NEWS FLASH: New TPP Leak Confirms U.S. Worker & Taxpayer Fears

NEWS FLASH: New TPP Leak Confirms U.S. Worker & Taxpayer Fears

The Trans-Pacific Partnership’s (TPP) Investment Chapter…reveals how the pact would make it easier for U.S. firms to offshore American jobs to low-wage countries while newly empowering thousands of foreign firms to seek cash compensation from U.S. taxpayers by challenging U.S. government actions, laws and court rulings before unaccountable foreign tribunals. After five years of secretive TPP negotiations, the text – leaked by WikiLeaks –proves that growing concerns about the controversial “investor-state dispute settlement” (ISDS) system that the TPP would extend are well justified, Public Citizen said.

World At A Crossroads: Stop The Fast Track To A Future Of Global Corporate Rule

World At A Crossroads: Stop The Fast Track To A Future Of Global Corporate Rule

As globalization begins its third decade, the question before us is, do we want corporate rule or people’s rule? Is the wealth of a few more important than human rights? What can be done to empower people? Should the nation-state become a thing of the past and corporate sovereignty reign, or is there another path? This is a debate that cannot be fast tracked; it must be brought into the open before trade agreements cement corporate rule for decades to come. We urge people to put their effort into stopping fast track legislation in Congress. This will not be easy because it is high on the president’s agenda, many pro-business legislators and entities like the Chamber of Congress. It can only be stopped if people work together persistently to oppose it.

Why Does Google Want to Censor Non-mainstream Views & Keep You From the Truth?

Why Does Google Want to Censor Non-mainstream Views & Keep You From the Truth?

“The [truth-finding] software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings.” […] The new Google program is going to double down. It’s going to set up its own Ministry of Truth. It’s going to standardize algorithms that unerringly bring about officially favored lies.

Questioning the Charter School Hype [Project Censored #21]

Charter schools have been heralded as the antidote to “failed” public schools, especially in poor urban communities of African-American and Latino/a students. However, as Salon, AlterNet, and other independent media outlets have reported, charter schools have come under fire for not fulfilling the roles or achieving the results that their proponents have claimed. Instead of providing positive teaching and preparing children for the future, recent news reports have indicated that charter schools are subjecting students to padded cells, public shaming and embarrassment, poor instruction, and the negative consequences of financial corruption.

Trans-Pacific Partnership Explained & Why Fast Track Must Be Stopped (2Min Video)

Robert Reich gives one of the best descriptions of the nature & dangers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a less than 3 minute video. The effort to have this secretive, nontransparent proposal put on a “fast track”, smacks of Tammany Hall-style politics that benefits no one but fat cats. And, after years of the public hoping for bipartisanship in Congress, isn’t it ironic that this is the issue where Republicans are supporting the president in large & growing numbers?

Senators Demand to know if President Obama’s Sweetheart Deal with Big Business Will Drive the Country into Another Ditch of Financial Crisis

Senators Demand to know if President Obama’s Sweetheart Deal with Big Business Will Drive the Country into Another Ditch of Financial Crisis

The senators highlight three parts of the TPP that could undermine current and future efforts to regulate Wall Street and prevent another financial crisis: (1) Investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS), which allows foreign companies or investors to sue governments for losses in expected profits; (2) “Market access” provisions that could prohibit restrictions on predatory financial products, like risky forms of derivatives; and (3) Limitations on governments’ ability to impose capital controls, which could stymie efforts to prevent future financial crises as well as efforts to pass a financial transaction tax.
