How Hacktivists Will Break Corporate Control Of Information Within A Decade

By: Jake Anderson, The Anti-Media |

Sci-fi author and information rights activist Cory Doctorow appeared out of the dusty heat of the 2015 Burning Man in a gray jumpsuit and a pair of Adbusters Black Spot sneakers. In his hand he held a small black moleskin, which he glanced at intermittently while delivering an electrifying, albeit head-spinning talk on the future of the Internet of Things.

Doctorow, who recently re-joined the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), contextualized the Internet of Things as an information rights struggle that requires an end to patent laws that forbid jailbreaking digital locks. Concordantly, he and the EFF have an ambitious plan: To dismantle the draconian Digital Rights Management (DRM) laws currently protected by the DMCA Section 1201. Doctorow and the EFF seek to counter this oppressive legislation with the Apollo 1201 initiative, by which they will strategically pick cases that can clearly demonstrate Congress violated the Constitution when it passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in 1998.

The Internet of Things Vs. the Inkjet Printer Model

Doctorow began his Burning Man presentation describing the dubious nature of our current computer-controlled landscape. Increasingly, we own and inhabit devices completely dependent on computers, from coffee makers and respiration devices to houses and airplanes. Without computers, the very house in which you live could become virtually uninhabitable; an unserviced Boeing air jet carrying you home could fall right out of the sky.

Hyperbole aside, the real danger of this computerized grid is that it is restricted by the corporatist clutch of the ink jet printer model, which Doctorow says represents the very worst of technology — a “covenant” by which customers become the product, and patent holders, such as mobile carriers and companies like John Deere — ruthlessly leverage aftermarket consumables that prohibit the use of 3rd party parts (including tractor circuit boards!) and disallow tethering. Even the lowly light bulb is now fully protected as patented intellectual property.

The dystopian nature of our computerized landscape includes, of course, the reality of ubiquitous surveillance. Doctorow also mentions the specter of subprime car lending, which he says will become the new housing bubble: computerized cars with location-aware ignition kill switches — if you’re late on a payment, the manufacturer just shuts off the car’s mainframe.

DMCA Restricts Innovation & Protects Corporate Control of Information

Most gadgets that contain digital content also contain digital locks. The DMCA Section 1201 prohibits removing these locks. Whether piracy is involved or not, it’s still a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. In other words, it’s a felony to ascertain and disclose information — including potentially life-altering bionic innovations— people could use to improve the world and the conditions of our lives.

Doctorow goes so far as to call the enforcement of the DMCA “deadly.” In order to enforce it, the government “makes it a felony to disclose information about defects, errors and vulnerabilities in systems that have software locks. So if there’s a bug in a system you rely on, it’s against the law to tell you about that bug because if you knew about that bug you might be able to jailbreak the system.”

A ruling against the DMCA Section 1201 could destroy the legal efficacy of digital locks, which according to Doctorow, don’t even work. After all, he says, “you wouldn’t put a safe in a bank robber’s house.”

Doctorow maintains this legal struggle goes far beyond entertainment piracy. Patent locked devices include computer-controlled respiration systems and heart defibrillators. Interestingly, Doctorow notes that in 2007 Dick Cheney’s defibrillator was made wireless so that no one could hack into his heart and assassinate him. Of course, doctors discourage the average patient from doing this because medical providers use telemetry, which is useful in treatment and may or may not also be valuable to data miners.

Destroying DRM laws and DMCA Section 1201 involves freedom of information; it’s a 1st amendment issue, which, Doctorow professes, is critical to startups that want to break out of the inkjet model. It is also critical in democratizing the Internet of Things.

The major obstacle in mounting a legal attack on the DMCA is that there is almost no litigation history because very few judges have issued rulings on it. Doctorow noted a few rare examples, one being a case where 2600: The Hacker Quarterly published source code that could crack copyright protections on DVDs. The journal’s lawyers failed to obtain a declaratory judgement. A 2004 case saw two companies bring legal action against Skylink over anti-circumvention provisions in the DMCA.

The problem with regard to DRM and patent law litigation is that the government only chooses cases they know they will win. In response, Doctorow and the EFF are currently vetting cases the government will feel compelled to defend, cases that constitute “impact litigation,” which could issue structural blows to the DMCA.

Why is This Important to the Future of Free Information

It’s highly likely Congress didn’t intend the DMCA to allow coffee maker manufacturers to prevent device modification. The original purpose was to protect Hollywood plaintiffs from piracy. Now, the law is exploited to allow all platform vendors to control digital locks and restrict practical jailbreaking activities.

No turf is more foundational than free and open Internet use, Doctorow says. His plan for a legal “Six Sigma event” aims to protect the future of progressive crypto alongside the evolution of the Internet of Things. Why is this important? This is the first time in history, he says, that normal humans outside the elite circles of oligarchy can proliferate uncrackable messages.

A new patent case, Lexmark v. Impression, presents a disturbing but related new twist to the Apollo 1201 initiative. IBM division Lexmark is arguing that DRM patent laws give them and other corporations the right to restrict how you use your devices after you buy them. This case looks like it will seek to permanently cement restrictive patent laws into place. According to Doctorow,

“This represents an unprecedented grab over your property rights to the things you own. It makes section 1201 of the DMCA — which makes it a felony to change the configuration of your electronics — look unambitious by comparison.”

Capitalising On Human Suffering

Martin Shkreli

By: Holly Walter |

Martin Shkreli, the CEO of a large pharmaceutical company that recently acquired the rights to a drug used by HIV and cancer patients, has brought the shocking callousness of unchecked capitalism into the spotlight.

Last month, Turing Pharmaceuticals bought the rights to manufacture and sell Daraprim in the United States. Daraprim is used to treat toxoplasmosis, a parasitic and life-threatening disease that affects people with compromised immune systems.

Despite being classified as an essential medicine which should be affordable to the general population by the World Health Organisation (1), Turning Pharmaceuticals has raised the price of Daraprim extortionately, from $13 per 75mg pill to a massive $750 per pill. Each 75mg pill costs only $1 to produce. It is a single source pharmaceutical product (2), which means Turing Pharmaceuticals is the only company in America that has the legal right to produce and sell this potentially life-saving drug. Patients can’t take their business elsewhere.

Let’s really put that into perspective. For each Daraprim pill sold, Turing Pharmaceuticals will make a $749 profit. Around 2,000(3) Americans use the drug every year, with the average treatment course lasting around three weeks, at a dosage of 75mg per day (4). That means Turing Pharmaceuticals stand to make a profit of $27,258,000 from Daraprim sales every year, while the average American earns just $27,000 a year, barely enough to cover the cost of a three-week course of treatment.

Though most Americans who require treatment for Toxoplasmosis will be covered by their health insurance, some won’t, and insurance companies (too motivated by profit), will be forced to raise insurance premiums and/or make their policies stricter so as to avoid paying out huge sums to people in genuine need.

While most people are shocked and disgusted by Martin Shkreli’s brutal, cold, and calculated effort to make obscene profits off the backs of other people’s misfortune, the business of capitalising from human suffering extends far beyond this story.


Another example of big business profiteering from human suffering has been brought to public attention recently through a campaign by Amnesty International. Until their recent advertising campaign, few people were aware that every two years a huge defence and security equipment exhibition called the Defence Security and Equipment International (5) is held in London Docklands. Essentially, this is a trade show where arms dealers can display the latest technology in weaponry to military representatives, some from countries renowned for human rights abuses such as Saudi Arabia. Amnesty International, who have attended the fair a number of times, have reported that illegal torture equipment and weapons such as cluster bombs, leg irons, and electric shock batons have been advertised at the event (6). The trade show, which hosted 1,500 exhibitions in 2013, is owned by Clarion Events (7), a company that organises numerous such trade shows, and reportedly turns over £200 million (8) every year. While arms companies profit from torture and (often illegal) wars, Clarion Events profits from introducing the arms dealers to totalitarian regimes at fairs like DSEI.


Profiteering from war might start with arms dealers, but that is by no means where it ends. One hundred and thirty-eight billion dollars (9) of US taxpayers’ money was spent on securing contracts with private companies during the 2003 Iraq war, for services such as security, feeding troops, and replacing infrastructure that had been destroyed during the US-led coalition invasion.

Private mercenaries played a huge role in the war in Iraq, with companies such as the infamous Blackwater reaping large monetary rewards for providing armed “security personnel”. In August 2008 alone, there were 7,121 armed “private security contractors” deployed in Iraq. (10)

The American company Halliburton was the biggest contract winner, securing $39.5 billion (11) from the US government in exchange for their services during the invasion and subsequent occupation. This included a $7 billion (12) deal for rebuilding Iraq’s oil infrastructure, a contract that would have given Iraq’s economy a huge boost had it been awarded to an Iraqi company or the state, as opposed to a multi-billion dollar US corporation.

What is perhaps most disturbing about these contracts, is that many of them were what is known as “cost-plus” (13). When a company is awarded a cost-plus contract, as well as having all their expenses covered, they are guaranteed to be paid a certain amount on top, in order to ensure that they make a substantial profit. Such contracts provide little incentive for these private companies to minimise costs. In fact, the opposite is true; they provide an incentive for contractors to spend more than necessary, as every extra dollar spent means extra profit.

It seems war is a profitable business. Foreign corporations literally made billions of dollars from the deaths of 224,000 people (14), 165,000 of those being Iraqi civilians.


War is not the only atrocity private companies are profiting from. Private prisons are proving to be another lucrative business.

