OPEN and TRANSPARENT Say "Hell No!" to the TPP. PUBLIC INTEREST

Click here to read Wikileaks' TPP Investment Chapter: https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/press.html. This agreement is being kept secret from the world public for a good reason. It is decidedly NOT in the PUBLIC INTEREST. This is an example of the high level government corruption that results when diplomatic and intelligence processes are NOT OPEN and TRANSPARENT and ACCOUNTABLE. This is an example of a product of too much secrecy. It is naked corruption. Thank you Wikileaks.

President Barack Obama

Barack Obama, I thought you were supposed to be THE MOST OPEN and TRANSPARENT administration by all reasonable measures. You disappoint me with this TPP. You are NOT OPEN and TRANSPARENT. I know every phone call you make for every citizen without a warrant right now period. Constitutional scholar. Ubiquitous surveillance. Your CIVIL RIGHTS have been trampled upon. I know everyone you call. I know everyone you e-mail. I have your internet under surveillance. We provide the phone companies and ISPs with retroactive immunity around here. They don't mind cooperating with us. They are compelled by law to keep our arrangement a secret. What are they supposed to say? Your meta-data is PRIVATE. Who you talk to when and for how long is PRIVATE. Barack Obama, you have violated the PRIVACY of everyone who uses a telephone without a warrant that is based on probable cause. That is an abuse of power. I am calling it like it is. You are a charming and affable fellow but you screwed us. Don't give us this "It's just metadata" bullshit. It's every telephone relationship of every citizen updated every 24 hours period. I call a spade a spade.

PRIVATE Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton RESPONSIBILITY

Hillary Clinton, what is your position on the TPP? Do you have a hand in this mess? Are you in on this? Can you take credit for some of this? What do you know about this? Now that Wikileaks has exposed this, what do you have to say about it, as a potential Commander in Chief? Do you think this is a good idea or not as written here: https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/WikiLeaks-TPP-Investment-Chapter/page-1.html? We're all on the same page here. What do you think, are we reading the same document or not? Is this in the PUBLIC INTEREST? Here it is in black and white. Corruption enshrined in the world's biggest trade deal which is totally secret and hidden from the public. Elizabeth Warren thinks this is a bad deal. What do you think? Is this a RESPONSIBLE question for me to ask? "Fast-Track" my ass! This deal sucks for ordinary citizens and taxpayers. That's my opinion. I'd like to know yours.

United States of America Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts

I know every phone call you make for every citizen without a warrant right now period. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Constitutional expert. Ubiquitous surveillance. I know everyone you call period. Your CIVIL RIGHTS have been trampled upon. You have no PRIVACY. Thank you Edward Snowden. While I may have some issues with the scope of your disclosures, I think this is wrong and that the citizens needed to know this. Our Commander in Chief and Congress and judicial system let us all down. They have all violated the PUBLIC TRUST. Mr. Citizens United has appointed some corrupt FISA judges who apparently don't respect the sanctity of the Fourth Amendment. The corruption is systemic. The system is broken.

My cell phone is one of my "effects," as referenced in the above paragraph. I'm sorry, you are all corrupt.
