THIS IS ALL TPP-------WE HAVE ALL THE MONEY AND NOW WE ARE BUILDING GLOBAL CORPORATE RULE. ALL OF MARYLAND POLS ARE NEO-LIBERALS AND MARYLAND IS FIRST IN INSTALLING TPP. IT IS ALL ILLEGAL!
Regarding Maryland's ranking as first in implementing TPP:
As I posted in my last blogs, all of the policies passed by Obama and Congress are tied to the TPP. Getting rid of regulation in public education and health by privatization......ignoring all laws for immigrants as the Immigration Bill readies the Congress for a flood of immigrants each year into every state.
NO ENFORCEMENT OF RULE OF LAW SO NO ONE IS PROTECTED FROM THE ABUSES OF CORPORATE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION ESPECIALLY THOSE IMMIGRANTS BEING LURED TO MARYLAND AND THEN LEFT TO WAGE THEFT AND WORKPLACE ABUSE.
So, as you political pundit and politicians pretending to be progressive in passing these laws knew then and now that all this was in preparation of TPP, I remind people that my blog talked of this for 4 years.
EVERYONE IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS KNEW ALL OF THIS WAS TPP. THIS IS WHY PUBLIC MEDIA WAS HANDED TO CORPORATIONS IN 2010.....SO FREE PRESS IN AMERICA WOULD NOT ALLOW AMERICANS TO KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THE WORLD KNOWS.....AMERICANS DO NOT BECAUSE OF CORPORATE/STATE CAPTURED MEDIA.
I am already hearing the laments of all those 'progressive' leaders......WE DIDN'T KNOW!!!!!.....and O'Malley and all of the current candidates for governor in Maryland all knew and participated in making Maryland tops in global corporate tribunal rule. Fraser Smith sounded confused over Maryland's ranking on top of Hispanic deportations even as Maryland is ranked on top for immigrant abuse and indentured status.
The important thing to remember is that all of this is reversible. You won't hear it on public media NPR/APM, but all of this is illegal and a COUP against the US Constitution and politicians allowing all of this suspension of Constitutional rights and law go unenforced are indeed acting criminally. If you look at the article below, you will see a picture of Obama and Eric Holder as the face of TPP and ending US Constitution and Rule of Law. Remember, it is the states that allow all of this Federal dismantling to occur. It is Maryland Congress people who are silent as they do the deed.....it is Maryland's O'Malley and Attorney General Gansler who suspends Rule of Law and pushes all the TPP policies through a willing Maryland Assembly. WHEN A GOVERNMENT SUSPENDS RULE OF LAW IT SUSPENDS STATUTES OF LIMITATION.
NEVER ONCE DID YOU HEAR ANY OF THIS IN US MEDIA WHILE OVERSEAS....THE MEDIA WRITES OF THE DECLINE OF AMERICA TO THIRD WORLD AUTOCRACY.
As you see US rankings in yet another democratic freedom falls between Haiti and former USSR satellite Romania.
REMEMBER, YOU ARE ONLY HEARING ALL THIS NOW BECAUSE ALL OF THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE!
US Plummets In Press Freedom Rankings
The Huffington Post | by Jack Mirkinson
Posted: 02/12/2014 7:09 am EST Updated: 02/12/2014 9:59 am EST Huffington Post
America Press Freedom Index Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index US Press Freedom Index Media News
The United States plunged 14 places in the annual Press Freedom Index released by Reporters Without Borders on Wednesday. The group said it was "one of the most significant declines" in press freedom it had tracked during 2013.
The US in now ranked 46th on the RWB list, in between Romania and Haiti. It was ranked 32nd in the 2013 index. (Finland tops the entire list.)
The press freedom group was blunt in its explanation. It cited increased efforts to track down whistleblowers and the sources of leaks, mentioning Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden in particular. It also condemned the Justice Department's surveillance of reporters, and the continued leak battle facing New York Times journalist James Risen.
RWB also criticized the United Kingdom for what it said were its "disgraceful" threats against the Guardian newspaper, and for its detention of Glenn Greenwald's partner, David Miranda.
"Both the US and UK authorities seem obsessed with hunting down whistleblowers instead of adopting legislation to rein in abusive surveillance practices that negate privacy, a democratic value cherished in both countries," the group wrote.
The decision by RWB to rank the UK 13 places higher than the US, at 33, drew a great deal of skepticism from many in the media:
The US also came under fire from the Committee to Protect Journalists, which, in its annual Attacks on the Press report, said that press freedom had "dramatically deteriorated" in 2013.
The US was 20th on the list just a few years ago. It fell 27 places in the 2012 index thanks to the harassment and arrest of journalists covering Occupy Wall Street, before climbing 15 places in 2013.

I was sitting in Baltimore in a cafe while at the table next to me a very LOUD telephone conversation was taking place. It was relevant to this conversation because the person talking was telling the other NOT TO LET ANYBODY KNOW ABOUT A PROJECT CONTRACTED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT ANYONE TO KNOW UNTIL AFTER THE PROJECT IS DONE.
