by these larger forces [of radical Islam].”

Recognition and demilitarization, he went on, would ensure that “what happened in Gaza doesn’t happen again, what happened in Lebanon doesn’t happen again. These are not – help me” – he turned to the audience, seeking a translation for the Hebrew word gachamot – “whims, these are not pretexts, excuses, arguments. This is real.

“How do you prevent tunnels from being dug from Kalkilya to Kfar Saba?” he asked. “There are several thousand tunnels in the seamline between Gaza and Egypt. That’s 17 kilometers – several thousand tunnels. Who will ultimately guarantee that those tunnels are not dug, who will go in in Kalkilya and stop it? Who will prevent the smuggling of weapons?”

But that was just the build-up. It was then, after making his case for demilitarization and recognition, that Netanyahu moved on to the real message. His message wasn’t directed at Israelis, but at the foreigners in the room, at the European governments and Obama administration officials (for whose benefit he even jokingly, gratingly referred to his March speech to Congress) who question his sincerity on peace, and perhaps most of all at Palestinian leaders.

“So I again call on President [Mahmoud} Abbas to return to negotiations without preconditions,” he began. “But I also know he has” — Netanyahu chuckled — “very little reason to talk. Why should he talk? He can get by without talking. He can get by with an international community that blames Israel for not having talks. In other words, the Palestinians run from the table. They ran away from Prime Minister [Ehud] Barak, from Prime Minister [Ehud] Olmert, before that from Prime Minister [Ariel] Sharon, and they ran away from me. When John Kerry proposed a framework for negotiations, a framework for disagreement for God’s sake, they ran away from that too.

And then began his coup de grace: “I think what that does is drive peace away. The idea of imposing peace from the outside doesn’t work anyway, but what it guarantees is, one, we’ll resist it, two, the Palestinians will not come to the table. Because if they can get starting terms that are unacceptable to any Israeli government and from which they can press their charges even more, why should they come to negotiate?”
There it was. Netanyahu’s message lay not in the longstanding complaint about the lack of international pressure on the Palestinians, but in his casual defiance.
One thing at least can be said of Netanyahu’s defiance: he has a point.
At a purely tactical level, given the fact that many Israelis believe any West Bank withdrawal is profoundly dangerous and all but certain to result in a Gaza-style implosion in the territory, there simply isn’t any meaningful way for the world to force Israel’s hand.
The Herzliya speech amounted to one of Israel’s greatest political tacticians offering his unflattering assessment of the strategic underpinnings of the new surge in efforts to pressure Israel. Netanyahu’s attitude, his flippant disregard for his audience’s feelings, and the meandering rhetoric that prevented the message from being made too directly, were all part of the message.
And it is this: go ahead and boycott, go ahead and sanction. Our concerns over security are real, based on bitter experience, and vastly more important to us than any costs you can conceivably impose. Pressuring Israel, then, only traps the Palestinians in the ongoing delusion they have a way out of peace negotiations, a path to independence that doesn’t pass through the Israeli body politic.
