How To Build An Off-Grid Home Without ANY Construction Skills

If you have followed the presidential election this year, then you’ve likely heard one or both candidates mention the Trans Pacific Partnership – better known as TPP. But if you’re like most Americans, then you’re probably still confused about exactly what it is.

On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we discuss the Trans Pacific Partnership, explaining not only what it is but why you (and every other American) should be concerned about this trade deal. Our guest is Judith McGeary, the executive director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, which is working to defeat TPP and educate the public on their concerns.

McGeary tells us:

  • How TPP will lower food safety standards, allowing food that does not meet America’s minimal requirements to make it to our store shelves.
  • How it will impact American sovereignty, placing our government in international tribunals to defend lawsuits brought by foreign companies.
  • How it will affect “buy American” rules, preventing the enforcement of laws that require U.S. bidders on projects be given preference.

Finally, McGeary tells us how TPP could be passed in a lame duck Congress following the Nov. 8 election – and what you can do to stop it! If you want to be better informed about one of the biggest economic issues facing the world today, then don’t miss this week’s show!
