BREAKING: TPP text leaked: … it is absolutely terrifying…

Just In From Our Friends At Fight For The Future:

Last week, WikiLeaks released the final text of the TPP’s intellectual property rights chapter and it is absolutely terrifying.

These are just a few of its most dangerous pieces:

  • Compel ISPs to take down websites without any sort of court order, just like SOPA. (Appendix Section I)

  • Extend the US’s copyright regime to require copyrights stand for life plus 70 years, preventing anyone from using works that belong in the public domain. (Article QQ.G.6)

  • Criminalize whistleblowing by extending trade secrets laws without any mandatory exemptions for whistleblowers or investigative journalists. (QQ.H.8)

  • End anonymity online by forcing every domain name to be associated with a real name and address. (Article QQ.C.12)

  • Make it illegal to unlock, modify, or generally tinker with a device you own. (Article QQ.G.10)

  • Export the US’s broken copyright policies to the rest of the world without expanding any of the free speech protections, like fair use. (Article QQ.G.17)

The worst part is that this is just one of the TPP’s 30 chapters.

The final text confirms our worst fears — click here to take action demanding Congress vote NO on the TPP.

For years, governments have held critics of the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in a perfect catch 22. Officials brushed off public outcry and concern by claiming that the dissenters didn’t have all the facts.

This was by design—the 12 country trade deal was negotiated entirely behind closed doors by industry lobbyists and government appointees, and even now the text of the agreement is still classified.

But late last week, WikiLeaks released the final text of the Intellectual Property chapter, meaning those excuses won’t work anymore.

We’re planning to go all out against the TPP, but the first step is to make sure Congress knows just how many people oppose the TPP.

Click here to take action demanding Congress vote NO on the TPP.

Taking action today is just the beginning, because if all we do is send emails and make phone calls, Congress is not going to reject the TPP. Too many giant industries are seriously invested in making sure Congress ratifies the TPP.

If we’re going to win, we need to go big. Which is exactly what we’re going to do.

So take action right now. Contact your Congresspeople now and tell them to vote against the TPP. Then get ready to do more because we’re going to unleash some of our strongest campaigns ever.

Already we have plans to work with hundreds of different groups as a massive coalition to fight the TPP, coordinate gigantic on-the-ground protests in key cities across the country, and produce compelling content to spread the word to as many different audiences as possible just what is at stake in the TPP.

To do all that, we need your help — if you can, pledge to chip in $5 every month between now and when the TPP fight ends so that we can run our biggest, boldest, and best campaign yet.

Thanks for all you do,
Charlie

We The People— Fell Asleep—

Truth is akin to Cool as both are Repulsive to the Un. But, when Ignorance is—Ignored; Stupidity is— Justified!

WAKE UP AMERICA!

It is Time to Change the Dirty Diaper!

Believe It or Not, America is Not a Democracy, Nor a Republic Anymore; as We Have Degenerated— Into a Corporatocracy. In Fact, Current Events are Dictated and Manipulated Daily —World-wide; by a Multi-International Conglomerate of Interconnected Corporations. Unfortunately, it has Been Going on for Far Too Many Years? Why? GREED— International Policy,   “Organized Irresponsibility”, a ‘New World Order’

To Learn all about The New World Order Click Here!

Alas, Corporate Welfare, Privatization, Deregulation, Accumulation and of Course—Monopolies. Thus, they Continue to Destroy Our Environment as They “Leech Off Society”. They Willfully  Rob, Rape, Pollute and Destroy Much of Mother Earth’s Natural Resources. And, they Bully and Murder— ‘We the People of Earth’; Including Our Drinking Water, Plants and Animals, All—  in the Name of Greed, Power and Austerity, as They Plot with Sinister Rational and Employ FEAR by Design. They Freak Us Out by the Threat of Terrorism. But Who or What— Controls the Terrorists? 
Originally, America Was Set Up To Be A Republic… 

It is Time to Impeach President Obama!

