UPDATE: In my exhaustion and haste to complete this post, I inadvertently omitted the list of corporations and entities who at one time or another lobbied for TPP. Source of the list is OpenSecrets.org. List is now embedded further down in post.
While Agenda 21 was mostly about the environment, Agenda 2030 encompasses all areas of human activity.
Agenda 2030 Utopic? How so?
If you say something often enough, people will begin to believe it. Case in point, the United Nations website, Sustainable Development – Knowledge Platform under Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the Agenda 2030 Preamble .
“Sustainable Development” – “the vehicle for creating a long-sought new international economic order,” or “New World Order” but knowing how tens of millions feel about the “New World Order,” world leaders have chosen to cover up their nefarious agenda with a sugar-coating, i.e., reiteration of the following, shall we say, dog whistles and propaganda restated throughout the Agenda 2030 platform and often lumped into the same paragraphs for good measure:
“universal literacy” “universal goals and targets” “universal education” “universal access” “gender equality” “eradicating poverty” and “human rights” “human dignity” “universal health coverage”.
Paragraph 7, Our Vision.
- In these Goals and targets, we are setting out a supremely ambitious and transformational vision. We envisage a world free of poverty, hunger, disease and want, where all life can thrive. We envisage a world free of fear and violence. A world with universal literacy. A world with equitable and universal access to quality education at all levels, to health care and social protection, where physical, mental and social well-being are assured. A world where we reaffirm our commitments regarding the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation and where there is improved hygiene; and where food is sufficient, safe, affordable and nutritious. A world where human habitats are safe, resilient and sustainable and where there is universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.
- We commit to providing inclusive and equitable quality education at all levels – early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, technical and vocational training. All people, irrespective of sex, age, race, ethnicity, and persons with disabilities, migrants, indigenous peoples, children and youth, especially those in vulnerable situations, should have access to life-long learning opportunities that help them acquire the knowledge and skills needed to exploit opportunities and to participate fully in society. We will strive to provide children and youth with a nurturing environment for the full realization of their rights and capabilities, helping our countries to reap the demographic dividend including through safe schools and cohesive communities and families.
The United Nations’ talking points on their website makes Agenda 2030 sound like some kind of utopia and anyone who recognizes the spin for what it is and vocalizes their opposition are sure to be mocked and accused of being unfeeling and cold-blooded.
How can one disapprove with Agenda 2030’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (below) which by the way has nothing to do with climate change.
Goal 1 End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 2 End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3 Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 4 Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 5 Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Goal 6 Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Goal 7 Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Goal 8 Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Goal 9 Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Goal 10 Reduce inequality within and among countries
Goal 11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 12 Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Goal 13 Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
Goal 14 Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Goal 15 Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Goal 16 Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Goal 17 Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
Through an ambitious indoctrination process implemented from one corner of the planet to the next, relentless propaganda and force, the United Nations could achieve its goal of global governance and the formation of one colossal caste system.
Sugar coat the surface with the promise of universal healthcare and education, equality for women, children, race and gender, the eradication of poverty, and promise of peace throughout the land and Agenda 2030 is suddenly on its way to becoming reality. But at what costs?
“If the world continues on this trajectory, we will lose everything that sustains any semblance of individual liberty and freedom,” he [Patrick Wood] said. “Someone else will decide what to manufacture, how much to make, who and how much an individual may purchase, and at what cost. Someone else will tell you where you can work, for how long, at what wage. Someone else will tell you where you can live, how big it will be, how many children you can have and where you will send them for indoctrination. There will be no private property rights, no ability to pass wealth to your children.”
The repercussions of which means Americans lose what little we have left of our individual liberty and freedom. H/t Truth Axis.
Phasing out national sovereignty
In the summary of the High-Level Political Forum of Sustainable Development that came up with the 17 goals to be implemented by 2030, it clearly states that member nations will be expected to make “constitutional amendments and creation or adjustments of institutions” to implement the goals.
Martin Sajdik, president of the U.N. Economic and Social Council, states in the summary that “Governments must respond with policies that support individuals throughout their life course and promote non-discrimination and inclusivity,” with “adequate attention” given to “marginalized and disadvantaged groups, including children, youth, the old, women, indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and migrants.”
The U.N. is calling for a massive propaganda campaign at all levels to bring its “transformative global agenda“ into being. It even has a slogan: “Leave no one behind.” (http://www.wnd.com/2015/08/mega-agenda-21-resurrected-with-popes-help/)
Corbett Report (06:50 – 11:10 of video):
Just getting started.