The US has 5% of the world’s population, but more than 20% of the world’s prisoners (15). It has more prisoners than China, Russia, and Iran. Despite decreasing crime rates, the prison population has grown by 721% since the 1980’s, with over 500 per 100,000 people being incarcerated in 2010 (16). The adoption of draconian “tough-on-crime” laws by the US government in the 1980s (17), such as mandatory minimum sentencing for minor drug-related offences, has been a large contributing factor to the dramatic increase in incarceration rates, with the majority of inmates serving long sentences for non-violent offences.

The private prison industry has been reaping huge rewards from the mass incarceration of US citizens that began in the 1980s, when the complete management of entire prisons began to be handed over to private corporations. Corrections Corporations of America, the biggest private corrections company in the US, was the first private company to be awarded a contract that covered the complete operation of an American jail in 1984. Now CCA manages more than 65 prisons across 19 states, and in 2015, the company’s revenue was more than $1.7 billion (18).

The privatisation of prisons isn’t limited to the United States. In 1992, under John Major’s Conservative government, Wolds Prison was opened as the first privately managed prison in the UK. Under the government’s Private Finance Initiative, 25-year contracts were awarded to private companies for the construction and management of new prisons. Of 150 prisons in the UK, 14 are managed by three private companies, G4S, Sodexo, and Serco (19), and it is estimated that these companies make a 7% return on their investment (20). Privatisation doesn’t seem to lead to efficiency either; in 2013, the Ministry of Justice (21) awarded only one private prison their highest performance rating, while two were awarded the lowest rating and another two the second lowest rating.

These private prison corporations are profiting from people’s suffering. Many people in prison are addicts serving sentences for drug-related crimes, and a large number of those incarcerated in the US have mental health problems and a history of being abused. In 2012, there were an estimated 356,268 people (22) with severe mental health problems locked up in US jails.

Often such problems are only exasperated by a punitive justice system that makes criminals out of vulnerable people. Following release and supposed rehabilitation, ex-convicts struggle to find employment because of their criminal records. In the US, ex –convicts lose their right to vote and are not entitled to state benefits, housing, food stamps, or student loans. This is a recipe for re-offending. Imprisonment not only removes vulnerable people from society, it makes their reintegration following incarceration very challenging.

The rise in the business of profiting from human suffering is a reprehensible result of a society moving away from state ownership to an increasingly privatised money making machine that is the globalised economy. The hands of private businesses are reaching into the darkest corners of our world, grabbing at every possible opportunity to make a profit. But making money from disease, war, and crime is not only immoral; basic economics shows that a growing market is a profitable one. For every sick person, every war, and every crime, there is money to be made, so there is a strong motive for businesses with interests in these “industries” to want the rates of these horrors to proliferate. We will never eradicate disease, achieve world peace, or eliminate crime while corporations are making billions from humanity’s biggest crises.

What can we do?

In a world where corporations are king, we as individuals can feel powerless, believing there is nothing we can do to prevent these opportunists from capitalising on other people’s pain. But small actions can have a big influence. Public outrage and media backlash forced Martin Shkreli to backtrack on his original price hike, though he has not yet confirmed to what extent he will lower the price of Daraprim. As for preventing big business from continuing to profit from war and incarceration, the first step is raising public awareness. The facts I outlined in this article are enough to make anyone angry and indignant, but they rarely make front-page headlines. The next step is to put pressure on our governments and on corporations to stop the modern-day business of war and incarceration. To raise awareness and to make a change, we cannot work alone. Like-minded people must come together, organise, and collectivise in order to find a solution. Change starts with the people, not a person.

Disaster Capitalism: Outsourcing Violence And Exploitation

 Disaster Capitalism Making a Killing out of Catastrophe

In his just-released book, ‘Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing out of Catastrophe’, Antony Loewenstein offers us a superb description of the diminishing power of national governments and international organisations to exercise power in the modern world as multinational corporations consolidate their control over the political and economic life of the planet. 

While ostensibly a book about how national governments increasingly abrogate their duty to provide ‘public’ services to their domestic constituencies by paying corporations to provide a privatized version of the same service – which is invariably inferior and exploitative, and often explicitly violent as well – the book’s subtext is easy to read: in order to maximize corporate profits, major corporations are engaged in a struggle to wrest all power from ordinary people and those institutions that supposedly represent them. And the cost to ordinary people (including their own corporate employees) and the environment is irrelevant, from the corporate perspective. 

Loewenstein spent five years researching this book so that he could report ‘the ways in which our world is being sold to the highest bidder without public consent’. In my view, he does this job admirably. 

Taking as his starting point the observation of famed future studies and limits to growth expert Professor Jørgen Randers that ‘It is profitable to let the world go to hell’, Loewenstein set out to describe precisely how this is happening. He went to Pakistan and Afghanistan to explore the world of ‘private military companies’, Greece to listen to refugees imprisoned in ‘brutal’ privatized detention centres, Haiti to investigate its ‘occupation’ by the United Nations and ‘aid’ organizations following the earthquake in 2010, and Bougainville to understand the dilemma faced by those who want progress without the price of further corporate environmental vandalism (for which they have paid heavily already). 

Loewenstein also checked out the ‘outsourced incarceration’ that now ensures that the US rate of imprisonment far exceeds that in all other countries, the privatized asylum seeker detention centres in the UK which are the end product of ‘a system that demonizes the vulnerable’, and the equivalent centres in Australia which ‘warehouse’ many asylum seekers in appalling privatized detention centres, including those located on offshore islands. 

It is easy and appropriate to be outraged by some of the details Loewenstein provides, like the ‘three strike’ laws in the United States ‘that put people behind bars for life for stealing a chocolate bar’, but it is obviously important to comprehend the nature of the systemic crisis in which we are being enveloped by ‘disaster capitalism’ if we are to have any chance of resisting it effectively. So what are it’s key features? 

In essence, predatory corporations (which usually keep a low profile) are financed by government money (that is, your taxes), supported by tax concessions and insulated from genuine accountability, political criticism and media scrutiny while being given enormous power to provide the infrastructure and labor to conduct a function, domestically or internationally, which has previously been performed by a government or international organization. If this happens at the expense of a nation truly exercising its independence, then too bad. 

Moreover, because the corporate function is being performed ‘solely to benefit international shareholders’ which means that maximum profit is the primary aim, both the people who are supposedly being served by the corporation (citizens, refugees, prisoners…) and the corporation’s own employees are invariably subjected to far greater levels of abuse, exploitation, violence and/or corruption than they would have experienced under a public service equivalent. 

Loewenstein provides the evidence to demonstrate this fact in one case after another. The ones that I found most interesting are the use of mercenaries in Afghanistan which provided further evidence that US policy, and even its military strategy and tactics ‘on the ground’, is being progressively taken over by corporations, and the ‘occupation’ of Haiti, post-earthquake in 2010, by the UN and NGO ‘aid’ agencies which forced locals into the perpetual victimhood of corporate-skewed ‘development’. 

The use of private military companies (jargon for government-contracted companies that hire and deploy mercenary soldiers, ‘intelligence’ personnel, private security staff, construction teams, training personnel and provide base services such as food, laundry and maintenance) in Afghanistan has meant that there are far more US contractors than US soldiers in Afghanistan and ‘troop withdrawal’ means just that: troops not contractors. The occupation is far from over, Loewenstein notes. 

Moreover, he asserts, the US mission in Afghanistan is ‘intimately tied to these unaccountable forces’. As many of us have been observing for considerable time, with control of US government policy now largely in the hands of the US elite (a select group compared with the military-industrial complex of which departing president Eisenhower warned us in 1961), its controlling tentacles reach ever more deeply into US actions at all levels. This is reflected in the way that military tactics are often designed in response to the development of weapons (such as drones) rather than, as should be the case, policy and strategy determining the nature of the tactics and weapons (if any) designed and used. It’s not so much that the corporate ‘tail’ is now wagging the government ‘dog’: the ‘tail’ is now bigger and more powerful than the ‘dog’ itself. In essence, the ‘US government interest’ means the ‘US corporate interest’. 

Unfortunately, Afghanistan is not the only ‘horror story’ in Loewenstein’s book. I was particularly pained by his account of the multi-faceted violence that has been inflicted on Haiti since the devastating earthquake on 12 January 2010 that affected three million Haitians, killing more than 300,000. On 1 February 2010, US Ambassador Kenneth Merton headlined his cable ‘The Gold Rush Is On’ and went on to explain his excitement: ‘As Haiti digs out from the earthquake, different companies are moving in to sell their concepts, products and services.’ Merton’s lack of compassion for those killed, injured or left homeless by the earthquake is breathtaking. 

Tragically, it isn’t just corporate exploitation of Haitians that exacerbated the adverse impact of the earthquake. The United Nations was horrific too. The evidence clearly pointed to its responsibility for a cholera epidemic shortly after the earthquake, which affected more than 700,000 people, killing 9,000. And given the responsibility of UN troops, allegedly present to enhance safety, for previous violence against Haitians, most Haitians simply regarded the presence of UN troops as ‘another occupation’ following the French colonization, which they overthrew in 1794, and the US occupation which led to the Duvalier dictatorships, that were resisted until their defeat in 1986. 

But whatever damage the UN has done, it is the governments of the US, France and Canada, whose aid dollars via many corporations never reach those in need, NGOs like the Clinton Foundation, and the predatory corporations that truly know how to exploit a country. This is why the civil infrastructure in Port-au-Prince remains unrepaired nearly six years after the earthquake and the average city resident still lives in ‘rubbish, filth, and squalor’. Somehow, the corporations that were given the aid money to rebuild Haiti or provide other services were able to absorb billions of dollars without doing much at all. Although, it should be noted, company profits have been healthy. Are they held accountable? Of course not. Disaster capitalism at its best. 

So can we predict the outcome for Nepal following its earthquakes earlier this year? We certainly can. The corrupt diversion of aid funds to corporate bank accounts. And ordinary Nepalese will continue to suffer. 

