FAIRFIELD-SUISUN, CALIFORNIA
99 CENTS

Fast track to the poor house

kirchubel column sig

By
From page A8 | February 10, 2014 |

No, Fairfield, this column isn’t about California’s bullet train, although that money could be much better spent. Today, let’s discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the so-called free trade agreement that President Obama asked Congress to pass on a fast track and send to him for signing.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another corporate free trade deal like the North American Free Trade Agreement that passed during the lame duck days of George H.W. Bush’s presidency.

Before NAFTA was born, we Americans really didn’t know what to expect. During the 1992 presidential debates, both the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, but the Independent candidate, Ross Perot, eloquently and accurately foresaw (fore-heard?) the “giant sucking sound” of American jobs leaving this country. About 1 million jobs were exported during its first 10 years, well before the Great Recession. As American jobs were shipped to Mexico and Mexican products and produce shipped back here, our trade surplus of more than $5 billion in 1992 became a trade deficit, of more than $54 billion, last year.

These corporate treaties reduce barriers between nations to buy and sell their products, that’s the “free trade” part. But in doing that, it places American workers, ranchers and farmers on the same playing field as those in the poorest parts of the world. A person can live on 50 cents a day in some places, but not here. If you were a corporation and could produce a widget for $10 here, or for $1 there, you would produce it there, right? Now, would you pass that savings on to your customers and sell your widget for $1.50, or would you continue to sell it for $15 and profit the difference?

Corporations win, workers and consumers don’t.

Another problem with these corporate agreements is that they are international treaties written by corporations, for corporations, which supersede other, legitimate laws passed by Congress. Thanks to NAFTA and another corporate entity, the World Trade Organization, we now have corporations suing nations, and winning, because laws and regulations cut into their profits.

But what about the Trans-Pacific Partnership? What does that corporate treaty do? Well, we, and our elected representatives, are not allowed to know. In spite of that, President Obama wants to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress and pass it without discussion or amendment.

But fast tracking hit a major roadblock last week when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, said he will not allow it to go forward. I agree; if the Trans-Pacific Partnership is so great, let’s all look at it and discuss it.

Once bitten, twice shy, thrice, highly irritated.

I have often written in this Daily Republic column of how the wealthy and their corporations purchase “our” congressional representatives, but if their Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty is fast tracked through Congress without debate, the carefully crafted, delicate façade of representational government will truly be shattered.

Thankfully, there is a growing and diverse group of aware Americans who are fed up with multinational corporations selling out America for bigger profits at the top. Besides manufacturing workers, American ranchers and farmers are also hurt by these free trade treaties and these issues are now unifying big-city Democrats on the coasts with rural Republicans in the center of this country.

There’s a spark of hope in this enlightened union crossing America’s great political divide, because these people understand the economic issues of our time far, far outweigh the petty political bickering and distractions that dominate our media.

America only has two real political groups, the 99.9 percent and the 0.1 percent. Fairfield, which one are you?

    221 Percent Increase In One Year? Why Are So Many People Renouncing American Citizenship? Michael Snyder Economic Collapse February 10, 2014...........Compared to exactly six years ago, 1,154,000 fewer Americans have jobs. Meanwhile, our population has gotten significantly larger since then. There simply are not enough jobs for everyone, and we continue to fall even farther behind. In January, the economy only added 113,000 jobs and in December the economy only added 75,000 jobs. Both of those figures are well below what we need just to keep up with population growth. Looking ahead, things look even more troubling. The number of “planned job cuts” in January was 12 percent higher than 12 months earlier, and it was actually 47 percent higher than in December.

  • A Quote....February 10, 2014 - 9:59 am

    After being arrested and sent to the gulag for being a “political dissident” Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn had this to say about how the prisoners regretted not fighting back against the Police State :............................................. “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”......MORAL OF THE STORY FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.....TELL THEM NO TO GUN REGISTRATION AND CONFISCATION.....50 Mayors left Bloomberg's group...realizing the plan is for total Gun Confiscation.

