Shocking Schumer

Chuck Schumer

Even Chuck Schumer, the New York senator and a man who never found a global trade deal too ugly to hug, fears that the Trans-Pacific Partnership would let corporations roll back laws at every level of government. Yes, the TPP is shameful.


Senator Chuck Schumer, a leader of the corporate wing of congressional Democrats and heir apparent to outgoing Minority Leader Harry Reid, never met a global trade deal too ugly to hug.

So when he says, “This is really troubling,” you know his eyes have been singed by something truly hideous.

That “something” is the trade and investment scam called the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The TPP only masquerades as a trade deal. It’s actually a gross enlargement of multinational corporate power over our people’s sovereignty.

Specifically, a leaked chapter of this secretly negotiated, 12-nation deal empowers foreign corporations to challenge America’s laws, rules, and court rulings — whether local, state, or national — by suing our governments in private, corporate-run tribunals set up by the United Nations or the World Bank.

That’s what made Chuck Schumer nearly upchuck.

Exactly.“Savvy, deep-pocketed foreign conglomerates,” he gasped, “could challenge a broad range of laws we pass at every level of government, such as made-in-America laws or anti-tobacco laws.”

Moreover, global corporate giants from Japan, Australia, Mexico, or other nations in the TPP could sue us not just for any actual harm they claim to suffer because of, say, our clean water laws, but for undermining their “investment-backed expectations.”

Translated from corporate-speak, that means a foreign conglomerate could haul our clean water regulations before a tribunal just by claiming that the rules undermine profits.

The corporate and governmental elites who want to keep this raw deal a secret knew that its uglies would gag you, me, and even Schumer. So they added an extra layer of secrecy, mandating that the sovereignty-busting chapter not be declassified until four years after the TPP is approved.

They probably have something worse already set in place for us knowing them... So beware free trade isn't free. .TPP is bad for us, wake up America. They want it so bad they will do almost anything to sneak it in...

ALERT ALERT

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