I could go on but you will be better off checking out the book yourself. Loewenstein writes well and he has fascinating material with which to hold your interest. By the way, his personal website if you want to keep track of his journalism is here. He has recently been doing research in South Sudan. 

So is there anything I didn’t like? Well, given my own passion for analysis and strategy, I would have liked to read more about Loewenstein’s thoughts on why, precisely, this all happens and how we can get out of this mess. He is an astute observer of reality and hopefully, in future, he will be more forthcoming in making suggestions. 

In the meantime, if you are interested in understanding why many individuals have a dysfunctional compulsion to make profits at the expense of human and environmental needs, my own analysis is briefly outlined in this article: ‘Love Denied: The Psychology of Materialism, Violence and War’. But there is much more detail explaining the psychological origins of violent and exploitative behaviours in ‘Why Violence?’ 

And if you are someone who does not outsource your own responsibility to play a role in ending the elite-driven violence and exploitation in our world, you might like to sign the online pledge of ‘The People’s Charter to Create a Nonviolent World’. The Nonviolence Charter references other documents for action if you are so inclined. 

Anyway, apart from this observation, the main reason why I think this is such a good book is because it gave me much new and carefully researched information that got me thinking, more deeply, about issues that I often ponder. There is a good chance that it will enlighten you too. 

Robert J. Burrowes has a lifetime commitment to understanding and ending human violence. He has done extensive research since 1966 in an effort to understand why human beings are violent and has been a nonviolent activist since 1981. He is the author of ‘Why Violence?’.

Trawling The Farm For Human Energy (VIDEO)

Chevron’s motto “Human Energy” is a clue to the ultimate purpose of the NWO conspirators: to trawl the human farm for energy, using people like cattle.

Chevron’s motto “Human Energy” is a clue to the ultimate purpose of the NWO conspirators: to trawl the human farm for energy, using people like cattle.

In many ways, living on Planet Earth is like living on a human farm.

We are being trawled for our “human energy”. I was starkly reminded of this the other day when I saw someone walking around with a Chevron t-shirt which sported their logo and new motto: human energy. How ironic. For most people, the motto probably seems harmless enough, or maybe even benevolent, showing a kindhearted corporation caring about its employees and the world, or recognizing the importance of the people running its operations. Yet if you understand the occult foundation of corporate logos, you’ll know that Chevron’s logo is really a pyramid (2 levels of the corner edges). The pyramid is a favorite image of the New World Order, because it represents a tiny hierarchy at the top being held up by a large majority at the bottom, and symbolizes the compartmentalization of knowledge the further you go up. Just like its logo, Chevron’s motto has nothing at all to do with caring for people, and everything to do with controlling people and harvesting energy from the human farm, looking at people as nothing more than batteries that create energy (ever wonder why corporations call it “human resources”?).

The Ultimate Point of the Conspiracy: Harvesting Energy from the Human Farm

Corporations (like Chevron, spin off from Rockefeller-owned Standard Oil) have cut a deal with the real devil or harvester. Corporate heads are middle managers in the equation. They are conduits to set up human farms, and funnel human energy upwards.

Corporations (like Chevron, spin off from Rockefeller-owned Standard Oil) have cut a deal with the real devil or harvester. Corporate heads are middle managers in the equation. They are conduits to set up human farms, and funnel human energy upwards.

When looking at the headlines and news each day, it’s useful to take a step back sometimes and ask yourself: why? What’s the point of all this control? The NWO conspirators have all the money, wealth and prestige they could want. Some of them are the international banksters that own the money printing press and could literally print what they wanted. Some of them would never have enough time to spend all their money.

At a certain point the game is not about money; it’s about power and it’s about energy – or more specifically, human energy. It’s about setting up a system where people at the top sit around all day, managing the human farm, while their economic or literal slaves do all the work to benefit the controllers. Check out Stefan Molyneux’s great ebook The Handbook of Human Ownership for the precise history and techniques behind it all. NWO-owned corporations are the middle managers in this equation: they are the physical conduits through which the human energy is funneled upwards. These NWO conspirators are not the ultimate controllers, because they themselves are being demonically possessed – and the force which is doing the possessing is a group of non-human entities which many have referred to as the “Archons”.

9/11 14th Anniversary: Recall 9/11 Was a Mass Ritual to Generate Loosh

As we approach the 9/11 14th anniversary, it is worth remembering that ultimate point of that horrendous false flag operation: to ritually sacrifice people, scare the wits out of anyone else and generate a large amount of loosh. It’s no coincidence that the operation was carried out on 9/11 when 911 is the emergency number dialed in the US. Think how many times our so-called leaders have said that “the world changed forever on 9/11”. Like the hackneyed term national security, 9/11 has become the excuse for the NWO conspirators to do anything they want, whether it’s expanding Government (creation of the DHS), passing draconian legislation (The Patriot Act), attacking innocent, sovereign and foreign nations (Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.), squelching key aspects of the Bill of Rights and concocting an entirely new faceless, enemy-less and endless war – the Fake War on Terror.

Solution: Make a Strong Determination Not to Be Food on a Human Farm

the-food-of-the-gods-hg-wellsLike it or not, we live in a predatory universe. Not all of Nature is predatory, but it’s certainly an aspect which is present in a large degree. In our arrogance we may think we are at the top of the food chain, but maybe we’re not. Getting out of the human farm starts with waking up to the truth that the human farm exists. Fortunately, the signs are that a lot of people are doing that. Hopefully it will be fast enough before the NWO becomes too entrenched …

Will Monsanto Launch Another ‘Sneak Attack’ In Congress?


(Organic Consumers) Something is going to happen. If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.

So we were told recently by a Senate staffer, during one of the many meetings we’ve held with Senators to urge them to reject H.R. 1599, or what we refer to as the DARK—Deny Americans the Right to Know—Act.

Could that comment mean Monsanto is cooking up another “sneak attack,” similar to the one it conducted in 2013, that led to passage of the Monsanto Protection Act? Only this time, the sneak attack would be aimed at stomping out the GMO labeling movement?

It wouldn’t surprise us. A quick look at the lay of the land reveals that Monsanto and Big Food have several opportunities to rush the DARK Act into law, without a hearing or a stand-alone vote in the Senate.

How likely is that to happen? We don’t know for certain. But it’s worth remembering that Monsanto and Big Food are nothing if not opportunists. Please sign our petition asking key Senators to reject a Monsanto “sneak attack” that would send the DARK Act sailing into law, without due democratic process.

A Bill to End GMO Labeling for Good

In case you’re still in the dark about the DARK Act, here’s the Readers Digest backgrounder. (There’s plenty more here, including fact sheets, leaflets, talking points and toolkits).

Rep. Mike “Agribusiness Puppet” Pompeo (R-Kan.) introduced H.R. 1599 earlier this year. He then managed to rush it through the House, where it passed by a vote of 275 to 150 on July 23 (2015).

The bill is a sweeping attack on states’ rights to self-govern on the issue of GMO labeling, and on consumers’ right to know if their food has been genetically engineered. If the Dark Act becomes law, there will never be GMO labels, safety testing of GMOs, protections for farmers from GMO contamination or regulations of pesticide promoting GMO crops to protect human health, the environment or endangered pollinators.

Under what most of us would consider a fair and democratic process, the bill would move next to the Senate, where there would be the opportunity for debate, amendments and a vote.

But with the July 1, 2016 enactment of Vermont’s GMO labeling law, Act 120, looming, Monsanto is probably thinking it doesn’t have time to slog through a Senate hearing and stand-alone vote, especially as the Senate has yet to introduce its own version of the bill. And perhaps even more daunting than the July 1 deadline, is the prospect that the DARK Act might get watered down, or worse yet killed, in the Senate—a risk Monsanto would likely prefer to avoid.

Four Potential Sneak Attack Scenarios

So, what are the potential “sneak attack” scenarios that would allow Monsanto to push through the DARK Act this year, without going through the normal Senate process?

There are several. They all take advantage of the fact that Congress is seriously behind on its work, and that the threat of a government shutdown looms.

When Congress leaves its must-pass legislation to the last minute, bills don’t go through the normal legislative process where votes and amendments take place in committee hearings and floor debates. Instead, bills are negotiated behind closed doors, then, to increase the likelihood they’ll pass, brought to votes with only limited debate and amendments.

In a skit titled “You Stuck What Where?” the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart described how this last-minute legislating makes it easy for lawmakers to sneak provisions into bills, with no accountability:

It turns out, members of Congress involved in writing a bill while the bill is in subcommittee, are allowed to add any provision they want, anonymously. No fingerprints. The laws of the most powerful nation are written with the same level of accountability as internet comments.

This year, Congress could procrastinate until December and then cram all of its must-pass legislation into one “grand bargain.” This would be the perfect opportunity for Monsanto to launch a “You Stuck What Where?” sneak attack. We might not even know until it’s too late, if unscrupulous House and Senate leaders were to slip the DARK Act into a “grand bargain” that included appropriations, reauthorizations, extensions of expiring legislation, and an increase in the debt ceiling.

But, even if these bills are dealt with individually, there’s still ample opportunity for sneak attacks.

How could Monsanto sneak the DARK Act into law? Here are what we believe are the scenarios industry lobbyists are probably considering.

1.    They’ll sneak it into a must-pass spending bill.

The government needs to be funded by September 30. But Congress is way behind in its work on its spending bills. Not a single one of a dozen annual appropriations bills has passed both chambers yet this year. That increases the likelihood that lawmakers will try to pass another Continuing Resolution to keep spending at basically the same level as last year, and keep the government open.

