TPPA Corporate Power Grab About to be Finalised

Prime Minister John Clark and former PM Helen Key at the UN this week.

Talks by trade ministers involved in the Trans Pacific Partnership have been pushed out by a further day - a sign the agreement is on the verge of a breakthrough.

Prime Minister John Key leaves New York today while Trade Minister Tim Groser remains in Atlanta at the trade talks. Mr Key said those were due to end early this morning but had been pushed out to Saturday (Sunday NZT).

Helen Clark needs to heed her own UN advisers on TPPA

Jane Kelsey: In standing beside National Prime Minister John Key and appearing to endorse the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) Helen Clark has forgotten the most vulnerable New Zealanders who will bear the brunt of the government’s concessions to US demands, especially on medicines, and the rights of New Zealanders to decide our own future’, says University of Auckland law professor and TPPA critic Jane Kelsey.

‘It also puts her at odds with her own Labour Party’s position that it won’t support a TPPA that undermines New Zealand’s sovereignty, which the Prime Minister has already admitted it will’.

‘Clark’s statement suggests she has become too far removed from the realities and opinions of ordinary New Zealanders’.

‘Helen Clark also needs to remember her responsibilities as the head of the United Nations Development Programme’, Kelsey observed.

Assange Claims Australia Has Handed Over Its Sovereignty to Washington

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has slammed Australia for being under the control of Washington, in relation to the country's surveillance program and links to the NSA. "The capital of Australia is [in fact] Washington DC," Assange said, in a clear reference to surveillance cooperation between the two countries.

Assange went even further by arguing that as far as surveillance tactics are concerned, one might as well consider the US, the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia as one country.

WikiLeaks reveals CBC and Canada Post may be sold under TPPA agreement

A secret letter leaked by WikiLeaks on Wednesday reveals that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Canada Post could be sold under the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, being negotiated by Canada and 11 other countries this week in Maui, Hawaii.

The confidential letter, titled, “State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Issues for Ministerial Guidance” (PDF), reveals the perils Canada’s key Crown Corporations now face under the Harper government’s burgeoning privatization and trade agenda.

The leaked document was prepared for a TPP Ministerial Meeting held in Singapore in December, 2013. According to the whistle-blowing website, the document “indicates a wide-ranging privatisation and globalisation strategy” whose main aim is to undermine state-owned enterprises (SOEs)

New Zealand’s TPP done deal on dairy, and on investor-state disputes

For five years, the public has been denied any meaningful information about the content and progress of the TPP – on the bogus excuse that for the government to do so would jeopardise its ability to conduct the negotiations. Yet in other countries, far more information is publicly available than is the case here. As a result, the public is being made vulnerable to political manipulation – as information is drip fed by the government primarily for its own political ends. We are not North Korea, but a five year blackout amounts to a near- totalitarian abuse of information on matters of crucial public interest.

TPPA Negotiators Meeting This Week to Finalise Corporate Trade Deal

On September 26, a meeting between negotiators from all 12 nations involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will commence in Atlanta, Georgia. The meeting will run through September 30, followed by two days of meetings with trade ministers. The Atlanta meetings come on the heels of a joint meeting in San Francisco that included negotiators from the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Mexico.

The San Francisco meeting reportedly dealt with rules related to the auto industry. The upcoming Atlanta meeting is expected to be one of the final meetings as President Obama attempts to close the deal before the end of the year. Last Wednesday, President Obama spoke to a room of business leaders about the state of the TPP: “We should not assume, though, that because the [trade promotion] authority was done, that we automatically are going to be able to get TPP done,” Obama told the group.

MK ULTRA, LSD and the Military Industrial Music Industry

This program is mind blowing, when you consider the many connections between pop culture and music icons, and the military industrial complex. There is obviously a great deal that hasn’t been explained to the naive and believing public, who identify with these figures, and refuse to ask critical questions that could diminish the popular images with whom they identify. Nevertheless, there are endless connections between these celebrated individuals and ongoing experiments in MK Ultra and mind control – perhaps operating on the mass population level.

Top 4 fallacies of the hijacked environmental movement

Many people in the environmental movement are in it for the right reasons: they see the ongoing poisoning and destruction of the planet by corporations, and are determined to defend and speak out for the Earth.

Yet, in spite of their good intentions, they have unwittingly allowed themselves to be channeled in a direction that is not really going to help the Earth. They are unintentionally supporting the very forces that are responsible for the pillaging of it.

By continuing to push notions that carbon dioxide is a poison, that global warming exists and mankind is responsible for it, that we need a worldwide carbon tax and that we require Agenda 21-style global governance, these people are unknowingly promoting the New World Order program
