GOP BACKSTABBERS! Texas Senator Ted Cruz (Trump’s Defeated GOP Opponent) Booed At Convention For Refusing To Endorse Trump! Sarah Palin Supports Paul Ryan’s GOP Opponent Even After Trump Does 180 & Endorses Ryan Half-Heartedly (Apparently Sarah Didn’t Get The Memo). Mike Bloomberg Already Declined To Run On 3rd Party Line Himself For Fear Of Throwing Election Into GOP-Controlled House Of Representatives (He Abhors Trump Too)! Throw Anti-Trump GOPers Mitt Romney + 9 Influential Republicans, Who Have Declared Publicly They Will NOT Support Trump – Even Against Hillary (Including Christine Todd Whitman, 9/11/2001 Liar Who Said It Was Safe For 1st Responders To Work At World Trade Center Without Masks, Leading To Their Deaths). If That GOP (W)itch Can’t Support The Donald, You Can See There Is Big, Big Trouble In GOP Paradise! It Took 15 Years, But She Got It Right This Time. (Err, Did I Say 9? How About The Top 99 GOPers, Who Refuse To Back Trump!)

Tabacco: If President Obama thinks the TPP (TransPacific Partnership) is such a good idea for America, why all the secrecy, why won’t any Democrat support it, and why won’t the Republican –controlled Congress vote on it NOW instead of after the November Election in a ‘Lame Duck Congress’?

Adolf Hitler hid his Genocide of 6-Million Jews! Why? Because the World would have been against him if it had known! When Leaders tell their own Citizens LIES and/or WITHHOLD TRUTHS, you know they are up to NO GOOD!
If TPP were so Good for YOU, your president would have shouted it from the rooftops as he did when promoting ObamaCare! But re TPP, both Obama and the MSM remained strangely silent – WHY!
Adolf Hitler, Napoleon Bonaparte, George W. Bush, meet your Philosophical Successor, Barack Hussein Obama, the most clever, devious, LYING HEAD-OF-STATE ever! 300,000,000 Americans don’t even know they are bleeding to death – how clever is that!
America, if you have been expecting the Anti-Christ – here he is:

Coverage of the TPP among major cable outlets has been similarly one-sided. Since August 1, 2013, MSNBC has mentioned the Trans-Pacific Partnership in 124 evening and primetime segments, the overwhelming majority of which (103) came during The Ed Show. Fox News trails far behind with just 12 mentions of the TPP over that time period, 10 of which have come since February 1, 2015. CNN has been almost completely absent from the discussion, registering only 2 mentions of the trade negotiations – MediaMatters

SECRET TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP (TPP) DEAL EXPOSED AT LAST! Full Text Of TPP (Monsanto’s Dream Trade Deal AKA Obama’s FTA), Is Much Worse Than Anyone Thought (Except For Tabacco, That Is)!

Hillary Wants To ‘Earn’ All Those War Profiteering Dollar$ Her Hubby Never Pursued – Looks Like Bill Was The Moral One! Trump Is On A Never-ending Ego Trip! Carson Is A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing! Only Bernie Sanders ‘Might’ Represent ALL AMERICANS, And He’s NOT Perfect! In Recent Times, We Had No REAL CHOICE – In 2016 We Do! BERNIE SANDERS, NOT HILLARY ‘MONEYBAGS’ CLINTON!

AMY GOODMAN: With the fine print now disclosed, the TPP’s opponents say their worst fears have been confirmed. In a statement, Public Citizen said, quote, “The text shows that the TPP would offshore more American jobs, lower our wages, flood us with unsafe imported food and expose our laws to attack in foreign tribunals”.
ORGS IN FAVOR Of TPP: Monsanto! All Big PhRMA, Washington Fair Trade Coalition (there’s that phrase again – “Fair Trade”), Wall Street, US Chamber of Commerce,
ORGS AGAINST TPP: Over 2,000 Organizations now on Record as OPPOSING TPP! A few are listed here! And NO, I do NOT publish the TPP’s 2,000 pages here!
Among the 2,000 are Doctors Without Borders, MoveOn.org, an unprecedentedly united movement of labor, environmental, family farm, consumer, faith, Internet freedom and other organizations escalated their campaign to defeat Fast Track trade authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on April 27, 2015 with a joint 2,008-group letter urging Congress to oppose it.
Other organizations to sign the letter include 350.org, Action Aid USA, Alliance for Retired Americans, American Sustainable Business Council, Consumers Union, Defenders of Wildlife, Electronic Frontier Foundation, League of Conservation Voters, NAACP, National Nurses United, Presbyterian Church USA, Presente.org, SEIU, Union of Concerned Scientists and United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society.

