Worldwide protests took place yesterday November 14, 2014 all over the world in an effort to stop President Obama’s great scheme to redistribute massive amounts of democracy and income from the 99 to the 1 percent via the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the largest income redistribution treaty of all time. The grannies in the video above are singing against the TPP.

In Portland, Oregon citizen’s met in front of Wall Street Congressman Earl Blumenauer’s office. Led by Elizabeth Swager of Oregon Fair Trade, the citizen’s went inside to voice their concerns to the congressman’s staff. Then they strolled to Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden’s office to voice their concerns.

In typical fashion, both the senator and the congressman vote liberally on most social issues. Then, when nobody is looking, and certainly not the corporate press, these two Wall Street favorites consistently vote to redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent. Wyden has a 100 percent voting record to this purpose.

The TPP is called a free trade treaty, but it has almost nothing to do with trade. It’s mainly about curbing Internet freedom, raising the prices of pharmaceutical drugs, curbing Wall Street regulations, eliminating local and state laws protecting the health of citizens and the environment, exporting millions of American jobs overseas and redistributing the difference between the old higher and new lower wages into the already fat pockets of the 1 percent. The TPP is about exporting millions of Latin American jobs to Asia and the difference between the old wages and the new will go to the 1 percent. It’s about driving millions of Latin Americans illegally into the US and pushing wage rates down here, and the difference between the old wages and the new lower wages will go to the 1 percent via higher corporate profits, rising dividends and soaring share prices.

And this is just a tiny bit of what we know about the most secretly negotiated treaty in US history. That’s from leaked documents.

The treaty will redistribute democracy and the income of millions of American citizens to the 1 percent via a variety of legal mechanisms within the treaty. In other words, Obama, Wyden, Blumenauer and Wall Street Republican Senator Mitch McConnell are rigging the legal, governmental, and financial game against the 99 percent even more than they already have. This so-called treaty is a death blow to the middle class in America.

So where are the conservative raging grandmothers?
