The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is maybe the most important yet most misunderstood legislation you likely never even heard of.
And if you DID hear about it, maybe you thought it was just ‘some little trade deal’… in reality the TPP has little if anything to do with trade. TPP = 29 Chapters in all and of them only FOUR have anything in them even remotely related to trade.
Senator Bernie Sanders said this about the TPP:
“The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a disastrous trade agreement designed to protect the interests of the largest multi-national corporations at the expense of workers, consumers, the environment and the foundations of American democracy.”
The TPP was not mentioned on TV news and in fact HUGE efforts were made to keep the entire thing TOP SECRET. TPP is highly controversial, a complicated ‘agreement’ yet crucial to lives of people not just in the U.S. but all around the world.
Not only did very few media sources discuss the TPP, but one who DID discuss it was criticized by President Obama and then the station (MSNBC) actually fired that very popular newscaster! Ed Schultz of MSNBC is informed, fact checked and speaks for the American people.

All while American service members fight and die to protect the interests of whoever the investors are.