Obama’s TPP Falling On Hillary’s Deaf Ear! This Post Features Hillary Clinton. Listen To What She Says Because Her Advice Is True THIS TIME, But Don’t Doubt For A Moment That If Capitalists Offer Her (As President) The Same DEAL They Offered Obama, Hillary Would Switch Like A Drag Queen! Remember, Folks, It’s Good Deeds We’re After, Not Good Rhetoric! Her Assertion Comes Only After Hillary Checked Which Way The Wind Was Blowing! (It Must Be A Windy Day!) This Is Not About GOP Talking Point ‘Hillary’s Personal E-Mail’. This Is About Hillary’s GOP-Like Capitalist Greed & Self-Aggrandizement. I Publish This Post As Follow Up On TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership). I Come To Bury Hillary, Not To Praise Her! Very Important Concept (VIC): Even Hitler Had Good Things To Say Sometimes. What Is Significant Here Is How Long It Took Hillary To Say This!
Posted on August 28, 2015 by
Former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady, Hillary Clinton, kicked off her White House bid to become the first woman U.S. President by highlighting her support for income equality, regulating Wall Street and vowing to fight for a fairer economy. On Sunday, she broke her silence on the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, saying President Obama “should listen to and work with his allies in Congress, starting with Nancy Pelosi, who have expressed their concerns about the impact that a weak agreement would have on our workers to make sure we get the best, strongest deal possible. And if we don’t get it, there should be no deal.” Clinton’s comments come as the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday rejected the first in a series of trade bills despite President Obama making a personal plea for his own party’s support ahead of the vote. We speak with Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch and author of “The Rise and Fall of Fast Track Trade Authority”; and Jeffrey Sachs, a leading economist, director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University and author of “The Age of Sustainable Development”. – Tabacco: Hillary’s ‘words’ now are better, but she and Bill have a SORDID PAST! Do you really believe in Hillary’s REFORMATION? Or is this just Hillary trying to win the Democratic Nomination! The Naïve and the Easily Influenced need NOT respond!

Which 13 Senate DemocRATS Vote With 47 Republicans To Authorize ‘Fast-Track’ For Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)? You Voters Need To Know Which RATS Are Aligned With Top 1% For Their Own Financial Advancement, Not Yours!
Posted on June 25, 2015 by
The 13 DemocRATS in US Senate:
Michael Bennet (COLORADO)
Maria Cantwell & Patty Murray (WASHINGTON) (2)
Tom Carper & Chris Coons (DELAWARE) (2)
Dianne Feinstein (CALIFORNIA)
Heidi Heitkamp (NORTH DAKOTA)
Tim Kaine & Mark Warner (VIRGINIA) (2)
Claire McCaskill (MISSOURI)
Bill Nelson (FLORIDA)
Jeanne Shaheen (NEW HAMPSHIRE)
Ron Wyden (OREGON)
+ SuperRAT, President BARACK OBAMA of ILLINOIS
ROBERT WEISSMAN: Well, it’s celebration day at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Big business just won its top priority for this U.S. Congress. If this deal—if the vote today ultimately leads to adoption of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, we know, with some high degree of certainty, what’s going to happen. We’re going to lose many more jobs in the United States. We’re going to have real downward pressure on wages and an increase, an ongoing increase, in the huge problem of inequality. We’re going to see huge empowerment for Big PhRMA and its ability to charge monopoly prices in all the TPP countries, the developing countries but also in the United States. And we’re going to see the creation and expansion of a special system that gives corporations the right to sue governments directly if those governments take action that the companies say infringe on their expected profits. It is a really horrible day for this country, notwithstanding what Mitch McConnell said. Continue reading
FAST TRACK Negotiating Authority For Trade Agreements! The Global Economy Is A SCAM Only Benefiting The Self-Centered Capitalists Around The Planet, Not The Average Working People In Any Country. Whenever Anyone Speaks Favorably About Free Trade Agreements Or Fast Track Authority, You Know Instantly That Person Is A) A Naïve, Propagandized Sponge Or B) A Lying Aristocratic Wannabe Or C) All The Above! World Problems Are Ubiquitous & Innumerable, But Solutions For Economic Problems Posed By Corporations & Governments INVARIABLY Favor Only Those With Deep Pockets & Avarice As Their Prime Directive, Not Average Working People. And These ‘Leaders’ Generally Spout Some Variation Of TINA (There Is No Alternative). What They Mean Is “No Alternative, Which Allows Capitalist Rogues To Profit Immensely On The Backs Of Average Working Stiffs!” Never Trust Anyone, Who Espouses These ‘Solutions’ – Political Poison Can Be Made To Please The Senses – At Least Until It Becomes Law!