This man was a Federal employee of a decade or more talking with his son, a fresh PhD now working as a government contractor on a project. The son wanted to share with everyone his accomplishments and connections but the father knew that the Federal government would not hire him again if anyone knew what that project was. Now, this was not necessarily classified information.....it was simply public policy that moved the US from domestic to global corporate structure.
SEE WHAT SNOWDEN MEANT WHEN HE SAID THAT THE PUBLIC DESERVED TO KNOW! IT IS HISTORIC VISIGOTH RAIDING OF OUR US GOVERNMENT AND ALL MONEY AND ASSETS!
I met with the same attitude a few years ago by simply trying to do research at University of Maryland Library. This is a state institution that all citizens have a right to know how it is being run. I went there and asked for access to the databank that had all of the negotiations involving the merger of Baltimore's U of M campus with College Park. The librarian was aghast that I would think there would be a database and even more so that the public would have access to it. IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS JUST ASK ME AND I WILL CHECK ON IT!
This is what a totalitarian government looks like. As people in Baltimore and Maryland know, that is how all public policy works. The public is no longer in the loop of public policy-making because all policy is written by corporate power and handed to us by neo-liberals working for that corporation. Same with the Federal government. We now know that NSA is Wall Street and we know all of the Federal outsourcing of public agency work has ended all public sector. Wall Street has been working to take over state and local government for these few decades and that is what O'Malley and Rawlings-Blake represent. Like the idea of minimum wage increase? It is all a con because TPP does not allow enforcement of labor law if it takes from corporate profit.
NEO-LIBERALS AND NEO-CONS ARE GLOBAL CORPORATE POLITICIANS. THE MEDIA'S 'CENTER' IN POLITICS IS THIS GLOBAL CORPORATE RULE.
Restoring Transparency to Automated Authority
Frank Pasquale, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
Leading finance, health care, and internet firms shroud key operations in secrecy. Our markets, research, and life online are increasingly mediated by institutions that suffer serious transparency deficits. When a private entity grows important enough, it should be subject to transparency requirements that reflect its centrality. The increasing intertwining of governmental, business, and academic entities should provide some leverage for public-spirited appropriators and policymakers to insist on more general openness.
However well an "invisible hand" coordinates economic activity generally, markets depend on reliable information about the practices of core firms that finance, rank, and rate entities in the rest of the economy. Brandishing quasi-governmental authority to determine which enterprises are funded and found, they need to be held to a higher standard than the average firm.
When Mayor Rawlings-Blake keeps telling the public that deals and contracts the city entered on behalf of the Baltimore Development Corporation are confidential and as we know full of fraud and corruption.....this is what handing our public sector over to private partnerships does. IT ENDS DEMOCRACY AND CITIZEN'S RIGHTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS DEMOCRACY. THIS IS WHAT TPP DOES AND MARYLAND HAS ALREADY IMPLEMENTED TPP.
All of Maryland's pols are neo-liberals who have worked to create this environment and they did it knowing all of it ended democracy and all of it was illegal. IT IS A COUP ON THE US CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Just because media is only now letting us know as the groundwork is laid.....WE CAN AND WILL REVERSE THIS BECAUSE IT IS ILLEGAL.
Reporters Committee of Freedom of the Press
Other bodies to which governmental or public functions are delegated.
Although the entity may have a public purpose (i.e., carrying out an advisory or quasi-legislative function), it is not subject to the Act unless it is a public body as defined by the state. § 10-502(h). Thus, for example, a University of Maryland task force that was not created by a rule, resolution, or bylaw of the Board of Regents of the University, but was created as an investigatory body wholly under the province of the Chancellor was not a public body subject to the Act. A. S. Abell Publishing Co. v. Board of Regents, 68 Md. App. 500, 514 A.2d 25 (1986). Section 10-502(h)(2) expands the definition of public bodies to include any multimember board, commission, or committee appointed by the governor or comparable local chief executive that includes at least two individuals not employed by the state or a local jurisdiction. § 10-502(h)(2).
Now, you will hear all kinds of republican groups calling what Obama is doing a COUP against the Constitution, but remember, Obama is simply continuing George Bush policy....so, the very republicans pretending to hate this constitutional attack are the ones behind it as well. THIS IS THE NEO-CON/NEO-LIBERAL 'CENTER' CORPORATE NPR/APM TELLS US IS GOOD.
Ellsberg is of course speaking of the takeover of all of the US CIA/FBI/NSA services by Wall Street and the categorization of everything as classified.....just as with the local Rawlings-Blake/Baltimore Development Corporation deals. NONE OF THIS IS CLASSIFIED.....IT IS SIMPLY A TAKEOVER OF ALL THINGS PUBLIC. Remember, Congress cannot pass laws knowing they are illegal. For example, Congress cannot pass a law that says Congress people cannot be charged with insider trading for goodness sake. Only governments in Africa pass that kind of law. The Supreme Court cannot re-write the US Constitution by pretending to be 'interpreting' it in ways that completely negate what the Constitution says.
