These folks protesting Obama in the pictures above and below are not Tea Party folk. They’re labor unionists, environmentalists and other citizens deeply concerned about Obama’s financial ties to the 1 percent, most notably Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Publishing, the Genetically Modified Poison Industry, and Wall Street tycoons. This protest is taking place in LaJolla, California. President Obama was at a fundraiser, getting representatives from Big Pharma, Big Oil, Wall Street and lesser financial interests to pony up some big campaign contributions.

And these are just a few of the things that have been leaked from this secretly negotiated trade treaty, which is much to Obama’s liking, since the treaty negotiations are operating under his orders. By the way, a lot of Democrats in the Senate and the US House of Representatives, as well as all of the Republicans, like the terms of this treaty. This is especially true of Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden.