“Congress has denied Fast Track for all but five of the past 21 years, with 171 Democrats and 71 GOP rejecting President Bill Clinton’s request in 1998. Since 1988, only Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush have convinced Congress to delegate Fast Track authority.
Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is an especially bad idea. After six years of negotiations, the text is almost complete. Yet under the Hatch-Wyden-Ryan Fast Track bill, the pact would remain secret from the public until 30 days after its text is locked. That this would occur 60 days before the formal signing ceremony is irrelevant, because it would be too late to fight for needed changes.” Continue reading

After 7-Years, Republican Rank & File Think He’s Liberal, Blacks Think He’s Our Very Best Friend Since Lincoln & White Democrats Are Scratching Their Heads!

Well, Folks, all I can say is, “Clarence Thomas is ALSO Black! And he’s a Republican! So enough of this ‘All Blacks are Beautiful’ thinking!
And enough of White Republicans on Long Island and elsewhere pretending that only Democrats do Bad Stuff!”
Obama isn’t doing anything New – Bush sent us to War in Iraq for Oil & War Profiteering! Yes Bush is a Republican!
And how do you think the Yankees got that new Stadium built, mostly from Tax Dollar$! Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, NYC Mayor then, sold it to the Voters and collected a FEE from the Steinbrenners!
Why would a Billionaire do that! He already has enough Money!
Sorry! “You can never be too Thin or too Rich!” Besides Bloomberg wasn’t quite ready to die yet, and he doesn’t know anything else beside MAKING CAPITALIST PROFITS – any which way he can! Bending the Rules creates EXCITEMENT for the Bloombergs of the World!
Why would Jack The Ripper keep on KILLING!

DEAN BAKER: Yeah, let me carry that even a step further with the prescription drugs, just to try and put some dollars and cents on that. We spend around $300 billion a year on prescription drugs. Without patent and other similar protection we’d be spending about $30 billion. So this is, you know, how much for paying extra for prescription drugs because we have patent-related protections.
Now you could imagine a trade agreement, if this was really about trade, we’d be going, “How can we bring those prices down?” But instead, what you have is the drug companies there, and they’re not talking about how to bring them down. They’re talking about how to bring them up. Primarily in other countries, but they’d like to bring them up in the United States as well.
BILL MOYERS: Is that free trade?
DEAN BAKER: It’s the opposite.
BILL MOYERS: That law, is the patent law free trade?
DEAN BAKER: It’s a protection. And that’s what I just find–
YVES SMITH: Right.
DEAN BAKER: –so amazing. It’s called patent protection. And then they’re going, “That’s free trade.” And No, this is a government-granted monopoly. And that just speaks to, you know, how convoluted our language has become, that it’s not free trade if we don’t extend the government-granted monopoly long into the future.
BILL MOYERS: Is it conceivable to you that this could affect the enforcement of Dodd-Frank, which was ostensibly passed to prevent another great crash like 2008? Could this affect the enforcement of Dodd-Frank?
YVES SMITH: Yeah. No, I mean, certainly the derivatives regulation, and I would expect the capital levels. There’s no–
BILL MOYERS: How? How would that work?
YVES SMITH: The first language in both these deals goes something along the lines with, “All signatories are required to make their laws and regulations conform to the standards of this agreement.” They are literally required to make their nation-based laws subordinate to the terms of these agreements. And again, we don’t know exactly what’s in them. But the whole notion is that they are to permit very liberalized capital flows and minimal restrictions. So like, Dodd-Frank basically is inconsistent with that.
BILL MOYERS: So foreign trade partners would conceivably be allowed to challenge American laws?
YVES SMITH: Yeah.
DEAN BAKER: That’s exactly the point— Continue reading
