The outrage is that Congress is pushing ahead the TPP, selling us all into economic slavery. Please contact your Senators and demand that they stop!

As of 2:15pm, Chicago time, there is only a few hours left to make the call, before the vote is taken. If there is no immediate backlash, the vote is going to pass.

The immediate situation is this: The TPP has already been passed - but it depends on whether the TPA now passes in the Senate, in a few hours from now.

The TPA, ("Trade Promotion Authority"), is necessary to, "Fast Track," the TPP, i.e., ram-rod it through Congress for its final vote, with no changes by Congress.

SO: The important thing is to stop the vote on TPA - ASAP!

Please call your Senators!!! Yell bloody hell! Or try the polite approach:

202/224-3121 Senate / House public switchboard

(NOTE: The Democrats, supported by Progressive conservatives, managed to stop the TPP from going through - UNTIL the passage of the TPP yesterday. They voted against a (TPP) "pro-jobs" bill, because to do so would head off the TPP at the pass. But, now with the TPP being passed, guess what is happening?

(Obama is telling Democrats, "The TPP is on my desk, and I AM GOING TO SIGN IT. So - now you MUST vote for the (red-herring) pro-jobs bill, or else be blamed for the eventual JOBS failure of the instituted TPP).

I hope I am not confusing you. There is a lot more to the story - all about deception and coercion, and duplicity, kissing up to secret corporate campaign doners.

The main thing is: It all depends on today's vote on the TPA in the Senate!

As many of you know, the Omnibus Spending bill is being "fast-tracked" through Congress. Buried in the 1,600 page bill, (which allowed the public only hours to review), are many destructive "mini-bills". Among these are: the removal of the paltry Dodd-Frank regulations on Big Banks & Wall Street. Also: Federal Pension reductions, (presaging the coming moves to reduce Social Security). Also: FDIC insurance on exorbitant derivatives, which will bilk taxpayers and private bank accounts for many $trillions, once that market bubble crashes - not if - when. There is also a 10x increase in gift allowances for members of Congress. And, there is the global faux-treaty, the TPP, (Trans-Pacific {trade} Partnership), has been cloistered in this bill. All of this is a monumental outrage.

After downed airplanes, Russia, ISIS, Ebola, & race polarisation - there comes the release of the CIA Torture Report. I have been studying the latter, and it is clear to me that this issue was expertly planned to divert attention - into partisan blame-placing, while the Omnibus Spending Bill was being sneaked through, behind the smoke and mirrors. I HAVE to write more on this diversion soon. Please stay tuned.

If any of you can post now about either of these issues - the Spending Bill, (and/or the TPP), and the release of the provocative CIA Torture Report, I urge you to do so.

In the mean time, please follow this selective link to my journal, where I have written about some important issues, with you in mind. 1 - The immanent DERIVATIVES catastrophe. 2 - The suspicious deaths of between 36 and 55 bank CEOs and managers this year. 3 - The TPP - (contains a wealth of links).

I am working on writing additional relevant posts, now that my living situation has improved a little. So feel free to check in on my jnl every now and then. If you have been interested in the current subject of Police Abuse, (& militarisation), you may find several posts via this mm101 link: http://madman101.livejournal.com/tag/police%20%2F%20abuse - I have, in the hopper, a mega-post on this subject, which I hope to get back to finishing soon.

These are dreadful times.

Hopefully, some of you will get active and contact your Congress persons over this Spending Bill, at least!!!
