Public Interest Analysis of Leaked Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Investment Text

After more than two years of negotiations under conditions of extreme secrecy, on June 12, 2012, a leaked copy of the investment chapter for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement was posted at Public Citizen has verified that the text is authentic.
The leaked text provides stark warnings about the dangers of “trade” negotiations occurring without press, public or policymaker oversight. It reveals that negotiators already have agreed to many radical terms granting expansive new rights and privileges for foreign investors and their private corporate enforcement through extra-judicial “investor-state” tribunals.

Internet Freedom Declarations / Manifestos

Very strong Declaration below, except for the "access" portion... the term "promote" will be abused into "coerce" for "the good of all."
Nevertheless, worth reviewing... Ironically, I saw a couple headlines today about Ron Paul's internet manifesto

here's the link to the Declaration below:
I found this one from the left leaning TruthOut here

We stand for a free and open Internet.

We support transparent and participatory processes for making Internet policy and the establishment of five basic principles:

Expression: Don't censor the Internet.
Access: Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks.
Openness: Keep the Internet an open network where everyone is free to connect, communicate, write, read, watch, speak, listen, learn, create and innovate.
Innovation: Protect the freedom to innovate and create without permission. Don’t block new technologies, and don’t punish innovators for their users' actions.
Privacy: Protect privacy and defend everyone’s ability to control how their data and devices are used.

Romney Done Deal at RNC Convention?

All eyes on Nebraska July 14

"A leader of the Tea Party/Paul movement in Nebraska is Laura Ebke, a blogger and chairwoman of Republican Liberty Caucus, which promotes limited government and individual liberty.

Ebke was called in to a meeting with the governor recently, where (governor) Heineman “made it clear to us that he wasn’t very happy” about the group’s support for the candidate for (GOP state) chairman that he had not endorsed, John Orr. She said the governor said they shouldn’t challenge his authority to name a state chairman.

They were not dissuaded, however. (NE GOP incumbent chairman) Fahleson’s move (not resigning) this week solved that problem for Heineman – delaying that battle until next spring."

Iowa Changing of the GOP Guard

Twice at the Iowa GOP state convention, efforts were made to restrict any criticism of a Republican from anyone holding an elected state-party position. Twice those efforts failed, thankfully. The insularity that the big-government, war-mongering Republicans want to impose on their fellow Republicans is stifling.

It’s no secret that 23 of 28 non-bound voting delegates from Iowa at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August are Ron Paul loyalists or supporters – including new Iowa party chair A.J. Spiker, who was formerly a Ron Paul paid staffer. The Ron Paulistas, as some refer to them, have taken over the Republican Party of Iowa, and nothing was more evidence of this than the peaceful, professional, and controversy-free manner in which last Saturday’s statewide convention played out.

Iowa Governor Signs Proclamation Against Agenda 21

For the Republican county supervisors who previously stated that Agenda 21 does not exist, I would point them to Governor Branstad’s recent proclamation against Agenda 21, which was on display at the convention.

But, is the Agenda 21 theme getting co-opted?

Don't forget the White House Rural Council....

Scott Stafne Running for Washington State Supreme Court

Sometimes you just have to SCREAM!

Paul Revere had to scream, “The British are coming!”. A whisper or mild voice would not have alerted the people to the danger approaching. There is a similar need for candidates for the Supreme Court to be loud and clear about what is going on in Washington’s judicial branch of government.
