Alan Grayson Darrell Issa Committee national security

Federal Reserve

Grayson House Oversight

We reported last year: Democratic Senator Wyden – the head of the committee which is supposed to oversee it – is so furious about the lack of access that he has introduced legislation to force disclosure. Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is so upset by it that he has leaked a document on his website to show what’s going on. What is everyone so furious about? An international treaty being negotiated in secret which would not only crack down on Internet privacy much more than SOPA or ACTA, but would actually destroy the sovereignty of the U.S. and all other signatories. It is called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Wyden is the chairman of the trade committee in the Senate … the committee which is supposed to have jurisdiction over the TPP. Wyden is also on the Senate Intelligence Committee, and so he and his staff have high security clearances and are normally able to look at classified documents. And yet Wyden and his staff have been denied access to the TPP’s text. Indeed, the decision to keep the text of TPP secret was itself classified as secret: Zero Hedge Reads

(I have also received a tip from a credible inside source that TPP contains provisions which would severely harm America’s national security. Specifically, like some previous, ill-conceived treaties, TPP would allow foreign companies to buy sensitive American assets which could subject us to terror attacks or economic blackmail.) Yesterday, Congressman Alan Grayson (who knows how to read legislation … he was a successful lawyer before he was elected to Congress, and has written and co-sponsored numerous bills himself including the bill to audit the Federal Reserve and – most recently – the “Mind Your Own Business Act” to stop NSA spying) announced that he had been allowed to read the text of TPP – and that it is an antiAmerican power grab by big corporations:

Last month, 10,000 of us submitted comments to the United States Trade Representative (USTR), in which we objected to new so-called free trade agreements. We asked that the government not sell out our democracy to corporate interests. Because of this pressure, the USTR finally let a member of Congress – little ole me, Alan Grayson [anyone who's seen Grayson in action knows that he is formidable] – actually see the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP is a large, secret trade agreement that is being negotiated with many countries in East Asia and South America. The TPP is nicknamed “NAFTA on steroids.” Now that I’ve read it, I can see why. I can’t tell you what’s in the agreement, because the U.S. Trade Representative calls it classified. But I can tell you two things about it. 1) There is no national security purpose in keeping this text secret. 2) This agreement hands the sovereignty of our country over to corporate interests. 3) What they can’t afford to tell the American public is that [the rest of this sentence is classified]. *** I will be fighting this agreement with everything I’ve got. And I know you’ll be there every step of the way. *** Courage, Congressman Alan Grayson Grayson also noted: It is ironic in a way that the government thinks it's alright to have a record of every single call that an American makes, but not alright for an American citizen to know what sovereign powers the government is negotiating away. *** Having seen what I’ve seen, I would characterize this as a gross abrogation of American sovereignty. And I would further characterize it as a punch in the face to the middle class of America. I think that’s fair to say from what I’ve seen so far. But I’m not allowed to tell you why! Remember that one of the best definitions of fascism – the one used by Mussolini – is the “merger of state and corporate power”. Our nation has been moving in that direction for a number of years, where government and giant corporations are becoming more and more intertwined in a malignant, symbiotic relationship. TPP would be the nail in the coffin for free market economics and democracy. Note to progressives who support public banking: This is a key battle. Note to those who oppose to what they call “one world government” or a “new world order”: This is the big fight. Average:

You call "Just For Men" "formidable". Grayson is the pot calling the kettle gray and then trying to cover it with hair dye. At this rate he'll make Senator and get Carl "potty mouth" Levin's seat on the permanent subcommittee on investigations. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and gray is gray... not black and white. One question: Would you trust Grayson as your business partner in spite of his conveniently entertaining and opportunistic patriotic grandstanding? He's going to be on the skeet range retiring snowbirds like President Obama did in that recent double barrel photo pop... PULL!!

Before we slit our wrists and surrender keep one thing in mind...any "treaty" must be ratified by a 2/3 vote of the Senate. While the secrecy of this thing is troubling, when it comes right down to it Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution grants the President the power to negotiate treaties...not the House of Representatives...so these reps really have no Constitutional role here. "He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;"

There isn't a credible freaking bone in this clowns body. He's little more than a side show barker. Hey Al, if you had any balls at all you'd be a fucking man and spill the beans rather than tell us "I'm not allowed to say." Grow the hell up.

Never Give Stores Your Zip Code. Here's Why The whole scene emerged only because Davis did not want to share her ZIP code. Why make such a big deal over five digits that only records that someone lives in the same area as many thousands of others? Because along with other information, the ZIP code may provide the final clue to figuring out your address, phone number and past purchasing details, if a sales clerk sees your name while swiping your credit card.

One thign it will certainly kill over here is Japan's foreign ownership laws, which currently limits foreigners to a less than majority stake. Any seemingly foreign large company in Japan is really a Japanese company paying licencing fees to use a trademark. They're all bleating about protecting their precious fucking rice - the most expensive and most heavily subsidized rice in the world meanwhile their whole way of doing business - their collectivism, mercantilism, their protectionism - will be thrown down the shithole while they stand around talking about which member of AKB48 is the cutest. China is just waiting for the fire sale at the end.