WE THE PEOPLE ARE CITIZENS WHO WRITE THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRY. WE THE PEOPLE ARE GUARANTEED BILL OF RIGHTS. WE THE PEOPLE ARE PROTECTED EQUALLY UNDER LAW......PERIOD
Ellsberg: A Coup Against the Constitution
Published on Jun 15, 2013
Daniel Ellsberg, the man who released the Pentagon papers, says the FISA court is a sham and warrantless wiretapping, which has being going on for years before 9/11, is a violation of the US Constitution no matter what law Congress passes.
Try as I might to take any of this to court or to get the Maryland Attorney General's office to pursue these issues.....which is in fact what they should be doing.....I CANNOT GET ANY PUBLIC JUSTICE ORGANIZATION TO PURSUE WHAT IS A COUP AGAINST THE US CONSTITUTION.
The article below shows that a huge number of law school graduates are unemployed and law schools are no longer offering anything other than corporate/international law. REMEMBER, GLOBAL MARKETS ARE DEAD.
THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD HAVE FOUND GLOBAL MARKETS AND NAKED CAPITALISM FILLED WITH FRAUD AND CORRUPTION AND NOT CONDUCIVE WITH DEMOCRATIC STRUCTURES. SO, THIS ATTEMPT TO END ALL DEMOCRATIC STRUCTURES LIKE RULE OF LAW IN THE US MUST BE REVERSED!
Equal Protection Of The Law
n. the right of all persons to have the same access to the law and courts and to be treated equally by the law and courts, both in procedures and in the substance of the law. It is akin to the right to due process of law, but in particular applies to equal treatment as an element of fundamental fairness. The most famous case on the subject is Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka (1954) in which Chief Justice Earl Warren, for a unanimous Supreme Court, ruled that "separate but equal" educational facilities for blacks were inherently unequal and unconstitutional since the segregated school system did not give all students equal rights under the law. It will also apply to other inequalities such as differentials in pay for the same work or unequal taxation. The principle is stated in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution: "No State shall…deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
This is because all of the public sector has been gutted with naked capitalism and neo-liberalism ending all regulatory and public justice because corporate profits come first. ALL MARYLAND POLS ARE NEO-LIBERALS. THEY ARE NOT THE EXCEPTION AND YOU KNOW BECAUSE MARYLAND IS THE BIGGEST GLOBAL CORPORATE RULE IN THE COUNTRY.
So, Maryland's unemployment above 36% as Economic Policy Institute let's us know is based on this gutting of the public sector and public justice. All that needs be done is reverse this by running and voting for REAL PROGRESSIVE LABOR AND JUSTICE CANDIDATES IN ALL PRIMARIES BUT ESPECIALLY MARYLAND/CITY ATTORNEY. So far.....ALL OF THE CANDIDATES ARE CRONY AND NEO-LIBERAL. Remember, the first thing Mizeur said when she announced was that she would continue the public private partnerships that end the public sector and she said she would continue all the leveraging Wall Street bond debt for development-----THIS IS NEO-LIBERAL. It does not matter if she pretends to support a few progressive bones. If she pushes TPP-----none of those laws will be enforced!

Unemployment Among Recent Law Graduates Is as Bad as It's Ever Been
By Katherine Mangan
The employment rate for recent law-school graduates has fallen to its lowest level since 1994, according to figures released on Thursday by the National Association for Law Placement. Only 85.6 percent of 2011 graduates whose employment status was known had jobs nine months after leaving law school.
That rate, which has declined every year since 2008, was two percentage points below the previous year's employment level. The figure is based on data submitted by schools and includes graduates working part time and in jobs that don't require a law degree. (Recently, more than a dozen law schools have been sued and 20 more threatened with legal action over their allegedly inflated job-placement rates.)
According to a report from the association, only 65.4 percent of the 2011 graduates who reported their employment status were working in positions for which they had to pass a bar examination. More than nine percentage points below the 2008 rate, that proportion is the lowest the association has ever measured.
"For members of the Class of 2011, caught as they were in the worst of the recession, entering law school in the fall of 2008 just as Lehman Brothers collapsed ... the entry-level job market can only be described as brutal," the association's executive director, James G. Leipold, said in a written statement.
"When this class took their LSAT's and applied for law school, there were no signs that the legal economic boom was showing any signs of slowing," he said, "and yet by the time they graduated, they faced what was arguably the worst entry-level legal-employment market in more than 30 years."
Fewer than half of the employed graduates were in private practice, a share that has also been steadily declining.
The only glimmer of good news in the report was Mr. Leipold's suggestion that the job market may have bottomed out and might begin creeping up over the next few years.
The shrinking job market and declining applications have prompted some law schools to cut their incoming class sizes, while others have moved ahead with plans to expand.
