Wikileaks To Reveal more On Obama’s Dirty Free Trade Treaties

For at least two years now, from the moment we became aware of the nature of the Obama Administration’s free trade’ deals (which are really about freeing global corporations from competition and legal constraints rather than free trade in any conventional sense,) Little Nicky and his friends at Boggart Blog, The Daily Stirrer, Boggart Abroad and elsewhere (see links at foot of article) have been trying to raise awareness of the biggest threat to invividual liberty and national sovereignty since …. well ever.

WikiLeaks has fed up by regularly publishing leaked documents relating to the highly secret Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade treaty negotiations, which are taking place behind closed doors and involve EU and American bureaucrats and corporate lawyers but exclude our democratically elected representatives in national parliaments and assemblies.

Many campaigners agains TTIP and TPP feel these treaties, which will give corporate lawyers the ability to rewrite national law in the interests of increasing profitability, are the culmination of a long term policy to establish and unelected global government, a meritocracy of bureaucrats and academics.

Two game-changing trade agreements are now perilously close to completion.

Their basic aims are three-fold: to elevate the rights of “investors,” that is of corporations, above the rights of citizens; to transfer sovereignty from the seats of national government to the corporate HQs of the world’s largest multinationals; and to cement Western domination of the global economy for the foreseeable future.

Naturally, few voters are likely to support such a radical program. Hence the acute need for secrecy, obfuscation and lies throughout the negotiation process. Eventually, even they are not enough. The lies start showing through and the flimsy facade begins to slip. In the later stages — roughly where we are now — the only way to finish the job is to incrementally, almost imperceptibly snuff out the institution of representative democracy itself. To do that, one must still keep the illusion of democracy alive, at least until the ink on its death warrant (i.e. a fully signed trade agreement) is dry.

This explains the European Commission’s constant empty promises of increased transparency, accountability and public consultation. The latest installment in this ridiculous charade came not from Brussels but from the US government, which announced that it will open up reading rooms in its embassies across the EU, so that national politicians can read secret documents related to TTIP.

Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks is still banged up in the Ecudorian embassy in London but is still very involved in efforts to raise opposition to the corporate power grab that is going on all over the world with the complicity of elected governments. In an interview with Australian News Agency Fairfax Media, Mr Assange said that while he does not expect to leave the embassy compound any time soon, WikiLeaks very much remains in the business of publishing the secrets of diplomats and spies.

“There’ll be more publications – about large international so-called free trade deals, and about an intelligence agency,” Mr Assange said.

In a wide ranging interview Mr Assange discussed the recent establishment of a secure internet chat system to enable anonymous sources to contact WikiLeaks and the prospective reintroduction of a secure electronic drop box to facilitate the deposit of leaked documents.

Mr Assange said that a key challenge arose from the fact that any website open to receive anonymous leaks was an “exposed front door that becomes a permanent target” for intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

One part of the solution is to embed the instructions and code for the submission system on every webpage so that potential sources would be concealed amidst the estimated 500,000 unique readers who visit the WikiLeaks website each month.

“That gives a source some cover,” Mr Assange said, “but it’s important to understand that the protection of sources requires much more than a single technological fix.”

2015 The Story Of China, Russia, Iran and The Petrodollar Death

Not long ago as mainstream media prematurely celebrated Obama’s vicory over Putin in the Currency Wars we took a look at some economic fundamentals. Russia’s government debt totals only 13.4% of its GDP. Its budget deficit in relation to GDP is only 0.5%. If we assume a US GDP of $16.8 trillion (the figure for 2013, its $18.4 trillion today), the US budget deficit totals 4% of GDP, versus 0.5% for Russia. The Fed is essentially a private corporation owned by regional US private banks and foreign investors and institutions (including the Dutch and British monarchies would you believe?), although it passes itself off as a state institution. US publicly held debt (The Fed’s holding of US Government treaury bonds) is equal to a whopping 74% of GDP in fiscal year 2014. Russia’s is only 13.4%.

