TPP Treaty: Intellectual Property Rights Chapter

When something this big is this secret, one can only assume that it does not benefit the common folk, but rather is another legal conundrum that is designed by those who feel a need to control, to make business even more profitable for themselves and to make life even more difficult for the people of the world. TPP… sounds like “trap”.

Today, 9 October, 2015 WikiLeaks releases the final negotiated text for the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP encompasses 12 nations representing more than 40 per cent of global GDP. Despite a final agreement, the text is still being withheld from the public, notably until after the Canadian election on October 19.

The document is dated four days ago, October 5th, or last Monday, the same day it was announced in Atlanta, Georgia that the 12 member states to the treaty had reached an accord after five and a half years of negotiations.

The IP Chapter of the TPP has perhaps been the most controversial chapter due to its wide-ranging effects on internet services, medicines, publishers, civil liberties and biological patents. “If TPP is ratified, people in the Pacific-Rim countries would have to live by the rules in this leaked text,” said Peter Maybarduk, Public Citizen’s Global Access to Medicines Program Director. “The new monopoly rights for big pharmaceutical firms would compromise access to medicines in TPP countries. The TPP would cost lives.”

Global Warming – Largest Science Scandal in US History?

It is understandable how well-meaning people can get caught up in a well-funded campaign such as “global warming”, for our minds are impressed by experts and we have been taught to take sides in sports and politics – and root for our side – “Our side right or wrong.” But I thought it was interesting how some very high-level scientists express their doubts – and how some doubters have faced fatal reprimands (see UK climate scientist Peter Wadhams feared assassination by ‘death squad’).

And all the while we watch the weather change – as it always has and probably always will – going up and down and yet it appears that by the records, the weather is getting colder, earlier…

record cold 100315

 

Explaining his shocking resignation from the American Physical Society, Professor Emeritus of physics Hal Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara wrote, “It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist”…

“The climate models used by alarmist scientists to predict global warming are getting worse, not better; carbon dioxide does far more good than harm; and President Obama has backed the “wrong side” in the war on “climate change,” says one of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists, Dr. Freeman Dyson…

According to Aerospace Meteorologist Brian Walsh, it was only the second time on record since 1874 that snow was recorded in St. John’s in the month of September. Winter arrived early in Norway and glaciers are advancing in Washington State. “The global warming agenda is a desperate effort to gain greater control over our lives.” – Walter E. Williams. We already have a veritable blizzard in Romania. “At least one month too early…

In a post-entitled “Quick Note to the Pope,” meteorologist Joe Bastardi asks the Pope to look at the factual record of CO2 and temperature in the geological history of the earth…

The BBC printed almost two years ago “I’ve been a solar physicist for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this,” says Dr. Richard Harrison, head of space physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire. “If you want to go back to see when the Sun was this inactive… you’ve got to go back about 100 years,” he says. This is just the beginning of a deep freeze. Anyone who says otherwise is lying and consumed with their own egos that are bigger than the sun.

This is of course very important. Sen. Cruz tells us that the Obama administrations new global warming regulations could cost up to 10 million jobs and impose massive costs on American consumers…including millions of African Americans and Hispanics. In addition, people are being mislead and instead of preparing for increasing cold, which is much more dangerous to health, they have everyone believing that it is getting warmer when it is not. Cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather. Doctors and people almost everywhere should be training to treat cold and damp conditions because these conditions will be responsible for increases of disease.

“Our way of life faces a huge threat in the next couple of months. Totalitarians of all complexions are hoping to seize an opportunity in Paris to sneakily create the legal and political chains to turn the free democracies into a little soviet cogs in a suffocating UN-controlled world,” says Viv Forbes.

Madsen: Evidence Shows Clinton Ran a Parallel, Outsourced State Dept

Clinton received help from George Soros to run shadow gov’t

The real scandal surrounding Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s private email system may be that she was running, in concert with a private consulting firm tied closely to George Soros, an outsourced and parallel State Department answerable only to her and not President Obama, the Congress, or the American people. …

It is clear that Mrs. Clinton used her private email system to seek advice on major foreign policy issues, from her friend and paid Clinton Foundation adviser Sidney Blumenthal providing private intelligence on Libya’s post-Qaddafi government and possible business ventures to Clinton friend Lanny Davis seeking favors from Mrs. Clinton. It should be noted that Davis was a paid lobbyist for the military junta of Honduras that overthrew democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya in 2009. It also should be noted that Mrs. Clinton voiced her personal dislike for the late Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, when, after he was assassinated by U.S.-armed jihadist rebels, boasted, “We came, we saw, he died!”

It was highly unusual for Abedin to receive a U.S. government paycheck while also receiving a consultant’s salary from Teneo. Teneo was founded in 2011 by Doug Band, a former counselor to Bill Clinton. Teneo, which is as much a private intelligence firm as it is an investment company and “governance” consultancy, has its headquarters in New York and branches in Washington DC, Brussels, São Paulo, London, Dublin, Dubai, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Melbourne. With the exception of its investment arm, Teneo closely resembles the former CIA-connected firm where Barack Obama worked after he graduated from Columbia, Business International Corporation (BIC). Teneo’s marketing claims match those made by BIC during its heyday: Teneo works “exclusively with the CEOs and senior leaders of many of the world’s largest and most complex companies and organizations.” …

Suicide and Cardiovascular Death after a Cancer Diagnosis

A large body of evidence suggests high levels of distress and psychiatric symptoms among patients who receive a diagnosis of cancer. Patients with cancer have been shown to be at increased risk for suicide and cardiovascular events. However, most results have been interpreted to be consequences of treatment or the burden of living with a progressing cancer. The psychological stress induced by the diagnosis itself may also give rise to such serious consequences. However, only a few studies have explored the period immediately after a cancer diagnosis.

We recently observed that patients with prostate cancer both in Sweden and the United States have increased risks of suicide and cardiovascular events within weeks after their cancer diagnosis the observations are proved to be independent from shared causes between cancer and these immediate health outcomes, they may have important implications for both cancer-screening policy and organized supportive care. We therefore used the nationwide registration of cancers and causes of death in Sweden to estimate the risk of death from suicide or cardiovascular diseases among all patients in whom cancer had recently been diagnosed.

Given the current state of cancer treatment, how can anyone blame someone who has been diagnosed for dying as a response to the diagnosis alone?

What are they dying of? They are obviously not dying of cancer, but of despair. They are dying of fear. And this is the travesty of the modern medical diagnosis. Not only is the patient given no hope, but s/he is urged to immediately begin “treatment” which consists of three methods which are known to cause and/or spread cancer: radiation, chemotherapy and surgery.

The pity is – as well as the good news is – that no one needs to die of cancer. The diagnosis of cancer is not a one-way dead-end road. Everyone can prevent and/or recover from this disease. A new video series – The Truth About Cancer – has just be released and is worth watching. Sign up to see Episode 1 and if you like it, you can see more on YouTube or buy the DVDs.