This would give Monsanto a chance to launch the same “sneak attack” strategy it used in 2013, when the Monsanto Protection Act (Monsanto called it the Farmers Assurance Provision) was slipped into a six-month Continuing Resolution cobbled together at the 11th hour to avert a government shut-down.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) played a big role in the 2013 Monsanto Protection Act “sneak attack.” He could do it again with the DARK Act, especially if he convinces Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, to help him.

The only question for Monsanto is if the Continuing Resolution will last long enough to block the July 1, 2016 implementation date of Vermont’s new GMO labeling law. Continuing Resolutions are normally short-term, 3 months or as long as 6 months. This wouldn’t help Monsanto.

But, Congress may choose to meet its end-of-the-fiscal-year deadline (September 30) by passing a full-year continuing resolution. If this happens, any riders that get attached to the resolution would have a twelve-month lifespan. That could mean a DARK Act that would delay the implementation of Vermont’s GMO labeling law.

2.    They’ll sneak it into the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization bill.

On September 17, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will bring the Senate version of the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization bill to his committee for amendments, debate and vote. The Child Nutrition Act expires on September 30, and should be reauthorized before then for another five years. But, as with the spending bills, if Congress doesn’t finish its reauthorization work it can opt for a short-term extension.

If Sen. Roberts, who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, wanted to do a favor for his Big Ag donors who have given him $791.2k so far this election cycle, he could let Sen. Blunt, slip the DARK Act into the Child Nutrition Act. There would be little anyone could do about that, unless they were willing to risk the future of the school lunch program past September 30, when the legislation expires.

If Monsanto can’t get Sen. Roberts to act alone, the other Senators on the Agriculture Committee could be enlisted in a team effort. With a two-person majority, the committee’s 11 Republicans could vote to attach the DARK Act to the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization without any Democrat’s support.

3.    They’ll sneak it into another bill as an amendment

If Monsanto doesn’t manage to stick the DARK Act into an appropriations or reauthorization bill anonymously, it can try for an amendment to one of these bills, once either of the bills hits the Senate floor.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) hasn’t been given $1.1M from agribusiness so far this election cycle for nothing. Monsanto and its allies know that the DARK Act could live or die depending on how important it is to Sen. McConnell. As the Senate Majority Leader, he controls which bills go to the floor and which amendments may be offered.

If the DARK Act doesn’t get attached to another piece of legislation by a committee chair or by a vote in committee, it could be brought to the floor as stand-alone legislation. This rarely happens in the Senate, because it takes 60 votes (a bipartisan effort) to cut off debate and avoid a filibuster.

But amendments to legislation are different. An amendment requires only 51 votes to pass—as long as the amendment is germane. (Non-germane amendments require 60 votes.) Of course, what’s “germane” is largely up to the Senate Majority Leader.

The ability to wield these parliamentary tactics gives Sen. McConnell enormous power and will make him the top target of Monsanto’s lobbying machine.

4.    They’ll sneak it into the budget reconciliation bill.

The FY 2016 budget passed by Congress earlier this year allows for a “budget reconciliation” bill to be considered and passed by majority vote—only 51 votes in the Senate.  The bill can also be amended with only 51 votes.

For Monsanto’s sneak attack strategy, the catch is that, under the rules of this reconciliation, the underlying provisions of a reconciliation bill must have a “budget effect.” It’s very difficult to imagine Monsanto being able to make the case that passing the DARK Act could save the government money. However, the rule can be broken with 60 Senators voting to override an objection.

The “budget reconciliation” bill is optional, so it’s likely that Congress won’t act on it until 2016.

When it comes to the DARK Act, will consumers be at the table? Or, as our Senate staffer friend suggested, on the menu? We don’t know yet. But we do know which Senators might be able to give Monsanto a hand with a “sneak attack.” Please read and sign our petition.

Economic Nationalism: Alternative To Globalism


Ivory tower economists, corporate business analysts and financial experts routinely trash any discussion that America needs to institute a national economic policy that actually benefits our own country. The mantra of unchallenged doctrine that globalism is the only path for world commerce has been intensively pushed for well over the last half century. How well did the United States fare? An honest evaluation must acknowledge the diminishing middle class has paid the greatest penalty from the corporatist sedition that has destroyed internal independence and productive prosperity.

Building viable enterprises that conduct useful economic activities produce needed and desirable goods and services. Good paying jobs grow when the velocity of money flows in the “real” domestic economy.

International trade can and is often advantageous if it benefits all parties involved in prosperity from the transactions. However, in the un-free framework for maximizing the corporatism structure of above and beyond any particular country jurisdiction or trade policies, the globalists have set up the exact opposite from the much lauded “Free Trade” conduit.

The next argument points out the inconsistency in Economic Nationalism in the Age of Globalism, and asks:

“Is economic nationalism a reaction to global integration, which in essence means cooptation and domination of national markets by the strongest multinational corporations of the richest nations? Neoliberal insist on the forces of the free market operating without government interference to protect the national capitalist class and workers. Naturally, neoliberals advocating global integration have come out against the tide of economic nationalism in any form. However, the same advocates of neoliberalism have no problem supporting corporate welfare in their own countries, a system that is a form of economic nationalism. When governments use taxpayer money to bail banks and subsidize corporations that is a form of economic nationalism, just as when they lobby to have products and services of their industries marketed in countries competing with similar products and services.”

Note the error in the assumption that multinational corporatists have a beneficial relationship to any country that flies their business flag. In a perverted business culture which is now based upon the ‘Citizens United’ court decision that confirms previous precedents that a corporation is a person, the United States has lost the leverage to reverse the international trade practices that has clearly been the vehicle for domestic economic decline.

The alternative to the surrender of sovereignty and globalist blackmail can be found in paleo-conservative populism and the economic history that built America in the 19th century.

Still relevant and sound as the day it was written, Pat Buchanan on Free Trade, provides the template for a rational and constructive national economic model.

“Good for global business” isn’t necessarily good for US

Global capitalists have become acolytes of global governance. They wish to see national sovereignty diminished and sanctions abolished. Where yesterday American businesses suffered damage to their good name for selling scrap iron to Japan before Pearl Harbor, today [war materiel is routinely exported] to potentially hostile nations. Once it was true that what was good the Fortune 500 was good for America. That is no longer true, and what is good for America must take precedence. (Source: “A Republic, Not an Empire,” p.349 , Oct 9, 1999)

“Economic Nationalism”: trade only when it helps US

Rather than making “global free trade” a golden calf which we all bow down to, and worship, all trade deals should be judged by whether:

they maintain US sovereignty;

they protect vital economic interests;

and they ensure a rising standard of living for all our workers.

We must stop sacrificing American jobs on the altars of transnational corporations whose sole loyalty is to the bottom line.

“America First”: Tariffs; reciprocal trade; anti-dumping

America’s workers are being sacrificed to the Global Economy, and our leaders seem deaf to their distress.

Impose tariffs on cheap foreign imports

Prioritize the American Economy before the Global Economy by withdrawing from international organizations that imperil our financial stability & economic independence

Open foreign markets to American products by requiring reciprocal trade policies

Protect vital industries by passing tough anti-dumping legislation.

A policy of Rational Tariffs Lower Irrational Trade Deficits is a course for a rebirth in economic vigor. Tariffs Can Restore America’s Greatness sounds like the next topic for the Donald Trump campaign to take directly to the people.

Economic Nationalism is a bipartisan issue that offers hope and practical employment for the displaced and discouraged. American companies have been punished for decades under the power elite and globalist betrayers.

The Wall Street crowd despises the small investor and by inference the average hard working American. The plutocrats have built much of their ill-gotten gain on the outsourcing of an independent domestic economy.

Globalism is on the precipice of a world-wide implosion. The danger is not just a planetary economic depression, but an intentional political crisis that will demand even more control and loss of access to meaningful commerce.

The cries that international trade will stall to a halt will be used to economically enslave the populist further. Combat this devious strategy to stamp out the diminished vestiges of national ventures with a total rejection of the internationalist “Free Trade” prototype.

Demand for real jobs exists now. In order to achieve the opportunity for earning a living with dignity can be accomplished under a transition to economic nationalism.

The discontent of the electorate is distinctly observable at the Trump or Sanders rallies. The frustration is real and the outcry is becoming louder.

Nevertheless, the road to a solution cannot rely upon a government nanny state mentality. The globalist juggernaut is formidable, as much as it is destructive. In order to implement the conversion into a merchant economy, the bulwark blockage of crony finance and fatal usury need to be broken.

The start to this process begins with an awakening that globalism is the foremost enemy to America. The elites and the entire establishment are hell bent on maintaining a corrupt system. Is it not time to regain our own economic destiny?

“Environmental” Zoning Forcing Off-Grid Woman To Connect To Power Company (VIDEO)


Just as we’ve been warning about for years here at PFT, international trade deals and treaties, like the TPP or NAFTA, allow multinational corporations to sue governments and even individuals if they think their investments are at risk. And sure enough, the power company in Nova Scotia is not allowing Cheryl Smith to live off the grid.

Former Merck Rep Says Mandatory Vaccination Is For Profit and Not Public Health

brandy vaughan merck rep

Brandy Vaughan is a former sales rep for Merck & Co. – a vaccine maker – and she details how vaccine companies are using vaccines as a vehicle for massive profit and not public health. Brandy researched the safety of vaccines and found that not only do vaccines contain known toxins that can cause neurological damage, but that vaccine makers do not create the same safety studies for vaccines as they do for other drugs. This lack of true safety research of vaccines combined with the known adverse reactions to vaccination has helped Brandy to decide to never vaccinate her own child. Brandy says giving children a vaccine is like playing Russian roulette with our children and that mandatory vaccination is simply a way for vaccine makers to profit off of our children. Don’t be fooled: we do not need mandatory vaccination.

