President Ohama has already written his signature on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), according to the Oregonian newspaper. The TPP is the biggest income and political power redistribution scam in world history. Income, wealth and political power will flow from the 99 to the 1 percent if the TPP becomes law.
This scam has been negotiated between twelve nations, but it hasn’t been introduced into congress yet. It won’t be until after the November elections because political leaders don’t want to arouse the wrath of the American public until it’s too late. So the TPP hasn’t been debated in congress, not even in committee. So why would the president sign something into law that hasn’t even been introduced to congress?
The answer is all about the future; his and ours. The TPP is an important gift the Democratic Party Establishment is giving to major corporate campaign donors, and especially Wall Street banks. The TPP will redistribute trillions of dollars of income from the 99 to the 1 percent, pushing stock prices and CEO compensation to levels never seen before.

But it’s going to totally wreck the US economy for the rest of us.
As our jobs are shipped overseas, the difference between the higher US wages and the new lower Chinese and Vietnamese wages will be redistributed to the rich via higher corporate earnings, rising share prices, and surging dividends. But it will leave the US an economic wasteland with higher unemployment, and declining real wages and salaries. The TPP will also be redistributing to the rich our tax dollars (through the loss of jobs) that go toward supporting our teachers, infrastructure, social security, social safety nets, and other public necessities.
The TPP will also unconstitutionally take away our voting rights on the local and state levels. This is because the TPP sets up secret tribunals. If we want to, for example, successfully vote on a law demanding GMO labeling in a state, a GMO corporation can sue that state through the TPP secret tribunal. If the tribunal, made up of corporate lawyers for the most part, vote for the corporation, then that law goes out the door.
By signing this scam before it’s even been introduced into committee, the president and the Wall Street Democratic Party Establishment is sending a message to rich campaign donors that the Democratic Party has their interests covered, and all at the expense of 99.9 percent of US citizens.
Of course, after President Obama leaves office there are plenty of $250,000 speeches to be made to these same contributors.