Enter the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a pact entered into last week between the United States and eleven other nations Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam).
What Agenda 2030 has in common with the TPP is that both are not what they claim to be.
Both Agenda 2030 and the TPP are global governance, the unfurling of the New World Order, power, control, regulations, monopolization by large corporations, redistribution of wealth, off shoring American jobs, special interests, the Chamber of Commerce, lower wages and loss of liberty and national sovereignty…for starters.
Moreover, neither Congress or the Senate were permitted access to the machinations and content of the TPP negotiations, “while representatives of U.S. corporations—like Halliburton, Chevron, PHRMA, Comcast, and the Motion Picture Association of America—are being consulted and made privy to details of the agreement.”
Moday, 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….”
So how does Agenda 2030 call for universal healthcare when the TPP because of newly implemented restrictions would render affordable (generic) medication out of reach?
Eleventh Hour TPP Deal on Biotech Drugs Still Harms Access to Medications, May Increase Ire Over TPP in Congress – Statement of Peter Maybarduk, Director, Public Citizen’s Access to Medicines Program
The deal brokered today by the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) and the Australian government on biotech drugs, which supposedly paved the way for an overall “deal in principle” for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), fell short of Big Pharma’s most extreme demands but will contribute to preventable suffering and death. The final deal as reported does not seem to adhere to the “May 10th 2007 Agreement” standard on access to affordable medicines and could complicate any eventual final TPP deal’s prospects in the U.S. Congress. In biologics and other areas, TPP rules would expand monopoly protections for the pharmaceutical industry at the expense of people’s access to affordable medicines. (The May 10th Agreement was brokered in 2007 between Democratic congressional leadership and the Bush administration to begin to reduce the negative consequences of U.S.-negotiated trade agreements, for health, the environment and labor.)
…Controversies over pharmaceuticals and intellectual property, including frequently unanimous resistance from negotiating countries, have held up the TPP for years. Many courageous negotiators and others from developing countries stood up to industry and USTR pressure, consistently, to protect their people’s health. A number of harmful rules were eliminated from TPP proposals as a result of this work.
Yet the Obama administration showed itself willing to risk its entire trade agenda to satisfy the avarice of the pharmaceutical lobby. In that respect, people everywhere trying to understand why medicine prices are so high find a disheartening answer in the TPP negotiations: The pharmaceutical industry has purchased tremendous influence with political leaders.
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), a leader among House Democrats opposing the deal, held a press call on Monday blasting the protections.
“They want to lock affordable generics out of the market for eight years,” she said. “It’s going to compromise access for those who need the most, like vets and seniors and people with life-threatening ailments….”
Doctors without Borders has been sounding the alarms about pharmaceutical corporations monopolizing under the Trans Pacific Partnership for months.
In December 2014 and March 2015 Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) wrote to Barack Obama expressing growing concerns over TPP provisions threatening “to restrict access to affordable medicines and much-needed innovation for millions of people, and for treatment providers like MSF and Ministries of Health.”
MSF is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that delivers medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare in nearly 70 countries. Our ambition to provide quality health care to these populations requires constant access to affordable, quality medicines and vaccines, and patient-focused innovation.
In July 2013, MSF sent an open letter to all heads of government, Ministers of Health and lead negotiators for countries involved in the TPP negotiations expressing concerns regarding the impact that provisions in the TPP could have on access to medicines. Unless certain damaging provisions are removed, the TPP could be the most harmful trade pact ever for access to medicines, we warned in the letter.
Despite our numerous attempts to engage constructively with various U.S. government constituencies on this issue, our concerns remain largely unaddressed.…
TPP could have effects far beyond the current twelve negotiating countries. Because the TPP is billed as a 21st century model trade agreement that aims at becoming a global standard, it could have damaging repercussions for access to treatment and innovation worldwide.
We urge the United States to remove provisions that will harm access to medicines and to ensure that the final text is aligned with relevant global public health commitments….
Read letter in its entirety here.
Anyone who has been paying attention the past several years is aware that Obama could care less about innovation; and anyone who followed the fallout from the Affordable Care Act would not be surprised to learn that Obama made deals with Big Pharma choosing their interest above all else.
As far as not responding to Doctors Without Borders, not so sure about that.