Most Scientific Research Of Western Medicine Untrustable And Fraudulent, Say Insiders And Experts

The fraudulent scientific research of Big Pharma is rife, and has been acknowledged as untrustable by medical journal editors, professors, doctors, government officials and former Big Pharma insiders.

The fraudulent scientific research of Big Pharma is rife, and has been acknowledged as untrustable by medical journal editors, professors, doctors, government officials and former Big Pharma insiders.

Fraudulent scientific research is rife throughout the world due to the power of monetary influence wielded by Big Pharma, the giant cartel of multinational pharmaceutical corporations started over 100 years ago by the Rockefellers. This fraudulent scientific research is now so widespread and pervasive it is become an open secret. There is a long list of medical journal editors, doctors and professors on the “outside”, former Big Pharma employees and executives on the “inside”, as well as government officials somewhere in between, who have stepped forward as whistleblowers and acknowledged the fraud. Money buys favorable research. Period. This is not really surprising, given the history of Rockefeller Western medicine and the fact that Big Pharma’s business model is based on “managing” disease, “treating” symptoms and keeping patients on the hamster wheel, rather than actually healing them completely.

Everyone Knows How the “Game” Works

Whistleblower Dr. Peter Rost, former vice president of Pfizer, a giant Big Pharma company, spelled it out. In the video clip embedded above, taken from the documentary One More Girl, he reveals that everyone knows how the “game” works:

“Universities, health organizations, everybody that I have encountered … are out there …. begging for money. (Big Pharma corporations) use that money to basically buy influence … (Big Pharma provides) grants for various kinds of research … make sure they (scientific researchers) became beholden … Everyone obviously knows this is how things work.”

“They (scientific researchers) are not going to continue to get money unless they’re saying what you (i.e. Big Pharma) want them to say. They know it, you know it, and it’s only maybe the public that doesn’t know it.”

In this way, the almost the entire medical scientific community has been compromised and has become thoroughly untrustworthy.

Fraudulent Scientific Research Exposed by Medical Journal Editors and Professors

Look at what numerous key experts are saying about this epidemic of fraudulent scientific research. Dr. Richard Horton is the current editor-in-chief of the British Lancet journal, which is respected as one of the best peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. He came out and stated:

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

Then look at what Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of the esteemed New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), had to say about the pervasive fraudulent scientific research:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines … I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis, a professor of disease prevention at Stanford University, published a study in a PLoS One paper entitled Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. He found that research conclusions are less likely to be true when study samples sizes are too small, when effect sizes are even smaller, and when there are major variances in study designs, definitions, outcomes and analytical modes. He highlighted the corrupting influence of Big Pharma and concluded that:

“There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false … it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true.”

Fraudulent Scientific Research Exposed by other Big Pharma Whistleblowers

The pervasive fraudulent scientific research shows that most “solid medical evidence” may in fact be quackery.

The pervasive fraudulent scientific research shows that most “solid medical evidence” may in fact be quackery.

Fraudulent scientific research has also been exposed by former executives and employees of the Big Pharma machine. In addition to Dr. Peter Rost, another Big Pharma whistleblower include Dr. John Virapen, author of Side Effects: Death. Confessions of a Pharma-Insider, who admits in this book that he “bribed a Swedish professor to enhance the registration of Prozac in Sweden.” Virapen worked for 35 years in the pharmaceutical industry internationally (most notably as general manager of Eli Lilly and Company in Sweden) where he was responsible for the marketing of several Big Pharma drugs (all of them with side effects). He exposes how Big Pharma invests more than USD$50,000 per physician per year to entice them to prescribe their products, how more than 75% of leading scientists in the field of medicine are “paid for”, and how illnesses are invented by the pharmaceutical industry to increase profit.

Another Big Pharma whistleblower is Gwen Olsen, a former Big Pharma sales rep who really knew how to push for a hard sell. She reveals the underhanded tactics she was taught by Big Pharma executives to ensure doctors were prescribing their drugs. After her niece killed herself while taking antidepressants, she changed her tune and exposed the tactics. Olsen admits that she used bribery and personal connections to sell Big Pharma meds, because she found it very difficult to sell drugs on their own merit, that the true purpose of pharmaceutical drugs is social control, that Big Pharma buys up real cures to disease, or sues companies not to release genuine cures. She also reveals how drug effects or side effects were often separated to avoid full disclosure, e.g. if the effect was on the CNS (Central Nervous System) then Big Pharma would break it down to say dizziness, fatigue, etc. so effects would look smaller.

Sadly, patients were harmed or killed due to Olsen’s (and other drugs reps like her) intentional sidestepping/misinforming physicians about a drug’s effects. Olsen refers to the “Revolving Door Syndrome”, meaning patients who are hospitalized continue to come back repeatedly, and each time lose more of their bodily functions. The drugs were brain damaging, could induce violence and were slowly killing them. Meanwhile, many drugs are found to be not more efficacious than a sugar pill (placebo).

Fraudulent Scientific Research Exposed by Governmental Whistleblower Too

Lastly, it is also useful to note that fraudulent scientific research has been acknowledged by governmental officials too. Dr. William Thompson of the CDC (the US Center for Disease Control) made headlines last year when he bravely came forth to publicly admit that he had cooked the books and fudged the data regarding vaccines. Here is an excerpt of his public statement from August 27th, 2014:

“My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

Many people were harmed (or killed) by this instance of fraudulent scientific research, especially young black baby boys under the age of 3. Consequences for Thompson or the CDC for this fraudulent scientific research? Basically none. Obama gave him legal immunity – but that’s not surprising since he also singed the NDAA (claiming the right to imprison any American indefinitely without charge or trial) and initiated his weekly Kill Lists.

Don’t Fall for Appeals to “Scientific” or “Clinical” Research when Fraudulent Scientific Research is So Rife

The lesson in all this is clear: don’t believe it when you are told by anyone involved with the Western Medical Establishment that their products are based on sound, valid, scientific, clinical evidence. Fraudulent scientific research is so widespread you can’t know anything for sure. Maybe you have to use Western Medicine, or maybe you don’t, but don’t go in blindly believing everything you’re told.

Seeding Fear – The Story Of Michael White vs Monsanto (VIDEO)

seeding fear

All giants fall. Monsanto’s day is coming.

Neil Young’s new documentary, “Seeding Fear,” tells the story of Alabama farmers Michael White and his father who were sued by the agrochemical giant in 2003 for patent infringement of its GMO soybeans.

The film I would like you to see tells the story of a farming family in America, but the same thing is happening around the world,” Young added. “It is a story that takes 10 minutes of your time to see. It is a simple human one, telling the heartbreaking story of one man who fought the corporate behemoth Monsanto, and it illustrates why I was moved to write ‘The Monsanto Years.’ – Neil Young

Elite Legislators Secretly Meet With Lobbyists In Georgia When This Happens… (VIDEO)

secret meetings

“Don’t ask us about our meeting with corporate lobbyists!” That was the message given to the 11Alive Investigators at a resort hotel in Savannah, Georgia where they tracked down state legislators having secret meetings behind closed doors.

The meetings were part of the Spring Task Force Summit of the American Legislative Exchange Council, also known as ALEC.

According to their website ALEC:

“…is America’s largest nonpartisan, voluntary membership organization of state legislators. Comprised of nearly one-quarter of the country’s state legislators, business and thought leaders, think tank scholars and individuals, ALEC provides a unique forum for diverse groups to exchange ideas and develop real, state-based solutions that encourage growth, preserve economic security and protect hardworking taxpayers.”

They claim to be a place that not only represents communities but also a place of transparency. However, they were anything but transparent at this confidential meeting that no media was allowed to attend.

When 11Alive reporters arrived to record the meeting police officers attempted to force them out of the building…

Why is it that elite legislators and corporate lobbyists feel the need to meet behind closed door just like the Bilderbergs? What laws, money deals, or plans were they discussing that were so important? Could this have anything to do with where we are headed as a nation in the near future?

How The TPP Is Going To Affect You

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) is another elite power grab giving multinational corporations more control. Learn the 5 key ways it will affect you.

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) is another elite power grab giving multinational corporations more control. Learn the 5 key ways it will affect you.

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) has moved one stepcloser to becoming law in the US after the Senate voted to give Fast Track authority to the President. The TPP however must really be considered as 1 of 3 mega treaties designed to give unprecedented control of the world’s trade to giant multinationals including Big Pharma and Big Biotech companies. The other 2 parts are the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and the TISA (Trade in Services Agreement); together the TPP, TTIP and TISA form the 3 T-Treaties to cement the corporatocracy as our global ruler. The TPP is focused on 12 countries in the Pacific which contribute 40% of the world’s GDP (US, Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei) while the TTIP harmonizes trade between the US and the EU. The TISA included the US, EU, Australia and other nations (totaling 24) and aims to privatize the worldwide trade of services such as banking, healthcare and transport.

Notably, none of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are included in any of the 3 T-Treates, as they have clearly challenged and disturbed the Anglo-American dominated NWO elite too much. Obama is now on the verge of pushing through 2 giant laws in his presidency: the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the TPP-TTIP-TISA (Obamatrade). How interesting then that Obama’s handler is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who serves the Rockefellers, who own Big Pharma and have major interest in the other corporations which will benefit most from this …

The Very Word Secrecy is Repugnant in a Free and Open Society

All of the 3 T-Treaties being negotiated right now are being deliberately kept hidden from the public. We only know about them thanks to WikiLeaks. In fact, the secrecy has been so stringent that no electronic devices or note-taking is allowed, and access is restricted to only Congress staffers with a high enough security clearance. Look what US Senator Barbara Boxer had to say about the secrecy of the TPP:

“Well, let me tell you, what you have to do to read this agreement. Follow this. You can only take a few of your staffers who happen to have a security clearance because god knows why this is secure.  This is classifiedIt’s nothing to do with defense. It has nothing to do with going after ISIS. It has nothing to do with any of that, but it is classified. So I go down with my staff that I could get to go with me, and as soon as I get there, the guard says to me, hand over your electronics.

