3 of The Worst TPP Clauses Explained in Plain English

11/16/20159 Comments

After years of secretive negotiations in closed-door meetings and James Bond-level shenanigans designed to keep the deal under lock and key, the full text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement has finally been released for public scrutiny. But have you actually read it? Well, unless you bring your legal decoder ring, you probably can't. Never fear, however, this week in the subscriber newsletter James breaks down three of the worst TPP clauses for you in plain English and explains how the deal is even more onerous than we imagined.

    howdy all, no replies to this story yet… It’s hard to digest, even the plain english versions… but hey, there’s been a distraction in France just in time for you forget about TPP paperwork release…

      Michael 2! very interesting point, most false flags like the recent Paris attacks are going to have a sophisticatedly clustered set of motivations behind them. The timing you suggest is all here for this motive-to-distract utility that you raise. Even for us “conspiracy theorists” we’d normally be totally focused on “like” events, such as the recent downing of the Russian airliner over Cairo as retaliation for Russia’s blocking another US/NATO genocidal invasion of Syria. But as JC so often says it’s a 3D world.

      Thanks to James and forums like this we can pool our resources.

      The 3 points in this article are disturbing and seem to hit the nail on it’s head regarding the most far-reaching aspects of the long-term agenda of the “powers that shouldn’t be.” However, again, these powers are quite sophisticated and they probably already anticipated the contingency that the more far-reaching stuff might fall out of any version of this “partnership,” that does get through. That means they are relying on some of the other “less egregious” aspects getting through the process.

      They have all the time in the world and they’ll get what they can get now, and continue with their updated business plan when the dust settles here.

      The entire agreement needs to be rejected en face, as a matter of principle, if only for the simple reason that it was developed behind closed doors. The 90-day public review policy is a total sham, part of the shenanigans that the criminals that are running this show hope we all just accept as a normal part of the process, but that is actually the most egregious part of it.

      It is not just an entirely absurd way of developing public policy, it reminds one of David Rockefeller’s most notorious proclamations:

    This story, although not as easy to understand as some might like or need, is still a good place to get started for many. Obviously I’m a subscriber but how can we put this kind of quality reporting out on other social media sites, e.g. G+, Facebook, etc. to help find a larger audience? I love JC’s work and will continue to support but we need all who can comprehend to have a chance to ponder the information presented here.

    Hi, David Malone in “The Mind Renewed” podcast No 57 gives some additional information and examples how the arbitration has been used to extort sovereign governments (read the taxpayers).

    Thank you for this article and for translating a layman version. As we manage high traffic digital properties it is most concerning.

    i know it sounds rather Pollyannaish, but I’ve emailed our new Canadian Prime Minister encouraging him to walk away from the TPP and NATO. This is pretty old-school political engagement, but i figure the PMO looks at these messages and at least tabulates them, applies a multiplier formula to reflect the number of other Canadians who feel the same way on an issue (but whose hands have atrophied since letter-writing has gone obsolete) and briefs the PM. Every little pebble dropped in the pond makes a ripple.

    The more important action is to share this information widely in ones social sphere. That’s the most effective multiplier.

    Thank you so much, James, for doing the heavy lifting for all of us. Very admirable and praiseworthy.

    As they say about that other James, you are the hardest working man in the buisness.

    Keep up the great work!

    from a recent article by Global Research, see http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-mega-regional-trade-agreements-ttp-ttip-vs-bilateral-investment-treaties/5514750, i found a very informative ebook about BITs, bilateral investment treaties, that may be downloaded for free at http://www.bothends.org/uploaded_files/inlineitem/Rethinking-BIT-Book_epub.epub. at the time of writing, 3200 BITs existed, 10% of which registered in the netherlands with its 12,000 letterbox companies containing €3,700 billion of foreign direct investment.
    relax, bombing the post office will not hurt this concentration of evil.
    it so appears that ttp/ttip-like constructs have grown and developed over decades, and a lot of experience exists around the destruction these ideas may bring about. the examples speak for themselves.
