On November 4, 2014, the six year battle of Wall Street Senator Mitch McConnell came to fruition. He won reelection as one of the many senators controlled by Wall Street investment firms, and the Big Oil/Wall Street Republican party took control of the US Senate. They already control the US House of Representatives.

For six years, Senator McConnell has blocked everything the then Democratic Senate majority proposed in the US Senate, everything from job creating public works projects to increasing the minimum wage. This was a political scorched Earth policy that sent millions of jobs up in smoke, for which Jon Stewart makes fun of below.

As the economy burned back in 2007-2009, due to the failed and long since discredited trickle down policies of President George W. Bush and fueled by the votes of Senator McConnell, the senator fought tooth and nail to fan the fires of economic destruction simply for political gain. He didn’t give a fart about the distress of millions of American citizens. He wanted President Obama to fail, to never get a second term, and willingly sacrificed the economic fortunes of millions of citizens in order to do so. The senator from Wall Street waged war against 99 percent of Americans and won.

The political miscreant is now in charge of the US senate.

The senator from Wall Street failed in his actions to deprive the president of a second term, but now he is about to become the Senate Majority Leader, arguably the third most powerful politician in the United States.

The president and the Wall Street senator will probably fight together to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and that’s possibly the only area where they might agree. The TPP is the largest income redistribution treaty of all time, it will gut the middle class by shipping millions of their jobs overseas and redistribute their income to the 1 percent, it will jack up prices of pharmaceutical medicines and other goods and services, curb Internet freedom, force people to eat GMO poison, drive millions of people illegally into the United States because it will gut millions of jobs in Latin America and redistribute the income from those jobs to the 1 percent, it will reduce US wages and salaries, it will prevent the US government from enacting Wall Street regulations, and on and on. And this information is solely from a few leaked documents. There is much more, but that is secret.

“Trade agreements,” McConnell said at a press conference on November 6, 2014. “The president and I were just talking about that right before I came over here. Most of his party is unenthusiastic about international trade. We think it’s good for America. And so, I’ve got a lot of members who believe that international trade agreements are a winner for America. And the president and I discussed that right before I came over here, and I think he’s interested in moving forward. I said, ‘Send us trade agreements. We’re anxious to take a look at them.’”

The TPP, in effect, is McConnell’s wet dream come true; destroy the middle class and redistribute their income to the 1 percent. That’s why the senator belongs to Wall Street.