Okay, I give over my electronics.  Then the guard says, you can’t take notes. I said, I can’t take notes? Well, you can take notes, but you have to give them back to me, and I’ll put them in a file. So, I said, wait a minute. I’m gonna take notes, and then you’re gonna take my notes away from me, and then you’re going to have them in a file, and you can read my notes?”

If the TPP were really good for Americans, why the secrecy? Why not openly let anyone read the text and decide for themselves? “The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society,” as JFK famously said in his 1961 Waldorf-Astoria speech where he exposed the insidious influence that Secret Societies were having on the USA. He was killed for going against these secret groups. Incidentally George H. W. Bush, who was heavily involved in the JFK assassination, just so happens to be part of Secret Societies like the Skull and Bones Club of Yale University, as well as others like the Bohemian Club which engage in mock (or real) Satanic ritual at Bohemian Grove.

The TPP is a major cause for alarm for ordinary citizens living in a TPP country. It targets some of your most fundamental rights relating to access to knowledge. It undermines the abilities of nations to make their own laws to protect their own businesses and citizens. As Julian Assange of Wikileaks wrote:

“If instituted, the TPP’s IP (Intellectual Property) regime would trample over individual rights and free expression, as well as ride roughshod over the intellectual and creative commons. If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you’re ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs.”

The following are 5 specific ways the TPP will affect you as an average citizen in the US, Australia, New Zealand or any other TPP nation.

TPP Effect #1: Weakening of the Minimum Wage

tpp-outsource-middle-classThe most obvious way the TPP will hurt lower or middle class Americans is through the outsourcing of jobs. We have already seen the disastrous effect of NAFTA in this area. Now, American workers will have to compete with those in Vietnam (who get a minimum wage of around 52 cents an hour) and Mexico (who get a minimum wage of around 62 cents an hour) according to this source. Did you know that Brunei does not even have a minimum wage? Why would a corporation pay $15, $10 or even $7.25 when it could pay its workers less than 70 cents per hour?

How this will affect you: the TPP could well mean that many people working minimum wage jobs will have to work for less, or lose their job outright.

TPP Effect #2: More Censorship, Less Freedom of Expression

The internet has been a 2-edged sword in the battle for freedom. It has allowed the elite to conduct mass surveillance on the populace in an unprecedented amount; however, it has also allowed for fantastic freedom of expression and the swift sharing of information. Now, more than ever before, you can get real news and analysis about events as they break, rather than the usual mainstream media spin and propaganda. To counter this, the elite have bringing in their cherished tactic of “copyright” as a stealthy method to enact censorship and stifle freedom of expression. The less freedom of expression there is, of course, the more they can get away with their schemes of centralization of power.

The TPP’s chapter on IP (Intellectual Property) Rights shows the emphasis on extending copyright terms. As the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) wrote in its piece The TPP Copyright Trap:

“The ratcheting upward of copyright terms comes at a time when Internet and other digital technologies have spurred a revitalization of the world’s public domain: the treasury of works that has passed out of copyright. Thanks to digital distribution, public domain material is now globally available for almost zero cost for study, enjoyment and re-use … The additional 20 years of copyright protection amounts to a misappropriation from the public domain. It inhibits the creation of new works that build upon the past and exacerbates the orphan works problem. Even the U.S. Copyright Office has indicated that the copyright term may be too long, and proposed options for mitigating its deleterious effects.”

Even bloggers, authors, documentary makers and others who want to use excerpts of copyrighted work for purposes of criticism may be limited by the proposed “Three-Step Test” language which puts restrictions on fair use. This chapter of the TPP will also place new demands on your ISP (Internet Service Provider), requiring them to become digital police. They will be expected to surveil what their users access on the Internet and to enforce copyright law!

How this will affect you: the TPP will require the signing nations to adopt criminal sanctions for those found guilty of copyright infringement, meaning you could end up in prison for sharing music, videos or other things online.

TPP Effect #3: Private Corporate Courts

The ISDS tribunal of the TPP would create corporate courts above national sovereignty.

The ISDS tribunal of the TPP would create corporate courts above national sovereignty.

Another disturbing feature of the TPP is the pushing of IDIS (Investor State Dispute Settlement) tribunals as a replacement to the legal judicial courts of nations. It’s another stepping stone to the One World Government. The IDIS mechanism is essentially a private corporate court, an international tribunal of private lawyers, who would have the power to award compensation money to big corporations if they found that a TPP nation’s laws prevented that corporation from making money. In other words, big corporations would get “lost profit” dollars and the taxpayer of that nation would have to foot the bill!

ISDS poses a grave danger to the law. As US Senator Elizabeth Warren points out in this video, ISDS allowed the following things to happen:

– A French company sued Egypt because Egypt raised its minim wage;

– A Swedish company sued Germany because Germany tried to phase out nuclear energy after the Fukushima disaster;

– A Dutch company sued the Czech Republic because it didn’t bail out a bank that the Dutch company partially owned; and

– Philip Morris is trying to use ISDS to stop Ecuador introducting new laws to protect its consumer from cigarettes/tobacco.

How will this affect you: the TPP will mandate that your nation will no longer be able to make laws banning toxic products (e.g. pharmaceutical drugs, GMO-laden food, etc.) and that you will have little or no legal recourse if you hurt, damaged or poisoned by them.

TPP Effect #4: Stronger Patents, More Control for Big Pharma

John D. Rockefeller, the instigator of the Rockefeller Empire, is reported to have said the competition is sin. His oil empire became the backing for Big Pharma, still owned by the Rockefellers to this day. It is no surprise that the game is still the same: try to eliminate competition and gain a monopoly. The TPP’s chapter on Transparency (Transparency and procedural fairness for pharmaceutical products and medical devices), according to this analysis by Deborah Gleeson, is about more power for Big Pharma:

“The purported aim of the Annex is to facilitate ‘highquality healthcare’ but the Annex does nothing to achieve this. It is clearly intended to cater to the interests of the pharmaceutical industry. Nor does this do anything to promote “free trade”: rather it tightly specifies the operation of countries’ schemes for subsidizing pharmaceuticals and medical devices with the aim of providing greater disclosure, more avenues for pharmaceutical industry influence and greater opportunities for industry contestation of pharmaceutical decision making”.

She later states that the TPP “is clearly intended to target New Zealand’s Pharmaceutical Management Agency (PHARMAC)” while others have discussed how other nations in the TPP like Australia may be forced to adopt US-style healthcare – a system which kills around 225,000 per year (including 106,000 from adverse effects of Big Pharma drugs) according to Dr. Starfield’s study. This provisions also aims to make it very difficult for makers of generic drugs to compete with Big Pharma’s brand-name drugs. The idea is to force all the other TPP nations outside the US to use only brand-name drugs. Additionally, did you know that Big Pharma through the TPP is pushing for patents on animals and patents on surgical methods? How can Big Pharma possibly claim any basis for being able to patent an animal given the longstanding tradition of patents not been granted for things in and of Nature?

How this will affect you: How would you like it if your surgeon told you he/she could not operate on you because a particular surgical technique was copyrighted and private property? How would like having to pay more for “brand-name” medicine because the exact same kind (the generic kind) is deliberately unavailable?

TPP Effect #5: Less Environmental Protection

The TPP’s Environment Chapter functions more as a PR exercise than anything else. There are little or no enforcement mechanisms contained within it. The Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund and National Resources Defense Council released a joint analysis which concluded the TPP was a step backward from a 2007 agreement under the Bush administration. As they write:

“Instead of committing TPP countries to “adopt, maintain, and implement” the laws, regulations, and all other measures to fulfill its obligations under MEAs and subject those obligations to dispute settlement, each TPP country is merely committed to “affirm its commitment” to implement the MEAs to which it is a Party (Article SS.4.1).

So the benchmark has been changed from being legally required to adopt and implement environmental policy – and facing court and fines if they don’t – to merely affirming commitment. Do you think soulless corporations and their sociopathic CEOs are honorable enough to uphold environmental standards without being legally and financially forced to? If you do I have some oceanfront property for you in Colorado and Switzerland. Reminds me of how the supposed constitutional lawyer Barack Hussein Obama swore to uphold the US Constitutioon and then proceeded to form Kill Lists to extrajudicially assassinate people (including US citizens abroad) and sign laws like the NDAA which allows the US Government to indefinitely detain Americans without charge or trial (4th Amendment anyone?).

How this will affect you: Expect less environmental safeguards and more ways the corporatocracy can poison the environment without having to face any legal or financial consequence.

The Trans Pacific Partnership is another stepping stone to the totalitarian New World Order, by the gradual creation and merging of economic unions and free trade agreements. Spread the word about it.

Corporations vs. Entrepreneurship


The corporate culture would have you believe that it is the foremost structure of the economy. That the entrepreneur is a nuisance and is tilting at windmills. Since competition is a dirty word, the innovative venture poses no threat, but might qualify as an acquisition. Only if the business model is such that duplicating the endeavor is too time consuming or difficult will the corporatist take interest. Yet, in the end, the design of the corporate organization is more about brute force than creative invention. So why is it so difficult for the enterpriser to get their project off the ground? And what is the compelling motivation to start your own business?

An independent businessperson is a much different breed from the corporate ladder climber. Consider the 7 Reasons to Ditch the Corporate World for a Career at a Startup.

  1. Getting recognition
  2. Having more responsibility
  3. Bonding with coworkers
  4. Learning from true innovators
  5. Embracing new opportunities
  6. Putting your strengths to work
  7. Working toward the money

If you have never been part of a small business and your only experience is with a corporatist organization, some of the above aspects may seem foreign if not outright dangerous. In order to help define the difference between the two mindsets, Jun Loayza founder of Future Delivery provides the following assessment in Corporate World vs Entrepreneurial Life.

