It seems like a case of mass hypnosis. People claiming they can’t say what’s in the TPP trade agreement. And mainstream media accept this premise.
“That’s right. Congress must stay silent.”
Pop quiz: who says the text of the TPP must remain secret?
Under what authority?
They can go into a sealed room and read a draft, but they can’t copy pages, and they can’t tell the public what they just read.
If there is a US law forbidding disclosure, name the law.
Can you recall anything in the Constitution that establishes secret treaties?
Is there a prior treaty that states the text of all treaties can be hidden from the people?
I see no authority anywhere that justifies withholding the text of the TPP.
Government legislators in the other 11 nations: why can’t you reveal what’s in the TPP?
Mass silence around the world. “Sorry, we can’t say what’s in the treaty. We’ll vote on it, but you the people have no input. You have to take what we do on faith.”
Who says so? By what authority?
If a US Senator held a press conference today and explained everything he read in that sealed room about the TPP, what exactly would happen to him? Would he be arrested?
Would he be charged with a federal crime?