    I don't object to trade agreements like NAFTA if they increase the overall wealth of the nation. But the price for such an agreement is that a large portion of that increased wealth should go to the nation. Mike raises the valid objection that the ones profiting are corporations an a relatively small number of individuals. Why should they, when it was the nation that made it possible (with the sacrifice of a lot of jobs)? So how do we make sure a large portion of the increased wealth goes to the nation? Answer: Through a more progressive tax system. Then we plow the money back into the nation for things that benefit everybody, like health care, infrastructure, education, public spaces and functions, etc., etc. The quality of life for all Americans, not just the few, should be enhances. The rich can still have their yachts.

It has now been revealed that the Pentagon destroyed photos of Osama Bin Laden's remains only hours after government watchdog group Judicial Watch submitted a FOIA request to review them. Similarly, Obama has once again made a lawless rewrite of Obamacare, this time delaying the employer mandate for another year. On today's broadcast, Alex talks to British writer and public speaker David Icke about the nature of reality in a world of lies.

    On the Wednesday, February 12 broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Jones breaks down the stock market's heavy reliance upon the fed's QE bond buying stimulus and easy money printing schemes, as the market reacts eerily similar to how it did right before the stock market crash of 1929 which ushered in the Great Depression. On today's show, Alex speaks with American economist and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, about how Washington funded NGOs are purposely attempting to deliver Ukraine into the clutches of the EU. Jones also discusses the very real prospect of engaging in war with China, Russia or Iran with renowned international trends forecaster and publisher of the Trends Journal, Gerald Celente. We'll also cover why it's better to be a prepper in Atlanta during a snowstorm, the possibility of coordinated attacks on the power grid, and other hot news items.

    In general Google....whitewater money laundering for cocaine.....See....BILL CLINTON'S CRIMINAL BACKGROUND ......A good friend of Clinton from Arkansas, Larry Nichols, was interviewed in a film. Clinton thought that Nichols would keep his mouth shut, but he didn't. He was hired by Clinton and had found out that Clinton's firm, "Arkansas Development Finance Authority" (ADFA), laundered drug-money. Cocaine to a value of $10.000.000 (ten million dollars!) a week was flown in from Mena Airport in Arkansas. The money was laundered via ADFA to a bank in Florida, to a bank in Georgia, to Citycorp in New York, and from there it was transferred out of the country. All this regarding to Larry Nichols. Clinton's best friend, Dan Lasater, led the operations. Lasater and Bill Clinton's brother, Roger Clinton, later spent time in jail due to drug related crimes. The Chief of Police in Arkansas at that time, Doc Delaughter, said he had gathered information from many persons in Lasater's surroundings, how he smuggled drugs and abused young girls sexually. During those investigations Doc was harassed by persons from his own police department, paid by Clinton.

    On this explosive Friday, February 14 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex covers the latest developments in media control, mass brainwashing and the myth of "global warming." After U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said that the nation is too obsessed on racial differences, authoritarians have attacked him by implying that he is racist. Meanwhile, despite the fact that there is snow on the ground in 49 states, including Hawaii, CBS blamed the extreme cold on global warming. On today's show, Jonathan Davis, lead vocalist of Korn, discusses how mainstream media manipulates the minds of millions and the mass erosion of privacy. Marc Morano of Climate Depot also reveals techniques used by the media to build up the "global warming" lie. You don't want to miss this powerful broadcast!wwwinfowarscom

    Government Lays Groundwork To Confiscate Your 401k and IRA: “This Is Happening” Mac Slavo SHTFplan.com February 14, 2014...............As noted by Zero Hedge, they’re no longer turning exclusively to central bankers to simply print more money as needed. Because last year’s bank bail-in forcing the confiscation of funds from average depositors in Cyprus worked so well, EU regulators and bankers have determined that they’ll use a similar method to fund their future endeavors.
