EU Parliament backs TTIP resolution

http://rt.com/news/272563-eu-parliament-ttip-trade/

The resolution was approved by the majority of the parliament with 436 ‘Yes’ votes coming up against 241 ‘No’ votes in Strasbourg on Wednesday in hopes of influencing the TTIP negotiations between European Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmstrom and the USA. Washington insists that for negotiations to be successful a dispute body must be incorporated into the final agreement.

The resolution, introduced by European Parliament President Martin Schulz, seeks to replace the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism a new “more transparent” system of dispute resolution instead of using private arbitration panels to challenge government in a trade disagreements.

The vote signals “that the old system of investor-state dispute settlement should not and cannot be reproduced in TTIP,” Malmstrom said in a statement.

This system should be “subject to democratic principles and scrutiny”, in which disputes are processed “in a transparent manner”, by “publicly appointed, independent professional judges” and “in public hearings”. It should include “an appellate mechanism,” respect the jurisdiction of EU and member state courts and ensure that private interests “cannot undermine public policy objectives”, says the text.

Obama: ‘ TPP No Ordinary Trade Deal its Meant to Undermine China’s Position ‘

Why would anyone believe a pathological liar like Obama?
This is the same conman-in-chief that passed TPA under the smokescreen of the Charleston church shooting then faked sincerity with his amazing grace singing at the memorial.

Concerns about China?
Who moved production to China? Oh yes US corporations?
Who are the PRIMARY beneficiaries of TPP, TTIP, TISA? Again Corporations.
Has it NOT been the west that has been transferring and building up China capabilities.
Has the “market” not been predicting and moving to profit from the financial rise of China?
Ask Rockefeller, Rothschild, Soros, are they invested in China? Damn right!We don’t buy the bullshit about China being a threat economically or militarily.

TPP, TTIP are about a small cabal of anglo-saxon/khazarian hegemony over humanity using state and corporate legal fictions.

RINF: TTIP in the EU: Rejecting Democracy at Every Turn

http://rinf.com/alt-news/politics/ttip-eu-rejecting-democracy-every-turn/

With less than 24 hours to the vote, Parliament President Shultz and Lange used technicalities to pull the vote entirely. The real reason was that they could not control which way MEPs might vote, in particular there was increasing support for removing ISDS entirely

TTIP is being negotiated in secret. Our elected representatives in the House of Commons are not allowed to see the draft negotiating texts. Our elected representatives in the European parliament had to hold a demonstration in the European Parliament before being granted permission to see these texts in January this year. Even now they can only see the texts in a locked room if they have removed any possible recording devices, including their mobile phones, and signed a 14-page agreement to keep the contents secret.

Note: Africa, Asia and Latin America, observe the hypocrisy in the trade agreement voting. Secrecy and subversion. The conduct of the US and EU in pushing these trade agreements is clear evidence in its own right of the malevolence of the benefactors of the agreements.

TPP & TTIP Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) as Kangaroo Courts

The US, Europe and certain Pacific nations are engaged in secret trade deals.
We have trade rules not made in “public” or enforced in the “public”.
Instead we have what amounts to Kangoroo courts. I liked the definition found at duhaime.org

Kangaroo Court Definition:
A judicial proceeding or trial which has a predetermined outcome or where the basic legal rights of a party are jumped over.

“To describe the inquiry as a kangaroo court was to pour scorn upon the inquiry….

“(A) kangaroo court … an un-authorised or irregular court conducted with disregard for or perversion of legal procedure.

“To describe either a court or an inquiry pursuant to a commission as a kangaroo court is to be contemptuous of it.”

TPP, TTIP and TISA fail the Rule of Law?

I will state from the outset, I am a layman however the principles of good conduct, behaviour and obligations are comprensible to me and as a consequence so are basic principles of law.
So what is so onerous about the secret trade deals?
The west has  narrative that its societies are ruled by law.
The rule of law:

“The core of the … principle is … that all persons and authorities within the state, whether public or private, should be bound by and entitled to the benefits of laws publicly made … and publicly administered in the courts.”

–  Justice Tom Bingham wrote, in a 2010 book entitled Rule of Law
Publicly made and publicly administered.
Do the TPP, TTIP and TISA treaties pass the publicly made rule?
So with each failure to comply with the “rule of law” are we obligated to listen, consent, cooperate, under-stand or subject ourselves to the violators?
We now have another fraud being foisted on us with TPP, TTIP, and TISA.
Lets not forget the root fraud of financial frauds, Private Central Banking with their limitless counterfeiting.

UK: The Government has a duty to engage us all in this trade deal

http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/ben-goldsmith-the-government-has-a-duty-to-engage-us-all-in-this-trade-deal-10354817.html?origin=internalSearch

The implications of TTIP are so wide-ranging — on jobs, health, public services, the environment and national sovereignty — that it is mobilising people across the political spectrum. And opposition is as much commercial as it is political. The German “mittelstand” — more than a quarter of a million small and medium-sized enterprises — has vocally opposed it, while an Austrian “SMEs Against TTIP” platform has been joined by hundreds of companies in just one week

But it is the direct threat to consumers which is driving the greatest popular opposition. The numbers speak for themselves. For example, the ratio between the number of chemicals banned in US cosmetics and EU cosmetics is 1:100. That’s right: whereas more than 1,200 chemicals are banned for use in the EU, in the US the figure is just 12

It is profoundly hypocritical of our current government to highlight threats to UK sovereignty while also promoting TTIP within Europe. Rather than trying to hide the deal from the British public, ministers should facilitate a fuller debate — and, if such a debate demands it, include the suspension of TTIP in the package of reforms and opt-outs being demanded from the EU.

Note: Two legal fictions – government and corporation – conspire to use hidden statutes to poison, enslave and monetize our lives.
It is simple lackeys – Obama, Cameroun, etc – if it is hidden from the “governed” it is not CONSENTED to and hence is NULL and VOID. Only your monopoly on violence hidden behind the mask of “law”, forces acquiescence but NOT CONSENT.

Note: Imagine Big Pharma suing because it cannot get enough “safe and effective” vaccines sold or Monsanto demanding “lost” profits due to consumer rejection of GMO products.
Also bear in mind the sociopathy of corporations, its their inherent and intended nature!
Do you really want a sociopathic entity dictating how you live on this earth?
