Does President Obama transfer world power to transnational corporations?

29
Political observers called the last big six-day tour of US President Barack Obama through the capitals of their main allies a failure. They recalled the revealingly cold meeting of Obama in Saudi Riyadh, the mass protests in German Hanover, the arrival in pajamas of the two-year-old grandson of the British Queen George to the American guest, and many more particulars that characterize the current attitude of the world elite to the US president ending his term.




America puts Britain at the tail of the queue

At the same time, Barack Obama’s trip overseas abounds in new meaningful statements by the current American leader. Characteristic in this sense are his meetings in London. Here, Obama acted as guardian of European unity. He did this thoroughly. The visit of the US President was preceded by his article in the Daily Telegraph daily, Obama was later interviewed by the BBC television, and at the end of the program he held a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron and spoke to young people at Lindley Hall in London.

The main theme of the appeal of the American president to the British public was his concern about the possible exit of the UK from the European Union. The impression was that Barack Obama arrived in London not to congratulate the royal person on his jubilee, but to persuade the British not to refuse membership in the European Union. The United States sees in Britain a conductor of their interests in a united Europe, a kind of counterweight to the Paris-Berlin axis. Therefore, Washington categorically does not like the expected exit of London from European structures.

In the course of the trip, the tone of the statements of the American president also changed. In a newspaper article, Obama convinced the British: “A strong Europe is not a threat to the global leadership of Britain, it strengthens it. The United States sees how your important voice ensures that Europe maintains a strong position on the world stage and makes the EU open, future-oriented and closely connected with its allies on the other side of the Atlantic. ”

Then, according to American tradition, he turned to threats. In an interview with BBC News, Obama has already scared local television viewers that the United States will favor trade deals with the European Union, large blocs, country alliances, and Britain “will be at the tail of the line” in its policies. “The UK will not be able to negotiate with the United States about anything faster than the European Union. We will not upstage relations with our main trading partner. And it may take ten years for us to come to an agreement, ”the US president said at the BBC.

So at once, from a major ally and partner, Britain was turning into a second-class country, little interested in the United States. At one point, it seemed to be a bluff from a Washington guest. Points over the "and" arranged his meeting with young people. The very format of the audience suggested a discussion of promising topics and directions. And they sounded.

By inertia, Obama warned British youth of “isolationism” (“I am here to ask you to abandon self-withdrawal calls from world affairs”), but he spoke more about the transatlantic partnership. Perhaps, for the first time, the President of the United States opened the veil of secrecy over new trade unions, which are created in an environment of such a degree of closeness that even US congressmen are demanding to disclose the details of already concluded and still preparing interstate transactions.

Young people did not dedicate Obama to high secrets, but he explained the ideology of creating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the United States and the European Union. “Achieving the conclusion of a treaty is a difficult task,” the distinguished guest from Washington said to the young Londoners, “because each country has its own local interests and, in order to reach an agreement, each country must give up something.”

This failure should materialize into universal business opportunities, uniform requirements for companies in two economic spaces on both sides of the Atlantic. Well, and in order that no one interferes with the “opportunities of companies”, it is planned to create an international corporate court. Business will be lodged there with claims against states and governments, since, according to Obama, in the twenty-first century, in the context of globalization, trade agreements become higher than state interests.

The number of supporters of the Transatlantic Trade Partnership has fallen sharply in Germany.

Europeans guessed something similar. At the end of 2014, a petition was sent to the European Commission against concluding a partnership, the signature of which left 1,1 a million people. A year ago, mass protests against the transatlantic agreement were held in more than 500 points. The largest was the protest event in the Spanish city of Madrid. 20 thousand people took part in it.

This time by the arrival of Obama, German Hanover protested. On the streets here took more than 35 thousands of people. They were protested by 20 social unions representing trade unions, anti-globalists, environmentalists, consumer associations, and opposition parties. According to surveys ordered by the Bertelsmann Foundation, in recent years in Germany the number of supporters of free trade with America fell from 55 to 17%.

People fear a decline in European standards, the appearance of genetically modified products for sale, and changes in labor laws in favor of corporations. Other “joys” are also predicted, the realization of which in the interests of transnational business can absorb even the sovereign rights of states.

