You're so full of it when attempting to criticize which is why you're a clear cut of online education rather than the real one.

However a major concern about the TPP is that it would give multi-national corporations even more power than they already have. The ability to
sue the governments ( taxpayers ) of sovereign nations.
Let me respond to your apparently best written attempt to offer any constructive criticizm here. There are a lot of "sovereign nations" out of which most are abusive in the world. Some of the most developed ones can't see beyond their economic needs, when they are making decisions. The, perhaps, most advanced one that has its people elect their government into the White House is quite incapable to deal with its own laws/constitution and its folks' rights and obligations as well as it is confused about how to cope with those other "sovereign nations" that also are full of corruption and injustice. What you should see is how powerless Americans are when it comes to their elections, displeasure with their or other nations' governments. Virtually anyone there can take advantage of the system as long as the money, connections and time are right which is what exactly Trump has done. Now, the WH and a few other nation's leaderships are above the laws just like the major banks will be once they decide not to give you any of your own money. Telling that Canadians, Brits or Aussies are so different than their Yankee counterparts you'd really have to inflate the rights of people in those countries. Anyhow, the wealthiest pay the most in taxes which is why they manipulate the system; the most developed nations contribute the greatest to the world economy which is why they fear for their "sovereignity" today, since China and Russia may turn the tables. Without multi-national corporations the advanced economies' their banks and leaderships have little to go on with but Chinese and Russians may not need them.

Counties like Australia are ramping up their military capability in response to the possibly future military threat posed by China.
Are you really sure what you're saying there?

Stupidly however the very important and strategic Port of Darwin was leased to a company connected with the Chinese government a few years back.
Having read your freedom and human rights speeches I find it difficult to decipher your claims of "stupidity" there. The land in free world can be sold to others unless they are criminals which I don't assume the Chinese there were.

On the other hand,

The former Obama administration was quite concerned about this this and very surprised for obvious reasons. They made their alarm over this quite clear. The US has thousands of Marines on rotation there and conducting joint military exercises with Australian troops. Plus US warships are regularly at Port of Darwin.

In regard to the Darwin Port sale Obama said "why would they ( Australia ) do that" ?? Or words to that effect. He was otherwise saying Australia was stupid for doing this. In that case I agree with Mr Obama's assessment.

I dare to question the Australian authorities for allowing the US military there. Do you think that Aussies, especially the true native ones, agreed with it? Please provide us with an appropriate "assessment" of that here!

In a nutshell, we're living in a filthy and dangerous world with, which I somehow agree with you on, multinational corporations dictating what we should or shouldn't do. Chinese and Russians are another breed (sorry for the wording fellow citizens of those nations) who may not be satisfied with the way they are looked at.
