WikiLeaks releases latest documents from TISA negotiations … The classified annex to the draft “core text” of the Trade in Services Agreement is part of what is being secretly negotiated by the U.S., EU and 22 countries.  The website WikiLeaks released on Wednesday classified documents from the Trade in Services Agreement, or TISA, which is a huge trade agreement being negotiated in secret by the United States, the European Union and 22 other countries.  -Telesur

This release seems to make it clear that global elites are using trade treaties to write a new global constitution.

What is the new structure being imposed?

Over the past millennium, societies have been organized around feudalism and democracy. Now we are headed toward corporatism.

TISA is one of several global trade agreements now under active negotiations. Another is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and a third is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

TPP has been successfully negotiated and ratified. TPIP seems to be in some difficulty, currently.

From the EU Observer:

TiSA is based on the WTO’s General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), which involves all WTO members.  The key provisions of the GATS – scope, definitions, market access, national treatment and exemptions – are also found in TiSA.

The talks are based on proposals made by the participants.  TiSA aims at opening up markets and improving rules in areas such as licensing, financial services, telecoms, e-commerce, maritime transport, and professionals moving abroad temporarily to provide services.

This is fairly innocuous sounding. But none of these deals are innocuous.

Based on the WikiLeaks release, Telesur explains TISI this way,

The documents include a previously unknown annex to the TISA core chapter on “State Owned Enterprises,” which imposes unprecedented restrictions on SOEs and will force majority owned SOEs to operate like private sector businesses.

The leaked documents show how stipulations outlined in the TISA documents advanced the “deregulation” of big corporations entering overseas markets.

According to the leaked documents, the TISA rules would also restrict governments’ ability to determine the size or growth of certain economic activities and entities, preventing nations from limiting the size of foreign companies in the market.

This perfectly buttresses our previous perspective that the world is moving toward an era of increased globalism driven by corporate activism. You can see a previous article HERE.

It was the Gutenberg Press that basically ended feudalism. Once people could read bibles for themselves, they discovered the Roman Catholic Church had been lying.

And once the lies were understood, the Church lost credibility – and so did its endorsements. The “divine right of kings” became something of  a dead letter and feudal credibility was shattered.

Brand-name prescription drug prices have doubled in the last five years, according to a new report. Now some public health groups and organizations say things could get worse, if the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal delays the introduction of generic drugs. RT America’s Ed Schultz speaks with Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, about how the new deal could lead to even higher costs of medication.

Techie’s Diapers In A Twist Over Trump’s Apple Remark

Trump just said he’d force Apple to make their damn computers in America, and this raised a crib-howl from techies. You know, those super-intelligent “humanitarian progressives” who somehow finesse the fact that their cherished gizmos are manufactured in foreign factories where the workers are virtual slaves.

Techies: “Slaves? Just the cost of doing business. We still love everybody.”

For the moment, to avoid ad hominem arguments, let’s forget that Trump made the remark; and let’s also forget that truly free markets don’t exist on a macro scale.

Here is the obvious knock-you-in-the-face truth: you can’t have a level playing field if you allow US companies to go abroad, set up factories in places where their costs are minimal, and export those products back to the US. That kind of operation destroys companies who are making the same products in America, at much higher costs.

This isn’t economics. You don’t need algorithms to figure it out. You don’t need experts to weigh in with their fatuous bloviations. Anybody with three active brain cells can see the truth.

Here is the bottom line: free markets, to the degree they exist, were never designed for international trade. They were designed for national economies.

In order to make international trade work, you have (you had) tariffs. A company abroad, no matter who owns it, can only ship goods into the US for sale if it pays a big fat tax to level the field.

But then it all changed: no-tariff free trade entered the scene. This was the invention of Globalists, whose ambition was to “liberate mega-corporations” from any and all reasonable obligations, so they could roam the world minus any allegiance to their home countries, and basically act as predators.

This is GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, the upcoming TPP, and so on. Treaties.

Let’s say there are 50 companies in the US who make sneakers here. The average cost of a pair is $2. That’s the manufacturing cost. Four of these companies shut their plants in the US and go to China, where they make a pair for 16 cents. They bring all those sneakers back here for sale. What happens to the other 46 American companies who are still making their sneakers here? Get the correct answer and you earn an A in Globalism 101.