Is this amendment starting to make sense to anyone yet? Perhaps Alan Grayson could suggest stronger wording: 28th Amendment (The Constitutional Emergency Amendment) Corporations are not persons and shall be granted only those rights and privileges that Congress deems necessary for the well-being of the People. Congress shall provide legislation defining the terms and conditions of corporate charters according to their purpose; which shall include, but are not limited to: 1, prohibitions against any corporation; a, owning another corporation, b, becoming economically indispensable or monopolistic, or c, otherwise distorting the general economy; 2, prohibitions against any form of intervention in the affairs of government by means of; a, congressional lobbying b, electoral sponsorship or advocacy c, educational sponsorship or publication d, media news reporting 3, provisions for; a, the auditing of standardized, current, and transparent account books b, closing the FRB and the establishment of state-owned banks c, civil and criminal penalties to be suffered by corporate executives et al for violation of the terms of a corporate charter. Optional: (or possible 29th amendment) The 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution is hereby repealed and Congress shall re-write the U.S. Code to reflect the changes embodied herein. (While we're at it, we could also repeal the 17th amendment)

Sorry about that stream of consciousness. In direct reply to your comment: no, I'm afraid a constitutional convention, without first firewalling corporations from participating, would be co-opted like every other political movement in the last decade. I don't think the (corporate-sponsored) States can or will pursue such a firewall unless mandated by popular petition to do so. For that reason I think the strategy must be to perfect the wording and limit all discussion to the specifics of one (firewall) amendment. We can deal with all the other red herrings and serious policy issues AFTER citizen sovereignty is restored. It would be nice to repeal the 16th and 17th at the same time, but if those issues became argumentative I would pospone them for later consideration. The only issue we should be thinking of now is whether The People run this country; or Wall Street. A full-on convention

Nobody can "plan" anything with a system this huge and dynamic; but "they" are going to try nonetheless. I don't see any effective opposition to global tyranny other than a renewed sense of national unity. If it's to be a civil war, it will be between Corporatists and Constitutionalists. I don't think most Americans even know which side they're on yet. That's what's scarey. How did we come to fear public incorporation but willingly accept private incorporation?

How about "the reality amendment": Fictitious entities are fictions, they do not exist. All organizations are fictitious entities, including: government corporations central-banks The central FACT is this. When a few people, or a few dozen people, or a few hundred people sit down, craft a document, then sign at the bottom, nothing pops into existence. Period. In other words, nothing is created, and nothing exists that didn't exist before. Furthermore, no individual who did not sign the document can possibly be a party to, or obligated by, or controlled by anything stated in that document. This is obviously true, and made completely clear by the fact that any number of groups of morons could sign different documents that completely contradict each other. Nobody alive today bears any relationship to, or any obligation to, the declaration of independence, the constitution. And the only humans who bear any relationship to federal, state, local documents signed recently are... the predators who signed them. Those documents have nothing to do with anyone else. Period. No government exists. That's a fact. What does exist is: predators DBA government predators DBA corporations predators DBA central-banks The predators exist. Those names they call themselves are just names, just fictions, nothing more. Until and unless human beings wake up and start treating predators as predators... humans are finished.

Oh, the number of actionable deeds is nearly unlimited at this point in history. The only difference is, the deeds are left up to you, and up to every other individual. And that's how it needs to get done, or it won't get done. Ask anyone who was part of part of any resistance or guerilla campaign.

People you are dealing with an authoritarian regime. That is where all far left socialists end up taking their country. How are you going to fight them when they are spying on everyone, even the mainstream media that totally supports them. Everything that the left dreamed that conservatives might do, now the liberals have done. The left has gone full blown totalitarian.

That he won't, means he is using the "heat" of his constituency and the rest of the American people on this "issue" as a "negotiation" tool. He probably wants a judgeship or a cushy revolving-door "job." Time will tell, but the odds are good that he'll fold and later end up at some big corp./think-tank as the "emeritus-well-paid."

This is the roadmap laid out by the CFR and they are behind their own timetable to have this implemented.

The CFR dates back to 1921, and in 1996 published its history, available on its website. The membership of the CFR includes past Presidents, Ambassadors, Secretaries of State, Wall Street investors, international bankers, foundation executives, think tank executives, lobbyist lawyers, NATO and Pentagon military leaders, wealthy industrialists, journalists, media owners and executives, university presidents and key professors, select Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, Federal Judges, wealthy entrepreneurs, and as many as ten 9-11 Commission Members. [1] [2] Due perhaps more to its origins, associations, and history, than to its current composition and activities, the CFR does have a reputation as one of the "triumvirate of elite organizations" together with the Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. Elitism doesn't necessarily preclude the ability to provide unbiased and useful service however. [3] Carroll Quigley, Professor of History at Georgetown University, stated, "The Council of Foreign Relations is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established." [4] They hold regular private meetings including members, and very select guests. Occasionally they will hold a public meeting, and invite the open press (including C-SPAN). The image of the CFR as a closed-shop bi-partisan discussion forum for the foreign policy establishment has fuelled criticism that the organisation and its members are controlling world policy and events. In 1938 the Council created numerous Committees on Foreign Relations throughout the county, in 1995 the Committees became a separate organization under the umbrella of the American Committees on Foreign Relations in Washington D.C.