It is Time to Reflect. How and Why Did This Happen? It Happened Because ‘We The People’; Let It Happen. Truth Be Told, Our U.S. Government is in Moral Decay, as The Banksters are Destroying Our Livelihood. And, If We Don’t Wake Up Soon and Address This Fact; ‘We The People’, Shall Face An Ultimate National Disaster…
“Does Anybody Really Know What Time it is? Does Anybody Really Care”? — CHICAGO
‘Third Eye Blind’? WAKE Up! It is Time for Some Contagious Moral Courage. Strategically, It is Time to Proceed and Hold the ‘Powers that Be’; Accountable for Their Actions.  
In the Name of Truth, Honesty, Dignity and Integrity; We Must— Be Aware of the Subtleties of Power. Thomas Jefferson Warned: “An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic.” Alas, The Public Must Be INFORMED! The old adage of the “golden” Rule, still applies: “He who has the gold, makes the rules”.  There is a Very Fine Line Between National Security and Corporate Security.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” — Nelson Mandela
Sometimes, You Have to Dig Deep; in Order to Expose Truth. BE AWARE: Truth is akin to Cool as Both are Repulsive to the Un. But, when Ignorance is Ignored; Stupidity is Justified! Alas, ‘Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.’
“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.”—-Michael Ellner
The Powers that Be have Strategically Manipulated the System and Our Institutions Long Enough. It is Time to Get Our Government Back on Track as Well as our Educational System and Our Main Stream-Media. They Lack a Moral Compass? What Ever Happened to Journalistic Integrity
Unfortunately, the Vast Majority of Major-Main-Stream-Media is GUILTY of Censorship by Ownership. They Suppress the Truth in the Name of Ulterior Motives. Their Style of News is But, a Mockery of Freedom. Those that Participate in Their Farce, Should Be Ashamed of Themselves! They are the Laughing Stock of the World. They are Betraying ‘We the People’ and, They are Betraying HUMANITY. ‘Evil is What Evil Does’…  

 

“For a society to be responsible and powerful, it must be informed. Our free press, protected by the first constitutional amendment, plays a critical role in ensuring that every American has constant access to important and trustworthy news.” 
“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.” – Thomas Jefferson
According to Wikipedia, as of July 31, 2015:

‘Ranking of United States press freedom’-

Freedom House, an independent watchdog organization, ranked the United States 30th out of 197 countries in terms of press freedom. The report lauded the constitutional protections afforded American journalists, but criticized authorities for placing undue limits on investigative reporting in the name of national security. Freedom House awards countries a score out of 100, with 0 representing most free and 100 representing least free. The score is broken down into three, separately weighted, categories: legal (out of 30), political (out of 40), and economic (out of 30) environments. The United States scored a 6, 10, and 5 respectively. This gave it a cumulative score of 21.

“As of February 12, 2014, the United States is ranked 46th in the Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index. This is a measure of freedom available to the press, encompassing areas such as government censorship, and not indicative of the quality of journalism. There was a fall from 20th in 2010 to 42nd in 2012, which was attributed to arrests of journalists covering the Occupy movement.”

“For 2012, Finland and Norway tied for 1st worldwide. Canada ranked 10th, Germany tied 17th with Jamaica, and Japan tied 22nd with Suriname. The UK ranked 28th, Australia 30th, and France 38th.”

“Extraterritorial regions of the US ranked 57th.”

God Bless and Kudos to Lionel, in regards to his remark about Journalism and the Main-Stream-Media:
“They encourage intellectual torpor and ennui. Asking too many questions especially when you question the official story will get you labeled a conspiracy nut. Asking too few questions will win you high journalistic praise as caution and control are rewarded and heralded.”
Alas, Suppression is Evil. Don’t be Fooled by Censorship by Ownership. How can Anybody Learn Truth when We are Fed Lies and Half-Truths— Propaganda; that Distort Reality? Remember, Knowledge is Power; the Lack of Knowledge is Impotence. Follow the $$$! Who Benefited? Thought is Potent! You are what you Think. THINK about That!

Tune INTUIT

WAKE UP! Denial is the Anti-Christ. Shh and Hush-Hush are its best friends. They are Repugnant? Silence is Not Golden; when Truth is Denied. As a Matter of Fact, it Maintains Perpetual Agony. Speak Out! Deliver us from evil. The TRUTH will set us FREE! Destiny Awaits OUR Command! Inquire! BELIEVE that We Can Make a Difference and Together, We Will Manifest Humanity!
“Substance responds to our faith in it.” —Richard Jafolla
“America’s Only Political Party— ‘The Business Party’”—Noam Chomsky  
Far Too Many that are in Charge, have an Immoral Code of Honor. They have NO Conscience, No Shame! No Empathy or Any Sympathy? No Regard for Dignity? No Credibility! It is but, a Sociopathic Agenda. Congress is but a Dysfunctional Menace to Society…
How can we possibly Trust or Respect them? This current situation, Status Quo; is Totally Unacceptable! Speak Out, Testify! Spread the Word. God Bless the Alternative Medias.
We Must Address Our so called Leaders; the Politicians and Hold them Accountable for Their Actions. Justification!  We Must Address Our so called National Debt and FIX what is Causing IT! We must Address All of Our National Disgraces, Immaculate Deceptions; once and for ALL and Come Clean as WE DEMAND ANSWERS! 
Frankly, I am Mystified by the Stupidity of the Status Quo—State of Affairs? It’s Absurd and Appalling to say the least? Especially since, almost Everybody Knows that it is INFECTING— Their Daily Lives? But No-Body Does Anything to Try and FIX It; let alone— Address It?
WHY?
“There is a need for social movements that invoke stories as a form of public memory, stories that have the potential to unsettle common sense, challenge the commonplace, and move communities to invest in their own sense of civic and collective agency…” —-Dr. Henry A.

WAKE UP AMERICA!
