I will try and be brief. I am

I will try and be brief.
I am an Australian. Here we have heard nothing of the TPP re- Australia.
We know the US is a captured country via corporates. We are also probably in the same space.
The TPP is so onerous that we would never vote for it and repeal it if it ever got through. Same with other countries.

2 points(among the many) with regard to the TPP and Australia.
1) It wipes out our PBS (prescribe benefits system-Medical). Big Phama has tried for years to smash this. This is a red line to us. Do not mess here.
2) TPP will facilitate our 4 pillars policy on banking to be scrapped.
We have 4 large banks and they cannot in any way reduce this number.
Another red line. Our 4 banks have for years tried to smash the 4 pillars.

So we come to the question why and how?
1)Why would the intelligent corporates and elites embark on such a suicidal mission? Because they believe they have the muscle to make it happen!
Is this the NEW WORLD ORDER?? Then the elites are the corporates and this is there vehicle for one world.
2) HOW? how are they going to pull it off. They need to divert us?
Well first we are told that the current western economic system is a ponzi scheme waiting to implode.
Then we are constantly reminded of WW111 starting in the middle east.
So is the diversion an economic crisis coming with war (however limited or not).

Can we expect a yanki delegation to come down under and read us the riot act.
We will need to be so so scared of the world situation.
Sign the TPP and come under our security blanket (both financial and military).
So the TPP will then involve security, exchange rates ( a devalued US dollar remaining as the reserve currency), central banking system reinforced, trade, new set of laws, on and on.
And you can never leave.
I can see these trans national corporations paying near zero tax.They pay bugger all now.
Corporate Nirvana and Elite heaven.
Goodbuy middle class. Hello serfdom.

You know if I were elite looking into the future with all its doom and doom,
I would come love a plan like the TPP.
There's opportunity in a crisis. If no crisis, then make one.
My thoughts only,
PS:- I may appear cavalier, but I assure you I am deeply pissed off, angry and
at the same time scared. A huge social upheaval is coming.
Thank god we have not got a homeland security. Time to prepare.

Okay show. Not a fan of

Okay show. Not a fan of Margaret Flowers or her husband Kevin Zeese or really anyone who used the last four years to 'criticize' the administration by attacking Hillary Clinton as though she were president while failing to criticize Barack Obama. Now Hillary's gone and look the husband and wife have a new project. Seems they have a lot of projects that allow them to avoid criticizing Barack Obama. There's a Drone War going on, I don't have time for the timid.

Excellent show. Very smart.