“The corporate world is calling with nice cars, fancy lunches, and guaranteed paychecks — if you’re willing to put your dream company on hold and sit in a low-walled prison five days a week.  If you’re torn between stable income and the wish fulfillment of a bold new venture, listen up to someone who’s had the pleasure and pain of living in both worlds.”

Work/Life balance vs Lifestyle

Steady Income vs No Money

Good Enough vs Better than All the Rest

These headings compare the vast differences in thinking, temperament, objectives and goals. Start-up attempts usually begin with an idea for a product or service that is not currently available. Formulating a business plan and identifying a method to monetize a return is often overlooked, when the visionary is engaged with the excitement that a successful rollout could generate.

A small business owner of a more established sector operation is more concerned with surviving competition, maintaining margins, expanding market share and gaining access to capital for growth and expenses. This difference from the dreamer turned practical, separates the emphasis both apply.

So the similarities between the merchant and the innovative entrepreneur are far more in common than the style used by Corporate America Is Killing Your Start-up Dreams. The Inc. publication presents aspects of the corporate culture and how it works.

Note the vast difference in the business model employed by corporations from the entrepreneur. While they preach company loyalty, corporatists actually exercise a pattern of expediency.

Corporate America Creates a False Sense of Security

The corporate climb is slow and at each rung you’re reminded that there is so much still to do before reaching the next level

Knowledge is power

Mitigating risk is key

You only live once

Corporatism 101 presents background on the difference between corporatism and corporations. However, the blunt distinction in both prove to be light years different from an economy driven by  creative and pioneering projects that advance, grow and create actual new wealth.

Corporate mores seldom exhibit a passion to improve the economic well being of consumers, but frequently tap the consumerism of the customer to keep the engine of materialism as the life blood of business.

Add to this aspect the financial sector of the corporate economy and the lack of any real competition is vividly demonstrated. There is little room for start-up financial ventures, when the source of capital access is mainly reserved to the largest of corporate companies.

It is because of this reason that most plans fail. Money is a necessary ingredient to float a start-up. Finding an angel financier to raise the needed venture capital is usually reserved to seasoned business people.

Nonetheless, for those brave souls who strike out on their own, the risks are substantial. What happens if your flop? Going back to a previous life may not be an option.

Why Corporations Won’t Hire An Entrepreneur defines the issue well.

“Corporations have become factories of mental models created over decades of controlling how and what people think through the influence of power and money. The attitudes have created cultures of “we are in control and we pay you to follow the rules we make“.

These mental models were designed to build organizations where compliance and productivity of human labor determined profitability.  Subsequently organizations were built around a hierarchy of control similar to the military where the strategy was to beat the enemy.  This mental model is dependent on compliance.  Compliance through control of resources via influence of power and money has proven to be limiting and costly.”

Basically, the dilemma is that forced compliance works better than free association in the trenches of economic dominance. The essential notion of a free market is an illusion. In the real world of goods and services the big box store, energy supplier, food processor and financial services are the realm of protective trade secrets.

While it might be easy to analyze how a large retailer operates, it may not be as transparent on how that business maintains its dominance over their own market share. The entrepreneur is constantly fighting to get into the game. Carving out a small niche that flies under the corporate radar screen is the best chance to refine and expand a start-up.

Forget about transferring the entrepreneurship mindset into the corporate structure. Both planets orbit in different universes. With the systemic decline in a viable economy, the unemployment stats and the underemployment part time jobs that emerge from the corporatist companies allow for little future for our society or individual security.

America was built by daring entrepreneurs long before the corporate system.

Leaked TPP Trade Bill Healthcare Annex

Proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade legislation and its companion Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)  are anti-consumer stealth corporate coup d’etat freedom and ecosystem-destroying measures – nightmarish by any standard.

They let corporate predators establish unrestricted supranational global trade rules overriding national sovereignty and domestic laws.

They serve investor rights at the expense of public ones. They permit anything goes for profit. They create a world more unfit to live in than already.

On June 10, WikiLeaks published the draft TPP Healthcare Annex (so-called Annex on Transparency and Procedural Fairness for Pharmaceutical Products and Medical Devices).

It establishes pharmaceutical and medical device procurement and reimbursement rules government healthcare authorities must follow.

Vague language creates opportunities for drug and medical device companies to challenge Medicare and healthcare program procedures of the 12 TPP-bloc countries.

Consumer friendly policy reforms would be constrained – including the ability of governments to contain rising prices making them unaffordable for millions.

Big Pharma wants profits protected over public health, said WikiLeaks. It wants them maximized.

An earlier Healthcare Annex was released in 2011. Some harmful provisions were removed in the latest version. Global Trade Watch (GTW) says serious questions remain unanswered – vital for people to know, including:

“What guarantees are there that the TPP’s requirements would not override existing procedures for Medicare?”

The US Trade Representative’s Office (USTR) claims Medicare fully complies with TPP provisions.

“Yet (their) ambiguous language…leaves our domestic healthcare policies vulnerable to attack by drug and (medical) device manufacturers,” said GTW.

Could companies use Healthcare Annex provisions to cover expensive products “without a corresponding benefit to public health,” GTW asked?

Medicare reimburses for “reasonable and necessary” products and treatment. TPP “recognize(s) the value (of drugs and medical devices through the) operation of competitive markets (or their) objectively demonstrated therapeutic significance” – regardless of effectiveness or affordability.

Medicare permits limited reimbursement appeals only. Companies might argue TPP rules permit unrestricted reviews.

“Would the TPP constrain pharmaceutical reform efforts in the US,” asked GTW? Healthcare Annex provisions apply to future coverage determinations as well as current ones.

Healthcare reform advocates want soaring drug prices curtailed by establishing a “national formulary” enabling the government to get substantial discounts passed on to consumers. TPP won’t allow it.

“Could the inclusion of this Annex in the TPP bolster the case of a pharmaceutical company that is suing the United States,” asked GTW?

Investor-State Dispute Settlement procedures have been included in US trade agreements since the 1990s. Foreign companies may challenge government policies – claiming they potentially curtail future profits. In return, they demand “unlimited sums in taxpayer compensation.”

GTW asked if the Healthcare Annex boosts their case – at the expense of the public interest. Companies could claim government policies compromised their profit expectations and demand compensating reimbursement at taxpayers’ expense.

Much about TPP remains secret – vital information people have a right to know. If enacted, Washington wants it extended to all Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) members – about 40% of the world’s population.

Attorney Judit Rius Sanjuan for Doctors Without Borders says TPP “will increase the cost of medicines worldwide, starting with the 12 countries that are negotiating” TPP.

Hugely profitable drug companies want unconstrained rights to charge whatever the market will bear. They claim high prices are needed to compensate for billions of dollars spent for research – without acknowledging how much governments in America and elsewhere pay for, passing on scientific research information to drug companies cost-free.

GTW director Lori Wallach calls the Healthcare Annex leak “the latest example of why fast-tracking the TPP would undermine the health of Americans and the other countries and cost our government more, all to the benefit of pharma’s profits.”

Another Round Of Fake Environmental Concern

cop21 paris 2015

(The Real Agenda) Transnational oil corporations are just one group of many that bear responsibility for the destruction of the environment, yet, they love to appear as if they are concerned about the health of the planet.

Big Oil has been behind fake environmental movements for the past half a century, financing NGOs and philanthropic organizations that present themselves as defenders of the environment but that are nothing less than corporate creations whose role is to keep people distracted while they go about destroying the future of billions of people.

While many oil companies claim to have a firm corporate social responsibility plan which supposedly includes avoiding environmental pollution, they always manage to dump chemicals into landfills and to use dangerous substances in the products they manufacture.

As the next round of environmental discussions on so-called Climate Change is set to take place in Paris this year, oil companies are already asking to be let into the conversations so they can speak directly with representatives of the United Nations and national governments.

The fake environmental movement and the UN could not have a better partner than Big Oil in their attempt to establish a legally binding universal agreement at the end of the United Nations Climate Change Conference next November in Le Bourget, France.  Both Big Oil and the UN have worked hand in hand to make people surrender their rights to property and individual liberty because “climate doomsday” is around the corner.

Unfortunately for them, more people are now aware of the hoax that anthropogenic global warming and climate change really are, which is why the UN and large international corporations are now partnering to secretely approve a resolution that would mandate the end of civilization as we know it.

As we have reported ad nauseum before, Big Oil and other industries are strong supporters of the carbon credits scheme, the system that codifies pollution worldwide, as it promotes planetary contamination in exchange for fees that only the largest companies will be able to afford.

In a recent statement sent by six major European oil companies to Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, they claim that “climate change is a critical challenge to our world”, which is why they want full access to the climate negotiations that will take place in Paris.

BP Group, BP, Eni, Royal Dutch Shell, Total Satoil are trying to get a place at the conversations in Paris later this year, where the UN intends to approve mechanisms to replace the Kyoto Protocol.

According to UN officials, the main goal of the meeting is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, which the UN and other environmental organizations claim to be the cause of global warming. The same discussion is taking place at the governmental level.

The major economies of the world are presenting their commitments to reduce emissions. And companies involved in fossil fuels are in the crosshairs of an economic model that  leads to the total decarbonisation of the world’s economy, as recognized last week by Figueres.

In this situation, the six European oil giants have sent the letter to the UN in an attempt not to be left out of the agreements. The companies say they want to “open a direct dialogue with the UN and national governments”.