The declaration of economic war by the US and EU on Russia, via the run on the rouble and the oil futures attack, was essentially a derivatives racket. Derivatives in theory may be multiplied to infinity. Derivative operators attacked both the ruble and oil prices in order to destroy the Russian economy. The problem there is that the Russian economy is more soundly financed than America’s.

Read our economic war predictions for 2014. We will not be 100% correct and we would not even dream on trying to match our critics 110% record – of being utterly wrong in their case, but we will be around 80%ish. If our governments could get even half that, the country might have a future.

Trade Is Not Meant to Boost Economies

In view of all the adverse publicity the corporate friendly, anti democracy, anti free speech trade partnerships deals that are being negotiated in secret at the moment we need to take a step back and see where we are being led.

The Trans Atlantic Free Trade Association (an extension of NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Association a treaty which has existed about 20 years to allow free movement of goods between Mexico, the USA and Canada and which the Obama administration is trying to bully the other partners into extending into an EU federal superstate style treaty), the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the real nasty involving the US a nd EU and it’s Canadian equivalent CETA) which will give corporate business the power to overrule laws made by national governments, and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) a Pacific Rim equivalent of the TTIP are all being negotiated in utmost secrecy.

Why the secrecy you might well ask. Follow my links above to find out more about the nasties for us ordinary punters that are lurking in the small print of these treaties.

For the past few decades governments and mainstream media have been obsessed with ‘trade’, freeing trade, boosting trade, encouraging trade, creating new opportunities for trade, all that bollocks they spout about. But when you get down to it, free trade existed from the dawn of civilisation and only creased to exist when politicians and bankers decided to start telling us it is ‘a good thing.’

Here’s an article on that theme from another libertarian thinker.

Trade Is Not Meant to Boost Economies

By John Kozy – Global Research

“There was free trade in Africa . . . before the colonialists came.”—George Ayittey

Most everyone believes that trade is an unqualified good, but no one can identify any solid, concrete benefits it has produced in spite of the fact that it has been going on for at least five millennia. Throughout most of those years, it was all free trade, so trade agreements are not a necessary condition for trade. These agreements must have some other purpose.

When anyone asks, what’s wrong with expanding trade?, the answer is, the people doing the trading. In fact, trade has always been a nefarious activity that people are given a laundered version of, a version washed clean of its malevolent nature. But its evil nature is not difficult to identify..

The view of trade most people are familiar with is the Marco Polo version. Marco Polo loaded some European made goods on boats and then camels, I suppose, and trekked across Asia Minor to China where he swapped those goods for goods like fine silk and rare spices and hauled them back to Europe where they were sold for a huge profit. Other traders did similar things. But that is the sanitized tale. In truth, trading was dangerous and vicious. Traders often were subjected to extortion by the peoples whose lands had to be traversed. Other times these traders were merely robbed. And I suspect they did their share of cheating themselves whenever they had opportunities to. Honesty was not a word in a trader’s vocabulary! It still isn’t.

Latest TTIP News – Could There Be More To This Than Meets They Eye?

Little nicky has warned you before about a couple of trade treaties currently being negotiated in secret. The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) and TTIP (Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) are, according to press releases, aimed at creating economic free trade zones between the EU and NAFTA (North Atlantic Free Trade Association which the Obama Administration is trying to extend to weld USA, Canada and Mexico into a single state in the way the EU want to merge all member states into a single federal superstate) and between the NAFTA superstate and the Pacific Rim nations.

Really what TPP and TTIP will do is abolish democracy and free global corporations to do WTF they like as they will be empowered to ignore any national law that obstructs their business interests.

