Republicans go full Pelosi in shameless push to pass ultra-secret TPP trade deal so we can all find out what's in it

TPP trade deal

(NaturalNews) Of all the times Republicans have made fun of Nancy Pelosi for saying we have to pass Obamacare so we can find out what's in it, they're now invoking the exact same twisted logic with the push for the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). They want to enact the agreement without the public -- or even most lawmakers -- having a chance to read it first.

The TPP is a secretive trade deal that the Obama administration refuses to make public. Click here for Wikileaks documents on the TPP, and click here to read how the TPP threatens natural supplements and cosmetic products.

Public Citizen warns that the TPP would expand pharmaceutical monopolies and encourage even more patent abuse by Big Pharma.

The TPP is believed to contain provisions that could:

• Strongly promote the monopolistic intellectual property practices of drug companies and biotech firms, both of which occupy the top positions of the "most evil corporations" on the planet.

• Destroy the Second Amendment and restrict the sales of firearms and ammunition to the public, as warned by Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt.

• Outlaw GMO labeling nationwide.

• Destroy the natural supplements marketplace by criminalizing vitamins, herbs and superfood supplements.

• Criminalize the saving of seeds without corporate approval, effectively turning seed sharing operations into "criminal enterprises" subject to armed raids by the federal "seed police." For the record, the FBI already works for Monsanto as detailed in this shocking article.

Republicans now operating under the same insidious secrecy we witnessed with Obamacare

Republicans, who incessantly seek to hand more monopolistic power to evil corporations (as opposed to Democrats, who incessantly seek to hand more power to evil governments), have pushed hard for passage of the TPP, fraudulently calling it a "free trade agreement" even though it may actually restrict many free trade activities domestically.

The TPP promotes free trade in exactly the same way the U.S. Patriot Act promotes patriots. It doesn't, in other words. The name is a marketing gimmick to conceal the true nature of the agreement, which remains shrouded in astonishing secrecy.

Far from promoting free trade, the TPP seems to be a globalist-oriented corporate-pushed framework that would strip power from the U.S. Congress and destroy national sovereignty on trade issues. It would allow foreign governments to dictate what products U.S. companies can sell to the American people, and under what terms. And under the provisions being pushed by Republicans, Congress would be powerless to stop it. (Today's spineless Republicans just can't wait to give up more power and make Congress totally irrelevant, it seems...)

Democrats spearhead opposition and block a key vote

Stunningly, the Democrats have mustered enough key allies to halt a vote on one of the procedural prerequisites for the TPP. "Senate Democrats filibustered Tuesday to block the first major free-trade vote in years, dealing a blow to President Obama and GOP leaders," reports the Washington Times.

The effort was led by Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, who I've often thought of as the most courageous Democrat in the Senate. Like all Senators, he's still willing to violate the Constitution when convenient, but he's also one of the few U.S. Senators willing to take a stand for what he believes in.

"Unlike the last few years' worth of conservative objections, this time it was liberals who balked and pulled moderate Democrats with them, putting the brakes on the bipartisan push and imperiling the rest of the spring congressional agenda," the Times says, reporting from the view that halting the TPP is a bad thing.

The National Journal reports, "Tuesday's vote represents a major blow to Obama, who lobbied hard for the bill, from foes within his own party, as most Democrats sided with Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others who led the coalition of labor and progressive activists that oppose the deal."

To the great astonishment of everyone, this TPP fraudulent trade agreement has Obama allied with Republicans, and Democrats resisting tyranny!

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
