    Taqiyya the Liar was betraying this country in 2011:

    So-called “patent reform” proposals continue to plague Capitol Hill. But like health care “reform” and education “reform,” these government cures are worse than any purported disease.

    As part of his ongoing bid to “fundamentally transform” America, President Obama signed the Orwellian-titled America Invents Act (AIA) in 2011. If truth-in-advertising laws applied to politicians who front massively complex bills that do the opposite of what they proclaim to do, these hucksters would be jailed for their patently fraudulent “reform” legislation. Co-sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, the law was marketed as a job-creation vehicle that would relieve a backlog of an estimated 700,000 patent applications and crack down on patent “trolls” supposedly abusing the system through frivolous litigation against alleged infringers.

    In truth, the AIA and its legislative successors are special interest boondoggles that enrich corporate lawyers, Big Business and federal bureaucrats at the expense of the independent inventors and fledgling innovators the American patent system was created to protect and encourage.

    The AIA’s primary agenda? “Harmonizing” our patent laws with the rest of the world to reward paper-pushers who are “first to file” at the patent office, instead of those who are “first to invent.”

    How Obama Radically Transformed America s Patent System Human Events

    Last year Aaron Klein tied the AIA to the TPP:

    Amnesty International USA warned draft TPP provisions related to patents for pharmaceuticals “risk stifling the development and production of generic medicines, by strengthening and deepening monopoly protections.”

    Another leak revealed the TPP would grant more incentives to relocate domestic manufacturing offshore, Wallach and Beachy related.

    Yet that nest of traitors in the US Senate, led by Mitch McConnell, are determined to ratify the TPP. God only knows what else is in it.

    The Affordable Care Act is on its way to being dumped. I have a strong feeling it will be impossible to get rid of the TPP after it is ratified. The time to dump the TPP is NOW —— when there is some hope that it might be on the average voter’s radar screen.

    There are differences in treaties START was a arms reduction treaty (nuclear warheads) between the US and Russia (USSR). The cold war saw both sides stocking piling nukes as a stare off. The end of the cold war meant we did not need those stock piles. The TPP is a trade treaty, one that will hurt the US something awful. Trade treaties are generally between many states (countries). Treaties between just two states, such as war treaties before WWII are not really allowed anymore. States join the UN as an overall treaty--an "if you are attacked, we will all come to your defense or at least scold someone on your behalf" thing.
    The TPP will cost US citizens more jobs and more restrictions with the Internet. The only way US manufacturers can compete with states like Japan is to knock full-timers to part-time and cut benefits, as well as jobs. I believe there is a clause in the TPP propaganda (for lack of a better word) that states all those who will lose their jobs because of the TPP will be compensated by the government.

    TPP and TTIP, will be a disaster for all the countries involved.

    But as with all of these kind of trade deals, the impact won't be felt at first, as it takes a few years for all the conditions to be met by the countries involved.

    Firstly, all the countries involved will lose control over their healthcare systems - meaning secret negotiations between corporate lobbyists (from all the countries involved) will determine what healthcare coverage will be available, the cost of drugs, and the cost of healthcare overall. But this won't happen all at once, but through the court process as foreign (and US based) corporations sue governments to force them to comply with the provisions of the TPP and TTIP.

    Secondly, agricultural controls will be drastically curtailed, meaning that foods and products currently registered as unsafe for consumption due to local or Federal level laws over environmental protection and bio-security, will be allowed in, and any government that tries to stop x product coming into the country, will be sued by corporate lobbyists (from all the countries involved) - though again, this will be imposed through the courts.

    Thirdly, the TPP and TTIP will technically have immunity from any constitutions or laws, meaning if a law or constitution conflicts with the TPP or TTIP, then the TPP or TTIP overrules whatever law or constitution may exist in a country. It will be interesting to see how legal challenges go, between countries, states, and corporate lobbyists, and whether the US Supreme Court will find itself gagged by the TPP and TTIP.

    Lastly, consumer laws will be curtailed, though the TPP and TTIP are being negotiated in secret, so we won't know what consumer laws will be invalidated by the passage of the TPP and TTIP. It could mean anything from higher utility prices (and the privatization of state utilities), higher prices for internet, less protection from predatory lenders, to less protection for consumers from retailers - meaning less time to return goods if they are broken.

    Though politicians in both parties will push it through - and screw Americans over like they did with NAFTA - but on a massive scale.

    To Idadunno: Who prevents it?

    To Idadunno: The US Senate joined the United Nations, but never ratified the United Nations —— AN ORGANIZATION —— as a treaty.

    It would be a helluva lot worse were it not for the Connally Reservation. Without the Connally Reservation the UN would have usurped treaty authority a long time ago. In addition to treaties, everything would have been handed to the UN’s ICJ, (International Court of Justice). Of course, the UN’s judicial system cannot enforce its will on the American people, but Taqiyya the Liar & Company could then use the ICJ to overturn our courts in every decision that challenges United Nations authority. Sad to say, four United Nations-loving justices are already seated on the High Court.

    NOTE: Six words inserted in the UN Charter by Texas Democrat, Senator Tom Connally (1877 - 1963), is the only thing standing between Americans and the United Nations:


    "AS DETERMINED BY THE UNITED STATES."​

    Do a little research and you will be shocked to learn the names of Americans who have been trying to repeal the Connally Reservation for decades.

    To Idadunno: Not true. The Korean War was only possible because the Soviet Union failed to attend a Security Council meeting. President Truman took the opportunity to stop Communist expansion by manipulating the UN. Had Soviets attended the one and only Security Council meeting they ever missed, they would have vetoed Truman’s military opposition to North Korea’s aggression.

    For American Communists to organize mass demonstrations against a UN-approved Police Action meant they would have been demonstrating against a United Nations war. Vietnam was a far different matter. The United Nations opposed the Vietnam War because the UN supported Communist expansion when North Vietnam attacked South Vietnam. In time, the media turned the American people against a just war.

    Ultimately, the United Nations will never come to any country’s defense when it is attacked by a Communist regime. Note that Communist China did not become a member of the United Nations until 1973; long after the Vietnam war started. Communist China and the Soviet Union then had two out of five seats on the permanent Security Council. The Soviet Union imploded, but China and Russia are still America’s most formidable enemies sharing Communism’s goals.

    To Idadunno: You must mean compensated by taxpayers —— which guarantees an increase in the parasite class.

    To hipeter924: Absolutely true with one addition. Ratifying the TPP will bring Americans a giant step closer to abandoning their sovereignty to a global government.

    As Scott used to say in their commercials “That’s a thousand sheets.”

    It turns out that TPP provides a thousand shits:

    Sounds like Clinton is no iron lady...............

    news reports as of now say she will support TPA....which is really conceding national authority to international authorities
    and abrogating Congressional responsibility.
