Neocon Republicans drove the US into massive debt through fighting other people's wars (and are still at it). They want to cover war debts by cutting funding to those in need.

Hundreds of residents of Kalachi, a small town near a former Soviet Union uranium mine in Kazakhstan, have been suffering from a mysterious sleeping sickness that causes them to fall asleep for two to six days and wake up with significant memory loss.

Investigations have ruled out toxins, bacteria or viruses or parasitic diseases (such as African trypanosomiasis)

Trans-Pacific Partnership leaked chapter raises health, environment concerns

ISDS provisions would allow companies from countries covered by the trade agreement to sue the federal, state and local governments for introducing policies that are detrimental to their business interests.

That chapter shows that the Australian Government has asked for a specific exemption for Medicare, the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, the Therapeutic Goods Administration and the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator from investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) provisions.

Dr Patricia Ranald from fair trade group AFTINET told ABC News Online that Australia's attempt to include specific exemptions shows that it regardless of its reassurances to the public - it does not trust the pact to protect these activities.

"Our Government has previously given assurances that general protections or exemptions for health, environment and public welfare would prevent such suits in the future," she said.

"But the fact that they have named specific institutions, like the PBS and Medicare, as having to be exempted from ISDS reveals that the general protections are not adequate."

The provision that lists specific bodies such as the PBS and Medicare is also enclosed in square brackets, indicating that it has not yet been agreed to by other parties.

The Minister's office has hypocritically said:
"Anybody who has a genuine interest in understanding the true state of negotiations from Australia's perspective is encouraged to participate in our long-running public consultation process," it added.
But the kicker is that the general public, the press and most parliamentarians do not have access to the actual documents - bar those that have been leaked - and have no way to give opinions (and certainly are unlikely to be listened to) because the meetings are held in relative secret.

It's relatively secret because the trade reps of governments pushing this dangerous pact attend the meetings; and at least 600 corporations have access to documentation and are allowed input. THAT's what is hypocritically called public consultation.

Neither the public, press or most parliamentarians are allowed access to actual TPPA or TISA docs etc. Consultation is secret.

Trade and government officials pushing these globalist pro-corporate pacts, make assertions - not backed up by documentation. They cannot be trusted because the few leaked chapters that have been made public show the assertions are misleading at best.

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire
Introduction

Truth, Lies, Deception, Secrecy and Coverups - Democracy under Fire

Like many others, I've only recently awakened to the assault on democracy and civil liberties the world over.

The Blogs I post are for educational purposes - to inform the public of relevant details regarding the truth of what is happening in governments the world over - and to encourage positive peaceful change. 

An informed public is powerful. But authoritarian rulers do not want the public to be informed. They lie, deceive, mislead and operate in secrecy to hide actions that would alarm or disgust the public and/or are not to the benefit of the public. 

Informing the public of the truth has become a battle between right versus might; truth versus lies and deception; transparency versus secrecy and coverups.

Democracy and civil liberties are under fire from within in many countries - by some of our own elected representatives, as well as some powerful government administrators and those in power in the military-industrial-surveillance complex - who want to consolidate and grow their power base nationally and internationally. 

Mass surveillance, propaganda, censorship and entrenched government secrecy are being used to disempower the public and provide the power elite with unwarranted authority and control over the public. 

Democracy and civil liberties are also under threat from the masterminds behind the financial sector - whose deliberate, calculated wheeling and dealing has likely resulted in the rise and fall of economies. These money monarchs likely also have substantial control over governments the world over because of what they can do that would influence the value of investments or level of loans of various countries. 

The political whipping system is another major threat to the democratic process - that should be seriously curtailed or abolished. 

The consequence of these factors has been evolution of so-called democratic governments run by administrations who dance to the tune of the rich and powerful and ignore the consequences of policies and law changes on the general public. 

We are being more and more ruled by an elite group who would lie to and deceive the public without blinking an eye, turn a blind eye to wrong-doing, and who are lacking in trustworthiness and integrity. Knowledge based on truth brings power. This Blog is about raising awareness of the true consequences of government policies, actions and law changes - and to encourage a focus on policies actions and law respectful of democracy, civil liberties and human rights.

All that is required for evil to take hold and grow is to: close your eyes, block your ears, shut your mouth - and do nothing.