This is what Georg Jansen, the head of the German farmers' union says: “In the EU, if there is even a suspicion that the product is harmful, then it cannot enter the market. In America, they rely on the principle of knowledge and say: "Until there is scientific evidence of harm, the product may be on the market."

And there are many such differences. But more people care about ignorance. “The population is not involved in the negotiations, and the parliamentarians are not partly involved in them. We oppose a policy that is being closed behind closed doors. Therefore, we call for greater democracy and transparency, ”says Simone Peter, co-chairman of the Green Party.

The theme of "transparency" is very relevant. Not so long ago, the German government in the conditions of the strictest secrecy acquainted the ministers and deputies of parliament with the text of the agreement on the Transatlantic Trade Partnership. It happened in the library of the Ministry of Economics. Dedicated Germans were allowed to familiarize themselves with the document provided they lack smartphones, cameras and laptops. So it remains only to guess what other surprises will bring the agreement, so aggressively promoted by the American president.

He is actively supported by the German business. Last year, the United States became Germany's largest trading partner, ahead of France, which has occupied this place for decades. In just one year, Germany’s foreign trade turnover with the United States grew by 20 percent - to 173 billion euros. This was due to an increase in the volume of German exports to the United States to 114 billion euros.

The figure, of course, is inferior to the trillion-dollar turnover of American transnational companies, but it pleases the soul of German business, which has faced problems in Europe and the world. Today, according to representatives of business circles and economists of Germany, the agreement on the creation of a free trade zone between the EU and the USA is in all respects beneficial to German enterprises. But the German society began to think differently and more and more actively protests against the trade agreement being prepared in secret.

Now, many in the world call the losing duck, the expiration of his term as American president, wondering what memory he will leave stories. Just with this, Barack Obama seems to have decided. He expects to issue a Transatlantic Trade Agreement by the end of the year. Together with the already signed Trans-Pacific Treaty, these two documents should radically change the economic picture of the world. In it, according to the plan of American strategists, trade agreements will become higher than the sovereign interests, and, therefore, the power will now shift to transnational business. Would the world agree with that? This question has not yet found its answer ...

      Yes, and about the "kick", I categorically disagree with you ... Nobody needs it to kick him, it discredited itself with its "exclusivity" so much that he was sent to the ward with the "Napoleons" ...
      With regard to the article: "President Obama transfers power over the world to transnational corporations" ... - President Obama can only convey any fiction, an intangible sense of power or "exclusivity" ...

      So that's what sanctions against Russia are for! To tear off the business of Europe from Russia and smoothly switch it to the United States. They say there is still no alternative. That is what Ukraine, Syria and other provocations are for. This is the bloody "business" of international corporations. And Obama and others like him are just sixes from corporations running errands!

    What to do, the world is changing, new times are coming. What about the USA? Their sunset is inevitable, like the sunset of the Roman Empire. More detailed information can be found in the article here. And this is an excerpt from there:
    And all just for the sake of the interests of several clans whose main assets are wonderfully concentrated on one small island - in the UK. City of London - this is where 117 from the 500 of the world's largest corporations concentrated. Headed by the heir to the throne, Prince Charles, the Island Club, includes 4000 oligarchs who control the finances of the countries of the so-called Commonwealth of Nations. The organization, whose official head is Queen Elizabeth II, is the largest association in the world - 24% of the earth's land, 30% of the world's population.
    Today, the whole flock has to reformat its policies.

    Here it speaks mainly of the fact that neither human health nor the person himself is important. The main income of state companies, and therefore the states themselves. The rest is dust in the wind.

    In short, the American Rockefellers want to crush the British Rothschilds for themselves. And for this, it is beneficial for Americans to keep Britain within the EU. Then it will be easier for Americans to control the Anglo-Saxons through Brussels. After leaving the EU, the British will leave the US dictates.

    No matter how cold Obama was met and whatever incidents occurred, in these countries there are enough people who not only support him, but who are ready to rush to fulfill it on the first command. This also applies to top officials of states. Therefore, the opinion of the people is not interesting to anyone, they sell the question using their resource.