The formula they propose is the same that exists now, except it would be a mandatory one if approved. They want to put a price tag on carbon emissions and the official establishment of carbon markets for buying and selling carbon allowances, a fraudulent scheme which now moves about $34 billion annually. A large chunk of this money is paid to people like Al Gore, who owns his own carbon trade company.

These six major companies believe that carbon pricing can “discourage high emissions” of CO2 and “reduce uncertainty which will help stimulate investment in low carbon technologies.” For that, the oil companies ask for “transparent, stable and ambitious regulatory frameworks” which they will undoubtedly seek to influence and control.

“We recognize that the current trend in emissions of greenhouse gases is higher than what is necessary to limit temperature increase to less than two degrees above pre-industrial levels”, stated in their letter the leaders of the six major oil companies.

“The challenge now is how to meet increased demand for energy with less CO2″, they added. “We are ready to play our part”, say these companies.

The flawed science referred to by the six oil companies in their letter is the same provided by the UN in multiple documents. This so-called science purports that desirable planetary temperature should be just above pre-industrial levels, which according to the UN can only be reached by completely decarbonizing human activity. In truth, despite the continuous increase in CO2 emissions for the past decade or so, there has been no measurable increase in global temperatures.

Even mainstream media have been obligated to report on the fact that data that shows a relation between increases in CO2 emissions and global warming have been manipulated to fit the politics of global warming and climate change so that European and American corporations, through their UN partners, have an excuse to push for limits to development in third world nations.

Once Again, The World Marches


They marched in Australia. They marched in Africa. They marched in Canada. They marched in Dublin and London and all across Europe.

Here in the U.S., we marched in Portland, Maine and Seattle, Wash., and in between, in cities large and small, coast to coast.

On May 23, 2015, the world marched against Monsanto.

Monsanto isn’t alone in its greed-driven quest to sell toxic chemicals, to monopolize the world’s seed supply, to put small farmers out of business, to keep consumers in the dark about the pesticide-laden GMOs in our food. Dow, Dupont, Syngenta, Bayer. They are all destroying our soil and our food—which will ultimately lead to the destruction of the very ecosystem that sustains us.

But Monsanto has become the face of everything that’s wrong with our food and farming system today. And for that matter, everything that’s wrong with our Democracy.

So we marched. In great numbers. All over the globe.

And we’ll do it again next year. And every year after, as long as it takes. Until we rebuild our soil, our farms, our forests, our food system, and our health.

Congressional Sellout On TPP Fast Track


There is a simple reason why the Congress is held is such ill repute. Leadership in both parties are total agents for the Plutocrats that have systematically destroyed our economy with their globalist corporatist model that results in national impoverishment. The only startling pattern to this bipartisan betrayal is that the public continues to accept their excruciating fraud with only a whimper of discontent. BATR has covered the TPP Fast Track issue intensively. The most consistent observation is that the public, in this sinking economy, has ignored the impact that will accelerate, as the leaks from this secretive agreement become known.

Debating the facts or the “so called” merits of free trade is like talking to a deaf mute that is blind. Sign language will not work, nor will beating a drum communicate the war message that the globalist plot to fatally cripple our domestic economy is the real goal of all the internationalist trade agreements.

Corporatism has no national loyalty. Authentic conservative economic nationalism has been sold out by the political class, who are funded by monopolistic transnational’s dedicated to a New World Order of centralized control and rationed resources for the general public.

Naïve Conservative, newborn Tea Party members and wishful Republican enthusiasts expressed rejoice with the GOP gaining a Senate majority in the 2014 election. Yet it was unequivocally ordained that the new majority in the Senate would maintain the same destructive leadership treachery under Harry Reid. The Mitch McConnell leadership era only differs in style when it comes to pushing the same globalist agenda.

The Washington Post reports that Obama wins trade victory in the Senate.

“A coalition of 48 Senate Republicans and 14 Democrats voted for Trade Promotion Authority late Friday, sending the legislation to a difficult fight in the House, where it faces more entrenched opposition from Democrats.”

Without McConnell’s complicity, many Democrats would have had to cast their support for fast track since many of the no votes allowed for cover from their true sentiments. However, the overwhelming Republican acceptance illustrates just how futile it is to place trust in the Senate.

A Senate of Subversion details the customary duplicity that applies to both parties. Nonetheless, the immediate circumstance at hand asks, Could Conservatives Push TPA Over the Finish Line?

According to Roll Call, Republican phony conservatives show their true colors.

“While many on the right are still hedging their position on the TPA, there appears to be some conservative support for the trade process legislation. And with congressional Democrats increasingly taking a firmer line against the TPA, which would give expedited consideration to the Trans-Pacific Partnership under negotiation with 11 other countries, conservatives could be the key to getting the TPA over the finish line.”

Add the ridiculous admission of Orrin Hatch on Trade Bill:  ‘I DON’T KNOW FULLY WHAT’S IN TPP MYSELF’ Ironically, Hatch also admits he doesn’t know what is in the TPP deal, while at the same time he objects to the push for more transparency prior to any crucial votes”, and you have a classic example that Senators simply vote for their corporatist masters.

The next report from Breitbart demonstrates just how futile it is to place faith in a Republican Senate. Only Two Republicans Admit They Actually Read Secret Obama Trade Deal —Both Unsupportive, separates the lone responsible Senators from the rest of the pack.

“Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has on numerous occasions publicly stated he has read the TPP—which is locked away in a secret room in the Capitol, access to which only lawmakers and certain staffers with high-level clearance are provided—and a spokeswoman for Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)  on Thursday told Breitbart News that the Senator has read it as well. Despite asking press staff for every U.S. Senate Republican office throughout the day Thursday if their office’s senator has visited the secret room to read the deal—specifically the controversial “living agreement” contained within it—only Sessions and Lee would confirm they visited the room to read it.”

Now if you want a detailed history lesson on Fast Track, no better analysis is provided than, The TPP and the TTIP: How Congressional Republicans Lie to Approve Obama’s Trade Deals.

“The crucial vote in the U.S. Senate was on 14 May 2015, when the issue was whether to grant these deals “Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority,” which is what Presidents since Nixon’s time have used in order to get Congress to cede to the Executive, the U.S. President, virtually 100% of Congress’s Constitutionally mandated role in treaty drafting and approval — making it effectively an entirely Presidential matter. This “Fast Track” was invented by the Republican President Nixon in 1974, in order to bring about an Executive dictatorship in the passage-into-law of international-trade treaties that would otherwise stand no real chance of becoming law, because too many members of Congress would lose their seats if they voted directly for such horrendous treaties. So, instead, there is now instead, for these super-terrible international-trade deals, “Fast Track,” as constituting the crucial vote. This trick enables a member of Congress to say that he or she had voted for “Fast Track” instead of for the trade-deal itself. (He then has actually voted to eliminate the Constitution’s requirement that any treaty needs two-thirds of the U.S. Senators to vote for it in order for the treaty to become law; that two-thirds is reduced by “Fast Track” to a standard 50%. Though in the U.S. Constitution international treaties were handled as requiring especially high caution in order for them to be able to become law, Nixon created this way around the Constitutional requirement, this “Fast Track” trick that should be thrown out by the U.S. Supreme Court.) The presumption here, in shunting these important things off into a procedural trick, is that voters are stupid enough to be easily fooled, and this is it: “Fast Track.”

When Boehner Praises Trade Bill Passage, the complicity of the Speaker of the House  registers for all to see.

“Trade helps create good-paying American jobs, so it’s good news that the Senate has put us one step closer to eliminating trade barriers. These reforms have the support of farmers, manufacturers, small business owners, and Americans from all walks of life, and it’s not hard to figure out why,” Boehner says in a statement.

Drawing reasonable conclusions Devvy Kidd offers up a perceptive viewpoint in Boehner and McConnell Working to Kill off America as we know it: TPP.

What can you do?

  1. STOP voting for incumbents who are are not constitutional bull dogs. STOP voting the same incumbents back into office every two years (House) and six years (Senate) even though the Seventeenth Amendment was NOT ratified by enough states, few in America care. My Seventeenth Amendment lawsuit is in the Third District Court of Appeals in Austin, Texas; the next brief is due July 3rd. I will keep you posted. Are conservatives happy they voted back in all the same incumbents last November who continue to stab us in the back?
  2. Last month the trade deficit was $40 BILLION dollars. That’s America’s wealth being sucked out of this country. Buy Made in USA (ahuge listing of companies) so American companies can expand and hire Americans. Ask where you shop. Let them know you will order on line, but we support American workers first. We CAN create a huge job boom. That means fruits and vegetables, too. See:One Million Jobs Project – take five minutes to read and watch:

Folks if you want to see the future, rely on Pat Buchanan: If Republicans Pass Trade Deal, They’ll Never Win The Presidency, because the economic record is perfectly clear. Challenging Republican leadership usually goes unreported.

“How does [House Budget Chairman] Paul Ryan explain the fact that we’ve had $11 trillion in trade deficits since the NAFTA decade?” Buchanan posed. [T]ake a look at our country: why is China suddenly all these gleaming new cities and factories and plants to build the silk road, while the United States of America is indebted $2.5 trillion to China and Japan?”

Facing up to this consequence of the most destructive trade treaties of the last several decades is something the Republicans have avoided. Purging the Buchanan wing from the GOP has produced a total breakdown in even the appearance that there is a difference in the parties. The political class are dedicated internationalists and are bent upon the destruction of an independent domestic economy where Middle America can exist.

What good is it to have a majority in both legislatures in Congress if your party power brokers continue to betray genuine conservatives? The Radical Reactionary essay, The Irrelevance of the Republican Party is a must read resource that traces the saga and argues that the GOP cannot be reformed.

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have failed miserably in their leadership roles. Paleo-conservatism is the only alternative to internationalist neo-Cons. Embrace populism and reject the GOP elitism.