Claire Bernish of Antimedia.org (and she’s not the only one) in a blog post asks, “Had the President of Nobel Peace Prize-winning Doctors Without Borders not warned us of the “imminent threat to global health” posed by the TPP, would these 22 doctors and patients have lost their lives early Saturday?”
While I am aware that our leaders have committed unspeakable acts at one time or another and for one reason or another, I really hate to think that Obama the vindictive would stoop so low.
For more on why people from other nations who despise would entertain such a thought, you can read the full blog post here.
Intellectual Property Chapter Cont.: Criminalization of Copyright Infringement –
…Leaked draft texts of the agreement show that the IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of expression, right to privacy and due process, and hinder peoples’ abilities to innovate….
The TPP Will Rewrite Global Rules on Intellectual Property Enforcement
All signatory countries will be required to conform their domestic laws and policies to the provisions of the Agreement. In the U.S., this is likely to further entrench controversial aspects of U.S. copyright law (such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act [DMCA]) and restrict the ability of Congress to engage in domestic law reform to meet the evolving IP needs of American citizens and the innovative technology sector. The recently leaked U.S.-proposed IP chapter also includes provisions that appear to go beyond current U.S. law….
The TPP could extend copyright term protections from life of the author + 50 years, to Life + 70 years for works created by individuals, and either 95 years after publication or 120 years after creation for corporate owned works (such as Mickey Mouse).
Escalate Protections for DRM (aka Digital Locks): It will compel signatory nations to enact laws banning circumvention of digital locks (technological protection measures or TPMs) [PDF] that mirror the DMCA and treat violation of the TPM provisions as a separate offense even when no copyright infringement is involved. …

Taking into account, Barack Obama’s promise of a fundamental transformation of the United States, nothing negotiated in eight years of secrecy can be good for America.
Public Citizen has compiled a list of TPP Talking Points
…the TPP can only become reality if the U.S. Congress approves it. Even with the extreme secrecy, we know a lot about the deal because of leaks of TPP texts and admissions made by the negotiators. Just on the basis of what we know already, the TPP could:
- Offshore tens of thousands of American jobs
- Lower our wages by throwing Americans into competition with Vietnamese workers making less than 65 cents per hour and increase U.S. income inequality
- Flood us with unsafe imported food and products
- Ban Buy American and “buy local” policies used to create green jobs and rebuild our economy
- Increase medicines prices
- Empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards before tribunals of corporate lawyers, and demand unlimited taxpayer dollars as compensation
- Free the Banksters from oversight
- Undermine Internet freedom
- Undermine human rights….
Besides the Chamber of Commerce lobbying for the TPP, pursuant to a list compiled by OpenSecrets.org, more than 300 corporations and groups lobbied at some point since 2006 for TPP.

Speaking of currency manipulation:
Regardless of one’s political affiliations, TPP is a disaster for all. TPP is a disaster for our national sovereignty.

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Enforcement for UN 2030 Agenda by Patrick Wood
Since President Obama achieved Fast Track Authority from Congress earlier this year, the next step toward enactment is submission of the TPP document for a straight up-or-down vote with no amendments or other changes permitted. In the meantime, the actual TPP text will be made public for a period of 60 days.
Public and Congressional debate promises to be the most contentious in modern times, far surpassing the choleric that preceded the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) under President Bill Clinton in 1994.
However, one aspect of TPP that is already being ignored is its tight synchronization with the United Nations’ recent enactment of its 2030 Agenda to implement Sustainable Development on a global scale. This will be further enhanced by the upcoming completion of the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) that is still under negotiation….
The current U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) and lead TPP architect is Michael Froman. The USTR is a member of the President’s Cabinet and as such, is Obama’s first and last authority on matters of international trade. On the USTR’s official blog, Tradewinds, Froman states,
“Trade agreements are a vital tool for combatting these global [environmental] threats. Two decades ago, environmental provisions under NAFTA were relegated to a side agreement, with only a single enforceable obligation to ‘effectively enforce your own environmental laws.’ In contrast, our most recent trade agreements contain extensive, enforceable environmental commitments. These commitments are subject to the same dispute settlement procedures as other commercial obligations, including recourse to trade sanctions in the event of a violation.” [Emphasis added]
The business of enforceable environmental commitments is further reiterated on the blog: “Enforceable commitments to protect the environment, coupled with targeted technical assistance and capacity building, can result in important environmental progress on the ground.”