    Multinational companies, through their lobby and other tools in the United States, are putting pressure on all structures in one way or another connected with this issue. Poor Obama simply has nowhere to go, but stands between a rock and a hard place, and as before, has no chance to change anything.

    There are so many rumors and myths about these corporations, and no specifics. Who, what, names, surnames, there is nothing, only conversations. In my opinion, all this is pure bluff, it would be different, but the same Cuba would have been razed to the ground long ago, and all the other "territorial giants".

          As such, there is no "government" in the sense that we are investing. But there are the heads of giant global corporations who have influence over the vast majority of politicians in all countries of the world. AND naturally, they are forced to agree among themselves, sharing, merging, weaning, arranging conflicts, pushing profitable international agreements .. they act in order to preserve their empires, and ensure their development. And they absolutely do not intend to take into account the sovereign interests of "some" individual countries. So what about your

    Strange title of the article. "Transnational companies", or rather "transnational banking", both controlled the United States, and they are controlled and will continue to operate in the future. And the "Transatlantic Trade Agreement" is already an established fact - as soon as Merkel spoke in favor, then we can assume that this document has already been "signed."

    An interesting article. It turns out. The USA as a tool to capture world trade. Introduce the rules of trade. They cover with force the expansion of TNCs in the Bregion. They open up companies to capture entire countries, such as Ukraine, where Monsanto is buying up land. By the way, those who believe that TNCs are a myth , recently I was surprised to learn that Monsanto is the owner of one of the most powerful and oldest PMCs, which also works in Ukraine. The agricultural corporation grows agricultural products using GMO technology. Monsanto grows hybrid varieties, for example, rice, which are not reproduced, that is, seeds will always have to be It gives free seeds to the countries of Southeast Asia, planting them on your material, GMO varieties infect all the lands around, destroying natural varieties.
    An ideal situation for Monsanto will be a situation when it will become impossible to grow agricultural products. Only to buy. From Monsanto. It is strange that the Rules of the Transatlantic Partnership have not been published, only EU members are familiarized with them, limitedly, and on receipt. What kind of monster are they creating. However, for those who have studied the classics of Marxism, everything is clear .. To destroy competition in the world. To create a Trade Federation. It’s. “Yes, this is Star Wars. Hm ... the film must be revised.

    transfers power to transnational corporations

    Transnational, international - all this means one thing - Jewish.
    And everything is done to please the Zionists, purposefully and consistently seizing power over the whole world.
    And they do it with the wrong hands, remaining in the shade.
    And all nations are skillfully fooled, including the Russian people, saturated with internationalism ...
    The Germans tried to abandon internationalism - they were destroyed by organizing a world massacre ...

    It is planned to create an international corporate court. Business will appeal to states and governments there, because, according to Obama, in the twenty-first century, in the context of globalization, trade agreements become higher than state interests.
    Trade interests have long since become higher than those of the state. In particular, we have repeatedly observed this in the actions of our so-called. "elites"! But here the goal is to subordinate all European business to the interests of the Americans - with Russia's unceremonious rejection of the negotiation process, "so that the water does not muddy." And since European business needs sales markets, and at the same time with Russia, due to the sanctions, they cannot fully cooperate, then they will turn their eyes to the side of Big Brother! wassat Which they, ultimately, safely and gobble up.

    He wrote more than once here that the interests of the Rothschilds (the Levites are the highest caste of priests - the Jews) and the Rockefellers (not Jews - the Anglo-Saxons) finally diverged after the bombing of the Twin Towers in New York. The Rothschilds (Jews) left the SGA and the Old World, taking their gold from Fort Knox in the amount of 8 tons and placing it on the Shanghai Financial Exchange. Again, the Rothschilds manage $ 500 trillion. The Rockefellers after the "divorce" were left with the FRS, the printing press for the production of green waste paper, the SGA, Canada and the Old World (Europe) as territories. With regards to the world government. Money rules the world. Both the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers are not the biggest players in finance capital. The English queen Elizabeth and the Vatican are much richer in this regard. It should not be forgotten that Canada and Australia remain under British protectorate today - they are by no means rogue. And the Vatican is generally a black hole as the keeper of the history of the world and of finance. Something like this.