The latest news-report from the TTIP negotiations from Inter Press Service puts it into perspective. It concerns the secret Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil:

Trade negotiators are working to permanently block a landmark [E.U.] regulatory proposal aimed at addressing climate change.” Cary L. Biron writes there that, “Newly publicised internal documents suggest that U.S. negotiators are working to permanently block a landmark regulatory proposal in the European Union aimed at addressing climate change, and instead to force European countries to import particularly dirty forms of oil. … At issue is the mechanism by which the European Union would determine the greenhouse gas emissions of various types of oil and gas. As part of Europe’s broader climate pledges, the F[uel] Q[uality] D[irective] was revised to reduce the emissions of transport fuels by six percent by the end of the decade. In 2011, the E.U. proposed that tar sands and other unconventional [i.e., especially filthy] oils be formally characterised as having higher greenhouse gas ‘intensity’ than conventional oil, given that they require more energy to produce – 23 percent higher, according to a study for the European Commission.”

US-EU Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) Will Have Devastating Social and Environmental Consequences

Can a free trade treaty really be called that when the ‘free’ is refers to is freeing nasty corporations like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, BP, Exxon, the Drugs and medicine cartel or the big bankers from having to comply with laws enacted by elected governments that the corporate interests don’t like. Of course not.

We have already seen similar terms and conditions included in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) a so called free trade treaty among the pacific rim nations (in these treaties, free trade means anything but free, you understand, TPP and it’s trans atlantic counterpart the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (ttip) and now the new kid on the block, the US-EU Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) will have devastating consequences for we the punters and for the economies of the sovereign nations we live in

But for the banks, big corporations and the bureaucracies who work hand in glove with them, it’s all gravy.

We have warned you before about negotiations currently going on (mainly in secret, us ordinary punters are not allowed to know how the Banking Cartel led by the Rothschild dynasty plan to take control of our lives) to bring the free world closer to rule by a totalitarian global government led by unelected bureucrats and technocrats. We have reported on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) wihch US Emperor Barack Hussein Obama is trying to bulldoze into law without it’s ever being voted on by the US Congress and on the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment which would create a similar apparent free trade area spanning europe and Noth America.

What you have read in mainstream print media or heard in boroadcast news is unfortunately a complete load of bollocks. Anybody who has taken the trouble to read the parts of these agreements that are so far publicly available has been shocked to see that far from free trade, trade between nations party to the agreements would be controlled by global banks and corporations. Corporate and business interests would also gain the power to override or veto the laws made by elected assemblies of sovereign nations.

The Cuddly Side of Big Business

Richard Lambert, the new head of the chief of the CBI, made his first major speech today. He tyold his audience, “Business gets a raw deal from the public, the media and politicians, with even David Cameron, the Tory party leader, distancing himself from big business.”
The speech acknowledged that business has not done itself any favours through scandals such as Enron. He said lack of trust made it harder for the business community to make the argument for the free movement of people, capital and services – globalisation in effect – at a time when protectionist forces in the US and Europe are gathering strength.

Mr Lambert summed up by saying. “Too often, business is presented as a zero sum game. The impression is given that if an individual, or a company, is making lots of money, it must be at someone else’s expense.”
That ambivalence emerges most clearly when companies such as BP and HSBC report record profits. It does mean tax receipts for the government to spend on the NHS and other social services and healthy pension schemes as these funds invest in big companies, but at the same time many people wonder whether HSBC is making such huge profits through high banking charges. On the issue of “fat cat” pay he saidGlobalisation has helped to push up the pay of senior executives, while those lower down the food chain find themselves competing against workers in developing countries.
Most people expect top executives to be well-rewarded because of the heavy responsibilities they bear. But what sticks in people’s craws are the legal tax dodges of the ultra-rich. In July the Guardian traced more than 650 directors of British companies who give their current address as Monaco. This hardly encourages trust in business.

LITTLE NICKY SAYS It will be interesting to learn how these people plan to persuade us that wrecking the environment, destroying communities that have sustained our quality of life, spreading third world poverty to the second and first world and creating a fragmented and warring world all in the pursuit of short term profit is actually going to do any good to anyone unless they can afford a place on the orbiting synthetic planet Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are obviously planning to build?

When big business starts paying its fair whack of taxes I might start listening to their arguments. BUT I WILL NOT BE HOLDING MY BREATH.
